Favorite LoZ game: Mask of Majula, Link to the Past
Triforce Section: I like the Triforce of Wisdom <3

What is your favorite character, and why?
Majula and Zant. I like their personalities because they're both serious/sinister and immature at the same time. I prefer Majula though overall. Majula also has my favourite theme in the Zelda series.

ALSO BENNNNN if he counts. I shouldn't have done that.

What is your favorite instrument used in the games?
I don't have a favourite.

Who is your favorite partner? (Midna, Navi, etc.)
Tatl or Epona.

Favorite LoZ game: Majora's Mask babyyy
Triforce Section: Power

What is your favorite character, and why?
Vaati and Skull Kid. Vaati because he's overall a snobbish, evil sorcerer and I love evil characters, and Skull Kid because of all the details they put into him. Both of them just look really awesome in design, too.

What is your favorite instrument used in the games?
Huh... not sure. I guess the Ocarina.

Who is your favorite partner? (Midna, Navi, etc.)
Midna is mah gurl <3

Lol, I like the ocarina, too. I actually have a model of the ocarina of time that I can play a few songs on. :)

Why is everyone's favorite Majora's mask? I personally like Skyward Sword (Probably because that's the only LoZ game I've beat as of now.) Lol. I'm so pathetic.

I find the story and characters and gameplay more refreshing and non-boring in MoM. It's almost very......dark? Gothicy? The rest are just kind of more adventure/fantasy for me. The plot in MoM is also more original than the overly done "A guy wants to rule the place" bit we see almost in every other Zelda series game. I like Ganondorf and all but he's just rather cliche.

Most people like Majora's Mask for the dark plot it has. There's a lot of really creepy things in that game. I mean, Link wears the masks of dead people. I think that's pretty cool lmao, but I just really like darker games.
Skyward Sword is my second favorite. I love the dungeons and flying <3 Plus yeah, the dungeons are easy enough for me to do on my own thank goodness

Which one is Skyward Swords? If It's newer, I probably haven't played it. I'm mostly an old(er) school gamer. They just don't make games like they used to nowadays XD

Triforce Section: Wisdom...I'm apparently wise. lol

What is your favorite character, and why?
This is actually kind of hard, considering there are so many. As far as minor characters go, I think I'll go with the shaman in Twilight Princess. I don't remember his name, but he's my favorite because I call him Jesus Kravitz. That's not even a canon reason. As for main characters, I'm going to be totally and completely generic and say Link. BUT WHICH LINK!? I totally love Skyward Sword Link. I haven't played the game, but this Link seems to have some more emotion in him than any other Link from any other game. I'm a huge OoT Young Link fan too. Cause. idk.

What is your favorite instrument used in the games?
Probably the Ocarina, because I remember thinking it was so unusual, and as more Zelda games came out, I realized how unusual it was compared to, say, flutes, a harp, wooden pipe thingies, the freaking grass...yeah. lol

Who is your favorite partner?
Midna, hands down. She had the most character out of any partner imo. I like Tatl too, even though I'm not a huge Majora's Mask fan.

Also, for anyone interested, I'm doing an RNG project in Pokemon Black that relates to Zelda. Once it's finished, I'll post it, or link to where I post it. It's probably not going to fit into canon very well for all you Zelda buffs here, but I tried my best to fit the stories in as well as I could. But you'll see when it's done. :)

edit: RENADO!

It's the latest one for the Wii, so that's why you haven't played it I'm sure. I haven't played it either. I've just been watching an LP of the game and haven't found my selling point till just recently, and it's far into the game and a major plot point. I won't say what, but I am kind of disappointed it took me that long to get interested in it. The flying looks boring. At least sailing in Wind Waker was nice because you had a different island in each square. I'm gonna go ramble to someone else now lol.

Jacinth
June 5th, 2012, 01:01 PM
I love the flying. :) It makes me want a loftwing.
I've loved SS from the beginning. In fact, I just came back from playing it. LOL. My favorite part is running around with my sword in the air.
And Ghirahim.
OH GHIRAHIM.
I think I have a fangirl crush on him. XD JK

Anyways, I was thinking about making a LoZ RPG. Would any of you be interested in that?

Sydian
June 5th, 2012, 01:10 PM
The flying just looks so boring and tedious, idk. I mean, I'll probably get Skyward Sword in due time. That beginning tutorial is treacherous though. Soooo long.

Anyway, as of lately, I've been playing Ocarina of Time 3D and right now I'm really mad at myself cause I apparently missed a Heart Piece. I can only think of two more I need and don't know where I possibly missed one. So that's bugging me. A lot. :( And I was playing Twilight Princess, but I'm not at my house now so I'll get back to that when I get home. Getting ready for Lakebed Temple. Trying to get into Majora's Mask by watching videos, but there's no way I can beat this game without a guide. lol

OH AND I have a Link plushie! It's Phantom Hourglass Link, which is fine and dandy cause it's Link, but I don't like the DS Zelda titles really. But a plushie is a plushie.

As for the RP, you mean here on PC? I doubt I'd do it myself. I'm not big into RP. Besides, what fun is RPing a temple when you can be Link himself and go do the temple in the game? ;) kekekeke.

Jacinth
June 5th, 2012, 04:47 PM
Yeah, it's a bit annoying, especially if you're replaying it. However, it comes in handy if you haven't played it before. Take it from me, its not easy to get the hang of.

Lol, I'm stuck on Ocarina of Time too. My save files have a nasty habit of deleting themselves, so when I got to the shadow temple, I had to restart. As of now, I'm at dodongo's cavern, which is annoying the crap out of me. I've already had to buy 2 deku shields. :( But, good luck with the lakebed temple! :D

You have a fluffy Link?
:D :D :D :D :D :D
YUSSS
I've always wanted to have a room full of plushie Link's and just dive into it. So fun!~

Too bad I don't have one of my own....

Yes, you has many good points. I don't know many in this club that RP.
Anywhoes, it's easier to just pick up a game and play LoZ. :)

What is your favorite character, and why?
My favourite character is Link, because I'm unoriginal. BT That aside though, I just like the green-clad hero. My favourite Link is Twilight Princess Link. I love his design and the fact that he can change into a Wolf. Telma once said that his eyes resembled that of a Feral Beast. She was right.
My second favourite Link is the Skyward Sword Link. He's just so adorkable. |D;

Besides the Link, I could put up Dark Link (although his character is more fanon than canon), Midna, Zelda (SS).

What is your favorite instrument used in the games?
The Ocarina. I loved how you could play very nice songs with very little notes.
Some of the songs form Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are really something.

Who is your favorite partner? (Midna, Navi, etc.)
Midna. Hands down. She's just a great character. She has a wonderful personality, whith a full background story (unlike most of the others who're just kinda there to help Link). I'm also somewhat of a TwiLinkxMidna fan. I say somewhat, because I'm pro, but not an active shipper. |3 I kinda she returns, but I'll be alright if she doesn't.

I also found Navi, the King of Red Lions and Fi to be worthy to be remembered. I'm not far enough in Majora's Mask yet to form my oppinion on Tatl...and I haven't played any of the DS games yet. I was kind of relieved they changed Navi's "Hey! Listen!" to Tatl's /tjingle/, but I'm not one of the Navi haters. |3


@Jacinth: Oh, gosh, Dodongo's Cavern. I remember on my last playthrough of Ocarina of Time MQ (NGC) that I constantly had to return to the Deku Shrub selling them... to the point where it got annoying.

Sydian
June 6th, 2012, 09:46 AM
Why do y'all have Deku Shields in Dodongo's Cavern? You could buy a Hylian Shield in Castle Town. :( And I think the guard on Death Mountain Trail gives you a discount on a shield if you bring him a Keaton Mask. Plus I think you can find a Hylian Shield in a chest in the Graveyard. I just remember never having the "your shield is gone!" problem in there haha.

I actually like Navi. I had a fun time in 8th grade making comics that starred her, Tatl, and Tael. And even an awesome OoT comic, though it only featured the child dungeons at the beginning of the game. Reading it now, I got a lot of things in the story wrong and missed some key points, but oh well. I LOVE BOATY!! Because you can sail in him and sing Come Sail Away! But Fi is annoying...she just seems so robotic and emotionless. It really bothers me. "Megaman Megaman!!" for any NCS fans in here, haha. I love her design though, so I'll give her that.

Basically because the Hylian Shield is hard to use as a counter for Deku Shrub merchants and other thingies that shoot at you. I vaguely remember just wanting to finish the game with a complete inventory. But the former is also true.

Don't get me wrong, I adore her. Reading that she's the most mentioned in the "Most hated videogame character" thread kind of makes me sad. I've seen a comic somewhere where they showed where Link would be without her. Clearly the answer is "nowhere". |D
Haha, yes. |D I also love how pressing the King of Red Lions is: "HURRY UP BEFORE GANONDORF REALISES WE'RE UP TO SOMETHING!"
"Oh, it seems that this dreadful cursed night will not end soon, no need to hurry, we got all the time in the world"
"NOW HURRY TO SAVE YOUR SISTER! AND THE WORLD!"
Link: "...." *gets nearly killed by Ganondorf*

I like Fi mainly for the scenes where she dances as Link plays the harp. Her robotic attitude didn't really bother me that much, as she states herself she's not very emotional. Her dry way of talking kind of amused me, in fact.

"Master, your batteries are nearly depleted."
"My what?"


But then again I see room for a more emotional Sword Spirit. And her singing animation was too stiff!
I still found the Fi's Goodbye to be a sad one, though. : < Sometimes I wonder if Link will ever get to keep one of his traveling companions.

I skipped the Scrubs when I saw them, or just switched my shield. I just have to play that game a certain way, haha. Have to have this that and this before I go off to wherever. Never cared about Skulltulas though. By the time you have them all, you don't really need that reward. lol

NAVI GOING AWAY MAKES ME SAD. :( :( :( In Wind Waker though, I was just like "...I've been riding in the king? ...Ummm..."

Fi has dance skills ya. Her mouth is SCARY when she sings though. The LPer I was watching was all "OMG HER MOUTH IS SCARY LOOK AT THAT." And I saw the battiery thing and thought that was funny. Way to break the fourth wall. ;)

June 6th, 2012, 01:09 PM
I wasn't too fond of the Hylian shield while playing as a child. I didn't like the limited movement while defending. I do admit that it was pretty handy when fighting King Dodongo, though. It's not hard to imagine where Skyward Sword's unbreakable shield came from if it doesn't mind a gigantic dinosaur rolling over it (even protecting it's wearing against pressure).

Yeah, you don't really need it anymore. It's the case with a lot of minigames in OoT, though. Either you're already quite far, or your wallet doesn't have enough space. Imagine my face when I found a 200 Rupee in Kakariko and then I noticed it added only 2 of those. I wish OoT had more possibilities to give away your money. In the end I just did them all to just finish MQ, can't say I enjoyed all minigames (but most of them), but the most hated minigame stays Roll Goal (TP) though. |D

Yeah, it's kind of sad how she just leaves him. There are a lot of theories while she left, one being that she was in love with Link (what?) and left him because they couldn't be together. Another one is because Link simply didn't need her anymore, having finished his quest as the hero... and being a Hylian.
Whatever the reason, I think that Link was justified going on a quest to find her. It's kind of odd none the less that she'd leave him just like that after all they had been through.

Yeah, fourth wall breaking was amusing... until you realise that the Wiimote just drains batteries and that you need to have spare pair ready! |D

Favorite Game: Ocarina of Time! Majora's Mask comes close, I love how dark the story is compared to the other games.
Triforce: Wisdom (I'm a nerd :P)

I'm going to bring up something I brought up with the last Zelda club. (Which I guess is dead now) There is an amazing hack of Ocarina of Time that lets the game be 4-player compatible. It works on very few emulators and has quite a lot of bugs but it's multiplayer Ocarina of Time! What's not to like? Since Project 64 has an internet feature, (that I've yet to understand) it's possible to play Ocarina of Time online. So maybe we can all play on the same game online! Just throwing the idea out there.
Here's a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rythJ1xn2NE&list=UUvCBpbkd9lwObOxVN1MuDtA&index=5&feature=plcp

Back on topic,
I think the guard on Death Mountain Trail gives you a discount on a shield if you bring him a Keaton Mask.

Objection! Paying 85 Rupees instead of 90 (And needing 90 to pay for the 85 anyways) should not count as a discount!

Sydian
June 6th, 2012, 01:34 PM
I usually busted out my Deku Shield for Lizalfos fights (can't spell hurrr), but I thought Link looked so cute with his huge Hylian Shield. I need a life. :( Gotta stop pinching kids' cheeks.

Happened to me too! Actually first time I went down that hole, I remember ReDeads being there. So...I left. lol Then I thought "WELL that might have been important" so I went back and wanted to scream when I opened the chest. lol But then I also hate in TP where you PUT IT BACK. Cause them I look on the map to see if I got everything and usually forget if it was rupees and back tracks and ugh. :(

In my comic, she was in love with him and thought the whole journey was them looking for a place to get married. Eventually when Link pulls the Master Sword and goes 7 years into the future, she's already in a wedding dress and says, "Time to get married!" and Link just looks at her and puts the sword back. She gets mad and he's like, "I just wanted to see what I look like in seven years." to which she replies with, "Well...you were a HUNK!" Then silence. And he leaves and says, "Bye, Navi." lol Though I think it was the latter reason you said. It's not in his race to have a fairy and Navi had served her purpose. So it makes sense that she'd leave. But then in the beginning of Majora's Mask (I think) it mentions he was looking for a long lost friend...so it's like...idk. Obviously he didn't want her to leave...if, of course, you make the assumption that the friend is Navi.

I don't have to worry about that. 8) No Wii Zelda titles are in my possession! Though I should fix that.

Objection! Paying 85 Rupees instead of 90 (And needing 90 to pay for the 85 anyways) should not count as a discount!

Never said it was a good discount. ;P I've never done the discount thing myself, so I never even knew it was that bad of one. lol

June 6th, 2012, 11:19 PM
I won't deny that! |D Small kids with huge objects are adorable. It was kind of cute how he just hunched below the Hylian Shield, letting nothing in the big, scary overworld get to him.

TP just needed a bigger wallet. BT If you put Twilight Princess and The Wind Waker on the same height on the split Time Line, you could start rambling on how all the chests WindLink finds on the bottom of the ocean are the same kazillion chests TwiLink finds in Hyrule Field. Then it's quite logical to urge TwiLink to get a bigger wallet, seeing how Wind ends up having one of 5000. It's kind of odd that TwiLink gets his 1000Rupee upgrade only after having collected all Golden Bugs. By then, he's ran all over Hyrule field, probably finding a loooot of chests whose contents did not fit in his wallet.
I just thought that putting it back was better than wasting 199 rupees. |D;


Oh, that's a pretty neat idea, quite amusing as well. |D
I always assumed that it was Navi. Other possibilities would be Malon, Zelda or Saria... but seeing as he already met Zelda at the end of OoT and Malon gave him Epona... it's either Saria or Navi. I always thought he and Saria somehow already said their goodbyes in the Forest Temple.... but childtimeline!Saria wouldn't know that (unless you consider her Sage powers crossing time and space).


Oh, yes, you should deffinitally fix that!

Sydian
June 7th, 2012, 08:35 AM
I knooow. I'll admit, I got into Zelda because of Young Link in SSBM. He was adorable, so I had to play the game he was from! I didn't get a hold of it for a while though and started with Wind Waker instead. But I read a lot of stuff on OoT and it's fascinated me before I even played it. Then my babysitter gave me her copy of the game so I was set. 8)

TP's wallet makes me cry lmao. Especially with all those chests. But I can't think of anything overly expensive you had to pay for in TP other than like...repairing the bridge for 1000. In Wind Waker, you needed around 3k (probably more...some obscure number iirc) to pay Tingle and get all those Triforce Charts decoded. >:/ So the huge wallet had a purpose! On another money-related note, I hate how in TP and SS, we have to STOP EVERYTHING and examine a blue rupee. Or yellow. Or anything that's not green. Why... ;;

I always assumed it wasn't Saria because she became the sage...and I thought Link would have common sense to check the forest for her if that's who he was looking for. Navi, on the other hand, is a tiny ball of light that could be anywhere. I always thought Link remembered the things he did as an adult even though at the end, he got to live his childhood, similar to how in Majora's Mask (even though this is obviously after OoT) your major items carry over and Tatl remembers things. So idk. Maybe he was looking for Mido... -_- Nahhh.

When I get the money! I might just wait around for my birthday and ask for it. I wanna import Black 2 so my money is getting devoted to that first haha.

June 7th, 2012, 09:26 AM
It's the same how I got into Fire Emblem: Through Marth in SSBB. :'D My first introduction The Legend of Zelda was with Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons. My dad had downloaded a bunch of roms, and those looked interesting to me. Although, I had (and still have) a lot of trouble playing the 2D games on computer I quite enjoyed them (despite getting stuck in the first dungeon and ragequiting). I think I was 11 or something. Then when I was 14 I could borrow the Minish Cap from a classmate ('Because the title looked familiar) and that was the first game I completed. \o/
Thought it was Twilight Princess that got me into playing them all though. :'D Something I've yet to achieve, but I'm getting there. |D;

Yeah, you had to pay for the bridge, for the shop in Castle Town and the magic Armor. But it's not like that added to a lot of money, specially when Agitha gave you 500 rupees for every completed pair of bugs you gave her. BT

Stop everywhere? Isn't that only the first time (since turning the game on) that you examine them?

Yeah, I'm also convinced Link kept his memories of being the Hero of Time. And that he kind of lived "those few weeks/months" of his 17th year twice, once "normally" and once as a Hero.

Hoho! Seems like you could use one of those orange rupees that didn't fit in Twi's wallet.

I have Ages (I think?) somewhere at my mom's, and MC too. I am awful at 2D Zelda, so don't feel bad. lol I'd like to beat all the Zelda games, but those 2D ones will kick my butt. Wind Waker was the first one I beat. Didn't have all the heart containers though and that's a huge pet peeve of mine lol. :( Well, it is now. Not at that time. lol I'm only missing a few games though! Only need Link's Awakening, Oracle of whichever I don't have, and the UGH DS titles.

Yeah, and no where to put all that money. :( I guess it pays (literally) to be a cartoon? ;3

Wellll yeah, but it still made me not wanna pick up rupees when I started up the game. XD

Must have been fun. Some people think Young Link is 7 and then becomes 14 though. idk. I always thought he was 10 then becomes 17. It makes more sense and looks more like that.

That'd be awesome lol. Might go find another orange rupee and get Tales of the Abyss while I'm at it. ;)

Anyways, I just beat SS this morning! I got the Hylian Shield in Thunder Dragon's Lightning Round, and then I went and kicked his butt. :D

I'm not the only one?! YES!! Sorry, but it feels great to know that I'm not the only one suffering from the 2D games. |D I know what it feels like. I'm at the door of Ganon's castle and I miss one heart piece in a Link to the Past... I wonder where I left it. : <
I still need to play Link's Awakening, LoZI, LoZII, Four Swords Adventure, Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks (and OoT 3D). I need to finish Majora's Mask (playing -2nd temple), A Link to the Past (Playing - Ganon's castle), Skyward Sword (Playing - Hero Mode/Ancient Cistern), (Minish Cap - Playing/Vaati's Castle), Oracle of Seasons (Onox Battle. This was a linked game that I borrowed from someone... I doubt I'll ever be able to link again. ;;).
(and yes, playing means that I'm currently playing the game. |D It's complicated why I'm playing that many at once).

I always thought 7-9 was just a bit too young to travel around Hyrule to beat the bad guys. BT 10 is still young, but at least 17 is more acceptable. =/ OoT Link (Adult) looks more 17 than 14 anyways.


Maybe I have to do that as well. |D;


And yay for having the Triforce of Courage. \o/
I know what you mean. : < Fi's goodbye was sad, but I love the song that plays then. <3 I'm a fan of Fi's theme in general... but...hm <3

Oh, good luck with the Hero mode! As you read earlier, I'm going through it myself. The first half was very hard (hence the name) to me, since I was more often than not in need of heart( flower)s. I was kind of happy when I got the Heart Medal. But now I feel like I'm cheating. |D

Thanks!!
Of course I knew that! How many times I was just running back and forth between the inner heart of Skyview Temple and the small wooden chair next to the tree just outside the temple.
I was so amused when I found what these odd chairs do exactly (it was the first time I got to the Sealing Temple, on my first play through). I gotta admit, my most embarrassing moment in Skyward Sword was in the Hero Mode... Game Over thanks to the two Deku Babas you meat right after landing in the Sealing Grounds. Never again am I going to try and hit (a/two) Deku babas with my sword... Skyward Strike all the way!

Good luck to y'all in hero mode. :) I need to get off my arse, beat OoT and then do Master Quest. idk what to do in regards to that missing heart piece though. I was thinking of back tracking all the heart pieces I'm slightly unsure about getting (though I have a great memory and looking at a list, I remember getting all the ones I've been able to get, so...) which would be like...mini-game pieces, I guess. I might have run out of money and went off to get more, then forgot to go back? idk. Bombchu bowling, here I come!

I haven't actually played too many games, I got the 2nd one (I forget what it's called but Zelda starts off sleeping) free when I bought my Gameboy as a kid but I could never beat it, too difficult.

Thanks, Sydian. :'D I'll need it. I think I already lost count of how many times I GO'd. |D Bumbchu bowling was actually pretty easy. Once you figured out where to release your Bombchu, it wasn't hard to get 3/3.

I heard of many people who got the game, but still needed the wii motion plus. =/ But don't worry, it's worth the wait~ It'll be another three weeks before I can play again... it's killing me. |D;

Favorite LoZ game: Wind Waker. I thought the graphics were a unique but good change, and the game had its decently intense and challenging moments. Disagree? I guess it could be only my opinion.
Triforce Section: (Power, Wisdom, Courage, or none.) Courage. The one I'm sure a lot of people have gone after, but it is the part of the Triforce that displays me the most. I have been striving for Courage for years now.

On an off note to all of this, I think I am going to attempt the Hero Mode on Skyward Sword and Master Quest soon. I've never tried these super-challenging modes before, so I will consider it a huge accomplishment in my sad video-gaming life if I manage to beat both of these before school starts up again.

Triforce Section: None? I dunno... I've never really thought about it. :o

I went and got Skyward Sword the day it came out. I have the collector's edition sitting proudly on my shelf next to all my other prized possessions!

I'm currently finishing up Minish Cap... I can't believe I'm the only person I know who has played that one. I've been really enjoying it. I guess when it came out was just a bad time, I dunno.

I've been wanting to play Minish Cap again for awhile now. Too bad I have no idea where it is :(. I thought it was a decent game. Not the best Zelda game, but it was a good way to pass the time.

Sydian
June 12th, 2012, 05:49 PM
Minish Cap is a good little pick up and play game, actually! I was really into it back ummm...shoot. I can't remember when it was. Probably the summer before 9th grade. /old man ANYWAY I would sit next to the computer and read a walkthrough and do everything in the walkthrough haha. Like I've said before, I'm bad at 2D Zelda. So no shame in what I did. :P It's an odd and lazy thing to do, but it's nostalgic for me. Last thing I remember doing in MC was being in the Wind Palace or something. I think MC is in my game drawer here...and if not, it's somewhere at my mom's. Maybe I'll restart for old time's sake. :)

You should! It has a weird style that none of the other games have. I guess that's due to it being a bit... weird, lol. I was actually surprised by how much I enjoy it. I found it for really cheap and hadn't played it... so yeah. I actually got stuck a few times in it, which is something I haven't done with Zelda in yeeeears. I love that feeling.

Sydian
June 12th, 2012, 06:00 PM
That Kinstone stuff is pretty crazy, but unique haha. I always liked it. I should have looked up a guide for that to know who to exchange with and stuff. And I'm the opposite. I hate getting stuck in any game and I'll get frustrated or bored that I can't just keep going and I'll be done for the day. I've gotten better though, as far as 3D Zelda goes. I figured out the Water Temple in OoT 3D all by myself. No help! And I did Goron Mines in TP by myself too. The latter isn't particularly hard, but still when you're as bad as me, it's an accomplishment!

I'm at the Water Temple in Oot right now and I literally just stopped playing it since I'm clueless on what to do. HOW DID YOU FIGURE IT OUT BY YOURSELF? You must have an enormous brain.

I've done all of Skyward Sword by myself, it's a little easier, but I like it that way. I did a few of the last dungeons of TP by myself and the first two, and the first and fire dungeons of OoT. I'm a huge fail when it comes to puzzles, which is stupid since thats all of what LoZ is, but yeah

Sydian
June 12th, 2012, 06:14 PM
Aw, I'd let you borrow my copy if I could! GBA games are hard to get ahold of these days. Always faked and stuff. :/ Your best bet would be to find a used game store (not a GameStop, because I don't think they check for fakes, plus I don't think they even offer GBA games anymore).

I'm dummmmbbbbb. I also had a smidge of prior knowledge from doing it before, but I mean, the last time I did the Water Temple was my senior year of high school, so it's been well over two years. The OoT 3D Water Temple has colored areas for each hall that leads to a place to raise/lower the water, so that really helps. I honestly don't know how I did it without help. My boyfriend didn't even believe that I did it without help, lol.

If you did SS without help, but can't do the Water Temple, maybe I won't be that bad at SS! 8D /shot

I normally like to do temples in nonstop runs, but after I got the Longshot, I had had enough of the Water Temple for the day, and I felt that it was a good stopping spot since I could easily remember I just got the Longshot lol. But yeah, no help. So proud. :'D Would have been better if I could say I beat the Water Temple with no help my first time through on the N64...but no, sorry. :(

If I had internet at the time, I'd have been looking up a solution for that one for sure @_@; I swear, I felt like the rest of the game was fairly easy compared to that... nightmare. D:

Oh man, I really want to replay OoT sometime now. Gaaaaaaah.

-Grayscale-
June 12th, 2012, 10:10 PM
Thinking about it now, I think that the most challenging dungeons overall are the Water Dungeons.

You could not, I repeat, could not get through the water dungeon in Twilight Princess without help of some sort or days of work on it. I'm pretty sure it takes 3-4 hours to get through with a freaking guide. Then there's Majora's Mask, and the water dungeon in there is said to be one of the hardest dungeons of all time. And now OoT stumped me at, yet again, another water dungeon. WhatisthisNintendo

But I don't have many games sooo :B Those 3 are just my take on them.
I really wanna play OoT now... but I'm always so lazy to search for a walk through OTL

But but but, the Water Temple in Skyward Sword is very neat. o3o If you can call the Ancient Cistern a "water temple". Though the actual equivalent of the water temple
call it a sand temple if you want is not as great a pleasure. It's pretty fun to go through some of parts and I thought the Time Shift stone were pretty neat... But. Hng. The music gets annoying after a while. |D

UWKXwSZcQlo

I actually thought the Water Temple was okay last time I played OoT:MQ. I didn't really get stuck this time, and the map was actually a great help. Though, I do remember the first time that I played OoT (the previous line was the third time playing any OoT, I hadn't finished MQ on my second play through) I got lost, so lost. I hoped that I would be able to reset the puzzles if I left, but I nearly freaked out when I noticed they didn't. When I found the way I was kinda very happy. |D Maybe it's because I'm older (if only 4 years), but the WT didn't scare me as much as I remember. : >

The Lakebed Temple was actually pretty fun. It's just annoying to have to move the stairs a kazillion times to go to a place you've already been to. |D
The Swamp Temple in a Link to the past was okay. I remember having to redo it a few times (I'm not good with 2D). The Droplet Temple in Minish cap was pretty fun, though I hated those flying plants (or w/e) that dropped water on you.

There was no Water Temple in Wind Waker. \o/ Go find Jabun instead. |D


I completely geeked out when I was listening to this cd. It was like going through all those years when I first played all those Zelda games again. It was a huge blast from the past. I can't imagine what kind of an impact it would have had on me if I actually heard the Symphony live :0.

I've never tried these super-challenging modes before, so I will consider it a huge accomplishment in my sad video-gaming life if I manage to beat both of these before school starts up again. Haha wish me luck


I know the feeling. I squeed with joy when I heard the first tunes of the 25th Anniversary Melody, and I was overjoyed to recognise a lot of the melodies they put in that song. During the Wind Waker Symphony, I could basically tell when the scenes were playing. The Twilight Princess Symphonic Movement was pure joy (to me, it's the strongest track on the CD) and I really wanted to go ride Epona through Hyrule Field. |D

I was wondering though... does anyone understand what they're singing in the TPS? All I can make of it is "mighty portal" (at 4:36 and 4:55)... but I doubt that's the actual text. ._.

From what I understand, MQ Water Temple is easier than the normal one, and arguably the easiest temple in MQ. -shrug- Great Bay Temple has awesome music, so it's excused from being anno-- lol jk it's not. None of them are. :( Though they all have great music. Lakebed is poop and I was playing TP a bit yesterday hunting bugs, but it had been so long since I played that I went all the way to Castle Town only to find I had already been there. Stupid. lol So I was like "well...shoot I ain't going back to the Lake after that bye TP see you tomorrow." :( Droplet Temple's boss gave me a lot of trouble. I actually for a while thought that that's where I left off last time I played MC, but no...it's not. I did manage to beat it at some point haha.

Buuuut you know, I have to praise TP (yeah from MC to TP lol) for its dungeons. In my opinion, they are probably the most well crafted and just stunning to look at. They all seem like they would legitimately exist. I love the OoT Temples, but I had a hard time thinking the Fire and Water Temples really existed with some sort of purpose. I think about them a lot, like about what people are supposed to do there haha. But in TP, I can think of something that goes on in each temple. I think about temples and dungeon a LOT sorry lol. :(

Also! I would mayyyybe consider Tower of the Gods in WW as a sort of Water Temple. There's water in there! Totally counts. lol Nahhh it's more like a light temple if anything. Favorite temple in WW though. So much fun to command statues lol.

Kotowari
June 13th, 2012, 12:50 PM
I agree with what you said about the temples, btw. In Twilight Princess they at least looked like something that would have been used as a temple or anything else that suits the environment. The Goron Mines are active mines, the Forest Temple is lived in (and an actual tree, not a strange stone building in the forest), the Temple of Time almost looked like a church, the Twilight Palace was the royal palace of the Twili...
All the temples actually blended well with their environment.

That was one of my quirks with Ocarina of Time. All of the dungeons are called "temples", but not all of them seem to suit the function. The Forest Temple somewhat bothered me the most...

Sydian
June 13th, 2012, 01:16 PM
They would have been more appropriate as Forest Mansion, Fire Temple, Water Temple, Shadow Chamber, and Spirit Temple. Now that I look at them more and think about it, the Fire Temple could have been destroyed and when Link goes through it, that's what we see is a demolished and broken version of it and perhaps it would have been different in the past. I can't say the same for the Water Temple though. It's just a hot (wet?) mess. lol Spirit Temple is a gorgeous temple and seems like a headquarters for people. ...Small people, on one side anyway. And giants on the other. lol I still like them all and think they're totally unique though! Even though the Forest "Temple" isn't really deserving of the title, it's my favorite because it's just so different.

Also, I think another reason the TP temples fit so well is because some of them aren't titled as a temple. You have Goron Mines, not Goron Temple. And you have City in the Sky, not Sky Temple. So you know, they're more fitting because they're named appropriately.

I'm such a dungeon freak and I need a life lol. I always wonder if people go pray in the temples in OoT or something lol. But who in the WORLD would pray in the Shadow Temple? Temple implies a haven and a place of peace and prayer, perhaps a gathering for religious followings. I guess everyone that goes to the Shadow Temple are Satanists? lol

Algo Fonix
June 13th, 2012, 04:20 PM
Oh wow. I never thought about it like that. >_> It'd take one bunch of messed up individuals to go praying in the Shadow Temple. Like, first off... it's crazy hard to get to, and once you're inside it's like a frickin' creepy.

I always wonder about the skeletons and redeads that fight in you in temples. What exactly are they-- dead knights? After all, there are voices of Hyrule Knights that whisper throughout the Shadow Temple. It makes me wonder then if it was a place that knights used to come to long ago. Either way, it creeps me out.

And then I wonder where all the weapons come from like the bow or hookshot. Did they used to belong to adventurers and were lost, or have they always been the monsters'?

I wonder about stupid stuff, I guess. I really need to get a life :D

Sydian
June 13th, 2012, 06:26 PM
NO. YOU'RE LIKE ME. :) I think about weird things in the temples allllllll the time. I figured the same thing about the items and the ReDeads. Actually, though this isn't confirmed, apparently Bongo Bongo was a real person that was a thief (hence why his hands are cut off) and he was banished to either the Bottom of the Well or the Shadow Temple (I don't remember) and he killed people etc. I don't know the full story, but you can read it on the Zelda wiki on Bongo Bongo's page. Very interesting! So maybe the Shadow Temple at one time really was a place that would be more considered a place of prayer and peace. But that boat to the other side still mystifies me.

Altairis
June 13th, 2012, 07:04 PM
When I'm in the Temples all I would think about was how these people made the temples and why they would make them complicated (coughwatertemplecough) like why would they go to all that trouble? Especially if you could only use a bow, hookshot, etc.

I just got to the Temple of Time in Twilight Princess and when Link put the sword in the pedestal I was thinking NO LINK WHAT ARE YOU DOING because I thought he was going to go back in time like in OoT. The temple part itself and the music was exactly the same I got all nostalgic. lol.

I just read that and it is really interesting, Sydian! But it's kinda strange, how would he turn into a massive shadowy thing..? I guess we just have to keep wondering.

Sydian
June 13th, 2012, 07:17 PM
One might wonder that about buildings in real life though. Some buildings are just overly complicated and have secret doors and all this crazy stuff inside. Oh...which makes me think, since you brought up items...don't have an answer for those OoT temples BUT. I think that in Arbiter's Grounds, perhaps it belonged to a secret society. Only this secret society was given the Spinners so that they could get through their headquarters and intruders could not. Though, imagine Arbiter's Grounds fixed up some more haha. I imagine that by the time Link gets there, it's been there several hundred years and has had its fair share of wear and tear haha.

As for Bongo Bongo, I assume his soul was restless and his spirit lives on in the form of...a penis with hands. lol That's just what I think though, hence why he's still there in that shadow form and the other form that Link fights.

Bzzzzzzzt talking about temples makes me excited to finish my RNG project since it's Zelda related. Hopefully y'all will like it. XD

It did seem very secret society ish. Something interesting that I read about the Temple of Time dungeon in TP regarding the spinner rails. It said that in the game maybe someone knew that Link would come to the Temple so that's why they were there. But the Temple looks old so they'd have to see into the future and..?! idk it seemed interesting so I decided to share. I haven't even finished the game so I don't know if anyone mentions this again, haha.

Jumping back in with a reply to earlier posts:

What also intrigues me is how the temples throughout the different games link to each other. The most remarkable one is the Temple of Time. Keeping only in mind the one thingy that links them all, The Master Sword, the temple of Time in Ocarina of Time seems closest to Hyrule Castle in WW, whereas Sealed/Hylia's Temple compares better to Twilight Princess' Temple of Time and a Link to the Past's Pedestal of Time. Some theories speculate on how the Master Sword was moved throughout the ages, but that seems somewhat farfetched in my oppinion.


What I am inclined to believe, however, is Lanayru Temple of Time -> Spirit Temple -> Arbiter's Grounds. Not only to the ST and AG both feature the Sand Goddess (?) with the Snake, AG and LTOT both feature a mirror-like portal to a different realm (time/space) and the ST forces you to travel through time to complete it (that and the mirror shield /shot'd). It's also not hard to believe that criminals were judged in the temples of the desert. With the tumultous history of Lanayru of war and what not... you could also think that the Gerudo (and their ancestors) weren't kind with intruders and sent them to be judged before the Sand Goddess. As a final, there's the Arbiter's Grounds where criminals were judged (see Ganondorf, right there, though that was OoT in TP |D). I don't know what to make of the Arbiter's grounds... it's got a mix of a prison, a place of death (redeads/poes) and a sacred place.

My guess about the Shadow Temple is that it's more of a mausoleum/prison than an actual temple (or that the temple/place of prayer is restricted to the first room with all the torches). We shouldn't forget that the Shadow Temple is directly linked to Hyrule's Bloody History of War.... War is a horrible time... so it's not hard to imagine that the Shadow Temple and the Well were used for horrible things. BT

Big Tree (SS) - > Great Deku Tree (OoT) -> Forest Temple (TP)? 8D;

I'm not a fan of the 3-split timeline either.... that's my biggest concern about the offical timeline. I don't like the idea that there's a probable time line. It creates the thought that those games could have never happened. And though I support the idea that a hero might fail, I don't think OoT Link is the one that should bear the responsability for the triple split. Maybe the Link before him, but not OoT Link... OoT Link doesn't fail.

Ew I don't even want to begin talking about timeline theories. We could be here all day haha.

From what I see, there are a lot of different ones, hence the word "theory." I guess it depends on what you think and how long you will sit there and logic things out. All I know for sure is Wind Waker is one of the more modern times in the timeline. I haven't played that game for awhile sadly, but wasn't Hyrule drowned away after Link defeated Ganon at some point? This makes me push this game farther down the timeline for sure. But the other games..... I have no clue where to put them.

Sydian
June 14th, 2012, 08:19 AM
But now that there actually is a canon timeline, the theories are kinda put to rest...unless you think they're better and still believe in them haha. I just find it funny that the first two games are at the end of one of those timelines. Ironic. And I agree, OoT Link never fails! Though I always found it odd OoT wasn't the first in the timeline. With SS (and a few others that I don't remember atm) being in front of it, I just find it weird. I know there were wars before in Hyrule, but that's about as much backstory you get to the events before OoT, so I felt like it was safe to believe it was first. And when you consider most others Links get Hero's Clothes and it's like "this blah was worn by the ancient hero of blah and the blah blah" but noooo you have a Kokiri Tunic in OoT, implying you have the first and original, because you didn't get it because of a certain occasion or whatever. I'm thinking too much about something trivial like a tunic lol. Now that I've watched SS and all, it makes sense that it's first, but...ughhh. /stanning for OoT

And yeah I can see the Shadow Temple being used for that thing. I'm too lazy to look up what a temple actually means, I just think of it as a sanctuary, and obviously the Shadow Temple is not a sanctuary. lol

Anyway, I've yet to even SEE any gameplay of SS. It looks cool from what I can tell.

Go watch NintendoCapriSun's LP! That's what I've been watching. :) My favorite LPer. He's done most Zelda games actually. His OoT LP is my favorite.

Anyway, I pretty much gave up trying to understand the Zelda timeline when I first heard that there were 3 separate timelines, along with all these theories and what-not. But you say there's an official canon timeline now, so I'll have to look into that.

^That right there. BT Added Miyamoto for fun. |D;

I can follow/understand most of the places some of the games were put in... but as said before, I would have liked the third timeline to be placed elsewhere.
The Hero's clothes is also something I've been thinking about. (You're not the only one to indulge themselves into the world behind the games, Sydian. ;3)
TP and WW are, as far as I know, the only games where it's actually mentioned that the Green Tunic is something special, whereas OoT and SS give an origin story. In the other games the green tunic is just kinda there. I long thought that OoT was one of the first as well, and it's the first game to establish some key features in the Hyrulean lore.
Hyrule was well develloped since then, in a lot of the earlier games (Lttp not included) it's a bit of a chaotic place.


Part of me believes that when they started to make the Legend of Zelda games, no one of the devellopers had any idea about how great the series would become. It started as just any fantasy A/RPG... and it wasn't until later when they realised how big it /could/ get that they actively starting thinking about Hyrule's history and culture...
Making the Triforce a divine gift of three goddesses kind of put the first games on the sidelines... and therefore they are somewhere in the dark corners of the timeline...
I haven't played the first games yet, so I'm just speculating based on things I heard here and there.

Sydian
June 14th, 2012, 01:00 PM
Yeah, I'm sure Miyamoto didn't want to pull a George Lucas on us haha. So looking at the timeline, although it doesn't seem to come together and make sense in some spots, we have to remember that the older games were either incapable of holding a heavy storyline, and they probably didn't think Zelda would have lasted this long. But I'm glad it did. :) Now later Zelda games have room to actually contribute to the timeline in a way that makes sense. I don't think they really started to think about it and make an attempt to bring it together till OoT, considering that's where a lot of things in proceeding Zelda games came from. Certain dungeon formulas, items, etc. were all borrowed. And TONS of characters in MM's case! Weeeeeeeee I love OoT being so fierce. I should hug it. Though I find it weird 4SA is at the end of it, but 4S is in the part before the split? Ummm? I never played either of them though, since they're both kind of difficult to play without proper equipment or more players (I AM REALLY LONELY GUYS) so I always felt like it shouldn't be included since I can't be the only one that didn't have access to it. I'm sure tons of others didn't either.

I totally understand that feeling. I felt the same when I was watching his LP and I found my selling point pretty late, and it's a major plot point, so I won't say what it is haha. But I hate that it took me that long to get interested in the game and actually want to buy it for myself. There are just some really tedious things in there. And the thing about me is that when I watch someone play a game, I feel like I have to do it exactly like them. lol

I HATED the DS games. When I first started playing PH, I kept mashing on the control pad until I realized the stylus alone made Link move. It really annoyed me. I'm just an old enough gamer that not using a control pad or stick really bothered me.

I ended up selling that game... cannot ever see myself parting with any other of my Zelda games. I still have the special golden DS though :P

I haven't played an of the DS games either, though as a Zelda fan, I should at one point at least try them, no? BT Which one would you advice to me first? Phantom Hourglass or Spirit Tracks?

I think the half of the beauty of Skyward Sword is actually being able to do it yourself. You say your selling point was a turning point (I think I might have an idea about which one it is) pretty late in the game, but I Loved the first half of the game. Adventuring all by yourself, discovering things... it's all part of the experience. I remember being "astonished" when the 'sapphire' didn't turn out to be a 'sapphire'. |D
Oh, and whoever says that the Silent Realms are their least favourite part of the game, I disagree. \o/

Sydian
June 15th, 2012, 07:58 AM
Yeah I feel like I should at least try them at some point. :( But I'm afraid I won't beat them and I don't like buying games that I won't play often or at least beat once.

I'm a Heart Piece completionist lol. I'm afraid I won't have as many of them as I should when going to a new dungeon or area and die or something. :( Cause I used to just go from point a to b without collecting them and ugh. -points to first file on OoT- Six hearts in Forest Temple BAD. Bad bad.

Are the Silent Realms the trial things? They're super cool, but it would freak me out. I hate when I am gonna get chased. I blame the hand and the Sol in the Palace of Twilight. v_v THAT MUSIC. SCARY.

What is your favorite character, and why?

Linebeck (or was it Lineback) was pretty awesome in Phantom Hourglass, IMO~ I also love Nabooru from OoT; she was my favourite. :3

What is your favorite instrument used in the games?

The Ocarina, tbh~ It's probably the most fun and challenging instrument to play~ <3

Who is your favorite partner? (Midna, Navi, etc.)

Ohhh, Midna for sure. Navi, was well, Navi, Tatl was just, ugh, she was a brat. Fi, well, she was okay, but she just... keeps telling you all these things that you knew by then. xD The King of Red Lions was also cool, but, not as cool as Midna tbh.

Why are the easiest questions always the hardest to answer?

It's a tie between Twilight Princess Link and Skyward Sword Link, with the former probably a bit higher than the later.
I adore Twi's artwork. It's so detailed. I love how they added simple things like stitchwork or the patterns in his boots. Even the knot in his belt is a nice touch. I love how goofy he looks as goat herder and how fierce his face is as a hero. I love his blue eyes in this picture. It's as Telma says: That boy has the eyes of a fierce beast. I couldn't agree more.

http://zs.ffshrine.org/album/twilight-princess/art/e3_link_art_3.jpg

I guess Sky doesn't need any additional explanation as to why he ranks so high. He's so expressive. :'D

For the Zelda's, it's probably vice versa. Skyward Sword Zelda is my favourite, for the same reason as to why Sky ranks so high on my list. She's just a great character, with an adorable design and great story to boot.
TP's Zelda is just very regal. A true heir to the throne. Did you gues know that apparently, if Zant hadn't invaded, she would have been crowned queen a few days later?

Adult Link in OoT has to be my favorite. He looks so grown up from the little kid he was and it was such a shock to me when I saw him as an adult for the first time. My least favorite is the Link from A Link to the Past. His hair and face annoyed me the entire game. Idk why, but I hated the design. As for Zelda, my favorite is the Wind Waker. I was really amazed when Tetra was revealed as Zelda. Even though the design is cartoon-like, I still like it more than the other LoZ games I've played. I don't really have a least favorite Zelda.

But yeah, I'm like you, Kotowari, in that 3D games are...uh, easier? to play than the 2D ones. Going back to my original post, I remember paying Zelda 1 on GB, and I just...died so many times. And that was before I got the sword, even.

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. :( So much stuff going on irl. To answer my last two topics, my favorite Link is Skyward Sword Link because...WELL I just like how he acts in the game haha. Least favorite Link I guess would be Link to the Past Link because his sprite has purple hair and it bugs me. Favorite Zelda is Skyward Sword's again, because she's so different than other Zeldas and gets more personality, but Wind Waker's is a close second. Least favorite Zelda...the one in Zelda II with her sleepy self. Wake yo ass up!

Which bosses in the Legend of Zelda series did you find the hardest? Which the easiest?

Ignoring all final boss battles, just cause that's kinda...standard to be the hardest. Anyway, Argorok in Twilight Princess. I died. Yes. I died. lol :( Twice I think? But trying Clawshot around the arena while avoiding flamethrowers was difficult, but it's been years since I've done that fight. As for easiest, I can beat Volvagia without taking damage from it at all. It's simple. You can duck when he circles around you and not take any hits. lol

Bosses in Zelda games were always easy for me. Granted I never played 2D Zelda games, N64 Zelda games, Twilight Princess and Wind Waker (oh dear god that's a lot of catching up lol), but so far I don't think there was any boss that gave me any trouble, but they were a lot of fun.

Easiest I guess goes to the first boss in Phantom Hourglass. Dunno about hardest.

The hardest would have to be the next to last boss fight against Ganon in WW where he transforms into three different forms. The puppet pig thing wasn't too hard and the spider was easy, but the snake was nearly impossible. It moved too fast and I couldn't hit the end of the tail because I never knew which way it would turn. The first time I spent hours firing arrows randomly hoping I would hit it. The other times weren't as hard but it is definitely one of the hardest bosses for me.


The easiest boss for me is the final boss in PH. Though I felt a little guilty about hurting Lineback I easily defeated him. It was the easiest final boss ever. It could have been much more difficult and given me more of a challenge.

Idk I haven't played too many Zelda games and most of the time I die because I have no idea what I'm doing, lol. Uhhh, I didn't really find any of the OOT bosses hard, imo they mostly focused on how to defeat the boss, and once you got that then it was easy.

There was the one miniboss, Darkhammer, from TP with the ball & chain that was really hard for me, or just frustrating, it took me many tries before I could finally kill him ;_; I'm really bad at the dungeon part so that's mostly what's difficult for me.

I think Morpheel from TP was really frustrating, the battle was underwater and I hate being underwater, thanks Water Temple ;;

I finally finished TP and I started Skyward Sword (no outside life wooo). Is it just me or is it hard? I find the controls difficult, I can't defeat the Deku Babas and the Skulltulas because my remote won't swing sideways, or it just takes me a while and I die. ;; THE SHIELDS. Most of the time I just stick my shield in front and absorb attacks but... now I can't and I keep forgetting, I didn't have a shield for the first boss fight in Skyview Temple. :c

There was the one miniboss, Darkhammer, from TP with the ball & chain that was really hard for me, or just frustrating, it took me many tries before I could finally kill him ;_; I'm really bad at the dungeon part so that's mostly what's difficult for me.

I think Morpheel from TP was really frustrating, the battle was underwater and I hate being underwater, thanks Water Temple ;;

I finally finished TP and I started Skyward Sword (no outside life wooo). Is it just me or is it hard? I find the controls difficult, I can't defeat the Deku Babas and the Skulltulas because my remote won't swing sideways, or it just takes me a while and I die. ;; THE SHIELDS. Most of the time I just stick my shield in front and absorb attacks but... now I can't and I keep forgetting, I didn't have a shield for the first boss fight in Skyview Temple. :c

do you have the wii motion plus?
You can't play the game without it.

I thought the controls felt natural imo, especially if you don't sit down. Would really love if they do it again in future Zelda games, the sword fights are very fun.

Also, I got the original LoZ game, Zelda II and LoZ: Minish Cap for free on my 3DS yesterday when I found out what an ambassador 3DS is, lol. Really excited to try out Minish Cap in particular.

I think it's about time that I finally join this club.

Username: Olli97
Favorite LoZ game: Uhh, hard choice. It's kind of a tie between the N64 titles. I love Ocarina of Time, the length, the story, the dungeons and temples and pretty much everything about it, yet Majora's Mask rivals it with its dark and eerie atmosphere, and just all the possibilities it brought with its story, plus I found all the side quests a lot of fun. I guess in the end I'd have to go with Majora's Mask, mainly because I've had so much fun with it, and it hasn't once bored me, unlike OoT where I found some of the temple's a bit boring. They both shared an incredibly annoying Water temple though.
Triforce Section: Courage, because I wanna grow up to be just like Link ^v^

Which bosses in the Legend of Zelda series did you find the hardest? Which the easiest?

Kinda hard to say. While replaying the games, I find that most of the bosses I once thought were hard are actually pretty easy, though if I had to choose one, I'd have to say Phantom Ganon in Ocarina of Time. I've always been pretty horrible at timing attacks correctly, and my observation skills aren't that good either in cases like this. I usually panic too much, and end up failing in shooting him with the bow and sending back his attacks.

The easiest one I've faced is probably a tie between the Chu-Chu boss from Minish Cap and the first boss in Ocarina of Time. They were both very predictable and simple, so they were pretty easy to beat, and when you're able to finish a boss off in the first chance you get to damage it, it's just kinda done wrong lol.

Guys don't let the thread die! D8

Hi Olli97, welcome to our club! I love OOT too. C: I've never played Majora's Mask, it looks really awesome though. Courage Triforce yay :)

Maybe it's time to start a new discussion: we all know that all LoZ tracks are just... awesome, but what are your favorite LoZ songs? Background music, Ocarina songs, etc.

I just got to the Lanayru Mining Facility in Skyward Sword, and when I heard the music I kind of just.. sat there for a few minutes.

Good music! I love Lanayru Mining Facility even though I still haven't played SS. But I was watching a spoilery battle today and OH HEY look at this.

http://www.halolz.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/halolz-dot-com-zelda-iloveyou.jpg

I was gushing over SS Link and Zelda. They're so cute! And I remembered seeing this a while back and thought I'd share it with y'all. :) So true, isn't it? Missing some but eh, can't please them all. Though the thought of Link even speaking to say I love you is the weirdest thought to me. Like what would he sound like in older games? Now I'll think about this all day.

Altairis
July 13th, 2012, 08:15 PM
Ohh I saw that before too! I think that's pretty funny. I got up to the last dungeon in SS wooo (lol nothing better to do) and I really love SS Link and Zelda <33 IMO I think they're the best because there's more of a connection between them that you can actually see... I guess lol. It's not like, "Oh, the Princess is in trouble, save her, she has something to do with Light Arrows etc" At least from what I've seen... I actually felt like I should save her this time around, lol.

Sydian
July 14th, 2012, 04:44 PM
Yes, this is my favorite incarnation of Zelda. She's absolutely amazing. Link isn't just rescuing because he has to. He's doing it because he wants to. That's his best friend, and I'm sure he already liked her at least, you know? And she has more personality than most other Zeldas. She's not just someone you see for 3 seconds at the end of the game when you rescue her. I like Wind Waker Link too though. She had some personality and Tetra is a great character too, though they're the same essentially. idk if anyone considers them two separate characters or what of course.

Olli
July 14th, 2012, 05:10 PM
I felt like Skyward Sword was the only one to really live up to it's name. I mean, almost every game has had something to do with Zelda, however it isn't showing her story, she isn't on an adventure, and usually her actions don't mean that much other than using her magic to help you through a collapsing building, or shooting light arrows at your shield. In Skyward Sword though she did do something, had her own adventure apart from Link's, and was generally more close to the story that usual, as well as having a much more elaborated relationship with Link in the game.

Sydian
July 14th, 2012, 06:44 PM
YES I agree. That's probably why people used to think Link was Zelda, because he's having the adventure and making the legend, not Zelda. She's like...asleep or something in most of them. What kind of legend is that? She didn't do crap. So it's nice to know she actually did something. But after 25 years of it, The Legend of Link just doesn't sound as good as The Legend of Zelda. As much as that name would be more appropriate, it just doesn't sound right. At least some games got it right, like The Adventure of Link.

Spinosaurus
July 15th, 2012, 08:41 AM
It's such a shame that Skyward Sword suffers immensely from continues paddng and backtracking after beating Lanayru Mining Facility. It seriously discouraged me to continue to play the game, and I already got bored of motion controls. I also heard that the next temples has worse level designs than the previous ones, and the padding and backtracking gets MORE ridiculous.

I'm still midway through the game. (at least I hope so) Of course I'm willing to beat the game, but I haven't gotten the will to play. (considering all the other games I'm playing) It quickly went to possible favorite Zelda game to possible least favorite. :( I'll reserve judgment until I beat it however, whenever that is.

Kotowari
July 17th, 2012, 02:00 AM
Guess who's popping back in? That's right, me. :'D /shot'd I was playing Majora's Mask (finally) and finished it the day before yesterday. It's a great game, but I don't think it'll ever be able to push Twilight Princess from it's first place in my list. |3

I wouldn't just throw Skyward Sword aside just for the back tracking. It's true that after the Lanayru mining facility some back tracking is required (even redoing Skyview for a bit), but ithe tamples aren't bad. The Ancient Cistern has a great design (imo), and if you do a bit of background research, you'll learn that this temple is built around an old Japanese/Buddhistic tale, which makes it more interesting if you ask me.
The Fire Temple is pretty fun as well, the Sandship is something else than the usual building type of temple. Skykeep is pretty fun, once you figure out how the puzzles work. |D;

Some people groan at the part where you need to collect the parts of the Song of the Hero. I actually liked that (specially the Tadtone trial.)

So yeah, I wouldn't throw it aside just yet. Skyward Sword has some surprises left for you.

As for my favourite songs:

Sorry I've been gone so long! I have much to catch up on. So anyways, welcome... ~Harmony,NV, olli97,Iloveeevee, Algo Fonix, 8bitsilence, Miss Doronjo, Madam Cheezy, コナンくん, and Spinosaurus. Whew! I will update the members list soon.

Anyways, I'd have to say my favorite incarnation of Link is either TP Link or WW Link. LOL, I just got a shirt with TP Link on it, so it's probably him. I've worn that shirt three days in a row. XD

My favorite Zelda is definetley SS Zelda, for the reasons alot of you guys said. She takes a big part in the story, going on her own adventure and helping in her own way. Also, I like her design alot more than others.

The hardest LoZ boss for me was probably Ghirahim in the first battle. I had just got SS, so he wasn't very easy to beat. However, in the Thunder Dragon's challenge thing, I beat him in under a minute. Not so difficult now.

The easiest... Probably Koloktos. I don't know why, but this battle was very simple to me. The only difficult part of it is remembering what button to press to pull out my whip. :)

Wow, Kotowari, That art is absolutely stunning! I can draw, but I wish I could color and shade as well as you! Great job!

Welcome back Jacinth, have fun updating the list :p

That's some really nice art you have there Kotowari, you've really got a talent there :o I'm really in love with the Battle of Fates one. It's got so much detail and great colouring, and though I don't know who Kanda is, it looks to be a pretty intense battle. I'd love to see some more fanart from you :>

And great Sydian! I hope you'll get it, and I hope you won't be disappointed. I personally really liked the game, and was glued to it for such a long time. Though Spino's right that there was quite a lot of backtracking, especially when you had to go through a dungeon for a second time, just obtain a bottle of special water, which was super annoying because I just wanted to progress. I also felt like there was less adventuring in it compared to other Zelda games, since you're restricted to 4 different types of areas only, and your only connection between them are the sky. I enjoyed flying around up there, but having to go back and forth between the 3 mainland areas just became really annoying later on.

Though despite that, it was a really fun game overall, especially the boss battles. So yeah, something to look forward to.

Haha, that sounds familiar. |D I know I missed a few opportunities to pull off an arm because I kept pressing the wrong button.
I loved the temple though. It wasn't dark and gloomy like some of the others.

Thank you very much. ^^

Thank you very much, Olli97. As you might have read in the artist's comments, I'm very proud of this one. I think it's a step up from my usual work. Kanda is my favourite Anime/manga character, but since this isn't a D.Gray-man fanclub, I'm afraid I can't go into detail as to why. ;3 I'm sure that is also not something you're dying to know. Oh, if you'd like that, that can be taken care of. I have another piece which is almost finished (I'm finishing up a bunch which was left untouched during my exams). I could show you that one, if you want.

Compared to Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask and Twilight Princess, The surface seemed lot less expanded (vast) than the Hyrule (specially TP's) and Termina. But because there was so much detail to the environment, I didn't mind walking around. Some places in Hyrule and Termina of the earlier games just looked bland and uninteresting... but that meant that you could ride your horse (specially in TP) for long distances. SS doesn't need that anymore, since everything's pretty close together... but there are quite a lot of details in this "cramped" (exaggerated) space, which makes the short-distance exploring much more fun. But "venturing" into unknown areas is pretty much non-existant once you visited all the secondary areas.

Ooooh, I saw those Ocarina of Time mangas at Books A Million today! Along with Four Swords and Majora's Mask. Of course I was only interested in OoT really haha. I'm considering going back and buying them when I get paid this week and getting that awesome Tails plushie even though I'm awful at Sonic. But are they really worth it? I mean, I have ummmm like 5/6 year old manga in my room that I haven't touched in years, plus I don't read books or manga like I used to so idk if I should get them. I'm really interested though since Link actually talks in them and Ocarina of Time is like...the apple of my eye. My Zelda eye. mmm. lol

So yeah thoughts?

Kotowari
July 29th, 2012, 01:49 AM
I'd say go for it. I'm one of those fans who likes the manga quite a lot. : > Even if Viz classified them as "Child" Manga, I still find them an enjoyable read. I don't have any complaint about the manga, except that sometimes it goes a little fast. But that's to be expected if you throw a 60h game into a 2 volume (for OoT, 1 vol for the rest) manga. I quite enjoy the artstyle of Akira Himekawa.
They follow the games pretty closely, but give their own little twist to the major events in the game (e.g. Volvagia's curse and the fact that Dark Link is faught in Kakariko, not in the Water Temple) and give explanations for some of the details that weren't mentioned in the game (like Adult Link's earrings).
I own the OoT volumes, as well as MC and OoA (Raven <3) and they're all pretty good. I kind of want to get my hands on MM, FS and ALttP, which I remember being very good.

To be honest, my liking for Ocarina Link is mainly based on his characterisation in the manga. He doesn't have as much personality in the game as some of the other Links, but the manga makes up quite a bit for that.
I was hoping they'd do a TP manga (as were the mangaka), but for some reason they couldn't make one. : < They did, however, make a short SS-prequel manga which got published in Hyrule Historia. That was pretty nice. :'D and now my drama lovestory between the First Hero and the Goddess Hylia is complete

Well, being the big OoT nut I am, I think I'll go for it once I get paid. :) It was busy today so that means more money anyway. n_n Yay. But yeah the thing that interested me the most was that Link actually talked. I was like "OMG YAY YOU'RE NOT MUTE! <3" OMG I'd love to know where the earrings came from too. DON'T TELL ME. lol I've always thought they looked awesome, even though I don't particularly like it when guys irl have earrings. That makes no sense. Maybe it's just because of how Link is dressed and it kinda goes.

And awwww I should get you the MM and FS manga cause it's at the Books A Million I went to! what if ben is in the mm manga ;) jk

The only manga I've ever read through is DB/Z, since I've never really been that much into manga, so I'm probably not gonna get it. I tend to stay on the game side of the Zelda franchise too, since the Zelda cartoon really didn't appeal to me at all lol. Honestly, the only manga I ever knew about related to Zelda was the Minish Cap manga, though I guess there's much more to it than I thought.

Sorry for my absense. I was on holiday and I've been playing Okami way too much since I'm back. |D I got the four swords pt1 manga from a friend, so that's on more manga I can scratch off my list. What amused me the most from that manga, are the expressions of the five Links (Green, Red, Vio, Blue and Shadow). They're quite hilarious from time to time. It's also the only (Akira Himekawa) manga where Link's dark counterpart gets a major role in the plot.

@Olli97: From what I get the Zelda cartoon wasn't very faithful to its source material, whereas the manga (at least by some authors) is a very good game adaptation. As mentioned earlier though, the pace is sometimes a bit too fast... But that's what you get when the majority of the actual dungeon and overworld exploring/backtracking/etc (which slows down the games) is not included because it's hard to turn into a story that stays entertaining.

I agree with Gohma being the easiest Zelda boss. The first time playing OoT she's a bit of a challenge as you still need to get used to controls. Yes, I GO'd in the Deku Tree on my first and second play-through. But every other time, she's very, very, very easy. Other first bosses tend to give me a (small) challenge during every playthrough (like Dia Baba and the WW's first boss). But Gohma only takes 5 minutes or something.

Pokemon Trainer UV
August 28th, 2012, 02:51 PM
@Kotowari
Gohma is definitely one of the easiest bosses of all. I don't think she even takes 5 minutes. I'd give her 3 minutes at the most.

@Olli97 I say that you should stick to the games, I've read most of the Zelda mangas, and personally, I think that they cut out the best parts of the games. A good example of that would be the Majora's Mask manga. They cut off the Stone Tower Temple, the Ikana Castle, and Captain Keeta, and those were definitely the best and most mysterious parts of the game!
As for the cartoon, uh.. yeah, I'd stay away to that too.

@Everyone
Sssoo.. CD-I Zelda, anyone? :P

There was nothing to prepare. BT

Guys this can't die ;; idk a new topic didn't seem to help last time but..
For the next Zelda installment, do you think it will be a remake (of which game for what platform?) or a completely new game (for which platform? What do you think they will include?)

I think that they miight make a remake for the 3DS, then a new game for the Wii U. I'm really not sure. It would be cool to see a came that was previously 2D come to life in a 3DS game such as A Link to the Past or any of the other Zelda games. I have no idea what they would include for a new game, haha!

Username: Psystar63, or Star...
Favorite LoZ game: Majora's mask, then Twilight Princess. What I liked about the most in those two games was the form changing. But I like Majora's Mask more because...well... as many have pointed out, it's pretty much the black sheep of the Zelda franchise. Plus I also like hearing all the weird theories about it (makes it even more creepier to think that that CREEPY Happy Mask Salesman guy is haunting me...o_O)
And Fierce Deity/OniLink rocks my world! :P :D
Triforce Section: Wisdom. It seems to fit me better than Power or Courage.

I think there'll be another remake on the 3DS. Personally, if they do a remake, I really hope they do Majora's Mask. Sure, it's my favourite game, but I really want to see how they would remake it. And I also want to see FD Link in 3D!!
But to have the Happy Mask Salesman in 3D as well??? ....OoO. *shudder*

Welcome to the club, Psystar63!

I think there are rumors that Nintendo's planning a remake of either aLttP or Majora's mask, and apparently they let the fans choose. I'm not sure about every detail, but that's what I heard. I also heard they are working an completely new Zelda, which would take less development time than Skyward Sword.
So, the order is most likely "3D remake", "completely new game".


I have a question a well:

I think there are rumors that Nintendo's planning a remake of either aLttP or Majora's mask, and apparently they let the fans choose. I'm not sure about every detail, but that's what I heard. I also heard they are working an completely new Zelda, which would take less development time than Skyward Sword.
So, the order is most likely "3D remake", "completely new game".


I have a question a well:
What's your favourite area in the Legend of Zelda games?
Reason? music, lay-out, characters, quests?
+post a picture of the area for effect.
you can post your favourite areas of more than one game. : >

Thanks Kotowari! I've heard a similar rumour like that. Have you seen the (supposed) E3 trailer for Majora's Mask on the Wii U. Personally, I'd prefer they remake Majora's Mask on the 3DS. If they do let the fans choose, then they should also let the fans choose what system the remake should be on. They usually come out with a new Zelda game every 3 or 4 years, so yeah, "remake first" and then "new game".

As for your topic. My favourite area would have to be Lake Hylia. The music there is just so lovely (especially in TP). And the view is just beautiful, especially from above:

Plus, have you seen what Lake Hylia looks like underneath? :D

http://www.jaytheham.com/w/images/1/1b/OcarinaOfTimeUndergroundLink2.jpg

My other favourite would have to be Hyrule field. When you first see it in Ocarina of Time, you're just overwhelmed by how vast it is. Nothing beats spending hours wandering around the field, just exploring everywhere you can. Plus the music there is great. It really puts you in the mood to explore!

Of course it can get tiring exploring all of Hyrule Field without Epona...

Triforce Section: Wisdom
What is your favorite character, and why? Link, because his the one running around saving the world from Ganon, Giant Laughing Moons and monsters!
What is your favorite instrument used in the games? Ocarina of Time or Fairy Ocarina. They were in my first Legend of Zelda game I played which was 'Ocarina of Time'. I loved solving puzzles by just taking out your Ocarina and playing the correct song, when I get it right, I feel soooo smart xD (This was when I was 9-11 years old).
Who is your favorite partner? (Midna, Navi, etc.) Navi, most awesome 'LISTEN! LOOKOUT!'
Who is your favorite incarnation of Link? Zelda?
Who was the hardest and easiest boss for you?Um.. Last Boss in Skyward Sword is probably the hardest for me (I didn't even beat him yet :( )

Strategy to beat Demise
Spam the Skyward Strike when he raises his sword

I'm playing the hero mode in Skyward Sword now... and for some reason I can't beat most bosses in one try. I have to try really hard and I GO quite soon. But on the second try, I beat them with ease, loosing barely any health at all. :V While doing the exact same thing as before.

If you mean this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyazYYev7Nw), I'm afraid I'm going to have to disappoint you. I have indeed seen the video before, when the poll was made to decide MM or aLttP. As far as I remember, this was a fanmade trailer. It would have been odd they could show this in the poll when there would already be a trailer, no?

Oh, lol, you and your glitch pictures. |D
But I agree, Lake Hylia and Hyrule field are amazing places. I loved riding Epona through Hyrule field in TP. The music that goes with it is just brillant.

My favourite places, however, differ a little.
For Twilight Princess it's Snowpeak Mountain
http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090803181936/zelda/images/c/c5/Snowpeak_Top.png

Besides being a fan of anything mountainous (I love them |3), I think the atmosphere of Snowpeak has something magical. I love the music. It's seemingly so simple, yet it perfectly manages to capture the eery, desolate, cold feeling that radiates from the snow-covered slopes of Hyrule's northern mountain chain. And besides that, it still has an undertone of beauty.
Snowpeak Mountain also houses my favourite (TP) monsters: the White Wolfos. They're graceful and deadly. Playful and mysterious. I don't see them as real monsters, but mostly a pack trying to protect their habitat. I would have loved to see a minigame involving them. There aren't many minigames you can do as a Wolf, and a racing game against the Wolfos would have been perfect. During one of my play-throughs, I had some fun with two Wolfos who tend to get stuck against the wall (small glitch?) over and over again. They started to live a life of their own in my head.

Also, it holds my favourite Temple in TP. ;3


My second favourite area is the Lanayru province-to-be (let's call it that) in Skyward Sword. I don't like the Lanayru Mining Facility very much (the music drives me crazy XD; ) but I love the environment. I love the concept of the passing of time, the integration of past, present and future.

I love running around the desert trying to find new treasures. And I like the music as well. I think it catches teh mood of passing of time perfectly.

Favorite LoZ game: Ocarina of Time. Easily. Twilight Princess is probably next, then Majora's Mask and Wind Waker. Not too fond of Skyward Bored.
Triforce Section: Wisdom
What is your favorite character, and why? Favorite characters are so hard to decide. I'd probably go with Midna overall. Or Tetra in Wind Waker.
What is your favorite instrument used in the games? The Ocarina of Time. It's nostalgic for me and what I grew up with. I wanted my own. A cousin of mine (RIP :'() showed me his actual ocarina and it was pretty neat.
Who is your favorite partner? (Midna, Navi, etc.) Midna. She's hilarious and not at all annoying. She also has actual development and is pretty hardcore, too.
Who is your favorite incarnation of Link? Zelda? To me, Link is always pretty much the same, but I like his design best in Twilight Princess. Zelda in TP easily has the best design, but Tetra in Wind Waker was just too awesome. Seriously, what a badass. What little I saw of Zelda in the first half of Skyward Bored was great. A lot of personality in that one. Too bad I found the game itself a chore.
Who was the hardest and easiest boss for you? I haven't struggled with a Zelda boss in a long, long time. I always bring a fairy with me and one is enough. Gyorg in WW does cause a lot of damage if you let him get you, and some fights in TP can be easy to struggle with.

For my favorite bosses, it's a pretty common answer, but Goht and Stallord. So much fun. Both of 'em.

Demise was pretty easy the first time I fought him, though I did have to use up a few potions. I completely forgot I had a shield and didn't shield bash his attacks back... :P
I haven't played through all of Hero mode yet. I accidently deleted my Hero mode save file, and so I had to start all over again.

Yeah, I know the trailer was fanmade, though you have to admit that for a moment you wish it weren't (but that could just be me really wanting a MM remake). I did find it odd that the fanmade trailer advertised the remake for Wii-U. Plus the graphics didn't really feel like Nintendo, you know what I mean?

Man I love those glitches :D
I do like Snowpeak in TP. I'm a fan of cold snowy places, and Snowpeak was just so beautiful. The view is just incredible when you stop and have a good look around, especially at the peak. The music was so soft and quiet, and it went well with the atmosphere.
Lanayru province was cool. I liked how much it changes from past to present, from being a lovely green area to a vast desert. I liked the Sand sea as well for the same reasons, plus that whole level had a real Wind Waker vibe to it.

If I may add to my answer- Another area that I love is The sky in SS. It's pretty much Hyrule Field in the sky, but I absolutely love it. The view is just spectacular, and the music works so well. It really captures the mood of flying through the vastness of the sky. Riding my Loftwing through the clouds is so much fun, travelling from island to island. And then jumping off and sky-diving... it's all just so amazing.
And trolling Groose in the Wing Ceremony is fun too! XD

Triforce Section: Wisdom, sir

What is your favorite character, and why?
Groose. Not only is he aloof, but he plays it quite hilariously. His hair style seals the deal. I mean, how much gel must that take?

What is your favorite instrument used in the games?
While the harp is quite an interesting mechanism, my vote goes for the Zoran Guitar. I occasionally pull it out just to jam out on it.

Who is your favorite partner?
NO... Midna cuts it close, but still, they have yet to make a non-annoying partner.

Who is your favorite incarnation of Link? Zelda?
Link? 8-bit style. Back when you had no clue what to do without a guide. Zelda? Skyward sword. Me gusta...

Who was the hardest and easiest boss for you?
Horsehead. Hands down the hardest boss I've fought. (Haven't got much farther than death mountain on that game...) The easiest, and the most fun, however, was Volvagia. Were it possible, I'd fight him thrice over and then some.

Favorite area? Hm... Most likely the Hidden Village in Twilight Princess.
http://zeldawiki.org/images/c/c5/Hidden_Village.jpg
Why? First off, the music is awesome. Makes it really feel like one of those old gunslinger movies. On top of that, you get to have fun finding every possible way to kill a Bokoblin. Personally, I would don the Zora Armor, burn my wooden shield, equip the Ordon Sword and run in attacking. Called myself the great Zora, an imitation of Zoro, for those that know who that is. The Cat minigame unlocked afterward is also fun, if not challenging.

Other than that, my only favorite places are the Pirate Hideout in Majora's Mask, and the Gerudu Fortress in Ocarina Of Time.
http://zeldawiki.org/images/0/09/Piratefortressinside.png
http://zeldawiki.org/images/a/a5/GerudoFortressMap.jpg
I love the stealth element introduced, although Gerudu Fort was much more difficult, as the guards didn't stay out. The Pirate hideout, however, was much more puzzle oriented. If they allowed you to, I would love to refight the Gerudu Fortres again and again. The music is fitting, but it could have been better, especially for the Pirate Hideout. It sounded a bit too much like a dungeon than anything.

(Pictures on the way)

Hmmm mostly the music is what makes me love the places xD They're all great though.

I really like the Hyrule Field in Twilight Princess, not just because of the music, I just love how it's so big and expansive and it so easily connects all the places, they just did an excellent job with it.
http://zeldawiki.org/images/thumb/c/c5/South_Hyrule_Field.jpg/350px-South_Hyrule_Field.jpg

I also love the
Temple of Time in Twilight Princess. The entrance looks almost just like the Ocarina of Time entrance and the music is the same just ugh <3 I love how they did that, which the door leading to the past or something. The dungeon itself was cool too, TP dungeons were relatively on the easy side imo but I love how they included the use of the Dominion Rod, it wasn't really like anything we've done before.

I also love almost every part of TP it and SS were the best Zelda gamess imo <3

In OOT, I like the Kokiri Forest, mostly because of the music. In Wind Waker I love the sea itself, and Outset Island, and in Skyward Sword I love the Sky and idk everything Skyward Sword was amazing <3

I'll give a listen to it later, but as to your question. This my explanation for the Ganondorf-Ganon question, which I picked up by reading several things.

Ganondorf is, as far as I'm concerned, the human being that we know as the King of the Gerudo.
Ganon, to me, is the twisted version who could not handle the power he was given by the Triforce of Power... and got changed into this giant boar. All the further reincarnations mention Ganon in the context of the beast (see Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess) and Ganondorf as the person (Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess Wind Waker).

And about Majora's Mask's lack of references. My guess is as good as yours, but I'm inclined to link Majora's Magic to that of the Twilight Magic (compare to Midna's mask) (and because I can, Dark Link as well //Headcanon ahoy). This can explain why Hyrule itself has no references to Majora as it's magic was sent to the other world. And Termina is a mirror world of Hyrule... not Hyrule itself.

Best is if you play the reverse song of time to slow down time. This gives you plenty of time to finish each dungeon (and do the side quests as well.) You can use http://www.zeldadungeon.net/Zelda06-majoras-mask-walkthrough.php as a walkthrough for the game, so that you don't miss anything. :3

December 31st, 2012, 11:41 AM
Thank you Kotowari! I'll try the inverted song, though I want to try without a walkthrough first. ;3

I also believed that the Majora's Magic and the Twili's Magic were just opposites of each other. The Twili left behind the Twilight Mirror, and the Majoras left behind the mask. Though of course I haven't actually beaten the game so I don't know anything other than the basics about the mask.

Speaking of Majora's Mask, I heard that the Stone Tower Temple music is a palindrome, it's mostly the same song when played backwards. Anyone tried this yet?

Also I finally got Twilight Princess working again! ...Yay... After playing Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask for so long, it seems Twilight Princess Link runs too fast and careless. It's hard to get used to.

January 1st, 2013, 01:42 PM
No, I haven't. But it would work quite will with the flipped tower. :'D

If he's too fast and careless compared to Time, it fits his character quite well. I see him as more rash and untamed than Time was. He's more a cowboy than a forest boy. xD

I meant controls too. It's easier to judge distance and Link seems to grab ledges easier in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. In Twilight Princess, he seems to jump off edges more often when I don't want him to, and he never seems to grab ledges when he jumps. I guess it's due to being used to Nintendo 64 Zelda physics for so long.

Kotowari
January 6th, 2013, 12:22 AM
Twilight jumps of cliffs more often, yes. But I find it more "real" that you have to carefully approach the edge to "hang" from it, it's also the same with Sky's game. If you make wild movements, it's harder to catch the edge than just jump.

Onlything that bothers me is in ocarina of time (The orignal version) is the fact that you had to go into the menu and equip/unequip the iron boots. Never had any other problems in the entire series. Except for a part in wind waker and that was because I felt something wasn't explained properly.

I actually got lost in the first dungeon when you lose your sword. So you have to go Splinter Cell across the dungeon. I had so much trouble on that part that I had to call my friend to help me :C

Now that we're talking about "The Wind Waker", I'd like to say that Nintendo is going to release a full HD remake of said game on the WiiU this fall (as announced on Nintendo Direct of Jan 23rd).

Though they are working on a new Zelda game, they'd like to take this chance to bring out a Zelda-game in the time gap between Skyward Sword and Zelda WiiU.

What will you do with this game? Are you going to get it? Or leave it alone?

If I had a Wii-U I would of definitely get it. Windwaker is my all time favorite LoZ game and it would be really cool to see it remastered in HD and being able to play it on my big LCD TV.

Btw... Since Windwaker is getting a remake. Can anyone imagine how these guys will sound and look like in HD...?

Yeah I can't wait for WW. Only Zelda I haven't played, and since its near impossible to find used gamecube games here, I'm really up for it.

Fan-made from what I read on Zeldainformer. Pretty awesome, though, especially the 3DS. The Wii U one, not so much though.

Man, that MM stuff looks awesome. Nintendo, please. We need a remake.

The WW HD remake for the Wii-U looks pretty amazing, but honestly, I'd also love a remake for MM.

Hey everyone I recently recieved my limited edition copy of Hyrule Historia, still unopened. Should I keep it that way and also buy a regular copy? Or buy some book case? I really want to look at it.. >.<

I think you should just look at it to be honest, countryemo. Unless you're really rich and you'd like to preserve it as an unopened copy, in which case you can buy another one. If it were me though, I'd have read that already! I don't get those kinds of merchandise often, the last I've gotten was the Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Ultimania, and despite how difficult it was procuring that, the merch probably pales in comparison to the content of the Hyrule Historia. Haha.

In other news, I'm really excited to see Wind Waker in the Wii U! Probably never gonna get the console unless they release a spectacular Smash Bros. sequel there, but yeah. I've never actually played Wind Waker, so that's one incentive to get the game if ever, I suppose. I wonder if they'll implement motion controls like Skyward Sword did.

Favorite LoZ Game: Ocarina of Time or Wind Waker. :3
Triforce Section: Wisdom (I'm not really powerful, wouldn't say I'm reallly brave, but I am smart, so. :P)

What is your favorite character, and why?
I guess it would be Skull Kid. I love his design with the Majora's Mask, and he just has an amazing story in general... well, even though I haven't played Majora's Mask, I still know a lot about it. XD
What is your favorite instrument used in the games?
Instrument? I guess the good-old Ocarina. :P My second favorite would be the composer Link uses in WW, though.
Who is your favorite partner? (Midna, Navi, etc.)
Not too sure...I don't hate Navi, but I don't like her, either. I don't know enough about the other partners either, however, if it counts, then I guess the Red Lion King (I forget his name, that MIGHT be it.)
Who is your favorite incarnation of Link? Zelda?
My favorite incarnations...hmm. For Link, it's gotta be SS. His design was really good, IMO, and he had more emotion in that installment. For Zelda? Most likely Twilight Princess, she looked pretty awesome in that one.
Who was the hardest and easiest boss for you?
Can't really say, it's been a while since I've played any of the actual games. But I guess the easiest boss for me was the Helmaroc King in WW. All you gotta do is whack him with a hammer. :P

I hope they add some cut content to the game. Because right now I'm not sold on the new look

Didn't realize they were making a remake to Wind Waker until I saw this thread. While I didn't enjoy it as much as others it's definitely a game worth playing and the remake could really help convince me to buy a Wii U one day.

It sure as hell did for me. I bought a Wii U literally days after, even if I was already sold by the prospect of Zelda in HD. But Windwaker this october, in glorious HD? Sold! Also I found a very hungry link...

Favorite Game:Majora's Mask. I liked all the sidequests that game offered,the dark story,and all the masks!

Triforce Section:Power.

I wish I had money for the Wii U.I'm just playing the waiting game till the price drops,or I get the money for it. I never finished Wind Waker for 2 reasons. 1.I broke my copy of it for the gamecube. 2.I was 11 when I played Wind Waker,I got scared by the redeads in the Earth Temple :(

Favourite Legend of Zelda Game: Majora's Mask, followed by Twilight Princess (or, Ocarina of Time), WindWaker and finally, Skyward Sword. Minish Cap was fantastic, too, and is my favourite handheld LoZ game.
Triforce Section: Wisdom.

I am part of the Facebook "N> Majora's Mask for 3DS [Remake]" fanpage lol

I will purchase the Wii U to play the HD WindWaker after the price drops. I already have three copies of WindWaker and haven't finished Skyward Sword or Twilight Princess yet (I got stuck a few years ago and now I can't get unstuck because I don't know what I've done and what I still have left to do), so there's no rush.

I'd rather wait with buying the Wii U untill a Zelda game drops as well. I already missed out on all the DS Zelda games because I never got around to buying one, and just didn't see any point in it now, so not making the same mistake with the Wii U, however at the moment, the price is kinda out of reach. But I seriously don't want to miss out on any future Zelda titles that are gonna be on that console, and especially not if they're also gonna make a Zelda remake :p But I'm looking forward to see whatever pops up.

I'm not planning on investing in a WiiU until a major (new) Zelda game comes out either. I'm currently fine with the consoles I have, specially since major games are coming out sooner (Fire Emblem: Awakening and Pokémon X/Y) to keep me busy until then.

I also would like to say that Europe is getting it's share of the Symphony of the Goddesses, but thanks to the deadline of my Master Thesis being the week after, I doubt I'll be able to go. I'm this close to beg NoE to add some more concerts the following week or over the summer. >3<

I'm sure that by now, everyone has already heard of it, but Nintendo announced Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons on the Virtual Console.
And what's more: their new 3DS Zelda Game:

A Link to the Past 2 (Title subject to change).
