Better than Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess?

I'll pick this up when I get some money. My Wii needs one last big non-Smash Bros gaming session before the Wii U.

Hey, guys, personal question. And I asked this to Jaidurn, too. Do you ever play the newer Zelda titles (WW, TP) and then go back and try to play the older ones (MM, OT) and it's like "...wow this sucks"?

No. It happens the opposite with me, I play WW or TP and then I'm going back to play MM and OT.

I've been systematically ruining my childhood since the beginning of this year. I haven't gone back to the zeldas yet but a lot of the games I used to love now seem so shitty. Like wow breath of fire 4 was so poorly designed how did I never notice, you know.

Once I get a 3ds I will play oot again. Im scared to do majora's mask tho since that game had a profound effect on me in the sense that it was fucking scary as fuck as a child.

Yeah I clocked in tons of hours in Conflict: Desert Storm with my stepbro as a kid and I played it again recently and was like wow this is ass. Same thing with Blinx the Time Sweeper, American Chopper, Enter the Matrix, and Neo's Revolution

Not related to skyward sword but on the topic of remixes of zelda and stuff, Team Teamwork did this rad album called Ocarina of Rhyme where he took the music from the game and mashed it up with various vocal tracks.

Lot of zelda albums I guess

Hayashida
11-22-2011, 10:09 PM
Maybe but I don't know how many are good. That Ocarina of Rhyme one really kills it

jubeh
11-22-2011, 10:11 PM
Are you implying that the oc remix album isnt good cuz its fucking rad

Hayashida
11-22-2011, 10:13 PM
Not at all. I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet but I'm sure it's very rad.

I can honestly say that the dungeons will all be based after OoT like all 3D Zelda games, so any1 who found no entertainment from that game will find this lame, also Ocarina will always be the most challenging zelda title to me (Cant beat MM so i can say that i didnt find it fun). This game though looks to be the most interesting....Next to toon Links adventures on the open seas in wind waker which is my fav title to date.

The summary is if you hate Ocarina and Twilight Princess, this game will piss you off.

jubeh
11-22-2011, 11:00 PM
If you haven't played it how can you summarize it.

Skyward Sword is quite different to the other Zelda games in terms of dungeon structure, actually. You generally have the area beforehand requiring you to overcome a series of challenges to get to the dungeon, then a puzzle in several parts to open the door to that dungeon, which teaches you how to use the first of your new items, then the dungeon itself, which is generally fairly short but forms a cohesive whole where you have to use the first item and the second together to make it to the boss. Then the boss will require you use the second item to kill it.

It's quite a bit more complex than the older Zelda games, which went GO TO DUNGEON USE LAST DUNGEONS ITEMS TO GET NEW ITEM USE NEW ITEM TO FINISH DUNGEON AND KILL BOSS. The overworld is much more challenging than in most, which is probably because there's only one town that acts as a hub.

Really like it so far, anyway. I'm in the desert, trying to power up the generator for the Temple of Time.

i'm bout to head to the desert, but it is WAY different from the other 3d Legend of Zelda games, and to me, way harder(excluding MM)

Delphinus
11-23-2011, 08:22 PM
It's not much harder, I haven't died much, but progress is quite a struggle at times, and some of the puzzles are pretty damn hard.

jubeh
11-23-2011, 08:47 PM
Yeah I got legitimately stumped at some places. That being said the water temple in this game was actually fun as opposed to oot's water temple which seemed like an effort to get you to quit the game and go kill yourself.

You also need wii motion +. So make the counts on how much you are going to spend.

Completed it, unlocked Hero Mode (you take 2x damage, no hearts anywhere, different dialogue), will complete it again and score 100% completion this time.

Just because, I'm going to play Hero Mode on the Pro interface (no tooltips). Should I also play it without collecting any heart containers?

Never buy a shield

yes, no heart containers, thats what imma do

jubeh
12-09-2011, 05:44 PM
Too bad you can't avoid getting the sword.

Delphinus
12-11-2011, 02:48 PM
Eh, I'm getting the shields because a few enemies are literally unbeatable without them. And I decided after beating Ghirahim in the Forest Temple to pick up heart containers, because without heart containers I can't get 100&#37; completion.

EDIT: It would be nice if there were a 'Legend' mode or something where you always had 1 heart and couldn't collect any more, same as hero mode otherwise.

Like who. I broke a shield and was so overwhelmingly lazy I never bought another and found alternative ways to kill dudes I thought I needed a shield to beat.

Delphinus
12-11-2011, 07:41 PM
Like the spitting monsters in the forest. Can't think of any others, but nonetheless. And in addition, can't get 100&#37; completion without owning fully upgraded versions of all shields.

Not looking forward to fighting that tentacled freak on the Sandship on Hero Mode. FROM HELL'S HEART I STRIKE AT THEE

jubeh
12-11-2011, 07:42 PM
Aight be a wuss and use a shield

Delphinus
12-11-2011, 08:23 PM
Well something about getting Link to use the Hyrule Shield and the True Master Sword so he's at his 'classic' appearance makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside so yeah

Sylux
12-11-2011, 08:40 PM
Can you use a boomerang with a sword in this game

Delphinus
12-11-2011, 08:58 PM
There is no boomerang

Sylux
12-11-2011, 09:04 PM
It is not a Zelda game without a boomerang...!

12-11-2011, 09:06 PM

didn't know you can get a shield free from the guy who you gave a cat to.

I can't believe I even pay for a shield that looks like that.
@jubeh can you actually defeat Ghirahim without a shield? I'm there right now but I don't have a shield and keeps getting my ass kicked when I realize that I need a shield to defeat the gay.

CypressDahlia

So you need shields to defeat gays these days. I see they've gotten more aggressive.

Ghirahim is weird but Im p sure you can

hit him while he swings his sword by doing the reverse of his swing. So if he swings to his right you swing to your right.

Thanks! I got him defeated although I hate it that I didn't kill him! he still gives me the creeps!
Just wish I don't see him again soon.

edit: I'd like a refund on this shield that looks like a barrel seal.

Too bad he's the main villain of the game.

But you do get to kill him; he's the penultimate boss.

I became Ganondorf. And decided I would rather play Mass Effect!

Delphinus
12-19-2011, 07:54 PM

Ganondorf is the final boss. Skyward Sword is the earliest game in the Zelda series chronologically speaking: it has Ganondorf's origin story in it. I think Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass are the latest.

Actually, there are two storylines.

Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass are both breakoffs of when Link was a child in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. Wind Waker Link is just a reincarnation of the child Link in Majora's Mask. Same with Phantom Hourglass.

Then there's Twilight Princess where it's a break off of if Link grew into an adult and had children, thus making it possible for the Link in Twilight Princess to be a descendant of him.

Yes, Nintendo made a time rift.

Delphinus
12-21-2011, 09:11 AM
I always read the whole Link/Zelda thing as a reincarnation deal. Every time Ganondorf needs to be defeated, Link and Zelda are reborn into new bodies (Tetra is direct evidence of this, but probably all the Links). In Twilight Princess Link is a young man, but still not much older than the other Links. I figured that they don't really become Link and Zelda until they need to go do some Ganon slaying.

Of course, Ganon is also reincarnated periodically, as proven by the curse Demise lays on Link at the end of Skyward Sword.

funny thing, you can only achieve the Gold Era, if you lose against Ganondorf.
