    Obscure gaming consoles.

    Definitely the Sega Nomad. It was an official portable Sega Genesis before homemade portable conversions were cool. You could even hook it up to a TV, plug a controller in, and treat it like a regular Genesis.

    Was Hylia "Zonai" and Died "Naturally" Reincarnating as "The First Queen Of Hyrule" Sonia.

    It's the Zelda way. In ten years we're going to see a bunch of discussion wondering if the Blimkin species from Balloons of Eternity is actually the Zonai after they shapeshift into a bunch of penguins.

    Microsoft Xbox Potentially Going Third Party?

    Nothing has changed, but Microsoft themselves indicated during the Activision merger hearings that they may leave the console business in 2027 if system sales and Gamepass subscriptions did not significantly increase. So far neither number has budged much.

    Spoiler General Screenshot Thread

    I've been playing entirely too much Helldivers 2. This isn't exactly the most cinematic screenshot, but it is a very pretty game.

    Microsoft Xbox Potentially Going Third Party?

    I'd be possible, but unlikely. They tried the vague motion of console-ized PCs before with the whole Steam Machine project and that was a dud.

    Microsoft Xbox Potentially Going Third Party?

    It might mean someone else finally stepping into the console sphere and not dying. It's been a Nintendo/Microsoft/Sony race for so long that it's easy to forget it hasn't always been so.

    Game of the Generation

    In the years and months leading up to the release of Starfield there existed a vague buzzword whispered across social media platforms: game of the generation. It was not only mentioned when describing what Starfield would be like if it were the "game of the generation", but what it would be like...

    Microsoft Xbox Potentially Going Third Party?

    It isn't too surprising. Back during the merger hearings when Microsoft decided it was going to buy Activision they indicated that they would likely leave the console business if console sales and gamepass subscriptions didn't improve by 2027. Since neither seems to have really happened, it...

    What do you hope to see in the next Zelda? (The princess, not the game)

    Or maybe the whole game, like some sort of... legend? Maybe one about Zelda or something? :eyes:
  11. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    What do you hope to see in the next Zelda? (The princess, not the game)

    This is true. I'd make exceptions for stuff like TP and OoT, but in something like TotK there's seemingly a five-ish year gap where not much has happened.
  12. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    What do you hope to see in the next Zelda? (The princess, not the game)

    For her to play a real role in the plot and not just be a victim. But I also think it would be cool to see a Zelda written in a way that more realistically aligns with monarchies. Emphasize the class difference between her and Link and make it intrinsic to their plot and their dynamic. Also...

    Was Hylia "Zonai" and Died "Naturally" Reincarnating as "The First Queen Of Hyrule" Sonia.

    No, since there's nothing in game to suggest that happened. Considering that Sonia's only contribution to the plot was being the first to die she'd make for a terrible demigod. And since TotK established that dragons come about from mortals eating their secret stone things there isn't anything...

    What launch titles do you expect for the next Nintendo console?

    I think it depends on whether Metroid Prime 4 has been quietly canceled or not. If it hasn't then I'd expect Prime 4. If it has then I'd expect some version of Prime 2. A remaster isn't exactly a hot ticket item, but it's something to put on the shelf. I also wouldn't be surprised by $60 ports...

    What are Your Thoughts on the ATLA Live-Action Remake?

    I question the necessity of it. The show looks okay so far based on the trailers, but the original show is still eminently watchable. If you throw on an episode of early ATLA then your first complaint is likely to be the aspect ratio, since it was just old enough to make the jump from 4:3 to...

    WW & TP HD, when?

    This is Nintendo we're talking about. I dunno if I can see them jumping to 4k for at least another two console generations.

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    The theory's basis has been stuff like "they're the same age" and "they both have blonde hair". I understand it pretty well and, yes, I will scrutinize it. It might make for alright fanfiction, but it's got about as much evidence backing it as the idea that Fado is Link's long lost sister whose...

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    I don't get your logic, man. None of that was evidence for the incest siblings, because none of the things brought up in that post at all suggest any sort of familial relationship. It'd be like if I presented you a Gatorade bottle and said it was proof that Barack Obama is my father. Me pointing...

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    Doesn't at least one official manga adaptation suggest and then never follow through on a romantic connection between those iterations of Link and Zelda? That feels like a heck of a detail to include if the intention was for them to be siblings.
  20. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    I don't think I'd agree that it has anything to go off, but this Fado theory though... :eyes:
  21. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    No, I made up a theory with no factual backing that I was comparing the Link/Zelda sibling thing to.
  22. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    Then let me use another baseless theory as evidence for my first baseless theory: Kokiri aren't actually a separate species, but Hylian children left in the forest by neglectful parents. The only reason Link ages is because he leaves. This obviously proves the Link/Fado connection.
  23. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    Don't forget the part of that nonsense theory that says Fado's lifespan was artificially extended by her time in the forest, allowing Link to age to the point where they're identical biologically speaking. Link only starts to age because he leaves the forest.:eyes:
  24. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    That wasn't evidence. That was as much evidence as Fado's blonde hair. Nothing brought up here in any way indicated a familial relation between the two. We know two things about their respective mothers: 1) Link's mother abandoned him in the forest in front of a talking tree. Mother of the...

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    Malon's family owns a slew of horses and they aren't high class. Ganon owns a horse and he's the outcast leader of a society of vagrants living in the desert. Link eventually comes to own a horse as a child and he's little more than a homeless wanderer by the time the game finishes. Link and...
  27. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    Again, what points? There is literally no evidence to suggest any sort of relation. No such relation is indicated or even hinted at either in game or in the manga.
  28. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    There isn't any evidence. Why is Impa around? Because monarchs hired nurse maids to care for their inbred bloodlines and passed off the actual parenting to other people. There is no information about Link or Zelda's heritage to indicate any sort of familial connection. That being said, let me...
  29. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    There should be proof when contending that the theory has any basis. The theory has no validity, because there is no evidence to support that any iteration of Link and Zelda are siblings. If her mother's absence is indicative of anything it's how Nintendo really doesn't like putting women in any...
  30. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    And there is neither evidence nor proof that Link and Zelda are siblings. No information in any game has ever suggested such a thing.
  31. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    That is... certainly a sentence. I don't think I've ever heard someone say that there's evidence for something right before saying there's no proof for the thing they're saying there's evidence for. I'm reasonably sure that a dictionary would tell you both words mean about the same thing.
  32. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    "Evidence" is a strong word here. There really isn't anything in any entry to suggest Link and Zelda are related. Heck, if any iteration of them were then it'd lend some uncomfortable incest undertones to any later later romantic portrayal of the two as if that'll ever happen.
  33. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    I mean, it is just making stuff up. There's nothing in game that ever hints at any sort of familial relationship between the two. If blonde hair makes someone my sister then boy do I have a lot of sisters.

    What is your unpopular Zelda opinion?

    You know Link would go into that with all the sexual prowess of a damp piece of wood. :eyes:

    Ocarina of Time Link and Zelda are siblings?!

    Great Deku Tree's kind of a prick. This is the same sentiment tree that lied to Link about his heritage and allowed him to be bullied all throughout childhood.
  36. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    What is your unpopular Zelda opinion?

    I tend to say none of them, since I don't Link has ever expressed the slightest interest in anyone romantically. :eyes: I just feel like that sort of thing needs chemistry to work and Link is about as volatile as a jug of hotdog water
  37. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    What is your unpopular Zelda opinion?

    Man, I'd love for one game to actually have them to commit to it. Better that than one VA coming out later and saying, "Yes, I totally think they're dating even though they never do anything as a couple to indicate there's any sort of interest there."

    Are we seeing the Switch successor come out this year?

    Both is possible. The Steam Deck is already beyond a portable PS4 or Xbox One and it's within the Switch's price range. That's kind of the minimum I'd expect if they're just going to do a new model.
  39. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    Are we seeing the Switch successor come out this year?

    That feels like the bare minimum if the system wants to stay relevant with decent ports. Admittedly, I also don't think it should just aim to be another Switch. That seems like a path to Wii U status.

    Order 66: Inhibitor chip or not?

    I don't like inhibitor chips in fiction. I think they're lazy plot devices often used to take away the moral importance of the decisions being made. In the yonder before times of the fabled Star Wars Expanded Universe the clones were just following orders. The books and stories then put more...

    The timeline is real, but do we really need it?

    I don't think it can really be said that was put into it when the timeline can change from source book to source book, especially not when stuff like TotK just ignores any attempt at pretending to care about the timeline.

    If Nintendo goes such a route I will take that as permission to emulate their entire pre-Switch library. :eyes:
  46. Bowsette Plus-Ultra

    WW & TP HD, when?

    I don't think we're getting them. I'm of the mind that if they were gonna port TPH and WWHD to Switch that they'd have done it by now, especially since major third party support has kind of slumped following the release of the XboSX and PS5. TPHD and SSHD would be a good way to pad out a weaker...

    The five I were thinking of included both Nier games, Undertale and Deltarune, and Spec Ops: The Line. They all confront it in different ways, but they all end up pointing the finger back at the player and saying, "Did it make you feel good?" In the case of Spec Ops it's about pointing at the...

    Pranked. You just got pranked, bro. This is in fact not a thread about the nonexistent link between violence in video games and violent actions by those who play them.
