    Are we seeing the Switch successor come out this year?

    I guess in terms of pure collectability, but it doesn't feel good from a content and price point perspective. It's asking players spend $60 on a gussied up GameCube game with a fancy hat. I'm sure people will, because Nintendo, but I'd still point to emulation as a superior option. Nintendo...

    What type of cell phone do you use?

    Woah, we got a badass over here.

    Are we seeing the Switch successor come out this year?

    Hey, if people keep buying these $60 graphical touchups then Nintendo has no reason to stop. :eyes:

    Are we seeing the Switch successor come out this year?

    So I'm taking that Pokemon Z announcement as a sign that the Switch U is heading for some sort of release next year maybe. I'm basing this mostly on how bad all the open world games on the Switch have looked even though the system can run Breath of the Wild, so they're probably waiting to show...

    What Made You Happy Today?

    I finally got a washer working in my apartment. It's a slightly smaller one that has to hook up to the kitchen faucet, but it works. Man, I miss the luxury of living on a barracks or a dorm and just having a laundry room down the hall. ...now I need a dryer. Probably should have thought about...

    Do You Like Fighting Games?

    I love the idea of fighting games. Seeing skilled fighting game players in action is like seeing people gaming on a level that I just can't attain. And that's why there are story modes so people like me can beat up CPUs. \o/

    An argument as to why I believe OoT and TotK Ganondorf to be one in the same.

    I guess I sort of see it as self-evident. I'm not a fan of Ganondorf just being a hat you can pass from one nameless villain to another and expect it to hold any sort of weight. If it isn't the same Ganon then it takes away from the weight of a perpetually regenerating ball of hate.

    Latest Video Game Purchase

    I bought a friend of mine a copy of Helldivers 2 so they could spread managed democracy with me. A worthwhile sacrifice.

    The Nintendo Direct News And Discussion Thread

    It'll definitely be nice to see an Epic Mickey rerelease. It sucked that the game has been trapped on Wii for so long.

    Favorite game other than Zelda?

    Probably Baldur's Gate 3, Elden Ring, or Undertale. As much as I like the franchise I don't think anything Zelda-related can quite match those games in my mind.

    Gaming Remakes

    While I'm not going to deny one's preference for a particular era of games, the gaming remake is t super new. We've seen it before with stuff like Mario and the Resident Evil 1 remake.

    Rate the Last Game That You Played

    Helldivers 2 has been one of a few games absolutely consuming my idle gaming hours. It's the satirical hyper-fascism of the first Starship Troopers film in video game form. It's the ODST that Halo never gave us. 9.5/10.

    What Are You Watching Currently?

    I rewatched Crisis On Infinite Earths Part 1. It's the big DC retcon event, but finally in animated form. It's being split into three movies and I... was surprised how much I enjoyed the first part. Spitting it into three might actually give them enough time to not make it feel super rushed.

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

    Hey, so I actually... really liked this adaptation. I still question its necessity, but I had a lot of fun with it. Most people are well cast and the special effects are (mostly) pretty good. And man, they really took advantage of not having to hide the violence off screen.

    How long do you like dungeons to be?

    As long as they need to be. I don't really think there should be a standard length or format to a dungeon. Knowing ahead of time the layout and how long it'll take to beat kind of takes away from the danger and the mystery of it all. If they're all about the same length and g through the same...

    So, is your TV still alive

    Alive, but mostly unused. Most of my movie watching and game playing tends to happen on my PC, so the TV is mostly switched on for the occasion PS5/4 game.

    Hopes For Pokémon Legends Z-A

    Well, I'd like the game to get more time in the oven. The Switch Pokemon games have made a good case for why these games being an annual franchise is not a good idea. Absolute technical ****ery of stuff like Scarlet/Violet and Sword/Shield is 90% of the reason I skipped those games. There's no...

    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:
  30. 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.
  31. 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.
  39. 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:
  40. 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.
  41. 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.
  42. 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:
  43. 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...
  46. 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.
  47. 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...
  48. 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...
  49. 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.
  50. 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.
