Well defeat the Dark Palace today and rescued the first Sage. Just a quick question though is there an upgrade to the power glove? I keep coming across those huge gray rocks but no way to pick them up or break them.

Yes there is, it is in one of the dungeons.

Direct answer....

It's in the swamp/desert dungeon. Rescue the sage from the thieves' hideout to be able to rent the rod of sands.

So, I have beaten the endboss! The game is pretty much what I expected: Fun, but not great! I think Spirit tracks is much better! Here is my opinion in a nutshell:

+No handholding
+The rental-system gives you the freedom to explore and play dungeons in any order, though if they use this system again in future Zelda's then the (possibly) new items should be obtained in the field/dungeon!
+The wallpainting mechanic is fun and together with the items it's used for interesting puzzles
+Nice music

-The overworld is mostly the same
-Graphics are okay, but not super
-No really new items
-Dungeons are far to short and simple! I don't hope short levels become the Nintendo trend: The Mario 3D world levels also feel very short, or is that just me?

By the way: My favorite level probably is the Ice ruins! It's the longest level and pretty complex! Also, that you can already visit all the floors from the start gives it a fresh feel! I guess many newcomers will have a lot of trouble with this dungeon! My second favorite may be the Earth temple (heh, this is the second time a Zelda Earth temple is actually filled with lava, not earth!), because of the fire-pillars and the seesaws!

Have you guys found any easter-eggs yet? Spoiler: I saw some portrets of Makar on some walls inside houses!

So i have to ask is the Master Ore only found in dungeons?

I found one piece in the Thief's Town dungeon

But I was just wondering should I look for them in the overworld as well?

A lot of people are mad at Gamespot for giving ALBW the GOTY award and it's hilarious.

I've read through the entire thread, and you guys just don't get it: when a website chooses Game of the Year, they have a certain responsibility. Think about it, the gaming media has a lot of power over the minds of gamers. Where do we go for our gaming news? These websites. Where do we go for gaming reviews? These websites. Where do we go for analysis and predictions of companies that may or may not be wrong but take them as fact in our console war threads anyway? These ****ing websites.

You see, it's not about what is the most fun game, but about the best game! And I'm sorry you guys, but Link Between Two Worlds is just objectionally not the best game. Reviewers should look at how much money was invested into these games, how much production time went into it, how much the story affects us emotionally. It's not about fun, it's about content. It's about experience.

And now, Gamespot has really screwed up. Now gamers are going to look at this handheld game and think it might be better than The Last of Us. THE LAST OF US. Do you know how many Game of the Year awards that got!? Jeez Gamespot.

Worst of all, now Nintendo is going to think that making titles like Link Between Two Worlds is alright. They're going to keep pumping out these SNES remakes and think that, "Oh, this will be fun for a new generation herp derp hope they like it." They won't learn that it's not about fun anymore! And it's all thanks to websites like Gamespot and all the man-children that bought Link Between Two Worlds.

Hope you guys enjoy your new gaming future, I'm out.

"They won't learn that it's not about fun anymore!" Because games aren't supposed to be fun. Right.

So...the GOTY should be determined by bloated budgets, biased reviews, and what everyone wants to see as the GOTY, oh and how much of everything but fun it is? Okie dokie then

Also, I love how just about every hateful comment I saw about the new Zelda game indicates how the user did not even play it.

Two are in dungeons, two are not.

Um, only one is in the overworld. The other three are in dungeons: Skull woods, thieves' hideout and dark palace

@DarkwingLz: Thanks I found two of them in dungeons, and have yet to tackle the other dungeons it's in. Right now I am thinking I will go get the Titan's Mitt.

When I put together my GOTY list I'll probably have A Link Between Worlds at No. 3 behind GTA V and TLoU, but eventhough I really liked those games I can see their faults. The problem with the idiotic Gamespot community, and the 'hardcore' community in general, is these clowns get hung up on stupid sh*t. I like great graphics and great story as much as anybody but there's nothing wrong with just playing a game to have some fun and when a Nintendo game hits all the high notes it's usually more fun than anything currently on the market. I really don't get why some people think that shouldn't be factored in. As much as I like TLoU, looking back, there were some boring as all hell parts to it. There was nothing inherently wrong with the gameplay. The mechanics were good, nothing really broken but there are some parts where literally nothing is going on. With A Link Between Worlds, I didn't think there was a minute of boredom. That absolutely has to be factored in then you have the tried and true gameplay formula with some neat twists and it's a worthy GOTY winner. But everybody knows what they say about haters.

Thanks. I have the Swamp Palace item and I have yet to journey into those other places.

Have you guys found any easter-eggs yet?

There's a really cute Easter egg somewhere. I don't remember where, but it's a Wanted poster on a wall with the picture cut out. If you merge onto the wall and go behind the poster you can have Link's face as the portrait.

I got this game as an early Christmas gift from me! How thoughtful!

I'm waiting to open it for a while just so I could tell people I own the game and am completely casually not playing it. Ha!

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!
