Okay, exactly two weeks since my last comment here. I didn't think it would take me so long but i didn't experience anything outstanding / controversial enough to make me post here. I have now done everything i can do before "using" the Temple of Time for the first time. And it all just took me about 30 hours... But 30 hours in which i rarely was bored at least. What has taken up the most time was to show the different masks to all of the characters i've met yet.While this all means it's not likely that i finish the game until July 31st i wouldn't wanna have it any other way.
So here are some more random thoughts
@Luigi78: Just to make that perfectly clear ... I know about the 'Game Notes' feature. But i still think that any game like Zelda or some RPG's should give you the option to precisely mark points on the map yourself. In the game. Without the need to suspend it.

@LTD - the marking on the map thing would be great. Then you could mark the bombable holes in the ground. EDIT: and where the big poes are in Hyrule Field.
Anyway, this game finally arrived today, so I'll be popping it in tonight and play through the Deku Tree. Will probably end up playing more, as I'll just explore the area in 3D like a new game.

It seems that you don't have to use the spells very often.
This changes once you get to Master Quest. Din's fire is needed as soon as possible.

Righty-ho then, Random Thoughts: 3rd Edition
So here's the story. I was in the Fire Temple, and there's a puzzle where you have to hit a ruby which removes a ring of fire around the exit, so you can proceed. So I tried shooting arrows at it, but I couldn't get to the exit in time. Then I tried chucking a bomb at it, which worked like a charm. After this fleeting success I wandered around the upper levels of the dungeon feeling good about myself until I accidentally fell down next to the ruby again. HOWEVER, I had run out of bombs and every single pot refused obstinately to yield a single explosive shell, leaving me stranded there, FOREVER! This was so frustrating I went out and bought a punch-bag from IKEA and promptly socked the living daylights out of it for the next couple of hours. OK, so that didn't really happen but I'm still stuck down there and it's taking it's toll on my mental psyche.
Blast, I seem to have done too many asterisks, just ignore them, OK?

What is the second mask again?

I'm finding this game way too distracting. I would much rather be playing it right now rather than working!

@Tech101. Thanks, and it's the skull mask. I have a sneaking suspicion who I have to sell it to...

Got this game Thursday! Have played up to Zora's Domain as a child. The graphics are just gorgeous! I never thought I would see Hyrule so stunning. I have noticed the 3D effect doesn't do a lot in the game. That's a shame because it seems nothing uses the 3D effect much. I have had a try with the motion controls too. For aiming it's pretty good, I can usually hit a target. For looking around I must look ridiculous turning the console all around me to see behind me! My family thinks I'm using the camera... And of course it messes with the 3D effect turning it behind you. For the game itself, the most recently I've played it was finishing Master Quest on GCN, so playing the regular quest is very easy to me. I'm looking forward to running into walls all the time and getting lost in the mirrored Master Quest!

I've play from the Bottom of the Well to the very end today. That took a while. O.O I first played and beat the original a few months back, and I can't believe how easy the game is the second time around. I hardly died at all, while during my first playthrough I died like ten times in the Deku Tree (I know, I know...). I remember struggling so much with Ganon, but now I easily defeated him on my first try (and I didn't even need my fairies). All in all, I think I had more fun the second time around. But I think I'm gonna wait a while before I attempt to play Master Quest.
Anyway, the 3DS version is the definitive version of this game IMO. I don't know if I can ever go back to the original again.

Ok so I cleared the Forest Temple last night. Was it always so hard? I backtracked through the same room over and over and over until I nearly went mad. After that I went back to the past to learn Epona's Song so I could get Epona in the future. Two races later and I did BTW I never really realised how much cinematics there are at the time of returning to Zelda with the 3 Spiritual Stones. It was good to sit back with the 3D blasted up and enjoy events unfold. Now I'm wondering if any of the original glitches still work like the Infinite Sword Glitch or getting 100 skulltula tokens in like 5 minutes outside Zelda's Castle??

Progression: Now before the Water Temple
There were two situations which i found harder than the quite breezy rest of the game. One was the race with Ingo and the other in the Fire Temple where you're in a room with two enemies which recover when you don't kill both fast enough. It didn't help that i wasn't in the mood for doing big strategy attack and defense work either. But two fairy bottles nothing else to really put in there yet helped prevent me from my third Game Over. (The other two were out of pure curiosity in the "room" with one Undead and in the cave on Death Mountain.)And i think i know why i quit the game when i played it first. It might've had something to do with not knowing how to open all the doors in the Fire Temple. On the other hand i remember doing the bow challenge in the Gerudo desert so now i'm kind of irritated about where i really left off in 2003.
Get out of my head! Part 4
@Jango-Forest: I guess you've already made it through the Temple but i can definitely say there is another way to activate the ruby. Without any ammunition required.

I had the same problem in the forest temple Ltd. Those two enemies took me forever to kill. So my progression is just past the forest temple. I want to do all side quests I can before moving on to the next temple and that's quit a bit of game play. IE lens of truth biggest fish and so on.

I'm at the same place as LTD: before the Water Temple. Except I'm not really diving into any sidequests or anything for some reason. I think I just want to see all the game in glorious 3D before devoting my time to sidequests. One thing I noticed about the game that changed from the original was the music in the Fire Temple... was this the muslim thing that got removed from the original? And why has it been approved again now?

So it took me two days to complete the Water Temple. (More like i stayed up far too long on Tuesday reaching into early Wednesday but you get my point.) All in all i didn't find it too hard and the design of it is really great. I can only imagine how cumbersome it must have been to equip the boots the old way. The boss looked gorgeous, even kind of cute and the look on Link's face when Princess Ruto talks about the two being ment for each other is priceless.The only real problem i had was the final room before the boss. I always kept rolling thinking that only then i could make it up there. Navi's talking couldn't convince me that i was wrong either. I even warped outside and turned back time because i thought that you could only get up there from above. I was very frutrated and afraid that after all these years i had once again reached a point where i could not get through the game without any external help. How stupid and relieved i felt when i tried again and finally figured out what wasn't even a riddle at all.
Yesterday i anticipated i could talk to the Zora after having completed the temple. Instead it was the first time i wasn't sure about where to go and was frustrated thinking i had to quadriple-talk to everybody again without them saying anything new. Yes i thought about just quitting the game. Luckily i clenched my teeth, went down the right road quickly and was rewarded with an amazing cutscene and the anticipation that i will be able to go into a new dungeon today.

I powered through the game a bit in the last few days and beat the Water and Spirit Temples and I have just obtained the Boss Key for the Shadow Temple. It's all coming to an end quicker than I thought! I must say the Water Temple's upgradedness made it so much better to play. But after that I didn't want to do the Shadow Temple as is the order of things and went to Gerudo Fortress to try to get to the Spirit Temple before realising I needed the Lens of Truth But I remembered that you get it in the Well and not the Shadow Temple so I actually did manage to do the Spirit Temple first! I always knew you could that. XD
