Sail the seas, feel the breeze.

Male, 29, United States

The ocean wide and deep beckons. What mysteries await over and within? Ruined temples of ages past. Ancient treasure submerged. All that remains above the surface are but shadows and memories of what once was. And what will be again. (photo cred: laovaan on deviantart)

A beautiful rendition! She does have a lovely voice!

BTW: At the end of this video she links to a video she made based on the Forest Temple from OoT. It is really cool! I think the video depicts the four poe sisters and how they came to be trapped in the temple. And it reminds me of what it felt like to be lost in that temple for what felt like ages.

One time I left team for glory and went back in to get a new crew to fight with. When I got to character select screen, my player was blank, my p1 finger was gone, but the screen said ready to fight. When I hit start to go to the next screen, my Wii u froze and made that beeping sound... Scary stuff!



TheWindWaker commented on New Study Finds No Connection Between Video Ga...:

Don't believe everything you see on TV... or on the internet. Just use common sense and make wise choices for yourself. My two cents is that violence in video games doesn't necessarily spawn violent behavior. Instead I think it contributes to a numbness and complacency when faced with real-world violence that should otherwise be met with a sense of injustice and a desire to see peace. In other words, our generation may be less likely to be horrified when we see brutal acts of violence, and that would be tragic.



TheWindWaker commented on Feature: Does Super Smash Bros. Wii U's Smash ...:

@AlexOlney Apologies if you've answered this already, but I didn't want to sift through the unfortunate array of comments here.

Question: You mentioned the battle where one player was small throughout. What other types of battles are set up? Does it ever team people up with one another? With Mario party in mind, what kind of zany combinations does this mode offer?




TheWindWaker commented on Hyrule Warriors Producer Would Love to Work Wi...:

I'm just ready to get my copy of Hyrule Warriors... So ready.

I don't know if they'll mess with Mario. He's a brand. Zelda fits because it can be dark and it already featured swords etc. I don't know if they'd let Mario go dark. Maybe a Smash concept but in a 3D arena could be cool (anyone remember Powerstone on Dreamcast?) Destructible environments and all.



TheWindWaker commented on North America is Getting the Limited Edition o...:

In a way, I'm glad... I was going to spend more money on something that I'll never wear, probably won't display, and box up in storage. It's a fun novelty, but my strongest connections to the games come from the stories and characters, which I will be experiencing day one with Hyrule Warriors.



TheWindWaker commented on Ubisoft's Uplay Application Hints That Watch D...:

I understand them wanting to make the most money out of Wii U. But then they should have released when hype was high, before we could read less than stellar reviews for the other consoles and start bearing a grudge. I don't imagine they'll make as much now as they would have at launch, so I'm betting on cancellation.



TheWindWaker commented on Gallery: It's OK, We Want Each And Every One O...:

Can anyone who has a 3ds XL tell me if the resolution looks low? What I mean is, on my standard size screen the images are perfectly crisp, but does blowing them up make the blurry-pixel thing happen? I've been thinking of going XL for smash, but I might wait now for these new ones.



TheWindWaker commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS S...:

There is clearly such room for awesome potential, as evidenced with the villager. I hope that we will see full-out alternates more often than just colors. Admittedly, I do agree that if the colors are as dynamic as some of Samus, I will be content to settle.



TheWindWaker commented on Rumour: Unconfirmed Smash Bros. Footage Suppos...:

I gotta say, although the videos were taken down, the one pic I saw of the dog looked cute! If it comes in black, it will be like playing smash with my black lab and I would greatly enjoy that. Especially if he throws a duck around!



TheWindWaker commented on Mario Kart 8's Hackers Open Up Over Their Plan...:

Game shark, game genie... In some ways beta quest on Zelda 64 (and levitating) was so magical and mysterious. It seemed to reveal all possibilities, such as actually seeking the Triforce. For Smash on Wii, it lead to a whole realm of creative community that was, admittedly, very exhilarating to approach, however late in the game I may have wandered in.
However, I do agree with the majority that an online competitive community should not be corrupted in such a way, and especially not so close to the release of the game. MK8 is thriving, balanced, and rewarding to those who are skilled enough to win. That's what competition is all about!
Breaking into the Wii U is likely inevitable, but perhaps it will come at a time when there are no more system updates, Mario Kart 8 is considered retro, and everyone is focused on the latest and greatest Nintendo console.

@agqwestern @Musterd @Samuel-Flutter
Thanks for the info!
It would seem that his story can simply be known from his actions.
He's not a villain, although he seek power. He wants to fight the greater evil, but he's going to do it his way. His realm extends beyond dreamland, so he would be a big fish in a small pond there. He sees the big picture, and will even fight Kirby to maintain that it remains intact.
I like him more now! Maybe I'll give him another shot in this next installment!



TheWindWaker commented on Video: The Latest Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Tr...:

I've never played a Monster Hunter and after watching that, I still have no idea what it is about. I'm thinking a realistic pokemon?

Also... @hcfwesker you are so right! I disabled adblocker to support the site, but I'm glad I'm not the only one seeing JT over there. I'm thinking, "What did I do to deserve this?"
