you kinda gotta knuckle down and get after it, Empireindustries — there comes a point where the game kinda demands you not only grind, but start strategizing during even 'easy' battles in order for you to proceed without dying. experiencing the game in full is very much worth the trouble of grinding, tbqh... if it helps, i kinda made grinding into a game in itself at one point when I believe I had Aht, Stocke, and Marco on my team; i'd use Marco's ability to switch with another character and line up the attacks with Aht, raking in epic combos for mad XP. You get more XP if you work up good combos than if you don't iirc :3

All right guys, a couple things:

(a) Some of you may have noticed I've cleaned up the latter portion of this thread. Please be careful of double, triple, quadruple-posting to a thread here at NIntendo Life, it bothers other users and clutters a thread. If you've got something to add to a thread and you were the last to post, please edit your last post to add it as opposed to posting yet again.

(b) We seem to have a problem with playing nice here in the latter portion of the thread. I've gone ahead and deleted most of the nastiness, so let's all start fresh and be excellent to one another, please — and if you're not in the mood to do so, just don't bother posting until you are. Some of you guys are indeed more knowledgeable than others up in this thread, but no one's forcing you to comment here. You're not under any obligation to help anyone else with their project(s), so please, don't get uppity and snarky if someone asks a question you've seen a bazillion times. If you don't want to answer it, either someone else will or they'll figure it out on their own.

Thanks, guys! :3

@Neoproteus: The thread started off promising, but now you're straight-up entering the Twilight Zone. In each of the games Nintendo has produced so far (as well as those crap CD-i titles and any other game where he's had a cameo), Link has been portrayed in male form. We can't go back and change his gender in those incarnations of his character just because we think it'd be better that way. If Link is ever to be incarnated as a female at one point, she deserves her own adventure, her own tale to be told.

@thelastlemming: to be honest, it's starting to get to that point, lol...

You could also take into consideration that many of Link's voice actors were female.

(a) do you have to be so crude? looks like a poorly placed highlight to me.
(b) When you take into consideration that OoT, MM, WW, PH, and ST all involved Child Link, the mystery behind Link's voice actors being largely female becomes much clearer. Using a female voice actor for male child roles is nothing new in terms of animated TV shows/movies and video games.

@Neoproteus: What we're saying is that whether something matches the definition of 'art' depends entirely on the person making that personal call. Yes, a dictionary or textbook can put a definition to a word or concept, but it's belief from the individual that makes the definition true or not. Monetary value fluctuates depending on the value people themselves put into it — our US currency used to be worth a given amount of gold, and now it's hardly worth the paper it's printed upon. Language changes daily and shifts greatly over time — we would hardly be able to understand one of Shakespeare's plays if we watched one during his lifetime due to not only the words and grammatical structure but the way those words were actually pronounced back in his day.

In short, what one person sees as an 'expression of human creative skill and imagination' is another person's trash, and there's no helping it until they change their mind.

@DudeSean: sorry to keep following the tangent, but the problem with the 'games as art' argument is that 'art' is entirely subjective, and there is nothing set in stone that controls what a given person can and/or will view as 'art'. There are those who will argue that games are indeed art, some that would view some games as art and others not, and still more who view games as just fun, with no artistic value whatsoever, and all are technically correct so far as the individual in question is concerned.

hey, some of us tried, but when the majority doesn't want to be mature about it, there's not much that can be done. no online forum has a chance in hell of advancing a major IRL-affecting issue like this, but if one person's mind can be opened by something that's been said here about the topic, it's worth it for me to have spoken my mind IMO.
