@rallydefault Huh, I thought you beat normal mode without dying to get the secret ending. Maybe that's only in the original?

@damien33ad I was thinking of getting the Wii version when I get settled in just so I actually own a physical Wii game. All I've got for it now are Startropics and some other NES/SNES games on the VC.

Sorry if I got your thread locked.

Nah. Wait for the remaster. It's coming out early next year I think without all cumbersome controls. But either way it has the best story of any Zelda game as it's been described to me(I've not played thru whole thing only went thru to first dungeons)

I just want to come back after trying BotW and humbly say I take back anything I said about Ocarina being overhyped. BotW is way worse in that regard. Total chore to play.

@Magitek_Knight they mean the only difficult part is the beginning. You can get the secret ending in any mode.

And it’s true, the game is only difficult when you have 3 hearts, even in hero mode, once you’re over the hurdle that it’s the first dungeon, it’s smooth sailing.

You need a good story, interesting character and lots of puzzles. But most importantly, Every game has to dramatically increase zelda’s sexy physique

I think you're confusing it for Soul Calibur.

Or possibly One Piece.

@damien33ad I'm trying to decide between it and Wind Waker. I had the opportunity to play both on release (and even owned a GC copy of TP at one point) but never played either.

Sorry if I got your thread locked.

You can't go wrong with either. They are both supberb and must plays

Resist the urge to be a degenerate. Rise above.

@damien33ad I feel like the appropriate response would be CD-i Zelda saying "You've got to be kidding."

So after a couple of months of stops and starts I finished BotW. I've got mixed feelings on it. There was some fun stuff, some thrilling stuff, a large amount that got on my nerves (and it took around 20 hours of gameplay for me to really have any fun). The map could have been 1/4 of the size and still been too big compared to the amount of unique content (i.e. not much). Shrines are fun at first, but get old fast. Way too much equipment, healing system requires crafting and I hate crafting, the system itself is basically trial and error. The number of undocumented features or those you have to go out of your way to learn about is discouraging and annoying.

The dungeons, how few of them there are were good and the boss fights were fun if never really feeling dangerous. I died dozens of times due to regular enemies and the environment but only lost a life againt the Naboris boss which was the first I fought.

Ultimately a lot of it felt laborious and inconvenient. I hated having to walk/climb so much, and was running out of arrows and healing constantly with few pickups for either. The former is especially annoying due to how many puzzles require arrows.

Weapons system seems to be a straight up lift from Silent Hill Origins. Why a developer would borrow anything from that game is beyond me.

Music was mostly a cat on a piano or dull piano jazz but the final areas had some great stuff (mostly remixed from earlier Zeldas).

Still, I'm not sorry I played it and there's a decent short Zelda game in there if you could only trim away the endless wandering.

I'm starting Twilight Princess next. I'm looking forward to something a little more straightforward.

@Magitek_Knight nice man. Ya I didn't want to say much because I didn't want to bias you against the game but now that you've played it yes, I had many of the same feelings of disappointment and the like. Twilight Princess was really a fun game for me though. Great story,pretty dark atmosphere for a Zelda game and a lot of fun. Not my favorite anymore since playing Windwaker but had you asked me a year ago it was my favorite. Let me know how that game goes
