    It certainly can be. That shot of the Terminator at the end of The Terminator is unsettling as hell. Ditto ED 209 in Robocop. But I really don't feel like, say, Wallace and Gromit or Robot Chicken is particularly creepy. That's the thing about the creeps, though--everyone has their own limits. I'm not gonna say Vow is nuts for that. Not when there are so many better reasons.

    Take a look at this. It is not standard stop motion claymation, but 2D.

    This is...different

    Still kinda creepy

    I used to think mm and ww were about even

    But there are things that I'd change about ww

    Majora on the other hand

    wouldn't change a hair on its head

    except for all those changes the 3ds remake is making to make it better

    I mean those are minor perks, they're nice to have but I haven't been sitting here for 15 years saying "mm really needs a different save system and touch screen inventory controls"

    Whereas ww has a few actual design flaws (IMO)

    What do you think the design flaws of WW are? Out of curiousity.

    The major one to me:

    The game world is designed to be explored at your own pace. Pick a direction and go and see what you find!

    But everything else is works against that and tries to funnel you down the critical path of the game.

    A lot of people complain that the lacing of the game comes to a screeching halt near the end because you have to do the triforce hunt

    But if you ignore the king of red lions constantly yelling at you to hurry hurry hurry to the next destination, and just goof around and poke at the game at your own pace, you'll have the majority of the triforce pieces before you ever get to the point where you need them

    Also the triforce hunting has a lot of unnecessary padding to it, which has the hd remaster partially addressed

    You have to find a triforce map, grind rupees to get tingle to interpret it for you, then go out to the location to dredge for it

    It should just give you the triforce piece in the chest

    Which again like half of them are like that in the hd version so good on them for that

    I do wish the HD version of WW had given you the option to have the full Triforce quest but whatever

    It's still great

    Retro is a good developer

    I don't even give a shit whether they make another Prime or keeping making DKC games.

    If they made their Donkey Kong Country games into a trilogy before moving onto something else that would be fine with me.

    And you should absolutely get Metroid Prime Trilogy. Its quite possibly the best thing on the eShop right now. Definitely the best value.

    There are very few games like Metroid prime

    There's lots of games like dkcr

    If they matched the level of improvement between Returns and Tropical Freeze, a third Retro Donkey Kong Country game would be incredible. That said, Tropical Freeze was mostly borne out of ideas they couldn't fit into Returns. Unless they came up with a bunch more stuff really late in development of Tropical Freeze, they probably don't have another one in them right now. I will say that I want to know what they're working on next. Even (maybe even especially) if it's a property I'm not already familiar with, I have a lot of faith that it will be great.

    I got really good at the time trials in Returns but I haven't attempted Tropical Freeze's quite yet.

    Don't ever stop moving unless you have to, look for ways to "sequence break" through certain areas, keep your momentum going as long as possible while rolling. I had plenty of gold medals and silver in the last game with only a handful of pesky bronze medals on stages left over that I just couldn't improve on.

    Then watch it turn out to be a game in which you beat up wave after wave of Waluigi as any other character in the Mushroom Kingdom.

    I pretty much just want Retro to do whatever they want at this point

    My excitement for any project they are on will increase with however new and interesting it is, because a developer that can pull off a FPS with puzzle solving elements and a rock solid 2D platformer that's hard as balls is capable of damn near anything

    I'm still occasionally amazed at how good the platforming in Metroid Prime is. Like, some developers still cant get third-person 3D platforming right and Retro did it 12 years ago in first-person.

    Am I still the only person in the world who hated everthing about both the n64 zelda games?

    Okay just checking.

    Out of curiosity, and assuming it wasn't hyperbole, what makes you hate them rather than simply dislike them out of preference for others in the series?

    For me the n64 zeldas were some of THE formative games I have played, so I have a particular bias, but harsh criticism of OoT at least always comes across as iconoclasm.
    I don't hate them, but I definitely don't think they're that special. Like, I'd rate Wind Waker and Skyward Sword above them, and most of the 2D Zeldas above even that, so that puts them both near the bottom of the list.

    This makes sense, but at the same time I think it's easy to take for granted what the n64 games accomplished in bringing zelda into a 3D environment. Given how many other series experienced absolutely abortive attempts going from 2D to 3D, the fact that the n64 Zeldas not only pulled it off, but are arguably still very playable games to this day, is no mean feat.
    A lot of it is the controls.

    I realize it was a first attempt to bring a traditionally 2d game into a new dimension and a lot of people cut it some pretty big slack but I just don't like how any of the movement or fighting works. Felt half baked. I felt the same way about Mario 64, except even more strongly Hate is a strong word for OoT but not for mario 64.

    I've replayed OoT on the 3ds and it really isn't too bad with some improvements to the movement and such just to adapt it to the inputs on the 3ds

    So you want a Splatoon character as a clone of Snake? You might say you want a... Liquid Snake.
