    She's not actually a bounty hunter and i'm not sure why they picked that term then since it only confuses things for us who have seen Star Wars. Their intention was she was a travelling hero who fixed problems for free before vanishing over the horizon. There's some interview somewhere where the guy was aghast at the idea that she'd ask for payment for her work.

    I want a proper Metroid ‘Woman with No Name’ style Western now. I know the isolation is pretty essential, but I also want to see Samus give some alien kid a cowboy hat while she escapes from a self-destructing planet.

    What ... where am I? When did the Zelda thread turn into the Metroid thread?

    I guess when there is no Metroid news we talk about Metroid in the next best thread. There IS a Metroid thread ... don't @ me bro.

    On Topic: I would actually try a LOZ2 re-imagining. I've hesitated on trying Zelda 2 because ... wait ... I'm remembering trying it VERY briefly in my younger days as I type this. From my vague memory, it was hard to control and I think I died super quick. I never owned the game so it must have been at a friends house or something. Still would like for it to get the new LA treatment with some quality of life improvements.

    Yeah Retro had a "cross wires" situation with Nintendo and/or cultural misunderstanding.

    They wanted to add Bounty missions to Prime and Nintendo did not. The exchange was basically:

    Retro: "We want to include Bounty missions for Samus to turn in for a reward."
    Nintendo: "What? No!"
    Retro: "Why not. She is a Bounty Hunter after all."
    Nintendo: "Of course she is, that's way she can't take payment."
    Retro: "...What?"
    Nintendo: "She is a Bounty Hunter, she travels the stars and sets things right."
    Retro: "...I don't think you guys know what a "Bounty Hunter" is."

    According to Retro it took them a couple of days to actually sort out and explain what a "Bounty Hunter" was. Nintendo just thought it sounded cool. Which, I mean, yeah of course it does.


    Although apart from that exchange, most all other sources say she gets paid by the Feds, but she isn't always "on the clock" as it were.


    edit- Or as I understand it, she doesn't do what she does to get paid, but if it just so happens that she does then great.

    *looks around at what the ZELDA thread has turned into ... cries inside*

    Recently, I have been watching a Warframe twitch streamer play BOTW for the first time. It has been fun reliving all the shrines and moments from BOTW and giving cryptic hints at puzzle solutions. The guy loves the game and HIGHLY recommends it to anybody who asks on the stream. Zelda and Warframe are on totally different ends of the spectrum gameplay wise. So you know when Nintendo makes a game that somebody who has played Warframe for more than four years NOT ABLE to put the game down (and has 16-18 hour streams) you know they knocked it out of the park.

    Don't quote me on this, but I think if you have the Nintendo sub, you can play Zelda 2. I doubt it's as bad as you remember.

    Or I should say I, personally, thought it controlled just fine. It's really not that much harder than a large percentage of NES era games. And spending 30 or so minutes grinding lessons the difficulty quite a bit.

    Isn't Captain Falcon also a 'Bounty Hunter'?

    Funnily enough I'm pretty sure there's an event match in Smash Bros Melee with Samus and Falcon and it's described as being a race between bounty hunters to claim the reward, or something similar. Seems like at least somebody knew what a BH was.

    Damn you autocorrect, its lessens, not lessons.

    IDK Goat, my memory is that most of the games back then pulled some form of fuckery. Making sure I was a few levels stronger than my enemies just doesn't strike me as inherently bad. Hell, I still do that with modern games like Assassin's Creed and Fallout.

    They're barely related, so just stick with Majora's Mask if you're getting into it.

    Ocarina can be played later, and I don't think there's any sort of dealbreaker as far as gameplay that you'll hate going from Majora to Ocarina.

    Apparently a group of Minecraft players in Japan worked with (?) Nintendo and recreated Hyrule castle from BotW before the calamity.



    No download links yet for the world to explore yet, but Nintendo posting it on their official Japanese account and web site is pretty cool.

    Majora's Mask was actually the first Zelda game I played through on my own! Ocarina of Time was too scary for me (yes, I am kind of a wimp!), but I managed to get through the much scarier and creepier Majora's Mask with the help of a friend I would call up and chat with while playing. Also, I had my neighbor come over and do the Lon Lon Ranch event, because it is objectively terrifying. I didn't go back to OOT until after I'd played TP, and to this day MM remains one of my favorite games.

    So, hey, here's an annoying thing. A few days ago I started over in Breath of the Wild (I LOVE THIS VIDEO GAME). For the first two days I played, the Hero's Path Mode on the world map would accurately map my movement in the new file. Then yesterday (and now today) it started to map a previous save file combined with the new one.

    That's kinda obnoxious. Makes the whole thing worthless.

    The game is fucking huge. Looking at my Hero's Path after 50-60 hours revealed some incredible blind spots I had on the map. Like the perpetually-storming area south of the bird dungeon? Walked past it every single time.

    I'm playing Twilight Princess again because of third party inspiration and it's still pretty good. On the Wii because i'm a scrub who is two generations behind in Nintendo hardware for personal reasons, but dang if this game doesn't have the best side characters in the series in it. It's really where I started to get annoyed that Link doesn't talk, because he's just there all :| while these cool and interesting people are talking at him.

    And i'm not even counting Midna in that because she's not a side character she's the goddamn protagonist, she carries the game entirely on her own.

    Wound up grabbing this with a voucher, basically played all weekend. Pretty fun but I feel like I notably haven't heard the Zelda theme much if at all; the odd faint snippet. Some of the piano music is quite good.

    Weapon degradation is fairly odd, weapons don't last nearly as long as they should and while I guess the goal was to get you to change up your weapon usage, it's more annoying in practice than anything. I got the Master Sword Sunday afternoon and found it didn't seem to last long either, though thankfully it comes back... after 10 minutes? That is a bit of a drag. Combat is otherwise fairly satisfying but I need to practice.

    No fishing? Other than grabbing them or chucking bombs into lakes. Kind of a drag.

    Rupees seem bizarrely sparse and I was mulling over selling items I knew I'd need later (burned myself once by selling a bunch of teeth and horns which I later needed) until I pushed north and just spent 45 minutes snow bowling for them. I'd rather they just accumulate over time from enemies really, farming a mini game for an hour wasn't ... ideal?

    Roaming the map actually seems to feel best on foot, there's generally something or other to see or head towards including harvesting and often it seems to involve fording a river or climbing a cliff. I've grabbed a couple horses, but they tend to be more of a hassle than anything as I can't fast travel with them and just loath leaving Sassy out in the middle of a field somewhere. I'm surprised there isn't more airborne threats, given how much I use the paraglider to sail over the world.

    Cooking is pretty enjoyable, and the little animation and song are catchy enough that it makes up for having to hear it over and over and over since you can't queue up your cooking.

    Shrine puzzles for the most part are alright, with the odd shitty waggle one although I found it was easier in some cases to flip over a playing field, then sway a dropping ball with the entire playfield like a giant racquet.

    You are honestly safe to sell monster teeth and horns if you need the cash for something, you end up with so much more monster stuff as the game progresses.

    The weapon thing drags at the beginning but once you get a few upgrades you start to become a weapon hoarder if anything.

    You hear more music if you ride on horses, if that is your bag. They're not "fast travel" but they're a great way to see the sights and keep your eye out for things you missed, and horseback combat vs. the guardians is really fun. But you are right, the game is absolutely designed around you walking and climbing around.

    The game isn't perfect but I hope you enjoy it!

    Money will be scarce for a good while.
    You don't really need much of it anyway until you're trying to do side quest stuff and such, or just complete like every single outfit, etc..


    Yeah weapons get to a point where you're more worried about having to throw them away because you can't carry that many, than not having enough of them to live through the wear.
