    Question: What is threat mechanically?

    MP...kind of

    Basically, there is a global threat level during a battle. Over time the threat level will passively go up. Your abilities are such that stronger abilities can only be used once you've reached a certain threat level. The downside to this is that your enemies' damage goes up proportionally with the threat level too, and at threat levels that are too high they'll just one-shot your guys. Some abilities will increase or decrease the threat level.

    The idea being that you have to try to manipulate the threat level such that it's high on your turns and low on your enemy's turns.

    Interesting. Threat kind of captures that but not quite.

    I am trying to think of a single word that really encapsulates that double sword mechanic. Now, there might be something that fits well within the contexts of the games story, but without knowing that, hmm...


    Destiny and Fate came to mind, but that's not quite right, I think.

    Maybe Danger level?

    If I die before David Attenborough, I don't want a funeral. I just want David Attenborough to describe a biographical dramatization of my life.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    Well, the premise of the game is that it is literally a web-browser, that happens to render the internet as a 16-bit world. Your party is on a quest to unite the flame-warring subcultures so they can band together save the internet from an existential threat. (this is all meant to be very tongue-in-cheek, obviously)

    The two metaphors we tend to be using are computer metaphors (your speed is "ping", for instance), and debate metaphors (the combat is a representation of internet arguing).

    The two ones we were thinking is something like "Loading" as in how much of the page is loaded, and it would be represented by a loading bar, etc (though it wouldn't make much sense for you to be able to make it go down), or "Interest" where basically if the interest level isn't high enough your characters just don't care enough to use their strongest abilities.

    So whats the new speed run record for OoT?

    The setup for the trick was found only a couple hours ago by a guy named Sockfolder, so it hasn't actually been implemented in any runs yet. It saves roughly a minute and a half if properly executed, and ZFG is currently streaming his attempts at grinding out the trick to perfection so he can guarantee success in an actual run. The trick consists of positioning Adult Link such that he hangs from the top parapet at a very precise angle, and then bombing and pausebuffering so that Link falls into a loading zone just before he zones out completely. Doing so tricks the game into placing Link inside Ganon's castle, but outside any solid surface and as such falling in the void.

    The trick itself, ie voiding into a loading zone, is possible as Child Link, but this consistent setup Sockfolder found is only applicable to Adult Link. This means it can't be implemented into Any%, but for MST, All Dungeons and 100% it should make an appreciable difference. It should now be possible to take MST runs below 2 hours10 minutes, and All Dungeons under 1 hour 42 minutes.

    The current Any% record, where this trick isn't applicable just yet, currently stands at 21 minutes 7 seconds by Pydoyks.

    Right, like why not delve into how they've grown up to become deeply fucked-up people because of their experiences being shrunk down to a tiny size and swallowed by one of their classmates when they were children, etc?
