Is it just me or is LoZ: Twilight Princess good only once?
I mean, I beat Loz: OoT I don't remember how many times, LoZ: a Link to the Past more than you could ever imagine, ages and seasons twice and LoZ: Windwaker at least 4 times... but, I don't even feel like restarting the last one.

The Legend of Zelda : A Link Between Worlds

It looks real great!
New world : Lorule
New princess : Hilda (see my avi)
New Triforce

The game will affect the past, present and future in the Zelda timeline.

I think people forget that the original Wind Waker came out in 2002 so it's been over a decade so re-releasing it for new people is not much of a stretch.  It's not like it's from last year.  It's a great game so it deserved a remake too.

Indeed.
And playing it it feels like a totally new game.
The same as when I played OoT 3D.
Nintendo is good at HD ports.

Hyrule Warriors is a Zelda spinoff in the style of Dynasty Warriors. It's made by Tecmo Koei, the creators of Dynasty Warriors.
Looks like what it sounds like.


If this wasn't Wii U exclusive, i'd buy it in a heartbeat.

So since it was only £3 on sale, I bought Oracle of Seasons a few days ago.  I just beat the third dungeon.  I'm not the best at it but I'm doing better than I thought I would.  I found the third boss easier than the second cos I spammed the sword at the third.  I did the Blaino fight on my first try too which I'm happy about.  Even the little achievements make me happy since I'm not very good haha.  The game can do a lot of very annoying things to me but overall I'm having fun; this is my first Zelda game.  I may get Oracle of Ages while it's on sale too.  Do you guys think it's a good idea to do that?  I don't know if I'd be able to win both games any time soon, but it may be worth having it for the future if I do while it's cheaper this week for the sale.

They're both pretty good games.
They're not as similar as some say. Heck, they're not like Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks which are essentially the same game.
And you can link them in some sort.
You get codes for completing one which you use in the other to unlock an alternative end with a new boss.
If you like it enough, I'd suggest you get A Link to the Past (available on the Wii) and A Link Between Worlds (on 3DS).

Oracle Ocarina of Seasons is the puzzelyer of the two, while Oracle Ocarina of Ages is the combat oriented one. If memory serves correctly at least. Either that, or it's the vice versa.

Check on club.nintendo, they have some for the Virtual Console sometimes.
I got A Link to the Past sometimes ago on it.
Link's Awakening is cool and it has some references to other games too.
Is it the original Awakening or is it DX?
Original was on GameBoy and DX was on GBC. DX had a new dungeon and was, more colorful. XD

I have the DX one.  I started playing it today and won the first dungeon.  I'm hoping to win before ORAS comes out.  Yeah lots of Mario references already so far.

Yeah, I hope so. It definitely looks pretty nice so far.
Eh, an open world would definitely be cool, but I loved skyward sword and I love WW too from what I've played, so it's not totally necessary for me.
I'm not worried about the game being good either way :p

So I'm currently about half way through The Minish Cap which I've been playing on my GBA Player on my Game Cube.  Hopefully I'll win that and it'll be my 5th win.  I've just ordered Link to the Past for GBA too.  I wanted to get Four Swords Adventures but it's like £60 and that's ridiculous.  I might order Phantom Hourglass too.  Plus I'm going to the Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses in April.  I think by now, you could say I'm a Zelda fan.  At least a fan of the 2D Zeldas.  The 3D ones are cool but I prefer to watch them rather than play them.  My sense of direction is really bad, I can only really play top-down games.  I could walk a few miles in Minecraft and I'll be lost for hours haha.

You have a minimap though in Zelda. Minecraft just has a broken map and everything looks the same so it's easy to get lost. :P

Also, don't get Four Swords or Four Swords Adventure except if you have people to play with.
It's 4 players only. The game won't let you play alone.

Actually, Four Swords Adventures is easily played single player. I should know. You end up controling the four Links in sync, which is easier than it sounds.

the mini-maps aren't very good.  They give you a ballpark throw but they aren't good for navigation from screen to screen.

Also Four Sword Adventure has single-player and multi-player.  Though regular Four Swords is only multi-player sadly.

Also as an update, I did 4th Boss in Minish Cap today.  Also ordered Phantom Hourglass yesterday.

Damn it looks like you're really getting into zelda. That's great. It's an awesome series.
I really would recommend trying the 3d zeldas as they're really amazing as well.
Try starting out with skyward sword for the wii. I feel like you'd probably like it a lot if you gave it a shot.
It's my favorite zelda game, so I'm biased though, lol.
As for finding FSA, honestly I would just recommend getting the ROM (dun give me ban hammer plz x.x)
After all, nintendo isn't exactly selling copies anymore so the profits wouldn't be going to them anyway.

I've watched LPs of various 3D Zeldas and so I know the content of stuff like Skyward Sword and they are great games to watch, but not my kind of thing to play.  Before Zelda, I only played Pokémon; I'm not really a gamer.  I have to use a guide too because I'm not very good.  Navigating the 3D worlds will just confuse me, so I'd rather watch others doing it.

Give the wii u one a shot when it comes out! It's good to try new things, especially if that new thing happens to be awesome.
I'm not 100% sure the wii u zelda will be awesome, but im pretttttyyy confident in it.
Navigating the 3D world will probably be confusing at first, but it'll probably be a good challenge and end up being pretty fun too.
My biggest tip for 3D zeldas is to observe your surroundings if you get stuck. If you're stuck in a puzzle just observe your surroundings and go over what tools and information you have. It's really fun and rewarding imo.

They are top down style, not full on 3d like oot/ww/etc.  So while they have the semi-3d angled stuff of the DS gen (like current pokemon stuff), they are still considered top down which puts them with the 2d zeldas.

I'd call them 3D games given the fact that the Zed Axis is still used in the gameplay. Top Down or not, 3D is defined by relative space usage within three axis-es, not perspective.

I'm pretty sure he meant Top Down vs the "behind the character" Third Person perspective.

I'm pretty sure you knew what he meant, Majoras mask and Wind Waker have obvious gameplay differences from A Link To The Past or Minish Cap.

It's heckling. That's all. I still disagree of course, prefering the 3rd Person over the shoulder perspective zelda games, but that's just me, and it's mainly because I'm horrible at all of them except Minish Cap.

Ah well, they do it for the sake of quality.

I finally won Phantom Hourglass!  That was a tough game.  Some parts were so stressful, like being chased by Phantoms.  Some parts were great like rolling as a Goron or using the Hammer.  It's satisfying to have won it though.  I told myself I would do it and I did!  Finally being able to kill the Phantoms near the end was great.  The fake-out ending and then more final boss took me by surprise.  I've won 5 Zelda games in all now (OoS, OoA, ALBW, Link's Awakening and now this).  I've got unfinished Minish Cap and aLttP where I'm in places I got stuck at but I might revisit them at some point.  I might get Triforce Heroes and Hyrule Warriors Legends too maybe possibly.

Much as I hate Spirit Tracks, it's basically Phantom Hourglass without the hair pullingly stressful shit. No stupid time limit in the phantom dungeon, no stupid ocean BS. THe worst part is the evil trains and they're easy enough to deal with.

I was so stressed out and pretty much having heart attacks, sneaking and running around those phantoms.  Hardest dungeon I've ever played and having to go there half a dozen times was so tough.  It was so satisfying in that 6th go through when I could just kill them with the Phantom Sword.  Also I collected all of the Power Gems so I had a Level 2 flaming sword so that was cool.
The Oceans were okay, especially once I got all the cyclones, but I kind of wish I could have just let go of the stylus to let my hand rest instead of being worried about hazards and whatever.  I wish that the boat also had more hearts instead of always having four hearts.

The boat can have more hearts. You just need to equip a better parts. I was super lucky when I played and got a few of the gold set, so I hat like, seven.

So I won an auction on Ebay £7.50 for a copy of Twilight Princess for the Wii (I know the GC one is considered better, but it's very expensive).  This will be my first non-top down Zelda game.  Hopefully I don't suck.

In other news, I'm really looking forward to Triforce Heroes.  Will anybody want to play it with me when it comes out?  I'd love to co-op with some people.  I think it has to be 3 at a time though, I don't think they said you can do it with 2.  Let me know if you want to play it with me and then when it's out and I've bought a copy, let me know again and we can schedule something.

Also I'm at the final boss of Minish Cap but I keep getting wrecked by those 3 Darknuts and they lower my hearts so much I lose to Vaati.  Hopefully at some point soon I can post saying I've won this darn game xD

The Wii controls are a bit strange, but you can also equip an extra item, which makes up for it.

TP  Pro tips.

Walkthroughs for the GC and Wii version differ in that on the Wii, left is right and right is left compaired to the GC version. That being said, you shouldn't need a walkthrough for anything but the golden bugs, poes, and the Owl Statues since a fortune teller in game shows you where the pieces of heart are.

Speaking of Golden Bugs, you need to collect them all in order to get your wallet max sized, so it's worth it.

Anything you can collect, you can collect from a distance with the Gale Boomerang, but remember, it's almost useless for combat. For combat, stick with the bow.

Speaking of the Bow, Bomb Arrows instantly kill Stalfos. This will save you tons of trouble.

The Slingshot is totally useless once you get the boomerang, unless you're going fishing, in which case, it's great for getting your hands on Bee larva.

Once you can use Wolf Form at will, it's important to remember that the wolf homing attack is a great way to jump off a cliff if you aren't careful.

And most importantly, the Magic Armor is uselsss for anything except the final battle with who the f*ck do you think?

I won an auction for Spirit Tracks a couple days ago so I'll have that to play soon.

Also after months of annoyance finally beat the Moldorm today in A Link to the Past so I can continue with that playthrough.  Beat Agahnim (agahnim agahnim! agahnim motherf**er!) and got to dark world so I'll do Dark Palace next.

I'm at the Goron Mines in Twilight Princess but I'm falling into lava a lot (thanks wiimote! ¬_¬ ) so I'm probs gonna take a break from that to do aLttP and Spirit Tracks.  Minish Cap still unfinished because darknuts, I'll take a break from that too lol.  Last time I took a break from MC, I came back and did well so breaks help.

I DID IT!  I have won A Link to the Past! Very happy about that!

So I've won 6 zelda games now (OoS, OoA, ALBW, LA, PH and aLttP)

will continue with spirit tracks soon.  I'm about a quarter into it I think.

Playing through Majora's mask right now.
I can see why so many people like it so much. It's really fun ._.

The biggest thing about MM is that it's primarily side-quests, with only 4 temples, making the given Heart count a measly 7. Between the 13 hearts worth of pieces as well as all the masks, bottles, and other items (particularly the stray fairies) it can be a real challenge.

Thanks :D

I bought a Wii U last week (been playing lotsa Smash on it) and I downloaded the original Zelda on it, so I'll play that soon.  Also while I'm mentioning the Wii U, I pre-ordered Mario Maker.

I think I have 15 hearts right now, and one of the buffs I got gave me double defense, so I'm good there ._.
The bombers notebook in the 3DS version really helps with managing sidequests.

Nice! Look forward to the xenoblade, and the new Zelda that'll be coming out eventually of course >.<
Oh, tell me how Mario Maker is. That game seems quite interesting.

Yeah.  I don't usually get the Mario games cos I'm not very good, but making them (and making ones more my skill level) sounds fun.  I bought the bundle with the Classic Mario Amiibo and the artbook.  I got a good deal because amazon were offering a £10 code so atm it looks like I'm only paying £36 for it all.

Wow, that sounds like a pretty nice deal.
You should try out games even if you aren't very good at 'em. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a great platformer as well btw.
The worse you are at something the more you have to learn from it :o
You'll be happy you played a game if it initially wrecks you but you manage to overcome it later, at least in my experience.
Challenges are good.

Original Zelda has been won!  Now I'm up to 7 Zelda Games completed :)

I played it over the last four days... it took somewhere between 6 and 6 & a half hours over all to get through it.

Quick thoughts.  Overworld at the first stretch of the game is crueler than most dungeons.  Level 8 was a nightmare because Darknuts everywhere in rooms with fireball shooting statues and bubbles.  The bosses were actually quite easy, especially compared to everything else in this game.  There were mini-bosses much harder than the bosses.

I've essentially done all the Fallen timeline except Zelda 2 (LttP>OoS>OoA>LA>aLBW>LoZ>Z2AoL) (my only non Fallen timeline win is PHg.)

I'm considering picking up tWWHD.

I won the forest dungeon the other day though.
