Speaking of Virtual Console, weren't one of you looking for a Wii-compatible SNES controller to play ALttP with?: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/ee14/

I think that was me. I ended up getting a Classic Pro controller instead. It works great for LttP. ;)

Bought a Wii Points card today with some of my paycheck, and I intend on getting Majora's Mask over the weekend and seeing how much I progress.

Hopefully you played MM before, because it is a lot different than OoT and requires more patience to first playthrough than OoT. But you probably played it before, so you know what to expect. ;)

Well, OoT was the first 3D Zelda game, so some of the stuff in the game is unorignal. I thought the first three kid dungeons were fine and creative enough. The temple names were pretty unoriginal, but they were following some sort of template when they made those dungeon names though. MM is also guilty of this by having "_____ Temple" as the name of every dungeon.

It wasn't until TP when they moved away from calling every dungeon a "Temple" and they started using more unique places as dungeons. Like Snowpeak Ruins and Arbiter's Grounds were original names and designs for a dungeon. I have heard good things about the Ancient Cistern dungeon also in SS.

She is a pain in the ass. I wouldn't have mind her character that much if it wasn't for the whole Jabu-Jabu Belly chore with lugging her around. It wouldn't have been so bad if she didn't get mad at you for leaving her every five minutes.. I think characters like Mido and Tingle are definitely worst though. Tingle is so bad that they had to make a spinoff game based on him. :roll:

The worst part was Ruto would complain about you leaving her everytime you went into a different room. That got old really fast, and it didn't help that Jabu Jabu's Belly was way too confusing to get through. Tingle and Mido sucked too, but I thought Ruto was the worst. The only positive thing I can say about the Jabu Jabu ordeal, is that I accidentally went into the mini boss (barf) room and got rid of Ruto too early. I had to use cheats to get the boomerang because I couldn't access one of the rooms that featured it. This happened on my most recent playthrough this summer. If it's any consolation, at least I ditched Ruto sooner and didn't have to carry her around everywhere.

She annoyed the crap out of me when I first played the game. At the end of the level, I'm like "Great, I have to MARRY this bitch now? Gimme a break..."

For some reason, all the girls in the game had to have some kind of interest in Link. I mean we had Zelda, Saria, Ruto, Malon, and even Nabooru. Although in Nabooru's case, it was not on the same level as the ones above.

But the only real ones that make sense to me is Saria and Zelda. Saria was a childhood friend that Link grew up with and she was the only one that actually cared for Link and didn't shun him like the other Kokiris. She was also the only one to understand Link's true self. Likewise, Zelda and Link were the ones that saved Hyrule together. They went through a lot, so it would make sense for them to have feelings for each other. I don't see how either Malon or Ruto could have any liking in Link when they hardly interact with him like the above two.

At least MM cut down on the whole relationship aspect. I mean you didn't see the Deku Princess or Lulu slobbering over Link. Although MM gave us Tingle. What the hell Nintendo? Why would you make a 35 year old man that dresses as a fairy? No wonder his father disowns him. :roll:

Yeah, Tingle was lame. The most annoying part was when he kept repeating the same speech over and over again. I know it was because of going back in time a lot, but it was still too much. Oh well, at least we got inexpensive maps from him. And I totally agree with your above post. Saria and Zelda made the best sense for Link's love interest than any other character. As for the Deku Princess.... man that interaction/obsession would be creepy. :shock:

Funny, I have the urge to play OoT over again too. Maybe I will do that over Thanksgiving Break next week? I would try MM again too, but that game would take longer than a week for me. ;)

I've finally got through Snowhead. Once I get the upgraded sword, it will be Romani Ranch and then Zora Cape and then my least favorite Temple ever.

I might play OOT or MM again, but since I have a new laptop, I'll have to download Project 64 again. It might a little longer before I replay though, since I just got done with both games as recently as a few months ago.

I actually hate the Snowhead part of MM the most. I just hate everything about it from the characters to Goron Link. The temple sucked too and Goron Link was my least favorite transformation. Although Goht is a fun boss and I do enjoy the concept of the boss battle. But good luck with Great Bay Temple. I can't imagine going through that temple again. But one of my favorite parts of Great Bay is the Pirate's Hideout.  :mrred:
