I'm Twi, and I'm very pleased to introduce you all to this epic new forum.

Troop116rules


Like Captain Nerditude, I also tend to go deep into explanation or thought before having the decency to introduce myself. I'm Troop116rules, the awfully-named 3-year-old Neo-poster. I also go by NerdPorkArsonist (PS3 username) and Drakonas.

This, to me, shined as a Zelda game more than the last 14 years. (Wind Waker might be up there) I grew up with Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask (which was my favorite for the N64 to be honest), so I can say when Nintendo needed to pull something new out of their faces...or noses...or feet...eww..

And they delivered with Skyward Sword, indubitably. Flying... fresh dungeon ideas and new types of puzzles, innovative motion controls that actually worked, much more amazing character development, and....what??? The first time we've seen school in a Zelda game? Oh wait...Minish Cap... .. EVIL CATS!!!

Anyways, I loved the innovation Nintendo brought to the table with this title. The upcoming Link to the Past for 3DS looks interesting, too. And Iwata and Miyamoto actually stated that they are looking for completely different things they can do to innovate Zelda. They stated they considered things like non-linear dungeon order!

Even though I play games from many different consoles, I still can say one thing. Nintendo knows how to innovate. (I'm disregarding the Virtual Boy, thank you very much) They were the first to successfully pull off a mass-produced Touch screen gaming device with major developer and publisher support. (PDAs and mobile phones didn't have this support at the time) And even though each major gaming company integrated motion control, I'm sorry Sony and Microsoft, but Nintendo had it first. And I'm not talking about the Wii. Think 20 years earlier. Duck Hunt anyone? (Disregarding the power glove... it didn't work... see AVGN's video on NES accessories WARNING: Not safe for work)

Anyways, I think Nintendo has a chance at being a game-changer over the other companies. Microsoft seems to not give a rats...gluteus maximus (or minimus) about its customers. Well, Sony doesn't either for that matter. Sony also is in quite a bit of a money problem...while Microsoft doesn't know what to do with its money. Precisely why I facepalmed when Microsoft came into the gaming business. The XboxOne is a prime example of how much Microsoft cares about you. (By the ways, don't blame Bill Gates... he had no control over the decisions in his company. The board does, and Gates left the company after 7 was released. The result? Windows 8! And boy, was it a fail. I'm telling you, Bill's a genius. (Bill Gates, the Knowledge Base! BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL! ... Ok nostalgia parody over...) IMPORTANT EDIT*: )

Also...he was on vacation during Vista's development. I wonder why it had issues.

Anyways, Nintendo seems to be the only one doing what Sega should be doing: releasing old titles and sequels, albeit some of them suck. But as of late they've been quite awesome. Donkey Kong Country Returns was a pretty good ode to the original, to say the least.


Well, now that this planned 5-minute post turned out to become a 2-hour long distraction extravaganza...I'm going to bed... Where's my phone...I want Drum & Bass...

Hi there Captain Nerditude. It feels as though we have met before. Oh wait we have.

Likewise. It took me two, maybe three, years before I realized that I never properly introduced myself in the Loungin' forum. Easy to forget, yes.

Captain Nerditude


Hey, I'm Captain Nerditude! I always forget to introduce myself before I start writing! I absolutely love the entire Zelda series (except for Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks ) and I've been gaming Nintendo style all my life! It's lovely to see all these other Zelda lovers here!

Haha, that note challenge proved to be very aggrivating as well. I had no clue how to get the note inside that lilly pad, until about 8 frustrating hours later, when I jumped on top of it from the tree, having no other last resorts.

Yes, they were rather odd and creepy! That just added more flavor to the whole Silent Realm environment.
I was refering to the noises in the rest of the game...sorry I wasn't more precise haha.

One thing that took me awhile to do was the bloody note fish challenge thing...collecting all the small notes in the flooded woods...grrrr

I enjoyed the Silent Realms, I thought they were a good addition. Good storyline but some of the noises and animations were kinda odd and creepy though haha

Loved this game. Silent realms were a bit of a pain and the game was a bit too easy but overall best game ever. The story is absolutely brilliant. I really got into the game after the 3rd temple. Hopefully the next game will be even better.
