I do not like Light Tears and Phans.
I do not like them, Link-I-Am

Not in the dark.
Or with a spark.
Or as a ball.
Or in a hall.
I will not hunt them in a town,
I will not hunt them for the crown.
I will not hunt them on a bird.
I will not hunt them in my herd.
I will not hunt them as a dog.
I will not hunt them in the fog.

I do not like Light Tears and Phans!
I do not like them Link-I-Am!

This week we start the show off with a 30 minute dive into the 15 minute Super Mario Maker 2 Nintendo Direct. Following that, we have a nearly two-and-a-half-hour RetroActive on The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. We talk about everything. Some of it even in rhyme.

Thanks to everyone who has participated. Democracy failed RetroActive again. This is your fault.

You can apologize by sending us an email.

I actually edited it (forgot to update the credits). I don't know if I have the alternate theme.

I very much enjoyed the Retroactive. Im glad one of my comments was read on the show.
I didn't quite manage to finish the game before the episode. Im almost up to the sand temple.

So I think the dungeons in this game were pretty good - maybe a bit too straightforward for my liking, but still pretty solid across the board.  However, I think the Sand Temple was a stand-out and really enjoyed it.  Keep going - you are in for a treat!

The story behind the train is allegedly that Aonuma's kid liked trains so he forced trains into Zelda. When players tried to just speed through the train parts Aonuma made the train slower to force people to appreciate it.

Yeah, reeeeaaaal fun to be on a train, play a game to pass the time while it goes somewhere and have your game make you wait for your train to go somewhere...

Now I wonder if there's a ROM hack that replaces the train with instant teleportation and how that changes the way players approach the game...
