I just show up, read the script, and check my email for Neal firing me.

Most of them are facts. The dungeons did only know you had a single item. They did craft dungeons in a way that meant once it was done you never needed an item again. It was made simpler by a lack of direct progression. It didn't ask you to combine skills.

Some might argue it allowed them to be more creative with the uses for an item. Either way, dungeons in Zelda rarely ever have you combining skills and often it's in the worst way possible (like Twilight Princess' mixture of iron boots and claw shots). But that's just my opinion.

Just be thankful you put your opinions on a podcast that isn't treated like the word of God- you avoid death threats, as opposed to the content on the site.

True some are facts but your enjoyment of the game due to those facts is opinion. I enjoyed the game and didn't mind these things and even enjoyed them.


Is like Symphony of the Night. I prefer the old school games and can give you facts. The Metroid style gameplay made it easier. You mostly used swords vs your whip. Sub items became less important. You could get lost and experience much less tense action vs the older games.


That doesn't mean it's a lesser game it just means my opinion of it is different from others due to those facts. Others view those facts as positives.

I love interesting conversations and nothing ignites that more that two different opinions. I also love that James is cool with people countering his opinions and not acting like oh my word is stone get out of my site. I’ve been on websites where if you question anything the creaters will stone you and even block you.

Funnily enough, I realized the parallels this discussion had with the previous episode where James Jones tried to defend Xenoblade Chronicles as Dr. Metts and Guillame smacked it about. Here, James tried to smack Star Fox Zero while Guillame and Greg defended it.

James Jones always gets bullied. Sorry, James.

Remember in episode 159 when you said… Nah just kidding. : )
 
Honestly since you’ve taken over I feel you’ve done an amazing job and I listen every week. This is coming from someone that was at times critical of you James but I admit you really are a great host and I appreciate the work you guys put in weekly.
