Nintendo Gaming / Ocarina of Time: Master Quest

Please post in the existing thread below.

Nintendo Gaming / Correct Chronological Order for Legend of Zelda???
« on: February 11, 2003, 11:59:53 AM »
Hero of Time's is pretty much the same as what I go with.  Again, the only difference is that Four Swords and the Oracle games don't really seem to have any strong connection to other games to place them in a time line.

Nintendo Gaming / Bonus Dicscs out already?!

Plenty of places to talk about this already.  You can continue this conversation in Talkback.

Nintendo Gaming / Zelda problem????

It is an intentional effect, although I must say it's one of the more baffling features of the game.  The game pauses for a second every time you kill an enemy.  When you slash through 5 enemies with one swipe, it makes it look like the game is freezing up.  Very odd, but intentional nonetheless.

Kulock, please stop acting like we purposely went out of our way to get rid of avatars and kill everyone's fun.  The software does not support off-site avatars, and on-site avatars are simply not an option. That's really where it ends. The other things are just side issues.

Considering that this thread no longer has any cohesive topic, I'm locking it up.

Bandwidth for avatars is obviously external

I know that people are talking about avatars just about everywhere so you've apparently missed the main reason for excluding them.  This software was not designed with off-site avatars in mind, and hosting avatars was what hogged our bandwidth and forced us to use ezBoard in the first place.  There is a chance Rick could go in and re-tool some of the code to allow externally hosted avatars, but it's not a priority since there are still a number of things we have to watch out for: bandwidth theft, file size, questionable images etc.

Podcast Discussion / Radio Trivia Scoreboard 'Lite' February 7, 2003
« on: February 07, 2003, 09:05:02 PM »
The first TYP/Bloodworth co-host went fairly well despite TYP getting lost in traffic, technical difficulties, and THE NEVER ENDING TIE.  Score-keeping was also a challenge since we were both on the same system, so unfortunately this is one of the poorest scoreboards I've ever posted.  Still it was a lot of fun having the whole Mario cast to banter with.

3 points (After 8 tie-breakers, mudskip just decided to call it a night.)



1. Luigi's Mansion (GC)
2. Sparkster (SNES)
3. Virtual Boy Wario Land (VB)
Halftime: Zeruda no Densetsu: Kaze no Takuto
4. Startropics (NES)
5. Uniracers

8 TIE BREAKERS (Way too many to keep track of, sorry. )

Nintendo Gaming / Correct Chronological Order for Legend of Zelda???

What the last guy said is pretty accurate.  Nintendo's recently said that it's a new Link in every game. However I would go along with the original post's time-line the way the stories have been presented over the years.  The only thing that's shakey is the placement of the Oracle games since there's no telling when they or The Four Swords take place.  The others are pretty clear, but again it's kind of a fruitless endeavor to try to weave all of their stories together.

Thanks Perm, you just gave us another example of why we're not hot on bringing back avatars.

NWR Feedback / Could we get a "Buy/Sell/Trade" board?

Just so no one gets the bright idea in your head, we will take action if we get reports of any users soliciting through the private message system as well.

NWR Feedback / The Changes I LIKE about the new boards!
« on: February 07, 2003, 07:31:03 AM »
Thanks! As far as the post-counter and custom titles tied to posts are concerned, those are features that Rick purposely disabled for the very reasons you mentioned.  There are also a lot of great features that this board has that people won't be seeing unless they play around.  Some examples are the on-board private messages, buddy lists, and the quote button.  

There are some slick extra functions for our moderators too. One of the more convenient ones is the ability to notify users when a thread is moved.  I can't tell you how much grief that will save everyone.  It was always frustrating to have people complain about us "deleting" their threads when they were simply moved to a more appropriate area.

It was directed at several people, not just you. -And I did notice that you were joking after I posted.

This is a very clear example of what we consider a poll.  Locking...

Whatabout the overall feel of the game?

I'm going to hold back overall on this because not being able to read the story does alter the way a game feels.  However, there are a lot of great little additions like the way the music interacts with battles.  The beautifully detailed animation also gives you the impression of being in a world that's much more alive.


Does it feel better to go on  Hyrule Field the first time or on the ocean the first time.

Hyrule field, simply because it was seeing familiar territory in 3D for the first time.  Of course there are also places in Wind Waker that provide the same effect, but not really the ocean itself.


Is the ending as good as others?

Again without the text, there may have been something I've missed, but I thought the ending was very cool even if it didn't answer all my questions.


And are there A LOT of other sub quests?  and are they any big (like bigger than the Lon lon ranch one?)

Seem to be, but sub-quests also tend to rely more on doing what people ask of you.  I was still missing half a row of hearts.  Treasure hunting can be fun and tedious at the same time depending on how you go about it. However there were a lot of little nooks and crannys on islands that I'm sure I didn't have to do to beat the game...depends on how you look at it I guess.

It's a matter of overstepping your authority.  If you think someone should be banned, you don't take a poll (which is also against the rules) to see who else wants him banned.  Instead, you click the little button that says "Report this to a Moderator".

Well, if you'd beaten the game with 100% items, there's no way you couldn't know there was a sequel coming.

Can you set things up so that when readers want to discuss a news item it doesn't just go into the "Talk back" forum? I think it would be better if the threads were in the proper forums: gameboy news would go into the gameboy forum, gamecube news would go into the gamecube forum, and so forth.

Actually, you're not the first one to suggest this, but I do think it's better to have all of the news in one discussion area. - And remember not everything falls neatly into a category which makes things much more complicated when you're talking about setting up an automated system.

Goodness!! The quote function in these forums is slick.

What if, by some strange move by Nintendo, the GB Player and its boot disc are region free? Could we then conceivably use the disc to play software from other regions?

Not sure what you mean by that.  GB games are already region-free. The only region incompatibility at all would be with the boot disc. I doubt that Nintendo would make the disc region free, but there's always hoping I guess.

HAH HAH!! I was wondering about that myself earlier today.  I'll see if I can bug Rick or Billy about being a little more specific.

Actually, if you want to squeeze the imprisoning war into the stories of the games since, it probably happened while Link was sealed away in the sacred realm in OoT.  The story was changed so that the Master Sword was forged before Ganon arrived, but other than that, it's pretty close - and it shows that Ganon won the war for a period until Link came to full age.

Who wants Mojo to get banned?  Just curious.

Asking questions like that is probably the easiest way for you to get banned.  Don't be so quick to throw stones.

Some of you are acting like we've already offered you a job.  We're accepting applications.  Although we'll be glad to answer general questions, if you're interested you should simply send us your complete application, and if you meet the requirements you will be contacted.

Oh and the word volunteer should have clued you in that this is not a paid position.  None of us get paid.

Just beat it!!! Whee! OK, there is a section that some people might find a little tedious near the end (although I enjoyed it), however the final battle and the ending are awesome.  To me it seems a bit on the easy side, but I can't say for sure since difficulty is sometimes different between JPN and US versions.  I will say though that there is also a little something special for those that make it to the end.
