Yes. Hyrule Warriors Link and Zelda have spectacular designs.

I'd almost forgotten them.

And Toon Zelda looks good as well. I've stated many times I'd like to see that look on an older version, but she and Tetra seem to be somewhat separate from the other Zeldas, probably because they are the youngest after OOT Child Zelda.

Well, they're only twelve. I mean, that's a fact.

I wondered about it for years, and even tried to Fan Wank that they might be older and the art style makes them look young, but the two Hyrule Books give the ages of Toon Link and Zelda as Twelve...

...in Wind Waker. They could be older in Phantom Hourglass and just look like they're still 12, and no exact ages are giving for Spirit Tracks Link and Zelda.

My favourite Zelda is Twilight Princess.

I love that sharp and regal look.

Hyrule Warriors Zelda is also great.

Even if it's not a mainline game, having fully playable Zelda is a delight.

[up][up]That would make them older than Ocarina of Time Zelda and Young Link.

PSA: The Link's Awakening Remake Special Edition is up for purchase again; you can pre-order at Smyths (but not GameStop apparently). I've got one ordered; would anybody be interested in an unboxing video?

Dude... you ever notice that, like, stuff, man?

Who are your favorite minor Zelda characters? I really like Maple the witch from the Oracle games.

You don't often see enemies from one Nintendo franchise show up in another, though in Kid Icarus you fought Komaytos, which are just Metroids, and in Wario Land 2 the Togemen look just like Motos from Metroid 2.

True. I think Bob-ombs were around as enemies in The Minish Cap, and that was a GBA game.

On the one hand, not waiting for a download on release is nice, but on the other hand having to wait a month to actually play it is kind of annoying.

On the gripping hand, I bought it anyway in spite of that. tongue

So yeah, starting up BOTW again after an absence and I just found out a cache of like 3-4 chests behind a waterfall in the icy peak area of the Great Plateau.....

This is my fifth time through the game, why hadn't I noticed this?!

Like with any great piece of art, you discover something new every time you look at it.

Yeah, in general it doesn't hurt to check behind waterfalls, whether you can get there via a tunnel (like with that GP one, or the one at the bottom of the "T" of the Lanayru Promenade where you can find a shrine) or have to swim through the waterfall itself.

You can, by the way, look behind waterfalls with the help of Cryonis. Make a horizontal block sticking out of the waterfall and move to the back edge, then use the camera view control to see the cliff behind the water.

There are several waterfalls where you can climb the cliff face behind them, totally dry. Some waterfalls have hidden treasure chests.

IIRC the waterfall at Hebra Plunge has enough clearance that you can create Cryonis blocks on the inside of the fall.

Current obsessions: fountain pens and piano repair. Mention them at your peril.
