I thought we should have a thread to discuss the Legend of Zelda games, especially with Skyward Sword so close!

And Ocarina of Time 3D makes this easier, as the Hookshot's laser dot changes when it lands on a grapple point.



    There's a lot of good in that 3DS version though. Personally I like the gyroscope controls a lot. After I use the circle pad to line up my shot with say the slingshot, I can use the motion controls to fine tune it or catch up quickly with an enemy who's decided to skedaddle at the last minute.

    Then there's the 3D, which I think is lovely, bar the one bit at the entrance to Zora's domain which makes me go cross-eyed.

    The hand-holding didn't annoy me a lot cos I didn't play the original enough to notice, bar the obvious Shiekah Stone thingy, which I was free to ignore. I remembered Navi was annoying, but that was it, so all her extra hints and tips were unnoticed by me.

    I was actually showing someone how the gyro controls worked in the Fire Temple, heard flapping, swiveled around and took out a Keese on pure, unbridled instinct. I tell ya, that felt good.

  • Gyro controls + Swiveling rocking chair=awesomeness.

    I will confirm that the Official 25th Anniversary Album that comes with the Skyward Sword bundle is very good indeed.

  • I want it more than the game, at times.

    The game is sitting until Christmas, when I can play it nonstop.

    Yep, I can agree with this for the most part. My only issue with it is that aiming with the circle pad is too slow, so if your shot isn't already nearly lined up, aiming can be a little annoying. But for the first part, I could see speed run times drop significantly for this version of the game.

    Then there's the 3D, which I think is lovely, bar the one bit at the entrance to Zora's domain which makes me go cross-eyed.

    Honestly, it all makes me go cross-eyed. I try it every once in a while, but I almost always leave it off.

    I found using the gyroscope aiming made the horseback archery a heck of a lot easier.

    And I've also noticed that each person tends to react to the 3D effects differently. Some people are just fine with it all the way up, some people can't have it on without getting a headache.
