[color=#000000ost_uid0]er..

Okay, so I know this place is populated w/ more than a few (okay, maybe just a few) Zelda fans -- so why not have a Wind Waker thread? Huh?

..

Yeah, so if you don't have it buy it. I wish I were playing it now (but alas, my eyes hurt and.. well I'm still staring at a screen. Damn.)[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]The only one I've played was the original, for the "classic" NES.

You just can't beat the theme song to the original Zelda! Not to mention the shiny gold case![/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]May 3rd, May 3rd, May 3rd......

On a related note though, the Zelda site I've been working on went up on Monday. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I have to agree. The original gold cased [iost_uid0]Legend of Zelda[/iost_uid0] for the NES was superb. I still play it from time to time.

[iost_uid0]Legend of Zelda II[/iost_uid0] (silver cased) was also good, but I prefer the first more.

I never had a console system other than the original NES, so I can't speak of the other Zeldas.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Zelda? Oh, that's that one that's like a really poorly done rip-off of Final Fantasy, right?

[color=#000000ost_uid0]All I've played is Ocarina of Time, Majora's mask, both Oracles, and Link's Awakining. And I have an emulator for Zelda 1 on my PC. But you didn't hear that from me.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]You all need to find and kill someone with a copy of Link to the Past. Except not me. It's not only the best Zelda game, but one of the best SNES games ever. I still remember fondly the time I got through the damn Turtle Rock dungeon...[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]It's all about the classic NES! Although I'm still trying to figure out a way to shoot that damned dog in Duck Hunt....[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I remember finally figuring out that "push the block onto the switch" puzzle in, what was it, the ice palace...

I can run through that whole game in a matter of hours. Booyeah!

I like the credits on Zelda: ALTP, even.

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I have to wait another 24 hours to get 4 Swords/LttP, too.

Why does everything come out over here too late?[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Simple: Take the gun, and point it at a white surface.

Why? (If you don't know...) The gun for Duck Hunt was extremely primative; it could only detect vast contrasts in colors -- like black and white. So when the trigger is pulled, for a split second everything on the screen becomes either black or white. If you hit white, you score -- no matter what.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]lol, most people know that. However, the dog is not programmed to be shot, so no matter how hard you try, you cannot kill the dog.

No matter how much he laughs at you...[/colorost_uid0]
