  • The Breath of the Wild engine took years to make - why not make a sequel? Companies often seem to abandon their engines and move on to the next thing after one or two games... they take forever to make; why not use them to their full potential? The chemistry and physics systems in BotW were awesome. Perhaps it's just me wanting Nintendo to replicate what they did with Majora's Mask for every new Zelda game... but this would be a great game to build a sequel off of.

  • Quote from Wildecastor: “The apparent amount of time passed really bothers me, and I never want to see a time skip like that ever again in LoZ. It's repeated uncomfortably often, and it raises far more questions than it gives answers. ” Quote from Evran_Speer: “Personally, I think leaving the amount of time vague would have been a better choice. That would have given the player (and the theorist) leeway to estimate how long it had been. ” Raising questions was what the developers definitely want…

  • Quote from lord-of-shadow: “- Ability to summon a horse. I basically never used horses in this game because the logistics of keeping one near enough to hear the whistle were annoying. ” It's not terribly inconvenient when you have shrines you can warp to near stables. Though, didn't they kind of fix this anyway with the Master Cycle? Quote from lord-of-shadow: “- If I was a designer on the game, I'd have made a potion that reduces or removes slipping in rain. Nice resource sink, and would mitiga…

  • There are 13 shrines in the Hebra region?? That's more than any of the other regions. I've only beaten the main quest so that's definitely a surprise to me. It's probably the one area of the game I've explored the least.

  • I don't see watching television, or a movie, is any different from reading a book, or even playing a video game. Of course the quality of the medium and how much thought it provokes is important - and the stereotype of television is that often it does not. But it's not the medium that is at fault, it is the content. You have to define the medium as well - is television simply moving pictures on a flat screen with noise? Books have been around for hundreds of years. In comparison, television is a…

  • Quote from Winnie: “@Jimin I’m 5 ft tall! Anywhere from 100-120 is fine for people my height, but I feel pudgy being anywhere over 115. The only place for the weight to go is horizontal! ” Are you Hayden Panettiere ? Edit: lol zeldauniverse.net/forums/Attac…225a1262135987f273893f964

  • I have heard the opposite in fact, that "gay" is now a term of endearment. It makes me feel very old to know how much language has changed even in my lifetime.

  • Quote from GamerKitty205: “When people (like my classmates) don't respect LGBTQ+ people and constantly use Gay as an insult. Every day. Every. Single. Freaking. Day. ” How old are you/your classmates? Is this a thing among the younger generation?

  • @Aurelia I LIFTED MORE WEIGHTS I am trying to get to 1000 lbs total in three separate lifts - the bench press, deadlift, and squat. After a test run last Sunday I reached 955lbs, which involved 405lbs deadlift, 315lbs squat, and 235lbs bench. I don't think I'll be winning any strength competitions but I'm hoping to hit 1000lbs in about three months...

  • I had a major nitpick with the game's story - spoilers ahead! (Hidden Content)

  • 10 i cheeter Quote from Axius27: “3 In December 2009, I was visiting family on Vancouver Island, and I wanted to buy a DSi. Young me had saved up enough money to buy it, but only in Canada due to their $130 price decrease (*grumble* *grumble* Import fees *grumble*). My Dad, however, didn't want to just walk into a store and buy one, as it would cost ALL my money. So instead, he spoke to a friend of his who worked at Walmart, and he agreed to use his employee discount to go buy it. While he did t…

  • Quote from Cody: “Quote from Lanayru_: “How do I change my username? ” You can change your own username on this page zeldauniverse.net/forums/AccountManagement/ ” Thanks! I think I remember when you had to get a mod to help you do this?

  • How do I change my username?

  • Quote from Skywing: “Unfortunately in September my dad, whose health had been going downhill for a while, was taken into hospital, and was diagnosed with cancer, and passed away in November. So naturally fitness training took a back seat for quite a while. ” I'm sorry to hear about your dad @Bill and I took up cycling for a while back around 2010 (lol we're old) and wound up cycling across the state one day. I remember that's when I first really started to enjoy fitness.

  • I played Link's Awakening on the Game Boy, borrowing it from my neighbor next door. I remember not having any idea what to do, at all. I don't think I liked it that much. When I played A Link to the Past for the first time I was a bit older, and that game I actually beat after a few years. Ocarina of Time was a game I got for Christmas in the third or fourth grade and was one of my favorites. Majora's Mask I got for my 12th birthday Wind Waker I pre ordered and enjoyed in middle school. I was of…

  • Quote from ScarlyCrow: “Quote from Lanayru_: “And everyone loves a good regex, even if they're regex-ted by developers. I use regex in scripting quite a bit. ” Show me your ugliest regular expression, hahaha. ” I think today I wrote one that was something like '\A[c,e,w,v,n,z,t,q]?[0-9]\z' ... A nice regex is a work of art but this one looked like a dead worm on pavement.

  • Quote from ScarlyCrow: “Quote from Lanayru_: “Some weird languages I've come across in my IT career have been Korn shell, COBOL, and Lotus Script. Anyone else work with any obscure crap? ” Hahaha, I don't know, does Lua count as obscure? I once wrote a parser that converted Lua into some proprietary programming language that I no longer remember the name of. So... It's a little weird because I didn't actually write Lua... I just sort of unwrote it, hahaha. Anyone here work with regular expressio…

  • Quote from Keyaki: “I've heard of KOBOL but all I know is that it's incredibly old. What's Powershell? Another IDE? ” Grace Hopper invented what would eventually become COBOL. She died in '94 and was 85 at the time, so very old language lol Powershell is basically shell scripting for Windows system administrators. I find it very easy to manage anything from file systems and shares, pull security and application log data, manage user security, and about 1000 other things. Additionally a lot of ra…

  • IIRC C++ worked with the OpenGL library, so I used it a lot during school to code 3D models and small computer games. I mostly "code" in Powershell now because it enables me to configure things more easily and document them exactly, which works when you have to do things in a business environment. I have worked with Python but don't use it for anything. I might if I did anything cool at my job. Some weird languages I've come across in my IT career have been Korn shell, COBOL, and Lotus Script. A…

  • Quote from Violetlight: “I'm a huge fan of The Hobbit (the original book, not the stretched out movies that couldn't even get Smaug's leg count right) and the LOTR trilogy, but I just can't get into the books that read more like encyclopedias than proper narratives. I know that's because the Silmarillion et. al. aren't proper narratives, they're more like Tolkien's world-building notes, but meh. I guess to the really, really big fans, they're better than nothing. I'm not planning on reading the …

  • Quote from Galedeep: “Infinity War is...fine. (Hidden Content) ” I was literally expecting a popcorn movie where I could turn my brain off. I think there's a very different "thing" the Marvel Studios creations are going for. A great comparison is to that of the Dark Knight Nolan trilogy. The latter was much more grounded in its action as each scene, though definitely crafted at times to satisfy your craving for action (they were superhero movies after all), were not the meat of the movie. That t…

  • Quote from Darth_Phoenix: “A podcast I listened to pointed out that if you take the Canto Blight stuff out you have the exact same plot no matter what. It feels like they just needed something for Finn to do. ” Quote from LeoBravo: “If you take the Canto Bight stuff out, where does DJ come from? ” I wouldn't say the scene was pointless, just needlessly drawn out.

  • I'm looking at Serious Discussion now, and even thinking back to how it was back then... I honestly have an appreciation for people I even disagree with. You can have a passionate opinion about something, but there's something about a forum that fosters an inclination towards more substantial thought that a post on Facebook doesn't have. I remember when I first started using Facebook after falling out of my use of Zelda Universe, the closure of my own gaming forum, and my long absence from forum…

  • Overall this trilogy has a lot more personality going for it than the prequels did. That being said, I think some comments are accurate regarding characters like Rose who felt bolted on to the story (and it sounds like she was). Overall I enjoyed the movie immensely, but the interlude in the middle when Rose and Finn go to the casino planet being a low point is something I can agree with. With the movie as long as it was, it seemed to have some extra weight in certain areas. Luke's torment and b…

  • Quote from Aurelia: “Quote from Lanayru_: “Quote from Aurelia: “I was able to squat up to 325. ...hip thrusts. I first started out with 100... Now I am currently at 430... ” Holy $#!@. Are you male or female? Impressive either way. ” I am female. I don’t know why, but lifting that much just makes me happy lol ” But... 325... ._.

  • I have watched the CD-i games, both through videos by the Angry Video Game Nerd and Game Grumps... I have seen enough. The cutscenes are funny, but playing through the games would likely be more boring and tedious than having to transpose the bible into handwriting on toilet paper. I have no desire to pay them, either in this life or somewhere else in the multiverse. In fact - the very idea that I could be sitting down with a CD-i controller in my hand playing these games with @Bill in an altern…

  • I drive a 2014 Subaru Outback. I don't think I'll buy a new car again outright. I have learned some things about buying cars. - You get what you pay for, mostly. - Blue Book is a good resource for researching the reliability and lasting value of your vehicle, which is important if you're buying brand new. - Don't waste money on add ons or special features unless you really feel like you will use them on a regular basis. Dealers will also try and sell you insurance packages for random garbage - r…

  • Quote from Wildecastor: “Every Friday evening on the NPR radio station, they play extremely weird music. Tonight, it was some guy reading from something Oscar Wilde wrote while a piano played, and it slowly devolved into him running around, moaning and screaming, and squeezing a rubber ducky or some other squeaky toy. A few Fridays ago, it seemed to be some people standing around saying "Mmmmmmmhh wheeeeeeeeeeerrrreeeeeeerrrrrr" and saying math problems out loud, and of course more moaning. I th…

  • @Captain Cornflake I remember you being a cool guy and having a large following here. Are you still cool? I think at one point you helped me figure out how IRC worked and how to create my own channel.

  • Quote from Captain Crusader: “Quote from Lanayru_: “I have worked in IT for almost 8 years doing random stuff. I made my way out of highly compartmentalized job in the category of system administration in order to move on to cybersecurity. I constantly question all of my life choices and am always paranoid. It's a decent job. ” Just recently I landed in a similar boat. After undergrad in the hard sciences, then grad school in physics-turned-geology in order to graduate, I wound up finding IT wor…

  • I have worked in IT for almost 8 years doing random stuff. I made my way out of highly compartmentalized job in the category of system administration in order to move on to cybersecurity. I constantly question all of my life choices and am always paranoid. It's a decent job. Quote from Marjorie Haukea Williams: “I work volunteer for red cross, once a week and I also give back to charities monthly. I like helping people and want my paid work to give back too. I've only really had stint 6 month jo…

  • I have broadly worked in IT in some capacity for almost 8 years, but often been "siloed" into specific systems administration tasks. I've never really had the kind of job where you see a lot of PEBKAC-type stuff minus the year I spent on a help desk. I do love reading incidents though sometimes. I remember one in my most recent job asked for security footage for their store (I work in the retail industry) because some "stripers" [sic] were fighting and potentially damaged merchandise/stole money…

  • Breath of the Wild is such an expansive game. I don't think any other Zelda game required that you put so much time and effort into completing it 100%. I would put more emphasis on "time" though as the world is so huge it's possible to spend dozens of hours simply traversing it on foot. You've obviously decided to pick up the game and play it since you originally posted, but I think Breath of the Wild has lasting value beyond what is typical for a Zelda. I bought the game on two separate systems…

  • I think I joined this site in 2005. It was a pretty big part of my life after school and a frequent topic of discussion with me and my friend (now @Bill on these forums). Coming back here is a trip through time, angst, ignorance, and growth. I don't believe I ever really appreciated it as much as I should have. The webmasters throughout the years have done a fantastic job and so have the moderators of this forum for it to still be around today. I don't immediately remember a whole lot about most…

  • Recently the House of Representatives passed a bill titled H.R. 1406, Working Families Flexibility Act of 2013. This bill stands as a modification to the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, one of the oldest and most influential pieces of legislation that has shaped the current workplace in American society. The bill, being advocated with mostly Republican support, is facing opposition from labor activists, the AFL-CIO, along with many Democrats critical of the bill's intent and its potential affe…

  • I always figured that Gerudo culture was heavily polygamous. it was said in OoT that a male Gerudo was born every hundred years or something like that. In OoT, this most recently born man was Ganondorf. The impression I got from the game was that males typically were de facto leaders and husbands of the Gerudo tribe. If you remember Naburu (I forget how to spell her name) was particularly rebellious and resentful towards this obligation. It's entirely possible that other Gerudo were as well, whi…

  • With the release of every new Zelda, you tend to notice a lot of things that are carried over from the previous game in the series. With Skyward Sword, you definitely notice a lot of inherited bits of lore - everything is more tightly knitted together. Skyward Sword is also connected well with games like Ocarina of Time, but when games are developed over a decade apart from each other I think some things get more blurry. For that reason, and reasons already given in this thread, I feel that the …

  • A scary fact for Obama supporters... Tagg Romney owns a bunch of voting machines in Ohio. What would seemingly be innocuous in an ideal society, unfortunately, is not. JEzY2tnwExs This is a computer programmer testifying before congress regarding the 2000 elections. Note that programs that "fix" voting do so by flipping a close margin towards the candidate you want to win, and that this can be done in a way that isn't obvious. I would recommend watching the video for full details. Needless to sa…

  • I have the version of the game with it Haha! Sucks to be you! I actually do think the original version is better. I don't understand why it was taken out; I'm not sure how legitimate the "Muslim chanting" explanation is. I think it was probably taken out because it was just scary. I think the newer version is just empty and boring.
