  • Is today one of the best Zelda days in your life now? Haha

    Posted by HeroOfTime5

    • Hahah
      Yeah. It kinda is. I'm excited as hell. Though there's some trepidation, too, in case they fuck it up. I don't love the art style for instance.

      Posted by Max N.

    • I understand the concern. The anime opening was such a tease!

      Did you feel the same way when TWW came out?

      Posted by HeroOfTime5

    • I did! But I got over it within hours. I was also, like, 12. I understand a lot more about how and why I feel about different art styles now. I explain more here: zeldauniverse.net/forums/Threa…ostID=6330129#post6330129

    • Well written! As a kid there was so much awe and wonder in the concept art from LA and ALttP. It almost conveyed a vintage and medieval like vibe to it.

      I will agree it will feel different but it seems similar to the photographs from the DX version:

      Perhaps this is what LA was supposed to be back then?

  • Now that that remaster of the first Onimusha is out I'm seeing your old avatar everywhere, which I previously knew *only* as your avatar, and it's disconcerting. :P

    Posted by John

    • Hahah, nice. I only recently learned what it was from myself. But I haven't seen it around for that remaster yet. It will throw me for a loop I'm sure.

      Posted by Max N.

    • Literally all I knew about Onimusha until, like, last week was that the 3rd one had the samurai protagonist swapping times with a modern-day French cop played by Jean Reno.

      Posted by John

    • WHAT. That is so much more over-the-top crazy than I ever imagined from that series.

      Posted by Max N.

    • Yeah, that was roughly my reaction to "Demon army from fictional Nobunaga-era Japan ends up in modern-day France" as a concept.

    • I also saw you on the Switch e-shop

  • I know you disnt care for it but I’m hyped as heck to play DQ11

    Posted by JP the Neurotic

    • I do think that there are certain types of players who love it. I just wasn't one of them!

      Posted by Max N.

    • It's got a really nice, really comfortable classic JRPG feel. High budget JRPG the game. That's all some people want.

      Posted by Max N.

    • I totally understand that but fuck that is exactly what o want . Haha

      Posted by JP the Neurotic

  • I’d just like to reiterate you’re a pretty cool guy

    Posted by JP the Neurotic

  • are you the lord of shadow I think Gabriel elmont killed them all

    Posted by JP the Neurotic

  • Guess who’s playing destiny 2

    Posted by JP the Neurotic

    • Yesss. I myself haven't played Forsaken since december, and it's VERY different now, so I'm basically enjoying it with totally fresh eyes. It's a nice change of pace.

      Posted by Max N.

    • I’m only playing it because it was free on ps plus LOL though I am having fun can’t complsin with free :p

      Posted by JP the Neurotic

    • Sooo I ended up deleting destiny 2. I just ended up losing interest really fast . I
      Do think the gameplay itself isn’t bad but well random thoughts Haha

      Posted by JP the Neurotic

    • It happens! No game is for everyone.

      Out of curiosity, do you play any other games in these categories?:
      A: Console FPSs
      B: Loot chase games (Diablo, Borderlands, etc)
      C: MMOs

      Posted by Max N.

    • Definitely play FPS played a ton of borderlands and diablo as well as dipped my toes in path of exile

      Mmos not so much . Tried WoW various times bu lost interest though I did end up loving ff14 a realm reborn

  • were you in an RP group wayyy back when social groups were a thing?

    i remember being a part of one circa 2008 and your name (Max Nichols) is ringing hella bells for it. unfortunately, i cannot remember the name of the group anymore >>

    Posted by goronmario

    • I don't think I ever did any RP at Zelda Universe. I was SUPER active at the old Realms of Hyrule forum RPG circa 2003-2006, but that's probably not it! Is it possible you're just remembering me from around the ZU forum in general?

      Posted by Max N.

    • Maybe! I definitely remember you being around but for some reason I've associated you with that group xD

      Posted by goronmario

  • Just wanna say you’re pretty cool dude

    Posted by JP the Neurotic

    • Why thank you! I appreciate it! And I think I can guess what made you decide to post this... which means you're pretty cool, too.

      Posted by Max N.

      Posted by Max N.

  • i havent seen you in literally forever

    Posted by goronmario

    • That about how long it's been since I've been around, yeah :P

  • is this the wall of popular zelda article writer Mirren

    Posted by Cody

    • Yes, this is Mirren. Put me down for five articles next month. They'll be great and definitely on time, I stake my reputation on it.

      Posted by Max N.

  • Are you gonna vote in the Zelda awards? I nominated you for biggest purist.

    Posted by The Wizard of LoZ

  • Hey, thanks for accepting my friend request. :)

    So when you say you're a purist, how extreme are we talking? I'd like to think I'm somewhat of a purist myself since I believe the first three Zelda games are the best in the series, and everything went downhill with the release of OoT.

  • What happened to your Zelda fan survey? I can't believe how long ago that was.

    Posted by The Wizard of LoZ

  • That looks great! It seems like a lot of zelda redditors like it! You may be able to message one of the moderators and ask if they can sticky the survey. I've seen them do this before with one of their own personal surveys. They may be willing to sticky yours due to your purpose. On the right side of the zelda reddit page there is a box that lists the moderators' names. You can click on one of them and message them. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Posted by HeroOfTime5

  • Have you tried posting your survey on [url=http://www.reddit.com/r/zelda?]The Legend of Zelda[/url] There a lot of people that visit that subreddit and I'm confident you can target a wide and diverse audience. They done surveys on there is the past and a lot of people participated.

    Posted by HeroOfTime5

  • Same here. I'm rather in and out, myself.

    Posted by Janus

  • Sounds good.

    Posted by Cody

  • Hey, would you be interested in writing any articles for the site again?
