Post examples. No stipulations this time>Spectacle Rock isn't only a recurring location in Zelda, the domes are also part of the Fire Dungeon>meaning, like the rest of the dungeons, it's very much part of the game world
>>10419003didn't know the dungeon was in there. that's dope
all the optional codec calls. also wolf pee
Zelda is imbued with this stuff>photo of OoT's "master fisherman" Hena claims to be descended from>as if this wasn't sovl enough, she admits she can't prove it, but she will begin to scratch her back right after talking about him, just like he did in OoT>in the unlikely case you talk to her before the animation ends, she even has something to say
>>10419031You can unfreeze your rations with hand dryers
Guys, move on from Zelda. Really, do it, grow up, play other games. It's really ok to play and discuss other games
>>10419160I played every game in existence. Zelda is like slipping back into the comfort of a warm home
Secrets for the sake of being secret aren't very interesting. You can just hide them behind 100 layers of moon logic
>>10419048>Zelda is imbued with this stuffAlways thought it's cool Hylian text translates to real languageshttps://zelda.fandom.com/wiki/Hylian_Language_Translations
>>10419314Also made this scene so memorable. Sometimes not knowing shit is better
>>10419123Zelda and MGS are in their own tier when it comes to Jap games desu>>10419231>that FFIX Tantalus quest
Reference to the Toad houses from SMB3
>>10419160I didn't play any Zelda games until well into adulthood but they're just really great games that capture the imagination.It doesn't help that they don't have much competition. Like other older games like Shining Force, they're drawing from a western fantasy tradition that is no longer loved or respected like it used to be. The only modern dev delivering anything close to that is Fromsoft.
>>10419231Stuff like OP is cool, if you pay attention it makes total sense and it's not bullshitAgree with your point, shit in modern games like fez monolith for example is just retarded. Secrets should make sense and add to a game's worldbuilding.
>>10419003Fire Temple is my favorite dungeon, it's awesome to discover this!
All the nods at previous games in SH3. Konami Code also has a few fun uses, like turning ZotE into Gradius or Douglas not giving a fuck anymore.
The secret garden's gotta be one of the best optional findings and I haven't even been there yet because I refuse to look up guides
>>10420550I hate how many "secrets" seem to be just bunny hop 5 times then aim your sniper scope and make 3 counterclockwise circles around the tall building and then you hear a ominous laugh.Then some faggot developer will tease how they're a secret no one found yet
>>10419692More 'canon trivia only the developer knows' kinda shit like this?

time blocks don't actually vanish, they are sent 7 years in the past or future. hard to know this without hacks. it was likely intended as puzzles but as it is it's just a cool detail
DMC is babby shit so Itagaki turned Dante into a damsel of distress.
>>10421075SotN chairs are the perfect hidden detail, easy to miss for the unobservant player but a nice goodie for everyone else
>>10419160lol you're so mad
>>10419003>>10421332This as wellCopy-pasting just a few OoT things that felt new to me on my last playthrough>devil skull outside of Ganon's Castle (deceased underling?)>inaccessible(?) underwater cave in Zora's Domain>3x ocarina notes if keeping Z or R pressed, allowing for complex melodies and maybe secrets>field theme is adaptive and broken up into a set of 8-bar clips; relaxed if you're chilling and noisy if there's a lot of action>Z-targeting sounds depend on location/context>sound design is so awesome that you can even hear Talon's snores getting incrementally louder from a mile away>can swim faster tapping B>potion witch always turning her ear to you because she's blind>all the Skulltulas in the world might be cursed humans>can milk cows>Poes remark that Link looks like Zelda and insinuate a connection with the royal family (Link and Zelda being siblings à la Star Wars would make a lot of sense)>only need the Iron Boots like seven times in the Water Temple: For the boots to evoke so much scorn, it really shows how many people got filtered by the Water Temple>Navi also isn't annoying at all if just trying to finish the game: Really shows how much people either loved wasting time in Hyrule or how many got filtered in general>many characters die>most if not all overworld mobs have a big alpha you can lure out>lore-wise, Stalchildren probably still exist in the future but only hunt children (maybe how they're made)>they also won't appear if young Link is walking on the road (or wearing the bunny mask)>easily missable dialogue in which Salia remarks that your ocarina sounds different (Link likely lost hers in the current)>all first three dungeons involve entering a huge creature's mouth>Volvagia has a special boss theme and is the only spirit/guardian that's evil>established resources like Deku Tree bark or Dodongo scales and stomach linings>stealing the angler's hat>the scratches on the Lake Hylia tree have a simple purpose
>>10421959>>devil skull outside of Ganon's Castle (deceased underling?)it got killed by a soldier
>>10419314>Always thought it's cool Hylian text translates to real languages
>>10419031You can take medicine to stop you from sneezing. I always thought this was cool. Also pretty much everything in mgs2/3 have extreme detail. Melting ice cubes, shooting lightbulbs, catching tsuchinoko, the end dying of old age, Raiden getting peed on, "I'm Jennifer", mail room box transportation, healing radio, shooting the ends parrot and eating it alive, etc... such great games.

>tfw not sure if soul or perfidious conditioning
>>10422330It always made me sad how much Rare tried to support Banjo as a new Nintendo IP with little direct references to other games and the expanded Mario universe and Nintendo was more the then happy to go with that, right up until Rare was sold and Nintendo just threw all their IPs out with them, not even trying to buy out the ones from the Rare/Nintendo collab era. Im sure they would have done the same for DK Country if it wasn't based on OG Kong.
In Morrowind, certain items of clothing are only found on certain people. For instance, there are robes only worn by members of the temple. The world building is full of neat, seemingly inconsequential details like that.
>>10422932The Stamper Bros. to be fair were foolish to try to outjew the Japanese jew Yamauchi. They intentionally sold 49% to Microsoft to have them at a stalemate believing Yamauchi would buy the remaining 2% from the Stampers at an inflated price to keep Rare, given their role on keeping the N64 afloat. They didn't expect the old man would actually sell Nintendo's 49% directly to Microsoft, forever and permanently fucking Rare into shovelware irrelevancy.
In Ultima Underworld ramming into a wall will cause you to bounce off of it. The faster you hit the wall, the more you'll bounce back from it afterward.Hitting a wall fast enough, hard enough, will damage you. The physicsfag in me really appreciates all of this. Not something you would expect an immersive first person fantasy dungeon crawling sim to care about, but they did.
Do you motherfuckers play anything else than zelda? This might be even more of a manchild franchise than bing bing wahoo. Holy fucking cringe.
>>10423936Why not post some weird interesting shit from a game you like instead?
>>10423936>This might be even more of a manchild franchise than bing bing wahoo.aw, 'nother franchise filled with soul unlike whatever you likehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bHWYs0fjdY
>>10424535you can also control the water level in wet-dry world depending on how high you jump into the painting
>>10421870I think there is one place in the game where you can still see that this is how it works, and it's the song of time block in that little lava room off to the side in Goron City that has the hookshot target on the other side.
>>10421959>Volvagia has a special boss theme and is the only spirit/guardian that's evilPretty sure Bongo Bongo is explicitly stated as being some evil murderer's ghost. How are Twinrova and Phantom Ganon not also evil?I can see Morpha being some neutral entity but that's about it unless you're also counting Gohma/King Dodongo/Barinade which are also just neutral animals/a parasite or some shit.
>>10422241>westerners are very infantile, despite their facade as being "mature"
>>10424593SA probably has the best easter eggs in the series>random mass grave with six body bags>can spot this suspicious figure nearby>however, there's also a female radio host who says incremental things during different broadcasts>reveals she had six husbands who are deceased>reveals she broadcasts from a county that's very close>reveals she drives a truck
>>10421906this is funny because confirmed in an interview
>>10424653Also extremely rare remaster W
>>10419160What game should we play if we want that same magic then
>>10419003Tales of Symphonia and the first Tales game taking place in the same world, some characters being related, etc.
>>10421060>The secret garden's gotta be one of the best optional findings and I haven't even been there yet because I refuse to look up guidesIt's not intended as it's there for the ending movie. It's just possible to climb there manually to view it.
>>10425001>a bug can triforce but i can't
>>10421959>>the scratches on the Lake Hylia tree have a simple purposeWhich is?
>>10424653there is something spoopy about retro GTA the new shit can't capture
>>10425664The NPC's and world have a facade of simplicity but sinister themes just under the surface if you choose to explore them.It's like finding out your grandparents' house is built on indian burial ground
>>10424653Weren't there some mob hitmen shown disposing of those bodies in The Introduction? Not the game's intro, but the prequel short.
>>10424585It’s not that the other bosses aren’t evil, it’s that Volvagia is the Death Mountain equivalent to Jabu Jabu and the Deku Tree but fights you instead of helping
>>10424585What I love is how fucking dark the lore around the Shadow temple and bottom of the well is.I mean there's a direct Implication that the Bottom of the Well wasn't just a torture chamber but a royal sanctioned one run by some psycho interrogator. Hence why he had an eye who could see the truth, he'd get the truth out of you one way or another.
>>10421332>no trees anywhere near the OoT deku tree>whatever that rock outcropping is is surrounded by water instead of forest
>>10424996>can do damage with an iron boots rollholy shit
>>10424996>>10425001>>10425508I still have to cringe that Nintendo actually hated that they had to make Twilight Princess because it went against their "We have to reinvent the wheel every Zelda and this is just us ripping off OOT!"
I rushed through TP when it launched from hype overdose and ended up feeling meh about it. These vids are making me want to go back and replay it, it looks like it had a lot of charm to its world i skipped out on.
>>10427042I also find it weird there's this whole stigma about Wind Waker not being gritty enough and fan backlash, then after TP, they go on to make Pastel Babby Skyward Sword
>Crysis is soulles-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXgCnFNL7nA
rusl is dead
>>10424593Not like this was never doen irl
>>10428212-s, yes I agree.
>>10428212This game was actually short of a miracle>huge promises>released on time>promises kept>game runs well, no bugs or DLC dramaIt was a better time
>>10429097>It was a better time
>>10421959Nice catches!>inaccessible(?) underwater cave in Zora's DomainYes it's a cut door. I don't remember but it may have been a shortcut to lake hylia>easily missable dialogue in which Salia remarks that your ocarina sounds different (Link likely lost hers in the current)It's because you have the Ocarina of Time now>>10422274The pikachu cutscene ONLY had the tail
>>10428448>see him dying or gravely injured as a wolf>come back alter to get the iron boots from the mayor>you can tell all the villagers the kids are safe in kakariko>rusl is nowhere to be found, either at home, by/in link's house, at the farm, or ordon spring
speaking of pikachu, pretty sure the fox mask was a pikachu reference. oot came out when pokemon got huge and all the kids in the game want one
>>10430139I would have loved to have seen this released as a full game.
>>10422286>The elder scrote: Daggerphallus
>>10430167yah no shit. If you paly the fucking elvel its literally the same boat
>i'm not a coomer believe mekinda cringe
>>10430197Reminds me of this. A Japanese ToS voice actress also voiced Rose for the Japanese Titanic dub.
>>10419160Why did you enter this thread?Could you suggest a valid alternative?
iirc in oracle zelda you can use seeds on the chickens
>>10430182You know this is bullshit because why the fuck would they make her breast size adjustable on a sliding scale for whatever reason lmao
>>10430404There were a few things like that throughout the game’s life, like after the Pyromania update certain classes had their melee animations swapped with that of their robot counterparts months before MvM was even revealed. You could tell they were different because the classes began jittering around and strafing with the new anims caused their pelvis to bend 90 degrees the same way the robots do
>>10419314Bro WHATThe text on the sword is "Zubora Gabora" aka the names of the fucking blacksmiths in Majora's Mask
>>10425582I have to know
>>10431659Well Termina is kind of a wacky phantom parallel universe
>>10431721And Link never raped Majora in the WW timeline
>>10419003Silent Hill is amazing at this, SH1 in particular is just amazing with how ridiculously complex or detailed arbitrary things are. >the sound of the radio reflects how close an enemy is and which direction they're coming>Harry has three unique falling animations that can only be seen near the start of the game in the only area with ledges>the puppet nurses and doctors have three variants with a unique face texture and slightly different stats>Infected Cybil can run out of ammo in her boss fightJust walking around tbe town and seeing the stores on the street is entertaining, wish later SH titles kept this more open exploration.
>>10431730imo 1 has easily the most intrinsic artistic value of all the SHs. probably the best horror buildup ever in the intro as well
>>10425508These games are so fucking ugly.
>>10422379I'm not sure what is actually happening here?
>>10431787If you miss all your shots the minigame host will turn his head away from you instead of looking at you
In Mario RPG if you try to save into a used slot that is different from the one you are using it warn you that's not the slot of your previous save and if you are sure you want to overwrite it.If you choose "No" at least about 10 times and then choose yes Mario will do a (random?) different animation than his usual victory animation. This happens in the remake too.(Yes yes I know, horribly stretched video with ugly filters, but it was hard to find a video showing this)
>>10431805There are many secrets in this game.
>>10428448>>10429305>After Link clears the Lakebed Temple, he finds Rusl in Telma's Bar alongside the other members of The Resistance, although in an armored disguise. He will only take his helmet off and reveal himself to Link the second time he is spoken to, saying nothing initially. He has been connected with the Resistance and their goal for a long time.
>>10426504Yeah BongoBongo was the evil interrogator for Hyrule, he used the Eye of Truth to find out spies and traitors against the Kingdom of Hyrule. I always figured that since the worst torture shit was found under his house instead of the shadow temple prison then he must have been doing really evil things beyond his job and when this was found out he was executed by beheading and his hands lopped off. I mean the entire area beneath the well can only be entered by one who has the eye of truth which would be him implying it was something he didn't want anyone else to know about.That's my head canon on it anyway.
>>10424667Shang Tsung strikes again!
>>10423936Fuck off you retarded faggot
>>10424585>Pretty sure Bongo Bongo is explicitly stated as being some evil murderer's ghost. How are Twinrova and Phantom Ganon not also evil?I don't think those are the same category as picrel
>>10419003Daggerfall has tons of holidays and certain dates you can only get deadric artifacts on. I always loved walking outside after a long sleep and being presented with something like>” The Day of Waiting is a very old holy day among certain settlements in the Dragontail Mountains. Every year at that time, a dragon is supposed to come out of the desert and devour the wicked, so everyone locks himself up inside.”Yes this is a real holiday in daggerfall.
>>10431907Makes sense that he was the royal torturer in life, the shadow temple and the bottom of the well both have cells and crucifixion posts. Maybe it started out at the bottom of the well then moved to the Shadow Temple, only for the Royal Family to find out he was taking his work home with him.Since his spirit comes out of the well must mean they caught him at the scene of the crime and killed him there. Then they blocked up the entrance except for the small child sized hole.Course meant the Village was getting their water supply from an underground chamber filled with corpses.
>>10431787If you don't shoot any of the rupees he feels insulted and pouts
>>10432278This game is crazy
Olimar's Wife was abusive :(
>>10432386>snowflakes landing on the groundit's the little things as well
>>10427042true, TP is easily the best Zelda game bar noneI read Nintendo like saying "we don't want to make a good game!"
>>10432278>"yeah big deal everybody knows tha-">the sign pieces start floating across the waterOh shit
>>10432413>easilyPersonally wouldn't go that far. A bit too many lows compared to OoT's insane balance and coherence. Some later dungeons are weak with increasingly flimsy content in between, the dreariness isn't everyone's cup of tea and the finale more or less a cinematic experience. Comfy start and brilliant midgame, though
>>10432478Doesn't this game have a massive tutorial? Like the longest in Zelda history?
>>10432548>Doesn't this game have a massive tutorial?The first few hours are linear and hallway-y, but tutorial isn't really the right word
>>10432590>some areas have stronger wind than others, taking things like gap flow into account>clouds, dust, banners, clothes, grass, particles and even the trajectory of your cast all caught by the wind the same way
>>10421016Legend of the mystical ninja (Goemon 1) for the Snes has a NPC commenting that if you input the Konami code nothing will happen.
>>10432478>compared to OoTOoT is so fucking barebones and dull, TP is a fucking speedway of high octane and epic scenarios. Just herd goats once or twice at the beginning and set sail for the high winds of adventure. I'm done debating with niggers who put OoT on a pedestal, learn to recognize TP or don't ball's in your court now.
>>10432278https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xj4PnLv5Irsthis place had the weirdest comfiness going on with the spooky alien people shown as elegant and friendly
>>10432729>TP is a fucking speedway of high octane and epic scenarios.That's what makes it shit. It's constantly shoving thing after thing in your face and never lets up to let you explore for yourself. It's a fake adventure presented to you like so many themepark rides.
>>10432729NTA, but I feel like Morpheel is probably one of my favorite bosses in the franchise. It's a fine mix of gameplay and cinematography for lack of a better term. Very cool fight altogether.The dragon in the sky temple also comes to mind. All around, I'd say TP had the best boss fights in the series for sure.
>>10433084https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSHB65kg0QQPure kino. Some minibosses are even better. Low difficulty is a stain, but that fucker with the flail still killed me so w/e
First Budokai game is pure love for detail and still the most authentic DBZ game. Feels like playing through the anime, if not better because of that banger soundtrack and no fillers. Gameplay is simple but solid and no QTE shit like in Budokai 3
>>10433275The GC version still looks insane
>>10432038This is what I love about the Zelda series along with others like the Thief games and Morrowind is there is a lot of enviromental story telling for anyone who stops to think about things enough. It shows true passion from the game developers and makes the world these video games set in seem real and immersive, sadly its something that is becoming more and more rare since it ultimately has no major bearing on the ultimate quality of a game for most people.
>>10433420The problem is that these days game developers like most TV and movie developers think that the audience is too stupid to understand subtext and implications so they either have to spell it out in giant bold font like it's a Disney movie or simply not even bother because why create subtext if no one notices.Like one of the largest things that disappointed me about Windwalker wasn't the graphic change but the fact that so many of the islands felt like cookiecutter islands for islands sake and so many of the ruins outside of maybe the forest ruins were ruins for Ruins sake.Another thing is thanks to deadlines companies no longer have the time so spend time adding extras and secrets and clever points to flesh out a game, especially if they're trying to make a game changing game.OOT was supposed to be a game changer so Nintendo was given plenty of time and support to put anything and everything to show this isn't the same Nintendo you knew, we're willing to be edgier now
>>10424968The put a special type of fruit up there, it's totally intended.
>>10433286>meanwhile cutscenes 10 years later>everything looks like shit and characters are just standing there like toy soldiersNever understood how DBZ fans ate this up
>>10433084I fucking hated the dragon fight.>Link FINALLY gets to fight a real, actual dragon!>The ENTIRE ARENA IS IN THE AIR!>just grab him with the item that you got in the dungeon three times and you win. That's literally the only way TO win as well
>>10419003I'm high right now and I thought you were making the insinuation that the boulder mounds were made to look like tiddies.
>>10421016It turns Zone of the Enters into Gradius?
>>10432386Disaster Report has many similar unnecessary animations like that

>>10422379If you don't fire on the rupees during the mini-game, the NPC says you don't need to if you don't want.
>>10434784Nobody's watching your game theory video.
>>10424735there's definitely something special about most of the zelda games, but you don't need "that same" magic. you can have other magic.
>>10430312so if you're going to talk about sovlfvl details zelda is a good start, but it isn't the only game series out there with these kinds of details. look at the catalogue. see how many threads there are related to zelda. it's too fucking much man. consider the following: i'd love to get around to playing OoT some day but i see it so much the game is starting to seem a little dull and generic, and i know the game isn't that.
>>10419003https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2Yp1amX1iAcynic wave race announcer is the best thing ever
>>10434731>dem rain drops hanging from objects>can see all your items attached to your backpack>>10435032You are autistic to be botehred by a few threads using pics of a series as big and successful as Zelda
>>10435032yeah but the problem is you aren't helping either. not only is details one of its strengths but you don't name a single title to help us out.if I asked "games about going fast" and someone said "duh sonic" you could have said 'well, there's also F-zero and games like that'. but you don't even do that. youre useless to thread.
>people ITT really are sóygaping at some piece of wood floating on the water in zeldaholy kek
>>10435308Don't be disingenuous.It's cool because they didn't need to program something so rarely seen, but they did. It's the little details like these that show how much love, thought, and care they put into OoT and part of what makes the game, and others like it, really special. I wouldn't expect you to understand.
>>10435282>>10435295zelda is overrepresented on this board.
>>10430246this has been deboonked
>>10430272Pepperidge farms remembers.
>>10435308>people ITT mad that people enjoy discussing anything at all and not just shitposting 24/7 like them
>>10435308>love for detail thread>hahaha people post love for detail?>I just want my completely static JRPGs!
>>10435308Most modern games dont even do that.
>>10435032How the fuck is that anybodys problem except yours?
What 2D games have clouds with shadows besides this? It's maximum comfy
>>10435368sure but. its not this thread's fault. it's your fault for being too dumb to name ONE (1) game with more secrets than zelda so I can talk about it instead
>>10435025>STOP TALKING ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC FEELING ONLY THIS FRANCHISE GIVES YOU??? You just validated the thread
holy shit lol>>10435967i'm saying the overrepresentation of zelda on /vr/ is a community problem. the assertion that it's a personal problem just dismisses my point and frames it as irrelevant. don't play games with me, son.>>10436050i mean if i go into a non-zelda thread and a good chunk of the discussion is related to zelda, it kinda is the thread's fault. i would've have said anything otherwise. calm the fuck down.>>10436092this doesn't undermine my position on the subject. anyway, i'm done with you freaks. have a nice day.
>>10420979You can also kill him at the start of the game if you are fast enough
>>10430190Clinton wasn't president when sonic first came out
>>10434784>"It's a reference to something that will happen in a game 20 years from now!"Yeah, no, bullshit. You are a fucking idiot if you think a random ass claw mark on a tree in a game released in 1998 was supposed to be a reference to something they would not reveal until several games later in 2017. Especially since the claw mark was not even there in the 3DS version. Not every single literal scratch on the wall has some deep lore behind it.
>>10419003The one normal soldier in ALttP. Also the dying soldier in OoT if no one mentioned it yet
>>10437382Interestingly that's the same engine. At least I think
>>10430139i remember being fucking hyped as shit when they showed screenshots of it in a gaming mag back in the day.there's some footage of it around somewhere as well.if i remember correctly you'd use the d pad to move, the stylus and lower screen to aim and fire with the buttons.probably would've been shit either way with that control scheme.
>>10437649I just wonder what Ganon's up to
>>10436143I'm speechless. It's like I'm talking to a wall. You literally didn't name a game after I told you. Do you even look at the posts you reply to??there is a lot of zelda threads? Yes, but at least they didn't hijack a random thread to make a meta post while posting the pic of some clown. imo you're the one who is more of a problem to the board. idk if the jannies will pay attention to your shitposting or not (they should) but if you don't read my post l don't gotta read your rambling either.
>>10419003The problem with Zelda threads is not just that there are too many, which there are, it's also the the creators of most of those threads are autistic assholes that lack basic conversation skills.
>>10437657>thread shits on WWit's a TP thread, and WW is terrible regardless
>>10438369>and WW is terrible regardlessNot according to people whose opinion matters, normal people and reviewers
>>10438462Let's be honest. WindWaker is imperfect but frankly I enjoyed it. Nintendo shines when they make games like this, spirit tracks, etc... I also don't like the new open world Zeldas.
>>10422241This has to be a joke.
>>10438493>WindWaker is imperfectNo shit? No game is perfect except for maybe extremely simple ones like pong. Zelda games have a million mechanics
The wind requiem is the same notes as Epona's song in OoT
>>10438686makes sense desu
Harry Potter on PS1 had an extremely eerie atmosphere. You would spend most the time exploring empty environments of the castlehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ia1ASdn57N8The room where you read the book is quiet and empty. When you close the book after completing the game, it puts you back to the main menu. If you collected all of the cards, it plays a creepy laugh on top of it all, see the last seconds of the video
>>10438493>imperfectDo you often call games terrible just for being 'imperfect'?Why is everyone on this board an antisocial autist?
>>10440842>Saying something is "imperfect" means your antisocialWhat?
>>10440864You said terrible first. Being this tactless, undiplomatic and incapable of drifting into the borderlands of exaggeration is antisocial, yes
>>10440714i forgot how s*ul this game was
>>10426504>Hence why he had an eye who could see the truth, he'd get the truth out of you one way or another.If he had an eye that could see the truth, why would he need to interrogate?
>>10436235neither was sonic
>>10430349Yeah, mystery seeds turn them into chicks.But if you use the seeds on them while you're being attacked by the flying ones after bullying them, they become huge instead.
>>10440927You are talking to multiple people. Learn how to use chan.
>>10441404That is a very good point. They should make a "Did you know Gaming" info graphic for that fact. Hopefully, Bundy will have a Sonic episode of Fat Cunt explaining this too.
>>10434784>Breath of the Wild
>>10431907>>10432038I like this but one detail that doesn’t make sense for this theory is that you don’t need the Lens of Truth in order to enter the well; you cause the windmill to drain the well so that you can enter and retrieve the Lens of Truth from within it.Another theory I’ve heard which works pretty well is that Bongo Bongo is a vengeful spirit similar to the manifestations of powerful emotions (Onin, I think) which cause other spirits like Poes to linger, but that instead of being the ghost of one person it’s an amalgamation of most/all of the tortured victims who died in the well/temple.Which, if that’s the case, is frankly kind of depressing since it implies that the royal family’s crimes are effectively unpunished and the spirits of those they interrogated continued to suffer for no reason. At least Link finally enables them to lay to rest in that interpretation.
I always thought it was neat that, when Maria asks Alucard 's ever heard of Richter Belmont, it shows Trevor Belmont's NES sprite when Alucard thinks about the name "Belmont" itself.
>>10422653Wait; the "black tip" thing is just the patch of brown fur at the base of his tail this whole time? That's still part of his design, even now.
>>10442483>pikachu used to be retarded
>>10430190>no sonic based on orange man
>>10419048Damn, to think one of Zelda's ancestors was a fish.
>>10443234Wtf is this, bud
>>10432278how the fuck am I still finding out new things about this game.
>>10419692This is as dumb and as random as someone making up shit on the spot. No foreshadowing of any kind. Makes even less sense since MM exists.
>>10443243That 25th anniversary edition sure has taken some liberties
>>10443532>no foreshadowing>game literally tells you children gest lost in the woods and become skull kids
>>10443804kekhe's also a psycho looking for danger, he had it coming
>>10419003WW did most of the Zelda things ITT and more
>>10444757>feet ik dynamically to the groundThat guy is an idiot, esp. the uncharted bit. OOT had IK and that released earlier.
>>10445392Not sure if it's the actual feet doing it OoT or just the legs desu. I know it's definitely both in TP
>>10434519So exactly like every single other boss fight in the entire franchise?
>>10445392Oot doesn't have IK, it's a predetermined animation. IK is dynamic and the first game with it is ICO.
>>10437410>Super Famicom game by Nintendo>GBA game by Capcom>same engine
>>10438686Same C buttons, but not the same notes.
>>10445769>Oot doesn't have IKSource? Looks like textbook IK>it's a predetermined animationEverything is predetermined>and the first game with it is ICOJurassic Park Trespasser predates even OoT
Gothic 2 got some of the comfiest rain
>>10446887>>Everything is predeterminedIK is not.
>>10445754"Item in dungeon is the only way to kill the boss" only started with Ocarina of Time.
>>10436143>a community problemit's not>dismisses my point and frames it as irrelevantit is>don't play games with methis is a board about games, faggotYour pic is very apt, you are a clown.
>>10445769>Oot doesn't have IKI would disagree with your wording since code is always executed exactly as written. If you know so much about IK, it's also weird that you believe ICO was the first game to feature it. Can I get source for the claim that OoT doesn't have IK? Looks like IK and it's commonly accredited to OoT by programmers>>10447753Can't remember WW and TP but every OoT item outside of the lens is practically a weapon, so that didn't feel out of the ordinary
>>10447824>You HAVE to use the Slingshot on Gohma>You HAVE to use the Bombs on Dodongo>You HAVE to use the Boomerang on Barinade>You HAVE to use the Arrows on Phantom Ganon>You HAVE to use the Megaton Hammer on Volvagia>You HAVE to use the Hookshot on Morpha>You HAVE to use the Hover Boots and Lens on Bongo Bongo>You HAVE to use the Mirror Shield on Twinrova>You HAVE to use the Light Arrows on Ganondorf
Part of the OOT theme is the tune the flute plays in the first Zelda.
>>10447839>you HAVE to use your new weapon to defeat the enemywtf pls no
>>10432548yes, it pretty much lasts until getting the master sword
>>10422285that lineage wound up as Gachablade on the Switch so I guess it depends on your taste
>>10438686>>10439007>>10446374Not even the same directions. This whole line of posting was a mess, LOL.
>>10448029By the time of Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword, it got bad enough to where that was genuinely their ONLY use. Previous Zelda games gave you the freedom to improvise and use all the weapons you have at your disposal instead of going "Wow; you got the Giant Monster Horn Shaver in the Ancient Barbershop. I wonder how you're going to defeat Sharp Facial Hair Man - King Hornbeard?"
>>10419003It's Cloudbreakers for me and playing at the backseat of a car makes its juicy.
>>10447314Lol you don't even understand what IK even is then. It isn't some specific algorithm, but a general strategy to solve constraint problems, which can absolutely be made deterministic, even if general IK strategies can be chaotic, especially when you're only really dealing with two joint rotations with 1 and 3 degrees of natural freedom + the ankle joint and.
>>10441651The funny thing is there's a legitimate 32-bit sprite of Trevor in the game for the inverted Colosseum, but Alucard remembers him in 8-bit. It's like how little kids used to ask adults if "it was black and white back then," because they watched old tv and their parents teased them.
>>10422270I'm still made the director commentary of the game on youtube was never finished.
>>10449643Nintendo keeps blowing my mind...
>>10421959>>inaccessible(?) underwater cave in Zora's Domainalso just in general:https://noclip.website/Enjoy
>>10433420Tp does an ass load of indirect story telling. snowpeak ruins was an outpost for hyrules army aat one point before it fell to shit. Tp in general is contantly showing hyrule during its great depression
I'm sure many sidescrolers do this but I love how you can interact with a lot of things in Dragon View
>>10450809>https://noclip.website/If this also had music/ambience I'd rather just fire up that website instead of playing through some retro games
>>10419160Nah fuck you snoy, I'm never giving it up
>>10450809Maybe it was intended as another shortcut but then they realized it's too deep for young Link and the Domain will stay frozen in the future. Or it's just part of Hyrule's underground water cycle. Or we are supposed to imagine that the real Zora village is hidden under the surface and behind the walls where they have their rooms
>>10425582>>10431704Letting you know that the tree is soft enough for your hookshot. Lore-wise, probably just Rauru marking a dungeon
>>10422614It took me years to finally notice it, but the G-man is definitely Gordon Freeman
>>10419969>It doesn't help that they don't have much competition.They don’t have any. Even games known to be Zelda-like have few puzzles by comparison and are mostly battle focused.
>>10453480In my personal opinion, Dragon View is a better Zelda 2 and Okami a better Zelda TP. But yeah, otherwise this series is unparalleled at what it does and its own best competition
>>10419314>>10431659TP's Death Sword's Japanese name is also Sword of Gobera. Considering Death Sword also moves and shoots projectiles like Phantom Ganon and the sword looks like something Ganondorf would use (down to an upside down Triforce like on Demise's sword), it's most definitely Phantom Ganon
>>10453685All the Phantom Ganons have a characteristic weapon so you could even theorize from here that they're all part of the sword spirit race like Ghirahim and Fi
>>10419160Gotta leave the autists to it bro, I left vr last year because of the Zelda faggots. I come back in occasionally to warn regards like you to abandon ship. Seriously, leave /vr/, the board is entirely Zelda incels now.
>>10453712There are like five Zelda fans on /vr/ and you easily drown them out with your samefagging and spam. Stop crying so much>Seriously, leave /vr/Agreeing with that though
>>10421959Anon, King Dodongo and Volvagia share battle music, and Phantom Ganon, Morpha, Bongo Bongo, and Twinrova are all evil as well. Additionally, while this might be my personal speculation, the Stalchildren are likely not children, but the soldiers who died in the civil war. They might be "children" because they look like smaller, weaker Stalfos. Only Skull Kids are confirmed to be actual children.
>>10453712You only see nothing but Zelda threads because that's what you come here looking for bro
>>10426456Historia made that up. In the games themselves, Volvagia is just an infamous, powerful dragon that massacred the Gorons in the past.
>>10453908>Ethnic genocideSounds pretty evil to me bro
>>10426504>>10426504>>10432038>>10433420>>10433893>>10450963The Royal Family had Triforce symbols that responded to their song (Zelda's Lullaby) in the Bottom of the Well complex and the Shadow Temple, so everything there was government approved, not the work of a rogue agent. This means that Bongo Bongo was either an accumulated Poe of sorts or an engineered weapon created by the Sheikah, and it wasn't imprisoned so much as the Sheikah just put it in storage under their likely chieftain's house. Also, considering the area Dampe uses as his grave, along with the Redead grotto, All of the caverns and tunnels in Kakariko Village were likely used by the Sheikah for nefarious purposes, and the Sheikah's infamy may have resulted in them being especially targeted in the wars, resulting in them nearly going extinct.
>>10453908>Historia made that upWith Nintendos supervision
Wind Waker already all but confirmed that Volvagia isn't just some random monster. It was always odd and basis for fan theories that Gorons are the only tribe with a Spiritual Stone that don't have a guardian
>>10447839Deku Nuts work on Gohma, Bomb Flowers exist in King Dodongo's arena, the Hookshot works on Phantom Ganon, Din's Fire works to get Morpha out of its water tentacles, and neither the Hover Boots nor the Lens of Truth are required against Bongo Bongo.
>>10453918The made-up part was Volvagia being a god like the Great Deku Tree or Lord Jabu-Jabu.>>10454029It was a total asspull with no founding in the game though, and it's baffling why the Golden Goddesses would allow one of their divine servants to try genociding the Gorons. The Megaton Hammer wasn't even a weapon created by the gods, nor was its first wielder chosen by them. Additionally, if Valoo is somehow a new version of Volvagia a la Jabun being Jabu-Jabu, there's no reason for Valoo to arbitrarily cease being evil.
>>10454073Valoo is a different type of dragon entirely who shows no animosity to any race in particular, is highly respected and trusted by King Daphnes, and Ganon antagonizes him with Gohma instead of recruiting him like he did with Volvagia. Where Volvagia is clearly a monster a la Aquamentuses and Gleeoks, Valoo is a servant of the gods who has never been suspect.
>>10432604>>10450963I'm sure this is just a retarded case of "NEW BAD OLD GOOD" but I always loved the look of the gcs controller layout being on screen in some games. I think having everything in a diamond with no color looks so soulless
>>10454204>>10454214So you believe Valoo and Volvagia weren't intended to have any connection and it's just coincidences that>Valoo's name is a similar play on Volvagia as Jabun's is on Jabu-Jabu's>he's a red dragon just like Volvagia>lives on top of a volcano just like Volvagia>is pissed af just like Volvagia>the first thing you see when entering the fire dungeon is a Volvagia mural that gives him yellow eyes like Valoo and makes him look more human than his OoT counterpart>>10454438The unique HUD is part of why some old games have their charm. Vice City is the best example
>>10419160>kid gets upset that other people enjoy video games>tries to act mature by saying he doesn't play game x-y-z>ends up coming across as deeply immature and insecureWonder why they do this
>>10422383........which one is supposed to be the asian one
Cockroaches in Half-Life 1 have complex AI.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Elwb2lV88hMAlso, when you explode a human, while most of the gibs fly around randomly, the skull is designed to fly directly towards the camera in the hopes of freaking out the player.
>>10431561LEAVE HIM ALONE
>>10445769>IK is dynamic and the first game with it is ICO.Try Heretic II.
>>10447753they changed in that the very next game.
>>10454848Also predated by OoT and Jurassic Chad
>>10455653Poor fish :(
>>10422320I remember playing that game at Chuck E Cheese. Well after Sonic released though but I thought it was super cool.
>>10423406Brilliant play in retrospect
