I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

My right Joycon has been dead for...I don't know how long.  Haven't bothered to replace by having the Pro Controller around.  BUT, I do think the cheaper PowerA wired controller I got a couple years ago was actually a bit more comfortable to use even though it lacked motion and NFC support.

Alright time to rate this game

 

Zelda Links Awkening for the Switch gets a......10 out of 10

I love everything about this game.

Gameplay: check solid as a Octorock

Graphics: Its so adorable its charming and fun it answer all my questions about what this game would look like fleshed out in 3D

Music: I really love what they did with the music in this game but they took an already Iconic soundtrack and somehow elevated it

 

Other nitwits may piss and moan about framerate issues but honestly I never noticed anything in both docked and handheld modes

Others also may complain about the dungeon maker mode not being as robust as say Mario Maker and those people would be idiots this is large step forward to a Zelda Maker being a thing and if they gave it half a chance they would find a nice fun side game that complements the main game very well.

 

Love this game now time to be 12 again and have mom beat Eagles Tower for me

Agreed. The only thing I have is that it only took me 3 days to beat it. But then, that just makes me wonder how quickly I could beat the original now.

The graphics are awesome, and also stylized enough to still look good in a few years. The music is still recognizable from the source, but adds so much to the old chip tunes.

I'm kinda split on the dungeon maker. As an add-on to another game, it works pretty nice. It's a nice little golden saucer type time waster.

If the were to make an actual Zelda Maker though, they'd have to build on it. Instead of rearranging preexisting rooms, I'd want to be able to build rooms from the ground up with my own puzzles. I'd also want to be able to choose which rooms connect with the stairs and which chests have keys. Also go online instead of sticking a single dungeon on an Amiibo.

But as a proof of concept and as an extra added on to another game, this actually works pretty nice.

So I beat this, and been watching a few reviews, and I constantly hear about "The horrible framerate"

 

And all I can think is: "What are they talking about?"

 

So I finally decided to look into this framerate thing. I always thought it was something like some sort of slowdown.

 

I just watched a comparison video on youtube and when it played in 30fps I guess it was a bit slower? Then they play it in 60fps and it feels sped up for a few seconds, then it just looks like it's playing normally.

 

Then they do a side by side and I just don't see a difference.

 

I don't think my eyes work the way everyone else's does. It's just so weird to hear people complain about something I apparently can't see. Not sure what's wrong with me.

Yeah, I finished it and have been playing it just to mess around. I've never noticed anything. I guess some people are more sensitive than others. But when I hear "even if you don't usually notice, you'll notice this," and I'm just sitting there like, "what are they talking about?"

*shrugs*

Good to know I'm not the only one who didn't notice anything. I was thinking maybe there was something wrong with me.

I've noticed framerate drops here and there, but they don't bother me that much.

My only real problem with the game is that the bosses don't make the "bwerrrg" sounds when damaged and defeated. That was probably my favorite sound effect in the original, and I miss it.

I'd give the game a 9 out of 10 in that it is only a minor improvement on an 8 out of 10 game with prettier graphics. I never had a love for Links Awakening that I do for other Zelda games. It's good game and I don't care about framerate or what ever other than the blurry edge of view is a bit distracting. It's good and deserves the remake but that being said I probably wouldn't recommend this game at full price to any experienced gamer. I feel kinda cheated at the length of the game. Granted if I wanted to 100% it it'd get a bit more out of it and the Hero Mode would pose a good challenge. But this isn't a game I have a strong desire to replay or extend my time on. I feel if they knocked off 15 to 20 dollar the game would be more worth the price.

Hey, I've got a question for you Zelda players. Anyone here have Minish cap for the GBA?

 

It's one of the few Zelda games I never got to play and I was thinking: "Hey I just got a tax return. Maybe I'll correct that and buy a copy"

Problem is I'm seeing like three different carts for sale on ebay. Some see through green, some see through red, and others the normal black, except I'm seeing like three different labels.

 

Anyone here with the game able to tell/show me what a legit copy is suppose to look like? I don't really want to buy a bootleg.

That's my copy, though I couldn't say whether or not it was ever rereleased like maybe a game of the year version or something?

If you have a WiiU, it's in the eShop for $7.99. I also have it downloaded on my 3DS, but I didn't see it in the eShop. Not sure if it was taken down or if it just isn't showing it since I already bought it. May be worth checking out.
