    If Link wasn't so fat, Darknuts wouldn't be able to outmaneuver him and me.

    When you do a challenge in this game, you are constantly using this. It's actually very comfortable and natural to hold the two controllers like that, though. I wouldn't play Zelda any other way.
    Witnessing this discovery firsthand was like being in the same room as Nicolae Paulescu when he discovered insulin.

    I've never played any Zelda game before (I know right) but I'm doing this. I have no idea what the smurf I am doing, wandering around being chased by horrible things and stabbing them with my sword. It's great fun.

    I don't think I'll be completing any challenges, though!

    Holy crap just used a bomb to try to blow up some asshole monsters and it blew a hole in a wall and some nice fella inside gave me a heart.

    It's probably old news to you guys, but man, that was pretty lucky and awesome.

    Strangely, I just finished designing a "Third Quest" for this game. If anyone wants to play it when they're done with the regular first two, lemme know.

    I hate to say it on this board, but I'm much more of a Zelda fan than a FF fan (notice the Triforce tat on my shoulder) and I know this game inside and out.

    That being said, why the hell have I never tried the "Pacifist" challenge idea? I'm doing that!

    Oh that's really useful, thank you! I think I will go to see that fairy and see what she's all about!

    Hey Psy, if you get the candle, try burning random bushes.

    Mm'kay Znes says the ROM Jeremy sent me is bad, so either it is or they're like not compatible or something. I haven't used an emulator in years so someone tell me how to be less stupid.

    is Minimalism only on the first play through, or both?
    If it's only the first play through.... I might be able to do that. Sadly I do not possess a digital camera and would probably play my GBA version so I can do it in class when I'm not taking notes lol

    ZSNES would say that, because the original Zelda was for the NES. Wrong system.

    zsnes is for super nintendo games and Zelda is a nintendo game. You're going to need another emulator. download Nestopia or Nesticle.

    edit: I see Aaron already got you covered.

    also, using maps is for sillies! It's much more fun to draw the map yourself as you discover things.

    I did, until I reread her post and saw that it actually said "Znes," so I deleted mine. Maybe you'll want to undelete it now to provide context to your edit though. Is there actually a NES emulator named Znes or is that just a typo for ZSNES like I originally thought it was?

    also as far as NES emulators go I've been using FCE Ultra, but really they're all pretty comparable.
