I take back every bad thing I ever said about Canada

http://www.canadaonly.ca/products/General-Mills-French-Toast-Crunch-380g.html It's not even the crappy second version that was discontinued a few years back, this is like the REAL ORIGINAL AWESOME French Toast Crunch from the 90's. HOLY MOTHER SHIT HOW LONG HAS THIS BEEN GOING ON AND NOBODY TOLD ME ...

Re: Slash, wheeze, slash, wheeze

I actually stopped playing after the sixth dungeon. I got my fill. If I could go fight the final boss straight away and be done with it, I'd go ahead and finish it up properly, but the game's already expended all my patience for piddling around. So yeah, this is the first main Zelda game since the o...

Re: Software is for pussies.

So I finally figured out where all these friend requests are coming from. In the Vita PSN store, there's a thing called "Minna to Issho" - http://www.jp.playstation.com/psn/minitsu/ - with characters from Dokodemo Issho. Basically it's nothing but a social lobby where other players can randomly end ...

Re: Slash, wheeze, slash, wheeze

Finished the sixth dungeon. There's nothing as annoying as Wind Waker (at least not yet), but I still consider this the second weakest Zelda I've ever played (not counting the handhelds, the only one of which I played enough to judge was the Game Boy one... and that was also better than this). It's ...

Re: Slash, wheeze, slash, wheeze

There are much worse parts in the game, like your first trek through the desert where you have to dash across quicksand 57 times See, now that didn't bother me the first time, but being forced to do it all again (such as in the silent realm) is incredibly lame. A time limit and stealth quest does n...

Re: Slash, wheeze, slash, wheeze

Okay, so that wasn't just me! I thought maybe I misunderstood the explanation. It took me the longest time to get the hang of falling - you really have to tilt it. Any time you went into a new area eclipsed by Twilight you'd have to search for these bugs in the area that held tears Okay, that's righ...

Re: Slash, wheeze, slash, wheeze

This is actually a conscious design decision. Oh that clears it up, I thought it ended up in the game code by accident! Remind me again what the "tear quests" in Twilight Princess were. Because I don't remember anything as annoying as Skyward's silent realms. Backtracking is not what bothers me, bu...

Re: Slash, wheeze, slash, wheeze

Yeah, that's another problem, there are niggling issues with the motion control throughout. Sometimes I have to reset the game two or three times before I can get it callibrated correctly. Skyward Sword has so many parallels to Wind Waker (both good and bad), I'm suspecting it was made by the same t...

Re: Slash, wheeze, slash, wheeze

So I'm somewhere between the fifth and sixth dungeons and holy crap does this game have a lot of filler in the second half. Run around this area you've already explored to collect all these orbs in the time limit, go back into this old dungeon, fight this old boss, and oops, you can't progress here ...

Umeboshi's not weird, I devour that shit. But yeah, I also love sour things. I've become notorious at work for bringing strange snacks to share. The first response I get when I offer anything to anyone is usually "It's not spicy, is it?" or "Is it normal?" I tried natto only once. It is the sort of ...

Re: Slash, wheeze, slash, wheeze

I'm a bit past the fourth dungeon. It's good, but there are rough pockets. The controls don't always work like they're supposed to and there's an occasional annoying challenge mixed in with the good stuff (those "silent realms" spring immediately to mind) . And all that flying through empty space re...

Re: Does this make me gay?

Cod are kinda hot, I guess. The texture of sushi is the hardest thing to get past. It just feels like something you shouldn't be eating. Once I learned to focus on the taste, I discovered it didn't really taste like anything at all... Yeah, I'm not crazy about sushi either, but I've conquered the ga...

Does this make me gay?

Early this year, like in January, I attended a kind of formal dinner at a nice Japanese restaurant. It had the strangest food I'd ever seen, much less attempted to eat. The normalest thing on the table was wakame soup, or at least it was the only thing I could positively identify. One thing in parti...

Re: Software is for pussies.

Don't know if it's got anything to do with the Vita, but when I logged into my (Japanese) PSN account today, I had like 100 friend requests - all from people I've never met.

Re: Slash, wheeze, slash, wheeze

Wait, so all the Zelda games take place on an official timeline? I never knew that. So this means that Skyward Sword is a prequel to all of them? And based on that graph, the original Fami and Super games take place in an alternate, bad future universe? I'd actually hoped nobody bothered to think th...

I think some people were already talking about Skyward Sword in the "what are you playing now" thread, but I thought Zelda deserved its own topic, so here it is.
