  • A game of intriguing dice

    How on Earth can dice be intriguing?

    Dice are king, but can also be tamed

    I think they have a dice fetish.

    It's okay I guess? A very streamlined MtG with some random elements. The art style is pretty ugly and reminds me of some sort of F2P mobile game, but other than that it's fine.

    Eh, those characters are not nearly fan service-y enough for a F2P mobile game...

    why do F2P games almost always have boobage that defies gravity and sense to shove in your face at every opportunity?

    Is it because the quality of the game appears to be inversely proportional to the boobage on display? the developers are trying to distract people from how terrible the game is?

    Because the gaming industry still has its head stuck firmly in a time period where women in games were either sex symbols, damsels in distress, or frequently both?

    Well, and I think the target market is "barely pubescent/college age guys", so might as well get them thinking with their dongers, increase the likelihood that they impulse buy the microtransaction stuff.

    Basically a case of shaking the moneymakers...

    and I'm expected to be happy about the treatment those game developers give my gender?

    because i'm not.



  • @accalia
    Did I say it was cromulent?

    Now, excuse me, I need to go check on my Valor kingdom... ;)

    (j/k - I don't play those styles of games because they consume way too much time and you can't win without macro-transactioning the microtransactions anyway)

    @accalia Toby fair, I don't remember Zelda being helpless in any of the home console games since LttP (not sure about handhelds).

    Also, I give you the other princess in mainline games, but I hate that pink dress wearing peach in Mario Kart :tangerine:

    @RaceProUK No, it's because boobage is cool and interesting. Sorry, Brianna.



  • @accalia Zelda did an okay job in the worst Zelda game.



  • @Magus Was she even in Majora's Mask?

    tro



  • @hungrier I figured Wand of Gamelon was too sad to even joke about, but I suppose I have a lot to learn about humanity still.

    I don't think you make a business of doing something on purpose that is proven to lose money.

    That said, it does appear that boobs are there to capture market lost from having an intellectually unengaging product.

    Ironically, history has produced times where men were primarily sex symbols, and continues to produce male sex symbols today.

    The times it becomes problematic are when it translates into collateral situations where people are not wanting the attention. Women have seemed to be more of the victim of this. But the concept of sex symbolism is not a bad thing. Certainly the free sex movement was driven by men and women being idolized as sex symbols.

    Nothing like society being unconcerned about a pack of cougars chasing a legally underage Justin Beiber.

    • Ocarina of Time - As soon as Zelda is exposed as being Zelda, she turns completely helpless
    • Wind Waker - As soon as Zelda is exposed as being Zelda, she turns completely helpless
    • Twilight Princess - Already a prisoner when the game starts.
    • Skyward Sword - She actually does plot related stuff in this one.
    • Breath of the Wild - No idea, haven't finished it yet.

    Oh, and we can't forget the handheld games

    • Oracles - Shows up halfway through the second game and gets kidnapped. Gets kidnapped again towards the end of the second game.
    • Minish Cap - Turned to stone near the start of the game
    • Phantom Hourglass - Turned to stone at the start of the game
    • Spirit Tracks - The one game in which Zelda is truly helpful, despite technically being killed at the game's start.
    • Link Between Worlds - Basically identical to what happens to her in Link to the Past.

    @powerlord fair 'nuff, I was mostly going by snippets of info about games since I never really played anything after LttP, but I always saw those "alternate" versions of Zelda (as in, you're supposed to not know it's her, instead it's a ninja/pirate/whatever character) and buttumed they kept it going throughout the game.

    I hear BotW is different, but dunno, haven't played it either.



  • @accalia Play for free now, my Lord!

  • @Onyx As a side note, if you have a 3DS, Link Between Worlds is a direct sequel to Link to the Past.

    In fact, the artwork strongly suggests it started life as a remake of LTTP using 3D assets (but still the top down viewpoint) before being turned into its own game.

    Edit: Most of the world map is the same, although a few locations did change a bit. Dungeons completely changed, even the ones that are ostensibly the same dungeons as LTTP (Eastern Palace and Tower of Hera specifically).
