Recently beat: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D (9.5/10)
Next to Link's Awakening, Majora's Mask is my favourite title in the Zelda series. Despite having an N64, I originally played the game emulated, so the 3DS remake is the first time I can say I actually own the game. And it's still one of my favourite games in the franchise. The story is still great, the dungeons are still a blast, etc., etc. The biggest issue I had was how they completely ruined Goht, the greatest boss in Zelda history, by making it so you couldn't beat him solely with the Goron form. Turning an awesome, high-octane boss battle into...a really tedious one. But Gyorg is a much better boss fight, so...trade off? Beyond Goht, every other change was a pretty good one, though I wish they kept the glitch that allowed you to enter Sakon's Hideout after the time as passed. I liked using it in the original so I could say good night to Romani and Cremia before finishing up the Anju/Kafei plot. You kept a lot of the glitches in the OoT remake, so what the heck, Grezzo?

Currently playing: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
During the free game promotion that came along with Mario Kart 8 back in 2014, I chose to get The Wind Waker HD instead of Pikmin 3...I ended up getting the Nintendo Selects version of the latter and 100%ing that with zero deaths before even touching The Wind Waker. I ended up 100%ing Twilight Princes HD before touching The Wind Waker. Several 3DS and Wii U games have came and went without me touching TWW. I don't know why I've been avoiding it. Through watching LPs, the story is one of my favs in the mythos. I think Tetra is the best Zelda in the series. But with Breath of the Wild coming next month, it's time to force myself play this game before touching that one. If only so I can say I'm going into BotW having beat every home console Zelda title. (Getting BotW on Wii U, btw. No plans to get a Switch before summer, and I refuse to get spoiled on story as a result of prolonged waiting.)
