Talk about today's strip, or anything about the comic in general. You can also talk about any of the characters... but don't expect a response. They're FICTIONAL, you guys... sheesh. :)

Bite me, Dean! Ocarina of Time was excellent!

I think you can rate Zelda II next year, though.

And I'm not back. Maybe kinda back, but not like...really back.

I liked Zelda 2.

Semi-related: I've recently begun trying to speedrun the original Legend of Zelda. Honestly surprised at how enjoyable that activity is.

I miss being able to move diagonally on the original Zelda. And while I realise Greg is exaggerating for comedic effect choosing Link to the Past (or Link Between Worlds) over Ocarina of Time is a wholly different thing from saying there's any significant gulf of quality between them.

I need to give Zelda II a fair shake sometime. After finishing Wind Waker last year (thank you Wind Waker HD) it's the last console Zelda I've yet to complete (also on that list from the mobile iterations are the Oracles games — I started one but it just didn't click with me for some reason even though Link's Awakening is very highly rated in my personal rankings — and Spirit Tracks, which I will get back to one day)

No way Link Between Worlds is better than Link To The Past. All the dungeon design was dumbed down and oversimplified, too much handholding was added, and the rental mechanic makes no sense.

The portrait stuff is cool and they made a few good tweaks but a few good tweaks don't make out for boring overly easy dungeons.

So, Does anyone else think he's going to go on a several month hiatus, and then suddenly post "... still pausing..." and the whatever the next game is....

Was it a meta joke that it took this long for Majora's Mask to be the next one listed after the other three? He had to wait multiple days to get to 4th place?

The Werefrog choose to believe that because it makes it funnier. Even better if he waits another month for the next comic, and then Greg just says, "And then Ocaraina of Time".

That would be hilarious, but sadly, we'd do without new comics in the meantime, so the joke wouldn't be worth it.

Unless he did a few comics that involve other characters in between. :D

If only he took your advice instead of the advice of The Werefrog.

I am a bad Zelda fan. I have only played LTtP, Majora's Mask, and Twilight Princess. Like them in that order also. The time travel mechanic in Majora's Mask made me love it and I thought made it one of the best game of the console.

Dude, The Werefrog am a worse Zelda fan. The Werefrog love Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link best of all, followed by Twilight Princess, Majora's Mask, Ocarina of Time, Original, Skyward Sword, then Link to the Past, and the cdi games way way down the list, like a few blank spots before we get to them.

Anyone who rates Zelda II anywhere near the top of the list needs to have a CT scan. It was Nintendo-hard, the side-scroll control were terrible, the HP and MP meters were pathetic, and Iron Knuckle STILL makes me curse! The only point where you achieved survivability was WAY into the game when you finally got up-thrust and down-thrust. This game single-handedly cost me more tears than Battletoads (because I wanted to win at Zelda)!

Iron Knuckles weren't that bad. There's actually a trick to beating them. If you jump, their shield goes to the lower position. Then, right when you land, or are about to land, you attack.

It's the bird versions that a freakin' horrible. The Werefrog still haven't figured out how to beat them.
