Tried it again later and it worked that time... not sure wtf that was all about. Got to the start of Chapter 7 before I called it a night.

Is this right after the the forbidden forrest part? I just beat the boss there and I thought it said something about the tower of gods up next...

Also with the sword, can't you do something back on your home island for the sword guy there to get some type of upgrade?

once you place the 3 pearls that you've acquired, thats the next level...i hate that dungeon...its just poorly designed imo. boring and annoying.

so you get master sword after 3 pearls and then the boring tower level? Is there something with the triforce in this one, I really don't remember any of this too much

Is there anything in the recent games that is reminiscent of finding the 67 map pieces in Wind Waker?

I'm playing Twighlight Princess right now, and the answer is no for that one.

by giving the fish in each square some bait, do you get something in Wind Waker for unveiling the entire map?

1. I think you go back to the swordmaster for additional teachings
2. the triforce comes into play when you place the 3 pearls (also, if you notice the map on tetras wall in her cabin on the pirate ship)
3. map pieces in windwaker remind me of the skulltulas in OOT...not really worth my time because the benefit doesnt outweigh the time put in.
4. i dont remember what you get for the entire map, but i dont think its anything worth the time, iirc
5. eddy, make sure you double back to the island where the pirates kidnapped the bomb shop worker....the auction house has a speed sail...it will save you a ton of time.

I must not be here yet, because I have no idea where this is. I didn't even know there was an auction house...

edit: oh, nevermind the place on windfall where I first got the original sail.

just read about it, don't know if it's new or not, but you can get it after 1st dungeon and it's twice the speed and wind is always at it's back. I'm going there first thing next time I turn on the game.

Yeah, I read that the Swift Sail is new in the Windwaker HD. Also read why it wasn't in the original, and why sailing was slow, was the Gamecube didn't have enough memory to build the ocean if you were sailing at a fast speed, but the WiiU can. So that is why they added it, and that is why sailing was slow in the original.

That is a total gamechanger for me.. The slow sailing irritated the crap out of me.

I almost ordered NHL yesterday but then decided that I was done with it. AC and Arkham Origins will be the next two games I get and that will probably happen in the Spring.

How did those people find that glitch to go from Queen Gohma or whatever to ganon's castle. Craziness.

That article is amazing. I would never have the patience to do what those people do. It is crazy how they find those things, and the insane amount of hours playing those games. Wow.
