@believer258: "The first two hours of KH2" is not evidence enough. What's pretentious about it?

@believer258: How is it pretentious? You complain about points without providing anything that qualifies as a specific example.

@believer258: Actually, it sounds like I can blame you for not playing or at least reading up on Chain of Memories, given that game ties KH1&2 together. Beyond that, I think you'll need to provide better examples of what you're talking about. I'd definitely agree that the KH series in general can be melodramatic, but "up its own ass" is just a lazy descriptor that doesn't say anything other than you personally don't like that it takes itself seriously.

@bisonhero: I figure that Fierce Deity Link will be just an alternate Link skin, if anything, but who knows?

@believer258: Define "up its own ass". If you're talking about the original characters and core narrative, I had no problem with it.

OK, debate time: I always refer to Sheik as a "he", because the Sheik persona is meant to be male (unless I've been reading it wrong and he was always meant to be androgynous). My friend says I am wrong, since Sheik is Zelda and therefore you should refer to Sheik as a she, since in retrospect we all now know who Sheik really is.

Who do you agree with?

I know that Sheik is supposed to be a "he" as part of the disguise, but given that it's still Zelda under all that wrapping, I usually refer to Sheik as a she.

It's been revealed that this week's issue of Famitsu has information on three new playable characters in Hyrule Warriors. Sheik, Princess Ruto, and Darunia are all part of the roster. So not only is Zelda's disguised form a distinct player character, but the roster will also have Goron and Zora representation. I'm holding out hope for Saria and/or Malon as additional playable characters, but those are three solid choices from Ocarina of Time.

Wonder if any of the mechanics from Hyrule Warriors will make it back into the Dynasty Warriors games. I always wanted Koei to put the multi-character system from Orochi and Sengoku to make it into DW.

Also waiting until Hyrule Warriors Empires.

The spin-off titles don't get Empires editions, so you're in for a very long wait.

I Know... But imagine TAKE OVER HYRULE! (Or the context of FREE HYRULE)

Also DW8 Empires was announced I haven't played a DW game since 6 Empires. Did 7 and 8 give characters unique movesets back?

I honestly don't like the Empires games as much as the base titles.

DW7 and 8 let any character use pretty much any weapon, but all characters have an EX weapon that gives them a special combo attack. Characters also have compatibility levels with specific weapon types and can use two different weapons, switching between them at will.

Along with Link's previously announced weapons of the sword and shield and the magic rod, Link had a third weapon type announced: The Power Gloves! And they look bonkers. He can swing a ball and chain. He can pick up giant pillars and swat dudes with it. He can just straight up pick up dudes, or other objecs as well. It's definitely the most colorful of the weapon types he wields, at least of those released so far.

Here's the new trailer with the gloves in action:
