Retro Game Club Discussion Thread 19: Zelda Oracle of Ages & Oracle of Seasons [community]
 

The lands of Labrynna and Holodrum cry out for a saviour.
The forces of evil are gaining power.
The Triforce summons you.


As Link, take up your sword once more to determine the fate of two worlds, in the Game Boy Colour classics. Wield the powers of the Oracles to traverse time and control the seasons. And link your quests to reveal the hidden truth in an epic meta-adventure that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Primary Discussion Begins on page 3!

@Shadowlink I have the Damage Ring on. Which is probably a mistake because I tend to be reckless in battle, but that just makes it more interesting!

I'm also stumbling over passwords left and right. So I go tell them to NPCs in the Seasons game I just finished and they...do what, exactly?

They unlock extra stuff in Seasons, (which is a bit pointless at that stage), BUT they also give you a reciprocal password to unlock that same stuff back in ages.

Finished level 5 in Ages. Some pretty good puzzles in this game for sure, but that boss was weird and easy to break.

I also think that the fifth dungeon in Ages (the Crown Dungeon, I think it's called) is probably the worst dungeon in the series. Terribly designed.
I retread a LOT of ground in that one, just trying to find places I had seen before. It certainly doesn't flow very well. But it does have a number of good puzzles in it.

Anyone playing Ages get to Tokay Island? I'm not playing it now but man, I'd that's not one of the lowest points in any Zelda game, I don't know what is. I think I remember liking the dungeon after though.
Yeah, what a timesink that was. Is it just me, or is the backtracking more tedious than usual 2D Zelda in these games, especially Ages?

@nate38
I think it's probably because you move so slowly. I just spam Pegasus seeds in the late game.

Beat the 3rd dungeon in Ages. C'mon, Moosh! Let's head up that mountain!

Anyone else hate the special swimming equipment in Ages? Maybe it wasn't so bad with the GBC's D-pad, but neither of the 3DS's control methods accommodate it well. And I just got to the 7th dungeon...sigh.

@nate38
Yeah it was easy as hell with the DPad but I can see it being an absolute pain with a circle pad.
Posted: 06/20/13, 03:52:02
@nate38

Man.... oh, man... I HATE the swimming. It's nearly impossible with the circle pad, so I find myself using the D Pad when swimming, then going back the circle pad when out of the water. Can't wait for this game to be over.

And now I'm stuck in there. I feel like I need to find an upgrade to the Switch Hook but I'm not seeing anything. All I've found are the map and compass. I could also use a key, but I'm finding none of those either.

@nate38

Hah, I remember that level basically being a 2D Water Temple. Good luck!

(that's the next dungeon I need to do...yikes!)
Posted: 06/20/13, 04:26:02
Playing through Seasons right now. I don't like it as much as Ages from what I remember. The constant weapon switching seems much more apparent, especially in the over world. The dungeons have kind of been a cakewalk too. The stuff with Subrosia seems to be the coolest part, so I'm hoping to get more into who the Subrosians are. Other than that, it's feeling kind of forgettable.

Finished seventh Ages dungeon. It's kind of a pain until you get a feel for the layout, then it gets sort of interesting.

Haha, I forgot all about that when I got to it. Didn't read the description properly and was trying to figure out why I was basically not moving. Though my 3DS had busted or something.

Out of curiosity, what's wrong with the D-Pad to control it? @TheOldManFromZelda is right in that it's a bit of a pain switching between on land and water controls, but still....

Did anyone else get the Swimmer's Ring? It does make that entire section a bit more bearable.
Posted: 06/20/13, 11:18:33
Playing Ages right now, entering the third dungeon, and I think I like it a bit more than Seasons, so far.
Posted: 06/20/13, 19:30:23
Now I'M stuck in Jabu's belly. Sigh. This game is the pits!
Posted: 06/20/13, 19:41:34
Ya bunch of weenies.

Skyward Sword. Hero's Song.

Just sayin'.
Posted: 06/20/13, 20:40:17
@GameDadGrant Absolutely agree. Skyward sword had so much padding in general. It was a 50 hour + game and it didn't really need to be.
Posted: 06/20/13, 20:52:26
Beat the belly of the beast. Onto the last essence, or whatever.
