Hyrule Warriors just makes me want Persona Warriors. It would work so well. Armies of shadows, red shadow Generals and Outpost Captains, Persona attacks as special moves, and a selection of awesome characters to play as from across all four games. 

I didn’t know I wanted this until now.

This reminds me of several game ideas I had over the 2000s, honestly.

Dynasty Warriors + your franchise of choice is always a pretty reliable formula for exciting ideas. I’m surprised there aren’t more crossover games to be honest.

Cia’s design is so horrible. Her helmet is great and when I could only see her portrait in battle, she looked really cool. Then she appeared in cutscene like something out of Soul Calibur with massive tits and no clothes. It’s so unnecessary, and more so than that just doesn’t belong in the game with the Zelda characters at all. At least Lana’s design is just rubbish because it looks out of place, not disgusting and gratuitous. 

Out of curiosity, what was it that drove you crazy about Wind Waker? Was it the boating? If so there's nothing as bad as that.

No I enjoyed the sailing, at least when it was my own choice to. What annoyed me was the tedious game lengthening that resulted in stuff like “get the arrows to get to the mountain to get the bracelets to get to the island to get the music to go back to Medli to take her to the island to do a dungeon to restore the Master Sword a little bit. (then do it all again with the little tree guy) Also, you need to find the charts to find the Triforce shards, one of which is on a ghost ship which requires it’s own chart, and don’t mention the rupee farming to get them all translated”

It absolutely destroyed the pacing, especially when it comes after the stuff in Hyrule Castle, and it follows such a loose and ill explained logic that I just found myself wandering aimlessly when I should have been involved in a tense act 3. Then there’s the fact that late game dungeons required more items than you can fit on the control scheme and switching them around ruins any flow you might have had. It just felt so bloated and bogged down in an effort to be bigger. One of the shards required me to go to the school and get the deed from the teacher but before I could do that I had to find the camera for the kids and then play hide and seek with them, and all of this is just to get one shard in this huge unnecessary search. If Wind Waker was four to five hours long with half the items I’d have loved it. 

Made a lot more progress in Ocarina today and had no problems with the N64 this time, which was nice. I totally get how this game captured so many people. I find Super Mario 64 an incredibly awkward game to go back to, but Ocarina seems really successful in what it attempts to do. So far I haven’t encountered any of the things that drove me crazy in Wind Waker, though there is still time. 

Persona 4: Dancing All Night is kind of everything I hate about where Persona 4 has gone since the original game. And yet, it’s so stupid that I love it. 

I hope Mido appears as an enemy general in Hyrule Warriors. I’ve played about an hour of Ocarina of Time and would love to be able to shut him up properly. 

Expected Triad Wars to be multiplayer only since I heard the name, and now that that seems to be the case I’m definitely disappointed, even if I knew it was going to happen. Sleeping Dogs was probably in my top two favourite open world games on 360 and I’d have loved a follow up that kept exploring that story and space.

It’s everything it says on the tin, Dynasty Warriors packed with Zelda characters, references and charming details. It’s probably not going to convert anyone who doesn’t enjoy Warriors games, but for anyone that does it’s an extremely polished and well presented one with a lot of cool stuff to see and have fun with.

Hyrule Warriors is so damn good.
