Besides, I think we should be getting over OoT rumours by now... the game is over 6 years old.
Yes, but people still have rumors about Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross connections, if you've ever seen any in-depth Chrono Trigger message boards. (I forget what the one with the member Zeality is called, but his message board is amazingly detailed with ideas.)
Agreed. Storyline connections are quite a different kettle of fish. I love the way any discussion about the Zelda storyline theories quickly descends into a small war... a micro-version of what happens when competing theories on the Bible (or indeed any religious text) collide. People get way too uptight about them.

Fryguy's right - it's like the game series becomes some sort of religious text, and it's cult follwoers become split over how to interpret it... bizarre how that happens.
For example, has anybody browsed through the nintnedo.com forums for Zelda (or any series for that matter)? It's a madhouse over there! People obsess over little details over what are supposed to be FUN GAMES.
On the topic of the new Zelda screenshots, which may or may not be real, one person aggressively stated that they would NEVER play another Zelda game on account of the clothes Link wears in his village...
People get stuck on something and can't accept change and evolution. WW had a different style, and received criticism. You have to ask why?
Moral of the story? If you want a cohesive storyline, play Metroid - all the games fit together nicely. If you like Zelda games, then accept that at this stage Nintendo wants no cohesive storyline - maybe in the future they'll attempt to fill in some of the gaps, but until then, we'll just have to agree to disagree.
This public announcement brought to you by the good people at Andronicus Ltd. We care about you're gaming questions! *Andronicus Ltd. tune* ;D
I've hammered my way through all of the Zelda games bar FSA and TMC (I will be purchasing them both, and consequently playing through them after my uni exams this week), and I can safely say that an over-arching storyline is lacking.
Sure there are refrences, but they only serve to disjoint the whole story further. It's as if the regular series now runs almost alongside the Four Swards series, but there is also overlap.
But it doesn't matter - Zelda games are great for what they are.
All we need is an on-line DS Zelda game, followed by a massive on-line Revolution Zelda game... ;D
Gaming surprises? I'll have to wait and play to find out why...
And DIU - I do mean an on-line FS game - co-op over the "international network" or battle, but in full 3D - I think it would sell sell sell! You don't seem to like the idea, but I think it would rock as the next step in FS multiplayer gaming. Think about it - 4 people from around the world trying to figure out how to complete the same dungeon - it would be pretty cool (this is, of course, what I think).
As for epic quests - of course they are the main priority - and, yes, they should be single-player all the way.

When I was playing FSA with my girlfriend, there was one point where I suddenly clicked and realised what we'd been doing wrong. I asked her to silently follow me as we ran around and solved the puzzle.
While I like the idea of online Four Swords, Nintendo has to make sure I'm able to talk with anyone directly, giving commands, etc.
But online would finally solve my little problem of not having anyone to play the majority of my multiplayer games with

There is that exact argument for every single online game, though. For example, I'd love a online SSB. It would be great. But if I had a choice between playing Olnine and playing with people in the same room, I'd definately go with the same room. Nintendo need to include a way of talking to people to help online feel like you are playing with friends at home... other wise it'll be kinda useless.
What do you mean about the Minish Cap? I haven't played FS but have nearly finished TMC. (Damn Vaati.)
You either avoid the spoiler entirely, or you say it and then go "whoops, I suppose that's a spoiler then!"... frankly I'm not bothered. I'll leave that little rule to be developed by you guys. However, I don't want to see a load of hard returns making your post twice the length of the screen... that's just ugly.
Don't spoil it for me, please. I want to play through TMC and experience it for myself - it's part of the fun of Zelda games.
If you have to spoil, could you start a new "Spoilers" thread, or something? Unless it's a small spoiler that doesn't givee away much story or any big secrets.
We can make this like a little common law system (one of the things Australia and the UK have in common - no pun intended - the rules of the forum will naturally evolve through decisions made by the forum users, each decision building upon precedent. Or... maybe... not. ;D
