I've been replaying Zelda games to get me ready for Skyward Sword. And there's always something that bugs me. In OoT and WW certain characters must awaken as Sages and it it annoys me that these guys who have lives and family and friends have to give that all up so they can help Link out... ONCE, and then they don't seem to go back living their normal lives.
I mean look at poor Mido and King Zora. The ones they love seem to be gone forever... why? What are they doing now? Just dicking around in the Sacred Realm? Stuck there because the gods told them to. That sucks!
I never liked the whole idea of destiny, how you have no say in how you are going to lead your life.
Link's like a pawn in the goddesses' game, but that's okay because he's got the personality of a brick. But I feel sorry for leaving Medli down in that dank dungeon to pray. Okay you did your forced job, why do you have to stay down there?
This seems to be illustrated during the ending of Ocarina of Time when everybody is partying in Hyrule - except Link who was sent back in time and the sages who have to sit on a mountain and watch from afar.
At least there's no shortage of Big Goron Hugs up there!

The massive dancing Bigoron always made me chuckle personally.
Didn't the sages get sent back to Hyrule though during the ending? We see them appear on Death Mountain, so it could be assumed once their duties were done, and once Ganon was sealed away, they got to go back to their homes/friends/families. Not to mention Makar & Medli appeared on the pirate ship during the ending to Windwaker, so it's not like they got left behind either.
Y'know, one thing I always found odd about the ending sequence to OoT was alot of the Kokiri villagers were there to. Weren't the Kokiri not suppost to leave the forest, or they would die? Or perhaps, that is stated, because to how dangerous the outside world is, and they would be away from the Great Deku Tree's magical protection.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
