Hey, guys. I was just wondering what your thoughts were on The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass.
I've never played it, and in general, I tend not to get too interested in the handheld Zelda games. Even when Phantom Hourglass first came out, I was never able to get too excited about it. Considering that the general opinions I see online tend to be lukewarm, I figured I wasn't missing much.
However, I've been considering getting it on the Virtual Console, and since it's on sale right now, I thought I'd see if you guys thought it was worth checking out.

Both make a heavy use of the stylus. Make sure your GamePad has a decent screen filter.
I liked Phantom Hourglass for its riddles, its weapons, its input novelty and your allies. Plus we finally got to slay Pols Voices the way it was intended! But Spirit Tracks had better controls and more interesting mechanics and field navigation. It also had its own unique musical instrument.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

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.
