Re: The Sword of Truth

Legend of the Seeker is decent for what it is; a cheesy, low-budget, C-grade fantasy show. I personally wouldn't consider a show with a budget of 1 mln per episode a 'low budget' show. What the hell? They got 1mil per episode? I guess they just suck at using money efficiently, then. For 1mil/episod...

Re: The Sword of Truth

I love The Sword of Truth series. I read up until the ninth book, which honestly was pretty uninteresting, but the ones prior to that were top-tier literature, especially the first six. Legend of the Seeker is decent for what it is; a cheesy, low-budget, C-grade fantasy show. The main actors are all...

Re: Final Fantasy

I liked X, but it wasn't one of my favorites. I was really into it the first time I played it, but it doesn't really have any replay value for me. XII was indeed awesome, as well as IV and VIII. Especially VIII. Squall is the shit, whereas Tidus is a pansy.

Re: Zelda Ocarina of Time, Complete Playthrough

I believe it would take a good 20-30 hours at least. The water temple was a real bitch, but not because it was really hard or anything but rather really confusing with all the water levels and well hidden rooms. Is it possible to beat the Shadow Temple without the lens of truth if you remember all ...

Re: Zelda Ocarina of Time, Complete Playthrough

All the dungeons are a lot more complex. The Water Temple was a major bitch.

I'd think you could beat the original in 20 hours or less, though. I remember getting from the start through the Forest Temple in six hours flat.
