There’s still lot I want, like english PS2 versions of certain Fatal Frames or Silent Hills or physical copies of certain PS1 games that I have digitally…. hopefully someday!

The Legend Of Zelda Collector’s Edition (2003)

The Legend Of Zelda Collector’s Edition is a compilation of several installments from The Legend of Zelda series. It features both games released for the NES and Nintendo 64, with the former including revised texts fixing the original mistranslations, a demo of The Wind Waker, and various promotional videos.

In the United Kingdom, the Collector’s Edition was available to GameCube owners who mailed Nintendo proof of purchase of one of several selected GameCube games, including The Wind Waker, F-Zero GX, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, 1080° Avalanche, Mario Party 5, and Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem. Consumers could also send proof of purchase of two titles from the Player’s Choice range to receive the game.

 Although the game mentions “sound irregularities” on the disc as a result of emulating Majora’s Mask on the GameCube, no mention is made of the game freezing. This is a common issue encountered less often when not using the rumble function. The framerate of the Collector’s Edition version of Majora’s Mask is also lower than the 20 FPS framerate of the original game. 

The problems could be caused due to the game’s reliance on the Expansion Pack. Majora’s Mask also presents a high number of graphical issues, such as the blur effect commonly used during cutscenes either not disappear or not loading entirely. As Ocarina of Time does not use the Expansion Pack used by Majora’s Mask, less problems occur. It, however, does experience some minor emulation issues, such as lens flares and other special effects not appearing. 

Both games also experience another issue. Under normal circumstances, opening the inventory menu will capture the screen and add it to memory before opening the menu so it can appear on top of the game screen. Emulators have difficulty adding this image to the memory, thus, the game will appear to freeze for a couple of seconds before the menu opens up. While this image is being removed from memory as the menu is closed, the game also freezes for a short time.

For the videogame ask, ACE?

  • A: Favorite Game of all time?

Eternal Darkness Sanity’s Requiem. On of the best horror games I’ve played, great atmosphere, replayable (with a bonus ending if you face all three Ancients on three playthroughs) and you’re never helpless. And I’ve yet to find another games that messes with the player to that degree.

  • C: Least Favorite Game of all time?

 Fable 2. Some gaming sins I can forgive. Being on the verge of avenging my sister, the main focus for the game, only to have an NPC take out the final boss in a single hit is not one of them.

  • E: Favorite Sequel?

Please don’t make me choose between Persona 4 and Persona 5. They’re both very precious to me.

The History of Nintendo: Taking Risks

The GameCube had already given us a lot of great content in its early years: cowardly ghostbusters, ant-sized captains, a new Smash, and the first Mario since the mid-‘80s to feature the plumber doing his actual job. But this console was far from showing us its best work.
