Welcome cverz2.

For those of you who don't know, the hosts typically start and finish the playthrough early to sort out checkpoints and ensure that there aren't any snags. We also record our podcast midmonth.

Finished the East Palace yesterday at work. I'm pretty bad at this game so far. It never got me frustrated, but let's just say I had the path from the entrance to the boss pretty much memorized by the time I was actually able to defeat him (them).

The game doesn't get any easier and the dungeons get much more complex. Your best strategy will be to find some bottles and the bug net. Capturing faeries is a real "life-saver" early on.

Bottles are multi-purpose.

I've beaten it at least 3 times and I'll beat it again. I'm in.

Hands down one of the greatest games of all-time, I don't care who you are. An utter masterpiece. My favorite of the series.

It's certainly not an easy game. You'll do yourself a favour by doing some side quests and collecting heart pieces.

So far my experience on the Wii U Virtual Console is that controls are a little floaty or loose feeling. It makes quick reactions or tight room movement a little difficult. I didn't know you could use the analogue stick to control Link. It felt weird when I experimented with it. Nothing beats the good ol D Pad.

I think this game has a very nice level of difficulty. Not too easy, not too hard. That goes for puzzles and combat. There are a few tricky puzzles and a few tricky bosses, but nothing anyone should need a walk-through for (unless you want 100% completion).

I agree, the difficulty is pretty well-balanced.  It get's tougher as you progress, but you also get better items to use, armor/magic upgrades, and more hearts.

That's a really good comment. It's true that you evolve as a player and get better items as the game gets more challenging. Nothing is so out of reach to make someone frustrated. Though I will admit that I loathe the low health sound.

Equally. I don't know why but I just don't like that sound and it makes me feel so frantic.

I had to look that up. It's not as bad as the Pokémon low health sound.
