What do you think of the game?

I'm not sure yet as I haven't played much into it, but so far I'm enjoying the game. This is the first Zelda game I played so I know nothing of the lore and background information that could enrich the story for me, but that's ok, there's always my pal Google.

The farthest I got so far was dodging an Indiana Jones-style rolling boulder to find a special sword and purchasing a shield in the shop so I can leave the area and hopefully explore the wide world. Must train my moves in the safety of the training ground first...so far my sparring level is classed, 'Utterly Hopeless' (personal classification). I hope to make it to 'Mostly Hopeless' before long.  ;D

Most of the enemies you encounter will require particular strategies to defeat, not so much fast reflexes and sparring skill.

Someone is trying to access my Origin account. I keep getting verification codes sent to my e-mail and have changed my password twice already. ::)

I haven't played a game using that platform in years but it's still extremely annoying that someone is trying to break into it.

Could be someone pranking you. Can they do anything without access to your email though? Might want to change that password too.

Could be...no, they can't access the account without the verification code that's sent to my e-mail. I added that layer of security just now and got a couple of messages warning me that someone was trying to access the platform.

As for my e-mail, they would need to get past a two-step verification process to access it, and they don't have my phone. I checked, it's here with me.  ;D

It seems that most of the old Nintendo games are available on the 3DS. I might be getting in some Mario time...

what would be the purpose of trying to break into a gaming account?  to shortcut to a higher level?

Not necessarily, I think it was just to play the games I had bought and were collecting virtual dust on the shelves.

Indeed - when I owned one, I had a bunch of the older games. Still fun to play!

I never played any of the Kart games. I'm looking at Super Mario Bros 3.

I loved playing Super Mario Bros 3 when I was a kid! Great choice :grin:

Got my Google Stadia.

A bit of laggy response at first, then I tweaked the settings. Seems pretty solid on responsiveness now.

Playing Destiny on it.

I'm supposed to get a free "Buddy Pass" of some sort, but they're not available yet.

Anyone here wanna try it when I get that?
