    Apology too late, at least that was corrected in other Zelda games like Zelda: Twilight Princess

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    I'm just waiting for James Wong to apologize for Dragonball Evolution. And for Andrzej Bartkowiak to apologize for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.

    Am I the only one to think he's subtly making fun of people?

    If people have been complaining about such a trivial matter, I hope he is making fun of them.

    Actually I finished that temple in one sitting when I got there the first time, it was very easy I thought. Then again, I sucked at the Fire Temple at that time [​IMG]

    It wasn't hard, it was just boring. Although I always got through it in one sitting, it was annoying to keep switching boots back and forth.

    Me too....and I still beat the hell outta that game, missing only 1 or 2 full heart containers also...damn I miss that game, and that time in gaming history.

    -Off-topic-
    The PS2 was new, and Tekken Tag was the shit...and I just got Goldeneye, WWF Wrestlemania 2000, and Ocarina of Time, and 4 controllers for the N64.

    Hard? Meh, you could easily get to the boss with a simple glitch after getting the dunnowhatit'scalledagain-shot. Although it's still pretty lame that the item select menu was slow...
