    Why the fcuk did they change the position of the banker in game whats the purpose.
    Also i really miss the old fashion clock than the new digital one. Since the first couple of hours in game i have noticed that nintendo tried to make the game easier than the N64 one.
    Kind of take the magic from it, but i can understand that a lot of people find it hard in the first place.
    But still it would be nice to have 2 modes or someting like that.
    On the bright side i really loved the light blue backround during the horse chase scene instead of the fog effect of the N64.
    What is your opinion?

    There are a lot of surprising changes. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet. I think the most disappointing one I've heard of so far is swimming behavior with the Zora mask on. I, like others, loved the heck out of some zora swimming.

    I'm kinda split tbh. While I do like the updated game, I find stuff like the banker's relocation...interesting. While I understand why they moved him, I really don't get why he couldn't have stayed put. The game does hold it's magic, but I have really been pissed with the magic bubble that the deku scrub shoots. I can't quickfire anymore, gotta wait for it to fill up :( They also shoot much straighter, which is comfortable, and probably better in the end. One last thing that kinda irked me was the how easily you get the Owl song, and how easily you get the bomber's notebook. Just doesn't feel as awesome getting it. The framerate while playing in 3D on the n3DS hurts my feelings since we all know they have the power to support it, but they didn't.

    c-stick, ZR ZL buttons are both excessive, but I'm glad they have support.

    What I loved was finding the bomber kids. new hiding spots had me wondering for the first time running through the game in a looong time :) I obviously love the 3D and updated graphics. Framerate is boosted from the n64 version which is a blessing lol. The new save functions are great, since I don't have to save, or play anymore.

    I have only just approached the swamp temple, so this is just my first impressions for now. Really enjoying it.

    It freezes at the end of the dialogue and you have to hard reset the 3ds.
    At least in European version dont know about usa one

    Had to try it out. It frooze at the end of the dialogue and only had to restart the game via home menu. European version here.

    And a little Off-Topic, but since we are already talking about MM, have anyone else done the The Bomb Business quest? I've done step 1 and step 2 and bought the big bomb bag and the All-Night Mask. Is it bugged or is there more steps? I bought it before I bought the regular bomb bag too. :unsure:

    EDIT: Nvm. Probably because I don't have the biggest bomb bag. Thought there were only one upgrade. :P

    I'm glad they moved the banker...it would of stupid to have him away from the save point. I have not noticed many changes yet beyond the saving, banker moving and getting the notebook from the mask sales men...So far I have done up to getting the notebook lol. I have not had much time lately to play video games.

    EDIT: I quiet playing the gamecube disk once I got the zora mask. I couldn't take the framerate drops while swimming and the lousy mario_kart-ish camera while swimming.

    EDIT2: A list of so far known changes can be found here. LINK

    Them making it a little easier was a necessary evil. One of the biggest complaints I've heard about this game from many different people, Zelda fanboy or not, is that it's too difficult and confusing due to the time mechanic and a number of other things. I personally never finished it as a kid because of this, which really disappointed me, especially after completing OoT. The difficulty curve was too great (as a child)

    I think this was a wise move for Nintendo to make so the game is a little more approachable to newcomers while still holding true to the original. Also, who knows what might unlock after your first clear ;)

    Oh, and another change??? It's in 3d hahaha

    I saw someone playing this on Twitch, and there seemed to be some kind of screen capture system to take pictures--is that new? If so, how do you do that?

    When you head to the swamp and save Kotake, she'll be at the main area besides the Owl Statue, and she'll offer rides around the swamp, part of which leads you to the Deku Palace. Anyways, she gives you a camera to make use of, and with that item, you can take photos in-game, which I think you can take back to the swamp shack and have developed (I'm still trying to figure that out).

    I thought the pics with the pico-cam automatically save to the sd card?

    No, they dont automatically save on sd, though it prompts you to do it if you want.
    The main thing of the camera is to take a picture of a special someone........... i dont want to spoil that for you and return the picture to the photo guy whom will award you with something nice.
    Btw i have finished this game over of 7-8 times and i didn't know till yesterday that the photo guy is Tingle's father, omg

    Dam. less then a week and so many people have already beaten the game. And I just got the Zora mask...I need to find more bottles first. Doing the egg hunt with one bottle sucks. Nintendo should of changed it so one bottle can hold all 7 eggs.

    You could do the goron race near goron village - or ask Koume after you beat the swamp boss if she gives you a ride on her.. boat.
