I actually just completed the Water Temple before I saw this post and am now getting ready to do the Bottom of the Well, but yeah the Water Temple can get very confusing at first if you don’t keep track of what you’re doing. But the more I play it, the easier it is to memorize where everything is.

I’ve been playing a lot of Zelda 2 myself and beat the game many times. Yeah it was pretty cool to do another battle with that shadowy Link in the Water Temple.

I just started my first game of Link To The Past, I played it before but didn’t do much so I hope I have time to explore the game more.

The water temple always ends up taking more time than other temples because there's always that one key I overlook.

LMAO, instead I just walked up to them, took the hit and pushed "through" them in those nanoseconds of invincibility that you are given after a hit. It took me two or three pushes, but the game let me do it.

In hindsight, how funny would it have been to get all the way through that last fight, win and then die walking through fire because I had no idea that the magic sword could extinguish the flames? HAHAHAHHA but it worked, saving me from a horrific childhood experience of frustration and self-contempt. LMAO!
I don't know how I figured to use the sword on the flames to get to Zelda. I've never tried getting rid of flames with the sword anywhere else. I did once try walking through the flames to get to Zelda, and I was surprised that it worked.

What I do remember is that the game was a drag until you unlocked Links upward and downward thrusts which really made the fight mechanics much more enjoyable. Actually now that I type this, I think I remember the game being night and day more enjoyable once you managed to get the super high jump boots or something. That sticks out in my head for some reason.
Zelda II was the first Zelda game I've ever played, and owned. I don't know why I got that first. I had gotten an NES in late 1989, and that's when the Super Mario Bros. Super Show started, and I mostly saw the Zelda cartoon that they aired on Fridays. My cousin was the one who played through the most of it though. He beat the first five dungeons. I tried to find the sixth one on my own, but that took a while. I took the game to his house one day, and he was looking through a magazine that said to play the flute at Three-Eye Rock. We were pretty close to it, and I just grabbed the controller and played the flute there, and the palace appeared. What we didn't know about though, is finding the Magic Key in New Kasuto. So we just got through doors by using the fairy spell. I finished the sixth dungeon on my own, as well as the Great Palace at the end. Defeating the Thunderbird there was a pain in the neck, but then later I realized that my attack level should have been at its zenith. I was just one level below it.

You didn't get super high jump boots in Zelda II. What you got is a spell that made you jump higher. The boots you'd get would enable you to walk on water on the overhead map.

I got that Resident Evil. It's really fun and it looks so good with the ray tracing on. I just kinda wish they moved on from the Ethan Winters stuff. I wanna play as the OG's, man.

Speaking of FF, I'm finding now more than ever I'm wishing for a Parasite Eve remastered compilation of all three games.

First, the first two are selling very well on the aftermarket right now, but I don't want to get rid of my copies.

Second, I've never played the 3rd Birthday

Third, the environment is perfect for remasters.

These are amazing games and although I don't do much gaming anymore, if the PE trilogy got a remaster, I'd be all-in for those.

I know it's a running gag to make fun of your PC around here, but seriously, you're getting like 15 FPS in that video. It even shows in the settings when you're trying to show them off that you're way over your memory budget. Give it up, man.

I finished Resident evil village yesterday. Yes it was better than expected. Took me one week and one day. It had more action than 7 but not as much as 6 and 5. It was just a good game.

It is because i havent found a RTX 3080 yet due to low supply. Most recent upgrade i did was in July when i got the MP 600 2TB SSD(WRITE 4950MB/S READ 4250MB/S) . Since October i try to find a RTX 3000 graphics card but havent found one yet due to low supply. I hope i can find a RTX 3080 or a RTX 3080TI that releases in a few weeks soon.

Can't you lower the level of detail through a settings menu in that game? Maybe you can gain some FPS while you wait for the latest video card.

? just finished Lara Croft and The Temple Of Osiris. It is old game as it was released in 2011 but must say that i liked it more than Shadow of Tomb Raider that released in 2018 becuase Lara Croft And The Temple of Osiris has much more action.

Wow, looks like i've been out of the loop, when did Resident Evil become a FPS? How was it accepted so well that I never read any drama about it

you won't because all the GPUs are being used to mine cryptocurrencies
GPUs actually have a real value now

Plenty of fans don't like it, myself included. Especially after Resident Evil 2 REmake basically perfected the Resident Evil formula in an over the shoulder perspective. Resident Evil is such a goddamn mess, but when Capcom keeps chasing trends to target casuals and newcomers, it's kind of hard to hear any sort of criticism considering how popular the IP is in general.
