I'm just a u-buffle soldier, lost on a gaming board.

UFFbulle means second hand bun, probably my third oldest nick.

I realized now that it sounded like I was doing a caps lock on UFF, but it's a swedish abbreviation for something that roughly means "help from peoples to peoples in developing countries". There used to be big boxes you could put used clothes in placed here and there but the organization was busted for economic crime.

I miss Dave, but I'm glad that Joe has been able to keep it going.

I watch it while I'm doing Laundry every Sunday. I've learned about so many games through them.

Also a fan of the channel and agree that Joe has done a great job continuing on without his co-host. Learned a lot from that show and genuinely enjoy it.

One of the episodes I particularly liked was the one that focused on modding a consumer CRT to include RGB. That ep was pretty awesome.

I do not miss Dave. Joe has always been the primary point of appeal for me.

I have a copy of Majora's Mask that I got years ago, I thought maybe I should play it but I heard of a 40min or so section at the end of the game that has no saves and if you fail you have to repeat it all over again. An episode on AVGN says you have a 3 hour time limit, saving takes you back in time losing rupees and bombs, no in dungeon saves, you have to wait in game for specific events to happen so you can progress... sounds more frustrating than fun?!

The entire game is built around that 3-day cycle. AVGN probably makes it sound horrible, because that's what AVGN does. Watch a proper review of the game before you decide to write it off or not.

I don't remember being able to save in a dungeon in any of the Zelda games I've played.
