Eagle Tower might be the one dungeon where I felt it was wasting my time a tiny bit, but that's the only one.
Yep, it's the only one that is slightly maze-like (I hate mazes) which is one of the reasons Link's Awakening is so good.

Do Mentally Ill Tracy potions count as dying, for the good ending?

The good ending, if it's the same as the GB version, is so marginal that it is absolutely not worth it

I know, but now it's sitting there saying "HAH LOSER DIDN'T DO IT PROPERLY".

I quite like the idea of giving hard mode + good ending a shot.

The color dungeon thing was new to me this playthrough (I had only played the original GB version previously). Really sticks out as badly-designed bullshit.

I chose the red cloak. Maybe the blue one for the hard mode playthrough, although I'm not sure if better offense might actually work as better defense (by killing enemies quicker).

Yeah the Colour Cave is shockingly shit

I also miss the incredibly funny art that you used to get from the photographer, which I know was in the colour version but can't remember if it was in the original. They replaced him with Dampe, which is - pffft - a Dampe squib

Yeah, those photos are great. Love the couple of scenes with Marin on the beach in this game. The entire story basically hinges on those being so affecting. None of it would come together if Marin wasn't so likeable. As it is, even knowing how the game ended beforehand, it was still very touching when I finished the game last night.

The wonderful end credit's music helps sell the simplicity of the ending too. Don't click it if you're playing through the game as it should ideally be experienced in context. Might be my favourite ever LoZ ending theme, though. It has so many wonderful moments.

Started playing LttP for about the third time. Well better than this I reckon. Cunty lil map and shit performance. Shame. Waste of fifty quid. Wish I could shave up my Switch with one of those ham slicers and put the bits in envelopes and post them to future me to remember what a fucking dickhead I was.

In the original game I'm almost certain you can break sequence after dungeon 3.

Yeah, I remember wanting some items before others and doing it in another save

Not going to play this, but I'm going to play either Link's Awakening or A Link To The Past.

Which?!

I honestly think it depends on what you want from the experience. Awakening is more streamlined, not an inch of fat. LttP has better items, more secrets, better dungeons. They're both fantastic, so you can't really go wrong.

*I've only played the Awakening remake, though, so I'm not sure how much it was improved by the quality of life changes.

Whatever you can get! I like the 2D version, played it on the OG GameBoy Pocket, the 3DS in colour version looks good?

The only QoL changes that really matter in the remake are items mapped to buttons, better warping and the removal of the interminable "you have touched a rock, now let me tell you a long story about rock touchery" message. The original is still great to play, I'd play that before the remake just to experience a classic in its original form.
