i remember asking myself, how come i havent played this since middle school? Then i got to the Goron Dance. That makes these games unplayable.
13 Nov 2019
When you will fighting with gohma no damage in zelda season its too unplayable, totaly bullshit, for dance goron its totaly possible but i hate this.
19 Mar 2020
I just now realized that I'll be forced to play this game TWICE to get the rest of the cheevs. Same with Seasons. And I did them both twice already!
19 Mar 2020
I thought that the Bonus Set could count for one playthrough for each game, but no! So that's THREE total per game!
19 Mar 2020
If only Diamond Ring didn't exist... then I could use a Password Generator to give myself Cursed Ring, allowing me to do the Bonus Set at the same time as the Linked Run in THIS Set!
19 Mar 2020
Of course, I'd still have to do the Hero's Caves twice and the Final Lair three times, but that's much more preferable!
19 Mar 2020
Yeah, its crazy. And there is no way I'm doing the worst minigame ever created hundreds of times to get the rings.
20 Mar 2020
Another thing I realized: I have to do the "normal" run FIRST for efficiency... so beating those three dungeons again was for NOTHING!
3 Apr 2020
Well, that's it for the non-Bonus runs! Though I noticed a considerably larger amount of damage being taken in later dungeons than I will be able to afford...
23 Sep 2020
Could someone explain what should I do on "Diamond Ring"? It wasn't clear to me.
23 Sep 2020
Complete your ring collection as much as possible without ever using a Ring Secret.
29 Sep 2020
Thanks, ShadwSonic!
29 Sep 2020
Now, one more question. How do I enter a linked game on an emulator? I'm currently using RetroArch.
29 Sep 2020
At the end of a non-linked game, you get a password. Enter that in the other game.Alternatively, use a password generator.
10 Oct 2020
Oh boy.. this is frustrating.. so I beat seasons, linked to ages and I start with 4 hearts instead of 3.. so that means I don't be able to get that trial cheevo right? Am I gonna have to play both games twice to get everything???
1 Feb 2021
For the Diamond Ring achievement: I was told the GBA Nature Ring is necessary, but I'm not sure how it's possible to obtain this ring without the password. Can someone explain?
29 Mar 2021
Goron Dance was only in Ages, Seasons has a much easier version called the Subrosian Dance, but either way dont let it get you out of the mood to play you ony gotta do it 2 times and then never again, you dont even have to do the Subrosian Dance.
29 Mar 2021
Also if you play a linked game the trial becomes a much harder trial you dont need to do in seasons, in ages a new cave appears. These act as that games special post game linked dungeon, you need like every item to get through it
29 Mar 2021
You need a password from Seasons to get that ring, so either look it up on the internet or play seasons, its in the gba shop
2 May 2021
some cheevos are insane! why beat a boss whitout taking damage? the game doesn't count it! some cheevos must be on the harder set!
