    I’ve got a few things on my mind, so bare with me.

    First off, I respect Tom’s comment about quality vs. quantity when it comes to putting content on the site. Being short on staff to help keep the site up has to be stressful (I wouldn’t know because I don’t run a website). Plus, running two businesses, married, and raising a kid takes up a lot of your time, and I can really relate to that because I’m in the same boat. I’m married, I have a 2 year old daughter (with twins coming in 6 weeks), I work 40 hrs. a week with a hour drive to and from work. When it comes to free time, it’s a premium for me. So in short, I understand that there’s not going to be new content released daily. But, what I would like to see is content released on a regular pace, like bi-weekly or something. That way everyone can plan ahead and do what is necessary to release quality content on the site. If more people sign on to help run the site, you can adjust the time table to release content more frequently if you want. But for now, a more regular pace would be helpful.

    Second, I’m a fan of the Zelda series (maybe borderline fanboy of sorts), but I think that it would be ambitious, innovative, and freakin’ sweet if Nintendo did release a Zelda game that was influenced by Skyrim. A more open Hyrule, with all sorts of things to do (crafting, side quests, etc.), would be awesome. Plus it fits the Zelda series because no two Zelda games are alike. Each Zelda game is unique in it’s own way.

    And last, but not least, motion sensor Link is really more a learning curve rather than a hindrance. I’m currently playing Skyward Sword right now, and it was difficult for me to get used to motion sensors. Once I got comfortable with them, it didn’t really annoy me anymore. However, I do agree that there should have been an option to where gamers can choose between button-mashing or motion sensors. Hopefully Nintendo will put that option in the next Zelda game.

    Otherwise, this Prototype podcast was pretty good. For me, I like A Link to the Past and the Gameboy Zelda games (which I do own Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, took me ten years to do it though lol). I didn’t play the CD-i games because I didn’t have one and I’m glad that I didn’t.
