Got to turn it off I'm afraid.

That chat is just StayDead musing on what he thinks the story might be based solely on what was revealed in the trailer, and wider knowledge of the Zelda timeline, and I think it's fairly clearly flagposted as that. I assure you this was recorded well before any story-related footage or info was available beyond the trailer itself.

It probably sounds worse now than it does when we were recording it because that info is now 'out there', so you'd be suspicious about fan theories and whether the fan theorist has heard something from a leak -- but it's clearly not info we had. We were just excited about the hints of story in the trailer and, as Zelda fans, wanted to discuss what some of those hints might mean to us.

Obviously don't listen if you don't want to but I think describing it as 'spoilers' is really stretching the term. I'm a bigger Zelda fan than you fact and I will fight you to prove it (etc), but even I think you have to be quite oversensitive to not want to hear this kind of fan discussion. Mostly because fan theories are almost always wrong -- at the end of the day if StayDead's 30 second off-the-cuff of 'do you think the story is going to head in this direction' was what they actually went with, they'd be paying StayDead to write the games rather than their expensive team of writers. I would be pretty disappointed if the story of this game was something that could be predicted by some guy on the GRcade Podcast.

Of course, if your media blackout extended to even the trailer, don't listen to the podcast. Again, I think that level of media blackout is a bit paranoid, but it's your call.

(I'm not responding because I'm trying to convince you to listen, I don't mind if any particular person chooses to listen or not, I'm just responding so other readers don't get the wrong idea.)

P.S. As Pedz immediately pointed out, StayDead's theory didn't even have a self-consistent internal logic. ;)

It's more that he's a gaffer and their theories are based on a give mind which usually turn out to be spot on. Does the chat about that stop early on so I can skip it?

I can't 110% promise there are no call-backs later, but I think we stop talking about story elements at around 6.55ish, so you'd be okay to jump on there. The section transition is at 14.00ish, and after that we're talking about Mario Odyssey.

There is trailer chat and speculation about Mario Odyssey too, but to a lesser extent than the 5 minutes or so we spent dissecting Zelda (obviously Mario games aren't very plot-heavy!). :)

Cheers Karl. I'm just overly sensitive to stuff like that so I avoid it all where possible. OH MY GOD LINK IS IN THIS GAME RUINED

It's fair. I'm usually quite chill about spoilers, but if I felt Zelda got spoiled by anything I read/heard on here I'd be pretty annoyed, so I do see where you're coming from. :)

My first listen, so well done and good job and all that. Very interesting discussion since I've already purchased a switch - gave me a few pauses for consideration, particularly with regard to the depth of armz. Actually, something just occurred which I'll post in the switch thread...

Is this meant to be StayDead and Super Dragon sounding similar again? :lol:

It's the same bloody person talking and you know it :lol:

One of the voices is just him holding his nose while he talks.

Listened to the Switch one last night, great stuff guys! Found the discussion on the rate information is unveiled on new hardware+software particularly interesting.

And err yeah I'm not seeing the exact similarity in Dragon and Qikz' voices :P

If it does you need a university challenge style buzzer system ever time one of you speaks.
