Nigmabox Rundown (2/05-2/11) Time Travel Is Always A Mistake

tired-link-by-brellom…The Hero is Defeated timeline in the Legend of Zelda annoys me.  I understand the need for a timeline where Ganondorf ran free only to eventually be sealed by the seven sages without the help of Link, but there is an easier way to reach that conclusion.  They could follow the rule of time travel that, whenever something foreign enters a new timeline, it causes that timeline to split off and allows for a new timeline to be created.  So when Link travels to the future, he could end up splitting the timeline just by arriving there.  So in A Link to the Past, the hero could have just never arrived.

Cat Girl Without Salad ~Amuse-Bouche~ Review
