Hope Has a Place by DarklordIIID Hope Has a Place by DarklordIIID

Came up with this one shortly before the release of Breath of the Wild. :) I’ve since started playing, put in probably 12 hours this weekend and I absolutely love it, I’ve not gotten sucked into a Zelda game this bad since Twilight Princess.

Anyway, this is a bit of a recycle. I’ve recently gotten my hands on a GTX 1080 and so I’ve been sticking a lot of time into a lot of video games lately, heh. Naturally not great for the productivity. But I’ve got a few things in the pipes.

In the meantime, here’s a quickie: a very tender moment in the aftermath of Link’s adventures. Just trying to get back to good old normal life. :)

Thanks for looking everyone!

Again, another beautiful moment forever framed in time. The sunlight coursing over these two, off in th corner and away from the struggles of the world, is a beautiful touch.

Thanks! :D Glad you liked this one, the Ilia works never seem to get too much love but I can't help it, she's one of my favorite characters. Plus quality work of her is so hard to find.

Amen dude, she's a great babe who was doomed when Midna showed up. I mean, who could compete with that?

But yeah, glad to see she's getting more love dude.

She has her own charms though, like not leaving at the end of the game. :lol:

This is cute, but I'm a diehard ZeLinker.  Don't get me wrong, I do think LinkIlia is a sweet pairing, well-hinted at.  I also like Ilia's side-quest in the game.  I'm just alot more partial to Link being with Zelda, it just feels like destiny.

Anyway, great work, man.  Well done and rendered.

I do like Zelink too, don't get me wrong (I should do more of that actually) but I always got this vibe that the relationship Zelda and Link have is less like a romantic one and more like Max and Furiosa: more of brothers in arms than lovers. But yeah, I don't diss any of the pairings and don't (intentionally) ship any couple more than another.

And thanks!

Well, that's kinda a bad example for me, since I don't know anything about Mad Max.  Any other comparisons?

Yeah, there are certain times when even conflicting couples can give a fan good vibes.  Sometimes it's easy to just let aside the shipping you don't ship, sometimes they're equally cute, or something.  That can make it hard for some of us, eh?

Also, no prob, buddy.

I can't really think of one but I'm sure you've seen the relationship in various movies and games: two people who are in "love" but not romantically, just a massive mutual respect and admiration and willingness to throw themselves on a grenade for the other should the need arise. 

I don't (at least intentionally) tie myself to any one ship either, I can usually find something to like in any of the proposed couples. :)

Oh, you know what?  I actually do have the perfect example, now that you describe it that way.  (As much as I hate to even mention their names together...) Katara and Zuko from Avatar are just like that, she forgave him for the past of him and his people and warmed up to him as a friend, and he almost died by taking a lightning bolt for her (and I mean literally).  Yet they just remained friends.

Yeah, that much I figured about you by now.  Up until recently, I didn't think that was a thing, looking at multiple shippings' positive sides.  I always thought it made more sense to ship just one and give support. These days, I'm kinda "in the middle" of the two (for some things at least), but hey they say it's never too late to change your attitude.

I replaced a pair of 770's. They served me well but with newer games not supporting SLI plus just the ravages of time, they had earned a retirement.

yea, sli or cross fire (amd) is only double it, but i find kind useless when i play crysis back then with a minimum requirement and my computer back then still shuts down (sometimes on very low settings) if crysis pc. gamespy's server hasn't die, i would have still be play it but with my current computer now with my mayflash wii u (pro) controlller adapter on xinput (xbox 360/one controller) mode.

SLI also seems to break down a LOT more than the conventional wisdom would make you think. Each time GeForce Experience updated the drivers it would reset the SLI settings, then next time I booted up a game it would run at a garbage framerate until I (quickly and angrily) realized what happened, closed it out, re-enabled SLI and got rolling again.

All in all, love my new 1080. :D

maybe that was happen to me back when i got a pc rig for playing crysis 1 on very low settings and never bother to check it. now i have a single geforce gtx 970 and play other 3rd party game on the pc is quite fun (usually playing it offline, most of the time). i got a "shield tablet k1" too, wifi remote desktop streaming is okay on a low end dual band ac wifi router on the 5ghz channel (due to everyone in my family using it). i'm thinking of buying a "nvidia shield android tv" box so i stream my pc to any hdtv in my family's house.
