I'm playing the game right now (no, I don't mind the 3D remake, because I don't have a 3DS), and got to that Beneath the Well mini-dungeon. The one where the Gibdos ask for items, you know? Well, every single hint was pretty intuitive, and anybody with braincells could realize what they were.

Then I hit a "deliciously fresh" description. That's rather vague to begin with. I gave up, looked at a guide and... it's a fish?
I wasn't even aware you could catch a fish on a bottle, but how am I supposed to associate "DELICIOUSLY FRESH" with a LIVING FISH ON A BOTTLE? Oh, it says those exact words on the description after you catch him. Well, too bad I never had to ever catch fish in this game before. Not to mention, fishes are completely useless other than progressing this specific part of the story, so I have no reason to EVER catch them.

So far, I don't think Majora's Mask is too guilty of being overly cryptic, once you realize the game expects you to talk to everyone and pay a little more attention to detail (though there can STILL be some bullshit), but this... this is just bad design. I hope they tweak this sort of shit on the remake.

I associated it at the instant i read it.

To anybody who played OoT, how do you know to use the fish to get into Jabu Jabu?? Because to me its just always been common knowledge, like a lot of things in OoT that I just know how to do without the memory of being told how to do it.

If I remember correctly, there were a few times in Ocarina of Time when u had to catch fish in a bottle. Since Majora's Mask is a direct sequel and mostly played by the same people, it must have been assumed the ability to catch fish was common knowledge.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Fresh sounds like fish. That made sense in my 13 year old mind and I solved it then.

And you need fish to get one or two heart pieces.

It stems from OoT, you know, the game that Majoras Mask is a direct sequel of.

Ehh, not that hard. There are worse things to complain about in other games.

When i first started to play Zelda, i was about 5-6 years old, and i couldn't read or speak english. I still managed to figure it out though ( I hated gaming back then, i had to use the dictionary every damn mission lol )
