I just started playing my first Zelda game a couple of weeks ago. I am 32 and I started at the beginning. Absolutely it was present growing up, but at this point it felt like I had missed a piece of pop culture. Like having never watched Breakfast Club. 

Nostalgia might keep adults buying the new games, but I think that you missed a very large point, which is accessibility to the genre. Zelda is one of the few properly good fantasy games period, but it's also one of the very few that are kid friendly. Fighting monsters, using magic, and upgrading skills are all things that are generally kept for more advanced RPG Games. Zelda doesn't require the learning curve or the time investment to jump into that fantasy world, which is something that the more casual gamers, and certainly kids are very receptive to.

Fantastic. I just reassigned my bd remote to port 6 and that didn't the trick. Thanks for the fix.

My favorites are both from Avatar. Rufio from Hook (Dante Basco) also being Prince Zuko. As well as Anne from Arrested Development (Mae Whitman) voicing Katara.

I am at the point where all of my news is pretty one sided and it is starting to bother me. I remember being very conservative growing up, and the actions of the Clinton administration bothered me so much even though I didn't understand it.

Now I sit on the opposite side, and I feel like the actions of the republican party feels so anti-democratic. I think that i am better informed now than I was back then, but I guess that it is all just marketing spin anyways.

My views have also shifted more to the left, though I stopped somewhere in the middle of the road. I see some rational arguments come from both sides - hidden amongst the irrational name calling and unwillingness to compromise. I've been lucky that I have parents that are actually pretty rational conservatives that are able to give an understandable rationale for their views, even if I don't agree. Granted, I have plenty of relatives that are very irrational in their conservative views, letting their views be blindly dictated by their xenophobia, homophobia, and hatred of the the Democrats. Not to say I don't know plenty of irrational liberals either. I have met plenty working amongst the design community that are blinded by their desire to be painfully unique and/or to not be their parents, and they like to remind me that they are the black sheep of their conservative family every time politics is discussed, or even if we aren't talking politics sometimes.

My wife and I live in the valley but periodically will drop the kids off and come here for a night or two. We always have great plans for downtown, but more often than not, we end up just staying in at the hotel and lounging by the pool and grabbing drinks at Gallo. A very awesome place.
