Good day, all you wonderful people! Today, there's absolutely nothing to talk about in regards to the FFVII Remake, or FFXV. I've already said my two cents on them. If I were to talk about them right now, I'd just be all: "YAAAAAAAAAAASSSSS!" and start foaming at the mouth. So, instead of Final Fantasy, I want to talk about a franchise that I've played for quite some time: The Legend of Zelda. I've only played a few games from this series: Four Sword Adventures, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Zelda I, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, my personal favorite Twilight Princess, and Wind Waker; in that order. Four Sword Adventures was my first Zelda game. However, I never completed it; like five others on the list. As for the four games after that: My brother and I had a collector's edition disk for our Gamecube, which is how I got to play those. Like Four Sword, I never finished them; Even the 3DS versions of OoT and MM are incomplete. Zelda I and Zelda II are my least favorite bay far; I got lost so many times that I just rage quit. See, guys, I actually found the fifth temple;which was pitch dark. Turns out I needed a candle. So, I wander about for a bit until I come across an old lady in a random cave. Lo and behold: She's selling candles for 200 Rupees (Or less. I can't remember). I stared at the screen, and then I reset and played the Wind Waker demo. That was the last time I ever even attempted Zelda I. As for Zelda II...Well let's just say that the battles were a tad too jarring for my taste; I quit after running into five battles. Twilight Princess; one of my all-time favorite games ever. I could go on for ages about it. However, I'll show some restraint here; if I don't throw caution to the wind first. What is it about this game that I absolutely adore? For starters, the wolf mechanic was pretty damn cool in my opinion. I loved changing into Wolf Link and running around Hyrule Field. Also: Running around the Castle Town and scaring the shit out of everyone is fucking fun. That had to be said. Besides the wolf stuff, the moves that the Hero's Shade teaches you are absolutely glorious! Especially the Finishing Blow and the Hurricane Spin; I used those all the damn time. The main characters were great, the story was great, and even some of the dungeons were great. Some of them. The Snow Peak Ruins and the City in the Sky were absolute hell. No, Yetto, I will not give you shit for your soup. The Ruins have virtually no redeeming qualities Unless you count the FFVII-inspired snowboarding mini-game that takes you there. The City in the Sky, however, has a fucking dragon for a boss; that is the only redeeming quality for that dungeon. This game is amazing. However, I will admit one thing: It hasn't aged all that well. The textures are all muddy and gross-looking, the models are borderline low-poly, and the bloom effect that Nintendo did for the Twilight Realm is too much. Thankfully, there's a remaster to play. To be honest though, I don't think I'll be getting it. Because one: I don't have a Wii U, and two: They've remastered the Gamecube version of the game; which I've played, and finished, eight times. Besides that, I want a PS4 with the passion of a thousand suns. Unlike Twilight Princess, The Wind Waker was something new for me. Everything in it was cute, brightly-colored, and highly atmospheric with some cartoonish comedy sprinkled in. It's cell-shaded art style was quite amazing to behold; especially after staring at TP's muddy colors for several months. Back when it first came out, everyone tried roasting this game because of how it looked. Honestly though, I really like it. Granted, I never finished it because I got stuck. The King of Red Lions kept telling me to "Seek knowlege from the people of the sea!", and that still makes no sense to me. Back when my brother and I still had the Gamecube (He sold it without asking first....Asshole.), I didn't have a laptop to search for walkthroughs. So, as I previusly stated, I never finished the game. Well, guys, that's about it for me today! I hope you enjoyed this long-winded ramble about Zelda games. I'll catch you guys and gals later!
Beware the ides of March, for a tetrad of road-tripping dorks is coming your way! What I mean to say is that there’s gonna be some huge Final Fantasy XV news on March 30th. It’s all gonna go down in LA at 11:00AM Pacific Time. So, to all of those fans in Europe and Australia: I’m sorry you guys have to miss it. Granted, I’m damn sure there are a few of you who are crazy enough to stay up for it. More power to those people. So, I watched the Active Time Report yesterday. From what the guys said, the game is nearing completion; which makes them capable of providing a release date. They’ll give us that information at this event. What’s also gonna be at this event is a tech demo for the game, which will most likely bring to light the development process of this game. Of course; I doubt they’ll be able to squeeze in a decade of development time into one video. For those of you who don’t know, Final Fantasy XV began development under the XIII moniker as “Final Fantasy: Versus XIII” . After the XIII trilogy was panned by gamers and critics alike, Square decided to make this game a stand-alone title. Thus, XV was born. Shortly before the change, this game went under the radar for five years, which pissed of some people. Then, they showed it at E3 2013 with better graphics, new characters, and a new story; it was also shifted to the PlayStation 4. Fast forward to Episode Duscae, the official demo for XV. Fans praised it, save for a few minor hiccups. The developers actually listened to the feedback and tweaked everything that was wrong. BAM! Now, this game is finally nearing the end stages of development. I’m so fucking ready for this game, guys! With that said, I'm out. Peace!
