Now I'm in "P". I'm so anxious for September 20. Link's Awakening is one of my favorite Zelda games.

I hated being in "P"

Now I'm in the dungeon section. From the items section there were a lot of potions and effects from Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword that I never had a clue existed.

Today I got into the Chris Houlihan Room on A Link to the Past! I found the easiest method to date. I had never tried that before, but it was a good feeling to experience that legit piece of history.
For anyone not familiar, a kid won a contest in Nintendo Power magazine to have his name in a Nintendo game, and it is in ALttP, as an anti-crash safety room accessible only by weird behavior. It is a water-floor (or maybe it's just blue) one-screen cave room filled with blue rupees and a message from Chris Houlihan. When you leave you come out of Link's front door.

On looking through my virtual console on my Wii Menu (on my Wii U) I realized that I have never played the Second Quest on the original Legend of Zelda. I started that today and beat the Level-1 dungeon where I got the Boomerang, and bought the Blue Candle, and a Big Shield. I really should just start on the NES Online version so that I can do quick saves, but I had a save file on the VC.

I'm playing through the games by release date, and the next game is Ocarina, but I don't know if I want to re-play the 3DS version or maybe wait for an "n64 classic" or Switch VC so I can play it on a big screen.

would be curious to hear how you found it. Playing lttp rando, utilizing the houlihan room can prove very beneficial, especially in more specific modes. The easiest way for me involves the useless fairy drop east of sanctuary. As long as you don't have the flippers, if you walk out the fairy cave, jump into the water four times, then pick up the bush to the drop down of the fairy cave and go in there you're in the houlihan room.

I'm only allowed to use the computer on Wednesdays

Huh, I've never heard of that method. I was wondering what was the earliest way you could get in, and that sounds like a winner, because you could do that right from the beginning. Mine was to use the Pegasus boots to ram the V-shaped group of trees South of the Lumberjacks, then turn around while beginning to run again. That offsets the screen, then you can casually walk to the same Fairy Hole (tee hee) that you mentioned. But you do need to first get the Pegasus boots, which took about a half-hour into the game for me.

I also just found out about Cukemen. That encyclopedia has taught me so much. I think I accidentally created them before (not like I go throwing magic powder on everything for fun), but I never tried talking to one, so I did that today. Interesting.

I did start the Second Quest on the Switch, and that sure helps (somehow I never lose at the money-making game--thanks, rewind feature!), but these dungeons are UNFAIR. Seriously, invisible doors?! I today beat Level 2.

Well this is an inactive region. This post was from SOOO long ago. Anyway, here is another thing to do while you wait for the RMB to exist.

Greetings.

As you may or may not know, Sony has pulled Spider-Man out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This move by Sony has outraged many MCU fans, including myself, who loved all the character development Marvel Studios has done to the character over the past three years. Teenage romance, Tony Stark, Mysterio... I loved it all. And now Sony has thrown all that away just because they want more money.

This is a call to all Spider-Man and MCU fans in NationStates. If this goes through, this could screw up the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline. And, this could screw up other characters. X-Men, Fantastic Four... this whole Spider-Man thing could leave a chain reaction in which the MCU loses several great and interesting characters.

But most importantly... we would be losing arguably one of the best characters in the MCU, and who I honestly thought would become a very important and powerful character in the MCU.

Thanks, I was just waiting for an ambassador to cure my boredom by insulting me.
Does anyone have any opinions about Cadence of Hyrule? It has a free demo in case you want to try it.

did you ever decide?

I'm just emulating it. I've become grown up link and now i have a big sword and have to save the forest child

i'm also reading lord of the rings again which i believe was inspired by zelda in many ways

I think you might mean the other way around, LotR came waaaaaaaaaaaaaay before Zelda.

That can't be right since I played of zelda first

You should read the sequel. It's called Bhagavad Gita.

So it's a trilogy, then?
Zelda, then Lord of the Rings, then Bhadavad Gita? I'll just wait for the movie.

Just 5 days left...

Greetings
;D

Yay, I finally got Link's Awakening for the Switch. I just got to the first dungeon in the hour that I played it so far, but that was mainly due to me being stupid in the Lost Woods. Aside from the obviously gorgeous new graphics, they made a lot of improvements to the gameplay, as well. The thing that stood out most to me was that the Magic Acorn/Piece of Power music isn't obnoxiously loud like it was on the Game Boy version.

The greetings.
