    Default progresss: end of day 4

    link to the past:
    - 13 heart containers
    - Titan's mitt acquired
    - sword upgrade: tempered - level 3
    - crystals: 1, 2, 4
    - fire rod acquired
    - items: bow, level 2 [red] boomerang, hookshot, bombs, magic dust, lantern, hammer, bombos, quake, net, green book, 3 bottles, mirror, fire rod, cloak of invisibility, fourth and final bottle

    pretty big events in the last hour.
    i'll probably be able to finish the entire thing before i go to the movies tonight.


    as you can see, by the panel on the right, the three lit crystals, which ordinarily light up clockwise, are not in order. this is because i still haven't finished the third dungeon. i just went in after beating the fourth and getting the cloak when i decided to take a break and eat. after a while, [and still having taken no break] i had gathered the fire rod using no keys, and headed straight for the boss. haven't gotten there yet.
    i collected one key though, and am about to use it to open door number one, thereby shaving a very large part of what would otherwise be a very convoluted [literally -- i remember this part of the game and hate the under-bridge maze] leg of the dungeon off my itinerary.

    anyway, the point of posting the picture is to display that you can indeed get the cloak of invisibility before finishing the third dungeon. you can get it before finishing the fourth too, but i didn't.
    as it turns out, what's necessary is to.

    my reasoning behind finishing the fourth dungeon sooner than the third other than to prove that it can be done, and that i don't like doing it how i'm sposta, is that the third dungeon is, has been and always will be a pain in the ass for me. if you can get the fourth one finished, you get Titan's mitt, which, through a series of subsequent events involving world-shifting, opens the doorway for acquisition of the Tempered sword.
    that sword makes tough bosses and monsters real easy. it's twice as powerful as the Master Sword, being that is has been engineered on top of the god-willed sage's enchantment.

    I actually started LttP yesterday. Got the three medallions so far. Every so often I get the urge to play old SNES RPG's like Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana and Link to the Past.

    I found this amusing - a musical based on the Legend of Zelda.

    Huh? Wind Waker is fantastic!

    Well, except for the prolonged search for pieces of the triforce near the end, but otherwise it is one of my favourite in the series. And the art style is great, in my opinion. From the wisps of smoke and swooshes of wind to the movement and lighting, it's a comprehensive package crafted with the greatest care.

    If real life deserved that much credit, I wouldn't have bothered playing Wind Waker.

    "and that windwaker nonsense"



    Are you kidding, Windwaker was awesome. If you can't get past the graphical style you are being closed minded, give it a chance, once you get into it, it's great.

    In the years that come Windwaker will age gracefully, more than Twilight Princess.


    BTW, Windwaker was highly touted in Japanese Famitsu magazine getting a perfect 40/40.


    wiki:

    Only eleven games so far have received perfect scores. They are listed in chronological order:

    1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998, Nintendo, for Nintendo 64)
    2. Soulcalibur (1999, Namco, for Dreamcast)
    3. Vagrant Story (2000, Square Co., Ltd., for PlayStation)
    4. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (2003, Nintendo for Nintendo GameCube)
    5. Nintendogs (2005, Nintendo, for Nintendo DS)
    6. Final Fantasy XII (2006, Square Enix, for PlayStation 2)
    7. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (2008, Nintendo, for Wii)
    8. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (2008, Konami, for PlayStation 3)
    9. 428: F?sasareta Shibuya de (2008, Sega, for Wii)
    10. Dragon Quest IX (2009, Square Enix, for Nintendo DS)
    11. Monster Hunter Tri (2009, Capcom, for Wii)


    Games that received a near-perfect score of 39 include:

    1. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (1991, Nintendo, for Super Famicom)
    2. Virtua Fighter 2 (1995, Sega, for Sega Saturn)
    3. Ridge Racer Revolution (1995, Namco, for PlayStation)
    4. Super Mario 64 (1996, Nintendo, for Nintendo 64)
    5. Tekken 3 (1998, Namco, for PlayStation)
    6. Cyber Troopers Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram (1999, Sega, for Dreamcast)
    7. Final Fantasy X (2001, Square Co., Ltd., for PlayStation 2)
    8. Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec (2001, Sony Computer Entertainment, for PlayStation 2)
    9. Resident Evil (2002, Capcom, for Nintendo GameCube)
    10. Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (2004, Square Enix, for PlayStation 2)
    11. Gran Turismo 4 (2004, Sony Computer Entertainment, for PlayStation 2)
    12. Kingdom Hearts II (2005, Square Enix and Buena Vista Games, for PlayStation 2)
    13. Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (2005, Konami, for PlayStation 2)
    14. Dead or Alive 4 (2005, Tecmo, for Xbox 360)
    15. ?kami (2006, Capcom, for PlayStation 2)

    17. Grand Theft Auto IV (2008, Rockstar, for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)

    I'm with you on that. Recently went on the Wii Nintendo shopping channel and grabbed Secret of Mana and Super Mario RPG. Awesome.

    Windwaker, with the exception of the painfully annoying mini-boss battles in the end, was arguably the best Zelda game ever made. And I've played all of them.
