I'm Back! (Can't think of a better name...)

Sorry, again, that I've been gone for so long, but I've been quite busy, and there just really hasn't been much Zelda stuff going on.

When there is less Zelda stuff, this blog becomes a little more about me.  Just saying.  Because, you know, there's kinda nothing much else to write about.

Well, today it was announced that Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons are both coming to the 3DS eShop!  Sadly, I can't get them, as I don't have a 3DS.  But anyway, these are the VERY LAST Zelda games to come to the newest (excluding Wii U) consoles!  (3DS or Wii.)  They're also the last Zelda games to come out on a second console.  LoZ, AoL, and ALttP came out on Wii Virtual Console.  LA is on 3DS.  OoT and MM are on Virtual Console.  WW could be played on Wii, FS came out for 3DS, FSA could be played on Wii, MC on 3DS, TP on Wii, PH and ST on 3DS, and SS on Wii.  And now the Oracles, too!!!

And also, I just realized something.

Something big.

You know the Zelda manga, right?  And the manga in the back of Hyrule Historia?

And you know who wrote it, write?  (Pun intended XD)

Well, the name is Akira Himekawa, which you might already know.

And I just found out Akira Himekawa IS ACTUALLY TWO PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry if I'm slow, and everyone already knew this, but I just found out last night when I reread the Skyward Sword manga in H.H.

So yeah, it's the pseudonym (you know, pen name, like Dr. Seuss) of two female manga artists.  Weird, huh?  No?  ...okay.

Speaking of Hyrule Historia, the writers over at Zelda Dungeon have just found out about that medallion error in Hyrule Historia.  You know, the one I posted about a while back?

Well, I'm sorta proud.  Because it took them almost a month XD

And I found out 2 days after it came out, only 1 day after I got it.  YAY, I'M OBSERVANT!  :D

Check out the ZD article here:

Speaking of Zelda Dungeon, I'm still trying to work out that commenting problem.  I'm quite sure it's a bug in Disqus, but for the past few weeks (maybe a month), I've been blocked from commenting.  I've been e-mailing Mases to see what the problem is, and I hope it gets worked out soon, so I can come back soon and fulfill my goal of being top commenter!  I'm third right now.

(You're on, baileygirl99!  XD )

Too bad this had to happen.  I'm losing my progress.

Speaking of commenting, that reminds me of GenGame, where I can actually STILL comment.  And today they posted about the new PlayStation 4 controller being announced!  Not that I have, or will get, a PlayStation any time soon, what's curious is that the controller has a touch pad.  Not a touch screen, but a touch pad, like on a laptop.

See that touch pad?

Hmm.  This is the third time Sony has copied Nintendo.

First the PSP.  A portable gaming device - with a touch screen.  Okay, to be honest, this one's not really fair, as most people probably assumed that portable gaming devices would end up with touch screens.  But still, Nintendo did it first.

And then the PlayStation Move.  This one is more of an obvious copy.  They had a cylinder-like controller with motion controls - and a wrist strap.  Sound familiar?  :P  "Oh, but it involves a camera, too!  It improved upon Nintendo's idea!"  Yeah... okay.  Sure.

And now, probably the most obvious of them all... a home console that has a controller with touch features.  Seriously, this was probably one of the most unique video game consoles (the Wii U), and the only way Sony could have thought of this is because of Nintendo.

Now, I may sound irritated by this, but I'm really not.  I still can't decide whether this is a complement to Nintendo - or downright unoriginality.

Anyway, after this rather long post, with many words and few pictures, I'd say that's all for today.

Stay tuned, and as always, see you next time!  ;)  (Or sooner, if you comment.  :P)


  1. heh...I actually don't keep track of my ranking on ZD...Although,not to toot my own horn or anything, I'll bet I'm pretty high up. xD. I remember when I saw the post on ZD and I was like "yup. It's about time they noticed." And I finished the H.H. like, a few days after I got it! It was so amazing! I wrote my name in Geroudo and TP Hylian! even though it was hard. But, I can't write my name in WW ancient Hylian or OoT Hylian, because they don't have a "Ba" symbol :'-( but it was fuuun. ^-^ well, see ya!

    1. OK. You know at the top of the Disqus comment section place thingy? Where it says Discussion | Community | My Disqus ? Well click on community and it shows the top commenters for that site. "itsameluigi" is first, "JuicieJ" is second, you're third with 729 comments, and I'm 4th with 653. Wow. It really doesn't feel like I've commented that much. :P So yeah you're third.

      And yeah Hyrule Historia is EPIC!!!!! My friend's getting it too ^.^

      I can't write my name in SS ancient Hylian (impossible for everyone), or OoT Hylian, or WW Hylian. But I did it in Gerudo and TP, too!

      Oh, and I noticed this, after you mentioned it: in WW Hylian, you can write "Bairee". :P Or "Bairya". XD

      And I just had a thought in my head. Imagine walking up to someone on the street and saying "Hey. Guess what? I can write your name in Hylian..." *Other person walks away slowly*


      Okay yeah that was kind of stupid. Anyway, now that I've kind of turned this comment into more of a small post, I'll be going now. Bye!

    2. dem asians and their "r"s and "l"s... xP. I laughed at that last joke're a crack up!
