9 down, 7 to go.

7 games to go!  Wow, that sounds like a lot, but considering I've played the longer ones, it shouldn't take too long now.

In case you still haven't figured out what I'm talking about, I beat Link's Awakening!  Yeah.  I was too lazy to beat the Color Dungeon, but I'll get around to it eventually.  But now I'm on to the original Legend of Zelda!

Okay, I know 2 of you suggested that I play A Link to the Past, and I value your suggestions, really.  :P

But first of all I wanted to save the best for last, and I've heard more about it and it sounds really good.  Now, if that were the only factor, then I'd probably still play it first.  But since I beat Link's Awakening last night, after I found out about the A Link to the Past sequel, I decided that when I play the sequel I want the prequel to be fresh in my mind.  I want to play them more or less back-to-back.

And yeah, I've decided I'm getting a 3DS now, but I can't decide what to do.  I'm stuck between two decisions: save up a little more and get it really soon (I already have some money saved up for an emergency situation like this one), or wait until my birthday which is in June.  If I wait, I won't have to pay for it, but that will likely be the only big gift I get for my birthday, especially because I just got a Wii U a few months ago.

So yeah, it's either spending my own money and doing extra chores and yard work, or waiting a while and not getting another present.  I'll still get some other small stuff, but you know what I mean.

But anyway, I've found that the Legend of Zelda (here I'll be talking about the game, not the series) is actually really easy.  Finding the dungeons is incredibly hard, I'll give it that.  But once you find the dungeon, it's SO easy.  There are NO puzzles, the dungeons are incredibly short, and the bosses are REALLY easy.  Some of the other enemies are hard, but the bosses themselves?  Pshhh.  Piece of cake.

In fact, I found it so easy that I'm already halfway through the game.  (I've completed levels 1-4 out of 8, not including Death Mountain.)  Now, I know that it'll get harder as it goes on, but so far it's so easy. I had to use a walkthrough to find one of the dungeons (I think it was the third, but I may be wrong), since I looked everywhere but the place it was, but other than that I've had a pretty easy time.  I kind of like it, too.  The exploration.  I've found a bunch of little secrets like bombable walls in the overworld by accident.

So yeah, in about 2-3 hours I've done 4 out of 9 dungeons in LoZ.  I'll probably have it beaten by Saturday or so.

On another note, here's a little side story.  Yesterday I texted my friend that there's a new Zelda game.  And he said "What?  No there isn't."  And I sent him the link to ZD and stuff, and he's like "Nope.  I still don't believe you.  Wait WHAT?"  And then we sort of started having like an epic bro-mance moment where we started screaming (or should I say texting) at each other "YEAH!"  "AW YEAH!"  "YEAH!"  "OH YEAH!"  And that went on...

So long story short, I'm excited.  And so is he.

Anywho, I've got to go now, so bye!

But really, should I wait for a 3DS or get it now?

Bye!  ;)


  1. Hi,
    I´ve been following your blog for a while but never really felt like commenting before.
    I really enjoy reading your posts, there is a big shortage of good Zelda blogs here (Honestly, I've been thinking about writing too) ^^

    Maybe you should wait for a 3Ds, but that's my advice which isn't proven to be the best.
    You said that the 3Ds will be your only big gift, so you can save up the money to buy the game (and maybe OOT3D, because the new graphics look so great ^^)

    1. Hey! Thanks for following, it's always nice to know I have another reader!

      And I'm thinking that I will wait, since by the time I will have saved up enough, my birthday will probably already be here. I'll probably get a Gamestop giftcard too, so I can use that. But I'll still have to save for other games I want. I think I'll get OoT3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising, and Mario Kart 7.

      Not to mention the new Zelda game, of course. XD

  2. I see the predicament you're in, and I can't really say much about it. Perhaps you should buy a 3DS, then save up the birthday money to buy games! (Pretty much what Caar~! said) I laughed when I saw the conversation you had with your friend. I wish i had Zelda friends like that. *sigh* Bye now!
