Clueless Gamer

Friday, June 13th, 2014 at 11:40 am

One of the things I’ve been doing once in a while is, one night, spending 2-4 hours watching Conan O’Brien on YouTube.
I first got into it from a Clueless Gamer…and then just started loving his humor.

Anyways, here combines two great things: Conan and Super Smash Bros. Wii U


Nintendo Anime

Just thought this was cool, the first 1/2 of it I mean:

Combining Link and Pit and Paluntena in an anime…is pretty cool. It’s especially awesome seeing Link as a cool anime character!

RE: Nintendo @ E3

New Zelda looks cool, Captain Toad is a game I’d get, I wish I saw the Smash Bros Tournament…

That is all.

Pokemon Y Update

Monday, February 3rd, 2014 at 1:24 am

I’ve been playing Pokemon a lot lately, doing wonder trades and deciding to do my best at ‘collecting them all’.

So far, I only have 272 of the 718 Pokemon but I have 314 Pokemon in my Pokedex. This is because I’m trying to get each stage of a character, ex 3 “Char” characters – ex. Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard, as opposed to just 1.

Sadly, I still have many, many to collect :(

Not really playing any other 3DS games at the moment….

Zelda: A Link Between Worlds – Complete!

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013 at 3:57 pm

100% Complete as of last night! Well, I think it’s 100% complete, sometimes it’s hard to tell.

I’m a little really sad this game is over. I’d been anticipating it since it was announced and dreamed of a Zelda: A Link to the Past sequel for 20 years! The game was disappointing in that – it was really short. And the dungeons weren’t all that hard, they could be completed fairly easily – but I know this is due to the “you can tackle any dungeon at any time” thing.

I didn’t know this game at all but I beat it quite fast and I think a lot of that has to do with my experience with the SNES version. But also, the controls are quite simple in this world in that, in a 3D game like anything Nintendo 64+, some of the struggles you have are due to the environment, camera angles, and things like that. Because this is a 2D game (kinda), there’s a lot less to consider and a lot less to figure out.

Don’t get me wrong though, Nintendo did a LOT of things right with this game. It’s actually almost like a perfect Zelda game to me, other than its duration. Its difficulty is easy too but that’s why they have Master Quest so I won’t mention that as a drawback.

It’s pretty funny how, despite not having a real musical instrument in this game (other than a bell, maybe), music and sound play quite a factor. For example, to do some of the timer-less challenges (where there’s a timer, but you can’t see it), you can rely on music. To catch the Maiamai’s, you need to listen to the sound they make. Well, you don’t HAVE to but doing so makes it way easier to find them. I HAD to play and listen to music so that I could find the Maiamais. Pretty clever Nintendo! And they made finding the Maiamai’s much easier by telling you how many are in what section. Screw you Skulltula tokens. At least in this game, you can systematically find them.

Anyways…I’m gonna give this game a break, I played it so much from Saturday 6pm to Sunday midnight and Monday night and Tuesday night….need a break and then I try Master Quest.

Wasn’t too thrilled with the story, it was much simpler than it should have been for a game of this age. It wasn’t awful, but I would have preferred more. This game definitely could open up a whole other world for Nintendo to explore…..that’d be kind of interesting.

Zelda: A Link Between World – Progress Update

Monday, November 25th, 2013 at 1:29 am

Got the game…Saturday night and I’ve been playing quite a bit since then. Hmm…come to think of it, I’ve only had the game for about 30 hours now.

I’ve got 16/20 hearts and have 2 dungeons from Lorule left.
I’ve got 65 Maiamais.
I bought all the items already, after renting them.
I need to upgrade my Master Sword.
I need to upgrade my clothing.

I’ve taken part in 2 Shadow Link battles and won both of them. The guy (or is it AI? I’m still unsure…) I was playing second used 2 potions as his items – lame! but I still one with 1/4 or 1 heart left. It was really intense! I had the stupid Tornado Rod which was good at first until the guy countered it. And I had a dumb boomerang which just brings the guy closer. Bleh. What a waste of items.

Anyways – don’t think I’m gonna finish tonight so I figure I’ll just blog about this…

I’m kinda sad because although this is a great game and every bit the sequel I was looking for, I feel bitter-sweet as it’s almost over. I think.

I haven’t “turned off” the game yet. One thing about Zelda: LTTP (A Link to the Past) was that there’d be a 0 beside your name if you played it all the way through in one time…that’s what I’m going for.

I’ve “died” only once – right when I got to Lorule where everything hurts way more and I was super weak. But a fairy saved me so I didn’t have to repay no rental fees!

I’m not using any guides of sort – usually I do but this one, because it’s so quick to explore and stuff, I’m doing it all myself…uhhh, for the most part.

Anyways – will definitely be beating the game tomorrow, after work.

I’m excited to see what else lies in the story!
