Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

This, my friends, is where I'm spending my vacation time this summer.

Don't be too surprised if you don't see me for a couple of months. It's a great game. One can really get lost in it.

I'll be honest: at first I thought I wouldn't like it. I've never been big with computer role-playing games. But somewhere in the first chapter, I got hooked.

Great story. Great pacing. Great cinematography. Endearing characters. Menacing villains. And a slowly unfolding mystery.

Pure entertainment.


  1. oh no! This tells me I need to *not* get this game or I may not graduate in time.

  2. oops... hope you find your way back... hehe

  3. Can I play with your Wii? hehehe

  4. Roy: actually, one of the great things about this game is that you can break down your gameplay into convenient bite-sized chunks. Each map is small enough and you can save at any time. Kidding aside about spending my entire summer here, I really do just put in an hour into the game after I get home from work.

    Tina: it's a very nice place to visit, but nothing beats real life.

    Eric Z: oh, man, that just sounds so wro-ooong =))

  5. Watch out for two game-breaking bugs. These can easily be prevented by walking or talking.

    1. When you get to this scene where a bunch of moblins destroy a bridge, don't save until you've left that area--if you save and quit at that moment, when you start the game, you'll be on the other side, and therefore will be stuck. Just move on to the next area and the game will be fine.

    2. Much later on, after the Temple of Time, you will find an old cannon, and someone will be there. Keep talking to him and he will leave. If you save and quit BEFORE he leaves, when you restart, he will have disappeared. If he disappears, you won't be able to trigger the next event.

  6. Hey, Miguel: thanks much for the tips. I'm not that far ahead in the game but it's good to know. And thanks for not dropping any spoilers ;-)

  7. Wiiiii... I see you got yourself a new toy!
