PZ35/21 – February check-in

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, or if you know me in person, you’re probably well aware that I tend to get really excited when I start up a project, only to fizzle out and drop it completely before long. It’s a fault in me, I know and accept this, and I don’t think it’s ever going to change.

That said, how goes my plan of playing through all of the Legend of Zelda video games? If we reference the original document, it actually turns out that I’m ahead of schedule. I finished up through Link’s Awakening in January, and probably a lot of that has to do with the fact that the four original Zelda games are relatively short. There’s even video evidence to back up this claim! Though most of it won’t go live for months…

You can follow my harrowing playthrough of Zelda II, which will be airing a new episode each Thursday during February. The first two episodes are up now, and I think that they set a pretty goo precedent for how the rest of the game unfolds. You can also read a thing that I wrote about the game here, on how I would change the game to be a little more player-friendly.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past will start on Feb 28, and I think I’m going to have to speed up the video release timeline if we’re going to get through all of these games by the end of the year. Right now it’s kind of getting bogged down by Witch Hunt, which I knew that nobody would watch, but I remain adamant that I want to keep it on schedule. It’s a good game and deserves some time to shine. Even if nobody ever sees said shine.

Going into February, I’ll be starting up the Ocarina of Time playthrough just as soon as the little HDMI goober that I bought for my Wii arrives. Why do I need to play OoT through the Wii, you ask? Because I’m playin’ Rando, baby! Sure, I could use an emulator, but I would rather use legit hardware for these playthroughs as much as possible.

So that’s the update. It’s going well! At this rate, I should hit Breath of the Wild by July. I really hope so. Man, I’ve been itching to play some Breath of the Wild…
