SRT -- Suzuka just joined. Game's pretty cool, I like the battle system, I love the music, and the overworld map reminds me of Vay, which makes me all shades of nostalgic.
GOT A NES WHOO. It's the first one I've ever actually owned, since I was a Sega kid. Played through the first dungeon in Zelda and twatted around with some other shit. Cobra Triangle is definitely the best game Rare's ever made.
I'm very curious as to what a new player would do to solve the puzzles of the original Zelda without using things like GameFAQs.
Well, we'll have to wait until someone else starts it up, cause I've always been a fan of speed runs and I've watched the Legend of Zelda one a few times previously, so... :P
I had a feeling that was going to be the case but oh well. And speaking of LoZ I've made it to level 8 in LADX. Too bad my minimalist run was shot to hell the moment I bought the Bow. At least I don't have the L2-Sword, the Mirror Shield, the Boomerang, either of the other Tunics, Mambo's Mambo, any of the Pieces of Heart, or any of the Trade Items beyond the Pineapple. :/
Edit: Nevermind. The Bow was needed for at least one key (although it is
possible to live without it so long as you don't open a certain door) which in that sense it's about as useful as the Mirror Shield. At least I didn't have to complete the Trading Quest nor did I acquire the Boomerang. Unfortunately I also ended up with two secret seashells and three potions (only one of which I used in place of the Mirror Shield).
Also I beat the game (Minimalist run complete? Kinda). Only GBC game left to beat is that terrible Lufia game. :(
