Having Some Gaming Fun

 

 

 

So last week (a few days ago, in fact) I leveled up!

 

To those that don’t speak nerd/geek lingo, that means it was my birthday. And for said birthday I finally snagged a copy of the new Legend of Zelda game, Breath of the Wild. It’s super awesome and I’ve already sacrificed countless hours of my life to it with no regrets!

 

In honor of my birthday gift to myself, here’s a picture of Link I took while out hiking a while ago…

 

 

 

 

Until next time…

Zora’s Domain

 

No amount of inclement weather or drastic change in temperature will stop the Hero of Time!  (Don’t look at me like that, we’ve already established that I’m a nerd)

 
Though the weather was bleak and cold, Link still found the strength to pay a visit to the Zora’s Domain. But why? Well, that I’ll leave to your imagination.

If you’re lost and don’t know what I’m talking about, I urge you to go play a Legend of Zelda game. I’d recommend Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, or Skyward Sword.

 

Don’t worry, next week’s post won’t be nerdy. I figured I’d give my readers a break from my geekness (plus Link could use a break too! [-_^]).

 

 

 

Until next time…

What’s In There?

 

Link knows well that being a hero means being not only brave, but curious.  Curiosity helps heroes find the clues they need (and hidden treasure chests!) to complete their quests.

 

Here we see Link’s curiosity at work, wondering what could possibly be down in a hole in a stump.  Hopefully it’s a treasure chest and not a monster.

 

What's in there?

 

 

Until next time…

Even Heroes Need A Break

 

Questing, battling monsters, rescuing princesses, and saving kingdoms… It’s hard work. It should come as no surprise that even heroes need a break now and then.

Link is notorious for sleeping for long periods of time. He was even considered “lazy” by the Great Deku Tree and the Kokiri. But once he’s refreshed from his nap, watch out!

This concludes this month’s blog posts. As I mentioned on the first, I won’t be posting next week (the 22nd) or the following week (the 29th). I’ll be back with a new post on Monday, September 5th.

Link’s Greatest Find

 

 

Everyone who is familiar with and is a fan (like me) of the Legend of Zelda games knows that Link never starts out in the game with the best equipment. In Ocarina of Time he starts out as a child who has to find the small Kokiri sword and buy the wooden Deku shield. In Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword he has to find and/or buy and continuously upgrade to better equipment.

 
When it comes to his shield, the best of the best happens to be the Hylian shield. He usually has to go in search of it (or purchase it, or even have it gifted to him after completing some task, like in Ocarina of Time).

 
Here we see our Hero of Hyrule when he discovered his greatest find…
The Hylian shield!

 

 

Behold! Link discovers the Hylian Shield!

Behold! Link discovers the Hylian Shield!

 

 
I’m a total nerd, I know… And proud of it!

 

 

 

Until next time…
