We have just started The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. We plan to finish this game and hopefully one or both Oracle games since we haven't ever played either of them. Finally, if we have any time left over, we'll conclude with A Link to the Past.

If you guys want to play along at home to share in the experience, grab a controller, your copy of the game and follow along. We'll be going until Sunday night!

Both of us should be in the forums to chat in Talkback so post questions if you have them!

Also, as you know, we aren't professional marathon gamers, we're just looking to have some fun. However, for the next seven days The Speed Gamers will be smashing through the entire mainline Final Fantasy series for ACT Today. Be sure to check out their live feed and, if you can, donate to the cause.

This is pretty badass. Sorry the sound and video kind of blow. I'll look into getting a better setup tomorrow, but for tonight this will do.

BeautifulShyJuly 17, 2009

I love the third dungeon. For the longest time I would get stuck in there and not figure out how to go on back when it came out. One of my favorite bosses in the game.

BeautifulShyJuly 17, 2009

I just love how Princess Ruto acts around Link. It is cute.

BeautifulShyJuly 17, 2009

The slingshot is the best way to beat these guys. Also lock on to them.

AVJuly 17, 2009

i tried to play MASTER QUEST 00T at the start of the summer and the ugly textures just put me out of the game. It's hard for me to play that game now.  :-\

are you guys doing MASTER QUEST Version, off the n64, off the virtual console or off the GAMECUBE COLLECTORS DISK ?

Weiner to the face !  ;D LOL

BeautifulShyJuly 17, 2009

Great you got the boomerrang!

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

The video is horrible, but I'm not certain what do to about that.  For the audio, you should get some simple Y splitter cables, split the jacks from the Wii into whatever sound system you have now and into an RCA-3.5mm mini-jack an feed that to your computer's line-in.

Also, although you're not "professional", one of the nice things is how the "pros" interact with the audience.  Give us something more than just you playing. :)

Nick DiMolaNick DiMola, Staff AlumnusJuly 17, 2009

We're trying :(. The audio is so low I'm not sure you guys can even hear us.

kraken613July 17, 2009

Do you have a chat somewhere or just talk on here?

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

We can hear you (had to turn my volume up a bit, but it's all good!).

Flames_of_chaosLukasz Balicki, Staff AlumnusJuly 17, 2009

Blame Nick for being stuck with a crummy Eyetoy, he should of upgraded to a PS EYE ;).

BeautifulShyJuly 17, 2009

Go back to the room with the holes with the Princess.

AVJuly 17, 2009

can your wife go in front of the screen so we can see her pretty face ? maybe a quick twirl too  ;D ;D

you too. I'm not sure if I have seen any actual pictures of either of you.

Mop it upJuly 17, 2009

If you want to be "hardcore" about this then you should be skipping the heart containers...

AVJuly 17, 2009

I think your wife is pretty funny.  :D :D

I can hear you just fine. FYI

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

Yeah, we can hear both of you just fine!

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

Playing on Wii or GCN?

BeautifulShyJuly 17, 2009

Ah this is an pretty fun Miniboss.

kraken613July 17, 2009

You make me sad... My last Wavebird died the other day.... Damn Nintendo and their lost molds!

it's 11: 12 PM here in Texas where I am.

I was about to go to bed, but i found this and I can't stop watching.

Lock on and use your Boomerrang. Run the other way.You aren't going to catch  it by going the same way. When it changes direction you have to as well.

Playing on Wii or GCN?

It's one of the GameCube versions because the icons are red and green to match the red "B" button and the green "A" button, though I don't know if it's the Collector's Edition or the Master Quest edition.

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

Is there a way of setting the live feed to not auto play whenever the page loads?  I've got the feed going in one window and posting in a second, so it doesn't interrupt the feed with each post... but then, I get two feeds going at once... :(
Nevermind, we're on a second page of posts now.

Moppy: Collector's Disc (with Z1, 2, 5 and 6).

"just shut the hell up"

LOL! I can definitely see someone getting grated on that unnerving boss music with awful camera controls.

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

Why aren't you rolling so you go faster and can catch up? :)

BeautifulShyJuly 17, 2009

Well that is one way of beating it.

The way I beat that is I lock on and face it and then hit it with my boomerang.It will spin around and you have to hit it again so that that green spot is facing you .Hit that with your sword and then keep that up until it dies.

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

LINK'S AWAKENING IS THE BESTEST!!!

You guys have to do 4 swords on cube.

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

If you were at my house, you could hook GameCubes up to the Wii for GBAs in Four Swords. ;)

BeautifulShyJuly 17, 2009

Ah one of my favorite bosses.

My vote goes for Ages. I liked that one more than Seasons for some reason.

I'm almost done with Link's Awakening, so something else would be nice.

Ages is a good choice.

Man I sure hope Nintendo releases Game Boy games for the DSi.

BeautifulShyJuly 17, 2009

Are you guys going to do any side quests in OOT?

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

I imported an Indigo one from Japan when they were first released and bought a black one when they released them in the US.

It works with normal GCN extension cables. :)

I am. I save everytime I got something important or did something big. I saved like a 1000 times in 00t

majoras mask and reverse ocarina
wind waker and the wand.
tp and the wolf singing.

enough already.

kraken613July 17, 2009

So Nick, how excited are you for The Beatles: Rock Band? I am so ridiculously excited.

Also in the past week the addiction to Rock Band has returned to my girlfriend and I. We have played every day for at least 2-3 hours. Then the other night we had a Rock Band party and has two set ups between 12 people. It was awesome.

AVJuly 17, 2009

you remember the glitch with the master sword at the end of the game. you could only do it in the gold cart and it did so many random odd things

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

Quote from: Mr.

Music has been a part of virtually every Zelda game.  Remember the Whistle in Z1?

CalibanJuly 17, 2009

And the flute in Zelda II.

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

3 and 4 both featured an Ocarina. :)

CalibanJuly 17, 2009

Howling in Twilight Princess lol.

AVJuly 17, 2009

i know its been part of zelda but the last few 3d zelda games have made it really tedious and shoe horned into gameplay.

CalibanJuly 17, 2009

Not the howling. You only did that if you wanted more attacks.

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

I love that all of the cut scenes are rendered with the in-game engine.  If you use a GameShark and the "levitate" code, you can sit there and bounce/fly up and down during all the cut scenes. :)

AVJuly 17, 2009

do you use deku nuts ? I never did

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

Also, since I brought up the GameShark - don't forget the hidden Arwing in the game's code. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H10Tl3sTpWM

THIS IS BADASS.

We are so doing a live podcast with this.

For sure man, we'll definitely hook this up at E3.

Hey, if I watch you and Chessa play through all of Super Mario Galaxy, does that count?  I'm just sayin'.

I'm so scoring that 200 point prize!

On the other hand, I have to give up Nintendo stuff to do so...

Have you named the Dewey dolls? I have heard they are good practice for preparing to raise children

with my new fortune i bought the first DLC for Bust-a-move Plus. I got 100 wii points left.  :D

Thanks guys.

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

Thank Mr. Jack.  If it had been me, I wouldn't have warned y'all about the prize - I would have just said "Here's a 200 point code - first to redeem it wins!" then started reading the numbers. But I'm an ass. ;)

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 17, 2009

I *LOVE* the music in this game.  Have you ever listed to the orchestrated soundtrack?

AVJuly 17, 2009

ok guys it was fun. I'll try to come back tomorrow around noon. have a good night. Thanks for the points.
time for sleep.

remember to constantly save ! you don't want the game to crash or something and you didn't save in an hour.

Fun swordfights with these skeleton dudes

Good answer.

Mop it upJuly 17, 2009

I'm impressed you've heard of Space Station Silicon Valley, most people haven't heard of it.

I think one reason the Nintendo 64 is remembered so fondly is because it was the first foray into the third dimension. We got to see a lot of our favourite franchises in a whole new way.

What I like to do versus the Claw enemys is split them into  the 3 smaller claws then use the fire spell.Since you didn't get the second magic meter it can be costly.You can get it in the Death Mountain area before the Fire Temple.

What Zelda game is this?

StratosJuly 18, 2009

He was gonna do Seasons and Ages next. Last I saw on the screen it was Seasons.

Mop it upJuly 18, 2009

No, they just got tired of OoT and wanted to play something else. They choose Ages.

BeautifulShyJuly 18, 2009

Ok thanks.

I haven't beat either but I have played both so I can't really be much help.


They got tired of OOT.They were almost done with the game.

StratosJuly 18, 2009

I beat Seasons but I don't think I ever finished Ages. I want to go back and play it so I can play the secret super ending that both games culminate into.

Has anyone recomended them for RetroActive?

BeautifulShyJuly 18, 2009

I don't think it has been recomened for Retro Active.

Not many GameBoy games has been nomanated.

StratosJuly 18, 2009

I just noiminated it. Go and second me if you want to help push it.

I also badgered Jonny about how he plans to do the GameBoy poll. Are Brick and Color toghether or will they be separate polls, I wonder. I could see it going both ways.

I'm just curious, do you have any way of knowing exactly how many people are watching?

Nick DiMolaNick DiMola, Staff AlumnusJuly 18, 2009

I think there is some way, Aaron will probably know best.

For those who missed it, we will be trying to finish OoT tomorrow morning and we'll be starting around 10-10:30 EST

BeautifulShyJuly 18, 2009

You should get the Magic upgrade and the fire and ice arrows if you haven't already done so.

Mop it upJuly 18, 2009

Those aren't necessary to beat the game so I don't think they care so much about them. Getting the ice arrows takes some time.

BeautifulShyJuly 18, 2009

There is a room in Ganon's tower that you need the Fire Arrows.
You could try and solve that room without it but it could cause lots of headaches otherwise.

Well the Ice Arrows aren't needed from this point.

The second magic meter is a must though.

BeautifulShyJuly 18, 2009

Ok I just went through the room and there isn't another way to get through that room. You have to have the Fire Arrows.

vuduJuly 19, 2009

So what game are you going to play now Mr.Jack and Chessa?

I also can't get into chat.

Mop it upJuly 19, 2009

They're taking a break for now and will be back around 6PM Eastern. Next they will play either the original Zelda or Link to the Past.

If Link's Awakening will be the DX colour version, I will vote for that.

However, if it is the original, I agree that it might be difficult to see certain things, so I would vote for Link To The Past if that's the case.

Did you not see them play Oracle of Ages? It was pretty difficult to see anything.

BeautifulShyJuly 19, 2009

Well they are doing Link's Awakening.DX version.

StratosJuly 19, 2009

Link's Awakening was always my favorite.

I always thought they should make a sequel to it.  :)

So -- Was the Audio/Video problems on Mr. Jack's end, or what?

CalibanJuly 19, 2009

I was pretty much spot on except for the video jerkiness sometimes. When you mentioned that you were just watching them get the key or whatever it was I had already seen it.

Mop it upJuly 19, 2009

Looks like I missed it...

I wasn't around for this, but the whole thing is pretty awesome.  Way to go, Mr. Jack.  As I said in the "Recapping Zelda" thread, I'm replaying the whole franchise through, and I'm currently on Ocarina.  It's really fun to revisit all these games.

So is there any possibility of doing more events like this? It's pretty neat. I'd like to see us go through some new release or something in the future.

What sort of equipment do you need to pull it off well? Can a camcorder and a capture card work or do you need more gear?

Yes, we plan on doing this a lot in the future.

A webcam or a capture card (+inputs) is all that's necessary.

StratosJuly 21, 2009

I have a regular camcorder and something that lets me hook it up to a computer. I haven't tried to run anything through my new computer. I'll have to dabble with it and see what happens.

I have a capture device. Though I have a feeling that setting up a live feed isn't something someone without knowledge of computers could do...

Question - How many times did y'all die in Zelda 1?  I finally finished my game today... wanted to compare. :)

Nick DiMolaNick DiMola, Staff AlumnusJuly 24, 2009

I think twice... maybe three times at most.

UncleBobRichard Cook, Guest ContributorJuly 24, 2009

Damn... way better than I did.  I should have grinded a bit more at the beginning and kept more potions on-hand. And it's been so long since I've played it... ;)

Nick DiMolaNick DiMola, Staff AlumnusJuly 24, 2009

Well, in all fairness, I've played and beaten this game many, many times. It's one of my favorite Zelda games, and I do have it pretty solidly memorized, with the exception of the ninth dungeon.

I'm probably going to get the first 2 Zelda games from Gamefly soon. I am one of the people who started Zelda gaming with Phantom Hourglass and then went to Minish Cap and Link to the Past on the GBA. Thankfully, I am catching up on old games that came out on GBA quickly now.

Good job though. I hope that people will do this more on the forums now.

I'm streaming the entire "Final Fantasy IV : Echoes of Betrayal, Light of Redemption, an OverClocked ReMix Album" here if anybody is interested.

For the record, an event like this would be better suited with a chat room to go along with it.

...Just saying.

Not sure what you mean.  We always have a chatroom open, and it was used well during the Zelda broadcast (after the first day).

Caffeinated CheeseJuly 25, 2009

Whoa!  The links were down some time ago, so I thought it had burnt out.

I would have joined in had I realized it was back.  I suppose this is a case when I should just be ignored.

StratosJuly 26, 2009

I joined the chatroom and someone asked if I was a girl. Kinda odd.

I joined the chat on the first post of this thread. There were also other people I recognized on at the time. I couldn't find out what was up with the comment because right after that I got disconnected.

Caffeinated CheeseJuly 26, 2009

Is Stratos a hot chick?

Rimmer asks everyone that question when they join chat, unless he or she is a regular in the chat.  Then he still might do it.

NWR's chat has a different following than NWR's Forums, but they rarely chat.

LOL, that's funny. Are there any forum regulars who are also chat regulars?

That's strange. Do you know the username of the person who asked you?
Did you enter a chat username for yourself or did you leave it as generic? I kept logging in as "NWR_Chat_####" so maybe there was some confusion...

StratosJuly 27, 2009

I logged on as Stratos.

I didn't see anyone named Rimmer in the chat though. Is there more than one chatroom or something?

Yes, or that's what she leads us to believe....
