Hyper is the only mag I buy these days =D

I've got every single issue of NMS (Even the ultra rare Pokem*, uh, issue number four! SHOCK)
Got a stack of N64 Gamers (Looking back, it was a rather terrible magazine! But it had humor, and that's why I kept buying it. I guess)

And yeah, used to buy Megazone (R.I.P) way back when it was a multi-format magazine ..

Wow, you can tell I'm bored? Can't play Zelda at the moment -_-

Heh, cool sh*t.

Check it out, my game collection in a nice neat list!

So, what games do I have laying around?

Not finished yet..

Woah, you have Secret of Evermore on SNES PIAC?!

I never managed to find a copy of that when I had a SNES, and when the game was brand new! It's ultra mega hyper rare to find that game today!

Ultra mega super uber fun-tastic happy wish show rare!

"FAMILY WISH SHOW!"

"Hmm, that gives me and idea..."

"Oh mum, I think we ALL had that idea"

"I didn't! Is is lunch?"

I've gone to every place on the map, and I'm just going around trying to get all the weapons and stuff.

And Shifty, if you're talking about the dungeon for the third pearl, sorry. There is no dungeon. There are like millions of little dunsgeons on all the little islands.
I actually got so far ahead of myself (I've already unlocked the dungeon that opens up when you place the three pearls on the statues), that I don't have hookshot, bow and arrow, Link's super sword swing attack - the one from the movies, the gauntlets (to pick up the stone heads) or the iron boots (at least I think they're iron boots - cause the fish talk about something that makes you unmovable for Gale Island). There are sooo many littel islands, it takes so long to go to them all and explore.


Well, thats my post for this week. See you soon.
I haven't touched Ocarina of Time since Thursday. And I haven't even seen Master Quest yet.

Termin8:I know that third pearl isn't a dungeon. Just a bit too short eh? I was referring to the Hero's Tower thingo. Another easy boss too. I really hope they get tougher. But I don't mind the whole exploring side of the game.
I've got the Master Sword now! Yay! I'm glad I didn't find out about the story before I got this game, because the plot twists and turns after returning to save my sister. Great stuff!!
Is there a hookshot? I thought the grappling hook was in place of it?
And the sages are back! Wicked!

For the rest of you, stop posting and play more Zelda. I'm only on because I've hooked my little brother, who said he wouldn't play it because of the graphics. Hah!

Well Since we're all doing it.
My Games List
Note my comments on Golden Sun and note my love for the 'Sim' series (before it turned mainstream)
Actually that collection isn't complete (missing SNES, GCN and GBC games), and it seems Ign moved some of my wanted list into my actual have list.

Anyway, my dad supposeadly got someone to pick up my copy of the windwaker today (Monday) and he got them to pester the shop people about bonus disks. Just what sort of numbers of bonus disks were there? Was every copy in this shipping limited or were there bonus diskless games out there?

This is the line I got from EB - they get a few limited edition ones (with the bonus disk) that go to people with pre-orders first, then to whoever else. Not sure about prices, I've heard the LE ones are extra. When I went in on launch day, there was a stack of about 15-20 behind the desk.

Infernal: The Cement Factory G&W game was wicked. I used to have it (maybe I lost it, maybe I sold it) and that was my favourite game pre-consoles! I wish I still had it. The memories...

I'm joining up to IGN now. Look for Shifty_Monkey!

Haha, yeah, it can provide a surprising amount of fun!
I used to carry it around when I was a little dude, ah, the fun of not owning a Game Boy -_-

Did ya know Nintendo's re-released Mario's Cement Factory recently? Yep, and a whole bunch of other G&W's. They're heaps smaller, look alot like a really small GB, and cost around $15. Post Office's seem to be obsessed with selling them, so if you wanna pick one up, go there =D

Holy crap, how could I forget.. Anybody seen the ZELDA ADVERT ON TV? =D
Saw it once during Big Brother last night (Don't shoot me!) and once right before Cheez TV was about to start this morning.

It's pretty cool. Shows a real life Forbiddon Fortress, and talks about crap, then shows some game footage of Link sailing, using the leaf, and stuff. Then goes back to the real life footage to show a girl in robes (Link's sister) saying that Link's on this quest to save her. Then you get a box shot, an the announcer proclaims hurry, buy the Zelda pack for a limited edition including OoT and Master Quest. And below, it's got "LIMITED TIME"

Nice.

I've been seeing the commercial since last friday.
it's heaps cool. just watch pokemon (and cheez tv), and the commercial comes on every ad break!
that's pretty cool.

Shifty:yeah, i think you'd be ahead of me now. I just got up to the Tower of the Gods when you posted. I thought that this was the end of the game, you know? I thought the tower was where you got the Triforce, and weher you battle Gannon and stuff. It just turns out to be another dungeon. My sh*t turned cold when the you go underwater, see Hyrule, get the Master Sword and Zelda comes is revealed! Man! I think that was the best level ever. And how cool was it  when it's all grey and lifeless, and wehn you pull out the sword, all the colour returns, man! I the temple was where i could finally get 10 knight's crest to get the hurricane spin! yeah baby! That thing is cool. Use it until it stops, without bumping into anything, and see how Link gets all cross-eyed! Haha! Right now, I'm just getting Medli to the Earth Temple, But I got more exploring to do.

Back to Zelda I go!
And The Matrix Reloaded is upon us!

Geez it's soo cold now.

Ow man, since everyone is doing it, I'll have to do my game collection as well.  And it will take awhile.  When I have it up, be sure to check my Dreamcast games!  And damn, someone took AiAi *shakes fist*.  I took AiAi08.

I'm taking my time with OoT.  I've done two dungeons, but enjoying fishing at the moment.  And I'm collecting hearts as well.  Moooooo!!  This game is going to rank very high on my "best game I've played" list.  Very high.

No fishing in TWW?  That sucks.  I had fun last night, when I caught a 7 pound fish!  I know I can catch a bigger fish.  I almost got another big one, maybe 8 pounds, but it got away before I almost reeled it in.

I would never fish in real life since I find it cruel, but in a game, it's fun!  Now if I can continue with the story, I'm kinda stuck.

BTW, has anyone seen the Mario Party pack?  I saw it in a specialise games store yesterday (not EB), and it was a yellow box with Mario Party, a controller for about $30!  Can't remember the price exactly, and maybe something else is included in the box.  I seriously thought of buying it, a cheap way to get an extra controller for monkey ball, but the last thing I need is another game (and I don't really want mario party).
