[Let's Play] Link's Awakening DX! Part 19: It's Over!
Hello, everyone! As I'm sure you've guessed by now, my name's Terrendos. Of the dozens of popular game franchises, my personal favorite has always been Zelda. It has adventure, action, drama, all the things that make a video game great. My first foray into the Zelda universe came with Ocarina of Time (I'm young, I know.) I got it in fifth grade, but as it was also one of my first games, I did not do terribly well. I got stuck in the Dodongo's Cavern, I believe.
A year later, I saw a game for sale called "The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX." The game reminded me of the brief fun I had found in Ocarina of Time before getting stuck, and so I purchased it. Three months later, I managed to complete it. That small victory drove me to pick up once more Ocarina of Time and play it to completion, though it took me nearly a year (bloody Water Temple.) Since then I have loved the series, purchasing every new game in the franchise and every remake I could find.
And so, after seeing the excellent Let's Play of Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, and 3, and after reading through the spectacular Let's Play of Knights of the Old Republic 2 on the SomethingAwful Forums, I decided to do my own tribute to the game that began my love of the Zelda series. When I finish Link's Awakening DX, I suspect that I will record a playthrough of Ocarina of Time as well, but I'm not sure. No promises. Also, I asked mod permission to host this thread. I would suggest that you do the same if it is your intention to do a Let's Play of your own.
This isn't a game that lends itself to an interactive Let's Play, I know, but there will be a couple of junctures where I'll ask you guys an opinion, and this will affect how I ultimately play the game. Hope you guys enjoy!
If you have any requests for stuff I should do, let me know. I intend to try and get everything in the game that I can get except the picture of Link stealing. And if you'd like me to give you a shout out, let me know.
