Bri’s Best of Season 2 – E08 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Part 1

When I was a tiny little lady I tried my hand at several RPGs. Final Fantasy VII. Brave Fencer Musashi. Chrono Trigger. Fallout. The list goes on, and I never beat ANY of them. Then The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time fell into my hands…and I was finally able to beat an RPG!

I was finally able to beat an RPG over a dozen times.

Then Educating [Geeks] gave me the opportunity to introduce someone else to my favorite game of all time, and for that reason The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is my E[G] Best of Season 2 pick.

  • 2:30 to 4:00  – Right off the bat we start discussing controllers, different consoles, and the fact that Alice appears to have some kind of bootleg equipment with missing buttons.
  • 7:45 to 8:40  – Link is a no-good thief.
  • 9:28 to 10:30  – There is minimal voice acting in this game, and we love it. Instead they use sound effects, fonts, and music.
  • 15:25 to 15:55  – Unbeknownst to her, Alice summarizes every single Zelda game.
  • 20:54 to 22:25, 23:25 to 24:50  – We start to discuss all of the female characters in Zelda…which quickly devolves into Navi impersonations. Bonus: The Great Fairies *shudders.*

Bri’s Favorite Drinking Game Rules:

  • 34:05 to 35:18  – Instructions on what to do if you start playing the wrong version of Zelda. AKA shotgun that beer.
  • 36:42 to 37:05  – Take a drink every time you accidentally make Link fall off of something.
  • 38:33-39:00 – Drink a White Russian when you find a randomly placed cow.
  • 42:55-44:16 – THE OWL.

 

My favorite item from the geek supplies ……

Ocarina

Megan and I were drooling over Ocarinas at last year’s Phoenix Comicon. Alas, we waffled too long and didn’t nab one…luckily they’re available online!

Bonus favorite:

The Skyward Heart.

All of that was just the first half of our foray into the land of Hyrule, so if you’re itching to play you should start NOW…that way you’ll be caught up when we release The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Part 2 later this year.
