Lost and Confused

Posted by Link On February - 23 - 2007 Comments Off

I’m not going to lie. I’m pretty well lost right now. The water temple confuses me to no end. I just don’t get it. I had the water lowered, finally figured out how to raise it, only to find that I needed it lowered. Once I get it lowered I discover that I need it in the middle, and once it’s at the half way point, I realize that I forgot to get something when  the water was lowered, which means I have to raise the water again to lower it. By the time I get here I have no recollection of what rooms I have been in, and what rooms I still need to go through. And these stupid jumping spiders keep coming back… grr… I’ve been at this for 3 hours now… I don’t know… it’s just not working… … … maybe I need a walkthrough…

I’ve been standing here, on the beach, for 3 weeks. That’s 21 days. That’s 504 hours. That’s 30240 minutes. Which is equvilent to 1814400. You wanna know how bored I am? I did all that math in my head! SIX TIMES!!! I’m tired, I’m hungry, I’m BORED OUT OF MY MIND, and I have a REALLY BAD SUNBURN!!! Who leaves a game paused for 3 weeks?!?!? This is worse then solitary confinement. The first few hours were fun. I got to hang out here on the beach, soaking up the sun rays, enjoying the sound of the ocean. I started to worry at the 12 hour mark. After you’ve been paused for  [ Read More ]

The Jungle

Posted by DonkeyKong On February - 1 - 2007 Comments Off

Forest life rocks. You don’t know how awesome it is to live in a jungle. It’s amazing. The only thing better then living in the jungle is a side scrolling game. You may think I’m a bit off the wall with this, but I’m serious. Side scrolling is great, I don’t see why they don’t do more of it. Just because you can have a three dimensional world doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. Don’t get me wrong, Donkey Kong 64 was an amazing game, but I’m still a big fan of the classics. The first original Donkey Kong Country was one of the greatest games to grace the world. (Just because I am a bias source doesn’t mean my opinion is useless!) Those were the good old days, riding rhinos, swinging on vines, collecting banananananananas… Ah, bananas! I love bananas. I’m not happy with these new gigs that my  [ Read More ]
