Ocarina of Time Revisited

Wow! just Wow.

For the past week or so I have been having cravings to play Zelda: ocarina of time. So through the wonders on the internet I dug out an emulator. I also dug out my 360 wireless adaptor.

I set that bitch up!

Plugged my PC into my TV, set the Graphics to all maximum settings, and set the Controller like an N64 pad. And started it up.

Amazing, I never new that all those details were possible despite the backgrounds and some of the textures being a bit pixelly its flawless, and plays really well with the 360 controller!

Here's to Retro Games and HD.

Painful Moments in Gaming: Zelda: Ocarina of time

*Oh spoilers, but if you haven't fucking played it by now, I have no sympathy for you and I really shouldn't cater to you*
There is a bit in the game later on, where you have to get by some whirlpools by equipping and unequipping the "iron boots":

Time it just wrong and you get a KO from being sucked into the whirlpool and you return to the start of the whirlpool. Which happened over and over and over, keep in mind that to equip or unequip the boots means menu juggling, so it was getting more and more frustrating, till eventually I, out of rage, grabbed the controller and twisted it.  As I did so, the the 2 moulded halves of the controller prised apart:
However it didn't snap, or break... It did however revert back to it's original state very quickly, the controller snapped shut, the 2 sides closed together pinching a strip of skin on the palm of my hand. Well, not just pinching it actually scissoring the strip right off, forcing me to wear a bandage for a week …
