Do you like Zelda? Do you like 2D overhead Zelda?

ZeldaClassic was brought to my attention by Onslaught a few years ago. It's a project that started off as a faithful recreation of the original Legend of Zelda that could be played on PC, but it evolved into what you can call a Zelda-maker; basically, think RPG maker but for Zelda. You can make your own quests complete with scripting and custom tiles, or you can play quests others have made. There's a tight community that's revolved around this program for years so there's plenty of assets and fangames to try.

ZC got back on my radar due to the new release of version 2.50, and I've finally given it the whirl I should have back when I first heard of it. I have no intention of making my own quest but I am taking a few custom quests for a spin and I like what I've played. A couple of quests worth looking into:

Quote:The Hero of Dreams, my first quest on Zelda Classic. I have been working on the game since January 2004. This epic quest is filled with so many things to do. I put a lot of side quests in the quest so it can have a feel to most Zelda games. The storyline fits into the major storyline and I do try to connect them all together. I spent a lot of time on the storyline and I hope you like it. This is what you can expect from the quest:

-Travel through huge Forests, islands, caves, deserts, graveyards, mountains, towns, as well as Dreams.
-Come face to face to some of the old Hero's of Hyrule.
-Meet different cultures and races of Hyrule.
-Fight some original custom bosses like Wolfblin and King Dodongo.
-Play some great mini games like bow and arrow target practice and rafting.
-See some original puzzles never seen in ZC.
-Huge Dungeons with different themes.
-and More!

Quote:Over 2 years in the making, this ambitious duo quest by DarkFlameWolf and Peteo has finally been completed. Lost Isle takes you on a journey to a deserted island where the formal inhabitants have suffered a catastrophic event and all that remains is the dead and the decaying. A sinister story unfolds the further you explore the island and evil secrets are revealed as you get closer and closer to the true evil that is conspiring against you. You will travel through ghost towns, graveyards, swamps, forests, volcanos, wastelands and canyons in your search for answers and a way off this haunted island. With one gigantic world to explore, five huge dungeons, an entire island-wide cave system, many misc. dungeons to explore, optional triforce pieces, hidden secrets and lurking ghosts; this adventure will test your very limits as an explorer. Only the true intrepid players will see the quest through and claim the much -deserved ending.

Quote:Stranded is a large ZC 2.50 quest which uses the basic tileset available with ZC 2.50 as well as this version's new items, enemies and possibilities. I recommend using the RC4 release to play it (it hasn't been tested on earlier releases).

* A long journey consisting of a minimum of 20+ hours of gameplay
* 20+ dungeons in total (not saying how many exactly to keep some element of surprise)
* 3 different overworld areas * 30+ midis * 200+ text strings
* Custom enemies
* Challenging but not frustratingly hard difficulty
* A balanced mix of fighting and puzzle solving
* Many secrets to unravel

And my personal spotlight:

I've put about an a hour or two into Souls of Wisdom and I'm really enjoying it. It's promised to be massive both in its overworlds and the amount of dungeons. There's adecent mix of new and old in here too. The game is a reimagining of the very first Zelda, making more direct connections to the games that have come after it (or before it in the timeline). What I do like so far is that the game gives you a decent chunk of the overworld to explore. I've gotten the boomerang from the first dungeon and that opened up even more areas, not to mention that you have access to the Dark World almost immediately. Looks like it might be living up to its promises of scope and content (about 20+ hours worth, it says), and there's even a sequel already in the works.

We'll celebrate it. Because Capcom won't!

I'm going to do a playthrough of the classic series (and probably X too). Anyone else?

Quick update.

Sunday: I swung by the office around 11:50 pm to pick up the mac-mini so I could work from home on Monday in anticipation of the hurricane. Worked most of that night into the early morning in case of future power outages.
Monday: Power started getting real spotty around 6, started losing what I was working on so I gave it a rest. Power went off about an hour later.
Tuesday: Roads weren't as bad, tried calling in to see if the office had power; it didn't. Spent most of the day transferring the more expensive perishables to the freezer downstairs. Neighbor let us have some amps from his generator to keep the freezer running a few hours each day.
Wednesday: Relatively nice outside, still no power at home or office. Spent most of the day picking up tree branches and other shit that fell.
Thursday: Wake up to hear my dad is in the hospital and my brother has backed out into my car that I just signed the papers to start financing a week ago. He was going in for a stomach ultrasound and freaked out about being short of breath, so they did an emergency angioplasty but he's fine. I take a nap. On the way to the car to visit my dad in the hospital, I somehow repeat the same spine injury I had back in 2008 when I couldn't walk for over a week. I end up hobbling to ER to get a shot in my spine. I'm prescribed naproxen, hydrocodone, and diazepam, just like Solid Snake.
Friday: I spend the majority of the day in and out of painkiller-induced consciousness. My dog steps on my junk.
Saturday: I get tired of eating peanut butter sandwiches and offer to take my family to Bobby Flay's Burger Palace. I have a tasty burger with queso on it and spend quite a bit of money.
Sunday: Starting to prepare for the arrival of the generator we ordered way too late, which we expect to come on monday. Around 3:30, the power and cable comes back for pretty much the entirety of NJ using Rotten Electric. I still can't touch my knees.

Repost time! This is written better than KIJ1 and 2, but it's still not as good as 4!

I'm posting this again for completion's sake. It's still up on fanfiction.net, but that's sites formatting changes over the years retroactively wrought havoc on the story's formatting.

I've delayed reposting the early stories in KIJ, but interested parties wanted to read it so...here we go!

WARNING: This is the first thing I ever wrote, and it certainly reflects that. This is not indicative of my writing abilities today. I hold on to this because I don't like to forget how much I've improved, and also because some of the stuff in here is still canon to the newer stories. One day I will remake this into something I can read without cringing. That goes for KIJ2 and 3 as well.

Yet another revival from old meda. Basically posting weird and interesting things I come across on the internet. Might make a real world alternative too.

Today's encounter: Deleted articles with freaky titles on wikipedia. Yes, someone is keeping track.

Couple of highlights...

Quote:Why Won't My Parakeet Eat My Diarrhea

Quote:Video Games in the 1800s

Quote:That one girl Charlie Brown likes with the red hair who they called Heather in the cartoons where the adults sound like Wee Wah Waw Wah

Shockingly detailed.

Quote:Players of 3D Space Cadet Pinball Who Can't Get It Up To Satisfy Their Wives

Confession page?

Quote:Nude Hippo

As opposed to clothed hippos?

Quote:Homosexual necrophilia in the mallard duck

....this is a thing?
