I'll make this interesting eventually.
Bit 'Bout Me
Hi, I'm Mel.
I'm a short 16-year-old gal, standing at about 5'1".
I'm currently in my junior year of high school.
I'm in my fourth year of Spanish; I'm also taking a programming class. I took two years of graphic design, and a year of web design. So, I guess you could say I know a bit about computers, but I'm not going around thinking I know everything there is to know.
I'm on my school's cross country team and the track team. I'm slow, but that's okay.
My friends and I are in a fake band. It started when we had to make a project for our driver's ed class, and the teacher said we could pretty much do whatever we want. We changed the lyrics to Check Yes Juliet ("DRIVE BABY DRIVE!") and our fake band name is Highway Hypnosis. Our fake band logo is the RxR sign, except it's HxH. I must say, we'd be pretty legit...if any of us had any musical talent. At all.
I enjoy music. Alternative, rock, oldies. I can hardly stand to listen to rap or hip hop or whatever you want to call it. Unless, you know, it's a good song. Like, "Where Is the Love?" I love that song. I don't listen to pop much either. I do have Aaron Carter on my iPod. No Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers. Give me a break.
I don't obsess over clothes and shoes and hair and nails and makeup. I do obsess over cute boys.
MORE TO COME!
LoZ Games I Own
ATTENTION: You really don't have to read all of this. It's just me rambling about my childhood memories.
Having two older brothers, I pretty much grew up with video games; my mom still has home videos somewhere of me, holding an NES controller, thinking I was playing the game, when I was really just watching my brothers...
ANYWAY, I started actually playing around five or six, when my brothers would let me ride Epona around Hyrule Field in OoT. As I got older, it went from riding Epona, to actually figuring out how stuff worked in the game, to completely familiarizing myself with every location, character, item, song, and whatever else I could find in the game... except for the actual storyline. Remember, I was still running around on my brother's already completed file. And then I created my own.
The first thing I thought when I started my new game was, "Well this sucks. Where's my sword?" The next thing I thought was, "Where are my items?" This was followed by, "Okay, I got the ocarina, now why can't I warp anywhere?" I was still pretty naive at that point. I thought I knew everything there was to know about the game... Slowly but surely, I got the hang of it. And the legend of Zelda was born in my life.
As my interest in the series increased, my brothers' decreased; nowadayz, my brothers have all but forgotten the Zelda games (they're too old, too "cool" for video games), but never fear, I picked up where they left off.
First OoT, then MM, WW, OoS (I think?), TP, PH, the original, AoL, and Spirit Tracks have made their ways into my heart. There are still more to come... Link's Awakening, ALttP, OoA, Minish Cap, Four Swords and FSA shall come into my collection someday. And let's not forget the new Zelda Wii! I'm so excited!
ATTENTION: Ramblings end here (sort of). Now to your featured presentation.
- The Legend of Zelda
- I played this game for about 20 minutes to get used to it; I'll be going back and actually playing it soon.
- Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
- Same as above
- Ocarina of Time
- Majora's Mask
- I didn't like it at first, but now it's my favorite. I'm in the Stone Tower Temple, and I've gotten every item except Great Fairy's Sword, Giant Mask, and Fierce Deity's Mask. I'll beat it once I stop running around and doing every side quest (I love the side quests!).
- Oracle of Seasons
- I got to the 3rd dungeon and lost my game. I'm looking for it fervently.
- The Wind Waker
- I've beaten it once, and now I'm on the Second Quest, getting all the figurines and whatnot. Hopefully I'll 100% this without the extensive use of a guide.
- Twilight Princess
- Like OoT, I've beaten it many times. This is the first game on which I've completed the 3-heart challenge without any fairies, and also the first game I've beaten without any help or use of a guide (neither of these accomplishments are really significant, since this game is pretty easy).
- Phantom Hourglass
- I got annoyed that I had to do the Temple of the Ocean King so many times, so I stopped playing. I'll finish it eventually...
- Spirit Tracks
- I got this game for Christmas and I was zooming through it until I got stuck on the last level in the Tower of Spirits. I have the guide, but I don't want to use it until I beat the game. I've made it this far without a guide...
- Oh, by the way, this game is a joke. Zelda is a brat. And what's with revealing Cole's identity ten minutes into the game? He barely had any buildup. Oh yeah, and TRAINS? REALLY? It doesn't really have the feel of a Zelda game to me. Nevertheless, I like it. It's a lot of fun. But I thought the Tower of Spirits was going to be another Temple of the Ocean King deal and you had to keep repeating what you already did and I was going to punch my game in the face. Spirit Tracks is like the improved Phantom Hourglass. Wow, this is a long bullet. I'll stop now.
My top favorites:
- Majora's Mask
- Ocarina of Time & The Wind Waker
- Twilight Princess
Miscellaneous Info about the Games
These are some random tidbits, opinions, and theories I have or believe about the Zelda games.
- Majora's Mask has the best music.
- While the cel-shaded graphics of the Wind Waker weren't received very well, I think it made the game more fun. However, I also believe that since the graphics have advanced, cel-shading should be reserved for DS games.
- Nintendo should not have Link pursue any romantic interests in the games whatsoever. Things such as being "engaged" to Ruto and how he and Ilia were "close friends" are fine. But Link is a lone man. He's too busy saving the universe to have time for a girlfriend.
- Nintendo should make a "deluge" game that shows the flooding of Hyrule. Even if you win, you don't win. Hyrule gets destroyed no matter what you do. There could be dark undertones throughout the whole game, kind of like in Majora's Mask.
- I believe in the Split Timeline Theory, and I actually have a hard time remembering that it has never been confirmed by Nintendo.
- I believe that Termina is a parallel universe to Hyrule, connected through the Lost Woods; Link was looking for Navi at the beginning of Majora's Mask; after the events of Majora's Mask, Link continues his search for Navi, gets lost in the Lost Woods, dies, turns into a Stalfos, and becomes the Hero's Shade in Twilight Princess.
- I don't know how I feel about the theory that the blue figure is the spirit of the Master Sword.
I'll write down more as I think of it.
Yay, tables! Uh... I have this section here, but I don't know how to make them. Hehe!
I don't know why people have these sections, 'cause isn't that what the talk page is for? Whatever. I have it here. Go ahead and sign, if you want.
- Yeah ...that makes sense, I guess. XD -User3000
My page isn't that great, but I'll be working on it. If you see an error on my page such as a spelling or grammar mistake, typo, etc., please tell me, because I'm obsessive compulsive when it comes to this and I'll make mistakes without realizing it and it drives me NUTS.
If you want to talk, I love discussing all things Zelda and anything else you might want to talk about. Leave me a message on my talk page, or send me an e-mail (once I make up a separate e-mail address. Can't be too cautious on the internet!).
