  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Listening to: the song in the journal edit
  • Playing: Hyrule Warriors
  • Drinking: Mocha latte
*Edit 1/24/15* I forgot to hit notify watchers. My fault ^^;

First off, I want to thank everyone for their words of support earlier and their thoughts. I'm honestly very grateful :glomp:

OK, some of you may remember my Favorite Boss Fights Themes in Video Games journal I wrote some time ago, and how the Final Boss music from Ocarina of Time was in that list. It's one of my personal favorite scores from the game and the series.

I think it just got dethroned...by a score from a game that's not even canon.
I just beat Hyrule Warriors last night...twice. The first time I tried to send a message through Miiverse, but it messed up the ending sequence, skipping everything to my final results. So I tried again with success, but that's not the point. The point...is that song you hear during your fight against the final boss.

This song is the best most recent example of how a score in a boss fight should sound. It's adrenaline-pumping, urgent-sounding, and heck 'o fun to listen to! The instruments were well-used and it fits that fight perfectly!
Fair warning, if you haven't beaten or AT LEAST attempted to beat the Legends Mode in Hyrule Warriors, this link is a very, VERY big spoiler. Listen at your own risk! -->[link]

*End EDIT*

Hey! It's been a minute, huh? The first couple of weeks of 2015 have been rather...eventful, so to speak.

First off, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year :) Apologies for being twenty days late >_> There are a few reasons for that. Two of those reasons being Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros. Wii U. I got both games for Christmas and I bought a Wii U and a Link amiibo (how could I not?) the following Saturday. I've been playing both games when ever I had free time. I haven't beaten Hyrule Warriors yet because Ganon keeps killing me and my allies :X, so I'm leveling up in Adventure Mode. And the music... Magnificent!!
There is a lot of stuff to do in Smash Bros. :o I'm still excited about those 8-player battles! They're crazy! :D

I haven't turned on my Wii U in the past few days. I guess I needed a short break from gaming for a minute. That...and my grandfather passed away. I can't remember the last time I was that shaken when I got the news; I couldn't even work the rest of the week. What's more, one of my cousins passed away the day before he did. Their funerals were this past weekend. What I way to start the new year, huh?

But I'm OK now. I'm OK.

Well, that was a bit about my life, and why I haven't updated until now. I've been on and off DA during these dates, to calm down and get my art muse going, but that was pretty much it.  I would like to be a bit more active on DA than I have been for a while; I'm going to TRY and get back into the weekly updates for Astral Cross, if the shots and paneling doesn't get too complicated, like the last page I posted :dizzy:

Me and these short journals ^^; Until next time, stay gold. I pray that 2015 is starting off well for all of you :glomp:

...uhh...Well, then >.> You know what's funny is I recently read that Aonuma said no to Tingle being in Hyrule Warriors. Guess he changed his mind :shrug: Tingle doesn't bother me that much, anyway. I'm more excited about Young Link and those new costumes! :D :D

They probably could've picked a better character, but I'm not too bothered by Tingle.

...Mostly because Young Link is also there packing the FIERCE FRIGGIN' DEITY'S MASK!! 8D

Hey I meant to ask, since I'm interested in getting it, what do you think about the two characters in Hyrule Warriors, Cia and Lana?

The two look pretty cool to me. It's neat to have another female villain in the Zelda series (since Veran is the only one), though I'll say that Cia's outfit threw me off  :O_o: But then, I think she's a seductress, so it's fine. Lana's outfit puzzled me, too. And the fact that those two knew each other before the events of the game was obvious. Lana's extremely chipper personality is a bit...meh :hmm:, but hopefully the game will explain or make up for it, so I won't judge.
That's all I can say thus far.

Ah. I asked because I've heard some people complain about Lana, and I thought I'd ask you, since you're one of my friends who loves the series.

Guess this is the part were I should have said a while back that I got Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess ^^;

Actually, so did I. That's why I didn't want to judge too much before playing the game.

Out of curiosity, if you played/beaten either one, which one do you prefer and why?

Have you tried out Demon Legacy yet?  I'm telling you...  don't let the simple combat system fool you (it highly resembles the early FF titles so I never complained one bit ^-^ ), it has a REALLY good story that is comparable to the True Ending of Record of Agarest War, which is a damn good thing since rarely do I EVER see ANY good RPGs out there and this one surprised me with it's good, emotional story that literally made me cry at one certain part I won't spoil for you, it really did... T_T

Not yet. Something was up with my computer so I had to finagle with it for a minute, and it recently went through a forced system update :X But I will try it :nod:

Hold the phone... You know about Agarest War?!? O_O
