This weekend is going to be a special one for me. I’ve decided to dust off my 3DS and finally finish off Ocarina of Time, after abandoning it halfway through the Forest Temple. But what about you guys? What are you going to be playing this weekend?
To be perfectly honest, I had forgotten all about Ocarina of Time, until my brother arrived and started playing it on my 3DS. Instantly, like a spoiled brat who only wants what others have, I had a real urge to start playing it again. It’s going to be a struggle, since the both of us want to play, but I’m determined to try and finish the game before the end of the weekend.
My brother is ahead of me, just at the water temple — the most deviously unfair dungeon the Zelda franchise has ever seen — and that’s sparked a long dormant sibling rivalry that tracks all the way back to playing Secret of Mana on the SNES, when we’d have to take turns on our own games and race each other to the finish. If he manages to finish to before me, the 12-year-old inside me will be crushed.
Anyway, that’s my weekend. What are you guys up to?
