Gaming Post 34: Xenoblade Chronicles (3DS)

The random number generator has chosen a very good game for me to write about, but it’s a very long game that some people may intend to play eventually, so I’ll try not to spoil too much about the story.

The game I’m going to be writing about this time is Xenoblade Chronicles 3D for the New Nintendo 3DS. It was originally released for the Nintendo Wii. If you’re scrolling through Zelgerath.com, everything after this paragraph is concealed behind a “Continue reading” tag, but if you’ve clicked straight into this article, there is no such protection from minor spoilers.

THE FIRST EVER “CAPSLOCKE” OF LEARN WITH POKÉMON: TYPING ADVENTURE!!!

AND PROBABLY THE ONLY ONE!

CAPS

HELLO, I AM ZELGERATH, AND I RECENTLY PLAYED THROUGH A SHORT GAME CALLED LEARN WITH POKÉMON: TYPING ADVENTURE.

I BOUGHT THE GAME DURING AN ANIME CONVENTION, AND I HAVE SINCE BEEN WAITING FOR THE PERFECT TIME TO UNLEASH MY NEWEST “CHALLENGE SCENARIO” UPON THE WORLD.

THE SPECIAL CHALLENGE IS CALLED A “CAPSLOCKE”. MUCH LIKE A NUZLOCKE CHALLENGE SCENARIO THAT SOME PEOPLE PERFORM FROM TIME TO TIME, A “CAPSLOCKE” HAS A SPECIAL RULE BEYOND THE ACTUAL COMPLETION OF THE GAME. THE RULE IS NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE TO RECORD AND UPLOAD YOUR GAMEPLAY, BUT YOU MUST ONLY WRITE ABOUT THIS FEAT USING UPPERCASE LETTERS AND PUNCTUATION. NO LOWERCASE LETTERS ARE ALLOWED!

THIS IS WHY I AM TYPING THIS COMPLETELY IN CAPITAL LETTERS. IT’S NOT EXACTLY DIFFICULT, BUT IT IS TYPING THEMED, AND THIS GAME IS A TYPING GAME.

YOU MIGHT BE THINKING THAT THIS ENDEAVOR IS COMPLETELY SILLY, AND YOU WOULD NOT BE WRONG, BUT LET’S COMPARE THIS TO MY MOST RECENT CHALLENGE SCENARIO THAT I MADE UP…

IT’S CALLED A MAX RUN, AND THE VIDEO ABOVE SHOULD EXPLAIN ALL OF IT TO YOU.

NOW, YOU MIGHT BE UNSURE ABOUT WHICH CHALLENGE SCENARIO IS THE SILLIER OF THE TWO. I SURE AM UNSURE. THIS CAPSLOCKE IS THE SPIRITUAL SUCCESSOR OF THE MAX RUN.

POKÉMON TYPING ADVENTURE WAS PRETTY FUN, AND I ACTUALLY LEARNED A THING OR TWO ABOUT HOW PEOPLE SAY CERTAIN LETTERS AND PUNCTUATION IN THE UNITED KINGDOM.

FEEL FREE TO WATCH. YOU MIGHT NOT REGRET IT!

(YOU MIGHT NEED TO INCREASE THE VIDEO QUALITY FOR A BETTER EXPERIENCE; IT’S USUALLY A GEAR IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER)

THANKS FOR WATCHING IF YOU DID! AND DON’T WORRY… THE NEXT ARTICLE ON THIS WEBSITE WILL CONTAIN LOWERCASE LETTERS AGAIN.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, THIS IS ZELGERATH, SIGNING OUT!

“NO SAIL ZELDA WIND WAKER CHALLENGE”

Hello readers! My friends convinced me to start working on recording Let’sPlays this year and so we have recently started up doing a challenge that has been on my quest list for some time.

The challenge is to play through The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker without using a sail at any point and with only using the warp song the minimum possible amount of times and still finish the game. My friend Bryan will play through the land content and I’ll do all the ocean content. We’ll also be in a room full of commentators. We’ll commentate throughout the whole thing.

Here's Dave and Bryan...

And me, Zelgerath.
And me, Zelgerath.

People used to say that the Wind Waker overworld was too big and empty, but I didn’t mind very much, which is why I came up with this plan. Keep in mind that the Wii U version that we’re using has an increased speed both in sailing and cruising and there is also slightly less sailing to do in the game, but the original plan was for us to play through the GameCube version. I just couldn’t get my recording method working in time, but this should be good I think.

EDIT: We have completed the entire quest. You can watch them all in the following playlist if you want, although I must warn you not to give it your full attention as it gets arguably pretty boring at times.

The audio mix for the first 8 Episodes was a little rough, but we steadily improved as we went on. The playlist continues into the remainder of the series with better audio.

Our next Let’sPlay will be the obscure title, “Learn with Pokémon: Typing Adventure” For the Nintendo DS, imported from Europe.

I hope you enjoyed if you decided to watch. We’ll keep at it!
