Thank you for those tips. They really helped. I completed the game! You are right. Ganondorf's palace was easy. Just like the moon in Majora's Mask. An easier version of the moon children's games. I did have to fight Ganon twice, because I kept running out of magic to fire arrows at him, then slice his tail.
The ending was kinda a let down. But it makes sense now, with Navi flying away. Why Link went off in search of her. Majora's Mask really does pick up where Ocarina of Time leaves off.
What's awesome about the final battle with Ganon is that there are several ways to beat him. You can use bombs or arrows or whatever to hit his tail. But if you have the Biggoron Sword, then you can somersault in between his legs and just hit his tail from behind. That's usually what I do because I find it hilarious xD
Personally, I really liked the ending because it is the setup for Majora's Mask. That's just my opinion tho and I can see why you didn't like the ending as much.
As you're probably aware, sometimes blogs get caught up in the newsfeed and as a result, I don't get to read every single blog post that gets put up, so thanks for sending me these. I'll check them out. BTW, we should plan something for your prologue chapters with Greg and C-Money!
You offered to tell me on that blog how to beat the boss. I thought I'd reply here, in case the blog gets lost on the feed or something.
That would be great! The whole dungeon is confusing to me. A friend did loan me a guide book just for the last dungeon, and where all the heart pieces are to give me extra help, but her daughter ripped out the pages with the boss battle and drew on them.
Any tips you have will be very appreciated. I'm desperate to complete Ocarina of Time, because I've been playing it since N64. The version I play now is the 3DS version, if that makes any difference.
I did manage to make it through the dungeon a couple of times, but because Ganondorf kept killing me, seemed pointless to fight my way to him, if I wasn't going to actually fight him. So I stopped. On the 3DS version, I've never bothered to do the dungeon. Just saved and quit.
Okay, this is how to beat Ganondorf (on the N64 version, which is what I have always played it on).
Before you even go to fight him, make sure you completed the quest where you get the Biggoron Sword because it makes the boss fight a LOT easier. Also make sure you are stocked up on Fairies or potions to help you during your fight.
Make sure to do this in either of the four corners of the room otherwise Ganondorf will make the floor fall. When Ganondorf throws energy at you, you need to correctly time your sword strike against the ball of energy BEFORE it hits you. Think of it like volleyball. He will throw the ball to you and you have to hit it right back at him. You just have to use your reflexes and good timing to beat him. Now when Ganondorf throws the projectile where his energy attack turns purple and a bunch of balls of energy get launched at you at once. When he does this, make sure to power yourself up with a spin attack and let it loose when the attack is about to hit you. Hits them all right back at him.
After you hit him with energy, you have to shoot a light arrow at him. Navi isn't there to help you in this battle so you won't be able to target him and launch the arrow. You have to aim and shoot at him.
After following these steps, you have beaten Ganondorf. But the game isn't over yet! If you complete this battle and you still need help on the finale, then let me know!
Also, the 3DS version is a lot easier than the original, so I'm sure you'd be fine on the final dungeon haha. My friend completed the Water Temple on the 3DS version in 30 minutes, and he said that a lot of the dungeons were made to be easier (probably cuz Nintendo thought that the difficulty level of the original game would be too much for a mainstream young audience today. At least that's MY theory haha).
Oh! I was going about the fight all wrong. Using my shield to deflect. Judging by what you have told me, the fight seems a lot like that mini-boss in Forsaken Fortress in Wind Waker, the one you beat to get the skull hammer.
I did notice the game was much easier. You know the temple behind the graveyard? I hated that temple. I could beat it, but sometimes I just couldn't be bothered with it. On 3DS did it on first try.
I can't wait to fight him! Will be a while. I was shopping, and found GTA: San Andreas remastered on PS3. It is completely disorienting playing the game with PS3 game controls, but who knows I might actually get to complete flight school this time, without getting someone to help me.
Wow! Those look great! Thank you so much for making those! I actually used to make Gaia avatars for Greg Ryder way back in the day. You can check them out on his character page if you ever want to see what he looks like.
You'd be surprised as to how accurate his original look is compared to yours.
I am uncertain what your reaction is, but you once asked me of my assessment of the Seattle music scene, which to this very day, is as strong as it was in the 90s. Well Scott Weiland was found dead this evening. Though STP weren't originally from Seattle their presence here is strongly felt, and I can say people are mourning for his passing at this very moment.
From my prespective it was a long time coming, I was young when Cobain died, and that struck me a lot going up just considering his passing when I was young, even before moving to Seattle. When Layne Staley died in 2002 I was saddened, as I attended his very last show before his death and it hit me the hardest just seeing how it all ended. Mike Starr was another one from Alice in Chains who passed as well that tore me apart. All these years the members of the Seattle Sound movement I've always predicted that Scott Weiland would be next, honestly. It sounds bad but I thought it would be him. Back then I always thought Vedder would be the next one, but he's doing well, so the next logical conclusion was Weiland. Anyways I know this is seemingly random but I know that you have fondness for the Seattle Music scene and I thought I would just send out this update.
Many businesses have shutdown for the day to honour his passing, and there are people mourning throughout the city. People did this for Kurt and Layne, and Starr as well. He has the solidarity of the entire city, just as they did.
