Playing Zelda on the cheap

After some serious consideration I decided that my 3DS purchase would have to wait. Even after the price-drop Nintendo's handheld still costs a little over $250 here and with a dual stick redesign looking like a real possibility I just couldn't justify it to myself.

That said the rerelease of Ocarina of Time got me really excited to play that game again. Luckily for the more financially challenged gamers there is still the Virtual Console version. So I decided to go with that one instead. Of course there are no new textures like in the 3DS port but the emulation is really good, making the game look a lot sharper then I remember it looking on N64. The Gamecube controller also works very well for the game, it's such a comfy controller. Playing the Ocarina with the C-stick feels a little awkward but pulling back on the stick to ready the slingshot and then releasing it to fire feels great, I like it a lot better then how it worked on the N64 controller.

I have just spent two hours with it so far but overall it feels great to be back in Hyrule. For those readers who are interested in my rediscovery of a decade old game, I will keep writing about my experience as I fight my way to Ganon.
