Considered by many to be one of the gaming industry's crowning achievements, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo 64 has led to many a Zelda fan devoting hour after hour into the game. One eager Japanese fan has managed to find an obscure glitch allowing him to initially skip the first dungeon, skip becoming Adult link, and ultimately complete the entire game as Young Link in approximately 24 minutes. How he managed to do this can be seen in the video above and be sure to pay close attention to the 5:20 mark and especially the 15:30 mark.
While the video is nothing short of amazing, I find myself a little saddened to see a game that I put so much work into as a teenager being obliterated in a mere 25 minutes. Of course, I'll never forget the hours spent fishing for the Roach, chasing Poes around around Hyrule field on my trusty stead Epona, and diving into the Gerudo Valley, just for fun.
By the way, I'm Michael, and I'll be helping Emma keep this blog up-to-date while she continues to concentrate with her promising craft-work. Hit the jump to find out a little more about me and why I'm here.
My name's Michael Westgarth and I've been Emma's boyfriend for the past three years and we live together in our new flat, after recently emigrating to the Netherlands. While Emma ismostly focused on her hand-crafts as her main form of entertainment, creativity and, hopefully, income, I am a writer. I've been a not-so-regular writer of my own blog, Sega MikeyDrive, which showcases my love of retro games and my retro gaming collection. For the last few months I have been writing short news reports as well as reviews for a Sega-orientated fan site, Sega-Addicts, which I thoroughly enjoy. My goal is to spread my name about and ultimately secure some sort of paid position where I can write all day every day.
Emma is really proud of the following she had accumulated on her main blog, EveningEmma. She appreciates every view and every comment made on her work, and is so very happy whenever she gets a new follower. Saying this, she has a lot of interests other than hand-crafts that she would like to share with her followers, hence Kung Pow Pixel. I agreed to help her make sure that this blog has regular posts and that is what I hope to do and I cherish the opportunity to report the more quirky bits of gaming news that appear on the web as opposed to the somewhat doom-and-gloom Sega news I report on at Sega-Addicts.
I hope you enjoy what I have to offer, and hope to read your comments and feedback in the usual place, the comments below. Cheers.
