Route TSG Episode 1: The Legend of Zelda

Route TSG is video/commentary of the routes we took in our games during the marathons. In Episode 1 Britt plays through the Legend of Zelda (NES).  Note that on level one if you enter and exit the dungeon, the first room will magically become unlocked.  Not sure why I forgot this during my run.  Also, I’m not sure why my audio came out the way it did, I’ll that also.

  1. If this were Facebook, I’d be clicking the “I like this”-button like crazy. 🙂

    Beware, though, that Vimeo hates video games. Or at least video game footage. So the videos might get deleted if and when they feel like doing so.

  2. Best thing ever! I can’t wait to see more! 🙂 It’s neat to actually hear the player talk as they play. Maybe set up a leisurely play time like this with the chat? I’m sure a bunch of people would come and like to just have fun and hang out with you while you play.

  3. Question: When leaving Castle 5, why do you go all the way around to get to Castle 6? Here is a quick little path I drew to show the way I normally go. If you were going that way to get rupees and such, it makes sense, but just to get to Level 6, the sword, and the bracelet; it seems like you are going the long way.

  4. Many lols were had. Also: I never shouted fail at you during the MM marathon; not all of us were Storm Eagles. Some of us were Chill Penguins until you rode the lava to victory (best story I have about you guys at the moment, actually).
    Also also wik: Best 24+ hours of awake time evar. And I’m totally dressing up as Ravegar for Halloween. No questions asked and not a doubt in my mind.

    So, yeah. I’m a bit of a nerd, but if you ever need any random information on games that have been speedran, I’ve seen about 400 of the ones over at SDA.
    I wish I was kidding. I think I’m addicted. v-v
    Again, if you need anything give me a ring.
    Or, like, an email. That makes more sense.

    If you think it’s a bit of a hassle to keep commentating while you’re playing and solo, try doing a duo commentary. Maybe one person keeps the other on track, maybe they start meme-ing it up. Who knows?
    This is usually how I prefer to play games anyway; it’s difficult to keep interested when someone isn’t there to heckle you through. 😛

    I’ma have to stalk you guys sometime. I get some vacation time during the winter…

  5. iHeart_Absol has a point.

    Britt,this was perfect I loved but I mean it.

    I watched it while i was eating my ramen and it was very entertaining.

    really looking foward to the next episodes.

  6. I have to say I thought this was pretty awesome as well. Except that I think the likalikes or whatever they’re called look way more like Pancakes than bread.

  7. I didn’t think I’d watch the whole thing, but the random talking and hilarious run through kept me entertained. Before I knew it, I has finished the 3rd part and was checking for more

  8. This is amazing. Now I am playing my “The legend of Zelda” but on the nes. And now I know how to finally beat it! Very entertaining, can’t wait for more.

  9. Great joRb homestar! *has said that every comment*
    Go speed gamers, go speed gamers, go speed gamers gooooo! *says that a lot too*
    Britt loves gargoyles. “Thank you for giving my heart back gargoyle.” (I <3 the old Gargoyles series. Then the writers changed on the last season and it kinda got messed up a bit and died)
    It's good though. It's about as entertaining as watching a movie of the same length that hollywood took 3 years and $32095834905834905 to make (or screw up). Of course, I'd rather watch this so I guess that means it's better? Britt screws up for FREE 😛 (j/p, you did well and it's fun to watch pros go through a game you've played like this)

  10. Finally got around to watching it. I liked it a lot~! I haven’t beaten The Legend of Zelda so a lot of it was helpful. I really should go back and try to finish it…

  11. This was fun to watch. I especially liked how you didn’t edit out the areas when you died or missed something and had to go back.

    All in all, very good debut and I look forward to future entries.

  12. Personally I like it when LPers talk about their real life because it interests me… then when people say ‘okay back to the game’ I say to myself ‘Aww…’
    But anyways great job Britt
