Introduction


Yep, the original, and also my favorite Zelda. I tend to have a thing for originals.

Of course, if I really wanted to play the original, I'd be playing this little guy here:

Released for the Famicon Disk System. Don't play it. Yes, it could save back before batteries were in cartridges, but load times are terrible and after the start screen it has to be taken out and flipped over to side B. It sucks.

So instead we're playing the cartridge version.

Anyone who saw my Megaman thread knows that I can't survive without level conditions, so whoever is guest commentating gets to give me a condition. If you want to commentate, give a death count guess for the next video, and whoever gets it gets to give a condition or guest or both. Can be anything from doing things out of sequence, only swinging the sword while facing right, or telling me where to go and lead me in an endless circle. I am at your mercy.

So, without further ado,
