Now that I'm home from Saturday gaming, and up too late...
Time to watch you finish this game, because I'm all about the climax of this game.
Beat The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past again. It's been twenty years, but I pretty much remembered where all the heart pieces were. The dungeons were half memories, and replaying them was a fascinating experience.
I might toy around with some randomizer seeds but not with speedrunning in mind.
These randomizer seeds are not the usual ones I've seen speedruns of! Locations are randomized as well, and it's a very odd experience.
One hour in, I finally found a sword.
You are playing open mode where you do not start with sword, also the options and changes what gets randomized for your taste.
The question is whether I keep going or find (create?) some seeds more like the randomizer speedruns I watched for the last month. I feel more prepared for the latter.
I beat ER Open Ganon Simple Normal Restrictive 221166048 but not in anything close to record time! The “open” style with randomized locations takes a lot of getting used to. I recommend you take notes, because I didn't and there was a lot of backtracking.
Next I'm playing a more-like-the-speedruns-I've-seen ALttP randomizer with just the items scrambled, and it's absolutely fantastic!
Tonight I’m going to stream a whole bunch of games for many hours. Probably starting around 4PM Eastern-ish.
