Ocarina of Time video: Deku Tree FAP

Shares
 

It begins. I’m going to play (and record) every dungeon in Ocarina of Time while a rotating cast of GR editors stops by to ridicule my aging reflexes. As with all our FAPs, don’t expect the topic to stay focused on Zelda – we’ll try, but when we all get in a room it’s hard to concentrate on the task at hand.

First up is the Deku Tree dungeon, which is accessed within the first 10 minutes of this legendary quest. It’s a fairly straightforward dungeon meant to ease you into the concept of a 3D Zelda game. It does so beautifully, offering just enough simple puzzles to prepare you for far more elaborate sections later in the game. That said, I’ll probably bitch to high heaven about the Z-targeting or odd camera issues. And by “probably” I mean “already did.”

Fun fact: The boss, Gohma, first appeared as the boss of the sixth dungeon in the original Legend of Zelda.

Next up: Dodongo’s Cavern!

    I was never into Zelda in the SNES days, but I had heard great things about Ocarina when it first came out. I rented it, and after playing this dungeon, I immediately went out and bought it. Because it was a cartridge, I had to replay this part, but I didn't care at all. Looking forward to the 3DS version, even though I don't have a 3DS yet...

    I can't wait to bomb some Dodongos!

    That... still looks pretty bad. Did they do nothing to uprez it?

    Playing the gamecube port? It was always awkward and never felt exactly right. Still ... come on Brelston ... gotta jump attack more.
  • GrandHarrier - May 24, 2011 5:42 p.m.

    Or, maybe I should have paid attention and saw it was the original. My bad. o.O

    Oh awesome!

    That was a great run-through of the first dungeon. Can't wait for the 3DS version!!

    @MattofSteel Yeah, it's way easier to record GC than N64 for us, and the GC version will come out nicer in the end. As for jump attacking, yeah, I kinda forgot about that here. Haven't played since 1998! I think by the next vid I've remembered a few basic things and play a bit better. And then some later dungeons... hoo boy. Not so good.

    great fap, looking forward to the other dungeons

    Even more fun fact about Gohma: She was also the boss of the fourth dungeon in Oracle of Seasons, I believe. Also, she looks like a crab in that one. She's been in other ones, but OoS is probably her wierdest appearance.

    Are you going to do the Master Quest dungeons too? I'd like to see how ridiculously hard it is.
  • jasoncarter - May 24, 2011 6:29 p.m.

    Ah the good old days......
  • AlmightyFuzz - May 24, 2011 6:42 p.m.

    You do realise you can set the z-targeting to toggle right? So you don't have to keep holding down the button?
  • IveGotTheGlow - May 24, 2011 6:55 p.m.

    Pretty cool Fap, guys! I remember playing this during 98 Thanksgiving break as well. I think Princess Diana died sometime around then as well. I remember thinking "Who is Princess Diana?" and then continued to play OoT. Good times!!
  • IveGotTheGlow - May 24, 2011 6:56 p.m.

    Not the Diana dying, but the OoT....
  • IveGotTheGlow - May 24, 2011 6:59 p.m.

    Actually, I was playing Soul Edge for PS1 when she passed. I was playing OoT the next year! *shrug* I guess I am getting old!

    Go on GR, let me do the Water Temple. I can school hat bastard like it ain't not thang. And yes, I did just type "thang", and I meant it completely unironically too...
  • smashpro1 - May 24, 2011 7:24 p.m.

    Yeah, that egg had better run!
  • IntimidatingStair - May 24, 2011 7:48 p.m.

    Can't wait for the next dungeon, awesome video.
  • WillisTron - May 24, 2011 7:51 p.m.

    I watched just a little bit to humor myself and just see a game that I haven't seen in ages, but ended up watching the whole thing - you guys are pretty hilarious! Looking forward to see how you deal with Jabu's belly, that temple always annoyed me a little for some reason. "I was 18, I barley knew how to read" - lolzz
