Ocarina of Time video: Shadow Temple FAP

After trudging through the Water Temple a week or so ago, we're finally ready to hop back into Hyrule and tackle the Shadow Temple, the dankest, dingiest and all around creepiest dungeon in the game. Once again I'm playing (and responding to these scandalous allegations that I'm not a very good Zelda player) and this time Henry and Charlie join in on the fun and attempt to stay on topic.

All in all, the Shadow Temple is much easer and more straightforward than the Water Temple that preceded it. The only trouble I have is with a certain jump half way through... which I have to repeat about five times. Oh and the giant Skulltulas keep falling from the ceiling and smacking me in the face.

Next up: the Spirit Temple, which stars both child AND adult Link!

The longest, most frustrated FAP to this day. And probably ever

    Man, this was painful to watch. I understand it has been a bit of time but I assumed halfway through the game you would find a groove. Someone already said it, but yeah, hookshot those Skulltulas for an instant death. Wearing your hover boots during the Bongo Bongo fight greatly reduces the bounciness. Not that it matters now, and it has been a long time since you stopped caring. But someday, there will be ANOTHER re-release of Ocarina and you'll probably have to play through it again.

    I was such a pussy back then that I had my friend go through this dungeon for me, since it creeped me the hell out. Since then I never actually went through this. Can't wait to make it right when the 3DS version arrives at my home in a couple of weeks! I really enjoy these FAP, it's funny watching you cursing the crap out of the game. It kind of ruins the magic of it, but as you said yourself, this is not the same as playing it in 1998. Overall I think the Hyrule depicted in this game was the best one, even though the Twilight Princess version was full of details, it always felt too empty and gloomy. Kind of the whole point, but I prefer Ocarina's Hyrule nevertheless.

    Hey Brett, here's a pro tip: You don't have to wait for Skulltulas to turn around if you shoot them with the hookshot. Kills them instantly.

    Another fun FAP, Brett! Can't wait for the double-dip that is the Spirit Temple.

    Love these faps glad there back.

    @firas333 I think maybe the Wii controls are probably just wonky. The targeting didn't seem this bad on the N64 or Gamecube versions. @Brett You misspelled the word "easier" in that paragraph.

    Really liking this trio of Brett, Charlie and Henry. I think I would wanna see Charlie do a Gabriel Knight FAP

    So someday some Bret 2.0 will be FAPping something like Uncharted and doing the elegant dance of nostalgic frustration.

    "It's just unlock lock unlock lock lock unlock unlock... ARRRRGHHHHH!" Beautiful

    Great to see these back, just got my copy for 3DS in the mail today so I'm going to try catch up to the FAPs
  • firas333 - June 16, 2011 12:35 p.m.

    The z-targeting from OoT was supposed to be revolutionary, but as seen here... totally sucks. Otherwise great game imo
  • TheLeastImportantDudeEVER - June 16, 2011 11:05 a.m.

    Yea, this temple is the reason i couldn't beat ocarina as a kid. It looks like the reason i couldn't beat it was because of that room with the random "Uh, bomb this dirt pile in the corner" "why?" "cuz."
  • humpiedumpie - June 16, 2011 9:06 a.m.

    Great FAP :) Can't wait for the next one! What is the next game you are FAPPING Brett? (MAJORA!? PLEASE!?)
  • Bobbety - June 16, 2011 7:38 a.m.

    Awww Brett, you suck so much at Zelda games! /sarcasm I couldn't judge, really, having never even played Ocarina.
  • glasspantsss - June 16, 2011 7 a.m.

    Wait a minute...I'm invited to watch STAR TREK 6!?!? AWESOME!
  • DualWieldingIsNotFeasible - June 16, 2011 6:26 a.m.

    Ah, finally. It had been far too long since I got to listen to Brett become enraged by the thing he loves most.
  • RODTheMaster - June 16, 2011 5:27 a.m.

    Dead Hands gave me nightmares every night when I was a kid. I was convinced that one lived in my parents' closet.
  • lilspooky - June 16, 2011 4:07 a.m.

    YES! Is Wind Waker next?
  • OneToBoner - June 16, 2011 3:40 a.m.

    Another great FAP. As much as I'm looking forward to the OoT on 3DS, I really can't wait for Skyward Sword. My favorite Zelda games are the ones that take a chance and leave Hyrule, like Majora's (my favorite game) and Link's Awakening.
  • xombiesarelove - June 16, 2011 2:14 a.m.

    Awesome! I was wondering when these would come back.
