Hi, friends! My name is Fae and according to my friends I’ve never played a videogame before.
Well, that’s not completely true but there are a lot of classic and well loved games that I’ve never touched or even know anything about! Last year I knocked one of these games off my list by finally beating Ocarina of Time for the first time, aided by my good friend and Designated Navi ChaosArgate, a whole host of friends and guests and my own wits!
Majora’s Mask was on my list pretty much the moment I beat OoT and a lot of people have been very excited to see me play it! Released for the N64 in 2000 (April 27 in Japan, North American on October 26th and Europe on November 17th) and remastered for the 3DS early last year, its certainly one of the more divisive Zelda games! Opinions tend to range from people considering it the best Zelda game to thinking its the worst, and in my experience there’s not a lot in between. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
I know very little about this game and have never played it or watched it being played. I know literally three things about the game going in, and they’re very obvious things like “there are masks” and “its built on the OoT engine”. I’m going in with no foreknowledge or preparation whatsoever and everything you see in these videos is something I’m seeing for the first time! But its not all bad! As usual I’m dragging Navi aka ChaosArgate with me, and I’m also joined by a new permanent co-commentator Tatl aka Artix, who has assured me that he knows this game like the back of his hand. Along with you guys here in the thread, the two of them will be helping me bumble my way through Clock Town and beyond as I make new friends, smash my face into new enemies and die in stupid ways that are 85% of the time, my own damn fault. So let’s get started shall we?
This is a blind LP, so the spoiler policy is very strict. If it hasn’t appeared in a video, do not talk about it. Not even in tags. No nudge-nudge-wink-wink stuff, no “I can’t wait until you get to the giant bunny fight!”. I am playing this with no foreknowledge and some are watching it in the same position, it’d be a shame to ruin that, no?
A note on the first session: A couple of things went wrong. First of all I accidentally fucked up my audio recording a little bit so my video ended up having the audio from my two co-commentators baked into it. Their audio isn’t as good as it should be and ChaosArgate’s smoke detector is beeping periodically in the background. Secondly, Majora’s Mask doesn’t emulate well without some fiddling. There are a few audio issues with the game itself (a little bit of skipping and slowdowns, etc) and the cool transition that’s supposed to play as the day is ending doesn’t play. That’s the nature of blind LPs I suppose, I couldn’t exactly load the game up to make sure things worked perfectly before I started! The good news is that we fix it after episode 4 thanks to my buddy FPzero who helped me get everything working correctly!
