Let's Play the Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX


http://i.imgur.com/xGV6kHn.png

Inspired by the rest of the let's play posts in here, I've decided to toss my hat into the mix and run one based on my first Zelda game, Link's Awakening DX. This is the game boy colour version of the Link's Awakening. Remade with more content and shiny visuals compared to the original version. Without further ado, let's begin.




http://i.imgur.com/0P98dto.png
The Story Starts out with a small cinematic of a ship on the ocean, Who could be riding on this vessel during such a storm?

http://i.imgur.com/ycIERG0.png
Oh, It's just link.

http://i.imgur.com/NJZG9ae.png
Hey Buddy, you doing okay? You look a bit pale.

http://i.imgur.com/LEwvj02.png
Oooohh….

http://i.imgur.com/Iq5OpYH.png
Cut to the beachfront, and we see a young woman walking down the beach. She stops and starts running to the right.

http://i.imgur.com/2pcztW1.png http://i.imgur.com/OAVnlRe.png
Gaspu~ It's Link. He survived the storm and washed up on land. How lucky he Is to have a young lady find him, eh?

So we're starting the game now. As per Zelda rules, you cannot name your character anything remotely normal for Immaturity reasons

http://i.imgur.com/68yfmUM.png
I think "Fartz" should do. So we begin the story of Fartz .

http://i.imgur.com/sQXXUuq.png
So we wake up, tossing and turning in a bed. The girl from before is watching us sleep. Fartz Wakes up and Is greeted by the sexy lady from the opening cinematic.

http://i.imgur.com/8P6KimT.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/8QF4wLf.png

Good to know this isn't Zelda. I don't think any of us were thinking that though. Marin tells you that you were shipwrecked and that you're on Koholint Island. That's all the story you get, so let's get to it!

http://i.imgur.com/5W3MYB7.png
Fartz sure has some energy to jump out of bed like that, especially after a shipwreck. First thing in the morning I just fall out of bed.

http://i.imgur.com/rZyjRMB.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/DaESn3t.png
So did I sleep in Marin's Bed… Or Tarin's Bed… Very important to know what bed Fartz has been in

http://i.imgur.com/8cGZV95.png http://i.imgur.com/4yDMLwT.png
http://i.imgur.com/6zPVl27.png
So that's how he knew my name. I was worried he might be a crazy stalker.

http://i.imgur.com/9OK16Go.png http://i.imgur.com/ItTOy6Z.png
Seems this crazy stalker is giving me back my shield. First a stalker, now a THIEF. What next Tarin?

http://i.imgur.com/pTo3n5I.png
Reclaiming his shield and keeping a watchful eye on Tarin, Fartz leaves the building. The only lead we have just now is to check out the beach where we washed up. Some of Fartz belonging's may be washed up there. So let's head there first

http://i.imgur.com/yodmdSO.png
Quickly running past the most dangerous enemy in the game, we follow the path.

http://i.imgur.com/q4kN2U7.png
Quickly running past the big black blob and cats

http://i.imgur.com/wBm0VCS.png
And into some kids playing ball. I decide to wait until they throw it so I can get out their way.

http://i.imgur.com/qLSBaeA.png
HOLY CRAP IT'S A GIANT SQUID ON LAND! RUN AWAY. Just when I ink I lost him, there are more at the beach. Along with spikes.

http://i.imgur.com/fAHHvnS.png
I hate when spikes poke out the ground at the beach. There are wooden planks around, so my hunch about ship wreckage washing up was right.

http://i.imgur.com/nQw7cig.png
This spiky guy is in the way here, but at least he's not poking out the ground. I'll just move him out the way so that people can walk on the beach

http://i.imgur.com/xrwcJTL.png
There that should do. Nice and out the way of harm. I've called him Spiky. He's my new best friend on Koholint. Better than Tarin at least

http://i.imgur.com/y3tlG7D.png
NO SPIKY! THAT OWL IS COMING TO EAT YOU! RUN AWAY!

http://i.imgur.com/cWlbnuo.png
NO SPIKY! THAT OWL TALKS! WE'LL BE HERE ALL DAY! RUN AWAY!

http://i.imgur.com/67wrxgg.png
Blah blah plot

http://i.imgur.com/PikiD4e.png
Blah, blah, trapped here forever

http://i.imgur.com/UmNvfES.png
Salmon with Flatulence, got it.

http://i.imgur.com/Fz5xjTh.png http://i.imgur.com/JGzU5Rk.png
Listen here M8. I would go north, but me and Spiky are kind of trapped by text boxes here.

http://i.imgur.com/aKCUpcU.png
So the owl finally leaves and I pick up the sword that was lying on the beach.

http://i.imgur.com/4ErHM1o.png
Fartz is all over the blade. Wonder if that was intentional. Just to test out the sword, Link takes a swing himself

http://i.imgur.com/NIf5sIV.png
SPIKY!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

http://i.imgur.com/kuv3XE6.png
Don't hold that sword aloft with pride. You just murdered Spiky. Your best friend on the island. RIP Spiky

http://i.imgur.com/0ZMvB6Z.png
Murdering Spiky's family now. What is wrong with you, Fartz?

http://i.imgur.com/8TIny5K.png
So after Sea Urchin genocide, we stumble across a house on the beach

http://i.imgur.com/77z71KO.png
Um… here are my questions

1. Why does that Alligator have a beret?
2. Why is that bed submerged in water?
3. Why are there stacks of Banana's in the corner?

Against all better judgement, Fartz decides to talk to l'alligator.

http://i.imgur.com/i3NFpDt.png http://i.imgur.com/j6iWbnX.png
That's an unusual hobby there. Collecting canned foods. Why don't I see any here though… You must be terrible at your hobby.

http://i.imgur.com/IDhZXZy.png http://i.imgur.com/rCSpAFE.png
That or you're just weird. Fartz quickly runs out the door and heads back to town.

http://i.imgur.com/9KSKwFW.png
Sea urchins beware of Link. Or they would if he didn't just kill them all. Next to the signpost is an acorn looking thing

http://i.imgur.com/U4V0tYO.png
Yep, acorn looking thing. This is a Guardian Acorn. Cuts damage by half. Is normally a life saver. Also give a killer tune when played

http://i.imgur.com/nvQJ8cn.png
This looks like a nice date spot, minus all the spikes. Wonder if I can take a lady here someday…

http://i.imgur.com/UU9SsHb.png
You started me at the beginning, but now I've got a sword! Who needs courage when you've got a sword?! *Schwing*. Before heading back to town, Fartz has a has a look around the area.

http://i.imgur.com/ytlCKuA.png
You've got to be squidding me… A family of squids. I walked into their nest with the blood of first squid still fresh on Fartz sword. I'm sure they're mad

http://i.imgur.com/RWd10Nf.png
This place looks promising. I can probably hide here to escape the horde of Squids I just engaged by killing their friends. Let's check it out.

http://i.imgur.com/ApyFcXg.png
Hmm.. Guess I need to find the "Tale Keyhole". I get it, because this is the start of my story! Fartz will need to face the upcoming squid horde and make it back to town to find more clues on how to open this gate. There might be sweet loot inside.



Will Fartz Survive the horde of Squids? Will we ever see Spiky again? What's the deal with the owl? Will Tarin continue to be a massive weirdo?

None of these questions and more will be answered in the next instalment of Lets Play Link's Awakening DX!

Great choice for a Let's Play! I loved this game. Good stuff, but...

... it wouldn't be a Dat_Matt Production w/o a few factual errors & me dickishly pointing them out. :p

1. the "black blob" is a Chain Chomp from the Mario series.
2. those are dogs, not cats.
3. The Alligator's hat has a brim, so it can't be a beret.

Aside from chain chomp though, I didn't know the rest. Not changing it though xD

Epic foreshadowing.

Tarin's first sentence, Fartz snaps. Will sum up my feelings during this gameplay.

I'll probably work on a new segment tomorrow. I just need to write some witty banter to keep ya'll entertained.

I initially wanted to call him "Thunder Butt" however that didn't first in the 5 character name field. Fartz was a close second.

Been like 4 weeks since my last update! I am good at producing content eh?

So on the last instalment, we got our sword found a freaky alligator, made it to the Tale Cave and were about to Fight a legion of Squids to make it back to town alive. I can tell you now that the fight against the endless horde of enemies went successfully and you did not have to witness the 40 hours long battle it was something like this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKkreGu9jAM). Anyway, back to Kohalint.

http://i.imgur.com/iWnZKQF.png

Passing the kids playing ball on the way home, Fartz decide to investigate. Checking out the first open door he sees.

http://i.imgur.com/NzrntQ5.png

What is this place, it's filled with books. I bet only nerds come here

http://i.imgur.com/CzNXax0.png

Hold the phone. This sound interesting. I wonder what Dark Secrets and Mysteries Kohalint holds.

http://i.imgur.com/brwax5L.png

YES I want to read this sodding book.

http://i.imgur.com/RUcGX6V.png
http://i.imgur.com/WF5Viei.png

¬_¬

Last time I trust nerd buidlings. That's it, I'm out. I'm going to find the highest ledge and jump. Screw getting off this island

http://i.imgur.com/Sbmxfd4.png

That'll do

http://i.imgur.com/LnGGcda.png

Fartz regrets everything, and sinks away into the darkness
Thanks for tuning in. It's been a good run














http://i.imgur.com/OCfmhHH.png

Oh, it’s a well. With stairs out. I guess Fartz lives another day.

http://i.imgur.com/e4mqQRs.png

I suppose this suicide attempt had a plus side. I found a piece of my broken heart. Fartz walks into town. I find Marin.

http://i.imgur.com/6aHfdor.png
http://i.imgur.com/9PMZ5Wk.png

First thing you're talking about is your dad, and he's find Shrooms in the woods. I knew this guy was shady.

http://i.imgur.com/bIzRyhy.png
http://i.imgur.com/k1Fdrwu.png

Singing is slightly better I suppose. She sings "Ballad of the Wind Fish" which appears often. I decide to visit the local shop

http://i.imgur.com/jiDextz.png

Drat. Foiled again. You can steal from this store, but I don't want to. Everyone calls you THIEF if you do. Fartz ain't no thief. Fartz goes for a wander around town and stumbles into a family home.

http://i.imgur.com/XfZl7lm.png
http://i.imgur.com/tY7GTlC.png

She is the mother of all the boys around the Village. I think there are four. It's a lot of boys.

http://i.imgur.com/5gqff6y.png

I bet baby wants my Yoshi Doll, Dirty Girl.

http://i.imgur.com/mC7DJ4a.png

Oh, Might be that. This place is called the trendy game. I also call it the bank, because I know how to win every game.

http://i.imgur.com/aUo5gSF.png
http://i.imgur.com/6u7cuaC.png
http://i.imgur.com/UPTgSGQ.png

See. You just move the crane over to the first pillar, and when the top of the item reaches the top of the up arrows on the second pillar where it turns left. Move it down to the point where the arrows point left and you'll catch the item every time.

http://i.imgur.com/9JD5SsS.png
http://i.imgur.com/AuaGB5U.png

Fartz also picks up the Yoshi Doll. For baby of course. I cleaned this guy out of 60 Rupees, Magic Powder and the Yoshi Doll, all while spending 40 rupees. 20 Rupees profit! I jump outside and explore more of the town

http://i.imgur.com/RcbEOW4.png

Umm.. What is this place? Is that a dumbell on the roof?

http://i.imgur.com/a4BL5oI.png

Is that a.. phone? What is this contraption. It doesn't have a touch screen, or even a number pad. Stupid dead technology. Jokes aside, this place is designed to offer direction and advice in the game. Guy called Ulrira answers the phones and offers advice

http://i.imgur.com/2SICiAV.png
http://i.imgur.com/uDVYVyD.png

Don't make me think about that place. You monster.

http://i.imgur.com/85u6Mfe.png

Goodness. The Ball wasn't a ball after all. It was a monster all along, Teeth and everything. I'm going to complain to the owner for keeping such a vicious beast

http://i.imgur.com/aKwxkMO.png

YIP. It's a baby monster. There is no reasoning with this woman. Best scout the house, she might have more dark secrets

http://i.imgur.com/5Fgry1l.png
http://i.imgur.com/PmVKqOP.png

She has 3rd dog. This one talks. What sort of mutant are you? She wants Accessories? Is that to brighten up the place considering that there are animal bones on the floor. This place is dark…

http://i.imgur.com/uaE6e4s.png

I decide to pop over and trade in the Yoshi Doll. Give baby the doll This starts the trading Minigame.

http://i.imgur.com/uWQjQv2.png
http://i.imgur.com/gnLRAdE.png

She has only boys, but the item she fives is a ribbon. Maybe she always wanted a girl. I feel sorry for her.

http://i.imgur.com/L64dEWs.png

Anyways. that's me done messing around in town for now. Time to head to the mysterious forest, like the owl told me to.

http://i.imgur.com/Ti3y2hA.png

Thanks. That was helpful. Stupid Sign.

http://i.imgur.com/MB797sG.png

Will you just leave me alone?

http://i.imgur.com/3H2QamQ.png

I'm just here to look In a forest. What you on about?

http://i.imgur.com/YUKzEUD.png

I've heard it's Mysterious

http://i.imgur.com/ndnZpLi.png
http://i.imgur.com/M6Q2v0N.png

Don't you mean Tale Cave? Right?

http://i.imgur.com/WC8yeII.png

Is he creepy as Tarin? Speaking of which he should be in forest. Lets keep an eye out for him.

http://i.imgur.com/NFViefN.png

Finding some Moblins in the Woods. Best Murder them.

http://i.imgur.com/2PTZPEk.png

Is that part of the Triforce?

http://i.imgur.com/XyxW8JS.png

It is. It's the Piece of Power, Yo. An item that double attack power for a period. It's rad. Makes killing everything I encounter easier!

http://i.imgur.com/qB561Wk.png

Like this guy! Turns out I can't kill him, so I just ignore him and move on.

http://i.imgur.com/jUNLfoW.png

Thanks for revealing your weakness! Dusts and powder eh? Have I got anything like that? Maybe I'll try that stuff from the trendy game

http://i.imgur.com/OoRIchE.png

Take that nerd.

http://i.imgur.com/TtVr4Zn.png

Ummm…

http://i.imgur.com/hSNgI68.png

What are you doing?

http://i.imgur.com/mqZ8HT8.png

Please stop your nonsense

http://i.imgur.com/4eNIcKy.png

HOLY CRAP! I'M SO SORRY RACCOON I DIDN'T KNOW POWDER MAKES YOU EXPLODE!

http://i.imgur.com/9B9brLn.png

Oh. It's only Tain. Maybe it's a side effect of the mushrooms he was taking. Maybe I was taking some too… Heading north where before I would get lost

http://i.imgur.com/s94RT1i.png

You mean the Tale Key… Right? I'm starting to get confused. Is this key for the same place?

http://i.imgur.com/pUwXOQ3.png
http://i.imgur.com/dDNGFUS.png

You're back again. I told you to leave me alone.

http://i.imgur.com/bn4F35H.png

Wait. I'm going into a scary looking cave to get an instrument? Sounds like a dumb thing to
potentially be risking your life for. Stupid ass owl

http://i.imgur.com/Wn1zPz1.png

I'm just exploding the place up today. This is the effect of the Piece of power. Maybe that's why the racoon exploded when I used the powder.

http://i.imgur.com/Z989b3Z.png

Squid horde fight #2. This tim I have a 'splodey sword. They don't stand a chance

http://i.imgur.com/AaWWXV1.png

They didn't stand a chance

http://i.imgur.com/faQECbr.png

So I'm here at the entrance to Tale Cave. With the Tail key. If this works then there the localisation team overlooked this

http://i.imgur.com/qv7YxvV.png

Crap. I better go in to this scary looking cave to go and get a dumb instrument or something stupid like that.

That's us for this instalment. Heading into the Tail Cave next time.

Maybe I'll consider not waiting a month to put up the next entry as well xD

A Zelda game I've sadly played far too little of.

Does the owl theme music from OoT plays in anyone else's head when the owl shows up here?

All this time of playing, and I didn't notice the "Tale/Tail" thing. As a guess I would say "Tail" is what it was supposed to be all the way, as you will soon see. :jess:

Sounds more like dungeon music. Or something you'd hear in a cave.
