Branches, bushes and trees flew by on the amazingly stable video display. The man’s labored breath was exceptionally clear. He appeared to be quite young, perhaps thirty, but had a look in his eyes, the eyes of an old man. A wise old man. He had several scratches on his face, mostly from running through the heavy brush. He ducked behind a tree, concealing his breathing as much as possible. No more than fifty feet away, atop a horse so black it appeared to be a void in the already dim light, dressed in black trousers and a bright red shirt and cape was his nemesis, Bergamiser — or Bignose as he liked to call him, because of his huge...
Michael yawned, as water slipped from his eyes, and his hands sporadically twitched over the keyboard in a jerky dance. Michael typed, looking far away, then closed his eyes for three seconds. His upper lip lifted over his coffee stained teeth as he looked her in the eyes and nodded. “Anyway, she – the landlord – says she didn’t know. We’re looking to sue her. We’re looking to sue the company. “And that’s why you came to me,” Michael surmised in a sing song tone. The young lady looked behind her. Then she looked back at Michael, and for a moment he wondered if she was going to attempt to spin his laptop around.

The first Legend of Zelda blog for ATSG: A Link to the Past. Arguably the most popular Zelda game to date. ALttP was released in 1992 (North America) for the SNES and remains the most critically acclaimed Legend of Zelda to date. A fan favorite, the game won my poll for first game of 2015. I haven't got much for you in the way of graphics for this title, because - let's face it - sprites are timeless and retro games have no business being held to today's standards. In the sound department, the sound effects are particularly charming. The stairs sound, by the way, is incredibly unique in that there is a slightly different sound for ascending and descending. You'll also hear many of the now classic Zelda effects throughout the whole game, including "acquire an item" and the iconic "uncover a secret. " There is also an alarm effect for when you are short on health, which gets annoying real fast, but is effective nevertheless. My personal favorite sound out of this game is heard when transitioning between the Light and Dark worlds. The plot for ALttP is rather predictable, especially for Zelda fans, but classic: our man in green has a strange dream in which he.
