If you check out http://club.nintendo.com/, and have some points to spare, you can download The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask to the Wii! I'm sure some of you guys must know this by now, but, just saying. As a result of this awesome promo, I have of course downloaded MM to the Wii, for old time's sake XD
Just a warning, though. You do have to either own one of those "Classic Controller" Wii remote thingamajigs, or find an old Gamecube remote and plug it into the Wii, which is what I did. That remote works until this very day. My dad was very impressed by that (he said something along the lines of "Dang, that remote is a trooper!"). But if you have 150 points to spare, please please download this amazing game.
I never could complete it as a child (I was too scared... LOL). So I'm going to try to play it through at least once - you know, as a personal milestone.
The thing that cracked me up the most was that I kept warning my two sisters (ten and eight-year-olds) that this game was kind of weird and scary. Guys, they didn't even FLINCH at the moon. What's wrong with kids these days?! LOL.
There came a moment where I said, "Watch out girls, this is kind of disturbing. You should look away". But they were all heroic and said "Oh whatever we want to see". I was talking about the putting-on-a-mask sequence, when Link puts on the Deku mask after going back to his original form, and the Deku mask's eyes turn blood red and Link screams in agony. You wanna know what my sisters said!?
"You consider that scary?" the ten-year-old blurted out, genuinely confused.
"Yeah", the eight-year-old chimed in, "What's wrong? Link is just putting on a mask."
OK SERIOUSLY! WHAT IS WRONG WITH CHILDREN THESE DAYS?! I am a grown adult and still press A desperately trying to skip the putting-on-a-mask sequence. My sisters weren't even PRETENDING not to be scared, they just gazed blankly at the TV like nothing's wrong!! Argh!!!
Not even the Happy Mask Salesman got to them. They just laughed at the organ appearing out of nowhere, but that's about it. The HMS made them laugh. I cannot believe it. I guess now as an adult I find him considerably less creepy and more amusing, but still...
These girls really got some nerve, dang!
