I believeee I can flyyy


      

A very fun addition in God of War II would be that you can fly! As you crawl out of Hades, you come out right where you had just died, and see Pegasus just chillin’ out there. So, of course you decide to take him for a spin! The controls are inverse which can get annoying but otherwise, its fun. You have enemies that attack you as you try and avoid purple orbs that are flying at you.

Chapter 10: You Would Give me an Escort Quest


      

Really now, Bioshock? I’m literally within spitting distance of the end of this already stretched-out game and you’re going to saddle me with this? Not just an escort quest, quite literally one of the worst escort quests I’ve ever had the poor fortune to be forced to undergo. Let’s review the cardinal sins you’ve broken, Bioshock, in the hope that you might better yourself in the upcoming sequel.

1: Staggeringly slow-moving NPC

2: Staggeringly weak and defenseless NPC

3: Staggeringly unfair waves upon waves of enemies during the process

The Puppeteer


      

As you are in the process of defeating the Colossus of Rhodes, Zeus sends down to your aid the Blade of Olympus. He tells you to put in all your powers so that it may be strong enough to defeat the Colossus. You do this and easily it. You then realize how weak you now are with all of your powers having been put into the sword as Zeus comes down. You race him to the blade that now contains all your powers but you are too weak. With the Blade of Olympus, the blade that now contains all your powers, Zeus murders you.

Win.


      

After conquering the Shadow Temple I find myself back at the Temple of Time. I start to exit the temple but I’m stoped by Shiek, a mysterious character that has been keeping tabs on me throughout the game and he gives me instructions on what I should do throughout my quest. We talk, and then Shiek reviels that he is actually a she, and that she is none other than Princess Zelda. I am astonished, I don’t know what to say.

A Song about Love and Mario Kart


      

Although I love playing Mario Kart 64, it is just a tad bit frustrating that there is no way to win this game! It gets boring sometimes, but hey! I’m getting better at it :) and that’s all I can ask for. Too bad real racing and driving isn’t this bad ass. I mean, flying over gaps in mountains and driving in the snow, who wouldn’t want to do that in real life?

The Spirit Temple #2!!


      

I am now in good terms with the Gerudos and have permission to enter the Spirit Temple. The Gerudos say that their leader, Nabooru, has been captured by the twin sisters/wiches Twinrova, and taken to the Spirit Temple and is being brainwashed to serve under Ganondorf’s rule. The ladies of the Gerudo tribe asked me to go to the Spirit Temple and rescue Nabooru. I gladly accepted the responsibility of rescuing Nabooru, so I went through the gate that led to the desert and set off for the Spirit Temple.

At this point in the game the gamer, has two options: they could go to the Spirit Temple in the desert or to the Shadow Temple located at the back of the graveyard of Kokiriko Village.

The Water Temple


      

I am about half way through my journey of completing the temples and awakening the sleeping sages. I go back to Zora’s Domain for my companion, Navi the fairy, senses a “cold wintery chill” coming from Zora’s Domain. When I enter Zora’s Domain, I find it to be frozen solid, with no Zoras to be found except for one the Zora King who is frozen solid in a peculiar red ice. The path to the “sacred fish” Jabu-Jabu, which I had to enter before to get the sacred stone of the Zoras, was open and like the rest of the Zoras Lord Jabu-Jabu was gone. I had to find a way to defrost the king.
