Fortunately, streaming an emulator is ridiculously easy. Almost no hoops to jump through.

This game really giveth and taketh away. I got the Pegasus Boots and Blue Mail right away, but then later paid 500 rupees to the Zora King to get 10 arrows in return.

My favorite thing that has happened so far is the merchant that usually sells a bottle. I gave her 100 rupees...and got 100 rupees in return.

I'll probably try this out this weekend. Might invest in a USB controller while I'm at it, since playing a ROM with a keyboard is annoying.

My first run was a bust, ended up at a later dead-end when the last place I could get anywhere in was Misery Mire, but eventually didn't pick up any relevant items. Turns out the hammer, bow and hookshot are really bloody important to the game's progression.

So I started another, naturally, and I've only been in 2 dungeons so far but I have around 80-90% of the items? Talk about a flip.

Playing the game this way has made stuff like the cape and the canes much more relevant. Also, now murdering everything with the hammer.

^Is it possible to dead-end? I thought they avoided that in the programming.

Yeah, definitely happened to me. Didn't have the fire rod, bombos, ether, hammer, bow or hookshot and as such I could not get anywhere else. Made it far in numerous dungeons, but most have some point sooner or later where a certain item is mandatory. Somehow I got all the bottles and just like every bomb chest/rupee/heart piece chest ever near the start of the game. I know where every chest, etc, is so there's really no way I'd missed anything I could get.

Off the top of my head, can't beat/get into the latter half of skull woods without the fire rod, can't get to the end of misery mire without the cane of somaria, can't do the first dungeon's end or the dark palace without the arrows, can't get to turtle rock without the hammer, can't enter the ice dungeon without the fire rod/bombos, can't get to the east side of death mountain without the hammer/hookshot. All the chests I need are behind the those barriers/later somehow.

Pretty comical when I said my prayers to the gods at the tablets after finally getting the book of mudora, only to have 10 arrows fall from the sky like

Eh, I guess I could. I already started a new run, though, so I'll stick with that one.

Killed the Moldorm boss with the hammer. Never thought I'd get to do that!

I haven't had much of a chance to play lately but I was wondering if what you get from the tablets would be random as well. That's hilarious.

Roms which are doing the time. Roms which kill. Roms that didn't do their homework and just don't care.

Second run has hit a bug, the game keeps forgetting which pendents I've gotten, so I can't get the master sword. It's not really necessary but just thought I'd post since it will probably show up if anyone else is playing - makes the pendants irrelevant.

AI, you can go back to the boss room and get the pendant again if that happens.
