Just picked up the new Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for Wii U. Haven't actually played it yet, and I'm not exactly in a rush since I've already played the original. In fact, this is the third version of the game I own. And I bought them all for different reasons, haha.
The original gamecube game I bought and played since it was new. I'm a huge Zelda fan, so it only makes sense. TP was pretty hyped up as well. I bought the Wii one (which actually came out earlier than the gamecube one, despite me picking it up later) so I could hack my Wii. IIRC it was the only way to do it at the time. I never bothered to beat that one, since it's essentially the same game, but has the content flipped, and added gimmicky motion controls. But nonetheless it's sitting on my shelf.
And now this new one. I wasn't actually planning on getting it. But it comes with an amiibo figure which will apparently be needed for the new Zelda Wii U game coming out later this year. And I was planning on replaying Twilight Princess soon anyway. The figure is pretty cool, no complaints there. And from what I've seen in screenshots and trailers, the game looks nice. Perhaps they've given it the MM treatment, where they make various improvements. I imagine they probably did something similar to how Wind Waker HD was, but I haven't had the chance to play that one yet.
I'm unsure of whether the game will work on my Wii U, which is partly why I'm hesitating to play it. See, I'm on FW 5.5.0, which isn't quite the latest. I accidentally updated it like a dumbass, and then all the cool hacking stuff came out for the one I had just updated from. And I feel like if I update it again, the same thing will happen! I feel like I'm gonna have to update the Wii U anyway when my brother and his girlfriend come to visit, since they'll probably want to play some other games. So perhaps I should just bite the bullet and update. After all, the IOSU exploit is possible on 5.5.1 as well. So maybe it won't be a big deal?
In Kaffiene related news, I've added a few more sites (like to the new ZeroWiki), and I've added a donate page, that lists my namecoin and bitcoin addresses. Namecoin so that I can keep the kaffie.bit domain, and perhaps register kaffiene.bit. Bitcoin, so that I can maybe bring in some money for doing this, since I'm currently unemployed :(.
My medical expenses aren't going to pay themselves... But on the bright side, I've managed to pull myself together enough to schedule an appointment with a doctor who might actually be decent, rather than just an idiot who wants to take my money for doing nothing.
Either way, this has been a bit of a deviation from the typical Kaffiene updates, since this is my personal blog after all. So hopefully that won't scare all you guys away. And I did promise gaming related stuff in my first post. So there's a bit for you. Perhaps I'll talk about A9LH and 3DS hacking in my next post.
As always, thanks for reading <3
