I am here because my husband loves this site. He is KyleGamgee if anyone is familiar. I am not a hardcore gamer but I do love to try stuff out and so far my favorite is Fable. I can't wait for Fable 2. We own a Halo 3 Edition XBox 360, a PS2, a Wii, and some old school systems (including a top loading NES!). Its part of our life and I love being the kind of wife who plays with her husband and you can take that however you want...
About 2 nights ago I finally finished Zelda: Phantom Hourglass for my DS. After playing most of the game everyday for a couple of weeks I came up against the last boss, Posessed Linebeck. And I got stuck. Could not for the life of me beat him.
Then I put it down and didn't pick it up again for a month or so. Then the other night, I got online to read a walkthrough because I was determined to beat this thing and could not figure out where I was going wrong. After reading the W/T 3 times it dawned on me what my mistake was. After attacking him you have to break your stalemate and at that point you attack him to knock Ceila loose. Like and idiot I have been trying to run behind him to knock her loose. And it sssooooo wasn't necessary. Just attack his front you idiot. I did that, lo and behold it worked. SO I finally beat the game. Talk about stupidity. But I am glad I beat it.
It was, by far, one of the most fun games I've ever played. I really liked it. Although it was strange that everyone kept calling Link by my name, Donna. Kinda unnerving. The sea travel was much faster than Windwaker, thank goodness. I am looking forward very much to the next Zelda.
However, this leaves me with only BrainAge and Mario Party for my DS. So I need a new game. Any suggestions? Or should I take to the forums for that?
