31 Days: Day 30 - Hours Remain

   0

Hello Everyone and welcome to the second to last installment of 31 days. It’s been quite the adventure this past month both here and at home. Nothing bad though, It’s actually quite good for a change. Enough about that though, today’s song is:

 

The final Hours – Legend of Zelda Majoras mask

 

 

THEOPHANY’s cover is also really good 

 

Ahh Majora’s mask. A game that I feel in some respects may have been slightly ahead of its time. It wasn’t as well received as OoT and was often cited as the black sheep of the franchise. I’m glad it got some love and recognition with its remake and the 2 special edition items (even if they we’re super hard to get).

This song is very somber. I mean it’s the song of the end of the world as the giant moon we all know and love moves ever closer to devouring all of Termina. What really makes this song impactful in the games is both the way people react on the final day as well as the atmosphere itself. The world is shaking more frequently than before, and with each toll of the bell at the clock tower, the hour draws ever closer. Many people are either absent or cowering in fear, even the skeptical begin to question the possibility of the moon falling. Like many others this did make me nervous. I never wanted to hit the final day because of that, but eventually I got through it and realized how amazing that game really was. As I played it over the years I gained new insights and appreciation for the game. You begin to understand the sorrow, pain, and despair gripping Termina which makes the resolution so much sweeter.

If you don’t own it already I can’t recommend the game enough even after all these years. I would like to see them make a game in a similar vein to Majoras Mask (TwLP does not count). I would also love to see masks make a return, only with more use and purpose than before. That would really be something.

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.



=============================================================
A Few things about me
=============================================================

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:



You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
