I know I've already posted about this, so please forgive the spam, but I'm back with another new project. Well, not strictly a new project; long-time visitors of this account will remember that a while back, I opened up a YouTube account called 'HuntFreak!' - but removed it shortly after, because I was doing other things. Well, I'm back in the saddle now, coming at ya like Cleopatra with HuntFreak! 2.0! It's a set of two channels (YouTube and Vimeo) that aim to feature all that's hot in the world of the 'monster hunting' game genre; hunt videos, product reviews, editorial/commentary/analysis, and all the jazz from games like Monster Hunter, Toukiden, and Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. If it involves hunting colossal creatures, I'm totally there; I'm seriously nerdy, and have a lot of time on my hands, so you can expect quite a few updates.
If this sounds like your sort of thing, I'd love to have you as a subscriber to either (or both
The Gerudo Era, part 16
She was ready.
Her lord had demanded her to be swift, precise and downright brutal in her retaliation as Twinrova was moving as fast as she could with her warband. Moblins and Stalfos were following her, two highly mobile forces that could ride along with her as she floated, moving toward their target: Lon Lon Ranch. An explosion had resonated within a considerable distance from the castle, the smoke a signal that an act of treacherous rebellion was afoot, one that Ganondorf had to kill in its infancy, if only to send a clear message.
You do not mess with the rightful ruler of Hyrule. Not now. Not ever.
It took close to no time for her and her forces to get nearby as she could see a contingent of Zoras and some Gorons, a bizarre gathering to say the least. What caught her interest, though, were two oddities amongst them: a Gerudo youngster and an Hylian that she knew very well. It seemed that Ganondorf had correctly recognized the source of this turmoil as Link, the Hero of Time, was a

Working was all that he could do to distract himself.
As Link hammered away at the rocks with his Megaton Hammer to break debris into boulders fit to build a massive wall around the remnants of Kakariko Village, his thoughts drifted to three main subjects.One was the well-being of his lover, Fiora. Was she alright? What would Twinrova and Ganondorf do to her? And what about the child growing in her womb? What would they do with that? It left poor Link in worry, the aching in his muscles never quite pushing away those endless questions and dark thoughts, no matter how much he tried.
Even though the hammer went on to break many rocks, its sounds couldn't push away other worries, with the second big one being about those he had loved and lost. With the exceptions of Ganondorf, Twinrova, and Nabooru, the entire Gerudo race could be considered his family. Every Gerudo was either his wife or his daughter in a way, and during the few attacks that occurred, he had lost a lot of them. While he

The smell of burning webs and spider carcass was filling the village.
It hadn't been a particularly rough battle, nor one to drain their ressources too much. With plenty of Gerudo warriors going into teams of three, armed with spears and scimitars, the very large arachnid that had plagued the whole place were either killed, or they simply fled as the forces occupying the area did not have the time or the opportunity to properly give chase. Twinrova's army were amassing outside and, as such, there was no time to do that as time was of the essence. With the villagers finally freed from the catacombs below the graveyard, a safe yet macabre hiding place, everyone could return to their home as they participated in the cleaning of the place who would, for the moment, turn into the home base of the resistance. With everything that had just happened and all the fighting that kept on piling on, the stress and duress that everyone had to suffer through only accumulated as the task up ahead kept

This would certainly come in handy for the war.
With the bomb flowers now converted to actual bombs, Shehra followed the odd Goron named Link to a cave that looked like it had two big boulders in it at one point. There was a strange music emanating from it, a music that seemed to be played by ghosts, an eerie guide from ever-afar, never to be seen, but always heard. The further they went, the clearer the melody was, playing all around them. She followed Link through several tunnels passing by a strange pool of water. “Hey, what’s the pool for?” Shehra asked, finding its location rather strange due to the stone pathway deep beneath the surface.
“It’s a secret passage to the entryway of Zora’s Domain.” Link replied, the Kokiri long-since accustomed to this strange wonder that they were passing with a few steps.
Having explained that, they soon arrived in the remains of what looked like a village made of tree stumps, very large ones. It was desert

It had been a long time since she had been free like this.
After watching the now-liberated Link get out of her tent, Nabooru felt a little troubled at what she had done and what she believed had been done to her. With mixed feelings about using this ancestral and dangerous technique, even for beneficial purposes, the unease she felt would not go away as even though she had probably helped a great hero in his time of need. It was not the fact that she could have messed him up even more than he already was or that she could relate to his plea even when he was under her control. What disturbed her most was the fact that she had, deep in her mind, enjoyed the performance she had put. Even though she had been brought in a trance against her will for so long, there had been a definite thrill to what she had done, to the way Link had been subjugated and seduced by her prowess, on how he couldn't resist her dance. Was it a curse for the Gerudo to be able to dance and enslave people, to make t

Shehra followed the Goron to the cave where Goron City was, in awe. Link was his name like her father’s? It made Shehra wonder much about him. “Um, L-L-Link?” she asked, hesitant to call him that considering the strangeness of the situation.
“Yes?” Link the Goron replied.
“I’m curious, where did you get that name from?” Shehra asked.
“My father gave it to me. He named me after the great hero of the Gorons who killed off the Dodongos and returned out main source of food back to our people,” Link replied.
“And who is your father?” Shehra asked.
At this, Link paused bringing his hands to his now hung-down head where he was rubbing his eyes as he began to cry, an act that caught Shehra off-guard. The Gerudos were a tough and firm people, not much of a crying type, but she figured that whatever had happened in this city involved this young Goron’s father. She had to get him to settle down if she was to get any ans
JackHammer Reviews: The L.O.Z. Twilight Princess
Hey JackHammer here and welcome to another video game review, and today we'll be looking at one of my very favorite if not my favorite game in the Zelda franchise, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. (Oh and some possible spoilers might be coming up)
While I do admire Ocarina of Time for setting the standard for most action-adventure games, What I love about Twilight Princess is that it feels more like a movie, while still being a fun game to play, with more realistic characters, a darker tone, a mix of epic, scary, and beautiful music, and legitimate drama.
As the first Zelda game to be rated T for Teen, the people at Nintendo really took advantage of it with some pretty scary monsters and some pretty brutal scenes (like when Midna literally stabs Zant in the chest with her powers)
In every Zelda game, Nintendo would take the Zelda f
JackHammer Reviews: The L.O.Z. Majora's Mask
Hey JackHammer here with another video game review, and today we'll be looking the 2nd of the 5 Zelda games I played, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.
Now, this is sort of a direct sequel to Ocarina of Time where Link leaves Hyrule and comes across the land of Termina.
First off, I like how this game gives us something different than Ocarina of Time, like giving us a different setting other than Hyrule for a change, Taking out Princess Zelda (only showing her in one flashback), giving us the ability to time travel with only 3 days before the end of the world, possibly some of the coolest masks ever made, and a cool villain outside of Ganondorf (which in this case is Majora's Mask)
Some people might be turned off by the fact that the main plot is shorter than Ocarina of Time with less dungeons and boss battles, but they made up for that with some cool side quests (My favorite side quest would be the one with Anju and Kafei)
JackHammer Reviews: The L.O.Z. Ocarina of Time
Hey JackHammer here and welcome to my first ever video game review, and we'll be looking at what is arguably the most popular game from one of the biggest video game franchises of all time, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Now just to let you know, I do love The Legend of Zelda, but I only play the 3D Zelda games that were on the Nintendo 64, Gamecube, or Wii. 5 of them to be exact, but I'll get to those games another time.
But back on to Ocarina of Time, what can I say that hasn't been said, It pretty much revolutionized both the Zelda franchise and Video Games in general.
It has the same classic story as most Zelda games, but also like most Zelda games, Nintendo still manages to make it feel fresh. The quests are fun, the music is memorable, the world of Hyrule is nice to look at, the monsters are fun to kill, and the characters although weird at times are still loveable.
While A Link to the Past was notorious for introducing the famous 3 tri
Upon Feeling the New World. Twilight Princess.
My eyes open upon the odd feeling,
That teleportation leaves the mind reeling,
My heart in my throat,
My voice did croak,
Upon feeling the new world.
Darkness covers everything like a shroud,
The people within look at me proud,
No curse shall I reap,
For disturbing their sleep,
Upon feeling the new world.
Light dweller that visits us,
In all respect, please forgive us,
Go into the castle, free us,
He binds and imprisons us,
Upon feeling the new world.
I chop and change to my lupine form,
Forcibly to spill my blood while warm,
The hands that follow me,
To try and catch myself and she,
Upon feeling the new world.
He sits in the throne, quaint and calm,
This to us, we fear no alarm,
For he fights me in rage,
Free as a bird without the cage,
To keep this new world as his own.
The New Life Part 3
Part Three - How Does This Keep Happening?!
Packing for a family trip is never easy. While Ciela gave Atei and Ziruh a bath, I flew around the farm as if I was being chased around by the cucco revenge squad. I quickly got all the animals into the paddock, some taking more treat persuasion than others, as well as collecting any free range eggs the cuccos had decided to lay in my path, some of which were nearly stood on. Not just by me. This path includes our heaviest bovine which prefers not to move when I want her to.
I stuck my neck out and put my hands on my hips. “Right.” I stated. “You are going to go into the paddock. Now.”
No response other than chewing on some hay from the bovine nicknamed Lola.
I tapped my foot and took the hay basket from the side of her pen. She looked at me sleepily. I shook it. Nothing. Lola hated going outside, more so in cooler weather but she had to have the proper diet of grass and get a cool drink of water from the trough.
The New Life Part 2
Part Two - An Idea
Ciela woke me on the couch shortly after dawn; she seemed well rested. Unlike some in the house.
“Zauz?” she said quietly running a hand gently over my forehead as she did every morning. I opened my sleepy eyes to see her standing before me with Atei perched on her hip in a burgundy coloured baby grow. Naturally, she was chewing on my wife’s dressing-gown with her toothless gums with as much intent as a wolfos on a piece of meat.
“Yes, honey?” I replied sinking further into the cushion my head was resting on.
“Do you want some breakfast?” Ciela asked switching Atei over to the other hip. Cue the disgruntled chewing.
“Sure.” I muttered even though I wasn’t feeling like it. “I’ll get some milk.”
“Thanks dear.” Ciela replied putting Atei in her high chair, of which she started to chew the arms of.
I slipped some boots on my feet and went round to the barn and opened the doors with
Wake Up, Link. Breath of the Wild.
It had been quiet and dark for so long,
It had made his body long cold,
The darkness had swooped in,
And had taken his breath away.
Lying motionless like stone for 99 years,
As the clock continued ticking,
The second a century had passed,
Coughs, splutters and quiet moans,
Echoed within the halls,
The dust became unsettled and airborne,
As the body of a young man moved.
He stretched and rolled his neck,
This tomb had been his home,
Open the door,
Open the door!
Light bathed the halls, his home,
The dark became day,
Wind and sound hugged him in heart,
He rushed out to the green,
A whole new world,
Older than the one he’d left,
Only adventure awaits,
To be brave once more.
The New Life Part 1
Part One - The Nightly Routine
It’s been about five years since I turned into Zauz. Believe me the change was tough. I work with my wife and my young son on the ranch in the dead centre of Hyrule Field, the days are long, exhausting and hot, more so when we have the little one to consider.
Our little one is called Ziruh. He’s a good boy, mostly. He tries his best when working on the farm with us but he’s still a little too young at four years old. He turns five next week. My wife, Ciela wants to get him fabric for a new tunic for his birthday; poor Ziruh just has to twist wrong and the tunic he’s wearing just rips up the butt cheeks.
Oh, did I mention I have a little girl too? No? Well, she’s still new; Ciela named her Atei. She’s a beautiful baby with very fine blondish hair, Ziruh on the other hand has a good crop of ginger hair the colour of oats. Atei is a quiet child for a new baby; we’ve chalked it up to her just being lazy. Ziruh cried a

The Gerudo Era, part 10
Her resistance was crumbling fast.
For all her wisdom, inner strength and resolve, it was clear that Fiora was losing the battle within her body and mind. The venom coursing through her veins, her own actions were shaped by another will, making her a barely-aware puppet. Retaining even a modicum of her thoughts was a true challenge, yet one that she had not failed yet. It was a matter of time, but she had faith that the Gerudo and Link would somewhat find a way to rescue her, to free her before it would be too late. Lost in darkness, both literally and figuratively, her sight had difficulty adjusting to her environment as her dulled senses and groggy vision didn't help her in the slightest in this dire predicament. She had no idea where she was or how she came to be here, but she still held up hope. Her ignorance, however, was dispelled by the sudden appearances of two bright flames, one blue and one fiery red, as it illuminated the area to reveal the figure of a particularly tall and

This was a troublesome view.
Seeing, to her shock, her once best friend and leader now unconscious and in the service of Ganondorf, Namira then began to understand just why she had been away for all these years. Her first reaction was relief, her friend being actually alive, yet this reaction was not widespread in the camp, as her daughter rose her sword in the air, ready to finish her off.
“You will not harm anyone else ever again, traitor,” Shakti said, barely restraining her anger as she prepared to finish her opponent in a swift, efficient, yet decidedly messy strike.
“No!” Namira shouted, running over to her daughter and tackling her to the ground, trying to restrain her. “No Namira! This isn’t an enemy! She’s our former leader, Nabooru!”
Struggling against her mother, thoughts of revenge towards the one that dared attack her, Shakti suddenly stopped, hearing the name her mother spoke. Nabooru? The greatest thief in all of Gerudo Val

It had been a while since his last true battle.
Training, simulacrums of dangerous scenarios and mock battles were all that he had done in a long while, as Link tightly gripped his Master Sword. Despite its lack of use, the weapon still felt entirely natural in his hand, its weight familiar in a way that felt innate, confirming once more that it was the chosen blade for the Hero of Time. In the heat of incoming battle, he eyed his opponent as the tall, floating witch looked at him with a confident smirk on her face, highlighted by a combination of blue and red flames coming from her hair. Not only was she his first actual opponent, but she seemed powerful, reeking of magic and of tricks that could very well spell his doom if he was careless.
''Such a pitiable fate, to have kept yourself hidden for so long, only to have to face me. You really have no luck,'' Twinrova cackled, her laughter filling the area as her army did just the same. ''Go fight the others and make sure they learn thei
The Gerudo Era, part 7
Sitting within the underground encampment, Shakti and Shehra waited for nearly half an hour until the guard that had led them here arrived with an elderly man and a young girl. “Here are the girls I was telling you of sir,” the guard explained. “The girls who claim that they are daughters of Link.”
Inspecting them, the elderly man nodded, inspecting closely so as to ensure those rather surprising claims.''You, young lady,” he spoke, looking at Shehra, noting her fair skin and blonde hair. “You bear resemblance to Link, but also to someone else who was sacred to Hyrule. Tell me, who was your mother?”
“My mother?” Shehra asked. “Why she is the head bodyguard to my aunt, Namira, the leader of the Gerudo tribe.''
Looking her up and down, the old man then asked, “Are you sure of that? Are you sure that your mother wasn’t the beautiful embodiment of the Goddess of Wisdom, Princess Zelda? It would explain the... air, that
