Speedrunner Finishes The Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past Blindfolded

first_img Rhythm Game Spin-Offs We Want After ‘Cadence of Hyrule’Fan-Made ‘Zelda’ Tabletop Game Returns You to the Wild There used to be a time when finishing a game quickly was an accomplishment in and of itself. As time progressed, players started adding stipulations to make their speed runs even more challenging. One of the latest examples of this is a speedrunner who managed to beat The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past while blindfolded.This incredible feat was accomplished by a Canadian speedrunner named ParisianPlayer. He managed to beat all of the game’s bosses and discovered most of its secrets while wearing a Budweiser scarf around his face. ParisianPlayer wanted to do a challenging but achievable speedrun. For that, he decided on an “all bosses, all glitches” run — thus making this speedrun the first of its kind.For this speed run to work, ParisianPlayer used Link’s sword and bombs as a form of echolocation. This not only helped him orientate himself but also allowed him to take advantage of some of the game’s glitches. These exploits allowed ParisianPlayer to get some of the game’s strongest equipment early on. He could have used other glitches to completely bi-pass entire sections of the game. However, his goal was to beat every boss so he only used glitches that helped him obtain certain items that would make defeating them possible.The other major challenge of this nearly ten-hour speedrun was physical. ParisianPlayer had to stay sitting in the same spot the entire time. This meant no bathroom or food breaks. Occasionally, someone from the Blindfolded Brotherhood (a group of gamers who do blindfolded speedruns) would check in with ParisianPlayer over Discord to let him know what was happening in the chat. Besides that, this dedicated player was all alone while doing this speedrun.Make sure to follow this link so that you can read a fuller account of this amazing speedrun.

Chinas Lunar Probe Is Ready to Explore the Moons Far Side

first_img Rare Harvest Moon Will Light Up Night Sky on Friday the 13thIndia Finds Lost Vikram Lander on Moon’s Surface China’s lunar probe, Chang’e-4, is set to explore the moon’s mysterious far side.In early 2019, the Chinese civilian space program aims to land the lunar probe at Aitkin Basin, a big impact crater by the Moon’s south pole, NPR reported.Even though China hasn’t shared the exact landing date, the Chang’e-4 probe will help scientists study this part of the moon, which we can’t see from our planet. The six-wheeled rover contains cameras and a ground-penetrating radar that can look below the moon’s lunar surface.On Dec. 9, China launched the Chang’e-4 probe from the Sichuan-based Xichang Satellite Launch Center. It’s expected to make the first-ever soft landing on the far side of the moon, and provide more details on the location’s lunar soil components and terrain.Once it reaches the moon’s far side, it will engage in low-frequency radio astronomical observation, conduct surveys of landforms, detect mineral composition, and measure neutron radiation.Researchers are also excited to learn more about the Aitkin Basin and other areas of the moon’s far side. “The far side is actually much more primitive — it contains really ancient crust that dates back to the very, very early solar system,” Briony Horgan, a Purdue University planetary scientist, told NPR. “There are rocks all over the far side that are over four billion years old,” she adds. “We’re really excited to see what those look like, up close.”More on Geek.com:China Launches Lunar Probe to Far Side of the MoonHistoric Israeli Moon Mission Will Carry Time Capsule to SpaceBoot That Almost Went to the Moon Goes Up for Auction Stay on targetlast_img read more
