Haney 2:11
That’s this computer that I’m looking at right now. Yeah. And that was really worried about you factory resetting without me here. Yeah, yeah.

Chris 2:17
Well, here’s the thing handy. I didn’t necessarily copy over the save files. When I factory reset the computer. Okay, now you may be wondering, what does this have to do with coffee? We lost all of our progress. Oh, prices score. Excellent. And Majoris mess. Okay, so the past two weeks. I’ve come here and I’ve played through those games back up to the point we were at to make a new save file so we can continue the podcast. And I wouldn’t be here.

Haney 4:20
you Absolutely.

Unknown Speaker 4:21
Can you call him son of a bitch.

Chris 4:25
You know, I was unsure of how good of a gamer I was until today. And now I know. I’m really just the cream of the crop. Just the tippy top of pro gamers. And I have to say it feels good. I’m happy to be here. What do you think?

Haney 4:44
We’d like to take this time to announce that this is the last episode featuring Chris and we will be replacing him with literally anyone else. Honestly, I would take a rock with a face painted on this fuck. You don’t mean that now we have fun here. Yeah. Brace one of us did. I have a very important question for you to lead us off?

Chris 5:04
I got a very less important answer.

Haney 5:06
What worked for prehistoric creatures? Did Britain Sir Richard oh and Coyne in 1842? Chair Dactyl close dinosaur.

Chris 5:14
I feel like I nailed that one. He is pretty close. As close as I’ve gotten a

Haney 5:18
for those listening at home and he found Trivial Pursuit cards and has been pulling them out at random points to ask Chris questions from them.

Chris 5:26
I think that’s a pretty fun addition to first encounter, but I think it should probably be one per talk through. Let’s not go crazy here.

Haney 5:32
Yeah, like Yeah, go ahead and put those down and start talking.

Chris 5:37
Yeah, talk to me. Hey, hey, how are ya? Good. My pits are sweaty. Yeah,

Haney 5:41
it’s pretty hot in this room.

Chris 5:42
You’re popping pills like nobody’s business tic

Haney 5:45
tac. Would you like a tic tac audience?

Chris 5:48
It’s a pretty adventure.

Haney 5:51
Do you want to go on an adventure with me?

Chris 5:52
You keep asking me and I keep saying yes. And I’m still stuck in this record on your handout. With a green, little lime green.

Haney 6:00
What’s your lime green?

Chris 6:01
Yeah, that’s what they call me. Mr. Lime Green.

Haney 6:03
That’s what they call Luigi. There’s a in Louise Manson. Yeah, actually, yeah. The booze column. Mr. Lime Green. Hmm. Spoilers Luigi.

Unknown Speaker 6:12
Booze Cruise

Chris 6:13
will eventually be a great episode title.

Haney 6:16
Yes, yes. And so we play we played for two hours. Sorry. I it was really hard for me to get the word play out of my mouth for what I just watched. Chris. Do

Chris 6:30
I had a really good time? I feel like this is just me. This isn’t a joke. I feel like this is the most I’ve connected to the game so far. I’m not joking. Like this is the most fun I’ve had with this game up till now. What I’ve just witnessed

Haney 6:43
was Chris basically waging a spiritual holy war against everything I stay in a video game.

Chris 6:53
There was a good time.

Haney 6:54
We had a good time. I had a blast. So Chris, we played The Legend of Zelda Majora Xmas today.

Chris 6:59
Yes, we picked up Majoris mask last time we saved right inside the swamp swamp. In today’s episode, we picked up right at the swamp and he saved and I turned about face and I walked right out of the swamp.

Haney 7:12
Yeah, cuz, can you explain why you had to walk out of the swamp? Yes,

Chris 7:17
I had to deposit my rupees.

Haney 7:18
Because you lost track of time. And it was like halfway through day three.

Unknown Speaker 7:22
That’s fine. That’s that’s just

Chris 7:23
gonna be a running thing. Yes, it’s

Haney 7:25
pretty fair. So at this point, you’re running to determine a field. And this is where you have to two things that kind of happened that aren’t that interesting, but I was amused by them. One is the wolves attacking you. They shouldn’t be there. That’s that’s where we keep our that’s where we keep our wolves.

Chris 7:40
There’s just no good. Yeah, first of all, they’re not wolves. They’re werewolves. Yes. What the fox? Why there should not be swamp werewolves. That’s just not good. It’s a

Haney 7:47
nightmare. That’s actually when you say it out loud. That sounds terrifying. Yeah.

Chris 7:51
Ah. Oh shit. That’s a werewolf. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Why did they come into the ground?

Haney 8:01
Why wouldn’t they? That’s where werewolves come from? What

Chris 8:04
are you talking about? No,

Haney 8:06
there’s so many of them hunting you down.

Chris 8:08
Why are they in?

Haney 8:09
My God? There’s so many why and why are they in the field? Why aren’t you fighting them? Why are you running?

Chris 8:14
Christmas scare me? How are you gonna level up? They weren’t in the field in October. Yeah, I don’t think do I hear a cow? Yeah, no.

Haney 8:25
Walk back the Yes. Why do Where the fuck is the cow? You also heard a cow at this point. Yeah. In termina field but there’s no cattle are no. So that’s the thing to just know. Oh, yeah, I

Chris 8:40
guess so. I never found them.

Haney 8:42
It was interesting to me because I was like, is that a canonize?

Chris 8:48
I do hear a cow. Where’s that?

Haney 8:50
I bet it’s on the tall grass. Oh, it’s getting louder when you walk towards the tall grass actually. Chris where’s the cow it’s Oh, good. What? Every time you get close to the grass over there there’s a cow the grass over where this grass? Nope. That’s right. Yeah, the grass patch. This? Whatever you want. What do you mean whatever I

Unknown Speaker 9:12
want? Well, I

Chris 9:13
thought you were making a Pokemon joke. I thought that’s why you said tall grass.

Haney 9:16
No, there’s a little plug grass here and I heard a

Chris 9:21
that wasn’t a cow. I’m sure we’ll work our way back. I

Haney 9:25
hope so. I I have to look up what that was. No, no, no. Huh? Yeah. That’s why I was so curious about it. Because I was like, Why isn’t accountable is it might just be a minor thing that I’ve forgotten about. But I’m like, That’s it just seemed weird. Because it’s like there’s no cows around. Yeah, it was

Chris 9:44
coming from the tall grass. Yeah. And there’s no cows. There’s some Milltek or something that’s going to spread up against Yeah, please. Roll out.

Chris 12:05
find my way right back in swamp. Oh, right.

Haney 12:09
Back is a strong word. The thing I really love about this game is the ability to reset time. Yeah, so like at any point you’re like, oh, yeah, I don’t have to worry about this. Yeah, like I don’t think there’s anything other than like that first chunk of time like the first three days before you get the awkward enough where you can’t repeat it.

Chris 12:27
I’m definitely gonna approach this game. Like a warm bath. I’m just gonna let it walk every they’re just gonna soak in a bath so yeah, stop right there. You some errand in the swamp. I haven’t taken a bath and it’s dangerous outside the town walls so I cannot allow a Chad like you to afford sword. My apologies, sir. It was wrong of me to treat you like a child.

Haney 12:53
I like how it turned me in the field seems more dangerous during the day than at night.

Chris 12:56
I don’t know. I don’t like the werewolves. Those aren’t in the field. Those are only in the swamp. Okay. Gotcha. Fuck you. Fuck you.

Haney 13:04
Live in swamps only. fuck was that a creature spawned and then immediately disappeared. Really? Yeah, I saw that too. Don’t like that field. Not for me.

Chris 13:15
Head back to the swamp where people do appreciate me. Yeah, yes. And

Haney 13:24
you. You found? Yeah, yeah. But before you found the hut directly behind the hut. There’s a big creature. Yeah, an aqua rock. We call it. You call it and you decided to just dive right at its face.

Chris 13:39
Well, you made it sound very friendly.

Haney 13:42
I did not.

Chris 13:43
You said yeah, I said okay. Pretty cool. swam up to it.

Haney 13:49
He sucked you up into this little snooty. And he did a booty 2d. Right out of his snooty have you? Yeah. Spit your right across the swamp. No good.

Chris 13:59
It’s like a little sucking spit. And I said that’s enough of that. What is your problem?

Haney 14:06
Nothing. Nothing. Oh, I got big old Octo rock, if you will. I don’t know if I will. What? Do I do not like the octo rock. I want to talk to you. Ah, no. Do you think he likes he’s still very

Haney 14:49
I like his outfit.

Chris 14:50

Haney 14:52
He’s bare chested. Except for a small vest.

Chris 14:55
That’s why I don’t remember his outfit. Yeah, it’s great. Yeah, it’s pretty good.

Haney 14:59

He runs a book tour business. Yep. And on the side. He has a photo contest. Obviously tight. Yeah. Um, unfortunately, I didn’t have any pictograph boxes. Yeah, that’s cameras for all you premium millennials. I was gonna say

Haney 16:12
yes. Yep. Then the Zoomers called?

Chris 16:15
Yeah, back in the day, we used pictograph boxes. So

Well, then,

Chris 16:45

Haney 16:47
a look at this pictograph every time and always makes me laugh.

Chris 16:53
First start doing this like I’m screen choose these. See? Yeah, this is your first time entering the pictograph contest. Well, the swamp tourist center is currently holding a pictograph contest is open to all ages from children to adults. I’m an adult because I have a sword. Yeah, that’s true. For nice pictographs taking the swap a free book cruise will be awarded as a special prize. So would you like to enter a contest? Oh, but the Enter you first must take the book cruise. I’d like to book cruise reservations are handled at that window over there. You’re interested in go for ride?

Haney 17:26
Do you like tingles pup? Ah,

Chris 17:28
yeah. So wait a minute. The Octo rock is just to prevent people from like taking free rides. Is that right?

Haney 17:37
I don’t know if that’s the intention. But yeah, that’s

Chris 17:38
definitely what’s happening. Yeah, I assume the octo rock works for this guy. Can I read you?

Unknown Speaker 17:44
Old Khomeini’s boat cruise? Take it off. It’s closed. Please inquire the magic hags potion shop near the edge of the swamp.

Chris 17:54
So that’s cool. I need to find at this point. A pictograph. Box. Yeah. And I go over to talk to the window that supposed to kind of offer the poisoned swamp tour rides. If you will, if you will. There’s no one there.

Haney 18:12
No. Where the hell as ever? I

Chris 18:14
don’t know. I guess I’ll make my way back around. That’s fine. Yeah. At this point, I head back into the swamp kind of go a little further. And I’m looking for a potion shop. Yeah, I know. There’s some witches out here.

Haney 18:26
Yeah, that’s swamp witches make sense? Yeah.

Chris 18:28
Yeah. came upon it pretty quickly. Yeah, it’s literally the next right next to each other their neighbors.

Unknown Speaker 18:37
Magic hags potion shop ahead. No, what’s this?

Chris 18:41
I assume it’s a potion shop.

Haney 18:43
Why would the buck What do you think that?

Chris 18:45
It’s just got that vibe. I don’t want Hearthstone rubies.

Haney 18:49
You probably want hearts. No, we’re very close.

Chris 18:52
Those so I’m a pro gamer boy.

Haney 18:54
Huh? Hmm. I want another meat gun.

Chris 19:00

Chris 19:10
Sir fresh spring water from the swamp. Yeah. This is this home. Oh, blue Ruby. Hello Blue. Blue. P if you will be Yeah, that’s what they call it.

Haney 19:19
Why don’t you climb? You climb?

Chris 19:21
Knock Knock. Knock. No

Unknown Speaker 19:23
joke.

Unknown Speaker 19:24
It is lick.

Haney 19:28
Oh, what a cool building. That’s pretty cool. I love the witches magic potion shop.

Chris 19:32
Yeah, just kind of a wicked teapot again. Yeah,

Haney 19:35
it’s really good that that is good.

Chris 19:39
So we roll into the potion shop. Yeah, we talked to the witch sisters there. And she’s like, my sister’s missing. She went into the I don’t remember what the the works of mystery. Yeah. Which I had kind of stumbled across initially and said,

Haney 19:55
Now I’m good. Yeah, you’re like you literally turned around without going like navasana

Chris 19:59
I need to do this here. So here’s something that I feel like I do a very good job of following in this game especially, is my objective list, right? I have a mission you have to do is I’m going to accomplish it. Nothing is going to distract me from my mission. Yeah. Talk to the sister. She said, Hey, there’s my sister’s missing.

Haney 20:21
You got to go. mushroom hunting in the in the woods. Why don’t you go find her? Okay, so I said all right.

Unknown Speaker 20:27
Magic hags potion shop.

Unknown Speaker 20:30
Oh, can I have a brew?

Haney 20:32
Thank you. I don’t think so.

Chris 20:33
That’d be really good. So you can zoom in around.

Haney 20:36
You can talk to all Comey. Oh,

Chris 20:38
it’s coming. Lizard.

Haney 20:40
No, she’s an old lady. Ah.

Unknown Speaker 20:44
Welcome. My poll should work very well. They do. Are you by chance a boat cruise customer could be how unfortunate Comey has gone into the woods out back looking for shrooms. Hmm, no, I think about it. She’s a bit late coming back. say could you go find a for me? It’s easy to get lost in those woods as that monkeys that live there.

Haney 21:09
Guess what? I just asked the monkeys.

Chris 21:13
I said alright. Return to the mysterious woods. The sleeping forest. The Lost Woods. And just you know, strode in there. There’s a monkey.

Haney 21:23
Yeah. Well, monkeys like, follow me. So no, I played and he does the else follow me.

Chris 21:29
And I did. You did. I followed him. There’s so when you go into the woods, there’s kind of a north, south, east and west path that you can follow. Yeah. And when you talk to the monkey, and he says follow me. He just kind of takes off down one of the paths and you’re like, cool, and he just takes different paths and you’re supposed to follow him through the woods. To pick you out though.

Haney 21:48
This is kind of weird when you’re on a rescue mission.

Chris 21:50
Yeah. Didn’t work though. No, just followed him straight all the way through. First try. I got it done. No problem. Really.

Haney 21:58
It’s interesting here because my notes actually say it took you four times to get through the woods because you fucked up. The first time you just lost the monkey tire. Well,

Chris 22:11
here’s the thing to be fair. There were turtles that were trying to murder me. Gang lay there. Turtles with spikes. They spin in this bad it’s bad time. So I guess what I should have said was I nailed it on the fifth try? Yes. Crushed it. Yeah, no problem. Yeah.

Haney 22:30
So you got lost a couple times. But eventually you memorize the pattern enough to not fuck it all up.

Chris 22:35
That’s fine. Did my job.

Haney 22:39
The fuck is this?

Chris 22:39
I assume that’s a monkey. But I don’t do anything speaking.

Unknown Speaker 22:44
Follow me.

Haney 22:48
I gotta follow him or what? Fuck, this is gonna be hilarious.

Unknown Speaker 22:54
Gang gang. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, I

Chris 22:57
agree. Turtle. Shit. I lost him.

Haney 23:00
Oh, no.

Chris 23:02
This is okay. Southern swamp. This is just where it was. Yeah, you

Haney 23:06
took a wrong turn. What the fuck?

Chris 23:08
Fuck. Some Lost Woods.

Haney 23:14
I mean, it’s the literal loss was music that’s playing right now. You should know.

Chris 23:17
I’m sleeping forest. Follow me. Take me there. Fuck me. Oh, no. That’s fine.

Haney 23:28
I’ve been waiting so long for the for this moment. Follow me

this is my favorite thing that’s ever happened

Chris 23:42
to me, follow me.

Haney 23:45
You get out of the woods, or into the last section of the woods of mystery. And there’s a bunch of monkeys surrounding an old woman on the ground. Yeah, in the agony

Chris 23:55
kind of looks like they beat her up. Not good. But drew my sword. Did you attack the monkeys? No, but I probably should have. It was very suspicious. But she

Haney 24:05
tells you that it was the dang Skull Kid. Yeah, who knocked her from behind when she wasn’t looking. She’s like, I don’t understand how he asked his parents. Just the frickin school kid and I like how did he get the best of me? Like What? What? Yeah, but she’s not feeling so hot. She’s like, why don’t you give me something to make me feel better and fill me with energy, which Chris replied quickly. I have nothing to give you.

Unknown Speaker 24:28
I was just busy minding my own business picking mushrooms when I got hit from behind that pesky Skull Kid. Do you think that wouldn’t recognize him if he hit his face? Interesting. Wow. To think he’s that powerful. Now I can’t even move me you don’t you have anything that gives you energy? What is this? You’re no help. I say you’re not at all what you make yourself out to be?

Chris 24:53

Dragonflies almost died. Found another hut. Yeah, this is the the fearful spider house. Yeah. Which was new to you?

Yeah. How do you get fire? Can you just describe the fearful spider house for our listeners at home.

Chris 38:45
So it’s a little hot in the middle of the swamp. And the front door is covered by very thick cobwebs that you can’t get through. So you grab a stick. I immediately knew what to do. I was like, yeah, that fire right there lit up my torch burned down the cobweb entering the house.

Haney 39:00
And this is where we cut in the part where you literally had to tell him to turn around because it wasn’t even hidden.

Chris 39:06
We always have time to turn around handy when you’re on a mission

Haney 39:12
because literally look behind you. Oh Good God, man.
