The Legend of Zelda: The Ancient Stone Tablets [Satellaview] - Chapter 3/4: Lawnmower Simulator

This is where the longplay unravels ever so slightly. Screw re-records, because failure is always funny... well, almost always. This part contains the killer Desert Palace, which is every bit as annoying as its Link to the Past counterpart, and then some. Undeterred, we trek on and are rewarded by a brush with royalty. Splendid, this is pleasant!

By this point I'd already played through the whole game, which afforded me some Mystic Meg-style foresight into Chapter 4. Hopefully I didn't give too much away in saying we have to defeat Ganon, because I don't believe I've played a Zelda game that doesn't cast him as the main antagonist.

Also in this part: feeling sorry for thieves; the magic bee returns; reminiscing upon past inglories; flaunting our rusty sword; desert survival tips; our weekly puzzle failure; harassing the fortune teller; swimming pool health and safety and Sakayama the Mole. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? Well believe me, as with most Harry Yack uploads, it really ain't. :P

Actually, I quite like this part and think it's the best yet. Chapter 4 is also pretty good, but you can't have any pudding if you don't eat your meat. How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?!
