"Seriously, don't &$#@ with the chickens!"

The guys over at the fantastically named Joystick Division (mondo bonus points for naming a site after an awesome band) penned a hilarious article on the five things we have learned from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

Here is a little taste of the brilliance:

2.) You can always make a little extra cash if you know where to look.

We’ll always remember the feeling of being low on rupees in Zelda 3.
“Oh man,” We’d say. “Looks like it’s time for a visit to the cave.”
Then we’d venture down into that one particular cave where a pissed-looking guy in a beanie had surrounded himself with ceramic pots. Wasting no time, we’d proceed to wreck the guy’s entire collection of pots as he looked on. I would take the money under the pots – and there’s ALWAYS money under the pots – and be on my way. The guy in the cave would be left, presumably in shock, with no choice but to fire up the kiln and make all those pots again from scratch, weeping in rage as he thought of the terrible little man with the merry green tunic.

Venture over to their awesome site and have a look at the full article of hilarious reminiscence.

    Those were actually pretty funny, don't f**k with chickens.

    Oh my gosh, these are so funny! My favorite is the first one–"the cuccos make hilarious clucking noises as you bash them with your sword"–something to that effect. I wish I had whatever gaming platform (Super NES?) this went on; I would certainly like to buy it.

    Oh, and there are actually four things (not your fault, Bastian!) listed. Number five features the picture above with the same dialogue. That's it. The same point was made in number one, pretty much: "No messy with Cluckoo". I'm not dissing the article or anything such–I found it very entertaining and worthwhile. ;*]

    @ Thar: If you have a Wii, just hook it up to your wireless(or wired) internet, get a Nintendo points card at Walmart, Target, Gamestop, etc., then buy A Link to the Past on Virtual Console and be on your way into the gaming awesomeness that is the Super Nintendo generation.

    Alternatively, take your GBA/SP/DS and the get LttP cartridge for GBA.

    I liked the "Chivalry" one. where ever there's a princess in danger, Link will be there…..especially a princess as pretty and cute as Zelda, hehe…

    and yeah, don't mess with the cuccos. The Occoos, however, fell free to stab away. they're to illogical to fight back. (hey, they don't, do they?)
