Resolution: Majora’s Mask, Part 2


That’s right it is finally here! It’s the return of relatively regular posts about my New Year’s resolution to avoid killing in video games. We are returning with the second half of my write up for Majora’s Mask 3DS.

Disclaimer: To maintain my steam of consciousness writing style, I did not look up the names for anything I’m talking about. I then didn’t edit it after ward because I think it might make the post more accessible, and is more funny written that way.

I pretty much had just started the swamp story line, having met the Deku King and the monkey he’s pissed off at. After that I got to an area with giant mosquitos, one of whom I accidentally killed by shooting out of one of those giant flower things. If anyone seriously tries to suggest I should have known that would happen because it’s obvious, I recommend they reread that sentence.

So that brings the year’s kill count to 4. That’s 2 humans, 1 orc, and 1 giant mosquito.

Today we will NOT be talking about playing Majora’s Mask. That will be Part 2. Part 1 will instead be about everything I experience around the game before playing it (at the time I am writing this I have not started playing yet.)
