Some Zelda Gameplay & Smashburger

Photo-A-Day #4464

I keep working on the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Sword Trials. I have completed the lower trials. These are the easiest ones, the first 15. Once I do that the Master Sword gets 10 points stronger. You are transported back to the Korok forest to start the middle trials. I discovered that it makes no sense to try and do the first 15 again in hopes that you continue to the next fifteen with the items that you found in the first set of trials. So, you do each set of trials to upgrade the Master sword 10 points at a time. Right after the part of video that I finished I got killed by a tougher enemy. I was one level away from finishing the Middle trials. Ouch.

Allison and the kids are visiting with our in-laws tonight and when they are away I tend to head over to Smashburger for dinner. I just love that place. Such good burgers and their fried pickles are great! I am always social when I am there, posting pictures of the meals and such. I posted today’s photo to Instagram and twitter and the usual places where you can find me.

LOZ BOTW: Mastering DLC Pack 1

Playing Legend of Zelda

I am enjoying the Legend of Zelda DLC Pack 1. With it you get a whole bunch of new armor that you have to find throughout the world and a whole bunch of new challenges. The most important challenge for me is the Sword Trials. This is old school gaming at its best. I say old school because there are no breaks and there is no way to save your progress. Also, if you die you start all over. It is frustrating but I do like a challenge. With 45 separate floors or challenges broken up into 3 fifteen floor sets there is a lot of work to be done.

You start the floors with nothing. You only have the abilities that you have mastered with you Sheikah Slate. The Sheikah Slate is a magical tablet that grants you different powers like generating bombs, stopping time and mastery over magnetic items. With it you can get started picking off bad guys. You have to find everything you can as you go through the floors to help you through all the trials. It has been fun to do and I made it through the first 15 so far. I hope that I can work through the rest of them to upgrade my sword. Then I will attempt to play the game on the hard or master level.
