|First playthrough commentary: Part 8|
I just made Link look like the Link from the 80's Zelda cartoon, by putting on the warm doublet and the green cap I got from an amiibo.
Found a side path leading to the Wasteland Tower... it's surrounded by a sludge pit, and this troll wind keeps preventing me from just gliding across it... so now I'm using magnesis and piling up boxes on the sludge to make a platforming path... but you have to be really quick cuz the boxes sink... actually, if you pile up enough boxes, they can't sink any lower and you can stand on them.
So many past Zelda game references around here... Spectacle Rock, Yarna Valley, Gerudo Desert...
Seems like this whole canyon area benefits a lot from having a horse... and I just found a horse stable on the west side of Gerudo Canyon...
Some NPC here says his friends got attacked and he left them behind in the canyon, and wants someone to go find them... then he goes on about the mystical sword found in the Great Hyrule Forest.
This desert atmosphere is perfect... I even feel like I'm seeing mirages I think... Suddenly I see a cutscene showing the next divine beast, a giant robo camel creating lighting out of his footsteps... and creating a huge sandstorm all around him...
Got to an oasis... Gerudo Town is further southwest of here... people are saying Vah Naboris has been creating sandstorms everywhere and is a constant threat to the town... This desert is hot during the day and cold at night...
A Goron is waiting for the sandstorm to pass so he can get to where that tower to the north is...
A Gerudo guard is walking around, posing as a merchant to watch for yiga intruders... instead of being hostile to Hylians like in OoT, they are only hostile to the Yiga.
The canyon on the north side of Gerudo Desert goes WAY high up... I found Gerudo Tower, coming out of a huge spiral bottomless pit... I guess it's not really bottomless, just goes so far down that you couldn't possibly climb out of it, so the game just makes you die instead... lol I wonder if this is the fissure that the demons came out of in Skyward Sword.
I hear that familiar tune... Kass is ontop of the Gerudo Tower.
As light shines in the Northwest skies, from the tower's shadow an arrow flies. Pierce the heaven's light to reveal a prize.That was easy. Same sort of puzzle as the Fire Arrows in OoT.
Climbed up further beyond the Gerudo Tower, into the Gerudo Highlands... a very low-visibility snowy area with a lot of vertical cliffs.
Blizzrobe... Ice Chuchus... a lot of strong ice enemies up here... and treasure buried in the snow... Got to a shrine in a new non-snowy area further north...
