100th Post

Today were not doing  Daily Post Challenge. Instead, I’m making a simple post. This will be my 100th post on DaHubbz.

This channel is not huge in any sense of the word, however, the regulars that have flocked to my post have been truly great.

Some people comment.
Some people give likes.
Some people simply read.

But regardless that means a lot to me.

I started back in June(July?) with the sole intent of meeting people to chat about Pokemon and Anime. And that’s what I’ve done. I look forward to logging in every day to chat with cool people.

January was our biggest month. Post everyday was challenging with school, but I’m glad I stuck with it.

I thought that would be the biggest thing I did on this account, but I have a project coming up that I hope you guys will enjoy.

I’m still learning to be a good blogger. I’m still developing my own personality and style. I’m still working on networking and meeting new people.(I rarely comment on stuff. I gotta change that this year).

Anyway, I hope you guys have enjoyed the content so far. I’m open to reviewing any anime or manga. Follow me on here and get involved with the content. Follow me on twitter and let’s chat.

Here’s to a good year and 100 more post. Thanks to everyone who motivated me to keep blogging

As always, thanks for reading!

Check back tomorrow for more daily post!

Daily Blog Challenge: February 5th Top Five Ocarina Songs

It’s Friday, time for a Top Five!

Today’s Theme: Favorite Ocarina Songs!

Music, whether it’s themes or soundtracks or songs, mean a huge part to games. It’s what makes horror games horrifying(Sounds in general). But if there is any one game franchise defined by it’s soundtrack(That isnt a music based game), It’s The Legend of Zelda. I think in hindsight that’s one of the reasons Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask(OoT more so) have been instant classics. I know little of the technicality of music. What I’m basing this off of is the feelings and memories these conjured up when I went back an listened to them again.

#5- Song of Healing- What a tone setter for Majora’s Mask. Meant to personify the tormented souls Link aids in his journey, it does quite the job. This song, coupled with the cut scenes of the souls finding their bodies, is totally a chilling experience to watch. It put’s you in their shoes. It’s the perfect song for a game like this. It’s even so good it makes faces fall off!

#4- Song of Storms- Maybe one of the more iconic songs to me in the whole franchise(Like just simply a song in general). It’s very fast and very chaotic. Not only does it capture the essences of a storm, it also captures the feel of the game at time. You were just a small village boy from the woods when destiny threw a deku curve nut. Now you posses this Triforce and your the hero of legend. Whoa! Also the old man lossing his absolute mind when he hear’s it is still one of my favorite scenes in all of Zelda.

#3- Song of Time- Probably the song you’ll use the most in your quest. You’re going to hear it several times and it will grow on you. One of the two iconic songs to come from OoT. You can’t forget it. If you’re playing Majora’s Mask, you already have the sucker memorized. Right A Down, *three days pass* Right A Down, *Three Days Past* Right A Down. It’s almost like it never ends…

#2- Zelda’s Lullaby- From the general fan, die hards and noobies a like, this is probably the song. I mean THE SONG. Learning this song on the castle grounds makes that whole experience magical. It’s calming, mysterious, and special. It’s every element of that that makes Legend of Zelda timeless rolled into a song. It perfectly explains Link and Zelda’s relationship. To hear Link play Zelda’s lullaby to advance in his quest shows how no matter how far apart they are, they always are truly thinking of each other and helping each other.

#1- Epona’s Song- I suppose this is where the list gets controversial. No, this is not one of my signature wacky picks. This is honestly my favorite song. And maybe the reason why I fell in love with the game. Yes, I struggled and went back and forth on making Zelda’s Lullaby one and Song of Time 2 and Epona’s song somewhere down the list. But, I just could not. If you read my first post on the Legend of Zelda, you know I stumbled upon the game when my uncle was showing my cousin how to play. The part they were at was Lon Lon ranch. They were learning this song. I walked in from the kitchen to the living room and this was the first thing. I heard Malon’s soothing voice coming in strong, followed by Link reciting the same sounds, and finally the song playing beautifully. In that moment a bond was born between Link and his horse. In the same moment, a bond was born between me and that little game. I had no idea the magnitude it would have on me though. And for that reason, I have to leave Epona’s song as number one.

So what’s you favorite Ocarina song?

Daily Blog Challenge:February 4th

Today’s Theme: My favorite race.

I like the Legend of Zelda has used some unique-ish races in it’s game. The dekus are an interesting plant based life form. The Zoras are fish people. Lastly, the Gorons are mountain dwellers. Oh, and the two human races, Hylians and Sheikahs. Those there are the main, though they’re not the only ones

So which is my favorite: Zoras.

The dekus are beautiful and very peaceful(For the most part). Though, they’ve never struck me as interesting. They do become somewhat of an interest in Windwaker due to a more reoccurring nature of the race within that game. Gorons are quite funny and their civilizations may be up there in the most fun to adventure in. They give personality to Death Mountain in Ocarina of Time. However, Zoros are the race I think is the most interesting throughout the whole the series.

They got their start as River Zoras in the original game. They were villains and albeit very annoying and flat villains, but later on they became an interesting part of the Zelda mythos.  In some of the old games, they granted Link the ability to swim or better maneuvering in water. Not to mention, from the Zora’s Domain to the the Great Bay, they always have some of the prettiest homelands in the series. I remember being captivated by the Zora ‘s Domain in Ocarina of Time. Their fancy hierarchy and the Jabu-Jabu fish just made them a fun clan to learn about.

So whose your favorite race in The Legend of Zelda universe?

Daily Blog Challenge: February 3rd

Today’s Theme: Which game had the best supporting cast?

As much as I love the Zelda series, their NPC’s just feel flat most of the time. I mean the regulars are solid, but I just do not get immersed with the npc like in Fallout per se. One game I do feel is different. One game I think got the NPC’s right.

So which game is it: Windwaker

windwaker cast

Yes. I feel Windwaker had the best supporting cast. I suppose you could make an argument for Majora’s mask. After all, you see all these people in their finally days! But I have to give the nod to Windwaker. Windwaker is much more vibrant and I think that goes well with the characters. From the pirates, to the dekus, to the rito’s.  The characters brought out the best of their island, and the islands brought out the best in their inhabitants. It’s this special relationship that I think that gives it the advantage.

Daily Blog Challenge: February 2nd

Today marks the first daily blog of February! This months theme is Legend of Zelda based. So all questions will be about LoZ

Today’s Theme: My First Experience Will The Legend of Zelda

My first time with the LoZ franchise was Ocarina of Time. This is probably common for early to mid 90’s kid. Originally I was watching my uncle teach my cousin how to play. It was at the Lon Lon ranch. They had just learned Epona’s song. I do not know what it was exactly. I never really played games as much as I did watch them. I watched my dad and mom play games before bed a lot. This was the first game I saw someone play and thought “Oh, man. I have to learn to play this game. Like right now.” My memory is not the best, so I never remember which I played first: Pokemon Red or LoZ.

Now, I’ve played every home console one except Skyward Sword because it required motion plus, which I did not have at the time sadly.

So what was your first experience with the Legend of Zelda? Were you throwing it back on the NES or rocking the new Wii titles? Or somewhere in the middle?
