Zelda 1 Randomizer w/ fcoughlin Part 1 + Pseudo-boots, FAD Keys, & Hard Item Pools

00:00 / 01:58:23

Have you ever noticed how just about every Zelda game involves some form of ancestor reverence at one point or another? Clearly Link knows the importance of paying homage to those that came before him and, dangit, so do we! timp, Daaanty, and Hurfydurfy kick of the episode with some in-depth takes shared about some new modes being toyed with, including Pseudo-boots, FAD Keys, and a tweaked item pool mode that SGL21 has been floating. There’s also a new term for the ALTTPR Racing Council, some tourney updates, and more. FEATURE: The GMP Crew welcomes the creator of Zelda 1 Randomizer, fcoughlin, on for a two-parter. In this episode, they discuss the basics of Z1R including its beginnings, item logic, and the racing scene around it, as well as an examination of ALTTPR’s Retro mode.

Look forward to Part 2 during our next episode, which features talk on how to start playing Z1R and a discussion of fcoughlin’s Super Mario Bros. 3 Randomizer!

  • News could include updates on new versions of the logic, tournament recaps and predictions, interviews, discussion, debate, and anything else that counts as a “current event” in the aLttP Rando community.
  • Randomizer Walkthroughs may include breakdowns of dungeon logic, tips for defeating bosses, and even more abstract concepts like movement or rupee farming.
