    With all this talk of the release of the 3DS version of OoT I was wondering if any of you have beaten the game with only 3 hearts. For the N64 I only made it as far as the Shadow Temple before the gamecube came out and redirected my attention.

    Yeah, it's possible. It has been done; it's a classic challenge that people like to do when they are looking for extra replay value. [​IMG]

    Like playing Earthbound with the piracy measure still working (THOUSANDS OF ENEMIES)!!!!

    Beat Ocarina of Time with only three hearts? Nah, I'm still too busy trying to find out how to do a "never pick up the Master Sword" run.

    The uber challenge just sounds incredibly aggravating.

    I used to do the 3 hearts thing. I wouldn't pick up that faerie power that doubles your stamina and during boss fights I would rely heavily on Nayru's Love (when I was allowed to get it).

    A 3HR in OoT isn't really a challenge. The enemies and bosses are pretty dumb and predictable.

    You couldn't possibly do this without Iron Boots, could you?

    I wouldn't call glitching impressive (inb4neversaiditwas...I'm just saying)... It takes time to "master" the glitches (Although for some people, it's a cinch), but doing speed/challenge runs without glitches is much more impressive.

    On-Topic: No, I haven't. I've always wanted to try it, so maybe I will after beating Master Quest on OoT3D (Or maybe I'll do it in the Master Quest. [​IMG]).

    lol that is insane and virtually impossible, i would love to see someone try this without cheats and savestates (very unlikely to happen) it's the same with ninja gaiden on the nes no one can complete that game without cheat or save states, that game is beyond impossible.

    edit: just seen the youtube link, has that cheese guy done the whole game like this without save states and cheats?

    Will try it with the 3ds version [​IMG] Just a few questions.

    There is a death counter in the 64 version ? oO never saw that. Is there one in the 3ds version ?
    How can you beat the water temple without the iron boots ? Already at the entrance you need them ?
    Same about fire arrows and longshot :S
    Does the double magic meter count ?
    "power chrouch stab" ?
    How to get only these three songs ? Sheik jumps you in the face at special points in the game ?
    Lastly, I fought Dark Link, evberyone does ? oO What is so special about it ?

    Answer to all: Glitches.
    tl;dr you won't be able to do this in the 3D version (Unless for some reason all of the glitches are still here.)

    Lol so most of it is glitching ? Great -.- Nevermind [​IMG] Just trying it with the parts that are possible [​IMG] But what ways are there to beat Dark Link ? He blocks all the attacks. I killed him with my hookshot. I hookshoted him for a second and directly stabbed him [​IMG] Did work.

    p.s.: @Ikki, thanks for loving me *pokerface*
