Link puts down his sword and pics up a mic in Legend

Link puts down his sword and pics up a mic in Legend

first_imgWe all know Link as the sword wielding hero from The Legend of Zelda series, but what if he put away his blade and slayed foes with the power of rhyme? This is something that you can see for yourself in a hilarious browser game called The Legend of Zelda: The Hero of Rhyme. The idea of a rapping Link is unusual, but the results are pure magic.The Hero of Rhyme is graphically based on A Link to the Past. It plays very much like that classic game, only instead of engaging enemies in melee combat you instead have to battle them by rapping. You’ll navigate Link through dungeons, forests, castles, and everything else you’d see in a Zelda game. The main goal is to acquire 500 “rap points” so that you can face off against Ganon and his super fresh rhymes. The game actually lets you challenge Ganon very early on, but if you do, he will destroy you with his lyrical skills. There is no auto-save feature, so you’ll have to start all over from the beginning.You can see a bit of the game down below. Just be aware that the audio is very much NSFW, so make sure to have your headphones on. We don’t want you to be fired.The game was posted on Newgrounds by a user called Deklaration. It has met with a very warm response, and some users have already demanded a sequel. As fun as this game is, one has to wonder how long it will be before Nintendo has it taken down.Just this year, the big N has shut down several fan-made projects including the Metroid II remake, Pokemon: Uranium, No Mario’s Sky, and even had an archive of Nintendo Power magazines pulled. The company is ruthless when it comes to its intellectual properties so don’t expect The Hero of Rhyme to be around for much longer.If you want to check out the game before the inevitable Nintendo ban-hammer comes down, you can find it here.last_img read more

Woman Unknowingly Bragged About Poaching Deer to Game Warden on Dating App

Woman Unknowingly Bragged About Poaching Deer to Game Warden on Dating App

first_img All’s fair in love and wildlife conservation.When Oklahoma game warden Cannon Harrison matched with a local woman on dating app Bumble, he probably didn’t expect their first date to be in court.The 24-year-old connected with his potential mate in December, when she messaged him to say hello. (Bumble requires female users to make first contact.)Striking up a conversation, Harrison asked how she was doing.Great, she said, having just shot a “bigo buck” (that’s “big ol’ buck” in Oklahoma-ese).“Pretty happy about it,” she wrote.Harrison told the Washington Post that he initially thought this was a prank.While his dating profile says nothing about his job, many in rural McIntosh County, where he’s worked since 2017, recognize him as the game warden.“Honestly, the first thing I thought was that it was someone who was messing with me because they knew who I was,” he told the Post. “It seemed too good to be true.”Game warden Cannon Harrison didn’t find love, but he found a criminal (via Oklahoma Game Wardens/Cannon Harrison)But he played along, saluting her catch and asking if she “got em with a bow.” The season in which licensed Oklahoma residents can hunt deer with rifles ended in early December; crossbow hunting, however, remains legal through mid-January.“Well we don’t need to talk about that,” the woman responded—a dead giveaway that she’d not been following the rules.Still, Harrison pushed, inquiring whether she’d been spotlighting, the illegal practice of figuratively freezing an animal with a bright light (i.e. the deer-in-headlights effect).“Yeahhhh,” she wrote, before telling the game warden her general location and sending a trio of incriminating photos: one of her holding the deer by its antlers, and two graphic images of its bloody, decapitated body.The next morning, game wardens showed up at her home.She has since pleaded guilty to hunting deer out of season and possessing game that was taken illegally, according to the Post. She will not face jail time.Wildlife conservation officials on Sunday shared the story on the Oklahoma Game Wardens Facebook group, with the hashtag #DateNight.“As game wardens our personal lives are often blurred into our professional lives. This is often the case when it comes to social media, personal cell phones, and now dating apps,” the post said. “Thanks to Warden Harrison for sharing this entertaining case.”More on Geek.com:Watch: Drone Helps Rescue Deer From Frozen LakePencil-Sized AI Device to Protect Wildlife From Poachers‘Badass’ Bobcat Named Mr. Murderbritches Released Into the WildGeek’s Guide to Online Dating Stay on target Video Call Bumble Matches Without Exchanging NumbersMatch App’s Dating Coaches Are Here to Ease Your Nerves last_img read more
