Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks: "Making a Whirldwind"
Posted: Thursday December 3rd, 2009 by

So Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks for the DS is set to release in just a few days (12/7 NA). And in reading a preview of the game the author mentions a whirlwind mechanic which requires the user to blow into the DS' microphone to set the thing atwirl. [more info]

Now where I can appreciate incorporating technology into the game play experience, I'd really rather not have to blow into the mic while I'm sitting on a crowded plane. The same way I didn't want to do the reading out loud element of Brain Age wile I was in public.

I'm not sure if there is an alternative to blowing in the mic. **shrugs** May be. We'll find out soon enough. But when I read about the whirlwind/mic blowing thing, all I could think of was Lauren Bacall's classic line "You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow". It's the sexy darling of 40's cinema. So, initially I intended to have Zelda in there with Link looking all flowery and smitten. But using Link's wise old guide, Anjean, instead was infinitely more creepy.

My path was an obvious one.
