Another Hour in Wind Waker

I put in another hour into Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker today. I'm liking it more and more. 

I got through the second island. Then I got the sail on another island to start my sailing adventures. It's really cool to zoom over the ocean and see what's out there like: life rafts, observation posts, barrels floating around, boats sailing past and plenty of new islands. 

I made it to the third island where I discovered what the wind waker is. It's a conductor's baton. Thus began the musical element to the gameplay. Then I threw plant bombs at rocks to open pathways into the island interior. But then I had to stop for now. 

I talked to every NPC I met and took on any side missions. I'm not obesssive about completing them though. Like I didn't find all four boys hidding on the second island and I didn't find Tingle's secret stash in that maze of rat tunnels. I'm pursuing those things as they come up and going with the flow of the story instead of forcing myself to backtrack, or stay in one place overlong in order to finish every mission. I'll get back there eventually, I figure. I'd also rather have a sense of being in a real story and not some obsessive completionist gaming. 

I'll be progressing in this game little by little when I have a few moments at home.

I like wind water a lot. But I never finished it. Got to the end, but life got in the way. I used to love just sailing around and discovering stuff.

Sailing is fast when you've got the wind. I was struggling to stop the boat to look at things.

In the Wii U version you can get an upgraded sail that changes the wind's direction automatically so you always catch wind.

Cool. I'll look out for that.

I can't remember exactly, but I think you get something good when you find all the boys on the island and get Tingle's secret treasure.  Wind Waker is a great game though.  Hope you enjoy it.

I'm sure, but I found two of the four kids and went into those tunnels twice. I wasn't in the mood for more of that. I'll go back there again a find them. 

Question. Is this the first appearance of Tingle? I forget when that character was introduced in the series.

First appearance of Tingle was in Majora's Mask.
