Zelda 2020: Age of Calamity and Cadence of Hyrule DLC

This week, Nintendo dropped a surprise announcement for a new Hyrule Warriors game set during the war 100 years before the events of Breath of the Wild. And after announcing three dlc packs for Cadence of Hyrule a couple months ago, they just announced that the third, Symphony of the Mask, would be coming out […]

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Diaries #34

It’s fall in Animal Crossing! There’s new bugs, fish, and sea creatures, as well as pinecones and acorns to collect for new diy recipes. It still looks a lot like summer, but I love that the leaves gradually turn colors throughout the season. The hibiscus are still blooming, but the sweet olives will be budding […]

A Year of Zelda: The Original Legend of Zelda

It’s the very first game in the series, the one that introduced us to Link, Zelda, and Ganon, to dungeons and secrets, the triforce (but not of courage) and the iconic overworld theme. It even established green, red, and blue as the colors for Link, Ganon, and Zelda respectively, if only subtly and unintentionally. It’s […]

Cooking Like Link: Trying out Zelda-Inspired Recipes

Earlier this year I promised I would get around to making some video game-inspired dishes and while I haven’t done too many so far, I figured I have enough to write a little post on it. I love games that feature cooking elements and special foods – it brings that extra element of immersion for […]

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Diaries #33

We’re halfway through August, so we only have a couple weeks until fall in Animal Crossing! I’m excited for the leaves changing color, mushroom furniture, and the fall update. But it’s still summer, and I’ve still got a few things to do before fall arrives. So I realized I have a few bugs and fish […]

Characters Missing from New Horizons

Despite adding a lot of new features to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, quite a lot is missing from previous games, including several well loved characters. I’m guessing (hoping) a lot of them will show up in future events/updates, like Rover for a special May Day island. In my opinion, it’s a good way of giving […]

Animal Crossing Diaries #32

It’s fireworks season in Animal Crossing, and dare I say they’re better than the real thing? It’s pretty relaxing just to go on and listen to the fireworks. And Redd’s got lots of fun raffle items like sparklers (which villagers can use!) and fountain fireworks. The villagers even look up at and react to the […]

A Year of Zelda: A Celebration of The Legend of Zelda’s 35th Anniversary

For awhile I’ve been wanting to do a playthrough of all the Zelda games in release order. With the series’ 35th anniversary coming up next year, I thought now would be the prefect time for it, as well as a nice build up for the Breath of the Wild sequel. I also thought it would […]
