Moving on from the depressing mysterious island in GreedFall and straight into the adorably insane mysterious island in Link’s Awakening… I’m all about da islands in my games lately! I will say it is almost impossible to be depressed while playing this game, and damn, I needed the cheerful vibes for sure. GreedFall gave me comfort while I struggled with my drama, and then Link’s Awakening reminded me what joy feels like. Yay, video games!

Invoking my self-imposed video game review rule about not letting my game summary section grow out of word count control, here is a babblethrough post detailing my journey through The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening! I truly love rambling about video games. ❤
Also: MAJOR SPOILERS as I will be describing the whole game including screenshots. You have been warned.

This is the re-posting of The Legend of Zelda review I wrote on my old website. This article was originally posted on November 6, 2016. Enjoy past me’s unedited ramblings! Figured I’d do a timely re-posting of this for the game’s 33rd release-o-versary, eh.
Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda series easily tops my list of favourite video game franchises, yet it took me this long to sit down and play the game that started it all. The modernized gamer I have become was thrown off by the lack of direction at the start of the game. I wandered into a cave, picked up a sword that was carelessly on the ground, and was warned about how it’s dangerous to go alone by a kindly old gentlemen. Then I was turned loose on the original land of Hyrule, and left to fight my way to whatever map square I pleased. Overall, I enjoyed my time with the granddaddy of open world games. I can see that this title gave a strong foundation for what has today become the imposing tower of Legend of Zelda games.

Hey! Listen. You know that popular Christmas song called the 12 Days of Christmas? Athena over at AmbiGaming came up with a cool holiday themed community collaboration idea to gamify that kinda-as-annoying-as-Navi song (that we all love or hate). Basically, it’s a countdown list each day that ends up with 364 items, times however many bloggers do this, at the end of the event (something like that… my maths is bad). Be warned that my singing voice is terrible, but here we go, eh!
🎶 On the 5th day of Blogmas, the gamers said to me: Eight characters you love! 🎶

Ho, ho, ho, internet!
Last year, the amazing Kim of Later Levels created this awesome Christmas community collaboration event thingy. I was so totally in, then I deleted my old website earlier this year, erasing my old entries of the interwebz forever. Alas!
Basically, there were 12 holiday themed questions bloggers answered on set days, in a format of their own choosing. Yep. I’m still trying to get back in touch with my joyful side after 2018’s craziness… so I’m hyping myself up for that upcoming cheery Christmas event by re-posting my old answers and providing new answers for this year. I’ve changed a lot, man.
You’re woken from your drunken haze by another frantic call from Santa, who’s worried he’s not going to make all his deliveries in time. Which video game item or vehicle would you recommend for him?

This first impressions article was originally posted on my old website on June 10th, 2017. I recently finished everything I wanted to do in the game and plan to write a review here very soon, eh. Enjoy my past self’s unedited ramblings!
All the cool kids who are lucky enough to own a Switch seem to playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe lately. I didn’t want to feel left behind, as usual, so I decided to pick up a copy a few weeks ago. I completely missed out on the Wii U version, making this title a brand spanking new experience for me. I must say that it has been ages since I played a racing game. I’ve spent hundreds of blissful childhood hours dominating the beautiful tracks of Diddy Kong Racing, but I’m a cranky old woman with slow reflexes now. What I’m getting at here is that I suck, but it’s so much fun! This is the perfect game to play alongside Horizon Zero Dawn. When I need a break from robot animal controlled Earth, I can relax by getting Blue-shelled into last place by another game’s evil AI.

Oh those glorious Nintendo 64 days are the highlight of my entire childhood! So much greatness and two freaking amazing Zelda games in one generation… what more could I ask for? I will come out and say Ocarina of Time is my favourite Zelda title (and all-time favourite video game ever) but Majora’s Mask has a very special place in my gamer heart too! And yeah, I know. I see the endless debates on the interwebz about which Zelda is the “best”. Your opinion totally matters, and by all means share it, but stop wasting time enforcing it on others. And that’s all I have to say about that, eh.
Anyway, I was super excited when the 3D remaster of Majora’s Mask was released on the 3DS a few years back! I was even more excited when I won the online checkout race and managed to snag the limited edition bundle that came with the Skull Kid figure. Take that, greedy resellers! My review of Majora’s Mask 3D was the second review I posted on my old website, back in late 2015. This is mostly the re-posting of that so please note that my review writing style has evolved a lot since then (I ramble on A LOT more these days). Now I’ll throw the words back to past me for a bit.
