GYGO: I Just Wanna Ride Prince Sidon onto Death Mountain

Good morningtimes, fellow co-pilots in this thing we call life. It’s time again for your favorite day of the week: Wednesday! What better day is there than GYGO day?? Jokes aside, a lot happened this week. Nintendo has been sued for defective Joy-Con controllers, two former Doom and Wolfenstein developers have opened a no-crunch-allowed game studio called Bad Yolk, and my personal favorite:

GYGO: BotW VR, Assassin’s Creed Vikings, and BioWare’s Anthem Woes

Happy Wednesday! What games are you playing this week? I have been obsessed with Watch Dogs 2, which has gameplay similarities to GTA V, but you play as a hacker trying to take down major corporations that are stealing people’s personal data.

Rich in Friends: Finding All 900 Koroks in Breath of the Wild

Sidequest complete: after over a year of playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I finally found every Korok in the game.

I started playing Breath of the Wild in the summer of 2017, just a few months after it was released, and right around the one-year anniversary of graduating from my master’s program. Since graduating, I had only been able to find part-time and temporary work at a couple jobs (one of which was in my field, at least!). I was poor financially but rich in free time… especially during the day, when my roommate went to her full-time job and left her Nintendo Switch unattended! (Don’t worry, my roommate was cool with me making my own account on her Switch and playing games when she wasn’t around). (more…)
