The lilies in our yard have finally started blooming. We have a bunch of them in the yard. There is a large concentration of them in a spot where we buried the cats. Eva and Andrew want me to dig them (the lilies) up when if and when we move. Probably because we have told the kids that the cats are now part of the lilies and so we take the lilies, we take the cats.
On the Legend of Zelda front I am .09% away from being 100% complete. The thing is, I have no idea exactly where I have to go to find the last location. I have gone through the interactive map and still can’t find the missing location. So now I’ve printed out all of the locations and will have to do a checklist to find what I am missing. I’m trying to get this all done before next Friday when the DLC pack comes out with even more things to do in Hyrule.
I just finished watching a new Netflix series called GLOW. It is a half hour comedy about the creation of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling or GLOW. The show is so full of 80’s Easter Eggs. References to everything from leotards and leg warmers to Back to the Future. There is even a training montage complete with Stan Bush’s “Dare”. The show stars Allison Brie and Marc Maron and is very cheesy but funny at the same time. I do hope that there will be a second season because I’d like to know where things go next.
It is no secret that I absolutely love The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I’ve been playing it every day and running all over Hyrule. There are many great parts to the game. One thing that I have been having fun discovering has been the sunrises and sunsets all around Hyrule. I capture many of them with the screen capture button on the Switch itself. The world is so expansive and beautiful. I enjoy just walking around. But, what went into making this game and how long did it take. There are so many questions to answer and these three videos do a really nice job talking about the game and its creation. There may be some minor spoilers but nothing too major, it is mostly about what was done to make this epic game that so many have discovered and loved.
How does the world of Hyrule in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild relate to Kyoto? Where did the game’s musical inspiration come from? How were the sound effects for Link’s footsteps created? Which time period in Japanese history inspired the Sheikah Slate? All of these intriguing questions will be answered in this developer video series.
