Hope you have a great week! We had a busy weekend and we’re really looking forward to a nice game of Root later in the week. Also we finished Cadence of Hyrule! What a fun game, a perfect follow-up to Crypt of the Necrodancer if you’ve already played that, and a perfect introduction to that […]

Whoa! We started playing the extremely fun Cadence of Hyrule! It’s Crypt of the Necrodancer, only in Zelda. It’s all the neatness of the Crypt of the Necrodancer’s beating up baddies to the beat, only now you get to see cute little Bokoblins getting down to your beatdown! Anyway we started like hours ago and […]
