The Legend of Zelda series rates amongst my favorites in all of games. The worlds are beautiful, weird, and full of surprises. So, naturally, I was excited for the announcement and release of Link’s Awakening, a game which first released just over a month before I was born. After playing it, I’m starting to think that Link’s Awakening would have been better left in the past, recounted only in stories of how weird it is.
There has been a deluge of PlayStation news in the past week. The departure of Shawn Layden, the official launch of crossplay support on PS4, PlayStation Now price cuts, and a more in-depth look at the officially named PlayStation 5. But the news keeps coming. Let’s Go Digital has uncovered a Sony patent for a new VR headset. You may remember them as the group that uncovered the patent that was revealed to be the PlayStation 5 devkit, so there’s a history here.
I can almost pinpoint the exact moment when Sayonara Wild Hearts captured my heart. It was during the E3 2018 Nintendo Direct, I was immediately charmed by the short trailer shown. It showcased the game’s brilliant art style which is beautiful, distinct, and bold while having fluid animations and cohesion despite the multitude of distinct levels and mechanics that propel players through this experiential album. But a trailer can only tell so much about a game, especially one like Sayonara Wild Hearts.
