      This Saturday (June 30) I'm streaming all day to celebrate a full year of Twitch subs and shenanigans with all you lovely people. I'm starting around 10am (Central) and will be going until at least 10pm with a marathon of different games to hang out with my fabulous community. I'd love for you to come say hi and chill with us  purple_heart

      Get it? Because I turned 31 today? And it's a prime number?


      Yes, I did sit on that joke for a solid year.


      In spite of myself, I survived another trip around the sun. Let's go for another, shall we?

    • Nintendo E3: Meh

      1 month ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      I wrote a loooooong post about all of my Nintendo E3 thoughts. I love Nintendo games, but I don't tend to love Nintendo, if that makes sense? If you want to see the live coverage I did with ConCal, you can watch it here. My thoughts after sitting on it for a day? Here. Short version? Scroll just a little bit. Yeah just a little.


      Right there. That's good.


      I'm glad we're getting a "new" Super Smash Bros in the form of Ultimate but I don't dare actually call it a new game. It's a remix at best. With a warning to not expect anything in terms of new characters because their goal was to bring back all of the old ones, I'm not saying I won't have fun with it but I am disappointed they spent half of the presentation on a game that's not actually new.


      The lack of Metroid Prime 4, Animal Crossing, and Pikmin 4 news is sad but not surprising (especially for the latter two that are simply in various stages of the rumor mill). I'm jazzed for a new Mario Party (especially since they ditched that car business from the last one), and for fans of the series I'm glad there will be a new Fire Emblem and a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 expansion. Daemon X Machina looks like an explodey good time, but with no info beyond "here's some robot combat and you'll get it sometime next year" there's not exactly a lot to be excited about quite yet.


      Outside of that, what we saw is multiplatform titles (and even an old Wii U title) receiving ports to come to the Switch, which is simply an artificial catalog expansion. Granted, it needs a catalog expansion of some kind so this nice to see, but "something is better than nothing" is not a sustainable mentality for a console that is now over a year into its life cycle.


      Nintendo is doing things that show it realizes it made mistakes during the Wii era and it needs to make changes, but it seems to be continuously taking the wrong lessons away and I'm afraid a good console with great potential is going to suffer for it.

    • Sharing Is Caring

      1 month ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      I wrote a thing about how you can support your friends and favorite creators. You can read the whole thing on my actual blog, or if you're a CliffsNotes kinda person I've got a neat little short version right here!


      If someone makes a thing you like, whether it's art, videos, streams, music, cosplay, photography, dance, underwater basket weaving, ANYTHING, the best thing you can do is share it. Tweet it, put it on Reddit, text it to your friends, poke the person sitting next to you at the library, whatever avenue you have. People often talk about support in the monetary sense, and while that is certainly an important component in someone's pursuit of their craft, never underestimate the value of a new set of eyeballs seeing what someone has created. Do not discount your potential to make a difference based on your follower counts or a perceived lack of weight to your opinions. Sharing it also shows a creator that you liked the thing, and that little bit of feedback can mean the world.

      Long version: go here!


      Short version: I'm going to DreamHack this weekend! I'll be around most of each day, and not in cosplay so I'll be easy to find! If you're going to be at the event, totally say hi if you see me. If you're working a booth or showing off a game, let me know where to find you so I can check your stuff out! I'm super excited to be a panelist with this fine crew of folks and check out all the things the show has to offer  purple_heart

    • Improv Is Hard

      2 months ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      I had wanted to take an improv class for quite a while but always talked myself out of it. It's a really intimidating thing to do! I kind of ran out of excuses though, so this past fall I actually signed up for one through the ACC and ended up enjoying it so much I took another two classes at a local improv theater. I'm now 50 classroom hours and 2 on stage performances deep into learning this wacky world and guys...improv is hard.


      It's not hard the way you'd likely expect, though. All the basic principles of improv go directly against the behaviors we've established to be members of society. We deflect compliments with modesty and criticism with defiance, our default answer is "no", and we ask questions in conversations to show our interest. Guess what? Improv requires rewiring all of those impulses, and I don't think it will surprise you to hear that that is not an easy feat. Simply recognizing you need to do it and knowing what to look for isn't enough. These are reactionary responses, things you don't even think twice about. I'll bet you don't even notice doing it.


      I was vaguely aware of my tendencies before starting the first class, but there's a big ole spotlight on them now. The funny part is that some of these things, while accepted and expected behaviors out in every day life, should be trained out of me anyway. My biggest one: I'm never willing to accept a compliment. Even in fake improv world, if someone says something positive about my character, I still want to say "oh no it's nothing" or downplay it by returning the compliment. Accepting and integrating these things is proving to be a bigger hurdle than I expected. I'm getting better, both on and off stage, but boy was this a twist to what I thought was going to be difficult about getting up and doing this.


      Oddly enough, if someone says something negative about my character I'm pretty easily able to lean into it. I'm not entirely sure what that says about me, but playing the asshole in a scene is kind of fun.


      Anywho, I wanted to share that observation and try to encourage you to start accepting compliments from people without adding your own caveats or distractions to them. It shouldn't take an improv class for you to recognize your worth  purple_heart That said, absolutely take an improv class. Even just one of the free single session drop ins. It's an enlightening experience!

    • #CureForCrohns Charity Stream Bonanza!

      2 months ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      I want it to be known I mispelled Crohn's like 4 different ways somehow when trying to type that title and I have no idea how or why.


      Here's the short version: Crohn's disease sucks and chances are you probably know someone affected by it, and it would be really cool if the world could become a place where worrying about whether your intestines are going to destroy themselves every time you eat was a thing of the past because we figured out how to actually cure it instead of just taking a bunch of pills and hoping it's enough to calm it down for dinner. @MrWartburg put together a crackerjack team of cool kids (not sure how I weaseled my way into the group, nobody tell them I'm a nerd pls) to do a fundraising stream on Saturday May 19 towards that goal. There's some bitchin' prizes being raffled off to boot.  I'll be streaming who knows what from 3pm to 6pm Central and probably doing something dumb and punishing to my body in return for donations. Speaking of, you can donate here


      The long version: go check out this post from MrWartburg for all the sweet details on how you can get your hands on those fabulous prizes, the full roster of who all is streaming (which, I mean, you can also see in the image below but his post has the magic of links you can click on), and some other relevant yet also awesome details.

    • *taps mic* *clears throat* Uh...hi?

      2 months ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      Wow, 4 months since I last tried to make a post huh. That's...not surprising, but also still makes me feel a little bad. Only a little though. I've been able to keep up with most of you via Twitch, Twitter, and Discord, but it still is sort of weird to look at a thing I used all the time and then just...don't anymore.


      We've got a new round of "the site will be better!" brewing, and while I'm still not exactly holding my breath that this will finally be the one to give us a functioning site that people want to come back to use, I want to think it will? I miss what this was, so I'm going to try to make a point of popping back in here more. I've still been visiting, reading posts in the shadows, checking out the OCC forum from a distance, but while I'm figuring out how to reallocate my time to have a presence on all the platforms I want to be on I'm going to try to get RT back into that rotation.


      So how are you guys all doing?

    • The Power Of A Good Soundtrack

      7 months ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      No matter what form of media you tend to consume, I think we can all agree that a good soundtrack can have a wicked impact on how you react to and process it. I often will jam to soundtracks of games and movies long after I've seen/played it, and in some cases I'll throw myself deeply into albums for movies or games I never even touched. The way music resonates with emotions and the imaginative part of the brain is fascinating, and I've enjoyed doing little experiments with myself by listening to soundtrack music both with and without the context of where it's from.


      Inspired by a recent obsession, I kind of want to branch that out to see how other people react to such things. I wrote up a post the other day about the music experiment I want to run, and I'd love to see a variety of people participate in it. If you're so inclined, you can follow the link in the post to shoot me an email and I'll forward you the tracks I'm testing this out with (all track names have been removed, and the tracks themselves have been shuffled so they can exist on their own without the natural buildup present in each album). I've already had a handful of people email me and I'm really excited to see how this turns out!

    • Persona 5: What Have I Started?

      7 months ago

      LoZelda Supposedly An Adult

      I finally carved out some time for personal gaming, something I haven't done in a long time. It always has to have a purpose, so sitting down to play a game that I couldn't stream or post on YouTube was not something I had an interest in. But as other things wore me down, I made a point of slating time each week to do something that had no "practical" value for the sake of my own sanity. Recently that time was dedicated to finally trying to see what all the hype was about regarding Persona 5.


      Immediately I wished I could stream it (I know technically I could but frankly if I can't stream the whole thing I'm not going to bother starting it) because man was I having some thoughts. So, instead I wrote them down to share. I've recently posted the first two batches over on my website, but wanted to share some of my personal favorites here!


      "Hey lawyer-lady you just acknowledged I have been beaten and drugged can you calm down with your questions."


      ""Vulgar Boy" reminds me of Sun from RWBY. Loud, blonde, and probably trouble, but also oddly endearing and I think I like him."


      "IS HE NAKED? I THINK HE IS NAKED."


      "After the Love Suite of V3 I am not going into a "Training Hall of Love." Nope. Not gonna do it."


      "I feel like I'm simply playing a dark version of Kingdom Hearts, like the creators sat down to make KH but did a bunch of coke first and ended up having to confront their inner demons."


      It's certainly been an adventure. If you want to see more of what I've been thinking with my first foray into a Persona title (and there will be at least one more post coming because I'll be damned if I'm going to disappoint @Chelsea and stop now) you can check out my first two posts here and here


      We'll see how far I make it...my magic 8 ball says the outlook isn't good.

      About half an hour ago I was walking up Brazos Street to the Firehouse Hostel and we passed each other on crosswalk (I was the one tugging a suitcase and phone in hand, just came from the airport) and I'm really kicking myself for not saying hi. If I see you else where, I will definitely speak up next time c:

  • Questions answered by LoZelda

    Depends, are you enjoying it a mediocre amount?  If so, then yes.

    UNPOPULAR OPINION TIME! I think Breath of the Wild is just okay. It's pretty, and there's a lot it did right, but there's a good deal it did wrong and while it is slowly drawing me in I'm mostly continuing to play simply because I've waited 5 years for a new console Zelda game so damnit I need to play it.

    Of course! He's been on my wish list for a good number of months...I just can't bring myself to spend the money on him when I've got cosplay materials I still need to get haha

    I personally prefer punching crocodile knock-offs.
