    • Breath of the Wild First Impressions

      I still have plenty left to play, but I wanted to share what my initial thoughts are on Breath of the Wild. Spoiler: it's unpopular opinion time!

    • Dopp asked LoZelda a question

      Are you enjoying Breath of the Wild as much as I am?

      Answered: Mar 15, 2017

      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.

      When the Zelda DLC announcement came out, I had some strong opinions about it. I tried to make a video, but it just wasn't coming together the way I wanted, so I wrote it out instead.


      Have to say this is one of the rare times where I'm really happy with how I was able to write something.

    • March Madness - Farming Style

      1 month ago

      LoZelda RTX PA Team Lead

      A few weeks ago one of my community, @gamenut_1 , came up with a brilliant way to have a point system in Stardew Valley and proposed a friendly competition. We all took an afternoon and did a short run of it while in a voice chat and had a load of fun. For a game that's not supposed to be competitive, it was an interesting twist on the game. Of course, if some is good more must be better, right?


      We're going to do it again, but in a much longer form. All of my Discord community who want to participate will start new files and have the entire month of March to complete the first year of the game on the farm type of their choice. At that end everyone will tally their scores based on the scheme that Gamenut came up with, and the top three scores will get bragging rights as the best virtual farmers and a prize! I've got a couple things lined up to be for grabs that the 1st place winner will get to pick from in addition to 1000 rupees (our in-chat Revlo currency), while 2nd place will get 500 rupees and third will get 250 rupees.


      I wish I didn't have to limit it to my Discord peeps, but trying to expand it outside of that makes proper tracking nearly impossible.  Too many opportunities for cheating. Maybe sometime in the future, because I'm sure we'll do something just as ridiculous again at some point. That said, if you want in on it, you gotta join the Discord! It's available to Patreon backers at the gold level and is also a Revlo perk for time spent watching the stream/following on Twitter/subbing on YouTube.


      I'm pretty excited for this because it's such a neat idea. I give my community total credit for this being a thing between coming up with scoring, setting up rules, and designing the whole competition set up. They're kind of great  purple_heart

      SEE YOU IN THE FIELDS, BITCHES!

    • Day 1 of Day 5

      LoZelda RTX PA Team Lead

      Today is the first day of filming for the new season of Day 5, and I'm super pumped to be on the crew and see how this will all come together. I've been working as a production assistant for the last 3 weeks to help get everything ready to go, and to see it take off this morning was awesome. Live action production is definitely a very different beast than I've worked with before, but I've been learning a ton and look forward to what else I can pick up over the course of the shoot.


      To new adventures! And to not sleeping. That is both a nod to the show and also an actual assessment of what I think the next several weeks of my life are going to look like.

    • World Cancer Day

      1 month ago

      LoZelda RTX PA Team Lead

      February 4th is World Cancer Day, an intense reminder that we still have a long way to go toward finding cures and less destructive treatments for this grouping of illnesses. As this has touched me personally, I want to talk a little bit about the best thing you can do to protect yourself from the disease.


      Go. To. Your. Fucking. Doctor.


      So many cancers are now relatively treatable with early detection, it is imperative you catch them as quickly as you can. Keep an eye out for odd developments with your body (lumps, discolorations, sudden changes in function) and get them checked out. Do your yearly check-ups. LADIES, go get your pap done at least every three years once you're either sexually active or you're 21 years of age (do them yearly for a while if you ever get an abnormal result). Keep up to date on your vaccines. Don't smoke. Drink responsibly. Don't ignore problems with your health.


      You can do everything right and still end up with cancerous growths. Sometimes your body is just out to get you. Taking care of yourself, though, means you're more likely to catch it in its Stage 0 or Stage 1 phases, which are infinitely easier to treat. It still may not be the greatest thing, but its far better than letting it spread and take hold in places that are more difficult to deal with.


      Everyone's journey is different, but I want to remind you all that I am totally willing to be open and transparent about my cancer diagnosis and treatment, and will answer any questions I can about the experience. I was incredibly fortunate that mine was caught as early as it was, and despite it ending in a hysterectomy I know I had an easier path than most when it comes to cancer. I will always be grateful for that. I hope that one day we can reach a place where no one else has to make that choice.


      Take care of yourselves  two_hearts



    • Work It, Girl

      1 month ago

      LoZelda RTX PA Team Lead

      I was in Austin for a grand total of 48 hours before landing a gig. It's just a 4 month contract, but it's work! No idea what I'm going to do after it wraps, but that's a problem for Future Jenn. I can't say anything about what I'm doing at the moment (contract jobs in Austin love their NDAs), but you'll know eventually  blush


      For now, I'm going to enjoy the experience and learning about the industry. And also work 87 hours a week apparently. So, you know, streams will be a little wonky for a while.

    • Stardew Valley Calculator - Done!

      1 month ago

      LoZelda RTX PA Team Lead

      I have gotten fully addicted to this game and I'm not even ashamed to admit it. I can't explain why, and god knows that trying to describe the game makes it sound as exciting as watching paint dry (kinda like trying to describe Papers, Please), but I just want to play it all the damn time.


      I am super analytical, and since the major component of the game is making money on your farm, I of course had to know: what's the best way to do that?  With so many crops, different ways to process them, and bonuses from different professions, there are a lot of factors to take into account. Sooooooo I made a spreadsheet for it. Because that's how I roll.


      There are other sheets out there (I found several Reddit threads), but they either didn't take into account professions or I found errors in how their calculations ran. You know what they say, if you want something done right do it yourself! As a bonus, since spreadsheets can be intimidating to people who aren't as data driven, there's a TL;DR tab that gives you a very basic summary of the useful bits out of all the numbers.


      It's no fun if I'm the only person who benefits from this, so I'm sharing it with everyone! I'll update it whenever there's changes to the game (additions of items, changes in prices, etc), though if you make your own copy of it you obviously won't get those updates so it's worth checking it whenever a game update comes out. 


      Enjoy  purple_heart

    • Eleven Little Roosters Plan

      2 months ago

      LoZelda RTX PA Team Lead

      When Ten Little Roosters happened, I got super into it. I love mysteries and puzzles. My mom and I used to watch mystery shows and share mystery novels all the time. TLR was right up my alley, and while ultimately I made mistakes during the run I had a ton of fun dissecting it. I took it a step further and made a series of analysis videos for each episode to show my process and talk about my choices (except for the final episode, since there was no mystery to solve at that point).


      After ELR was announced, a few people asked me if I'd do the same thing. Without knowing the format of the new season, I said I hoped to do the same thing but we'd have to see. Now that it's underway, it's looking like the answer is probably no. I wanted to do them again, but since the files are going to be revealed each week rather than at the end of the season and I wouldn't want to put the videos out until submissions close I'm not sure there's much of a point. Add to that the fact that I'm currently in the middle of traveling and can't make a vid for episode 1 in a reasonable time frame (don't worry, I did complete that episode and submit my answer!), and I'm not seeing it happen.


      Oh well! I'm still fully invested in ELR even if I'm not doing the videos like I did last time. I was skeptical at first when the new format was announced, but I'm loving it already. It was a little awkward going into the first episode not really understanding what to expect the Haywood Files to look like (physical files? just a code name for typical clues?), but once it was obvious what we were looking for I fell right back into the analytical routine. It took about 2 hours to crack everything, and some of that was struggling with technology (something I needed did NOT want to work on my laptop or my phone). I cannot wait for the new episode this afternoon!


      How did you do on the first round?

    • Goodbye, Michigan

      I'm moving tomorrow. My stuff is mostly packed, it's getting loaded into the car, and I'm spending the day with @LoLink since we have no idea when we'll see each other again. Skype and the like helps, but it's not quite the same. Honestly I've probably packed more than I need, but considering this arrangement could last anywhere between 2 and 6 months it's hard to prepare appropriately.


      I'm excited to start this next journey, but also incredibly nervous. I have a wonderful support system, and I'm fortunate to have this opportunity in a lot of ways, but it isn't without risk. The Doubt Monster has firmly sunk its fangs into my mind, and the fear of failure is ridiculous. I'm hopeful that the job opportunities that have been floated to me will come to fruition, but without paperwork in hand you never know for sure.


      Tomorrow I head to TN to see the awesome @Desayjin. He has promised to show me the finest cuisine the city has to offer actually he never said that but now that I've said he did he has to, and I'm sure shenanigans will be had! Friday I leave there to head to AR to see my family for a few days (and celebrate my sister's birthday with her in person for the first time in like 5 years!). Tuesday is D-Day, or A-Day I guess, as I'll finish my little adventure and end up in Austin on the 24th.


      Obviously there won't be any streams while I'm traveling, but there will be videos going up on my YouTube channel the whole time (some stream archives, some new stuff!). I'll also be checking in on my Discord pretty regularly (when I'm not driving that is!), so if you're one of my lovely Patreons you'll still get a pretty regular Jenn-fix  smile


      See you all on the other side!  purple_heart

      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:

    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.
