November 16, 2020

Welcome to... Virtual Theater?! We've got a special episode for you! I'm moving this weekend and Al is busy, so instead of skipping a week, we decided to pull an episode out of the vaults that up until now has been Patreon exclusive to Virtual Theater podcast listeners! If you didn't know, Virtual Theater is my other podcast, where we focus on video game movies and the stories that shape them, and one sub-series we've been doing is an episode-by-episode commentary on the ridiculous Legend of Zelda 80's cartoon!

Come and laugh with Gooey and I as we go over episode #1 "The Ringer"! If you like what you hear and want to listen to more, please consider heaving over to Virtual Theater's Patreon page and becoming a member to get the rest of the series plus tons of other bonus content!

Enjoy, and see everyone in real time next week!

November 2, 2020

Wow.

That was certainly a twist, wasn't it? This week, we go FULL SPOILERS into our thoughts on the story and premise of Age of Calamity? How does it all fit together? Will this change the events of Breath of the Wild and Breath of the Wild 2? What other games or movies have used a similar trope well? Are we disappointed or excited? All this, and so much more!

PLUS, our thoughts on the actual gameplay! How are Impa and Zelda to control? What's up with the frame rate? How are the new voice actors? Come theorize with us and let us know your own theories!

Get ready to groove this week! The gang break down all their thoughts about the final piece of DLC for the rhythm based Zelda adventure Cadence of Hyrule. How is playing as Skull Kid? What are the different masks like? Is the music as great as what we expect? Will the punishing difficulty be too much for some players to overcome? And more importantly - should you buy it?

Come see if Symphony of the Mask is music to our ears or a broken record!
