The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

I just finished “The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds” for the Nintendo 3DS so here’s a few random thoughts.

The hype for this game led me to buy it. I actually sold my 3DS back in July, 8 months ago, and so I had to by a 3DS just to play.

Feminist Frequency

If you haven’t watch Feminist Frequency you should. Depending on your background it might be a hard message to hear but trust me, if you listen with an open mind I think you’ll get something out of it. I know I did.

Assembly 2013

I decided to go to Helsinki to attend Assembly 2013. I was kind of mixed on it as I’m a little burnt out but some friends told me I had to go see Finland and with their encouragement I went.

They have showers. I just went the first day to see what it was like and then came back the night of the 3rd day to see most of the competitions.

Android vs iOS Game Myths

I was hoping Chris Pruett would post a version of his talk, “Fact and Fiction: Lessons From Wind-Up Knight and Rise Of The Blobs” but he has not done so yet. The talk is available on the GDC Vault so if you attended GDC you can watch it there. It’s only 23 minutes.

In it he attempted to break some common myths about iOS vs Android games. Of course this is just his experience but he made the point that most of the myths of iOS vs Android are not backed up by any data so he brought all his data.

I’m kind of hoping if I post this he’ll feel compelled to post a version of his talk in his own words instead of mine. Hey Chris. Post your talk! In the meantime here’s my summary of his talk
