Lindsey Stirling is one of our favorite musicians at this time. She does violin, mostly electric violin, and we don’t believe we’ve showcased her here a couple of times before on the site, but it’s been a while.
While Lindsey does mostly original songs right now — her next album is actually coming out near the end of this September — she does have a few gaming-related music videos up on her YouTube channel. The latest one was done a couple of years ago for the game RiME. While we’ve never played RiME, the music was beautiful, and Lindsey did a video for one of the original songs, Forgotten City. We hope you enjoy it as we do!
The Switch will have only 5 games at launch and, honestly, the main one I’m interested in is Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. There are plenty of games down the line and, supposedly, there are over 80 other titles in the works for the console, but Breath of the Wild is what I have been waiting for since it was originally announced back in 2013.
(It was announced in 2013…? Holy crap, I didn’t realize it was that long ago…)
I agree, Breath of the Wild is a game that I have been looking forward to for a long time. I’ve been yearning for a new Zelda game and the trailers for Breath of the Wild are absolutely amazing. There are certainly some games they announced that I had looked forward to and some that seemed to come out of left field.
Despite that we only caught glimpses of them so far, I am looking forward to Fire Emblem Warriors and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. More Mario Kart is always good in my book, and I had so much fun with Hyrule Warriors that I’m sure Fire Emblem Warriors will be done well, too. The Fire Emblem series is definitely one of my favorites, and with such a wide cast to choose from, I’m looking forward to seeing what characters and weapons they showcase!
I’m looking forward to watching you play Fire Emblem Warriors! While I want to play Hyrule Warriors myself, I still only know the game from watching you play it. Fire Emblem will be fun, I think. And I am, of course, excited for Mario Kart. I absolutely love that game, but I do wish they came out with a brand new one like Mario Kart 9 or something. I was looking forward to something new and fresh.
I imagine Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will have some new courses, and I know that they’re bringing back the Battle Mode that’s been absent from the past few installments of the series. I agree, though I do find it curious that they didn’t create a new Mario Kart game. Perhaps they were focusing so much on Breath of the Wild to get it perfect for launch day!
Hey, I’ll take what I can get. A new game that I’m looking forward to is Arms. It seems completely new and fresh and I think the gameplay looks awesome. It’s like Super Smash Brothers 2.0, but also an updated version of the boxing game on Wii Sports. The characters are uniquely designed and I think the motion controls will be awesome, especially if you’re playing against a friend.
That game doesn’t seem too bad, I’ll admit. I’m also cautiously curious as to what kind of Sonic the Hedgehog game will come out for the Switch. I haven’t been impressed at all with the recent Sonic Boom games. Rime also looks really interesting. I’m not quite positive as to what it’s about just yet other than it’s an adventure game with an island and a curse, but it looks really nice and I’m looking forward to seeing how it’ll play out on the Switch.
I’m hoping the Switch will give us an opportunity to try out games we wouldn’t normally think twice about. There’s a lot of games we wouldn’t be interested in, but I’m ready to try new things!
