Bbain's Jukebox, Shade-Style: Zelda

Once again I've had a pretty significant hiatus, but here we are back for the tunes. Welcome back to Bbain's Jukebox! By the time you read this, I'll probably be on my way to go see The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Godde...

 




Bbain's Jukebox, Shade-Style: Gibberish

Boy, oh boy, has it been a long time since we've been here. Welcome back to Bbain's Jukebox! I'm making good used of my new-found "free time" with a new music blog for all y'all. I know RadicalYoseph is up for more of these, ...

 




Here are some answers, now AMA!

Going full Jeopardy! up in this mother. There's been a whole lot of AMA going around. That's fine, but what fun is it to wait for a question and then provide the answer afterwards? No fun at all, obviously! So I've decid...

About ShadeOfLightone of us since 7:43 AM on 07.16.2010



On the wings of death, by the hands of doom;
By the darkest light from the darkest moon;
On the wings of life, by the hands of hope;
By the brightest light from the brightest sun.

And vice versa.

I'm ShadeOfLight.
I'm a Dutch lawyer who loves to play the vidya. I'm a Nintendo-fanboy at heart, but I don't feel that I'm blinded by that, at least not very often. I am also currently on the Cblog Recaps team for Thursdays, so if for some voyeuristic reason you want to know more about me, check out my weekly Shadeisms.

I'm obsessed with the Monolith Soft RPGs Xenoblade Chronicles and the Baten Kaitos series. I will not pass up the opportunity to mention them, ever, and I consider myself Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean's biggest fan. Xenoblade Chronicles X also knocked my socks off.



The WiiU is one of my favorite systems of all time, and my favorite games on this system include, but are most certainly not limited to;
New Super Mario Bros. U
Darksiders II
Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
Pikmin 3
Super Mario 3D World
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Mario Kart 8
Hyrule Warriors
Bayonetta 2
Super Smash Bros. WiiU
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
Yoshi's Woolly World
Xenoblade Chronicles X

And on the Nintendo front, let's not forget the 3DS I've had since early 2014! Like, say:
Super Smash Bros. 3DS
The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
Fire Emblem Awakening
Pokemon X
Super Mario 3D Land
Bravely Default
Shin Megami Tensei IV
Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright
Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies
Crimson Shroud
Code of Princess
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
Virtue's Last Reward
Bravely Second
Codename STEAM

Apart from Nintendo, I'm a huge indie game enthousiast. Give me a game like Trine, VVVVVV, Sequence or Recettear, and you've made me a happy camper for sure. You can keep your shooters to yourself.

Favorite indie game round-up:
Trine (+ Trine 2)
Super Meat Boy
The Binding of Isaac
Antichamber
Dungeons of Dredmor
Thomas Was Alone
Mark of the Ninja
VVVVVV
Sequence
Cthulhu Saves the World
Recettear - An Item Shop's Tale
Bastion
To The Moon
Cave Story
Shatter
LIMBO
FLY'N
Dustforce
Orcs Must Die! 2
Primordia
Machinarium
Botanicula
The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom
Transistor
1001 Spikes
The Swapper
Ori and the Blind Forest
Her Story
and many, many more!

Besides gaming itself, I like reading up on gaming-related news on my favorite website in the whole wide world: Destructoid. I love all the people here, and I'm glad that I get to be a part of this. Wouldn't know what to do without you!

And it turns out you guys love me too!
I've had some blogs promoted:
- Because VIDEOGAMES!
- Digital Property: Entering the Third Age
- Better with Age: Batman: Arkham Asylum
- And posted as The Wombat: 2014: I want to make love to you. Seriously.
