Archived Stream: Hyrule Warriors/Virtual Console Doubleheader

Archived Stream: Hyrule Warriors/Virtual Console Doubleheader

Kat plays Hyrule Warriors, then jumps into Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and Ninja Gaiden.

For today's stream, I'll be taking a break from Destiny and picking up the game that everyone is actually talking about: Hyrule Warriors.

Okay, that might be overstating things a bit, but it's still surprising to see the amount of positive buzz Hyrule Warriors has been able to garner given that it's same sort of Dynasty Warriors spinoff that Tecmo Koei has been making for almost a decade now. Branding is important, I guess!

Anyway, if you're as skeptical as I am, this is your chance to see what Hyrule Warriors is all about. Unfortunately, I'm only able to stream it for about 30 minutes, so I'll be using the back half to dive into my Virtual Console library to play the game of your choice. Retro games are always fun, after all!

If you're looking for more Hyrule Warriors coverage, you can read Jeremy's review, which went up yesterday.

The stream official starts at 4pm PST/7pm EST. Please feel free to drop by and say hello! And as always, if you like our streams, please follow our channel. You can find archived streams at our Youtube channel.

We stream every Tuesday and Thursday, so set aside some time on those days and come watch us play video games.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
