Before jumping into Tears of the Kingdom next week, take a look back at the rare moment when the indie gaming world came to Hyrule.

First off, that Splatoon 3 deal with the bundled Nintendo Switch Online subscription is still available. Grab it and jump into this weekend's Zelda-themed Splatfest. If that's not enough, take a look at Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda, the indie effort from Brace Yourself Games that has taken its rhythmic dungeon crawler and placed it in Hyrule. The game is not only on sale, but Nintendo Switch Online members can try it out for free.

Elsewhere, Golden Week sales are still happening for one more week on PlayStation and Xbox. Pick up those deals and also check out Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, if you haven't already.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
