Sorry guys, but it’s just timp and Axeil this t— wait! Did you hear that? It seems that they were able to access Hurfydurfy’s thoughts and comments from the fu-u-u-ture! Lucky that he’s here to help timp and Axeil discuss the first round of the Go Mode Podcast: Mentor Tournament’s brackets, Speed Gaming Live 2019, and even some multiworld thoughts via a Fetch Question. FEATURE: The gang tries to wrap their heads around Hints in aLttPR, including their history, how they get made, and help to avoid some common hint interpretation mistakes.

Go Mode is brought to you by timp, Axeil, & Hurfydurfy, members of the aLttP Randomizer community at large. Every other week, Go Mode will feature two things: Randomizer News, and Randomizer Walkthroughs.

  • News could include updates on new versions of the logic, tournament recaps and predictions, interviews, discussion, debate, and anything else that counts as a “current event” in the aLttP Rando community.
  • Randomizer Walkthroughs may include breakdowns of dungeon logic, tips for defeating bosses, and even more abstract concepts like item gambling or rupee farming.

We also welcome listener questions! Use the contact form on this page or email us at email@gomodepodcast.com to connect with us.

Available on iTunes and Stitcher!
