Who's Up for Some Secret Santa?

Who's Up for Some Secret Santa?

Hey hey TAY folks! We’ve gained quite few new faces this past year, and it’s almost the holiday season.

For the last five years we’ve done an online Secret Santa here at TAY. Some years the number of participants dip and some years they surge. Last year we had 28 people! So. It’s time to see if we should keep the tradition going. Who’s up for some ho-ho-holiday fun?

I collect all things Nintendo (I have over 400 games) and focus most of my efforts on Zelda, Kirby, Splatoon, and (more than anything else) Donkey Kong.

TAY Preview: <i>Splatoon 2 </i>Single Player Fun

Hey there TAY folks! Or should I say TAY squids? Threw together this lovely single player preview of Splatoon 2 yesterday and thought I would share. I’m a bit rusty in the narrating department, so ignore how boring I sound.

Splatoon 2 will be out on July 21st for the Nintendo Switch.
