It feels as though time is rushing forward in a mad dash towards spring. For me that means trying to sidestep as much southern U.S. pollen as possible while temperatures swing wildly towards freezing one day and summer temperatures the next, but for you that may mean getting past midterms, going on spring break, or just getting through another month of the daily grind. The march of time also brings us closer daily to the highly-anticipated release of Tears of the Kingdom. Odds are if you’re reading this, you’d agree that the upcoming Zelda title is one of (if not THE) most exciting things to look forward to in 2023. When there’s something this thrilling to anticipate, there are many ways to fill up the time while waiting, including setting some goals or making sure you have all your ducks in a row before it’s gametime.

So, what’s on your pre-Tears of the Kingdom to-do list?

I’ve heard from some who have vowed to replay or even 100% Breath of the Wild in the lead-up to Tears of the Kingdom. I certainly look up to those who have been able to follow through on these goals, but replaying the previous title has never quite fit into my schedule while also trying to experience and write about other games both within and outside of the Zelda series. Things will be pretty busy for me in other ways during the next couple of months so my goals aren’t lofty, but I am hoping to at least wrap up a few of the games I’m currently working on (including Tunic) before getting lost in Tears of the Kingdom when it comes out.

What about you? Do you have some more practical things you’re trying to get out of the way so you can enjoy the game to its fullest? Do you have a certain game or set of games you plan on playing or replaying before May 12? What boxes do you just have to check off before you get your hands on the next Zelda title? Let us know down in the comments below!
