    Turns out I’ve been pronouncing Gerudo incorrectly for the past 20 years.

      I mean, I’m not going to claim I have it exactly right here either. When we were growing up, my siblings and I always said it as (jer-OO-doh), but it’s a made up word that the game only ever presents in text format, and ended up giving me more trouble in prep than you’d think. The pronunciation I settled on basically assumed Japanese roots, which I think is pretty reasonable? “Geruto” is a word for money in Japanese, but I have no idea if that’s intentional or not.

      Anyway, now I’ve tipped my hand on just how much I actually think about these complete joke shows. Uh oh.

        No shame in that. The amount of time I’ve spent on pondering the lore of the Mass Effect and Star Wars universes is… more than I’d like to admit.
