The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Review

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the WildWhen we ask gamers what their favourite game of all time is, we can be pretty confident that they will choose one title from a select few games that most gamers agree are the best in the business. Perhaps it’s Red Dead Redemption or Goldeneye. Maybe it’s Final Fantasy 7 or Ocarina of Time? Well it might be time to revise that pool of “best games ever” because The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is finally with us after years of waiting and it’s quickly become my favourite game of all time, surpassing even Red Dead Redemption. Now, I haven’t played every Legend of Zelda game nor am I a massive fan but it’s a series I’ve enjoyed in the past and I love the passion that fans have for it. The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild has been in development for a long time and people have been excited for it since we caught our first glimpse of it years ago at E3.

A rant about the state of digital stores

For years now Steam has been top dog when it comes to gaming platforms and in particular its store had praise heaped upon it. Self proclaimed citizens of the “master race” would look down upon mere console mortals and boast about the superiority of the service and its store front.
