Blasphemy: I enjoy Breath of the Wild more because it lacks dungeons

In the lead up to the release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I went back and played all of the 3D Zelda titles I hadn’t actually completed: Majora’s Mask, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword. Though I wasn’t a fan of how the games became slower to start with each successive iteration’s expansion of boring tutorials, I enjoyed them all very much.

Using the perfect 10 in video game reviews

An interesting phenomenon occurs when a game, or any form of media really, is awarded a 10/10 score. There’s always a contingent of people that go beyond typical dissenters, haters if you would, ready to spitefully bash any game awarded said 10/10, possibly because they see it as an act of rebellion that will make them cooler in the eyes of their peers, or for some other deeply rooted psychological reason. They’re not the weird ones though, they’re just jerks The weird ones are the people that try to nonchalantly dismiss every 10/10 score because “it’s impossible to have a perfect game.” Continue reading Using the perfect 10 in video game reviews

Game Rankings 2016: Twilight Princess HD

I’m very thankful for this particular HD remaster, because my first experience with The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was a rough one.  The better part of a decade ago, I had quit the game at the first dungeon. Now, I’ve returned to this incarnation of Hyrule and emerged victorious. Continue reading Game Rankings 2016: Twilight Princess HD
