E3 2016 – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Even though Nintendo didn’t have a traditional event at E3 this year, it doesn’t mean they didn’t have anything to show. On day one they dedicated 95% of the Nintendo Treehouse stream to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

I decided to watch everything they had to show and I compiled six hours of awesomeness into just seven minutes for your viewing pleasure.

E3 2016 – Breath of the Wild Map

I was catching up on my Nintendo Treehouse earlier because I missed the last hour and a half. It was during the “Beyond the Plateau” video that I noticed more of the map was being shown.

I figured it was a good idea to get some screenshots and try to put it all together. I think this is a pretty accurate representation, even though I’m missing the upper north-west corner.

Considering The Plateau was all that was available in the demo and it was mentioned it’s far too big for the attendees to see it all… That’s a pretty damn big map!

The Adventure is Over: How Working in a Video Game Store Ended It – Part 1

Video games are something I enjoy greatly. Especially when there is an amazing narrative involved. Gameplay is king and nice graphics help too. Being able to immerse one’s self into a world of escapism for an unmetered amount of hours is an amazing thing. But for me, that’s not all there is to video games.

But… Working in a video game store took that away.

The Adventure is Over: How Working in a Video Game Store Ended It – Part 4

Just under two years later, it’s time for the Wii to launch in Australia. The Wii was my last real adventure. It was also a solo adventure. I had moved out from living with Ryan and was now living with my girlfriend in a place of our own. As always, I was very excited by the new console from Nintendo. This would mark the third home console by the big N that I would be buying with my own money on launch day.

My Games of the Year – Part 1

I don’t have the time to take all the games I’ve enjoyed this year, line them up and compare them to one another, weighing up the differences in styles and gameplay, then trying to justify reasons as to why one of them is my most favourite. Heck no. So Instead I’m just writing about all of my favourite games this year and why they are awesome! Some of them I have finished and others I haven’t. Most of them I sucked at. Because I am wanting to be unbiased and don’t want to rank one game better than the other, I used a random generator to determine the order of which to write about.
