The Legend of Zelda – Breath of the Wild

I’m a bit late to the party but The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an amazing game. I bought a Nintendo Switch just so I can play this game (I skipped the Wii U for various reasons). After playing it for 40 hours with so much still to do and enjoy, I’m pretty certain that this is one of the best games ever made, if not the best.

I love that once you’ve cleared the first area you’re basically free to explore and do whatever you want. I love that there are various ways of solving puzzles in the game. I love the variety of terrains, characters, weapons, and more.

The art style is wonderful – it’s not hyper realistic but I think in 10-20 years time it won’t look dated like some other games do.

The game isn’t perfect but there isn’t a great deal to complain about. So far I’ve beaten three Divine Beasts and reclaimed the Master Sword, and have done the first part of Trial of the Sword. I have enjoyed the game immensely and cannot wait to play the rest of it!

New year, new blog

I don’t really have the time to update this blog at the moment, but partly I also don’t have much to write about – I can’t afford the latest phones etc. so I’m stuck talking about my older devices (although I am considering an upgrade to either a Pixel 2 or a Galaxy S8). Personally, I don’t find Android as exciting any more – there haven’t been any major changes recently, it’s more a case of ironing out flaws. It’s still the best mobile OS as far as I can tell, but I don’t have much to say about it.

So I think I am going to change the blog to cover games as well as Android. After sitting out the PS4/Xbox One era, I’ve finally entered the current generation with a Nintendo Switch. So far I am loving it and Zelda is such a wonderful experience, I’m looking forward to trying out other games. So in the coming weeks I’m going to update the blog (and find a new theme as well!) to include my thoughts about games. It will also be a handy place for me to keep my completed games list. I’ve tried maintaining lists on other sites but they always seem to shut down or not get updated.
