    When Breath of the Wild came out I couldn’t have been more excited. I was on Spring Break so I sunk in at least 6 hours of game play a day for two weeks straight. But then, I “beat” the story and I lost the motivation to play. I’ve... More

    This week’s CWC is absolutely perfect for me – I spent my entire two-week spring break home sick with what turned out to be bronchitis. I still may be fighting off a cough, but at least being sick gave me time to game my heart out. Unless... More

    So, I’m a pretty big Zelda fan but I was pretty cautious about Breath of the Wild. I really love linear storytelling and the idea of an open world felt daunting. I also wasn’t sold on breakable weapons and did I mention how much a completely... More

    As I anxiously wait for March 3rd, I’ve been thinking a lot of Zelda games in general. So, I figured why not rank all of the previous title from worst to best – or more aptly, from my least favorite to my favorite. This list is completely... More
