Breath of the Wild introduced a bunch of really unique and fun weapons for Link to wield during his adventure. These ranged from heavy two-handed behemoths like the Stone Smasher and Boulder Breaker, to elegant and flashy weapons like the Moonlight Scimitar or Eightfold Blade.

While Mipha is eventually killed by Waterblight Ganon, she lives on in the memory of her charismatic brother Sidon and the rest of the Zora tribe….

The entire song has a sadness that perfectly fits the dark world of Termina. There is a beauty in the song, but the…

My 1.0 version, gold cart still sits proudly on my gaming shelf, and the memories live forever. Some of my fondest memories came from the expertly-composed soundtrack from the legend, Koji Kondo. Clearly, I wasn’t the only one with these memories, and in 2017, a Kickstarter campaign was launched for Hero of Time, an…
