Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Preview

In case you haven’t been keeping up, I love the Legend of Zelda series. However, even a long-time fan such as myself can admit that the games have grown increasingly stale over the years. With a formula that has largely unchanged since the 90s, there has been a growing sense of frustration among fans. True, there has seldom been a bad entry in the series, but how many times does Nintendo expect us to wander Hyrule, fight our way through a fire, water, and forest temple before wrestling control of the land from the Ganondorf.

Trent’s Games of 2016

So 2015 was a heck of a year, right? Another Batman game made me feel like a billionaire brood-monster all over again, for the final and most epic time.
