After a short break, I picked XC2 back up. Definitely in chapter 2 is where the game starts to reveal itself, in contrast to the heavy tutorial based first chapter. The second chapter still has quite a lot of helpful hints and tips, but to be honest I’m pretty much ignoring them. I know everyone gets mad when a blogger or streamer skips the tutorial and has no idea how to play the game but honestly I feel like I’m not having any trouble despite not really having any idea what I’m doing.
So a whopping 14 months after its release, I finally downloaded Mario Run onto my phone. Initially, I stayed as far away from it as possible thinking that any mobile app with “run” in the title is just going to be Temple Run with a different skin. It’s so easy today to slap on a license to a terrible game, make a ton of money off of the initial frenzy, and then forget it ever happened (*cough* literally all the Harry Potter games *cough*).
However, that’s not at all the case with Mario Run.
My $300 Zelda machine is no longer just that! I picked up Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on a whim, firstly because it looked like Anime: The Video Game and secondly there is a side quest in BOTW that references Xenoblade, so I thought I would check it out. Here are my thoughts and first impressions.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be hitting the one-year anniversary of it’s release date in less than two weeks and I feel like I’m still reading about new discoveries in the game everyday. And even so, there is still tons for players to discover all on their own.
After buying my $300 Zelda machine, I recently finished Breath of the Wild and it was majorly worth it.
