Something about E3: The Key To Victory

An open letter to Reverend Anthony Burch

In 2006, a good friend of mine showed me the Destructoid review of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Some douche-nozzle gave it a 4.0. Twilight Princess was my game of the year. This man is obviously insane. To give s...   0
