This fight between a Guardian and a Stone Talus is one of the best Zelda: Breath of the Wild videos yet

One of the reasons I love Breath of the Wild so much is because of how open it truly is. No I don't mean in a cookie cutter "open world" kind of way, but a truly freeing experience where you can get lost in exploration for hours on end...   read
