NieR: Automata surpasses 300,000 sales in Japan

This long distance parry in Zelda: Breath of the Wild is amazing

GirKart64's video shows just how far you can push the limits of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Attempting to set a record for farthest parry, they walk all the way up a mountain, get in clear view of a Guardian, and let it rip. It's not so much...   read

This near minute long wipeout in Zelda: Breath of the Wild is worth your time
