Review in Progress Pt 2: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U)

When I last left off, I was lost somewhere along the northeastern coast of Hyrule. I had yet to experience one of the game’s dungeons, didn’t have a horse in the stables, and hadn’t even figured out how to cook yet. 20 hou...   read
