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

You can build an airship in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Okay. Traveling via self-catapulting rock is cool. Inventing super jumps to skip puzzles is cool. Dropping a chicken wing on the ground in below-freezing lands and it turning into a frozen chicken wing is cool. There are a lot of little co...   read
