The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild – A Review

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I wanted to write this review because this Zelda is unlike any other Zelda game I have ever played, and yet it is hard to begin because it is hard to know where to start! But I shall do my best!

Skipping over the hype for the game before I ever played it (I tend to ignore this, I have been burned by this before. “Oh my God, this game/film is amazing”, followed by me after me playing/watching it, “Meh. Was hyped too much”. Hype ruins it for me because I go in expecting greatness but get something subpar afterwards), I first played this game in May of 2017. A friend came to visit and he brought his Switch and copy of Breath of the Wild (and 1-2-Switch, but that’s a story for another day!), and I played it as a “Make the most of it, it will be a while before you own this game” so I kinda took it for granted.

But, 5 short months later, my wife (at the time fiancee) bought me a Switch and Breath of the Wild for my birthday. I played it again, this time as the owner of the game, and with the foresight of someone who would play it for more than a single day. And boy oh boy, did my view of this game change in more ways than one!

Final Fantasy IX – A Review

I know this might be a little late, but 15 years ago I was 10 and blogging/reviews were far from my mind. I was more concerned with ignoring my homework and actually playing this game! What game? Why, Final Fantasy IX, of course!

I am writing this because frankly I still think (as fore mentioned, 15 years later) that Final Fantasy IX is the best Final Fantasy game to date.

I can already hear angry people typing in the comments saying “What?! How can you say that?! Final Fantasy (insert number here, most likely VII) was the definitive Final Fantasy game!!!” and I say to you that yes, Final Fantasy (insert number here, most likely still VII) was fantastic, and I really enjoy that too. Final Fantasy VII, certainly, has been the most successful of the Final Fantasy having spin-off games, anime shows and, hell, even movies made from it! And what a movie it is, Advent Children is amazing! But I still prefer Final Fantasy IX. Why, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you.

2015 – A Review

2015 has been a very interesting year indeed! Lots of things have happened, lots of books have been read, movies and TV watched and places visited. So, let us review!

Personally speaking, there was one big life event that happened in 2015 that I will never forget. In February, on the 14th no less, I got engaged to my girlfriend. I had planned my proposal down to the last detail and, naturally, none of it happened. I didn’t have a ring, and it was somewhere I never expected something like that to happen.
