‘Breath of the Wild’ is a modern marvel in video game history

Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wind

A Special Report by Agent Parker

During my first weekend playing through “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” I encountered a centaur-looking creature who greeted me with an ice arrow, killing me instantly.

The game’s forgiving autosave function had me respawn outside the area’s gate, and I elected to climb a mountain range to my right to not incur his wrath again. Halfway across the top of the ridge, I discovered a giant cycloptic ogre called a Hinox sleeping near a pond.

Masters of Doom by David Kushner

Sometimes the story is of the game and not just in the game.

Such is the case for my favorite games Wolfenstein 3-D, Doom, Quake, I played them all and I played them a lot.

So I was intrigued when I learned of Masters of Doom by David Kushner about the two Johns; Carmack and Romero, who came together to create these games and more.

A Special Field Report from Agent Waves

I grew up in a family of geeks.

I spent my childhood fighting over who got to be Mario with my three brothers and spending every other Friday at the local comic shop catching up on my weekly’s. So naturally, I always loved every new Nintendo & Sega system put in front of me, and I was smitten with games like Shenmue and Luigi’s Mansion.

Chrono Trigger is one of those classic titles that generate nostalgia and a real sense of reverie amongst gamers. Released back in 1995 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System – it was a critical and commercial success.

I’m not exaggerating when I say few games released in the past 20 years measure up to this RPG masterpiece. Some younger gamers or those unfamiliar with gaming might not understand Chrono Trigger’s significance, but that’s okay.

I’m an old nerd whose wanted to write about this for a while.
