Captain Nintendo Dude is waiting in line for a MONTH for the Switch

For those of you who don’t know Captain Nintendo Dude (CND), he is a YouTuber who makes content around Nintendo and Nintendo games. He’s an all-around pleasant dude who makes quality content that he is legitimately passionate about. I just discovered his channel about a month ago, so I had no idea what he is capable of when it comes to his beloved Nintendo….until now.

That’s right, this crazy Mofo (in the most endearing way possible) is waiting outside the Nintendo Store in New York for the launch of the Nintendo Switch. At eye-level that’s not too crazy. I once waited overnight for the Wii, so I get it. But the Switch doesn’t come out until March 3. For those of you reading this in the future, that’s one month away from the date this blog was posted. Kind of crazy, but I’m not going to hate on this level of passion.

Oh, and he’s not alone. Read the rest of this entry

First Look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Nintendo at E3

With all the new hardware being thrown around at E3 this year, it’s easy to say Nintendo’s presentation was a little dissapointing.

Nintendo, you pulled the NX rug right out from underneath us, deprived us of a new handheld console and then you do something like giving us gameplay footage and a trailer for the brand new Zelda game….

To be fair, they also gave us a handful of new Pokemon that will be on Sun and Moon, but ZELDA MAN, ZELDA!

First Impressions

Visuals

When I first saw the trailer (embedded above), I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Wind Waker-esque cell shaded graphics were being brought back into the fold. Not that this game is a reproduction of The Wind Waker, far from it, but it’s cool to see this hybrid of visuals that make up Breath of the Wild.

Landscape

People are calling this an “open-world” Zelda game, which is confusing to me. I recall my days streaking across Hyrule field with Epona, wasn’t this open-world? Sailing across the open seas in my tiny wooden boat, wasn’t this open-world? Hell, side scrolling through landscapes and throwing my sword around, wasn’t this open-world? The landscapes in Breath of the Wild are vast. They seem to be truly grande than any installment previous, but everyone being caught on this “open-world” tagline needs to chill. More RPG-like? Yeah sure. Am I missing something on this?

The Jump Button

I Don’t like it. There, I said it.

Style

Style is than visuals in that I am solely talking about Link’s clothes when I talk about “Style”. My verdict…I like it. Kind of tribe-chic.

Bottom Line

This is a Zelda game, people. No matter what tiny little things we can nitpick about it, even a JUMP button, it’s still the next installment in one of the greatest video game franchises ever. I’m going to buy it, you’re going to buy it, what a time to be alive!
