Combat Sucks In Zelda Breath Of The Wild

The biggest problem for me in breath of the wild is the combat, which is one of the most fundamental parts of the game - depending on how you play. I'll start with the most accepted thing before going into the things that are probably more specific to me. The enemy variety is absolutely abysmal. … Continue reading Combat Sucks In Zelda Breath Of The Wild

My Problem With Open World Maps In RPG’S

Open world maps tend to be something well respected and admired in fantasy games, particularly RPG’s and JRPG’s.

It gives the players a better sense of freedom and exploration to discover things … Continue reading My Problem With Open World Maps In RPG’S

How To Make A Puzzle Game Based Around Just One puzzle – King’s Quest (part 6)

Previously I looked at the first 45 minutes of chapter 4 and I will now continue to explain how the game becomes one massive, boring, ice puzzle.

The answer is yes however … Continue reading How To Make A Puzzle Game Based Around Just One puzzle – King’s Quest (part 6)

How You Shouldn’t Deliver Exposition– King’s Quest (part 5)

In my series of rant posts against this game I’ve noticed one thing that seems prevalent in most of them.

Initially I picked up this game because the game grumps were playing it and I thought it looked cool.
