The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
In this episode:
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is finally out, and Beej and
Void are playing (and loving) it. Void has it on the Switch, and
Beej grabbed it on Wii U. We discuss the differences in the
versions and how each piece of hardware handles the game (hint:
they’re pretty much the same).
discuss how Breath of the Wild treats armor and weapons differently
than other games in the series, making it much more like a

Zelda, so that’s taken priority.

all because the system is amazing
