The Legend of E3: Booth of the Wild

In Gaming News by Miroku

It started like any other convention day- wake up at 6, shower, eat breakfast, grab a coffee and hit the road. The traffic gods smiled upon me this glorious day, and me, the optimist, began to foolishly think that I might be able to actually try Nintendo’s only demo at this year’s E3- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
