Do you have a Switch? I don’t have a Switch. Let’s try to contain our tears as we watch The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild together.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is out now, and I do not have it, nor is there any possibility I will acquire it in the near future.
As I see it, at this stage I feel I have three options. One, I can quietly pretend rave reviews for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are totally wrong, and that all my game journo friends are talking shit out of weird old Nintendo nostalgia. Two, I can lie on the ground and throw a massive tantrum until I pass out and can therefore no longer emotions such as envy and dissatisfaction with my lot.
Three, I can watch other people play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and live vicariously through them. Here’s Arekkz to the rescue on that front, with the first 90 minutes of the critically acclaimed RPG one of my pals has said he would leave his wife over, if necessary.
If you, like me, do not have a Switch or even a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Wii U (where it is also available), join me in taking some deep, calming breaths and enjoying this video. It doesn’t matter that it is beautiful and just out of reach. Many things are. Do not allow serenity to be numbered among them.
