A Link to Awesome! Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Review

For me personally A Link Between Worlds had a lot to live up to. It is essentially a sequel to A Link to the Past (despite being a couple of hundreds year further into the timeline) and promised to bring players back into the world of that early SNES game.

EB Expo kindawesome Review

I was recently lucky enough to be sent by kindawesome to the EB expo, in order to get the ‘low down’ as the kids say on the future of gaming.
