The Legend of Zelda; Breath of the Wild


Today, I’m doing something a little different from usual. If you read my “About Me” post, you would know that I love video games. In particular, the “Legend of Zelda” franchise. I’m going to do a game review on “The Legend of Zelda; Breath of The Wild”, the newest and most critically acclaimed addition to this already phenomenal series. Before I start, I just want to say that


it is a completely open-air game, with MASSIVE exploring space, (divided into regions) 76 side quests in total and dozens upon dozens of items, weapons and creatures. There are also many mini games, little easter eggs, (not literal easter eggs; little fun surprises and helpful collectibles.)

Basically, you start the game with your memories gone, with only a strange, woman’s voice to guide you. Later, you find out that the kingdom of Hyrule is in grave danger. A beast named Calamity Ganon has destroyed Hyrule, turning it into a desolate land of monsters and ruin. Few villages and towns have survived, and the princess, Zelda, is the only one keeping Calamity Ganon from destroying Hyrule completely. Your ultimate task is to defeat Calamity Ganon and aid Princess Zelda before that happens.

Here is one of my own screenshots in the middle of in-game play, on my own Nintendo Switch at home.

What I love about this game is that is is completely open-ended. Don’t feel like continuing the storyline for a while? No prob. Explore the vast regions of Hyrule, meet new people, get stronger, and spend as much time as you like doing just that. Also, it is not a short game. You will not finish it in a week. You will get plenty of enjoyable play time out of it, and by plenty, I REALLY mean it.

For now, I hope you enjoyed my game review, maybe later I will write a little more on the subject. But for now, that’s it! I highly recommend this game, but a thing to note is that this game is currently only available on the Nintendo Switch or the WiiU. However, they have discontinued making the WiiU, so it is only available on the WiiU if you already have the gaming system.

Anyway, have a great day!

5 Health Myths Proven Untrue

Have your parents ever told you some sort of health myth, or maybe you heard one online or at school? Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but not all are true. Here are 5 health myths that are widely known, but are debunked by science!

1.) Sitting too close to the television is bad for your eyes.

Nope! With some models of very old tv’s that produce X-Rays, maybe, but with newer technology, only some eye fatigue.

2.) Gum stays in your system for seven years if you swallow it.

Also nope! Unless you swallow a whole bunch at once, it digests just the same as any other solid food.

3.) Carrots improve your vision.

Well, carrots are healthy, but studies show they don’t improve eyesight.

4.) Being cold will give you a cold.

No matter what anyone may have told you about this one, you are actually more likely to get sick indoors where germs are more easily passed.

5.) Cracking joints causes arthritis.

Cracking joints may annoy people around you, but scientists have found no reason to believe cracking your knuckles increases your chance of arthritis.

There are 5 common heath myths proven untrue by scientists! If you want to see a few more, here are a couple sources. Have a great day!

Robots Are Here!

Did you know robots have actually been invented? Well, they have! With this type of robot, you could see anywhere without leaving your bed.

This new robot, (invented last year) called the Double, is a phone or tablet on an adjustable stand that’s mounted on motorized wheels. All you need to do is make a video call to the bot from your own phone or tablet, and once you’re connected, the Double will stream its live video surroundings to you. Your own face will pop up on the tablet attached to the Double, and you can move the Double around as well as interact with others around you!

All you need to do is tell the Double to go to the movies or the zoo, you can see everything there live without ever leaving your room! To learn more about the Double, click here. What do you think it would be like to learn from home this way? Or maybe what it would be like to have a Double in the classroom?

Have a great day!
