Xbox Adaptive Controller used to help a girl with disabilities play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

A better way to play

The Xbox Adaptive Controller allows people with all sorts of disabilities to enjoy games with comfort and ease. The controller itself allows for easier play, but it can also be built onto in order to create custom setups. That's exactly what Rory Steel has done in the video above.

Rory built out a special arcade-style board that connects with the Xbox Adaptive Controller to allow Ava, a girl with disabilities, to enjoy her favorite games. Turns out she's a big fan of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and now she can play it easier than ever!

Thanks to Neverunplaying and Dondom95 for the heads up!

Nintendo Minute - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: 20 Challenges in 20 Minutes

Got a minute?

Nintendo Minute is never a minute! Happy New Year everyone. We’re so excited to be back with the first Nintendo Minute video of 2020. We thought it would be fun to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and see if we can complete 20 challenges in the game in 20 minutes. We didn’t want to fail at the first video of the year so we tried really hard. How do you think we did? As always, thanks so much for watching. We’re so excited for this year! Can’t wait to share it all with you.

Modding the Ring Fit Adventure Ring-Con to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Get in shape with Link!

Wouldn't it be fun if you could use the Ring Fit Adventure Ring-Con with other games? While Nintendo doesn't seem too keen on that, modder Super Louis 64 managed to scrape together his own solution. He's cooked up a mod that lets him use the Ring-Con to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and the results are pretty interesting!

New Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time any% speedrun record sits at 12:59

How long will this record last?

Somehow, speedrunners continue to chip away at the any% speedrun time for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. A new record has been set by Lozoots, who managed to wrap the game up in just 12:59. This absolutely shattered the previous record, which clocked in at 16 minutes 58 second, 366 milliseconds. This new record was set by using a trick that allows players to warp directly into the game’s credits.

This may be the flashiest takedown of a Lynel in Zelda: Breath of the Wild yet

How is this even possible?!

I don't know how, but people are still finding some amazing new ways to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Japanese player Peco has put together a clip showcasing his absolutely insane battle with a Lynel, and the footage is still blowing my mind. This looks like a whole new way of fighting in Breath of the Wild, and it requires all sorts of super-quick inputs and major planning. The end result is unlike anything I've seen so far!

Creator of Tetris says he loves Switch, names Zelda: Breath of the Wild as one of his favorites, calls Tetris 99 'absolutely great'

The man has excellent taste!

Few people have had the same impact on gaming as Alexey Pajitnov, the creator of Tetris. He managed to create was is essentially the perfect puzzle game. Tetris was loved from the first day it came onto the scene, and the continued sequels and spin-offs to this day continue to show just how popular Tetris is.

One of the more recent titles with the Tetris name is Tetris 99, the Tetris take on the battle royale experience. What does Pajitnov have to say about it? The gang at USGamer asked the man himself to find out.

"Tetris 99 is absolutely a great title. Basically, I think the one-player version of Tetris has been more or less stabilized over the years. That's good, and we're just adjusting the game to new user interfaces. But for two-player modes and serious competition, there are several challenges to overcome. I really want Tetris to establish itself as an esport. We're getting there very slowly but surely."

Turns out Pajitnov is a fan of the Switch in general. When asked about Switch, Pajitnov responded with, "I love Switch. They [Nintendo] did a great job on it." He even went so far to name The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as one of his favorite Switch games, saying that he has to fight to play the game, as his son keeps stealing the Switch from him!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild fan-made animation is a wonderful tribute to the game


Would you love to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild again, but you don't have the time to do it? Watching this animation from Lee Jumi and Seon Seungyeon should more than do the trick, as it really encapsulates what the experience is all about. It's easy to tell a ton of work went into this, and a love for the source material is woven through. This really made me want to jump back into the game, and even had me tearing up a bit. I'd say that's two signs of this being a fantastic tribute!

Modder adds The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask's moon to Pokemon Sword and Shield

Now we need the sun from Super Mario Bros. 3

Modders love to take games and make the impossible possible, and now they've turned their focus towards the latest entry in the Pokemon franchise.

Pokemon Sword and Shield is already filled with all kinds of fantastic, massive, and powerful creatures, but one modder wanted to bring in some backup from another game. As you can see above, this mod allows you to have the Majora's Mask moon as a playable Pokemon in the game. When you throw this sucker into Gigantamax form, things really get impressive!
