You’ve already seen a Guardian and a Stone Talus battle it out in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. What happens when the same kind of Guardian enemy is pushed all the way into the desert to fight another mini-boss? Dorkly writer Tristan Cooper did just that this past weekend, and shared the results on Twitter with a video.

Sonic Boom wasn’t always imagined as a Wii U game. During early development, it started out as Sonic Synergy, and was different from the final product in quite a few ways.

Sonic Stadium managed to obtain an extended version of a Sonic Synergy trailer that surfaced this week. Different designs for Eggman, improved visuals, and more are present in the video. Have a look at it below.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has very few restrictions. Even in the opening section, you have a huge area to explore – that being The Great Plateau.

The only limitation is that you need to complete a few tasks before leaving The Great Plateau. Once that’s done, you’ll be given Link’s trusty paraglider. It’s then that you’re free to leave and explore Hyrule to its fullest.
