“MAGE CAST” episode #008 – Breath of Fresh Air


So a red mage, a ninja, and a coffee guru walk into a podcast… On this episode, a tri-force of mages discuss The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, its place within the context of the franchise, both its 2017 GOTY and controversial status, its unprecedented focus on the princess, its treatment of the open world structure, the place of fans in defining a series by expectations, demanding ingenuity and lateral thinking from the player, weapon durability and survival mechanics, talk of a sequel, and Zelda’s legs.

It’s not what you think.
