The Professional Gamer - March 6, 2017

Hello readers! Welcome to Nintendo Switch launch weekend. I'm still waiting for my console to arrive, fingers crossed that it actually does. There was a bit of a mix up with our credit card to make the payment with, so, not sure that its going to go through. In light of that, we purchased a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Wii U. We are also horribly impatient people and could not wait a few more days to receive our Switch. Instead, Crystal has spent most of the day playing, and I've been watching her. The game is very big. Remarkably big. And the designers have done a very good job at rewarding players for exploring.

I haven't really done much else this week. I've had a long week, with a trip up to Badlands National Park and having to dedicate a lot of time to reading scientific papers in preparation for preparing a conference paper. That's all for now. Have a great week and game on!
