With Breath of the Wild being, you know, a pretty OK video game, not to mention a Zelda game with cool character design, it's probably safe to assume that 2017 is going to be full of killer Link and Zelda cosplay. So let's get started on that.
Early in The Legend of Zelda. Breath of the Wild, I discovered a puzzle shrine containing a small maze. Inside that maze was a little ball. The goal, I realised, was to manoeuvre the ball out of the maze and slide it into a nearby funnel.

One wrong move and the ball would fall out, forcing me to start again.
One of the easiest bits of news to miss on Monday’s Gamescom Opening Night Live show was tucked away in an ad for the Epic Games Store. A simple sizzle reel that showcased a number of games exclusive to the controversial digital PC game storefront included an upcoming indie that previously wasn’t in Epic’s roster: Oddworld Soulstorm. Shortly after, Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning posted a message via the Oddworld Twitter account.
