Chris Berrow - Quick mention of something that arrived today. This is Zelda: Links Awakening which is a Switch remake of the Gameboy game from 1993... did you play Zelda on the Gameboy?

Leigh Milner - That's the only game I didn't play.

Chris - This is kind of like Pokemon except that instead of the fights stoping the game and you going into the fight mode like Pokemon did, instead of that it was like real time fights so you'd slash your sword on your character in the world and it would hit the bad guy.

This is a complete remake of that and it's just come out now. I was expecting a lot more from this game than what it costs... it's priced as a full price game so you know 50 or 60 quid. It's an expensive expensive game.

It's quite laggy I was annoyed at how laggy the game was and I thought it should have been better for a rerelease that people were in waiting a long time for. So I've played for about an hour today and I think it should be better.

I did get into it eventually though but at this early stage is getting a 6 out of 10.
