Well, that's it guys. The end of the world is nearly upon is. Not our world but Hyrule, that is. The embargo for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild previews has ended.
Let's hear what professional journalists have to say about the game. I also hope you like the topic I created. Enjoy!

If your preview hasn't been added to this list please PM me or send me a message/tweet on Twitter.

Note: The REVIEWS for the game will drop next Thursday, March 2 at 3:00 AM PT/6:00 AM ET/11:00 AM GMT/10:00 PM AEDT. Expect another topic made by me then. The OT will be up on either March 2nd or 3rd.

Nope, we communicated with each other and he let me make it since I signed up for it anyway. Sorry for the confusion.

I heared that they need to stay spoiler free so we won't hear much from the story but hopefully someone will say if the game has music in the towns and villages.

Polygons preview mention no story so that might be embargoed.

I agree with this completely. When I'm thinking of BotW I almost forget that's there's going to be a story too!

I feel like I've been spoiled so much already but I can't stop...

Problem for me was that I hated the E3 reveal - a lot - so I had to keep following Zelda news to see if it was the game I wanted to be. And... it was! Eventually.

But now I've fallen into the trap of reading everything about the game I can and I'm worried I know too much.

...I'll just read one or two previews. Yeah... just one or two. Or three. Or four...

I actually don't think reviewers are allowed to talk about the story outside of the tutorial area.

Stay out of threads pertaining to the game is the only safe way to avoid getting spoiled. Black out or stress out.
