Beautiful OP. I'd like to share a little parody I wrote to pass the time...

’Twas the Night before Switchmas, when all through the house,
The excitement was ardent, not easy to douse.
I’d look out the window, and dash down the stairs,
In hopes that the UPS truck would be there.

My consoles were nestled all snug in their place,
And nary a cartridge was out of its case.
Most folks are asleep, but I’m still wide awake,
Non-gamers, these feelings are hard to relate!

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Thank goodness the new Zelda’s not a rehash!

I blurted ‘thank you’ to the UPS driver,
And ran back inside such that neighbors nearby were
Rattled and flustered; what could cause such commotion?
Isn’t Daniel too old for such childlike emotion?

Yes, I may be too old, but some things never change.
And even though many would find this quite strange,
This new game from Nintendo, the best Zelda ever,
Is exactly why gaming’s my passion forever.

Time to don my green tunic, restore peace to Hyrule,
(It’s not easy to do this AND be in med school).
My sword is unsheathed; on my shoulder, my crossbow,
Now the long wait begins; that is, ‘till tomorrow…

Welp, some of the formatting is broken... let's hope it looks okay on everyone else's screen, if not I'll fix!

Had my copy for about 4 hours, its such a beautiful game. I can't get past the occasional FPS drop on the Wii U. Its phenomenal the world they've created.

This is it. The first Zelda game I'll play on launch.

I hope my Switch arrives before the end of next week (I live in Brazil so who knows...)

And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?

It's dangerous to go alone. Take GAF.

Great, great work OP. Thanks. The memory section is fantastic of you.
