Lightgun Galaxy's Josh Wirtanen writes: "In many ways, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a colossal step forward for the Zelda franchise. Nintendo showed a surprising willingness to dismantle the classic Zelda formula (which actually started with A Link to the Past) and rebuild it from scratch.

Mass Effect Andromeda may get several things right, its writing however is unfortunately not one of them. Oliver Rebbeck at GoombaStomp runs through several of the major problems with the games writing and characterisation.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a great game, and a stellar Zelda title. With an amazing focus on adventure and exploration, Breath of the Wild is a fantastic journey, despite some noticeable hiccups.

Basically put, should you be playing them...or ignoring them?"

PS4 Pro owners are treated to a few cool extras with Mass Effect Andromeda. This includes a resolution boost to 1800p (via checkerboarding), higher quality ambient occlusion, the removal of screen-tear, and improved depth of field. Next to a PC running at a true native 4K, PS4 Pro's image quality holds up very well here - but it does miss out on the PC's max settings such as high quality tessellation.
