What Zelda Game Should I Play First?

A question I get asked quite a lot is from those that have somehow never played a Zelda game before. Yes, there are quite a few of you that have, for one reason or another, never indulged in the delights of wielding the Master Sword, exploring the world of Hyrule, or defeating Ganon.

N64 Hori Mini Pad Review – The Ultimate N64 Controller?

Greetings – My name is Lee, and this is my first post on Skirmish Frogs, hopefully the first of many posts you’ll see from me! (Sidenote – Big thanks to Eric for letting me post here). Over at PugHoofGaming, my message is first and foremost: “Keep Gaming Positive”, and that is exactly what you can expect if you head on over to the YouTube channel and subscribe. Every week, I post a new video and most of what I do post is about my main passion – Retrogaming.

I have a great deal of love for gaming hardware, and I love any excuse to talk about my collection of gaming consoles and accessories – Hence this video, taking a look at one of my favourite ever third-party controllers – Hori’s Nintendo 64 Mini Pad.
