Review of The Official Wind Waker Strategy Guide - Legend of Zelda

The Official Wind Waker Strategy Guide is available through and covers the strategies that Prima has put together over the length of time that the game has been on the market. It is currently available as a paperback book so if you prefer this format, that will be a plus for you.

The book was written by Stephen Stratton and Bryan Stratton. Stephen Stratton has a lot of experience in writing guides for gamers and has also authored the Pokemon X and Y strategy guides, Mass Effect, Lego Star Wars III and many other guides. Bryan Stratton has authored numerous guides as well, including Doom 3, Mist 4, Mirro’s Edge and Super Mario Sunshine.

A giant poster is included in the guide and for people who like using charts in their strategy; this should be both useful and interesting to look at. It has lots of screenshots so you have a clear image to refer to when you face a problem. Lots of details are there to help you with all the side quests in the video game. You get information on items that are hidden all over the 49 islands and strategies on conquering the bosses.

The detailed information provided through dungeon maps, footnotes, etc. may be the book’s strongest point. If you are learning the game and want to improve, but only play occasionally, it will help you. However, if you are a gamer who wants to study something completely before you even start playing, this might not be the book for you. It is designed as more of a troubleshooting guide or a reference that people can use after they have encountered challenges in the game.

Richard Estes Artwork - Photorealistic Photography

Richard Estes is a photo-realistic photographer. This artist is well known for his geometric landscapes and stunning visuals. He is thought of as one of the artists who laid a foundation for the Photo -Realist movement.

Richard Estes is a native New Yorker who makes a habit of focusing on urban landscapes in his artwork. Like Da Vinci and many other artists, he used several different techniques in order to complete a single work of art.
Some of Richard Estes artwork includes:
  • Telephone booths
  • Times Square
  • Salzburg Cathedral
No photo-realistic piece that he does can be referred to as a photograph, painting or print alone. He often uses all three of these techniques in his work. He usually starts off with a photograph of a part of a city and then applies painting techniques and printing techniques to it.
