Video game news round-up: GTA 6, Overwatch League pay and BioWare's corny Anthem maze

"Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is currently a favorite game among many players mostly because it provides them several ways to advance through a level. A writer from Kotaku found another way to solve a difficult puzzle and it involved a little bit of thinking outside the box.

The puzzle involves a maze, a ball, and a funnel to drop the ball into. The player will use the Nintendo Switch controller to tilt the maze and let gravity move the ball it. It seems simple enough but the writer said that one wrong move and the ball will fall out of the maze forcing the player to start all over again.

But, he discovered that by rotating the Nintendo Switch controller 180 degrees the whole maze goes upside down and the ball falls on the ceiling. Since the walls of the maze don't reach the ceiling there's nothing to block the ball from rolling in a straight line right into the funnel, which is what the writer did.

These nifty tricks are what make "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" such a fun game to play and often times players like to start a new game to see if they can find another innovative way to solve a puzzle. The only problem is by starting a new game the old one gets erased.

According to Polygon, once a player decides to start a new game all the files and the progress he made on the old game will be erased, which can be quite a bummer. Every player wants to save his old game for a number of reasons; some for reviewing purposes, others for sentimental value.

Fortunately, there's a simple way to save the old data and still start a new game. Gaming experts say that players should create a new profile account and use that to start a new game and it just so happens that the Nintendo Switch can create up to eight profiles, while the Wii U can create up to 12.

This way the old game won't be deleted and players can come back to it and advance further. At the same time, they can go through "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" again by going through a different path the second time around.
