Yeah and the graphics are just fucking ugly. They're apparently going for a "comic book" style, but it just looks crap. Also the graphics are the same on the Wii U and Switch, I don't think there's any differences between the versions, so if you're getting a switch for Zelda, save yourself some money and just get it on Wii U.

This makes the most sense. What sort of GPU size are we talking here? Core number on that too?

>The dock is just a plastic shell with an HDMI out.

That is EXTREMELY disappointing but then again wad ya spect. Granted a separate more powerful GPU or even one that worked in tandem would be nice.
I don't feel like that would be asking a lot as PCs can do that willy nilly and we aren't even all the same specs like consoles are.

It's good. Let's put the aside the obvious from the technical limitations the Wii U has, because the Switch version is only a straight port and a lazy one with minor changes at that. All that being said, it is fucking good and its highly recommended It plays like Zelda (sorta) but its not at the same time. And its the the first time in the Nintendo franchise they got of their comfort zone and did something else. I am amaze how fucking good this turn out really. I honestly though it was going to be some gimmick sandbox, but in the end it turn out something they did within their own right and made their mark.

is it that strange to ask for ANYTHING that uses the abilities within 5 hours? cus so far it's been literally 0

even with fast two handed weapons they're useless. i'm not saying I can't adjust playstyles I'm saying it isn't fun/feasible
>map too big, needs more waypoints and icons and fast travel to hold my hand
apparently asking for waypoints that allow you to get where you want to go without spending 15 minutes jumping over pointless mountains is hand holding. do you honestly enjoy spending 5-15 minutes climbing the same mountain every single time you wanna get to some point?
>why do I have to craft health items and stop taking damage instead of being invincible?
christ it's not being invincible, it's just there's no point to the crafting. they drop the items and you could just use them but instead they have you spend time "crafting" them (read: dropping them in a pot in a town). it doesn't add any challenge or anything interesting it's just a time sink that you're forced to do every time you want to heal
>doesn't look as good as witcher 3 on my handheld xbox that doesn't exist, fuckin' gay

I'm enjoying this game thoroughly. No hand holding just straight into the game. It has that way where it lays things out for you but doesn't do the thinking for you with dialogue, that way you still feel smart when you figure it out.

I'm also playing this on the Switch in portable mode. There are times that I feel this game would look better on a bigger screen but other times the game is so crisp and colorful that it truly pops on the 720p screen regardless. Also using the joycons unhooked is fantastic, truly a comfy bed mode.

I'm still trucking through honestly my main gripe is that there is nothing new. For a 10/10 game I'd expect some groundbreaking/innovative mechanics but there are none. I'm struggling to find a single component that you couldn't mod into Skyrim

Like this game is literally a Skyrim mod to look like Zelda, nothing is innovative

This. A lot of people are complaining but at the end of the day this game is going to hold up better 20 years down the line than it's competition. Hate them or love them that's something Nintendo has always excelled at.

I haven't played the game yet but these framerate dips you guys talk about (outside the opening area). Is it really THAT much worse than similar games. It's disappointing ya but not unexpected IMO. Also, I know there's more to Zelda than combat but how is said combat? Outside of Dragons Dogma (if you can even count that one) open world fantasy games combat are generally poop. That was the main reason I was excited for open world Zelda.

>Somewhat realistic looking grass, trees and flowers will look like grass, trees and flowers because they're grass, trees and flowers.
But they don't really look like grass, trees, and flowers. The trees do, but very often (in all those games - 7 Days, Skyrim, and TW3) grass and bushes are very obviously a few 2D models rotated sideways over each other.

It just doesn't seem like TW3 graphics compares to Just Cause 3 or Uncharted graphics, which is fine, since it has much better writing and more game content than those. But idk why people are constantly salivating over the graphics, they really don't seem like anything special to me, at least on PS4 compared to other PS4 games.

I'm comparing it to other games with "somewhat realistic" plants. Most games these days go for realism, only PS4 game I can think of that really didn't bother and just went with its own retro scifi style is NMS.

"Graphics" aren't just a simple function of texture resolution and model detail. The sky boxes and sunsets, the realistic way wind effects grass and bushes and trees... I dunno, maybe these things fall more into "atmosphere", but I honestly appreciated the visuals of TW3 way more than Just Cause 3 or Uncharted 4. Just Cause 3 was pretty, but overall very samey and low on atmosphere. Uncharted 4 is better and damn those textures and lighting effects look good, but they didn't work towards an aesthetic that I found very compelling, and every level is always just one time of day. In TW3, the same alley or swamp or hillside or bay has a totally different feel depending on the time of day and weather, and that keeps even revisiting the same areas feeling fresh. A day/night and dynamic weather system as good as in TW3 makes the world feel truly alive. Even though the actual nuts and bolts of the graphics weren't necessarily incredible, the way they're used in combination creates something I found incredibly powerful

it's the worst zelda game in the way every zelda game is the worst when it came out. though wind waker got the worst of that. there was some initial contrarian shit with skyward sword and twilight princess but nobody bitched about them as much as Wind Waker. the art style and to a lesser extent the sailing drove people up the fucking wall. and shortly after it's considered one of the best games ever made.

It really sucks that Nintendo went the route of shitty ass graphics. They have such amazing games, but the graphics are always complete ass. Like wtf? Yeah, at least Nintendo actually has good games, but why can't they just have decent graphics to go along with it? They would do better than xbone and poopstation put together.

Skyrim's art direction looks like shit compared to BOTW. Even using the Special Edition as comparison, BOTW is a far better looking game. You can't tell the difference between graphics and aesthetics because you're fucking dumb. The fact that you mention Zelda and Fallout 4 in the same sentence seals it.

I’m loving everything in it and last night I had to get like twelve hours of sleep to compensate for the obsessive playing. I’ve kinda followed the main story up to the “first” (or nearest) of the main objectives, and I’m at a point where I have to steal something from a terrible beast and I’m suffering a lot from it. It killed me mercilessly in the first try, and just now it almost got me and I barely made an escape. I’ve also done some of the sidequests, and I’ve noticed if you talk to everyone (or search every npc with a sidequest) there are just TONS of them opening in your log.

I think I’ll explore some more, trying to get to more towers and shrines, and also get some bugs for a stealth elixir.

Also, I have a blue horse, and a blue Zora armor, is that amazing or what?

I haven’t been there, but I think I know what that thing might be. It’s way far to the northwest, and who knows what dangers there might be, but if you manage to get there, you’ll see what that huge thing is for yourself.

This game is fucking incredible. I really feel sorry for people who don't have a system to play it on. They literally fixed everything that was wrong with Zelda. It does not hold your hand and tell you what to do, and exploring can actually get you some useful items instead of worthless hearts and rupees like in previous games. And there's some actual challenge here-- I've died several times, thank God. This feels like the game that the original Legend of Zelda wanted to be but couldn't because of hardware restrictions. I really did not believe the 10/10 "best game ever" reviews because critics always rate Zelda highly, even though Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword were kind of shit and didn't deserve it... yet I think those scores might be justified for this game. I can't say yet whether it's the best Zelda game ever made, but from what I've played so far, that seems totally plausible. At the very least, it makes other open world games look like shit with it's interactivity and traversal options. It's a big physics based playground where you can climb almost anything and makes games like Skyrim look static and stiff. If you can play this game you need to buy it now, because I guarantee it's better than whatever other shit you are playing. I don't even know what to say to the people complaining about its graphics, other than that you are fucking stupid and you should go play your shitty eye candy games. People are going to be talking about this game for years.

I got the Wii U version, because I could not get a Switch but I wold the Special Edition switch version when I decided to get it six months from now.

I would recommend to ge the Wii U version if you are planning to get switch 6 to 9 months down the road and wait for the DLC at the end of the year. There really isnt much of difference other than its on 900p on Switch adn 720 on Wii U, and its still looks great and the frame rate drop is about the same on both consoles, and the gameplay honestly makes up for the performance (which is not that big deal) later down the road, because its so fucking awesome.

Just got mine, and played for like 9 hours. Loving it. It really does feel like Zelda 1 in terms of design philosophy. No hand holding, no companion character, no forced linear progression. Just a big open world full of secrets, puzzles, dungeons, adventures, and enemies that will wreck your shit if you're not prepared. The framerate dips are a thing, but not a game ruining thing, and I expect there will be some optimization patches down the line. Viewing the Switch as a successor to the 3DS rather then a the Wii U, it's really a remarkable advancement in tech. I can't wait to see what the next Monster Hunter looks like on this thing. Also Hyrule Warriors 2 when?

Skyrim was boring but hot damn the dungeon designs were great, especially when that was a big weak point in Oblivion.

Some.

It also had ten thousand half-assed oblivion portals, most of which could have been procedurally generated judging by their level design. Same for a lot of random caves.

Skyrim has absolutely shit combat mechanics. If you disagree, go play Dark Souls until you can conceive of a middle ground between its deep mechanical brutality and Skyrim/Oblivion's pure sword spam.

Thank you man I agree 100% combat is way better. Honestly combat is so core I hadn't even considered it.

When I ask what is different I mean a core mechanic. You can't really mod assassin's Creed parkour system or watch dogs hacking into Skyrim. You can very easily mod the textures to look like Hyrule, the crafting to increase potion strength, the telekinesis to look like magnets, etc. I don't think I'm asking an unfair question

My point being for a game to be "10/10" I think it needs something innovative done very well, a portal gun, gravity gun, tf2's very clear class system in an fps, halos clear weapon/vehicle variety of human/alien, gta's beat up hookers do whatever the fuck you want atmosphere

When I look at BOTW I don't see anything original, I see Skyrim with Zelda textures and some of the bad mechanics (namely fighting and climbing) are fixed to make it more intuitive

For a lot of people it seems an open world exploration Zelda is enough and that is innovative to them. For me personally I don't see anything in this game that I haven't seen before. I still enjoy it and will probably put in a bunch of hours but it isn't a "10/10 omg best game of all time" game to me

Elder Scrolls has always been just a re-tread of Ultima Underworld anyway

Obviously the difference in mechanics between Zelda and Ultima Underworld is that in UU and TES games, you generally get more powerful by finding better versions of the same shit you're already using and increasing your stat points, while in Zelda you get more powerful by finding new items and building up an arsenal of adventure tools and shit that let you kick ass in new ways and also access new areas.

Zelda is a game about fighting enemies because they are obstacles to your seeking out new mechanical tools, while Elder Underscrolls is a game about seeking enemies to fight for experience points and money for marginal upgrades to the one item you have enough stat points in to kill things with. Magic adds a decent sprinkling of variety to the combat in UU and TES games, but spells that give you an entirely new unique movement ability or style of attack the same way getting the Hookshot or Pegasus Boots in Zelda 3 did, are very rare. On that point I must mention that Shouts in Skyrim were a gigantic leap in the right direction, by far the most fun part of the game for me.

Furthermore, Zelda combat generally focuses more on avoiding damage by learning and maneuvering around enemy attack patterns, while UU and TES combat is more like an MMO: you and the enemy start bashing the fuck out of each other, and you usually win because you can pause the game and eat 100 potatoes to gain back the health you lose. Armor and sword upgrades in Zelda are very rare, usually only 3 or 4 per game, because the goal of the combat is not getting hit at all while dishing out the most efficient amount of damage (almost like it's a fucking skill-based game or something). In Ultima Elderscrolls that's generally not possible without sitting somewhere that enemies can't reach and spamming arrows into their heads, so the game just constantly dripfeeds you better and better armor to take less damage and health potions to tank what you do take.

Note I've mostly got the 2D Zeldas in mind for these explanations because they're way better games mechanically than the 3D ones; the 3D ones are just too mollycoddling, and forgot that Zelda 1, 2 and 3 trying their hardes to fucking murder you is what made them really exciting to play. Dark Souls is what 3D Zelda gameplay always should have been, except Zelda would need more movement and utility tools because it's fucking Zelda.

Oh yeah and Zelda actually has some fucking thought put into its dungeons and overworlds and towns and isn't designed around a fucking GPS minimap marker lol. I remember the general layout of every Zelda game I've played because A) each area is highly distinctive and B) I actually had to find my fucking way around when looking for shit, after being vaguely pointed in the direction of my next objective. This is what makes Morrowind the most nostalgic and beloved game in the series; when you spend your entire adventure staring at the fucking compass pointer at the top of the screen instead of having to circumnavigate your own damn ass to your goal, you aren't paying attention to the actual fucking game until you hear the fight music start up. Morrowind is covered in fucking fog 20 feet ahead of you at all times and I still remember Vvardenfell's layout to like 70% accuracy; meanwhile if you asked me to draw a line tracing the main quest in Skyrim on the overworld map I would have no fucking idea where it even started.

Oh yeah also, Ultima Underworld has one really big, really complex, really well designed dungeon that is the entire game, it IS the overworld, and TES games have a lot of fucking barren wilderness constantly dotted by generic towns and dungeons that are on a verage 2 or 3 fucking rooms big. The expansive landscapes of Elder Scrolls games definitely look "epic" in screenshots, but Ultima Underworld actually FELT epic, because you got a real sense of the scope of the place as you descended ever deeper into the Stygian Abyss. It was fucking gigantic, and it was just one location in a world potentially full of similarly awe-inspiring complexes; by showing you a deep but narrow slice of this fantasy world, the game basically gets your brain to do all the work imagining what the world outside might be like. By showing you the entire country of Skyrim but having barely fucking anything interesting in it, the game gets your brain to be really fucking bored and running on autopilot.

The SuperBunnyHop guy used this analogy in his MGS3 video: "If Skyrim is an ocean that's ankle deep, Metal Gear Solid 3 is the Mariana Trench." Same principle for Ultima Underworld. Nice job stealing a good game and doing it vastly fucking worse, Bethesda. You utter fucking hacks.

Nah. Sometimes it's even better to make a big open world game that isn't blatantly deficient in several key areas or centered around one major gimmick like Shadow of Mordor. Balancing good core gameplay with all of that open world adventure good stuff is impressive.

Oblivion was great in its day, but when I booted up Skyrim for the first time and played it for a month straight, I wasn't pumped to continue. After Morrowind's flaws i could accept the bland combat of Oblivion, but they just didn't develop it at all. It was just Oblivion converted over to more of a Fallout 3 system. As much as Skyrim blew Oblivion's world out of the water, it just wasn't as fun to be in the beautiful zones and dungeons with the prior experience of Morrowind without some mechanical depth to the fighting to make the core gameplay truly engaging.

Zelda has always nailed core gameplay and I can't wait to pick this up, move into my sister's house for a month and monopolize my nephews' Wii U.

>Morrowind's combat has mechanical depth? Are you talking about dice rolls or what?

What replaced the die rolls in Oblivion and Skyrim?
Why does the difficulty slider ONLY increase time-to-kill?

They had mechanics, they streamlined them out and now The Elder Scrolls has sword spam as their combat mechanic. Every attack hits, every attack hits for low damage, and every fight with the same monster lasts the same amount of time.

>The combat in that game is trash.
Nothing to do with underlying mechanics slash, chop, swing. They don't NEED to be abstracted by die rolls. They should be exposed to the control scheme and useful. Skyrim's basic combat is mechanically void. It's nothing but filler between your spells and perk abilities.

What I want is for the die rolls from Morrowind to be replaced with Dark Souls mechanics. Elder Scrolls has stamina, it even has weapon movesets, it has blocking and those are all the ingredients you need for mechanically deep combat. if you map them to the controls, you've got a fun, skill rewarding game.

If you streamline them out entirely, as with Oblivion and Skyrim, you're 90% of the way to single player World-of-Warcraft grinding.

Armor can be bought, some can be found, but the best heavy ones are purchased in certain towns.

If you're looking forward to playing anything else that will come out by the end of the year, like Mario, Splatoon, Xenoblade 2, Mario Kart 8.1, Snipperclips, Dragon Quest, Fire Emblem, Skyrim, etc. you'd be future proofing yourself to pick it up on Switch. If not, you're not going to miss out on anything with the Wii U version.

You missed the part where it's completely broken. Getting past the boot screen is still an accomplishment, but don't kid yourself, it's going to be years before it's even close to being playable, and maybe a decade before it runs flawlessly. Also get the fuck out of here with that le circlejerking faggotry.

I've been following CEMU since it went public. It's awesome. It's making great progress. None of that has anything to do with the fact that it has a long way to go before BotW is playable from start to finish on it. That's not coming from my ass, that's coming from the fact that emulation always takes time to get from bootable ROMs and ISOs to totally bug free gameplay. If anyone's talking out there ass, it's you because you clearly have no idea how emulation works and how hard it is to replicate the same experience you get from the genuine article. Dolphin has been making tons of progress for years and it's still not perfect for a lot of essential games. Shit takes time.

I feel like both the Nintendo Switch and Breath of the Wild are like a finale for both Nintendo and the Zelda series.

The Switch is here for the long haul and I dont see a new mainline Zelda game coming out for at least 6+ years or so.

I dont know how exactly what you do with the series from this point. Breath of the Wild is an incredible game but how exactly do you progress from this? If they did another open world game, it would probably just feel stale and you cant go back to the traditional Zelda style after a game like this.

To be fair, people said pretty much the same things after OoT and WW, respectively. It's going to be a while before a next mainline Zelda, but by then open world action adventure game development will have advanced, and Nintendo will put their own spin on it like they always have. Now that the console and handheld sides have unified, I'm interested to see if they'll try something like Link Between Worlds again.

Also I agree the season pass thing is bullshit, but the amount of content for the MSRP is already insane, and in the era of $40 season passes that amount to little more than skins and challenge packs, $20 for whatever their promising might not be so bad depending on if the new story content is as in depth as the rest of the game so far.

>depending on if the new story content is as in depth as the rest of the game so far.

I havent finished the game but based on the memory sequences I have found, I am going to guess that it will probably be a prequel story that takes place before the Calamity Ganon annihilation. One of the memories 100 years ago was of Zelda mentioning something about Link having been though hell to get where they are now. So it sounds like Link went on another adventure before being sealed away for 100 years

Thats just my assumption though. I have only beat one divine beast and only have 6 memory sequences so I still dont know whats going on in the story or why Zelda 100 years ago was such a cunt. Its like shes constantly PMSing

From Jim Sterlings review of BOTW. this is something I agree with and probably the one thing I dislike the most about the game

>Weapons break in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They break a LOT, to the point where it starts looking absolutely pathetic, to the point where you wonder why every blacksmith in the world hasn’t been fired or thrown in jail for gross incompetence.

Seriously, whether its a tree branch or a heavy mighty knights sword, it seems that weapons all break after the same amount of abuse.

It's contrived, but I don't think it really detracts from anything. Once you start finding some decent weapons they do get a lot more durable. The trick is to use the right weapons against the right enemies.

I didn't really feel like saying this, because it's probably a stupid thing and I'm completely wrong but I'll say it anyway because that post sets off alarm bells. To me, this game isn't very "Zelda" like, especially the breaking of weapons, in Zelda you get a sword, then you eventually upgrade it to make it stronger, and then you do that again, been like that since the first Zelda. Is there a master sword in this game? If so, can that break?

I usually find myself agreeing with Jim on a lot of things, but this time I think he's way off base. I think it's more like >>696272 said, although I would say increasing the durability of weapons by at least a factor of 5 would go some way to sorting the problem. The only thing I would like to see though, is a "Chest Of Infinite Holding" or some other such item storage in the player home that you can buy. Just having a maximum of 3 weapon/shield mounts is practically criminal in a world where you could easily fit it in and not have it break canon too much or be entirely outside the established physics of the in-game universe...

The bit about people literally freaking the fuck out over a critic giving his critique makes me shake my head in disbelief. Just because he personally didn't like it doen't mean it is a bad game in any way, people are different and like different things. If he had outright lied or had such ridiculous complaints about it that it seemed as though he was just hating for the sake of hating, I could see why some people would be upset.

I guess I can take some solace in the fact that all fanbases suck, some more than others...

Thank God for Jim Fucking Sterling Son...

While I don't want to disagree with the stuff they say, I do want to think there are better ways to communicate them than being 100% incendiary all the time. Rage is tiresome, and before long you just want to stop listening to them even when they're right lest you become as wholly negative as they are.

>>696353
The great thing about the pacing of this game is you're openly encouraged to go off the path (I didn't even get to Kakariko until hours after I was 'supposed to' because I went the wrong way off the Plateau) and when you get tired of that, you can just head for a Divine Beast. And get distracted all over again on the way.

I think this game wasn't meant for you.

If you've ever played the first Zelda game, you'd understand. The empty world is supposed to be empty. That's one thing this game does right, and Skyrim did somewhat wrong. Open worlds need empty space, lots of it. This makes the space where things are actually important.

That's one thing Nintendo understands, Bethesda doesn't quite yet understand, and Ubisoft will never understand.

If anyone else is having this problem with random, way-too-frequent blood moons, I think I fixed it. Try this:

1) in system turn off synchronize clock via internet

2) change date to tomorrow

3) turn back on synchronize clock via internet

4) make sure to close zelda if open

This also fixed a problem I had where Amiibos wouldn't work, saying "This can't be used again today" even 24+ hours (real time) after the last attempt. Seems to be a programming oversight having to do with daylight saving time.

And when you finally do his dungeon in the dark world, he's a locked up girl who you save but won't leave because of the light until you drag her to a room where you have to bomb the floor on the second floor above it and corner her in the sun, and then finally right the dude.

fucked up but true: businesses have always made rational decisions to cynically present themselves in a light that they feel will best maximize the sales of their product. sometimes those decisions backfire, for example when their customer base turns out to be composed of mouthbreathers who think white genocide is real. that's just the way the world works.

If you have a Wii U then it's a great purchase that runs fine. If you don't own a Wii U and have to choose between it and the Switch then it's probably better to go with the Switch. Seeing as they won't be making anymore games for the Wii U and will now focus all effort on Switch for future games.

It doesn't work in this day and age with how easily we're all connected and able to whine endlessly on a subject as long as we please. Even more so in this modern internet witch hunt age, some people make it their mission to be professionally butthurt and get off on making companies backpedal or do what they want. So it isn't surprising when a smaller company gives in when even the big boys are licking feet of those who are the loudest.

On the Switch, use the screenshot button to take pics, then share them to Facebook from the album (you can set the privacy to "only me" if you don't want it on your timeline or w/e), and download them from there. Sadly it downscales them to 720p and introduces some compression artifacts, but it's more convenient than having an entire streaming setup.

No idea if you can do this on Wii U.

The only way to do it on Wii U is to post a screenshot on Miiverse (which downscales it even harder to 800 × 450), find the post on a computer and save it that way. Thank god for the capture button.

My guess is that its a prequel that happens before the great calamity. Zelda mentions in one of the memories that Link has seen many battles and went though hardships before getting to that point, so I feel like its going to be the story of one of those battles.

It's actually very rare that someone forks some abandoned open source emulator and brings it to a finished state. People who write successful emulators study the old stuff, spend a lot of time documenting the hardware, and then start from a fairly clean slate. Bootstrapping with someone's half-baked attempt because it can boot games wouldn't do you any great favors.

The blood moon glitch supposedly happens if you keep the game running after putting the Switch in sleep mode. Another side effect is the 3 dragons not being interactable at close range. Close and reopen the game every once in awhile and you shouldn't have those problems.

The game started really great but everything feels like a chore now. Ive mapped out the entire game and im just going through the trials but im already bored of the cooking aspect of the game and i wish the weapons wouldn't break so easily. I got through two divine beasts and got only two memories left to find but i'm just gonna save the rest of the game for later. It's a great game but i'm just soo exhausted of running across the map back and forth. I should've paced myself but i've been playing it for six hours everyday for a week now and i just feel like i need a break. Plus i got Neir and Persona just collecting dust which says a lot about how breath of the wild took complete hold of my attention. I'm sure once i get back on it il feel the same awesome feeling i got the first time i played it.

Anyways i haven't finished the game but i'm sure it deserves more than 7/10 that Jim Sterling fellow is a fucking moron.

So I just finished it. Fantastic game but at the same time, I am extremely worried

Nintendo isnt locking the true ending behind the season pass are they? After the credits, Zelda says that one of the divine beasts has stopped working and that they need to investigate. She also says that Ganon will return one day. Is this what that "new adventure" is going to be in the Holiday DLC drop?[%]

How the fuck is Zelda still a teenager after 100 fucking years. How the fuck did she even stay alive that long?

Im guessing Zelda is probably going to be the hero to shut up everyone who was whining about not being able to play as a female Link. Judging by the ending, my guess is that... Link is captured by the Yiga clan and Zelda who has now lost her powers goes to save him

This^


I like the open feel but none of it really has the true gritty challenging feeling that the old Zeldas seemed to embrace. Where are the hard puzzles? They were a little limited in terms of differentiating the shrine feel, mostly just feel like they're too short and a tedium in the end.

>Keep the small shrines, but complement with more larger traditional labyrinthine dungeons that really encourage the use of your tools to solve puzzles. Zelda puzzles were literally never hard, but I miss large interlocking puzzle rooms that really flesh out and explore the use of a mechanic. Also the Tests of Strength should throw more than one freaking enemy type at you. Make it a wave based survival thing. I'm guessing that's how the Cave of Trials will work.

>Better main bosses that are puzzles in and of themselves like in the older games, rather than just being able to cheese your way through them with parries. Technically the Blight bosses do have certain tricks to countering them, but they're not really essential to defeating them since you can just brute force your way through them.

>Wider variety of field enemies and minibosses. Pallate swapping bokoblins, lizaflos, moblins, staflos, wizrobes, and keese gets boring. I miss Poes, Darknuts, Gibdo/ReDeads, Armos, Wallmasters, Beamos, Dodongos, and the dozens of other monsters I didn't even realize were missing until I sat down and though about the lack of variety. The giant minibosses are fucking awesome though, but again, more variety wouldn't hurt. This is something a sequel, or even the season pass, is basically guaranteed to improve.

>I don't have a major problem with the weapon degradation, but more legendary weapons like the Master Sword, that just work on a cooldown timer, or could be repaired and upgraded would be fine too.

>The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass DLC Pack 1 Detailed

>Trial of the Sword
When you get to a certain sacred location, you can take on the new "Trial of the Sword" challenge. Face an onslaught of enemies, one wave after another. Link starts the challenge without any equipment or weapons. When all the enemies in a room are defeated, Link proceeds to the next. Clear all the trials (about 45 rooms in total), and the true power of the Master Sword will be awakened, and it will always be in its glowing powered-up state while usable.

>Hero's Path Mode
This new map feature shows the path Link has walked through Hyrule from the last 200 hours of gameplay. Use the time tracker bar to see where you've spent the most time and where you have yet to explore. There's bound to be more adventures and maybe a shrine or two on the road less traveled.

>Hard Mode
In Hard Mode, enemies gradually regain health, so take them out as quickly as possible. All enemies are also powered up by one level. For example, Red Bokoblins in Normal mode are now Blue Bokoblins. Enemies can also have higher maximum levels than they would in Normal mode. Look up, and you may also find enemies and treasure chests in the sky!

>Travel Medallion
Somewhere in the world, there is a chest with a Travel Medallion inside. When you use this, you can register your current location as a fast travel point on the map. You can only register one location using the Travel Medallion.

>More Armor
There are 8 treasure chests placed around Hyrule containing armor themed after previous The Legend of Zelda titles. Watch for tips as to the whereabouts of these chests as you travel around Hyrule.

>Korok Mask
The Korok Mask is also hidden in a treasure chest somewhere in the world. While wearing this mask, it shakes whenever Link is near a hidden Korok location. There are 900 Koroks hiding in Hyrule, so this should help you discover quite a few of them.

>Eventide Island was one of my favorite parts because you had to figure out how to do all these things with minimal gear
And the way best figured is drop a good sword, bow, and shield on your raft just before you trigger the island's mechanic

Patch 1.2.0 is out too, adds multi-language support to the game. Which language are you guys looking forward to playing through? For me it's a choice between Japanese, Italian, and Russian...

So it's been a few months, is anyone still playing this?

I finished the game, explored all the wide open areas a decent amount and followed all the roads and I'm pretty much done with it. Last I played was probably early April.

My main issue is that at this point there's probably some more cool things out there but there's no way to find them without looking them up and looking them up kind of defeats the purpose.

The other two things are:
  1. Literally every single quest is "find and bring back" which amounts to more looking stuff up which again defeats the purpose
  2. There's only 3 types of enemies (+a few special "mini-bosses") and that shit gets old real quick especially considering the lizards are so fucking annoying

I am still playing. I am 150 hours in, and I am taking the liberty of taking pictures on everything that is required for the logs. I am almost done with that, and I am still trying all the max upgrades for my gear and the original gear after you get all 120 shrines.

I also, don't ride a horse. I just tend to walk everywhere. And don't take shrine shortcuts. Makes the game more enjoyable. Also, I still got a lot of quest to do.

>the entire game is literally just fetch quests
>not using shrines to move faster or even using horse
So what, you literally went (read: walked) to every village/stable, talked to every single NPC to get every quest, and now you're just walking back and forth across the ENTIRE map looking for items and then keeping a gigantic spreadsheet of what items you still need to find?

and you have the audacity to say we're "lazy bastards" cus we don't think it's fun walking across the SAME fucking map over and over again just looking for the Princess's Dickweed flower but oh wait it only spawns at night between 11:34-11:38 so guess I missed it I'll just walk back across the ENTIRE MAP?

you sound beyond autistic dude do you not have the money for another game or do you seriously think walking is THAT fun in this game? jesus christ if that's legitimately fun then power to ya but don't act like we're the ones in the wrong here cus that seriously sounds like the most retarded thing I've ever heard

I think it's fun enjoying the scenery and finding places "oh, I wonder what over there, haven't seen that" gives you the sense of adventure and skipping shit using shrines robs you that experience.

And you are not walking across the same shit you numb nuts. At times I don't even bother do the quest or I will find a shrine and do sometbing else or prepare to fight a lynel. I mix it up a bit. I didn't have that same feeling with Skyrim

>you sound beyond autistic
I like getting my monies worth. I am sorry, my goal is to enjoy the game as much as possible, not beat it as quickly and then put it down. I am sorry you have ADHD

>looking for the Princess's Dickweed flower but oh wait it only spawns at night between 11:34-11:38 so guess I missed it I'll just walk back across the ENTIRE MAP?

Ever heard of a camp fire you mongoloid

And yes, you are wrong the game was meant to be explored all across the board. I'd that's not your thing, that fine with me. Take the shortcuts,, but you are missing out.
