Title: LoZ: Breath of the Wild
Post by: Mightily Oats on March 04, 2017, 02:33:05 AM
The Zelda franchise has finally evolved, and it's done so with aplomb.

Fuck this game is good, and fuck the world is HUGE

I have the Wii U version, btw

I'm starting it now, been looking forward to it all day.  From what I've read this thing is open world Zelda with elements from things like the Bethesda games and Dark Souls series.  Basically all the good stuff without the clunky shit.  What is the second screen used for on the Wii U version?

My Switch doesn't arrive until Monday. Got my Special Edition sitting here ready to go though.

Nothing.

There was one gyroscope necessary puzzle (so not sure how that puzzle works on Switch?) so far, and there's gyroscope aiming if you want,****** but they took out GamePad functionality to make both releases more similar.

You can play on the GamePad and that's about it. But except for the one puzzle, I've been using the Pro

******Edit: sorry nope there's motion control aiming if you use a Wiimote/Nunchuk, but no gyroscope aiming

Edit edit: OK THERE'S BOTH

But one major plus about all that:

Switching between which controller is in command is as simple as flicking a joystick, and it's instant, so that was a nice move.

Been hearing the weapon breaking system is kinda bullshit. Any truth to it?
Title: Re: LoZ: Breath of the Wild
Post by: Mightily Oats on March 18, 2017, 09:59:21 PM
Only if you had particular expectations for it

The game is designed around using up weapons, then scavenging new ones

At a pretty fast clip

The only exception is the Master Sword, but even it needs to "recharge" after you use it too much

It's a negative aspect of an amazing game, so yes there is truth to it but it's nowhere near a deal-breaker.

It's balanced enought that you never run out of weapons, so what do you mean?

And I notice the more hearts and stamina I have, i.e. the higher level (I am max at this point) I am, the more often better weapons drop and the more often they have Durability Up + as additional statistics.
Title: Re: LoZ: Breath of the Wild
Post by: Mightily Oats on March 19, 2017, 04:23:29 AM
But even when I first started playing, I was never weaponless at any point.

Did I have to make do with shit sometimes? You bet your ass

I think people are just pissed about finding a high damage weapon and finding out its base durability i.e. how many hits you get before it breaks is roughly similar to much weaker weapons

Against a white mane Lynel, that has 4k HP, you can expect to burn through 4-5 really good weapons

But you can also upgrade your available weapon/bow/shield slots

Like I say, it's incredibly well balanced, but a lot of people are gpnna bitch no matter what

Games get really fucking weird and put realism in the silliest places.

"Look guys, weapon aren't forever. You can't just hit the same sword off things forever... it will break! That's how life works. So with our new system, you can deal with the difficulty of the real world by having to maintain and find new weapons when your old ones break. we are dedicated to making our games feel real and have real-life situations and implications. Oh, and by the way... here's a large fox enemy. You have to shoot it with 250 bullets or use 10 explosive devices to kill it. You know. Like real foxes".

It is. It's LoZ & Skyrim's rock climbing baby. It's fucking great. I tend to do the same shit I did with Skyrim.

Yeah, no fucking way I'm looking for 900 Korok seeds. Fuck. That. Whatever I find is whatever I find.

I'll search out for all of the Shrines, though. I've done 40 or so at this point.
Title: Re: LoZ: Breath of the Wild
Post by: MTL76 on March 22, 2017, 03:34:42 PM
Are there the typical RPG stats in this game, like strength, wisdom, etc? Do you level up?

I used to like Elder Scrolls style stats, and I guess I still do, but it seems like character creation plays such a huge role in those games, such as using skills you DON'T need to level up, avoiding leveling too quickly, etc.
Title: Re: LoZ: Breath of the Wild
Post by: LiquidSailor on March 22, 2017, 03:36:36 PM
You don't really level up.  You go to shrines and put the "points" into more hearts or more stamina.  Which is guess in a way could be considered leveling up.
Title: Re: LoZ: Breath of the Wild
Post by: MTL76 on March 22, 2017, 04:08:30 PM
Yeah but that sounds a lot simpler than the massive character planning that goes into an Elder Scrolls game (and that's not a bad thing.)
Title: Re: LoZ: Breath of the Wild
Post by: NeoGreenLantern on March 22, 2017, 04:34:57 PM
Well the Zelda games were never rpgs. They were adventure games. You'd advance by getting new equipment and more life and that's it.

A while?

I know it's less of an issue in Skyrim than Oblivion, which was less of an issue than in Morrowind.

Point distribution is gone entirely in Skyrim

Racial perks is the only thing worth considering

Yeah I'm blurring different ES games together. But even in Skyrim, there are some weird things to consider. Like if you increase your non-combat skills too quickly without increasing some combat skills, you could level up too much and you'd get your ass kicked. Or something like that.

Post by: XerxesTWD on March 27, 2017, 08:00:53 PM
Started playing this on Saturday morning. Pretty great so far. It's weird not having a Dodge Roll available.

Being able to climb 99% of the world is a good trade-off, but removing the Dodge Roll seems unnecessary.
Title: Re: LoZ: Breath of the Wild
Post by: LiquidSailor on March 27, 2017, 08:15:48 PM
I think they took it out because they want you to focus on combat target dodging and countering attacks.

I'm still working on parry timing, but dodging for the Flurry Attack (or whatever it's called) is pretty easy. Actively hunting Lynnel's, now. Got a 39x3 bow last night from one.

The Yiga clan fucked me up when we first met because the guy looked like a regular traveler, then said he's going to kill me. Before I could properly react I was dead and he was gone when I respawned.

Now they only get one or two hits on me, depending on landscape, if they hit me at all. They want to send me where I sent Kouga.

Something really cool:
I was up on one of the towers at Lake Hylia, waiting for Farosh. It turns into a lightning storm, so I start changing to wooden gear. Suddenly, I see sparks in front of me. WTF? There's literally nothing there.

Huge lightning strike. Windcleaver falls at my feet.

One of the Yiga sword guys was teleporting in to stab me and got struck by lightning and died. I got a free sword.

hahaha.

I can pretty much take them out in one flurry. Wait for them to charge, do a back flip, and then hit them with a flurry. Easy peasy.

Well thats disappointing. Don't bring up Zelda Zords if we don't get to use them.

Everything I read about this game sounds so cool. Like how if you equip an ice weapon while in the desert, it protects you from the heat and the sun, or if you equip a metal weapon during a storm you may get hit by lightning... but you can time it right and chuck the metal weapon at a bad guy so they get hit by the lightning.

Random metal weapons and the like just lying around attract lightning during storms, and if you have a full, 2 tiers upgraded rubber suit or the thunder helm, you can even use the AoE of being by lightning to fuck up enemies around you
