I miss old dungeons. Also quests are pretty lame fetch quests for money. Is there any meaningful quests...I loved majoras mask people's lives and etc... I'm looking for that.

I went to hyrule castle And it was great.., my favorite part so far. Calamity ganon isn't involved enough imo

Best in games are against none story bosses maybe you didn't killed enough monsters to see their silver version ?
But no, this game is not Majora Mask like game.

They also teach you stuff about the tribes, their uses, the lore in general etc and those are reminiscent of Majora's Mask. Then sure there are some fetch quests, and it's ok that they give you money since you don't really find many rupees around anymore, but let's try not to suggest that all this title has in terms of subquests are fetch quests. Because it's false.

Bring me a horse, take a picture of this thing, I need 10 of this, find my friend... these aren't fetch quests????

Majoras mask quests were awesome because you got game changing masks and finally the fierce deity mask. They were great stories, depressing about the end of their life and the world.

Let me be positive, still finding new items things and haven't even explored most of the world. Equipment is awesome, love the personality and touches. Still haven't tried to tackle lynels. I mean yea there's sooo much content but but getting a new weapon+++ isn't that great compared to getting a hook shot, Invisibilty cape, etc. i guess cause weapons break in end game it doesn't have the same effect of getting a giants sword from oot.

I enjoyed eventide island ... idk feel like there's not much reward I guess other than endless playing which is good on its own. More fun the stronger you get though

Yea I fought some mini bosses likemogdula and haven't done anything with the dragons yet. Are you talking about white versions with cavemen looking clothing? Or silver is something more? Yea I mean it's good that I can play this game for years but my favorite thing of zelda has always been the dungeons lol. So yea definitely a 360

No use in tackling the remaining three dungeons if you're already bored. At 50 hours, you're likely powerful enough to finish the game.

Btw, I'm 105 hours into the game and am still utterly consumed by this world. :)

I always power the console off and had it happen once, I immediately reloaded a save before the bloodmoon and powered the console off.
never happened again.

It "breaks" when it runs out of energy. Just let it break and it will regenerate after 10 minutes.

Just let it shatter and then it comes back in 10 minutes.

Low energy is just a weapon specific way of saying low durability.

I'm talking about normal monsters up to Lynel.
Not sure about the others since I didn't killed that much and I don't think dragons count.

Destroy the Guardian drones. Use Magnesis.

Still don't get why this area is such a challenge for some people.

I can understand the frustration from the Yiga Clan Hideout (even though I loved it), but not this section.

The latter, but make a few heat resistant elixirs instead of food.

If you're a ways into the Tarrey Town sidequest, you'll meet a character very early on in the desert than can sell you armor long before you reach the inside of Gerudo Town.

This is also true. Travel in the early morning, evening, or night. I like having a few elixirs available though, so I can just explore whenever.

Cool thanks. I haven't even explored the Northern parts of the map yet so I guess I'll better start cooking!

That's not the game slowing down it's a glitch when Moblins ragdoll.

I do however have 115+ korok seeds and 40+ shrines. This game is so good man.

Man.

I rarely post in OT's while I'm playing the game. But I just gotta drop some love here

I honestly thought Zelda was done after Skyward Sword. Like, I had almost zero hype for this game.

But this is blowing me away. There is something to discover every 30 feet in this game. Whether it's a puzzle, something off in the distance, a note, a traveler that gives you a tip, a shrine...

I have so much in my head I want to do, and they are all quests I came up with for myself. Saw a weird formation, someone mentioned a weird story, a memory gave me an idea to climb a mountain to see what's there...fuck man! And no of that stuff is a "quest" that the game makes for you. It's all you b. Don't want to take the path? CLIMB EVERYTHING.

This is staggeringly impressive.

Edit: a lot of serious frame rate problems though. Man, sometimes it drops for 10 to 20 seconds at a time. And big drops.

I killed a Lynel near Gerudo Valley about 14 times. It dropped exactly the same items each time for some reason. Maybe I should fast travel to a shrine and walk back. Doesn't seem like that should be happening

Finished all the dungeons. Goron was also easy but I still loved how cool the experience was. Running while its body is shifting is pretty rad and mind bending. If I had to do it all over again, I'd do Rito > Goron > Zora > Gerudo. The Death Mountain region also seems like the most linear area in the game since the lava prevents you from traversing in all the ways that you'd like.

I was also kind of disappointed at how small the city was. Rito was tiny but even they had more NPCs. That being said, Yunobo + Daruk were cool dudes. Good VA as well. Seems like anyone that doesn't have to sound British sounds good. The mine cart rides were also a ton of fun.

I treated myself to the last unexplored region. Holy crap @ The Ridgelands. So alien, so awesome looking. Ran into a memory on my way there as well. Time to get a crap ton of shrines and quests, do the dragons, collect the memories, complete my weapon set with that one shield and take a long horse ride across Hyrule before I end Ganon.

Breath of the Wild has started so many discussions, it's awesome. About game philosohpy, rating games and of course the open world trend. Those things alone makes it one of the more important titles of the last few years.

Funny how there's mostly two camps of people. Those who are seriously impressed and/or loving it and those who are bored out of their mind with this game. Wtf? :D
I mean, you can look at Zelda from a purely analytical standpoint and boil it down to the most basic gameplay loop. You can do that with every game, though...I'll never understand that. I'd never enjoy any game anymore if I did this. :D

I could climb baobabs or mushroom trees for an hour and be fine, hehe! My mind goes wild just thinking about the different areas and bioms. <3

Got done with all of the Divine Beasts. Thoughts spoiler'd below.

Such wasted potential. There's like one nugget of a great idea here, but so much went wrong with the designs of these things. They might be the worst Zelda dungeons ever honestly. There're only two types of enemies regardless of which one you're in, the same mini-guardians from the shrines and knock-off Lost Souls from Doom. No minibosses, no unique enemies to fit the Beats, just guardians and floating skulls. It's embarrassing.

Also, having all of the Beasts boil down to "Find the map > Find 5 terminals > Fight the boss" is incredibly boring, and it's weird that the Champion spirits laboriously explain what to do every single time regardless of how many you've before, even though the game is normally really good at not spelling out for the player exactly what to do.

Also also, having all of the bosses be *insertelementhere*-blight Ganon, with similar looks to boot, is crap. It's just crap. Zelda dungeons have always had stellar bosses for the most part, and I have no idea why the dropped the ball so hard here. Even keeping to the rule of "no dungeon items to fight the bosses with", they could've at least made the bosses unique monsters. And to add insult to injury, all of them save for Thunderblight are incredibly easy. I didn't take any damage fighting Wind or Water, and I only got hit once fighting Fire because I was figuring out what to do in the second phase. Random Lynels in the wild are much more fun to fight.

The only good thing was the fact you can alter the layout of the dungeons to solve puzzles and get places. That was awesome, and I'd kill for that to be a feature in bigger and better designed Zelda dungeons (oh wait, Stone Tower Temple is already a thing).


tl;dr they're pretty shitty.
