The Legend of Zelda thread - Master Sword? Light Arrows? Tunics? Nah son. I'm fighting Ganon naked!


FYI, lightning strikes are AOE. Damn near got killed by one when it struck a nearby metal chest.


So far for you guys, would you say this Zelda would make it harder to go back and play an older 3d one? I don’t wanna play this one until I beat SS and MM because I’m worried that it will be weird going back to the old formula. But I doubt it though since I’ve played series that have switched up and its still fine to go back to older titles.

Just wondering because I may go pick it up, or I think my sister was gonna buy it as a bday gift for me


This game isnt zelda. It’s the perfect open world game with a zelda skin


Found a second pinwheel. I didn’t think anything of the first one I found, but now that I’ve found another, I think they do something. I tried using a leaf on it, but nothing happened.


Yea I really like this to. A big world to wander around and get lost in. That’s what I look for in adventure games these days.


there’s a camera. I am now gonna take a selfie with every boss i fight


Well this was an unexpected find. At least, in the area I was in.


Didn’t realize they had accordions in Hyrule.

I do like the new Rito designs. Though since there are Rito, Koroks, AND Zora in this game, it makes me wonder where in the timeline this takes place…[/details]

There really is something to find in every corner of the world.


This is already the best Zelda I’ve played.

Not a huge fan of the series but this game has consistantly gave me that wow feeling. My previous favorite of the series is LttP.


Ooh, I like the fire rod. Gotta be careful not to break this one.


stand on the stump, shoot the balloons that appear. At least, that was one of them that I did.


I figured out what the pinwheel did when I found a 3rd one. Now I need to go back and find the other two again. I’ll try standing on the stump if I can find it.


Fighting enemies in the middle of a thunderstorm is quite exhilarating.

…scary as heck, but still. :rofl:

And hey, this Wizzrobe dropped a lightning rod! That’s cool.

EDIT: Some tidbits about the lightning rod I just found.

[details=Spoiler]That’s pretty awesome; if you use a lightning rod in the middle of a rainstorm, it amplifies its power like crazy; if it hits something, it creates a massive energy sphere, hitting a bunch of enemies at one time AND doing tons of damage. I was OHKO-ing Lizalfos with ease.

…sadly I also used it up really fast during all that (its durability isn’t bad, mind you). At least I took out another Yiga Clan member with it before it broke. :sad:[/details]


I have to say…between the Rito and the Zoras, I really like the new designs the races got. Aside from being nice aesthetically, it really goes well with the overall art style.

Only one I’m not sure of is the Gorons, but I’ve only seen one so far, so can’t really say for certain. Though then again I never cared for the Gorons to begin with, so that might have something to do with it :rofl:


Stopped by a couple stores after work and no dice on the Y USB cable. Was about to go out after a nap, and try Frys. Decided to delete the DLC pack off XCX, and now I’m at 13 gigs of free space?

Downloading the 3 gig install right now. I feel silly.

I had 8000-some kilobytes. The XCX was 4,000-some kilobytes. Seems weird once I looked up the ratio. Not gonna worry about it now.

I still plan on getting a Y Cable and hard drive to eventually nabbed al the data packs for XCX, but I was feeling bummed that I was going to pay more for the HDD and cable than I did for the game.


Haha. There’s two lakes called “Mikau” and “Lulu,” and they’re right next to each other.

It’s a small thing, but it still puts a smile on my face. :slight_smile:


What am i missing with that reference?


It begins :slight_smile:


…you haven’t played Majora’s Mask?

…actually there seems to be a lot of references in the location names. A few I expected, but the others are neat:

[details=Spoiler]Linebeck Island
Ralis Pond
Ruto Mountain
Ruto Precipice
Mikau Lake
Lulu Lake
Tal Tal Peak
Tingel Island[/details]

And that’s with only 4 towers worth of map opened. I imagine there’s far more across the continent.


In years lol.

Got it now tho lol.


amiibo function for botw


That video reminded me. Does the game feel the need to tell you what pick up items do every time you boot the game and up and start playing again? That shit really drove me nuts.
