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


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.


It only does it once, when it’s an item you already have, it just has the name of it. Just entered the first dungeon. Found a Guardian dungeon before the main one but it didn’t open.

Already broke the wood cutters axe :frowning: I’m now using a skeleton arm. It keeps moving it’s fingers, so it looks like it’s tickling my ass.


Only thing so far regarding game play that bothers me is when you’ll be on the side of a mountain when suddenly…it starts raining and you keep slipping down until your stamina depletes. So you have to warp out of there and wait for the rain to stop before you try again. Happens way more often than I’d like.


On that electricity effect… Using electric weapons or getting hit by lightning while standing in a pool of water is a good way to get bodied(or drop some bodies quickly.

Guardians don’t like being shocked, either, by the way.

Also, I just got mauled by a fucking bear… I’ve died more in this game than I have since Zelda II… I fucking love it.

EDIT: Carrying a lot of metal gear is a good way to get fried in a thunderstorm or take extra damage from electric attacks… Take that shit off to not die… and I figured out what a Blood Moon does, I think- It brings back enemies and minibosses you’ve killed, makes them stronger, and if you can kill them again, they drop better items and weapons.


Shit didn’t know it raise the drop rate. Will have to start backtracking.

Those fucking lighting storms are homing god damn turtle shells when you are steel armored out.

I legit just waited one out in a cave because I felt like every strike was on my ass.


The weather having this kind of effect on player on decision is fucking awesome. The idea that I might want to wait out a storm in a game?



So what timeline you guys think this one takes place in? Personally I’m thinking the Zelda 1 timeline.


I’m telling you, man. Nintendo went all out on this game. I see now why they placed so much faith in this game.

[details=Spoiler]I accidentally spoiled myself on the desert area… Holy shit that place is a massive wasteland… Prepare yourself for oppressive heat in the daytime and freezing cold at night- Not even protective clothing can save you- Need those elixirs on deck, yo. Also, SAND SEALS!! Nintendo continues the tradition of taking aquatic animals and making them swim through sand like its water… I love them so fucking much already! Might take a whole fucking day to fully explore it, and even then… Also, lol @ the Lizalfos using actual camouflage to blend in and ambush mofos.

This game is amazing.[/details]


I feel like you can sum up 90% of comments about this game as.
“I was wandering around aimlessly when I found something really cool, then I proceeded to do something really cool and felt real good about myself. I proceeded to immediately get my ass blown out by a random monster on the overworld and felt like an asshole.”
“This game rules.”


Interesting body of water:

Wonder what I’ll find there.
