Anyone pick up their copy yet?


I have, just the Wii U version. Not interested in the Switch just yet.

Reminds me a lot of Skyrim, but with better level designing and with a Miyazaki spin to it.

Considering it if it will make my Wii U purchase worth it.

It really, really does. So much to discover.

This will be the only game I will ever buy for the Wii U lolz (my copy of Smash and Splatoon came as apart of the system).

I'm trying to keep expectations as contained though. The reviews are a bit bonkers and remind me of Super Mario Galaxy, a very enjoyable game that was given too much praise.

Waiting and buying it for the Switch is almost entirely worth it just for the Switch's sleep mode. You can pick and start playing Zelda within 4 seconds, which makes you so much more likely to play (as silly as that sounds).

I haven't enjoyed a game as much as Breath of the Wild in a very long time. The amount of sheer detail is astonishing.

I'm over 30 hours into it, and only have three regions (Faron, Necluda, and Lanayru) on my map. I haven't even made it to a Divine Beast yet, although I'm heading toward one soon -- the road to the Zora Domain was quite challenging! So far, I've completed/located 23/25 shrines; collected 49 Korok Seeds; and unlocked 3/12 memories.

Spoiler: show
I recently bought a house in Hateno and am working on fully furnishing it, too, so I'm scouring mountains, caves, cliffs, etc., and battling various Talus' for tons of rare ore. I've upgraded my inventory as much as possible after seeing Hetsu on two occasions so far, but the storage the house provides is very useful. And besides, you can actually own a house in Hyrule.

Just started it finally. Wanted to finish Horizon Zero Dawn before the next adventure. Loving the cell shaded graphics and the music.

I'm on the Camel boss (2nd for me), but like most combat encounters it got frustrating and I left to find more shrines. :funny: The combat is my only big complaint about the game (can a nigga get a roll button?) , but everything else is amazing. It might beat Portal 2 as the all time best Puzzle Game.

The watercolor graphics look incredible even in handheld mode. Ive also not had any issues with desyncing joycons.

Yeah, the only parts of the map I haven't been to are Death Mountain and whatever is in the north west. I even climbed to the top of Mount Lanaryu and found a corrupted dragon who gave me a shrine as thanks for feeeing its spirit. Now that was a fun encounter. Instead of dodging, its all about slow motion mid air bow shooting. :thumbsup:

There is a shrine in Kakariko Village that teaches you the art of dodging

Yeah but I don't like how you have to be locked on. It makes any encounter with more than one enemy annoying and I won't spoil the camel boss for you, but you will understand when you get to it. :funny:

I did beat that mofo though. :thumbsup:

I'd also love to be able to swap the crouch and run buttons. I've died so many times from accidently crouching at the worst time.

But for every bad thing, there's a great thing to counter like discovering that I can mount bears.

Post Re: Zelda:Breath of the Wild
This game is perfection.

There's just so much to accomplish - I myself still have around 30 shrines to go after around 80-100 hours. I want to save the last Divine Beast as long as possible now.

And extra DLC this summer?? That's kinda exciting!

Post Re: Zelda:Breath of the Wild
As I mentioned almost a month ago, I haven't enjoyed a game this much in years, many years.

After ~70 hours, I've accomplished:

86/120 Shrines.
121/900 Korok Seeds (I initially thought there were "just" 300 and felt proud when I found my 100th... Nope! Haha.)
3/4 Divine Beasts (like MGKC, I'm delaying the last one - mine is Vah Rudania - while I explore more of the world.)
11/12 Memories (the last one I need is in or around Hyrule Castle).
54 Side Quests (dunno how many in total there are).

I'm not going to defeat Vah Rudania until I find the remaining shrines, and then I'll go to Hyrule Castle for the last memory before challenging Calamity Ganon (I feel I'll be kind of overpowered by that point, but oh well). I figure I'll be near the 100 hour mark then. Trying to get all 900 Korok Seeds is going to take a bit more time, to say the least.

There's DLC planned for this Summer (Hard Mode and a Cave of Trials) AND later this Fall/Winter ( a new "dungeon" and original story). Since there isn't a traditional dungeon in Breath of the Wild, it'll be interesting to see what they mean by "dungeon".

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is actually selling better than the system it runs on, somehow.

Quote:
NPD group and Nintendo, report that while the Switch sold 906,000 units in the US in March, the Switch version of Breath of the Wild sold "more than 925,000 units." That's the first instance we can recall where a piece of software has a reported attach rate that's actually higher than 100 percent.
