• Due to datamining of the demo files, substantial leaks are now everywhere. As a reminder, some of these are in-development screenshots and may point to events that aren't going to be in the final game. Some of them are clearly going to be in the game. The TLS stance is this: Any thread which will contain discussion on the leaked images/ details must clearly contain [SPOILERS] within the title. Anything within those threads does not need to be spoiler tagged. Any POST anywhere on the board containing spoilers must be spoiler tagged or it will be removed and warned. Please report this where you see it. Let's try to make sure everyone can still freely post until everyone has a chance to play this game please!

The Legend of Zelda (General)

Geez Louise. 7/10 isn't even a bad score, and I hate how crowded the top of the 1-10 (or 0-10) spectrum has become. Not that throwing a DDOS attack at a website is justified even for genuinely bad scores, of course.

Considering the sheer number of video game reviews these days, it'd be incredible suspicious if any game didn't have at least a couple of mixed reviews, no matter how amazing it is. OPINIONS. They're good.

Hey, I can't find any pics online, what do the Octoroks look like in Breath of the Wild? Anyone know? Or can maybe take a screencap? :awesome:

Thanks Tets! <3

Glad to see they've gone with a cute version, I never liked the OOT/MM designs
 
Many fans already know about this piece of console- and gaming lore, but for me this is the best summary I've found so far of the history between the 64DD and The Legend of Zelda.

I really hope the DLC adds a lot more, like either a prequel set 100 years in the past or post game stuff. The game is pretty light on story... well, what you see. So getting a closer look at the events would be awesome.

Has anyone watched a playthrough of this game where the player isn't a noob? I want to watch someone who is good at the game, but havent found any yet. Even considered getting a capture card and doing a 100% run since most players are so hard to watch.

I like that you can basically do the Legolas move to mount your horse:



After a week of Nier Automata I shall finally return to this game.
Finished one of the proper dungeons...it was a bit underwhelming.
 
An excellent commentary on the flawed game design of the original The Legend of Zelda. I remember the suffering of bombing all those walls and burning all those bushes. The latter which I did...with the BLUE CANDLE. >__<

I think my favorite moment of exploration in BotW was climbing this snowy mountain peak, going around the corner and suddenly
MOTHERFUCKING DRAGON YOOOOOOO



What followed was a battle to rid it of that goopy corruption juice, following it through the sky with the hangglider and such. It was rad :monster:

There are two more dragons in the game and they just majestically and peacefully float about through the sky, it's awesome :monster:

There's so much stuff to discover in this game I honestly think this is the most beautiful open world I've experienced so far. Every part just looks like it's been handcrafted for maximum picturesque beauty :wacky:

I've played over 30 hours so far and I've only finished one story dungeon and uncovered half of the map (uncovered as in been to those Ubisoft map towers, not actually seen 50% of the world yet).

I started a new game and went straight for the castle after leaving the plateau. I now have the best shield in the game and an arsenal of awesome swords to start off my adventure.

Shoot the dragons in the horn for shards (twice) to upgrade your champions tunic.

I just realized you can ride
the frickin skeleton horses. Best game ever :wacky:



(...they die once the sun's up though)

I spent around 60 hours on this now? Still have two dungeons left and not been to the west half of Hyrule at all. :wacky:
I made a small detour into the final dungeon already. It seems pretty manageable at this point.

^Speaking of, how are you liking the 'Can do any dungeon any time you want' aspect of the game? I probably won't get the game for a while but I'm interested in hearing how you and others playing the game here like the changes in this game compared to the rest of the series.

And what's your spoiler-free impression of the story so far?

Finished the game a while ago. What a ride. :monster:
I think I was close to 80 hours when I beat the final boss. Am now over 100 trying to find the last shrines and such.
Underwhelming :P

Story is pretty Zelda in that it isn't really the main draw and pretty basic "here's the evil shit, those are the dungeons you need to visit (or not, literally everything is optional), here's a sword or something, have fun"
The meat of the story is mostly flashbacks of what happened 100 years ago.

I quite liked being able to do anything in any order. Really gives every player a fairly unique experience.
I don't think the sense of adventure and exploration was ever so high in any Zelda game. I'm kinda sad that I've mostly seen everything now. But it took very long to get there so, :awesomonster:


Also: There's a free update now, all audio languages can now be selected from the main menu. Previously you had to change the console's system language (and that would change the text as well).

And the Expansion Pass DLC Pack 1 has been detailed

Trial of the Sword sounds like it could be a fun survival challenge.
Hard Mode as DLC is weird imo and what is described here is kind of underwhelming
The map feature sounds neat.

Overall I'm not rushing to throw my money at this. I really need to know what DLC2 with the story expansion entails.
