Master Mode, 13 hearts, no stamina upgrade.
What a fucking nightmare.
What a fucking nightmare.
Don't feel like you need to play this game. It is not garbage but it is truly over rated.So yeah... i'm necroing this thread...
I have tried starting BoTW at least 4 times since buying my Switch shortly after it's launch and every time I lost interest for a couple reason... too big of a open world that's mostly full of nothing which in-turn turned into too much running from area to area. I also hated the game and still dislike this mechanic; which is that weapons break. I am loving the game now, but really? I shoot like 5 arrows and the damn bow breaks? Or I hit a monster a couple times and a sword made out of solid steel breaks? I know the game was not going for realism, but it can get annoying. I do get weapons regularly that it's not much of an issue to me, but I still hate the mechanic b/c if adds absolutely nothing to the game instead of constantly having to decide now which shittier weapon do I want to drop for a slightly less shittier weapon. I also don't like how nowhere does it show you how much life a particular weapon has unless it's blinking red which is bullshit.
...aaanyway this went off topic because I originally wanted to say how I just realized how about 10 hours in or however long i've been playing that I haven't been using horses at all. I've literally been running and gliding everywhere. I actually don't mind it b/c it gives me the opportunity to explore more, but how do I better utilize the horses? I know in the beginning I had to snag one and I used it for a while, but I must have gotten off at some point and left it b/c I could never find it again. Pressing down on the d-pad Link whistles for what I am guessing is a horse, but one never comes. There are horse stables all over where I can "check in" a horse, but I figure that's so I can use that horse anywhere? Like if I go to a new section that horse will be in the stable? What if I get off the horse and leave will my check-in horse still be in the stable, or do I need to bring horse after horse into the stable in order to always have a horse in the stables if for some reason I get separated from one?
The most I think about it the more I think how useless horses are b/c some of the areas i've gone to to find temples, or climbing to castles, or going to mountain tops to look for Korok seeds I would definitely leave many horses behind so I am not sure about the whole horse situation.
Also that weird thing you give Korok seeds to has disappeared after the first I think 2 times I went back to it to expand my inventory but I have no idea where it went to. Anyone know where I can find that tree looking thing with the maracas?
I totally get where you're coming from. Cooking at least can be skipped if you press the X button... as soon as you start cooking you press X and it skips to whatever concoction you created. The looting and dropping stuff gets really old too. Like a item on the ground I can't see what score it is all it says is if it's better or worse than the current weapon I have equipped, but say I think I have a shittier weapon in my inventory that I want to swap the one on the ground with I have to go in my inventory, select that item to see it's score, and then drop it, go back to the game and pick up the weapon I now have a slot for, go into my inventory, find the weapon and if it's higher damage than the one I just dropped then great, however there has been a instance where the weapon I dropped was still more powerful than the new one on the ground. The problem is that the pop-up you get when you pick up a new weapon with it's damage score and description only happens when you first find a new weapon.I ran everywhere once, then warped and ran for the rest of the game. Never used horses, never really did cooking.
I thought all the interaction, dialogue, and needed button clicking really took away from the open world ambiance of the game. If you loot a mob, it should auto drop a weapon for the one you are looting if it's better... like how is that not a thing. Spent way to long in dialogue boxes dropping shit for such a wonderful game. Why does it take so long to stable a horse, one button and go away. Why do some dumb little dance when i'm cooking?
Nothing is ever perfect.
This guy bounces around a bit so you may need to Google it until he makes his resting place in the Lost Woods. I think his second place is on a road left of Hylia River. He's just north from one of those horse stables.Also that weird thing you give Korok seeds to has disappeared after the first I think 2 times I went back to it to expand my inventory but I have no idea where it went to. Anyone know where I can find that tree looking thing with the maracas?
Damn I wish I knew about this before I started. Oh well I am used to it at this point, but it keeps the game from being great in my opinion.I found out recently that the emulator version of the game has mods that allow you to disable durability, so I may actually give that a try because I enjoyed basically everything else...the durability mechanic was game breaking for me.
I have not been able to get into this game like everyone in my family has. Although it is a ton of fun to watch and help with the shrines and divine beasts. I may have 3 hours total while my wife and kids have spent a lot of time on it. It looks like a very in-depth fantastic game.How? I've played about 15 hours, and the game just seems to get monotonous. Maybe I'm missing something.
Was that the first puzzle you've seen like that? There's been a few of them I've ran across and solved them all so far. You just have to use your telekinesis power to move the only brick that's compatible with it into the same pattern as the other complete set of bricks. Sometimes it involves moving a brick from one stack to another stack too. But yeah, that's for a Korok seed.
