The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

this is Nintendo's attempt at 'modernizing' Zelda into an open-world game; looks equally inspired by Elder Scrolls, Shadow of the Colossus, and maybe a bit of Minecraft, plus the puzzles are based on a physics engine which i think is also new territory for Nintendo. supposedly out sometime next year on Wii U and also as a launch title for their still-mysterious new console. it's a big enough departure for the series that i think it deserves a thread.

trailer here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rPxiXXxftE
plus there's lots of gameplay demos from E3 on their youtube channel

i'm cautiously excited, Nintendo hasn't made a game of this style or scale before so there's a lot that could go wrong, but on the other hand, filling out the world with tons of little secrets to find has always been a strength of this series

ciderpress, Friday, 17 June 2016 15:07 (four years ago) link

Yeah, cautiously excited. I don't think open-world is necessarily a better game structure, but it's time for the series to do something different.

jmm, Friday, 17 June 2016 15:24 (four years ago) link

More important than just making it open world is telling the story in a different way - and I love how they talk about you unearthing the story in pieces - no backstory unload at the beginning - and in whatever order your journey around the world defines. Super curious what they'll do with NPCs and towns, which they said specifically were kept out of the demo area.

The visual style is perfect.

100s of mini dungeons litter the world, apparently. Big dungeons still in.

Of course 'modernizing' in this case means going back to the structure of the original Zelda.

One of the few games announced recently that I'm looking forward to.

My favourite Zelda was Ocarina, but I also loved all the 2D games on the handhelds. I'm hoping this is going to relight that love and joy I had playing those games.

This was the only game that made me excited in E3 week.

this game does look incredible! at first i was kind of underwhelmed by the graphics. but i kept watching and have come to really like the art direction.

the gameplay changes all sound 100% up my alley. every 3D Zelda has been too hand-holdy for me.

i'm getting a strong Shadow of the Colossus or Souls vibe here. hoping it's for real. this looks like it will be worth the wait!

imo, this game is good

art, Saturday, 4 March 2017 02:47 (three years ago) link

not playing on the switch, the wiiu version is still pretty and i am really into the vibe of this. i am interested to see if new mechanics/interaction with the environment exist once you sail off the plateau. i still don't know why i keep picking up springs and screws. it took 3 hours before i got my first rupees and as of yet i haven't had the chance to use them. this is a very different zelda game but i think, at least just through the first hours, it is a good one.

art, Saturday, 4 March 2017 02:52 (three years ago) link

It's still unavailable on Amazon (uk), which is probably just as well for me as I'm broke

Noticed this in a review over there, although I can't verify how accurate it is:

Differences Wii U version compared to Switch:

The core experience is the same just some technical issues that doesn't make it the definitive version of the game like:
-Slightly lower resolution
-Slower loading. Dying can result in 5-10second loading screen which is maybe half of that or less on the Switch version
-Lower Audio Quality
-Requires a mandatory 3gb install

Overall if you can deal with the loading times for the most part, you are essentially getting the same experience.

PressAnarchyToContinue (Ste), Saturday, 4 March 2017 09:49 (three years ago) link

once you get the hang of the controls, which are unwieldy because your main weapon is actually a cell phone that you need to figure out how to use, it's really fun. be ready to die like 5,000 times.

erry red flag (f. hazel), Sunday, 5 March 2017 08:35 (three years ago) link

i keep outlining big posts about this game that i end up retracting because i don't want to spoil things. i can't shut up about this. the mechanics in this game are some of the most interesting and well executed of anything i have played. interacting with the environment in combat, travel, or regular survival is deeply satisfying. the story is compelling and still pretty mysterious even 5-10 hours in. if you have a wiiu i think this game is worth every penny. it might actually end up being the best game on the platform, but for now i won't make that claim, though i kind of really want to.

art, Sunday, 5 March 2017 13:32 (three years ago) link

im watching someone play this on youtube NO COMMENTARY (key search term) and it seems insanely good very soothing vibes and all the game play looks very intricate and thought out and makes sense, only kinda lol game standard off note is the guy chugging apples in the middle of a battle to regain heath, maybe a lil too much wandering around the woods then just fighting three pig monsters, also a lot of talking to villagers, but maybe that all works within the spacious flow of the game

i like his style, too. he takes his sweet ass time wandering around, taking pictures of things, charging straight into battles, spending 3 minutes trying to climb a mountain for no reason.

maybe eventually twitch people talking constantly and giving shoutouts to new subscribers will become faux pas like instagram filters

Karl Malone, Sunday, 5 March 2017 18:15 (three years ago) link

the trick is to find ppl with smaller viewerbases who either dont have subscribers yet or just dont do the whole twitch memeing thing

ciderpress, Sunday, 5 March 2017 18:18 (three years ago) link

the constant shoutouts are obvs intolerable, the narration + pip generally i can understand in context but it obvs it kills any sort of aesthetic or engrossing experience, like if u want a sitting around playing games w pals type session then fine but if youre looking to lose yrself in the beauty of hyrule or maybe take a nap while doing so its a non starter

lag∞n, Sunday, 5 March 2017 18:24 (three years ago) link

like if u want a sitting around playing games w pals type session then fine

i want the sitting around with a very relaxed pal session. like maybe 20 minutes go by without a word, then they pick up a rock and underneath it is an item, and they say "...sapphire!" and then nothing again for the following 20 minutes

i just got to hateno village. i've procured two horses, visited 14 shrines so far, and i've gotten fairly good at bow/arrow. i am enjoying this game immensely, but eight hours in it feel like i'm just bumbling the heck around. the game insists that i shouldn't be worried about melee weapons, but i break all of the good ones and i'm currently stuck with a rusty axe and whatever clubs fall from the moblins i occasionally explode.

gear impermanence is something that is hard to get used to, but eventually you embrace. wearing through a weapon is a great opportunity for a free critical hit when you throw it right in a monster's face because it's about to break.

i'm also speculating that unbreakable weapons will be attainable at some point, though i'm assuming only at a pretty advanced point in the game. i just got access to a weapon that i can have repaired after it breaks, though it requires a trip to a specific NPC, so some permanence does come along eventually.

art, Sunday, 5 March 2017 23:01 (three years ago) link

I think the gear impermanence is bad design. I run away from fights because weapon rationing is so tedious, thus the entire game mechanic of fancy swordplay, which they spend a lot of time in-game training you on and encouraging... just never happens.

:)

Fujibayashi and his team built a prototype of Breath of the Wild. They put together a starting area with a small field and a handful of trees, then stuck rupees all across the world, hiding them in places that the development team thought Miyamoto and Aonuma might explore. Then Fujibayashi presented their demo to the two Nintendo elder statesmen.

“We put rupees at the top of the tree to let them know that this is something we’re taking into account, but I didn’t tell them,” Fujibayashi said. “All I did was say, ‘Here, play the game.’ So the first thing [Miyamoto] did was start climbing, and he climbed the tree, and once he was able to do that and see that he can go anywhere within this small field, he got how this game will play out and that’s how I presented it to him.”

Then they watched and waited. And watched. And waited.

“When we first presented this to Mr. Miyamoto, he spent about an hour just climbing trees,” Fujibayashi said. “We left little treats like rupees on the trees, but we also left other things in other places we thought he might go. But he just kept climbing trees. Up and down. And so we got to the point where we go, ‘Do you want to look at other stuff?’ But he just kept on going. Once [he] got out of the Shrine of Resurrection, he spent an hour just within a 25-50 meter radius outside of that cave just climbing trees.”

It really, really is. Just completed my first 'Divine Beast' dungeon, and really loving it. It's hard, but doesn't feel unfair. I planned on going to bed right after the divine beast bit last night, then ended up doing another shrine, then activating a tower, wandering a bit, another shrine... etc.

oh yeah I remember the Wii for sure. was pretty into the whole deal back then, iirc mrs. aero was trying to order it from her workplace while I was doing the same thing at home, doing a bunch of "it looks like it's going through! fuck...no, price went up!" shit. now I'm old though one huge advantage of being old is like oh there's a new deal? cool I'll get one maybe. oh I can't get it for six months? cool who gives a fuck maybe I'll buy it in six months or maybe I won't care then, all the same really *takes nap*

i stumbled in my way into the zora domain. lizards keep zapping me with wands. i feel like i'm massively underleveled/underprepared for its challenges. hell, i feel massively underleveled/underprepared at all times. i am distracted by taking photos of mushrooms, exploding every rock i see, collecting monster parts to no particular purpose, and my progress in the main quest occurs in fits and starts. there are all these little hints of bigger sidequests (reuniting lovers? finding special bugs?) that i am missing because i am careening through hyrule like a damn loon. i am constantly busting into areas filled with super-strong bad guys that can one-hit kill me, or falling off slippery mountain peaks, or getting chopped up in shrines. and the blood moon mechanic is legit frightening. the whole experience is weird and excellent –– like, i am delighted to run around but i am in constant-fear of insta-death. also, i misunderstood the function of the amiibo, and i gave myself a horse while i was on top of a tower. poor epona, all alone and nothing to do but jump to deah. :(

if I had to sum up the game mega quickly in the most reductive way possible and that doesn't actually sum up how fantastic it is, i'd say this is basically Ni No Kuni goes Soulsbourne.
which is probably everything i've ever wanted from a game?

jamiesummerz may have just sold me a switch (once i get my financial/time life rebalanced)

removed from the rain drops and drop tops of experience (ulysses), Thursday, 9 March 2017 15:04 (three years ago) link

i guess the souls comparison mainly comes from the fact that:

1. there's very little handholding, you're rewarded for curiosity, exploration and experimentation. i'm 15 hours in and only just worked out that sometimes money is hidden under rocks, that I can make a horse more friendly by patting its head, that i can parry projectiles. etc.
2. just like the second enemy i met in yarnham, i got wrecked to death by the second trash mob enemy i met in zelda
3. that GAME OVER red on black screen is very YOU DIED. and i've seen it a bunch.

jamiesummerz, Thursday, 9 March 2017 16:23 (three years ago) link

also love the fact that after an hour or so, i could very quickly switch to play this with zero hud (other than seeing hearts on top left)... only time i need to know more than what the gameplay itself shows me (how much noise i'm making, how visible i am, link shivering shows me it's cold, etc) is when I need to check my map every now and then.

also, climbing a tower to reveal more of the map reveals noting other than topography. if you find somrthing and want to remember it, you tag that map yourself with an icon. no assassins creed jumble of side quest icons - you find that shit yourself through exploring.

aaaanyway, great game.
