BOTW but in a dungeon with a hookshot

I would like to posit in a thread where people are justifiably praising New Donk City that BOTW's Hyrule Castle may be the greatest game scenario yet devised

elaborate!

do you mean the fact that the final boss and boss level is just *there* the whole time for you to attempt when you feel you're ready?

voodoo chili, Wednesday, 31 March 2021 17:10 (three years ago) link

after getting the master sword and the divine beasts i laboriously climbed and glided my way to the front door of the castle, unknowingly completely bypassing the entire interior and buildup to the calamity ganon fight. it was awesome and memorable. was totally surprised when i walked in and it popped off.

but the new donk city festival is a staggeringly constructed work of art/set piece. different types of experiences, equally concentrated video game pleasure

climbing and gliding were my favorite parts of that game, you did it right.

the fact that you can just go kill the main boss in a half an hour is really cool, you play rest of the game because you want to

I tried going straight from the Great Plateau to Ganon on a recent playthrough and got my butt whooped

Oh, I just meant that the size and detail of Hyrule Castle-- which was especially "concentrated with content" compared to the rest of a rather breezy and spacious game-- felt like such a true "final level" and also a satisfying culmination of decades of versions of the place. The closest analog I can think of design-wise is the palace in Ico

New Donk City was fine, it felt like GTA in a snowglobe with Gap commercial big band accompaniment

flamboyant goon tie included, Wednesday, 31 March 2021 19:17 (three years ago) link

the level itself is middle-of-the-pack for odyssey (wooded and luncheon are kings of kingdoms) but the Gap Band is on fire imo

adam, Wednesday, 31 March 2021 19:51 (three years ago) link

the botw hyrule castle theme is also one of the great pieces of zelda music, i believe, and that's a rarified list

voodoo chili, Wednesday, 31 March 2021 19:52 (three years ago) link

if Odyssey were soundtracked by the Gap Band it would have won my vote

eisimpleir (crüt), Wednesday, 31 March 2021 20:31 (three years ago) link

i like new donk more than luncheon but agree that wooded kingdom is the best in that game

ciderpress, Wednesday, 31 March 2021 20:38 (three years ago) link

in large part because its the one that feels most like a 64 level

ciderpress, Wednesday, 31 March 2021 20:38 (three years ago) link

I really enjoyed Bowser's Kingdom in Odyssey

It is interesting to me that I have only vague recollections of Snow Kingdom and Lost Kingdom, i.e., especially compared to pretty-much everywhere in BOTW. I remember every labyrinth and beach from BOTW, the only unmemorable part of that game was that weird beachside town where it felt kinda un-adventurous.

I'm a big Galaxy 1/2 stan and idk Odyssey's levels were just so un-inventive... they felt like throwbacks to 64 but without the magic of 64

flamboyant goon tie included, Wednesday, 31 March 2021 20:46 (three years ago) link

idk I definitely had a moment where I tripped over a moon on the.. moon, and said ffs these moons are basically Yugoslavian dinars

BOTW is the better complete package, but Odyssey has better individual moments. Especially when you possess Bowser in the finale and it plays that sick power-pop song

ciderpress, Thursday, 1 April 2021 14:05 (three years ago) link

this thread is starting to feel unwelcoming and in fact even unsafe for mario and mario fans, mods

lag∞n, Thursday, 1 April 2021 14:09 (three years ago) link

Fear not! On the third day, Mario will rise again in glory

feed me with your chips (zchyrs), Thursday, 1 April 2021 14:11 (three years ago) link

wait, I'm a day off. ffs

feed me with your chips (zchyrs), Thursday, 1 April 2021 14:11 (three years ago) link

you publicly predicted a resurrection but were 1 day off. everybody is focusing on how you were 1 day off. nobody congratulates you for calling the resurrection!

Oh wow yeah I forgot about the final boss fight in Odyssey, that was amazing. Prob my favourite Bowser since Yoshi's Island

flamboyant goon tie included, Thursday, 1 April 2021 15:09 (three years ago) link

the bowser escape song gives me "kids in america" vibes, not the kim wilde version but the muffs' version that was in clueless

voodoo chili, Thursday, 1 April 2021 20:56 (three years ago) link
