The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Recommended Posts

Recorded some of this at 4k 60fps maxed out settings (of what settings there are, anyway). Fully hooked again, it looks amazing and plays incredible. No other game like it, greatest of all time.

 Using Cemu on pc then? It's a stuttering mess on my pc. I have a legit copy(on the way), I just needed to see what all the fuss was about before I bought it.

When did you last try? Look up a setup guide and get all your options sorted out correctly.  It runs excellently for me on my PC, and is actually an incredibly optimized emulator at this point in time.

 

But I guess if you have a really old PC build, there's no helping that.

I'm on a 6700k @ 4.2ghz 16GB 1080 8GB, did everything in a vid from BSOD for the latest Cemu but it still stutters and freezes just like he sais in the video.

 

I'm not bothered though, I rather play it on my switch first then maybe try Cemu again later.

Said it before, and I'll say it again. The 60FPS 4k graphics look so clinical and soulless.

 

Give me the stuttering switch version any day of the week.

This is really good, why didn't anyone tell me?

 

Really getting into it now.  Only one Guardian thing in.

 

Tell us about your adventures - hearing people's tales in Hyrule is amazing.

I killed Lionel the centaur up on the mountain instead of just raffing his shock arrows, which I was pretty pleased with myself about, wore out my best sword doing it but the Zora keep banging on about him as if he still there.

 

I love Zora’s domain though, the mission to get there and the ambience/music makes it feel like a Vegas casino but in a nice way :)

I played a ton of this over xmas, almost too much, whilst the wife and mother in law watched crap TV and I haven't touched it since. 

 

As much as I like it, its maybe a bit too "empty" and enemy variety is a bit lacking. Also, horses are a pain in the arse, especially when they go runnIng headlong off of a cliff. I end up traversing most areas by foot.

 

The Shrines I have completed are fun though, especially those that reward you for simply getting to them. There is one to the north east of the map in a labyrinth, which I cheated by climbing the walls and finding the center spot that way. Another one I did by scaling a huge pillar with just about the right amount of stamina. The feeling of achievement was immense.

 

One question, are there more than enough shrines to completely max out health and stamina?

Ah yeah I’ve not found horses very useful really, but maybe I’m doing it wrong. I end up dumping them when I need to get over some bit of rocks or water and there they stay for ages.

 

I love the game though, is amazing.

 

Is there any shortcut to “replace” weapon? I.e. just pick up one and drop the one you’re holding?

 

Also are there any shortcuts to pages in the inventory? I have to scroll through a lot.

Just throw the one you're holding with R and pick up the new one?

Yeah that’s what I’ve been doing, though it usually takes a couple of goes because I don’t hold it down long enough, and I’ve scared a few NPCs by inadvertently aiming at them :lol: Also if you get a weapon in a chest you have to retrigger the animation after its told you you’re full, just feels like a lot of faffing.

 

It’d be nice if you just hold down A to force the swap.

So Over the last few days I started off in the desert, and went to infiltrate the base of those Yiga Clan arseholes.  After defeating their leader and taking back the reward to the Lady boss in the desert I decided I wanted to do a few more shrines and exploration before meeting her again to tackle the big camel thing causing all the trouble round there.

 

I Have a few marked locations for towers to the north so I headed that way.  On the way I manage to bump into a few shrines so manage to clear those out.

 

I came to the tower just to the west of the castle, the one which has it's base in a lake and a few swimming lizards and those floating ghostly dudes with the electro-sticks.  I took out a few of the lizards and one of the floating dudes.  I'm not finding it east though, and I'm wondering if I should have used my freezing water block trick to get closer to them.

 

After taking out a few a blood moon appeared which brought them all back to life, so I decided to leave it and come back.

 

I then manage to stumble across a couple more shrines and end up with eight ball things, so I can get two upgrades.  I also have loads of Korok seeds so I'd like to trade some of those in.

 

I decide to make my way to Hyrule Forest for the first time, so I travelled to the north of the castle and then East.  I tried to glide in, but the super spooky cloud put me back on the other side of the moat.

 

I made my way around through the entrance to the forest, and try to make my way through the lost woods via the torches.  Eventually I give up and make my way out with my tail between my legs.

 

Finally, I take a horse from the stable and ride all the way to Kakariko Village to boost my stamina wheel twice.

 

I'm now heading back to the desert to try to tackle this big Camel thing...

Been playing this the past month or so. Really enjoying it, what with all the exploration and secrets hidden away everywhere. My only gripe is that it rains too damn often, meaning I cant climb when I want to - I speculated that Ganon has the power to control the weather, just to prevent Link getting anywhere :lol:

I didn’t enjoy the shooting the camel’s feet with bomb arrows while riding a seal bit. Could have been excellent fun, but staying at the right speed to remain in the shielded area didn’t feel great. 

 

The Camel itself was good, managed to get to the boss in one sitting where as the Zora one I did in about a year :D

 

not killed the boss in there yet though.

I found a way of making rafting less slow & cumbersome, but it turns out that it's been known about for ages.

 

 

Still, i missed it, & I find that the metal treasure chests that are found in pretty much every body of water work just as well as metal weapons.

Well bugger me. That will help immensely going forward. I've avoided using a raft due to never having a korok leaf to hand. I'd started using cryonis to "push" the raft about to get the underwater chests, but this will be a lot quicker and less clunky.

I can’t think I ever found an occasion when I needed to use the rafts in the whole game, they seemed pretty redundant to me.

 

Having said that, I didn’t discover Necluda until quite late on in my playthrough.

It was because they were so clunky that I was unwilling to explore with them.  Using the Magnesis method however, I've checked out a couple of lakes & I'm planning to explore along the coastlines.  Just make sure you stop occasionally to "scan" the bottom of the body of water looking for those telltale Purple outlines of chests, & also keep an eye out for collections of gulls circling around, as its means there's something there too.

I'm having such a good time with this.  Completely invested now.

 

I've cleared three divine beasts with death mountain completely unexplored and about three towers still to unlock.  I've just got to the second ancient lab in the north east and lit the blue flame.

 

I also recently tackled that poor dragon on the mountain.

 

Oh my stamina wheel is maxed out now too, I think I've done about 70 shrines.

Sounds like you're just warming up then ;)

 

It's had a renaissance in my house. First the kids got really into it a few weeks back (they are allowed to use the switch on weekends) and then my wife (who never plays games) fell in love with it. All the attention has reignited my passion in it and I'm now mopping up all the side quests and finally completing the DLC stuff. I reckon I have about 250 hours on it at least now. Wonderful game.

I had no idea about this but ruddy love stuff like that.

 

This game :wub:
