Hi gang, first post on DiS in ages, but I thought there might be a good BotW thread and you haven't let me down.
I managed to get a Switch on launch day, and some fortuitous time off before I start my new job at the end of the month means I've been able to give this some serious time. Also helped by the fact the Switch is just so god damn playable. Relaxing with the thinly veiled whilst she watches some shit reality TV? Playing the Switch. On the train into town? Playing the Switch. etc.
Have completed three divine beasts . Ten hearts. 2.2 stamina wheels. Opened up all of the map except one more region. Will be kind of sad when I get that tower and there's no more map left to open up.
I fucking love this game. Not sure I've ever enjoyed a game so much. Yes, the frame rate drops occasionally which can be jarring, and the inventory management is maybe not as slick as it could be (I agree that picking up a weapon when your inventory's full should take you to that screen immediately), but the sheer magic of the environment and enjoyment of milling around without anything in particular in mind really makes this unique. Had my biggest "what the fuck?!" moment earlier when I stumbled across the Lord of the Mountain by following a glow in the night sky. Didn't manage to mount it but know what to do next time.
