Legend of Zelda: Breath of the wild


#1699

So many cool mechanics in this game I remember:

  • electrocution enemies who are stood in water by firing shock arrows into the water
  • lighting fires, not being able to if it rains but then succeeding after lighting the fire under an overhang so that it’s shaded from rain
  • having a giant moblin get frustrated at me, pick up the nearest enemy and actually use it as a weapon by throwing it at me
  • killing the floating wizards in one hit using the opposite element
  • riding a deer!

Hate those floating wizard pricks


#1701

But once you learn the trick above they are the weakest of all.


#1702

Fuck I just want to Zelda but instead I’m watching my son play Lego City.


#1703

Oh yeah, forgot this one. Using magnesia on a large object and swinging it into one of the derelict guardians, knocking it over and revealing ancient treasure underneath.

Likewise, creating an ice block underneath a derelict guardian sat in a puddle


#1704

Killing guardians in botw

Equip a guardian shield. There’s an audio cue of when to parry. Just hit the parry button on the Audio cue and it will reflect it back. Just practice for a bit and you’ll get it

This happened to me for the first time last night. Giggled like a prick when he missed. Haha.


#1706

I play on mute 100% of the time. Handheld play while watching Shite On Telly ftw.


#1707

DM me.


#1708

So you’re playing while watching tv and wondering why you don’t get the mechanics?

Definitely the games fault


#1709

Steady on bud, I’m saying there is shite on telly and I play with it on mute. I’m playing the game, my wife is watching shit. Also, let’s not even touch on the fact that I can’t play video games in headphones due to being deaf in my left ear.

Rush to judgement is a bit much.


#1710

Nope your not playing it properly. It’s your fault not zeldas


#1711

Right pal. Cheers for the help and input.


#1712

#1713

Don’t think I ever even saw a bear in the game. And I played it for 140 hours and covered at least most of the map


#1714

I fought one right at the beginning when on the treasure quest at the first stable on the road to Kakariko.


#1715

Remember trying to board that skeletal horse and getting blacklisted by the stable. Class.


#1716

Yeah they didn’t like it when I tried to board the Mountain King either


#1717

Oooo THANKS!!!


#1718

Mountain King fair enough as it’s a spirit and Iwata tribute. Would love an update to have stalhorse and bear able to go to stables though.
But obviously the one update the game is very sorely lacking: the ability to pet the dogs!
