I tend to only play one game at a time and have Yakuza Kiwami 2 and Spiderman on Pre-order.


I think that's entirely down to you and your gaming habits. I know i wouldn't be able to, but many others say that it is perfect to play for 10 minutes before booting up a different game. For me, any game that has "substance" to it would have to be played in isolation. Supporting games would have to be things in the realm of Warioware / Rhythm Heaven etc.

That being said, you could leave the game for months and soon get back in to the swing of it. You just might have to accept it wont be your "main" for a period of time.

I love how right after starting the game you have the objective "defeat Ganon" while thinking most of the time, "hey, this isn't so bad".


Errr, what about the ending are we agreeing is crap?

I've personally found it fine to play around other games, the way the game is set up I think it doesn't really make that much of a difference how long you have. Only got a short amount of time? Do a shrine or 2 or climb a tower, got longer? Just do the same but more shrines and exploring. Side quests don't suffer either as quite a few of them are fetch quests. Even though the game is huge it is quite easy to pick up and play in short or long play sessions.

Saying that when I first played it on Wii U I was more or less exclusively playing this from its release till when I completed it towards the end of May 2017.

...I thought the ending was alright... :oops:

(Don’t get me wrong, it didn’t blow my mind. But for some reason, a small personal ending worked after all that SCALE and SUBSTANCE. Can definitely see why others would loathe it though.)

I don't mean that so harshly. Crap for me is equivalent to meh. The gigantic boss is cool but like every boss in the game and more recent zelda games it lacks any challenge. So it doesn't really match the scale of the game.

I would have liked to see the game world post Ganon, it always bugs me in open world games when you cant see the world after the story is complete and instead you have to go back to a checkpoint before the boss. I know theres a story reason why this would get rid of enemies or whatever but Id still like to see the world after the big bad is gone, I dont have to see it rebuilt fully or anything but some small changes to reflect the end of the bad times would be nice.

Paper Mario and the Thousand-Year Door did that. Another reason why it's one of the best games ever.

Hey remember in Link's Awakening when you beat the final boss and could finally explore the island at peace and talk to all the friends you had made

I think it's doable to play in small chunks. Not necessarily all the time - you'll still want some longer sessions thrown in as well, but I think the game will suck you in in that respect anyway.

What I would say is, make sure you use the map functions well - this will reduce the amount of 'where the strawberry float was I?' time you spend. You can leave coded map pins when you find things you want to go back to later - come up with a system and use them liberally. As an example, one of them is a little rupee symbol and I use it to mark every time I find valuable rocks that need breaking.

Started this properly today. Just finished the last shrine to get the paraglider (I hope). Is there a correct way to make it to the shrine in the cold mountain area? I just lit a torch and ran for it. Were you meant to get the warm clothes off the old boi by making his recipe?

You can do that yea. Whether you want to call it the 'proper' way or not is up to you.

There is no ‘correct way’. BotW is chuffing amazing, and that’s part of it.

Do enemies not drop rupees any more? Made it to Hateno and I've still only got 2 rupees from selling something to buy a carrot.

There are some enemies that do, but yeah, just pick up everything. Non-weapon slots are unlimited, so pick up everything and sell what you don't need.

Thanks guys! I've already been trying to pick up as much as I can, so I'll flog everything and see if I can buy something to keep me warm. Just found my first memory! Zelda has a weird voice.

Is there a way of viewing your camera photos in fullscreen without the weird filter the game applies? Shame the game doesn't save the images you take directly to the SD card.
