I was absolutely loving this game until I got to Zoras domain.

Firstly, I'm sent to get shock arrows and at no poimt does the game explain that you bypass the cut scene by sneaking into the area, the cut scene moves link to a specific location and its a reasonable assumption that this is what you're supposed to do. Secondly, the bit to get inside Rutu requires you to use normal arrows and degradable weapons in an area that they cannot be replenished. This is the type of abysmal game design that gets overlooked in the Souls series and apparently it has been here as well.

Done all four beasts and 90 shrines. More than ready to take on Ganon but I can't bear to do it yet. Don't want it to end.

I've been putting it off as well, but I believe beating Ganon unlocks some stuff for completionists. I've cleared all the Shrines, maxed out all my armour and beaten all the side quests so I'm going to head over to the Castle smash Ganon's teeth in and then wait for DLC Pack #1.

Looking forward to the Korok mask.

That's exactly where I'm at! For me though, I feel like I've run out of things to do and just can't be arsed to go and beat Ganon. (I have taken him on once totally by accident whilst wandering around the castle exploring. Needless to say I was completely unprepared and promptly got slaughtered...)

You can use stasis on the ice.

Use Cryosis on the ice to shatter it.

It's ok Hime, I made the same mistake. I spent half the game forgetting the runes.... I used fire arrows on the ice. Doh!

Jesus, I really hate the control scheme on this game.
And controlling the camera is so difficult.

Problem I have with the view is that it's too close to the action. It gives me motion sickness, similar to but not as bad a playing FPS (can't play them at all). So not being able to zoom out far enough makes it difficult to play the game very long.

I think the sheer amount of things make it difficult to memorise what does what. Even when I reached hour 1,234,845 I was still selecting the wrong thing from time to time. In fact I even noticed people in the treehouse doing it during E3.

Cant say I struggled with the camera much though. Outside of my stupid dying gamepad. :x :(

I have this in some of the boss battles, the camera wouldn't move fast enough or go quite where I wanted and j would subsequently die because I could not see where the strawberry floater was to shoot him or whatever.

Was made better though when I found the focus button to sort of focus in a target.

I don't think there is any one thing in the game that you're supposed to do, that's partly what sets it apart and makes it so well designed

Focus button? I used to rely on the L-trigger focus thing to orient me more during boss battles but it doesn't seem to work the same as previous Zelda's, or maybe I'm doing something wrong.
