I’ve just gone back to this. I had rinsed all the shrines and DLC then started master mode and got to the point I was off the Plateau. I forgot how hard master mode is! Combat is almost pointless in some cases. I like it though, it changes up the whole game. Feels like the vulnerable early days from when I first played the game.

It is great to see other peoples impressions of the first few hours after putting roughly around 250 hours into it. Really brings back my first few hours with the game, wondering where on earth to go (in the end I just ended up following the first few objectives till I got to grips with it) while just loving exploring where ever I wanted to.

Just unlocked central tower, I think I may be getting the hang of the guardian parry! I was using the eye but it’s easier I find to use the sound to judge it, that said I haven’t tried long distance yet.

Pro controller is just so comfy!

I normally go by vision; basically just after the laser starts to come out I hit the parry and that *generally* works from a middling distance
I cant parry for gooseberry fool when it comes to standard enemies tho lmao

The only thing I ever learned to parry was guardian laser beams as well, I got lucky a few times but not consistently, just had to make do with dodging/jumping out of the way.

I found out by accident that you can parry the stones those water octo things spit at you and kill them with it.

Another great 'i wonder if' thing that worked

Talk to me about this Guardian laser parry.
At the moment as soon as I hear that ominous beeping, I run and run...

I just finished the Divine Beast Vah Ruta. Was a really pleasant surprise to find that the game has a few small dungeons! Thought the mechanic of it was very clever too. The voice acting is woeful though, isn't it?

The Lynel from whom you have to pinch Shock Arrows before meeting up with Sidon at the reservoir looks different to the other Lynel I've encountered so far. To me it looked like a small Ganon. (And it straight-up murdered me each time I engaged with it.)

Though as I type this, I'm now wondering if I can use the special power Mipha gave me (which I'm basically interpreting as infinite fairies, right?) to go back and try again...

Another thing that has literally struck me as I type is that perhaps I can use Mipha's Grace to attempt that secret southern island (which pinched all my gear and wouldn't let me save)


Whadda game :wub:

No, it activates once and then takes a while to recharge (takes about 1/2 hour play time I think

Thats kind of how you deal with a lot of spitting enemies in Zelda though. :shifty:

Yeah, the bit that clues you in is that in past Zelda games you just need to have your shield raised to deflect it whereas in BotW this deflects it but doesn't direct it back at them. I gathered from this that there must be another way and tried parrying them. Et voila.

Yeah tbh that whole section is one of my favourite parts of the game, Mipha's one of the more developed characters in the game
shame she's dead lmao

Really? I thought she was nauseating and wet. Which I suppose is appropriate for a Zora...

I didn't particularly /like/ her but she was more developed than most in the game.

Obviously the best character is Link's greatest friend and conversationalist, Hudson

Hagie, Ruli and their sick kid are the only characters worth a damn in BotW, certainly the only time I felt any connection to the people of the game was for their quest.

Oh and Kass is a badass with his accordion as well. :datass:

Off the top of my head, I like Urbosa, Daruk, Revali (okay so I wanted to punch his face in but), Bolson, the jiggling Korok, Kohga, Kass, Sidon I suppose (but seriously Internet stop drooling), Riju, and I even liked Zelda in some of the memories. I can get behind the whole ‘restricted intellectual’ thing.

They might not be Midna/Zant tier, but BotW still has good characters.

Up to 95 shrines now, no idea where the rest are. I'd like to at least break 100 before going after Ganon but I've run out of ideas for where to find them and I've already put so many hours into aimless exploring. Did anyone else get to a point where they were tempted to look up the remaining shrine locations? I want to experience everything this game has to offer but I don't want it to take the rest of the year (because I'm trying to focus on one game at a time rather than buying and trying loads but never completing them, which is what I usually do).

I barely recognise any of these NPC names :slol:

Kass is the best.
