    When Lawrence did the Casper mattress read, I pictured his face photoshopped onto Umara from Himouto! Umaru-chan all curled up playing video games and chugging cola.

    For Lawrence: My Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild experience (story spoiler free)


    My BOTW (Breath of the wild) walkthrough thus far has been such an overwhelming and mind blowing experience. That might sound like i'm over reacting but hear me out.


    I am not a Legend of Zelda fan at all. I have not played any Zelda game ever, nor have i had any passion to seek out this series. The only reason i got BOTW was because i bought a switch. Thats the context to my situation. basically: Me not being a Zelda fan=no hype for BOTW. Since my exceptions all together were so low, my mind was beyond blown! 


    Pros: When i first play any of type of game, the tutorial for me always sets the tone of a game. whether or not the game holds your hand, or lets you be the free independent soul you were born to be. BOTW sets the tone of the game in the first 15 minutes. and that tone is: Here is how YOU (as Link) function, now explore and do shit. after putting roughly 20 hours into the game im still finding new abilities and different upgrades, for said abilities. I'm still finding different ways to utilize all the tools at your disposal to your advantage (like swinging metal boxes at enemies, using the magnet ability to find chests in rivers ect.) and that self discovery in itself, makes this game a refreshing change of pace. BOTW  drives you to discover new things. and to (sometimes literally) never leave a stone unturned. that is the main reason why i love this game so much. that, and the combination of amazing inner worlds and the A.I. that inhabit BOTW is defiantly the most impressive immersive experience ive EVER had. and im major fan of Bethesda Games. the way that kids run in villages, women gossip at public laundrys, people prep for adventure by gearing up, people working/farming ect. Are so fluent and smooth, that it feels like an ACTUAL village that REAL people would live in! After i bought a house in a village i felt like an actual local of that village. and the role-playing potential here is immense! My last point is just the cooking mechanics. The hunting and gathering grind totally pays off with the cooking aspect to this game. Making random combinations with different foods and seeing what types of foods mix well and what types make better quality foods, is basically a game within itself. In my current playthrough, i have 3 pages maxed out with elixirs and ability-boosting meals and always keep it full. cooking in this game make me wish cooking in real life was this simple and fun! 


    Cons: There is one GLARING FLAW to BOTW. And that flaw is weapon durability, and not having any way to repair your items. A good case against my argument for this particular flaw, is that: "this game throws items at you from all directions. if you explore a little, you'll fill your arsenal back up and be ready to fight again. and they give you UNLIMITED BOMBS!" i totally agree with that argument. but all im asking for, is for the ability to repair at least ONE item! when i first found my "Travelers Claymore" that weapon to me, became my icon. It was my bad-ass Claymore! the weapon that enemies see me holding, and go: "oh shit, its the fabled legendary champion Link! run!" but 12 swings later, it breaks. this is totally a PERSONAL OPINION and might only be a problem for a role-playing gamer (like myself) but i wanna keep at least one great powerful weapon and use it a lot, or at least until i find a even better weapon. i can see how this can be exploited but im only complaining about this because there is LITERALLY no other cons!  laughing


    Verdict: Legend of Zelda BOTW pulls off what it is meant to be. and that is an open world, role-playing game. i've never seen a game so perfectly executed in a very long time and this game is defiantly going in my top 10 favorite games of all time! 


    Sorry for my long post, but Lawrence told me to give him knowledge of my experience with the game thus far because he wants to read that shit so here it is. Im very stoned and i thought putting my feelings about this game into text would be a great time passer. I hope everyone else is enjoying BOTW as much as i am! Happy Gaming!  smile

    Man, I learned about that lightning today... I was running around Hyrule tower hopping and I made it out to the Faron tower. While there, I set my heading to the next tower and I start paragliding my way down. Within 5 seconds, there's a torrential downpour, 3 spark ticks, and bam, insta-killed out of the sky. As I'm falling the fairy in my pocket is triggered and I come back to life just in time to slam into the ground and die again. BotW has a major hate-on for me apparently.

    Do you think Nintendo has a masterplan for the Switch, releasing it in March and leaving themselves 8 months until the gift shopping season to build their line-up and fix what needs fixing system-wise? I was thinking that the best possible sales pitch for the Switch for the general public would be seeing the concept in action and working, but maybe I'm overthinking it.

    is "on accident" as opposed to "by accident" an American thing? Adam is the person by whom I've heard it used the most. However, I've also heard it by other American online personalities as well.

      Maybe? As an American I wouldn't bat an eye at either of those expressions. They are both perfectly acceptable in our common vernacular, at least to my knowledge. Do you think one of them is grammatically incorrect? From where do you hail?

    Played it on my mate's Switch for about an hour. The 2 stupid things I've done so far are 1. At the top of that tower where you can mark Pins by hitting the R button, I hit the wrong button to exit that mode and accidentally threw my sward off of tower and spend 15 minutes looking for it at the base. Found it though. And 2. The closest other temple thing was the cold one, so I went there next, started losing hearts from the weather so just ate every single piece of food I had picked up until I was able to get to the top of the mountain, put my tablet there, and then travel away. It makes sense that there are apparently warm clothes.

    Funhaus material = funny, Podcast = Serious Discussions? I've watched a couple of these now and it seems disconnected from the comedy this group excels at.

      I would argue that these discussion are layed with very serious humor! While the topics might be more serious than sniping balls, the jokes are still there, just listen a bit closer and I think you'll learn to enjoy the podcasts more! I look forward to every Monday, more than any other day, simply because of these podcasts!

    Man I'm really bummed out I can't play this game. I should stop reading/listening people talk about it because it's really making my expectations really high and I won't be able to play it for a few months. 


    Also, Buzzfeed? You knows should know better.

    So this game has the Dark Brotherhood from Morrowind's Tribunal expansion? Or, possibly, just the Mythic Dawn from Oblivion?

    i was feeling the same thing that adam was talking about - i told myself i would hold off on getting the switch because i haven't played a lot of zelda in my time, but then the closer the release date got, the more i regret not getting one. i still don't have one (and i'm hoping i can play a little bit of it at pax east, if it's there), but the more everyone talks about how great zelda is, the more i want to have that experience.


    i'll most likely hold off until the summer. i'm hoping that the overcooked release date will show up soon and i'll have a few games to play on it to satisfy my nintendo thirst until mario odyssey comes out, which was originally the only reason i wanted a switch.


    this was great to listen to just to hear different experiences with a game that seems genuinely fun, interesting, and challenging, but not overwhelming. we'll see if i can hold off until the summer or if i'll get my grubby hands on a switch sooner rather than later

      To clarify, I don't give a fuck if buzzfeed is a sponsor. Buzzfeed sucks but you gotta do what you gotta do. I get that. I was just surprised they would sponsor anything related to RT.
