        Honestly don't bother. I got it a few months ago and didn't complete it. Nothing has any character. The dungeons are awful, they all look exactly the same but with a gimmick mechanic. There's no buildup to any of them, you just walk into a town, the local strongest warrior takes you to the temple, then you do it and move on. Ocarina of Time's Forest Temple has more soul than the entirety of BotW.

        Also if you think the weapon degradation system in BotW is bad, just wait until you find out about the cooking. Holy fricking shit, I do not want to spend 15 minutes stood next to a fire mashing the same buttons over and over to cook food.

        I forced myself to beat three divine beasts and haven't touched it since. The Master Sword is a complete fricking piss take too. In order to get it you have to have 13 hearts. How do you get more hearts? By doing those fricking shitty shrines dotted all over the world. Four shrines gets you a heart, so you need to do 40 of these frickers to even get the Master Sword. UNLESS you ACCIDENTALLY used some of the shrine rewards to increase your stamina bar, in which case looks like you're doing even fricking MORE shrines.

        Talk about padding out gameplay holy shit. I'd give the game a 5/10. It's polished and smooth, but there's no character to anything. Mario Kart fricking dunks on it in terms of fun.

          The FE games with durability are way better than the ones without. Especially fricking Fates where they decided that because they're doing away with durability, they need to balance the better weapons somehow and chose to do things like putting literal fricking debuffs for using them.

            Fates is by far the best game in the franchise and a significant part of that is removing durability (though most of it is pair up, the friendship system and map design).

                Pair-up is actually pretty cool when it comes to movement. It's basically offensive rescue. Rescuing a character getting them in range of an enemy and then attacking all on the same turn. Or rescue and drop on same turn without requiring multiple characters. It's does miss the defensive aspect, you can't rescue a weak unit with a strong unit to protect the weak unit. You could remove the stat bonuses and pair-up could still be cool.

      Nintendo doesn't have a repair mechanic though. Which does change things. Weapons breaking an isn't a stopgate. You're not constantly going back to base to repair weapons or going into menu to use repair item. Presumeably it's the repair part that's actually annoying.

        Frick no. I earned that weapon and I like how strong/fast it is and how much time I spent upgrading it with the right stats. If that shit breaks with no chance of repair, it means the time spent obtaining and upgrading it went down the gutter. Breakable weapons are garbage and lack of repair mechanics are that garbage on fire. If you want to do this shit at least don't insert RPG mechanics in your game and go full arcade hacknslash/shootemup mode with balanced weapons for each enemy type and linear progression.

      He wasn't cutting in that clip though, he was just slapping two sticks of metal together. Cutting implies drawing the blade across the thing you're trying to cut. When slicing a potato, do you flatly push the blade against the potato? No, you draw it across the potato.

        Wouldn't that mean that if you had strong steel and folded it you'd get the same result as image.

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          No, that would make the steel worse.
          The folding technique was necessary because their steel was bad but the reason they were using that technique wasn't because it's good.
          No, if anything, it's actually pretty bad.
          The whole folding procedure was essentially
          >heat up a steel slab in the forge
          >the surface gets hot enough so the impurities burn out or become liquid
          >hammer the thing so all the crap flies off
          >fold it, to access different part of the steel within the slab
          >repeat until it's good enough
          If you do that on proper steel, you'll just be introducing the rapidly oxidizing steel back into it, making it worse in process.

          They were using it because they didn't design crucibles hot enough to actually fully melt steel, allowing to cleanly separate metal from most common impurities.
          The technique itself is ancient and was used by the vikings or some shit. The point is, the technique was known but then abandoned in Europe because metallurgy there evolved way past it.

            So the actual quality of the steel was irrelevent? It's purely just about advancements in metallurgy.

              Anonymous

              The steel quality still matters because things like carbon levels and whatnot aren't something that can be as easily managed as the aforementioned impurities.
              But the short of it is yes, the metallurgy in Japan was several centuries behind Europe.
              They at very least could've skipped the whole folding thing if they simply had better crucibles.
              Maybe even eventually replacing the partial quenching with the state of the art spring steel so katanas would flex instead of chipping and bending, while retaining all of the cutting potential.

        I do agree, there should be more creative uses for durability beyond "its broken frick you".
        Like say for instance a particular kind of weapon material reaches the low durabilty threshold, they could make it special by having it do MORE damage instead of less like other weapons.
        Or maybe have it so buffing a weapon by lighting it on fire makes it do lots of damage but durability takes a hit.
        If a game has no durability so be it.

        This wouldn't be a bad idea if they didn't completely trivialize the entire cooking system with hearty truffles.

          They did it to make the game take longer to complete. Same shit with needing 13 hearts to get to the Master Sword, forcing you to spend hours running around hunting shrines.

    I like it with guns, having to clear a jam at the worst time is fun

      That's why the gunplay in Mass Effect 1 is still my favorite, having to wait for the weapon to stabilize was fun forcing you to change or use biotics

    I kinda wish someone made a more realistic weapon durability system instead of "number goes down, weapon breaks at 0".

      It wouldn't matter, broken weapons do 0 damage.

    The reason for this is to allow for a diversity of weapons in game.
    A lot of games prior was just "rush to get the best weapon and roflmao the game". With durability, this is no longer an issue. Think TLoZ, you get a sword and until you upgrade, that's your sword. Any other weapon is moot.

    So you now have 2 different gameplays.

      If your approach to gameplay diversity is forcibly taking away the each alternative after a set period of time, you're a shit designer.

        It isn't.
        It's a brilliant design because it entirely empowers the player to decide how to best progress. Admittedly, I would prefer a way to repair things as well, but that's on the developers to include.

          >empowers the player to decide
          You're not deciding shit if the game just takes it from you and tells you to pick something else. Why do durability defenders always claim that forced diversity is somehow a choice?

    The way people will talk like a mechanic is bad because it does its job of inconveniencing you is silly. It's just another way of heaping on pressure.

    >Muramasa: The Demon Blade, because it creates an interesting dynamic to combat by forcing weapon switches
    >Monster Hunter, because it adds tension and strategy to the long fights when needing to find time to resharpen a weapon.
    >Dead Rising, only because weapons are literally everywhere.
    Those are the only examples I think do durability well.

      Dead Rising had a good concept for it, and definitely fun as shit to just dick around with all the options, but it kind of fell flat with most weapons being ass for boss fights and bullshit like the Small Chainsaw lasting for 2160 hits with all the books.
