              The Switch Remaster is good, but I don't think it's fair to say the Wii by any margin did Skyward Sword's visuals justice. The remaster definitely gives 1080p a good value for the price of the game.

                I'm the kind of gay who thinks it looks better on the original hardware though. The painterly depth-filter was more on point with the level of detail in the world geometry.

                I hated that in the distance things got so blurry, you couldn't see anything. It was relieving to see the Fire Temple heat waves actually distort the background because there was some in-game explanation for why stuff blurred in the distance.

                No it is not, it is a very lackluster experience with terrible, terrible story-driven elements. The controls make up a good margin for what you are forced to sit through and it shows given that very few people care about Skyward Sword's story.

              yes I think it looks bad, they tried too hard to copy impressionist paintings without understanding what makes it work, botw is a much better realization of this idea with its use of color and lighting

                BotW isn't trying to achieve the same thing as SS at all though.

                They AREN'T both trying to do that though.
                SS is trying to be a saturated guache painting. Whether it succeeds all that well is of course debatable.

                BotW is straight up going for it's world looking like water color backgrounds from anime, overlayed with characters in solid acrylics.
                It does work remarkably well, no doubt about that.

        The open-ended boss fights were great, there's a million different ways to fight them. I do hope the game balances them better though, it was possible to just brute-force them and that's probably why a lot of people thought they were disappointing.

                its good, but not perfect. The open world just mostly offers shrines and korok seeds, and there are no dungeons besides the divine beasts (which SUCK).

                If they include some "legacy" dungeons where you get to go nuts with your runes, as well as some variation in content this could be close to perfect.

                Side quests are either fetch quests that rewards a symbolic amount of rupees (that you can use to do fuckall after a while), or they end in a shrine.

                I see this argument used all the time and it just doesn't make sense. A specific part of gameplay is not better or worse depending on what the games "gives" you at the end. It does not make whatever time you just spent playing retroactively better or worse, the experience you just had will always be the same. There are lot of quests in the game that end with an empty shrine as a reward, yes, but that does not make the quest better or worse, it's still the same thing. The fun part was solving a riddle or doing whatever you had to do before your "reward".

                Endlessly chasing after rewards and checklists have destroyed people's ability to enjoy games for what they are, it's truly fascinating.

            This aspect of the game is the most fun. I have completed the elephant and the bird thus far, two more to go. But funny that the game is best when it ditches the open world setup. Maybe it's the contrast that makes it special but the more focused and linear experiences are the most enjoyable.

          I'm a very creative person and I played the game the same way you did. When I'm trying to win my brain just enters survival ape mode. The game doesn't reward you for being fancy, the ipad powers just feel weak. They become a lot less cool when you pay attention to the enemy's health bar.

            I hope the popularity of games without health bars will rub off on this new Zelda. They didn't used to be part of the Zelda equation either, becuase you'd learn to remember how many hits and enemy took.
            With the wildly different impact of weapons in BotW, it seems the numbers game with the bars in there became somehow necessary. Kept feeling like a bit of a cop-out.

    I'm super curious about the game. Blatantly reusing an entire map, specially in a game about exploration, would be absolutely retarded. I'm dying to know what Nintendo came up with to make it interesting. All the doomposters who think Nintendo would just reuse the map without reason haven't been paying attention to how much they care about this series.

    My only hope for the game is a return to the longer traditional dungeons that required good spatial awareness and have linear progression within them. Divine beasts were good but they weren't the same as traditional dungeons.

      If they cared about this series anymore, they wouldn't have sold it out to the Ubisoft formula in the first place.

    Primarily hoping it gets to feel like its own game, which in Zelda terms also means it has its own enterpretation of the world and the main characters, at least to a certain extent.

    I'd prefer the events in BotW weren't mentioned as anything but legends.

    Hopes:

    An actual magic system
    Zelda companion character
    More village building, socializing with npcs, and crafting elements

    Expectations
    Rough doubling of explorable landmass
    More towns, dungeons, and bosses, less reliance on disposable copy/pasted content

    I think the groundwork of mechanics from BOTW is already pretty much perfect.

    The overworld will be too similar to the previous entry to make exploration feel rewarding, and the rewards for exploration will likely still just be health and stamina upgrades.
    The sky will likely be so much smaller than the overworld that it, too, will not really feel like enough to justify five years of development, and neither will the underground (I'm assuming there's an underground)

        Of all of my many gripes with TP, my biggest is that it has the best combat of any Zelda game in theory but the worst in practice. Not a single enemy forces you to do anything other than basic attacks that you could use in Wind Waker or even Ocarina.

          While that's true, you could still be flashy in satisfying non-convoluted ways. Also the sounds and animations were really satisfying, same for skyward sword even though the combat was shit. Botw feels like a real downgrade in that department. I guess the weapon degradation adds to how unimpactful it feels.

    This is what would make the game ideal for me;

    >much more difficulty. It doesn't matter to me if it was harder than previous Zelda games, it needs to gatekeep people hard. I'm talking putting Dark Souls to shame levels of hard.
    >no more fast travel
    >no more flurry rushing
    >please don't let Zelda be in it for more than a few seconds. She is an obnoxious POS
    >all DLC should be free, since they're gonna be guaranteed to make a billion dollaers off of this without ever dropping the price.

    my problems with BOTW were that the game just never made me want to replay it. Once I beat it, it was all said and done and there was no desire to go back to it. why replay a game with enemies that aren't fun to fight against?

                lol this is some retarded logic. All the forced dialogue in the plateau combined won't take 5 minutes. The rest is already pure gameplay, you're just collecting the skills you you inevitably need anyway.

                It goes against the entire notion that "DUDE YOU CAN GO RIGHT TO GANON", when the game forcefully stops you from doing anything until you complete specific shrines and makes you listen to expository dialogue, with no way to skip all of it. You're not actually giving a reason why I can't just start out with all of my shiekah abilities, skipping these boring trials.

                What a retarded argument. It stops you until you have the skills you need to do the rest of the game. You don't start the game with all the abilities because of basic game design, where abilities are introduced to the player gradually. Even by this metric, botw does it faster than almost any other game.

                Saying you can't skip straight to the final boss is such a dumb criticism too. Name one game where you can do that. I'll wait.

                Plateau is only kino because it constantly shows you cool new things and it feels like the possibilities are endless. Once you get down to the ground you will gradually realize that you just experienced almost everything the game has to offer. There are no more item unlocks that brings new puzzles to solve, they just keep regurgitating the ones you did at the plateau for the whole game.
                Why not spread that shit out instead so the kino-levels remain consistent throughout the game? That's the idea anyway, not remove the sense of progression. The tutorial is the only part of the game that has it after all.

              The great plateau was literally one giant tutorial. It wouldn't have even been that bad if Zelda and the king werent' constantly talking to you, and I know that you can't skip it on subsequent replays. Really makes it hard to go back and do another playthrough.

              No it isn't. Low health and wrestling with the new controls made it one of the more difficult parts of the game for me. There's barely any dialogue, it's like calling the first mario level a "tutorial". It would be nice if you could sequence break it though.

              lol this is some retarded logic. All the forced dialogue in the plateau combined won't take 5 minutes. The rest is already pure gameplay, you're just collecting the skills you you inevitably need anyway.

      Maybe I’m looking into things too much but that’s exactly what I think is going to happen. We’ve seen Link in 2 outfits in these trailers:
      >Link in his champion tunic and his hair tied up
      >Link in the green outfit with his hair down
      I think these are two separate Links and that we’ll be able to switch between them somehow. While I used to think “Rehydrated Ganondorf” was a meme, I wouldn’t be surprised if the corpse under the castle looked the way he did the entire game and during the events of 10,000 years ago we get to fight Ganon in his prime.

    The new trailer showcasing the same things as the last one they released over a year ago is a huge red flag to me. I really hope they’re saving a bombshell reveal because as is it doesn’t seem like the floating islands can justify the six year wait for this game.

    It’s a great idea on paper but we’ve really only seen one sky island biome with the yellow trees and grass. Shots pointing towards the sky seem rather sparse as well and it makes me wonder whether there’s just a lot of stuff you can’t see from the surface or if the sky is just really barebones.

      because it's a dumb complaint. Plateau is kino af and not a tutorial in the traditional sense at all, it's literally part of the game. It's the equivalent to saying you should be able to skip the first hour in ANY game. If you think that's good then all the more power to you, but it's a dumb thing to complain about tbh.

      I don't know why you guys are getting so defensive over this. I just don't like the plateau. I don't like being told what to do. And I definitely don't like having exposition shoved in my face. NO, I don't care if you think it's not alot, ANY exposition is too much.

      They're alright. From memory:
      - There's 12 new shrines to do, and I can't remember if they're more complex ones, but when you do them all you end up fighting the thing that holds the orbs in a boss fight. When you beat him you get a motorbike, which is the most pointless thing ever.
      - You can do the master quest for the sword, which is a series of fights you have to do. I remember doing it on Master Quest, and kept running out of weapons / ammo on the lizardfos, and then rage quitting. It'd be much more doable on normal mode but in Master Quest enemies respawn health up to 30% of it (I think).
      - DLCs also allow master quest, which is a decent challenge early on until you get top tier weapons and become OP, then it just becomes like normal.
      I think that's it for the DLCs, are they worth it? I think I'm on the fence about it. It is typical Nintendo though charging a fortune for not a lot of content.

    For open world games sometimes I just want to play in the sandbox with my toys, as a sandbox game BOTW was pretty lackluster.
    In the desert you have several tall statues and you do a puzzle to only be rewarded with a treasure chest, this was incredibly disappointing. I wanted this to be the entrance of a dungeon. In the southern part of the map there is a sun painted on the mountain. How cool would have been if I shot with a fire arrow and secret cave opened.
    better Enemy variety, more roaming bosses.
    Random events, You have the falling stars with xenoblade armor set. I was excited when that happened because I wrongly assumed to expect more events like.

    I have over 300 hours in BotW and i can't be any less hype. All I've seen is basically just expansion pass 2. I went from expecting more populated and developed towns, a darker tone in the overworld, biome changes, new structures to explore, etc. Now I'm just hoping all the dungeons are hiding in the sky or buried in the ground. I always thought Tarrey Town would become Hyrule's developing financial capital but it'll probably be exactly the same.

        It's like Pokemon Arceus. They set it in the past before content existed so they could just leave the world empty. Now BotW2 will be set right after BotW, so there wasn't enough time for content to develop.

        It's crazy to me that they spent 7 years on BotW2 for what amounts to maybe a few months of change in Hyrule.

            It has the empty world that BotW haters accuse it of having. It's basically just a safari zone simulator. And yes I played it for a few hours and from what I understand every area is the same empty shit.

    Different map as big as the first one, no weapon durability, actual dungeons, no shrines, more armor, more towns, a lot more enemy variety
    >expectations
    Same map just with some generic islands above, weapon durability returns, some dungeons but not much, shrines are back, most of the new enemies are just old ones with new weapons

      No.
      Master Sword will break but regenerates after about 15 minutes.
      Hylian Shield is the most durable shield in the game but still breaks eventually.

    don't do it, nintendo. rockstar made that mistake including the RDR1 map in RDR2, then doing nothing with it.

    I know we'd never get playable Zelda, but it'd be cool
