Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild (Wii U / Switch)
« on: March 05, 2017, 07:07:23 pm »


I watched a comparison video between its performance on both nintendo consoles and forgot that this game's been in development for four years while the switch only 1 1/2. The game was intended for the wii u and was added to the switch last minute. Thus the game looks near identical on both platforms and performs near identical too :)

I bought the digital wii u version... and am blown away...

Anyone else?

Don't have the Wii U or Switch.  Given the reports on the Switch, it seems that getting it as a digital download for the U is the better option.  The new Disgaea game being available on the Switch made me think about getting a Switch.  But now I think I should wait a lot longer before I consider getting another dust collecting console system.

My kids got a refurbished Wii U for Christmas, and now my husband has to fight the kids to play Zelda on it. Not that he really fights, but they always want to play it.

Must stay strong.  Must resist temptation to buy another console just to play skyrim, I mean Zelda.  ;D

And Breath of the Wild is supposedly selling better than the Switch console itself.   :o

More units of the switch version of the game have been sold than the switch console.  Evidently there are folks that bought the game and couldn't get a hold of the console just yet.  My hands are itching now ... that makes 2 really good games on the switch.

I really don't want to lose what is left of my free time.  Sleep is necessary.   :'(

Full rundown on what the first DLC for BotW offers :

Trial of the Sword
. Previously known as 'The Cave of Trials', here enemies will appear one after the other. Link won't have any armour or weapons and will only move onto the next room once he's defeated all of the enemies. There are about 45 rooms in total. Once all of the rooms have been completed, the power of the Master Sword will be awakened and will always be in a powered-up, glowing state.

Hard Mode
. Here you'll be faced with a new, higher challenge, as the ranks of enemies are increased. You might even come face-to-face with higher ranking enemies that you wouldn't usually meet on the average adventure. Enemies will also slowly recover their health during battle and spot you much more easily, making it harder to sneak up on them.

Hero's Path Mode
. This mode helps you keep track of where you've been in the world of Hyrule. By marking your path in green on the main map, you'll be able to keep an eye on the areas you've yet to discover. By recording up to 200 hours of playtime, you'll be able to use an adjustable sliders to track a certain amount of time if you wish it.

Korok Mask
. When you find the new Korok Mask, you'll have a way easier time actually finding the tricky, little beasts in-game. If you're donning the item, the mask will shake when you're coming up on Korok's location - like how your sensor will beep when you're coming up on a shrine.

Travel Medallion
. This useful Travel Medallion will sit in a new treasure chest somewhere in the game. When you find it, you can create a temporary new travel point which Link can travel to at any time. You can only have one on the board at any time, however, so choose wisely.

New Equipment
. Eight pieces of equipment inspired by old characters and games in the series will come into play. Once discovered, you'll be able to wield such items themed after fan-favourite characters/games like Midna, Tingle, Phantom, and Majora's Mask.
