just started this and I guess I'm round 3 hours. It feels like I'm only lightly scratching at the surface regards to content and sheer scope of things to do but more importantly it's all so much more a magical feeling from a game than I've had perhaps ever. The last game to truly bowl me over in the way that this is currently was Halo1 just in terms of how fresh and impactful the experience felt and still does in fact. Some very good design choices have been made to this Zelda that change the formula into something far more than it could ever have been as it was. Only this far in I'm utterly surprised how ridiculously great the experience has been so far

I'm playing on my WiiU. The game is so good that I can tolerate its <30 FPS drops. It has a 'Shadow of the Colossus' vibe that I love. Can't wait to keep exploring.

at least till the first golem fight, it hardly feels like shaow of the colossus.

The "imput" and movement don't have any inertia animation on it.

The colossus fight didn't make the ground tremble, didn't make your "unbalance" animation kick in, didn't make cracks on the gound it impacted ... SotC first boss seemed and seems a whole generation ahead from the golem. even the golem design is generic as hell. can be a good thing, as it really just seems like a big rock.

It looked more like a Darksiders bossfight with MMO slow molases. But I loved it, and the fact that its hard as nails.

The Legend of Zelda Breath Of The Wild is an amazing game everyone who plays video games should play it and own it.

I only wish the Switch had a Tegra X2 in it :( I am playing it on the Wii U and both have performance issues(a friend has the Switch version).

Still its not that bad(for PC standards it be unacceptable though, it does drop to the 20s) you can totally ignore it, for the rest is that good. The game is so engrossing that it won't bother you there is just so much you can do in the game and the world is amazing(crafted to perfection). I always still go to my self what would it be like on better hardware? I bet it be insane, all well.

About the game

    GriftGFX I wasn't really setting up any specific comparison at all. I said modern phones and many PCs. That's pretty vague. You can set whatever limits on that you want. (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Granted.. synthetic benchmarks are just that.. but in Geekbench 4 a Snapdragon 835 can outperform a Q9550.. which is definitely faster than the E6600. (51 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX My personal history of personal computing goes back to 8-bit computers. I think 2017 ARM CPUs are amazing. (52 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: I said E6600.. and its single core performance in synthetic benchmarks is certainly comparable. But yes. You can go back to the 80s. I didn't say anything about them being modern. (53 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, a snapdragon 835 does not have computing power of a Q6600 (9 years old). Do you really want to go further in time to prove your statement made sense? (58 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And "many" isn't a specific number. There are many 8088s :D (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But the exponential rate of progress means that you don't have to go back too far to make that true. A lot of the progress here was done in our lifetimes. That's amazing. (1 Hour ago)
