What does Todd think of Breath of the Wild? Nintendo basically made a Japanese Skyrim with mountain climbing, so I'm sure he has strong feelings about it.

I I as a fellow anonymous, feel that Nintendo could never make a game sith the same unique charm and thrills of a genuine Bethesda video game, let alone a Skyrim clone! It couldn't be further than the truth fellow user that this Nintendo game is even a stone's throw from the remastered already-masterpiece game that is Skyrim.

Indeed everyone knows this, and only the Japanese and silly young men think that this Nintendo game can even compare!

It's pretty funny when you start making comparisons between both games.
Zelda actually had not just mountain climbing but "everything" climbing, even other people's houses while Skyrim, a game that happens in a mountainous region, had no climbing whatsoever.

Skyrim removed weapon and armor durability entirely from previous games and the result is that every piece of gear you encounter is either a direct upgrade to your equipment or loot fodder.
And considering how short the tier list is for equipment, it's often more about the enchantment that you want, until you actually get some artifact to use instead.
By comparison, BOTW had weapons breaking all the time, which made weaker ones valuable to dispatch weaker foes and the rarer ones saved for important fights.
Even the artifacts are done better, with weapons that can freeze, set people on fire or shoot out flame projectiles.

Armor in Skyrim serves only the purpose of increasing your armor and slotting 4 enchantments with a very tiny progression that you never use in favor of faction\guild\artifact armor instead unless you're an Enchanter.
Armor in BOTW is mostly utility that you switch on the fly for different situations and has its own progression to make it stronger\better.

Both games have quest markers but while Skyrim has an actual quest arrow for everything, BOTW still has some quests where you're only given hints about what to do or where to go.
And they never ask you to travel to the other side of the world to handle some trivial quest.

Dungeons are short in BOTW which is both good and bad since it's less content but at least it doesn't take you too long to go through them, making you get bored of that tileset as fast as Skyrim does with its dungeons, and they are all open to you without requiring quest-specific keys to open certain doors.
The 4 main dungeons are also somewhat short but at least they do vary quite a lot from standard dungeons, while Skyrim is mostly the same all the time.

Enemy variety was a valid complaint about BOTW and yet it still manages to have better enemies than Skyrim, who mostly only use a single tactic each and can be easily fooled.

Shouts in Skyrim compared to the blessings in BOTW are shit. An over-hyped mechanic that is barely worth the effort placed in it, saved for the mandatory dragon killing shout, while the Blessings are unique game changing mechanics that tie beautifully with the story and your companions, not just reskinned spells.

And let's not forget the myriad of shit you can do with the game's rules in BOTW, from setting a field on fire and using the updraft to fly over enemies (or just burn them with said fire), dropping\throwing metal weapons on to your foes during a storm, stealing\disarming weapons from your enemies, the Statis Power and its uses, how Magnetism is a limited version of Telekinesis that actually works for combat, etc.
There's a lot of stuff you don't really need but you can have fun using, while Skyrim's the exact opposite. There's almost nothing but the standard default gameplay to use and the game stagnates immidatly because of that.

but at least it doesn't take you too long to go through them, making you get bored of that tileset
never hurt my enjoyment of dungeons in the previous zelda games, or other games. eventually the visual appeal might cease to grab my attention but i still want to explore and figure stuff out. i got a bit tired of the dungeon music in link to the past though.

Justin Watson
Justin Watson

Dungeons in previous titles had different tilesets for each one and all used a different gimmick or had their own enemies. They were like entirely different zones.
BOTW on the other hand has the same tileset for everyone of those small dungeons, with similar enemies and traps. It can indeed get a bit boring after a while, which is likely why they are that small but numerous instead.

I think the ghost shader was impressive, although I'm unaware if one as good existed at the time, art direction in the game is absolutely excellent, better than most games, application is about standard though, things like the architecture is excellent.

the ghost shader was impressive
It's a texture with some transparency and glow, how can it be impressive? It's pretty, does a fine job and certainly looks better than Oblivion's ghosts, but it's pretty standard in terms of shaders.

youre right, i just kinda prefer the old formula for dungeons.

Nolan White

You're simplifying it a bit much, it also has this really nice transparency gradient from top to bottom as well as a faked fresnel that just makes them pop, I'm not impressed technically just visually, it looks good, and I hadn't seen better ghosts in a game beforehand to my memory.

Blake Jones

It was pretty bad, speaking as someone who actually enjoyed it somewhat

The weapons are big foam paddles and the armor looks Forgotten Realms inspired. Insane high fantasy works great for somewhere like Morrowind but Europe inspired provinces like Skyrim should veer in a more historical direction. And the vanilla graphics are just awful for their day and age

Joseph Harris
Joseph Harris

I misspoke for a second, when I said art direction I meant designs, for the most part, their lead concept artist was easily one of the industries best, better than the turds at CDP, not a single place in Witcher 3 is as dreamy or as atmospheric as most places in Skyrim, even with it's low quality graphics.

Witcher 3 is probably one of the few games more overrated than Skyrim, it's execution is good but it is not an ambitious RPG, or even a particularly ambitious world, only thing it does better than ES is world scale and technical graphics, also writing and story, unless you know ES lore in which case speculation makes the Skyrim story intersting, you effectively play as the good guy trying to do something noble and condemning multiple realities to a permanent death, but also the possibility that the dragonborn slowly realizes their true power and solidifes Talos' divinity absolutely.

Concept art should have no bearing on the game itself. Those pics look better than anything in the world. And it's not surprising that it's more "dreamy" or "atmospheric" than Witcher, it's an high fantasy setting vs "realistic fantasy". Witcher's ambient isn't supposed to wow and amaze you, it's supposed to look believable as a medieval fantasy setting.

I like both types of styles depending on the game, but I don't believe Skyrim did high fantasy that amazing to begin with, there are several games that look far better for that kind of thing (Guild Wars, both 1 and 2 for instance) while Wither 3 actually did quite an amazing world for that.

only thing it does better than ES is world scale and technical graphics, also writing and story
And gameplay too. It's basically better in everything that an RPG has to be good at than Skyrim. I'd even argue that the very first Witcher is already a better game and RPG than Skyrim.

unless you know ES lore in which case speculation makes the Skyrim story intersting, you effectively play as the good guy trying to do something noble and condemning multiple realities to a permanent death
That's not exactly clear. Sure, the current timeline is now missing the element that ends it. Maybe.
Maybe it's inside the Dragonborn (since he devours dragon souls) and he will eventually finish the job since he inherited it.
Or maybe the Dragonborn will go to consume every Dragon soul and once he has them all, Akatosh is complete and reincarnates. Wether he ends that kalpa or not is up to speculation.

It's also pretty easy to imagine that kalpas don't last forever anyway, they degenerate with time, Alduin just ends them before or while that's happening.
Or maybe there's something else out there that can destroy kalpas. Or maybe there are multiple realities at the same time, starting and ending in a multiverse. This one won't end but maybe it's not the only one in that situation and it's inhabitants will inevitably start traveling outside of it unto other kalpas.

That's basically what the Hist Tree did anyway, proving you can either survive outside of a kalpa or that the next one exists before the previous one expires.

And to add to it I think a good combination is to have mundane areas that look like the witcher, and then dreamy/fantastical locations that are meant to wow you. IMO when high fantasy makes every corner of it's world too fantastical, then it loses its impact

I wish they'd halved the number of shrines in the game and instead put large ass temples on top of mountains or given us huge, expansive caves.

And I actually kinda like the Shrines because despite being visually repetitive, the challenges in all of them appear to be unique and well crafted (but often too short to be memorable). I'm actually kind of hoping that the next Zelda game doesn't change things TOO much, because I think I would rather see Nintendo perfect Breath of the Wild as opposed to simply making a completely different game.

It doesn't break, it loses energy. Different things, not to mention it regenerates.

It's also a weapon made for fighting Ganon and Guardians (by lore) and when fighting them, it loses much, much less durability with every swing.
If it didn't had that mechanic, as soon as you got it you'd use nothing but the Master Sword for everything and everyone.

upgrading weapon slots
That just makes the game less fun since it encourages you to hoard, BotW is only fun in the Great Plains and Eventide Island unless you do the following limits on yourself:

1. No increasing hearts (and therefore no master sword). Bonus heart dishes are fine though (and encouraged)
2. No increasing weapon slots
3. No fast traveling
4. No upgrading armor past tier 1
5. Master Mode (obviously)

Not really, the thing only does about 36 damage (double that against Ganon and Guardians) but once you're fighting against things like Silver Lynels, 36 damage will feel like you're hitting it with a stick compared to every other weapon in the game by the time you get the master sword. Hell since ++ ancient weapons are so easy to farm up that you can have inventories full of them and they're significantly more damaging than the Master Sword even without Ancient Armor let alone Savage Lynel weapons

Nathaniel Russell
Nathaniel Russell

You'd have a point in every other Zelda game since that's the only sword you get besides the starting one. But with the large array of different weapons you get in the game, it'd feel pointless to use any of them (save for Guardian Weapons) instead of the Master Sword. If it was infinite, it'd invalidate the rest of the content and the entire mechanic. And for a game this large, it'd be pretty boring.

Also remenber that, in previous games combat was mostly secondary, solving puzzles with the items you were given happened far more often and for longer time. Using mostly the same weapon wouldn't be an issue there, but once you shift to a more combat-centric game, it does become a problem.

Jason Turner
Jason Turner

In-game: The sword gets most of its damage-dealing properties by channeling Hylia's divine magic. Without that magic, it's just a metal stick with a 'blade' of which the edge is shaped like a two inch equilateral prism. Maybe it could do 5 damage or something in a pinch.
It channels magic in the exact same way that the elemental weapons do. After expending its charge, it takes a while for the magic to fill up to a point where the effect works. If you try to cause the effect before that point, the magic is expended while trying to cause it, but the effect fails.

Out-of-game: They don't want to obsolete all other weapons or the interesting/fun gameplay mechanic where you have to emergency problem solve because your weapon became non-functional at an unexpected time.

Liam Sullivan
Liam Sullivan

Link should be using the Master Sword over every other weapon.
It's, like, his thing. What if we had a Metroid game where Samus was in the Zero Suit 95% of the time and only got her armor for 2-3 minute bursts before it had to recharge?

Carson Campbell
Carson Campbell

Save Guardian Weapons
Or Mighty/Savage Lynel weapons
Or Royal Weapons
Or even Royal Guard Weapons both can be found in bulk in Hyrule castle

Its unique feature could've been it's unbreakable/infinite use because everything else at that point scales past it in terms of damage. Up til the DLC which has you awaken it, it has shit damage. It's one bonus could've been "It won't break" and sure, casuals would grip it like the Drakesword in DS1 but most people would still only use it when everything else has broken (Or as a mining tool, literally not much would change really)

Bentley Parker
Bentley Parker

That shouldn't have been DLC either. That shit was already done in WW, and having it be optional here would have been fine.

Kevin Diaz
Kevin Diaz

You're arguing out of tradition, that's mistake number one.
Mistake number 2 is not knowing what the Master Sword is, specifically in this game. It's a weapon made specifically to slay Ganon and the Guardians. It works amazingly well against them because of that. Outside of that purpose, it's not that special at all. It's the "sword that cuts the darkness and brings the light", it's effect is more magical than physical.

What if we had a Metroid game
Stop that. You're talking about a Metroidvania, where progression in the game comes out of collectin upgrades that unlock new areas to explore. Save very rare and purposefull exceptions, your gear is never removed from you because you need it to reach areas in the game.

BOTW is not a Metroidvania, it does not see the same progression in terms of upgrades at all, neither are they mandatory at all to finish the game, unlike Metroid where you'd need every kind of weapon and upgrade to pass it.
If you wanted a better comparison, it'd be like Samus having a Beam Cannon Mode that can only fire for a while before needing to cooldown, doing awesome damage against everyone and double to Ridley. But that doesn't exist because for the purpose of a Metroidvania it doesn't make much sense nor serve much purpose, much like a weapon that trumps almost all others in terms of damage doesn't make any sense in a game about switching between weapons on the fly.

No. That's what you understood from that, not necessarily what I said.

I'm saying you're expecting the game to be a carbon copy of the predecessors in terms of gameplay, which the previous games have already been and apparently that wasn't very popular considering the whole "Nintendo is nothing but rehashes!" spiel.
A new game shows up that plays differently from previous iterations and now the critique is that "it's different so it's bad"? Sakamoto was right, you don't know what you rike at all.

You still control Link, you steal travel Hyrule, meet Gorons and Zoras, save Princess Zelda, retrieve the Master Sword, fight and defeat Ganon, have a desert, ice, forest, volcano section, roam several different dungeons with a key component to end the final fight, use bombs and a bow, get more heart containers from defeating bosses and exploring the world, use rupees as currency, etc.

You talk about the Master Sword like it was outright removed from the game, as well as everything known about it, instead of just changed to something new, on top of every new piece of content added to the game or the much larger world and how better horse riding is.
It plays differently, but it's still zelda, and while it could have been better, it's still pretty good and improved compared to previous iteractions.

That's basically what I felt with Breath of the Wild. It was empty and void of life, with wildlife being scarce aside from the smaller lizards and birds, and I expected a few small settlements here and there or more camp sites but I hardly saw much of that. Not to mention the odds of running into other NPCs was scarce as fuck and the enemy camps were simplistic and devoid of any real sense of realism and detail. I'm still hoping the final DLC actually does improve the activity in the world or at least adds more towns and villages, or makes the current ones feel bigger since they just feel as small as the shit you see in Skyrim (except Zora's domain, but that shit is mostly just aesthetic pillars that serve no real purpose other than to look pretty). My other complain was the jungles in the faron region where you can hear all manner of animals and monsters in the jungles like monkeys, wildcats and exotic birds but there's literally nothing there aside from a handful of bokoblin/moblin camps and the occasional bug spawn.
