7/10, not even agreeing with Sterling, the game has its problems but its above average.

prove me wrong

>>387013690
7/10 is average though 8/10 is good, 9/10 is great and 10/10 is paid reviews

That no one really asked for

No that's the modern review scale. 5/10 should be average and I think that is anon's scale if 7/10 is above average. The modern scale really sucks

i have yet to find a nearly flawless game to give a 10/10

I don't think this is as controversial as you think. The main complaint is that they are short, which means people want more of them
>>
>>387013049
I beat the game last week and I fucking loved it. Im gonna take a break and play it again when the final DLC comes out.

Is it worth it to do all the shrines? Also master mode? I did around 100 when I finished my first playthrough. I didn't really bother with sidequest except some of the shrine quest with Kass.
>>
>>387014810
If you like shrines go for it, the reward is just some clothes but if you enjoy doing the shrines there is no reason not to finish it
>>
>>387014629
How about 9/10 then?
>>
Hyrule is just so nice to be in. The atmosphere is really fantastic
>>
I had the game since release and only got one divine beast. Most the time I can't get myself to play the game thinking if I put in 3 hours into the game I will not get anywhere. The maps are too fucking huge with nothing in them.
>>
>>387015287
Aside from a few games which I hold as high as 9/10, thats strictly due to nostalgia. I'd say Super Mario 64 is a 9/10 just because of how much I play that game and enjoy it each run, but factually it isn't a 9/10 game or possibly not even an 8/10 game. I can't list any 9/10 games that are actually deserving of that score, I apologize anon
>>
>>387015305
Sometimes when I want to take a break I just wander around hyrule
>>
>>387015452
There are tons in them, you just have to be good at finding shit. Moving around is really fast too if you paraglide. I never got the empty huge map complaint, I get everywhere extremely fast.
>>
>>387015121
Those clothes do have some of the best armor values in the game, at least.

They're also apparently very comfortable.
>>
Should I buy the DLC? I want an excuse to go back to the game
>>
>>387016331
Depends on how much you like the actual combat and gameplay of BOTW
Considering I really like the gameplay, the Master Trials are bretty good and Master Difficulty is fun too but honestly is pretty fucking bullshit at times and makes the game essentially a stealth game
The costume shit is worthless
>>
>>387015573
H-how about a 8/10? I'm trying to figure out what a 7/10 is to you.
>>
>>387016331
Master mode is meh
Master trials are great
>>
>>387016538
I'd give Splatoon 2 a 7/10 as well if thats what you're looking for. Shovel Knight was pretty solid, albeit short so possibly an 8 or 7.5 if you're into that half ratings. Mario Kart 8 I'd give an 8, if the DLC is included since I think you get a lot of bang for your buck.
>>
>>387016514
>essentially a stealth game
Sounds good, how good is the stealth in master mode?
>>
>>387016331

Tingle's armor is also worth getting just for how people freak out when you approach them.

>>387016787
It's a tad more difficult since enemies have a better line of sight, but you can always sneak strike them at night. The biggest challenge in Master Mode is probably the Plateau, since the game doesn't scale up the weapons with the enemies. The floating platforms do give you some nice gear, though, so be on the lookout for those.
>>
>>387016741
What about non-Nintendo games? I'd have to say that I would consider BotW better than Splatoon 2.
>>
>>387016787
It's the same as stealth in the base game, which is already pretty good due to things like sightlines and sound affecting the awareness of enemies. What I mean by this is that fighting enemies in this mode is way harder due to more advanced enemy placements across the board (prepare to be ambushed by enemies riding octorock platforms) as well as giving them regenerating health. Oh and for good measure a Lynel spawns on the Great Plateau just to say fuck you
Overall i'd say it's too hard to be fun because if they wanted to have all this shit i'd outright remove weapon durability because otherwise enemies have too much health to really reliably take down
>>
>>387016787
Master Mode doesn't feel noticably different, mainly because most of the changes had to do with combat and nothing else. The shrines and beasts are all still the same, there aren't any new unique enemies added, no new weapons or items. Really, all it is, is enemies are ranked up sooner than later(blue and silver enemies show up early), and they regen health at an unfair rate, artificially making battles last longer. It's not a problem when you're fighting 1 or 2 enemies but any more and it becomes a hassle because of how quickly enemies regen.

The only good thing that came out of it are the floating platforms with chests, since they give out strong weapons so early. I don't think its worth the money for this DLC, and fuck me I paid for the season pass

Just to rapid fire, Last of Us 6/10, Killing Floor 2 7/10, Metal Slug Anthology 6/10, Fallout 4 is 6.5/10, Battleborn 3/10, Stardew Valley PC 7/10, Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 both 7.5, GTA SA and IV are solid 7/10s, Civilation 3 and 4 are 7.5/10.
Generally I value gameplay over anything else, these games just come to mind from skimming what I got on PS4 and steam. I've been trying to get more RPG's under my belt
>>
They should patch in the ability to disable flurry rush. Parry is much better to use
>>
>>387017836
Jeez you have some really high standards
>>
>>387013049

This is the worst fucking zelda i've ever played, i've already finished the game but don't feel like going 100% like the previous games.

It's just way to grindy as fuck with shitty weapon durability.

Should have just made weapons upgradeable and have more purpose to switch.
>>
>>387018026
I think most of the games I listed are exceptional games which I recommend to people often. I enjoy games. I just don't think 9 or 10/10 games are being made currently, especially with Day one patches being a prominent thing today, BoTW is guilty of this among other games. Though Mario Odyssey might break that 9/10 for me if it truly brings back the goodness from 64 and sunshine.

No, legit. Bows are going to be your best fucking friend, especially when they start handing out arrows
End fights before they can begin- don't get into a scrap with a powerful enemy if you can help it. Plan ambushes. Be patient. Remember to take advantage of ragdoll physics, as you can kill powerful enemies by knocking them into water and stuff
Make sure you've mastered both Perfect Parry and Flurry Rush as it chops enemies up

yeah you're an idiot who doesn't actually realize how scoring works. If you can't name a single 9/10, that means you score games from 0-8, which makes your 7 a 9 in non-retarded measurements.

Also, can we end the meme that a 10/10 means its a flawless game?
If the best game of all time cannot score a perfect 10/10, that score is utterly useless, which means there's no reason to actually list it.

Reviewing things is not the same as scoring a test.

Yeah man this game really does look gorgeous behind that low resolution output. Texture work in most places is really well done, and the shaders they use for cel shading scale flawlessly at higher resolution creating this almost Pixar/cartoon like appearance that comes to life. Game is gorgeous. I guarantee at some point down the line there will be a 4k HD remaster of this game.

It's for future games. Do you think there was 10/10 in first year of videogames?

That is silly and outdated. My 120 shrine/4 divine beast/main quest completion normal and master mode saves say otherwise.
>>
What are the chances of the DLC adding more enemy types
>>
>>387020327
Yes.
Why not? There was the best game of its time. The best atari game is a 10/10 even if in the future a better game will have come out.
Keeping numbers "in reserve" is not only useless, it's also a waste of time. If you will only score something up to 9, your nine is fundamentally equivalent to a 10, because it is the max score.
>>
>>387020443
all, right, I'll trust. If I run into a glithc that prevents me from finishing the game and waste 200 hours I'm gonna blame you
>>
>>387020596

You won't. If you really care about the in-game photos with the camera or the save file thumbnails, wait for 1.9.1. It fixes this. It's the only real long-standing issue remaining.

>>387021193

>>
>>387023164
Yep the lizalfos. The regain tons of health fast as well
>>
>>387020114
There isn't. The Soldier's set has high defense and nothing else. It's available early on and is easy to upgrade, but it's outclassed by armor thhat you can get later on, mainly the Ancient Armor (best set in the game).
>>
>>387013690
It's 9/10 easily.

Should have come with the dlc from the start tho.
>>
Game desperately needed enemies you can't cheese with flurry rush
>>
>>387023848
Or just more varied enemies in general. Yeah I know they have larger movesets and the elemental variations have different movesets but I want them to look different

>>387022170
I just cheesed that room by chaining sneak strikes
Now floors 1-4~ really did make me wanna kill myself
>>
>>387024231
How do you do that? It's pretty hard to sneak once you are noticed
>>
>>387019837
they should have made them postmen again it'd greatly increase the flow of information
>>
>>387024462
For that room I just immediately shot arrows at the first lizalfos before it alerts the others
Snuck up behind one of them, sneak strike and before they get up walk behind them and repeat
>>
>>387024130
More enemies should force you to use runes to beat. Like peeling armour off with magnesis or something around those lines

Just got my hands on this game last week. Have about 15 hours in it so far, and just took out my first divine beast in the Zora's Domain. I'm really enjoying the game so far, it really took the best of Zelda 1 and put it into a modern style.
The characters also have that unique charm that I look for when playing LoZ games. Definitely getting a sense of nostalgia and wonder that other games haven't really matched lately.

If you have wii u sure.

On Switch it's 900p at 30 fps and the colours are not washed out if you have the Switch's colour range on FULL RANGE.

Imagine playing one of the best games of all time on a shitty broken emulator which constantly crashes. Nice way to ruin the experience sillu child.

Someone actually playing the game correctly. BotW is best enjoyed at a leisurely pace. You see these cry baby kiddies who run from devine beast to devine beast - fast warping everywhere - and beating the game in about 20 hours and complaining it's bad. Stupid ass kids annoy the fuck out of me.

if i say a game/movie/album is 8/10, then i would consider it excellent. A 9 would be a masterpiece and a 10 would be one of the best of that medium.

A 7/10 is still very good

I miss the hardwired puzzles somewhat because I do things in the simplest possible way and just kind of look back at the room and wonder if that's the way the area designer meant for it to be solved.

There's no such thing in BotW.

I always get this feeling too. As if I just cheesed the puzzle. I'm used to finding some unsatisfying solution to the puzzle and missing out completely on the intended solution, such as the Groosenator catapult thing on one of the Imprisoned fights in Skyward Sword. I just ran up and sailclothed on top and I was like, oh okay that was weird. With the puzzles in BotW I like the open endedness but I feel like I just missed the point in some of them.

I swear you have to do that to unlock sidequests in Kakariko. I remember the firefly girl not giving me a quest at night in her house which I thought was weird since she was in the journal of various worries but when I came back later she gave me the quest, which in turn let me do the heirloom quest. Speaking of Kakariko, I never see anyone mention it as the most comfy town which is weird because it's definitely one of mine, if not my most comfy town.

You need to do enough of the other SIDEQUESTS in the town to trigger the Firefly one. No plot stuff there really.

I'd already beaten Ganon once when I finally found that quest, which led to the heirloom quest.

>>
>>387044227
Let them stay, and add the TP moves on top of it. There you go, perfection

>>387044498
mortal draw is basically a sneak attack and the helm splitter is replaced by the fact that you can literally throw your weapon at an enemy and deal more damage.
>>
How the FUCK do you beat Thunder Blight Ganon? I can't get past his 3rd wave because he always ends up breaking my shields.
>>
>>387044576
Then you'd have a bunch of moves that serve the same purpose interloping.
>>
>>387044943
get a boomerang weapon and throw it to break his shield, then get some arrows in his eye. pick up the boomerang, rinse and repeat.
>>
>>387044943
>>387045097
Thunder Blight happened to be the first boss I did so I struggled with him for quite awhile too. The part I had the most trouble with was when he would power up his sword and suddenly onehit me. Every boss after that was super easy to cheese though, and I powered up way too much before tackling the castle so even that was unsatisfying.

The non-linearity of the game has some pretty big downsides imo

I hope there will be GuardianXZelda doujinshi this weekend (Comiket 92).

I don't remember but the answer is probably dodge backwards, use magnesis on the metal rods, and run away because you have the entire dungeon to fight in.
>>
>>387044704
>>387045065
That's why they should design enemies after the moves, idiots. Like an enemy that needs a helmet removed with helm splitter, and an enemy that can only be damaged with mortal draw. TP lacked that as well
>>
>>387045346
To be fair it's not like the other Zelda games got any harder towards the end

Learn how to time your backwards dodge during wave one and flurry rush. Wave two is just picking up metal rods with magnesis and throwing them at him. Wave 3 I spammed him with bomb arrows I think before he could get a shot off.

I'm not talking about ambient lighting with the day/night system. That does look fucking gorgeous, and in conjunction with the grass serves as the main reason why the game is overall so aesthetically pleasing.

Its hard to find a picture of what Im referring to, but you can kind of see it here. With certain lighting, such as lanterns and goddess statues (when receiving a blessing), the resolution dips. Its also pretty noticeable in the shrouded shrine.

BOTW now is a deserved 9/10 or 10/10 because there hasn't been a game that has shattered the mold for game design like it since the 5th generation with Mario 64 and OOT. You're gonna need to look to BOTW for developing emergent gameplay the same way everbody looks to 64 and OOT for 3D games.

Once people start successfully taking lessons from BOTW and applying them to other games (if E3 2017 was anything to go off though, don't expect much in the way of meaningful change until 2019 at the earliest) and what is in BOTW because less new and unique it will probably an 8/10, maybe even a 7/10. But for now it offers something really compelling like nothing else n the industry. And for that it can deservedly get the 9s and 10s it has gotten.

On top of having some of the highest defense of all armors and giving extra resistance to guardian beams, the set bonus increases attack of Guardian/Ancient weapons by 80%.

Ancient proficiency and attack up lvl3 stack, and not in the 50%+80% damage bonus way, instead they multiply, so with an Ancient Battle Axe++ you go from 60 damage to 172 damage.
Even then consider that you have the same defense as the soldier set, while guardians damage you even less.

Too bad the helmet looks like ass though imo

Look at this loser who doesn't want to wear a shrine on their head. I kind of wish the helmet looked like a Guardian Stalker's head, desu.

Will they make a design like pic related for Ganondorf in SSB5? They did it for Sheik in Brawl

No? The final smash might reference his Ganon form from BotW though, but knowing what a hack Sakurai is, it's not likely anything about the Dorf will change for the better.

Guardian-themed armor has the best aesthetic. Prove me wrong.
