Breath of the wild. Please don't post spoilers.
So I have finally gotten around to playing it. Haven’t done a zelda game since SNES. Really makes me appreciate how far things have come, and also, how much they managed to pack into those old 16 bit games.
I REALLY love how breath of the wild takes an ambient and minimalist approach to the music. One of the things that always puts me off, is being hammered by non stop music. This games gets the music right. That and the open world, makes this a winner for me so far. I’ve only just started, on the 2nd area of the game right now.
Got the hard cover extended guide, just in case I run into a stumper. So far, only thing I’ve actually looked up are recipes for cooking. I’ll probably stick mostly to using it for items and “what’s this thing?” situations. For once, I actually don’t want to spoil the game. I know you can look that stuff up on line but my eyes enjoy a rest from lit screens. The book is nice old school anyway and looks beautiful.
There doesn’t seem to be a ticking clock to save the princess, though they tell you otherwise. I really hope the game isn’t going to punish me for taking my time. There’s a literal shitload of side quests and extras, so, I’m assuming you don’t have to hurry through the story portion of the game. Some one said this was 110 hours to complete but I’m totally not seeing that. I could see this taking years to complete 100% and I am totally fine with that.
