There's something else that NO ONE has talked about.

Spoiler

So, turns out that you had a girlfriend before you died.

She died as well, and came back as a ghost, and, at some point during the game, you meet her again.

I don't think that was ever an official one. More like... unrequited love.

I hear the framerate issue is less severe on Wii U.  I noticed it on Switch but it wasn't enough to bother me even then.

No.  Framerate issues are most noticeable on the Wii U.  Less common on the Switch TV mode, and effectively nonexistent on the Switch portable mode.

Yeah I don't know about on Switch but there's been several frame drops, mostly during battle. But they resolve themselves quickly.

That's actually a throwback to another Zelda game:

Spoiler

In Ocarina of Time, the Zora Princess Ruto (notice that the Divine Beast is named Ruta), has a crush on Link when she first meets him. She jokes several times about how they will get married some day.

 

 

btw. hello everyone. Its been a while.

I generally refrain from using this phrase but Hyrule Castle is TOTALLY DOPE. It is easily the most perfect atmosphere from any Zelda game ever. The music, the enemies, the design, just everything is perfect.

I've activated every single Sheikah Tower, and have gotten to every single town located near each of the Divine Beasts, but I have yet to even officially start the quests to get to the beasts. I'm having too much fun saying "screw the story" and just exploring.

I also really appreciate handheld mode because I'm able to bring my Switch to work and just save scumm the Lurelin village gambling game for mad cash while I'm busy coding.

WiiU frame drops are a thing for sure, especially in towns or panning into fields. Not that big a deal though.

Wii U player myself, and outside of Kakariko Village the drops are barely noticeable, usually only for very short spurts.  Inside the village you're not ever in combat, so it isn't a big deal.

Yeah I have some major frame drops in battle (usually against Moblins, honestly) but aside from that nothing really noticeable to me at least. And it's not like it happens whenever I fight a Moblin. Out of the nearly 120 hours I've put into this game, I've only probably had 5 or 6 of those massive frame drops. And even then they only last a few seconds each.

I love how rewarding exploration is in this game. I've spent hours just exploring Hyrule for exploration's sake. The shrines are clever, the battles are delightfully punishing, and the physics allow for creative solutions to many of the puzzles.

BUT

The audio is awful. Most of the music is unremarkable at best and irritating at worst, the sound effects (especially when approaching a shrine) are annoying, and the voice acting is downright painful. The game is dramatically improved by turning the sound off, which is a really sad thing to be saying about a Zelda game.

I rather enjoyed the voice acting myself. Especially Daruk and Urbosa.

quality of the voice acting varied from character to character, you can turn the shrine locator off, and you cant possibly expect me to believe you werent impressed at least with the molduga battle music

I have to admit the radar noise does break the immersion.  It could have been a lot more subtle and still usable.

Mailed my left joy-con in for repairs today.  Hopefully they can get it back to me quickly, before I go into Zelda withdrawal.  I had to save and quit at an awful point--I just found the Forgotten Temple and enjoyed the pleasant surprise you get once you walk fully inside.  Spent entirely too many of my final hours trying and failing to farm horn fragments--getting close enough and then getting the shot exactly right is pretty tough, and time-consuming.

Edit: Never mind, Amazon got the pro controllers in stock (finally), and I snagged one before they ran out, so I'll only be without a controller for two days.  Looks like they still have some, for the moment, but not ready to be shipped out until the end of the week.

Also, I finally encountered significant lag: found a Bokoblin tower with mini-towers all around, all armed with bomb arrows.  All those explosions dropped my framerate to a couple of frames per second for a little while there.

Don't think I've run into Molduga yet

when you do, make sure youre either hooked up to a sound system or using headphones, because it's got a rich depth to it. the theme changes once you score a hit on it as well, so be sure to listen to both phrases
