I like them when the skies are clear. When they're all green and gross it's like ugh no thanks for me.

Bump. Took two games and two years but I got all 120 Shrines and the delicious classic tunic.

What a game. And I still have almost all the DLC to do.

Any way to embed Twitter vids?

My wife recently started playing again in hopes to officially beat the game. She beat all four beasts and was near the end anyway. Watching her play was so fun last night. The game is an enigma of beauty. And when she let me do a Major Trial of Strength for her, well that was hella fun. I'm interested maybe starting a new file... Or perhaps playing Master Mode more. I only just started that file a while back.


You should be able to just paste in the normal embed data from Twitter.

Ah yes, thank you. I forgot.

Okay, well played.

Totally agree. I hate that guy with more passion than maybe I've ever hated a video game character. Get. Off. My. Freaking. Property.

If there was one flaw in BotW it was this one.

EDIT: Nice! You can get him to stay away if you just never talk to him in the other town? I now know the entire point of my current BotW play-through. Sorry Zelda, new goal.

In my second run I never talked to Bolson the final time after the wedding so that I could enjoy my house all by myself.

I feel like the whole game is anew thanks to this information!

I never figured out how the town building stuff worked so I never did much of it. Was it obvious? It seemed confusing to me.

Maybe this is my version of Carlos and the twin shrines...
Posted: 08/13/19, 03:59:56

I don't recall it being too convoluted. You never did any Tarrey Town stuff eh? Then you may not have heard probably the best song in the game.

I could not find the Goron whose name ends in "son" during my first playthrough. Had to have a friend give me some hints during my second. I never actually took the official trail to Goron City, I just cut through the mountains!

I looked up some shit in the game.

Too much needle in a haystack. A few of the last shrines, the "sons", etc.

The one thing I was bummed/surprised I never saw without a guide was that Kakariko Village shrine that you need to complete all the Kakariko quests in order to get to. I released the fireflies next to the firefly girl during the daytime! I didn't know I needed to follow her home at night!

I looked up maybe the last six shrines or so because I figured the reward for clearing them would justify ruining the permanent mystery for myself, but the reward was pretty tame, so I wish I had just saved them.

I did everything on me own except for a few of the sidequests, though a couple of those was just looking up how to start them. Some of them are pretty obscure.

Watching all those arrows being used was both thrilling and painful. Thrilling because arrows are the best, painful because I am constantly out of them and envious of your stock. :P

@J.K. Riki

I used to keep my numbers down intentionally (more of a survival feel) for the longest time but then realized there's no real sense in not having a stockpile. If you wanna be more effective against the enemies - especially in MM - you pretty much need to. Goes a long way.

Ice arrows have got to be my favorite. Electric is good for making them drop their stuff. Not sure what fire is good for aside from burning shields away.
Posted: 08/14/19, 20:38:40

My biggest problem is I'm not fast-traveling. So if I want more arrows, I have to ride my horse to that shop on the other side of the world. :P
