I should have posted this first thing this morning but in general...

My Special Edition is almost here. The scores are flooding in. There will be Life Before Breath of the Wild and Life After Breath of the Wild.

I know it's not cool to admit reviews affect your interest but the REALLY, REALLY high reviews have pumped my interest up a lot. It sounds like Nintendo really crafted a near perfect open world game. Usually not a fan of open world, but if anyone can do it, Nintendo can.

Okay yeah the framerate is pretty rough on Wii U. Just walking down the hill after emerging from the cave, it's super choppy when I turn the camera. I hope this isn't the norm because it's actually bad enough that it would bug me.

Also the Gamepad has this annoying "tap here to play on the GamePad only" message that fades in and out that is super distracting in my lap when I'm playing in the dark. I wish they would just leave it off entirely.

3/10 throwing this dumb game and my Wii U in the trash

Alright, that was quite the quick system setup...lol.

Switch is all hooked up to my TV/receiver. Noticed that I've probably been lacking left-front surround sound for a while (and didn't notice ffs...), fixed that.

Pro controller is charged, system and game software updates loaded. All set to get started first thing in the morning!

Oh baby. I sleep for x amount of hours til me and my bro leave at around 6:15am (5 hours at the time of this writing), gonna be a great day!!!!

A few more BOTW impressions, maybe the trailers before bed time, then Switch day! I can almost taste those cartridges! !!

It's great to see this thread and post in it! My new home!!

Jeepers. What. A. Game! I honestly don't want to stop, but I'm gonna nab a few hours rest, and play more soon. I'm extra glad I took Friday off now.

Well this certainly throws you in the deep end, lol.

Perhaps part of me may miss the structure of previous Zelda adventures, but it has the exploration down pat so far. I want to check out everything just to see if there's something cool! Found a neat soldiers bow. Yay!

Don't talk shit about me.

Then hand over your damn leaf you stingy bastard.

Goddamn bird right outside my window woke me up way too early today (must be a Zelda fan too!). But I guess that means it's

Once this pot of coffee finishes brewing!

I should have taken off today...

When I got home last night after the midnight launch I thought, eh, I'll update the system and then watch the Zelda intro before bed. Now I'm sitting at work with 3 hours of sleep. I'm going to be worthless today until I find a bit more shut eye.

God bless that bird.

20 mins!!!

This game is alright.
03/03/17, 17:45   
I just learned that cooking is fun!. And necessary!
03/03/17, 18:00   

Haha, I just got to that part and I totally knew what he was going to say. That bastard!

I am liking this game *quite* a bit so far.
03/03/17, 18:20   
My Wii U copy is arriving today but I'm tempted to keep that sealed and get the Switch version since I am getting a Switch anyways. Whatever happens, hype. Massive hype.

Oh, sweet paraglider!!!
