Re: Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

What would you guys say is a good price point for getting a WiiU over a Switch?

Re: Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Id never be willing to spend more than 200 bucks on one. Their price point is insane considering the alternatives that are not only better overall, but have better titles

Sounding a little salty because I really, really want to play this game and likely never will. I've played every zelda title and for the most part beaten them all. (Not zelda 2, ****s retarded hard)

Hm, i avoid CL like the plague but this sounds like looking into. I've been wanting to break into smash competitively as well and I only practice on my 3ds which is obviously subpar to a controller.

Re: Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

If you buy or sell anything off of Craig's List I would strongly advise meeting the person you are doing the transaction with in a very public place during the daytime and also ideally bringing someone along with you.

There have been several incidents of these things being planned or impromptu robberies and people have been killed. It also seems like game consoles were involved in seemingly lot of these incidents.

I'm sure in the grand scheme of all CL's transactions conducted every day it's a very tiny chance of something bad happening, but even still, better safe than sorry.

Many cities have designated "trade" areas where people can safely meet for stuff like this. I guess I'm not sure how one would go about finding one near them, but they do exist. The local one by me is the firestation parking lot

Re: Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Second review is in, GamePro of Germany gives it 94/100. Apparently they've only ever given one higher rating (GTA 4 got a 95 lol). Just confirmed and paid for my preorder for this and the switch, leggo.

Re: Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

It makes no sense for me to buy a Switch since Zelda is the only game I'm interested in and I already have a Wii U. I just ordered one anyway just because of Zelda hype. I guess Nintendo is PRETTY GOOD at milking fans.

from what i'm hearing, calling shrines "mini dungeons" is a huge disservice to dungeons

also hearing reviews that say the grind is real (120 shrines, ldo), and the weapon breakage sucks. The latter of which I've suspected since it was first announced.

still seems like a really good game tho. Hope there's some form of quick travel since the place is so huge

On the topic of spoilers I think the ending of the game has already been spoiled fwiw.

Re: Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The glider thing might be a form of quick travel, but yeah I have to think they gave travel over a vast over world some type of consideration. Especially given that one of the major complaints about WW was the travel, and SS to a lesser extent.

It could be a disservice for sure. It's just what I have read. As for fast travel I believe you will be able to do that to every shrine you visit but not sure that's confirmed.

I'm going to try to avoid this like the plague. This may be the only thread I pop in and if people don't use spoilers I may not even do that.

Re: Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

It launches here in 4 hours so I'll have it then and can give early impressions if needed.

Read up on the Zelda GDC talk. Here's a couple of slides of what we could have got -





The first one is so 90s and bad but call me crazy that mothership looks kind of awesome.
