The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Think I spent two hours yesterday doing a very bad job of following something floating downstream. I haven't messed around this much in an open-world game since GTA San Andreas, probably a combination of the playful interactivity of just getting around the world in this, and the fact that I can play this on handheld and not feel like I'm supposed to be wringing some huge amount of significance out of every moment just because it's on the Big TV.

I’ve got to a really interesting stage in this. I’ve prattled about in the east and done a couple of the kind of regional main quests, but I’m picking my way back east and not quite feeling like engaging with the locations yet. So I’m stalking out to the towers, even taking out a vulnerable Guardian if the opportunity arises, and slowly piecing together a bigger plan of action.

 

This really keeps growing and growing if you let it.

Having a great time with this at the moment, playing with my son. I've beaten the game previously, but we're tackling it together.

 

It's funny, because in my save I caught the giant horse and named him Ganeighn. Height of wit, I'm sure you can agree! Well my son caught wind of this and that's how we refer to the horse in his game also; I have to keep reminding myself that it isn't actually the proper name of the animal!

After falling head over heels for Breath of the Wild recently (Only got a Switch + BOTW a few weeks ago) I picked up the Art / Making of book Creating a Champion.

 

If you love the game and haven’t picked it up, I urge you to take a look. I’ve always considered Half Life 2: Raising the Bar as the best video game making of book and nothing comes close to the behind the scenes insight in it.

 

But on first inspection, this gets under the skin of the development of BOTW to the same degree of HL2. Showing some great concepts, failed first attempts and how they got to where the final game climbed to. Can’t wait to devour it all!

I think I’ve solved the last of the riddles at the Deku tree, but...

 

Spoiler

I can’t seem to get my horse to the top of the tree to put its hoof in place. I thought I might be able to cover it in octo balloons or something but nope.


If I’m wrong don’t tell me what the answer is.

 

Edit - Not even hints. Although I just realised a solution that is easier.

You’re way off. What’s your easier solution?

 

Spoiler

Either I explode a horse (not my horse) in to a million pieces and hope it drops a hoof, or - and I think this is more likely - it'll be a loot drop from those centaur guys I've been avoiding. Those have hooves for sure.

Amazing. Hauling a horse over the Deku Tree like some sort of Zelda Fitzcarraldo.

In my defence it was late and I’ve treated riding horses in this like driving the Mako.

 

Spoiler

Edit - You know what, fuck it. As soon as I defeat Ganon I’m going to come back and put a horse up there. That’ll be Link’s personal Apollo program. “We put a horse on top of the deku tree and do the other things not because it is easy but because it is hard.”

I love it when new posts appear in this thread, three years after release. I don't think I look back on my time in any game as fondly as this one.

 

My sister recently got a Switch so I lent her my BOTW cartridge. It's one of the few non-digital games I own. I was explaining to her how it's the best game ever, one of my fondest gaming memories which is something after all these years. 

 

After I'd finished saying all of that I immediately regretted my choice to lend her the cart and I'm *this* close to just buying the game digitally and starting it over again.

 

Despite having Xenoblade on the go and Paper Mario ready to play at the weekend.

Completely ordinary things, but I reached a very strange conclusion with the last one.

 

My memory is hazy of that quest and I’m pretty sure I never finished it, but I’d be interested to hear what the conclusion was, if you’ve done it yet.

The game is so amazing that this could actually be a solution. :lol: 

 

I'm sure you could attach a few balloons to your horse and waft him that way.

 

Although you might want to avoid a certain fairy glade after you do that; the occupant won't be pleased.
