A List Of Things I Still Have To Do In Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

“Increase my Stamina Wheel” is not on this list. According to my Nintendo Switch, I’ve put more than 125 hours into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I’ve defeated Ganon, of course. I’ve also taken down an army of monsters, completed a bunch of shrine puzzles, and found a ton of Korok seeds. There’s still so much to do. Like a lot of people, I took a break from Breath of the Wild after Nintendo detailed the game’s first downloadable expansion, which comes out next week on June 30. It’s called The Master Trials, and it adds a few new challenges for Link, some new gear, and a new difficulty level. I am excited about all of that stuff, and I want to save some of the game for it. I’d been happily eating chips and dip, only to learn that our server would be bringing a tasty new variety of dip in 30 minutes. I don’t want to eat all the chips before the new dip arrives, or I won’t have anything to put the dip on. In anticipation of the expansion, I’ve gone back into my Zelda game to check my to-do list. Here’s READ FULL…

Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Speedrunner Gets Owned By Log

GIF Last night speedrunner Zant was attempting a Master Sword RTA run of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild when the log he was flying on decided to reverse direction and wreck him instead. His eventual time of 2:42:27 was still good enough to earn 7th place in the category overall (Master Sword RTA requires beating the game with the weapon but not using Amiibo support) but it could have been several minutes better if the game’s physics didn’t decide to go haywire on him. “What the F…” he said breaking into a fit of giggles. “That’s never happened.” This isn’t the first time a log has acted up on a Breath of the Wild player, but it’s definitely one of the most violent. Advertisement His time was botched and after reviving he immediately messed up on another tree launch (for the uninitiated, Breath of the Wild speedruns revolve around hammering objects to store up kinetic energy and then ride them once they lauch into the air in order to traverse long distances quickly). In his stream though, Zant said he wasn’t even upset. “So worth for the READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Breath of the Wild's Weird Moments Are Some Of The Game's Finest

Traversing Breath of the Wild’s Hyrule unveils somber narratives inferred through its ruins and decimated villages. But it’s not all sorrowful. Some of the game’s most bizarre tales are told through its strange NPCs and locales, and they’re amazing. It’s true there are eerie happenings and sidequests in other Zelda titles over the course of the franchise’s 30-year history. 2013’s A Link Between Worlds’ macabre villain turned some of Hyrule’s denizens into paintings. When Twilight Princess’ shadow beasts dropped from the sky and surrounded my Link in 2006, I got shivers every single time. Then there’s The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask which takes its dark themes and oddities to a whole other level. 12 Reasons to Play The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask  This Winter will bring the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask where Link must save… Read more Majora’s Mask takes the cake for being gloriously creepy and my penchant for weirdness is part of the reason why it’s my favorite The Legend of Zelda title.

Breath of the Wild Helped Me Beat The Legend of Zelda’s Second Quest

My childhood friends thought the original The Legend of Zelda for the NES was easy: just gather the eight triforces and defeat Ganon. I had a hard time just finding the second labyrinth. I eventually learned that my trek through Hyrule at the age of seven was actually the Second Quest, a remixed journey with rearranged labyrinths and a much harder difficulty level. Because I’d typed in my user name as “Zelda,” a secret that unlocks the Second Quest, I never actually beat Zelda—until, 30 years later, I played Breath of the Wild. The Second Quest The Legend of Zelda was unlike any of its gaming contemporaries. Titles like Kung-Fu, Castlevania, Gyromite, Popeye, Donkey Kong, as well as Super Mario Bros were simpler in scope and required pattern memorization more than equipment strategy. There was nothing to prepare me for the challenges I encountered in the Second Quest, especially without the benefit of a simpler First Quest to teach me the ropes. The Second Quest throws the toughest foes in the game at you from the beginning. The fierce Knights AKA Darknuts are everywhere. Gibdos and Pols Voices come at you while sword-debilitating red Bubbles make you READ FULL STORY…

Zelda Player Builds Ridiculous Metal Block Contraption To Get NPC To Hyrule Castle

When going on a date in Hyrule, location is everything. One player decided to take the timid priestess Paya to his favorite location in the game: Hyrule Castle. After all, nothing’s more romantic than Ganon’s evil lair. Reddit user BOOXMOWO had spent countless hours drawing enemies and friendly character far away from their designated locations when they had an idea: why not bring their favorite character into the depths of Ganon’s territory. The NPC in question is Paya, the bashful Shiekah apprentice from Kakariko Village. In an extensive Imgur thread, they outline what it took to bring her all the way across the game’s huge map. The answer is boxes. Lots of boxes. Stealing twenty crates from various enemy camps, BOOXMOWO hauled them to Kakariko Village, battling off moblins and random ninja ambushes all the while. The process took seven hours. At the village, the boxes were then arranged into an elaborate series of miniature mazes that broke Paya’s AI pathfinding and slowly but surely guided her out of the town. It made for a strange sight. The journey towards Hyrule Castle proved difficult. Paya is a flighty NPC, running away at the first sign of trouble. READ FULL STORY…
