Quote from: Noodle Lizard on July 01, 2022, 08:58:18 PMMaybe it's age, maybe it's having just jumped off Elden Ring, but I'm just not feeling the wonder and awe - more the frustration of slow traversal and inventory management. Not going to stop, mind, but it feels like a bit of a chore to load up.To be fair, I haven't even got the paraglider yet. I spent ages reaching one of the required shrines only to realise the cold in the area would kill me instantly, and I didn't fancy making that trek again.

Quote from: Kelvin on July 01, 2022, 09:24:46 PMIf you don't have the paraglider yet, you're still in the training area. Try cooking food that makes you immune to the cold, or find some warm clothes, or just eat food to stay alive until you reach the shrine, it won't be cold inside so you only have to reach it. You can also stay warm by carrying something that's burning. It's a versatile game which rewards that kind of experimentation.
Quote from: Noodle Lizard on July 01, 2022, 09:56:47 PMYeah I know, it's mostly my impatience getting the better of me (especially since I don't have all that long to play each day). I hit a major brick wall early on in Elden Ring too, but that game rewarded me for my perseverance and I'm sure this one will too.
Quote from: falafel on July 01, 2022, 10:44:14 PMI accidentally went the wrong way after the training area and missed a load of quite important tutorial stuff but still had a great time with it. Probably the fondest memories I have of a game, no regrets, even the time I spent hours jumping off that tower trying to get the longest paraglide possible for that weird fellow and his experiment. Almost everything else I have ever played has left me with at least a slight sense of guilt that I could have been reading Tolstoy. BOTW is one of only two exceptions that I can think of. If you want a true barometer of my taste, the other one was Mad Max. Fuck knows why.
Quote from: Kelvin on July 01, 2022, 10:56:36 PMEveryone always says its the sense of exploration, but I've always put it down to the super chilled-out vibe the game has, that really tranquil zen "feel" to it all. My over-riding memory isn't of some big set piece or mad discovery, its of walking through quiet glades while deers spring away.
Quote from: ImmaculateClump on July 01, 2022, 09:41:06 PMI hated crysis the first time I played it, and then someone convinced me to go back and play it again as a stealth game.Wriggling about in the grass like a worm with your cloak on, silencer on, single shot, pop a bonce, get the other lads close by before they kick up a stink. Phew, not been noticed. Trying to do the full game like that until you invariably fuck up and have to fight a whole village.Sooooo good.I'm not playing breath of the wild again.
Quote from: thelittlemango on July 01, 2022, 10:00:22 PMOne of the small pleasures of BOTW is sheltering by the side of a cliff in freezing weather beside a fire that you've built and started yourself and staying there until the sun rises, magical game.
