yeah im pretty excited. i have a lot of strong feelings about it. like, i have a question. consequently, i also have a list of names. operatives, specialists, former intelligence both retired and "retired." experts, see. experts in infiltration and information acquisition. only the best of the best will do, and one by one im certain i can convince them to join me on my venture. it's not an easy one. the national security agency has harvested the personal information of every breathing citizen on american soil, while the central intelligence agency has a bug in every hole in every town in every foreign state we've ever spoken to. there are massive libraries out there; intricately recorded catalogues of mundane, every-day, 9-5 normals who don't even know they're being watched. it's a labyrinth of straight lines. a vast repetition. it is this labyrinth, this repetition, that my operatives and i will explore. we will strike out into the endless database of our government masters in search of an answer to my question, the very same question that has haunted me for months. i am certain ill find the answer on this quest, tucked away in some file under a file under a file under a file, low in resolution and insignificant, at first glance. ill know it when i see it. ill know, at long last, whose dick i have to suck to play the new zelda
There's going to be a midnight launch for the Switch at the Gamestop at the mall near me. I never got around to pre-ordering in time unfortunetley, but I do intend to at least stop by there just for funsies, and potentially pick up one with BOTW.
The last time I went to a console launch was back when the Wii first came out. Hard to believe that was a whole decade ago...
I played this game all day and want to keep playing
Edit: ok so here's what the game is
As far as I can tell The game has like three seperate things it does.
#1. Exploring areas for sidequests and collectibles and mini temples and storyline triggers and shit. It's super fun link has a jump button now so it's basically like playing super mario but in skyrim if that makes sense. The world itself is incredible and beautiful and it's basically like watching james cameron's AVATAR every time you play, you become Link the way an AVATAR viewer becomes Jake Scully it's fucking magic.
#2. Completing mini temples which are strewn all over the map and act as fast travel points, most of them center around some neat little physics mechanics and are pretty fun, some of them even have secrets, I completed one and got a spoiler:
Sick Giant Fire Sword
#3 Doing big story shit, I can't really speak to this aspect too much since it's all sort of broken up into arcs (that can be completed in any order) and I've only completed one of the arcs so I don't really have the full picture. But it seems like "Dungeons" have been replaced with like cinematic setpieces sort of? Twilight princess experimented with this kind of stuff where all of a sudden link would be like shooting balloons from the back of a dragon or something. I honestly wasn't super impressed with the arc I did, it wasn't bad but I had a much better time just running around and trying to figure out the best way to make a stamina recovery potion spoiler:
energy carrots and salt
so I could climb a 200 foot sheer rock face.

I've put some hours into it and I'm really liking it. It's almost like they pretended that none of the other Zelda games existed except for the first one. The WiiU version definitely has some frame rate issues though. It's still playable, but it's clearly pushing the WiiU the limit.
