      @Kay Nintendo are one of the if not the best game "developers" in the world. The craft of game development does involve graphics and such. But, moreso, it involves novel ideas. Nintendo just has such a creative team working for them. With beautiful ideas and the appropriate amount of polish. As someone who works in the industry its beautiful to see.

    One thing that struck me with the first game was just how unbelievably creative the fans were. Between electric flying minecarts and sneaking on enemy's heads to jump, people were able to come up with a super incredible range of ideas that I never would've thought of. I'm so glad this game seems to be catering to and encouraging that out of the box thinking.

      Climbing was pretty slow, but I never had a probably with durability. The secret is always using your lowest damage weapon. They are everywhere in the game, so you can never run out, and you never have to touch your high damage weapons until you need them. When your lowest dmg weapon breaks, go to the next lowest damage one. If you pick one up, that is lower switch to that one. If you find something stronger with your inventory full, throw away your weakest one and use the next weakest. Doing this cycle will allow you to fill up your inventory full of strong weapons. Do this for bows and shields too.

      ​@No Name Passerby A but this is The Legend of Zelda, you know, a game series that's revolved around dungeons since the first game in 1986?
      Having all this overworld content is just a plus to the game, people have been wanting traditional dungeons even in BOTW. The Divine beasts served as the dungeons, but they didn't really do it for many. They can't just make a Zelda game without puzzle filled dungeons.

      You all have to remember that BOTW was meant to serve as a new foundation for Zelda going forward so they weren't going to get everything right from the get go. This looks to be a more refined experience. There are some possibilities in the franchise out there that we didn't get a chance to see quite yet honestly.

    I love the Fuse ability. Lots of monster parts were basically irrelevant midgame for a non completionist botw run. They basically became just something to sell for the most part but the problem is you don't really need lots of money in botw during normal gameplay

    Although there are a few things we haven't seen, namely traditional Zelda dungeons making their return, the underground, or even much of the story... they've taken all the steps in the right direction so far, and boy am I glad they've decided to keep a lot under wraps until the full games' release this time! 🤞 Can't wait, 5/12 can't come soon enough.

    I initially was worried about the game since it didn't seem too different from BOTW at the beginning of this gameplay, but the fuse ability alone made the price tag make sense that is genuinely one of the coolest and much more creative abilities of not only the Zelda series but games in general, I cannot wait for this game.

    Wacky creativity! Can’t wait to spend a ton of time making so many different combinations. Adds even more replay-ability. I wasn’t expecting for us to see very deep into the game so showing off new mechanics like this was perfecttttt. Theres still so much mystery but this is very neat and doesn’t spoil anything.

    The mechanical depth at play here is off the charts. The weapon fusing and vehicle creation looks super intuitive. I'm still just so iffy on exploring the same map as the first game. Both times we were on the surface I could immediately identify where he was and noticed very little had changed of either area. Really sucks for a game where exploration is so crucial. Hopefully more time is spent in the sky than is readily apparent

    I can't imagine how difficult something like the fuse ability would be to program, considering how many options the game gives the player. It's impressive even from a purely technical standpoint, they've clearly done a lot of work on their engine. I was impressed by the very stable-looking performance as well, looked like a pretty fluid 30 fps

      It was only really possible to do because they essentially recycled the entirety of the previous game's world.
      I don't think the trade is worthwhile, since the world being recycled makes it lose all of its exploration value. And they didn't even fix the terrible durability system, they only supplemented it

      Combinatoral Explosion. Programming a behavior for every item is one thing, but programming a behavior for every _combination_ of items? That's borderline impossible without creating some standardized interface, but that interface would also limit the ways that things could be put together. Regardless, you're going to have to compromise somewhere, and creating something so impressive in spite of those challenges is astonishing.

    Breath of The Wild was eclipsed by so many open worlds since it’s release so it’s amazing to see Tears of The Kingdom innovating and pushing the boundaries even if it’s being held back by switch hardware.
