    What Are Some New Gameplay Mechanics You'd Like to See in Tears of the Kingdom?

    A bit more integration between the movement/climbing and the enemy encounters. The closest thing to it in BotW as it was the were Taluses, but I can't shake off a vague feeling of jankiness about them. Something approaching Shadow of the Colossus would be nice, though the climbing mechanics here...

    Will the stats get carried over?

    I mean, the premise will seemingly involve fixing the Master Sword, which already assumes Link has it even though it's optional in Breath of the Wild. Would be weird if not highly unlikely for stats to carry over given that. One oddly neat wrinkle in this setup IMO would be for the Link we'll...

    What do you wish Zelda did more of?

    I'd wanted to see how overworld bosses panned out since before Breath of the Wild did it. Hoping next time they do it there's a bit more variety, though that by itself was a shakeup I appreciated nonetheless. In fact, some more breaking with typical dungeon -> item -> boss structure in general...

    What would it take for BotW 2 to become your new favorite/least favorite Zelda game?

    Mostly avoiding complacency and stagnation. Just as Breath of the Wild was a kick in the pants for the series to drop its "formula" and do something interesting again, my hope would be for any game following it to explore new feelings to evoke and experiences to provide. Being adventurous, as...

    What's your favorite forgotten older game?

    A DS game from like 2009 called Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure. It's a platformer where you fight enemies in a Mega Man Zero style -you can shoot in front of you and have a sword, or rather cane- on the top screen, and enemies you beat get thrown down to the bottom screen where they...

    If SSHD fails again will this game get a brief resurgence before BOTW2 comes?

    If what you mean is that there will be a spike in new Skyward Sword opinions, I would expect that too to some degree. Especially since from what I've heard, almost everything Nintendo publishes on switch seems to sell at least decently due to new customers looking for stuff to play, so more...

    How many times have you played BotW?

    At least 3 times, probably 4 or even 5. At least one of those was left unfinished though still far along and the other one is a master mode run I only picked back up a few weeks ago. I have one profile for my original file if I ever feel like going for 100% (hah, yeah right) and the other one I...

    What is Your Favorite thing about Your Least Favorite Zelda Game?

    Skyward Sword has vaulting over moblin shields and I'm still hoping they make a full mechanic out of that. Oh, and Twilight Princess had that one quest before the city in the sky where you look for seals under statues or something like that, I don't remember. I find late game fetch quests...

    What Are You Doing In BOTW?

    I've been jumping back in lately to try and actually finish a master mode run. Two things that come back to mind from the last time I sat with the game: I decided I'd try to climb that one tower that's surrounded by sparky wizzrobes and lizalfos. Got killed several times and used up most of the...

    What options/features should be a standard for every game?

    I was surprised to see Dragon Quest XI has a plot summary at the ready for every time you start up the game to remind you what was happening last time you played. Sometimes I drop games for long periods of time and feel lost when I eventually jump back into them, so this works from the practical...

    How do you feel about digital going into the 9th gen?

    Physical is in a weird spot. It feels gimped since due to day one patches there's not even a guarantee the game will ship complete on disc, at least for a while. There's also how physical console games still get copied to and read from internal storage anyways, disc being effectively more of a...

    New Capcom zelda game

    Probably not that relevant, but it's funny when you notice both BotW and SS share director with both MC and the Oracle games. Probably not the biggest thing in common since it's just one staff member (as far as I know, I'm too lazy to comb the credits right now) and the games are very different...

    Games you want to play again but cant

    Catherine because I don't have hard drive space for it. I've been reminding myself to get either an external hard drive or a physical copy of the game for that, never gotten around to it. At this point might as well wait until I can get the rerelease whenever... who knows when. I'm slow at this...

    Rate the Last Game That You Played

    Bloodborne, which I've wanted to play for a while and only did recently. Not having played any Souls in a while, I had to relearn my old play style and then unlearn parts of it to adjust to some of BB's particular quirks. Fun times, no sarcasm. Right now I'd give it a...

    Are you still following Zelda because of the good old days?

    I actually really liked ALBW and like BotW the most out of the 3D games, some of which I used to like quite a bit, and I don't think any preexisting fondness I had for the series translates for them. In fact, even though Ocarina was my intro to the series and WW used to be my favorite, I haven't...
