    Breath of the Wild Is Breath of the Wild a good foundation for the future of Zelda?

    Eh, people loved to gush how game changing and good Ocarina was and how it gave them twee memories of being lil' wee tykes barely old enough to hold a controller, easily forgetting that fans of the even older Zeldas had those same twee memories. The difference being however is that the first gen...

    Ideas for Returning to Previous Lore/Chronology for Future Zelda Games

    Looks like Aku's going to be the unpopular one in this thread... I personally think TP is that third game, as it follows the natural outcome of the CT and the H's S is grown up child OoT Link. He's helping his descendent TP Link learn the secret skills passed down in their family. That's his...

    10,000 years before Skyward Sword

    The only thing I would say is that I had actually kind of wanted it set 10,000 years in the past, it would have 'explained' why there was so much advanced tech hidden in ruins in the later games. Take away the several references to OoT and it could easily be reset to take place in the past.

    What do you want Zelda Switch to do better than BotW?

    Dungeons- I think the next game needs dungeons. However, I am not calling for Wind, Forest, Fire etc., type dungeons you'd find in most games past OoT. What I'm thinking of is old ancient and spooky ruins that lie underground, that are falling apart and that contain buried history. Old tombs...

    Accepting Zelda post BotW

    I would have to disagree on the 'old Legend of Zelda' bit. OoT only replaced something that was even older, it was not the original play style or game structure. BOTW is sort of a return to the oldest play formula, one that some fans who got their start and grew up mainly playing OoT are not...

    Will the toilet feature a bigger role in the next game?

    You could wee at any toilet in Duke Nukem, and in DN3D there was one cutscene of him ripping off a Battlelord's head and crapping down it's neckhole. What was nice in that game was that you could actually step in lizard alien poop and track it everywhere, but for some reason human turds in DNF...

    Breath of the Wild What Do You Hate/Dislike About BOTW?

    Second DLC- Now don't get me wrong, I liked the fact that we did get a second DLC and that it helped flesh out the Champions more. But, and this is a BIG BUT- I didn't like that it was set in the 'middle' of the story instead of fleshing out the ending more. Zelda's comment about Vah Ruta no...

    Things That Are on Your Mind

    It's just inherent where I'm at right now. It's the near-bottom floor, and while it does get some sunlight, it's not enough to grow most plants easily. The main ones I can grow are orchids, but anything else requires a lot more effort. However, I do like the darkness and being underground. It's...

    Malice theory

    I wanted to pick both, since they both can apply. Malice is pure evil and disease, it is Ganon's creation, to fuel all that is wicked. I think it is a sort of cast off ectoplasm, that used to be a part of him. It often 'instinctively' tries to coalesce into some sort of physical body...

    Rate The Last TV Series That You Watched

    Star Wars: Rebels is a series I'd been watching that ended not to long ago. I think I'd rate that a 9/10. The current series is My 600 Pound Life, but new episodes only come on once every couple of weeks.

    Haven't deleted anything, and haven't yet had any followers. It is possible that I am blending in, but more then likely it is because I lurk more then I post, and I just wait for something interesting to show up to comment about.

    The Continuation Timeline - Breath of the Wild Timeline Theory

    They actually stated that they deliberately chose not to say where BOTW was on the timeline, because they saw people people playing their own way and coming up with unique ideas on when/where this game sits, and that's what they liked to see in players. One of my favorite theories about this...

Hopefully they change up the formula though, the last 4 movies were set in a jungle, had morons let loose the dinosaurs, and then had final boss meat-eater come save the...

    Egg Nog

    I like spiked Egg Nog, especially with rum, although I will only drink the stuff whenever I'm playing video games like co-op Left 4 Dead. For me, video games and some light booze go well together, especially when you are playing with online friends.

    Yams, a.k.a sweet potatos. Tried every which way to eat them- raw, baked, boiled, stuffed in a zucchini with cheese, candied even. Cannot get past the texture and taste, and gag almost every time. This is no way shape or form contributing, but in their candied form, they kind of remind me of...

    I didn't forget Urbosa's quote. In fact it was being talked about that it was weird that a piece of writing survived for so long.

    Spoiler BOTW Interesting Theory information

    Do you mean how it is possible that he managed to remain sane despite being isolated for 10,000 years? Simple, he no longer has a human mind, plus he probably spent large portions of that time inert, likely just passively 'monitering' everything through some sort of low level mental telepathy...

    Breath of the Wild Are your hopes for the BotW story expansion high?

    I liked the story, even if it was a bit bare bones. I also liked travelling and discovering the story rather then have it spelled out for me, because it gave a reason to talk to people that felt more 'natural.' I don't know what will be exactly in the DLC, but I think it will be about learning...

    Redeads and who created them

    I'm guessing the Redeads only occur whenever Ganon is around, otherwise you'd end up expecting Hylians to cremate their dead to stop them from coming back. As for what they are? They are naturally mummified corpses, most probably wearing clay masks placed on the face from some Hylian funeral...

    Depending on what might not be in the DLC 2, I'd say content that lets you explore some of the lands/islands further out at sea.

    I don't think GG was actually ever a good thing.

    Disputing the Downfall timeline

    Oh no, I'm not bothered at all by the idea that OoT Link loses.

I know there are people that hate the idea that this Link loses, but at the same time, even as...

    Eh, I'm just going to be blunt and say that maybe DT should be it's own alternate universe or timeline (or one branching at SS instead) where OOT simply never took place. That way there would be the two logical timelines post OOT, and one where you don't have to engage in mental gymnastics just...

    Age of the Next Link?

    I would like to see an older Link, about mid to late 40's or older.

    Breath of the Wild BOTW Monster Appreciation Thread

    I wonder if we could get the 'friendly' monsters again like we used to have in the older games. Like those moblins (or that Hinox) you'd sometimes find hiding in caves, who'd give you rupees to leave them alone. I always wondered if they ended up hating Ganon and his evil, and had to hide...

    I like that it's a nifty mechanic to respawn monsters, and I love the ominous music and weather changes that accompany it when it happens.

    Breath of the Wild Were the towns in BotW big enough?

    Kinda. I think what didn't work so well was not that there were small towns, but that tne game still follows the 'tradition' of 'one settlement per non-human/non-Hylian race.' If there were multiple settlements of the other races, maybe the towns' sizes might not feel so... inadequate? I think...

    Nintendo Doesn't Know Yet (NDKY) theory

    It's likely why they flung BOTW so far into the 'future.' They were starting to run out of creative breathing space, and they knew it. I am wondering if they had been starting to feel 'cramped' by the timeline itself, adding in stuff that was supposedly 'limited' to one timeline, muddying up...

    Is Zelda getting too easy?

    Agreed. People might say politely that the games 'need' to be easy for casuals to jump into them easier, but put it in honest terms, it's just dumbing the games down so that some random doesn't have to *gasp* make an effort. Problem is though, I'm wondering if the devs might still be greatly...

    Breath of the Wild Was the 10,000 year timespan of BotW too much?

    I think they did it to have people be much more able to mentally separate it from the older games and while also giving a plausible reason why the games will be going in a different direction. They did acknowledge that they needed to move away from OoT, so the massive time jump was a way to do...
