  1. Isn't there a stream today?

      I'm sure you can find many streams all over the place.

      I think so.

      Strike that it's starting now 

  2. Ahhh ok yeah I see what you mean. No worries dawg.
  3. Come on, seriously? That's clearly just sat amongst the grass, you can see where the actual floor is and there's blades of grass on top.
  4. That's the last day of Summer. No doubt it's a placeholder.
  5. This fooled me too, but the buckles are actually on the outside of the shoes, it's the fact his feet are crossed that make it look wrong on first glance.
  6. Yeah, this is a valid point. Maybe something not so restrictive then, say when you've completed the Divine Beast quest, maybe then Zelda would talk to you and give you a new quest to go find the sword, advising you to have it before you face Ganon. Or hell make Impa give you a quest for it when you return to her after the Divine Beasts. I dunno, I'm spitballing - I think I would have just liked to have seen a more guaranteed encounter with it.
  7. Well this is it, I thought these were all hints and teases at what was to come, not direct instructions if you know what I mean. Naturally I went Plataeu > Kakariko > Hateno, and from there had been following the Divine Beasts quest pretty closely, essentially just going directly between each respective town I needed to visit. I also went Zora > Gerudo > Rito > Goron. I did stumble upon the giant pink tree eventually, and I had heard from various NPCs the sword was hidden in the north so I figured that's where it was. I first tried to glide over to it from the west side and of course found myself getting teleported out, same thing happened at the main entrance so I figured I wasn't supposed to be there yet and left. I never encountered the NPC at the Woodlands Stable so I had no hints or whatever on how it to get through. I don't think how I progressed through the game is really at fault. This is not to say I haven't greatly enjoyed the game and overall, I think it's fantastic. But I did end up facing Calamity Ganon for the first time really confused, as a result of misinterpreting in-game hints and trailers of what I thought was essential content, and I felt that spoiled the Calamity Ganon moment for me. I think I would have rather seen something happen like for example, maybe you turn up to the castle entrance for the first time and Ganon puts a forcefield around it. To break through the forcefield you need to strike it with the Master Sword, and at that point Zelda tells you to go find it and you get a new quest. I don't think something like that would have damaged the open world design of the game.
  8. Well, I still consider myself relatively new to Zelda, my only previous experience of completing one of the games was Wind Waker, and beyond that I've played Twilight Princess and currently working through Ocarina of Time right now. I think I was fooled after seeing the trailers for the game showing the sword in the stone and all the cutscenes, that these were part of the main storyline. At that point in BotW for me, I had been handling all the Divine Beasts first and had just finished the last one. I hadn't been bothering with the memory flashbacks yet so hadn't seen the cutscenes in context. Up until this point I had felt the game was guiding me through it too, telling me to finish the 4 shrines before I can leave the Plateau, telling me to handle each Beast before I fight Ganon. That kind of direction on top of characters outright teasing the sword to me throughout the game, I had no reason to believe the game wouldn't direct me to it later on. EDIT: Also, The Master Sword is the sword that seals the darkness, the only blade that can kill Ganon? That's another reason why I expecting to need it.
  9. See, the Lost Woods actually really annoyed me. I stumbled upon them by chance and interpreted the teleport as the game telling me to come back later to get the Master Sword when the story had progressed a bit more, so I left. When I ended up face to face with Calamity Ganon I was incredibly confused at what was going on with the sword, so I left the fight and had to look it all up online. Kinda ruined those parts of the game for me to be honest. Why on Earth everything with the Master Sword and Great Deku Tree aren't part of the main game I will never know, so much great content potentially wasted if the player misses it during their play through.
  10. The comments are talking about Project 2017. I heard Iizuka mention USA and Australia, and he mentioned SEGA of America too. I think he's just talking about the Mania development team to be honest.
  11. Let's just have the gif in my signature plz.

  13. Interesting choice of words in this piece from Marza's website... http://www.marza.com/en/news/article/50 'A potential feature project'? Makes it sound like the movie isn't even at the point where it's been given a guaranteed production.
