I’m just assuming the “every NPC wants to bone link” thing was the result of some weird internal dev struggle
“OK, fine, if you’re going to reduce our mainline storytelling to the level of a low-budget kids’ cartoon, we are going to fuck up every single line of dialogue that doesn’t have to get voiced”
anyway it’s fine basically because it’s still nintendo playing to their (rediscovered against all odds) strengths and fucking up the thing they were already definitely bad at, it’s just funny that most notable open world games lately have been great mainly on the basis of the world design / lore / dialogue / storytelling and this is the exact opposite
anyway I actually have like 15 defense now so I’ll go find out just how bad one of the main “guardian” quests can be
I had read that but this one shoots ice!
oh you mean the breath, he only did that after the halfway point and it was hard to get there
