I don’t think we have a Tears of the Kingdom thread? Feel free to merge this in with mod hand powers if I’m mistaken.
I’m excited to play this tonight even though (1) it looks very similar to the game they put out six years ago, (2) it will likely hitch pretty badly on the Switch, and (3) they seem to have doubled down on all the fiddly menu stuff.
The caboose of the hype train is a live demo this evening from Nintendo Treehouse.
having been very selective about what i read/see about this game i am planning on spending the day meditating on the fact that the last time they did one this way they turned around majora’s mask in like a year and a half or whatever, and this time they took six years. and then i will blast it into my eyeballs all weekend
i mean idk, i fired up botw with no expectations back then and i distinctly remember it making my want to crash my car almost the whole time i played it
(i am tempering my expectations a bit by reminding myself it couldn’t possibly be as good as the first reveal trailer four years ago made it look tho, like you just walk silently through caves leading a pack mule elephant thing to water and over bridges, looking for underground freaks)
nintendo is trying to trick me into buying these 2 game vouchers for $100 because this game costs 70 dollars american but i don’t want any of these other games i’m pretty sure??? would i really pay $30 to play slightly fancier advance wars in 2023?
Switch game region is permanently tied to the region of the account that bought it, even if a different account plays it. It takes an internal in-game setting to change language after purchase, which I don’t think exists in this case (I can change the voice acting but not the text)
I got it to practice my Japanese and the money saving is a side effect.
