    My hope is that BotW rejuvenates the Zelda series a bit; TP and especially SS were way too interested in getting the player to the next checkpoint than giving them reasons to explore the overworlds. You could argue that SS didn't even really have one.

    Oh boy. You have no idea the freedom you have with Breath of the Wild. And you can also explore. A WHOLE DEAL of explore.

    I get my copy this Friday.

    - Star Fox Assault RS or CS (Yoshie Arakawa and Yoshinori Kawamoto)

    I have to wait 'till like May to play.
    I have to stay away from Nintendo news site and videogame sites in general because otherwise I just know some asshole is going to spoil it all for me.
    This is the first Zelda game ever for me which I didn't know the backstory/timeline placement of beforehand. I wanna figure that shit out for myself!

    And a well known meme reference, used more than once in the internet when something expected is about to come.

    If Zelda gets more open-ended than the previous titles, then that means a non-linear structure may contrast with the "follow the sequence the game's upgrades order impose on you to advance". That would be a nice change! No matter how far we traveled by boat or on horse in the past we always had to stick to a established path with a few distractions along the way but real progression only in the mandatory course...

    Nice reference on Majora's

    The whole game is based in exploration and doing what you want, man. It's so different from the other Zelda games, yet it retains the Zelda feel to it. And it'll be a landmark as big as Ocarina was in 1998, trust my words, this is not just hype talking.

    I tend to think that, when it comes to Zelda, all the hype ends up justified.

    I wonder if some reviewer will give it an 8.8/10 just for kicks

    Has ever been a Zelda that scored low? Right now I don't remember any...

    It was on their 'most anticipated' list every week for years.

    It HAS to be. They took their damn time just to have it boost Switch sales.

    If BotW seriously did boost Wii U sales, I wonder if that would be gratifying or embarrassing to Nintendo.

    Zelda is to Nintendo what Resident Evil is or was to Sony.

    It won't boost the Wii U sales, most people, unless they can't afford it, will go for the Switch version.

    Bought the damn game (Zelda), happy now? HAPPY NOW? This is ridiculous, VOEZ, Zelda, Bomberman and Blaster Master Zero... so many cool games... It's good to be alive - as a gamer. At least.

    Yeah, this part is true indeed. "Pickyspot" is drooling over it. Some "Pickyspot" users are too busy doing "the hater's job".

    OK, the Zelda game, it is pretty swell in fact! Bomberman is crap though, I can't believe they sell it at full price! VOEZ is impossible to play and Blaster Master Zero is just annoying - with good music. So... that dang Zelda is the best game at the moment for Switch - wowwow!
