    Is anyone upset that he appears to be named link and you can't change his name

    I can never tell what's gonna set people off about zelda

    i mean i wouldn't say i'm upset at nintendo's continued stance on female characters in existing franchises

    just a tired disappointment

    No sorry that part sucks

    I just mean that you can't enter your name for the character like you have always previously been able to

    perhaps link is just your title, like "mega man" x

    I'm biased in this regard but holy shit in a block of time where game after game has been really exciting, Breath of the Wind takes that to another level. It is very super fun to antcipate mmhmm

    the Lifelike Interpretation of a Normal Kingslayer

    Today Nintendo gave fans just a taste of how The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild takes the franchise to new heights. Nintendo’s booth at E3 immerses attendees in the world of the game. As E3 attendees investigate Hyrule, they can explore the game any way they want because the world is so vast and players are not required to take a pre-determined path. This sense of freedom and vastness will truly come alive in the final game when the experience isn't limited by the restrictions of a show floor demo.

    During a Nintendo Treehouse: Live demo, Nintendo showed that heroic Link needs to be resourceful as he explores his environment. It’s important for players to become familiar with their surroundings so they can find weapons or collect them from defeated enemies. Food helps Link sustain his hearts and can give him a temporary boost or ability that will sustain him.

    The game breaks with some conventions from the series. For example, many of the minor enemies are no longer scattered randomly around the world, as many now live together in colonies. Link can climb towers and massive structures to get a bearing on his surroundings. He can even reach the top of mountains – any mountain he can see, he can climb. He can paraglide to lower areas or even use his shield to slide down a mountain. Link will travel across fields, through forests and to mountain peaks.

    The game’s wild world surrounds Link, and he must pay attention to changes in climate, as a shift in weather or temperature can affect the environment and his ability to survive in it. A sudden downpour might douse a roaring campfire or a lightning storm might be attracted to Link’s metallic weapons. Players might need to bundle up with warmer clothes or change into something better suited to the desert heat.

    More than 100 Shrines of Trials dot the landscape, waiting for players to discover and explore them in any order they want. As players work their way through the traps and puzzles inside, they’ll earn special items and other rewards that will help them on their adventure. Puzzles in the game often have multiple answers, and secrets can be found everywhere. Exploration and discovery are a huge part of the fun.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is scheduled to launch simultaneously for both the Wii U console and Nintendo’s next system, code-named NX, in 2017.

    For open world style games I think horizon zero dawn is still taking it for me but this zelda has me interested in a way zelda has not in years.

    I'm sure some people will be unhappy.

    And those people are monsters

    In Jim Sterling's video this week, he talked about how the people cynical about E3 have just as much rights to be negative toward the announcements as the people who are excited about them.

    On principle, he's totally right. Everyone's entitled to how they want to react to something. And yes, a large amount of parody images and comments add to the fun of the event, rather than detract.

    My problem is with the people who almost deliberately want to rain on other people's parade, finding even the smallest slivers of negativity and proclaiming it as "the worst thing ever" or "pre-order cancelled".

    Tolerances may vary, but it does get annoying.

    I can't decide whether I want BoW to have a small number of gigantic dungeons or a whole bunch of little dungeons spread out.

    It's a tough call.

    This is maybe the most excited I've ever been by a Zelda game

    I was stoked for Wind Waker, to be sure, and that game is a classic... but I played all the others after the fact

    Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess were cool (Twilight Princess in particular had a neat little story and aesthetic that gets overlooked because it's not as neat as Wind Waker's) but I was never hype

    Breath of the Wild has my fucking dander up

    During the conversation, which was translated by a Nintendo representative, we asked Aonuma if the rumors of having the option to play as a female version of Link are accurate. He said that he's aware of the conversations happening online, stating: "So yes, there were rumors like that, and we did discuss as a staff as to what would be possible if we took that route."

    However, instead of entertaining the idea of the player being able to choose the hero Link's gender, Aonuma said his team considered what they deemed to be the simplest option; making princess Zelda the lead character. "We thought about it," said Aonuma, "and decided that if we're going to have a female protagonist it's simpler to have Princess Zelda as the main character."

    This idea was ultimately rejected, because according to Aonuma "...if we have princess Zelda as the main character who fights, then what is Link going to do? Taking into account that, and also the idea of the balance of the Triforce, we thought it best to come back to this [original] makeup."

    They are just so colossally missing the point it's crazy

    This is why I thought Nintendo was not capable of making a Zelda game that changes it as much as even this already does
