    A friend of mine got his Nintendo Switch and but not his Copy of the game today. Nearly lucky bastard. System is asking for an update but the system won't connect to the server. Doesn't this mean Nintendo has the update blocked until launch day?

    Wish I would of gotten mine today. I am itching to play Zelda. The torrent I found the other day turned out to be eur and lacked the title key. I downloaded it over night. I reported it to the sites admit to have their comments edited, since they lied clearly about it working.

    It is going to be a long week waiting for the Switch, game and guide.

    Nice graphic but one of the worst zelda ever for me.
    Breakable weapon... Link that get tired after run...
    I'm really tired to see these "real" features in a "videogame" (videogame, not realgame). What's next? If your character dont eat something will be a instant game over?
    That's that: is not a new videogame "experience" like some and developers said, this how to ruin the fantastic videogames universe with ridicolous realistic things.
    So, technically, if people really like realistic videogame, they must throw the game through the window after a game over, because, as everyone know, in the real life you cant re-try after you dead...

    Is it me or does this new Zelda game lack of good rendering? I'm not that excited about that grass. (We are living in anno 2017 so I expected more ..... 'finer' details).
    Hopefully the story is great though.

    All with all, I'm not that convinced (yet).

    :)

    @Hells Malice Wow, calling someone 'kid'. Nintendo had some 'good' graphics. But when you read closely my post .... (which you did not do). I said 'anno 2017' which suggests I am curious if there is some improvements in the future or which is NOW.

    @owek1 Thank you for that wonderful suggestion, I will pay more attention to the font types and words.

    Wow... Hell has frozen over. Edge just gave BOTW a 10/10. The 19th game to ever get it from Edge.

    No, Nintendo has never had good graphics really. They're pretty much always behind the curve. They have had good AESTHETICS though at times. I like the looks of Windwaker or Twilight Princess for example, but i'm not delusional enough to call them "good" graphics. They're pretty low quality, but the aesthetic saves it.

    You seem to be doubting BOTW because it doesn't have the latest and greatest in graphic design...well no shit, the Switch isn't the most powerful machine out there. It has a good aesthetic, and that's all it really needs. Poly count has never been Nintendo's thing. You wont ever see top tier graphics in a Nintendo game.

    @Hells Malice Yeah, I can agree with that statement.
    But thats whats bothering me though. Why are they behind that curve, they had more than (what we know) five years to develop a somewhat new console.

    Yea there system tech is always behind. Idk what it is. They try to do the best with what they got and they go far from the pack and end up shooting themself in the foot. When it comes to 3rd party devs.
    Also i think they aways aim to be the smallest system.
    Every system they had have been pretty darn small, that might play a part it in. But you can say they always do something different. (N64 controller,Wii mote, gamepad, joycons, glasses free 3d etc..)

    Thats because there only made for that. They have a partner ship. Plus zelda is made by some workers at nintendo. Cant think of his name right now.

    Already know im getting the game lol. So ill pass on the reviews until i get to play it.

    Problem is they Paid for sure. Zelda is never a 10/10. I played all the Zeldas before and the new one is: Good Graphic. Done.

    The Game just lack on Different Content. You go and make Temples to get Points all the time. The Riddles even in the High Areas are pretty easy. The AI is very dumb, you can kill Boss Spiders just by stand behind a Wall.... even one of the Titans can be killed very easy :o

    Maybe they fix it in later Patches but for the Release Version the game isn'T a 10/10. Maybe as Nintendo Game, because Nintendo has no good Games but yeah.

    That doesn't make sense. They don't need to pay anyone because everyone is getting Zelda regardless. Kinda like Mario games. It would make sense if it was a completely new game nobody has heard about before.
