Gorgeous. Loving this playthrough immensely. Just escorted the "burning wagon" and wiping the sweat off my brow. Now on to Zora temple...

Goron mines done, love this game once you shake off the slow opening.

Agreed. That's the one thing I'm beginning to not like about the more modern Zeldas. They take too damned long to get going. I also just finished the mines and sitting at about 8 hours play time.

Finished the main game today and I loved it! I do admittedly still have to complete the Cave of Ordeals but for now I'll put that on pause because Pokkén's arriving on Friday.

Definitely. During the early hours it was kind of boring but as the game progressed it got way better and much more interesting.

EDIT: I'd give the game a 9/10 but since I encountered some weird bugs and "Hero Mode" uses the mirrored Wii version it's not a perfect score. Still totally awesome!

Anybody else having volume issues with this game? There seems to be two categories of games for the WiiU when it comes to audio in my house. Loud or low. This is one game where I have to give the amp another 4 notches to hear comfortably.

Are the audio settings on your Wii U set to Surround or Stereo? I had an issue with some games' audio that it didn't work properly and after switching to the Stereo option it was fixed.

I honestly can't remember which was the game but no probs since then.

I'll have to look. Thanks for the info.

They made it ever so slightly more complicated to make bomb arrows in this one, which is odd.

Just started the game. Vaguely remembering certain parts. I find the fishing a little more difficult without the Wii Remote.

Complicated? You just press the bumper while hovering over the bomb in the inventory screen (at least when using the Pro controller).

Yeah, select the arrow and then the bomb with ZR (or ZL, I can't remember precisely). Don't see the complexity in this.

Loving the HD version of this game. I've only played the Wii version a handful of times (no more than four) and I guess that's a good thing because if I like REALLY knew the game inside and out, the "mirrored" version would definitely trip me up lol.

I beat this a few days ago. the game does so much right, loved the soundtrack, and really enjoyed the dungeons, but I can't put it up there with my favorite zelda games because of the pacing. it really brings it down for me, every time the game builds up, it slows down again to make you collect things to progress, would've loved a dungeon rush mode in the remaster

Agreed on the pacing. This is the only Zelda I have yet to finish. I played it on Gamecube and for some reason the final boss fight was bugged for me. As soon as the fight would start I would immediatly get sucked towards him and get killed. Never tried again until the remaster where the lack of ANYTHING while travelling long distances and some other niggles stopped me at the snow mansion.

I have a question about data saving on the amiibo. I bought this game mainly for the amiibo that comes with it, since I'm collecting all the Zelda amiibo but don't own a Wii U. I heard that you can save your profile data to the amiibo... my question is, would I be able to start playing this game on my niece's Wii U and then in the future if I ever get my own, continue the same profile by just scanning the amiibo, or would I have to start over from scratch? Depending on what the NX actually is when it's finally released, I might just get a Wii U to play Breath of the Wild (I heard the NX might only play downloaded games).

Good question. I'm not sure if the Amiibo data is NNID based or not. I think the Smash Bros Amiibo let you take your data to a friends system (which would be a very similar situation) but I'm not certain.

Has anyone played the wolf dungeon that the amiibo unlocks? I never opened my doggie, it looks nicer in the window box than it would collecting dust with the rest of the collection, and if the extra dungeon doesn't really offer anything substantial, I'm content to leave it in the package.

I know it gives you a friend in the new one, but TBH I haven't been in a hurry to play that one.

The main prize is a wallet upgrade so if you need that it is worth it. Otherwise if you arent using it for breath of the wild it doesnt benefit you much if you want to keep it sealed. I have an nfc card i sell for $5 if you would like to use the amiibo for its in game uses.
