Okay so, that’s not fair, I guess? I skipped from Majora’s Mask straight to BOTW for 3D Zelda games, so I forgot there’s like a realistic-ish 3D Zelda that’s also built like an old school Zelda. WTF is an “empty bottle”, lol. Do I need to “upgrade my wallet” at some point? Utterly deranged.

Okay so I beat the first dungeon and I’m starting to get on this game’s wavelength. A lot of the mechanics (rope balancing, the first boss fight where he grabs your sword) don’t feel right, and I think this is due to porting them from a controller you hold to an analogue stick. I’m going to “stick” with it (haha) but it’s obvious that it’s not playing as-intended.

I’m in the Lanayru desert and when I enter a section that’s in the past (ie: the robots were still alive) the mix of the music changes! Yes!! New techno tracks get added and the reverb is removed. Amazing detail. BOtW does this trick too, I guess this is where they got the idea.

@ashfurrow Nintendo has always done their best with sound design, they do this stuff all over. Even sunshine has it wish Yoshi.
