What's the point of a waterfall in a game if it doesn't have a secret cave behind it?
To leap off it dramatically?
Have you ever taken a look at Hebra Mountain and noticed there's a huge circular hole in the middle of it? This video delves into why that may be.
Also, to zip up using the Zora Armor.
Slight detour here; I've been told that Oceanhorn is a Windwaker clone. I was wondering if anyone here had played it and what they thought of it, since I'm thinking of getting it while it's on sale.
I remember seeing Oceanhorn before. The only similarities I can see between the two are all basic stuff, like both being island-faring Adventure Games with a Heart Meter. Always wanted to check it out, I like its style.
ive played Oceanhorn. it's decent, definitely on the upper end of mobile games in terms of quality, but it gets fairly repetitive and some of the puzzles are quite obtuse. touch screen controls are obnoxious to me, but that's not really the fault of the game in particular, and i enjoyed it enough to keep playing it in spite of them, so take that as you will.
it's also nowhere near as good a narrative as modern Zeldas are. the plot isn't quite an Excuse Plot, but it's close. so if you play for the story, Oceanhorn isn't going to scratch that itch for you.
imo Oceanhorn also feels pretty sluggish. it's been a while since I played the Switch version, tho, but I remember that making me stop playing it.
im playing Breath of the Wild again because my girlfriend finally unpacked her amiibo. i killed a squirrel and it turned into an acorn. is that where acorns come from?
If you dig it out of the squirrel's stomach, yes.
I've learned that if you shoot the animals with a bomb or fire arrow the meat you get is immediately cooked.
.... I haven't been able to hunt the foxes since then, the noise it made was so sad.
....that makes so much sense.
So I guess using an ice arrow makes it frozen then.
What happens if you use a Thunder Arrow?
Nothing special, iirc. They just act like killed by normal weapons.
They get shocked and then die.
Surprise, there's no animation for it.
Even worse than the squirrel/acorn thing, shooting those little rinky-dink birdies you see hopping around (until they notice you and flee) produces a Chickaloo Tree Nut... in a game where there's nothing called a Chickaloo tree.
i think i got exactly one chickaloo nut in the entirety of my first playthrough. i had no idea you got them from the birds.
You can find some of them lying loose on the walkways around Zora Domain, as well, but killing the small birds is the best way to get them. I don't think they're needed for any clothing upgrades, though, and IIRC they have the same effects as acorns in recipies.
Jumping back to the acorns, if you bomb trees that don't have fruit on them already (apples, Hearty Durians, etc) they'll sometimes drop acorns.
Nintendo is going a fan art contest.
Well, as ways to gain cheap publicity go, that's pretty nice of them.
i just found a Rupee under a rock in BotW. i didn't think that could happen, i thought they took all of that out.
No it still happens on occasion.
Coins and occasionally minerals. It's just that you no longer can randomly swing around your sword and uncover a bunch of rupees any more from beneath the grass you cut. Occasionally one of the insects can pop up, particularly Restless Crickets, but that's about it.
Why would they take it out?
