You're on Wii U? Yes I'm using the disc version.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

I think I'm probably playing this the complete opposite of every reviewer trying to frantically complete the story to get a review out in time for launch. And it's been heavenly. Even if I'm not saving Hyrule very quickly.

Before launch I was wondering how this game could be so highly praised where others weren't. Having played it, it seems pretty clear that to make a world both this huge and perfectly sculpted, every year of that absurd development time would be necessary. It was frustrating seeing it being chased over the horizon year after year of Wii U, but now I'm very glad it's here on the Switch. It's a huge adventure, and being able little chunks as well as mammoth sessions makes it significantly easier to make progress with it.

And the most exciting thing is that everyone here has probably been playing it completely differently.

Managed to take out one of the huge one-eyed moblins that rip up trees. Turns out Link isnt the only thing that gets struck by lightning while wielding metal. That it targets both Link and the enemy is an awesome touch.

I also named a horse "Glue" due to its tendency to stop and get hit by terminal laser fire.

went to a shrine that had a guardian in it.
it was pretty hard. with only 4 hearts currently, the thing starts taking it's sword out and shield spinning around, you can always hide behind the wall and once it attacks the wall, it well break it, thus getting dizzy, i always start attacking it every time it did that, once you get to point of bring it health down in the middle it well take off it's weapons and starting spinning around with it's laser, i used the ice arrows to stop it from doing that, than attack it. the last one is where it well begin shooting at lasers none stop, i've died a couple times in it. but finally was able to beat it, now i need one more shrine to get 5 hearts!

This.

I can't find an activity log, but I'm willing to bet I've been playing this game for over 20 hours now. And I've still basically only explored Central Hyrule and Necluda, and haven't visited any dungeons or giant mechanical beasts, or Zoras, Gorons, Gerudo, or Rito. I've spent all this time finding Shrines, taming horses, doing the memories quest, getting a whole bunch of gear, and trying to get to ganon. It's all so beautiful and engaging, and so big!

@Dezzy Playing on Wii U here. I have noticed big drops in Kakariko Village, not enough to discourage me from exploring, but they're definitely there. The second village is a lot better. Haven't been to other places though. It's a shame, Nintendo games are always very polished, and they usually hit a perfect 30 or 60fps..

I was watching some YouTube videos and noticed the HUD and that stupid green circle look way out of place with the rest of the screen, I'm surprise Nintendo didn't make it 50% transparent.

Also, why is there not a BotW thread in the Switch forum?

I've got my Switch version here that I will play when I get a Switch next year (waiting for a price drop and system bundle, huge backlog, no hurry) but keep hearing about the frame rate issues on the Switch when docked making me think I maybe should have gotten it on the Wii U instead?

Wait you bought a copy of Zelda but you haven't got a console to play it on?

So I found a chest with a very, very strong blade inside. I couldn't pick it up because my inventory is full as always, darn you Hestu! I will keep there for later when I might need it. So it won't just magically disappear right? Because I will be pissed lol

So I've been playing the Switch version all night, saw some legitimately breathtaking events, fought some amazing set piece bosses, and this one time the screen froze and restarted two seconds later.

'Frame rate issues,' lol. I've almost never seen the techy crowd overstate anything this hard in my life.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

On the theme of doing things in the wrong order, I seem to be getting more hyped for this game every day since I've owned it. On Thursday I was mildly excited for the arrival of the Switch and Zelda. Of Friday I was thinking things were pretty cool, though the combination of 3 miserly heart containers and a newbie's ineptitude at the game made it hard to fully hit my stride. It definitely lakes a lot longer to get accustomed to than any other Zelda due to the sheer amount of stuff Link can now do, so I found myself hitting the wrong buttons quite a lot at first. Saturday saw me gain some momentum however, and I spent almost the whole day playing it on the TV, and much of the night playing it in bed, and then couldn't sleep for hours afterwards because I was so excited about the idea of playing it again.

And despite all that playtime, I still feel I've made almost no progress with the actual story. Which is brilliant.

Anyway, that's enough from me. Off to play Zelda.

I struggled a lot with the Water boss. His constant attack spamming along with the restriction in movement and the fact I only had 5 hearts made him more difficult than he probably should've been. I ended up having to restock and finally beat him afterward. Where we supposed to hit back the ice at him? Mipha said something about using the ice as a weapon and I wasn't sure what she meant by that.

I think I have been playing for 18 hours or so (switch version). Only completed 16 Shrines. I was wondering what people were choosing as priority with hearts & stamina? I chose Stamina the first couple of times

I'm surprised at how far everyone is already. I've spent roughly 3 hours playing so far on Switch and all I've mostly done is cook food and collect 1/4 of the stones...

I actually plan to buy the official guide since I'm so worried I'm going to miss out on something important. I'm really enjoying the game though, it's my first Zelda game since Super Nintendo!

How did they make this game? I have these constant "wow" moments, be it scenery, world design, enemy design/encounters or overall depth. I feel like I'm playing a game for the first time in my life, I've never felt this way with a game in long time.
I don't want this game to end lol, luckily this game is HUGE. And I'm so relieved there is more coming by the end of the year.

So how are you guys feeling about this game? Lol.

@Spanjard I am loving the game. Taking my sweet time doing anything lol.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

@Spanjard From someone who has never been a Zelda fan, this is the game I was wishing they would make. They nailed pretty much every aspect of the game and did so with everyone having a different experience.

Definitely one of the best games Nintendo has ever published.
