Hey! Listen! 2011 called, it wants (99% of) its guide back!
Isn't Skyward Sword pretty much the easiest 3D Zelda game?
@Dezzy should I get this Zelda game. Never played SS hd despite me owning a Wii
@anoyonmus Yes, it's fantastic imo.
It's not his latest adventure but still is a good one
If you've never played it, yes this would be a good opportunity. It's a great game, and this version has a whole bunch of improvements.
@Dezzy No that's Wind Waker.
This game surprised me a lot so far, graphics are top quality with lots of detail and motion controls are super fun. I'm glad I got this
Going to Walmart tomorrow to pick it up. Most exited I have been for a game in a long time
@Dezzy Already preordered.. it’s the very beginning of every Zelda game ever -storywise-.. at the very least it’s worth a play for that alone! Never beat it again after the first time because it was such a pain to play on the Wii.. but as far as I can see they have fixed all the BS that I hated the first time around.. especially if you’ve never played it.. it’s 100% worth it.. I’d bet my life on it
Am I the only one who is struggling to performe the spin attack in handheld mode?!
I hope Nintendo will update the game and allow you to use motion for the spin attacks instead.
@DaniPooo You just gotta move the right analog stick left>right>left quickly. Treat it as one movement. I had a little bit of a hard time getting the hang of it but I had more trouble with the diagonal slashes. I am just not used to the traditional way of combat like in the other zelda games and BOTW.
@RikkuPendragon I am loving the game so far though. Just gotta get a hang of the controls and I am good to go! I loved this game back when it first came out.
@RikkuPendragon I know how to do it, I just find myself being to slow most of the time, and sometime I'm getting at an angle.
You need to be fast and precise and that's not too easy.
They allowed you to perform a spin attack by motion input in Mario Odyssey (Even in handheld mode). For me that would work just as well here.
