hopefully nintendo compensated the artist they got "inspired" from (the one who made the original miis)

An empty automated world just got more empty lol.

It did? How so? This discovery opens up all kinds of opportunities for custom NPCs in modded BOTW.

can you mod Switch games? I'd have thought Nintendo would ban people for it.

I thought you were trying to spell one of the grunts Link makes.

You obviously never played it. That 97 metacritic speaks for itself.

Highlighting why scores are by and large worthless, honestly. No open world game is nearly perfect, and Breath of the Wild is further from perfect than most. I say that as someone that played the game beyond the necessary point for completion, looking for what was supposed to be great, while only finding average.

@Lucky you are full of crap, you don’t even have a Switch. If you do prove it and send me your friend code. I’ll see how much Breath of the Wild you didn’t play.

You definitely have not played it.

@luckytrouble if the game was that bad then why did you "play it beyond the necessary point of completion" then?

Funnily enough, I picked up Switch few weeks ago and started Zelda BOTW (my very first Zelda game at the age of 35) last night. I can immediately tell that the game is going to be amazing and super engaging. I was planning just to have a quick test drive but ended up playing for 3+ hours. Normally I don't like open world games. I used to but now I'm just so fed up with those. But BOTW feels so special and different. I didn't have this feeling e.g. with RDR which I couldn't even finish.

"Automated"? You mean like....every video game ever? How is that even a criticism?

Anyone who ends their message with that childish ‘laugh out loud’ is beyond hope.
You must be a teeny bopper.

I mean if it works and no one noticed until now then I don't blame them for taking a shortcut.
