TLoZ: Breath of the Wild – PART 16 – Vah Ruta
After TAKING REVENGE upon the Lynel, I ride the pretty fishman into combat against a giant mecha-elephant and purge it of evil, releasing Mipha’s soul from its imprisonment.
It’s about this point that I realize that this game very easily ranks as one of my all-time favorites.
… I shout while repeatedly jumping up and down on a guy’s head, cackling like a madman.
I decided to cut this clip out of the last episode because I enjoyed, at least.
I am real glad the second chapter started with this episode, because MAN! was I at a loss for what to title this one.
Anyways, we get: a bit more insight into Bana’s shady, behind-the-scenes dealings; someone ELSE dies and then un-dies so Rex doesn’t have to face the consequences of his recklessness yet; we team up with Nia; and get killed by a bird on our way to Torigoth.
I meander through Zora’s Domain, harassing the elderly who are rather bitter that Link led the beloved Zora Champion to her death, and then get killed by an angry lion-centaur.
I travel across Draper’s Ward, avoiding the turf war between the Hatters and the Dead Eels, while trying to retrieve Lizzy’s boat from the mutinous Edgar Wakefield… and just sort of lose my mind while trying to marry a couple of unconscious people for Granny Rags, resulting in me jumping up and down on a guy for a few minutes.
Get it!? Because we’re two hours in and our main character’s already been killed by an edgelord in a mask and mugged by a trio of crabs.
Also, Pyra’s design is just awful. Why did they decide that the best direction for her would be “shrink-wrapped stripper”?
In this episode, I make my way up the river in the wretched rain; through tons of enemies, many of which were electrical; drowned once; and got a touch of lore before finally reaching Zora’s Domain.
