I make it to Hateno Village and screw around, looking into all that it had to offer. There’s shops, houses, a malicious statue that steals your essence and sells it back to you, a weird dye-man, and people with horrible, horrible faces.
I also encounter the dumb ball-rolling maze “puzzle” of the Myahm Agana Shrine and counter it being awful by just bouncing the ball over the maze to the end.
I start heading towards Hateno Village and come across my first Yiga ninja person… who is just absolutely trash? I’m not super sure if I was supposed to be threatened by her.
And then Ganon throws a fit and brings all the slain critters back to life, because he’s a jerk like that.
I finish up in Harvest Valley and the Earthen Peak before heading back to the Shaded Ruins and having a chat with Manscorpion Tark. And then we murder his wife! Good times.
I fool around in the Shaded Ruins for a time afterwards before heading into the next area to Brightstone Cove Tseldora and backtracking to a PvP area.
I make it to Kakariko Village, meet with Impa to learn about lore and the like again, and then find a bunch of chickens for a VERY SAD MAN. Oh, and we get more stamina after finishing the nearby combat tutorial shrine.
Like with Dark Souls, I completely disregard health for a very long time in preference of being able to do some pretty dope maneuvers.
Just sketching some Splatoon. I’m very glad the Splat Brella is available for multiplayer now, after a MONTH of it being in the singleplayer, but I still hate how Crusty Sean’s Gear Ability drink tickets seem to be utterly worthless.
I continue on towards, through, and past the Dueling Peaks, completing multiple shrines and activating a Sheikah Tower which will all surely be content claimed by Nintendo.
Jokes on YOU, Nintendo, nobody cares about what I do.
Anyways, I get the Sheikah Sensor and a horse, whom I name Bubba.
