That's playing the same game. But buying another version of pretty much the same game every year and repurchasing the micro transaction and whatever cosmetic crap that don't carry over. I dunno about that man. But then why do I care. Haha

Oh you mean like buying FIFA or COD or AssCreed or Far Cry year after year... but to be fair they do offer something new eg new story campaigns. Sure the formula might be the same, but still there's something new no? Those sports franchises are moving away from yearly releases already. Most fans buy the yearly releases for the new rosters no choice, but now with the new models they can update the rosters online eg FIFA Ultimate Team.

Is there a game franchise that's the same release after release?
Happy 40th birthday to me! 7000th trophy and 130th plat - Batman Arkham Knight!

only speaking about COD and sports games, not saying AC. they are still reusing the same asset and tweaking things here and there vs a brand new game, new IP, new lore build from ground up like CV. but i guess gamers generally dont like new stuffs.

i guess they focus more effort on how to milk gamers with MT like how they wanna show everyone what items other players get when they open lootboxes to entice people buying more lootboxes. or how when one player killed another player, they will immediately show the player being killed what weapons was used and point them to purchase that, and etc.

no lah, sport games are still annual full price release. why would they go that expansion route when they are still getting good sales from the current business model?

so sometimes i feel like ppl like AJ and Jim F sterling are fighting a lost cause. this kinda things are basically caused by gamers, the companies are basically just doing whatever based on the data that they have. but of course sometimes they are pushing the bar further though. end of the day, it takes 2 hands to clap.

Botw is the first Zelda game that I dislike :lol:
1) Weapon durability sucks
2) Rainy weather fk up climbing, you will slip
3) Stormy weather will get Link struck by lightning if currently equipped with metal weapons. Game doesn't tell you that and this idea is just dumb
4) Control placement are bad for swapping items
5) Map too big and barren. Pple diss dw9 for that and botw is the same but nobody kpkb
6) Almost no bgm
7) Way too many mountains and link climbs damn slow like he has a pair of dua lanpa
8) Scaling tower like farcry to reveal map point of interest uncovers nearly nothing other than activating a fast travel point. You will still have to rely on the damn beeping radar to find shrines and it doesn't tell you up or down
9) A big portion of this game content is to clear shrines trials to upgrade either health or stamina
10) Weak plot
11) Various weather conditions requires different gear to counter or else your hp will drain damn fast til game over
12) Horses won't come running to you if you are too faraway. Can only summon from stables and stables do not have fast travel point. So you will have to fast travel to nearest shrine or tower, walk to stable then summon your horse everytime

I might stop playing and sell it. I rarely stop halfway but this game annoys me alot. Link's Awakening is so much better than this so called goty.

Is there even full voice acting in this game?
Seems like having no trophies in games is a good thing. Can play halfway then stop and don't need to worry about the unfinished foot print.

There are a few foreign languages, english and japanese audio to choose from. But cutscenes that utilize that is short and rare. So it really doesn't matter to me. Doesn't help it. The main content of this game is shrines, trials, side fetch quests. The main missions and story is the side content here :lol: There are 120 shrines I think, 4 shrines 4 spirit orbs = 1 upgrade = 1 heart or a quarter circle of stamina meter. Master sword needs 13 hearts to pull it out. Even if got trophy system on Switch, I don't care :lol: I don't even have friends on switch or need to play online. I just sub one year for cloud save and the nes snes games.

Oh OK. 1 thing that kinda turns me off is if the game got too much reading like how fist of North Star and I believe yakuza games also like that. At least if got voice acting I don't need to read. Lol...

My first playthrough was in Japanese. Didn't really regret it cos there are many dialogue which has no voice acting. The English dub and the Atatatatatatatatata not bad leh. Only cannot stand the move names.
