Remember the winners were selected fully random (we had no impact on the selection which was done automatically through Gleam). Both I and Joseph were surprised when we saw that all of them had names beginning with J. But in return the winners are from three different continents and entered the giveaway at vastly different times.

How does third place get the game, but second place gets the amibo? Shouldn’t it have been the other way around? Lol

Calling Skyward sword "one of, if not THE greatest stories in the series." is just......... wrong.

OK, so maybe it's the couple beers I've had while watching this, but dammit I wanna see Biker Link get his own game! We'll call it Legend of Zelda: Five Z's.". SWORD FIGHTS ON MOTORCYCLES!!!! XD

Honestly, I think BotW stands as a great argument for the delaying of games until they are actually finished and fully ready for release. On the other end, you've got No Man's Sky and many other games that were fully released only half finished. I guess what I'm trying to say is #FuckEA. ;~P

actually loz skyward sword is one of my favorites from the serie along with ocarina of time I don't know why a lot of people consider it a fail , also motion controls are perfect for this game and it have an awesome story.
Richard Baracat (8 months ago)
I couldn't agree more! Skyward Sword for me is the best alongside BotW

Great job on the video, guys. Very detailed and informative.

It is obvious that they postponed the release in order to make it coincide with the Switch launch. And that was the best decision ever made in Zelda history.

0:30 Ahhhh I don't think so. Does The last guardian ring a bell? maybe FFXV ?

An interesting thought to consider for this game is that the original game made for release WAS different from how it turned out. I feel as though the beta version of BotW was akin to Link and Zelda fighting Calmity Ganon prior to the events in BotW. 10,000 years prior to be exact. I came upon this idea because the Guardians are an interesting concept and it felt as if that the developers were originally going to have the game be about using the Guardians for the first time against Ganon. All those times Kass tells stories of the past 10,000 years ago, was really the developers giving an omage to the never-to-be released version that they had created and then changed to introduce better concepts and gameplay.

Breath of the wild takes place after Four swords hyrule
Adrian Ho (1 year ago)
the developer is smart. shame he sacrificed quality story a bit. both could have existed
Sander vdent (1 year ago)
Am I the only one to see a lot of GnG and SGnG ánd Maximo influences?
christopher hayes (1 year ago)
it's so obvious that Nintendo were struggling with an open world Zelda on this scale. SO they went to Bethesda for help. Bethesda were like ok, but we want skyrim on switch. Nintendo OK DEAL......

Personally I didn't like Skyrim as much as the rest of the internet does. But I've been a huge Zelda fan for years and I can say that Zelda: Breath of the wild is probably the best game I've ever played!

PixelVoid Productions (1 year ago)
Possible Epona Spoiler: I found Epona in my Link amiibo when I tapped it. I got it on my first try, not sure how rare it is, and I can only imagine it is Epona. It had 4 spurs. Also I spawned it on the Great Plateau, so I had no way of registering it. I THREW IT OFF THE CLIFF THOUGH, YAY.
Jess P (1 year ago)
PixelVoid Productions haha, same!. its the smash link that does this, to be clear. and after you register epona, subsequent amiibo scans of smash link gets you treasure and specific outfits.

Was I the only one that didn't like Hyrule Warriors? I could tell it was a well made game and everything, but I aggressively tried as hard as possible to play it, and I couldn't enjoy it. Although the game is characterized as an action adventure, it feels very different than playing a real Zelda game. I could barely get to the forest area before I quit.

Why so biased on the J names for the giveaway?
DragonChi26 (1 year ago)
Just had an interesting thought. In this video, you claimed this game as being Aonuma's Magnum Opus. Which I wholeheartedly agree with. But what got me thinking was, that, this game has been compared to, a number of times, Studio Ghibli's "Princess Mononoke" which also just so happens to be a Magnum Opus, by Miyazaki. An intriguing observation if I do say so myself.
