A little flaming bit that was edited out (some people quoted it on the first page).



Around the Network

I loved the game. But, I'm not spending money on this DLC. These are features that normally get added into games for free in the months after launch.

And, yeah, as others have mentioned, everyone knew this DLC was gonna be weak since the day it was announced. The next one sounds a little better. I'd buy it day one if I could get it as a standalone. As it is, I'll have to wait and see what people say.

Agreed, this should have been a free update.



I find it hard to make an argument that BotW should have included even more content than it did at launch.

I agree with this statement, while also objecting to charging for this DLC.

It's fine for it not to have this stuff at launch, but that doesn't mean it should be paid, either.

IDK.

I felt like I got more than enough content for $60. I'm okay paying for extra.

I'm fine with what I got (and what I'll still get) for my money, but that doesn't mean it should be done this way - it just means I'm a dumb fanboy who will buy whatever they throw at me.

You shouldn't buy stuff that must be included in the base game, and I say this because both the Trial of the Sword and Master Mode are things that could've made BotW to be much, much better.

The Trial of the Sword was obviously meant to be part of the main game, but got cut out by orders from Nintendo's big bosses. However, they didn't take into account that if they blocked the content by a paywall it would feel kind of underwhelming for many players in the end, as the Trial recycles a lot of the elements presented throughout the adventure. Had the Trial been part of the main game, general perception of it would have been very different, because right now it's quite mixed. Almost the same thing applies to Master Mode.

It's not like Nintendo cares too much, anyway, since they got exactly what they wanted: new buzz surrounding the game. But the thing here is that we end up paying 20 dollars more.

Trial of the Sword probably could've been in the main game, but I cannot see Nintendo cutting it from initial release just because. They were probably in the early stages or just in brainstorming mode for DLC before announcing it prior to the game's release. I dont think they meant to cut it for DLC, but it also has been almost 5 years since the game was in development and people in many social media and forum outlets have already cried out their frustration with the lack of news and delays of this game.

And as for reception, I think the initial news on it was mixed, but once it came out, it was more positive from what I've read.



Botw has so many things wrong. The durability, the dlc armor not upgradable?? WHY NINTENDO? Tell me just one reason beside of all the devs were on LSD while making the dlc. Also amiibo armor not upgradable? Why? I want my full armor up with dark link. But no. Oh i forgott. The LSD.
