Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Opinion: Rain in BOTW is a positive addition to the game

If you are just referring to the RNG weather system, then I'm guessing you also hate the lightning because if that ever pops up in a region you want to fight something with just metal weapons then you're going to have to sit under a tree (or away from a tree) and wait that one out too?

Yeah, I'm just done with you and your changing the subject.

Nice opinion

Lol, maybe put down the keyboard, go do some laundry and come back later to see if the thread has people who agree with you instead of listening to me telling you there are ways around the issue you're having which you would have collected in the first 5 minutes of play. 

I've not changed the subject once, the subject is simply understanding and overcoming the challenges of a game. Your attempt to call them bad design because you do not understand why they're in the game is what it boils down to. I think the game wouldn't have gotten the rating it achieved if the game didn't challenge the players as it did.

Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

We don't speak about Skyward Sword. 

I do.

Edit: and yeah Rol it is true. It's always daytime and sunny in Skyward Sword (despite there being a cloud barrier in the sky (????)). Since the gameplay is limited and linear, they decided to make it always look pretty instead of having weather in the game. Night-time only exists in the game if you sleep on a bed in Skyloft, and is limited to only three islands if I recall correctly.

Woah boy yes you do.

Not bad

Campfires don't work in the rain.

This is going to be my last post in this thread.  The behavior of the some fans of Breath of the Wild in this thread has been terrible.  There is no reason any of you should have mocked, questioned my maturity, or insisted I was playing wrong because I used a solution that works for a problem that, in your opinion, isn't how you're supposed to play.  Instead demanding I use solutions that often do not work.

Instead of thinking, just for a second, "Hey, maybe it is a design issue if it caused this person to disengage from the game," you each went on the offensive in order to reflexively defend your precious game.  It's not a perfect game and it does have issues that people will not like.  It's time for you to sit back and accept that instead of going on the attack.

I've read all this thread and you are just being stubborn. 

People have given you a dozen different things you can do to work around the rain, and all you come back to is "I want to sit my controller down and wait it out" and then bitch that its a horrible game mechanic and made you quit the game. 

You won't be missed. There was no discussion to be had with you.

Besides, you can climb in the rain. Link climbs three times, then jump, the rain will slide you down some but you will be up higher than when you started. Keep doing that if you are so persistent on climbing the damn wall in front of you. May have to eat a bit of food to make the full height, but climbing is 100% possible in the rain.

Or go make a camp fire and sleep to make it go away. Don't say their is no cover. Make some cover. The game lets you do anything. And doing anything will be way quicker than setting the controller down and twiddling your thumbs checking facebook on your phone.

He has taken the same method of combating the challenges in game as with the challenges others raised here. We were unfair, used badly designed arguments and for the time being he has quit, perhaps he will return when the sun comes out and we stop raining on his parade about how terrible the game is.

Look I never wanted to come down harsh in my posts or go on an attack regarding how I love the game, I absolutely do love the game but as I've said before, it's very possible for someone to go into it and not get the same experience that I found in it, if you would enjoy more tutorials and a little more story direction then Botw isn't for you, it would be more likely that someone would enjoy an assassins creed type game which gives you far more ushering in the direction the game wants you to travel.

As for people being mean regarding the "solution" to just not play the game until the rain stopped... I don't mean to be mean by saying that you're doing something in one of the most backward ways, but the game offers so many other options than sit back and smell the daisies for 10 minutes, but if you rather play breath of the wild enjoying some of the rainy scenery then that's awesome too, the game is so open to be explored and enjoyed in many different ways and styles, my main reason to come down on the method as being daft... is because Nightly doesn't enjoy the way he is tackling the tasks and seems to want to think that he is doing it the only way possible as such it's not the fact that he is doing it wrong, but that there is no alternative to his choice as such the game is flawed.

As for campfires go out in rain.... aye they do, but there is cover oppertunities literally everywhere in the world

Anyways he chipped off, the game is out for 2 years, I guess if someone feels one way or the other about it now that opinion is unlikely to change after a few forum posts on here.

When life gives you lemons..... in flate them and use them to sail into the sky! Pick up a Korok leaf before take off as well and you can use the gusts to have more control of your aircraft / treetrunk

Fantastic.

Stuff like this is why I love BOTW so much.

This is just one possible solution, and not only is it more fun than putting down the controller and waiting, it's also faster too, as it's still raining when he reaches the top of the cliff.
