  1. I still have SO much to look forward to, since I still haven’t truly started playing Breath Of The Wild yet. But it won’t be much longer, since I’m finally on Bowser’s Castle in Paper Mario Color Splash. When Boswer is defeated, I’m off to Hyrule.

    Off the subject a bit, if it wasn’t for hearing other people pronounce the word “Sheikah” in various videos (possibly even in this game), I probably would have forever pronounced it wrong.

      • I actually haven’t played Sticker Star. But I will say that Color Splash was highly underrated. I wasn’t expecting to have much fun when I first started playing. The card battle system annoyed me in the beginning. But it didn’t take long before I got used to it, and started loving the overall story and gameplay. I like this more than Super Paper Mario, that’s for sure.

    • Funny you kept playing Color Splash instead of switching over. I was playing Color Splash earlier, but as soon as the switch came I dropped it comoletely. Only on my like 2nd or 3rd Koopaling. How do they pronounce Sheikah? Ive always said it. (She Kah).

  2. How fun would it be to have them release the 2D prototype? :D

    And I can’t believe everyone dies at the end of the game!

    And how about that post credit scene when Nick Fury shows up and recruits Link for the Avengers.

    Oops, hope I didn’t spoil anything.

      • Oh s*** I can’t believe you really put that spoiler out there I didn’t want to give away everything! It’s like Luke and Leia in Star Wars all over again!

        PS. There was no wedding everyone. He was just pulling your chain about that part.

  3. I think I’ll save this for after I complete the game (by complete, I mean destroy Calamity Ganon).

    But I would very much like to share something with everyone. Minor spoilers ahead, nothing serious.

    At one point, you meet a character who can upgrade your Sheikah Slate’s runes. She has an assistant to help her with it. The character’s name? Robbie.

    My friend whom I got my Switch for, the wish I honored, his name was Robert, whom I affectionately called Robbie sometimes. Several times before his passing in December, he kept saying “I’m gonna help you get a better phone” (my phone had trouble playing/updating Pokemon Go, which we loved playing together). In Breath of the Wild, Robbie helps you get a better Sheikah Slate, which coincidentally looks like a tablet/smartphone.

    I started laughing and crying when I noticed the parallels. It’s like he’s trying to keep a promise he made me, knowing he can’t perform the full act, and taking the next best thing. I swear to you all I’m not making this up. I feel like I need to know what made the localization team choose that name for that NPC; I want to believe it wasn’t some luck of the draw.
