Okay, just to recap:
Made it to Gerudo Town. Haven't made my way inside yet, but I'm about to. I'm a little upset at the Hateno House, because I'm the kind of guy to save all those special weapons you get once you complete each dungeon. Unfortunately, Zora's Domain, Goron City, and Gerudo all give you primary weapons. But Zora's Domain gives you two: the Lightscale Trident and the Ceremonial Trident. This would be all well and good if there was enough wall space but, unfortunately, there isn't. I'd like a "customise wall" option to suit my needs. I don't need 3 bow slots.
I've started using Revali's Gale, because it doesn't really make the game easier. Just a little less tedious.
Prince Sidon is easily the best character in this game. He's the Rock Lee of Zelda and I fucking love it. "Have I not mentioned how incredible you are? Or how thankful I am? Because you are, and I am!" I also think the lead up to the fight where you ride on his back is one of the better situations the game sets up. If it's not the first, it's just behind the Rito Village pre-fight.
In retrospect I should have done Zora's Domain > Goron City, THEN Rito Village and finally Gerudo Town. The design of the game seems to play it in that order. I still think it's incredible that in my first playthrough I completely skipped the main objectives in favour or exploring Neclude towars South Faron, which eventually lead me to Gerudo, my favourite portion of the game. Sometimes deserts in video games can be a little annoying, but I think BOTW makes it enthralling to explore. Not to mention the fucking SAND SEALS that still puts a grin on my face every time I do it. Nintendo really fucked up revealing that in the trailers, but then again if you're watching trailers for things you're going to buy in the current year you need to give your head a shake.
The game is still as good as the first time I played it. Aside from a potential Master Mode playthrough, I don't want to touch this game for a few years after the DLC comes out just to preserve the game's freshness.
