butt touch (づ￣ ³￣)づ (___)___)
I refused to click the notifications bell for the longest time. But! I enjoy your delivery and honesty. You’re a hell of a salesman I’m going to get a switch with Mario Odyssey AND gonna try a dollar shave club starter box! So the first and probably only Bell I’ll ever click is for this channel. Thanks for the great content
Mario..... Smh it's just Mario it may be a good game as games go but to say it's the best or better is just pure bias, I will not be buying odyssee, on the other hand i will purchace paper Mario when it does comes out for the switch.
Mario Odyssey has brought me joy that most games these days can't even come close to. Most games I play are rigorous online competitive games, so games like Odyssey and DOOM 2016, for example, just make me happy when i play them. And yes, Mario Odyssey is worth getting a Switch for.
Yea well that's your opinion and i am fine with that. But i find Legend of zelda of breath the wild is a much better game, i have tried both and i think odessy is also a amazing game. But it gets kind of boring with the moon hunting.
This is a very well done and explained viewpoint, with a good perspective of both pros and cons. I personally prefer Zelda for it's gorgeous art style and freer exploration, less structured and guided in a way. Plus the physics are awesome for rediculous deaths 😂
Tbh i do think oddyssey is a good game, I did enjoy it, but I didn't love it. To be fair, I'm not a big fan of Mario games. I just found post game boring, I've collected 695 power moons, and I don't feel motivated to get the rest of them. I'm a much bigger Zelda/Pokémon fan, yet I don't own botw nor do I plan on getting it. My favorite game on the switch is Splatoon 2.
Both games amazing. I played Mario 50 hours. Played Zelda 140 hours. Zelda to me re-ignited a love for games inside me I hadn’t felt in years. Over Horizon, over all my PS4 games, (in thr 200s), and over Mario, Breath of the Wild was a transcendent experience. Best game I’ve ever played
Y'know what? There are people who love both franchises and prefer Mario and there are people who prefer Zelda as an franchise and also prefer BOTW over Odyssey. I grew up with Mario and I had NEVER played a Zelda game in my life. So my opinion is clear right? I love Odyssey hundred times better than BOTW. Well it happens to be that BOTW was one of my best gaming experiences EVER and Odyssey was just a fun game.
I am not a very confident gamer because I was always the player two. My big brother was always better at every single game and realized every single trick while I grew no confidence at all asking always help at every situation and pausing the game every time I saw some enemy.
BOTW was built beautifully. The character progression happens in game too yes but the most important progression that happens is your skill. If that would have read on the game I would have never picked up Zelda and dreaded the game because I had zero confidence in games. When I tried it I died atleast seven times on great Plateau and I was getting vary and tactical of every enemy. I avoided Lizalfos and by the time I was at Kakariko Village I realized how massive and fun this experience will be. With better weapons I fought bigger enemies and got more confidence. I learned to sneak strike, do the fast attack thingy etc. And by the time I beat the game and started again in Master Mode I didn't die a single time in GP. I beat the shit out of the blue bokoblins because I had superior skills than before.
BOTW was designed to be easily approachable to normies like me but it tricked me to buy a game that would actually advance my skills and confidence as a player. There are little games nowadays that trust the players this much and have the skills to create a game where the most important progression happens in you not your equpment and level. The real level points and experience point are in your head. On top of that open world games and Zelda games were completely unknown to me so the experience is fantastic.
And also BOTW's soundtrack is propably my favourite soundtrack in every game ever. I cried a lot and got so many goosebumps on how the music was connected to the grand and dramatic experience and lore that didn't feel over the top. It served the game just right. Just for some context I get 95% of the time NO investment in main characters or love stories. I just love the unspoken grandio and gameplay the game has.
They nailed all of these things and I think BOTW is a masterpiece not only in gameplay but gamedesign. Sadly no other companies will take notes because designing a linear game with linear progression system sells more and designing a progression system like Zelda is incredibly time consuming and propably irritating and hard. That is why I thank the guys behind Zelda, THANK YOU for having ambition and innovating.
I'd say the alleged dissonance in the art style works more than it doesn't. What Olly omits to state when talking about 3D world's art direction is how uniform it is. To me, Odyssey evokes not a mish mash of contrasting art styles but rather a sickly sweet Saturday morning cartoon and this is, in my eyes, the first game that has actually managed to nail that look! Is it intentional? I'd say so because the majority costumes you can purchase seem to be ripped right out of NES/SNES era mario games and even the super mario cartoons! It feels like a new generation of developers have taken the helm and created the first truly significant mario game since Galaxy!
“But when you finally get that moon, it’s SOO rewarding”.
I must be playing a different game than everyone else. The controls were great, but the game was sooo easy, I felt like it was designed for children under the age of 10. Which is fine by the way, I just didn’t find any challenge, and getting moons certainly didn’t feel rewarding. There were a lot of moments that made me smile that I thought were clever, but if we’re comparing it to the quality of ‘Breath of the wild’, I feel like it’s not even close and ‘Zelda’ is the far superior game.
how can odysee succeed bptw, then odysse was not even good enough to be "good" (it ist ok and much better than galaxy but not enough to be called "good". People simply like odysee because they are too traumatzed by 3D World and galaxy)
I like botw, but for me, odyssey is far, far superior. The controls in odyssey are so much more technical and players are rewarded much more for being *good*. the movement is nowhere near as responsive in botw, especially jumping and the bow. so botw skips and more advanced moves are more rune hacks than technical jump combos.
I honestly only "really like" botw, while odyssey is my favorite 3D mario and maybe top 3 mario.
