    Do they level when you beat them? I'd understood the whole game got harder when you defeat each divine beast...

    oh shit:

    Don't avoid combat.

    That sounds like a misunderstanding to me.

    There is something that gets unlocked when you beat one of the beasts that makes the game slightly harder/more annoying but not really.

    I wouldn't worry too much about any of that stuff. It's a game that is best enjoyed playing it on your terms. It's that open. Just enjoy it.

    And as with all RPG type games the combat just gets easier and easier as you get more and more tooled up. Again, the feeling of it being hard at first is part of the game design. Don't stress it.

    Play the way you want to play. That's the beauty of this game. I never felt punished for my own particular play style or for fleeing certain battles.

    There's certainly a risk reward loop, which you can indulge as much as you want.

    I personally never got to grips with beating Lynels, much beyond wasting Ancient Arrows into them. Did not really hinder my enjoyment or progress.

    I was going to ask you to tell me what that was, but then I remembered... you mean the Yiga assassins right? They were pretty annoying.

    Not played this for about a year. Defeated 2 Divine Beasts (Zora and Geruda). Should really return.

    Oh if I could wipe my memory and return to just one game it would be BOTW.

    I think you can nibble on my ginger nut sack.

    The latest VR update for this game has improved loading times by roughly 5 - 10 seconds (depending on the shrines you visit) and general performance on the overworld. overworked that such things were ever an issue for me, but it has got the speed run community excited.

    I started this in master mode yesterday, with the intention of giving it quick try just to see what it's like... and ended up playing for around five hours. Even after 170+ hours on my normal slot, it still has that incredibly addictive "let me just pop down to see what's around that corner" quality.

    I've left the plateau but not sure yet if I'll stick with master mode - at the moment having to play a bit carefully and utilising creative methods to beat/avoid enemies is fun, but not sure if it'll become tedious after a while.

    I found the regen health in baddies just too much later in the game. Fights went on forever and itís obvious the game wasnít really designed to be played that way. The game is more than hard enough normally tbh.

    Yeah, I've read this as well. But I figured that the combat is not the game's greatest strength anyway, so it would mean I'd pick fights very carefully and generally try to avoid most enemy camps. Did you complete it on MM?

    I could easily do a replay of this, what an utter masterpiece of a game.

    I finally finished the thing a month or so ago. I'd rinsed out all the shrines, all the Champion's Ballad DLC. It got to the point where I was just hoarding high-level weapons for no real reason, even Lynels didn't really feel worth killing anymore.

    It was a great game, but I think I'm done with it for now, and I'm not enough of a masochist to try the Master Sword Trial or Master Mode. I think I'd need to wait a couple of years or so if I'm going to play it again.

    Hmm, I think I'll just do another normal playthrough then, and limit myself on hearts or something to give it a bit more of an interesting challenge.

    Yeah, I listened to this a few days ago (which made me want to start another playthrough), and I particularly liked the discussion of intrinsic vs. extrinsic reward motivation when playing these types of games. (Also, my three-word review of the game was mentioned on the podcast)
