The other smart thing would be to fix the breakable weapons. I can understand them breaking if it was only the wood weapons and the rusted blades residing about. But not new ones OR the Master sword for that matter (well it doesn't actually break but it does lose its power and you have to wait a while before using it again  :P). I just hope the next Zelda title doesn't have breakable weapons in it.
Could be worse, They could do like Fallout 4 where you have means to repair and upkeep weapons, but it does away with the entire breakable weapon mechanic.

I must be the only player who liked the breakable weapons component. A mate of mine hated it as well, and apparently a lot of people didn't like the 'slip' factor when climbing in the rain.

Bare in mind that shields have broken since OOT, with the wooden shield being able to be burned. It's only that Zelda was always an items-focused game and never considered the reality that other items can break too.

Playing BOTW: I've completed 104 Shrines and the Champion's Ballad DLC. (I've had a crack at the Master Sword DLC a few weeks ago but didn't complete it.) I have to say that the actual "Shrine" of Resurrection was pretty good.

I haven't finished either one, but I did get all the shrines.
I'm kinda waiting for the Playable Zelda mod to be finished before I go back to it.
On the other hand the Linkle mod was just recently released too, but I think I might save that one for when I restart on hard mode.

I have it on ps4, almost made it platinum. It has a very nice story, cool battles and an awesome soundtrack. One of the best games i played on ps4 and of the ys series.

Wasn't there 100 shrines initially prior to the DLC?

I know I have 36/42 Shrine quests complete so there's at least 110 in total.
I thought the extra shrines in the Champions Ballad would add to the final count but it doesn't look as if they do.

Replaying Resident Evil 7 for all the files and Mr. Everwheres.

Also slowly playing through FF XIII for the first time. I love the menu design and can appreciate the infinite hallway gameplay but can’t really get into the characters.

Hang in there, they do get decent development. it's one of the reasons I liked XIII a lot.

Playing Tales of Berseria. I only bought it yesterday and I might be halfway through it. Talk about power-playing! It's the first of the series I've tried though I might have checked out Tales of Phantasia on my SNES emulator. Can't remember it's been a while now  :-\

Good lord. Finally put down Nioh after 5 solid months of play. It got a bit too grindy trying to boost my gear for the DLC boss levels on Way of the Nioh difficulty. But the Abyss was fun...at a certain point the game really forces you to become efficient with the bosses, instead of relying on living weapon or just getting lucky. Fantastic game. Money well spent, to say the least.

Playing Curse of the Moon now. I was planning on getting all the trophies, but I really don't feel like going for the Boss Rush or un-powered solo Zangetsu trophies. Besides, it's way more fun with all 4 characters. 

Might play Wind Waker HD next. I've really been wanting to dust off the Wii U, and I never did get far into the original WW. Got past the first dungeon and sort of forgot about the game after that.  :-\

Touhou Rock Maiden FC.
Never imagine there's still a good origin-faithful NES-era retrospect work, in 2018. I beat the game before Curse of The Moon launched, but eventually went through the final stages again because they are all great nostalgia sections; the overall difficulty is easier than most classic Mega Man games because they decided to make the charged buster shot similar to Mega Man 5, 6 and X series. And they got rid of punishment factors from their earlier works as much as possible in order to bring better first experience to players - to the point that I actually enjoy it as much as I enjoy Mega Man 2 and 3. It's almost like it's intended to be released on the real NES!

Dayum, the previous Touhou Rock Maiden titles were hazards and never run in right frame rate on my laptop

BOTW Master Sword DLC, on final trials. It really does make use of the environment, I'll give it that. Do I love it? No, but it's reasonably creative. Although I wish they made it like a mini-open-world rather than constraining it to hubs all the time.

I still have to find the remaining 6 shrines which hopefully happens sooner than later. I really want to 100% the shrines and then move onto Axiom Verge.
