(More!) Impressions of “Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”

(Previous impressions can be found HERE)

  • UPDATE: So apparently it is always raining in the Zora domain until you beat the giant metal elephant and so it was never, ever going to stop raining so I could climb the side of the bridge and shortcut into the kingdom, so I literally wasted an hour sitting on a cliffside and ranting at the rain for nothing. At least I got some cleaning done. Rain is still annoying but I’m less mad at it now.
  • I love having so much money but it does make me feel less enthused when I do an adventure side quest collecting dragonflies across the country and all I get is a “measly” 100 rupees. WEALTH CHANGES YOU
  • Dude who even needs heart containers when you can cook a bunch of durian and turnips and you SUDDENLY HAVE LIKE 20 HEARTS HAHAHA COME AT ME NOW YOU BIG FREAKIN’ MONSTER CENTAUR
  • On the negative side you better have like seven of those dishes ‘cause the giant monster centaur will take like 13 hearts in one go if you mistime your dodge jump.
  • WHY. IS. IT. SO HARD. TO GET. BACK. UP. BEFORE. THE GUARDIAN. BLASTS YOU AGAIN THISISSOUNFAIR!!!
  • The helpful hints they give during the loading screens are actually VERY helpful sometimes! I honestly did not know until like the third tower that you can sprint. Or that horses follow roads automatically. Or, just now, as I was rereading a list of them online to remember examples, that bokoblins will run if menaced by bees. Does this mean I can throw a beehive at them??? I must test this…
  • Did you know that if you fly up high and then fall and then try to shoot your bow you will SLOW-MO ACTION AIM LIKE A TIME-PAUSING SUPERHERO? Well you would have learned eventually because that’s how you beat the elephant but regardless, IT IS FREAKIN’ COOL
  • YOU. CAN. RIDE. THE BEARS.
  • YOU CAN ALSO RIDE THE DEER!!!!!!!
  • Best way to solve a puzzle ever: decide you want to see if you can ride the deer. Catch and ride a deer. Walk up to the accordion bird who tells you a riddle. Realize that the answer to the riddle is literally “ride a deer” because you are currently sitting on a deer caught in this very field and the answer is literally under your nose. You still have to go out and catch the boy deer because you’re riding the girl deer but even so. ACCIDENTAL BRILLIANCE
  • Unlimited bombs solve everything. Don’t want to be pounded by a Hinox? Bomb it. Find a skull-cave full of bokoblins? Climb up the back side and shoot bombs through the nose socket until they are decimated. Need fish and don’t want to chase them? Bomb them and they will float the surface. BOMBS ARE GREAT
  • Also if you switch rapidly back and forth between the square bomb and the round bomb you can bomb twice as fast!!!
  • Just don’t bomb yourself. You will feel Really Dumb every time.
  • It’s great how Beedle the traveling salesman is at every stable you pass, and when you initially go to each stable manually, it even seems realistic that you’d “just run into him again!” The facade starts to break down a little when you, like me, stock up on arrows by jumping from stable to stable, and Beedle is ALWAYS THERE even when you JUST SAW HIM TEN SECONDS AGO. Beedle: Actually a teleporter???
  • Going to the Great Fairy Fountain is like walking into a tailor shop only to find that the tailor is a gigantic burlesque dancer who wants to breath on all your clothes. In short: it is kinda awkward (although to be fair not NEARLY as awkward as those… ladies… from Ocarina of Time. *shudder*)
  • I seem to be creating a personal trend of trying to get into major areas through the backdoor only to find that it is impossible. I mean, I was gonna have to explore back here anyway, but dangit, I wanted to get to the Korok Forest sooner…
  • Awww, what do you mean I can’t bring my horse to Goron City? *sees lava* *heat rises* *clothes burst into actual flames* Ah, yes. I see.
  • HOT HOT HOT HOT WHY AM I STOPPING TO FIGHT THIS MAGMA ROCK MONSTER HOT HOT HOT WHAT DO YOU MEAN EATING A MEAL CANCELLED ONE OF MY FIREPROOF POTIONS HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT!!!

Bronze Elephant’s Foot

This is a life-size Roman bronze elephant’s foot, made more than 2,000 years ago around 300–100 BC.

In 218 BC, 37 African war elephants marched over the Alps into Italy under the Carthaginian general Hannibal the Great. He attempted to conquer Rome to avenge the defeat of his father, Hamilcar Barca, but he too was beaten.

This fragment was once part of a huge relief sculpture probably intended to adorn a public building or monument and commemorate a Roman victory over the Carthaginians. The elephant wears a band of metal as armour over its toes. The foot was recovered from the bottom of the Mediterranean sea between Sicily and Tunisia in 1999. See it on display in our Storms, War & Shipwrecks exhibition.
