>>257798408 There's a brief moment in a video that's clearly a "not meant to be part of the show", and you can hear the frustration and anger in Arin's voice at being stuck at "use bomb to blow up wooden blockade on island"
>>257798823 Tetra just falls in a cutscene that triggers when you get close. But really, the game has enough "rolling into things knocks them down" moments that you should know to at least try it on the Deku Tree.
It kind of makes me remember a time in Links Awakening where the random solution to opening a door in a castle was to throw a pot at the door. I thought I was so Zelda savvy because I thought there would be a hidden switch under a pot, or a bombable wall, but no, you pick up the pot and fucking throw it at the door, which I called my friend stupid for suggesting
>>257801340 You don't have to roll into the wall to get it. It's possible to throw a stick and break the pot. You can also jump onto the little shelve, But the game gives you enough hints that rolling into walls knocks stuff down works. The sword masters brother screams if you knock his pots off the walls from the Dojo downstairs
>>257801470 I thought I was the only one who thought that was odd. I had assumed it wouldn't be the solution. Tried it, and went "Oh god, this is the type of weird shit the game is going to do from here on out". And I was right.
It's a pretty unintuitive mechanic regardless. I even knew about the mechanic, but I didn't really even think to use it at that point. It both doesn't make sense in world, as the player often expects creative solutions to problems as opposed to brute forcing your way to a solution, and it doesn't make sense in real life logic because they are sticky goo in a giant tree which you are supposed to knock off with your head
>>257803417 I think it makes sense that you could use it to knock down pots from shelves, but, Chu-Chus are pretty sticky so I guess you're right there. Still, I feel like there was some kind of tutorial before Dragon Roost Cavern, teaching you this.
>>257800958 If you visited Oshus before you were required to progress (you probably would because you get stopped as you pass his house), he tells you to roll into the wall and his brother yells from the top floor that all of his shit fell.
They're pretty shit. Sometimes it's not as much their fault as people make it out. They are running a show first and playing games second, so they need to focus attention on being entertaining, they shouldn't be paying attention to arbitrary flags or lines of dialogue that are shown in a cutscene that you have to remember to advance the plot.
However in terms of pure skill, they are still shit regardless. Fucking simple games a child should pass easily they make look challenging. I do think they should stick to games they know, or read a guide as they play though. Their current Castlevania 2 run is entertaining because they are reading a guide, and aren't staggering around in circles wondering where to go next
Like I said earlier, even if one were to see that tutorial, it's still easy to just not think to use it. I mean, when you are presented with some problem in a cutscene it makes you want to use a creative solution. Pots on shelves, or skulltullas in trees aren't "problems" so much as just a bonus item for players to obtain. If this situation was presented in a way that felt less like a puzzle, I bet more people would catch on quicker. Like, if you were just exploring forest haven, and some skippable korok mentions that there is a green chu on the deku tree's back that has a rupee, I bet players in that situation would more intuitively just roll into the tree.
