I'm a newfag to the series. I have time during the summer so I plan to finally play BotW and this. Is it a bad idea to play them if I have not ever played a Zelda game, other than a bit of the remake of Link to the Past?

Manifesting that my preorder arrives tomorrow so I can waste all my free time this weekend playing!!! If I have to wait until next week to play I might just rope

There's lore that connects the games but unless they're direct sequels like botw and totk the story lines are independent and you don't need to worry about missing anything.

>tfw just beat final boss
won't spoil anything but I loved it, it fixed all the main problems I had with breath of the wild and overall felt way more like a real zelda game with a retarded yet charming gimmick that really appeals to me as someone who loved scribblenauts as a kid. am currently mass producing autism machines and staring at links perfect ass in the yiga armor, life is good.

please remember to use ascend-kun, nonnies. thousands will be filtered by ascend puzzles, crossing the lake in the beginning area, and the depths. obviously doesn't matter what order you do the temples but rito ability hard carries just like in botw and has the chillest boss.

I am obsessed with how good TOTK has turned out to be so far. I've played 50+ hours of the leak and there's still tons of content for me to find and do, and everything is just so much better than BOTW. It really blows it out of the water imo.

No. 295958

I'm really conflicted on whether or not I want to play TOTK. I really liked BOTW but this seems really samey. I know there are multiple maps, but idk. Might watch a bit on twitch before deciding, but I feel like the only interest i have in this one is to try and relive the feeling of playing botw for the first time

No. 295965

this is like a fully realized version of botw. if you liked it at all, you'll like totk. if you hated it, you will hate totk slightly less. it fixes most of the problems critics had with botw to varying degrees but not all of them. this is the first game I've spent every possible moment playing since botw.

I think more than enough has changed to warrant getting it if you liked the first. I just went back to kakariko village because I wanted to check up on Paya and the rest, and I was shocked at how much was going on there and how much there was to do!I think I'm probably gonna be there alll day tomorrow. So much has changed that even if the landscape is familiar to you, you'll have plenty of suprises and new people to meet.

Beyond retarded ?, sorry, but…honestly, I'm wondering if I should play TOTK on emulator instead of my switch lite. I am enjoying it, though the resolution isn't great, the battery runs out quickly, and I'm starting to realize the world is super beautiful and I can't really fully enjoy it on mobile. I do have a tank of a gaming PC and a controller I vastly prefer. I'm also just 40 minutes in.

No. 296874

I think i preferred the feel and aesthetics of botw, i hate the look of the zonai stuff and preferred the kind of soft-post-apocalypse feel of botw. I don't want the kingdom rebuilt lol.
Also the abilities felt more like they complimented each other in botw. I'm not very keen on having godlike time powers over being able to move metal around.
I find it really frustrating that the characters won't refer to the events of botw either beyond sometimes recognising you. Are those events ever addressed?? What suddenly came out of hyrule castle if it wasn't ganon?
I just want to run around more unblemished overgrown landscapes forever tbh.
Yes I'm still going to finish the game lol but the Zonai can go back underground tbh. They're ugly furry bait and their tech is nasty and brittle looking.

No. 296881

You can use grab, time reverse and ascend all in tandem with each other so I have no idea how you can think that has less synergy then some bombs, magnets, an icecube, and wonky inertia. None those can even be used well in succession in botw because the control scheme for the powers was UP ON THE FUCKING D PAD. Also the ancient tech in botw looks like a toddler pressed playdough into a premade mug. the zonaite robots at least look like they're ancient and made out of stone, not some polymer crap

No. 296891

>i preferred the kind of soft-post-apocalypse feel
To each their own on that, I like seeing hyrule rebuild a little. Imo everything about this game has been a massive upgrade over botw, from the flow of combat to the abilities and their synergy with eachother to the insane puzzle design and so much more. The dungeons too go without saying; even if they're structurally similar to the beasts, the vibe and not recycling the same boring ganon boss changes everything. It's all to the point where I don't think I'll ever bother playing botw again, feels like it's balding.

>over being able to move metal around

But you can still move metal around along with a billion other things and then glue them to eachother… Magnesis is a pale imitation of ultrahand. The new abilities can do everything the botw ones did but better.

No. 296892

Can balance out my shilling by saying I still don't like the main plot of this childrens game. I didn't like the prophetic gayness in botw and I don't like it here, it's more fun when link is just some cute retard. Dare I say Zelda as a character is somehow even more shit than before. Least they don't beat you over the head with that crap so it can largely be ignored, plus the side quests are popping and undercover ganon starting a crack epidemic in the goron community while yunobo was in pimp larp mode was wild.

I need to know where the gloom hands spawn so I can avoid them. It's too scary for me. I still don't know if it's random or not because I've seen people say they get them in places I didn't. I'm guessing maybe it's because I've been avoiding the chasm quest.

i was scared shitless when i first encountered one on that rock formation with the floating island above it (the one that has a shrine on it) and now i'm terrified of encountering them in the depths. i already find the depths super suffocating to explore so adding gloom hands to it makes it the worst of both worlds.

It was awful in botw and age of calamity too so not a shock at all, but I am disappointed by Ganon since this is his first voice intro. Nintendo doesn’t really do a lot of audible dialogue in any of their exclusives so maybe it’s lack of experience in hiring good directors and VAs. Oh well

After beating the game I still prefer BotW over this I think. My main gripes are too many monsters and too much "spend 30 mins engineering this dumb flying cart to solve a puzzle" and not enough fun exploring. I kind of hated the zonai stuff ngl. Most of the new areas are very meh (the depths, the sky archipelagos, the caves). I wish the caves and the depths had more variety, and I wish there was just… more… stuff up in the sky in general. I also liked BotW's powers more, except for reversal which is fun af. Collecting bomb plants and having to attach to each arrow is such a drag over just having ready bombs imo.

No. 298696

File: 1685057098623.png (563.49 KB, 556x960, 4577.png)

I didn't take issue with Sidon being betrothed, and I think people were being ridiculous about it in their reactions. Like, duh, he's a monarch, he's got to have kids. Also Yona's design is really cute imo, I like the gold, pink, and green together. When I first came to Zora Domain, a saw her talking with the other characters and I was like, "She must be plot-relevant with a design like that." Like how the reporter Rito is a pelican, and King Dorephan is some kind of whale.

Something I noticed, and maybe this is just a language thing I personally don't understand, but I feel like the English translation of the text specifically made him call her "my love" eight gazillion times when it seems like he wasn't doing it as often in the actual voice acting? Like in scenes where he's talking to Yona, the Japanese VA would say one word (presumably Japanese for yes) but the subtitles would say something like "Anything for you, my love!" or something to that effect. I know Japanese has certain inflections or whatever, so maybe he was using a really affectionate inflection and that's how they chose to represent that, but it seemed to me like the localization was going really overboard with it. That with him constantly calling Link his best friend felt weirdly no-homo, when there was nothing suggestive of romance in the first game anyway? It was all just fanart and headcanons with little basis in anything concrete beyond "Link hot, Sidon hot." Did the localizers think it was necessary? Did Nintendo?

No. 298787

I just checked the part where she talks to Sidon and yeah the localization team definitely took huge liberties with it. Yona doesn't even call Sidon my love or anything either, she calls him Sidon-kun. Sidon speaks normally and doesn't use anything that would make them need to add all those "yona my beloved". When Link asks about her, Sidon even says they haven't talked much since they met again kek, and yet the translation makes it seem like they're super close and romantic with each other. She also introduces herself to Link as "your best friend's fiancee" but in japanese it's just "Sidon-kun's fiancee".
I didn't notice Sidon using anything particular with Link either. Going by the translation I thought he would be referring to him as his best friend, but no. He just says Link. Weird choices imo.

No. 298800

Personally I enjoy Sidon constantly referring to Link as his best friend. It just makes him seem completely obsessed with how close they are, it's cute. It is annoying they decided to change so much for the localization though, I hate when they take liberties like that.

Iirc he only refers to Yona as his love after her speech, right? I haven't finished all of the sidequests in Zora's domain though (I'm saving them for when I need another hit of Sidon). Either way knowing he doesn't originally refer to Yona that way is gonna make the sidlink shippers happy myself included kek

No. 298808

I thought she was really cute too tbh, albeit a little boring but that’s how a lot of the side chars tend to be. That’s interesting about the translations! I think people have totally overreacted to Lady Yona though in defense of their m/m ship and it’s been kind of annoying. Who cares? It’s not like they can’t still ship Sidon and Link. I like a HC I saw where Yona was intended to marry Mipha at first though and had to be with Sidon instead lol.

No. 298836

I think the story-telling kind of sucks with the memories. With natural exploring you're going to find them all out of order, even though the story is linear. So I figured out the gist of the story by the time I finished the first temple. Now having to sit through the other three temples listening to the other characters reactions to things while knowing exactly what is going on. Plus it's the same thing every time. Even plenty of the side quests revolve around the mystery of this thing which might not be a mystery to you right from the start of the game. I know it could have been prevented by doing them in order but I didn't think it would be that big of a deal, especially when the hint of the order to do them in was so small and missable. I like the game but it isn't that interesting to me any more and I don't have that much motivation to continue playing. Since the location of the memories wasn't relevant I feel like they could have just had them play in order, or locked memories behind story progression. Even having them more difficult to find than just spotting one from a sky tower and going straight there. Maybe having to solve a puzzle at a certain point of the story to find the appropriate memory, etc.

it worked better in botw, and I still didn't love it there. botw's plot suited the tone of the game well, whereas totk's plot is bad and awkward in this iteration of hyrule on top of being told out of order. nintendie's gameplay over plot mentality is going strong. they should've saved the ultrahand building gimmick for a new game, it deserved better. six years tuning it and that crazy physics engine just to waste it on a glorified botw expansion. I hope for the a future game they recycle it and that zelda and ganon fuck off, they're gay.

Plus like, there's always Sidon's sage-avatar-thing. Link basically has a personal magic clone of the guy.

No. 298856

This is a fair criticism, but BotW was so fantastic that I'm comfortable with having a sequel that's basically a glorified expansion. I was actually kind of sad when I ran out of stuff to do in the original game, because I enjoyed being in that world so much. This is pretty much exactly what I wanted personally, though I understand that on an artistic level it was a very lazy move for Nintendo.

No. 298879

I feel that kekkk my gripes with the game aside the botw expansion is still a better experience than anything else I've played in the past several years, esp after eldin ring undershot my already low expectations. it's making me want to replay the original too because I miss kass </3

No. 298951

Nonnies, I feel so conflicted. I was always such a huge Zelda fan, I fell off the radar a bit before Skyward sword came out, because I couldn't afford a new console, and hadn't played any new Zelda since then. Recently I finally picked up Botw, I completed it and I just hated it so incredibly much. The world felt so empty, the shrines had some cool puzzle ideas but fell flat to me because it was one puzzle per shrine instead of it building on the ideas, and what most disappointed me was the lack of tone/charm; I was expecting a devastated post-apocalyptic world. I remember the feeling of seeing Castle town after aging up. I wanted to feel despair and danger, Ganon as a looming threat. Instead I got empty NPC's who just wander around. I wanted closed off villages, wary of outsiders. Not open, welcoming Zora who throw out some "ew a Hylian" with no weight. But I see so many praise, 10/10's, people with some of my complaints but who always end with "but it is my favourite game ever". Am I not seeing something? Is there anyone who was just as disappointed as I am? Is Totk better suited for me?

No. 298962

BotW and TlK aren't like real Zelda games.

No. 299000

botw did feel very empty and a bit boring to me too. totk has a world that is fuller with more stuff to do, with more exploration based puzzles in the world in general. if you want complicated shrine puzzles you probably won't get what you're looking for in totk, but there is at least more things to do and more likeable npcs hanging around doing their own thing

No. 299001

Kek I was just saying this to someone the other day. Like yeah they have a lot of the same characters and races and place names, but botw and totk feel so completely removed from the rest of the franchise to me, even if they’re technically still Zelda games. It’s similar to how Elden Ring is clearly a Fromsoft game but also feels incredibly different from their past games on account of it being open world and drawing in so many new players (nothing wrong with that and not trying to gatekeep, I just feel similarly about this and botw/totk).

TotK was in development years before Genshin was released, that Genshin area came out one single year ago. The idea of Nintendo ripping off Genshin's design holds less water than an accusation of Genshin ripping off that one Sonic 06 level for their chasm design. Like you suggested I'd be less surprised to hear TotK features got leaked and they hastily slapped together something like what Nintendo were doing. Remember the entire TotK art book leaked to the public months ago, even the game itself leaked early; they're not running the tightest ship over there.

Ntayrt but it's zelda boomers' new reality I think

>"With Ocarina of Time, I think it's correct to say that it did kind of create a format for a number of titles in the franchise that came after it," said Aonuma. But in some ways, that was a little bit restricting for us. While we always aim to give the player freedoms of certain kinds, there were certain things that format didn't really afford in giving people freedom. Of course, the series continued to evolve after Ocarina of Time, but I think it's also fair to say now that we've arrived at Breath of the Wild and the new type of more open play and freedom that it affords. Yeah, I think it's correct to say that it has created a new kind of format for the series to proceed from."


No. 299140

That quote makes sense, I still think it's fair though if some people prefer the old format to the new. Yeah, there are probably nostalgia glasses on but the games still feel different from some of the "newer" Zelda games (pre-botw) too. I am a fan of both the new and older formats and OoT was my first game, but I get if people got used to how the games used to be. At least they're still putting quality in though I guess. Can't say the same for the new Pokemon games.

Idk I love the older zelda games and oot will always be in my top 5 games but nintendo cant just keep repeating the exact same format forever.

I'm >>298951 and I never said anything about wanting the same formula over and over, wanting Zelda to stay the same etc. I am fine with Botw's concept, I just think the execution is horrible. Nothing I said went against Aonuma's quote.

imo people would've liked BOTW more if they had those old school temples like ocarina of time/twilight princess; since I think for most people, those old school fantastical elemental type of temples just hit different. Doing those quickie puzzle shrines over and over kinda just got redundant. Maybe its just me but there's just something more satisfying and intriguing to work through a temple than those botw shrines lol Props to them for trying something new but I hope they go back to temples for the next game.

No. 299636

I need to make this!! I also saw that you can put a wheel, stabilizer, and control stick together to make a little unicycle kek

The beauty of totk is that you can play however you like. If you want to spend hours building a korok rotisserie you can, or you can just ignore building altogether. There are shrines you'll have to put a few things together for but it's nothing too complicated imo. A lot of puzzles in the world have the thing you need prebuilt for you too.

I'm really enjoying the freedom the game gives you to explore as you please. Sometimes one task starts to feel daunting after a while like exploring the chasms so it's nice to switch to another sidequest or area to explore, or just jump into the main quest. I just realized today that I already have 60 hours put in and there's still so much I want to do fuck

I started playing Breath of the Wild (I know I'm late to the game) and I'm honestly not enjoying the exploration. The world is just not intriguing. The colors are muddy(im playing on a switch lite idk if it looks different on a regular switch) and I hate cell-shadingI know everyone freaks out when they see non-cell-shaded graphics cuz of muh uncanny valley but there is something between hyperrealism and cell shading. Specially in BoTW where it looks like it's unrendered. I'm not even enjoying the puzzles. Like in other Zelda games it feels so satisfying to solve a puzzle but I don't get that feeling here. I haven't gotten too far into the game and haven't open up all the abilities so I hope if I play more it will win me over. I'm just disapointed after years of hearing how breath taking it is to explore the world in BoTW and then I play it and it just feels meh

No shit this is why when my Nigel, trying to be very nice and hint at buying me the new one, I had to keep saying not to I dont really want it right now…had to keep convincing him not to waste 70 dollars on something I have zero time to play right now. I still havent finished botw, pick it up occassionally and am like 75% done I think but…it just cant hold my interest like I wanted it to. My understanding is the new one is more crafting based. I hate to say it but it just seems….boring to me. I work with my hands and build things in real life… sitting in front of a tv virtually doing it is a hard sell for me. I want more brain bending puzzles and a variety of challenging enemies rather than 17 different ways to chop down a tree. Idk. I enjoy botw a lot but it also wasnt quite what I expected, dont want to waste my time on a new zelda I suspect I wont enjoy as much. I love the whole franchise and feel guilty for saying I don't really care about the new game..it just doesnt feel as zelda-y as i'd like?

No. 299919

Lately I've been playing Skyward Sword and Breath of the Wild and I've been loving both, but I think the ideal Zelda is somewhere in between. SS is a fine Zelda game but it's too linear and holds your hand too much. On the other hand BotW is too open and loses some of the classic Zelda feeling.

I love the way you can move around the world in BotW. For a long time I didn't even follow the story because it was so fun just to explore. Climbing up high and hang-gliding off into the distance never gets old for me. But I also think Link's movement abilities are too powerful. Even though the world in BotW is huge, in a weird way it can feel smaller than it should, since you can pretty much go from A to B in a straight line, climbing and flying over anything in your way. I guess you have limited stamina but it wasn't very long before I had enough food/potions that it wasn't an issue.

I think the problem is they gave you all of your abilities from the start. I would've preferred the traditional Zelda progression where you complete dungeons and gain new abilities which allow you to access more of the world. Like for example, maybe you could only climb trees and buildings at first, and then after a few dungeons you'd get the ability to climb cliff walls, and then later on you'd get the hang-glider. Overall I'm glad Nintendo shook things up but I hope they bring back dungeons and a bit more structure in future games.

After playing the game for a while now, I don't know if I agree. I like all the different monsters but yeah, I do hesitate when having to build a flying/moving whatever; however, I've noticed that they usually give you the materials you need right there and it isn't as difficult as it needs to be. I like the depths so far, and I really love the caves kek. I also wish there was more in the sky, like maybe an actual populated town. I like the powers in this game though more than the last game, but at least the last game had more variety.

Another thing I like is collecting the unique clothing for that guy. I'm pretty happy with the new game actually, but then again I haven't played many other Zelda games, only the DS ones and the GBA ones (because I only have a DS) and some Skyward Sword on Switch but I'm stuck because I forget how to get to that one part where you have to sneak around the desert area and avoid the monsters and I also keep only having one left and running out of time because I can't find it and it's made me not want to play it for a while…

No. 301045

If you follow one of the main storyline side quests, building becomes a lot easier. actual spoiler: follow josha's quest and find the temple of time in the depths and you get auto build for things you've built before and if you don't have the pieces it costs 3 zonaite for each piece I agree the caves add a lot to the game they're so fun to explore! I feel like between that and having actual temples with bosses that aren't just another blight ganon gives the game more of the old zelda feel (esp compared to botw), idk what other anons want from it tbh. if you want to play an old zelda game, then just do that.

The amount of clothing you can get is actually ridiculous it almost feels like a dress up game with all the options kek

This is a very boiler plate answer, but Ocarina of Time 3D. It's the classic everyone loves with a couple of QoL improvements. You should know that most Zelda games are very linear, though; unlike BotW, you have to do things in a particular order, and it can sometimes be cryptic.

Sorry I won't read that. I've probably done that quest though. I read 'josha's quest' and stopped, I don't even remember who that is.

Also I am really excited to collect all the clothes eeeeeee, I kind of want to look up all the outfits and where they are, but I probably shouldn't until I'm done the main storyline and am at a loss of where to find them. I'm almost done collecting the entire bubbul set or whatever, except I can't find that ugly little imp for the life of me.

Agree on Tulin.

No. 302490

Anon, her controls are so cancer and she moves like she's walking through molasses. If I want Yunobo to shoot something, I literally just walk up to him and press A. With Mineru, you have to have explosives pre-equipped or take some out to equip her with them, then you have to climb onto her, then you have to hold down the bumpers waiting for the canons to warm up. It's fine when you need to blow up large amounts of rocks at once, but if you just need to quickly blow up a small pile blocking a doorway, it's easier to just use Yunobo than it it's to go through all the steps with Mineru.

They're Zelda games, they feel like Zelda games, they play like Zelda games. BotW even suffers from the same problem literally every other Zelda game has suffered from, big ass world, nothing to do in it. I haven't played TotK so I don't know if it solves any problems, but I spoiled myself on the story and I like it even less then BotW. The hype that BotW's trailer had was epic and it's sad it didn't live up to expectations, for me anyways. Literally if you can come across a really important memory early in the game and have your last one be some mediocre one, it doesn't do well for storytelling. I think it's still a fun game though. I don't think any Zelda is a masterpiece, except maybe Majora's Mask but that's because there is nothing quite like it, but they're all good and comfy games and I like getting lost in them.

It cracks me up when people claim that BotW/TotK aren't "real" Zelda games because they're open world. Motherfucker, the first two Zelda games ever made were open world! The game shunting you down a rigid path using weapon/item unlocks was not originally part of Zelda, and I'm glad the newer games are moving away from that formula because it was getting really boring. It worked really well up through the Gamecube (particularly in Majora's Mask), but by Skyward Sword it felt really lame.

You could argue the same about certain aspects of TotK/BotW, though.

But nope, she disappears and we have to rescue her (again) even though we did this in the BOTW games(like why not change it up for the sequel?).

My gripe with it is there’s too much to do and not enough rewards for doing the most. Controls can be clunky and I forget the combat system all the time. Crushing rock walls suck and shouldn’t take 5 weapons to break through. Weapons breaking still sucks. Getting 1 shotted in “easy areas” sucks. The depths look and feel the same throughout and felt rushed. No I haven’t finished the game I quit from frustration. There are some nice moments like I appreciate Zelda’s story but I wish we had more of Zelda like you say. Her sacrifice was worth it but I think bringing her back makes me feel iffy they just wanted that ghibli reference lol.

I just finished ToTK and played most of BoTW around when it released. I really didn't care for either of them, favoring ToTK more than BoTW. I'm much more a fan of Minish Cap, Link to the Past/Link Between Worlds, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Story of Seasons, Phantom Hourglass, & Link's Awakening. I don't think the massive open world did them any favors. They need to keep it smaller and more curated like Wind Waker and Twilight Princess. I agree with all your criticisms.
For both games - I hate the weapon durability nonsense. In ToTK: I did not like how restrictive the building system is. I'm glad I turned on cheats at some point because the game was massively frustrating for me between the restrictions of the build system, the crafting, the stupid amount of gathering of materials they expected for upgrading your gear, the stamina system, etc. I have very little patience for grinding. I liked the creativity that you could have with the build system but that they tied it to your limited amount of inventory resources I felt was very silly. It hampered my desire to mess around with the build system because of how it was so easy to mess up and waste items/zonai devices, before I turned cheats on. It wasn't friendly towards making mistakes and experimenting. I can't believe there isn't a free build area and that you can only have, what, 8 favorite slots? They have a HUMONGOUS world but only 8 favorite slots for builds. Just lol. I did really like most of the abilities and the fusion system with weapons/shields, that was pretty fun to mess around with. The dungeons in both games fell really flat for me. I laughed out loud at the boss fight for the spirit shrine in particular because of how simple it was and easy to beat. I could not get myself invested in the plot, maybe I'm just too old now. The voice acting left much to be desired. The depths was a really neat idea but suffered from the overall game issues mentioned above.
You might like ToTK a bit more than BoTW like I did, but I think from what you said, you'll feel pretty let down overall. If they want to continue down this path, I hope they make some major improvements to the building system and encourage freely building. I want to see them discard with the weapon durability silliness entirely. The amount of grinding needs to go away too, I do not ever want grinding in Zelda of all places. They need to add the ability to make name the pins you set on the map. These two games are joining the list of ones I will never play again along with Skyward Sword.

They should have kept her as a dragon, especially since Mineru states you can never turn back, so it doesn't feel like a sacrifice. Also, I miss the champions. The sages don't feel like a family or team like the champions did, the sages just feel like random people who were put together. I wouldn't mind an Age of Calamity game for TOTK, it could really help flesh out the sages.

What do you nonnies want for the future of TLOZ? I really want a re-release of Windwaker and Twilight Princess for the switch. Haven't played both of those games in so long and I really want to play them again. For future new games, I want to explore somewhere different…maybe Termina. Or a Zelda game with like sci-fi like elements to it, would be cool.

I got totk for Christmas and I prefer it better to botw. both are still least favorite Zelda games but I hate all of the characters. Zelda is so annoying during these tear drop memories maybe just nostalgia but Zelda in oot tp and Wind Waker we're all such strong and cool Zeldas. She just seems too anime student council president character instead of OoT and Twilight Princess where she's a true wise monarch.

I recently beat OoT and quite enjoyed it, so now I started Majora's Mask but I'm finding it a bit hard to get into. Mostly I feel kinda aimless and like I don't know how to play it. I'm still very very early into the game though so I'll try to stick to it and see if it gets better.

I really don't like the idea of Sci-fi stuff in Zelda. Even the Ipad in BOTW was too much for me. I don't think they should return to Termina or any of the other one-game countries either. If they're going to have a non-Hyrule setting they should just make a new country.
Here's a tip to make the game easier: If you play the song of time backwards then time passes more slowly. This gives you more time to accomplish your goals before you have to warp back.
