I haven't played Horizon, so I can't exactly compare the two. However I think you'll like BotW. At first it doesn't feel like a Zelda game, but once you get the hang of things it'll feel more and more like Zelda.
Well I'm fairly new around here, so I don't have any old GB posts to share but here's where I was right and wrong on a few things.
I was right about Splatoon. It instantly was on my watchlist the moment I saw the E3 2014 trailer. Then the first Global Testfire pretty much validated all my expectations.
I was wrong about the Uncharted series. I was one of those Naughty Dog fans who loved Crash and Jak but despised Uncharted, to me it just wasn't as good as its predecessors. I liked the platforming gameplay and the cartoony look of those game and Uncharted just looked like a generic "AAA" game that was all brown and grey. Though I reversed my stance on the series when I played Uncharted 1,2&3 last year.
@bongchilla Actually it hasn't been officially confirmed yet, it's just a rumor from several of Eurogamer's sources. I know most people trust Eurogramer because of the Switch leaks months before its reveal, but I'd still take it with a grain of salt.
Oh great of all the days to disable getting Wii Points and they choose my birthday.
Well before time runs out, here's some more good WiiWare games to check out:
- 1000 Wii Points
It's essentially the precursor to Shin'en's Fast Racing Neo (Wii U) and Fast Racing RMX (Switch). Much like its predecessors, Fast Racing League mixes F-Zero, Wipeout and Ikaruga into one fantastic racing game.
- 800 Wii Points
A Horror/Puzzle game from WayForward. Lit is, to my knowledge, the only actual horror WiiWare title. You have to navigate dark, paranormal creature infested rooms with light via breaking windows with your slingshot or turning on TVs and computers though you have to be careful not to have too many on or you'll break a fuse and be dragged into the dark.
Now this is also available on mobile but it just doesn't have the moody and dark atmosphere of the original.
- 1000 Wii Points
After ExciteTrucks and ExciteBots, Nintendo decided the series should go back to it's roots with ExciteBike: World Rally. It borrows heavily from the NES classic though it adds some features from Trucks and Bots.
