I bought the recently released Zelda bundle and I've played the game for maybe an hour or so. To put it in perspective I completed the first dungeon and I was able to buy up a ton of gear from the rabbit dude who is 'renting' my house. My main issue with the game is that it's doing a really poor job of explaining what's going on to me.
I'll give an example. I'm supposed to cross a river to get to the next dungeon (I believe it's the tower of hera but it could be the other one). There was a dude close to the tower that told me I should learn to swim from the master swim dude up north. I went there and found his assistant who told me a bridge was broken and now we're both screwed because he can't swim either. I honestly don't know what to do now. I've went around the map trying to find things to do (I found power gloves, which seem useful) but I feel like I'm wandering around. I have a bunch of items that I don't really know how they work or when they are useful.
I keep getting the feeling that the game expects a certain level of back knowledge from me that I just don't have because I'm new to the Zelda series. I'm fighting the urge to just look up a guide because that seems shitty but if the game continues like this I'm going to have to.
I know this series is beloved so I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt. What am I doing wrong here and what can do to start enjoying this game?
