Not being able to pet the dogs is the only flaw in Zelda: Breathe of the Wild. At least you can still play with them and feed them.


can you pet the dog in Kentucky Route Zero?

I think you can pet “Blue” but I don’t trust my recollection

As noted in the latest tweet, you cannot pet the dog in Shadow of The Collossus.

Enter the Gungeon has been out for many years and only recently added this power. I credit Twitter.


Yes, I came to post this. I have spent too long on Enter the Gungeon, but I will have to reenter with this update.

You don’t see the missing fishing rod as flaw? I mean bomb fishing works, sure, but it’s not exactly the relaxing way of doing it…

Watchdogs 2 you can pet the dogs. I did that often.

Ah, ok. I must have last looked at the account on the 2nd, where it didn’t register with me that they were all April 1st posts.
That’s all right, then.
