Finally preordered it. I have stopped posting new information about the game because it seems like Nintendo is revealing way too much information. I don't want to spoil the game for myself.

Agreed. A dark Zelda game was just what we need in the series
Majoras Mask is actually rather darker then Twilight Princess. Not in graphics or looks but in the nature of the game. But yeah, Twilight Princess is truly one of the best Zelda games. I can't wait for Skyward Sword. Finaly we will have a game that will knock Ocarina of Time down from it's throne!

I agree on that one Majora's Mask IS darker when it comes to the story, i actually meant it in a graphical way which gives the game an adult theme. Twillight Princess was pretty damn awesome, my second favorite Zelda game!

I remember reading an article about an anthropomorphic Master Sword appearing in the next game a while ago. But for now, I could imagine Link touching Fi's legs.

Yeaaahhh, I'm super fucking amped for this game. I don't like knowing all that much about any LoZ game before I play it, so I never read this thread. It'd just ruin it, man.

My favorite thing about the game so far is definetly the preview of Skyloft. It looks like it has an extremely massive size and there appears to be loads of things to do within the city before you move on. Looks like a very peaceful game I won't let the soundtrack out of my mind.

You had probably not recognize the image I sent you of someone's theory of Link touching Fi's legs, and rips him open.

Back on topic, did they just watched Avatar?

The official site has launched.

It has a nice little map of the overworld. Looks really big.

I hope they put that awesome picture of Link riding his bird throught the sky. It would make an amazing desktop.

So I played the demo version of the gmae at my local EB games (the Canadian name for Gamestop).

My thoughts:

I was given three choices, a bird flying level, a boos battle, or a dungeon level, specifically the Sky Temple.

I went with the dungeon becasue I thought I'd get the most gameplay variety.

Graphics: Assuming the real game will look like the demo, the game looks great. Obviously not as good as HD, but the game looks much better than Twilight Princess, and the cartoony graphics look nice.

Gameplay: I expected very accurate motion controls from some of the reviews I've been reading, but the sword controls were a bit off to me.

They worked well, but sometimes I felt as if I did an upward slash, when Link did a downward slash. Other than a few odd slashes, the controls are pretty nice.

I had access to the beetle item, sort of like a little camera to scope out new areas and get ruppes and crates etc.. The controls were fine.

The slingshot works by pointing at the screen and pressing a button. Just like TP.

I didn't get enoguh time to try thr bombs this time, but apparently you can now pull a bomb out and choose when you want it to start counting down. A nice touch alongside the options to either lob or roll the bombs.

The bow works nice, you get more accuracy and power than the slingshot, and pulling bakc the nunchuck adds power to your shot.

You have two invintory wheels that don't pause the game, so it's pretty streamlined. One for all your shields (you can have more than one when their meter runs out) and your potions, and another wheel for your main items.

You can point upwards with the sword to get a charged blast that you can release.

Fi is your new Navi/Midna replacement, but more boring and hand-holdy.

Overall: The game looks and plays well, and the enemies I encountered couldn't be brought down by random slashing, so atleast the combat won't be my least favourite part about Zelda games now. Only 9 days left to wait.

I'm so freaking excited about this. Are their demos in stores in the states? We used to have EB everywhere but of course GameStop bought them out... I wonder if there are playable demos anywhere I'd love to try it out.

I got a hold of a leaked copy. Great game. Not the best Zelda ever (I believe that distinction belongs to Wind Waker, but I'm sure people will argue with me on that) but definitely better than Twilight Princess.
The first hour or so is spent wondering if you're retarded because the sword doesn't work the way you want it to. You'll figure it out.

Yeah, I felt like that when I tried the demo version. Hopefully you tell the truth when the sword gets more accurate.

You've got to be kidding me. I went from being possibly one of the first on the planet to play this game to being one of the last to get a good glimpse at a copy of the game.

We still have EB in Australia. Y U NO BUY EB IN OZ, GAMESTOP?

Anyway, on November 24, Australia is going to get that game! Finally, after you finish this game we just begin to play it.

By the way, I noticed that the forums on another site said that there is Beedle's Shop and Pumpkin Landing on Sky Island. Can you confirm it?

Beedle's shop is a small house that floats around the bazaar in the middle of sky island. You shoot the bell hanging off the house with your slingshot, and he'll let down a rope that allows you to climb inside. It's where you go to get a variety of helpful (and holy moly expensive) upgrades.

Pumpkin Landing is one of the islands that floats around sky island, it's a big inn/bar the shape of a pumpkin. If you break the chandelier inside, you get to do side quests

Is Skyloft really that big? I heard it's quite a tremendous size with loads to see and do with magnificent scenery.

at first you're like how the fuck am I going to remember where everything is, then when you complete the first temple, it actually starts to feel pretty small. It's the way with a lot of games I suppose.

I recived the game earlier today and I have been playing non-stop! This game is amazing!!! <3 I just beated the 1st temple and now I am doing some side-quest.

The Skyloft isn't to big and it is pretty easy to navigate, but the Sky in general is pretty huge!
