Alrighty everyone, the game is finally out in all primary regions.... IDreamofHime was the first to receive their copy here on the boards. This is the place to discuss it!!!

Welcome to the thread on Negative World where all wondrous Zelda talk can occur. I would recommend that if you wanna talk about deeper-game stuff as we get going, perhaps spoiler-tag it and then describe outside of spoilers where in the game it is. The recent Super Mario 3D Land Discussion Thread is a good example. That'll allow people who aren't too far to read the thread without actually spoiling stuff for them. Just try to be courteous but definitely have fun with the game and discussions!!

Have ye what it takes?

Be sure to hit up the Skyward Sword Game Page and add the game to your collection once you've received yours. Be sure to mark it as "Playing" while you work on it and after you're played it sufficiently, give it a score you deem fitting!

If you've beaten the game, click on over to roykoopa64's Skyward Sword story/ ending discussion (SPOILERS), and general thoughts thread! It's like this thread part deux!!

The game had a few iffy moments, but overall, I loved it. There's one glaring flaw with it, however, and was a big let-down. Before the final battle with Demise, he says he'll wait a little for you. So I took that chance to go get some potions and head back. As far as time-continuity goes, apparently going in the future makes him wait to death. The 'future' is perfectly fine with Demise left free to do whatever. That sorta makes that battle drop a tiny level. Also, I didn't win the first time (or second...), and it restarts you without any of your previous potions--regardless of if you saved right there or not. This makes you have to either travel through time in a manor which shouldn't be possible story-wise, or reset the game to restart right there with your inventory in-tact. This is a pretty big blunder to me, but at least that last sequence was pretty cool regardless.

Yeah, that's where the game really picked up for me too. You're about to enter my favorite area of the game too. Good luck!

Finally got the game this weekend and played up to the point where Link finds the titular sword. I know I've barely scratched the surface of the game.

I'm concurrently trying to beat the original Zelda. (I've got all 8 pieces of the Tri-Force and am in the final dungeon.)

I also just scored Wind Waker on Ebay and look forward to giving that a go for the first time when it arrives.

How much Zelda can one man take!?!?!?

More Zelda. MOAR.

Do you have a 3DS? Go get Link's Awakening. If you're an early adopter, Zelda II and The Minish cap await you as well.

What about some of the others? If you're going back to earlier Zelda's did you play OoT? Majora's Mask? A Link to the Past?

Wii Virtual console is your friend.

I've been going back and forth trying to decide whether to download LoZ II: Adventures of Link or completing the second quest in the original. I think I'm going to complete the second quest in order to give Nintendo more chances to make LoZ II one of their awards points downloads in the next couple of months. (That's how I got Majora's Mask.) I plan to eventually play them all.

I have to say that in the original Zelda, the gradual transformation of Link from a three-heart wimp who can barely make it beyond a couple screens to the mighty arse-kicker he is by the time you get to the last dungeon is one of the funnest experiences I've ever had in video games. I can't believe I'm only now playing it.

On Skyward Sword, I've just entered the Sealed Temple. That's not very far beyond my last save, but I spent a ton of time exploring the town and goofing around with the jets of air and sailcloth.

Did anyone know there is more than one cat in Skyloft?
Posted: 04/05/12, 00:14:10

There's only one....it just moves rather fast. You will never see two cats on screen at the same time.
Posted: 04/05/12, 00:17:36

My son had two following him this afternoon. I saw it with my own eyes. Everything I have found online says there's only one, but I don't have an explanation for it other than he found a glitch.
Posted: 04/05/12, 01:18:39

Pics or didn't happen.
Posted: 04/06/12, 04:17:52
Pretty sure I've seen more than 1. Not sure if this is supposed to be rare. I totally remember seeing 2 attack me at night by the water crossing the bridge to the graveyard.
Posted: 04/07/12, 01:18:01

At the same time? I mean, they were on the screen together? And this happened during the day.

Finally finished this over the weekend - loved it.

Demise gave me a lot of problems because I hadn't been using the shield repel technique or consulting Fi about monsters, so I didn't know I was supposed to use the skyward strike. Found him tough - a great 1-1 sword battle to finish the game. Lovely ending too to wrap up the game and round out the Zelda mythology. Some truly touching moments too. I'm not sure why, but when Fi finally expressed emotion/gratitude I was quite affected.

A 10/10 game for me, and sits along side the Galaxy games as the best on the system. A great combination of radically new and old, with a great story and brilliant design. For such a large adventure, there were very few low points for me (if any).

Just like OOT and Galaxy, it deserves a sequel that takes the games advancements and expands on them.

Sidenote: The implication that the inhabitants of Skyloft (after generations of inbreeding) then decided to breed with their Loftwings and eventually evolve into the Oocca from TP was also disturbing.

yeah bro, If you go there at night, you can attack one and itll runaway, if you do it in the right direction, you definately get two at once. and bro? It's not a cat. cats can't fly with theyre ears. lol
Ill upload proof Pics tonight.
I was really into this games and destroyed it in a few days and then suddenly stopped, I still am in sky keep. I just havent picked the controller back up in a few months.

2 things:

1. How in hell did you get through the game without using the shield bash?! Surely you didn't just not use it against Demise/Spend a lot of money on repairing shields...

2. Implication of inbreeding?. Really?!. Where did you get that from? Truly a disturbing theory.

@Shadowlink I agree it was good in concept and theme, however I found it to be too easy, even though the method took me a bit to figure out at first. Once I knew how it works, it was cake. After it was over, I was honestly sitting there with a blank expression, and I may have even said "Is that it?" aloud, expecting another form to pop out.

That's kind of a problem I had with all enemies in the game, they're mostly a puzzle. When I played through Hero Mode, it was still easy, because I already knew how to defeat everything and double damage didn't matter because I seldom got hit. Still a great game though, and I don't mind it being on the easy side, but I may not find it as replayable as some of the others in the series.

1. Strangely my shield never once needed repairing, but it was the first thing I looked to upgrade. Looking back on it, I clearly should have used the shield repel/bash more.

2. It's my own pet theory. The gene pool available on Skyloft will inevitably lead to problems, especially if people move to the surface like Zelda.

@achhibbar - But if we take all of the evidence present in SS, then we see that its story suggests that it takes place MUCH later than the origin of the Oocca (despite what Hyrule Historia may say), i.e., some time after The Wind Waker, A Link to the Past, or Adventure of Link rather than before Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess.

.......the story line of zelda is all but blurred and gone now.
