Welcome to the official discussion thread for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on the Wii! To start, please add this game to your log, add it to your collection (if applicable), and (when you are ready) rate it using the link above!
This will be the official thread for general discussion on this game, but there may be other threads with more specific discussions. If there are any details about this game that you believe should be in this post, please contact a moderator and ask if they can add them.
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!
I'm likely going to have to play this with my kids around, so can someone please PM me if there is anything in the game a 7 year old and a 4 year old might find frightening? I'm going to be avoiding this thread until I'm finished with the game.
Dr. Fink, want to add a link to the Skyward Sword entry in the OP? Let's encourage users to add the game to their collection once they get their copy and click "Now Playing." I love the game database and hopefully more people start to use it.
I questioned that when I made this but then I figured Zero would prefer they aren't. Otherwise, what's the purpose of having an account here (besides also contributing). But since we have a lot of lurkers anyway, do we want to make it public so everyone can lurk it? What do you and Zero think?
It probably isn't, but I keep remembering how amazing I felt getting on Wind Waker's Ocean for the first time. It felt epic and if anyone has listened to Negative World Podcast Episode 20, then they know how much I love the epic-ness of Zelda. I wanna experience the song when I first reach the sky myself.
Very impressed so far, the controls work well and I kind of dont want to play another Zelda without them. The characters and game world are full of charm. Nintendo has done a bang up job with the story and cutscenes so far, everytime Zelda and Link share a scene its just really well done.
I kind of wish they didnt use motion control for the flight controls and that blurring technique they have used does work inside buildings as it does outside them.
