    I was into the steel case until I saw the pricetag. :lol 


    I have the bundle pre-ordered since I don't have a Wiimotion+ I can't wait to pick it up. Corbs on Nintendolife posted a picture of his and it looks so beautiful.


    I'm really looking forward to the combat, the difficulty and the presentation. I'm only concerned about the Lyre since it apprently requires a sense of rhythm and I don't have that. It's the main reason I can't finish Spirit Tracks.

    Just preordered it. Not that I wasn't convinced before but the latest trailer did it for me.

    The link you got is the link of the promo item. They always have crazy price and notes saying not for sale. It's just to show what the item is I guess. You need to go to the actual game link, where you'll see that pre-ordering it will get you a steel case.

    I pre-ordered the bundle with wiimore+ yesterday finally, good thing to cause I had the tab open for a while, noticed there was 5 left, placed my order, down to 3, and today it's sold out! I got it just in time :D 

    Now I think I'll order the regular one for the steel case :redface2: 

    Edit; And ordered, re-:redface2:

    Nevermind. :( 

    Too bad Gamestop doesn't have some sort of exclusive. Even a poster would be nice.

    I agree, Gamestop really dropped the ball on this one. Although, somebody accidentally put down money on a game I preordered there (I guess they gave them the wrong phone number when giving info?) so I used the spare cash leftover to order a 24x36 inch silk Skyward Sword poster off eBay. This game cannot come soon enough.

    You're so lucky. If you remember please tell me what the costumes are like. I'm very curious about that. Getting the game early is also cool. I can't help but wish I lived in Toronto right now. :lol

    So it looks like a demo got leaked online, interesting.
    Not the only leak, though. It seems that the entire plot of the game was revealed. Guess I'll be avoiding all Zelda threads.

    Well, it took a while but I finally decided.
    I was struggling because this month I really only have the time and money for one game so I was torn 4 ways on account of Batman Arkham City, Kirby's Return to Dreamland, Super Mario 3D Land and of course, Skyward Sword.
    I narrowed it down to Batman or Zelda and finally picked Zelda. I'm gonna ask for Arkham City for Christmas.

    I'm very excited for this game and it figures it's the last one of the 4 candidates to be released.

    I never understood the fashination ppl have that want everything leaked both when it comes to movies and games, Dont they want to be surprised and find out for themself. Or is it some sort of "hey look at me I know how the whole game is without playing" attention satisfaction.

    I am really looking froward to it but since you nmever can tell what ppl post in this thread I am now not entering this thread, untill I have finished the game.

    I think it's all the same people that love to be the first to reply to a forum thread with a "First!".

    I call them Firsties.

    I'm following your mentality to its fullest sir. I dont want any spoilers for me for this game. Not like I did with Twilight Princess I was really dissapointed cause I knew alot of the story early. That will not be true with this game :D

    I'm surprised the game is getting so many great reviews! I don't think it deserves a perfect score, though. Personally, I feel the game is going to be a little sparse as far as variety goes. Only 3 main areas? come on. The lake is just a lake, not a full water realm, and revisiting areas, even though it's purposeful, could get old. However, the focus on story and controls definitely outweighs that. Still unsure on what EXACTLY the silent realm is, but based on gameplay I'm not liking it so far. "Spiritual challenge" my butt. Nintendo just got lazy and recycled the tears of light and shoehorned it into the story. I personally think Skyward Sword deserves a 9/10. Just my thoughts.

    Forced stealth sections are the worst part of games next to escort missions and fetch quests. I still don't know why Nintendo still does them despite people complaining that they were the worst part in every Zelda game since OOT.

    Complaining and giving a game rating... to a game you haven't played...

    Your logic confuses me.
