The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

I'm a bit sceptical of the whole "victories are ours like they never could be with a traditional controller!" comments, obviously I've yet to play the game so I'll have to wait and see if it rings true. I understand they could just mean in the way we control Link and not the actual emotional response when we carry out actions, defeat bosses and the like, but playing Dark Souls lately and the feeling you get when you finally take down one of the bastard bosses is incredibly satisfying. Hell, finding a bloody bonfire in that game is satisfying.

Two more weeks! :omg:

I doubt anything In this game will be as challenging as Dark Souls, from what I hear about it. Demon's Souls was too hard for me, I never got off the first level. So I never experienced even a smidgeon of satisfaction, just 6 hours of horrible, chore-like frustration.

For those who do like Dark Souls I imagine Skyward Sword will still be satisfying in a different way, but bear little to no comparison.

Yeah, I'm not expecting, nor would I want, it to be as difficult as Dark Souls is at times. Like you say, should the motion controls be as good as advertised, I imagine that in itself should be satisfaction enough.

The challenge comes from working your way past the defences in a completely intuitive way... Each monster is effectively a puzzle in its own right.

Yeah, and I'm sure that'll be fun the first few times. My worry is that when you're going through the same motions for the 1067th time the novelty may be wearing a little thin. Again, we won't know until we're (finally!) playing this. :D

Which is what that guy in the game informer review says, you think it might - but it doesn't.

Now my excitement levels for this are increasing by the day, I can actual feel your excitement too Scott.

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME?!

:unsure:

Welcome to every day of my life... Such a wonderful place to be isn't it?

It's almost touching how Scottcr is now quoting from reviews as if it's fact, while if any review rates a Nintendo game lower than a 9, he throws a fit that all reviewers are killjoys and only want serious, brown games :wub:

I'd give Animal Crossing Wii a 2/10

You'll never understand the beauty and the pain of fanboyism. I weep for you.

Now you made me chuckle. Earn your keep the resident Nintendo fanboy and sell this game to me. My finger had hovered over the order button a few times. I thought TP was dull but am intriged by this. You'll get a neg if you mention any 10/10 scores.

He's entertaining.

Sometimes.

Watch that IGN clip above. Probably the best video I've seen but pretty much spoiler free.

If you doubt the combat, just look at the sword fight with the Moblins...

I hope they manage to nail the feeling of Link really doing what you want, so that even if you're not a waggle-happy person, you end up jumping up and down on the couch slicing left, right and center and then jumping forward on the saloon table plunging the sword down to deal the death blow. And breaking your hip.

You won't know, you'll be too busy hitting zombies with dildos

I lost faith in the waggle when I could just win a game of Wii tennis while slouching on the couch and making the tiniest flicks with my wrist. This promises genuine skill. That might convert me to the dark side.

And those dildo swipes will just be button presses...
