Hmm... I don't see anything too disturbing

 

Actually looking up those youtube vids has me hyped now :/

Well, I wouldn't call it disturbing, either, but it's definitely a far cry from looking natural and fluid. Which is somewhat odd, because all other animations I've seen look great.

On a side note, the lighting in the game's fantastic.

The reason there is no hype for the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has nothing to do with the game. It's because something at that E3 conference stole its thunder,That thing is the 3DS. There has been so much talk and games being revealed that titles like Skyword Sword has fallen to the wayside. Just this past week Level 5 revealed Phoenix Wright vs Professor Layton which hyped up gamers. However, the closer we get to a release date for Skyword Sword, gamers will get hyped.



If Nintendo is successful at the moment, it’s because they are good, and I cannot blame them for that. What we should do is try to be just as good.----Laurent Benadiba

I played it, Wii Sports controls detract from Zelda much much more than they add, it feels gimmicky especially in things like using the bow, Zelda TP pointer controls are much easier to use and smoother/more practical.  I can already tell this game wil be a rental only if anything for me and I used to be such a massive Zelda fan.

I remember when I looked at the trailer/show that the bow controls didn't look that good. But didn't they say that the IR pointer controls from TP are also going to be there? They just wanted to show the MotionPlus gameplay at E3.

I am extremely hyped. I've waited 4 years for this game.. BUT I do mostly agree with this article except for the negative point 5. The thrill will NEVER be gone.



i've waited the whole generation for this game, for the definitive wii zelda title! its like the GT5 of the wii. and it seems like this game will be the last great nintendo title on the wii.

 

can't wait (:



  The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is the best Zelda title ever made.

They weren't there on what I played.

I don't think I've been really interested in Zelda since the SNES era, its more nostalgia that kept me going all these years

I don't think hype died, I just think people were expecting an info blowout at E3 which they didn't get.  But obviously the Zelda faithful, such as myself, have still been drooling over just the name since E3 haha.
