I have a family member who works for Nintendo and part of my graduation gift was that I got to visit NOA today. In Cafe Mario they had a bunch of screens set up so you could play the demos from E3. It was very busy. But since this section of the building is open to the public I don't think I can get in trouble for telling you guys about it. I might be repeating some things you already know.

The Motion Plus peripheral makes the controls a dream. I was watching one guy play it at first and he held the Wiimote in front of him like most of us tend to do, but it made Link run around with his sword held right in front of him too and it looked silly. So when I played I kept the Wiimote at my side when not using the sword. ;P Anyway, the sword really does do just about anything you want it to. Getting used to the movement of the blade was a little weird at first, but once I figured it out it was great. There are Deku Babas whose mouths open both vertically and horizontally so you have to swing the sword the proper direction to beat them. The Stalfos battle was great, again using the directional bit. It blocked at different angles so you had to swing with the right precision. The new dash function is really cool too, lets you practically leap up walls. The bow feels good with these controls, and this new item is some kind of remote control bug that lets you grab things from a distance. The graphics are brilliant too, very eye-catching. It plays well, it looks good, and all in all I can't wait for it to come out.
Is there anything they didn't how us you can do? Does the beetle travel far? Was that big bug thing a boss, or was it just thrown in somewhere?

Niiice? Yes no?
Well, that depends on wot you were going for. If you are trying to make it realistic, you must remember that the world is not covered in a sheet of blinding light so bright that you can only only see 20 meters away. But if you are just going for it to look cool, then yeah, I would say it does. But I am preferring the original, nothing personal

I think the last one with the Links holding their bows would be funnier if Wind Waker Link was before SS Link, and put in an animated gif with text. You have Link 1 facing straight, Link 2 facing straight, and Link 3 aiming up seeming ridiculous. Aw yisss...

Re: Skyward Sword General Discussion V.2

I think you'll learn new attacks throughout the game. Like...swing Vertically 3 times and then horizontally once after doing a backflip...to trigger a _________ attack.

Or something.

Again, I didn't get enough time to play with it, my uncle had a meeting to get to. I didn't get to see the big bug unfortunately, so I can't really tell you anything about it. The beetle went really far, it only stopped when I slammed it into something. Which happened a lot actually.

Re: Skyward Sword General Discussion V.2

The scorpion guy sure looks like a boss. Or at the least a mini boss imo.

Lucky you. It seems like we are going to be in for another great game then.

Just a few questions:

1. Was the demo in a sort of dungeon?

2. How did you control the bow and arrow?

Re: Skyward Sword General Discussion V.2

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere the scorpion was a miniboss. From what I can tell you just randomly encounter it in a cave. I hope SS has a lot of random minibosses that aren't important to the story or anything. Fighting the same one more than once would get redundant, though.

When has a miniboss ever been important to the story? D:

1. Well, it felt like a dungeon. At the very least it was near the entrance to one. The Stalfos battle and the area's nearby made me think it might be.

2.You set the bow in the menu. Then you ready the bow by holding down C. Pull back the nunchuck to draw the string, aim and release C to fire. It was pretty fun.

Re: Skyward Sword General Discussion V.2

Ghoma=Boss
Lame Scorpion=SRY KiDZ

Just look and you can see the difference in Boss to Miniboss.

The scorpion looks more like a mini boss than anything. Maybe there will be more than one mini boss now. I hope so :3

Re: Skyward Sword General Discussion V.2

I just saw the trailer, the graphics remind me of Super Smash Bros. Melee Link. His pants are kind of baggy, though. I love the design, because I loved Link's design in SSBM and it kind of reminds me of Wind Waker with the graphic change. And the scorpion might be a mini-boss because the door has bars in the background, and usually the door is large and the environment is a bit larger.

Re: Skyward Sword General Discussion V.2

SO now for a different question... What goofy shenanigans will you do with the freely controlled sword?

Re: Skyward Sword General Discussion V.2

^I already mentioned this, but the first thing is that I will only run with my hand behind by back and flailing wildly, so that Link has a propeller.

I will also make Link stab himself as much as possible.

And lastly, cut signs into 15 x as many pieces as previously possible
