The lowest scoring review is out: http://au.gamespot.com/the-legend-of-zelda-skyward-sword?section=&subsec=title

Thoughts? Seems like the reviewer mostly feels there's nothing new and fresh enough for the series. 7.5 does seem like a bit of a cry for attention but, as I haven't played it yet myself, I'll reserve my judgement.

I always like the bad reviews, gives another perspective.

Anyone else get sick of "repetitive" criticisms for games?  Which games isn't really (obviously, some more than others)?  By that standard, shouldn't all racing games be rated like shit since all you do is race?

Nintendo do some experiments with Zelda on handhelds but nobody gives a fuck, not nowadays anyway. And well, I think is time to post this thing...

lul, yup.

I'm curious if Tina will address this at all.  Anyways, lots of people are pissed, hopefully NBC will do something to UN-piss people off.  Anyways, isn't it 30 Rock's last season anyways?

Saw the first two seasons of "Community" and I love it. :P



Meanwhile:  The show has been put on an Indefinite Hiatus (whatever that means).
Google it (too lazy to put link).

I prefer monk/rogue characters.  The kinda under-the-belt and lockpicking types.  I like going cleric too because I charge people for their good health. :D

You should put it on a pepperoni pizza as a gag.

Aw man.  You got me questioning what nipples taste like.  I imagine it being like pepperoni... but like a pepperoni candy (ie; bad).

I have 3, take one of mine.

Thank you.  I will adore it until I can trade it in for my Black and Gold Zelda 3DS.

TP was very rigidly linear, even the trade quest is not only required but must be done at a specific point, not sooner or later. It's not like I want wildly free roaming or it to be completely open, but in OoT you could, say, choose to get the hookshot immediately, or go to get Epona, or even poke around at all the changed/new places THEN address what had to be done. TP, if it wasn't completely optional it had to be done when they wanted you to do it, and that kills some of the fun of exploring since you really don't have any practical choice BUT to go where they tell you. I'm not expecting Skyward Sword to fix that, especially after some I've heard, but it should still be a lot of fun and be one of the only games to REALLY take advantage of the Wii Remote in a way that neither a standard controller or KB/M couldn't address just as well.

OoT had to have had the most *boring* overworld in the entire series.  Majora's Mask at least gave you a moon and tripped-out inhabitants.
You say "explore", I ask "what?".  Zora's Domain get's frozen for the greater half and doesn't "unfreeze", the bitches in the desert won't let you in for a long time, Kakariko has got to have the creepiest inhabitants and foundation for a town to ever set on, Lake Hylia is a hole with some water in it (Shadow of the Colossus at least let you see a turtle in their lakes), Lon Lon is troubled by family disputes, and Hyrule field is surrounded by bear-sized-man-eating Plants.

The lack of exploration in TP is remedied by the third dungeon where the world is opened up to you and you get your horse as early as the second dungeon.  It was more linear, but really not *that* much more than OoT really was.  Besides, not like you could do much in OoT without the Longshot anyhow. 

On a final cheese.... what the FUCK was Nintendo thinking with Ocarina of Time's Great Fairy's??  They're a cross between that creepy North American take on fairy culture and a hooker you can't take you're eyes off because she's so ugly.

I'd wait until next year at least on Last Story, and I always felt Pandora's Tower was likely an average or slightly above average game that happened to get caught up with those two because of an odd premise, release timing, and people just fucking tired of NoA skipping more and more stuff each year.

And Prime Mover's post... I really can't agree with TP, but those are entirely different priorities from mine. Not that I think Skyward Sword will exactly satisfy what I want either though, Dark Souls will probably be the closest of any recent game.

Yeah, I heard average things for Pandora's (like a cheap Wii Shadow of the Colossus with a grappling hook).  Last Story seems a bit a shame, and from what everyone keeps yapping on, Xeno would be sorely missed.  I am holding out a bit longer, hopefully we'll get some news (hell, the translation's been done for them).  I hate looking at the Wii sections where 9/10 games are for kids.  No wonder everyone sold the goddamn thing, and I hope Wii takes this seriously for the Wii-U.

To add to TP's discussion, I'm surprised OoT and TP can even be compared to some extent... I don't know what TP *didn't* do better.  I mean, it's not a matter of superiority, per se, I still play LttP after all.  I guess I'm thinking just technically wise.

Wow, did NoA really turn down ALL of those titles (the XB, LS, and PT combo)??  Wtf...

You were already getting into battles a ton to begin with, so grinding was never necessary.

There were a few... either way, I could never max out the... karma grid or whatever it was called unless I did (to get new spells).  That one guy who ate his buds was a pain in my ass.
