    What Does Everyone See in This Skyward Sword?

    Obvious spoilers in here, not going through the hassle of hiding every single one separately, so be warned. Gameplay and controls: I think they did a good job with the motion controls overall. Never had any of the problems other people complained, only when I hectically flailed the Wiimote...

    What's Your Earliest Memory?

    For me it was in late 1988 or early 89 (1 1/2 years old). I can remember standing under the huge door frame to my room and my mom praised me for staying clean that day :D

    Spoiler Evidence of a Skyward Sword Prequel??

    I really hope there won't be yet another prequel because it's already ridiculous now, no need to make it even more ridiculous. I mean, with SS we have a prequel of a prequel (TMC) of a prequel (OoT) of a prequel (aLttP) of the original game (LoZ), and I'm only talking about games that were...

    Your Opinion on Youtube's New Channel Design

    Oh, are they changing it again? Honestly I found the design that they had around 2008 the best. I generally don't like the web trend in the last couple years that everything has to look more streamlined, simplified, Java-scripted and so on (I like to call it "Apple-isation"). Things weren't...

    Your Lightning Round First Battle

    Honestly I didn't even care much about the boss rush until I was in hero Mode. There, I usually pick Demise first because it's always a really fun battle!

    Do You Think Skyward Sword Lived Up to the Hype, the Reviews, and Your Expectations?

    I didn't have any sky-high expectations to start with. TBH as soon as I saw the E3 2010 demo I thought "Great, another Zelda game aimed at 10-year-olds" but yet the game turned out pretty well and didn't disappoint! Sure, there were some things that could've been handled a bit better (Fi's...

    How Long?

    ~35 hours on my first run, getting around 75% of the sidequests/heart pieces/gratitude crystals done. That first run was started on a Monday and finished Saturday in the same week. On Hero Mode I beat it in around 30 hours, missing just 2 heart pieces (one from that cart game IIRC).

    6 Heart Run

    So far I've played through regular mode and Hero mode of the game, but without limitations. Now I've just started my third run (on regular mode) as a minimalist run. This means no heart containers, no shields, no potions, only one bottle because you need it and no upgrades. I'm at the start of...

    What Was Your First Video Game?

    I have some vague memories of playing Pong when I was 3-4 or so, it was on a sort of console that got hooked up to the TV but I don't remember which one it was or even how it looked like. But this was my parent's, the first one I really owned was Tetris for the original Gameboy, got it for...

    Favorite Mario Platformer

    Yoshi's Island. Got it shortly after release in 1995 and it was sooo addicting! Brilliant graphics and level design and quite challenging to 100% which gave it a lot of replay value. And an amazing soundtrack as well, definitely one of Kondo's best scores.

    Who else Agrees That Shooters Suck?

    I don't say that they suck either, they're rather "meh" for me. The only shooter I sometimes play is good old Counter Strike with some friends over LAN (in one room), which is a lot of fun, especially when there are many people on a small map! Lots of laughing, screaming, raging and swearing...

    Next Console Gen.

    I'll only get myself the WiiU if any, because Nintendo has the only exclusives I care for, plus the WiiU will most likely have better third party support than the Wii had. Another thing is pricing: How I know all these companies, the WiiU will propably go for ~€300, which is still affordable...

    Opinions on Voice Acting

    Oh, the never-ending argument ;) I don't remember having stated my opinion in a dedicated thread like this one, but here it goes: I'm 100% for voice acting for other characters and I'm fine either way if Link stays mute or has a voice. Most of the arguments against voice acting for other...

    Hardest Mario Kart

    I'll have to go with SMK too, but then again I've only played that, SMK64 and some of DD. Still I thought that the Donut Plains(?) level from the Special Cup in 150 was a nightmare! But then again I probably suck at the game. I never got under 1 minute in the very first course (150) but a friend...
