Anticipating Skyward Sword?

Has anyone pre-ordered The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword?


I'm seriously excited about this game. It looks so good!

The scene with Link riding the fire boulder reminds me of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Link in the mine cart sends me to Temple of Doom.

Flaming Balls remind you of Raiders?

Dirt digging miners?

With the picture kicking off the thread...not so much.

So NO Indiana Jones?

Gotta love the Raven. No bad thread is allowed to die, without superflous and "last word" comments from all the members.

I dunno about that, the Super Mario Galaxy games are pretty tight.

Guys please don't crap up the thread. Let's act like adults. If you don't like Nintendo Wii then don't post. If you have something of positive substance to say then say it.

I watched a bit of the video to see the Flaming Balls. Within the first 10 seconds it says:

"May Contain Content Inappropriate For Children"....Huh? Children are its target market. Yes? No?

I stopped watching after about 25 seconds. What is the "inappropriate" content? The Flaming Balls?

While I do enjoy The Legend of Zelda games (I won't be getting Skyward Sword due to the lack of having a Wii), I just wanna give you some advice RC. Try to refrain yourself from starting threads that will never meet the interests of Raven members. Most folks here aren't into games like Zelda. You can't fault them if they dislike threads like this one.

Goodness gracious.
"The Man" fares a little better, about twenty five of one hundred and twenty eight...but once again many of the twenty five are marginally Indy related.

Wonder what mine are?

I see. Must be some sort of Avatar Chase: Who can get to 5k posts...with the most instances of "at least I brought up Indy" agenda...

We will be looking into this more directly now…

Because I expect more from your posts, I can't even begin to guess what you mean. Maybe you could make it more plain...what chase?

What exactly will you be looking into?
