    So far i am totally loving the new Zelda, i feel as though it has so many fresh new things that we may realize a bunch of them later when playing lesser games who are lacking it. But what has caught my attention after i reached the first temple is that it hasn't become night in Faron Woods, though it looked as if it was late in the afternoon. What is the deal with that? Did they trash the natural flow of time that i loved so much?

    Yeah, you sleep in a bed for 12 or 24 hours to switch the time. I don't like it.

    I agree.
    To make matters worse - you cant leave skyloft at night......
    Also theres no dawn/dusk. And Ive always been a fan of those times (I find them beautiful lol)

    Eh, I think they took out the natural flow of time to allow for more streamlined gameplay in a sense. You control when you want it to be day or night, so certain tasks only available during specific times aren't overlooked or missed out, and require more waiting times.

    Sun's Song. Nuff said :)
    That doesnt mean they had to remove the day/night cycle all together.

    I think it is a missed change cause i would have loved walking through Faron Woods.

    @ Other topics, sorry but it seemed off topic.

    Me too, nothing like hearing the trumpet at a fresh new dawn. I am really disappointed that they removed it, especially since you spend so much time outside dungeons.
    If they had let me review the game it would have cost a point at least cause a natural flow of time belongs to Zelda like green to Link.
