    Ok, we need a new Skyward Sword Hype Thread. Lets try to not get this one locked/deleted.

    RULES:
    - Don't post (or imply) that you have it or are imminently getting it without proof.
    - Even if somebody does, don't be mean to them.
    - In general, be friendly.
    - Don't post smut (seriously).
    - If you find a torrent, post the filename and hash. I will try to keep a list on this post.
    - Put spoilers in spoiler tags (some of us don't want EVERYTHING spoiled before we play it).
    - Don't post links to any torrents or download sites, or even mention one by name.
    - Stay on topic.
    - Follow all of the GBAtemp rules (should go without saying).
    - Have fun.

    Torrent List:

    I can dig this.
    Thoughts on the art style?
    I think it's quite perfect. The only thing I'm not a huge fan of is the Enemy design. A little too cartoony for me. But otherwise great.

    I think the cartoony style is great. The art style in WW was one of my favorite things about it, and I love the more mature re-imagining of it that we see it SS. It is vaguely Okami meets WW meets TP. It's fantastic.
    I'm in general looking forward to the sword fighting. I have been waiting for 1-to-1 sword battles since the Wii was first announced, and now we are seeing that dream come true, in a Zelda game no less.

    GOTY?! A few months back I'd have said it was a distant second to Skyrim as my 'most eagerly awaited', but the closer we get/more info...vids...etc we see and it's now right up there with it! The biggest problem I have is these 2 'best game evers' are coming out a week apart... s'pose whichever gets my attention will probably end up being my game of the year.... Edge magazing rates this a 10/10? That'll do me just nicely - roll on the 18th (hopefully earlier - I've preordered! :D)

    honnestly i think the art style fits the system perfectly. From what i've seen the game looks beautifull in its own uniuqe way i am also looking forwar to the 1 to 1 sword fighting. My wii has been sitting untouched for months but its gonna get some serious usage once this game is released.

    Now there is an interesting question, who is more psyched for this than for Skyrim even though Skyrim is only like a week off?

    I'm more psyched for this than Skyrim =) I'm not really hyped about it at all, never really liked Oblivion and Morrowind, no idea why I would have thought they were my kinda thing but whatever =P

    I'm going to try and pin things to walls like in one of the early trailers, not sure why.... =P

    Pin things to the walls? What trailer was that?
    Speaking of trailers, has anybody else seen the new gameplay feeds by Digital Chumps? The flying one looked awesome.

    @Tagg7: One of the Nintendo guys (may have been Miyamoto san) said that it is 50-100 hours. I've heard though that if you were just playing straight through without doing side-quests it would be much closer to the 50.
    @Andrew_DS: Oh ya, I remember that. It's one of those subtle things that you just wouldn't expect from a Zelda game. In past Zelda games hearts are just sprite, not real 3D objects with any sort of interactions. Things like that and the whole bombs blowing up if you are on fire thing are going to add a lot of depth to the game.

    Edit:
    Also, YAY we made it through the first page without this topic being locked or deleted.

    Haha first milestone =D

    Between 50 and 100 hours of gameplay! Awesome =D

    And yeah, the extra interactivity makes the game better, it will go nicely with my new surround sound system =)

    Cool, do you have a Dolby Pro Logic II setup? I've always wondered how well that actually works since it uses two channels as the source.

    I have 2 legitimate questions.

    1. Will the game come with a wiimote (plus built in)?

    2. If it does not, where is the best place to buy one? (cheapest preferably)

    Does anyone else find it odd that this game is this hyped for a leak when there is absolutely no proof that anyone but reviewers have it? It is Zelda, yes, but still. Glad to see this thread may survive the release of the game or leak.
