    There has been a number of discussion threads regarding the game but they're all about different parts. I decided to make this thread to consolidate all the discussion. Yeah, it's pretty lackluster for an OT right now but I'll spruce it up later. Also don't discuss on how to get the game working on your Wii, that's for the release thread.



    Release Date
    :

    North America - November 20, 2011
    Europe - November 18, 2011
    Switzerland - November 11, 2011
    Japan - November 23, 2011
    Australia - November 24, 2011
    South Korea - November 24, 2011

    Are you trying to troll? Those are screenshots from the demo, not the game.

    They're from the first dungeon, so no...

    EDIT: Well, technically they are from the demo. Hylian shield.

    The Skyward Sword demo?
    If you got better screenshots, show me them. Otherwise, quit your bitching and shut up.

    I actually don't see the problem, why he may not use the screenshots from the demo?
    Anyway, if you want some other screenies, you can find them here: http://www.jeuxvideo...-sword-p126.htm

    Yeah seriously Fishaman, so the demo is not Skyward Sword? lol k.

    OT:
    I've been playing this game for the past 6 hours and I'm loving it, but has anyone else noticed how the resolution seems even lower than the usual 480p? Maybe it's just me, but this game looks exceptionally... pixelly.
    Oh and has anyone else noticed how there seem to be strange 'artifacts' on the screen in certain places? Like when flying for instance, there are these strange lines running through the clouds (they're vague, but noticeable, they remind me of a low quality JPEG)

    I want to know how to get this game working on WiiFlow :/ (Yes, i downloaded it, but I will buy it! Just trying to get used to WiiMotion+)

    I have NEVER used a WiiMotion+ on my Wii or played a game with it.

    I am acquiring one tomorrow, but I have heard of issues where people who play with a motion+ for the first time on Skyward Sword have the game fail to work.

    Seeing as i am going to run the game from USB (I will rip my own copy from the original once i get it, but i don't have it now), how do I go about fixing this?

    I want to get used to the Motion+ controls as I have heard from some that they are very precise and others that they are basically useless. I'd like more information.

    EDIT: I find it noteworthy to supply that I have got MW3 working perfectly on my USB loader, so I assume my cIOS are all updated. (my brother got it as a gift :D

    I am loving the art style of this game. Had doubts about it before but it is simply beautiful even with composite cables.

    Err, if you read the first post you would know that I specifically said not to discuss how to get the game working on your Wii.
    But since I'm a pretty nice guy and stuff, I'll help you anyways.

    Since you've never played a legitimate Motion+ game before, you'll have to play the instructional video first (Use alt. dol to load player.dol).

    The Motion+ controls are vital to the game and work really well. Really enhance the swordplay.

    I have also noticed the low resolution and artifacts/lines here and there but since I am playing this on a 60 inch TV, I can't complain... it's the Wii afterall. Game runs great though. Playing from disc.

    I love all the changes and departures from previous Zelda games without destroying the core Zelda formula.

    I'm 15 hours into the game and I've seen some really clever level/dungeon design.

    I also love the fact that I am actually in need of loads more rupees. Wallet upgrades are awesome!

    I'm so very sorry, my eyes were glued to the obsessive screenshots :/ I'm really very sorry. I feel so damned ashamed, because usually I actually do read the first post.

    I feel like a dumbass...

    Enjoying the game so far...

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Does anyone know how many dungeons are in the game? I'm going to take a guess and say 4, but I'm hoping it's more than that.

    Right now I'm at the part where you have to search for Kikwis. I'm loving the game so far.

    The music in the game is soooooo catchy!

    If there's one thing I wish was better, it's the textures. If I had a better PC, I would probably run the game in Dolphin just so it looks even better.

    I feel this fix here...

    Famitsu review scores (11/15) – perfect score included
    Does the controller mess up with some people or is it they don't know how to use it?
    Do you think that there is interference with the wiimote for these mess ups?
    Were you the one that said this will be the worst Zelda because of the changes?
