So far this game is making me miss Twilight Princess, and that's something I didn't think was possible. I'm glad everyone else is enjoying it, but I'm pretty close to just trading it in.

Agreed. I found Midna and the whole story of the Twilight Realm to be much more interesting. Skyward Sword is a good game with good sword combat, but the story is just too convoluted. There isn't much backstory to Demise, and I don't get how he is related to Ganon. He never appears in any other games (since the developers obviously made him up just for this game).

I hate how the developers add in more stuff in each new game. The narrative is all over the place, and with each new game, the series gets more and more complicated.

Maybe it would be better to just treat most Zelda games as self-contained stories, with very minimal connections (Triforce, Master Sword, etc.). Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are related, Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks are related. A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening are related. All the other games might as well be separate stories.

Skyward Sword pretty much retcons everything that was established by previous games. Maybe Nintendo should remake the older games and update them with Skyward Sword's narrative / history (Skyloft, Demise, Girahim, Goddess Harp, Goddess Hylia, The Imprisoned, etc.).

Did you fall asleep at the end of the game? He tells you indirectly how he's related to Ganondorf (his reincarnation). He doesn't reappear because he's killed for good and serves as the origin of Ganondorf's evil.

Would you prefer all games to be the same with no new stuff? You must like EA Sports games then ;) Also, there's nothing aside from a few hints from Nintendo that suggests that all of the games are linked together.

In a way, some of the games are self-contained, because there are only a few similarities amongst the games, but there are huge differences among them, suggesting that they may not be linked as mentioned earlier.

How? Skyward Sword didn't do anything that contradicts Ocarina of Time's story. Sure they didn't mention Hylia in the legends of previous games, but legends aren't complete through generations. Some are forgotten entirely and some change over time (this was mentioned in the game btw).

Actually some games do mention Hylia just not by name. As a Goddess who became mortal, of the royal blood. I forgot what game it was from though.
Edit: I want to say Link to the Past? I might be wrong though, I know it's one of the 2D games.

Also Four Swords Adventures called Ganon being the rebirth of an Ancient Demon.

I will never understand how some people claim that Zelda has no story. I mean, do they have some kind of problem with understanding or seeing the story on- screen? Zelda games have just as much story as any adventure game, and it's mostly better written and even more touching than in most games.

If the cut scenes aren't longer than the game play and there's no voice acting, how can you call that a story?

And thus with one sentence, all retro RPGS in existence were cut down to not having a story.

Just like books... if only there was a way to tell whats going on using a form of writing.

I'm almost through with it, at the final boss. Have all items, hearts and stuff except the unbreakable shield which I just tried to get in the bossrush sidequest but got killed by the eighth boss. :(
Will try again tomorrow, and then complete the game.

Still have some questions.

1. There are suspicious holes near the pumpkin fields and other areas. What are they for?

2. What can I use the mushroom powder for?

3. What do you get for playing the pumpkin song perfect?

4. Where is the hidden spot with the 5 cats in Skyloft?

5. What do you get for beating the record (43 slices) in the bamboo minigame?

6. Flying around the clouds, then jumping off the bird, skydiving, there were some flying beetle things, but now I can't get them to reappear. Where are they?

The game is great. So glad Tingle is in it :) This is my fav Zelda next to Majora's Mask and The Wind Waker.

I didn't like it much in the beginning, but it gets better. Stick with it. It's a major first-party Nintendo game; you'll be able to trade or sell it for just as much a month or two down the road.

I agree. The beginning was sooo slow but now I think it is my favorite Zelda, maybe even my favorite game ever.

Why can't Metroid crawl?

Best cartoon ever. Warner Bros. should make more ambitious cartoons that are actually wacky and funny. Loony Tunes Show is a good step in that direction, but the humor is nowhere near the brilliance of Animaniacs and Tiny Toons. They need to bring back Tom Rugger, Steven Spielberg, and the whole team that made Animaniacs and Tiny Toons.

The game is great. So glad Tingle is in it :) This is my fav Zelda next to Majora's Mask and The Wind Waker.

Tingle? Mushroom Powder? Man, I'm missing more than I thought (I thought I was only missing 2 Heart Pieces).

For 6, I think you can do it on most islands, as long as you skydive to the island from a high altitude. I got them to appear above an island to the southeast of Fun Fun Island. You just get 20 rupees for catching all the bugs.

Anyone else pro at the game on Fun Fun Island? Once I unlocked it, I used it to fund all my major purchases.
