@Oddy: and my complaint is lack of side quests - I cannot agree that there is always to do, after each minor step in the main story I have been visiting Skyloft and I have to say that not always I have found at least 1 side-quest :/

How minor are you talking? I've been revisiting Skyloft once per area so far (i.e. after Faron Woods/before Deep Woods, after Skyview Temple/before Eldin Volcano) and there's been more than enough to do.

I know of two side quests already that I missed according to a walkthrough; in terms of full blown side quests I've only rescued the girl, given some gratitude crystals to the monster, and broken the chandelier and run some pumpkin soup as repayment. I've also done a bit of upgrading, shopping, bug-collecting, surface-to-sky treasure chest opening, and just exploring Skyloft (there are still places I haven't visited).

If you're ever really that bored I would just try talking to townspeople or consulting a walkthrough for more side quests as both add a lot to your immersion of the game world and should make the experience more engaging. Also I think the areas below the clouds are more than entertaining enough to hold their own throughout the game; I spent a fair amount of time just killing a bunch of natives ("That's racist!") just for kicks in Faron Woods after my encounter with Ghirahim before returning to Skyloft. To each their own, I suppose.

Just how massive is the game world? Is it bigger than Twilight Princess and Wind Waker?

Your signature is wrong. Skyward Sword IS on a dual-layer disc.

No, I don't think it is. All the dual-layer disks I have look different, more gold coloured on the bottom. Skyward Sword doesn't.

Plus, I've not heard of anyone complaining of disc-read errors with Skyward Sword.

I preordered from Amazon and they said my copy will arrive late November - early December. At least I'm getting the CD and gold Remote.

I don't know, but even if it isn't, the areas on the surface are so dense and intricately designed that you could still spent a lot more time exploring them than in the previous games.

The game world may not be bigger than the other games, but it is certainly denser and much less barren.

@Adam I love luring Bokobobobobooolins (or whatever they're called) onto a tightrope and then smacking them in the face with my beetle and watching them tumble to their doom. Even more fun than hitting them with a slingshot on the ropes or "jostling" them off.

Got to say the only thing annoying me in this game is the fact that every time you load a saved game then collect someting itdoes that whole "Whoo you caught a ......." and the proceeds to show you the inventory.It gets old fast!!. I mean I've collected like 10 skull things and yet it keeps telling me what they are. No need Nintendo, no need at all. Other than that so far this game rocks.It could be the best Zelda yet!!
Personally I've not struggled with the controls and when they seem wonky it is usually down to me not holding the remote the right way up. Bowling bombs was initially tricky but I seem to have cracked it now. I like the fact that as you play more you get better at it. By the end of the game I reckon I'll be able to give Zorro a run for his money!!

What's this bit for again?

Ha ha, Oddy, I didn't think of that. I couldn't figure out how to jostle. Link just falls the moment I meet the enemy, then they fall, too... Works for me, I guess.

I can't wait to play the game myself.

However I came here to know if anyone knew if they would re-release or make another run of the bundle? Because I pre-ordered mine, like alot of people, however it's now on backorder. And that's just the official way of saying, "we sold out but don't know if/when we'll receive more", you know <.<; I mean it's sold out EVERYWHERE lol.

Heck! Here in Canada we got the steelbook case that comes with the regular edition of the game. I pre-ordered that like many other Canadians, a month ago, but on release date my order was just flat out cancelled because they didn't have the steelbook case. Many others are in the same boat The GOOD NEWS with that shop though, is that I complained so much, they gave me a coupon to get the game for free <.<; So I can't complain TOO much.

But I really want the bundle :[

Wow. Doing a backflip and a frontflip in the middle of a small living room requires lots of skill and dexterity.

Are the bomb controls similar to Wii Sports' Bowling? If so, then how are they terrible?

This game is awesome, but my only complaint right now is that you have to press + to open up the map (unless somebody else knows something I don't). That's fine and all, but I like to see a smaller version of the map on the corner of the screen (like in previous Zelda titles) so I can see where I'm going at all times. It feels like I just can't remember where anything is which leads to me getting lost a lot.

Just got the Beetle updated! can finally drop bombs on unsuspecting victims >: ) (Lookout you darn rock throwing birds!) also loving the dessert it really reminds me of the gameplay in The Minish cap, where you had to use the Pegasus shoes to get around in the marsh.

The bomb controls seem to be the worst of the motion controls, Oddy. I'm getting used to it a little, but I still wish there were a button to lock your path in place before doing the bowl motion.

Kobe, I wish they had added that, too. Or at least, I can't figure out how to get a mini-map either. I have to constantly open the map in the sky since it is hard to tell where you are.
