Nah, going to stay up tonight and watch nintendo though.
i already posted everything i was going to say here in the other thread...argh sorry guys!
Skyrim is probably what got me most excited, there is a 7 min gameplay demo which looks amazing...check it out...
Skyward is 14 hours away!!!
I was reflecting on how the lead up to Skyward Sword is different from Twilight Princess. No one is sure of Skyward Sword because they don't know what to expect, very little has been shown, and what has been shown is rather unique. Twilight Princess however immediatly demonstrated itself as the most "epic Zelda ever" etc. and as such everyone placed their own hopes and dreams on it. As such, many people became dissapointed when the final product came out because there were so many different expectations and with the massive hype marketing campain everyone thought it would be "The BEST".
Skyward Sword is really not telling us that much at this point in time, the graphics isn't pandering to our desires of a Zelda Lotr hybrid, nor do we have any info on the story to decide whether it is "kiddy" or "dark and mature".
Not knowing what to expect, i think is fantastic. Every Zelda i've played has been more or less the same, a to roll, b to swing sword, an item in every dungeon that you use on the boss, etc. With each of the 3D Zeldas i always get bored playing through the tutorials because its the same stuff from the last game, none of us really need to relearn it. The dungeons at the start of the games are so easy, us vets beat it in a heartbeat. but now, we actually don't know what to expect. In Skyward Sword we may have to play though the Tutorial, and get that awesome new feeling of discovery, like when i first played Zelda, new mechanics, no longer is it A to roll, but to sprint, the combat mechanics look like they take some getting used to, and everything in general isn't so familiar...
The get to my point, Skyward Sword at this time, is unknown. Tomorrow we will discover probably more about it in this one sitting then we already know. In my opinion this could have a drastic effect on how Skyward Sword is recieved.
But mostly i just wanted to write a lot of stuff because i'm as excited as a 5 year old the day before christmas. seriously...i'm a grown adult and i'm ranting like i havn't hit puberty...lol
