Default Skyward Sword

EDGE Magazine: 10/10
"How apt that this ultimate tale of hero-making should see Nintendo's hardware become the console it was always meant to be."

Official Nintendo Magazine UK: 98%
"It's not something we say lightly, but the Zelda series really has never been this good...[Skyward Sword is the] best Zelda game ever made."

First two reviews out, early print reviews.
Can't wait. Wish it was in HD, but it's not going to hurt the enjoyment one bit.

Super excited for this one. The art style looks fantastic and it looks to have a few more RPGish elements to it. I've gone almost media blind on this one, just like I have with Uncharted 3 and AC:Revelations. Will be a busy end of year for sure

I'm media blind by default these days. I don't read gaming sites anymore and mostly get news from BM and podcasts.

Yeah I've stopped looking at trailers and things for it. I ordered my copy today (Along with Motion+ attachment) from nzgameshop so I can just sit back and wait for it to arrive.

It releases in the UK 6 days before us so you might even get it on or close to NZ launch day. I can't recall how long it takes for shipping with nzgameshop.

I'm waiting for the price info on the limited gold edition to pre-order from them.

They say 4-12 days so who knows. If it's not here before NZ release, I'm basically unplugging myself from the net until it does.

Yeah I wanted the gold one, but realistically I probably can't afford that AND Mario Kart 7.

When I looked several weeks ago it had pricing, but it seems that nobody has pricing anymore. I remember it was the price of buying the normal game in NZ, so I figured I'd get the limited one from nzgameshop and score an awesome remote with M+ built in. Considering the Wii U will use the same remotes it's probably a worthwhile investment this late in the life of the system IMO. Even if not, I'm sure it'll hold it's value.

That, and it looks way cool!

Everything I (or my coworker) have ordered through nzgameshop arrives in 4 working days. Great prices, great delivery times. I love that website so much.

Yeah it's a great store!

I was about to cancel my order and wait for the collectors edition in case it ended up being not much more, but then they emailed me saying they'd shipped my Motion+ addon - bah!

Damn them and their efficient and friendly free shipping of individual items so you get them sooner!

That's awesome!

I find the Motion + add-ons to make the remote quite bulky and not as nice to use. One reason to get the special edition is to have a better experience with the WMI+ built-in remote.

Two weeks out and NZGS still doesn't have a price for it. I'm itching to pre-order it!

Metacritic has 4 reviews in for Skyward Sword and it's sitting pretty at 98. Top of the all time list. I wonder how far it'll drop when the rest of the reviews hit.
