Pro gamer FnJimmy goes hands-on with Skyward Sword in the Nintendo booth. Watch as he destroys the first demo and has time for another.
FnJimmy and I headed to the Nintendo booth to play some Zelda Skyward Sword. You can choose the bird riding level, a dungeon level, or a boss battle. They only give you a 10 minute demo to keep the lines moving and FnJimmy had played a little bit of the combat last year, so I encouraged him to take on the bird riding.
Most of the people in front of us had tried the bird riding too, none of them seemed able to beat it in the 10 minutes allowed. Noobs... give that Wii mote to FnJimmy and watch him do his best Fred Savage from that one movie from the 80's...
Uhhh... No, the other one...
Yeah, he may be a n00b at FPS games, but FnJimmy was born with a Nintendo controller in his hand. Okay... back to reality... Watch FnJimmy rail the birds so fast he still has time to do the dungeon level. "Good job, Jimmy!"
FnJimmy had a huge grin on his face after that and wouldn't let us leave the Nintendo booth until I had recorded his takes. So here is the offical FnJimmy hands-on impressions of The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword.
The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword releases this holiday season for the Nintendo Wii.

Why I think the Zelda series is so awesome, mainly the N64 ones.
I grew up playing alot of games, such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Gunstar Heroes, Mortal Kombat and others, but the ones that influenced me the most were The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Majora's Mask. I find the ideas, stories, items, and characters all very intrigueing. Like the temples are all cool, the bosses are all cool, and all the little side quests are cool and one of the coolest things about the two is how dark and kinda creepy they are and can be. In Ocarina of Time, when I was a kid and I used to go into the Market Town as adult link, and I'd get humped by a ReDead I would actually scream or when a wallmaster comes down and takes me to I don't know where, I'd be so scared. Majora's Mask just in general has a very eerie feel to it Especially the 4th temple and when you learn the Elegy of Emptiness. Another thing that's great about Zelda is the music, it's not just catchy like a lot of video game music, but it's actually beautiful. Like the Song of Storms makes me so happy when I hear it.same with alot of them like Minuet to Forest, and mots of all, the Great Fairy Fountain's song. Soooo peaceful. This game was so meaningful to me that it's the reason why I decided to grow my hair as a kid, I wanted to be just like Link. There are really unlimited good things I could say about this game, but the best reason why it's so good is just because it is, that really is the best way I can put it, and I'm glad Nintendo made that series.
On a side note. if you like Beyblade Metal Fusion, you might like this, more to come.

Seriously, giant enemy crab!!
Hey you know me. I'm much better talking into the camera with a giant grin on my face after I just played one of my most highlt exciting for games. Better this than me trying to write what I remember a week later.
Nintendo stood it's grow again for another year!
Nintendo's press conference 2010 was something to look forward to.
With some nintendo news under rap, what can you expect for the company?
Well, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, Kirby: Epic Yarn, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Metriod: Other M, Donkey Kong Country: Returns, GoldenEye 007, Kid Icarus: UpRising and Epic Mickey!
Nintendo started the key note with a demo of Zelda and finished with the NEW 3DS! The Wii is maintaining its speed with games, and with it's handheld.
I was hoping that they would talk about the Wii HD/2, but I can only dream.
The new Zelda was demoed and it was a great start. They talked about bring back classics and that's what they did! All the game showed at the conference were unique and different! From the Kirby game to the Zelda one, they stand out like the hall mark of Nintendo.
The 3DS seems a bit bigger and the top screen to. I'm wondering if that will pixalate the original games being played with the 3DS. Even so, Nintendo did not mention the Vitallity sensor... Oh well.
With majority of these game being released this hoilday season and a few next year, Nintendo plans to bank on us. SOLD!!
Keeping it simple and on a tight budget. I'll look back on the year and tell you, the games I'd be looking out for to get cheap during the biggest shopping weekend of the year. And a quick preview of the new releases.
Pretty sure Amazon is going to be blowing it out bigger and better than last year. Buy.com has recently had some good deals as well, but they beat you up on shipping. Toy R Us loves in store Buy 2 Get 1 Free. Target will have some great stuff in store as well. Can't wait to see what Kmart is planning. Gamestop? Whether you go in store or online, shop around first.
Before we get into the Black Friday stuff. Zelda Skyward Sword and WWE '12 will be releasing before the chaos of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.Read full story...
Goukijones, BatRastered, Choke, and FnJimmy talk about Halo CE Anniversary, Rage's disc 1 issues, Black friday and more
Listen here Jimmy!
Leave some feedback below.
If you're wondering, the games that FnJimmy said he hadn't finished the other week were GTA Vice City and San Andreas. He only finishes the ones with numbers in their name.Read full story...
Nintendo names and shows the new Zelda during their keynote.
The first thing on Nintendo's stage this morning: Zelda - and the name of the new Zelda title: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Not the greatest name in my book, but oh well - how's it look?
Skyward Sword appears to have Link as an adult, but wait - am I seeing cel-shading? Why yes, I think I am! Skyward Sword has a more realistic look than Wind Waker, but it's still laced with a cel-shaded look that I find to personally be quite unappealing. I don't know; you'll have to judge the look for yourself, but as of yet I've not found any official screenshots.
The game uses the Wii Motion Plus and seems to have true one-to-one motion for sword fights. The one-to-one combat ends up being a critical part of the gameplay, because enemies will be required to be hit from certain angles at times in order to defeat them. I admit that the gameplay looks to have some really cool aspects, and it really does look like Nintendo has evolved Zelda and made something that combines Zelda and the Wii perfectly.
Skyward Sword; one-to-one fighting; a little bit of cel-shading (ugh). This is the next Zelda.
Keep checking out Gouki for your up-to-the-minute E3 coverage!
EDIT: Miyamoto just confirmed that Skyward Sword will not be out in 2010; it will come out some time in 2011.
