Don’t tell me what you saw when you watched this Skyward Sword video, I don’t want to know


I sure hope you like the above cinematic for Skyward Sword. I even hope that you learned a little about the game because of it. As for me, am planning on staying far, far away. Yes, I may have uploaded the video for you all to enjoy, but honestly, I don’t want to know anymore about the game than I already do for the simple fact of spoiling what should be one of the greatest adventures Nintendo has ever created.

This is nothing new for me. I have gone on a media blackout for a couple of games before. With Skyward Sword, however, it is different. You see, when Twilight Princess released back in good old 2006 I felt that the media coverage surrounding the game ruined a whole lot of the experience for me before I even put the game in my brand new Wii console. I knew all about how Link would be transformed into a wolf, and how Midna would be accompanying me on my adventure through Hyrule. I knew about the fishing and even about the mechanics of the Gale Boomerang.

In short, I plan on staying about from as much Skyward Sworrd coverage as my RSS reader will allow me to. If you are unlike me, however, there are a few more videos for you to enjoy after the break. Just don’t tell me what they contain, because I haven’t watched them either.

    Wow, I can’t believe they decided to kill off Link after the prologue of the game is over. Hopefully this new character Raidel will be fun to play as.

  2. Richard says:

    I’ll just say this about the video, Eugene: I want the soundtrack…now!!! 🙂

  3. Gavrilo Princip says:

    I never would have guessed that Tingle was the Demon Lord

  4. Damn. Turns out Beedle was the bad guy all along. Should have seen that coming….

  5. Skotski says:

    Apparently Sonic’s in it. And so is Snake.

  6. magnum says:

    Yeah, and what’s with Don Knotts always showin’ up?

    (i dunno if that joke is too old/too TV Land for this crowd…)

    Yes Eugene! I know EXACTLY what you mean, I’m completely avoiding all videos, as to ensure the Entire release is a surprise. I’ve already seen enough. When Brawl was coming out, I foolishly watched so many videos, I’d essentially ended up watching the entire Subspace Emissary online, so when the game finally came out after so long over here in the UK, I already knew Everything that was happening, and it was Such a letdown for me. I am NOT letting that happen with my favourite franchise (I am a frigging HUGE Zelda DekuNut :P)

    Thank you, however, for posting it here so that everybody who Is interested in seeing it, can in fact do so 🙂

  8. Brandon says:

    What!? Luigi challenged Link to a three round game of Chinese Checkers!? Because Link would dare wear the same color clothes as he!? Mind boggling!

    In all seriousness, I completely understand where you are coming from. I don’t want to know the game’s story before I jump into it myself. Especially Zelda games.

  9. Mohan says:

    Must not watch!

  10. Stan says:

    Glad to see they fixed Link’s lips and Zelda is really pretty!…

    Just trolling, Link still has pouty lips and Zelda’s a butterface

  11. deepthought says:

    eh, not impressed. looks dated. more mute puppets conveying emotions through pantomime and giggles.

    and yeah, stan… the faces are a bit…. bleh.

    i’m expecting the same zelda game, again. for the fans here, probably a good thing. but i tired of the formula a while back.

  12. shelldone says:

    lol calm down eugene, this is a shitty video that has like nothing about the games story other than what you already know… is that theyre in skyloft lol.

  13. Lord Lemmy says:

    My God! The main villain is really a giant, evil, flying, man eating potato called Paltator! That’s so crazy! And Link has to eat it in order to cure the coma he put Zelda in and Ghirahim is actually Dimentio, from Super Paper Mario.

  14. HyperSonic says:

    The only non-spoiler-ific thing I can say:

    If the first trailer is anything to go by, they weren’t kidding when they said they were “changing the formula.”

  15. The convenience of these machines is hard
    to match. But I do not use the sponge in its mouth because it looks too pretty, so
    the fish is now the guard of the sink. And so it was with Julia’s enamel
    sauce pan which she bought in Paris in the 1940s and used up until the 1990s.
