Hey guys! It’s me, Hope. Aloha has TONS of homework tonight preparing for finals, so I will be taking over this blog tonight. So, for lack of a better topic right now, I will be sharing the thing that is taking up most of my time right now, frustrates me to no end, and is very addicting. That thing is…………… The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
Here we go. We start off the begining of the game in Skyloft, a floating city above the clouds where our hero Link lives.
Skyloft is also home to his archnemisis Groose and his gorgeous love interest, Zelda.
Link is living and training at the Knight Acadamy,pretty much Skyloft’s version of high school. The main mode of transportation in the game is by a type of bird called a Loftwing, and the Knight Acadamy is hosting a Loftwing race. Natrally, Groose challanges Link to win the race, and it just so happens that the winner gets a present and a special afternoon alone with Zelda. The race soon begins, and after much repitition, you finally win.
That afternoon, during your time alone, Zelda gives you your first tool, a Sailcloth that is used like a parachute to break your fall or let you coast through gusts of wind.
Shortly after, as you are flying in the clouds together, Zelda is wisked away by a mysterious tornado storm….
If thats not enough of a hook to get you to want to play the game, then I don’t know what is.
I really reccomend this either as a Christmas present or something you buy yourself just for fun. You don’t even really have to be a gamer to play Zelda, it is just pure fun that is easy to pick up and become a part of the fandom.
Also, if you so already have this game, let me know what you think of it. Do you like the Wii Motion Plus Feature? What do you think of the plot so far? How far along are you in the game? What do you hope the ending will be?
(Aloha’s note: After yesterday’s apology-filled post, I was filled with relief that I’d fixed the issues with my lack of memory and the blog chain. But another member of the blog chain pointed out that I’d actually gone two days early–today was my day to post! More apologizes to everyone involved. If you came today looking for the post, I published it yesterday. Thanks for your understanding!)
Okay, I felt I had to comment on this post.
1. This game sounds like a lot of fun, and I saw people playing this on Luke Conard’s channel Luke’s Arcade, and it looks like totally awesome!
2. Nice tags. At first I was confused when it said Butterfinger (huh Allice!) because I didn’t know if you were referring to me or not (You spelled my name wrong, but that’s okay) And then I realized it was referring to me and butterfinger… how delightfully gross to think back on.
Thank you for that visual, Hope. I appreciate it much.
But anyways, nice post!
Aloha here. I saw Hope put some weird tags on, but I hadn’t had a chance to read them yet. Sorry if she was weird.
And yeah, SS is a blast ^.^ I love it. Hope’s farther than me, though.
I’m really hoping it’s just my computer again, but the post from yesterday has disappeared.
Dude, you’re right– I hadn’t noticed that. What the heck? I’ll try to figure out what’s wrong….
Thanks for telling me!
I know Aloha at least is a Nerdfighter, but I don’t know if she (or you, Hope), watch hankgames, which is Hank Green’s Let’s Play channel. It’s a fantastically funny channel and TOTALLY worth a watch, plus Hank’s wife Katherine (who is very funny) is playing Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Really, watch it.
Hope loves Vlogbrothers, but I’m the one that watches Hankgames ^.^ Well, okay, I’ve watched Hank play a few videos-worth of Assassins Creed, Katherine playing one or two videos of Skyward Sword, and John playing like ten videos-worth of that soccer game he loves.
