Holy shit, when did this happen? It's coming out in *two months*?!? OMG. I thought my Zelda days were behind me. I have to plan for this massive upcoming productivity loss. I am so excited. Thank you James.
I've played through the first temple now, and I'm sad to say that I'm just not feeling the excitement in this one... =/ Mainly (a) the storyline is just failing to draw me in, but also (b) I'm just not digging the controls. 1:1 feels like it gets in the way more often than not, and the interface also feels clunky and complicated in general. I miss Ocarina of Time... (I'd say that was the pinnacle of perfection for both storyline and controls, though Twilight Princess had great controls too.)
So far, I'm enjoying it quite a bit. I think the flying is a neat touch, but I'm a little disappointed that the flying sections are actually fairly small and there's really no flying combat (so far). Seems like an opportunity left on the table. Personally, I really like the 1:1 controls for most thing (the sword especially), but for others it doesn't work as well (e.g., the bug net). Overall, I'm enjoying it quite a bit.
