I have it reserved at two different GameStops, though I'm probably not going to get it at either one if I can get it at Wal-Mart at midnight. The place I originally preordered it wouldn't be open until 1 in the afternoon. Fuck that! So if I don't get it at midnight, it will be 9 a.m.

Oh, and...

Tried the Demo at target, not bad nut it takes a little getting used to, though the wiimote did kind of mess up a bit

I'm praying that Wal-Mart has the bundle at midnight. I don't know if I could wait 9 more hours for GameStop to open. Sleep deprivation, here I come!

Lol yeah waggling apparently screws up the Wiimote during the game. It seemed to follow my movements pretty well in the Demo, though a few times when i would slash right at an angle it would slash left at an angle. Pretty much it works pretty well if you make normal slashes and don't start waggling up a storm. Bow aiming was pretty cool, it was pretty much holding the Wiimote straight up and moving it around, it worked pretty well.

So...just finished playing like 5 straight hours of it and...wow...yeah...wow...

I won't spoil anything, but it suffices to say that THIS is how a motion control Zelda should be. Let's not be naive and say it's perfect because it certainly isn't, but as far as my game thus far goes, it does a 99% accurate job of replicating everything you do as long as you have it properly calibrated. It looks really cool to see your slashes on the screen.

But those awesome motion controls would be NOTHING without actual stuff that utilizes it and this is where I became impressed. In the interest of not being too spoilery, I'll just say I died twice in a row on the same single enemy. I cannot recall anything like this in a Zelda game ever. And this wasn't because he hits you for 99 damage or anything like that. The enemy requires cunning to beat, and it was actually more like some sort of enemy puzzle than a fight. When I thought I had the solution I was wrong, too. I thought that was just really cool.

And the game has style, definitive style. The watercolor motif (especially the sky) looks astounding. I also really like the music and overall presentation...it's vibrant for lack of a better word.

Anything more would be spoiler methinks so I'm just gonna shut up and talk with you guys after it comes out.

A little less than two hours for me. Walmart had the game, but not the bundle. At least I have Skyrim to get me busy, which is awesome as well.

Got the bundle, wanted to eat lunch first. Starting now!

Also got the Collector's Edition Guide, because it's cool. If anybody else was wondering, yes, the "cloth map" inside is actually cloth.
