That pumpkin-carrying minigame :evil: :x :capnscotty:

Good grief. Almost wish it had motion controls, it might actually make it easier :fp:

First time after posting I manage to do it 8-) Finally

EDIT: Who split this into it's own topic I don't have the post count to pull this off! :dread:

I actually just wanted to complain about the pumpkins but I think someone didn't like me bumping a four year old thread :shifty:

I don't actually remember it so I voted s(o)uper because I like the pun

The bamboo cutting was where it was at

I've tried to erase most of Skyward Sword from my memory, but I could've sworn you had to use motion controls for this minigame. :slol:
I remember it taking a few attempts, but nothing too bad.

I honestly don't remember it being very tricky at all.

The bamboo cutting is fun, tbf. Last time I did it the guy said I needed a longer sword. Is there an optional longsword like the biggoron sword in this, or do I get a better one as the story goes on?

The pumpkin balancing is definitely a lot easier when you Z-target, so maybe that's why I struggled so much to begin with.

Aside from that (and the awkward motion controls in places), I'm having fun with it, though.

I can't really remember that one but I certainly enjoyed the Bamboo cutting one.

Oh you were not side stepping? That explains why you struggled. :lol:

I dunno where you are in the story but rest assured you'll get a sword for the job at some point............ and it wont break when you use it.

Really liked the Skydiving one and the shooting one as well. :wub:

This minigame sucks ass. I think it's mandatory to complete the sidequest with the demon? It sucked anyway.

Looking for the flames to upgrade my sword.

Skyward Sword or Twilight Princess? :shifty:

Got Twilight Princess HD lined up on the Wii U once I've finished Skyward Sword. Making the most of actually owning a Wii!

Got to the underwater place now, looking for the queen of the dragons or something. The Zora-Link spin jump :wub: So bad at jumping out the water with it :slol:

I've never felt the urge to go back and play this, but I remember really enjoying it. It had really good dungeons iirc.

Someone make Frank a logo

These sections in SS are more interesting then in TP. The music when they spot you. :dread: :dread: :dread:

Yeah, they're better than I remember the bits in Twilight Princess being, but I don't like how you can't actually defend yourself at all. Got spotted by one of the Poe things when I had a single tear left to find and that immediately alerted EVERYONE.

Just entered the Ancient Cistern. Backtracking to the earlier dungeons is a bit strange. Took me a while to find the key :shifty:
