I've gone exploring around at night just to talk to people. I think I'm about midway through the game and I know there must be more night stuff coming up as:You may not have noticed, but there's a bed in Beedle's flying shop...
Random island I found spoilers:
Beedle's Island says you can visit him at night and he'll give you something, but I still can't fly at night so I guess I get something I can fly with.
I completed the game about two weeks ago - easily my GOTY 2011. My children had been watching me play it since Christmas (they actually preferred it to CBeebies) despite having to run out of the room when some of the scarier monsters came on (they're only four years old). They were so distraught when I finished it (my daughter was sobbing- the ending is rather bitter-sweet) that I've had to buy them plush Link figures
, and I've promised them I'll buy a 3DS so they can watch me play Ocarina Of Time
Personally I loved the controls - playing the Wii version of Twilight Princess
made me wish I'd bought the GameCube version, but after Skyward Sword
I never want to go back to mashing the 'A' button - at least as far as LOZ games are concerned.
