Happy Birthday, Skyward Sword!

This... is incredible.

I can't believe it, but it's true. Somehow, a year has passed, and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is officially one year old. Here in the U.S. we've still got two days to go, but this is the date it was released in Europe.

Wow. It doesn't feel like a year. Not at all.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to really celebrate its birthday, since my family plans on heading to some festival thing. And this morning I've spent SS's birthday browsing Zelda Dungeon and playing Link's Awakening, so yeah. But hopefully I can celebrate it on the twentieth, which will be the day that I, personally, have had it for a year.

It's just so unbelievable! It still feels like I was just recently pouring over websites and absorbing every little bit of pre-game info I could get before its release date. And then... completing the game is still so vivid in my mind...

If really does prove the saying, doesn't it? "Time flies when you're having fun"?

Yeah. Really. :)

Interestingly enough, in addition to Skyward Sword turning one, the Wii U comes out today. I was on the fence for a very long time over whether I should get it on launch date or not, and I finally decided against it. There really aren't any games I want to play on it yet. Besides, Club Nintendo doesn't even offer a warranty extension! What's with that? I really do want that limited edition deluxe package though... I hope limited edition isn't TOO limited...

I'll just leave it at that for now. If I end up having more time later today, I'll post some of my favorite Skyward Sword trailers and my thoughts about them. Of course, I already HAVE done that, when we were still waiting for SS... but, you know, it HAS been a year. Maybe my thoughts have changed?

Well, that's all for now. Have a great day everyone! Play some Skyward Sword or Wii U or something! ;)
