Video: Skyward Sword videos highlight new gameplay

It was either slow in the gaming news department the last couple of days or everyone really was blown away by the new Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword videos making the rounds.

As with such things, some are more successful than others, but no matter where you go, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better example of Midna cosplay than Kagomechann's.
