New Skyward Sword vids pimping zombies and fish dragons

In the latest Talking to Women about Videogames (post coming on Tuesday), I had the audacity to say that Mass Effect was the last great single player-only series in gaming. That was silly. It was arguably even sillier when a few Youtube commenters corrected me, stating that Skyrim (a game they have presumably not yet played) is the real last great single player experience in gaming. 

That got me wondering; where were the Zelda fans at to defend their favorite series? Isn't anyone out there ready to declare that Skyward Sword (another game they have presumably not yet played) is the really realest last great single player experience in gaming?

All I know is, the game looks like it has everything it needs to be one of the best Zelda games ever made. The graphics look amazing by any standard, the swimming looks similar to the excellent Zora Link-stuff from Majora's Mask, there are switches to whip, water spouts to ride, spiked walls to dash from, and... purple zombie Bokoblins? All great in theory. We'll see for ourselves next month if Nintendo pulls it off in practice.
