1000px-Kokiri_ForestFew Zelda games, or games in general, have made as big of an impact on the world of gaming as Ocarina of Time. While all of the areas in this game are memorable, intriguing and challenging, none are more important than Kokiri Forest. This wooded village might seem like a wonderful place in which to live, especially since the game sets it up to be nothing short of an in-game utopia. However, the personal fairies and the lack of any real responsibilities cannot change the fact that Kokiri Forest would be a horrible place in which to live, especially for the Kokiri. Hit the jump to find out why!

DaveyApril 11th, 2014 by Davey

Star BombEgoraptor and friends have created a rap album and week-by-week are uploading videos to go along with the hilarious tunes. This week the Zelda song was up, and though it’s pretty crass, overall it’s absolutely hilarious. If you know Egoraptor already, the video series is similar to his usual style, but in catchy, hip-hop form.

Two Days Away: One Man Mini-Marathon

MasesApril 10th, 2014 by Mases


A reminder that the One Man Mini-Marathon is set to begin on Saturday at 6am US Central Time. We will be raising money for the Galloping Ghost Arcade with a goal of reaching the $2500 donation mark. Throughout the event, I will be playing through the entirety of the Legend of Zelda, the Adventure of Link, A Link to the Past, Link’s Awakening, and Ocarina of Time. One man – five Zelda games – in 24-hours.

To be completely honest, I’m not sure I’m going to be able to do it. Part of the thrill of this event is to see whether I can actually make it through to the end. Even more important to me is raising money for the expansion of the Galloping Ghost Arcade. I will need your help in accomplishing my goal. If you missed the earlier post, check out the initial announcement for information on the marathon. To find out how you can help, make the jump.

SSWhile trying to find an art style for Zelda Wii U, Nintendo experimented with various art styles in HD, some of which were art styles that had been used for past Zelda titles. As you may know, The Wind Waker‘s visuals were found to have a significant improvement, leading to the production of The Wind Waker HD. Now, the people on YouTube channel Nintendo Life have done similarly by testing Skyward Sword‘s art style in HD, and have since prepared a video that demonstrates how an HD remake of Skyward Sword could look.
