Collection Spotlight: Hylian Musicians

Tyler TagApril 18th, 2014 by Tyler Tag

2This week’s Collection Spotlight will be very unique in its own way. So much so that it will start off with the spotlighter’s own introduction. Enjoy!


Hi, my name is Izzi. I am 16, and I love music, video games, and reading. Zelda didn’t play much of a role in my life as a child. When I was four, my next door neighbor’s brother had a Nintendo 64, and Majora’s Mask. That was my first Zelda game, and it remains my favorite in the franchise, and one of my favorite games of all time. I don’t remember much about it as a kid, and I kind of forgot about Zelda until Twilight Princess came out. When we got our Wii, my dad bought me Twilight Princess, and I fell in love with Zelda all over again. To hear more stories like this and even see a Zelda-themed high school band performance, hit the jump!

Stop-MotionYouTube user Raff365 has recently created a paper cut stop-motion video of the early moments from The Legend of Zelda. The stop-motion video covers Link’s early adventure, acquiring the sword, defeating Octoroks, and entering the first dungeon. It lasts just over a minute and is rather simplistic, but it is certainly a job well done. Go ahead and make the jump to watch the video.

The hoodie is available in May, just when most of North America and Europe begin entering the warmer months and leave behind the heavier clothing.

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!

Two Days Away: One Man Mini-Marathon

MasesApril 10th, 2014 by Mases

zdminimar2

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.
