80’s Synthesizer Zelda’s Lullaby

Alexis AndersonNovember 26th, 2014 by Alexis Anderson

imageThe synthesizer reached the peak of its popularity in the 80’s, but is currently coming back into style with its emphasis in alternative bands such as Radiohead and Arcade Fire. With its prevalence increasing, it was only a matter of time before a talented gamer resolved to make synthesized covers of classic video game music titles. Youtube musician Ace Waters of MotiveMakesaMan Music did just that, and recently recreated “Zelda’s Lullaby” from Ocarina of Time in honor of Peanut Butter Gamer’s Zelda Month. This version of the song is a whole new experience, and one that no Zelda fan should miss out on for any reason. Click the jump and prepare to be awakened by this fantastic Lullaby. Read more…


Game Theory: What does the Longshot do to Link?

Thomas JacobsNovember 26th, 2014 by Thomas Jacobs

LongshotOver the course of his adventures Link has used many different kinds of weapons and items to help him defeat evil. Swords, bows, boomerangs, bombs: you name it.  A Link to the Past introduced a new item to both aid in Link’s mobility while serving as a weapon: the Hookshot. The Hookshot has gone through various different iterations to do different things. Today Game Theory takes a look at that last iteration of the item and does the math: what would happen in real life if Link were to shoot his Longshot into a target and grapple towards it? Watch the video after the break and get a whole new dose of respect for the Hero of Time!

Majora’s Mask 3D is coming out next year, and many of us remember the original as the best Zelda ever, not only because of its own greatness, but also the way it compares and contrasts with its prequel, Ocarina of Time. Without that connection to the previous N64 game, it may not be see in such a great light. That being said, how much of a connection should a new Zelda game have with its predecessors? Could elements of a previous game, or being a full-on sequel make that much of a difference? Join the discussion after the jump!

Link_Wearing_Zora_Armor The Legend of Zelda series has shown our favorite protagonist obtaining and wearing a few different variations of tunics and armors, sometimes used to access new areas, others to breathe underwater or experience invulnerability in exchange for cold hard Rupees. Some reduce damage intake, and some are there just as a joke for your second playthrough. My question is this: will tunics and armors continue to influence future Zelda games to come, and what sort of new quirks could these clothes bring to new areas and dungeons? Hit the jump to see a couple ideas, and to join the discussion!

AgahnimZelda has one big baddie who tends to rule them all: Ganon. Sometimes he does this quite literally. It isn’t uncommon to play through a Zelda game only to find out in the last act that the villain you were fighting the whole time was just a puppet in Ganon’s evil schemes, for better or for worse.
