Colonel-MajoraSeptember 30th, 2014 by Colonel-Majora

Logo_3Ocarina of Time 2D, a 2D remake of the N64 classic, is a fan-created game that now has a playable demo on its main website. Trailers for the remake are up on YouTube, and show off some interesting things. The way that Ocarina of Time‘s gameplay is recreated is interesting, considering the game looks quite a lot like A Link to the Past, but Ocarina of Time‘s game elements still seem very responsive in it. Hit the jump to check out a bunch of videos, and watch to the end of the last video for a very interesting little hint of things to come.

Game Theory: Which Link is the most powerful?

Thomas JacobsSeptember 29th, 2014 by Thomas Jacobs

zeldaThroughout the history of the Zelda, series there have been many Links. With the addition of Hyrule Warriors we are now anywhere from 11 to 14, depending on if you count Young Link (Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask) and Adult Link (Ocarina of Time) as separate Links in addition to the non-canon Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros. incarnations. But with all of those heroes with all their different abilities, powers, and equipment, there must be one of them who stands head and shoulders above the others, right? Fortunately, Game Theory decided to tackle this difficult question in their latest video.

Watch the video after the break and see if you agree with their choice!

Red RingRings make for handy magic items: they’re small, lightweight and are easy to carry in addition to your other magical gear. Finding magic rings in the Zelda games is always useful to either continue in the game, make Link tough enough to more easily survive the later dungeons or even give him a variety of bonuses. But they have only appeared in 2D games, with the last time being The Minish Cap. Perhaps it is time for them to make their return? Read more after the break!

Thoughts on Ghirahim

Mark OlsonSeptember 26th, 2014 by Mark Olson

GhirahimThough it gets a lot of hate nowadays, Skyward Sword is by no means the worst that the Zelda series has to offer. Sure, the game was linear, sure, the overworld was about as interesting as your AP American Government class, and sure, the game was incredibly padded. However, there are a couple of redeeming qualities to the game. One that I find incredibly interesting is Ghirahim.

Gossip Stone: Does Stealth Belong in Zelda Games?

Colonel-MajoraSeptember 25th, 2014 by Colonel-Majora

480px-lozww_forsaken_fortress1A decent amount of stealth has been featured in the Zelda series. It has always been used in very short instances, but the sneaky moments have remained memorable. Most games that use this style have done it differently, so which way is good enough to use again, if any? Should future Zelda games have elements of stealth? Join the discussion after the jump!

SS SlingshotOne of the recurring items in the Zelda series is the Slingshot: a handheld device Link often obtains early in the games it is in. Unfortunately for every game it appears in, it’s typically obtained before the Bow; the Bow greatly outshines the Slingshot with improved range, damage and projectiles it could carry. Is there a place for the Slingshot alongside the bow, or is it an outdated piece of equipment that should be retired in favor of the bow? Read more after the break!
