Hyrule_Warriors_Link_DL_ClothesIn theory I am not a huge fan of DLC, I mean, there is a certain cynical ‘it’s all about the money’ argument to be made against it. But in practice the idea of getting new content is pretty exciting. Right now there are four Hyrule Warriors DLC packs in the works – The Master Quest Pack available right now, a Twilight Princess Pack, a Majora’s Mask Pack, and a Boss pack. The last two at least are pretty light on details about what they contain. What do you want them to have in terms of characters, costumes, and maps? Hit the jump for the discussion.

Colonel-MajoraOctober 17th, 2014 by Colonel-Majora

Bosses are some of the most judged things in Zelda nowadays. There are some parts of each game that stick in people’s minds and make the heaviest impact, and many of those things are that particular game’s bosses.

What styles and gameplay should the new upcoming Zelda bosses use? Join the discussion below! Read more…

It is an interesting thought experiment, if nothing else: a game, if you will. Hit the jump to play along.

ZD Posting GraphicThis time on the Voidcast, or at least the mid-month lead-up to the next episode, I wanted to go over the points of Hyrule Warriors that stood out as things that are worth seeing in a main series Zelda title. The game is not nearly as bad as some reviewers are making it out to be, and I’ve got a bunch of reasons why.
