Gossip Stone: Should There Be A Rated-M Zelda Game?

Colonel-MajoraSeptember 30th, 2014 by Colonel-Majora

Untitled
The apparent age groups targeted by each Zelda game seems to vary quite a bit throughout the series. Some are clearly meant for older people, while others take on a much more cheery and childish tone. While the latter style appears prodominant in the series, is it about time to up the maturity level and have a game meant only for older teens and adults? Or, should things stay as they are, and continue with the “E For Everyone” maturity level? Join the discussion after the jump!

Screen Shot 2014-09-29 at 4.04.01 PMNintendo’s latest New 3DS promotion not only stars Japanese singer and model Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, it also features a few fresh outfits for some familiar Nintendo characters including Link and Zelda; more or less inspired to match Kyary’s fashion.

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!
