ZUThere are several aspects that can make a game great. Two of the most important elements are the game’s mechanics and character development and the Legend of Zelda series has done a great job with the mechanics and it’s had some very notable characters.

Link joins the piratesAhoy! Today it be International Talk Like A Pirate Day, where we remember the Golden Age of Piracy along with our mateys over a good mug of grog and a fine shanty. But on this fine day I would like to take you salty dogs on tour of the fine lads and lasses who sail the seas of Hyrule and beyond in search of treasure to find, cherish and bury at a later time in a different spot (which incidentally be the reason they be called sea dogs).

Apparently his “pocketing” move, meant to store projectiles and throw them back later, can completely cancel Link’s, and potentially Toon Link’s, Final Smash. The short YouTube video displaying it speaks for itself.

Check out the video after the jump. Read more…

Link is one of the most famous heros in gaming, and he has taken on so many iterations that he does not seem stale.

Join the discussion after the jump!
