Gossip Stone: Should There Be More Bosses That Are Not Just Giant Monsters?

Ganondorf_(Hyrule_Warriors)I think that it is fair to say that Zelda is o stranger to having fights with larger-than-life, hulking monsters for bosses at the end of its dungeons. It is almost always expected that you will find a great, big monster to take down for the next magic artifact or whatever. What is not expected, and actually a nice chage of pace, is normal-sized, human-like villains that challenge you to a duel to the death. They have a certain something to them that makes for, often, a much cooler fight.

Collection Spotlight: The Modern Collector

1Greetings fellow Zelda fans! My name is Ty and I am just now 18. I am quite the committed collector, and my collection is getting quite large. My love for Zelda started back in 6th grade with The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. It was the first Zelda game I had ever played and I instantly fell in love. However, I soon found eBay and got myself the Ocarina of Time Master Quest and that would be the first game I beat.

I really just liked the games at first and would play them when I had the chance. But I had the opportunity to play Majora’s Mask in 8th grade and that instantly became my favorite game of all time, and still is to this day. After I beat Majora’s Mask I just started buying and collecting everything and anything Zelda and I have been collecting for 6 years now.
But since I own every Zelda game and almost every version of every Zelda game (and yes, I have beat them all), it is harder and harder to add to my collection.

Gossip Stone: Should the Four Sword Return?

Four-Swords-Adventures-Artwork As most Zelda fans know, Four Swords and Four Swords Adventures are not typical Zelda games. Neither contain an overworld, both are multiplayer, and wouldn’t you know Link splits into four. The emphasis on multiplayer mechanics in these games shifted focus away from compelling story lines which made them feel less welcome in the series. But, technology has come a long way since 2004 and we’ve yet to see another multiplayer Zelda. With the recent outcry for Vaati to return to the series, there is reason to cry for a return of the Four Sword.

Why Link Cannot Draw His Sword From His Back: An Illustrated Guide

Sword on Back OpeningFor anyone who has played a 3D Zelda game it is a familiar sight: as you watch Link run around you see his shield on his back, and his sword hilt sticking out on one side. If you have to haul a sword around on long trips it is a good way to carry one, but is it the best way to use it on the battlefield? A number of inventive people have managed to rip the models from various Zelda games and put them into Garry’s Mod, a physics sandbox that runs on Valve’s Source Engine. By messing with the models I have managed to make a demonstration just how difficult drawing a sword from his back would be for Link. Watch my findings after the break!

1980’s Synthesizer Style Remix of “Gerudo Valley”

gvWe’ve all got our list of favourite tracks from the Zelda series and with how good the soundtracks are, it’s not surprising the songs regularly get remixed by fans. I mentioned a rather long time ago that I tend to avoid remixes because they rarely turn out as good as the original track. Of course there are a few that take a great tune and manage to make it even better. Such is the case with YouTuber MajorLeagueWobs/Holder’s 1980’s techno remix of “Gerudo Valley” from Ocarina of Time. Hear the remix after the jump!
