“It’s Dangerous To Go Alone” A Zelda Inspired Marriage Proposal

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 1.45.48 PMIts hard to find the right player #2, the person that will heal you when you need it most, or the person that will beat you to a pulp but yet still love you anyway. It would seem as if in Chattanooga, Tennessee Josh Spurgin has found that special someone to make sure that all his video game adventures are played with the missing piece of his heart container. Josh and his girlfriend spend their time playing many video games including The Legend of Zelda, so when it came time to pop the question Josh felt inspired to write a song based on their many gaming adventures as his marriage proposal. The special song was captured on video during an open mic night at Granfalloon Coffee Shop, and definitely captures the “it’s dangerous to go alone” quote in a whole new light… I hope she says yes!

Gossip Stone: At What Point on the Timeline Should a Future Zelda Game Take Place?

hyrule_historia_preview-81Nintendo has made many very dramatic decisions regarding their more popular series, but few trump the decision to reveal their three-path timeline in Hyrule Historia. Fans from all over started supporting, denying, and theorizing on the newly made-official timeline, and while several series-wide questions were answered, many more arose, one of which being where future Zelda games may fall. With Zelda titles so often appearing earlier and earlier in the series history, and three seperate branches in the later half, who knows where new games may fall?

Nintendo Wants Zelda U To Give Fans The “Best Zelda Experience”

Zelda002E3 came and went this year with no new information about Zelda for the Wii U. During an interview with IGN, Reggie Fils-Aime tried to quell fans fears by sharing that although they chose not to show off any new footage it was only because they wanted to focus on what would release in the near future. Im not sure that it had the desired effect, as most fans are still quite skeptical as to when we will actually see the title’s release. Their has even been some speculation that it won’t be releasing for the Wii U at all, but on the upcoming NX console. Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Nintendo, Scott Moffit sat down with iDigitalTimes to discuss a few things about a couple of heavily requested titles and Zelda U was one of them. Although no specifics about the release date of the game was given, it would seem as if Zelda U is not just at the forefront of fans minds but Nintendo as well.

Gossip Stone: Should Heavily Themed Dungeons Remain a Part of the Zelda Series?

wt In games like Ocarina of Time, designating a specific element to each dungeon made perfect sense because each corresponded to a Sage of said element. In many Zelda games a similar pattern is followed, either by having the player collect element specific items within the temples or placing them in provinces that bear the same elemental traits as the dungeon residing in it. This made receiving and using specific weapons in each temple viable, but with a new age of nonlinear open world Zelda games dawning, can and should this gimmick remain a staple of the series?

ZD Top 5 – Masks in Majora’s Mask

Get-Fierce-Deity's-Mask-on-Majora's-Mask-Step-1Bullet11 Majora’s Mask has turned into the fan-favorite Zelda game in recent years, and it isn’t hard to see why. Even though I’m not one who reveres the game to the extent of seeing it as a sacred item, I can respect both its gameplay and plot themes. Take for instance one of the game’s primary mechanics, the masks in Majora’s Mask are incredibly creative and well-implemented. Therefore, on this week’s ZD Top, we had our staff members count down their favorite masks with one small catch: no transformation masks.

As per usual, feel free to leave your personal lists in the comments!

Ocarina Of Time Dominates Wii U eShop Charts For Third Week In A Row

Ocarina of Time LogoThe Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time released on the Wii U eShop in North America on July 2nd, and has been dominating the charts ever since. The title has now seen its third week in a row of landing in the number one spot on the Wii U eShop sales chart. To land in the top spot Ocarina of Time has had to beat out several other classic Nintendo titles as well as the hot new release, Splatoon. This is pretty spectacular considering this title originally launched on the N64 back in November of 1998, thats almost 17 years ago! For me that is exactly what has always made The Legend of Zelda series so amazing, the games have truly stood up to the test of time. Do you think we will see Ocarina of Time in the top spot next week?
