A Link to the Past Comic Photo Gallery

Viz-Media-A-Link-to-the-Past In case some of you Zelda fans weren’t aware, earlier this week Viz Media released the new publication of  A Link to the Past comic that had originally appeared in Nintendo Power, over the span of a few month back in 1992. A few of us crazed fans here on the ZD staff already have our hands on it, and soon we’ll be discussing our opinions on the comic during one of our future ZD Talks. To gear up for that- and to make up for the absence of this week’s ZD Gallery piece- I’m going to take you through some of my favorite panels from the comic.

16 things wrong with A Link to the Past

Angry CuccosJosh M, owner of the channel Really Freakin’ Clever is taking a look at yet another Zelda game and the things he calls tongue-in-cheek “wrong” with it. Starting way back in april of 2013 with the video 64 Things Wrong with Ocarina of Time, he turned the affectionate parody into an entire series. Normally the channel does longer videos, but because Josh will be moving soon he could not make the full 64 things wrong with A Link to the Past. So instead he cut it down to a quarter of the normal length,  also because ALttP is a 16-bit game.

Dark World Theme Played on Unconventional Instruments

Dark World We’ve been featuring a lot of different musical covers here on Zelda Dungeon, but I don’t think we’ve ever heard anything quite like this before. Imagine what the Dark World theme from A Link to the Past would sound like played on instruments that you may not have considered instruments before. Like maybe a 3D printer, or what about an old floppy drive? I know, some of you guys are wondering what the heck a floppy drive is, or wondering how it’s possible to play music on machinery that is used for something entirely different. Trust me, you just have to hear it to understand.

Gossip Stone: Which Zelda Title Has The Best Soundtrack?

zelda-screenshotOne thing that’s usually accounted for in a game is its soundtrack. Depending on its quality, that may improve thoughts/opinions of the title. It’s a huge part of the game, and will hardly go unnoticed. There are some that are good, and some that are bad- it all depends on the effort given and the composer in-charge. The Legend of Zelda has had quite a few games, and their soundtracks are pretty hard to overlook. That’s why I’m going to talk about the game’s music, and maybe even get opinions on which Zelda title has the best soundtrack. Hit the jump to tune in!

The_Legend_of_Zelda_A_Link_to_the_Past_SNES_Game_CoverToday, the 13th of April marks the Anniversary of the release of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past in the United States. This fact has left me thinking all day, and asking myself one question. How many Zelda fans have never played this title?

When this game was released it literally set the standard for so many others to follow, it was a huge success from the moment of its launch and brought Nintendo much critical acclaim. For some, this game could even be classified as the greatest game of all time.

After so much time has passed and the accessibility of this title, how many of you have yet to play?

Gossip Stone: What Is Your Definition of a Zelda Item?

link-itemsBeing a life-long Zelda fan can sometimes be difficult.  To have an interest in a puzzle solving adventure game, it’s ironic that I find myself often having trouble solving one puzzle in particular: Which Zelda is my favorite? With nearly 20 years of personal experience with the franchise and having played all 17 of the canonical games, it’s hard to really know which game is my favorite. My go-to deciding factor is usually the amount of the items found within the game.  Because of this, A Link to the Past had always held the highest position in my mind as it seemed to have the largest number of items.  However, once I started really looking at the items themselves, I found it harder and harder to determine what really counted as an “item”. So what exactly is a “Zelda item”?
