Original Majora’s Mask Any% Speedrun World Record Broken

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 2.58.21 PMThe original Majora’s Mask is now not to be left out of the Any% Speedrun World Records this week. Just a few days ago we shared with you that the Any% Speedrun World Record for Majora’s Mask 3D had been broken not just once but twice in one day, and now we also have to add the original Majora’s Mask to the list. The very same day we told you about Majora’s Mask 3D, FullGrownGaming took first place on the original Majora’s Mask with a time of 1:27:03, beating the previous first place run by six seconds! The now 1st place run seemed to be almost neck and neck with the previous record holder and it wasn’t until the final moments of the boss battle that first place was solidified. Which just goes to show you that in Speedruns every mili-second counts!

To check out the 1st place run by FullGrownGaming, head past the break.

ZD Gallery: Music of the Goddesses

Tom WinterWelcome to the ZD Gallery, where each week we feature an artist and their creation(s) in tribute to the Zelda franchise. This week, we’re veering off the path of fan art and tackling a different artistic area that is highly influential in the series. Music. Covers, more specifically, and today I’ve got the perfect candidate.

YouTube user Tom Winter not only plays his own music, but also has a plethora of videogame music videos- played on his acoustic guitar- on his channel, including a few Zelda favorites. Some are done simply by him playing his guitar, but Winter also has a couple covers composed almost a cappella style by overlapping a few tracks of different parts played on the guitar to create one song.

Make the jump to see his videos and to check out our interview with him!

Anju’s Anguish – The Brilliance of Zelda’s Greatest Side Quest

anju-kafeiWhen trying to describe Majora’s Mask to a player that hasn’t played the game, you might get asked simple questions like, ‘how long is the game’, or ‘how many dungeons are there’? While these seem like rather straight forward questions, it does Majora’s Mask no justice to say that there are just four dungeons. There are a few mini-dungeons around, but some might consider the town of Clock Town a dungeon in of itself. At least that is what writer Connor Worley argues in a recent article.

Clock Town didn’t have the block-pushing puzzles and you didn’t have to flip a dungeon upside down. Instead, the town was centered around the anguish of its citizens and the Anju and Kafei quest served as this dungeons final boss.

Piece of Heart: …So Does Season

11165827_1075087582519354_144673436_n Welcome to the eleventh installment of Piece of Heart, where we look at The Legend of Zelda series through the eyes of a literary professor and examine how its literary elements enhance the gaming experience. This week’s lesson is titled “…So Does Season.” Similar to geography, the season during which a game takes place has a profound affect on the overall theme of the adventure. For instance, Winter usually denotes death and hopelessness, so the despair surrounding Queen Rutela’s death and the disappearance of her only heir was elevated in Twilight Princess by the temporary winter of the then-frozen Zora’s Domain (here we can see how geography and season act hand-in-hand).

 
Of course Spring, Summer, and Autumn are also host to their own emotional and physical associations. The season in a Zelda title can greatly reflect the mood of the game, and knowing how to spot these seasonal patterns will further aggrandize the game’s plot.
