64 Things Wrong with Majora’s Mask, part 4

RFK Title ScreenThe YouTuber who made it big with lovingly poking fun at Ocarina of Time, Josh M. of the channel Really Freakin’ Clever, has released yet another part in his series where he looks at the things wrong with Majora’s Mask. In the first three parts he did the opening of Majora’s Mask and did the first two dungeons: Woodfall Temple and Snowhead Temple. For part four he will not yet go to the lovely Great Bay Temple yet though: instead Josh will take a shot at a number of the sidequests that Majora’s Mask is so full of.

Culture Shock: The Origins of Epona

Epona and LinkDespite appearing in only three core Zelda games as a mount (and in The Minish Cap as an NPC owned by Malon and Talon), Epona has left quite the impression on fans of The Legend of Zelda. She’s a way to move around quickly, circumvent certain obstacles and allows Link to engage in awesome battles in Twilight Princess. In the three adventures she appeared in she has been a faithful companion of Link, helping him save Hyrule and Termina, in two cases on nothing but a diet of carrots. Of all of Link’s red animal companions (Dimitri, the King of Red Lions, Link’s Loftwing) she is by far the most beloved of the bunch. But is there any real-life basis to her name and what she can do? The YouTube channel The Game Theorists take a look at this, with the latest video in their Culture Shock series. Watch the video after the break!

3D Printed Majora’s Mask

Mask3D printing has been around for a little while and there have been many stories of things that have been made using a 3D printer.

Imgur user esseff3d has made Majora’s Mask using a 3D printer and it looks very impressive.

Take a look at some of the pictures after the jump.

Zelda Oil Paintings

hWQt2Vk It takes some talent to paint something Zelda related and make it look as if it could actually be a screenshot from one of the games. That’s basically what reddit user benthunderbolt did with a few of his oil paintings that he shared with fellow Zelda fans over on Imgur. This one here is of the opening screen from Ocarina of Time. It’s so well done, and so identical to the real deal, I can almost see Link and Epona trotting over Hyrule field as if I were about to start playing!

Art Styles Over the Ages – an Analysis

Wind Waker LinkThe art style of each Zelda game can turn into a hotly debated topic; while some think that Twilight Princess has a dark and mature visual tone, others see it as dark and drab. I believe that in these debates, the most important aspects of the art are lost, namely how well they mesh with or add to the rest of the game.

“Astral Observatory” Music Video by Epic Game Music

Astral_ObservatoryA few months back, YouTube channel Epic Game Music created a music video for the “Astral Observatory” theme in Majora’s Mask. The channel focuses on all of the most loved video game music and remixes them into original pieces. They shoot their music videos in locations that help to enhance the tone of the tunes they play. In this video they take on the “Astral Observatory” theme, this is probably the only place of solace in the chaotic world we visit in Majora’s Mask and the upbeat melody bellies the impending doom outside. The guitar used in the video adds an extra layer of fun to the music and the location chosen for the video helps to transport the watcher to that beautifully colorful place in the game.

Staring Contest! [ANIMATED ZELDA PARODY]

ABSometimes things aren’t always what they seem, even the Lens of Truth has its limitations. Most Zelda games have some sort of plot twist changing the way you view what’s going on and sometimes affecting your goal. Not too long ago I posted about a video showing the ‘true’ ending to Majora’s Mask but now we have the other end of the game: the beginning. YouTuber The Alien Banana has created a short animation showing the true reason the moon was wanting to fall.

See the video after the jump.

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.
