Ever wonder what the Legend of Zelda would be like had the whole series been made in a cheesy Western style like the Hidden Village? You’ll only have to wonder for a little while longer, because we’ll soon be seeing a Spaghetti Western style Legend of Zelda tribute series from Youtube’s beatdownboogie. For a little taste of the bearers of the Triforce as cowboys and cowgirls, check out the trailer for the aptly named Hang ‘Em Hyrule film series after the jump!

Music in Zelda usually isn’t the type of thing one would headbang to or yell “DROP THE BASS” about, but thanks to Will & Tim of DubstepGutter the Ocarina of Time’s Song of Storms now has an ear-popping EDM counterpart. This version starts off with a play through of the original song, then springs to life with pounding bass and electronic turntable manipulation. Some of Link’s grunts and Navi’s chimings are sprinkled in throughout as well. The best part is, the song is free for download!

One 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!

With all of the hype surrounding Majora’s Mask 3D, many fans have been enjoying a nostalgia kick and pondering all of the components that made Majora’s Mask so enjoyable.

Samson recently arranged an extraordinary addition to the multitude of Majora’s Mask medleys out there. Samson’s orchestral rendition “The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask” elegantly takes listeners through Link’s adventure, and is a must hear for any fan of Majora’s beautiful music.

The folks over at IGN have recently posted a new video. covering the major changes we will see in the upcoming Majora’s Mask 3D. In the video they go over the three main changes they noticed since their recent hands on with the game.

A video comparing the intros of Majora’s Mask on the N64 and Majora’s Mask 3D has been uploaded to Youtube by user Master0fHyrule. The video shows scenes from the title sequences and the games’ introductions– taking us around Clock Town and then into the Forest for that fateful altercation with Skull Kid. The graphics are greatly improved, and few things have been drastically altered. You can judge for yourself whether the 3D intro imparts the same tone as the original.
Even though Navi is a faithful companion to the Hero of Time, she is considered by most to be an unhelpful nag. But we shouldn’t pick on Navi too much, she was just trying her best to be a useful guide; it’s tough to memorize the battle tactics of every enemy and keep an unruly kid from straying from his task to go fishing. Well, IntelliResponse Systems Inc. released a comical “Rehabbing with the Stars” video featuring Navi and some of the least helpful virtual response icons from the 20th century, so we could finally hear their side of the story.
