Our segmented race of Ocarina of Time 3D, Zelda Warfare, continues with us making a return to the Lost Woods. The Lost Woods/Kokiri Forest area has a lot of soft soil locations for bean planting and skulltula collecting, as well as a wealth of business scrubs whose economies we must support. For now, we are only able to support a select few, which provide us with much needed Deku Nut and Stick Upgrades. We also further the mask trading sequence,…

Hello everyone! Welcome back after a week’s break to Artists of Legend! Two weeks ago, we asked you if we should change the frequency of the Artists of Legend posts and challenges. After looking at the vote results and the staff discussing it, we’ve decided to make a minor change to how this series will work. Instead of having only a week to work on artwork for our challenges, you’ll now have two weeks! We’ll still have a new challenge every…

There are many things that can clash well with each other, but none are as amazing as the combatants in a guitar battle. And the guitar battle-shaped cover we’re looking at today proves just that, as a Zelda fan takes the Song of Time from Ocarina of Time and turns it into something truly unforgettable. This ukulele/ metal cover of the Song of Time comes to us from all-around metalhead Jared Dines. What makes his cover so unique is how he produced…

Many fans can agree that Zant from Twilight Princess is one of the more interesting characters in the game. The same can’t be said though for Master Kohga from Breath of the Wild however, as he is seen an absolute joke of a villain by a large group of players. As dissimilar as these two characters are, the Zelda fan theory we’re looking at today explains how these two bad guys are related in their own unique way. A recent theory from…

When first playing Breath of the Wild the scope, beauty, and openness of the world is quite impressive and impactful as you explore everything around you. Within short order, you’ll probably come across a familiar face, or 900, if you’ve played The Wind Waker. Koroks are small forest spirits that, according to The Wind Waker, are the evolution of the Kokiri species introduced in Ocarina of Time and can be found anywhere and everywhere in Breath of the Wild. At first, these creatures can seem…

Jabu Jabu’s Belly is a pretty straightforward dungeon in Ocarina of Time. Armed with your sword, shield, slingshot, and eventually boomerang, you wouldn’t have much of a hard time getting through it. In the latest campaign of Zelda Warfare, Mases and I decided we needed to show some love to some of the items you wouldn’t normally use while inside Jabu Jabu. This created some pretty fun situations, and was one of my favorite times playing this dungeon. But it’s not all just…

The notion of Zelda having an alter ego to adopt and a new persona as a form of protection became a recurring idea in Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker through the popular Sheik and Tetra, and even Twilight Princess had scrapped designs for Sheik as well. Despite simply being alter egos for Zelda, Tetra and Sheik are among some of the strongest, most celebrated female characters in the series as a result of their personality or combat prowess. While these characters…

In the speedrunning community, Awesome Games Done Quick is something of a Superbowl. The week-long marathon, benefiting the Prevent Cancer Foundation, features runners from all around the world as they showcase the skips, glitches, and exploits that allow them to finish our favorite games as quickly as possible. This year’s event, which began yesterday and runs until Saturday, has a ton of fun in store, not the least of which being a handful of Zelda speedruns. Awesome Games Done Quick…

Ocarina of Time was among one of the first Zelda games I played on the Nintendo 64, and seeing the casting animation for Din’s Fire the first time was a really cool experience. The game incorporated the magic spells into the narrative and puzzles sparingly, but their practicality was so great that I found myself using them quite often throughout my play through, and I looked forward to seeing more variety in later installments. But while the series has expanded…

We are making our first march down Zora’s River in the newest campaign of Zelda Warfare, our Ocarina of Time 3D race. This cucco incursion has Mases and I collecting some more gold skulltulas and heart pieces, as well as us composing our very own Scarecrow’s Song. No campaign would be complete without us supporting the local economy, so we also buy and plant some magic beans. Who will be the first to be devoured by Lord Jabu Jabu? Check out…
