Hello again! We’re back again, and the holidays are coming up soon, so be prepared for some Zelda-themed holiday challenges starting soon! But for now, things are sticking to the norm, so let’s get to it! Last Week’s Challenge Last week,  we asked you to create art of Link being trained by the Hero’s Shade from Twilight Princess. There’s only one piece of art this week, which isn’t a submission, but it’s still some terrific work! By Radiant on DeviantArt I’m…

Chemistry is a un-quantifiable thing when it comes to romance. You can’t really describe what it is, or point out any concrete signs of it – it’s just one of those things that you either know is there or isn’t. While The Legend of Zelda series would never be described as a romantically inclined series, most games at least offer Link one or more female characters in the game for him to interact with. Unfortunately, Twilight Princess offers up easily…

We are back with another campaign in Zelda Warfare! This time around, Mases and I are racing through the Lost Woods as we try to open the entrance to Dodongo’s Cavern. We battle a Wolfos with only a Deku Stick, traverse the Sacred Forest Meadow without using our shield, and jam out with some Skull Kids. The Goron vase also proves to be a deadly foe. If you enjoyed this campaign, you can join us over on our Youtube channel for…

Much ado has been made in the Zelda community regarding the new Master Cycle Zero in The Champions’ Ballad. Link’s new motorcycle definitely made an impression when it was first unveiled, and a handful of fans have so far shared about how fun it is to ride the thing around. But as the latest DLC pack adds a vehicle so similar to something we’d see in modern society, some fans have begun to question whether or not the Zelda series…

A Link Between Worlds is the sequel to a Link to the Past and was released over twenty years after the original game came out. Despite the considerable time gap between release dates, A Link Between Worlds was met with positive reviews, carving its own path as a unique installment with new, fun gameplay features while having elements of its classic predecessor, and I enjoyed the game immensely as a result. The Wall Merging mechanic is really fun and easily…

Certainly no Zelda game is ever a walk in the park for Link. Every Legend of Zelda game features the hero saving the world from impending destruction. Sometimes though, along the way, the challenges he must go up against can seem more difficult than others both physically and mentally. This has lead to many discussions over which Link really had it the worst. We tried to get to the bottom of it in the newest episode of the Zelda Challenge. Kevin and I both tried…

Happy Monday, everyone! A lot has happened between last week’s Caption Contest and now. Zelda Informer and Zelda Dungeon merged together, The Champions’ Ballad was finally released, and… a gosh-dang motorcycle was added to Breath of the Wild! The Master Cycle Zero was the center of attention last week, as Link can finally boulder across the countryside in his very own chopper. How could we not caption that thing?! Last Week’s Contest: Link joined the Fraternity of Shirtless Lizard Men…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a masterclass experience, a wonder of game design, and a joyous form of absolute freedom. It is a masterpiece, plain and simple, and deserving of every award it’s won so far and will surely continue to win. As a story though, Breath of the Wild is the total opposite. Far too often, it simply tells instead of shows, breaking the golden rule of storytelling. There are glaring plot holes, and some…

Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons are without question two of the most underrated Zelda games in the franchise. After their simultaneous release for the Gameboy in the early 2000s, these games were not held in high regard. Despite the fact that they are now available on the Nintendo Virtual Console for the 3DS system family, these games have not been widely played by long-time fans of the Legend of Zelda, having been overshadowed by the more popular 3D…

During our annual ranking of the Best Zelda’s Ever, we asked our users to predict where each game would finish on our aggregated list. Most, if not all, predicted that the original 8-bit classic would finish a lot higher than it actually did. A common sense among our staff (especially younger ones) was that the game just didn’t compare to it’s modern brothers. There’s probably an element of truth to that; the game is 31 years old after all. But…
