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…

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…

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…

With past installments like Wind Waker and Twilight Princess receiving HD remasters over the last few years, I think it only makes sense for Skyward Sword to be considered next. At the time, the graphics looked good, but being barred by the Wii’s 720 graphic limitations causes the game to look a little blurry these days, despite its gorgeous aesthetic and colors. Then the next biggest question for a Skyward Sword remake is, of course, the motion controls. Generally speaking,…

With the sudden drop of the Champions’ Ballad DLC comes a slew of new content, features, quests and toys to tinker with. One of these is the hallowed One-Hit Obliterator. A true double-edged sword (sort of), it grants Link the ability to decimate anything with a single swipe, at the cost of any foe able to do the same. Aglow with energy and adorned with sacred talismans, this mystic relic forces you to get close and personal with entire camps…

The Game Awards are broadcasting tonight, and I believe we’re all on the edge of our seats, excited to hear what is to come for The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and beyond. Last year, we were given a sneak peek at the gameplay for one of Breath of the Wild‘s shrine quests. We got to see not only the different enemies one could expect to face in the new game, but also the different tactics and options available for…

With all of the theories revolving around Breath of the Wild and its unclear placement in the timeline, I wanted to step back and think about the timeline as a whole. As it stands, Hyrule Historia has confirmed that the timeline is split into three separate ages. This on its own raises questions and problems for me, but seeing as how the book is canon, I won’t argue there. However, there are some interesting theories that have popped up lately…

The music of The Legend of Zelda has always been stylistically diverse. Over the course of the series, we’ve seen soundtracks explore orchestral scores, Western themes, tribal beats, guitar-driven rock, and even electronic rhythms. It seems that the many talented composers that have worked on the franchise have always found ways to broaden Zelda‘s musical horizons, finding unique styles of music to fit each new situation. But for all we’ve heard so far, there are still genres that have not…
