The terms “Zelda-like” and “Zelda-clone” have been floating around the internet for years. Both terms seem to offer an easy way to explain what a game is and how it plays (with varying levels of positivity and negativity attached to each word). But are these terms actually useful/valuable for those covering the game, along who are looking for new game to play? While some games emulate the world design or structure of Zelda, these games might have radically different combat….

Cadence of Hyrule, the new rhythm based game themed after Crypt of the Necrodancer dropped earlier this year! It’s a fun Zelda spin-off set to an amazing soundtrack and fun rhythmic dungeons to play through! The storyline takes you through four dungeons and two final bosses, but which is the best of the best? My personal favorite is Gleeokenspiel! I think Gleeokenspiel is the most fun of all the bosses that you encounter in the entire game. It’s not an easy…

The CD-i games have been a longstanding joke of the Zelda series. In fact, several Zelda memes originated from them. Before I spent some time with this group of proud and true Zelda fans, it seemed that alot of the discussions I’ve ever been a part of when it came to these games had been largely negative. However, I completely disagree with those negative views, and I don’t think Nintendo realizes that these games are actually pure gold. Let’s say Nintendo decides to release these…

Though The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been out for over two years now, I find myself going back to it from time to time, and I’m sure many of you do as well. Yet, each time, there are certain things that I find I can’t bring myself to do or things that I try to avoid doing if I can. So it got me wondering, what are some things that you actively try to avoid doing when playing…

The choices in characters, karts, and tracks to race your friends in Mario Kart has greatly expanded over the years. We’re at the point now that even Link is giving Mario a run for his money on the Master Cycle Zero. I imagine we’re pretty set when it comes to Mario Kart for a few more years. However, when the next one is inevitably released, would you like to see the Zelda series continue to have a presence? Or how…

The land of Hyrule faced a terrifying disaster known as Calamity Ganon 100 years prior to the start of Breath of the Wild. In a song of legend sung to us by Kass, we learn that the Calamity had been a problem that plagued the land over 10,000 years before, and had been predicted to appear again. As we play through the events of Breath of the Wild we learn the tale of Link’s lost memories from 100 years ago….

It’s not a well-kept secret that one of the hottest games of the year right now is Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and it’s not without reason. The game is without question a masterpiece in tactical combat, story development, and character interaction. But that last one is perhaps the most fulfilling of any Fire Emblem game. The question today though, is how or what would this character bonding aspect look like in a Zelda game? From accomplishing side-quests to boost support…

We see Zelda use the power of the Triforce in Breath of the Wild when the time came to seal Calamity Ganon away for 100 years. The Triforce has typically played a pivotal part in Zelda games, but it only briefly appears in Breath of the Wild, and isn’t even mentioned once. I don’t have any idea why, but I would like to think that the Triforce will play a larger part in the Breath of the Wild sequel, and…

It seems like since Breath of the Wild‘s release, many games that have come afterward were influenced by it. I remember thinking Mulaka looked a lot like Breath of the Wild. Some other games that drew my attention recently by looking similar to Breath of the Wild have been Decay of Logos, Gods and Monsters, and of course Genshin Impact. The latter game has been heavily compared to Breath of the Wild, to the point that it’s even being called…

Theories have been swirling like the green text from the trailer of Breath of the Wild 2, and I’m here to submit a new one. Did the Ancient Sheikah seal Ganondorf? We know that Ganondorf is the source of the malice pouring from his decaying body, but the big question is, “How did he get there?” Upon analysis of the trailer and pictures of the body, it’s obvious that Ganondorf has been mummified. The mummification looks very much like the…
