Welcome back to the Cast! It’s Side Quest week over here at Zelda Dungeon, so of course that means this show is all about our favorite optional activities in the Zelda series. Eventide Island, Kinstones, the Item Check girl, and of course, Anju and Kafei. It’s all here! We of course want to know what your favorite side quests are, so let us know! This is a fun episode you won’t want to miss, and get ready because next week…

It’s Q&A time this week as Andy and Taylor go ahead and answer 20 Debatable questions. Do Shrines do enough to replace dungeons? What if there were a female version of Ganondorf? What song should would we choose to replace the main theme if we had to pick? Is it too late for Impa in Smash? Why does Andy think the Zelda timeline is so lame!? We have all this, plus some quick thoughts on Detective Pikachu! Come in and…

Andy makes a triumphant return to the show this week and doesn’t waste any time getting down to business, asking where the heck Cadence of Hyrule has been since it’s announcement and taking Taylor through a list of dream Zelda spinoffs. Pikmin with Cucco’s? Assassin’s Creed with Sheikah? YES PLEASE! As if that wasn’t enough, to celebrate the Game Boy’s 30th birthday, the lads count down their top ten OG GB games ever. Link’s Awakening, Pokemon, Metroid II, and more!…

After (un)comfortably deep diving into Tingle’s Rosey Rupeeland last week, Andy decided to briefly escape the country, so Taylor sets out and finds Kevin to help him discuss today’s topics. Breath of the Wild has continued its inexorable ride with a VR element using Nintendo Labo while Kevin and Taylor debate whether VR is a good idea. The game also gets an update that improves the load time of Shrines, which of course leads to the Champions’ thinking about speedrunning! It…

Happy Easter weekend everyone! We hope you guys ate your weight in chocolate eggs and turkey! We spent a lot of our time over the weekend taking Super Smash Bros’ newest playable fighter, Joker, for a spin! Do we like him? Who’s he play like? What about his stage? We break it all down AND THEN deliver a deep dive all into the fabled game itself… TINGLE’S ROSY RUPEELAND! Yes, Andy has finally finished it (with 100% completion to boot!)…

Video game movies are usually pretty terrible. So terrible in fact, I have another podcast totally dedicated to them. But they don’t have to be – not when you’ve got the guys from Virtual Theater on the case! Yessir, Gooey Fame is back on the Cast to lend his expertise to the show discussing how to make a Zelda movie that doesn’t suck! What kind of tone should this movie go for? Should the costumes be changed?  Does Link talk?…

Helloooo and welcome to another fun episode of the Cast! This week, we play a fun game of “Would You Rather?” centered all around Zelda! Would you rather have more frequent releases that are good, or would you rather have to wait for a great one? Would you rather have Naughty Dog or Insomniac develop a Zelda game? Would you rather each new Link start from scratch and experience the hero’s journey, or harness all of the memories and experience…

The Champions’ are joined by special guest Rod Lloyd this week to talk about the totally out-of-left-field Cadence of Hyrule announcement, what Rod thought of Crypt of the Necrodancer, what this could mean for the future of Nintendo and Indie Devs, and for a bit of fun, dream up their perfect pairings of Indie Developers and which Nintendo series they would like to see them create a game in! We’ve got a news round up and a story about Andy’s…

Can you believe it’s been an entire year of The Champions’ Cast? In a very special show, Andy and Taylor reflect back on the show’s beginnings and give thanks to everyone who helped it along the way before diving into a deep conversation about their favorite game: Ocarina of Time! The fellas rank all the dungeons in the game, plus all the mini dungeons, and even both the N64 and 3DS version of the Water Temple for good measure! Plus,…

If you didn’t already know, the Champions’ Cast is all about cheap plugs, and this week we take it to the extreme: we play a game based off our Musical March Madness tournament (which if you haven’t checked it out, A) it’s going on right now, and B) WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?). We take the bracket and pick our own winners… with some back and forth negotiations in there to determine some winners and losers. It was a fun…
