We Are Hiring: Looking for Writers to Help Bolster Our Guides

Volunteers-Needed

While all of our news and editorial work has shifted over to Zelda Informer, we are still upgrading and churning out game guides here at Zelda Dungeon. Earlier this year we completed our Twilight Princess Walkthrough, which is now fully upgraded to the HD version of the game. While we still have a few months to go before we begin to work on our Breath of the Wild Walkthrough, there are plenty of other guides here at the website that need some work.

We are looking for writers to help with a variety of some of our older games. In addition to writing, we are also looking for volunteers to help capture images as well as editing custom maps and artwork. If you are interested in helping out at the website, go ahead and send in an application to webmaster@zeldadungeon.net with the subject, Zelda Dungeon Volunteer Application.

Note: All positions are initially just volunteer positions. However, users that make considerable contributions are often rewarded and are also given opportunities to attend various live Nintendo, Gaming, and Zelda Dungeon related events. More information available upon request.

Also, if you live in the Chicago metropolitan area, or are willing to relocate, further opportunities are available and you can inquire about them within your application.

Minimarbanner2-A

As of this post, we are less than 28 hours away from the start of the mini-marathon! With that said, the donation widget is now live. Our goal at the mini-marathon is to raise $2500 for the Galloping Ghost Arcade. The marathon is set to last for an estimated 21-hours, but I will need your help in order to complete the marathon. Throughout the marathon, we will need to hit donation benchmarks in order for me to continue playing. With the widget now functional, we can get a head start on the initial donations. We have a minimum donation of $5, but larger donations are much appreciated. All money is going to the Galloping Ghost Arcade Fundraiser. Make the jump to check out the various donation-goal benchmarks.

An embed stream will be available here at Zelda Dungeon hours before the start of the marathon. Alternatively, you can watch our marathon directly at our Twitch Page.

Two Days Away: One Man Mini-Marathon

zdminimar2

A reminder that the One Man Mini-Marathon is set to begin on Saturday at 6am US Central Time. We will be raising money for the Galloping Ghost Arcade with a goal of reaching the $2500 donation mark. Throughout the event, I will be playing through the entirety of the Legend of Zelda, the Adventure of Link, A Link to the Past, Link’s Awakening, and Ocarina of Time. One man – five Zelda games – in 24-hours.

To be completely honest, I’m not sure I’m going to be able to do it. Part of the thrill of this event is to see whether I can actually make it through to the end. Even more important to me is raising money for the expansion of the Galloping Ghost Arcade. I will need your help in accomplishing my goal. If you missed the earlier post, check out the initial announcement for information on the marathon. To find out how you can help, make the jump.

The Zelda Dungeon One Man Mini-Marathon

zdmarathonLTTP-nowplayingEach Summer we run our annual Zelda Dungeon Marathon, but coming up soon we have something rather special. Starting at 6am US Central Time on Saturday April 12th, Zelda Dungeon will be hosting the One Man Mini-Marathon. Throughout the event, I, Mases Hagopian, have set a goal of playing through the first five Legend of Zelda titles all the way through, one after another. Starting very early in the morning, I will begin my journey with the original Legend of Zelda. This will be followed by the Adventure of Link, a Link to the Past, Link’s Awakening, and then Ocarina of Time.

The playthroughs will be complete playthroughs in the sense that I will not be using the wide variety of available glitches. Notably, such glitches are available which allow gamers to play through some of these multiple hour-games in just a matter of minutes. All in all, I’m expecting the event to last somewhere around 21 hours.

Celebrating the Zelda Dungeon Wiki!

The Adventure of Link (scroll)I know I said I was taking a break, but I had enough spare time to write up this news post to celebrate some recent milestones achieved by our very own Zelda Dungeon Wiki! Some of these announcements are a tad late due to the recent server move, but, better late than never!

On October 22nd, the Wiki celebrated it’s second birthday with a server move that should hopefully run things a little more smoothly. And as an early birthday surprise, a few weeks ago, we broke the 4,000 article mark! Currently, we now have 4,083 articles, almost 10,000 images, and over 25 million page views! And now you can share pages that you find interesting with your friends around the world with the recent addition of social media links near the bottom of the sidebar!

In closing, I should also mention that with the upcoming release of A Link Between Worlds, we could do with some more editors for the wiki so that we are able to have extensive info on characters, locations, dungeons, items, etc. as soon as possible after the game is released. If you are interested in contributing to everybody’s favorite wiki for The Legend of Zelda, just go to the wiki’s front page to find out how you can help!

Follow Mases Hagopian on Facebook

So for the last several years I’ve constantly gotten personal friend invites on Facebook from fans of Zelda Dungeon. I’ve always been a bit hesitant about accepting these as a good portion of them came from kids and teenagers. Unfortunately in the world we live in, a 25-year old like myself, having several hundred Facebook fans of 13-16 year olds is not exactly acceptable behavior. Rather, it raises eyebrows. So I’ve constantly rejected or ignored requests, in which this has led to fans messaging me, asking me why I am rejecting or ignoring their requests! A viscous cycle indeed!

In any case, I’ve found what I think is the perfect answer. I’ve gone ahead and created a public figure Facebook page for myself. This way anybody who wants to follow my Facebook activity can do so, while I can keep my personal and family side of Facebook private. At this page I will be posting about video games, along with other topics ranging from movies, to sports, or politics. Think of it as my personal Twitter page, but on Facebook. (I’m just not really a Twitter fan at the moment). So in any case, feel free to Like me at Facebook if you so choose.

With acknowledgments done, let’s move on to our main attractions! Take the jump below to see the fun of what went down at this crazy event.

This compilation medley was created by numerous people, including Alpha Volkheit, Johnny Death, Jonny Atma, Jim Cook, Matt Graham, and Caspe. It includes songs from accross the spectrum, there are some from Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, The Wind Waker, A Link to the Past, and more!

Alpha Volkheit had originally posted a fifteen minute preview on his YouTube channel with a link to download the song. A fan of the medley had taken the whole thing and put it to footage of them playing Majora’s Mask and uploaded it to YouTube, linking everything back to Alpha Volkheit. Check it out after the jump.
