The Second ‘Annual’ Zelda Dungeon One Man Mini-Marathon

One-Man-MarathonLast April here at Zelda Dungeon I hosted the first One Man Mini Marathon. This surmounted to me playing through, The Legend of Zelda, The Adventure of Link, A Link to the Past, Link’s Awakening, and Ocarina of Time, all back-to-back, without a single break. While I had others at the event to help with commentary, (and my sanity), I was the only person to actually touch the controller during the gameplay. All in all, it ended up taking about 23-hours to complete the mini-marathon, as sleep deprevision caused my Ocarina of Time play to significantly suffer in the later half of the stream.

Throughout the marathon we raised money for a fundraiser for a local video game arcade in Chicagoland area known as the Galloping Ghost Arcade. Having raised over $2500, and I myself matching the donations, our $5000 donation has allowed the arcade to expand, and it now houses over 440 different arcade games, becoming the largest arcade in the world.

It’s now time to look ahead to the 2015 One Man Mini-Marathon and I need your help. Go ahead and make the jump to find out some more information.

Gossip Stone: The Importance of Couples in Zelda

UntitledThe Legend of Zelda: nearly 30 years of action, adventure, puzzles, mysteries, romance…wait, romance? Yes even this iconic action/adventure series has had its fair share of romance between its silent-yet-smooth operator Link and whichever NPC his current incarnation is interacting with. But while the internet forever debates whether or not Link has the hots for Ilia or Midna, there are a few cannon couples in the franchise that always seem to bring a smile to our faces. These people help foster a feeling of hope in our play experience, letting us know while we are facing some of the worse evils the Goddesses could imagine, there is always that glimmer of light that life will carry on. Let’s take a look at some of my personal favorite couples in the series after the jump. SPOILER warnings if you haven’t played the respective games these characters appear in.

Gossip Stone: Are Cuccos Interesting, or Pointless Additions to the Series?

157nb7a “Don’t be such a Cucco!” You’d probably be offended to be accused of acting like a Cucco, wouldn’t you? But perhaps you shouldn’t be. Cucco are incredibly strong creatures that are loyal and protect their own from harm; these are endearing qualities, so why the negative connotation on the name? Well, aside from the Cucco being the Zelda form of a chicken, and the phrase “Don’t be such a chicken!” being an insult in reality, Cucco can be seen as unimportant to the series. What should be thought of these small creatures?
