Top 10 twists in The Legend of Zelda

KevNovember 28th, 2013 by Kev

triforceYou may remember I recently posted a video I made of my top five fun things to do in Majora’s Mask when you should be worrying about Termina. Most of you seemed to like the video and, from your suggestions of other fun things to do, there are some entertaining glitches to perform. Being able to become the Fierce Deity anywhere was a popular one and, I have to say, it does look fun so I might have to give it a try. One of the other people involved in the channel, Justin, is also a huge Legend of Zelda fan and last year we did several videos counting down our top 20 tracks from the Zelda series. Now, almost exactly a year later, we decided to do another Zelda related countdown, this time for our top 10 twists.

Hey there guys. Got your new mailbag! This week we’re going to be focusing entirely on A Link Between Worlds since its release is imminent. There might not be a mailbag next week since that would be RIGHT before the release, but we’ll see. Until then we’ve got 10 A Link Between Worlds questions, with a bit of a special focus on Ganon and Yuga, though there are plenty of other topics. Anyway, enjoy! You can watch the video here or check out the embed after the jump.

Questions and timestamps:

(00:37) – What are you looking forward to most about A Link Between Worlds?
(01:56) – Do you think Nintendo revealed too much of A Link Between Worlds before its release?
(03:10) – Do you think Lorule is just Detroit with prettier colors?
(03:22) – Besides the items in Ravio’s shop, what items do you think will return in the game?
(04:49) – Do you think A Link Between Worlds’ art style is directed towards a younger audience?
(05:42) – Do you think the Dark Triforce is real, or just a symbol?
(06:30) – What do you think about that Lorule version of Blind appearing?
(07:08) – What do you think the relation is between Ghirahim, Ganon, and Yuga?
(08:13) – What is your opinion on Ganon returning?
(09:14) – Does Yuga saying “Her Grace” say about Hilda or the possibility of an evil goddess?

Could Link be dead in Majora’s Mask?

KevNovember 14th, 2013 by Kev

MMIt seems as though most people have accepted the idea that Majora’s Mask takes place in an alternate dimension version of Hyrule which is why a lot of the characters from Ocarina of Time appear in the game. While it’s no secret I’m not particularly keen on Majora’s Mask (and, to clarify this time, I’m not saying it’s a bad game, I just think most other Zelda games are better) there are a lot of theories revolving around it, what certain aspects represent and different interpretations of what people say or do and I absolutely love finding out about all these theories. I’m a huge fan of Matt Pat and his Game Theory series (though most videos are viewed with a pinch of salt) and the latest addition to has a very interesting theory: could Link be dead in Majora’s Mask?

Screen Shot 2013-11-12 at 11.12.16 PMEiji Aonuma sure has a sense of humor. The Zelda series producer apparently filmed a short video during New York Comic Con to promote A Link Between Worlds. Having little time during the busy convention, Aonuma actually snuck out and ended up avoiding two Nintendo of America employees. The premise might be a little goofy, but it’s certainly funny to see Aonuma running through New York City, all while making homages to A Hard Day’s Night, the first film made by The Beatles in 1964. Hit the jump to view the video and Mr. Aonuma’s wackiness!

Axle the BeastNovember 7th, 2013 by Axle the Beast

Hey there guys, new mailbag! This time around it looks like our rental shop-owning friend Ravio is a major focus of the questions, and subsequently Majora’s Mask since it seems to appear in his shop. There’s also some stuff about Ganon and Zelda villains in general, among some other questions. 11 questions in all!

(06:16) – DO YOU THINK THAT A LINK BETWEEN WORLDS WILL HAVE A DUNGEON CREATOR?
(06:39) – How would you feel if Zelda had a brother or sister in the story of the next game?

VHS_cassette_tape_04For those of us who are old enough to know what VHS tapes are, they were once the main medium used for watching movies and for recording videos on camcorders and VCR players. Their reign came to an end once DVDs took over and now the only way to obtain VHS tapes is through the internet or at garage and yard sales as well as flea markets.

A website called Backloggery recently created some ‘How-to’ videos which detail ways of beating some recently released games. One of which happens to be The Wind Waker HD.

For those who know what VHS tapes are, prepare for a wave of nostalgia after the jump!

54658Direct from GameXplain we now have another new video showing off some of the gameplay from A Link Between Worlds. This time the familiar turtle rock dungeon that many might remember from A Link to the Past. The quality might be a bit lower than normal since this is taken straight from the player’s hands but we do get an excellent look at some of the traps within the dungeon and see that it still maintains the same fire/ice theme it originally had from the first appearance.

Curiosity Shop #133: Zelda Dungeon Mailbag

Axle the BeastOctober 31st, 2013 by Axle the Beast

Hey there guys! No special Halloween mailbag this time I’m afraid, just a normal one… unless you count having 13 questions and it being 13 minutes long as spoooooooky! Hey, it’s something!

Hope it’s not too long! Enjoy! You can watch the video here or check out the embed after the jump.

Questions and timestamps:

(00:40) – Why is Lorule a backwards Hyrule? Is Nintendo running out of ideas?
(01:30) – Do you think that Lorule is a ripoff of the Termina idea?
(02:30) – Where in the timeline will A Link Between Worlds take place?
(03:10) – Why does Link in A Link Between Worlds have the Power Bracelet, not the Power Glove?
(04:03) – Do you think that Lorule will have a Dark Link who’s cowardly like Groose or Linebeck?
(05:27) – If A Link Between Worlds does well, do you think Nintendo will never return to linearity?
(06:25) – What do you think the “Gap between dimensions” mentioned in Ocarina of Time is?
(06:59) – If you wished on the Triforce with TWO of the pieces in balance, would you get two?
(07:40) – If Link were to put on Majora’s Mask and could control it, what would its abilities be?
(08:31) – Do you think Zelda will ever have another air-based flying race?
(09:47) – What would you think of a Zelda game with TWO villains who fight each other too?
(10:53) – How would you feel if there was a Zelda game with an older Link, maybe 40 years old?
(12:05) – Where do you think Princess Zelda gets her hair and nails done?
