The ‘True’ Majora’s Mask Ending

ConsumeNo matter what the media, be it a game, film, book or anything else, it’s very important to get the ending right. There have been a few times something has been great until the ending comes along and ruins it. Luckily the endings to The Legend of Zelda games tend to be really good but there will always be those that have ideas on how it should have ended. YouTube channel GT Cartoons has made a short animation showing the ‘true’ ending to Majora’s Mask.

Ocarina of Time Any% Speedrun is Once Again Broken

maxresdefaultMany may recall that Cosmo, popular speedrunner of Ocarina of Time with his famous world record of 18:10, once said that “Ocarina of Time is dead”, in terms of new speedrunning tricks being found. Even the now world record holder, 17-year-old skater82297, said in August that the ever-chased-after sub-18-minute run would not happen. Yet, just recently, on his Twitch stream, skater caught a 17:47 world record. This just goes to show that there is almost always room for optimization, and of course for new tricks like the Deku Nut glitch found by Jodenstone.

Be warned of a lot of swearing in the video. It was an insane moment for him, after all.

Video Review of 2-D Zelda Rip-Offs

maxresdefault (3) Zelda rip-offs, imitations, and “inspired-by” games are nothing new to the series’ fanbase, we see new ones emerge every day on a wide range of consoles and gaming outlets. This trend of pulling ideas from Zelda games has been going on since the dawn of the series, so YouTube personality Boku No Eruption compiled a list of his favorite 2-D Legend of Zelda clones in an engaging video review. He debated the merits of these Zelda “inspired” games; he gives them credit when credit is due in terms of improved aspects, but doesn’t hold back judgement when they drop-the-ball.

Super Smash Wars: A Link to the Hope

Screen Shot 2015-05-04 at 10.44.48 AMIn honor of today, May 4th, we at Zelda Dungeon wanted to show some love for our favorite series by showing off a great Zelda and Star Wars crossover. I scoured the web to find what I could say is one of my favorite crossover representations. Previously featured on Zelda Dungeon, YouTube legend, animator, and self proclaimed “professional nerd” James Farr, created a series of animations called “Super Smash Wars” combining various Nintendo IP’s with Star Wars and the end result was pretty fantastic. The video I selected as my favorite is what started it all titled, “Super Smash Wars: A Link to the Hope”.

Starfire Becomes the Hero of Hyrule in Teen Titans Go!

11186427_1072371276124318_1970332507_n It comes as no surprise that there are some real retro gamers working over at Cartoon Network, and it’s even less surprising that some of them are Zelda fans. In a recent episode of Teen Titans Go!, aptly titled “Video Game References”, Starfire gets plopped down in a clearing eerily similar to that of the original Legend of Zelda and meets an old man in a cave; she befriends him, fights off some “land squid,” and catches a lady’s “coocalacka” in exchange for a bottle. However, Starfire being Starfire, she turns the whole thing into a dance party. Hit the jump to watch the clip!

Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 7.03.59 PMIt seems as if there will always be those that will spend the time and energy to try and find ways to manipulate “glitches” in games, to beat bosses quickly, “screen warp” to jump into other areas, or even beat games in record time. A+Start, a YouTube channel has a series that does just that, called “Son of a Glitch”. The series is featured regularly and teaches you some very useful and not so useful glitches, and in this episode the focus is on Link’s Awakening.

16 things wrong with A Link to the Past

Angry CuccosJosh M, owner of the channel Really Freakin’ Clever is taking a look at yet another Zelda game and the things he calls tongue-in-cheek “wrong” with it. Starting way back in april of 2013 with the video 64 Things Wrong with Ocarina of Time, he turned the affectionate parody into an entire series. Normally the channel does longer videos, but because Josh will be moving soon he could not make the full 64 things wrong with A Link to the Past. So instead he cut it down to a quarter of the normal length,  also because ALttP is a 16-bit game.
