Would You Rather: Edition XII

RabbitMarch 26th, 2014 by Rabbit

Would You Rather (compact)Welcome back to Would You Rather! This week we have another great match up for you to get into, but before we talk about that, lets take a minute to discuss the results of our last installment. After reviewing the comments it seems like more people were interested in having a fairy, as long as it wasn’t Navi or annoying in general. That said, I did see a lot of strongly opinionated posts about wanting a spirit companion instead because it is more supernatural and they could presumably have a wider variety of powers to share with you. All the answers I saw were great, and some of you used your posting names to add to the comedy of your choice, so well-played to everyone and remember that there are no wrong answers in this game. Hit the jump to check out the all new contest put together for your entertainment this week!

Fan-Made Animation of Fi’s Dance

KevMarch 24th, 2014 by Kev

FiWhile Fi hasn’t been one of the most well received characters in the Zelda franchise, she did have some decent scenes in Skyward Sword. Her final scenes is one of my favourite parts of the game. On several occasions during the events of Skyward Sword Link learns songs that allow him to enter the Silent Realm. While learning these songs, Fi dances to the music and it makes for some great scenes and YouTube user Musetrigger has created a gorgeous video of Fi dancing.
