Gossip Stone: Why Do You Think a Love Affair Between Link and Zelda Has Never Truly Evolved?

UntitledCharacter shipping will likely always be a trend in any form of media, but Zelda, being a highly popular series with a male and female pair of protagonists, is a prime candidate for fan-created love affairs. As for Nintendo’s thoughts on this topic, the river is running rather dry, so to speak. Sure, there is a surprising number of female characters as compared to male ones, several of which have hit on our favorite green-clad manly man, but it is rather odd that for almost three decades, Nintendo has not had more than a small hint of a relationship between the hero and the princess, the ones who have always been brought together by destiny, quite literally. Why is this, and should it even ever actually happen?

The most important years of a young adults life is the teen years. Outgrowing the fantasies of childhood and accepting the true wonders of the world is an essential part of human experience. But there are those who don’t get to enjoy the transition. They are forced to focus on other, more important things. Through circumstances out of their control, they grow up too fast, and end up sacrificing their own childhoods for the sake of others. Such is the story of Sheik; born of exile, and raise in secrecy. Sheik’s mission in life was simple: to save the land she endangered. To right her wrong. Music and friends and self discovery were going to have to wait.

Zelda Theory: Songs of the Undead

Sharp and Elder by ABlume
Sharp and Flat by ABlume

There are a few songs between Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask that some players don’t consider as much more than what they seem to be. The Sun’s Song is as it sounds; it changes night to day and vice versa, whereas The Song of Storms makes it rain and drains the well in Kakariko Village in order for our hero to continue on his journey to defeat Ganondorf. However, these songs and a couple others involving the spirits of the Zelda universe may have a deeper role than players have always initially thought. Make the jump to here VortexxyGaming’s theory on the true role of these otherwise seemingly meaningless Zelda tunes.

Gossip Stone: Which Was Link’s Coolest Transformation?

Hello everybody, and welcome to today’s edition of Gossip Stone! This time around, I want to talk about Link’s transformations throughout the series, three in particular. The three I’m talking about are the painting, the wolf and ALL the masks. These three transformations really added something special to their respective games, and they really got their time to shine in puzzles. There were some areas you could only reach by becoming a painting in A Link Between Worlds. You could use your enhanced sense of smell as a wolf to locate hidden objects in Twilight Princess. You had to use different masks in different areas to accomplish many tasks that would be impossible without them. So now that all that stuff is out of the way, let’s move on! Read more…
