Conceptually, the Yiga Clan is really interesting. The idea of the Sheikah having a schism, and the portion deciding to split off pledging themselves to help Calamity Ganon feels like it should lend itself to a lot of interesting plot points. Naturally I was really excited to see what role they would play in the greater scheme of Breath of the Wild when I was doing my first playthrough of the game. Sadly, I ended up being disappointed because they did…

Magic: The Gathering is one of the most popular games in the world. The long-running table-top card game, which started in 1993, has a huge global community that show out for every new expansion and product launch. One of the beauties of MTG lies is the game’s flexibility. With almost thirty years worth of cards, players can build decks based around any number of ideas and themes. This makes deck-making a manifestation of a player’s personality, playstyles, and interests. Players…

There are myriad ways to complete a game. From just plain getting to the end credits, all the way to taking zero damage while blindfolded. Me, I’m somewhere between those points on the spectrum. Zelda games usually captivate me to the point that I need to uncover every secret and break every pot. But not always. However, even among the Zelda titles where I don’t shoot for 100% completion, there’s one side quest I will always finish: Filling out two…

Chapter One: Into the Crypt There are ghosts down here. Dark spirits and monsters. Forgotten battles of the dead and the damned. Silence that echoes through barren halls and stilled hearts. Down here, we are buried. Down here, we are lost. Down here, we cannot speak. Souls of history that the kings of annals would rather forget, condemned to fight as demons and malice only written in tales you tell to your children, dark tales of history. We fought you….

Some of the most compelling aspects of the Zelda series for me are the storytelling and world building. Ever since the first game in 1986, Zelda games have been presented with varying amounts of the legend behind it. From the opening crawl in the original The Legend of Zelda to the many ruins in Breath of the Wild, there’s no shortage of context for creating a full experience for the player. A lot of Zelda games give specific lore for…

The content team at TerminalMontage is at it again with their hilarious, exciting, and completely insane retelling of Ocarina of Time on their YouTube channel. Having previously released their renditions of Link’s childhood and his escapades in the Forest Temple, their newest video shows his journey through the Fire Temple — complete with bloodthirsty Cuccos, third-degree burns, and endless over-the-top screaming and fire traps. What I love most about TerminalMontage’s work on this project is that it encapsulates the classic…

One of the most intriguing discussion topics the Zelda series has brought to us is its consistency. Specifically in this case, the lack thereof. While some aspects of the Zelda series are consistent, it doesn’t take a well-seasoned fan to see that the overworld maps among the games don’t really “line up” with each other. Of course, Nintendo wants each Zelda experience to be something unique across each individual title, and reusing an entire main game map isn’t something game…

Whether you’re at a party or don’t want to use a TV, the Nintendo Switch’s tabletop mode is a saving grace for many scenarios. Unfortunately, battery life is an issue when the Switch isn’t docked, and the need to charge can be bothersome with the charge port located on the system’s underside — unless someone has a PlayStand, of course. Nintendo Switch PlayStand accessories are great for holding the Switch up for tabletop mode. Not only do they allow for…
