Each game in the Zelda series has a unique theme song that epitomizes the qualities of that game. Skyward Sword with Ballad of the Goddess, Breath of the Wild with the Champion’s Ballad, and Link’s Awakening with Ballad of the Windfish (lots of ballads) all stand out to me as beautifully composed songs that are iconic and memorable. While I enjoy all of these, it is my opinion that they are all beaten out of the top spot by a main…

Link is a truly extraordinary man. Despite often looking like a stringbean, he’s proven time and time again that he has the strength and endurance of a well-trained athlete. BuzzFeedBlue’s Kelsey Darragh and Ned Fulmer took it upon themselves to find out just what it takes to develop Link’s adventuring skills. Donning their best Link hoodies, the pair tackles horseback riding, hang gliding, and rock climbing. This humorous video is peppered with Zelda references, so check it out! Seeing Darragh…

Hey there, everyone! I am proud to welcome you all to Music Week, a celebration of all things musical in The Legend of Zelda. I have the pleasure of kicking off the festivities with a new season of Zelda Versus, our tournament series in which you vote for the best aspects of the Zelda series. We finished our best dungeon tournament last fall, ultimately crowning the Stone Tower Temple as the greatest of the great. Now with Music Week upon…

We are kicking off music week with a very special Hyrule Compendium! As many of you may know, at the end of the week we will be revealing our top 50 Zelda songs as chosen by our staff. In this entry into the Compendium, we discuss some of the honorable mentions that didn’t quite make the cut. We also tease some of the songs that will be appearing on our list. If you are anticipating our top 50, you certainly…

UNO was one of the first card games I ever learned to play. Growing up, it was extremely popular among my family as we were always playing it at gatherings. It’s rules are simple, it allows two to ten players and rounds can last anywhere from a minute to what feels like an hour! If you’ve ever played you’ll know how it could also be called “The Destroyer of Friendships.”  Regardless of that, I’m beyond excited to say that The…

The Legend of Zelda is known for a lot of things, one of them being the promise of strange, striking or in some way warped NPC characters that you meet on your travels. From the diligent, ape-like incarnation of The Postman from Twilight Princess, a slit-eyed Potion brewer simply named Granny, or the infamously uncanny Happy Mask Salesman, these weirdos are memorable and introduced in droves. Looking back at the late Iwata’s Interviews, Iwata Asks, it turns out the show…

The stakes have risen in the newest Zelda Warfare. Not only are we adopting our classic swordless rule of engagement, we are also incorporating the “no L targeting” rule from our Forest Temple race. We are taking on the Fire Temple this time and it proves to be quite the challenge with our limitations. Come check out the fun of us taking on the Flare Dancers and other enemies without help from Navi or the Master Sword! Mases is looking…

Bayonetta first graced Nintendo consoles back in 2014 when it was re-released with the launch of Bayonetta 2 on Wii U. It blew away fans and critics with it fast paced hack and slash game play and it’s don’t care attitude. Thankfully this classic has come back for another go with new features including amiibo support, tighter framerates and sharper visuals on Nintendo Switch! When Bayonetta was originally brought over to Wii U they gave it some unique content in…

First off… let me apologize to everyone. Last week, we had a second rate Guest General Manager, Gooey Fame, come in and sign a free agent to beat Mipha. Luckily for all of us though, his choice failed and you’ll never see him again! Mipha has quietly racked up 4 wins, and is close to entering the Hall of Fame, but I, Andy Spiteri, will present her with my handpicked challenger: Bryne! A Champion who looks the part, I have…

Link has always been a swordsman. Whether he’s wielding a wooden sword, a long sword, or the fabled Master Sword, our hero feels most comfortable with a blade in his hand. But as intrinsic as swordplay is to the Zelda series and its protagonist, we’re at a point in history where certain traditions can tweaked a bit. Nothing will replace the sword from Link’s repertoire; but what would happen if he was to expand his skill set with martial arts…
