It’s a brand new year, and with that, a brand new start. Producing and writing different debate ideas for every single day in a calendar year can be quite the daunting task, but our writers – past and present – have done an amazing job engaging our community with provoking, funny, interesting, and smart topics. I remember the first time that I wrote a Daily Debate and seeing people go back and forth with points and counterpoints… it was amazing…

It starts slow, with a lone chord, giving you the sense that, this time, our hero is faced with a challenge far beyond any measure that he can comprehend. Then, a certain familiar song begins, and he finds a sense of bravery, of Courage, that builds from within. And then… Everything breaks loose. In this cover of the Zelda Main Theme by metalcore band August Burns Red, Link takes on Ganon with a whole new power all his own. Fast, roaring, wailing,…

Hey, how’s everyone doing this week? Welcome back to another entry in our Artists of Legend series! Considering how much submitted artwork we have on standby, we’re going to be featuring more artwork each week! I hope you continue to enjoy! Now, let’s get right into everything! Submitted Artwork: Last week, we asked you to create artwork of one of Link’s many different outfits, aside from his classic green tunic. And, here’s what you sent us!

The idea of Link having a family, in general, isn’t common in the Zelda series. Usually orphaned or living with his uncle or grandmother, Link’s parents are usually implied to have passed away by the time the game has already started. With the exception of Ocarina of Time (and manga appearances), Link’s mother in particular has never even been mentioned. In something of an exposition dump, the Deku Sprout reveals that Link’s mother brought him to the Kokiri Forest during…

We are creeping ever closer to the end of our Let’s Play of The Legend of Zelda: Second Quest. After having acquired the ladder in the previous episode, Mases and I were feeling pretty confident heading into level seven. This turned out to be foolish on our part. Check out the video to see our struggle! If you’d like to catch up with the series, check out this playlist! If you’d like to know when a new episode becomes available, head over to our Youtube channel and subscribe…

There’s nothing more that I love than a good mod for one of my favorite games. It can make a game that has started to feel boring and monotonous seem like an entirely new experience. As time goes on, each mod gets better and better, and creators are getting more and more… well, creative. Modder ItzSka recently took to modding Super Mario Odyssey, importing custom levels into the game. So far, a only couple mods have been added in, including…

No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again launches soon, in about 24 hours in Japan. And the game’s creator, Suda51, took to Twitter today talk about a special shirt the game’s protagonist will be able to collect and wear. Presented in a tweet with the caption “24  hours remain,” the shirt prominently features Link from Majora’s Mask. Attentive players will remember these words from Majora’s Mask, shown on the last of three days that drive the game’s mechanics. Suda51 is one of the…

It took me more than fifty hours of playing Breath of the Wild before I made my way to Rito Village. Despite this long wait, the moment I stepped into Rito Village has become the single most powerful and joyful moment across my two-hundred total hours of adventure. As I stared up into the whimsical town, bustling with activity, one of the most beautiful songs sprung into life. This acoustic guitar cover by Sam Griffin helps me remember and relive the…

Since its launch in September of last year, Nintendo Switch Online has stocked its digital library of NES games with a steady stream of updates. For instance, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link was added to the Switch Online service just last week. While getting free access to classic titles is certainly a perk of the service, many fans have expressed their desire to see games from other, more recent platforms added to Nintendo Switch Online, perhaps developing into a…

Hidden deep in the Lost Woods of the Woodland region lies the legendary Master Sword — the Blade of Evil’s Bane. Approaching it, the Great Deku Tree explains to us that, if a person who is deemed weak attempts to draw the sword, they will slowly lose their life. If we try to draw the sword with fewer than 13 hearts, excluding our first attempt, the sword will indeed drain our hearts to zero, resulting in death. This doesn’t exactly…

An aspect of Twilight Princess‘ story that I always enjoyed was the thematic connections between the light and dark, both in the storytelling and in the setting. It was a vital part of the experience, and part of what made it work well was when Link and Midna travel to the Twilight Realm through the Mirror of Twilight and recognizing that it deserved as much saving as Hyrule did. One thing that I always thought was a missed opportunity, though,…
