A Knight’s Tale was released in cinemas back in 2001. Produced and directed by Brian Helgeland, this adventure / comedy film stars the late Heath Ledger as peasant William Thatcher. The story follows the adventures of William as he seeks to “change his stars” and become a knight. In other words, this is our “quest” in the film. Along the way, he gains the respect of friends old and new, and falls in love with noblewoman Jocelyn, who has also…

Earlier today, Nintendo unveiled a new color for the Nintendo Switch Lite that will be arriving this Spring. This color variation, known simply as “Coral”, is a light-pink version of the current Switch Lite system. Coral will be the fourth color option available for the Switch Lite console (fifth if you include the special edition Pokémon Sword/Shield model). The Nintendo Switch Lite Coral color variant will be available in Japan on March 20th, with pre-orders available on March 7th. For…

Breath of the Wild left me with a lot of questions regarding Link and Zelda’s relationship. They’re certainly friends, but I wonder if they will ever be together as a couple.  This is something that Nintendo tend to leave to the player’s own imagination and is often a topic of debate among the fan-base, but there is arguably sufficient story-line available to lead up to a romance between the pair in the next Zelda installment. As Link reclaims his memories in…

When I first started watching anime — and realized how much I enjoyed it — it felt like my eyes were opened to a whole other world, and somewhat literally. With few exceptions, I hadn’t grown up with Japanese animation and it wasn’t until high school that I was fully introduced to the genre, and by extension, Studio Ghibli films. It all started during a vacation to Colorado. Anime was a staple in the household where we were staying, with…

Hey folks! There’s not really any Zelda news this week, so we thought we’d play a little game to pass the time! Back by popular demand, it’s Guess That Zelda Character! This time, we limited it to 16 (wooo!) yes or no questions to try and figure out the character the other had picked! Come play along with us, and if you’re looking for even more fun after the episode is over, go check out Gooey and I’s podcast all…

Although the Zelda franchise features a protagonist that stays silent for the most part, the series is not without memorable quotes. On the more iconic side is, of course, “It’s dangerous to go alone, take this!” from The Legend of Zelda, or “You’ve met with a terrible fate, haven’t you?” from Majora’s Mask. But there are also sayings that are famously comedic, like “I am Error” from The Adventure of Link, or Groose’s suggestion to name Hyrule “Grooseland” upon first landing on the surface…

Guided by an old man, wise by age and cloaked in mystery, a youth takes a blade with ideas of heroism. A life wandering at the unknown and longing for adventure is cut short abruptly when his home is destroyed by the forces of evil. The youth is left with no choice but to trust his inner courage and face the growing evils in a world otherwise foreign. Faced with hardships, the youth rises to the challenge for the characters…

What’s most rewarding about the video games we love and play is that they bring us a rather unique form of comfort. They can help us out after a long and stressful day of work, and they can bring simple joy to those who need it the most. While I’m talking more about mental comfort, there are times when video games can be a unique form of physical comfort as well. That’s what tavingtoncrafts on Etsy is aiming to accomplish…

In many cases, the bosses in the Zelda series function as adversaries for both Link and the player to overcome. They’re usually just…there. The bosses don’t usually have backstory or origin story, they’re usually just…there, and exist to as a threatening obstacle. But the results are fun and challenging boss fights, so it’s easy to let their lack of origin slide. But there are some rare exceptions where players catch a glimpse of what they’re up against before the fight…

By now, we all know what Link’s actual next adventure will be. Or, at least we have an idea. Last year, Nintendo surprised us with the announcement of Breath of the Wild 2. While that’s almost certainly a working title, we have at least a vague idea of what to expect in the next major Zelda release. But beyond that, the sky is truly the limit for Nintendo. Sales of the Link’s Awakening remake have been through the roof, clearly showing…
