I signed up for HelloFresh recently and it’s sparked a newfound enjoyment for cooking for me. Since then, I’ve been browsing the Internet in search of additional recipes to add to my library of delicious foods to try my hand at. Inevitably my search included video games as well, with games like Final Fantasy XV and Breath of the Wild being a top contender. Not all of the ingredients in these dishes translate to real-world recipes perfectly, but many creative…

Every Zelda game has some amount of glitches or errors in them, but few glitches in Zelda history were more deadly than the original Skyward Sword‘s game-breaking glitch related to the Song of the Hero. The most awkward thing about this glitch was the fact that some players would never ever see it, because it is avoidable depending on how the player completes the different parts of the Song of the Hero quest. However, players who started with the Lanayaru…

The Zelda series isn’t known to be too difficult, but I think we can agree that there are some segments of different games in the series that are quite tedious — ahem, Skyward Sword’s repetitive Imprisoned battles, anyone? But what games are notorious for having the most tedious quests? Don’t get me wrong, every game in the Zelda series is crafted so well, and they are all polished, satisfying adventures. But, for me, there is one game that always brings up complicated emotions…

In 2018, a small number of Wii games became available for Nvidia Shield owners in China. The Nvidia Shield is powered by the Tegra X1, the same processor found in the Nintendo Switch. With such a limited release, the release of these titles was likely intended to serve as a test run for potential Wii emulation on Switch. According to industry analyst Daniel Ahmad, who reports on the video game market in Asia, the ability to download these Wii titles…

With the positive reception and impressive sales performance of Skyward Sword HD, Nintendo has an interest in keeping the game visible and extending the launch window for as long as possible. The new release will be making another special appearance during Tetris 99‘s 23rd Maximus Cup event, where players will be able to unlock a unique, in-game theme based on Skyward Sword HD. For the unacquainted, Tetris 99 is a distinctive multiplayer take on the classic puzzler, incorporating battle royale elements popularized…

Alasyn returns this week to join Andy in one of their absolute favorite activities: definitive rankings! Borrowing the concept from their Hyrule Compendium pals, definitive ranking entails taking the ten categories that really make up a Zelda game – the world, the art style, the story, the music, the dungeons, the bosses, the items, the pacing, the extras, and the gameplay – and ranking it from 1 to 5. Where does Skyward Sword fall on our list? Come listen to…

Weeks after the release of Skyward Sword HD, some players are reporting a new glitch exclusive to this port. First showcased by Reddit user Sawyerqs, the glitch occurs inside Lanayru Mining Facility; in the room with the Dungeon Map, there is a sliding block that can get stuck and become unmovable. At first glance, this may seem trivial because the Dungeon Map is a purely optional item, but that’s not why this room is important. There is a door here…

Controversy and speculation have swirled since Nintendo withdrew from the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Many fans felt disappointed and confused by the absence of the gaming giant that has so powerfully shaped the world of video games, particularly given the role the company played in celebrating Japan’s bid and acceptance of the international games. But at long last–Nintendo has made its appearance at the Olympics! First reported by Nintendeal, Belgian Olympic gymnastics coach Marjorie Heuls (the…

I recently have been playing Skyward Sword HD for the very first time. I was not super familiar with the game, but I know that it was more traditional as far as Zelda games were concerned in comparison to Breath of the Wild. Skyward Sword has all of the major tropes popular in Zelda games, dungeons, puzzles, mini-games, escort missions, and more. One thing I was not prepared for was the nightmare inducing trials of the Silent Realm. My first…

Greetings, Zelda fans! Are you ready for a rather unique edition of Zelda Dungeon’s Caption Contest? Some ZD veterans might remember that I, in addition to hosting the Caption Contest, used to host a Photoshop Contest for the site back in the day. Overseeing two separate contests each week ended up taking its toll, so I decided to merge both concepts together for the modern version of the Caption Contest. But, after seeing this week’s contest image on Twitter recently,…
