Majora’s Mask is a strange game in the Zelda series. Dark and foreboding, the game presents an ever-present sense of despair and sorrow as the moon looms over Clock Town. But despite the sadness present in the game, there are some surprising moments of wonder, joy, and beauty hidden throughout the strange world of Termina. One moment of wonder involves Link entering the Astral Observatory. The Astral Observatory is a planetarium that Link enters through a series of tunnels below Clock…

For years, The Legend of Zelda, using the d-pad and joysticks, was a series that had fairly simple controls. There wasn’t too much to them, and they didn’t take much effort to use. That all changed when the Wii came out, and Nintendo began to put emphasis on controlling things with motion – true, physical motion. While Twilight Princess for the Wii implemented some basic motion controls, Skyward Sword truly made use of them with the combat, requiring specific motions with the Wii Remote to allow…

Ladies and gentleman, my name is Kristen. Rosario. And I am your host for the CAVE OF TRIALS! Now before we begin part two of round one of the SMASH ULTIMATE FANTASMIC HOLIDAY TOURNAMENT, let’s take a look at the bracket to see who has already made it to round two! As you can see, other than one rather surprising upset, it was a good first half of round one. With all of that out of the way, let’s get…

The Magic Medallions – Bombos, Ether, and Quake – are unique items that have only appeared in A Link to the Past and Four Swords Adventures. Two of the three medallions are vital to the story progression of A Link to the Past and can unleash devastating spells. But as a plus, not only are these items necessary to complete the story, all three Magic Medallions are very useful items that can be used to clear out dungeon rooms and…

In a big move for online content creators, Nintendo recently announced sweeping changes to their content guidelines for video / image sharing sites. Doing away with the Nintendo Creators Program and lifting various restrictions on how fans can use its copyrighted works, Nintendo has made it easier for creators on YouTube and other video sharing sites to monetize videos featuring Nintendo-owned content. With the content guideline changes already in effect, Nintendo plans to completely close the Nintendo Creators Program at…

On our last episode of our Legend of Zelda: Second Quest Let’s Play we found some unique challenges that really upped the difficulty. Dungeon three is a sort of change of pace, and a goofy one at that. If you’d like to catch up with the series, I’ve prepared this handy playlist for you! If you’d like to know when a new episode becomes available, head over to our Youtube channel and subscribe so you will be the first to know! If you enjoyed…

There’s no other way to put it: Anodyne is fricken’ crazy. Don’t get the wrong idea about that either – it’s crazy in a wonderful, beautiful way. But after finishing the main campaign and exploring the land of Anodyne (aptly named The Land), I can’t really think of a better way to put it. But let’s back up for a second and start from the beginning. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is one of my favorite Zelda titles. Part…

We’ve all been there. In the middle of an epic match, items falling from the sky, you’re so focused on slamming on your enemies you don’t see the Beetle behind you…and skyward you go. There’s a whole armoury of really fun items to use on your foes in Smash, but life-ruining to be used on. The newest item, the Cuckoo, is comical and fun to rain rampant, raging roosters across the field but the worst to be smashed by. Skyward…

Chapter Four “What do you mean our supplies aren’t coming through?” “It’s just as I said, Your Grace. We haven’t received shipment for any of the stone we requested from the Goron’s for the last week or so.” The messenger knelt before the throne, glancing nervously at Zelda. She sighed, rubbing her left temple with the pad of her thumb, a frown pulling at her mouth. She struggled to reign in her frustration. Why hadn’t they received the shipment? And…

While some might disagree, Breath of the Wild stands as one of my favorite games in the Zelda franchise. As I see it, the game is more of a story of Link and his journey than it is about the Champions or Hyrule. This incredibly animation by Mire focuses on Link and his story in Breath of the Wild. With the upbeat (if you don’t know Japanese) music of invaderT’s “Deathly Loneliness Attacks” playing in the background, Mire repeatedly uses partially moving artwork to form their animation. The art…
