The puzzles in the Zelda series are ingeniously designed and crafted, forcing the players to think of creative solutions while using their powers and abilities available to solve the puzzles. Maybe it’s because of how spoiled I’ve been when solving these puzzles that when I come across “puzzles” in other series like in the Tales games, I roll my eyes and really struggle to get through it. What is it about other series, like Zelda, that elevates the puzzles to…

Link’s Awakening is centered around the collection of the Instruments of the Sirens. These eight magical instruments are the main goal of Link’s quest to wake the mystical Wind Fish. Each instrument is found at the end of one of the eight corresponding dungeons of the game. Each instrument collected adds one more piece to the “Ballad of the Wind Fish”, the melody that is supposed to be able to awaken the Wind Fish. The eight instruments, the Full Moon…

With the sunny season just around the corner, the folks over at Games Done Quick have just recently released the schedule of games (Zelda included) to be featured in this year’s Summer Games Done Quick. For those who don’t know, GDQ is made up of two dedicated and varied groups of speed runners who twice a year run a week-long exhibition charity stream. The Summer edition of the charity drive helps raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders)….

The time has come! After two months and eighteen intense match-ups, our best soundtrack tournament has reached its climax. Twenty OST’s entered this tournament in search of fame and glory, hoping to be named the best Zelda soundtrack of all time. Some fell swiftly, and others fought triumphantly until their bitter defeat. But in the end, only two games survived the grueling trials of the tournament bracket and earned a spot in the Finals. Ocarina of Time — the Koji…

Welcome back, dear listeners, to another rendition of The Champions’ Cast, comin’ at you from our new home on Monday nights! That’s right, now you can get your week off to the start that it deserves (take that for what you will) by listening to Andy, Sav, and Taylor bicker in your ears! This episode is all about villains: Which villains are the most woefully underutilized, what villain-types from other media would make a welcome addition to the Zelda series,…

The Hyrulean Civil War marked a dark period of time in the history of Hyrule.  The people turned against each other in vicious, all-out combat, with only a smattering of stories to be told to the player.  There are a few things we know, though: The war took place before the events of Ocarina of Time and raged on for years. Preceding the war, there was peace.  The peoples of the land were content for ages, until word got out of the…

Greetings, all you Zelda fans! Are you ready for yet another Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest? Don’t ask me why, but this month has somehow turned into helicopter month for our beloved competition. What started as a photoshop of Link as a military whirlybird has since morphed into a collection of propeller-based images that I intend to use for the next few contests. Last week saw Ocarina of Time‘s Running Man sprinting for his life as a Peahat chased after him….

Warning: This post contains some spoilers for The Champions’ Ballad. You’ve finished your final Divine Beast, and you’re preparing to start The Champions’ Ballad DLC, because you’re not quite ready to go take on Calamity Ganon. You take Link back to the Shrine of Resurrection, where he is greeted by a brand new, omniscient voice, naming itself Maz Koshia. The voice proceeds to guide him through a new set of trials, challenging him ultimately to face the fears hidden away in his mind…

Majora’s Mask is undoubtedly one of the best 3D Zelda titles to date and as such was highly anticipated to receive the Ocarina of Time 3DS treatment years before its eventual release. Though Nintendo was coy about hinting at its development status in the years between Ocarina of Time 3DS and A Link Between Worlds, eventually we received the news many had been waiting for. Finally, in February of 2015, the remake was released. Unlike with its predecessor however, Majora’s Mask received mixed reviews from hardcore Zelda fans. One…
