With Valentine’s Day upon us, I have been pondering the love presented in my favorite video game series. Throughout the many games in the Legend of Zelda franchise, there are quite a few love stories showcased! There’s Yeto and Yeta in Twilight Princess, suggestions of something between Ravio and Princess Hilda when you read the cowardly hero’s diary in A Link Between Worlds, and the absolute icons that are Anju and Kafei from Majora’s Mask. I am here for all the…

With Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth releasing this month and hearing all the fans theorize about what differences this game’s story will have to the original, I have been pondering about potential opportunities Nintendo would have if they gave the same treatment to one of the best games they’ve ever created: Ocarina of Time. Yes, Ocarina of Time already got a remake treatment with Ocarina of Time 3D on the Nintendo 3DS, but I’m talking about a true, open-world, modern remake….

Cozy games, namely games that make you want to stay inside all day, drink your favorite hot beverage, and snuggle in a blanket, are all the rage these days. Maybe it’s because we’re in that lull of winter right now, but I have been getting the itch to play cozy games all day long and neglect all my other responsibilities. When you first think of cozy games, you might think of hits like Stardew Valley or Animal Crossing. However, the…

With Ocarina of Time still coming in at the number-one spot in Zelda Dungeon’s 2023 Best Zelda Ever list, it goes to show that many of the adventures in this series are timeless, still managing to capture our hearts with each revisit. In fact, I can honestly say that I have replayed classics like The Wind Waker, Ocarina of Time, Skyward Sword, and A Link to the Past too many times to count. However, with this new open world style…

Over the months since Tears of the Kingdom was released, I have tried to uncover every nook and cranny of this game, as well as the story and lore it adds to my favorite series of all time. As much as I love it though, this adventure doesn’t come without flaws. I adore the ambiguity of the Legend of Zelda series that allows us super fans to conspire and theorize about what’s really going on, but some of the unanswered…

Each year, I love to replay my favorite video games at least once, especially in the Zelda series. With Tears of the Kingdom’s release into the wild in 2023, the waiting game begins again for the next installment in this beloved franchise, giving us ample time to replay many masterpieces in the series. Right now, I’m in the middle of Twilight Princess; a magnificent game that I haven’t touched for years. I plan to finish this adventure first before tackling…

Tears of the Kingdom director Hidemaro Fujibayashi is at it again with  interviews and commentary. This time, he has much to discuss about a new fan-favorite character in the Legend of Zelda series: King Rauru. In an interview with Polygon’s Ana Diaz, Fujibayashi goes into more depth about the first King of Hyrule who is also one of the two remaining Zonai left in the Breath of the Wild universe. Diaz begins this segment by commenting on fans theorizing about how…

With the Legend of Zelda movie announcement, there have been ideas flying all over the internet about what a movie could possibly entail. I think all fans can agree that we are both excited and slightly wary of how well our favorite hero and princess will be portrayed on the big screen. I’ve been pondering a lot lately about the different stories we have seen in this series over the years, and I can’t help but wonder which story would…

December brings closure to a year of gaming with the annual Game Awards. This year, with the release of the much-anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom along with it’s insane amount of record-breaking sales, huge fan base, and high praise, many thought that this masterpiece of a game had the “Game of the Year” award in the bag. However, in the endgame, Baldur’s Gate 3 took home the crown, with Tears of the Kingdom only winning one…

I’ve been playing Zelda games all year — which isn’t new for me. I always try to play my favorites at least once all the way through during each year. I knew with Tears of the Kingdom releasing this year that my personal list of favorite Zelda games might get a little muddled with this new entry that could fit anywhere. I have always been one who places Ocarina of Time at the top of my list (for obvious reasons),…
