Back in May, we presented a pair of Daily Debates relating the recently released Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes to the upcoming live-action Zelda film — they share a director after all! While we could have done a better job with the timing of these articles — we were trying to capture some kneejerk reactions just as the first Apes reviews came in and then conduct a follow-up once people had a chance to see the film —…

Salutations, Zelda fans! Are you ready for another fun-filled edition of the Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest? As many of you know, I hosted a special live edition of the contest at the Zelda Dungeon Marathon a few weeks ago. During that segment, I offered viewers a glimpse at an upcoming contest image inspired by the newly announced The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom.

Nintendo’s war against software pirates continues, as the gaming giant has filed two new lawsuits in federal court in Seattle, Washington against members of the Switch modding and piracy communities. The most noteworthy case brought forth recently is against Arizona resident James Williams, better known by his online handle “Archbox.” Nintendo alleges that Williams, a known moderator of the r/SwitchPirates Subreddit, is “the operator, overseer, and driving force behind several Pirate Shops, through which Defendant has offered massive libraries of…

Last year, Ubisoft news editor and game industry veteran Mikel Reparaz offered up an interesting take on the Game Boy Advance during an episode of his Vidjagame Apocalypse podcast. When discussing the newly announced Switch remake of Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Reparaz asserted that “GBA graphics, for the most part, have aged terribly.” Beyond just the resolution limitations of the 2001 handheld, Reparaz took particular aim at the system’s “aesthetics” and “distinctive look.” “It’s sort of like Donkey Kong Country…

Earlier this month, an unofficial native PC port of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, titled Zelda64Recomp, made its way online, largely thanks to a new recompilation tool developed by modder Mr-Wiseguy. This tool, known as N64: Recompiled, streamlines the process of decompiling/recompiling Nintendo 64 code, wherein a game’s original code is translated into modern computer code so that it runs natively on PCs, no emulation needed. The Majora’s Mask port was the first demonstration of N64: Recompiled’s utility, but we…
