What makes a satisfying dungeon is a great question for Zelda fans to discuss. This is a complex discussion because the elements that make a great early dungeon and the elements that make a great late-game dungeon are quite different. The early dungeons in Zelda games are often designed to teach the player the language of puzzle solving and to serve as tutorials for how to navigate a complex collection of rooms and floors. Yes, these early dungeons still need…

Zelda Dungeon is back with a new entry in the “Definitive Ranking” series where host Mases and Gooey continue their quest to analyze each game in the Zelda series and rank them based on ten different categories. In this episode, the duo take a deep dive into one of the most interesting spin-off games in the Zelda series: Hyrule Warriors. Developed by Koei Tecmo (Omega Force and Team Ninja), Hyrule Warriors was first released in August and September 2014 on the Wii-U….

Zelda fans all have their own opinions about what is the best final dungeon in the series. Overall, the community is very fortunate because there are a variety of great final dungeons across the franchise’s long history. Breath of the Wild‘s Hyrule Castle, the most recent final area in a Zelda game, continues the series’ trend of having great final dungeons for the player to tackle. One of the most interesting things about Hyrule Castle is that the player can…

In the final Tier Force Heroes episode of 2022, Gooey Fame, Corey Richmond, and Skull Kid Nico rank the different regions of Breath of the Wild. The vast game world is broken down into 15 diverse regions, which gives the crew plenty to talk about! The Tier Force Heroes discuss the geography of each region and the points of interest within each region. One of the trickiest things about discussing the regions of Breath of the Wild is that the game…

Breath of the Wild introduced a host of exciting new characters to the Zelda series, and one of the most popular characters from the game is Kass. The Rito musician can be throughout the wilds of Hyrule, and the player can hear his accordion even before they spot the songster. Kass has two different behaviors depending on his locations. At the safety of various stables across Hyrule, Kass will recount songs about Hyrule’s history to Link. If Link encounters Kass…

As we move through the busy holiday season, it seems like most Zelda fans are daydreaming about Tears of the Kingdom. Set for release in May 2023, the game finally feels tangible! While I have enjoyed rewatching the most recent trailer, Nintendo has not released many concrete details about the upcoming game. Even though the game was announced at E3 2019, Nintendo has been extremely guarded with footage of the game. The combined length of the various trailers for Tears of…

One of my hopes for Tears of the Kingdom is a more diverse roster of enemies scattered across its open world. While the technology and AI behind the Bokoblins, Moblins, Lizalfos, and Lynels in Breath of the Wild is impressive, the enemies encounters with these familiar foes can get stale at times during long playthroughs. At certain points in my playthroughs of Breath of the Wild, I would avoid camps of Bokoblins and Moblins because I did not want to go…

In this episode, Gooey Fame, Corey Richmond, and Skull Kid Nico discuss all of the dragons and dragon-adjacent creatures from across the Zelda series. Dragons have a long history within the Zelda series; the dragons Aquamentus and Gleeok appear in the original Zelda game as bosses.
