The month of March is almost upon us, and not only does that mean the winter is almost over, but it’s time for March Madness! Of course, we just couldn’t sit by and not get in on the action, so we decided to put a spin on a yearly feature that we like to run on the site. In 2018, Zelda Dungeon polled all of it’s contributors, from editors to social media managers to forum members to wiki editors, to…

So in case you’ve been living under a rock for the last two weeks, you’ve probably heard about the Link’s Awakening remake headed to the Nintendo Switch at some point this year. You’ve probably already watched the trailer a million times, weighed in with your thoughts, and maybe even dusted off your old copy of Link’s Awakening on your Game Boy Color to get you in the mood. This remake (which I’m dubbing as Link’s Reawakening to avoid confusion with…

Hello everyone! After a month off after the holidays, Inspired By Zelda is back and kicking off 2019 with a flurry of great games that pay homage to the Legend of Zelda series! We’re diving right in this month into the swashbuckling adventure that is Oceanhorn! Let’s go! Oceanhorn: Monsters of the Sea, developed by Finnish-based studios Cornfox & Bros. and published by FDG Entertainment, and available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile, is a Zelda-like game in…

Zelda was a generally quiet and reserved girl, but one who would voice herself where it was important. She was the most recent reincarnation of the Goddess Hylia, linked to a line of the reincarnating Spirit of the Hero, which possessed her friend and hero, Link. To her dismay, Zelda had come to develop feelings for Link. When she thought about it, she realized they were probably rooted as far back as the time before the Great Calamity. A century…

A part of her had known this day would come. It was destined to. And still, even knowing that… She was sad. Gone would be the days of walking amongst the woods; of laughing with the forest and exploring the leaves. There would be no more time to get lost and simply enjoy each other’s company. Everything was about to change. She had known the very first time that she had laid eyes on him that theirs was a friendship…

Dear diary, He came into the shop again. Why does he have to come here so often? Sometimes, it’s all I can do to stop myself from — It would be easier if he wasn’t so handsome… I wish I could speak to him as eloquently as I can to you: His deep, mysterious eyes enfold me, In the way I fantasize his arms would, The glittering blue gaze setting me free, I feel his silence is misunderstood. He can…

I’m not one to bring up my personal life in my work for Zelda Dungeon, but with this week being the Week of Love, I felt compelled to lift the curtain a bit on what goes on IRL. Last year, something pretty big happened for me: I got married! And as much as I love my new wife with all my heart, I must admit that she is very much not a gamer. She had only held a controller a…

 “What the hell happened in here?!” Fresh paint was splattered on the walls and spilled on the wooden floors in annoyingly vibrant shades of pinks, blues, turquoises and yellows. Little handprints had been left on nearly every surface in the small bedroom, and if Midna was being honest, it was like a bomb of paint had exploded. And the walls and floors weren’t the only things covered in paint. There, along with her godchild, was her lover, Queen Zelda. Pink…

The Sand Goddess and Demise The Sand Goddess strained against the chains which shackled her to the cold stone floor. She could not see her surroundings through the darkness, but she could feel the claustrophobic confines of her small prison. The air was thick — too thick to allow her to breathe freely. And so she suffocated, feeling the pain of death, over and over again. Yet, she could not die. She could not decide which was worse: this seemingly…

I am not one for romantic situations. In fact, the most romance I got growing up was from watching romantic comedies, which my mother would watch constantly. Every romcom featured the same romantic moments at the end of the third act; two people fall in love in a beautiful location, and everything goes wrong for the right reasons. That’s how I’ve always seen romance. You’re probably wondering what I’m trying to get at by mentioning all of this. Well, I…
