I’m not the only person who thought A Link Between Worlds was one of the best games of 2013, as the 3DS title was a resounding hit with critics, earning a score of 91 on Metacritic.

There is no doubt that the Triforce has greatly changed the landscape of the Zelda world with each and every generation, but only to those who have truly used its complete capabilities. The video we’re looking at today comes to…

Dr.Wily does a lot of Zelda video analyses on various aspects of the series, such as an interesting video series on the evolution of different races in the Zelda franchise. In this series, Dr.Wily tries to track what changes were made to a race’s design and how certain characteristics of the race changed. His previous entries include an analysis of the Kokiri and the evolution of the Deku, for example. The particular episode above is dedicated to the Poe. The Poe first appeared in A Link…
