If you didn’t get enough Zelda predictions in this week’s Champion’s Cast, Mases and Gooey are here to talk about them some more! In the newest entry in the Hyrule Compendium we run down the two biggest Zelda rumors from last year and discuss whether or not they will come to fruition. Do you think we’ll see anything like this? What do you want to see happen with Zelda in 2019? If there is any other aspect of the next…

It’s that time of year again, for family, friends, celebration, and really questionable choices of sweaters. The lights are hung, the candles are lit, the end of the year is upon us, and no matter which holiday you celebrate or why, this is a season for cheer and good times. You have decided to host a party for all your favorite characters in The Legend of Zelda. So, who all do you invite? Let’s face it, each of the characters would…

It’s the wonderful time of the year for video games as the Black Friday Deals have started rolling in! Black Friday is that time of the year where stores find it in their blessed (ie. wicked) hearts to give extreme discounts to a whole bunch of items in their stores. For most gamers, this is a chance to grab a whole bunch of games to help fill out their backlog. For some on the other hand, there’s the opportunity of…

Hello everybody, and welcome to Zelda Dungeon’s Best Zelda Ever 2018! Although no new Zelda games were released in the time between our list last year and now, by no means has it been a quiet time for Zelda fans. The biggest x-factor heading into our 2017 edition of the list was the recently released Breath of the Wild, and it would be fair to say that the latest Zelda adventure retains that x-factor title this year as well. As…

Not content to just remake A Link to the Past with updated visuals, Nintendo put a unique spin on the beloved title with A Link Between Worlds. Even setting aside all of the other new elements that qualify the game as a sequel, simply having the ability to cling to walls as a painting gives the game such a distinct identity. When it comes to “remixing” games, A Link Between Worlds is easily my go-to example. That said, could Nintendo…

It’s that time of the week again! No, not “just Tuesday”, it’s the latest edition of Zelda Runners. Missed out on the Mini Games Done Quick marathon at TwitchCon? Fear not, you can find details of that below. In Glitch Exhibition, we’re going full escapism mode, looking at the various methods used to escape early game locations. And, in Spotlight, we’re chatting to a Breath of the Wild runner about the game’s recent breakthroughs. This is a big-yun, so let’s…

The recently released fan album Zelda Cinematica presents the score to the “epic Hollywood Zelda movie that lifelong fans have conjured in their heads”. The album, created Sam Dillard, draws from a variety of Zelda games across diverse series. This composition, titled “Beyond The Mirror“, is an arrangement of “The Dark World” from A Link to The Past and “Lorule Castle” from its long overdue sequel A Link Between World. The arrangement is a boisterous, booming rendition of both tracks….

Hyrule Castle is one of the most iconic locations in The Legend of Zelda series. The seat of Hyrule’s government has been featured in a variety of different forms throughout the years. With each new game, the designers and developers take time to create a new version of Hyrule Castle. Seeing the newest version of the iconic castle is always a treat for fans and critics, who are desperately waiting for news about the next  Zelda game. Hyrule Castle was…

While the dungeons of The Legend of Zelda series are what makes it so unique. The pacing of objectives and story between dungeons can be very important as well. In our newest entry into the Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I begin to take a look at the different approaches to pacing from dungeon to dungeon. This time around we look at the games that we dub “Dungeon Gauntlets”, which are games that have few objectives or story between dungeons. Do you…

This week, Games Done Quick, a huge charity marathon organization, released their schedules for two upcoming events: GDQ Express and Awesome Games Done Quick 2019. Expanding out from their bi-annual speedrunning marathons, GDQ Express is taking place at the end of October at TwitchCon, a huge gathering of Twitch streamers and viewers.
