Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018:

Category: Four Swords Adventures

As some of you might have heard, today marks the beginning of what can only be described as the biggest Zelda event of the year – the Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018. Packed to the brim with exciting content, nail biting races, and comically failed glitches and exploits, you do not want to miss it. While the team involved with the event might brush it off as a bit of fun (and an excellent way to raise money for charity), an underlying tension…

Welcome to a post-Summer Games Done Quick world. This week, I’ll be re-capping all seven Zelda runs featured at the event, as well as chatting to a Skyward Sword runner and bingo player. So sit back and relax after what was likely a very stressful week of watching a single Twitch stream non-stop (what do you mean ‘that was just me’?).   Now Playing This week saw possibly the biggest speedrunning event of the year: Summer Games Done Quick 2018, a…

A Link to the Past is a fantastic entry in the Zelda series that introduced many important gameplay and story elements in the series, among them being the Sages and Maidens, beings capable of sealing away Ganondorf. Subsequent games have included Sages and Maidens as well, with many of them featuring important character arcs that revolve around awakening their powers. In all of the games that Sages have appeared in since A Link to the Past – Ocarina of Time,…

E3 is fast approaching, and we are one week away from Nintendo’s big showing. Over the course of E3 history, Zelda has had some highs (Twilight Princess trailer making grown men cry) and some lows (Skyward Sword trailer also making grown men cry, but for a different reason), but a new year is upon us with a world of new possibilities. A remake of Link’s Awakening on the 3DS? An online port of Four Swords Adventure for the Switch? More…

It’s that time again! The Champions’ Cast officially kicks off E3 month with our first show, the ever-popular-baseless-speculatory E3 Prediction show! Taylor and I go head to head and offer our insight as to what we think is going down during Nintendo’s conference. We’ve bet our souls on this, as the winner of our little E3 bet will watch the loser stream his least favorite Final Fantasy game.Are you #TeamSpiteri or #TeamTaylor? Zelda remakes! Virtual Console! F-Zero! Fortnite! It’s all…

Chances are, if you’re reading this, you’re a pretty big Legend of Zelda fan. You might even be a die hard fan. I know I am; that’s what led me here, just as sure as it probably led you. In addition to everything else I play, I make sure to play at least a couple Zelda’s every year, from new to old, just to remind myself how great this series is and why I fell in love with it. Chances…

What’s up friends? I hope that your Monday finds you and yours well. If it doesn’t, come listen to Andy and Taylor complain about Nintendo’s new Nintendo Switch Paid Online Service (whew…) and hopefully that will cheer you up! We break down what we do like, what we don’t like, the value of the free games versus service price, that darn voice chat, and most interestingly of all, ask the question: with Nintendo cranking out Zelda ports as fast as…

The puzzles in the Zelda series are ingeniously designed and crafted, forcing the players to think of creative solutions while using their powers and abilities available to solve the puzzles. Maybe it’s because of how spoiled I’ve been when solving these puzzles that when I come across “puzzles” in other series like in the Tales games, I roll my eyes and really struggle to get through it. What is it about other series, like Zelda, that elevates the puzzles to…

With the sunny season just around the corner, the folks over at Games Done Quick have just recently released the schedule of games (Zelda included) to be featured in this year’s Summer Games Done Quick. For those who don’t know, GDQ is made up of two dedicated and varied groups of speed runners who twice a year run a week-long exhibition charity stream. The Summer edition of the charity drive helps raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders)….
