Andy and Taylor are back to cover a wide variety of different fans questions. On the table is Link’s Reawakening, our thoughts on Lana from Hyrule Warriors, which Nintendo 64 game needs a sequel, Horizon: Zero Dawn impressions, and… what each Zelda race smells like?? It’s another episode full of fun and shenanigans, and just because it’s Taylor’s birthday, Andy doesn’t make fun of Young Link… that much! Listen here, and get ready for next week as Andy finally makes…

Sheik remains one of my favorite parts of Ocarina of Time. The mystery of the character and their knowledge of time travel made her a good addition to the latter half of the game as Link’s guide. As cool as Sheik was though, the handling of the character wasn’t done especially well – with Zelda being immediately captured as soon as the disguise was dropped. Concept art of Sheik’s possible appearance in Twilight Princess inspired Super Smash Bros. Brawl and…

In the past several years, visual media like movies and video games have progressively become more inclusive by portraying all kinds of people. From The Shape of Water to Avatar: The Last Airbender, to The Dragon Prince and Moss, it proves that these characters aren’t defined by their disability (no matter what it is), and it instead becomes their strength. In particular, I’ve sign language to be the most interesting inclusion because it requires hiring interpreters on staff to ensure…

Swords are an iconic element of The Legend of Zelda franchise. Since the first game, our hero has wielded a sword in his quests to save the world from evil. While the Master Sword remains the most iconic sword in the series, as it appears in many of the games as the ultimate weapon, there have been an assortment of incredibly interesting and cool sword designs throughout the long history of the series. Which of the different sword designs is…

Enemies. We all have our favorites, the ones we love, and the ones we love to hate. But, have you ever considered which you would want to be? Let’s say, hypothetically – everyone loves a good hypothetical, right? – you find yourself transported into the land of Hyrule. Darkness has fallen. Things aren’t looking so great; they’re bleak, and covered in the blackish-reddish-pinkish ichor of Malice. Ganon reigns supreme now. And you…aren’t the hero. In fact, it is your mission…

Can the Zelda timeline actually be articulated? Since the timeline’s official release in the Hyrule Historia back in 2011, this is a hot question that has been pondered, sworn by and over, and debated by fans of the series until we turn blue in the face. And then, you know, when we finally think we somewhat have the grasp of it, Nintendo has to go and throw a couple wrenches into their own mess with the Encyclopedia and the revelation of Breath of the Wild’s…

Yesterday, Nintendo released detailed images of several alternate costumes for characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, including one for Link. This alternate costume bears resemblance to the Tunic of the Wild in Breath of the Wild, harkening back to Link’s design in games like the original Legend of Zelda and A Link to the Past. Link throws back on his iconic green hat and tunic, with brown sleeves and some thigh hugging shorts to complete the look (did Link borrow those…

The Zelda series has always knocked it out of the park with its games’ box art and external packaging. The talented artists of Nintendo have time and time again delivered an inviting and endearing glimpse at the adventure that awaits in each title, whether they present a striking mural / collage of characters and set pieces, or they represent the class and majesty of the Zelda brand through a gold-centric design. But we can’t have a debate if we all…

I like to think that I have some degree of self control, but every biannual Steam sale and every big Humble Bundle seems to be a huge temptation for the binge gamer that lives within me. When I see every game in a given series for sale at a reasonable price, I can barely stop myself from dumping the contents of my wallet right then and there. And I’m easily enticed by fancy series collections put out by big developers,…

I love cosplay, and I know I am not alone. It’s one of the most popular forms of art across all different kinds of fandoms. To see so many people put their talents and hours into bringing life to beloved characters is never anything short of amazing. And not only do these costumes reflect what we see in game, but every time one comes to fruition, it’s unique, the artist’s interpretation of what they see and feel. So, let’s take…
