Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018:

Category: Link’s Awakening

Over the course of this four part series, Mases and Gooey will discuss and rank all of the single player games in the main Legend of Zelda series. Each episode we will pick four games at random and we must come to an agreement on where it will be placed on our list! In this episode we discuss Twilight Princess, Phantom Hourglass, Link’s Awakening, and The Wind Waker. What do you think of our list? How would you have ranked these games? Stay tuned because over…

It was in Breath of the Wild that we were first introduced to the race of Leviathans, a species of giant whale-like creatures. Breath of the Wild features three Leviathans, each speculated to have been killed by a different cataclysmic event, a skeleton in the Gerudo Desert killed by prolonged drought, one in the Hebra Mountains killed by a severe ice age, and the third in the Eldin Mountains killed by a volcanic eruption. This, however, is not the first appearance of these…

Nintendo’s E3 2018 Direct certainly made us fans of the Super Smash Bros. series happy, didn’t it?  Placing the vast majority of their focus on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the company let us know where their priorities lie.  And, frankly, that’s not entirely a bad thing, but…parts of us were still left wanting.  Things we hoped for, but did not see.  Many of us here at Zelda Dungeon had hoped for a couple other tidbits from our favorite series – especially me.  I know that the Zelda…

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 of the week again! Go make your tea or coffee, grab a few biscuits (they’ve gotta be chocolate though), and get settled for your update on the Zelda Speedrunning community over the last fortnight. Today we’re looking at Bomb Hovering, a 2D Zelda tournament, and having a chat with a giant of 3D Zelda speedrunning. So make yourself comfortable, and let’s get started!   Now Playing The next two months sees a huge Link’s Awakening tournament. Using the…

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…

It’s like someone hit The Legend of Zelda upside the head with a Bible and a sense of adorable morbidity. I tried to come up with a better way to phrase it — really, I did — but ultimately, my several-years-old impression of Edmund McMillen’s 2011 dungeon crawler seemed to be the most fitting description. Dark, grotesque, and strangely a little cute and sad, The Binding of Isaac takes everything fans loved about the original Zelda game and twists it into a fun, albeit disturbing, romp…

The Legend of Zelda is renowned for its creative puzzles and the sheer variety of mind-bending challenges throughout the entire series. It often feels as though every game has a new puzzle that the player has not seen before. At the same time, there are certain puzzles that feel familiar but offer new challenges, building upon skills mastered earlier in an adventure. As the Zelda series’ continues to lead the charge on puzzle-solving challenges, other games have naturally followed in its footsteps to…

Zelda Challenge is our show where Kevin and Gooey debate a topic relating to The Legend of Zelda. Then we ask our fans to vote in a poll and let us know who you thought won the debate! It’s OG vs Iconic! Kevin believes that the Boomerang from Link’s Awakening is the best trading sequence reward while Gooey is a supporter of the Biggoron’s Sword. Which one of these OP items will be the victor? We want to know who…
