The Legend of Zelda has been a staple series in the lives of many gamers, including mine. My first Zelda game was Ocarina of Time, but it’s not the title that defined my childhood. The Zelda game that takes that prize for me is The Wind Waker. When my brother and I received our GameCube for Christmas, it opened up a new world of games that we could rent from Blockbuster. I remember seeing The Wind Waker’s golden box on…

Welcome back to another Zelda Runners. I’m Euan, and over the next 5 or 6 scrolls (or directional arrow key taps, I won’t judge), I’ll bring you bang up to date with all the latest Zelda speedrunning news. Today, we’re talking Zelda II Tournaments, Randomizer updates, and stopping time in Majora’s Mask (but not as you know it). So, without any more hesitation, put your hands on your hips, and bring your knees in tight…   Now Playing The Zelda II All Keys Tournament has made it to…

Remakes have become a staple of the Zelda franchise ever since the release of Ocarina of Time 3D in 2011 – excluding the more obscure BS Zelda no Densetsu, Link’s Awakening DX, and Ocarina of Time: Master Quest. Since the N64 classic first hit the 3DS, five remakes have been released in the forms of Four Swords Anniversary Edition, The Wind Waker HD, Majora’s Mask 3D, Twilight Princess HD,  and the recent Link’s Awakening. Every remake has its fair share of additions and changes, big…

Zelda games house many iconic and memorable areas. It’s difficult not to associate the franchise with the mazes of the Lost Woods, the fires of Death Mountain, or the regality of Hyrule Castle. Yet, the perilous desert regions seem to stand out in their own special way as a fan favorite. In a recent video, YouTuber Croton explored the reasons why desert areas in Zelda games are so iconic, specifically Lanayru Desert in Skyward Sword and Gerudo Desert in Ocarina of Time,…

Link has had the privilege of meeting some pretty important figures in Hyrule over the years. We’ve had King Zora, Chancellor Cole, Mayor Bo and Princess Zelda of course! But if you were given the opportunity to meet the leader of any tribe or race in Hyrule, which would you choose? My vote would be Darunia from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I don’t have anything against the King of Hyrule or the Chieftain of the Rito tribe,…

The “Song of Storms” from Ocarina of Time is such a hypnotic song that it just gets stuck in your head. The catchy beats and the memorable interactions with Guru-Guru in the Kakariko Windmill make this a recurring song you surely will not forget. Building on this tune’s enduring legacy, a new lofi remix of the “Song of Storms” comes to us from Jonas Munk Lindbo and the folks over at GameChops (publisher of the Zelda & Chill fan album)….

The origins of Hyrule would not be complete without mentioning the Golden Goddesses – Farore, Din, and Nayru. As detailed in Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess, they ascended to the heavens and left the Triforce in their stead. Yet, before they did, they entrusted the goddess Hylia to protect the land and it’s denizens. Hylians, in consequence, have seemed to maintain a faith and loyalty to their goddesses for eons since. However, the Golden Goddesses and Hylia’s silence in…

Zelda lore is heavily steeped in ancient mythos, with the goddesses creating the land of Hyrule before departing to the heavens. While much of the series’ lore revolves around the three Golden Goddesses, other games include references to other gods, such as Majora’s Mask with the Goddess of Time, Skyward Sword with the Goddess Hylia, and The Wind Waker with the Wind Gods Zephos and Cyclos. There are also many lesser-beings who (while not considered gods or deities) are still…

The wanderer stumbled and dropped to his knees as he reached the crest of the final dune. He smiled, looking to the valley below, and thought back on the moment of his childhood that had started his journey to this place. The sandy streets of Medina were busy in that evening light. He, a young boy, disguised out of necessity, hurried through one of the back alleys with a long loaf of bread cradled in his arms. His mother had…

The moment has finally come. Tonight may be the night where I meet my maker. At 7pm central time I will be taking on the Great Deku Tree completely blindfolded with only Mases words to guide me! If you would like to partake in this madness come on over to Twitch and see for yourself. Hopefully I will see you on the other side… EDIT: The stream is over, but here is an archive of the stream. Watch Ocarina of…
