Throughout the years, a fair number of side activities have found their way into the Zelda series. A couple in particular ended up taking way more of my time than I would’ve expected at first glance. From Ocarina of Time’s fishing to Twilight Princess’s Fruit Pop Flight Challenge, these often serve as a relaxing break from the dire stakes of the main quest. Going forward, I would love to see the series take some of these diversions and expand upon…

The Intro Dungeon: a games first dungeon that acts both as a tutorial as to how the rest of the game plays, and as a standalone experience. That’s our definition anyways, so with that in mind, the gang discuss the 5 best intro dungeons in the series and give some honorable mentions to strong opening “areas”. We also shoot on the worst intro sections (no points for guessing mine) and what made them so lackluster. Come have fun as Corey…

A few days ago, a game titled Final Sword made its way onto the Nintendo Switch eShop. Developed by HUP Games Inc., Final Sword is an open world game described as “the original Action RPG of Nintendo Switch™ in 2020”. It is actually a port of a mobile game that was released in August of last year. Recently, Final Sword was thrust into the spotlight after a Twitter user discovered the game uses an arrangement of “Zelda’s Lullaby” as background…

I recently started reading the Zelda manga. So far I’ve been loving what I’m reading and I’ve been extremely impressed with the style of art, how it’s presented, and the enhancements on the story. I’ve read the manga adaptation of Ocarina of Time, and I am currently reading Twilight Princess. As I’ve been reading through Twilight Princess I kept thinking how much more I feel the manga enhances the game. So does reading the Zelda manga enhance your thoughts on…

If I could say one thing about the Zelda fanbase, it’s that we’re an opinionated lot.  We like to discuss the finer details of the series, and we certainly don’t shy away from a debate, especially when our opinion isn’t very popular.  Whether we’re talking about our favorite Zelda title, the next upcoming game, or all that’s in between, we’ll tell you exactly how we feel, and you can bet we will be passionate about it! One of the most…

Many have criticized Breath of the Wild for being more of a concept game rather than a plot-driven adventure like past Zelda games, with some describing the open world as an empty shell rather than a dynamic place. Whether that critique is fair or not, modder Waikuteru has used that “empty shell” to bring back some of the series’ most iconic places. The modder recently dropped two new projects, adding Skyward Sword’s legendary Sandship and Ocarina of Time’s fabled Lon Lon Ranch…

The Legend of Zelda and Castlevania are two of the most iconic franchises in videos games. Each series has produced genre defining games throughout the past thirty years, though the Zelda series has been much healthier in the past decade. One theme that connects these two franchises is great music, with both franchises featuring a plethora of tunes that fans almost instantly recognize. This fascinating arrangement by GLASYS combines songs from both The Legend of Zelda and Castlevania franchises. The remix…

Have you ever seen one of those impressive fan animated recreations of iconic Zelda scenes? Or have you seen really incredible Lord of the Rings-esque cinematography used in a Zelda fan film? Well, this is a little different than any of those. This animated summary of Ocarina of Time by TerminalMontage is an incredibly humorous and wrought with references to a bevy of Zelda troupes. The video encompasses only the child portion of the game, ending when Ganondorf enters the Temple…

If you’ve never researched color psychology or color personalities, doing so is a great way to spend an afternoon. In short, these concepts focus on how particular colors can influence your mood or reveal bits about your personality. Ever wonder why most fast food companies use reds and yellows? That’s color psychology in action. Do you always wear the Zora Tunic in Ocarina of Time? Well, that might be your color personality in action. Surprisingly, for being the mark of a hero,…

What Is a Randomizer? Take a moment to log into Twitch and search your favorite Zelda game. Go on, I’ll wait right here for you to come back… Finished? Odds are that within that search, you saw a mix of regular, “vanilla” game playthroughs, as well as several randomizers. Click on one of the randomizers, and if you’re not familiar with how it works, you might find yourself confused. You could happen upon a streamer who has been live for…
