When first playing Breath of the Wild the scope, beauty, and openness of the world is quite impressive and impactful as you explore everything around you. Within short order, you’ll probably come across a familiar face, or 900, if you’ve played The Wind Waker. Koroks are small forest spirits that, according to The Wind Waker, are the evolution of the Kokiri species introduced in Ocarina of Time and can be found anywhere and everywhere in Breath of the Wild. At first, these creatures can seem…

Jabu Jabu’s Belly is a pretty straightforward dungeon in Ocarina of Time. Armed with your sword, shield, slingshot, and eventually boomerang, you wouldn’t have much of a hard time getting through it. In the latest campaign of Zelda Warfare, Mases and I decided we needed to show some love to some of the items you wouldn’t normally use while inside Jabu Jabu. This created some pretty fun situations, and was one of my favorite times playing this dungeon. But it’s not all just…

The notion of Zelda having an alter ego to adopt and a new persona as a form of protection became a recurring idea in Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker through the popular Sheik and Tetra, and even Twilight Princess had scrapped designs for Sheik as well. Despite simply being alter egos for Zelda, Tetra and Sheik are among some of the strongest, most celebrated female characters in the series as a result of their personality or combat prowess. While these characters…

In the speedrunning community, Awesome Games Done Quick is something of a Superbowl. The week-long marathon, benefiting the Prevent Cancer Foundation, features runners from all around the world as they showcase the skips, glitches, and exploits that allow them to finish our favorite games as quickly as possible. This year’s event, which began yesterday and runs until Saturday, has a ton of fun in store, not the least of which being a handful of Zelda speedruns. Awesome Games Done Quick…

Ocarina of Time was among one of the first Zelda games I played on the Nintendo 64, and seeing the casting animation for Din’s Fire the first time was a really cool experience. The game incorporated the magic spells into the narrative and puzzles sparingly, but their practicality was so great that I found myself using them quite often throughout my play through, and I looked forward to seeing more variety in later installments. But while the series has expanded…

We are making our first march down Zora’s River in the newest campaign of Zelda Warfare, our Ocarina of Time 3D race. This cucco incursion has Mases and I collecting some more gold skulltulas and heart pieces, as well as us composing our very own Scarecrow’s Song. No campaign would be complete without us supporting the local economy, so we also buy and plant some magic beans. Who will be the first to be devoured by Lord Jabu Jabu? Check out…

The market has been prepared for massacre! It is the start of a new year and Mases and I are celebrating the only way we know how: bombchu bowling. Of course, that is not all we get up to in the most recent campaign of Zelda Warfare. We also make our first foray into the business of mask salesmanship, acquire Din’s fire, and help a lost puppy find his way home. It is truly heartwarming. Who are you rooting for?…

Things are starting to heat up in the most recent campaign of Zelda Warfare, our Ocarina of Time 3D race! This time around, Mases and I get our first glimpse of Death Mountain’s crater, race to the top of the mountain to get our first gift of magic from the Great Fairy, as well as get a nice little Bomb Bag upgrade in Goron City. The real highlight of this race is Dampe’s Heart-Pounding Grave Digging Tour. The RNG is truly…

Ganondorf has been a staple of the Zelda series since its inception and as such has had many incarnations over time. He also happens to be a boss or final boss of any Zelda game he appears in. With this in mind, let’s explore who this guy is and why he’s so important. As a man, Ganondorf himself makes his first physical appearance in Ocarina of Time as a manifestation of the curse Demise lays upon Zelda and Link. Known by the moniker…

In the newest campaign of Zelda Warfare, our race of Ocarina of Time 3D, Mases and I could not wait to bomb King Dodongo. We dive deep into Dodongo’s Cavern and attempt another swordless run while trying to keep our Deku shields intact. As always, we choose to support the Deku scrub economy, and buy a bunch of overpriced items. Can Mases start to close up the gap between us? You are going to have to check out the race for…
