What’s most rewarding about the video games we love and play is that they bring us a rather unique form of comfort. They can help us out after a long and stressful day of work, and they can bring simple joy to those who need it the most. While I’m talking more about mental comfort, there are times when video games can be a unique form of physical comfort as well. That’s what tavingtoncrafts on Etsy is aiming to accomplish…

Buckle in get ready for storytime! We explore all the rumors and whispers surrounding what may be the most high profile game Nintendo never made  The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Secrets! Did this game really use a hourglass to control time? What about having different tunics for light and dark? What was this supposed to play like?

The Zelda franchise is famous for many things, be it a hero clad in green, a quest to obtain the Triforce, or an enticing sense of adventure.  There are so many amazing recurring themes in these games and each one stands out for its own reason.  But if there is one predominant recurring element in Zelda games, it’s got to be time travel. When I think of time travel in gaming, my mind goes straight to Ocarina of Time.  I…

I can’t believe it’s that time already, but here we are: it’s time for Zelda Dungeon’s 2019 Edition of the Best. Zelda. Ever! Two Zelda games were released this year — one a remake, and one a spinoff — but maybe most crucially, the next mainline installment of the series was teased at E3 when Nintendo revealed the sequel to Breath of the Wild was to be released! Exciting times are ahead for Zelda fans no doubt, but let’s focus…

When Nintendo wanted to port the original Legend of Zelda to the Game Boy Color, it turned to Capcom’s Flagship development team to get the job done. A recent Inside Gaming video delved into the many snags this Zelda port deal hit during development. It also discusses how, after making some tough decisions to fulfill its agreement with Nintendo, Flagship went on to produce some of the series’ most unique titles: Oracle of Seasons, Oracle of Ages, and The Minish…

Halloween is a time for snuggling in with some popcorn and candy, a few good friends, and watching people make terrible mistakes leading to their demise. I’m talking about watching scary movies where the characters almost always do the wrong thing at the wrong time, and the big bad guy catches and kills them in some grizzly fashion.  But what if there were a bunch of Zelda characters in that scenario?  How do you think they’d fare? Now for this…

When one typically thinks of the Zelda franchise, they probably think of the first game in the series that they played, their overall favorite Zelda game, or one of the immensely-popular 3D titles. Unfortunately, several solid games are often overlooked. Perhaps the most neglected ones are the Oracle games, Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons, and the DS titles, Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. But which set of games is more underrated? Both sets seem to be among the least-played Zelda games for some reason,…

I’ve covered The Legend of Zelda news for almost five years now, and in that time, I’ve seen more rumors than I can possibly hope to count. Something about Nintendo’s tentpole fantasy series attracts off-the-wall predictions, unverified leaks, and outright hoaxes, as fans clamor for and cling to any new information on the next Zelda adventure. And that’s one reason why this job is so much fun! Seeing the passion of the fanbase explode with each new release cycle fuels…

Nefarious, flagrant femmes have peppered The Legend of Zelda series since the very beginning.  They are foils to the stoic singularity that is Ganon’s overwhelming, sovereign presence. A flip side, a different flavor of evil, spanning his pair of broom-riding, hook-nosed Gerudo Moms to the flamboyant, murderous mages Ghirahim and Yuga; feminine energies have powered the sorcery which Link fends off time and time again. Arguably, the first feminine villain in the Zelda series was Veran from Oracle of Ages,…
