Category: Oracle of Ages

The two hand-held companion Zelda entries, Oracle of Seasons and Ages, are an intricate tale woven across the two games. However, they each offer a large divergence of paths, something not common in Zelda games. This is owing to the three different animals that Link encounters in his adventures in Labrynna and Holodrum: Ricky, Dimitri, and Moosh. Ricky is a large kangaroo with boxing gloves and a stylish hairdo, so you know he means business! He also has the ability to jump extremely high with Link…

The land of Hyrule has often had to call upon Link for protection, and our hero has always responded willingly to it’s call.  Saving the world must be a tough job, but luckily, Link has often had a companion to help him shoulder the burden. Some of Link’s partners have come in the forms of fairies and spirits, and others in the form of a talking boat or a hat.  Animals have also made an extremely useful appearance, most notably…

Becoming a staple in the Zelda series isn’t as difficult as you might think. Sure, swords and shields are obvious choices for each game. But a hand in a toilet? A grammatically incorrect error? You can bet your bottom dollar they’ll be popping up until the end of time. Compared to some of these recurring features, Trading Quests have been around for quite a while. First appearing in Link’s Awakening, they’ve appeared on and off throughout the series. Of course, they’re usually optional,…

There are plenty of things to love or hate about Breath of the Wild, but whatever your beefs and bouquets are with this monolith of a game, there is certainly something for everybody. Sure, us fans squabble over weapon durability, whether or not the weather is actually that big of a hindrance, or if horse travel is really worth it. But there’s one thing that every Zelda fan agrees on: Hestu’s Gift is a giant load of crap. Well… everyone, that is,…

The trading sequence side quest is one of the oldest traditions in the Zelda series. These optional quest lines ask Link to travel the vast game world, meet a diverse cast of characters, and make a series of bizarre trades until he finally gets his hands on something valuable. Our hero may start with something as mundane as a clock; but after a few trades and a bit of leg work, he may end up with a legendary blade. From…

Andy and Taylor are back taking in a bunch of fan questions. Should Nintendo remake the Oracle games? What about making that long rumored third game? Which Zelda has the best ending? Did Breath of the Wild’s high tech take away from the fantasy element? And do we actually believe the rumors of another Zelda game coming out in 2019? This weeks show is a light and breezy one, full of fun! You won’t wanna miss it! Podbean | iTunes…

Love him or hate him, you cannot deny that Tingle has a certain mystique about him. What is it about this spandex-clad, rosy-cheeked, fairy obsessed gentleman that we just can’t get enough of? Is it the way he helps us navigate in Majora’s Mask? Those spellbinding magic words he created himself? Perhaps it’s that the long march of time makes us relate to him more and more with each passing year? Despite his numerous appearances—including the amazing Tingle-centric trio of games that…

All of the talk of the upcoming Link’s Awakening remake has got everyone going wild! Though it’s not going to be released until later this year, people have been asking us what we think is next. While it is way to early to actually expect anything else obviously, it is fun to think about. In our newest entry into our Hyrule Compendium series, Mases and I discuss what a lot of people have asked us: Will Nintendo ever remake Oracle…

For better or worse, we’ve seen a lot of classic Zelda games get remakes over the years, or receive some sort of spiritual sequel. From A Link to the Past getting a revamped 3DS outing in A Link Between Worlds, to The Wind Waker HD, and even to the duo of 3DS titles that brought the N64 classics to the forefront for a contemporary audience. Let’s just say it’s something Nintendo likes to do a lot. And why not? These are gleaming games,…
