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…

Back in the days before the Sheikah Slate was invented, Link had to rely on a number of interesting and unique gadgets to save Hyrule. Remember flying over a gap with the Hookshot and landing on that ‘just out of reach’ platform for the first time? The Eye of Truth was helpful to see the invisible. The Rod of Seasons had its merits as well when solving puzzles. But the Sheikah Slate has revolutionized solving puzzles inside the shrines of…

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…

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…

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…
