Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018:

Category: Oracle of Seasons

Welcome to a post-Summer Games Done Quick world. This week, I’ll be re-capping all seven Zelda runs featured at the event, as well as chatting to a Skyward Sword runner and bingo player. So sit back and relax after what was likely a very stressful week of watching a single Twitch stream non-stop (what do you mean ‘that was just me’?).   Now Playing This week saw possibly the biggest speedrunning event of the year: Summer Games Done Quick 2018, a…

Over the course of this four part series, Mases and Gooey will discuss and rank all of the single player games in the main Legend of Zelda series. Each episode we will pick four games at random and we must come to an agreement on where it will be placed on our list! In this episode we start off with Spirit Tracks, Zelda II, Oracle of Ages, and Oracle of Seasons. What do you think of our list? How would…

Here at Zelda Dungeon, we have all sorts of tips, trick, bestiaries, item lists and comprehensive walkthroughs. Believe it or not, there used to be a time when things like the internet did not exist. Everything a person learned about a Zelda game all came through either word of mouth, the Nintendo Power magazine, or from buying a player’s guide. Now imagine you lived in this time, had no friends who liked Zelda as much as you, and you couldn’t afford a guide book. Which Zelda game,…

The “Song of Storms” is a simple tune woven throughout the Zelda series, yet playing it can have some powerful effects. It’s a song to make the windmill go faster and drain the well in Kakariko Village, to return the Ikana River’s flow, to call forth rain and fairies, and to make the seeds grow. It’s a song to… put you to sleep? Musician and avid Let’s Player Celestial Fury may have found a way to do just that, and friends, that’s not…

It was in Breath of the Wild that we were first introduced to the race of Leviathans, a species of giant whale-like creatures. Breath of the Wild features three Leviathans, each speculated to have been killed by a different cataclysmic event, a skeleton in the Gerudo Desert killed by prolonged drought, one in the Hebra Mountains killed by a severe ice age, and the third in the Eldin Mountains killed by a volcanic eruption. This, however, is not the first appearance of these…

With the release of Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition on the Switch and the new outfits and entire cast featured in the game, it got me thinking about the possibilities of including more DLC characters that weren’t in any of the previous installments for Hyrule Warriors. While the Oracles Nayru and Din would be cool editions to represent the Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons games, I think my first choice for entirely new characters would be the Golden Goddesses….

Zelda Dungeon had a great marathon in 2017, and 2018 is shaping up to be an even bigger event! We have a big roster of Zelda Dungeon staff members from previous marathons as well as an injection of new talent this year. If you have a favorite ZD team member you’d like to follow along during the marathon, check out what games they will be playing at the marathon this year! Be sure to check us out on our Twitch…

The My Nintendo Rewards system has been a mixed bag ever since replacing the old Club Nintendo program. That’s not to stay it still isn’t worth shopping around with, as there can be some good deals lurking around. Take Zelda for instance, as this month there is a whole goodie bag’s worth of deals thanks to the rewards program. With the upcoming U.S. release of Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, the Big N has decided to make May all about Zelda,…

With the sunny season just around the corner, the folks over at Games Done Quick have just recently released the schedule of games (Zelda included) to be featured in this year’s Summer Games Done Quick. For those who don’t know, GDQ is made up of two dedicated and varied groups of speed runners who twice a year run a week-long exhibition charity stream. The Summer edition of the charity drive helps raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders)….

The Zelda series primarily takes place in the ever-changing landscape of Hyrule, although there are notable instances where Link explores new worlds. From the apocalyptic Termina in Majora’s Mask to the Dark World in A Link to the Past and its sequel, A Link Between Worlds, Holodrum and Labrynna in Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, and even the surreal Koholint Island in Link’s Awakening, an alternate setting has often proven to be a welcome change of pace. I’ve…
