Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018:

Category: Skyward Sword

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 discuss Ocarina of Time, The Minish Cap, Breath of the Wild, and Skyward Sword. What do you think of our list? How would you have ranked these games?…

Throughout the Zelda games, Link has had the opportunity to don outfits of different colors and and styles, allowing the player to enjoy the various benefits and in some instances, negative effects that can influence the hero’s adventures in Hyrule. There are armor sets, like the Magic Armor from Twilight Princess, which makes the wearer invulnerable while draining rupees from their wallet, and tunics from Ocarina of Time that provide heat resistance and the ability to breathe under water. There is mail from A…

As some of you might have heard, today marks the beginning of what can only be described as the biggest Zelda event of the year – the Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018. Packed to the brim with exciting content, nail biting races, and comically failed glitches and exploits, you do not want to miss it. While the team involved with the event might brush it off as a bit of fun (and an excellent way to raise money for charity), an underlying tension…

The Legend of Zelda has gone through many different art styles in the past 30 years. From pixelated to state of the art HD cell shading, Link has pretty much been through it all. Now, some fans love the charming bright colours of The Wind Waker, others, the gritty landscape of Twilight Princess, and some prefer Skyward Sword, a combination of the two. Now the question for Nintendo is “Where do we go next?” I only recently found The Legend of Zelda manga, with the release of the…

Since the release of the first title in The Legend of Zelda franchise, Nintendo has worked hard to create an immersive experience for fans of the series. As each sequel or prequel (as the timeline dictates) is designed, players have had the opportunity to explore not only better graphics but different methods of actual gameplay throughout the series. When the Nintendo 64 hit the shelves, gamers had the opportunity to use the analog stick to direct Link on his adventures throughout Hyrule…

Since not everyone can be like the Sheikah Monks and slow down the aging process through meditation, the best result most can hope for is deep relaxation. An easy way for Zelda fans to reach a state of zen is to lose themselves in this new orchestrated meditation track “A Vision of Fi.” Arranged by Ben Emberley — a composer and arranger for The Symphony of the Goddesses — the song focuses around Fi’s everpresence in Link’s adventures as part…

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…

The Legend of Zelda. We all love it. That’s why we’re here. But let’s be honest, it’s not always perfect. While Nintendo is legendary for the level of polish and painstaking care it puts into The Legend of Zelda games, not everything always comes out perfectly. We are all entitled to express some of our frustrations with a game, no matter how much we love the Zelda series. Whether it is the befuddling mess that is dowsing in Skyward Sword (seriously Skyward…

It’s safe to say that most of The Legend of Zelda fans have a favorite NPC (non-player character) in the franchise. This is usually because Nintendo have done such a great job at making the characters in the series so memorable that they leave a lasting impression on the player. Throughout the games, fans have seen characters with stronger personalities, such as Princess Ruto from Ocarina of Time, and Groose from Skyward Sword. We have also seen those with a milder tone, such as…
