If I could say one thing about the Zelda fanbase, it’s that we’re an opinionated lot.  We like to discuss the finer details of the series, and we certainly don’t shy away from a debate, especially when our opinion isn’t very popular.  Whether we’re talking about our favorite Zelda title, the next upcoming game, or all that’s in between, we’ll tell you exactly how we feel, and you can bet we will be passionate about it! One of the most…

Many have criticized Breath of the Wild for being more of a concept game rather than a plot-driven adventure like past Zelda games, with some describing the open world as an empty shell rather than a dynamic place. Whether that critique is fair or not, modder Waikuteru has used that “empty shell” to bring back some of the series’ most iconic places. The modder recently dropped two new projects, adding Skyward Sword’s legendary Sandship and Ocarina of Time’s fabled Lon Lon Ranch…

You know the adage, “never judge a book by its cover” — does that apply to games too? In my opinion it does! I’m not strictly talking about the box art of a game, but more like the promotional art and the game’s trailer. A lot of people make first opinions about a game based upon what they see before making their purchase. So, does the visual style of a Zelda game determine whether you’ll play it or not? Or…

The Legend of Zelda series is about to celebrate its thirty fifth anniversary in 2021. The long running series has left a huge mark on gaming. Because of its long and continued excellence, the series has multiple generations of diverse fans from across the world. The community surrounding the series has developed a great deal in the past thirty years, and it is amazing to see how the series and its fan base have grown. I’ve been an avid Zelda…

Skyward Sword has one of the most underrated soundtracks in the Zelda series. The game’s soundtrack has a wealth of great music, including “Fi’s Theme”, which stands out as one of the best songs in the soundtrack. While the robotic sword spirit wasn’t well received from a gameplay perspective, her story has some wonderfully emotional moments. Fi’s final goodbye, augmented with a moving version “Fi’s Theme” that plays over the cutscene, is one of the most emotional moments in the…

Two games that I always really enjoyed playing were The Wind Waker and Skyward Sword. These were not necessarily the most original games from a gameplay perspective, but both titles had great characters and stories that I fell in love with. Another thing the two games had in common were intriguing and memorable settings. The Wind Waker took place on The Great Sea, a massive ocean filled with mysterious islands, fearsome sea monsters, and secrets galore. Skyward Sword had its…

We all know the standard spread of items that typically appear in Link’s arsenal. Items like the bow and bombs have been a staple since The Legend of Zelda in 1986. The Hookshot, first introduced in A Link to the Past, is an item that has been has been repurposed again and again to take on different names like the Longshot in Ocarina of Time or the Double Clawshots in Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword. From hammers to boomerangs to ocarinas (sometimes…

It is the iconic relic of the Zelda series, from the very beginning symbolizing the balance of courage, wisdom, and power. Although shown intact in games such as Skyward Sword and The Wind Waker, the Triforce is commonly split among three people, each of them a paragon of one particular trait. Ocarina of Time, in particular, explained the splitting of the Triforce as a result of Ganondorf being able to access it in the Sacred Realm. Because he touched it with his…

Sunrise and sunsets are among the most beautiful sights that the natural world has to offer. The transitions between night and day (and vice versa) include some of the most evocative mixes of colors in nature. In countless different societies, these events have cultural and spiritual significance, sometimes representing concepts like life, death, and rebirth. When creating worlds in films and games, sunrises and sunsets have retained their mythic significance and immense beauty. For example, the binary sunset in the…
