Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Category: Skyward Sword

The Legend of Zelda is full of emotional moments that the player can immerse themselves in. It’s a series where friendships blossom, promises are made and good-byes are heart-felt. But although there are many happy moments in the series, there are also many sad moments too. Some of the more emotional moments in the Zelda series might be when Midna says good-bye to Link forever, in Twilight Princess. Or when Zelda seals herself in sleep during Skyward Sword, and Link’s devastation…

Hot on the trail of their freshman album, Shadow and Steel, Zelda tribute metal band Master Sword is ready to begin recording their newest album, The Final Door. They can’t do it alone, however. In order to help make their next album a reality, the band has launched a new Kickstarter campaign The Kickstarter has a goal of $16,000, and the band has already raised almost $6,000 (at the time of writing) with just 84 backers. There are a variety of…

Remakes are all the rage in the current video game landscape. Many highly popular games are being remade, and some good examples include Sony and Bluepoint’s Shadow of the Colossus remake or Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 remake. One game that I think would benefit most from a complete overhaul is Skyward Sword. In my opinion, this game has one of the best stories in the Zelda series but has some distracting flaws. A “from the ground up” remake could…

Throughout Skyward Sword, Link meets many surface dwelling allies. One of these allies is a race of burrowing moles who help us progress through the Earth Temple, and even help us escape the Bokoblin Base on our return to Eldin. After this, though, we don’t really see them again, in game, or in any other title. The question is, what happened to them? Of course, we’re not going to get any solid answers from Nintendo, so we’ll have to make do…

The best game, the worst game, the game that falls somewhere in the swampy middle– how do we pick? We rank them of course! Through carefully calculated algorithms, we can once and for all determine the greatest Zelda game of all time. All we have to do is… On second thought, instead of using math, let’s just stick pictures of them on a list and say one is better. Tier rankings are everywhere right now. I saw one for which…

Everyone here has been around the block with the Zelda series a time or two, but did you know that there are some errors in the different Zelda games? The YouTube channel DidYouKnowGaming? delved into some of these mistakes. My favorite mistake mentioned is that the Thunder Helm in Breath of the Wild can be permanently lost if Link doesn’t have any armor slots left to hold it. This is one that I never knew about, but I’m certainly glad…

Amidst the news on Cadence of Hyrule, Link’s Awakening, and the sequel to Breath of the Wild, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has shed some light on a game fans have long dreamed of. When asked by GameInformer about the possibility of a Skyward Sword remake without the need for motion controls, Aonuma was quick to shut the idea down. “So you’re saying control it all with buttons? That’s a little hard! I think it might be close to impossible!” Those hoping for new life…

Yet again, it’s that time of the year, folks. E3 — gaming’s annual equivalent to Christmas morning — is nearly upon us. Honestly, it’s hard to believe that it’s already been three years since I played Breath of the Wild at E3 2016. As Nintendo’s lone offering on that year’s show floor, the game was presented as if it were an amusement park ride — life-sized Guardians and all. It’s an experience I’ll never forget, and a wonderful first impression…

Welcome back to your bi-weekly installment of everything Zelda speedrunning related. Remember when I opened the last article by stating that Skyward Sword was finally broken? Well, in true Zelda speedrunning style, I’m happy to report that I was wrong, and that it’s now completely broken. More on that in Now Playing, as well as the results of the Ocarina of Time category name change vote, and a look at some sequence breaking in Twilight Princess in this week’s Glitch Exhibition!   Now Playing As I mentioned above, both a further discovery…

WE ARE SO CLOSE to the biggest gaming extravaganza of the year! E3 may seem a bit smaller than usual this year, but we’re still stoked to see what the Big N has up their sleeves! In the spirit of the industries biggest conference of the year, we go back and take a look at Nintendo’s best and worst offerings at the big show over the years. Everything from Wii Music to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Breath of the Wild…
