Despite the critical success and love Wind Waker has received over the years, its sequels aren’t regarded with much fondness. While Phantom Hourglass receives more criticism (for the right reasons, if we’re being honest), Spirit Tracks seemed to do better, but not by much. I played Spirit Tracks quite a bit, and made it through a decent chunk of the game, but not because of the story or characters. The only thing I was remotely interested in was rescuing bunnies for the…

The evolution of storytelling in video games has been both a gradual and explosive process over the past thirty years. Older games tended to have simplistic stories at best, while games in the present tend to have sweeping, cinematic tales that span the multimedia spectrum. The Zelda series since its inception has toed the line in between the two extremes. For fans though, Zelda‘s story has been a hotly contested topic even before the controversial introduction of the timeline. Today, we’re debating two…

The Legend of Zelda is a series that is typically centered on exploration of a natural and magical world with medieval settings. Despite this, the franchise will occasionally bring technology of one form or another into its midst. Some aspects make more sense than others. For example, the fact that some versions of Hyrule Castle have a drawbridge with a pulley system set up. In the past of the franchise, however, certain things have appeared that blur the line of…

Our Best Dungeon tournament continues with two new titles. As Death Mountain and Eagle’s Tower duke it out in yesterday’s poll, the winning dungeons of Spirit Tracks and Skyward Sword step into the fray. Tower of Spirits (Spirit Tracks) Vs. Ancient Cistern (Skyward Sword) In a very smart move, the Zelda team took complaints aimed at Phantom Hourglass‘s Temple of the Ocean King to heart when constructing its successor in Spirit Tracks. Where the Ocean King’s temple’s layout was seen…

Link’s train has reached the station, ready to take us to the latest stop on our tournament. The Ghost Ship from Phantom Hourglass took the lead yesterday, and there’s still more Nintendo DS love to share today. Spirit Tracks, a personal favorite of mine, is ready for your votes. What is the Best Dungeon in Spirit Tracks? Phantom Hourglass may not have been a perfect game, but Nintendo took all they learned from the making of that game to craft…

Bulblins have only appeared in 2 games to date: the aforementioned Twilight Princess and Spirit Tracks. And their origin is quite the mystery, as they appear relatively late in the Zelda timeline and with no given origin. Enter Dr.Wily, a YouTuber who has decided to give his own take on how the Bulblins came to be, based on of their design as well…

The Legend of Zelda is one of the oldest video game series in existence. With more than three decades under his belt, Link sets out to save the world from evil time and time again. These three decades have seen a fairly large amount of entries, each spanning a unique story and a spectacular gameplay. After these three decades, it’s only fair to want to look back at what the Zelda series has accomplished. This is what today’s video, made by YouTuber beatdownboogie,…
