I’m a sucker for synthesizers. Something about their electronic goodness awakens the deepest parts of my soul, making it impossible to do anything but appreciate. This electronic cover of A Link to the Past‘s Dark World theme by GLASYS perfectly captures the sounds and feelings I love most about that genre of music, delivering a solid arrangement that any Zelda fan can groove to. Performed using the Prophet X synthesizer and the appropriately named “Dark World” reverb pedal, this bumpin’…

If there is one thing that I love about The Legend of Zelda, it’s the lore that comes with it. It’s so interesting to learn about the history involved with power, wisdom and courage, and I’m always screaming out for more information on the characters within the series. In particular, I feel that the Goddess of the Sands deserves a little more attention. I want to know her history! Did her power match that of the Goddess Hylia? How important was her…

The Wind Waker is perhaps one of the most popular Zelda titles, and its story continues to intrigue and fascinate us. So much so that Zeltik on YouTube has gone in depth and created a fantastic video delving into not just the lore of The Wind Waker, but also that of the Triforce and the Golden Goddesses. Complete with matching visuals and a pretty neat voice, this latest video in Zeltik’s Links to the Past series is quite the treat. Whether you’re…

Ocarina of Time had a lot of fun characters. Take Talon for example. He’s an obvious reference to Mario who you have to wake up with a roaring cucco when first meeting him. Between his hilarious shocked noises and his offering of his daughter as a potential date for Link as a joke, Talon is just plain fun. With this in mind, we want to pit two of the more beloved characters from Ocarina against one another. Unlike the Cave of…

I’m one of those people that love to stream game music while working at the computer. Tunes from video games help to motivate my creative juices while remaining mostly unobtrusive as they bleed into the background. And while a frantic battle theme or punchy boss theme may come through my speakers sometimes, I tend to enjoy the more subdued tracks while I work. For the Zelda fans that, like me, enjoy a chill soundtrack for their day-to-day life, a recent…

The New Year is almost upon us! A time of celebration, a time of reflection, and sometimes a wild night of running wild through Hyrule. Though celebrations may vary, many take this time to not just look back upon the year, but to also make resolutions about the future. Some might change a habit while others will set goals to achieve throughout the next three hundred and sixty-five days. But what if we weren’t the only ones? Our favorite Zelda characters…

From its appearance, to its music, to its layout, the Overworld of 1986’s The Legend of Zelda is instantly recognizable to a generation of gamers. Many Zelda fans stake claim to the fact that they spent hours exploring every corner, every nook and cranny, of this 8-bit map. And some of us can still effortlessly navigate those familiar screens to this day. For those looking for a way to see the world of the original Legend of Zelda from a…
