Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018:

Category: The Wind Waker

Youtuber Edible Incredible recently released a video theorizing the potential outcomes of Ganondorf’s wish, had it not been interrupted during the Era of the Great Sea. The theorist begins by discussing whether Ganondorf would have made the decision to change between his beast form and human form, or whether his obtaining the complete Triforce would have caused him to remain in the form of Ganon. Edible Incredible describes how in Ocarina of Time, Ganondorf used the Triforce of Power to become Ganon…

Ganondorf. You know him. You’ve fought him. Constantly portrayed as the King of Thieves, the Dark Lord, so many monikers instilling fear, and you may have even come to love him as such. Trademarked by the Triforce of Power and that deep rumbling laugh that lets Link know he’s in for a fight of the ages, Ganondorf is one of the most iconic characters of the Zelda series. Yet he’s always been the enemy, and the one we know, in the end,…

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…

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…

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 Twilight Princess, Phantom Hourglass, Link’s Awakening, and The Wind Waker. What do you think of our list? How would you have ranked these games? Stay tuned because over…

There are so many wonderful and brilliant medleys of Zelda songs, but how many of them are on the accordion? This spectacular medley by The Accordion Guy traces the long and rich musical history of the Zelda series by including songs from A Link to the Past through The Wind Waker. The accordion wonderfully captures the spirit of adventure that first made me fall in love with the Legend of Zelda series when I was but a wee lad. Not…

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is nearly 16 years old (makes you feel old, huh?), but it doesn’t mean that there aren’t new things to discover and theorize about. Take this video for example, where Austin from Game Theorists tackles the ecological effect of the titular conductor’s baton and the implications of its use. If you haven’t noticed by the thumbnail, the results are disastrous. Austin puts a few uses to the test, mainly the Song of Passing and…

I must say that out of the many The Legend Of Zelda games out there, The Wind Waker holds a dear spot in my heart, and will probably be one of my favorites for a long time. I know there’s a couple people that despise the game for whatever reasons, and sure, it’s certainly not the best out there. And also true, traversing the Great Sea got kind of boring and a bit monotonous after awhile. But that aside, I…

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…

The Zelda Dungeon Marathon is fast approaching. With such a short time left until we begin raising money for Extra Life, Gooey and Mases are here to give a preview of what is to come for this year. The Zelda Dungeon Marathon will run from July 14th through July 20th. The ZD team will be playing through all of the Zelda titles and a ton of the side games. ZD is supporting Extra Life and will be live streaming on…
