Zelda’s representation in the Smash roster is kept relatively low frills, sticking with each of the Triforce’s champions, with Link padding it out with three of his incarnations. But whether or not Zelda is well represented in the Smash roster is a debate for another day. What definitely is well showcased are the realms and locales of Hyrule, spanning everywhere from Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess to Skyward Sword and the most recent stage addition, Great Plateau Tower from…

Zelda Warfare is our series in which Mases and Gooey race The Wind Waker HD on hero mode in segmented sections. Each episode, or campaign, is worth a point. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game has won the war! Each time we add a special “Rule of Engagement” or more to shake things up even more. Tonight there’s gonna be a jailbreak! We are busting Makar out and are taking on the rest of the…

The Legend of Zelda has my favorite end credits sequences in video games and movies. Unlike most movies where I walk out a minute or two after the film is over, I always watch staff rolls in Zelda games right to the very end. Usually, these game’s credits/staff rolls include a new musical composition (or a combination of multiple themes arranged especially for the occasion) and the video/visual sequence take you on a trip through the different locations you have traveled…

Title theme songs in Zelda games are an important component of establishing each game’s overall tone and experience, and many of the songs are recurring tunes that accompany the narrative as well. The Wind Waker’s title theme song is one of my favorites because, not only are the sweeping camera angles and music excellent, but the songs play an important part in the story as well. It conveys the wide world The Wind Waker presented while also reinforcing the importance…

Zelda Month has come and gone much too quickly. But for those who might’ve missed it, PeanutButterGamer (PBG) released his final video for the month just over a week ago. PGB, who started Zelda Month in 2011, puts a twist on his traditional videos with a Zelda product review. In the video, he takes some of the most interesting Zelda items from eBay and, in usual PBG spirit, reviews them with a kooky flair and comical hijinks. Give it a…

The title theme of The Wind Waker is an absolutely magical piece of music. Inspired by traditional Irish music, the theme makes excellent use of strings and harps to capture the freedom and whimsy of Link’s seafaring adventure. Admittedly, as great as it is, I never thought this tune was versatile enough to exist beyond its original genre. But count me proven wrong, because musician Ace Waters has released an amazing synth cover of The Wind Waker‘s title theme that…

Ladies and gentleman, my name is Kristen. Rosario. And I am your host for the CAVE OF TRIALS! Now before I give you an update on the SMASH ULTIMATE FANTASMIC HOLIDAY TOURNAMENT, I want to take a look at how our Smash Bros. Exhibition Match went between Young Link and King DeDeDe. Considering what site I am a part of, it should come as no surprise that the winner is Young Link! In what I thought was going to be…

Fire is one of the key elements of human culture. It is often considered one of the most important discoveries in human history. The element of fire is also a key part of myths and literature, sometimes representing passion, compulsion, and creativity. Fire plays key roles in the classic Greek myth of Prometheus, as well as medieval classics like Dante’s The Divine Comedy. Keeping this in mind, let’s talk about the hottest places in Hyrule! These are the dungeons that…
