The de-make is a burgeoning genre in the world of fan games. These unique projects take an established video game title, usually one from a long-running series, and re-imagine it with the graphics and gameplay of older or less powerful hardware. A Nintendo 64 game could be re-imagined as an NES or Game Boy title, or a GameCube game could be re-imagined as a Super NES or Game Boy Advance title. With the recent release of high-profile de-makes like Prime…

Mases and Gooey are back at it again; this latest episode of Zelda Warfare features the Temple of Time from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The pair have been making their way through the game, completing various dungeons and mini-game challenges. Gooey currently leads the competition with 11 wins to Mases’ 7. For this competition, the rules of engagement are simple: players may only use the hidden skills for combat, along with the Lamp, Hookshot, Spinner, Slingshot, and Dominion Rod. While…

This week for the show, we do what we always do when there’s nothing particularly pressing to talk about: steal the great ideas of our Zelda Dungeon writing team and answer some of their Daily Debates! Tune in and hear our two cents on topics like: is Breath of the Wild 2 losing anticipation? Which Zelda game offers the most replay value? Should the series introduce post game content? Would we name a kid after a Zelda character? Which game…

The Magic Meter is a recurring element in the Zelda series, granting Link special abilities that made gameplay feel so much more exciting.  It made its first rather basic appearance in The Adventure of Link but became more of a staple in later 3D games, with its final appearance in The Wind Waker.  I’ve often wondered why the Magic Meter wasn’t carried over to Twilight Princess, especially because it seemed like such a natural part of the series during the…

Throughout the years, the Zelda series has taught me a lot about what I value in a video game boss. For as much as I enjoy overcoming tough-as-nails opponents, there’s something to be said about the pure, unbridled “cool factor” of many Zelda bosses. Not to suggest the series doesn’t have its fair share of challenging foes, but I’ve found that most of my favorites rank so highly for reasons beyond difficulty. Simply put, they’re just so fun to take…

I know what you’re probably thinking: Link, of course! But brave as that boy is, he is known to take some detours on the way to helping others. The Zelda series has introduced us to many a kind, skilled soul who may be able to lend a hand in an emergency situation. The question becomes, who is the ideal emergency contact? When things go wrong and you need support, who can you count on from our series’ vast cast of…

I’ve made it no secret here at the site that I have an undying love and appreciation for Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, the black sheep of the franchise. A departure from the formula established by its predecessor, Zelda II introduced a bevy of mechanics all its own — some that would see longevity throughout the franchise, and others that would be abandoned. Advanced combat mechanics such as the downward stab would return in entries like Twilight Princess, whereas the inclusion…

Twilight Princess is one of my favorite Zelda games of all time. It has excellent hero’s journey story, wonderful music, and memorable characters. Since the game released in 2006, many fans and critics have noted some of the game’s similarities to 1998’s Ocarina of Time. Twilight Princess brought players back to some of the same locations seen in Ocarina of Time and although places like Kakariko Village, Hyrule Castle Town, and Lake Hylia have been revised and expanded, there is…

The cover art for Volume 9 of the Twilight Princess manga has been revealed! Publisher Viz Media has also announced that the English edition of the upcoming volume — the Japanese edition released last December — will be releasing on September 14th. Leading on from events in Volume 8, Link and Midna are finally set to enter the Twilight Realm and face their demons in more ways than one. This gem of a series by artists Akira Himekawa has been ongoing…

After a short break. Mases and Gooey have returned with a new episode of Twilight Princess Zelda Warfare! We last left off with what looked like another victory for Gooey, but Mases disputed the win, claiming Gooey did not follow the rules of engagement. Surely the “Crooked Commissioner” is up to no good, because after things were ruled in Gooey’s favor, the board that voted this way was mysteriously fired and replaced with one that voted for Mases instead! No…
