One of the more well-known songs in the Twilight Princess soundtrack has to be “Midna’s Lament”. A song that perfectly encapsulates the feelings felt when Midna is almost taken away from Link. Most covers of this song  feature an almost somber tone that reminiscent of the original score, but sometimes there’s that cover that switches the mood just enough to feel like something different. That’s the feeling I get when hearing Husky by the Geek’s rock cover of “Midna’s Lament”….

I almost feel bad about writing this Daily Debate, as the last thing I want to do is suggest that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is lacking in content. Every aspect of this game, from the colossal stage selection screen to what is easily the greatest roster in any fighting game, is in a league of its own. The music selection specifically is so robust that it would be cheating to call it the greatest soundtrack in video game history. I…

Season four of Zelda Warfare featuring Twilight Princess continues! Mases and Gooey are once again pitted against each other as they race through small portions of the game. In this episode, they will be facing off against the Mayor of Ordon, Bo, in an epic sumo match! Will Mases widen his lead, or will Gooey begin to “rise to the top”, as Macho Man Randy Savage once said? Check out the video above to find out! In the video, it…

On average, a Zelda game’s final dungeon is injected with a climactic flair, sinister architecture, or the ultimate test of one’s abilities — some even boast all three of these qualities. No matter how you slice it, a sense of finality permeates the dungeon. That is until one looks at Twilight Princess’s Hyrule Castle, which takes a unique approach throughout much of its duration. From the outset, this version of Hyrule Castle is one of the most relaxing dungeons I…

It is a well-known convention of the Zelda series for a new item to be acquired halfway through a given dungeon. The last half of the dungeon often serves as an introduction to that item, teaching how it is used by presenting obstacles that require the item to progress. The peak of this test is normally at the boss fight of the dungeon, where the item offers an ingenious way for a small Hylian to defeat an otherwise insurmountable monster….

The Temple of Time appeared with its own dungeon in Twilight Princess, offering players the opportunity to explore its hidden chambers and mechanics. This was an unexpected feature in the game’s design, as there was never any hint that something strange lay hidden beyond the walls that housed the Master Sword in any of the other Zelda games, after all. I never thought I’d find myself asking whether or not people liked the Temple of Time having its own dungeon,…

Zelda Warfare is back with another episode! If you are unfamiliar with Zelda Warfare, it is a series in which hosts Mases and Gooey go head to head in a variety of challenges in a particular Zelda game. This season’s game is Twilight Princess, and today we find Mases and Gooey in the Forest Temple! The main rule for this match-up is to beat the dungeon without using the ZL button for targeting except for the final boss Diababa. Who…

We all know the standard spread of items that typically appear in Link’s arsenal. Items like the bow and bombs have been a staple since The Legend of Zelda in 1986. The Hookshot, first introduced in A Link to the Past, is an item that has been has been repurposed again and again to take on different names like the Longshot in Ocarina of Time or the Double Clawshots in Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword. From hammers to boomerangs to ocarinas (sometimes…
