However, according to a new report by IGN, E3’s glorious return to the Los Angeles Convention Center may be without the industry’s three biggest players. Multiple industry sources…

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is often regarded not only as one of the best Zelda games, but as one of the best games period. This is in part thanks to its rich world and compact, evocative narrative — which, according to one Dungeons & Dragons expert, sets it up to be a model D&D campaign. Baron de Ropp of Dungeon Masterpiece, a YouTube channel focused on “critically analyzing gaming systems,” breaks down the structure of Ocarina of…

Since Super Mario Maker‘s release in 2015 (and probably since the original Zelda), fan’s have longed for a Zelda Dungeon Maker. Clever puzzles, unique enemies, and intricate room arrangements—the ability for fans to try their own hand at these and other aspects of level design would make a Zelda Dungeon Maker wildly popular.

For all my talk of Ocarina of Time being an overrated Zelda game, it’s definitely not without good qualities. The most prominent one that comes to my mind is versatility. Not only has the 1998 title stood the test of time by remaining an accessible and playable classic to this day, it makes a fantastic canvas for randomizers and various modded versions. Vidya James, a Zeldathon member and Twitch streamer, recently showcased a version of Ocarina of Time where young…

A few days ago, my good friend Ike over on Twitter sent me an idea pitch to spotlight streamer and content creator TriFelicia. Ike was really passionate about her ongoing series of videos over on TikTok covering theories on Tears of the Kingdom, of which she has done over a hundred! I found that devotion so impressive; I had to dig bit deeper to see these theories for myself. I watched a few of the earliest videos first. Seeing the…
