Hang ten, Small Fry! The Wind Waker’s soundtrack is a perfect accompaniment to Link’s seafaring adventure. The game’s music features boisterous sea shanties and Spanish guitar-inspired melodies, with a wide array of adventure, introspection, and melancholy in between. More than simply serving its purpose of providing ambiance against which the game is set, the music itself is an intrinsic part of The Wind Waker‘s experience. One sea-centric genre the game’s musical score doesn’t explore is surf rock. Luckily for us,…

Content creator and LEGO fan…

To fans’ delight, the artwork is available to download from…

Back in late 2023, it was revealed that the Master Sword would become available as part of Bandai Spirits’ Proplica collector’s line. Information on the prop was limited, although it would be displayed at Tamashii Nation’s toy expo, where fans could get a special glimpse of the blade in all its glory.

Numbers are consistently up, despite a drought in game releases. A few titles will likely keep the Switch alive and profitable in the coming months, especially in…

TerminalMontage’s “Something About” team has returned with another highly-anticipated, hilariously unhinged entry in their Ocarina of Time animated retelling. They have already done a number on Child Link’s journey, and the Adult Hero of Time’s journey to the Forest and Fire Temples. Now they have taken on depicting a spoof of the the infamous Water Temple. This video is full of easter eggs, and most of all, it encapsulates the frustration we classic (Nintendo 64) players of Ocarina of Time…
