Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018:

One of the favored parts of Breath of the Wild, even to this day, has to be the ability to put Link in the widest variety of outfits the Zelda universe has seen. Several even enhance certain abilities, aiding our hero in his quest, like attack strength, temperature resistance, speed, and climbing abilities. This is the most customization we have seen to date in the series, and a topic periodically discussed within the fandom – typically, with positive feelings. So let’s talk about…

Now, it’s not clear for every Zelda game how old Link is, but he tends to be portrayed either very young or in his teens. I could see for some games even arguing he’s in his early twenties.  Regardless, no matter what, he’s usually rather young, and already quite the fighter. But who’s to say he always needs to be shown that way? What if Link was middle aged, and quite the experienced knight? A General, perhaps, or a family man…

Ganondorf. You know him. You’ve fought him. Constantly portrayed as the King of Thieves, the Dark Lord, so many monikers instilling fear, and you may have even come to love him as such. Trademarked by the Triforce of Power and that deep rumbling laugh that lets Link know he’s in for a fight of the ages, Ganondorf is one of the most iconic characters of the Zelda series. Yet he’s always been the enemy, and the one we know, in the end,…

Throughout the Zelda games, Link has had the opportunity to don outfits of different colors and and styles, allowing the player to enjoy the various benefits and in some instances, negative effects that can influence the hero’s adventures in Hyrule. There are armor sets, like the Magic Armor from Twilight Princess, which makes the wearer invulnerable while draining rupees from their wallet, and tunics from Ocarina of Time that provide heat resistance and the ability to breathe under water. There is mail from A…

Super Smash Bros. Melee has a special place in my heart as the first video game I ever played with my brother. With Zelda and Sheik as my main fighters, I remember spending countless hours fighting my way through Adventure Mode, challenging my brother and friends to Tournament matches, and most importantly, collecting trophies. By the time I got around to really playing the game, my brother had already collected nearly all of the trophies, making my attempts to collect…

There is not a doubt in anyone’s mind that Breath of the Wild is an extremely expansive game, with the freedom to basically do what you choose. Some have only played through the story, some have sunk hundreds of hours into going full-explorer mode, and many have played it multiple times, normal and Master modes alike. And a few have taken on the daunting task of attempting to achieve that beautiful figure, “100%.” I have recently become one of the latter….

The Legend of Zelda series is an expansive smorgasbord of different races, each with their own culture and traditions. There are the Gorons with their stone habitats and rock hard foods, the Rito have their energetic music and flying games, and the Gerudo have their own training facilities and strict rules, as well as many others. Now the question is not which race you could be a part of, but rather if you were dropped into Hyrule right now to live,…

The Legend of Zelda has gone through many different art styles in the past 30 years. From pixelated to state of the art HD cell shading, Link has pretty much been through it all. Now, some fans love the charming bright colours of The Wind Waker, others, the gritty landscape of Twilight Princess, and some prefer Skyward Sword, a combination of the two. Now the question for Nintendo is “Where do we go next?” I only recently found The Legend of Zelda manga, with the release of the…

Since the release of the first title in The Legend of Zelda franchise, Nintendo has worked hard to create an immersive experience for fans of the series. As each sequel or prequel (as the timeline dictates) is designed, players have had the opportunity to explore not only better graphics but different methods of actual gameplay throughout the series. When the Nintendo 64 hit the shelves, gamers had the opportunity to use the analog stick to direct Link on his adventures throughout Hyrule…

The Legend of Zelda boasts some of the most iconic and infectious gaming tunes, from the melancholy of Lon Lon Ranch to the grandeur of Twilight Princess’ Hyrule Field theme. Since the inclusion of the My Music feature in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the seminal fighting game series has tried to feature as many of these memorable melodies as possible. In some cases, the maestros at Nintendo have even put together new arrangements of familiar tracks. Smash. Brawl’s Ocarina of Time medley…
