We have been spending a great deal of time with Ocarina of Time over on our Youtube channel. Between our series Jamie Plays Zelda and Zelda Warfare Mases and I have gotten our fair share of the game in the past few months. All of our time spent with the game has sparked many a thought about it in our minds. In our newest entry into the Hyrule Compendium, we take a look at some of the classic enemies of the Legend of…

We have been having some fun lately over at the ZD Youtube channel lately talking to Mases’ friend Jamie, who is a long time gamer playing Ocarina of Time for the first time. In this video where we asked him about his experience with the Water Temple, he told Mas that he actually thought the Temple was one of the easiest in the game. This got us thinking about what actually makes a Zelda game “hard”. That lead to a…

We all have our favorite Legend of Zelda games, but what ones deserved to be etched into stone? In the newest entry into the Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I discuss which games in the series deserve the honor of being included in the “Mount Rushmore” of Zelda. These game are not necessarily our top four games, but what games we think best represent the series in the public eye. Check out the video to see what games we picked! Do you agree…

This past week’s Nintendo Direct really hit us with some exciting news; Super Smash Bros. is finally coming to Switch! The trailer features a silhouette of Breath of the Wild’s Link engulfed in flames. This lead many to speculate on what else from Breath of the Wild we could see represented in the next Smash title. In the spirit of that, Mases and I sat down for another entry into the Hyrule Compendium in which we discussed which characters and settings we…

We are kicking off music week with a very special Hyrule Compendium! As many of you may know, at the end of the week we will be revealing our top 50 Zelda songs as chosen by our staff. In this entry into the Compendium, we discuss some of the honorable mentions that didn’t quite make the cut. We also tease some of the songs that will be appearing on our list. If you are anticipating our top 50, you certainly…

One can’t think of The Legend of Zelda without hearing the ghost of it’s iconic music flitting through their mind. That being said, we here at Zelda Dungeon wish to continue our themed weeks by paying tribute to one of the franchise’s most beloved aspects. And so, starting February 19th and continuing on through the 25th, we will be bringing you all things musical when it comes to our Zelda coverage, with Music Week. You can look forward to many…

The first dungeon of any game in The Legend of Zelda is vital to setting the tone of a game. Some Zelda games struggle to strike a balance between tutorial, story, exploration, and fun gameplay to varying degrees. Following our discussion on what game is best for new players to the series, we came to the conclusion that Ocarina of Time has the best first dungeon. In the newest entry into the Hyrule Compendium, we have a more in depth discussion about the Deku…

In the last entry in the Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I discussed the reoccurring villains of the Legend of Zelda series. Our original intention was to discuss all of the series’ antagonists. This proved to be too much for just one video! In this follow up, we are discussion all of the villains who made one time appearances in the series. Though these villains have only appeared once, some of them are considered the best in the series. Some would say the fact that…

In the latest entry in our series, Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I were tasked with talking about the villains of the Zelda series. There ended up being more than we could talk about in one video. Part one of our two part mini-series focuses on the reoccurring villains of Zelda. We mostly talk about Ganon, as he is the seminal bad boy of the franchise, but Vaati gets a mention as well. Stay-tuned for next week when we will be…
