We’re back with part TWO of our Zelda-themed “Would You Rather?” Fan Q&A! On the docket today: Would we rather collect every Korok seed or ship part from Phantom Hourglass? Would we rather the Zelda movie be awful, or not made at all? Would we rather leave out the Triforce or Master Sword from the next Zelda game? Would we rather the Hover Boots return or the Iron Boots? Would we rather all future dungeons are Divine Beast style or…

We have a really fun episode of the show for you this week! We asked for your Zelda-themed “would you rather” questions, and you guys delivered so much that we had to split the episode into two parts! A couple of the questions we had fun with include: would you rather get a brand new Zelda right away and wait for the Switch 2 for ten years, or vice versa? Would you rather play Tri Force Heroes solo or 100%…

It’s time to kick it old school with another entry into our Definitive Ranking series, this time, examining the game that started it all: The Legend of Zelda! We’re going through ten critical categories that make up the ingredients to a Zelda game – world, story, pacing, art style, dungeons, bosses/enemies, items, gameplay, extras, and music – and assigning them each a score to see how the original game stacks up against all of the legendary entries that came after…

We’re back this week continuing the discussion around Tears of the Kingdom, except this time, we’re comparing and contrasting it to three other direct sequels in the Zelda franchise: Majora’s Mask, Phantom Hourglass, and A Link Between Worlds! We go over what makes a game a direct sequel in our eyes, how each game changed up the gameplay from its predecessors, if there was enough new content to make the sequel feel distinct, and so much more! We’re also covering…

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been one year since the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, so this week, we’re reflecting back on the game and talking about how our thoughts or opinions have changed or been cemented now that the dust has settled. We discuss Tears’ legacy as a sequel, as a standalone Zelda game, and where it ranks among our favorite Zelda games. Andy and Al both have strong opinions on the game,…

Unfortunately, Andy is out sick this week. So we thought we’d take it easy and discuss some of ZD’s latest Daily Debates! And joining Al in place of Andy is The Zelda Cast’s podcast producer extraordinaire, Adrielle! Here’s what’s up for discussion: What is the best final dungeon in the Zelda series? Is Adventure of Link really that bad? What is our favorite item in our personal Zelda collections? And also, what the heck are the snapper turtles saying in…

Al’s away and Andy’s taking a spa day this week, so we have a first for our show: we’re unlocking the very first episode of the Zelda Cast Top Tens that we ever did! For our debut episode, the one and only Alasyn Eletha joins the show for a double header Top Ten list: The moment emotional moments in the Zelda series, and the cheeky-but-fun Top Ten Ugliest Twilight Princess characters (paying off a running joke that’s been running hard…

It’s time for the triumphant return of the best game in this Legend of Zelda business – The Zelda Cast’s Guess That Zelda Character! The premise is simple – we have 16 yes or no questions to guess a Zelda character from any game in the series! This time around, our competitors are “The Canadian Nightmare” Andy Spiteri, “The Rain Waker” Alasyn Eletha, and “Main Event” Jules Gia. Come play along with us and try not to pull your hair…

Welcome back to the show this week, as we delve into a fantastic new Zelda fan album from acclaimed producer Jokabi and record label GameChops called “Zelda’s Lofi Kingdom“! This is a soothing, melodic album that remixes some of the best tracks from Tears of the Kingdom, so this week, we delve in and review the album, talking our favorite tracks, nicest remixes, differences between this album and the Zelda & Chill series, what tracks we might have left off…

Recently, our Zelda Dungeon Writing Staff released a feature that collected the various writers’ SPICIEST Zelda hot takes, and just like we did on the podcast a few months ago, we’re now reacting to each take and assigning it a SPICE meter. On the table: is the downfall timeline the only logical conclusion for the timeline to go following the events of Ocarina of Time? And speaking of that game, is nostalgia the only thing keeping it atop our Best…
