Category: The Champions’ Cast

If you didn’t already know, the Champions’ Cast is all about cheap plugs, and this week we take it to the extreme: we play a game based off our Musical March Madness tournament (which if you haven’t checked it out, A) it’s going on right now, and B) WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?). We take the bracket and pick our own winners… with some back and forth negotiations in there to determine some winners and losers. It was a fun…

Andy and Taylor are back taking in a bunch of fan questions. Should Nintendo remake the Oracle games? What about making that long rumored third game? Which Zelda has the best ending? Did Breath of the Wild’s high tech take away from the fantasy element? And do we actually believe the rumors of another Zelda game coming out in 2019? This weeks show is a light and breezy one, full of fun! You won’t wanna miss it! Podbean | iTunes…

It’s a busy week in The Champions’ Cast, as Andy and Taylor reflect upon the two year anniversary of one of the most impactful and important games Nintendo ever released: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We discuss it’s legacy among other Zelda titles and wonder if we’ll ever see another release quite like it. Also on the docket: Honoring the 3DS and how it brought old school Zelda to so many new fans, asking whether the 3DS…

After a bit of a break, and more importantly after some time for the dust to settle on the Link’s Awakening announcement, the lads are back and tackling the biggest issues and comments around Nintendo’s dreamy announcement (sorry, that was horrible…). Will this be The Wind Waker 2.0? How much is this gonna cost? Do we find the anime-to-chibi style jarring? Is this remake connected to Breath of the Wild at all? And most importantly, did this remake need to…

Wow. Wowowowowow!! Talk about a way to end a Nintendo Direct! YES, the long rumored remake of Link’s Awakening was FINALLY revealed today and Andy and Taylor dive full steam ahead into it! Did we like the trailer? What’s up with those graphics?? Is it going to get a subtitle? When do we expect it to be released? Does this put the kibosh on the Skyward Sword HD rumors? All this and so much more! We also cover everything else…

Welcome to a very special loooove themed episode of The Champions’ Cast. With Valentines Day right around the corner and Zelda Dungeon celebrating it’s Week of Love, Andy and Taylor pick up this perfect opportunity to talk all things romance in the Zelda series and run with it! Do we even like romance in Zelda? Do we like choosing your partner or a predetermined narrative? Who do we “ship” together in the series? What are the greatest romantic angles the…

WELCOME BACK to another week, another episode, another great time hanging out with us over at The Champions’ Cast. Since thing last week got a bit testy, we brought in friend of the show / middle man / fight breaker-upper Gooey Fame to give us his two cents on The Wind Waker. The boys relax and run through a bunch of Nintendo news, including new Dr. Mario, Darksiders, and Switch sales numbers, before having a chat about what Zelda game…

It’s Andy vs Taylor this week as Taylor FINALLY gets down to the nitty gritty of why he believes The Wind Waker is the worst Zelda game of them all… but if you thought Andy was going to let him bury Toon Link and his cell-shaded adventure without a challenge, you thought wrong. Full of tense arguments, swift debates, and a little shouting here and there, this will be one you don’t want to miss! Also on the dock, we…

Taylor is out sick this week, so we had to push back our Wind Waker spectacle, but never fear! In his place is some Zelda Dungeon royalty: Copy Editing Legend Alasyn Eletha and the big cheese himself, Mases Hagopian! This week, the crew embrace the user generate Daily Debates to answer some pretty heavy hitting questions: Which Zelda game has the best ending? Do the graphical styles influence our initial opinions? Which game is the hardest? Could we ever see…

Andy and Taylor are back to cover a wide variety of different fans questions. On the table is Link’s Reawakening, our thoughts on Lana from Hyrule Warriors, which Nintendo 64 game needs a sequel, Horizon: Zero Dawn impressions, and… what each Zelda race smells like?? It’s another episode full of fun and shenanigans, and just because it’s Taylor’s birthday, Andy doesn’t make fun of Young Link… that much! Listen here, and get ready for next week as Andy finally makes…
