Welcome to Zelda Dungeon’s Inspired By Zelda Week! It was my pleasure to kick the proceedings off with a piece I wrote about Blossom Tales, but we decided that wasn’t enough – we wanted to you the (listener? reader? both?) straight to the source of the magic! Joining us this week is Rob Maher, developer, programmer, artist, and general jack-of-all-trades, to talk some Blossom Tales! We talk about future sequels that may or may not involve Shrek, how the Blossom…

What’s up friends? I hope that your Monday finds you and yours well. If it doesn’t, come listen to Andy and Taylor complain about Nintendo’s new Nintendo Switch Paid Online Service (whew…) and hopefully that will cheer you up! We break down what we do like, what we don’t like, the value of the free games versus service price, that darn voice chat, and most interestingly of all, ask the question: with Nintendo cranking out Zelda ports as fast as…

Hey everyone, we’re back once again! This week is more of a Nintendo-in-general focused episode as take a look at the (very few left) games on the Wii U that haven’t been ported over to the Switch that we’d like to see given new life, followed by us diving deep into the word of Game Boy Advance. Taylor and I were tasked with ranking our Top 15 GBA games of all time, which proved to be more challenging than either…

Welcome back to the Cast, everyone! This week is a week full of special appearances as everyone but myself went on a luxurious vacation, leaving me to do all the hard work (what else is new I tell ya!?). Luckily for me, I was able to wrangle up Zelda Dungeon video maestro and co-host of Hyrule Compendium Gooey Fame to help me co-host a very special episode with a very special guest: Captain Dangerous! Captain Dangerous, aka Dangerous Pixels, aka…

Welcome back, dear listeners, to another rendition of The Champions’ Cast, comin’ at you from our new home on Monday nights! That’s right, now you can get your week off to the start that it deserves (take that for what you will) by listening to Andy, Sav, and Taylor bicker in your ears! This episode is all about villains: Which villains are the most woefully underutilized, what villain-types from other media would make a welcome addition to the Zelda series,…

We’re back again with a little bit more of an introspective episode this week for you guys. On the menu is our thoughts on Zelda remakes and remasters, what added tweaks we want to see in the next Zelda, and asking the big question: why does the timeline mean to much to fans, while also reflecting on what it means to me. Of course, we still have time to have some fun, as the disagreements are frequent, interruptions even more…

Buckle in for part two of our double feature Friday night Champions’ flick. We wanted to do a bonus episode to make up for missing last week, but didn’t have any good ideas for what we wanted to talk about, so we did what any self respecting podcast hosts would do: took the easy way out and just had everyone ask us a bunch of questions! That’s right, It’s mailbag time, as we delve into which Champion power is the…

Hello friends and welcome back! After our live stream episode two weeks ago, we had to take a week off cause SOMEONE (i.e. me) was getting “surgery” done. To make up for this, Taylor, Savannah, and I have put on our capes, entered the Zeldamobile, and are hitting you with not one, but TWO episodes this week! In Episode 6, it’s all about RPG’s. What would a Zelda RPG look like? What even constitutes being an RPG even more? Would…

Strap yourselves in everybody because we’ve got a… SMASHING EPISODE* of the Champions’ Cast for you! (*I’ll leave soon, I promise) That’s right, if you weren’t sick to death already of everybody throwing their baseless speculation around about the newest Super Smash Bros. game, you can now listen to Taylor, Savannah, and I – the most baseless speculators of them all! – throw around our hopes and dreams for the new Smash! What do we wanna see from Breath of…

Hard to believe that it’s been over a year since the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the Nintendo Switch. This week, the gang reminisce over the day they picked up Breath of the Wild; where it falls in the series in terms of story, gameplay, and dungeons; and what Breath of the Wild’s legacy will be for the Zelda series. For some extra spice, we also talk about the dilemma of Breath of the…
