It is undeniable that almost every Legend of Zelda game has a soundtrack packed with bangers. There is much debate between Zelda fans as to which game has the best soundtrack. Our debate in the newest Zelda Challenge episode takes a slight turn though. In this episode, Kevin and I are instead looking at what game uses music the best within the actual game. As opposed to which game has an actual better soundtrack, we are looking at the implementation…

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…

Last time on the Zelda Challenge, Kevin and I debated which game we felt had the best items in the Legend of Zelda series. Being that every game in the series has some beloved items, people were split in which of us they chose to support. In our latest episode, we move our focus to a specific item we would like to see return in the next game. I believe that the grappling hook would be a great addition to an open…

Link is one of the most well equipped characters in all of video games. Carrying around more fancy gadgets than James Bond and Batman combined, he always manages to find the right tool for the job. Though practically every game has an awesome lineup of amazing weapons and items, it is our job on the Zelda Challenge to determine which game’s arsenal is truly the greatest. Kevin believes that A Link to the Past with its wide variety of optional…

Who doesn’t love a good crossover game from time to time? I remember losing my mind back in the day when I saw the commercials for Super Smash Bros. Beating up on other Nintendo characters as Link was immensely satisfying. We’ve seen Zelda and other Nintendo games have some pretty fun or goofy crossovers since then, which always leads us to dream up other potentially great mashups. On the newest episode of the Zelda Challenge, Kevin and I do exactly…

The Zelda Challenge has returned and we are starting 2018 with a hot topic! There are many beloved characters in The Legend of Zelda series. As documented in the latest entry in the Hyrule Compendium, there is a never ending supply to choose from. This only made our debate much more difficult this time around. Kevin and I were tasked to pick one character from the series who we felt was the most fleshed out and compelling. I personally felt…

Certainly no Zelda game is ever a walk in the park for Link. Every Legend of Zelda game features the hero saving the world from impending destruction. Sometimes though, along the way, the challenges he must go up against can seem more difficult than others both physically and mentally. This has lead to many discussions over which Link really had it the worst. We tried to get to the bottom of it in the newest episode of the Zelda Challenge. Kevin and I both tried…

One of the strongest gameplay design elements in The Legend of Zelda series is the unique core mechanics the games are typically built around. Any game worth it’s salt should be intuitively designed to expand upon it’s mechanic in a fun and satisfying way. It is no wonder why often Zelda games often have the mechanic in the title of the game itself. In the newest episode of the Zelda Challenge, Kevin and I try to prove which of these games core mechanics gives…

Last week on the Zelda Challenge, Kevin and I debated which game in The Legend of Zelda series we thought takes longer to appreciate. This week we do a sequel of sorts and discuss which games still don’t receive the praise they have earned. Certain titles in the series just don’t get the recognition they deserve. Even when they do, one wonders why they don’t get the same amount of respect as some of the most highly regarded games in the franchise. I personally believe…

In such a beloved series, not every Zelda game is received well by everyone when it is first released. Maybe you can’t get over a certain mechanic, or maybe you just don’t like the style of gameplay it presents. If you are stubborn, maybe you put that game away forever and never touch it again. There are times in life, though, where we all deserve a second chance, and we need to pull those games off the shelf and give them another…
