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…

Do you ever bring up a Legend of Zelda game just to relax? Maybe you listen to the background music, maybe you do some idle task, or maybe playing the game itself chills you out. There is no shortage of quaint moments, beautiful scenery, and classic soundtracks that all help create a world that makes it easy to unwind. In the newest episode of the Zelda Challenge, Kevin and I have a friendly debate over what game makes us feel nice and cozy….

Welcome to the “Zelda Challenge” debut, our brand new Youtube series where we go head to head and debate various Zelda topics. In our first episode, Kevin and I tried to prove which game in the series we thought  was the most ridiculous. The Legend of Zelda series has no shortage of ridiculous games. From talking boats, transforming into a wolf, a floating city in the sky, and more, you could probably make an argument for almost any of the games making…
