The Legend of Zelda is no stranger to dark themes and elements, but the darker side of the Hyrule mythos remains mostly in the dark. Though there are the demons from which the monsters would descend, and entities that have attained a demonic status, like Ganondorf and Vaati, truly disturbing fiends of terror remain few and far between. The best example of hellish demons in the Zelda franchise would be the Horned Statue from Breath of the Wild‘s Hateno Village. This demon’s…

Your primary responsibilities would be writing up News, Fan Posts, Daily Debates, Editorials, and pitching any crazy new features you think would be…

When Nintendo announced that Link’s Awakening was coming to Switch, one of the things I loved was the opening scene animation from the trailer. Cut scenes are nothing new to the Zelda franchise, but there is something special about an animated cartoon that stirs up nostalgia in me. A Studio Ghibli style Zelda movie would certainly be a sight to see, in my opinion! This makes me wonder if fans would like to see a complete animated adaptation of Link’s…

Our flaxen-haired hero has seen plenty of horrors in his time; Giant spiders, ghosts, amorphous water creatures, and the moon defying all physics to crush a small town. Yet, through it all, Link has persevered with cunning, weaponry, and a bit of magic. Hyrule really is in good hands. With all that expertise and robust catalogue of armaments, could Link be the hero in other fantasy worlds? Link has had a few cameos in other games, yet in none of…

The world of high fashion is strange and ever evolving. Multiple times a year, designers fill global runways with the craziest and most imaginative outfits ever conceived. And not a single one of them is practical or comfortable. The Legend of Zelda definitely has its fair share of crazy outfits, and Tri-Force Heroes did a wonderful job of creating wacky clothes for Link. The Gachaman inspired suit is easily the best one, but I’ve always been a sucker for nods…

We already have a pretty wild year in store for us as Zelda fans. Even with all of the games we have coming our way, a lot of people have been speculating on when the next big release in the series will be. In this week’s Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I discuss the possibility of the game coming out next year. This came from the news of Monolith Soft hiring to work on said game. Do you think it’s almost…

Not since the 1980s has Dungeons and Dragons enjoyed such a prominent place in pop culture. There are podcasts, livestreams, record-breaking Kickstarter campaigns, and a whole Dungeons and Dragons themed Voltron: Defender of the Universe episode. Yet, Dungeons and Dragons is only the tip of a much larger iceberg filled with tabletop role-playing goodness. The world of tabletop role-playing games is vast and filled with all kinds of ways to play. Want something more science fiction? There’s an RPG for…

To say last month’s announcement of the Zelda-Crypt of the NecroDancer crossover, Cadence of Hyrule, took the gaming community by surprise is an understatement. For Nintendo to license one of their most well known IPs to an indie developer is a bold and significant move for the company going forward. This action by Nintendo has opened their IP to new possibilities that some may have never considered possible. As such, the question arises of which indie titles their games could…

Following last month’s reveal of the Labo VR Headset, Nintendo has just announced that the virtual reality feature will soon be functional with Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. This announcement may come as a surprise, but the listed games are two of the Nintendo Switch’s best selling. The Labo website lists new features coming to Super Mario Odyssey in the form of three new mini-missions. However, no new gameplay has been announced for Breath of the Wild. A free update…

WARNING: This Daily Debate contains SPOILERS for Link’s Awakening. By the end of this year, we will all have our hands on what’s now one of the most anticipated Nintendo games in 2019: a Link’s Awakening remake for the Switch. Aside from the continued arguments in regards to the art style, a lot of fans agree that this remake was a long time coming. One of the biggest takeaways from this 25+ year Zelda title is the story. For those…
