Link’s Awakening is one of the most charming, unique, and memorable games in the series. Even before its 2019 facelift for the Switch, it was routinely ranked in some people’s top handful of games in the series. Part of the game’s charm comes from the characters and locations across Koholint Island, and one notable character is Old Man Ulrira, who will talk to Link over the telephone at various spots across the island. You can visit him in his actual…

As fans, we each have our own set of tastes when it comes to gauging the quality of an experience. In terms of the Zelda series, that means there will be some games that we like and some we don’t. But I think the majority of fans are in agreement that there have been some good soundtracks across franchise’s past thirty-five years.

It is no secret that few Zelda games have been as off-formula as the series’ second game. Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is nowadays widely considered a black-sheep for its side-scrolling gameplay and punishing difficulty. Being born at least seven years after this game was released, I first encountered Zelda II as part of a bundle pack on the Gamecube known as The Legend of Zelda Collector’s Edition. Personally, I didn’t care for the game too much at the…

For the last decade YouTube Content Creator Cuccolover has worked behind the scenes on videos in collaboration with various YouTube theorists to help build up their channels, all while having the desire to create her own. That dream is finally in motion with the release of her new video: Sacred Salvation.

Breath of the Wild is an expansive world. While light on story content in its ruined state, Hyrule certainly has a vast array of nooks and crannies to be explored. Even a bare-bones run of the game between the main villages, Divine Beasts, and Hyrule Castle will take you through quite a few different environments. To stay engaged with Breath of the Wild, some players impose rules upon themselves for heightened challenge. And here is a prime example of that…
