Rogue Jam‘s panel of judges — including former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé — have spent the last few months picking the show’s top contenders, and each new…

Upon its 2011 Wii release, the most striking element of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was the use of 1:1 motion controls to manipulate Link’s sword and other objects. This was a fairly controversial decision, and despite the system’s far-from-perfect consistency, the unique controls undoubtedly lend Skyward Sword an air of singularity that separates it from other Zelda titles. When creating Skyward Sword HD, Australia-based developer Tantalus had two goals: improve the quality of the game’s motion controls, and make the game more accessible…

The Zelda series is celebrating 36 years currently! We know so much already about various games and guides that have released in this timeframe, yet much still remains shrouded in mystery. Bit by bit, our friend Melora, who runs History of Hyrule, is archiving rare Zelda guidebooks, magazines, and manga digests that are no longer in print. Her most recent archival endeavor was to find and scan the Japanese version of the guidebook for The Legend of Zelda, known in…

For now, details are scant. The short video that accompanies the announcement shows off an impressively detailed likeness of the Zora princess.

Last Friday, professional wrestler “American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes appeared on “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s WWE Network-exclusive talk show The Broken Skull Sessions. And to promote the appearance, both WWE Superstars went to Twitter last week with a quick game of “30 Second Shot Clock,” wherein Austin asked Rhodes a series of rapid-fire questions covering topics from fast food to amusement parks. Most interestingly, at least for video game fans, was in fact the very first question brought forth by “The…
