Tag: Glitches

Over at GameTrailers there is a new episode of Pop Fiction examining the sad story of the Deku Butler’s son in Majora’s Mask. Over the decade and a half since the release of the game, players have been frustrated at their inability to help the Deku Butler restore his son to life, or to send his soul on to a peaceful end. So, can this little NPC be resurrected? Hit the jump to see the episode.

If your knowledge of Ocarina of Time goes beyond what is shown inside of the game itself you likely know that Ocarina of Time has a large number of glitches, exploits and other unintended tricks in it. With the advent and subsequent mastery of emulation technology people have found ways to force certain glitches onto the game. With the start of November the YouTube personality PeanutButterGamer enters his fourth Zelda Month in which he makes all kinds of videos dedicated…

As is natural with a new game, a glitch has been found in Hyrule Warriors by Tumblr user presidentlaghosta. This glitch features Princess Zelda singing her lullaby while she uses Lana’s summoning gate. The link to the video can be found post-jump!

Building off our recent Eggbuster post, I wanted to have an open discussion on glitches in the series and what ones you happen to really enjoy. Are you a sequence breaking fan? Surely Ocarina of Time must be a dream for you then. Do you like silly glitches like using fishing poles as weapons, breaking a game and traveling the opening cinematic area? Heck, do annoying glitches tend to get it done for you… like a game not saving in the Canon room or not saving in the Stone Tower Temple (both glitches that do delete your save file). Today’s debate is literally all about glitches…

Eggbusters is back (okay, they never really left) with another video tackling glitches in a Zelda game. For those who aren’t aware, Eggbusters is a show that tackles supposed glitches in various games as claimed by the internet and then confirms or deconfirms if they work. Then, if it does work, they try and see everything you can possibly do with the glitch itself. One of their most popular episodes ever actually involved some very neat glitches from Twilight Princess. The person who does the videos does tend to fangasm over Skyward Swords beauty (and hey, we totally understand!)…

Ironic, isn’t it—we started this week with a pair of Daily Debates discussing glitches and bugs in Zelda games, and now a new one has been discovered in the depths of Ocarina of Time‘s Spirit Temple. Speedrunner Tokyoboi808 was attempting a run of the game while blindfolded, livestreaming the whole time, and by complete accident he happened to perform a set of actions that allowed him to glitch through the ceiling and enter a room above his current location…

Following the reveal of a pretty sweet bug in Hyrule Warriors, we had a little discussion about the best bugs or glitches in Zelda‘s history of games. But I think we all knew that these sorts of things are rarely positive. While the Zelda series is usually very polished and manages to avoid the kind of bugs that have detrimental effects on gameplay, over the years a few…

So it looks like Hyrule Warriors has a pretty awesome bug in it that allows characters to use the weapons and movesets of other characters from the game, unlocking a ton of possibilities. No longer is Link alone in his ability to use the Spin Attack; now, just equip a Hylian Sword to any character and they too can spin at mighty speeds and somehow not become dizzy beyond belief.

Bugs and glitches have a bad rap in video games, and for good reason: oftentimes they can completely destroy an experience…

Here’s an odd one today. While the recent Hyrule Warriors update fixed a lot of things, it also opened up an entirely new bug that is at least far more entertaining than the old one. The original bug before the update saw characters equipping items and weapons from other characters, but still using their own moveset. Now not only do they equip other items from other characters, they use their movesets too! Instead of fixing the original bug, it seems to have gotten worse—worse in a way that is totally amazing…

Years after the release of Ocarina of Time, people are still finding glitches for the revolutionary game, with the latest one being pretty darn cool. Read on for more details!
