Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Tag: Linebeck

When thinking up editorials, my mind tends to stray towards the same games: The Wind Waker always seems like a good option, I always have something to say about Skyward Sword or Twilight Princess, and I never tire of talking about my personal favorite title in the series, A Link to the Past. I try to avoid repeating myself, but it keeps getting harder and harder to think of something fresh. So, when brainstorming for my latest editorial I thought…

Last week 2 DS Zelda titles were released for the Wii U Virtual Console in Europe, Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. Now, those that might have missed out on playing the original titles when they were released for the Nintendo DS back in 2007 and 2009, or maybe you are being a bit nostalgic for Linebeck’s antics, you can now enjoy them both on your Wii U. If its been awhile since you’ve played either title or your just not…

New Tri Force Heroes DLC was just announced during the Nintendo Direct! The new DLC will feature two new costumes; Linebeck’s Uniform which lets you look inside treasure chests, and the Fierce Deity Armor which increases your attack power and will allow you to shoot beams in four directions. The new DLC will also add an entirely new area names, the Den of Trials which has thirty new levels. These new additions will be made available for free on December…

Cosplay of the Week is back and sailing the seas with this week’s feature – Linebeck from The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. The cosplayer who masterfully brought Linebeck to life is xHee-Heex of DeviantArt…

Phantom Hourglass is not a well-loved game in the Zelda series, but it’s one I surprisingly found myself quite fond of. It has plenty of shortcomings alongside its good moments, but one part of the game that I was pretty fond of was the final battle. I feel it’s worth addressing because in a big way I feel these moments are highly overlooked by those who’ve played the game, and written off because of their dislike of the game in…

Hello! Look! Zelda partners are extremely important characters. They act as story-tellers, guides, and voices for our otherwise voiceless hero. Let’s not forget, they also have the most screen time of any character in the game, barring Link of course, and for this reason, the execution of a brilliant partner character is an important staple when building any Zelda game. He/she is going to be remembered for better or for worse. So which games created the best companions, and which…

The Wind Waker introduced a different sort of Zelda overworld, one that we had never experienced before. The concept behind its open-seas transportation was taken further on the DS with the release of Phantom Hourglass. In an attempt to implement the DS’s touch screen, the sailing was replaced this time with steamboat navigation. All Link had to do was draw a line on the map to his destination and the ship would sail there. With that, the DS games created…

Because today is Christmas Eve, or even Christmas already in some places, we have a holiday themed Zelda comic for you! Straight from deviantART is a short bit about Zelda forcing some of the other characters to align with the holiday spirit. Of course whenever Link gets a voice he usually expresses his latent “Grumble, Grumble” thoughts, whether it be because of the stress of his adventures or another cause, this comic is no exception. This time, Link and company…

Hello Zelda Dungeoners, and welcome to today’s Flute Boy’s Meadow! For this week’s feature I felt it would be appropriate to answer two common requests I’ve received in the past few weeks, especially since the songs are from the same game. First, following my Companion Themes series there was a lot of love shown for Linebeck. The cowardly but lovable ship captain from Phantom Hourglass was unfortunately excluded from my companions series because he is not technically the game’s companion….
