Time is concept that is very common within the Legend of Zelda series; with 16 installments over 27 years, the series has brought us a total of six games which have used the idea of time in some manner. Time has also played a factor in the grand scheme of Zelda in the form of the timeline itself. Ocarina of Time has three alternate outcomes — two of which were a consequence of Princess Zelda sending Link back in time…

Let’s talk about stories. To those of you familiar with my article work on this site, you will know that I have a deep passion for storytelling, and specifically, story structure. I’ve written about the monomyth — or, as it is more commonly called, the “Hero’s Journey” — and how this literary phenomenon is reflected within the Zelda series. I’ve talked at length about Joseph Campbell’s theories and their pertinence to both the series and video gaming at large. It…

Link is kind of a ladies’ man; tons of Zelda girls adore Link. And who could blame them? It’s a generally understood fact that effeminate guys are often found especially attractive, and let’s face it: Link is a little bit of a girly dude. But he’s also manly and heroic, so clearly he’s quite a catch. Because of their abundance, it’s honestly pretty hard for jokes about Link’s many admirers to make me laugh anymore. The gag isn’t just a…

Hey guys! Mailbag’s a little late this week because of technical problems. This time we have 12 questions. Lot of broad series questions. Most of the game-specific questions are about Skyward Sword and The Wind Waker. Enjoy! Click here to watch it or check out the embed after the jump. Questions and timestamps: (00:07) – Which aspect of the Zelda series is most important to you? (01:29) – I’ve heard there’s a fourth Triforce. Is it true? (01:36) – What…

Hey guys! So this video discussion is all about Ganon. Specifically problems with him in some of the games. As I mention in the video, this is not a video of complaints about Ganon himself, but rather how he is treated and implemented in the stories and events of the games themselves. This video (and this will likely become common for discussion videos) is shorter than is typical for me and hopefully a little extra fun. I think this is…

Hey there guys! Got a new discussion video for you! In order to keep something of a Zelda Wii theme this week, I’ve made a Zelda Wii video to go along with the Zelda Wii themed mailbag earlier this week. This video is a list of things I’d like to see in Zelda Wii, and in some cases I discuss the merits and the likelihood of seeing these come true. It’s quite packed, actually. Some of the subjects I cover…

Whassup people? Got a slightly special mailbag for you this week! This one, except for two questions, is all about Zelda Wii! E3 is drawing near, so there’ll be a lot more to see when they reveal more on the game then, but for now I’ll try to talk about it as much as possible. The questions and their timestamps are: (00:06) – Did you like Chancellor Cole in Spirit Tracks? (00:34) – Do you like rolling in Zelda, and…
