In one of Dr.Wily‘s latest videos he came up with ideas on why the Zora’s needed to evolve to later become the Rito. It could have been possible that the change in water conditions made it so that they were no longer able to live underwater. It could also have happened because there was not enough food for them in The Great Sea. The monsters in The Great Sea could have been a part of the reason that they needed…

In one of his latest videos, YouTuber TedescoCreations did a Piano cover on Sage Laruto. It is done both somberly and elegantly, with the audio being of high quality. It was done on Keyboard and is one of my personal favorite songs from The Wind Waker. The visuals of the video are also done well with a cool background shown behind both himself and the keyboard. Check out the video after the jump!

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…

The guys over at Did You Know Gaming have covered many Zelda games, as well as other aspects of the franchise, over the years. In one of their more recent videos they look into The Wind Waker featuring the one and only PeanutButterGamer. See the video after the jump.  

Admittedly, when The Wind Waker was released back in 2003, I was not a fan. My first look at it was as a twenty minute demo on the Zelda Collector’s Edition my siblings and I got for Christmas when I was ten. At the time, I had just finished playing through Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask–my second and third Zelda games ever–and the concept of a ‘Toon Link’ was so bizarre to me, the switch in worlds so monumental…

Other than the clearly enhanced visuals and audio of the game, there were a few changes Nintendo made to Wind Waker during its HD revamp that changed quite a deal. One of the features they had cut from the game entirely was the connectivity between the GameCube system and the Gameboy Advanced systems- allowing the player to use the Tingle Tuner for various features, such as letting Link hover or simply keeping him alive altogether. I had a few ideas…

Among the myriad video game soundtrack covers out there, Game & Sound’s work stands out for its exceptional MIDI-guitar pairing. The artist just made a resurgence with a cover of the Dragon Roost Island theme. Take a listen after the jump!

In one of his recent videos Celestial Fury decided to do a metal cover of the Dragon Roost Island theme. It is done well and both Zelda and metal fans should enjoy this cover. Starting with a calm piano opening it makes a smooth transition into guitar and makes for a good listen.     Check out the video after the jump!

Fresh off the heels of his previous Zelda cover when he did the intro of A Link to the Past, this time YouTube one man acapella choir and professional cat owner Smooth McGroove is covering yet another Zelda song. Having done several of Majora’s Mask covers and plenty of other themes, Smooth is no stranger to the Zelda franchise. This time he returns to Wind Waker, where he covers the Outset Island theme. Watch the video after the jump!

GameXplain gave us a tour of the Omega version of the Pirate Ship Stage, which returned to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U in the latest DLC. The Pirate Ship was originally in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and it’s great to see it return to the Wii U version of the game. Since Super Smash Bros. Brawl didn’t have Omega stages, however, this is the first time we get to see the Omega version of the Pirate Ship Stage…
