One of the main things I’ve always wanted to see changed about the Zelda series is the level of detail the worlds in its games have. More so than some other adventure games I’ve played, Zelda has a tendency to have areas that feel… like they’re from a video game. I realize there are multiple confusing elements to that statement. The bottom line is that there’s usually two extreme kinds of video game: Arcade, and simulation. Arcade-style games don’t feel…

In my book Zelda’s kind of a series of archetypes. It’s a fantasy world and story that, initially, was really only that. In the first Legend of Zelda game, the series had just been born and its debut wasn’t a plot-focused game in the slightest, so there wasn’t any lore to build off. What the first game built off, instead, were archetypes! Link himself is the best examples of this, as his character is nothing more than an archetype: He’s…

Today’s Zelda Fanart Spotlight is on Deviantart artist, zorn981’s Legend of Zelda fanart, ‘It’s Dangerous to Go Alone‘. This fanart depicts the iconic scene of when Link encounters the old man in the cave shortly after the game begins. The old man, seeing that Link is without a proper weapon, gives him the Wooden Sword, or in this case, due to the artist’s choice, it’s the Master Sword. The colors and expressions that are used in this piece really help…

I’ve talked a lot about Zelda remakes, in two separate videos about Operation Moonfall, and more recently in a video about whether we should have an A Link to the Past or Majora’s Mask remake. I’ve made it abundantly clear that I don’t personally enjoy the prospect of having a Zelda remake at all, and this extends further into my general distaste for remakes. When a remake pops up in a game series I’m not as involved in, I don’t…

Today’s Zelda Fanart Spotlight is on deviantart artist tunetherainbow‘s Zelda fanart, “Ending to a Legend”. In this fanart it features the artist’s own interpretation of A Link to the Past’s ending. Link and Princess Zelda have just laid the Master Sword to rest for what is considered to be the last time. The two are walking away from the pedestal holding the legendary sword and a golden emblem of the Triforce is shown on the ground before them. The artist…

GameTrailers has updated one of their Pop Fiction Episodes. That one being specifically about the legendary Chris Houlihan room that can be found in the Zelda game: A Link to the Past. The room itself can only be found using certain methods and the room’s layout consists of blue rupees, a telepathic tile, and a water-covered floor. The reason behind the room’s existence is because back in 1990 Nintendo Power magazine had a contest where one had to take a…

Today’s Zelda Fanart Spotlight is on Deviantart artist Madec-Brice‘s “Link contre Ganon”. This fanart depicts the scene where Link first encounters Ganon in A Link to the Past. Link has his sword and shield at ready and is about to start fighting the evil pig. The light coming in from the windows illuminates the battle area very well and allows us to get a good look at the two opponents. One can also see the Triforce floating behind Ganon waiting…
