I thought about this over and over again. What is my favorite Zelda speedrun to watch? Personally, I would have to say mine would be Ocarina of Time. I started getting into it when Clint Stevens was running it and ever since then I LOVED watching Ocarina of Time speedruns. But since he doesn’t anymore I have a few others I can watch if I need an Ocarina of Time fill. I love Ocarina of Time runs mainly because I…

The Legend of Zelda is the latest franchise to be satirized in JelloApocalypse’s “So This is Basically” series of animated shorts, which gives a basic overview of a series while highlighting its quirkier traditions. Of course our beloved series’ over-complicated timeline, homicidal cuccos, tedious fetch-quests, still-beating hearts hidden in grass, and fan base’s undying love of Ocarina of Time were all fair game for roasting. This long-standing series has plenty of content to poke fun at, JelloApocalypse covers it all….

Retro downgrade covers are one of the coolest things to hear when it comes to video game music. What it basically boils down to is taking a well-established song and converting into something that we would have heard 30 years ago on things like an Nintendo Entertainment System. The one we’re looking at today takes Zelda music and throws it into the era of earlier Zelda music. This recent video from 8-Bit remix artist Loeder takes the Shop Theme from Ocarina of Time and…

There’s always a form of music that you or I have never even heard of. In this recent case, that would be electro swing which apparently is a blend of swing and jazz, mixed with more modern types of music like EDM, house, & hip hop. The Breath of the Wild remix we’re listening to today gives us a different take on the main theme using said musical style. This most recent Zelda cover comes to us today from The…

With Breath of the Wild out the traditional five year wait for the next mainline Zelda game begins. During the last interval, after Skyward Sword released, three games filled the gap: the amazing A Link Between Worlds, the mediocrely received Triforce Heroes, and the curveball from left field Hyrule Warriors. Koei Tecmo took their Musou Warriors formula, or Dynasty Warriors for those outside of Japan, and applied to the lands of Hyrule, bringing together what many fans would consider a…

Though not one of the biggest bosses in the Zelda series, Phantom Ganon is definitely a character that has not shown up a whole lot in the franchise. Essentially a shadow clone of the one and only Ganon, this phantom variation only shows up to essentially toy around with Link. Thanks to one Zelda fan we can see how Phantom Ganon has only really changed more in power, not design. In a recent video, BeardBear posted up a close look…

What can be said about music covers that hasn’t already been said? Every instrument under the sun has given us something unique in its own special way. Some have come to us from pretty much out of nowhere (looking at you floppy disk drive cover). The one we are listening to today falls into that same exact category.

Last week we published a list our least favorite Zelda songs, inciting some strong reactions from our readership. There were certainly tracks on the list that people took objection to, and some fans suggested songs that should have been included instead. Obviously our list in no way represents the entirety of the Zelda fanbase, so today we ask what piece from a Zelda soundtrack do you find weak, bad, or outright detestable. Now, we’ve already laid out some characteristics that…

Hello, ZI fans. Are you ready to get your paws on another entry of our weekly Caption Contest? Despite Breath of the Wild releasing over half a year at this point, I am still finding myself surprised by little things hidden in the game by the developers. For example, did you know that Link could ride a bear? That’s right! A freaking bear! How cool is that?!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild completely shook up the Zelda formula with its open world and new mechanics. However, not all mechanics were praised equally. Maybe the story could have been better, the dungeons and bosses could have been more interesting, or maybe there are too many darn Korok Seeds to collect. Personally, I love the game as is, though there are some aspects that I would change, such as having a bit more story as well…
