The Legend of Zelda has had many great main series titles, from Ocarina of Time to Twilight Princess to the recent Breath of the Wild. And with every great series comes a few spinoffs. Ranging from the LCD Zelda games to the CD-I games to the Tingle series, Nintendo has given us some unique and amazing spin-offs, with obvious exceptions. Granted, there are more spinoffs than just those mentioned and we can be sure that more will come in the future. However, outside…

Breath of the Wild is a multi-faceted game that can be approached by various angles. Nintendo’s online video series “Nintendo Plays” has a new segment featuring Chiko from Nintendo Treehouse and her son. The new material is simply known as “Kid vs. Parent.” Within this material, Chiko talks with her son about various aspects of Breath of the Wild and other Zelda series facts. Admist the light-hearted conversation, Chiko challenges her son to various “challenges” in Breath of the Wild. The interaction is touching…

Warning: Spoilers ahead. One of the most frequently discussed elements of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the presentation of its story. The narrative deviates from tradition in that it is told mostly through flashbacks — memories — that Link unlocks throughout his journey. Although piecing together elements of a larger puzzle through Link’s memories is an exciting prospect on paper, I have mixed feelings toward the memory system’s execution. There ultimately wasn’t much of a mystery to…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is easily one of the greatest games of all time, having received universal acclaim (with some exceptions) since its release. Many critics praised how it has become a landmark game for Open World style games, as you could literally explore everything around you saw up till the very obvious world borders defined by endless deserts, bottomless cliffs, and endless oceans. Exploration was its main selling point and it truly did deliver. Though…

As many of you know, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild features an expansive open world full of treasure, shrines, and enemies to discover, with one of the largest game worlds to date. However, unlike other series such as The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, you have to travel the world alone without a companion. Something Bethesda’s aforementioned series lack is Multiplayer. Fooni, a member of the Wii U modding community, recently began working on a Breath of the…

Speedruns are quite common for the Zelda franchise, as are randomized runs.  A Link to the Past is often spedrun and has since become a popular title for randomization, sometimes in teams. In an effort to assist teams, Andi McClure, and independent game developer, created a script that will allow teams to share items within the game. Generally, teammates shared item locations via a text chat program, where this script’s aim is to add the items one player acquires to the other’s inventory. The script was tested…

Hey there, my ZI compadres. How about we start up this week’s exciting Caption Contest? As evidenced by last week’s contest, Link has amassed quite a collection of headwear in Breath of the Wild. The latest DLC pack added a few new pieces to our hero’s repertoire, but we can’t just ignore the many hats that Link donned in his original adventure through the wild. One such headpiece was the Lizalfos Mask, an expertly crafted article that lets our hero…

Ocarina of Time is considered by many to be one of the greatest games of all time, and those who play it are often enchanted by the many ocarina songs found within it. Those classic songs are brought to life on ThinkGeek’s electronic Ocarina of Time. Playing each six-note tune “unlocks a hidden song” in the instrument’s Classic Mode. The ocarina also comes with a Free-Play Mode allowing for freestyle riffs. Pre-order it now for $29.99 plus shipping. Created by…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is certainly a contentious topic among the more hardcore Zelda fans. While most casual Zelda gamers and video game fans have embraced the stylistic changes that Breath of the Wild ushered in, you’re always going to have the fans opposed to a change in the well oiled machine that was the Zelda series post-Ocarina of Time. It seems that it’s been some of the more dedicated Zelda faithful that were less impressed…

When The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD came out no one in the speedrunning community back then would believe you if you told them the World Record is now 1:28:05. The very first time that has been noted on speedrun.com was 8:47:19 by TRStanzi 3 days after the game was released. Now that time has been brought down to 1:28:05 by the one and only Gymnast86. What helped Gym and other runners bring the time down so fast was…
