Latest Updates

Hello, ZI fans! The Photoshop Contest is back again, and I do believe I’ve caught a whiff of the sea breeze. This week saw the release of a new Pirates of the Caribbean film, giving theater-goers the chance to go on another voyage across the seven seas. But as exciting as the adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow are, Zelda fans know that their favorite game series is forever the best source of seafaring and swashbuckling entertainment. This week’s contest will…

It’s a question that’s as old as fandom: who would win in a fight? Whether it’s Justice League vs. the Avengers, King Kong vs. Godzilla, or zombies vs. robots. We always put out there the possibility of some type of crossover event, regardless of the medium, because we want to see beloved characters from different franchises interact. Video games are no different. Nintendo was a forerunner in the trend with the Smash Brothers and Mario Kart series, and recently even…

Warning: Spoilers ahead. One of the most fascinating aspects in Breath of the Wild is the appearance of dragons. There are a total of 3 dragons in the Zelda game and although they are unfortunately not used in battle, these mighty beasts can be used to obtain certain items in the game. When these dragons appear, a beautiful little song begins to play. You can see these dragons emerge from a portal up in the sky. Players may wonder what exactly…

When you first play through Breath of the Wild, you aren’t met with a lot of tutorials as you travel from place to place. You will get the occasional warning from an NPC about certain locations, and even then they can be vague at times. That’s why it is a big surprise for players when they first attempt to reach Goron City with only meals at hand and fire resistance food. TerminalMontage on YouTube has perfectly recreated a player’s despair when…

Recently, the new Nintendo console made a big impact among the gaming community. The Nintendo Switch is a portable console that can be taken with you anywhere you travel to. These fans have taken it to the next level and made an awesome video showing their crazy adventures with the Switch at hand. These Nintendo fans called Юзя on YouTube have now shown the world just how far you can go as you take the Switch with you on new adventures. The…

Among the topics this week is one that I have been giving a lot of thought to for the past few weeks. I know it seems a little early, and at the risk of jumping the gun, I’ve been worried about third party games getting delayed releases on the Switch. In the end, something like that can only hurt the console. Aside from that, we discuss Andy’s article about a Zelda Movie that doesn’t suck, as well as what our…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s world is one of the largest in video game history, and is filled to the brim with towns, Bokoblin Camps, Lynels, Hinoxes, and (most importantly) Easter eggs. Nintendo is no stranger to having references to past Zelda games with each installment. Some examples include how the sages in Ocarina of Time have the same names as the different towns in The Adventure of Link, and how the sage in the The Wind Waker, Laruto, can…

Breath of the Wild has quickly become one of the best reviewed games of all time. After years of build up and hype, many fans were excited to finally have the chance to play the new installment. Not only did it fulfill it’s promise of reinventing the trusted Zelda formula, but it also broke tradition by including voice acting. So, imagine one fan’s surprise when after completing the game during a stream, one of her viewers turned out to be none…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild had quite the development to say the least. Announced in 2014, the game would see multiple delays, transformations, and eventually ports so it could be a launch title for the Nintendo Switch. March 3rd, 2017 is when the game finally came out after all those years, and critics went crazy for it… much the same way they had almost 20 years earlier when Ocarina of Time was released. Ocarina of Time had…
