For some seasoned fans, the original The Legend of Zelda for the NES has lost some its magic over many, many repeat playthroughs. Luckily, the Zelda Randomizer project has strived to eliminate this staleness by making every playthough of the game a brand new experience. Since its release in March of last year, the Zelda Randomizer has allowed players to customize and randomize several aspects of the Zelda experience, from cave / dungeon locations, to item placements, to enemy spawns. The project recently released its 2.3 update, adding several new features to the mix...

In all my years talking about Zelda games (and conversely, playing a handful to completion before the public got their hands on it) one question always creeps up about my experience with the title - how long did it take me to complete the game? How long do you think someone less experienced than you will take to complete it? Both are completely subjective in nature because the information given really only is relevant to my own experience. I can tell you Zelda U takes one hundred hours to 100%, but you may only take fifty. Someone else may take two hundred...

There have always been differences in opinion when it comes to Zelda speed running. Some gamers enjoy doing or watching glitched runs because they want to see/play through all the ins and outs of a Zelda game. Others disagree and believe that any form of a time trial-style run of the game should be done in a more traditional, glitchless kind of way. The most recent speed run of a title from the Zelda series will please the latter as a world record has been made on an iconic Zelda game...

DidYouKnowGaming is back with more Easter eggs for the Zelda series. This time they tackle the second half of A Link to the Past and finishing up with around half of Link's Awakening. There are so many Easter eggs in the Zelda series that it's nearly impossible to cover all of them for any single game in just one video. Especially when you start diving deep into Link's Awakening, which contains so many references...

The Marcus Hedges Trend Orchestra is creating a 46 track Ocarina of Time symphony. We don't know what tracks are included, though we have a small taste of it in a teaser video. Unfortunately that's about all we know at this time. There is an official website for it which you can get an email notification from for when it gets released...

It's been a long time since I last fired up Four Swords Adventures, but that doesn't mean there aren't many out there still cracking away at the title. This time around ZMaster91 has set a new Any% world record, clocking in at 2:07:03. The run has been verified by the find folks over at ZeldaSpeedRuns, the official tracker of Zelda speed run records. Any% is the category that allows for glitches and as such...

IGN recently updated their overall top 25 3DS games list and it now includes not only Ocarina of Time 3DMajora's Mask 3D, and A Link Between Worlds (3 titles that were previously on the list), but it now includes Tri Force Heroes. Given the overall impressions being mixed for that title, it making the top 25 overall 3DS game list is pretty impressive from the worlds largest video game outlet. You can see the full list...

As noted earlier, IGN has had a chance to play quite a bit of Twilight Princess HD. They sat down to talk about that experience in their weekly Nintendo podcast. Jose Otero specifically was the one who got to play it and they go to great lengths to ease people's minds on the visuals. Essentially, the game looks way better than the trailers are giving it justice for. On the flip side, a lot of the issues...

We've certainly had a lot to cover in regards to Twilight Princess HD, which makes sense given the game is releasing in less than a month. One aspect that was extremely intriguing for those who like a challenge is the double damage mechanic offered by the Ganondorf amiibo. While this was a nice addition, Hero Mode's have traditionally done the same thing... and it does in this game as well...
