Game Theory's MatPat has recently posted a video looking at the hookshot and longshot through a scientific lens, trying to figure out exactly what effect it would cause to the human body if used. The video is fascinating, and really has quite a gruesome ending; I never could have imagined the hookshot could be so horrible, it just looks so awesome.

As it turns out, the force it would take to shoot the hookshot (which weighs more than 85 kilograms) would leave Link incapacitated for life...

Really Freakin' Clever, a YouTube channel that analyzes brilliant design choices through different video games, recently uploaded the second part of his "64 Things Wrong with Majora's Mask" series. These videos, like his more famous "64 Things Wrong with Ocarina of Time", take a very comedic approach to the games, making jokes about every supposed "flaw" they have.

In the first video from the Majora's Mask series, Josh takes a look at the first 3 days of the game. This new episode covers...

With a load of news surrounding Super Smash Bros., Majora's Mask 3D, and Pokémon ORAS it seems most of us have forgotten the majesty that was A Link Between Worlds

One of the elements I loved most about the game was the introduction of paintings, and the fact that rescuing the sages meant retrieving these paintings. As an artist myself, I decided to honour the beautiful visuals of the aforementioned game by recreating the painting our beloved Princess Zelda gets trapped in, and the video is...

Majora's Mask 3D comes out next year (no really!), but does that mean all of us are going to enjoy the various changes made? From texture updates to potential tutorial additions, we could be seeing some major alterations to an already stellar and beloved experience. Heck, they even added fishing... because that's always the best use of a hero's time with just 3 days to save the world, right? Are these changes something you are looking forward to, or are you rather unimpressed thus far? Keep in mind we're only looking at currently known changes...

Man at Arms has previously created the Master Sword but have now decided to give into fan demand to create the Fierce Deity Sword, just in time for Majora's Mask 3D's release next year. It's a special crafted sword that required more work than most of their traditional sword designs. They even used two different metals for each part of the two sided curved blade, and it actually was one of the toughest blades to mold the edges on and create a smooth texture throughout just due to the various angles.  It's a really neat process and one that I am always interested in learning more about...

American fans received Super Smash Bros. for Wii U last Friday, while European fans will have to wait until next friday to pick up the game alongside any of the awesome amiibo they're interested in! As the game did already release stateside, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that certain artistic and creative fans have already been tempering with the beloved figures.

Good morning and welcome back to the Caption Contest! Last week, you all came up with some great bits for "Spider-Fi" and I asked you to get creative with your best captions for Midna. Your submissions must have garnered a lot of laughs as every winner today got at least twenty likes from other fans. This Friday, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is getting released in the US. In celebration of the big release, we're going to caption an image from the game featuring Toon Link and a Cucco.

"It's Dangerous to go alone - take this!" - Old man in cave

We all know this moment.  We all love this moment.  But few have seen it portrayed as beautifully as this. In yet another time-lapse video, YouTuber artist, Adam Scythe shows off his skills in the watercolor medium, this time tackling one of the most memorable scenes of the entire Zelda series - and he absolutely nails it... 

Welcome back to Fan Fiction Friday...on Saturday. I promise I don't do this on purpose; I really try to get these out on Fridays. Last week, we were introduced to K'ger's story, "Silence is Golden": the exciting adventure of Link, the thief who became a hero. If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, I strongly suggest it. This week, Vopi has asked us to share their story, "Kasuto's Redemption".

What begins as a simple trip to Castle Town spirals into a fight for the world's survival. In the process, battles are raged, relationships are formed, sacrifices are made, lives are changed, and the secrets of the past surface to the present. - Vopi

The Zelda Project, a fan movement recreating famous scenes from Ocarina of Time using highly detailed costumes, character poses, and a ton of Photoshop, never ceases to amaze with their beautifully detailed renditions of scenes well known to most of our readers. The newest batch of pictures deviantart user, Adella, presented us with show off several snapshots of Princess Zelda in her usual, Hyrule Castle based surroundings and our faithful hero Link, looking over a beautifully crafted Hyrule Field at Death Mountain, to later be inside the Fire Temple itself, adventuring on...
