Our very own Daniel, one of our primary video content creators, has taken on the task of analyzing the new Breath of the Wild footage. It's a different approach compared to GameXplain's, who seems more focused on where things in the world are located and less on cross comparisons to other titles in the series. Some new and different ideas are presented, which seems to be true with every single analysis of this footage. I'm not kidding, the more people that look at the footage, the more new ideas and realizations seem to crop up...

I absolutely love the Zelda timeline. I know a lot of people hate it, thinking it's too complicated and full of plot holes. It is extremely complicated, and took a awhile for me to understand. Why are there three splits? Why does one split get seven games, while the others only get three? Regardless, I love the timeline, and I almost have it memorized. The one question everyone wants to know the answer to in the present day is where Breath of the Wild fits in the scheme of things. Is it a sequel to The Wind Waker? Is it possible that it comes before the timeline splits? No, that's can't be right... Maybe it comes after Ocarina of Time, but before...

This week's podcast is a bit of a special affair, as the full cast runs just under 3 hours in length. We realize that's a lot to digest in a single sitting, so we have split up the cast into multiple parts that we will be releasing each day, with the final release being the full 3 hour cast in video form. This is important to note since each release will include the full 3 hour audio, as we are only splitting up the video portions. Today we're bringing to you our 90 minute "end of podcast" The Game Awards 2016 prediction special. We go through almost every single award and the various nominees, giving predictions on which title we think will win each award along with the title we personally want to win each award...

Eric and yours truly return this week on the Nintendo Prime Podcast to talk about a slew of items on the agenda, including Super Mario Run's price, a rumored Pokemon GO update, even more Nintendo Switch rumors (they never seem to end!), and possibly the most important conversation of the week - how I ended up recommending my dad buy a PlayStation 4 despite the fact the Nintendo Switch would fit his lifestyle way more (and why I feel guilty doing so). It's a very interesting week as things for this podcast are starting to come together...

For the first time in Zelda Informer’s history, we are ranking literally every Zelda game in existence. Be it barely workable Game & Watch style titles, completely written off CD-i classics, or highly acclaimed games with historical precedence, we finally sat down to compile a collective list of every Zelda game in existence (fan games, not included).

This isn’t the first time we have dabbled into ranking Zelda titles though, as this actually marks our 3rd annual ranking (one per year, the last three years, around the same time). Each year we have done our rankings differently. When we started this back in 2014, we stuck strictly to canon timeline games. Last year we created a top 10 list instead of ranking the whole series. This year, we’re going all out, ranking every single Zelda title that has existed in an official capacity at one point or another. All told, it spans 30 titles. 30 years of Zelda, 30 games… this is going to be a tough one. Here is our final collective ranking...

Alfred and yours truly do something a little different this week in celebration of Thanksgiving. No, we don't stuff our face with Turkey and see who throws up first, but we do something that might be even more entertaining than any sort of eating contest. Before I dive into that, we do go over some of the juiciest Nintendo Switch rumors from this past week, including a  full slate of "confirmed" games and when they will be releasing, including a lengthy conversation about Breath of the Wild not making it at launch...

Step aside fan games and the thousands of musical renditions out there. Today "Terrible Fates", a fan created short film and album, have released. However, unlike most other fan projects in existence, including all those lovely Unreal Engine 4 ordeals, this is one project you could easily be forgiven for thinking is an officially licensed and created Nintendo project. Because simply put, the level of quality of both the film and the album rival even some of the most professional and official offerings. The Zelda Cartoon series can't hold a candle to this short 4+ minute journey...

As noted in this week's podcast, there was a second part due to us having a full two hour special with a whole hour dedicated to deciding upon who we would cast in a full blown, live action, Zelda movie. It's honestly a conversation we haven't had since the days of the old Netflix rumors a couple years ago and in truth, we've never sat down for a fully serious conversation on the topic until just now. We even go as far as to pick out composers for the score, recognizing the importance music can really play in a movie like this...

On this weeks episode of the Podcast Alfred and yours truly go toe to toe talking about the  latest Switch and Breath of the Wild rumors. We then turn everything on it's head to talk about who we would cast in a Zelda movie. That being said, the Zelda movie stuff will be saved for a bit later date, as we split up this week's podcast for your viewing pleasure. Well, sort of...

It seems as if we can't go a few days without hearing more news and rumors regarding the Nintendo Switch or Breath of the Wild. We at Zelda Informer always try to keep up with the news daily, and get it out to those who wish to read it as soon as possible. Every year we look for more additions to add to our news team to help with this endeavor, and for this hiring spree, we just might be looking for you. News Editors take up a rather large chunk of our post volume, as we make...
