Hey! I bet a hefty percentage of you are going to this Zelda site to read about Zelda stuff! I also know for a fact that several of you here have a deep desire to stab something in the heart! Well, have I got the Do-it-Yourself project for you! But first, let's watch somebody else Do-it-Herself!
You see, world-famous YouTube celebrity Suzy Hanson (fresh off of her marriage to small-time animator Egoraptor) has just released such a video! In it, she walks you step by step through the process of making your very own (MAKING SOMEBODY ELSE'S IS A CRIME) corkboard based on the classic Zelda heart containers! It's a very simple crafts project and the materials cost less than TEN DOLLARS! You have no reason not to make this! What are you, not a REAL fan?! Stab your Master Sword push pins into this beautiful corkboard TODAY!
What are you waiting for? Improve your life! (Did you see what I did there!?) Watch the video after the jump!
Courtesy of IGN, we now know that somebody was cool enough to to make a Wind Waker-themed car in Forza 5. The Toon Link and Triforce-endowed vehicle can be quickly seen to your left, but there's also a video of this "shiny gold" and "sky blue" racer drifting and driving across the track. The video, a minute long, shows the car from various angles and in states of damage.

I imagine you are familiar with Smooth McGroove. He is internet-famous for doing one-person a capellas of famous video game music pieces. Some of his previous works include a rendition of the Kirby: Super Star's Gourmet Race theme, the Tetris Theme, and F-Zero's Mute City theme. However, his most recent song is particularly near and dear to many a Zelda fans' hearts: the Lost Woods theme from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. And, if I may say, it is particularly well-done. Do you like this song as much as I do? If it isn't apparent, I really like this song.
"YouTube personality and Nintendo enthusiast TJ Smith hosted a Legend of Zelda themed dinner party with five friends. Each guest contributed to the potluck-style soiree with a homemade dish inspired by the game. It was a fun night of good eats, games, and of course - playing with your food!" — Nintendo
In this video by Nintendo, these gamers sit around and talk about their love for A Link Between Worlds. They also get into a discussion about their very first Zelda games, and what it meant to them. While meant to be a fun way to promote the game, I feel like this is something that we, as Zelda fans, do quite often. We always make the point that no matter what Zelda game comes out, our first will always be our most memorable. Watch the video after the jump!
A little while back, Nintendo announced that they would be revealing four trailers for the recently-released The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on their official Instagram account. We've been hard at work preparing our A Link Between Worlds walkthrough, but just because the game is out doesn't mean we can't still enjoy the four trailers! Head past the jump and you can see all four trailers from Nintendo's Instagram.
As we probably all know by now, A Link Between Worlds has come out in stores around the world. But if you haven't managed to play it already, like me, you can instead bask in the glory of the gorgeous visuals in this French launch trailer. Oh, and of course new areas and gameplay.
I'm excited to see what Lorule has to offer, and to see why Lorule has another Triforce. But hey, who doesn't like a good mystery? Just a shame I don't speak French. At all.

Two weeks ago, Game Theory, a popular YouTube channel, discussed the possibility of Link being dead in Majora's Mask. I mean, that's a pretty long fall in the beginning of the game right? And they had a good point, although I didn't quite buy it.
This week, however, they talked about Link's quest being pointless to begin with. The moon caused quite a big explosion for something that moved so slow. And what would the other dangers be? It's still a pretty big celestial object hanging in the sky. Thankfully, they've got you covered.

A Link Between Worlds came out a few days ago, and GameXplain has made a compilation of all the glorious boss fights of this spectacular game. I've not been able to play the game yet myself, but when I see these boss fights, I can't help but get excited.

We've been busy as all heck with A Link Between Worlds, but that doesn't mean the fan base out there has slowed down one tiny bit. Taylor Davis has just released her album, Melodies of Hyrule. It features 16 Zelda themed songs that have been re-orchestrated and combined with amazing violin work. It is some of the best musical bliss I have heard since the release of Twilight Symphony. Today we are featuring her music video that was created to promote the album, which features a blended combination of the Song of Time and the Song of Storms from Ocarina of Time. It is probably the first time I have actively seen a musical artist perform on a string instrument in the rain. It's gorgeous.
Check out her work after the jump.
While many of us are plugging away, adventuring through Hyrule and Lorule in A Link Between Worlds (Don't forget to use our Spoiler-Free A Link Between Worlds Walkthrough if you get stumped folks), Super Mario 3D World is arguably the single biggest game launched today out of Nintendo. That's no disrespect to Zelda of course, but the Wii U is the platform most in need of quality games such as this. Mario and Link really don't have much in common, though Mario taking a few things out the Zelda realm hasn't been unheard of in the past (hello, Mario 3D Land). This time around however, the reference is extremely obvious.
