New gameplay footage has been uploaded to the web of Tingle in action, but this time on an adventure map. This bearded elf like man wrecks any enemies in his path with his trusty balloon. When he sprints, confetti shoots out behind him. He's got pretty awesome dance moves, too. Watch as YouTuber ZergHive powers his way through this level...

With Nintendo releasing the Majora's Mask DLC for Hyrule Warriors less than a week from today in North America, more and more new details are surfacing. The DLC pack is already available for purchase in Europe, where fans are posting video footage online of the newly updated game. This particular video gives and in depth look at one of my favorite aspects of Hyrule Warriors: the costumes...


The time has come for yet another test of wit, creativity, and the use of expensive software for trivial purposes: a Photoshop Contest is upon us!

The gist of this contest is, we're asking readers to submit the funniest, zaniest, most creative, or most awe-inspiring pictures they can produce with image alteration software, and submit them as a comment below this article. But before we discuss this week's contest, let's honor the winners from last week's contest: Grandma's Adventure!

Nintendo has had an iffy history with gamers using their IPs on YouTube, to say the least.  After vocally establishing that they did not condone this, they turned around and announced they would soon be building a program through which YouTube content creators would be able to share advertising profits with Nintendo.  After several months, the company has finally opened a beta of its program, and has begun accepting applications... 

Owners of Hyrule Warriors in Japan can now enjoy all the goodness that comes with the new Majora's Mask DLC. It's live, and that means all the Tingle and Fierce Deity that fans can handle... 

When Hyrule Warriors was coming to be, even Eiji Aonuma, the current producer of the series, was a little nervous.  This was an unprecedented move for Nintendo, taking one of their most cherished franchises and teaming up with another group to turn out a different entry.  While this was certainly a gamble, the sales data regarding the crossover title that we received last week suggested that it's turning out for the best.  Now, with an official announcement from Koei Tecmo, we can rest easy knowing that Hyrule Warriors is...  

Majora's Mask 3D will soon arrive in 3DS units across the globe, but there is one important factor to consider: Are these sort of remakes actually better than the original experience? In the case of Majora's Mask 3D, the closest comparison we can make right now is Ocarina of Time 3D. Released in the summer of 2011, Ocarina of Time 3D overhauled the entirety of Ocarina of Time, including an all new Master Quest version and making equipment swapping much more streamlined, thus improving the Water Temple...

Ocarina of Time holds a unique place in the world of video games. Aside from being honored as one of the greatest video games ever made, its sidekick character Navi is often regarded around the Internet as among the most annoying characters in gaming. Quantifying how annoying Navi can be or how often she held the player's hand throughout an average playthrough of Ocarina of Time was always one of my main reasons for conducting this audit of Zelda games, and I hope readers will be as satisfied with the results as I am.

For those new to Hey, Look, Listen, this is a series of articles that seeks to objectively analyze how much a collection of Zelda games — namely Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword — hold the player's hand and excessively guides them through the experience each game offers. Basically, this is a look at backseat driving in video games, focusing on titles in the Zelda franchise...

For those unaware, the Odolwa boss fight in Majora's Mask 3D has been completely revamped to the point where you have to throw out the old strategy to beat him originally and attempt all new tactics. As such, I am giving you a spoiler warning right now - the entirety of this fight is spoiled ahead.

Originally there were two ways to beat Odolwa. You could pop up and do damage to him from below by popping out of a Deku flower... 

GameSpot recently did a feature on Zelda U, as the game continues to gain traction in the mainstream media despite not having anything new to report on since The Game Awards last year. Danny, Chris, and Peter from GameSpot talk about what they want to see in Zelda U, which happens to raise a lot of interesting ideas. One idea is camping and forging your own materials, creating a survivalist mentality with nature. This includes things like a day and night cycle, which seems like a given right now but hasn't technically been confirmed...
