As long as we’ve been gamers, there have been times where we were gripping a controller with frustration and rage. All of us have stories where we banged our heads against a wall, whether it was a puzzle, boss fight, or just some enemy that always got the best of us. For me, I’d always have to step away for a breather before I’d break a controller. After that, I’d be able to figure out the solution or pattern when…

Whether you love it or hate it, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess certainly has its interesting characters. Ranging from the enigmatic Goron Elders to your companion Midna, Twilight Princess offers several characters with interesting quirks. However, the most mysterious one could also make an interesting feasible comeback: The Hero’s Shade. The Hero’s Shade is a warrior who teaches Link several hidden skills throughout Twilight Princess, ranging from the Ending Blow, to the Back Slice, to the Great Spin. What…

Nintendo’s foray into the mobile world has proven fruitful thus far. Spearheaded by the insane success of Pokémon Go (despite having nothing to do with it) Nintendo has released a solid line up of titles to keep the ball rolling. Miitomo and Fire Emblem Heroes both proved popular enough and Super Mario Run was a big hit. Nintendo doesn’t look to be slowing down either as Animal Crossing is just over the horizon as well. It shouldn’t be a surprise…

Feature image by ever-so-excited As I’m sure many of you guys did, I sat down and saw Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 last weekend. While maybe not as good as the original in this writers eyes, I still enjoyed myself immensely and was cracking up for a good chunk of the movie. As I tend to do after the movie was over, I took a second to ponder where I’d rank Guardians Vol. 2 among the rest of…

Hello there, my friends. It would appear that Zelda Informer’s Caption Contest is just about ready to begin. The contest we saw last week focused on a jubilant blue horse making a power play to the screenshot’s foreground. But as we’ve all learned, for every happy horsey found in Breath of the Wild, there is a fearsome beast that wants nothing more than to tear Link to shreds. This week’s contest features one such creature: the ever-ferocious Lynel.

Breath of the Wild is certainly a massive game that details an adventure that could compare to a story of an epic. Link and Zelda are shown to struggle against Ganon, only to fail at their attempt to save their kingdom. Then, Link, after 100 years of slumber, finally wakes and decides to try and save Hyrule once more. While Zelda’s character is massively fleshed out and she is shown to be curious, studious, and wise from the knowledge she gains,…

Hi there, friends. It seems that Zelda Informer’s famed Photoshop Contest is back in business, and we’ve got ourselves a somewhat strange premise this week. A Zelda-themed version of the board game Clue recently hit virtual store shelves, recreating the classic murder mystery game as a legendary quest to stop Ganon. Now, deviating from the original Clue makes complete sense when shoehorning the concept into The Legend of Zelda, but I can’t help but imagine what a real Zelda crime…

This week, Andy and I talk a bit about the psychology of the Legend of Zelda, his opinions on Darksiders, and building the ultimate Zelda game. If you’d like to read his full editorial on his ultimate Zelda game, check it out here. Podbean | iTunes | YouTube Playlist | Download

We have started our very own Zelda Book Club. The first episode is now available and it covers the initial chapter of the Ocarina of Time Manga. In this initial video, we talk about the events of the first chapter, examining the differences between the Manga and the game, and what we expect in the upcoming chapters. In the follow-up video we will be reading through both chapters 2 and 3. We would like the Book Club to be as…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild brought a handful of new additions to Link’s repertoire in the form of runes. Items such as Magnesis and Stasis allowed the Hylian hero to perform acts that simply weren’t possible in previous installments. That said, you’ve got to respect the classics every now and then. With such a vast sandbox, I wish we could have had just a bit of a wider variety of toys to play with. A few items…
