Ever since Nintendo announced DLC for the Zelda series, people hotly debate the news. Some people enjoyed the thought of Breath of the Wild’s world expanding, while others swore off getting the DLC. The first DLC pack is going to be released this summer, and Nintendo has recently detailed what was included in the pack. A hard mode, trial of the sword, and various armor sets. I’m excited for the DLC, but personally am looking forward to the second pack a bit…

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…

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,…

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…

Among the many changes to the Zelda series that Breath of the Wild brought, one of my favorite changes was the ability to change armor. Knight armor for increased defense? Got it. Sheikah clothes for moving stealthily? Check. Glow in the dark bone outfit for… something? Well, that’s there too. The amount of clothing available is soon to he even bigger, as a couple new amiibo are set to be released in the next months that will allow you to…

There’s been a lot of discussion about the recently revealed DLC pack for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild lately, but one piece of chatter caught me off guard. While I was discussing whether the DLC pack gave you a good bang for your buck, a friend of mine was of the opinion that it was way too expensive when you factor in the cost of the other DLC. Confused, I asked what he meant and he replied…

I have to admit something: after seeing the reward (and I use that term as loosely as I possibly can) for collecting all 900 Korok seeds, I said to myself “nope”. I had already invested so many hours into Breath of the Wild, I had so many other games to play on top of everything else going on with life that there was no way I was looking for an extra 550 Korok seeds that served no purpose other than…

E3 2017 will soon be upon us. In a time where gaming is more popular than it ever was, E3 is a highly anticipated event by gamers all around the globe. Microsoft, Bethesda, Nintendo, and more will show off new projects in attempts to create headlines and wow potential customers. In the past, E3 has been a great stage for the Zelda franchise, especially last year. The series has made appearances through the last few E3 conferences in some way shape or…
