A Link to the Past: What the Legend of Zelda Series Has Left Behind

The Legend of Zelda is a game series with a history of over 30 years, and in that time the series has done a lot to expand upon itself.

There are, however, some things that just didn’t survive the overwhelming growth of the Zelda universe. ...

The Legend of Zelda: Convolution of Time

The latest reveal of Breath of the Wild has raised a question that arises every time a new Zelda game has been announced or released for the past decade or so: When does it take place? For a while, there seemed to be a comprehensive timeline. The Legend of Zelda was succeeded by Zelda II, taking place a few years later. The events of A Link to the Past were, as the Western region title suggested, ...

Review: Skyward Sword truly soars and is the reason to be a fan of Nintendo

When Nintendo sets out to make a Zelda title, there are always high expectations even before a single line of code is written. There are few games that have the legacy of the Zelda franchise, and even fewer still outside of Nintendo. Because of this, The Legend of Zelda is always in the limelight and is always held to a higher standard than any other video game around. With the release of Skyward ...

Zelda Skyward Sword: How far in are you?

I’m 48 hours in and still can’t see the finish line, although all indications are I’m about to turn the final corner. What’s more, there is a boatload of treasure, side missions, and islands I hope to unlock immediately prior to my final push to the summit. Yup, I’d say I could enjoy this thing for a good 15 more hours before beating and laying it to rest as my favo...

After first two dates, Zelda Skyward Sword overcomes most of its initial flaws

See Robin Williams slay moblins in this new Skyward Sword commercial

I loved Robin Williams in his many theatrical performances such as Hook and Dead Poets society, but  when I found out he named his daughter after my favorite video game franchise of all time, my love for him went up by the power of ten.

Don’t tell me what you saw when you watched this Skyward Sword video, I don’t want to know

I sure hope you like the above cinematic for Skyward Sword. I even hope that you learned a little about the game because of it. As for me, am planning on staying far, far away. Yes, I may have uploaded the video for you all to enjoy, but honestly, I don’t want to know anymore about the game than I already do for the simple fact of spoiling what should be one of the greatest adventures Nintendo h...

My Zelda is __________ this big!!!

Nintendo PR folk are calling Zelda: Skyward Sword their biggest video game project ever. Some 50-100 hours of gameplay, according to Miyamoto. Here’s hoping the majority of it will deliver, and keep the masses engaged for more than the paltry 10% effort they usually put into these things. (wink, wink)

After 25 years, Zelda still has staying power

What’s the most-wanted game this holiday? According to Nielsen Research, it’s Modern Warfare 3. Not far behind, however, is Zelda: Skyward Sword at number six, the only game from the ’80s to make the top 20. In fact, it’s one of only two games from the ’80s or ’90s, the other being Madden Football. Not a big surprise, I know, but the staying power of Zelda still...
