  2. Nintendo Tweets 2014/15 Release Timeframe List With Wii U Zelda and Star Fox

    Get N or get out.

    Nintendo is getting aggressive about its release timetable to try to turn things around for the Wii U, and this newly-tweeted schedule for 2014 and 2015 says we'll have both a new Zelda and Star Fox by the end of the year—not to mention the huge list of Wii U games for the first half of 2015 on top of both Smash Bros. games coming out this year. That's certainly one way to turn around the idea that there's no reason to buy your company's console.

  3. Games for Girls? How About Games for Everyone?

    Gender-neutral games are too hard to animate.

    The portrayal and treatment of women in and around video games is a sore subject for a lot of us. It’s been talked about to death, and yet it still doesn’t seem like we’re making much progress.

    Nintendo's been surprisingly good with gender representation in the upcoming Wii U game Hyrule Warrior so far; the overwhelming majority of playable hero characters are women and girls from the Legend of Zelda franchise.

  6. There Never Really Was a “Dark Link,” Link and the Zelda Series Are Just Racist

    It's dangerous to go alone. Someone might spread racist legends about you.

    Gaming has a big problem with gender, race, and white saviors. Maybe that's because Hyrule's historians got it all wrong, and there was never any such thing as Dark Link—the other Zelda characters are just horrible bigots. Here's the real story behind Link's xenophobia and a surprisingly accurate critique on the representation of minorities in a classic game series.

  9. Zelda Opens a Bottle of Whoop-Ass in Hyrule Warriors as the Game Adds Even More Women

    Your princess is not in another castle.

    We may have been disappointed that speculation about a female protagonist/playable character in the next main-series Zelda game turned out to be wrong, but Hyrule Warriors is really picking up the slack in that department with more women than you can shake a deku stick at. The latest Japanese character trailer for the game once again begs the question, "Does she just let Link save her to give his self-esteem a boost?"
