The Legend of Zelda

  1. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess: An Artistic Showdown

    Becoming the brand.

    I’ve been on a Zelda kick lately. So to satiate my craving, I powered through Ocarina of Time 3D (wow, that water temple sure got streamlined), replayed Majora’s Mask, and finally picked up A Link Between Worlds. And this got me to thinking—Ocarina of Time’s value in the grand scheme of things is not so much as a self-contained game anymore.

  2. Review: Hyrule Warriors Unites the Zelda Kingdom in a Rupee-Happy Showdown

    Link is outnumbered in more ways than one.

    The Legend of Zelda has always been Link’s story. Sure, Ganon might be raising a dark army, and Zelda may be the magical princess, but it’s a boy’s journey. Only he can wield the Master Sword, yada, yada, yada. Hyrule Warriors feels less about Link and more about, well, whoever you want.

  3. HEY, LISTEN: It’s the Honest Trailer For The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    HEY, LISTEN. HEY, LISTEN. HEY, LISTEN. HEY, LISTEN.

    One of the best games for N64 (and arguably of all time), The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time still isn't without its flaws. You know what I'm talking about: Navi. But the Honest Trailer pokes some good fun at the rest of the Zelda franchise, too, and it's all in the spirit of laughs. I liked Mario 64 better, anyways.

  5. 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.

  6. 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. It’s a very polarizing but uniformly upsetting issue that lingers on in this otherwise great community like cat pee on an oriental rug.

  7. Hyrule Warriors Guidebook Shows Unused Character Designs For Female Link

    Hey! Hey! Listen!

    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. But we could have had it all, if this art book is any indication. We could have had... Linkle.

  9. 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.
