HEY! ... Listen.
Hey, remember that nifty video we showed you a while back of the Temple of Time from Zelda: Ocarina of Time recreated in Unreal Engine 4? Well, this one might not have quite the level of updating that the other one went through, but it does have the added bonus of being playable, so we can all drool over the possibilities if Nintendo decided to go this direction with HD Zelda.Read More

Hey, at least you and your family weren't cursed to be spiders for all time.
The first day back at work after a long con weekend can be kind of depressing. This Dorkly post will not help.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
Boring old stories for video game? Ocarinah.
I live a strange double life, stuck between the diametrically opposed worlds of writing and gaming. When I go to an English class and mention that I’m a gamer, people treat it as a non-sequitur and the chatter moves on to the latest in an ever-growing list of efforts to get John Green to come to campus. But when I go to a game studies class, the conversation completely flips, and I get blank stares or condescending remarks if I try to defend story as an important part of games.Read More
Talented violinist? Check. Sheik cosplay? Check. Majestic scenery? Check. Yep, this one's good. This rendition of "Bolero of Fire" isn't the only video game music Taylor Davis has in her repertoire. Her YouTube channel is full of themes from games and geekery, and she sells cover albums as well. I can also recommend her cover of Mass Effect 3's "An End, Once And For All," if you'd like to start your Sunday feeling like someone's punched you in the chest.Read More
it's time to play the music
Here's a woman playing a medley of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time music on a Zelda-branded ocarina while wearing a Zelda shirt. Oh, and her username is OcarinaDiva. I love it when a plan comes together. Meanwhile (having not played the game) I had no idea an ocarina was a real thing, but she says she's been playing it for twelve years now and that it's her primary instrument. Enjoy!

Great Moments in Advertising
Robin Williams is a genius. He had a child in 1989 and named her Zelda knowing 22-years later it would make for amazing marketing opportunities. Ok, actually he named her that because he loved the video game so much but just go with it. You may remember the Williams' previously advertised for Nintendo's Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in a saccharine sweet spot but this new one, for Four Swords, is even better because it features a stupendous transformation. I won't spoil it for you - watch! (via DigitalSpy)Read More
YouTube user olilord, gives us all a New Year's treat, playing the Korobeiniki, otherwise known as the Tetris theme song, on Link's ocarina in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The creepy look on his face probably stems from him reading the button combination to play the song, and not from being possessed by a Poe.
