Most Famous (Infamous?) Dungeons

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

Ocarina had it, Waker didn’t have enough of it, and fans can’t get enough of it. No, I’m not talking about being free of Tingle! I’m talking about dungeons! Not surprisingly, the dungeons are the life-blood of the Zelda games; they’re the parts that make us rack our heads about how to […]

Zelda Revolution 1st March?

Friday, November 25th, 2005

Today I was informed that the gaming website, Gamestop had released their official date for the Zelda Revolution. So we can now pre-order the game. However, I find that this is chilling. A game that we’ve got no information about, a game that we don’t even know will exist, and sites like Gamestop are giving estimated release dates to!

Club Nintendo Apologises for Mistaken Report

A Few Quick Notes

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2005

Sorry for spamming you with entries tonight, but it has to be done.
First, it’s come to my attention that Zelda Genesis was hacked into this month. Not only that, but the hacker managed to gain access to the webmaster’s E-mail and IM accounts. Also, I’ve heard that an administrator had […]

Yes Virginia, there is a Timeline… Sorta

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2005

Way back when, in an interview with Superplay magazine, Shigeru Miyamoto indicated that there is a master timeline. And, to keep track of this giant meta-story, there is a “master document.”
For every Zelda game we tell a new story, but we actually have an enormous document that explains how the game relates to the others, […]

To RPG, Or Not to RPG?

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2005

Aside from the neverending shipping debates and the timeline debates, the biggest debate—what some would actually call… controversy… le gasp!—in the Zelda community is the whole concept of genre. It seems to be mankind’s incessant desire to classify things. From the whole taxonomy of life divided into kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, […]

New Features

[UPDATE: The Live Preview function is back and working this time in all browsers I’ve tested. If you have problems, don’t hesitate to E-mail me.]
A lot of people have complained about the comment system that WordPress has, and I’ve finally had the time to go hunting for mods to the WordPress system to help […]

Zelda Released on Silver?

Sunday, November 20th, 2005

No, I’m not talking about cartridge colours. (GameCube uses DVDs, people! They’re already silver!) I’m talking about the silver screen.
According to an issue of the Spanish Club Nintendo, Reggie Fils-Aime has supposedly confirmed an effort to create a Zelda movie while talking about the efforts under way to creating a movie based […]

The Zelda Cartoon – Don’t Hate It

Saturday, November 19th, 2005

I don’t know about you but I was very excited when DiC, in conjunction with Shout! Factory, announced the release of the collectors edition DVD of the Zelda Cartoon. For years we’ve had to put up with shoddy, poor resolution videos and fake DVDs plus uAV Corporation’s staggered random episode releases. Finally the longtime fans of this series are getting what they deserve. Personally I can’t wait for my copy to arrive and I’ve already heard from some of my American friends that it’s been cleaned up very nicely indeed. Finally it means I can have a good quality section about the cartoon on my site with decent screenshots and media clips.

One Hundred

Craving Twilight Princess news, anyone?
Acording to a Japanese article, “between the single-player adventure and all of its hidden side-quests, there are over 100 hours of gameplay to be experienced. Also on the subject of size, it’s said that the game in general is much bigger than any Zelda before it. Finally, the article goes […]
