Whose Blog?: The Curse of Majora

Sunday, May 28th, 2006

It’s time for Whose Blog Is It Anyway?! The show where everything’s made up, and the points don’t matter! That’s right, the points are about as useful as Malon’s father! Hi, I’m your host, Drew Linky. C’mon let’s have some fun!
First off, my apologies for being extremely tardy with this Whose Blog? Life has […]

How Much Is That Wii in the Window?

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

Gamespot is announcing that Nintendo has announced the price point for their new system Wii… kinda, sorta, not really.
Although for now the pricing is not exact, [the Wii] will not exceed $250 in America or 25,000 yen [roughly US$225] in Japan. No estimate was announced for the European market, but the indication given was that […]

Twilight Princess: The Gamecube Demo vs. The Wii Demo

Saturday, May 20th, 2006

There’s been a lot of discussion about the release of Twilight Princess for the Gamecube and the Wii. Will they be released separately? Aside from the compatibility with the Wiimote, will there be any other differences between the two versions?
After playing the Wii version of Twilight Princess at this year’s E3, though the immersive […]

For all who are interested (and I know all you are, why else visit ZeldaBlog?) the following link will take you to IGN’s video media page where they have posted there the full seven minute Twilight Princess demo inCLUDing the boss battle I didn’t get to play (darn you E3, darn you straight to heck).

Whose Blog? #3

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

[UPDATE: Topic has been decided, and the comments section has been closed. I’ll get to this Wednesday or Thursday.]
With the chaos of last week over (and also this week for me!), I think it’s time for another Whose Blog Is It Anyway. So, you know the drill. Post a comment about […]

Metafiction: War of the Mascot

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

It was a time of war and devastation. It was a time where armies of fans would rally behind banners of the hedgehog or the plumber, behind banners of the bandicoot or the swordsman-hero. It was a time when ammunition spent between the armies was measured in coins and question blocks, power-ups and […]

E3 Impressions of Zelda Wii

Sunday, May 14th, 2006

Given that this is my first article here at ZeldaBlog as an actual contributor I thought it’d only be fitting that I make my first post something of some significance. So when I got the opportunity to go to this years Electronics Entertainment Expo my first thoughts were to write up my impressions here at […]

The Great E3 Wrap-Up

Saturday, May 13th, 2006

So it’s the weekend! E3 is officially over, and thus begins the onerous wait for the next Zelda games as well as the Wii. It’s going to be a good haul as well; a quick look to the counter on the main page says that we have a really long way to go […]

Link Appears in Wii Smash Bros.

Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

[UPDATE: IGN has some better pictures here.]
[UPDATE 2: And for the fangirls in the audience… And then for the fanboys…]
[UPDATE 3: Masamune tells me that you have to see the video. There’s one here at GameSpot that requires registration; IGN has one here that doesn’t.]
I was just over at Joystiq and happened […]

A Wii Bitty Light Gun

Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

IGN has a report up on their site about a new attachment for the Wii controller–a light gun. Reminiscent of the Zapper from way back in the days of yore and the NES, this will plug into the extension part of the controller and be used in games like FPSes. There’s an analog […]
