The Writing’s on the Grave

Thursday, November 30th, 2006

Before I start, there are spoilers in this post (minor name spoilers), so peek behind the curtain to continue if you are so inclined.

In the graveyards of Kakariko Village and Hyrule Castle, there is the same phrase written on each large headstone—in Wind Waker’s Hylian script—but let’s put aside the anachronism present there and focus […]

Links about Link on the Internet

Monday, November 27th, 2006

There’s been a ton of Zelda traffic around the Internet yesterday and today, and I wanted to just get it all out on the ‘Blog in one fell swoop so I can get back to plain ol’ articles. So here’s a myriad of things that you should all care about.
As a fair-weathered warning, this […]

On the Cutting Room Floor

Sunday, November 26th, 2006

Our first sighting of the new Twilight Princess game was way back in 2004 during E3 week, and boy, doesn’t that seem a long time ago. Can you believe it? We’ve been waiting impatiently for Zelda to finally come out on the GameCube Wii (add GameCube) for 2½ years! There was lots […]

Twilight Princess Spoiler-Free Review

Friday, November 24th, 2006

Every good thing always has to come to an end. Quite unfortunate is the fact that Twilight Princess is no exception to this rule. Yes, the game does have an ending point, as I can now officially (and very sadly) relate to you. Granted, there are many amazing mini-games, collection quests, and […]

Iron Boots? No Iron Boots Here. Honest!

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2006

Let’s be completely frank; Link carries a lot of stuff around. No human being (or Hylian, for that matter) could honestly violate physics so badly as to have all that stuff at a moment’s notice and get away with it. (Physics is a harsh mistress, after all.) Even if we were to […]

Link Is Feelin’ a Little Blue (Tiny Spoilers)

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2006

Isn’t that getup for Link absolutely wonderful? (You’ll notice I didn’t call it Blue Tunic. That’s because it’s not called Blue Tunic, for those of you who have not gotten that far.)
And yes, I smudged out the items on the right side of the screen for a good reason. This screenshot happened […]

The Man behind the Twilight (Medium Spoilers)

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

[EDIT: Fixed spelling. Thanks doublehelix.]
So you want to know who’s responsible for the Twilight Realm, that thing that’s wracking so much havoc upon Hyrule? Here’s a big shocker… it’s not Ganondorf… not unless Ganondorf has another name he’s going by these days. No, it seems there’s a new gunslinger in town, […]

The First Three Hours (Tiny Spoilers Only)

Friday, November 17th, 2006

I believe this picture needs no explanation.
Even though this is marked as a spoiler, I’m going to keep the spoilers constrained to vague hints and game structure alone so that you don’t feel cheated out of anything. (After all, thousands of other sites will have the juicy details for you.)
I am just shy of […]

Twilight Princess Manual [link fixed]

Friday, November 17th, 2006

[EDIT: I’d like to mention that the artwork of the manual contains characters that we HAVE NOT YET SEEN in any trailer that I am aware of. (I have been avoiding trailers that show spoilers, so your results might vary.) The story I have transcribed below is by and large the safest […]

“Twelve” Days to TP

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

Before anyone gets their tunics in a knot, yes… yes… I know that it’s only three days (soon two) until Twilight Princess for the US… and soon 15 days (or more) for those that aren’t in the US. Trust me; the math is definitely not lost on me. Don’t you worry none about […]
