It’s That Time Again!

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

The nominations have started for EDN’s Third Annual Golden Item Awards! The Golden Item Awards are given each year to honor exceptional sites in the Zelda Community.
As with the previous Golden Item Awards, nominations will run from February 1st to the 28th. The presentation date is set for March 3rd, 2007.
In addition, I have made […]

Three Dimensions Only

Saturday, January 27th, 2007

The roots of the Legend of Zelda are written with two letters: x and y. The series started off as a 2D game that would eventually set the standards for what 2D adventure games should be about. The sheer brute force of the first Legend of Zelda for the NES is still unparalleled today. When […]

A Link to the Internet

Friday, January 26th, 2007

I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I’m an obsessed fan.
You see, I am always on the lookout for good Zelda content, whether that’s stories or fanworks, musings or screenshots, and whenever I happen to see something that catches my eye, I archive the link. Into Firefox’s cache of tabs […]

Hellenophones of the Deep (Minor Spoilers)

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

(Editor’s Note: This is a crossposting of an article I wrote at the Desert Colossus. My intent in posting it here is to expose the issue to a wider audience. Oh, and there’s minor name spoilers ahead, I suppose, so for safety’s sake it behind the cut it goes. Oh, and I please ignorance if […]

In Communist Hylia, Song of Storms Plays You [updated]

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

[UPDATE: Fixed some bad HTML markup in the Future Elimination Theory section.]
Before you begin this article, I do want to forewarn you all. This article gets kinda deep into the Zelda timeline, so if you get an allergic reaction to that stuff, you might not want to read this. (On the other […]

Zelda Made Easy

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

In what may be a creepy coincidence to the previous “Phoelink Wright” post, a similar Zelda crossover has cropped up as a quasi-parody to the popular Objection! meme. Only this time you can do it old-skool style. Mix your image and quote and see how easy Zelda should have been.
Of course, if you remember other […]

Phoelink Wright: Hero Attorney

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

So yes, if you happened to read the first post of Darth Citrus’ latest A.S.S.A., yes, that little son of a Deku Scrub stole a good portion of the topic that I was working on (and, though I hate to admit it, he did it better than I!). However, they say that all is […]

Gossip Stones - The Lost Communication

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

This is no different in the Zelda world either. If you know that tiny tip to help kill Gohma, or “Twenty-Three is Number One” then you are going to be able to push the saviour of Hyrule a lot faster than if you had to systematically kill all of those Deku Scrubs and then realise […]

Where’d It All Go?

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

Alright, let’s state the obvious. We’re all Zelda fans here at this fine blog. The latest child that’s been born into our lovely little fan base for the Zelda series is none other than the now legendary Twilight Princess. Yes, it’s already legendary thanks to it’s enormous hype and even bigger fan base. It’s these […]

A.S.S.A - Spin-off the Series

Saturday, January 13th, 2007

Before we begin, I would like to correct some mistakes in my previous ASSA’s that I shamefully made regarding Twilight Princess.
In my December 2005 edition of A Somewhat Serious Article: Linkwhopin’, I erroneously stated that Ganondorf would receive the “mother of all Linkwhopin’s”. Link is not at all present in Twilight Princess and thus […]
