Difficulty (or Lack Thereof?) in Zelda

Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

First off, I want to briefly apologise for the recent shortage of articles on my part. I needed a small break from blogging, and thankfully many of the other bloggers were able to cover my lack of writing. A big thank you to all of my compatriots for covering for me! Also, […]

The Balance of the (Tri)Force

Saturday, February 10th, 2007

Four consoles and seven Sages ago, the Legend of Zelda series was simply what it’s title declared it to be, a legend about Zelda. It was about a very simple story about three magical triangles, a woman who was trying to defend them, a man who wanted to take them, and a hero who […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Eternally a Princess

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

[WARNING: This post has very vague allusions to things that happen in Twilight Princess. However, it doesn’t overtly reveal anything. As such, this topic is NOT marked Spoiler. Please post accordingly.]
“Ah! the stories of yore! How fabled they are!” the minsterel said in the town square. “How enchanting are […]

Video Games Live

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007

I just wanted to bring your guys’ attention to VGL, a must-see event that I just had the pleasure of forking over $70 for two tickets to go see with my girlfriend.
Video Games Live is an unprecedented, ongoing event: a live orchestra that plays a variety of video game music to the accompaniment of impressive […]

Questions Are Better Than Answers

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007

Well, it’s 2007 and another new year! The best part of the New Year (or at least a good part of the New Year) is that, once again, I have a blank slate when it comes to writing articles for you. My yearly quota of bad articles (which do happen every now […]

Let’s (Not) Party Like It’s 1999

Tuesday, December 5th, 2006

First off, my fellow ZeldaBloggians, a brief announcement. Let me remind you all that the Rule about Spoilers is still in full effect. I’ve seen several people violating it, and I’ve had to edit several comments already. None of you have done anything insane like tell anyone that the Eastmost Peninsula is […]
