Character Spotlight; The Legend of Zora

Ah, the mighty Zora tribe.  The strong amphibious people of the water, these creatures have become one of 761px-Zora_Artwork_(Ocarina_of_Time)the most popular additions to the Legend of Zelda franchise.  Most fans are likely to know that the Zoras in the Adult timeline of the Hyrule legend (depicted in the Hyrule Historia), and more specifically Wind Waker, evolved into bird people known as the Rito.  Starting when I was little, it was my pet peeve that fish people would become bird people just when they seemed like they could become the reigning species.  However, an interesting thought came to me, and this blog post is about that thought, and why I no longer have said pet peeve.

Woah, A Pokemon And Zelda Title in one?! Pokemon Courage!

(Note: This post was originally designed as an April Fools prank, but I decided to just pitch it as an idea and leave it as written.  If you actually enjoy this idea, let me know!  Maybe we can get this to go viral and have Nintendo actually pay attention to us.)  Greetings humans, animals, and assorted extra-terrestrial life!  This may not be what you’d normally expect out of a Zelda game, but it’s something I’ve desired for ages.  I feel like the idea is solid, the story could be amazing, and it’s certainly worth a shot.  Help spread the buzz on twitter with #PokemonCourage.

A Tour of The World: Snowpeak Ruins

A few weeks ago I made a post about snow-based dungeons, and in it I said I would do a future post about one of my more-liked snow-based dungeons, Snowpeak Ruins from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and that kind of inspired me to look at more dungeons beyond just Snowpeak Ruins and, well, suppose about them.  Hence, A Tour of The World.  I look forward to starting off this spin-off of sorts with the coverage of this dungeon, so here we go!

Baby It’s Cold Outside

I’m not sure about the rest of the world right now, but where I live it’s cold and snowy.  I mean, the snow is currently as high as my dog’s belly.  Sadly for me, I am not much of a fan of the cold, but it did inspire me, because not only do I hate the cold, I also hate cold, snowy video game levels.  And while skidding on the road for a few seconds in you car is bad, skidding into a never ending abyss can be significantly worse.  So I thought I’d feature a few snow levels and give my thoughts on them.

Hyrule Warriors

Every Zelda fan probably knows by now that the latest game, Hyrule Warriors, is coming out in a few months.  Some might not know, but this game is a combination of two different titles,  The Legend of Zelda, and a game saga called Dynasty Warriors.  The lay-out reminds me very much of games that have a classic “capture-the-flag” style of design.  The game has ever evolving missions, while still retaining some classic Zelda charm.
