    General Modern Zelda Wii U - What Should the Next Installment Offer?

    As the curtain closes on Skyward Sword, we look to the future of the Legend of Zelda series. In the more immediate future, we've got an original Zelda title in development for the 3DS alongside either a Majora's Mask or an A Link to the Past remake. However, as we look forward to what is on the...

    Spoiler So What's the Deal with Skykeep, Anyway?

    The Triforce was housed there to safeguard it from Demise when that spit of land was raised into the sky, to begin with. Sky Keep was obviously created by the Goddess to test the hero that would eventually seek the Triforce. Demise was sealed by the Goddess' sacrifice of her powers, so she...

    Spoiler Time Paradoxes

    When you think of the timeline split after Ocarina of Time, I can understand how you'd think the time theory in Skyward Sword is off. However, think of the END of Skyward Sword as the beginning of the Zelda timeline. I say this because, unlike Ocarina of Time where Link is sent back to the...

    Skyward Sword: The Worst 3D Zelda Title

    Skyward Sword is in an entirely different league. My brother is playing Twilight Princess as I have slowly completed Skyward Sword, and I can say, there are quite a number of elements in Twilight Princess that I sorely miss in Skyward Sword. As you mention, this does include a vast overworld...

    Spoiler Ghirahim and the Final Boss Cutscene, What is Up with That?

    Notice that Ghirahim refers to Demise as "Master", just as Fi addresses Link. The only disappointing thing was Ghirahim's complete disregard for Fi's existence. I would have loved to see these spirits go at it in some fashion.

    What Are Your Thoughts on Heart Pieces Being in Dungeons?

    I enjoy the added exploration element to encourage players to go off the beaten path in dungeons. Heart pieces are a great reward, but Skyward Sword will be introducing a new reward scheme through treasure chests, if I remember correctly from interviews with Nintendo. Along with heartpieces, I'd...

    Difficulty System..

    This is my point. Zelda is the phenom of its genre due largely to its accessibility and options. The game can be played in any fashion the player wishes. The 3-heart challenge surfaced due to these options. One is not forced to increase their health, but may choose to do so. In forcing ones...

    Spoiler What if Did See Ganon?

    Many of us wanted a new villian. I think the Interlopers were high on the community's list of most wanted villians, and it's looking like they may have delivered with Ghirahim. Even if he isn't one of the Interlopers who created the Fused Shadow, he still seems like a very interesting character...

    Difficulty System..

    To be honest, it's difficult as it is, creating a vast number of puzzles to challenge players, not only through dungeons, but in SS, through the entirety of the overworld. To go in and rehash those puzzles to create even harder ones would be quite the testament if Nintendo were to pull it off...

    Difficulty System..

    Only one difficulty is necessary, but the incorporation of two distinct difficulties would be a welcome inclusion. These two settings would be aptly named "Normal" and "Hard." This isn't Smash Bros. Seriously, you're playing with way too many factors here with your diffuculty suggestions...

    Spoiler Now What Does Everyone Expect in the Overworld

    The world is expected to be more dense, decreasing the overall size in order to fill it with life. I expect a more 2D traditional Zelda approach where you must traverse the vast world and fight your way to the Temples and Dungeons as opposed to simply riding your horse/bird to the next location...

    Spoiler My Biggest Hope for Skyward Sword (Post-completion)

    Wind Waker got it right. The Nintendo Gallery was Linked between continuing saved games, post-completion, so one could take their Poctograph Box through the game before they would normally obtain it, giving the player a reason to replay the game and complete the gallery. Also, the ability to run...

    A Link to the Past A Link to the Past Remake for the 3ds?

    I see this game being released in the same fashion as Excitebike, through a 3D Classics title. 3D Classics are 3D rendered rereleases of Nintendo and Super Nintendo games. Excitebike 3D had added touch screen functionality, so one would assume they will likely add some touch screen support to...

    Majora's Mask Majoras Mask Remake on the 3DS?

    Majora's Mask on the Nintendo 3DS? Pros: 1. It has an extensive fanbase, and many believe the game to have surpassed Ocarina of Time. It is, indeed, a much more involved game that certainly includes every NPC within the plot through many sidequests that occompany the main quest, offering...

    Spoiler One of Seven

    Indeed, allude does seem to be the correct term to describe The Legend of Zelda's take on religious influences. As I mentioned, they take inspiration from conventional religion, but are sure not to cross the line from fiction to non-fiction. If a take on the seven deadly sins is introduced, it...
