    How does the Zelda manga compare to the games?

    I’ve only read the LttP, MM, and the first half of the OoT mangas. They’re interesting reads for hardcore fans, but nothing I’d overly recommend. They take a bunch of liberties with the story in them, for instance the LttP manga adds an entirely new thief character that’s never seen in game, and...

    What if BotW2 is just a 'rehash'?

    I actually had an idea similar to this a while back. you know how Zelda tends to have a running theme of exploring two different worlds (light and dark, past and future, surface and sky, etc)? What if we had a game where one world is your normal Zelda overworld, and the underworld is like a...

    Things That Are on Your Mind

    This past Christmas my uncle gave me his framed painting of General Robert E. Lee (the confederate general during the American civil war) on his horse, Traveller. I hung it up in my bedroom but my mom has been somewhat vocal about her not liking it. She’s clearly uncomfortable with it but I...

    Rank the Smash Bros Games

    I used to think that every smash game was better than the last but after thinking about it... 5. Smash 64- great game, bare bones compared to later entries, yadda yadda yadda moving on. I will say that this is the last smash Bros to have an appropriate amount of fire emblem reps. 4. 3DS/Wii U-...

    What if BotW2 is just a 'rehash'?

    While BotW is a great game, it is deeply flawed, and BotW 2 being the exact same might make it my new least favorite Zelda. That’s a huge pet peeve of mine, when a series refuses to improve upon its predecessor and just makes more of the same. In order for me to truly enjoy BotW 2 it needs to...

    Most Iconic Zelda Quote.

    Obviously the most iconic quote is “it’s dangerous to go alone, take this!” But there are other quotes that I think are even better. Windwaker in particular has some amazing quotes towards the end. Ganondorf and King Daphnes Nohanson Hyrule both have amazing monologues, and I’d argue that “this...

    Are your favourite gaming franchises in a good place at the moment?

    Tbh I’m not very optimistic about this. Zelda- BotW was a good game, but it simply didn’t fit the series. I really hope this isn’t the new direction for the series, but that’s doubtful considering how well it did. Pokémon- sword and shield were embarrassments to the legacy of the franchise...

    Nintendo Who is THE most annoying minion/boss/enemy in any Nintendo game ever?

    if you’re gonna say gohdan you might as well lump in bongo bongo, the boss in the desert level of Mario 64, sigma from mega man x, and a few others. singling out gohdan specifically is a little unfair. I know, I’m specifically surprised that Spirit is recommending SS. I too think it’s a good...

    VikzeLink's Weekly Sunday Poll 409!

    Out of all of them, the transformation masks and four sword splitting are the only ones that are really handled well. All of the others are either only useful in scripted situations or full of clunk (Or in wolf links case both). Of the two the masks are cooler one so I’m gonna go with that.

    What town in The Zelda Series would you want to live at?

    Sure, as long as you’re fine with living with the constant threat of global annihilation by celestial being.:D I would love to live in windfall. Sure it’s not as big as clock town, which is a close second, but you can’t beat that view of the occean. skyloft is another close contender for the...

    Nintendo Who is THE most annoying minion/boss/enemy in any Nintendo game ever?

    The wizrobes in Majoras Mask aren’t necessarily annoying to fight, but they show up all the dang time. That’s honestly the worst part of the entire game, which says a lot about how nearly perfect the game is otherwise. Any enemy that chases you around for an extended period of time. Phantos...

    BotW2 linear and gated progression

    I wouldn’t mind it. Like I’ve said on multiple occasions, linearity isn’t a bad thing. In fact it’s required in order to have a story, no matter how simplistic. That’s why BotW was such a narrative disaster. Even from a gameplay perspective linearity is needed in some regard. BotW still has...

    I don’t downright hate him in SS or BotW like others do, but I’m not particularly fond of him in those games either. While WW beedle is definitely my favorite (and I think the helmet version is ridiculous and funny so I chose that), I actually did enjoy him in PH/ST. He acted very similarly to...

    Should some future Zelda Games have a different main playable character?

    I’d be fine if it was a side game, like Luigi’s mansion or wario land. I’d even be fine if it was canon, just don’t call it “the Legend of Zelda.” I want that name to signify that you’re playing as the legendary hero.

    Almost every item in TP was completely worthless. It’s incredibly different to narrow it down to one item. It’s honestly a tie between the spinner and the dominion rod, but at least the spinner was kinda fun to use. So I’m gonna have to say the rod. I’m actually going to defend the bomblings...

    Wait, what was the second update? I remember the one with link, but that’s it. Either way this looks pretty cool. It’s probably not enough to get me to play the game a whole lot more, but I’m happy for those who have been wanting this stuff for a while. It’s a little disappointing that this’ll...

    Definitive Zelda Formula: Old vs. New?

    Here the quote of you saying it. The reason Korl chose link to begin with was because he was looking for the person to fill the role of the hero who never returned. Throughout the entire game he’s being compared to the hero of time. The entire story of the game is literally based around link...

    Definitive Zelda Formula: Old vs. New?

    In terms of additions to the lore the twili didn’t exist until TP. TP never gives a good reason why they are never mentioned until then, as it acts as if the twilight realm was a known thing as early as OoT Both of these instances are described in game as it being “the sacred animal.”

    Definitive Zelda Formula: Old vs. New?

    Ok. How about alien Vs predator: the last of his clan? That was a game released the same year as LA. So each of our examples contribute to the style equally? Even if you wanted to exclude the first 4 games, there is plenty of goofy parts in OoT and MM. This isn’t a new thing. I will admit...

    Definitive Zelda Formula: Old vs. New?

    The concept art. That was the intended look of the game. Especially considering most promotional art was changed to have a less cartoony style in North America, I’d say that it was supposed to look cartoony. I’ll give you the dream part, but the way the game presents itself outside of artstyle...

    Definitive Zelda Formula: Old vs. New?

    Every single one of the images you posted are from pre-ocarina of time games. By your logic they shouldn’t count because they vary in style.

    Definitive Zelda Formula: Old vs. New?

    Ok you just lost me there with the links Awakening artwork. LA is arguably the most toon-like game in the series, even more so than Windwaker I’d say. The Zelda series has always been cartoon like. Ever since the very first entry. I mean just take a look at the concept art: LttP and OoT you...

    Definitive Zelda Formula: Old vs. New?

    By definition you can’t have a series without some kind of “formula.” How much of a formula needed is up for debate. Personally I think the formula was one of the best features of the series. It’s one that’s fairly unique compared to other games, even of the same genre. To see BotW resort to a...

    Hypothetical WW & TP Switch question

    I wouldnt mind a mix of both WWHD and WWSD. HD has the QOL and brighter colors, but I honestly prefer the triforce quest in the original. Plus since miiverse is dead now wouldn’t be the worst time to bring back the tingle tuner and have your phone connect to it.

    Do dungeons open without keys?

    What happens is that there is only one grid that you play on, and when you enter a dungeon the grid just changes itself so that it looks different. Basically when you enter/exit the dungeon you don’t actually go anywhere it just looks like you do. So when you exit the dungeon you are always...

    Where do you stand on Skyward Sword HD?

    I’d rather have it than a port of WWHD or TPHD. SS was incredibly flawed, but it was far from the worst game in the series. (Not that it’s hard to be better than Toilet Princess). Personally I dont think the controls are the problem. The technology has come a long way since the Wii motion...

    Do we need a cheery, upbeat and light-hearted Zelda game next?

    A cheery artstyle and dark tone aren’t mutually exclusive things. Neither are a dark artstyle and a goofy tone. Twilight Princess easily had the darkest artstyle (dark as in I can’t see what I’m doing) yet is full of goofy moments and is quite hard to take seriously at times. Conversely...
