    What's a Culture You'd Like to Know More About?

    Throughout the world, we have hundreds of distinct cultures, all with different languages, traditions, and religions. It's difficult to know everything about all of them, so I was wondering what cultures you'd like to know more about. Personally, this is a topic that I can go on for days about...

    A Link Between Worlds Yuga's Name

    So I was reading around a bit, and I found an interesting little tidbit about the word, "Yuga." Apparently, in Hindu philosophy, it's the name of an epoch or era within a four-age cycle. It made me think about A Link Between Worlds' antagonist, Yuga. I wasn't really sure what to make of the...

    The Ice Bucket Challenge: A Fad For the Vain

    The ice bucket challenge is a recent fad aimed at raising awareness for ALS, a disease that afflicts nerve cells and can cause paralysis. This particular disease is increasingly common in professional football players, as their many concussions throughout their football career cause long term...

    Reinvigorating the Entertainment Forum

    The Entertainment forum is our area for discussing a wide variety of topics - from music, to movies, to books, etc. Unfortunately, the forum itself is tethered to a handful of topics that dominate that area's discussion. These include, "Which Song Are You Currently Listening To?" "Rate the Last...

    Hyrule Warriors Ganondorf: The Mane

    As many of you know, Ganondorf was recently confirmed to be a playable character. A brief, yet interesting trailer with gameplay was released once Aonuma signed off, giving us our first look at Ganondorf's appearance and playstyle. Below is the clip...

    Sublime

    Sublime is a reggae/ska punk band from the late 80's to late 90's. I've seen a lot of praise over the years for them, my first exposure to them being on a rock station I listened to when I was younger. One of my cousins is also a huge fan of their work, and we've listened to one of their albums...

    Justifiable Homicide?

    This is a philosophical topic that has captivated me for quite some time. I've been wondering this for awhile now: is there ever a situation in which I should be allowed to murder another human being? You may be thinking to yourself, "Well of course you can't just kill someone randomly, but if...

    Spooky Themes in Zelda U

    If there is one thing I love in video games, it's spooky themes. Mario Kart 8's track, Twisted Mansion, is my favorite track in the game simply for the theme in it. Bloodborne has single handedly made me want a PlayStation 4 for the spooky themes that we've seen so far. The list goes on, with...

    Your Feelings on Radical Liberalism

    Plenty of radical conservatives get hate, but we very seldom seem to see hating on the opposite end of the spectrum. If Ayn Rand and her pseudo-philosophy has taught us anything, it's that the exact opposite of a bad thing doesn't make a good thing. With an overwhelming amount of the vocal areas...

    Destiny

    The beta for PlayStation has been out for a week, and Xbox users got their beta codes this afternoon, yet there's been no thread for it yet. I find it strange, but I digress. So I got my code today, and I love Destiny. Unfortunately I already hit the level cap of 8 in the middle of a dungeon...

    Theory Regarding Ash's Age

    So I stumbled upon this while browsing on the sub reddit dedicated to Pokemon. It's an interesting theory, and for once, it isn't that Ash is immortal and/or stealing his companion's youth. I think it's pretty plausible, personally. What do you guys think?

    Hyrule Warriors The Groosinator

    Hey guys, the new screens that were released also showed the Groosinator (shown below). I'm thinking this means that Groose may be announced as being playable in the near future. JuicieJ made a good call earlier with Fi, regarding the tweet using the 98%, and I think that this is an equally...

    Spoiler Themes Within Link's Awakening

    Link’s Awakening is one of the more underrated games within the Zelda games, as it didn’t revolutionize the gaming world like A Link to the Past or Ocarina of Time did. It was almost like the middle child that was forgotten, and its release on the GameBoy probably didn’t help that. And yet...

    Zelda Art Revelations

    Hey guys! I've been working on rewriting an old crossover of mine between Assassin's Creed: Revelations and the Legend of Zelda series for about a week now, and I finally finished it. It's only 12 chapters, each chapter being about 800 words, so it's not a whole lot of reading. This is a really...

    Solipsism

    So the Mature Discussion has been mostly religion, and politics for a long time now. I think it'd be neat if we brought some philosophy into the forum, and I don't see much better than the current idea that I am reading; solipsism. So what is solipsism, exactly? Well, So naturally I will...

    Books That Changed Your View of the World

    Everyone experiences books differently, and view them differently from others. As such, we all have those books that we read that made us see the world differently. We may have read them when we were young, when we were in school, or even into adulthood. Sometimes they're something as simple as...

    General Zelda The Puppet Archetype

    Twilight Princess had Zant, an antagonist that seemed to be the final enemy until Ganondorf came into the picture about halfway through the game. Skyward Sword had Ghirahim, who we knew was trying to revive his master, Demise. A Link Between Worlds had Hilda, who showed her true intentions to...

    HD Remakes

    HD Remakes have been released en masse as of late, and for the past several years. It allows players who never had the chance to play the game during its original release to play it now. For instance, I probably wouldn't have played Halo: Combat Evolved if not for the anniversary edition. It...

    Which Pokemon Would You Like to See Have a Mega Evolution?

    Mega evolution has shaken up competitive Pokemon as we know it, and added more elements to the single player aspect of the series. With the new box art for the Hoenn remakes, it is speculated that these new designs for Kyogre and Groudon are actually their mega evolutions. This means it is...

    General Zelda Zelda Crossovers

    Public Schools and History

    In the "Civil Rights Era Becoming Obsolete" thread, I couldn't help but notice a statement that Batman made. I was going to respond in that thread, but I decided that it would derail the thread too much, so I thought it'd be best to just make its own thread. --- I think the American public...

    4 Reasons to Try Indie Gaming

    So recently, a comment in the General Gaming section caught me off guard in a discussion; the poster said something to the effect of, "For an indie game, they put a lot of effort into this." In addition to a comment on Reddit's /r/games that mentioned indie games being filled with gimmicks, I am...

    General Art Regarding the State of the Writing Forum

    Hey there guys! With my recent increase in activity on the forums, I couldn’t help but notice that the Writing forum isn’t receiving as much attention as it used to.

    Zelda Art Adventure to Skyloft

    Hey there guys! It's been a bit of time since I last posted something in the writing section, and I felt it was fitting to come back with a rewrite for one of my oldest fan fictions; Adventure to Skyloft. I'll be changing a lot as I go, and it will take a long time to complete, but I assure...

    Hey guys. So I've been writing an Assassin's Creed story for the past week or so, and I decided to share it on Zelda Dungeon.

    Spoiler Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad and Ezio Auditore Da Firenze: An Unlikely Brotherhood

    Throughout the Assassin’s Creed series, you see the First Civilization have a hand in just about every Assassin-based event. From Al Mualim to Desmond Miles, you see their interventions affecting the game. Rarely ever do you see bonds form from their meddling, though. However, there is a single...

    Do You Like Nintendo's Recent Actions?

    This is a self-explanatory thread; do you like the recent actions that Nintendo has done? There are a number of things that I don't particularly like about what Nintendo has been doing lately, and I feel myself almost hoping that Nintendo will fail with the Wii U. I in some ways feel that...

    Spoiler Assassin's Creed III General Thread

    Due to the lack of a thread similar to this, and the knowledge - from experience - that specific concepts will be ignored, a general thread seemed necessary. So what are your thoughts on the game thus far? How far are you? Any things struck you as interesting? I personally had a bit of...

    You As a Tyrant
