Well hellooo people! As you may have noticed, I’ve been M.I.A. for a bit this month and that’s mostly due to the 9 days of vacation time I spent wearing pajamas and watching Gremlins 2 on repeat. But with Christmas now rearing its jolly noggin’ and some major games from Nintendo lining up to hit store shelves in the coming weeks, there’s too much happening to ignore! Too much! Starting today with this new commercial for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS. A sequel to the classic SNES installment A Link to the Past, here’s a title nobody realized they’d been waiting all their lives for. Taking on a retro art style, Link’s new overhead adventure introduces a pretty neat little gameplay mechanic that allows him to-ah hell, just watch it will ya!

Wii U REVIEW: The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD (Sehr Mehnee Feeerring)

I couldn’t help myself. Physical copies of the The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD hit store shelves today but the digital version has been available through the Wii U’s eShop for a couple weeks now. As much as I can appreciate owning an actual disc, there’s no way I ever plan on reselling this and downloading it spared me the “experience” of “engaging” with my “community.” Enjoy your little Ganondorf toy you bastards. So at the stroke of midnight on September 20th, my Wii U welcomed into its tiny little baby hard drive this once highly divisive, now univerally acclaimed installment in the franchise. After 2 weeks of playing it pretty much nonstop, how well does the gameplay hold up? What’s been improved? Does it really look that much better? Is Tingle a convicted pedophile? Well, easy does it because I’m here to address most of that as well as force you to wade through a LOT of pics that I snapped through Miiverse!

Well, I Had a Different Pattern in Mind for Today’s Final New Leaf QR Post.

But the strong reaction to the NES Link design on my tumblr page forced my hand so here you go guys. This image is of course the well known 16-bit sprite from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The stone cold classic SNES game that is on most days my favorite entry in the entire franchise and also a precursor to the upcoming 3DS game A Link Between Worlds. I chose a simple white background because it seemed kinda classy so there you have it.

Pink hair and all.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the New Year

Zelda's intervention took a turn for the tragic when it became obvious she was tripping on acid the entire time.

So my second silliest New Year’s Resolution for 2012 is to finally play all the way through The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I’m already nearing the end of the game, partially because I got a bit of head start, but mostly because the game is fantastic. Link to the Past celebrates it’s 20th anniversary in the U.S. this year. So why did it take me so long to finally play this legendary game, and how does the game hold up to new eyes two decades after the fact? Read on!

OCRemix.org, famous Internet home of a bunch of talented folks and the re-imaginings of video game music that they create -including a plethora of Zelda tunes- have just released another plethora of Zelda tunes all at once, which I guess makes it an album! 25YEARLEGEND: a Legend of Zelda indie game composer tribute is, as the title indicates, a project started to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda series and consisting of tracks composed by the musicians behind “notable project[s] in the indie game community.” There are 18 tracks in total, including one each drawing from Skyward Sword and The Adventure of Link.
