New Skyward Sword vids pimping zombies and fish dragons

In the latest Talking to Women about Videogames (post coming on Tuesday), I had the audacity to say that Mass Effect was the last great single player-only series in gaming. That was silly. It was arguably even sillier when a few Youtube co...

Skyward Sword opening cinematic, beautiful but baffling

[Update: Added English translation] The wait for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is almost over. I don't know about you folks, but I'm more excited about this than I have been about anything with "Zelda" in its name for over a decade. I...

Spoiler: Skyward Sword Easter Egg in Ocarina of Time 3D

Rumor has it that the upcoming Wii title The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword takes place before Ocarina of Time in the long-debated, maybe non-existent Zelda time line. I'm sure that particular fans will take this little Easter Egg as eviden...

E3: Skyward Sword dungeon demo totally nails it

I've had some mixed impressions of the Skyward Sword demo here at E3. I really loved the demo's boss battle, but was left sort of lukewarm after playing the game's bird chasing mini-game. Neither of those are that important though. You won...
