Last week's top stories, now in handy haiku form photo
Last week's top stories, now in handy haiku form
by Darren Nakamura

This past weekend I was up late and feeling loopy, and some haikus about a Flash game nobody cares about fell out of that state. Struck with inspiration, I thought, "Why can't all news be digested 17 syllables at a time?" Thus, the video above was conceived.

Here are the stories mentioned, in case you missed them the first time and would like more information than a three-line stanza affords.

There! Are you feeling a little more zen now?

Still haven't picked up Majora's Mask 3D yet? Here's another comparison video

Based on all of the happy pictures I saw of people getting their shiny new Majora 3DS and Majora's Mask collectors editions, I'm thinking a lot of people have been playing The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D this past week...

Sheik and Toon Link amiibo wish you a happy Valentine's Day photo
Sheik and Toon Link amiibo wish you a happy Valentine's Day
by Jonathan Holmes

Valentine's Day makes most people I know feel uncomfortable. The modern concept of the holiday has been designed around taking heartfelt expressions of attention/appreciation/affection and packaging them into rote, uniform little bundles of "love." Already sounds kind of like amiibo, doesn't it? In fact, one might say that amiibo are the chalky, heart shaped, "B Mine" and "I Wuv U" candies of the Nintendo world. If collecting videogames is like collecting love letters, then every amiibo is like an individual sext from a stranger who may actually be a tweetbot.

If none of that made any sense to you, don't worry. All you need to know is in this music video. Here you will find all of the fake plastic love and bizarre sexual bravado that you normally get from Valentine's Day, but in amiibo form. That I can tell you for certain. What I can't tell you for certain is what Toon Link is doing to Link's butt at the end of the song. Feel free to enlighten me in the comments. 

Thanks to Josh Grilli for helping me track down that darn Sheik amiibo.

Watch Zelda producer go fishing in Majora's Mask 3D

Majora's Mask 3D is out today. Did you buy it? You should probably buy it. You know, if you want. It's the same (well, maybe a tad different) great game from back in the day, but with a few notable additions, like fishing ho...

Happy Majora's Mask day!

Over the past week, I've spent I don't know how many hours trying to get through the new DLC in Hyrule Warriors. Even if I did know, I wouldn't say. A lot. Way too many.

To access certain levels, you'll need to use a Deku, Goron, or Zora mask on the Termina Adventure map. Sounds neat, except it's set up such that you have to beat one level to get a mask that can let you reach another mask to obtain the mask you really wanted all along (x10). Then and only then can you make real progress toward stopping that danged moon from crash landing.

The levels themselves are, at times, absurd in their difficulty. New mission types place you in a heated race against A.I. warriors to take keeps, or collect rupees, or rack up KOs. It's you and you alone against their posse which just so happens to include boss monsters because no one said this was going to be a fair fight. I hope most of your characters are sufficiently leveled.

Anyway, enough talk. I managed to nab the last of the Majora's Mask DLC outfits last night and some are downright hilarious. Others, horrific. What's best in life? Darunia wearing a Goron mask.

The hunt is on today for the Majora's Mask New 3DS XL, here's what I found photo
The hunt is on today for the Majora's Mask New 3DS XL, here's what I found
by Chris Carter

[Update: Target seems to have some extra stock online from dropped pre-orders. Check now (try the mobile link too) and throughout the day to see if anything pops up. GameStop is also taking orders on a $250 bundle with the game and Majora's Mask-themed New 3DS.]

Another big videogame product launch, another retailer hunt from yours truly.

This morning the New 3DS XL debuted across the country in the US, and thousands of fans are looking to get their hands on the coveted Majora's Mask 3DS. As many of you know it sold out in minutes in-store at GameStop, and online at Best Buy, among other stores. I got word that select stores would be getting shipments in this morning, so I headed out to three Targets, one Best Buy, and called many more locations.

The verdict? Unless you're in a rural area, your chances of getting one are very slim, even if you go at opening. All of the stores I contacted obtained three to four, and sold out immediately after the doors opened. According to one shop, customers waited outside the night before to snag one of the three of its stock.

Very Quick Tips: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D photo
Very Quick Tips: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D
by Chris Carter

Majora's Mask may have problems, but the three-day cycle concept is not one of them. While some people didn't like the fact that they had to "start all over" after the cycle repeated, that's not really the case.

You get to keep all your key items, you can store your Rupees in a bank and get them back right away, and there's an easy method to ensuring that you have all the time you need for dungeons.

Let's take a look.

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D photo
Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D
by Chris Carter

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is unlike any other Zelda game in the series. For instance, there's no sign of the franchise's classic villain Ganon, and no Zelda outside of a quick flashback reference.

It's also a decidedly darker affair, with strong themes of depression, anxiety, and general angst due to the impending end of the world. Heck, there's even straight-up voyeurism quest and the assumption of dead people's identities.

Majora has a lot of really cool ideas, and most of them are augmented by the slight upgrades found in Majora's Mask 3D.

Casting The Legend of Zelda: A Netflix television series  photo
Casting The Legend of Zelda: A Netflix television series
by Kyle MacGregor

Netflix is reportedly making a live-action television series based on The Legend of Zelda.

The news immediately sent the country, nay the world into mass hysteria. Some folks expressed unfettered glee. Others were upset, their minds drifting back to 1993 with repressed memories of the Super Mario Bros. movie seeping up through the floorboards of their tortured psyches. 

Anyway, let's suppose it's true. Such a production will need a cast. Let's put together another one.

Dream cast: I want these actors for Netflix's live-action Legend of Zelda photo
Dream cast: I want these actors for Netflix's live-action Legend of Zelda
by Steven Hansen

I'm sure you've heard the bizarre news. Netflix is working on a live-action The Legend of Zelda series that is described as, "Game of Thrones for a family audience," which is kind of like if Breaking Bad was about Peanuts characters in a lemonade stand competition.

I think Netflix is missing a huge opportunity to take J. K. Rowlings' Game of Thrones style--nudity and blood and tits--and present an aging Nintendo fanbase with a gritty re-imagining of the universe, but I'll respect Netflix's direction and cast a Legend of Zelda series where throne ascendancy disputes get solved like the time on Fresh Prince where it turns out Uncle Phil is really good at billiards.

Not everything on television can be mature content for grown ups about dragons and skeletons, after all. 

Here's my dream cast!

Zelda on Netflix looks to be Game of Thrones for the whole family photo
Zelda on Netflix looks to be Game of Thrones for the whole family
by Robert Summa

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that a live-action The Legend of Zelda series is currently being developed by Netflix. According to mysterious sources quoted by the Journal, the series is still in its early stages of development and is apparently working closely with Nintendo.

The show is still seeking a writer, so it may be quite a bit of time before we hear a whole lot more about this. The most we know right now is that the series will be based on the traditional Zelda story and is looking to be like Game of Thrones, but for a family audience.

The Majora's Mask music in Hyrule Warriors is so damn catchy

I know it's early, but anyone else dig into the Majora's Mask DLC for Hyrule Warriors yet? I've played about an hour of it today and I'm loving the Termina map, especially its music, embedded above. So upbeat despite that ac...

Hyrule Warriors had the most successful launch of any Musou game in the U.S.

Nintendo's gambit with one of its most profitable properties seems to have paid off. Koei Tecmo's Hyrule Warriors is the fastest selling of any entry of the Musou series released in the United States. Great DLC and iconi...

Majora's Mask gets a cute lil '90s-feeling, live-action commercial

In a fitting tribute to the days of polygonal graphics that didn't play well on air, Majora's Mask 3DS has a nice little commercial you wouldn't be surprised to see stationed between episodes of Rocko's Modern Life...
