February NPD proves we still love Zelda

All bow before the 3DS

// Robert Summa
It looks like we can all temper those Nintendo is doomed stories that always pop up in their forever click-bait form. According to the latest NPD numbers for February, Nintendo proved that they still have the ability to print...

What the heck is going on with this Hyrule Warriors concept art?

Rated 'E' for 'Evil half naked woman bathing in blood'

The Hyrule Warriors strategy guide came out a while ago, so this art isn't exactly news, though it was news to me as I stumbled upon it earlier today. It doesn't look like many others have taken note of this bizarre sketch fr...

Did you know there's a Chain Chomp in Hyrule Warriors?

In before Bow-Wow
Dec 10
// Jordan Devore
I'm on track to put more time into Hyrule Warriors than any other videogame in 2014. This is coming from someone who has spent, at most, half an hour with Omega Force's past titles. I may not be a Dynasty Warriors fan -- and,...

Hyrule Warriors' amiibo support is boring

An all-new weapon and daily items
Nov 17
// Jordan Devore
Nintendo has explained which amiibo toys do what in Hyrule Warriors and, frankly, the game's support for the near-field communication figurines is rather dull. With Link (or Toon Link), players can get the Spinner weapon from...

In addition to operating as what looks to be one of the most traditional weapons yet in Hyrule Warriors, Lana's Deku Stick power has a bunch of tricks up its sleeve. It can summon giant roots from the ground, shoot projectil...

This trailer gave me a case of the vapors. Those three Zelda games may look similar to those who only have a passing familiarity with the series, but for those who've played them all in-depth, they represent three very ...
Sheik photo

Yep, Sheik is definitely getting some Hyrule Warriors playtime from me

First a badass baton, now a harp
Jul 30
// Chris Carter
Sheik's character trailer is out for Hyrule Warriors, and I'm satisfied. With equal amounts harp carnage, ninja moves, and speed, Sheik is a forced to be reckoned with. Out of all of the fighters I've seen so far, Sheik is one of the fastest, if not the fastest in the game. I love that "ninja run," where characters have their arms backward, while destruction is happening all around them.

Darunia will hammer all-comers

Most of the official trailers for Hyrule Warriors are short compilations showing off big and boisterous attacks. What they haven't shown is much of the game's overall flow and pacing. That's caused some to worry that Nintend...

We've seen nearly every other character in action so far in Hyrule Warriors except for the newly announced Sheik, Darunia, and Ruto, and now it's the latter princess' turn to show her stuff. Like Fi, her moves have a bi...

Smooth McGroove makes me feel horrible about my humming abilities yet again

I used to be proud to be able to hum the whole Final Fantasy VII soundtrack
Jul 22
// Brittany Vincent
Smooth McGroove does it again with this wonderful arrangement of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link's Temple/Palace Theme. This man is a bundle of talent and I can't wait to see his next new take on an old classic. As a rule, YouTube personalities don't normally impress me in this manner, but I've enjoyed Smooth's takes on classic gaming tunes. Perhaps it'll brighten your day a bit as well.

Fi revealed to be playable in Hyrule Warriors

As I've discussed many times before, I like the idea of Fi in theory, in terms of her character design (that skating was awesome), and her place in the story. But in practice, she ended up being a 40 hour long tutorial that w...

Ride wolves & sticky hand slap fools with Midna in Hyrule Warriors

And I guess she knicked Link's hookshot
Jul 07
// Steven Hansen
Midna is pretty brutal in Hyrule Warriors. PETA won't be happy about her riding wolves. Less happy about tossing one as a projectile. Then there's the 25 cent machine sticky hand coming out her head. It'll be covered in dirt and won't stick to a thing in a day.  Check out trailers for Link, Zelda, Impa, Lana, and Agitha.
