Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses timed for E3

The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert is the best thing that could happen to the elf ears of any Zelda fan. The performance I saw last year blew me away so many times in one sitting that I couldn't tell if I ...

Some classic game songs with a Middle-Eastern twist

I've listened to plenty of videogame musical covers in the seven years I've worked at Destructoid. Yet, this is the first time I've heard of a musical cover montage with a Middle-Eastern twist to them. There's even some games covered here I'd never expect, like Alley Cat. [Via The Awesomer]

Review: Nintendo Land photo
Review: Nintendo Land
by Jim Sterling

The Wii U GamePad is a lot more versatile than it looks. Some potential consumers have not been quite as inspired by the system as they were by the immediate uniqueness of the Wii and its remote controller. After all, tablets and smartphones have gotten us used to gyroscopes and touchscreens -- what could the Wii U give us that's so interesting?

Nintendo Land is the answer to this question. While none of the games included in this glorified tour of the Wii U's capabilities are compelling enough on their own merits, they contribute to an overall package that does an exemplary job of showing why the Wii U has so much promise as a system. This is a game with one job -- to sell you on the merits of a GamePad. 

It accomplishes this job.

What is the most consistently great series of all time?

After yesterday's official announcement of Metal Gear Solid 5 (woot!), I started thinking about how there really aren't any bad games in the entire, long-running Metal Gear series. All of the Solid games are near perfect, the...

Storm's Adventure with Skyward Sword

Oh my God. How could I neglect my Destructoid homies?! Especially after spending so much time on those f-ing annotations. I put the annoying links in the video so I didn't have to put the annoying links in the post. See? I D...

NintenDOOMED: 3DS clears four million sales in the US

Few companies can have such amazing comebacks as Nintendo, much less build an entire business out of them. After a slow start, bad press, and angry shareholders, the 3DS' health bar is most certainly in the green. No red herb...

The official Legend of Zelda timeline revealed photo
The official Legend of Zelda timeline revealed
by Jim Sterling

A few days ago, we told you that an official Zelda art book containing the definitive timeline for the series would be released. Well, with the book out in Japan, that timeline has been officially revealed. All the historic events and videogames have been reconciled, with various splits into alternative universes. It's pretty crazy. 

The existence of an official "timeline" has been a source of frantic debate among gamers. Some have claimed no such thing exists, and even among those that do, there has always been arguments over the sequence of events. No matter what happens, nobody can ever seem to agree. 

One would think that this timeline will put an end to one of the oddest gamer controversies around, but something tells me that many still won't be satisfied. 

In any case, you can view the chart (as seen on Zelda Universe) below. Don't read if you never want to know, obviously!
