Wind Waker Through the Lens of Truth

October 30, 2017
By Sean Michael-Patrick Thompson
From the moment I saw the first trailer for Wind Waker to its glorious HD remaster for Wii U, it has been a wild ride with this instant classic. I have seldom had so many unique experiences with a game on multiple play throughs, but with so many open-world elements, I can’t help but find...

By Red
For as long as there have been Legend of Zelda games, there has been an intense debate about each game’s placement in the Zelda timeline. The release of the official Zelda timeline in Hyrule Historia quieted the debate somewhat, but didn’t silence it entirely. Today, however, I want to take a look at a different...

October 16, 2017
By Lyle Izzillo
We’ve all played Ocarina of Time. We’ve all had the chance to play it multiple times over both as an imaginative child and now as an analytical adult (well, most of us). Easily one of the most popular and loved in the series. But there’s one part of the game that...

Why Breath of the Wild Is Not a True Zelda Game

September 25, 2017
By Nate Merritt
Sure, ZELDA is in the title and the game does involve a Link, a Zelda, and a form of Ganon, but I would argue that this is where the majority of Zelda’s MUCH LOVED culture ends for this game. I mean is a game simply the name of it's title? It's my belief...

Red’s Ramblings – The Sympathetic Side of Ganondorf

September 15, 2017
By Red
Chris Colfer once said, “A villain is just a victim whose story hasn’t been told.” I’ve always loved this quote, and when it comes to villains, my favorites are always the ones that have some depth. To me, it’s not enough for a villain to simply be evil, or to want...

Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons Through the Lens of Truth

August 28, 2017
By Sean Michael-Patrick Thompson
It seemed like a very short time after my initial discovery of the Zelda series that the Oracle games released. Being somewhat new to the series, this was the first time I had actually been aware of a new game before its release, and can scarce describe the level of excitement I had. I have now...
