  • Blog Post: Keeping Promises: Seven Things That Need To Happen In 2015

    It's tough to make a promise when it comes to video game development. So many things can happen when it comes to a title or feature being completed, to say nothing of nailing a release date. That being said, there have been some...assurances, shall we say...that companies have made about their games... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion – 2015 Is Anyone's Year

    Going into 2014, the PlayStation 4 had a clear advantage. While Sony’s latest console flew off shelves during its launch window in late 2013, Microsoft’s Xbox One couldn't attain the same sales under the weight of a higher price tag and unclear pre-release brand messaging. At the same... More
  • Blog Post: Game Informer’s Most Anticipated Games of 2015

    If we could stare into the future and find out which games are going to turn out great, our jobs would be a lot easier. So many changes happen to a game in the final months before release that it’s quite common for a game-of-the-year candidate to come out of left field to surprise everyone. But... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask

    With Nintendo's announcement of the 3DS remake of Link's creepiest adventure , we decided to look back at the original. Released shortly after the groundbreaking Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask reuses characters and assets from the first 3D Zelda title to create the surreal, dreamlike world... More

Ever since traversing Hyrule in 3D for the first time in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, fans have been clamoring for more action-oriented Link. He made an appearance... More
  • Blog Post: If George R. R. Martin Created The Next Zelda Game

    The Legend of Zelda remains one of Nintendo's most popular series, but like many of the company's first-party games, it's often criticized for sticking too closely to its decades-old formula. At the same time, no element of the series has caused more backlash than The Wind Waker's introduction... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion: It's Time For Zelda To Change

    Several years ago, in the minutes before I was shown Epic Mickey for the first time, a representative from Disney Interactive told me Mickey Mouse wasn’t a relevant character in the world of entertainment anymore, and his image was that of an old, out-of-vogue cartoon character that most kids didn’t... More
  • Blog Post: Places – Inside Kakariko Village’s Well

    Widely considered one of the greatest games of all time, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is also the first title in the series to use 3D graphics. Until Ocarina, my only experience with the series had been playing Link’s Awakening. I remember being stunned by Ocarina’s visuals, music... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

    The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds strikes a fascinating balance between the classic Zelda formula while simultaneously offering worthwhile innovations. Join Dan Ryckert, Andrew Reiner, and myself, as we discuss what's new, what has stayed the same, and why this Zelda is one of our favorites... More
  • Blog Post: Top 10 Creepiest Masks In Video Games

    Masks serve many functions in video games. Sometimes they’re just used to change a character’s appearance, and sometimes they bestow bonuses or trigger transformations. It’s undeniable, however, that some of the best or most memorable masks are also pretty creepy. Whether it’s... More
  • Blog Post: Miyamoto Talks Zelda, Pikmin, and Wii U Development

    Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto is the most famous and acclaimed game developer in history. By now, you know his resume, which includes creating such storied franchises and Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda. At E3, we had a chance to talk to Mr. Miyamoto about Wii U development, the Mario and... More
  • Blog Post: Man’s Best Friend: Gaming's Top Canines

    People love dogs for many reasons: they’re cuddly, loyal, and protective. Video game canines run the gamut from lovable to ferocious, to alien and able to wield ninja kunai. Here’s our list of some of the best video game canines. Blanca – Shadow Hearts: Covenant Without Blanca, Yuri... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Wind Waker's Last Battle

    The Legend of Zelda needs no introduction. It’s one of the few series that had its start in the infancy of console gaming, but still remains strong. With 25 years of sacred temples, mystical sages, and fierce battles, one moment shines the brightest to me. The last confrontation with Ganondorf... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Majora's Mask Moon Crashing Into Termina

    Few, if any Zelda games, can match the darkness and maturity of Majora's Mask. This specific moment takes the cake as the title's most depressing. If you haven't played Majora's Mask (shame on you!), you should know that the premise of the game is that Link somehow finds an alternate... More
  • Blog Post: Bedtime Stories: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

    Certain games are burned into our memories. As we grow older, it becomes our responsibility to bore the next generation with stories of gaming's golden age. To test how well this inevitability will go over with kids these days, I set up the cameras and surprised Game Informer's associate editor... More
  • Blog Post: Spoiled! The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword

    Some fans argue that Link's recent adventure in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is wrapped in one of the most interesting stories in the franchise's history. Link's more developed relationship with Zelda, a mysterious new antagonist, and a personable rival all coalesce to deliver a narrative... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Zelda Games On CD-i

    With Skyward Sword about to release, it's a big weekend for the Legend of Zelda franchise. What better way to celebrate than looking back at Zelda's darkest hour? Jeff Cork, Andrew Reiner, and I join Kyle Hilliard to mock him for owning a Philips CD-i – one of the most notoriously terrible... More
  • Blog Post: Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering Phantom Hourglass

    I remember the moment The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass was announced at Game Developers Conference in 2006. Nintendo showed the debut trailer during its keynote address, and everyone in the room flipped out as is customary when a brand new Zelda is shown. The excitement had many different reasons... More
  • Blog Post: Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering The Minish Cap

    The Game Boy Advance was a renaissance of the glory days of 16-bit gaming in a lot of ways, but few of the system’s games approached the brilliance of Minish Cap. This wasn’t a simple port or reworking of a classic game or formula. Capcom’s last Zelda game was a joyous exploration of... More
  • Blog Post: Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering Ocarina Of Time

    I was not sold on the idea of a 3D Zelda. By 1998, both Sony and Nintendo had some strong 3D offerings out on the market, but Zelda? That was sacred and not to be messed with. The earlier games in the series were almost a genre in and of themselves – nothing else matched the thrill of exploration... More
