Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering Twilight Princess
on November 19, 2011 at 12:00 PM
Early in the evening on Saturday, November 18, 2006, I joined a line of teenagers, 20-somethings, and scruffy adults at a Wal-Mart in the middle of Minnesota – the nearest location to my tiny college that sold video games. I had never been to a midnight launch before, but years of Nintendo fandom...
Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering Spirit Tracks
on November 18, 2011 at 03:57 PM
I don’t believe in bad Zelda games. Sure, there are games in the franchise that have disappointed dedicated fans, but that doesn’t make them awful in general. I missed out on Spirit Tracks when it initially released, and the negative buzz towards the game didn’t encourage me to make...
Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering Phantom Hourglass
on November 17, 2011 at 06:13 AM
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...
Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering The Minish Cap
on November 16, 2011 at 12:00 PM
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...
Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering Four Swords Adventures
on November 15, 2011 at 10:45 AM
On paper, Four Swords Adventures sounded like a dream come true for me. It was a top-down Zelda title that featured an art style similar to A Link to the Past, and it allowed for four-player cooperative play. I knew it wouldn’t feature a full-length quest like the SNES classic, but the idea of...
Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering Majora's Mask
on November 13, 2011 at 10:45 AM
Considering I had to wait six years between A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time, the last thing I expected after the series’ 3D debut was a new console title within two years. I started hearing rumblings about a new Zelda in 1999, with the rumored titles Ura Zelda and Zelda: Gaiden. Screenshots...
Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering Ocarina Of Time
on November 12, 2011 at 12:00 PM
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...
Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering Capcom's Oracle Games And The CD-i Disasters
on November 11, 2011 at 10:00 AM
I was still in high school when Capcom hatched its plot to create a trilogy of linked Zelda games for the Game Boy Color, but I was already savvy enough (or at least cynical enough) to be deeply concerned at the prospect of Nintendo handing one of my favorite series over to another publisher. As it turns...
Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering Link’s Awakening
on November 10, 2011 at 03:35 PM
When the Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening came out, I was doubtful. The Game Boy was a cool system, but my favorite games had a habit of losing something in the portable transition. Mega Man lost entire stages. Mortal Kombat was an indecipherable mess. Even Mario wasn’t immune. Through the...
Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering A Link To The Past
on November 09, 2011 at 10:45 AM
While I appreciate the original Legend of Zelda and enjoyed playing through it years after its release, I was a toddler when it originally hit store shelves in 1987. I obviously wasn’t cognizant enough at the time to recognize its impact on the industry, but I do have faint memories of watching...
Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering Zelda II: The Adventure Of Link
on November 08, 2011 at 12:00 PM
Classic Nintendo games became a huge priority when I was a teenager. Being raised on Sega systems, I never had the chance to dig into the massive library of phenomenal NES games. As a little kid I spent a few fleeting moments with Mega Man, Castlevania, and Zelda at my cousin’s house, but I never...
Zelda 25th Anniversary: Remembering The Legend of Zelda
on November 07, 2011 at 12:08 PM
“Good morning. I’m wondering if you have the Legend of Zelda for Nintendo in stock.” “No.” “Do you know when you might be getting it?” “No. The games come in when they come in. They don’t tell us what’s coming ahead of time.” This telephone...
