  • Blog Post: Watch The Animated History Of Nintendo's Consoles

  • Blog Post: Wind Waker Summarized With Beautiful Art

    The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker polarized fans of the series. For every person that applauded the game’s charming, cel-shaded art style, there was another decrying it as too kiddy and cartoonish.
