A New, Nonsensical Twist on the Hero of Time

Posted on April 5, 2014 by Daisuke909

The Esquirebob Animations Youtube channel just recently posted an animation of the classic Legend of Zelda storyline, but with a unique and unusual twist: Link is fat.

It may sound simplistic and silly, but with high quality animation and a fitting original score, it actually has a sense of humor and charm that can be easily appreciated. Be sure to give it a watch if you like offbeat comedy.

Ever since Minecraft became a thing that people did, Zelda fans have been thinking of creative ways to take elements from the Zelda series and transplant them into Mojang’s indie phenomenon.

Give it a watch to see how it works.

Zelda Reaches Virtual Reality

Posted on February 22, 2014 by Daisuke909

No, this isn’t the next big revolution to the Zelda series. It’s actually a clone of the original The Legend of Zelda made for VirtualReality.io, the operating system for the Oculus Rift, which can be downloaded here. In this port, created by Ubiquitron, the player is placed in a first person perspective within the original NES game, with all the graphics, audio, and gameplay mostly intact. It is still in beta, with only the overworld and the first dungeon accessible, although the full version is planned to be released next month.

Check out this video by YOGSCAST Martyn, showing off the first dungeon.

If you think you would like it, you can download it here for free, although unless you are one of the few lucky people with access to an Oculus Rift, you won’t be able to fully experience it.

Brief Animation Captures Owl Rage

Posted on February 12, 2014 by Daisuke909

Pretty much everyone who has played Ocarina of Time hates Kaepora Gaebora, that wise old owl who dumps tiring amounts of exposition on the player at the worst possible moments. Well, the folks over at the Z. M. S. Youtube channel feel your pain, and have created a short animation to express it, ending with a macabre twist.

If you liked that video, be sure to check out their other two Zelda related animations, as well as their other videos in general.  Also be sure to check out their website here.

 

Smooth McGroove Does Zelda Again

This guy can’t seem to keep himself out of the news around here, and it’s not hard to see why. Mr. McGroove’s highly unique style is something that pretty much anyone can enjoy and, once again, he has turned his skills at one-man acapella to Zelda.

This time around it’s Ocarina of Time’s Kokiri Forest, a song that will surely bring back memories in long time Zelda fans.

Deep Analysis of Cultural Controversy in Zelda

Posted on January 25, 2014 by Daisuke909

I’m sure many of our readers are already familiar with the Game Theorists YouTube channel and one of their 3 main shows, Game Exchange. For the uninitiated, Game Exchange is a show about cultural references and influences in video games. This episode, the second related to Zelda, covers the more controversial cultural elements of the series, including the infamous Manji dungeon from the original game, and the most in-depth explanation of the Fire Temple chants that I’ve ever seen. Be sure to give it a watch if you’ve ever wondered about those things.

Gerudo Valley Interpreted on Violin

Posted on January 22, 2014 by Daisuke909

Youtube musical sensation Taylor Davis just recently posted a video of her interpretation of the fan-favorite Gerudo Valley theme from Ocarina of Time on violin. Davis is already famous for her work in video game music, Zelda in particular, but this project shows a new level of production value, effort, and skill unparalleled across much of the internet.

If you liked the video, be sure to check out Davis’s Youtube channel, as well as the video description, where there are a number of links related to her music (far too many to list here).

A Zelda Remix Unlike Anything We’ve Ever Seen

Posted on January 14, 2014 by Daisuke909

This work of musical art by Joshua Kershaw, also known as “Jeesh,” isn’t really a remix in the traditional sense. Titled “Hero of Time,” its more of an audio tribute to the whole series, rather than a reworking of one particular song. In fact, this original production seems to be made almost entirely out of sound effects and audio samples from nearly every game in the series.

Give it a watch, and then be sure to check out Kershaw’s YouTube channel for more unique musical artwork.

Quick Zelda Lore Video

Posted on January 11, 2014 by Daisuke909

The folks over at the LORE Youtube channel, famous for their Lore in a Minute series, have recently made a short video covering the history of the Zelda universe in just over 1 minute. The video is less an explanation of the Zelda timeline, of which we have many, and more an exploration of the world outside the games, although it does discuss the newest Zelda games in significant detail.

Be warned, as the video contains significant plot spoilers.

Be sure to check out their Youtube channel for more videos in this style centering around other gaming franchises, as well as two other Zelda related videos, neither of which are over 2 minutes.
