We are following suit and making a companion piece for our good friends Mases and Gooey's definitive ranking of Twilight Princess and offering our own, Champions' Cast take on the game. We rank the game based off categories like music, story, dungeons, items, world, and more! You do not wanna miss this one!

92 episodes in and we finally have an episode of the Champions' Cast all about... the Champions! Mipha, Urbosa, Daruk, and Revali - what did we like from them, is there any chance we see them in the sequel, did we like their send off in Breath of the Wild? Sidon, Riju, Yunobo, and Teba - what do we want from them in the sequel, what would make them stand out more, and should they be playable characters?
All this, plus Byleth talk! Make sure you don't miss out!

This week, we have a very special show for everyone - a question mailbag episode! We take all of YOUR questions and answer them in a fun back and forth that features a new special guest on the show, Brittany Reginelli! Should Link and Zelda have a kid? What's one mechanic from one Zelda we'd like to see in another? Are classic 2D games dead? Should the new Champions from Breath of the Wild play a large role in the sequel?
All this and more! Listen here!

We're back and kicking off 2020 in a hot way by going nearly an hour and half talking about the supposed back sheep of the Zelda series... Zelda II Adventure of Link! Somehow, we convinced Mases to join us two weeks in a row to deep dive into the second NES Zelda title. What did we love? What do we hate? Is this game as bad as people say? Can a new player realistically enjoy it in 202? And most of all, should this game be remade?
All this and more in an action packed episode! Hop in your time machine and join us as we wax nostalgic about this classic!

Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for listening to the show all year and helping us have our best year yet! We thought we'd start off the new decade right by speculating what we expect and want to see from Zelda inn 2020. Does Breath of the Wild 2 come out? What about Skyward Sword HD? More Cadence of Hyrule? How about a Zelda Dungeon Maker? New Zelda characters in Smash? Plus, what about Nintendo itself in the New Year?
Mases joins Andy and Alasyn to talk all this and more! Make sure you don't miss it!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! We've got a special holiday treat for you as we jump in the 'best of the decade' bandwagon ad take a look back at the highs and lows of Zelda over the last decade! Breath of the Wild, Skyward Sword's E3 demo, incredible trailers, Hyrule Historia, and more! Don't miss this one!
From all of us, thank you for your support and we hope you get to eat a ton of food this week!

So... the Game Awards. Yikes. As you no doubt know by now, the Game Awards offered Nintendo fans a whole big steaming plate of nothing, offering three and a half hours worth of content with exactly zero really notable Nintendo announcements. In this weeks sow, we talk about our reactions and how long into the show until we all started drinking (spoiler: not long). All this, plus looking back on the year that was for the Nintendo Switch!
We talk all of Nintendo's ups and downs for the year, so make sure you don't miss out on this episode!

Hello and welcome to another episode! This weeks show is all about the Game Awards - predicting the winners, talking about how much Fire Emblem Three Houses was snubbed, speculating on the last Smash Bros. DLC character, and asking the million dollar question: do we see Breath of the Wild 2?!
Join us as we have some fun talking about gaming's biggest award show of the year!

Zelda Dungeon recently launched its biggest feature of the year with its Best Zelda Ever 2019 Edition List, so the crew get together and weight in on what they think of each games placement. How did Twilight Princess rank so high? How did Skyward Sword rank so low? Do too many people have rosy colored glasses when it comes to A Link to the Past? And most importantly - how does Kevin live with himself ranking Tri Force Heroes as his favorite Zelda?!
All this and more in this action packed episode!

Put your fighting gloves on 'cause it's time to pick your side in the Zelda Dungeon Civil War! With Best Zelda Ever 2019 coming this week, Andy, Alasyn, and Rod reflect on the most divisive Zelda game ever: Skyward Sword. You either love it or you hate it, and we examine why that is. Does Demise undermine Ganon? Were the controls really that bad? Is Fi the best or worst companion? Where do we fall on narrative vs exploration?
These questions are just the tip of the iceberg! I think this is one of the best episodes ever of The Champions' Cast, so give it a listen and let us know where you fall!
