Episode 85 - We Review the Best Zelda Ever 2019 List and Pick Out What We Agree and Disagree With

December 3, 2019

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!

Episode 84 - Debating All The Aspects That Make Skyward Sword the Most Divisive Game Ever

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!

Maybe most importantly, is Hop the most annoying character Nintendo has ever created? Plus, why Okamiden is worth your time!

Come join Andy and Alasyn as they take a week off from Zelda and talk Pokémon!
