Episode 160 - Discussing Our Favorite Versions of Princess Zelda

May 10, 2021

Another week in the bags as we get closer and closer to E3 and (hopefully) Zelda's return. To help pass the time, we are talking about a different Zelda this week... or actually, a bunch of them! Andy and Alasyn are discussing all of the different appearances of Princess Zelda over the years and which ones they liked and disliked. Everything from the character design to the story to the character arcs and everything else are on the table here, so make sure you check it out and weight in on your favorite versions of Zelda. Unsurprisingly, Andy has an particularly harsh opinion of one of the series' most beloved incarnations of Zelda, so you'll definitely want to check this out!

All this, PLUS some TV talk! House of Cards, The Expanse, Castlevania, and more! Come hang with us!

Episode 159 - Definitively Ranking Every Boss/Mini-Boss from Ocarina of Time

Episode 159 - Definitively Ranking Every Boss/Mini-Boss from Ocarina of Time

May 2, 2021

Welcome back to another DEFINITIVE RANKING. This time around, we're talking the bosses (and mini-bosses!) of Andy's favorite game, Ocarina of Time! With no fewer than 16 (woo!) creatures to rank, the gang has some pretty dastardly conversation about which bosses rule, and which bosses are a little average. Is steak more important than sizzle in a boss fight? And can Andy and Al compromise to determine the greatest fight in the game? We'll see!

Ganondorf, Dark Link, Bongo Bongo, Dead Hands, Twinrova and SO MUCH MORE! Come tell us what you think about our rankings, and of course, let us know where you stand!

Episode 158 - Thought Experimenting the Biggest “What If” Scenario’s in Zelda History

Episode 158 - Thought Experimenting the Biggest “What If” Scenario’s in Zelda History

April 26, 2021

Imagine if certain things had turned out differently in the history of Zelda, if just a couple changes had been made in the "real world timeline", how different the Zelda series might look today? It's kind of a mindbend, thinking about how history might look completely different, so this week, the gang goes full bore into the thought experiments to speculate and hypothesize what would have happened if certain things had been different over the years. What if Skyward Sword's E3 demo worked? Would Zelda fans like it more? What if Breath of the Wild had come out for Wii U as intended? Would it have saved that console or doomed the Switch? What if The Wind Waker had used the Spaceworld graphical style? What if the 80's cartoon had more heavily influenced the series going forward?

All these questions discussed and so much more! Come play along with us and let us know YOUR biggest "What If" questions!

Episode 157 - Rental Systems, Wall Merging, Copy Cat Syndrome, and More in A Link Between Worlds Q&A!

Episode 157 - Rental Systems, Wall Merging, Copy Cat Syndrome, and More in A Link Between Worlds Q&A!

April 19, 2021

Another week, another Legend of Zelda game specific Q&A! This week, we asked our community on Discord and Facebook to ask us anything they wanted to about one of the most overlooked games in the franchise: A Link Between Worlds!

Cody Davies of Zelda Universe joins the gang this week to tackle topics like our thoughts on the rental system, was the map too similar to A Link to the Past, who was our favorite Sage, what did we think of the big twist at the end, how much time did we spend in the Milk Bar, and so much more!

Come hang out with us and make sure you're following us so that you can get it in on the action next time we have a Q&A!

Episode 156 - Is Breath of the Wild 2 Losing Hype, Ilia as a Love Interest, E3 is Back, and More Daily Debates Answered

April 11, 2021

This week for the show, we do what we always do when there's nothing particularly pressing to talk about: steal the great ideas of our Zelda Dungeon writing team and answer some of their Daily Debates! Tune in and hear our two cents on topics like: is Breath of the Wild 2 losing anticipation? Which Zelda game offers the most replay value? Should the series introduce post game content? Would we name a kid after a Zelda character? Which game do we wish we could experience again for the first time? And Ilia... well, we haven't heard a good Twilight Princess rant in a while, so if you're a fan of that, you're in luck!

All this, PLUS we give our takes on E3 coming back and what that means for Breath of the Wild 2! Come listen!

Episode 155 - Playing a Game of Guess That Zelda Song

Episode 155 - Playing a Game of Guess That Zelda Song

April 4, 2021

Musical March Madness may be over, but that doesn't mean we're done with Zelda music! This week, we play a game of Guess That Zelda Song, where the one and only webmaster of Zelda Dungeon Mases Hagopian joins the fray to be the master of ceremonies in a "who can name that tune quicker" battle of wits between Andy and Alasyn! How bad is everyone's memory? What obvious Zelda track did we flub up? How many YouTube ads did we forget to skip before the music actually started playing!?

Come find out and play along with us!

Episode 154 - Ranking the Most Underrated Dungeons in The Legend of Zelda

March 29, 2021

What's better than a good ol' fashioned ranking episode? Not much, so we're reaching into our bag of tricks to pull out ten dungeons that we feel are underrated! Of course, the term underrated is pretty subjective, so there's bound to be some ones that ruffle some feathers, but come listen as we rap about our picks. Listen to which games the dungeons come from, why nobody talks about them, and have fun making your own list!

All this, PLUS come hear about Andy's weeeird Breath of the Wild 2 dream. Premonition...?! Who knows!
