Episode 179 - Inspired By Zelda Showcase: Discussing All the Best Zelda-Like Games You Can Play

September 20, 2021

If you're anything like us, you might feel like you're in a bit of a Zelda drought. With no new new Zelda games for the last couple years and a bunch of remakes to hold us over, the itch to play something Zelda-like can feel pretty intense. Luckily this week, Andy and Al are covering some of the absolute best Zelda-like games you can play! Come hear us talk about classics like Okami, Shadow of the Colossus, and Hyper Light Drifter, while also detailing newer games like Ittle Dew, Moonlighter, and Fairune! Come hang and let us know what your favorite Inspired By Zelda titles are!

PLUS, come listen to Andy's miserable Tim Horton's coffee story and hear the gang speculate as to why we haven't gotten a Nintendo Direct yet!

Episode 177 - Ask A Zelda Question, Get A Zelda Answer!

September 6, 2021

This week, Andy makes his triumphant return to the show to tell a few wedding stories about his bachelor party and a homeless person sleeping in his car, while also tackling a plethora of Zelda questions! We asked you for your best, and as always, you didn't disappoint! What's our favorite mini-dungeon in the series? What kind of Zelda game do we think comes after Breath of the Wild 2? Other than Clock Town, what's our favorite town in the series? If we could add any character from Zelda into Super Smash Bros., who would it be? What's an effective way to tell stories in open world video games? What gameplay mechanics from previous games do we think would be cool to see again?

All this and so much more in an action packed episode of the Cast! Make sure to grab your Champions' Cast hoodies and snuggle up to your speakers, cause this episode is a riot!

Episode 174 - Should We Call It The Zelda Multiverse Instead of the Zelda Timeline and More Daily Debates Answered

August 16, 2021

Andy and Al are back for another fun ride through the world of Zelda, answering a bunch of Daily Debate questions. Which Link has the best character arc? Which game has the least amount of plot holes? Would we like to see upgradable items and weapons make a comeback? Was Demise way too hard of a final boss? Should we stop calling it the Zelda timeline and instead call it a Multiverse?

All this and so much more! Come and hang out with us!

Episode 173 - Ranking the Dungeons of Skyward Sword

Episode 173 - Ranking the Dungeons of Skyward Sword

August 8, 2021

Last week in our Definitive Ranking of Skyward Sword, we glossed over the dungeons, giving them a perfect 5 and promising to elaborate the next week. Well, that week is now here, and we have a lot to say about the different dungeons of Skyward Sword! We go over all seven dungeons, discussing in great detail the bosses, the items, the music, the aesthetic, and puzzles, and more! We had wildly different rankings, so there was some hard bargaining too! Come tell us what you think of our list, and make sure to let us know what your faves are!

PLUS... what kind of world are we living in when Nintendo acknowledges Metroid's 35th anniversary and not Zelda's?! Craziness!

Episode 172 - Definitively Ranking Skyward Sword

Episode 172 - Definitively Ranking Skyward Sword

August 2, 2021

Alasyn returns this week to join Andy in one of their absolute favorite activities: definitive rankings! Borrowing the concept from their Hyrule Compendium pals, definitive ranking entails taking the ten categories that really make up a Zelda game - the world, the art style, the story, the music, the dungeons, the bosses, the items, the pacing, the extras, and the gameplay - and ranking it from 1 to 5. Where does Skyward Sword fall on our list? Come listen to find out!

Plus, don't miss next week, and as dive deep into the dungeons of Skyward Sword, PLUS, we talk some Zelda Dungeon Marathon! Come hang out with us!

July 25, 2021

Happy ZDMX week everyone! This week, our pal Alasyn is away for the 10th annual Zelda Dungeon Marathon, so we're cracking open a previously-Twitch-exclusive episode pitting Andy and Al against Zelda Universe's Alex Trevino and Amanda van Hiel! There might be a few audio hiccups on here, but we figured it was better than skipping a week of the show, so come on and play with us! There are some epic doozeys in here, o come and see which competitor walks away the champion from this Fatal 4-Way matchup!

It's finally here! The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is one of both Andy and Alasyn's favorite Zelda games ever, so there was a lot to look forward to in the new HD remaster.
