    Episode 195 - Princess Mononoke and its Influence on Breath of the Wild

    Episode 195 - Princess Mononoke and its Influence on Breath of the Wild

    We're back for another week with a very special episode, one that we've been looking forward to for a while: analyzing the world, characters, and themes of Studio Ghibli's 1997 masterpiece Princess Mononoke and seeing how that movie made a lasting impressing on the Zelda series, and Breath of the Wild in particular. We compare Link and Ashitaka, Zelda and San, Lady Eboshi and the citizens of Irontown to the fabled Sheikah clan, analyze the similar themes of nature versus technology, and even look to the plot of Princess Mononoke to deduce where we might be headed in Breath of the Wild 2.


    Come get sweat away with us, and PLUS - we reveal our big episode 200 plans! Come and hang out, and if you haven't ever seen it, or maybe it's been a while, do yourself a favor and watch Princess Mononoke this week!

    Episode 194 - The Legend of Zelda Fan Q&A

    Episode 194 - The Legend of Zelda Fan Q&A

    We are answering a PLETHORA of fan questions, so with absolutely no time to waste, let's go over some of what we touch on this week. Other than Breath of the Wild 2, what's our biggest hope for Zelda in 2022? Why aren't the CD-i game included in Best Zelda Ever? What' the right balance between reveal and release? What Nintendo IP would we sacrifice to bring another IP back from the dead? What old Zelda bosses should make a comeback? Will there be a Breath of the Wild 3?


    All this and so much more, PLUS, tune in next week when we detail our big plan for episode 200!

    Episode 193 - Our Hopes For Zelda in 2022

    Episode 193 - Our Hopes For Zelda in 2022

    Happy New Year everyone! To kick off 2022, we're looking back at the year that was and then up ahead at the year that is to come! Was Zelda's 35th anniversary really that bad? Do we think Breath of the Wild 2 is still on track to release in 2022? What was the turning point in 2021 where fans started to get grumpy with the anniversary? Are hopes for a mobile Zelda game officially dead? Is Minish Cap headed to Switch in 2022? And what did Mario and Covid do to throw our Zelda 35 expectations out of whack?


    All this and a lot more too, PLUS, don't forget to head over to Discord or Facebook to ask us a Zelda question for next week!

    Episode 192 - Reviewing Zelda Dungeon‘s Best Zelda Ever 2021 List

    This is our last show on 2021, so we're going out with a bang and celebrating the culmination of all of our writing team's hard work: Best Zelda Ever 2021! Our annual list is out, and of course Andy and Al were two of the writer that contributed to the list, so this week, we're going over the finished product and seeing what we agree with and what we don't! Come listen to some scathing rants and glorious insight into some of the more underappreciated games.


    All this PLUS, a little Spider-Man talk (no spoilers, promise!), Matrix Resurrections hype, and more movie chatter. Come hang out, and thank you for another wonderful year of Zelda podcasting!

    Episode 191 - Breath of the Wild 2 No-Shows a Frustrating Game Awards Show

    Episode 191 - Breath of the Wild 2 No-Shows a Frustrating Game Awards Show

    The title really says it all, doesn't it? This week, we go over everything shown and, more importantly, not shown at The Game Awards this year, including Breath of the Wild 2. Come hear Andy explain why he's losing anticipation for the sequel, our thoughts on The Game Awards as a legitimate award, our reactions to some of the games shown, and how Geoff Keighley fumbled an important chance to hold companies like Activision and Blizzard accountable on such a big stage.


    All this, PLUS, some crazy dog barking, new coffee flavors, and how we like to Christmas shop! Come hang out!

Something to look forward to each week

A lot of negative opinions on this podcast, you’d think fans of a series could articulate what they like about a series, rather than just positioning the fact that they like something as a cheap disclaimer, before diving into their myriad of complaints.

Better than the last two outings, but still not great, on a positive point, savanna seems alright, like to hear more from her.
