If you hadn’t caught on already, we here at United We Game hold The Legend of Zelda series close to our hearts. We also enjoy this time of year when thoughts turn towards celebrating Halloween, especially in games. This year, we decided to combine the two into a new posting theme: Zelda-ween! Over the next three weeks, Hatm0nster, The Duck, and I will be offering up spooky posts on spooky themes in the Zelda series: enemies, dungeons, and unintentional scares. It’s going to be spook-tacular!

Making Nice with the Twilight Princess: Update #5

If you didn’t catch this already, I couldn’t be happier to report that I recently completed (like, finished finished) The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess! You can check out how things went in my final hours of fighting the Twilight with Link, Midna, and Zelda over on United We Game.

VIRTUAL BASTION

In my previous post, I’m semi-predicted that I’d have this game in the bag by Labor Day. Well, here we are a couple days early, and I have done it! Yes, I am more than happy to report that I’ve completed The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, final boss battle and all!  So let’s journey back to see how it happened.

When I last left the game, I had just finished weaving my way through the gloriously enjoyable Temple of Time. I really don’t know why I found it so fun leading around a giant statue with the Dominion Rod, but I did! Unfortunately, it turned out that all the work in the temple had depleted the rod, so Link had to find a way to get it working again.

At the Buzzer’s Top 25 Zelda Items of All-Time

It’s the start of a new year, and that means that the good people of At The Buzzer are kicking off another countdown! Last year, they were kind enough to extend to me the opportunity to participate in their top video game characters lists. This year’s list is all about items in the Legend of Zelda games. And when the invite came to cast my votes, I just couldn’t say no! I mean, you can probably count on one hand the number of immortal game series that boast item inventories as robust as those in the Zelda games. Below is the introductory post that explains the whos and whats. From there you can link to all the current posts in the list. Follow along for the big reveal of the WORLD’S* NUMBER ONE FAVORITE ZELDA ITEM OF ALL TIME EXCLAMATION POINT at the end of the month!

*not an exaggeration…maybe.

PREVIOUS TOP 25s: Video Games, Pokemon, Male VG Characters, Female VG Characters

With the new year comes a brand-new ranking, something a bit different than what we’ve done before: the top 25 Zelda items of all-time.

This is a bit of an odd bird compared to our other lists. Like our picks for the best Pokemon ever, this ranking has a finite number of choices. After sifting through the inventory screens for each Zelda game in the series so far, I narrowed it down to about 220 choices. Pretty much anything that you can acquire is eligible as long as it shows up on one of those screens, with the exception of the Triforce of Courage. So tunics, swords, shields, weapons, bottles, Tingle Tuners, etc. were all possibilities.

Though we’ll discuss this a bit more as we reveal our choices, a few items were combined if they…
