  1. Well guys, it’s Summer, and you know what that means… That’s right! It’s time to complain about how friggin’ hot it is. I mean, not everyone has to deal with 100+ degree heat like I do (lucky bastards!), but in your case, perhaps it’s just not hot enough to have a proper Summer experience. Seriously, why can’t the weather just be on our side for once? Fortunately, you don’t necessarily have to be outdoors to have some Summer fun. Why not just stay cooped up indoors and have yourself a virtual Summer? Maybe not all day every day, but when you just want to get out of the insanely hellish or not-hot-enough Summer temperatures, what better alternative than to relax on the beach, only while chilling indoors? Well, if that sounds enticing to you, then allow me to share with you five games you should play over the Summer. 5. Dead Island In real life, I wouldn’t exactly call a zombie-infested island a great resort to spend your Summer vacation. Dead Island, of course, isn’t real life, so the vacation is actually kinda fun. I mean, didn’t you ever go to the beach and wish you could just shoot some zombies? I know I have. And really, you can go ahead and play whichever game in the series you feel like playing, as they pretty much have the same premise: being stranded on a sunny island resort with some pesky undead tourists roaming around. Sounds like a nice little Summer getaway, if you ask me. 4. Pokémon: Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon If you’d like to spend your Summer in Hawaii catching Pokémon, then great news! That’s basically what Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are. Taking place in the Hawaii-inspired Alola region, these two enhanced versions of Sun and Moon feature most of what you’ve come to expect from the series along with some interesting new creatures to capture, including Alolan forms of a few Pokémon you already know and love. A few other things that help to differentiate this generation from others include the replacement of gyms and the inclusion of “Totem Pokémon.” Oh, and Ultra Beasts. All in all, it’s a great iteration in the Pokémon series, and a fun game to play over the Summer. 3. Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Here’s a game where girls wearing bikinis play some volleyball on the beach. If that doesn’t scream “Summer fun,” then I don’t know what does. Of course, there isn’t much else to Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, but hey, I’m sure plenty of dudes are fine with that. Oh, me? Well, uh… No comment. If you’re a girl, of course, this might not appeal to you quite as much, but there’s still a bit of fun to be had aside from the, um, impressive “physics.” No, seriously, I’m no pervert! I don’t even like this game! PLEASE BELIEVE ME! Sigh… Guess this is what I get for including this game on my list… 2. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker If your idea of Summer fun involves cruising the vast ocean, waves crashing around as you discover an island of Tingles (well, dunno about that last part, but if that’s your thing…), then you can’t go wrong with The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Whether you have the original GameCube copy or the HD version for the Wii U, this game boasts vibrant visuals, a great soundtrack, and some delightfully quirky characters. Like Tingle. And his equally strange brothers. It’s just an all-around fantastic Zelda game and one that really gives you a nice Summer vibe. KOOLOO-LIMPAH! Oh God, w-why did I just say that? Guys, I think I might have a problem… 1. Super Mario Sunshine If you’ve got a GameCube laying around, or perhaps a backwards-compatible Wii (or maybe you could remaster this game already, eh Nintendo?), and have yourself a copy of Super Mario Sunshine (seriously, an HD version would be nice, or at least an eShop download), go ahead and boot it up for some wonderful Summer-themed bliss. The game takes place while Mario and Peach go on a vacation to Delfino Isle and, you know, obviously things don’t go as planned. As Mario, you must go around the island cleaning up goop. I promise, the game is a blast, despite the somewhat odd premise, and is the perfect game to play this Summer. What are your plans for the Summer? Do you plan on going to a real beach/resort? Or are you planning on playing some games instead? Let us know in the comments below.

  3. Were you expecting Twilight Princess 3D? To be fair, you might still get it...or something else Zelda-related entirely. But it seems one of the games Nintendo/Koei-Tecmo were due to announce during E3 2015 is a 3DS version of Hyrule Warriors, the Zelda-spin-off that hit Wii U just one year ago. And this time, there are Wind Waker characters like Tetra and the King of Red Lions. Consistent with the absolutely crazy Downloadable Content released for the Wii U version of the game--these characters come with some insane twists. The Japanese trailer from Koei-Tecmo“s Official Channel has been made private, so I can“t link it here. ...for now? At any rate: it seems the Wind Waker characters (and presumably any other new content) will be able to be transferred to the Wii U version of the game, after you purchase the hand-held variant. And last but not least, as seen in the game“s box-art, this one“s coming to the entire 3DS family of systems--it won“t be New 3DS exclusive, or anything like that. Are you excited to play Hyrule Warriors on Nintendo 3DS? How do you feel about some of these new characters? Be sure to let us know!
  4. "It's a secret to everybody nobody." Okay, that was lame... Let's just get to the point. About two months ago, I shared with you Five Zelda Theories Backed By Hyrule Historia. Hyrule Historia, of course, being the legendary book of everything by the Zelda creators themselves. But the fun doesn“t end with just five, as I“ve got five more for you in Part II of our theory-filled analysis! So sit back, relax, and possibly don“t fall asleep as I conclude Hyrule Theoria with another five theories backed by Hyrule Historia. Warning: Potential spoilers abound! The Deku Mask in Majora“s Mask Holds the Spirit of the Deku Butler“s Son Majora“s Mask is depressing enough as it is, what with a friggin“ Moon about to destroy the world and all. But before all that happens, a Skull Kid wearing a certain mask transforms Link into a Deku Scrub, after which he runs into a dead Deku Scrub before eventually meeting the Happy Mask Salesman. But who exactly is this Deku Scrub? Well, later in the game Link meets a tribe of Deku Scrubs. In this tribe is a butler, who mentions his son leaving home long ago and never returning. And it was strongly implied during the credits of the game that this is his son, as you can see the Deku Butler weeping over this dead Deku Scrub. So then, is it possible that this Deku Scrub“s spirit is what the Skull Kid used to transform Link into a Deku Scrub? Link eventually gets his curse lifted, which then turns into the Deku Mask and allows Link to turn into a Deku Scrub whenever he wants. The thing is, the masks that transform Link into things are inhabited by the souls of the dead. Throughout the game, Link meets some of these dead souls, but never the one living inside the Deku Mask. Many fans believed that this is indeed the spirit of the Deku Butler“s missing son, and that theory was recently confirmed by Hyrule Historia on page 112, which reads, “Link“s transformation into a Deku Scrub is caused by the spirit of a member of the Deku tribe that died in the forest connecting Hyrule and Termina.†The Temple of Time in Twilight Princess Is the Same One From Ocarina of Time Twilight Princess takes place roughly 100 years after Ocarina of Time, so of course you would expect some similarities between the two games in terms of locations. Some of these are more apparent than others, such as the Lost Woods and Death Mountain. But how about the Temple of Time? In Ocarina of Time, the temple is found near Hyrule Castle close to the center of the land. However, in Twilight Princess, the temple is found deep within a forest. This couldn“t possibly be the same Temple of Time, could it? It might seem strange, but when you look at the similarities between the two Temples of Time, the resemblance is quite striking to say the least. Many fans have taken this as a sign that they are indeed one in the same, and that the temple simply decayed and became overrun with plant life over the years. And you know what, those guys are right. On page 117 of Hyrule Historia, it states that “the Temple of Time, home to the Master Sword“s pedestal, has rotted away and lies in ruins within the forest.†There was another theory claiming that the temple was simply moved to another location, but that now appears to be false. Sorry, believers of that theory. The Hero of Time Makes an Appearance in Twilight Princess In Twilight Princess, there are many connections to Ocarina of Time, from similar locations to the same Ganondorf even making an appearance. One connection you probably wouldn“t expect is the Hero of Time, Link himself, making some sort of appearance, considering each Link is a reincarnation of the same spirit. But some people did suspect that, as the Hero“s Shade shares some similarities, such as his left-handed swordsmanship and the nature of some of his dialogue. But that couldn“t possibly be the spirit of the Hero of Time, could it? I mean, that spirit lies within Link himself, so it couldn“t possibly be him. But alas, it is the spirit of the Hero of Time. Or rather, it“s the spiritual manifestation of the hero“s regrets. According to Hyrule Historia, in a note on page 118, “The spirit of Link“s ancestor, the Hero of Time, teaches him his secrets. Ever since returning to the Child Era, the swordsman has lamented the fact that he was not remembered as a hero. This is the reason he passes down the proof of his courage and his secret techniques to the Link of this era, addressing him as ”son.“†The reason for these regrets is, of course, the fact that once Link had returned to the Child Era, he never defeated Ganondorf and saved Hyrule. He saved Termina, but that kind of news doesn“t exactly travel with him back to Hyrule. Not without Link looking crazy, anyway (“I saved a parallel world, I swear I did!â€). Descendants of Ocarina of Time“s Great Deku Tree, Volvagia, and Jabu-Jabu Appear in The Wind Waker When people met the Great Deku Tree in The Wind Waker, a common speculation that was made was that this Deku Tree was the mature Deku Tree Sprout found in Ocarina of Time. This theory was supported by the way they both talk and the fact that The Wind Waker“s Deku Tree seems to recognize Link“s green tunic. And of course, with The Wind Waker being in the Adult Timeline, the only one the Deku Tree Sprout survives in, this isn“t too far-fetched at all. But other than him, there has also been speculation that Valoo was somehow related to Volvagia and Jabun was related to Jabu-Jabu, though these theories aren“t as well-supported. These theories weren“t dismissed, however, as Hyrule Historia touches upon them as well. On page 127 of the book, a note reads “Even after the land of Hyrule was sealed away, the guardian spirits of the three pearls of the goddesses remain. They are thought to be descended from Volvagia, the Deku Tree, and Jabu-Jabu, spirits that existed during the Era of the Hero of Time.†This doesn“t entirely confirm these theories as facts, nor does it say anything about the Great Deku Tree from The Wind Waker being the mature Deku Tree Sprout from Ocarina of Time, but it does support the possibility of Valoo, Jabun, and the Great Deku Tree (WW) being descendants of the three guardian spirits Volvagia, Jabu-Jabu, and the Great Deku Tree (OoT), especially when the authors know all of Zelda“s secrets. At least, I would hope the creators of Zelda would know all there is to know about the series… There Was a Link Before Skyward Sword The Link in Skyward Sword is thought to be the very first Link by many. However, it is also known that that very same Link is the successor to a hero chosen by Hylia herself during the Era of the Goddess Hylia thousands of years prior. In fact, the ceremony at the beginning of the game has Zelda playing the goddess while Link plays this chosen hero. But who exactly is this hero? Could it possibly be an earlier incarnation of Link, rather than simply a successor? Many think so, but no one can really say for certain. However, at the very back of Hyrule Historia is a Skyward Sword manga that tells the tale of this chosen hero, who is depicted as the earliest incarnation of Link, green tunic and all. The 32-page manga also explains that this hero tempered the Master Sword with his spirit, being destined to serve as its master for all eternity. Furthermore, the red loftwing from Skyward Sword also makes an appearance in the manga, somehow having lived for thousands of years, and choosing Link specifically because he is the reincarnation of the first Link. And when the first Link dies toward the end, Hylia says “I will ensure that your gentle, heroic spirit will live on eternally. And I… I shall shed my divinity. The next time we meet, I wish to stand before you as a simple human.†Keep in mind that this manga hasn“t been confirmed as canon to the series, but being included in Hyrule Historia is certainly strong support for that possibility. And to further support the theory that there was indeed a Link before Skyward Sword, Eiji Aonuma himself once stated in an interview the possibility of future Zelda games taking place before Skyward Sword. If this theory is accurate, we may very well see a future Zelda game taking place at the beginning of everything, with Link being Hylia“s chosen hero. Only time will tell...
  5. Nintendo President Satoru Iwata announced a lot of things during today's Wii U Direct broadcast, including many games that people have been dying to hear about ever since the Wii U was initially announced. Of these games was a new Zelda game in development for Wii U, which didn't have any footage or foreseeable release window. However, after Iwata turned the floor over to the Zelda series' own Eiji Aonuma, an old favorite was revealed to be coming to the console this Fall with an HD makeover - The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Aonuma explained that he and his team decided on this remastering because of how impressive the results were when they tried out different art styles and concepts that could potentially be used for their new Legend of Zelda title. After much deliberation, it was ultimately decided that they would remake The Wind Waker for Wii U, as the new original Zelda game is still a ways a way. In other words, this is Nintendo's way of making the wait more bearable Not only that, though, but this is also their way of bringing this classic to an audience who didn't originally own a GameCube or the original game. As far as enhancements go, there is the obvious: it has been remade in glorious HD with stunning visuals not possible on the GameCube. You can see the visual differences for yourself in the screenshots below. Aside from that, the new Wind Waker will boast various gameplay improvements, support for playing on the GamePad alone, and compatibility with Miiverse. Are you excited to play The Wind Waker in HD? Have you played the game before or will this be your first time experiencing it?
