A video review of the next Legend of Zelda game due out on November 20th for the Nintendo Wii.A video review of the next Legend of Zelda game due out on November 20th for the Nintendo Wii.

GameTrailers sums up everything you would need to know about The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword in under ten minutes for your viewing pleasure. I've always had a real soft spot for Zelda games. This title may force me to blow the dust off of the old Nintendo Wii and hook it up via nine-hundred multi-colored component cables once again. Also, as the review demonstrates, the Wii really shows it's age with the graphics and lack of voice acting here. In the end though, it still looks like it will be an utterly fantastic Zelda game.

An awesome tutorial on how to build your very own Legend of Zelda treasure chest.An awesome tutorial on how to build your very own Legend of Zelda treasure chest.

What makes tutorial even more awesome (thus turning the awesome knob up to eleven) is even covers how to rig up that distinct melody made when you actually open up the treasure chest. You'll need some rupees to purchase the obvious supplies needed to get started such as plywood, glue, and furniture nails. You'll also need to stock your own your own boomerangs, silver arrows, and heart containers.

There just might be a playable version of the new Zelda game at this year's E3 expo.There just might be a playable version of the new Zelda game at this year's E3 expo.

This news comes straight from director of said game, Eiji Aonuma. It would appear that this new installment will also make use the MotionPlus capabilities of the Wii controllers. Great, because I didn't look enough like an idiot swinging the Wiimote around in the last game.

Next Legend of Zelda game will not be released until it is 'perfect'.Next Legend of Zelda game will not be released until it is 'perfect'.

This comes straight from Nintendo's President, Reggie Fils-Aime. Still no word on a release date so this title may not see the light of day until 2011. But hey, you have to figure that 'perfect game' will take some additional time to get right.

Ten amazing gingerbread creations for your viewing pleasure.Ten amazing gingerbread creations for your viewing pleasure.

Something about that gingerbread version of Link is quite disturbing to me - I can't seem to put my finger on what it is.  Now if you'll excuse me, I simply can't wait to go bomb some Dodongos.

Ars Technica gets some hands-on time with Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.Ars Technica gets some hands-on time with Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.

It's amazing how the classic Zelda gameplay mixed with the idea of model trains makes this a game that evokes so many good memories from growing up, as well as a very pleasant mood and feel while you're playing.

Next Zelda for the Nintendo Wii to include more body shaking activities.Next Zelda for the Nintendo Wii to include more body shaking activities.

I was secretly hoping they would announce less of this stuff in a new Zelda game. The gameplay mechanics for the last Wii Zelda game got stale really fast. Also, please don't make me go on another elaborate fishing mission again.

'Trust the hero inside, but if you're terrified, purchase the strategy guide.' Brilliant.

Important Quest

I had been reading a lot of PBF Comics at the time of making this comic and I had wanted to try something different from the whole 'guy on the left says this, guy on the right says that' scenario.  End result was what you see above.  Was fishing really essential to saving the Princess this time around?
