A La Cartridge - The Wind Waker HD

For some pun-known reason, The Wind Waker HD appears to bring out the very best (or very worst) of Nintendo Life‘s and Destructoid‘s abilities to make Zelda-related puns. If you planned on cringing and/or laughing hard today, you’ll definitely want to check out these videos.

Also, Saria in advance for putting my own puns in this post. I know they’re Farore-ful but Din be sad–Gohma watch the video Anju won’t regret it. Don’t forget to Tael all your friends!

First off, we have Nintendo Life’s “Punboxing” video of The Wind Waker HD Ganondorf bundle–off to a great start, with a pun in the very title of the video. You may have seen some unboxing videos of the bundle or even had the pleasure of opening it yourself by now, but it’s the commentary that’s the real attraction here. Rory Cocker of Nintendo Life goes a step further by throwing around terrible jokes with hilariously deadpan delivery while he unboxes–with intonation emphasised on each pun just to make sure you get it. It sure would be a shame if you missed one, after all. I like this guy.

But I swear that Ganondorf figure looked Biggoron the official trailer.

Next we have the most recent episode of Destructoid’s Á La Cartridge. It’s a show I’m rather fond of hosted by Steven Hansen, wherein he shares recipes of cuisine based specifically on a recent game, and demonstrates how to prepare it. In his latest video, Steven’s jokes get particularly fishy while he cooks a WWHD-themed poached salmon. Quality comedy and great food? Sir, you spoil us.

But I hope you don’t plan on Keaton all of that by yourself.

You can go read the full recipe over on Destructoid!

    Omg, I love these videos, bad puns are the best. Also that salmon looks soooo good.

    Perhaps not trying to use every instance as a play on words would be best, comedy isn't about taking every single opportunity to be funny, because then it seems you are trying too hard to the audience, meaning the comedy loses its flavor. I suggest in the future that if you wish to include word puns in the article to utilize some moderation in doing so.

    • The D

      That's… wrong.
      You can have as many puns as you like so long as you're good at the delivery.
      This guy isn't, it's as simple as that.
      Oh and you're horrible at comedy please refrain from giving "advice" on that subject in the future.

      The art of pun-making IS to try too hard, force them in where they don't belong (tip: they don't belong anywhere) and to make them as un-funny and awful as possible. This isn't comedy gold we're dealing with–it's the opposite, and that's why it's funny. Or not. Depends on whether you enjoy terrible things for being terrible, like B-movies.

      Really, it's not to be taken so seriously.

    Farore-ful? That doesn't even make sense! Unless it's not pronounced Fah-ro-ray? I love all the other puns though.

    • Reece

      It is? If so, then whoops, I may have just been pronouncing that wrong all these years. I thought it was Fah-roar. Oh well, guess I'll just have to contact Nintendo and demand that they change the official pronunciation so it makes me look better.
