In a new video directed by Micah Moore, professional stuntmen who have appeared in Marvel films and The Walking Dead create a live-action battle between some classic Smash fighters. The team did an amazing job creating such an energetic brawl, bringing the...
Though I still haven’t beaten it, the classic Legend of Zelda always holds a near and dear spot in my heart.

Not the pixelated graphics that everyone identifies this game by,...
New York Comic-Con is my favorite time of year, and this year (2018) has been exceptionally fantastic for me.

I got to make a young girl's day by...

But does it really deserve such disdain? In many ways, yes, it does. However, to me, it’s for reasons I often don’t...
Today is the 20th anniversary of Link's Awakening DX for Game Boy Color. Released five years after the original, this game includes several additions to Link's Awakening, including the entire game being in color and a new dungeon. The story, however, still centers around collecting the eight Instruments of the Sirens (plus the ocarina) and performing the "Ballad of the Wind Fish" to awaken...

Twilight Princess has numerous callbacks to Ocarina of Time: the presence of Epona, Hyrule Castle and the surrounding town, and hints of ocarina melodies hidden inside wolf howls. But to me, the most...

Art is an expression of passion. It’s our interpretation of -- and reaction to -- the things we see, think and feel in our day-to-day life. And here's the best part: even children can express this...
The forests of Hyrule are not to be trifled with, and the Lost Woods are the ultimate example of why. Mystical, magical, and nearly incomprehensible, no one, not even the natural residents of the...
