Legends of Zelda III

This is the third show I have put together about the Legend of Zelda series. The first was back in 2010 for Digital Cowboys when we covered most of the games in the series. The second was in early 2012 on Digital Gonzo when we covered the contentious Skyward Sword on the Wii (This episode is now available exclusively through Patreon). This time we’re looking at a bunch that we missed first time round, and one or two that have emerged more recently. 2001. Oracle of Seasons/Ages 2004. The Minish Cap 2006. Twilight Princess 2007. Link’s Crossbow Training 2007. The Phantom Hourglass 2009. Spirit Tracks 2011. Ocarina of Time 3D 2013. A Link Between Worlds 2013. Wind Waker HD 2014. Hyrule Warriors 2015. Majora’s Mask 3D My guests this time are Laura Kate Dale, Gary Blower, Glen Watts, Iain Hopwood, Lloyd Huhn, David Garcia Abril and Richard Lago. This show was recorded back in 2015 while the Switch was still called the NX, Breath of the Wild didn’t have a name and Twilight Princess HD had yet to be announced. When we do a fourth Zelda show it will be a lot sooner and will be all about Breath of the Wild, which after thirty or so hours of play may be my favourite of them all. https://schoolofmovies.podbean.com/mf/download/3dhywf/Legends_of_Zelda_III.mp3Podcast: Play in new window |...

Legends of Zelda

  [SOEE #39] Episode 164: Originally published July 16th 2010. Maybe the best of the Digital Cowboys episodes. This is all about Zelda through the years, covering every game and it comprises extracts from many, many interviews with podcasters and the DC community. What comes across is a very special game series. There is a justified reason why Nintendo releases these games in gold boxes and treats the moment as a major event. It’s difficult in fact to imagine many others being recounted with such fondness and with such importance. The frustration is also there; the bad design decisions and the repetitive formula, amid hopes for the future, all underscored by 25 years of incredible music. A huge thank you to everyone who contributed towards this show, without your submitted rich experiences, it wouldn’t have been a fraction as good. Guests: Dan Ilson – Everything is Better with Beer & Gonzo Planet Adam Capone – Joypod Leon Cox – Cane and Rinse & GamerDork Dits Symeou – The Gamerscene & Gonzo Planet Alex Shaw – Digital Cowboys, Digital Gonzo & Gonzo Planet Luke Carson – Digital Cowboys community Mik Phillips – The Fanboys Lunchcast & Gonzo Planet Ryan Astley – Gonzo Planet Michelle Smith – Pink & Deadly Paul Shotton – Digital Cowboys Tony Atkins – Cane and Rinse & Digital Cowboys James Batchelor – GameBurst, The WiiDS podcast & Gonzo Planet Leah Haydu – GamerDork, Some Other Castle & Gonzo Planet David Turner – Joypod Roy Fortitude – Digital Cowboys community cast Chris O’Regan – Superhappyfuntimeshow Josh Garrity – Cane & Rinse, Digital Cowboys Community cast & Gonzo Planet Edie Sellers – Gamehounds Daniel Floyd – Extra Credits http://schoolofmovies.podbean.com/mf/web/6hnuky/Digital_Cowboys_-_Episode_164.mp3Podcast: Play in new window |...

Digital Gonzo 53: Legends of Zelda – Skyward Sword

After the highly successful Legends of Zelda Episode #164 of Digital Cowboys I decided to build a follow-up show about the recent installment in the series; Skyward Sword. You will hear from six guests on the highs and lows of one of the last significant games on Nintendo’s most popular console to date. * Daniel Floyd of Extra Credits * Leah Haydu of GamerDork * James Batchelor of GameBurst * Gary Blower of GameBurst and Big Red Potion * Joshua Garrity of Cane and Rinse * Darren Gargette of Cane and Rinse All of whom have produced work for Gonzo Planet in the past. Their interviews are set against a backdrop of music both from Skyward Sword and the Zelda 25th Anniversary symphony. There are sections on what made them happy about the game, what made them unhappy and what they would like to see in future Zelda games. There is also a spoiler section at the end covering plot points from the Temple of Time onwards. It’s safe to listen to all but the last 20 minutes or so of the show, even if you’ve not yet played Skyward Sword, but save the ending for when you’ve finished or if you don’t mind spoilers. A huge thank you to everyone involved. It’s great to be back. If you haven’t heard it yet, make sure you download and listen to the first Legends of Zelda podcast which was Digital Cowboys Episode 164. It’s a collection of various interviews about each game in the series, starting with the original 1987 Legend of Zelda on the NES and stretching all the way over to Spirit Tracks on the DS. It’s impassioned, it’s honest and it’s far more than just a love-letter. Definitely one of the best projects I’ve been a part of – Alex. http://traffic.libsyn.com/gonzogaming/53._Legends_of_Zelda_Part_2_Skyward_Sword.mp3Podcast: Play in new window |...
