Yuga’s Art Gallery: A beaded Link in the wind

There are things I used to do in my childhood that I no longer spend time doing, like trying to learn new yo-yo tricks or playing with Perler beads. Not because I don’t want to, but rather because life and responsibilities came between and, if I have to be completely honest, because I’m too lazy to fix the broken string to my yo-yo. But even though I’m not doing all the things I once used to,…

Realm of Memories: The start of something beautiful

It’s funny how memories work. I cannot remember the first time I rode a bike or my first day of school. I cannot remember the first time I saw snow or even my first holiday.

It sounds like the start of a cheesy movie but the excitement and awe that I felt that day is something that I will never…

Tingle’s Maps: Deepwood Shrine

If you ask me, the first dungeon of a linear Zelda game is the most important. It introduces you to how puzzles will typically go; they’re never overly difficult and they establish an idea of how combat encounters will typically be presented in that particular game.

I find that a good first dungeon sets all the precedents and gets you excited for not just overcoming its challenges, but whets…
