Return of the Speed Run Article: Ocarina of Time

August 1, 2013

Cosmo Wright. A well known name in speed runs these days. His latest run on Twitch TV certainly turned a few heads: 22 Minutes for: Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Much faster than my 8 or 9 hours… I thought that was the world record until I did a few searches to discover that nedeaS managed to shave 3 minutes off (somehow!).

December 22, 2008

swordswingLoZremakeThe Legend of Zelda has been a successful series for Nintendo, giving them the equivalent of a “free pass” in terms of game development. All Nintendo needs to do is release a game that has the words “Zelda” or “Link” or “Hyrule” in it, and they automatically have a large number of units sold. This free pass, however, apparently can apply to flash developers as well.

Take a look at the Top 5 Legend of Zelda remakes on the web right now.
