Teamwork: The Link and Zelda Story

Written by

The Legend of Zelda has to be one of most known game series in modern history. So, why is the title so misleading? Let’s think about this for a moment. What does a Zelda game usually encompass? A grand adventure, an evil villain plotting on taking over the world, big dungeons, huge monsters, treasure, a legendary sword and a young boy named Link. But wait, a boy named Link? Where’s Zelda? You would figure in such a blatant title that we would be playing as the titular character but no. Why are we playing as a boy named Link? Where is Zelda in all of this? Why is Link deemed to be the hero of Hyrule?

This week, enigma talks about Digital Devil Saga 2 and his thoughts on the game.

Sef's Obscure Game Gallery: No One Can Stop Mr. Domino

Written by

Normally when I start a “Sef's Obscure Game Gallery” piece, I weave a story that summarizes the opening of the game in creative fashion. These have ranged from my detailed openings found in Snatcher and the Myst series to the more unique games such as Ronald McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure and the Mario Education games. However, for the first time in my series, I have hit a game that has no story to speak of. To top it all off, this game is so obscure and so nonsensical, that I am willing to do my best to capture the soul and heart of it. Bare with me folks, because this is my own story for this week's game: No One Can Stop Mr. Domino!

The Roost: The History of Super Smash Brothers

Written by

I apologise for my lack of content lately. This was originally going to be an article about whether or not Smash on 3DS and Wii U were competitively viable. Which is why I took the past few weeks to research and learn more about the competitive scene and what made Brawl so bad for it, and in doing so I realised how little I actually care about competitive Smash and the glitches and bugs people exploit in order to play Melee competitively. So instead I decided to do something I love for the fighting franchise I hold so dear to me. The history of Super Smash Brothers!

The Roost: What is a "Gamer"?

Written by

Hello all and welcome once again to The Roost. Shortly before posting my last article on the site I ran into a certain picture on Facebook. It was a very nice picture that I liked made by a very talented artist. What I didn’t like about it was the captioning someone had put over it. It read “Oh you’re a gamer? Repost and name 28 games other than Minecraft and Angry Birds”. So today on The Roost, we’ll be discussing a question I came up with after seeing this. What exactly is a “gamer”?

The Roost: The History of the Nintendo Entertainment System

Written by

Welcome once again to The Roost. When I was doing my history articles about the console giants I did leave out one major player, Nintendo. Kind of funny considering they are my personal favourite. But it’s time to right the wrong. This is the history of the Famicom, also known as the Nintendo Entertainment System.
