Episode 37: How Many Yards Are In a Yeet?

Our boy Link has recovered a lot of equipment in the form of treasure throughout the years. From bombs to arrows to slingshots, his arsenal is a veritable tool belt for adventuring. So this week, we ask: What if you could take only one of Link’s items on a deserted island? Todd stands by the grabby/pointy Hookshot, Andrew builds a block-based economy with the Cane of Somaria, and Kyle fus-ro-dahs coconuts into the horizon with the Deku Leaf.

Episode 17: David Schwimmer’s Furry Paradise

Gorons, Zora, Koroks, little kids with runny noses...if only The Legend of Zelda games could just be Link, Zelda, and Ganon.

SIDEBAR 3: Video Game Creepypastas (Pt. 1)

The idea of creepypastas was a weird mid-00s Internet phenomenon. A product of the message board era, creepypastas are ghost stories posted across a series of forum posts. Naturally, there are a ton of these out there based on video games, so we’re going to share some of our favorites.

WARNING: Some of these stories touch on serious subject matters, such as suicide and child abuse. If you are sensitive to this kind of content, please check out our other episodes.

Episode 3: Ocarina, Schmockarina

This week’s Debate This! attempts to set the Internet on fire with our discussion of what is arguably the most beloved video game: The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. Is it truly a national treasure, or is it all hype? This might be a point of contention, but we can all agree the people who pronounce “Ocarina” with a hard ‘o’ (like joke) are all monsters.
