Promotional Consideration is a weekly feature about the Nintendo DS advertisements you usually flip past, change the channel on, or just tune out. Though we featured a number of Zelda commercials earlier this week, like Vanessa Williams, we've saved the best for last. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Aw...

"Still surprised to catch you, every time. Still surprised to catch you, by and by and by and by." "Butterfly Nets," Bishop Allen's carefree track from the band's May EP, might not share the same blood as The Legend of Zelda series, but if you stand the two side-by-side, comparing their congruent...

Having covered our favorite fan-made Link artwork two days ago, we're sharing with you our most beloved official pieces today. These illustrations from the Official Nintendo Player's Guide books that supplemented A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening have always been, without a doubt, our favorit...

The "Enemy Bait" item was required in three of The Legend of Zelda's dungeons, to get past hungry Goriyas like this one. As an aside, that's one of the least intuitive puzzles we can think of, and we have no idea how we ever got through it the first time. But the Enemy Bait was sold (by the "BU...

The deviantart page for user DekuPyro is littered with all sorts of homemade Zelda memorabilia. From painted keychains to the coin you see to your right, DekuPyro is quite the Zelda fan. And that's the kind of thing we love to see. Well, it also helps that this is Zelda Week. Be sure to hit up past ...

The horrific animated cutscenes from the CD-I Zelda games are hilarious enough without any help-- honestly, the only way we can even begin to accept that people made these, and then watched them and decided they were fit for release is if we believe that they did it as a joke. We've embedded the or...

It's been a long week filled with Zeldalicious fun, but it has to end sometime. While the themed coverage will continue through Sunday, this is the last of our week long edition of Show and Tell. We're as sad as you are, and we didn't even get through everyone's submissions! If you didn't see your s...

Okay, that's it. We're done. From now on, gamer weddings just don't matter. They're empty, soulless shells next to this. Sure, Tetris cakes are awesome, and Zelda ice sculptures are cool as, well, ice, but this one takes the cake -- literally. This Wind Waker-inspired wedding cake is a work of art...

Since earlier this week, we've been arguing about the best of all possible Zeldas, but it's time to discuss the worst. From the votes (or lack thereof), we might guess that Four Swords Adventures might take the prize, but we guess that the real answer may be more complex than that. So tell us -- whi...

In the midst of our celebration of all things Zelda, we asked you to choose, once and for all, your favorites from the franchise (up to, but not including Phantom Hourglass). It was a hard fight, but as many might have guessed, Ocarina of Time snatched the console title away from A Link to the Pas...

So long as we're spending a whole week assailing you with links about Link, we thought we'd share with you one of the best fan-made art pieces we've seen for the green-capped adventurer. Jainai Jeffries created this amazing realistic envisioning of Link last year, posing him on a tree porcupined w...

It's time to get away from the body in our special week-long presentation of Show and Tell, and get into something fun. Being a dedicated Zelda fan isn't just about clothes and tattoos -- it's about what you do with the rest of your existence. This means toys, electronics, and even art can hold up...

You might think if a level designer at Blizzard opts for a gamer wedding, the main decorative theme might be something like Night Elves and Gnomes, but that's not how Cory Stockton rolls. No, he and his new wife Christi went for something a little more classic: Nintendo. Clearly, we approve of thi...

The Legend of Zelda: The Light of Courage is Nintendo fandom gone horribly, horribly right. It's a tale of adventure, lazy eyes and mean-spirited pranks against an IGN forum member. The Light of Courage got its start when someone convinced an IGN poster named JoeCracker that animation company DIC w...

The Broadcast Satellaview was a peripheral for the Super Famicom that allowed Japanese gamers to download games, sort of like the Sega Channel or, well, the Virtual Console. Pretty much the only Satellaview games ever mentioned are in the Zelda series, and amount to a few oddball remakes/adaptatio...

Are you already neck-deep in Phantom Hourglass, or are you stuck waiting for the weekend -- or even next week! -- like some folks we know? If you're among the lucky folks already playing through Link's latest adventure, how far are you, and what do you think so far? Is it the single greatest thing s...

While you're boating around in Phantom Hourglass, it's always nice to look back at other seafaring moments, even if the sailing in The Wind Waker wasn't really your thing. You know what makes everything better, though? Lego. This awesome Wind Waker diorama isn't new, but it's still imminently suit...

The DS Life is a weekly feature in which we scour the known world for narrative images of Nintendo's handheld and handheld gamers. If you have a photo and a story to match it with, send both to thedslife at dsfanboy dot com. Sometimes, everything just seems to be going your way. There isn't a sing...

Maybe we can't all ink our love for Zelda into our flesh, like the folks in yesterday's edition (which has been updated; don't miss the new tats!), but we can wear it in various ways. T-shirts are popular, of course, but we've seen jewelry and more in the past. There is no limit to creativity when i...

For obvious reasons, today's daily question is aimed squarely at those of you who still have physical copies of Zelda cartridges. I have a bunch of Zelda games on cartridge myself, and have since The Legend of Zelda first went up for sale. But the copy of NES Zelda I currently have is not my first ...
