"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...

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 "BUY S...

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 ori...

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.

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.

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 Past...

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...
