YouTube Highlights: Weekly Edition #56

It is with a notch less than pomp and circumstance (because both at full strength would be too much) that we welcome you back for yet another round of YouTube Highlights! Oh yes, it’s that time of the week where we look back on what happened over on our YouTube channel over the course of…

Fan Or Not?

If there’s one concept that’s affected gaming more than any other, it would have to be fandom. Video games live and die by their fans, as do their publishers and developers. It’s why new IP are considered risky while resources are poured hand over fist into sequel after sequel. What is a fan though? Is…

Majora’s Scariest Story

You know, I was originally going to end this month of Zelda-ween with a look at the Happy Mask Salesman from Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask.

They creep us out and perhaps even inspire a little shiver, but can we really call them frightening? I…

Resonance: Elegy of Emptiness

It’s not all that unusual for a piece of game music to affect someone. Really, that’s kind of what this whole “Resonance” series is about: the songs that affect us and stay with us for one reason or another. What I do think is unusual is for a piece of video game music to affect…

Resonance: Final Hours

There is one song that has always stuck with me, even though the first time I heard it was 15 years ago.  This is the music that plays during the final hours in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, during the night of the third and final day, when the moon is lowest in the…

[REVISITED] What Does Nostalgia Do To Your Games?

Image By Flickr User: Richard ‘Tenspeed’ Heaven Nostalgia is a subject that often comes up when talking about video games and it’s something that’s been on my mind lately. It certainly has a power over games, but what exactly does it do to them? I’ve touched on the subject before and think the discussion is…
