An inside look at writing the Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD guide

link wind wakerI always love getting the behind-the-scenes look with anything I like and seeing how it all comes together. And, game guides are no different, especially for the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.

In a recent post over on Prima Guides official site, Wind Waker’s original guide writer, Steve Stratton gives us all a little bit of what his experience has been like with the updated version. Stratton described how much more the games visuals popped off the screen making the game feel fresh again. As far as the Wind Waker HD’s mechanics are concerned many of them will remain the same. Stratton does mention a new sail, aptly called the Swift Sail. This sail adds some additional speed to Links boat as well as allowing you to sail regardless of wind direction.

You can learn more about Stratton’s time playing The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD over at Prima’s homepage.

Medieval II: Total War Zelda mod too cool to pass up

hyrule battle

I’ve been seeing this around the internet, but it is way too cool to not share. A new mod for Medieval II: Total War will wake us into the wars fought the world of Hyrule. That’s right, a Legend of Zelda mod, now in its 3.0 version the mod allows to take control of 19 different factions all ranging from several of series different races. So the Zoras, Gorons, Dekus and the Kokiri are available to play as. The most striking aspect however is the mods, very grim trailer. Blood stained battle  fields and dead protagonists aren’t exactly what you think when you think Zelda. The mods campaign does use actual events from the recent Hyrule Historia book. Needless, to say they’re definitely taking from some of the darker moments in Hyrule history. You check it out in the trailer below and if you’re looking to play you can download the mod here.
