Favorite Zelda Moments: The Death Sword Appears

Earlier today I posted an editorial over on Zelda Dungeon in place of the mailbag (which I was unable to do because I’m sick), another one of my Favorite Zelda Moments editorials, this time a Halloween-relevant one about the Death Sword’s appearance in Twilight Princess. This has always been one of my favorite Zelda moments, so I thought I’d discuss it in time for Halloween since it’s so spooky. You can read it here.

I’ve also always love the Death Sword’s music. So honestly, you should just consider this a Song Spotlight, too. I’m being a cheapskate today. It’s okay, I hate me too.

So what did you think of the Death Sword? Did you think it was scary, or that its appearance had good atmosphere? Tell me in the comments!

The Benefits of Nighttime in Zelda

I wrote an editorial over on Zelda Dungeon about night in the Zelda series. Mainly it was inspired by how poorly I felt the nighttime mechanics were handled in Skyward Sword, which I thought was particularly unfortunate because the visuals for it were so beautiful in that game. Some other games, like Twilight Princess, also did some fancier things with night, and in this editorial I just go over my thoughts on it briefly. You can read it here.

What did you think of nighttime in Zelda, and in Skyward Sword? Tell me in the comments!
