NintyBeats – Valentine’s Day Special 2021

February 2021’s addition of NintyBeats is yet another opportunity to share some Nintendo music that I truly love. In past versions of these features, I have written about music from some of the first Nintendo games I was introduced to, music that had a romance theme to them, and my favourite music from the Animal Crossing and Metroid series. You might be wondering if there are even more themes that I love, and the answer would be: of course!

Today I want to share an additional four themes that reaffirm my love for video games from Nintendo.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

Long time fan of Nintendo and games in general, I always lean on the quirkier and unique sides of things in particular. It all started when I was lucky enough to get a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow for my tenth birthday and it’s been going strong ever since. I’ve always had a need to get my voice heard and share anything I find interesting with the world.

Our Hopes, Desires, and Dreams for Breath of the Wild 2

Exactly three years ago, Nintendo revolutionised the Zelda franchise with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and merely two years later, they teased fans with a deliciously dark trailer for its sequel. Not much is known, other than the fact that it could possibly even be darker than its predecessor… maybe more so than Majora’s Mask.

The problem with leaving devoted fans in the dark for so long is that, after a while, they’ll start coming up with their own amazing theories for what the next game will entail, most of which is fuelled by their own desires and what little information they may have. That’s just what we are going to do, theorise what we believe Breath of the Wild 2 (or Breath of the Twild) could have in store when it launches… most of which based purely on what we think could be improved.

Sit back and relax with a nice cup of pumpkin soup as we take you through our hopes, desires, and dreams for Breath of the Twild!

Re-enter the Twild!

REVIEW – The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

Twenty-six years ago, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening was released for the Nintendo GameBoy, and five years later in a colourised release for the GameBoy Color. Now, the adventure has been reimagined for a new audience with a release on Nintendo Switch, displayed in a three-dimensional widescreen view, compared to the original game’s square ratio. The game retains its traditional top-down formula, and is an enhanced remake of the original, including features from Link’s Awakening DX. But how does it compare to those classic GameBoy games?
