The new "article" was just posted under the "Home" header at the top of the screen; it's not necessarily an article in the traditional sense, but I have been wanting to write something like it for a few years now. (The article on the Gerudo Desert is still a work in progress. The region and culture are ancient and complex, so it may take a while.)
The new piece might seem a little pedantic and authoritarian in parts, but I think the message is one that's worth considering. It's called The Zelda Ethos, and explores two things:
1) What does it mean to play Zelda well?
2) What habits and patterns of mind do we need to play Zelda successfully?
As always, I'd welcome your feedback. I'm sure I missed something. Happy reading.
The universe of The Legend of Zelda is replete with multifarious architectural oddities, beautiful and resonating structures, and ineffably-mysterious temples hidden in the remote corners of the world. It is my hope to explore said places, shedding light upon some of their salient features, and fulfilling the goals laid out by the introduction, the main goal of which is to help people understand and appreciate the unspoken, yet deeply-felt, allure of these locations and structures.
