Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

Add Prancing Violin Playing Zelda Cutie to the list of things that make this Nerd Bastard smile that crocked little smile. YouTube user DevinSuperTramp posted this whimsical medley of Zelda music and dancing Zelda the violin playing damsel.

My friend Lindsey arranged this medley based off the Nintendo game Zelda!
Our friend Dan Reyes- Cario then recorded it for us.
And then Stephen Anderson did the sweet epic background orchestration.
Stephen composes most of the music for my videos! You can check out his rad website in the link below!

Kudos to the whole team that put this together, they captured the soul of the Zelda games whimsical nature and light hearted-ness through times of trouble.

 

Zelda Meets Back To The Future

Continuity is a bitch, especially in video games.

But the award for most convoluted and confusing video game timeline goes to …. Link from The Legend of Zelda series of games!

Not only does every game (seemingly) re-write the past/present/future of the franchise, but sometimes they do not even star the same version of the character! Sometimes it is the same (Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask), but other games he’s younger (like in Windwaker) or older, like in Twilight Princess.

The people who create the games must have some sort of an identity crisis in order to feel the need to change it up all the time. But honestly Nintendo, is it that hard to make games that can go in at least a semi-straight line and don’t involve multiple timelines?

I just hope the upcoming game, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword fits in all nice and pretty somewhere.

But, what if you could (kind of) make sense of all the games with a poorly done YouTube video using the only man who could possibly make sense of it all: Doc Brown from the Back To The Future movies?

Well, you’re in luck! Because we have just that very thing for you … wow, you must be psychic!

Check out the video embedded below, and let us know what you think. Does it make sense or just make everything more complicated?

SongofHealing

The music of Zelda always brings back such wonderful memories of the games.

Even at their worst, most Zelda games are far better than most other games. In fact, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is still ranked number 1 on my list of all-time favorite videogames.

The sequel, Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask was not as good, but was still highly enjoyable.

In the sequel, one of the most played songs was the “Song of Healing,” and YouTube user Sp0ntanius decided to showcase his love of the song (as well as his talent for playing wine glasses) in the very cool video below.

The Legend of Zelda series of video games are one of the most popular video game franchises out there, and one of the most recognizable features of these games (other than the characters and weapons) is the music.

Anyone who has played the games (especially the Nintendo 64 classic Ocarina of Time, which had the greatest music of any video game I’ve ever played) can probably at least hum both the Zelda and Hyrule field themes. The music is epic, and as you can see in the video below, those who like it, like it alot.

And what could make the music even better? If it was played by an orchestra, of course!

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of the greatest video games ever made, and is still my pick for my all-time favorite video game I have ever played. No matter how many times I play it, it is still amazing.

One of the most memorable parts of the game are the songs, which play an integral part in immersing you in the Zelda universe. And plus, some of them are very, very catchy and will end up stuck in your head for days.

YouTube user Mat Graham has remastered the Song of Storms into an extremely catchy metal melody that 100 per cent will get stuck in your head. It’s stuck in mine right now.

n64_ZeldaOOT_Link_Playing_OcarinaBeing blind would be awful as in I wouldn’t be able to play my video games, watch anime and wrestling, or even look at internet porn…I mean YouTube videos. Anyways, Jordan Verner, is a blind person who asked for help on YouTube ever since he started playing the N64 classic, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. He got a taste of an awesome game but unfortunately cannot finish the game with his disability. Then, Roy Williams and three other gamers decided to help Jordan out by writing a move by move script to help him finish the game. The project took two years but Jordan was finally able to beat the game. As Jordan’s school motto is “The impossible is only the untried,” which is true here, showing that through dedication, even a blind person can get through the dreadful Water Temple. Check out the vid after the break, as it has William’s local news reporting on the matter. (more…)
