Twenty-Nine Zelda Memes For The Fanatics

We share a lot of general gaming meme galleries, but why not show some love for a classic? Nintendo's original The Legend of Zelda was first released in 1986, but since then there have been over twenty Zelda releases and a ton of spin-offs. It only makes sense that the internet would churn out a lot of dank memes dedicated to the game and its characters. And we've got a bunch of 'em right here for you.

So it turns out that you can go inside the mirror in Super Mario 64 (if you already knew that, well, good for you). And there are rumors going around that the classic game is hiding even more secrets the fans have yet to discover...

These Rhyming Elf On The Shelf Memes Have Taken Over The Internet

Another week, another shitposting trend. Everyone's favorite Christmas tradition is now part of the latest fad. Starting last week, people on Twitter and Reddit have been creating memes with the text "You've heard of elf on the shelf, now get ready for" accompanied by an image of another rhyming situation. Nintendo characters have been especially popular: think photos like Link in a sink, Waluigi on a squeegee, Princess Peach on a beach. 

Because the format is so simple (and many would argue, stupid) these rhyming memes have spread like wildfire. Here are some of our favorites.

The Latest Nintendo Direct Has Inspired Some Great Smash Brothers Memes

Nintendo nerds went wild yesterday when after the final Super Smash Brothers Ultimate Nintendo Direct went live. The game promised several new characters: the Piranha plant from Super Mario (heavily meme'd), Pokémon's Inciniroar, and Ken from Street Fighter. While these intros received attention, the decision to kill EVERYONE but Kirby in a trailer really got people memeing. Here are some of the choice memes regarding the occasion.

Lisa Simpson presentation meme about how CPR is just like the human version of blowing hard on the video game cartridge when it isn't working right.

While learning how to give CPR can surely save lives, there is some less than optimistic information about how blowing on a game cartridge doesn't help anything really. The rebooting process probably does more to improve game play than the air (and possibly saliva) that you hurled at the electronics at breathy speeds.

How many times have you been on the last level of Super Mario Bros. 3, and you get so excited that you jump up and rip the controller out of the system?

10? 20? 100 times?

Your days of leaving Princess Peach to die at the hands of Bowser are over thanks to this wireless Nintendo NES from 8Bitdo. The Retro Receiver set turns your brand-new NES Classic into the system of your wireless dreams, allowing you the full range of excitement that comes with beating Super Mario Bros. 3.

via Reddit

The set comes with an NES30 controller, a USB charging cable, and bluetooth reciever. Only one per box, though. Also, as Mashable was quick to point out, you can use the receiver for almost any “current-gen wireless controller other than Xbox,” meaning you can use PS4 or Wii controller on this bad boy.

The controller ships on December 16 and costs $39.99 on Amazon.

Nintendo has never shied away from its history — so much so that a crude stereotype is still their beloved mascot. Now they’re taking their nostalgia to the next level with the NES Classic Edition, a tiny version of their groundbreaking 1985 NES console packed with 30 classic games. Available on November 11, the NES Classic will everyone reminiscing about those late nights, chugging soda, and playing video games until the break of day, as well those times in the 1980s when you played the Nintendo Entertainment System for the first time.

via GIPHY

Now that the system is only a few days from release, CNET has an unboxing video of the console and is playing it for the first time. As they note, there’s much to love about this thing, from the alphabetical ordering of the games in the main menu (which “they didn’t have to do”) to the CRT filter, which means you can make this thing look “even worse.” The video will have to itching to try this puppy out for yourself and disregarding any actual responsibilities you have for the next few days.

Check out CNET’s unboxing above and their full review here.

Variety reports that Legendary Entertainment locked down the rights to what could be a massive franchise, subsequent to reported accounts that they were trying to close the deal.

For those that don't remember, here's a quick reminder that, yes, Detective Pikachu, is the hero you deserve:

Language Warning: Yoshi spits more than just Koopa shells. 

Yoshi finally gets a change to switch places with Mario and it becomes pretty clear that Yoshi has some abilities we were probably taking for granted.  If you've ever wondered where all those Yoshi's you've sacrificed go... maybe you don't really want to know. Sometimes you need to sacrifice a Yoshi to get to the next level though, and that's what's really important, right? ...Right?
