The Link Roundup!

BONUS LINKS!
Some dubsteppy/rappy Legend of Zelda goodness for you!
My favorite Legend of Zelda dubstep remix ever.

First, I feel obligated to tell you that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword comes out in a day and a half.  I know I’ll be picking it up! ^_^  Second, I would like to tell you that this particular weak has been close to my heart.  For a large majority of my formative years, Link was my prominent role model in how I should act and react in life.  I strayed from this a bit in recent years, but I felt in part that this week was a more mature me returning to my roots. Thank you, everyone who reads this, for the chance to do that.

Let’s take a look at what we covered!

Character Breakdown: Link
We talked briefly about Link, his defining characteristics and skills, and laid out our plan for the week!

The Link Workout
We talked about how to build the body of an epic swordsman!
Bonus links:

The Skills of Link
We looked at swordplay, weapons adaptation, and rapid acquisition of new physical skills!
Bonus links:

The Courage of Link
We talked about what it means to be truly courageous, and how to find your own courage in difficult situations.

That’s about it for today!  Next week is going to be a special character breakdown!  We’re going to be doing Dovahkiin, from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  “Wait a second, Dan,” you say, “That makes no sense, Dovahkiin isn’t a specific written character!  You can be anything you want in an Elder Scrolls game.  How are we going to do that?”  To which I simply reply, “Come and see next week!”

Don’t forget to tell your friends, hit up the Facebook page, and check me out on Twitter.  I’ll be back Monday morning with our Dovahkiin breakdown!

Until then, continue to be awesome!

      Well, the majority of Japanese sword styles focus upon two-handed, single-edge swords like the katana and the o-katana. They do have the wakizashi, which was typically one-handed, but they don’t feature much shield play of any kind with it. Link was modeled after a western-style arthurian type hero, which is why I went that route. That said, learning any martial art is better than none, and if japanese swordsmanship is your thing, freaking go for it!
