Meanwhile... Back in the 80's... The Legend of Zelda

This week we take trip down memory lane and talk about all we remember about that little rascal, Link, and his adventures to save a princess. We also veer off and can't help compare the Zelda series of games to another 8-bit, mustachioed hero.

What are some of your best Zelda memories?
