Guide To (Mostly) Harmless Hacking | Collecting all the cheat sheets Comic Artist Aaron Diaz Pitches A Gender-swapped ‘Legend of Zelda’ Well, technically not actually gender-swapped since both Link and eternal damsel Zelda are still Link and Zelda. But Diaz has come up with a pitch where Zelda is "an aspiring battle mage" while Link is a sheltered prince unaware of the turmoil in his kingdom in "The Legend of Zelda: Clockwork Empire."

Diaz says he was inspired to create "Clockwork Empire" based on the work of games critic and documentarian Anita Sarkeesian's "Tropes vs. Women." Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. The key point here is that Zelda's the protagonist but Diaz (wisely) didn't necessarily make Link the victim. You can check out Diaz's complete pitch below.

Using Serials, Cracks & Keygens OK, so you’ve downloaded some great software, and you can’t figure out how to get it to work. In general there are only three methods that all ‘Release Groups’ adhere to for getting that illicit piece of software or game to good use: Serial numbers, cracks and key generators. In a proper release, there is always an information file that accompanies the release (an *.NFO file). It is here that information can be found about how to get the software working normally. NFO files .NFO files can be opened with ‘Notepad’ (and Wordpad - or any other text editing software) and make sure to select ‘Word Wrap’ under the FORMAT menu in Notepad. ](/tips/crack1.gif “A look at a ‘proper’ software release .NFO file.”){: rel=”lytebox”} Using Serial Numbers & Registration Codes This is fairly straightforward - just read the *.NFO file for registration information including username, password, registration code (or any/all that need apply).
