Skyward Sword LogoApologies for such an extended leave of absence and limited updates, but my school schedule has been particularly hectic this summer and is shaping up to be the same if not worse now that the fall semester has begun. However, I will be doing all I can to make time for ZimP in between the classes, homework, job, relationship and friendships / fraternity that I have going at the present time. But enough of all this about me, and back to the topic at hand: Zelda. So, when I last wrote for ZimP, we discussed the recently revealed new title for the next chapter in the series, Skyward Sword. I will elaborate more on this topic and put it into perspective from a broader view to try and trace the possibilities facing the Zelda series as a whole in the coming years. Let us then proceed to where we have left off in the series with its most recent additions.

First we have Twilight Princess, which came out in late 2006 and seemingly continued the story of the so-called “Child Timeline”, one of the two timelines created at the conclusion of Ocarina of Time in 1998. In this story, we learn that Ganondorf’s attempted coup of the Royal Family of Hyrule failed (largely thanks to the Hero of Time’s warning Princess Zelda and her father of Ganondorf’s coming attack at the end of Ocarina of Time), and he was subsequently arrested, put on trial, and sentenced to death at the infamous Arbiter’s Grounds, home to the relic known as the Mirror of Twilight.

Also, if you haven’t already joined our Facebook and Twitter pages, please do so now! Although the former is doing quite well, the latter isn’t; we hope to change that with your help!

Death in The Legend of Zelda — Part 2

Link's DeathWelcome to the second part in our “Death in The Legend of Zelda” mini-series! Let me quickly pick up where I left off last time…

As I pointed out earlier, death has never had a good deal of meaning when it comes to video games, especially in Zelda. In order to make the series (and the industry as a whole) more effective, emotional and powerful, the topic of death needs to be addressed. More so, it needs to be done properly. Again, reiterating what I already covered, developers seem to think that if they increase the amount of blood, gore and violence they add into games, they will have effectively tackled this issue.

Hey, everyone! You’ll be pleased to know that…well…some of us are back. I got back in town a little while ago, but it seems that Alter is nowhere to be found, as are…well…most of the staff. However, Cody and I are back, and we’ll attempt to keep Zelda in my Pocket alive as much as we can.

In other news…well, I bought a website. It’s not really news, but hey, new affiliate, right?

In any case, good to be back, and we hope you’re glad to have us back! We’ll never leave you again, loyal fans…at least, we’ll try.

Boys Playing Video GamesIt seems that the famed “Speed Gamers” are taking this summer to play some Zelda. They’ll be showing nightly streams of Zelda goodness throughout the month of July. Being the caring people that they are, these nightly sessions will benefit the Autism Care and Treatment Today foundation.

However, this is working out a little differently than you might think. The ACT Today! is participating in the Pepsi Refresh Project for their funding. So they’re going to be playing Zelda and telling you to vote for the ACT Today! foundation in the project for the prize of $250,000 worth of funding.

Don’t miss the marathon on their site, and don’t forget to vote! Help procure funding for treating children with autism. Remember: Every vote counts, and this money could help a lot of children.

Until next time, faithful followers!
