Alice writes: It's confirmed! Nintendo is making a Zelda All-Stars for the GameCube! I even enclosed a screenshot.
Ice: It's not confirmed ... no ... BUT ... with all the news that other sites have been reporting, it's starting to seem likely. I'm still not sure what to think of it all. I really hope that they make a Zelda compilation. In fact, I wrote an editorial a couple years ago called "What Zelda All-Stars would do for the world" ... I suggest you go read it!
Tally writes: i have some hot news, the new zelda game is called zelda universe.
Ice: As far as I know, that has not been confirmed yet. That doesn't really seem like a likely title for the cel-shaded game, but it actually does sound like a good title for the compilation game (if there's going to be one).
Janice writes: how much longer till more zelda news? i want it now. give it to me demon!
Ice: I usually only post official news and
things that can be confirmed ... I don't like posting
rumors or things that sound iffy. Alice sent a
legitimate-looking screenshot for the Zelda All-Stars
game, so I'm posting news about that. But Tally's
information about the title being "Zelda
Universe" just can't be confirmed yet ... so I'm
only posting that in the Letters section.
Fear not, though, E3 is coming in May, and the floodgates of Zelda news will open.

It depends on by you mean by "What's with the
updates". Are there too many of them? Are they too
fan-related? Are they too game-related?
What you probably mean is that instead of updating every day, I've been updating every other day. Well the fact is, I just don't have too much time right now, so I'll be updating every other day or so for awhile instead of every day. That's still 15 updates a month ... more than adequate, right?
Anne writes: Hello Ice. I've got a favor to ask of you. My aunt has just been admitted to the hospital, and we don't know what's wrong with her. I saw John 3:16 on your site and I thought I'd ask you to pray for her. Thank you!
Ice: I most definitely will ... I'm really sorry to hear about that. I hope everything turns out ok.
