Update: My Second Skyward Sword Preview, Zelda 25th Anniversary Goodies and Other Upcoming Posts!

Welcome one and all to this month's Update post. It even surprises me that, bar my post on the launch of the blogs redesign, I haven't written one of these types of posts in quite a while. So, I figured now would be a good time to keep you readers up to date with what's going to be posted on the blog within the next month or so. What's quite possibly most exciting of all though, are the few posts I have planned regarding the much-celebrated 25th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda, my favourite video game series of all time, with me publishing the first of these pieces on the site tomorrow. Not the day after, not any time after that, but tomorrow. This is truly one promise you can actually count on in regards to when I end up posting things on here, mainly because in a few paragraphs' time at the time I'm writing this, it'll be done and dusted and eventually posted within the next 24 hours. This post happens to be nothing other than a rather big preview of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Now, you may be thinking that I already wrote a preview of the game last month (which I must admit was one of my best pieces in a while) but that was before the absolutely huge stream of information, gameplay and screenshots emerged from the interwebs, straight into the brain. You won't have to look forward to this huge new preview much longer, because as I said it'll be up in a matter of hours...
My hype for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is on an unimaginable scale at the moment, as you'll find out in a rather large preview of the game written by yours truly, up tomorrow!
A fair bit later down the line are more exciting 25th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda antics, including a Feature I'm planning on starting in a few days titled simply, My Top Five Personal Favourite Legend of Zelda games. As you may or may not have guessed depending on whether you're a complete imbecile or not, this countdown will be a personal list detailing my five favourite games from what is easily my favourite gaming franchise. Not only am I looking forward to sharing my opinions on the subject of my five favourite games in the Zelda series, I'm also looking forward to finally working on another countdown-type post, because the last one I remember doing was back in January. Freaking January! Anyway, I'm hoping to do more posts like this in future, as they allow me to get more creative with my opinions of a number of aspects of gaming, rather than just a single game when it comes to writing Reviews or Previews for the blog. So, you can expect more countdowns from now on, starting with my aforementioned top five personal favourite Zelda games Feature. Moving swiftly on, the third and final Zelda-related post I'm planning on posting in my own good mystical time will be a review. The game in question I'll be reviewing is none other than The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition, the free DSiWare release that was made available to DSi, DSi XL and 3DS owners a number of weeks ago. This will be my first proper review of a downloadable game, so that's relatively exciting, I guess! As for anything else Zelda-related, who knows whether I have something else planned up my sleeve? Well, I can tell you right now that I actually don't, but some other posts are incoming regardless...
Solatorobo: Red the Hunter is an awesome DS gem that features a humanoid dog riding around on mech, among many other odd spectacles. Check out my review very soon!
Outside of the mystical realm of Legend of Zelda-related posts, I've also got that Professor Layton and the Lost Future Review I promised ages ago incoming. Yes, it's been a while since I said 'it'll be up soon' but I'm genuinely not lying when I say that I'll finally have a review of what I would consider one of the DS's best games up very soon. Speaking of the DS, I'll finally have a review of 3DS title Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D written up and posted here quite soon, possibly popping up this month also. If not, that'll be posted next month at the very latest. Also, another Feature I've had promised for a very long time is my Top 25 No More Heroes Bosses list. I know I've said I'll have this posted soon in pretty much every update since I first revealed this piece, but I genuinely have no doubt in my mind that I'll have finished Part 1 and it'll be up here on the blog for all to see before November ends. The final post I have planned is another review of another DS game, and a great one at that. Solatorobo: Red The Hunter, one of the dying handheld's last hurrahs living alongside the likes Okamiden and Professor Layton and the Last Spectre, is well and truly a brilliant handheld RPG that I'll be sharing my thoughts on very soon. Again, this will most probably be posted by the end of November.

Whew, you'd think I'd have been locked in a room with a computer with every single site but Blogger blocked, with nothing to do but write up some glorious games journalism for the rest of my days on this planet with all these upcoming posts, but alas this is not the case. I get all of this stuff written and posted because I'm insane. On that rather odd segway to finishing up this update post, it's time to end (this particular post). Look forward to the upcoming pieces I'll soon be beaming into your eyeholes through the medium of text and keep it as unreal as technically possible! Bye for now...
