There's been loads of events in support of Child's Play charity recently, and now Zelda Dungeon's throwing their hat into the ring; on August 7th, they're going to marathon through every Zelda game ever made in five days. This includes the CD-I games, so it's a good thing the money's going to help the children. Throughout the marathon they'll have a series of challenges for the fanbase based around donations and social media, so it's definitely something to keep an eye on that weekend. If you don't know who Child's Play is, it's “a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 70 hospitals worldwide.”

4k Televisions are essentially the next edition of HD TV's that will likely become mainstream in the next decade. They are priced way too high right now to be viable in the open market, but like anything the tech behind it will eventually become affordable and then the saturation will begin as soon as television programs begin to show the clear difference between 4k and 1080p. Then again, we could be so far removed from that day that it's not worth talking about. Zelda's founder, Shigeru Miyamoto, just doesn't think 4k resolution can add anything to the series:
When it comes to games, I don’t see the need for Zelda in 4K...
Of course, that doesn't mean he doesn't feel any game won't work in 4k. He goes on to say that Pikmin would actually be fantastic in such a resolution. Do you think 4k will ever become a standard in our homes?
