Rumor Roundup: Play as Link's Daughter? Slim Xbox One?


When the Internet runs out of news, it starts making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

Link With Bow
  • Is the Next Zelda Game About Link's Kid?
    I'm sure the game designers went to great lengths to build a realistic relationship between Link and his child... a dynamic relationship that I will immediately erase and ignore by simply naming my playable character "Link," as I have done in Zelda games, for decades. [iDigitalTimes]

  • Will the Next Left 4 Dead Game be a Prequel?
    "Fear The Left 4 Dead," maybe? [Yibada]

Dick Tracy Watch
  • Is WhatsApp Bringing Video Calling to Its Service?
    Personally, I have never thought, "You know what this phone conversation needs? A live video shot at a terrible upward angle on the person I'm talking to! Plus, more speakerphone-quality sound" But I guess a lot of you like adding a shaky, nausea-inducing element to your phone conversations. (I already find phone conversations to be nauseating. Just text me.) [Blorge]

  • Is Yelp About to Be Bought by Priceline?
    Here is my Yelp review of this acquisition: Yelp is an excellent tool for crowd-sourced reviews of local restaurants and businesses. 1-star (because I thought the font used in the press release was a little weird). [Amigo Bulls]

Slim Xbox One
  • Is a Slimmer Xbox One Coming in 2016?
    Sure, we all make those kinds of resolutions, but then realize that the gym is too hard to get to and cake tastes soooo goooood. [Attack Of The Fanboy]

  • Will the Next Samsung Galaxy Smartphone Include an Iris Scanner?
    I think this is a misstep. My aunt already hates being scanned at the airport, what makes Samsung think she'll want to be scanned by her phone all the time? Oh, my aunt's name is Iris. [Computer World]
