      Alright, since Starfox has close ties to another underrated series, F-Zero, might as well do this next. Introducing my F-Zero timeline!
      Ok, yeah it is kind of obvious since some fans have splurged GP Legend into the main timeline, but hear me out:
      So, much like the chronology, it starts the hyper futuristic race we know as F-Zero (200 years after the fatal F-MAX) that took place in 2560, the same race when Sterling LaVaughn first raced in. Then, there was the unfortunate event known as the Horrific Accident, aka the Grand Finale, in which Deathborn caused the lethal crash at the last course of the King League, Fire Field.
      The Grand Prix was suspended for seven years until, thanks to the persuasion from Super Arrow, the Federation Congress decided to resume the sport with the F-Zero X competition in 2567.
      Unlike the main chronology, there was a pilot that seemed to have returned from the dead, Tinsel Steelus. Aside from introducing the Duelists, Yugi Muto and Joey Wheeler, to the upcoming event (F-Zero GX) several years later, probably in 2573. It was thanks to Falcon that spread her wings and started to race again since the original Grand Prix 13 years prior and that incident in White Land.
      So how does it relate to the Duelists? On the Yugioh side, Tinsel and her Comet rescued Yugi, Joey, Tristan, and Tea from the Battle City island that was about to self-destruct thanks to Kaiba. Then, there were the events in GX. And Yugi, Yami, and Joey has only made cameos later on.
      Now, GP Legend would be in an alternate continuity, as would Climax, but both the GBA game and the anime were released at the same time in Japan in 2003, and then the US a year later. So, it's only fair to include both in the same timeframe. Here's the lowdown: In my OC's timeline, they both take place one year after the events of GX. In 2574, the scenarios of the anime went first, but only the first two Laps when Rick was awakened from the 150-year cold sleep and was just starting out; however, Lucy wasn't included in the game's Story Mode, so I theorized that the game must've taken place before the end of the second Lap prior to Lucy Liberty and Tinsel joining the Task Force. The anime resumed from there, and of course there were also the events from "Ending it All (F-Zero crossover)," which made some of the circumstances altered in the Japanese/English dubs. They just skewed into a different tangent because of the unexpected cancellation of the English dubs.
      So...Yugioh takes place in the nefarious saga, The Wake of the Dragons. Before those events, the Duelists, and their famous Monsters, had made some cameos. It all started on the fic, Cold as Ice, based on Lap 7 of the anime; this introduced Tinsel having the Duel Disk and let her use the Kuriboh and Multiply Cards against the Bloody Chain! Since then, it made some cameos, like Tinsel calling for outside help as Dark Million was rising the bar, starting with Zoda and his invasion in the deserted Alcatrand prison. Then, in the Fake Star race, Yami and Joey got involved in the emergency when Pico attached speed-sensitive bombs to the machines and they destroyed the blimp crashing toward him! A week later, Zoda deactivated the shields protecting the Outer Space course from meteors, and Tinsel used low-level Monsters to defend the pilots.
      The Duelists and Monsters hadn't appeared for awhile on account of Dartz and the Great Leviathan, but they returned by the late chapters in Ending it All. Then they got invited for Tinsel and Rick's wedding six month after they said goodbye to Yami and Kaiba.
      The first Resident Evil movie made a cameo in Man of Destiny, Rick's first bounty-hunting mission.
      The Guardians of the Galaxy also made an appearance in To Be Married and Loved since their bounty-hunting mission with Rick and Tinsel.
      And finally, the latest Grand Prix, F-Zero Maximum Velocity, which occurs in 2585 (25 years after the original; I think having it a quarter century after GX was a mistake as it'll take us back to the settings from the original). The future's yet to come involving the all-new pilots, machines, and courses, though it's unknown as to how the competition had reduced from the intense, advanced rules to that from the original competition. Perhaps the Federation were having a restart. The future is hard to see.
      Feel free to make your own timeline for the F-Zero series, and let's hope it lives on.
      Such stories in the timeline include:
      Falcon's Followers The Samurai Returns Cold as Ice Rick's Lament Vulnerability of a Hero Ryu's Immigration A Trilogy of Tension Tanaka in Trouble Merry Christmas, Rick! Tinsel's Trial Tinsel's Interview with Mr. Zero Ending it All Man of Destiny An Action Point for Valentine's The Power of the Falcon PJ, the Empyrean Colonist The Bostonian Comes Home To Be Married and Loved A Tragic Day

      Contrary to popular belief, Mike West did not reprise his role as Fox McCloud in the English dub of the anime short film Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins. I personally would not blame you, as for some reason Nintendo failed to credit any voice actors in the short itself, but this is likely for localisation reasons. In any case, the honour of voicing Fox McCloud in the English dub actually goes to Joe Zieja.
      Zieja is best known as the author of the upcoming "Epic Failure" trilogy (in which the first book Mechanical Failure is now available) rather than his voice work, although his role as Fox McCloud in the short is apparently his most prominent thus far. UK-based news outlet Nintendo Life recently interviewed Zieja to learn more about his experience getting the role and learn a little more about the man himself. You can read the full interview here.

      If you are interested in further information, check out Joe Zieja's official website. Enjoy!

      Despite the fact we are all anticipating the official anime short Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins later today, by sheer chance a French-based, start-up animation director duo called "Channy and Kimberly" have just uploaded their very first animation on YouTube today, which happen to be a fan animation of a potential Star Fox Zero anime opening made in homage to the 1980s style. Check out the fan animation below - no regrets!
       

      Subscribe to the duo if you like as well, as they really need more people to follow their brand new YouTube channel!

      Yo guys.  I've just started my FMP (Final Major Project) at college.  I need to gather a large number of names from Games and Anime Characters.  This is where you guys come in.  I want you to tell me about your favorite characters, which games they are from and why you like them. Thank you.
