As I'm sure many of us suspected it might, Oracle of Ages has joined its brother Oracle of Seasons on our ranking. There wasn't even a contest this time around; Ages secured almost 60% of the votes cast—no doubt many of them came from previous Seasons-supporters. You can't really blame them for that, as the two are very much sibling games thanks to their similar graphics, mechanics, characters, and of course their interwoven stories. But there are also a lot of differences between the two in terms of themes, items, and powers...

It's Monday, which means that it's time for another Caption Contest. Last week, Ganondorf's evil stare brought about some of the most liked captions to date. With every week that passes by, more people are getting involved and it's very exciting to see. This week's Top 6 images had at least 20 likes each! We didn't get as many text entries this time around, but remember that those are a viable option if you don't have time to edit the image. Of course, we are continuing the trend of featuring the images and text captions that were your favorites. Enjoy!

Today marks the last day we will be giving out Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo codes. Thanks to our fans, we now have some more codes to giveaway today, but we won't be giving them away anymore after today - thus if you want to donate your codes so other fans can have some fun, today is the last day you can do that. You can donate your codes by sending them to nathan@zeldainformer.com. Please do not email me asking for codes - I won't respond and will simply delete your email. All codes are "won" through this giveaway...

Oracles fans, rejoice! At long last, the glorious adventures of Link through the land of Holodrum have found their home in our Ultimate Fan Ranking. Oracle of Seasons was one of Capcom's pair of amazing games for the Game Boy Color, and it is my pleasure to have it finally added to the list. The seasons-changing mechanic was an incredible twist on the series' oft-used time travel elements, providing you with multiple variations of many of the areas of Holodrum. It practically made one world into four! Add to that Subrosia, the characters of the world...

You've done it. You have defeated the final boss and beaten the newest Legend of Zelda title. You sit back, relax, and enjoy the final cutscenes as a reward for solving all of the puzzles and bringing light back to Hyrule. Now what? While some people jump right back in to challenge themselves in Hero Mode and others decide to try to collect everything the second time around, many players won't see as much excitement as the first time through the game. Nothing has really changed except that you may not be able to pick up loose hearts and enemies will do more damage. The solutions...

Yesterday we gave away a bunch of codes for the new Super Smash Bros, for 3DS demo and today we're lucky enough to do it all over again. Thanks to the kind genorosity of our fan base, we have 15 new demo codes to hand out. These codes come at a premium because they have unlimited plays - rumor has it that the demo released on the 19th will have a limited amount of times you can boot it up. As someone who has the demo myself, it's amazing how addicting a 2 minute match can become. So, how can you win yourself one of these codes...

Yesterday saw Spirit Tracks take its spot in our ranking; today its predecessor has sailed into its final port as well! Phantom Hourglass has secured the #12 slot in our continuing quest to determine how our fans rate the games of our beloved series. Fans of The Adventure of Link, the Four Swords, and the Oracle games must be getting pretty frustrated by now, but fear now my friends: just because those games are still in the running for the last few spots doesn't mean that others think them bad. Something just struck a chord with them better than your preferred choices did...

It's safe to say the staff here at Zelda Informer have been rocking out to the new Super Smash Bros. for 3DS demo the last 24 hours. We happen to have a spare code, so what better way to handle that then offer it to one of you! Whether you were a Gold or under member of Club Nintendo or a Platinum member who wasn't fortunate, we're here to at least help one fan get early access to a demo we can all play a week from now. In fact, if any of you have extra codes and similarly would like to offer them up to fans of our site, be our guest! If you'd like to add them to our giveaway, even better! Just email nathan@zeldainformer.com with the details.

Preordering is kind of a mixed bag these days. Sure, there are numerous incentives to the practice, such as bonus content and the firm knowledge that you will be able to get the game on launch day; but there is also a bit of a risk, as you don't know for certain what you're going to get until you already have the game in your hands. There's very little time for rumors and reviews to deter you from preordering a game that ends up bad—the Aliens: Colonial Marines debacle made that abundantly clear...

Some fan works are just simply really neat concepts to marvel at. AbyssWolf from deviantArt decided to recreate many of the characters from Hyrule Warriors in 2D... and I must say he did a fantastic job capturing their style in a new form. Now we really just need someone to try and recreate them as sprites and we'll have a nice peek at what this game could have looked like back in the 80's...
