I am really excited to announce we are giving away a replica Hylian Shield! This isn't just any old cheap replica, but a high quality hand crafted item that is made to order and takes a few weeks to complete. To give you an idea, this particular shield is worth over $200! You want to enter right? Then what are you waiting for! Head inside.

Zelda has a ton of really great quotes—both in terms of teaching life lessons and sometimes getting us to reflect back on our own choices in life. They can tell stories of heartache or happiness, and often instill a bit of self worth into the player's minds. The problem with these quotes is that it is very hard to find specific quotes from specific games on the internet, because very few places tend to host them all. Enter our new project—one we hope you all will work with us to help complete. Head inside.

So this is something that has been on the backburner for awhile, and Nate has referenced it many times. Well, here you go: People with a Zelda Informer account can now link it with their Disqus account.

Do you have an account with us? Are you logged in? Look at the black bar up top - registration has been open to the public for the past couple weeks, though we haven't talked about it much because this hasn't been ready. Some of you are already on the new forums and already have an account with us. Anyways, commenters, if you're logged in to ZI, you will notice that Disqus has created a new account for you on ZI and logged you into that one instead of your regular Disqus account. If you're new here, then you probably don't need to read much further.

If you've been with us for awhile though, chances are you have a backlog of comments that you want your new profile to show. To do this, you will need to log in to your old Disqus account on Disqus.com, check your settings there to make sure your email matches the one you registered on ZI with, and make sure you've got that email verified. Then follow the instructions for account merging on the Disqus Support portal.

A Zelda Informer account is not necessary, however! You can continue to be a guest to the site and post under your existing Disqus account, or still as a guest through Disqus itself! However, if you want to contribute to our new Wiki and Forums, then we encourage you to go back up top and register to get access to our wider community.

Officially this user system is still in "Open Beta" status, as we're still ironing out bugs. Apologies for the slow development on this, but being the only tech guy here and juggling real-world responsibilities, things tend to take awhile to get done. If any of you are experts with ExpressionEngine and the CodeIgniter framework, contact me directly at dennis@zeldainformer.com, because I'm looking for assistants!

We talked about this amazing Majora's Mask Advent Calander a few weeks ago, and now we are happy to say we've teamed with the creator to give one away! There is no age requirement to enter and the giveaway is open to everyone worldwide. Of course, you don't have to take your chance amongst thousands of entrants—you can simply buy yourself one of these bad boys right here. What are you waiting for, head inside!

Welcome to our official Public Beta for our account system and open user community! We've been slaving away seemingly for a year to get to this point, and we are really one last hurdle away from coming out of beta and having a single unified account system across the entire website, including in our comment section. As with anything however, it is good to live beta test things just in case any bugs crop up, but we are very confident we have reached a point of stability to offer this to all of you. So, what is going on? Head inside.

With the approach of Hyrule Warriors coming up, we've already seen some controversy surrounding the witch, Cia. There have been some complaints about her design and the sexual nature of her appearance. This got me thinking about where sexuality and sensuality belong in the world of Zelda. Join the discussion after the jump.

At E3 2014, Eiji Aonuma explained that the new Zelda title for the Wii U was going to provide a more open and accessible world while rethinking the conventions of puzzle solving in the series. But just how far is too far? Click the jump and join the Daily Debate!

With Eiji Aonuma’s confirmation of a true open world Zelda game, many of us anticipate new additions to the traditional Legend of Zelda formula. While exploration is a key part of the game experience and may evolve from here on out, the combat has always been enjoyable. What are your ideas for Zelda U? Head on in and join the debate!

In a recent interview, Eiji Aonuma stated that Link was merely a vessel, and that the protagonist was the player. Since then, Link's physical appearance has been a common topic of discussion. The concept of Link being a female, a Gerudo, even an entirely different species have made their way into fan discussions, art, and fanfiction.

With these ideas afloat, and Aonuma starting to listen to his fans more, the question is: what will Link look like in future installments? Read on and join the Daily Debate!

Recently, Eiji Aonuma expressed his interest in decreasing the amount of tutorial material in future installments of The Legend of Zelda. While this is certainly a favorable development for those of us well traveled in and over the land of Hyrule, it is important to consider the impact of this focus on newcomers to the series. After all, we were all once newcomers at one time or another.
