A few months ago I decided I'd play through each and every Zelda game known to man. This is something I should have done as a child, but as a non-console owner I was doomed to the limited perspective of a purely PC upbringing. Anyhow I'm taking a step back to the past for some of the most reputable classics ever made, and I invite you to watch.
One of three Zelda games developed by Capcom for the handheld, Minish Cap has seemingly earned its place as a favorite amongst Zelda fans. Released for North America in 2005, the game received critical acclaim and success due to its "Gorgeous Wind Waker-inspired character design and art." (rpgamer.com) , "Classic Zelda gameplay and flavor" (Gamespot) , and "Some of the highest quality tunes to ever come out of the GBA's little speakers." (Gamespy).
Six years later, how does the game hold up? To be completely honest, I don't know! You see, I've never played Minish Cap. Furthermore I've been relatively unexposed to the Zelda franchise in general. (I've only played the previous handheld games: LA, OoS, and OoA). That's where you come in. I'll begin streaming a fresh play-through of the game, and I invite you to take part. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the nostalgia; Laugh as I try to make sense of a talking hat; and cringe as I attempt to tackle MC's puzzles for the first time.
