Looks like a good list.  I wonder what the secret 25 are.  In any case I'll save actively trying achievements for my 2nd run through.

Come take a look as VidyaShorts streams Deus Ex: Human Revolution for your viewing pleasure. We're an experienced streaming community with two Deus Ex fanatic streamers; each set to show off a different augmented edition of Human Revolution, just for you. Come witness where our uniquely different play-styles take us, as we pull all the stops to entertain the crowd and stream a truly excellent game.

RaggaFragga as a stealthy, smooth talking, refrigerator thief. Teleri (myself) is a dense but determined asshole who has vowed to kill every possible NPC.

Streams are finished! Thanks for watching.

Good evening.  Tonight I'm tackling Dark Hyrule Castle and 100% completion of in tonight's stream of The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap.  This is part of an ongoing effort to complete each and every Zelda game known to man.

How will I fare against the puzzles and enemies of the final dungeon? Will I be able to save Zelda before those damn three rings? Will Vaati destroy me? Find out in the final chapter of AEIOU's adventure!

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.     

         

Final stream time TBA 

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.

Wow, looks like everyone is going for stealth.  Hey Eidos, maybe you should have just made a stealth game!
 
I for one enjoy my options, and hope to adapt based on what seems realistic/safest/ethical.   Deus Ex isn't about seeing if you can get to the end without killing anybody, it's about making decisions that you can feel comfortable with given the situation.  Also, it's about finding the most bad ass way of getting from point A to point B.

For me:  TOR, unless it turns out not to be so good.   In which case, GW2 is there to pick up the pieces.

@Jams:  
 
I don't know how committed you are to experience what each of these reputable games has to offer, but there isn't a Zelda fan out there that will tell you to avoid any of them.  (Except of course, the CDi Zelda games... but let's just pretend they never existed.)  Most people I've spoken to would recommend the big one to play is playing OoT.    
 
By the way, I've also committed to going back and playing the Zelda games.  In fact I've decided that I'm going to play through each and every one of them.

Link's Awakening --->  Oracle of Seasons ---> Oracle of Ages --->  Now working on Minish Cap.   
 
I plan to complete each and every Zelda game known to man.   I'm a bit late, but I was raised on the PC and am only now making a conscious effort to play the console classics.  I'm admittedly a bit nervous about making the jump to 3D!

@Joshwana@RaikohBlade
  
I disagree with both of you.  The game has a lot to do with the quality of the stream, and part of what make Zelda games good stream material (imho as one streamer, of course) is the ability to interpret things in certain ways.  For one thing, there's no voice-over dialogue, which allows for some vocal creativity.  Also, there's room for speculation about the strange recurring characters and various implied events.  This kind of thing allows for putting a unique "stamp" on the game.  As far as puzzles go, some might find it fun to help think through a puzzle along with the streamer.  Some might not though.  In any case Joshwana makes a good point about the community also being a big factor.  At VidyaShorts, sometimes all that matters is that we all love video games and we're all pals.
