The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild --> The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Firma
Let's pick up where the Allies left off. On the EZA podcast there was this game:
You must rename the given games with totally new titles (try to realistically rename them the best you can, not jokingly --- although admittedly the Allies couldn't always achieve that!).
One renamed game per post. (You can make as many posts as you like though!)
Rate other people's proposed names using the +1 system (in addition to directly commenting on them when you want to). You can rate as many as you want.
Let's say that if your own suggestion gets to +5, then you can add an additional game into the circulation. This doesn't "close the book" on the game that got the +5 though, it's still available for people to suggest and vote upon (although the ability to garner a +5 suggestion is probably going to decline naturally over time anyway).
Let's Play Shadowgate episode 3! Expect musings on torch music being unwanted, the downside of not finding every intended clue, acquiring new verbs, offering a small hint for the NES version, and wondering what makes a statue 'dwarven'.

I'm removing Chrono Trigger since I can easily say that I like FF6 a fair bit better.
I might be the only one who was lamenting from the start that there wouldn't be a mix of guns and lightsabers (like the Jedi Knight series), but after watching the recent videos I noticed I'm more interested in what this turned into than what I was hoping for.
Let's Play Shadowgate episode 2! Expect musings on which items are pointless, finding a very trusty shield, stealing treasure from dragons and tombs, meeting two kinds of spectral creatures, and getting an amazingly sincere description of a broom.
Valfaris is a sweet looking, heavy metal themed run 'n gun that released this month. I hadn't even heard of it until today, but it is from the same team as Slain: Back From Hell.
@dipset I'm also very interested in solving this problem, especially for the old 3d consoles where emulation technology seems like it will never be completely reliable. I haven't found a good solution either. Not sure if I want to take my old tube TV from my parents house or invest in an upscaler like the OSSC ("Open Source Scan Converter"). I guess either way what I want will cost me something, isn't that the way it always is...
Tread into Shadowgate, the Living Castle - Let's Play the Shadowgate Remake!
Welcome to Shadowgate, one of the finest fantasy-themed point and click adventure games I've played. Shadowgate 2014 is a remake of a much older version from the Apple computer days. The NES port was pretty popular, and is part of a series of adventure games by ICOM Simulations known as the "MacVenture" series
The game revels in a certain fantasy aesthetic where the world is constructed more as a hodgepodge of fantasy tropes and setpieces just thrown together into one location. Most of these setpieces are traps or creatures that want to kill you, and exploring Shadowgate Castle has the vibe of setting off a wizard's home security system. Like most adventure games, the narration will be playful about the situations and foolishness you get yourself into.
How much of a remake is it? The graphics and music are absolutely phenomenal for this type of game, it has a modern UI, and the gameplay has been redesigned. This last point is important because it offers very much a "fresh game" to solve even though the overall flow matches the original. So items, rooms, and the general castle layout mostly return, but with enough differences, new additions, and new solutions so that the old elements often serve more as "references" and less as "repeats". While the puzzles are generally different, beating the original would give you significant carryover knowledge into the remake. Think more along the lines of "Resident Evil Remake", rather than a faithful remake that just modernizes the audio and visuals.
I'll be trying to upload this series briskly -- every other day -- if free time permits. This is faster than most forum LPs, but spreading out the effort just doesn't work for me. You can watch at your own pace of course, I'll still be reading the comments. Plus, this way if you really enjoy the LP you should be able to watch a 15 minute chunk per day without outpacing the uploads.
