I think Breath of the Wild would be pretty awesome for this. Have someone who is new to Zelda checking in with a Zelda/adventure game enthusiast and bring like an Adventurer's Journal or notes at least about what they encountered. Could do an episode for the Great Plateau, then 4 more for each Divine Beast, another for sidequests maybe, then wrap it up with the final boss and endgame.

RE: Which would be a good game for a show like "Brandon plays Pokemon"?
RE: [Official] What are you playing?
Rocking Sekiro, pretty much almost finished (I think). Gunning for the platinum trophy has been a good uphill climb the whole way through. Really enjoying the music and environments more than any other Soulsborne game. All around a total pleasure.
That being said, I've been pushing through so mang difficult games recently (Bloodborne and Hollow Knight earlier this month) that I'm feeling burnt out on getting stomped. Thinking of moving into something super chill like Captain Toad or maybe a visual novel.
Happy gaming to everybody else!
RE: Tackle the backlog - 12 in 12 2019
Alright, this is exactly what I need to keep on trucking through the year.
- Bloodborne (done March 7)
- Hollow Knight (done March 21)
- Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
- Yakuza 0
- Final Fantasy VI
- Shenmue 1 & 2 (both as one entry)
- Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
- Pokemon White 2
- Captain Toad Treasure Treacker
- Xenoblade Chronicles
- Xenosaga Episode 3
- Super Metroid
So many of these games have been on my backlog for years. Even if I don't get to finish anything else on my shelf this year, I gotta do this dirty dozen. Best of luck to everyone else!
RE: Welcome to the Easy Allies Forums!
Been a long time since I participated in anything like a forum, but I've gotta get in for the Easy Allies.
Last year I downloaded a few of the podcast episodes to listen while driving to a campsite and have been hooked ever since.
I'm an avid gamer that mainly focuses on engaging single player titles, but I enjoy some multiplayer now and then.
Some of my favorite games are games by Hidetaka Miyazaki (Soulsborne/Sekiro), Metroid games, Metal Gear series, and Resident Evil series. Looking forward to getting to know many of you.
RE: Mysterious Monsters - Official Discussion Thread
This is easily my favorite feature on Easy Allies currently. I cannot wait for the next episode! Thank you to everyone involved getting Mysterious Monsters rolling.
Ian kills me as the wizard. Way to embrace the role!
RE: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (PS4/XBO/PC)
One tip I've got that I've really put into play for people struggling with bosses is approach it almost like catching a Pokemon (weird, I know). Playing defensively, while opportunely damaging the enemy HP until its at least at 50% or so before switching to an offensive battle worked wonders for me. The posture damage increases so much past that point, that you should have no problem making it to the deathblow.
RE: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (PS4/XBO/PC)
Since I'm nearing the end (I think), thought I would chime in some general thoughts. Regarding the difficulty, I think it's just right. Sekiro has challenged me every step of the way, but never suffocated me with a feeling of insurmountable dread.
Honestly, it reminded me of my time playing Metal Gear Rising. I crawled my way through in that game until making it to the "come back when you can actually parry" Wolf boss and couldn't proceed for a full day. Eventually, something clicked and I was finally able to develop parrying skills. By the end of MGR, I really felt accomplished and skilled.
One minor pet peeve is the reused bosses and minibosses. This isn't really a new thing for FromSoft games, but it seemed kinda ridiculous this time around. On average, the bosses are okay to pretty good. Only two of them so far have felt truly special.
I was very concerned about the Dragonrot mechanic, but it actually isnt much of a big deal. Just spend your money/buy coin purses as well as reaching the next skill point level before studying a boss and you are good just dying without reviving until you have practiced a fight enough to employ the revives.
The environments and exploration are the real stars of the show for me. Discovering some awesome treasure or a hidden area always get me pumped. I absolutely love the Prosthetic Tools even though I barely use them. My last thing to say is that the Japanese voice cast really nailed it. I will try out the English audio for my New Game Plus playthrough, but I'm really happy FromSoft made Japanese the default audio option.
