For those who didn't hear at the end of our last episode on Final Fantasy 6: our next game will be: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past!
Like Final Fantasy 6, Link to the Past was originally on SNES. A remake was made for Game Boy Advance, that you can play on a GBA or Nintendo DS. Finally, it's available on the Virtual Console online store on a Nintendo 3DS, Wii, or Wii U.
As with Final Fantasy 6, you can listen and play along, or simply listen. This is game is shorter than FF6, so, especially if you've never played Link to the Past, consider giving it a try!
The first episode will be on Monday 5/22, and we will play from the start of the game through the Eastern Palace.
