The Lylat System is being threatened by an evil scientist by the name of Andross and it’s up to the Cornerian Army, specifically a hired mercenary team known as Star Fox, to take care of the evil monkey and bring peace back to this world.

Covering the Star Fox series has been a long-time coming for my channel, but the reason why it took so long was because of this game right here. Although I absolutely love Star Fox 64, I never grew up with the original game on SNES and it just so happens to be an incredibly difficult game as well. I wanted to make sure I had a good enough grasp on this game before I covered it on my channel, and after enough practice, I finally decided it was time! Let’s finally start the Star Fox series!

Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon

Game: Luigi’s Mansion

You would think after the events of the first Luigi’s Mansion that the brother in green would be a little less frightened by ghosts, but in Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, there is a lot of ghostly activity going around Evershade Valley and Professor E. Gadd has signed him up for another ghoulish gauntlet. Will Luigi be able to stop all of this spooky madness?

It’s been awhile since my last Luigi’s Mansion playthrough. In fact, the 3rd game wasn’t even conceptualized yet during that playthrough. However, since I had recently played the third game and never finished the prior installment, I figured it was time to do so, in addition to also playing it for the channel as well. Let’s hunt some ghosts, collect some gems, and also get as much treasure as possible!

Spyro the Dragon

Nintendo has a lot of mascot characters that have been loved for many years. Sony struck gold with Crash Bandicoot, but in addition to the orange marsupial, there was also a purple dragon that seemed to do very well for himself, and that dragon’s name is Spyro. Let’s join this bubbly dragon in his quest to save the dragon world (amongst other worlds) from evil-doing! First up, let’s stop Gnasty Gnorc!

Although I never had a lot of experience with Crash growing up, I still had a little bit of exposure from my neighbors and other friends. Spyro is a series I never once had any sort of experience with, but I was always interested in seeing what his games were like. Thankfully, much like the Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy, Spyro also got a remastered trilogy in the form of the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, an awesome collection that features remakes of his first 3 games on the Playstation. I knew this was my best chance to experience the series, and in the year 2020, I got my first taste of the Spyro franchise. And I gotta say, I fell in love with these games! So I hope you guys enjoy my 100% playthrough of the very first Spyro the Dragon game!

Mario Golf (N64)

Game: Mario Golf (N64)

Mario has adventuring, racing, role-playing and partying under his belt and he’s even taken a few steps into the wonderful world of sports as well. In fact, Mario’s first golf outing was back on the NES, but it wasn’t until the N64 where Mario got his name alongside the great game of golf in Mario Golf.

With Mario Kart being finished and with Mario Party on the way to its completion, I figured it was time to start working on another Mario sub-series, so I decided it was time to work on the sports games. Mario Golf happens to be my favorite of the Mario sports games, so I figured it was a great place to start. In this playthrough I showcase myself playing several rounds of golf, including beating all the tournaments, match plays, and ring shot challenges, as well as showcasing all the different modes.

Shovel Knight

Game: Shovel Knight
Start Date: May 4th, 2020

Some people say, myself included, that the indie gaming scene has created a lot of timeless games and heroes that have become just as popular as some of the most famous video game characters, and one character that has gone on to tremendous success is the knight in blue armor himself. Yacht Club Games has literally struck gold with this game and has created not only one of the greatest indie titles of all time, but some could argue one of the greatest games of all time in Shovel Knight.

Shovel Knight is quite easily one of the best games of the past decade in my eyes, and I was happy to experience the game on stream when I played it a couple of years ago. Now I want to give this game the full treatment and cover everything this game has to offer, including the various expansions and DLC packs that have released.

Kirby Canvas Curse

Game: Kirby Canvas Curse
Start Date: March 14th, 2020
End Date: April 26th, 2020

When the Nintendo DS released, it’s not a surprise that the pink puffball (among other Nintendo franchise heroes) would try to take advantage of this new technology with a fully touch-controlled game, and Kirby Canvas Curse was the result. An evil sorceress named Drawcia has come to wreak havoc on Kirby’s world and using the magical paintbrush, we must guide Kirby, who is now in ball form, to stop Drawcia once and for all.

Although I had plans to cover another Kirby game at this time, I decided to get caught up with another Kirby spin-off game I had lying around, and admittedly Canvas Curse was a game I hadn’t spent a lot of time with. However, I was curious to see what this game was about and also cover it on my channel as well. In addition to covering the entire story mode, I also showcase all of the extra features of the game, including getting all the medals.

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

Game: Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

If you thought Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga was a wacky game, you haven’t seen nothing yet, as Mario and Luigi must now team-up with their younger selves to take on an enemy army of purple mushroom people from outer space! The shroobs have arrived, and the entire balance of time and space is in danger in the Mushroom Kingdom!

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is a fantastic game, and while I wouldn’t say this is a bad game, Partners in Time is kind of hard for me to have the same enthusiasm with as its predecessor. It’s still a very fun title though and after a year break from the Mario RPG scene, I figured it was time to make a return with this title.

Mega Man III

Dr. Wily is up to his old tricks again (I feel like this is just a carbon-copy statement that will just be at the beginning of every Mega Man LP for this archive, because it’s so freaking true and relevant) as we go back into another one of the Game Boy handheld installments! This time we are looking at the midpoint of the Game Boy series as we take a look at Mega Man III.

This was originally planned for a 2019 project, but since I cut down my upload schedule to a very significant degree for the year, I didn’t have as much time to cover this game in that calendar year, even with how short of a game it is. It will be the first mini-project of 2020 though, and probably not a bad way to start 2020 off either with some familiarity! Let’s take down that evil doctor once again!

Pikmin 3

The planet of Koppai, a very different planet from Hocotate, is facing some major hardships and food shortages. As a result of this, 3 brave explorers must venture out into the galaxy and find some other edible matter to save the lives of their entire planet. However, they have no idea what’s in store when they land on the planet of PNF-404, a planet with much food, but also the location of what’s become to be known to us as…the Pikmin planet! It’s time for Pikmin 3!

Not only was it awhile between Pikmin 2 and Pikmin 3 in terms of their release dates, but it had also been around 6-7 years since I last covered a Pikmin game on my Youtube channel. It was a lot of fun going back to this series, especially since I wasn’t even as prepared or as knowledgeable about this game compared to my adventures in this series, and I think it brought some unique and more chill commentary this time around as well. It was honestly a great project to wrap up 2019 with, and I’m glad I made the call to cover it! There also may be some extra content coming in the coming months/years in the form of the Challenge/Mission Mode, so you can expect to look forward to that as well!

Clementine is back for one last run through the world of The Walking Dead and the zombie apocalypse, and I gotta say, we actually got pretty close to not being able to say that, with the unfortunate circumstances behind Telltale Games for this final season. Let’s just say some real serious stuff went down with Telltale, putting the fate of this game’s conclusion in absolute jeopardy. Thankfully though, Skybound Games stepped up to the plate, were able to get the original game’s staff (mostly) on board, and finish Clementine’s Saga once and for-all! And hey, it looks like she ended up finding AJ after all!

There isn’t much I have to say beyond what I have already said in the previous paragraph, but I will say as an addendum that even I had issues with getting this project started as well. Due to the ownership changes of this product, and some other unique and unfortunate circumstances, I was unable to get all of my save files back to continue with in this last season, but thankfully the game offered an alternative to craft the narrative, at least around the bigger decisions we had made thus far, which allowed me a bit more peace of mind. You guys know I absolutely loved this series as I covered it and I am happy to see that I have seen it through its full completion. There are other Walking Dead games out there, but at this time, I don’t really see myself covering them unless they are of the same vein of this game.

This is the page for just the fourth season. if you would like to take a look at the other seasons of this game, check out the following links to their respective pages.

The Walking Dead (Season 1)
The Walking Dead (Season 2)
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier (Season 3)
