This game has been a long-time coming, for a number of reasons. Not only have I wanted this Let’s Play to happen for many years now, but it also speaks a lot for American gamers back in the early 2000s when Super Smash Bros. Melee came out and when Marth and Roy were finally introduced to North American gamers who had no idea where they came from. This brought Fire Emblem into the limelight, and a few years later, Intelligent Systems finally graced International audiences with the first worldwide released game of the series. This adventure follows the heroes of Eliwood, Hector and Lyn on their quest to save their land from an oncoming evil, in turn-based strategy game goodness!

As I said before, I can’t even begin to tell you guys how long I’ve been waiting to do this game. This is my favorite Fire Emblem game of all-time, one of my favorite video games of all-time, and after looking at the list of games I had not done for the channel yet, I knew that I couldn’t go another year without having this game covered. Because of this, I finally decided it was time to jump into action and get this beast of a project beginning! Let’s save Elibe everyone!

There’s not much to say when sequels of games like these come out. Developers liked the formula they came up with, so they decide to make a sequel with some more content and new idea (although, more towards the former in this case). Nintendo has some more NES games to make challenges with and we are going to see what the 2nd collection of this is going to bring out!

I wasn’t quite ready for more Mario Kart or Wario Ware, or god forbid, another Mario Party game, so a return to NES Remix seemed to be on the table this time! We got some great games in this collection and I’m not just saying that because Kirby’s Adventure is a main feature. We also have my favorite NES game of all-time, Super Mario Bros. 3! We have my favorite block-dropping puzzle game of all time, Dr. Mario. And we also have…Wario’s Woods? Interesting…

After the success of Donkey Kong Country 2, it’s no surprise that Rare wanted to keep capitalizing on their successful franchise by putting variations of the game on the Game Boy…despite how strange Donkey Kong Land was by itself. For this game however, Rare spent a little more time emulating Donkey Kong Country 2, down to the very same level names and gimmicks that made the game known. How does this hold up compared to it’s console counterpart?

I needed another short project to bridge the gap between my first two big projects of the year, so once again, I decided to take a trip back to the Game Boy. I told you this was going to be the year of handhelds. I was definitely looking forward to this one though, just because it was the best of the DKL trilogy, from what I remember of it. However…is that really saying much? Let’s find out…
