It’s time to drive-in to the most recent installment of Mario Kart; Mario Kart 8 on the Nintendo Wii U & Nintendo Switch. In addition to various mechanics throughout other games, Mario Kart 8 brings us anti-gravity fun along with some brand new characters (some of which who have not appeared in a Mario game), some sweet new tracks, a brand new engine class, and several other interesting features. I will be playing the Switch version for this playthrough (Mario Kart 8: Deluxe), but may have an extra video in relation to the Wii U version.

Mario Kart 8 has a lot of meaning to me. At this point, it is probably my most favorite Mario Kart game, and the Mario Kart game I would recommend most to people, just because of how easily accessible the game is and because the game is still very relevant with a very active online community. This game is also what introduced me to a lot of my friends in the Puddle Plains HD community, so it’s very special to me for that reason as well. I look forward to, in the future, having pretty regular sessions of this game via the game’s “Tournament” mode, so this project could be expecting quite a bit of content…at least until the next Mario Kart game comes out, whenever that might be.

It’s time to set sail for the next Zelda game; this one on the Nintendo Gamecube! Although it was quite a graphical departure from what a lot of people were expecting, many Zelda fans opened their hearts to this colorful and cute installment of the Zelda series. A great evil is brewing across the Great Sea and a lone boy on the island of Outset is gearing up to take it on. Is this boy the legendary hero? We’ll have to wait and see.

Although I was technically hoping to get Zelda 1’s second quest taken care of before this game, I knew for sure that this summer was going to be the time to finally take on Wind Waker, so I decided to move it a little ahead in the schedule. There’s not much to say about this game aside from the fact that it’s amazing! The world is amazing, the sailing is amazing, the combat system is amazing…this game is quite the legendary adventure, I must say, and I look forward to showing you guys every moment!

After the events of Donkey Kong Country 3, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong and Baron K. Roolenstein decided to have a little fun (for some reason) and look for the legendary Lost World. They left Dixie Kong behind though, forcing her and Kiddy Kong to go on their own adventure and show up their bigger, more seasoned adventurers. It’s time for another Game Boy installment of the Donkey Kong Land series!

I was looking forward to this playthrough just on the sole basis of being able to finish up the remaining Donkey Kong Land game, but it turns out, this project ended up being a lot of fun. Who would have known Donkey Kong Land III could be the pinnacle of amazing game design? I would have never guessed!
