Game: Sonic Adventure (DX)
Start Date: November 14th, 2017
End Date: December 29th, 2017
Sonic is back! But this time, he’s making the transition to full 3D gameplay! Originally released on the Dreamcast, Sonic Adventure is perhaps one of the most popular Sonic games. In addition to 3D Sonic gameplay, the game also introduced a variety of different characters and gameplay styles, all under the sole goal to stop Dr. Eggman and a mysterious monster known as Chaos.
I’ve been wanting to get to the Sonic Adventure games for a really long time. I’m not entirely sure why, but I just feel drawn to them in some way. Maybe I just like the style of game it is, or maybe the completionist inside of me finds a thrill of collecting every emblem, but regardless of the reason, this was a long time coming and I’m happy for it to finally be upon us! Even though the main part of this playthrough is over, I am making a comeback to this game, very soon, to obtain and collect every emblem and extra this game has to offer.
Game: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier
Start Date: October 3rd, 2017
End Date: November 9th, 2017
It’s been awhile since we’ve checked in with our favorite girl Clementine, but the world of The Walking Dead is about to get a whole lot bigger, with some locations, some new characters, and a new protagonist in the form of Javier. These two will cross paths and continue this painful journey through the walker apocalypse!
I’ve been wanting to check this out for a very long time. However, this season was unfortunately unfinished during my normal Halloween-fest last year, so the only logical thing to do was play it this year! Really excited to see what this new season will bring!
This is the page for just the third 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)
Game: Super Mario Galaxy 2
Start Date: August 29th, 2017
End Date: December 7th, 2017
Since Mario started his 3D platforming adventures, he tried to stick to a “one 3D platformer per system” type of format. However, after the success of Super Mario Galaxy, it’s no surprise that Nintendo tried to get a sequel in the works, bringing a 2nd Galaxy game into the mix on the Wii console. Bowser is at his tricks again in his takeover of the universe, and it’s up to Mario and lumas to stop him!
After how successful the Galaxy 1 playthrough was, I was looking forward to getting to Galaxy 2. Although I prefer the original installment, there were still plenty of things I liked about this game too, and after not playing it in years, I was very much looking forward to returning to this title.
Game: The Walking Dead
Start Date: September 10th, 2015
End Date: November 12th, 2015
Clementine is back, baby! Although Lee is no longer in the picture, and the rest of her group has completely fallen apart, Clementine finds herself all alone in order to survive. However, her experience with Lee has taught her a lot, so maybe, just maybe, Clem is ready to take on this world.
After how much I enjoyed Season 1, I knew that I had to tackle Season 2 as soon as possible, so I waited until the following year (after all the episodes were released) to do it for 2015’s Halloween! And let me just say, I am very glad I did! I am just continuing to love this series!
This is the page for just the second 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: A New Frontier (Season 3)
Game: Mario Kart Wii
Start Date: July 15th, 2017
End Date: August 20th, 2017
You can’t have a new Nintendo Console without a Mario Kart game, and when Nintendo was making the Wii version of the series, they definitely did not disappoint. Building on the fast-paced, but still arcade-styled racing gameplay, and the online functionality that was introduced in Mario Kart DS; Mario Kart Wii definitely brought the Mario Kart game to a whole new level.
Mario Kart Wii is probably my favorite Mario Kart game. I just have a lot of history with it (especially with the guys and gals of CrystalStarStudio and the Blargg Pit community), and just brought a lot to the table when it released, in the form of time trial leaderboards, solid & accessible online, and just the classic Mario Kart gameplay that always come with a solid Mario Kart title. So safe to say, I was looking forward to coming back to this game for the playthrough. Let’s get ready to race once again!

Every now and then, an indie-game comes out and it gets a pretty big following. However, the game known as Undertale didn’t just get a big following, but an incredibly HUGE following. Who would have thought the journey of a kid falling into a hole filled with monsters would turn into the phenomenon that it did? However, from it’s incredible soundtrack, colorful characters, and unique gameplay style, I don’t find it to be too much of a surprise.
So here is a fun-fact for you guys…even though this project did release on July 10th, 2017, this particular playthrough started back in April of 2016, when I played Undertale for the very first time. Yes, this is a blind playthrough that I recorded a very long time ago that I hadn’t released until now because, for one, I wasn’t quite ready for it, and two, it was a playthrough I really wanted to save for a very specific period of time. With my 10th Year Anniversary on the horizon, I decided that would have been a good of a time as any to finally release the project to the masses. I hope you guys enjoy!
Game: Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge
Start Date: June 20th, 2017
End Date: June 27th, 2017
That Dr. Wily seems content on not keeping the peace, as he is up to his old tricks, but this time on the Game Boy! Capcom decided that with all the Mega Man love the NES was getting, that it made sense to put the series on the Nintendo handheld as well. And let me just tell you…these games are not just simple ports.
So I needed something short to kill some time before my anniversary. Banjo Kazooie: Grunty’s Revenge ran a bit short, so I needed another game about revenge. Enter Mega Man! I had plans to start the Game Boy series at some point this year. This seemed like an appropriate time to, I guess.
Game: Advance Wars: Dual Strike
Start Date: June 19th, 2017
End Date: September 28th, 2017
Advance Wars was a big player on the GBA, especially in terms of turn-based strategy games, and even though franchises were starting to move to the Nintendo DS, that didn’t stop Intelligent Systems from using the well-established “Advance Wars” name. All our favorite COs have returned, with some new faces as well, for a new installment that throws a few new twists, and another screen, to the mix.
Advance Wars has always been a main staple of my channel, but truth be told, I was considering putting this off for a bit, even after getting the 3DS Capture Card. I just wasn’t sure if I was ready to get into ANOTHER Advance Wars game, just because of how time-consuming they can be. However, after thinking about it, and revisiting the game for a afternoon, I realized that I actually had missed the Advance Wars gameplay, and Dual Strike didn’t seem like it would be that big of an investment. Because of that, I decided to go for it!
This project is finished with exception to the extra videos. I still want to finish all of the new War Room maps AND cover some of the other bonus content, but this will be done at a future date and time.
Game: Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty’s Revenge
Start Date: May 29th, 2017
End Date: June 15th, 2017
The dynamic duo has returned, but this is definitely not the latest adventure the classic bear and bird team-up has had. In between their two N64 outings, Gruntilda and her minions were up to no good, even when Grunty was buried under a massive boulder. And now, before the events of Tooie unfold, the colorful cast returns for another mini-adventure on the GBA handheld. It’s the least Rareware could do, you know, considering the next console installment wasn’t going to be on any Nintendo system.
I wanted to do something short before getting into the marathon that will end up being Advance Wars: Dual Strike, and when I was looking through my pile of short projects to do, this was one that caught my eye. It had been awhile since I did Tooie, and who knows when I was going to get my hands on *sigh* Nuts & Bolts. This was a game I found enjoyable, albeit, not as enjoyable as the amazing games that preceded it. Still though, I think it’s worth checking out!
Game: NES Remix
Start Date: May 6th, 2017
End Date: July 8th, 2017
The NES was definitely the system that put home consoles on the map. From Super Mario Bros. to The Legend of Zelda to Punch-Out, so many classics series and classic games debuted on this magnificent platform. During the last generation and the era of the Wii U, Nintendo decided to honor the system by making a game that would revisit the old system and challenge gamers to master all the challenges those games could put out there. This game was called NES Remix!
I discovered this game pretty late into the NES Remix hype. I didn’t get any of the games until Ultimate NES Remix came out for the Nintendo 3DS. However, once I did get around to playing it, I enjoyed every moment of it and thought it would be an interesting playthrough to do for the channel. So here I am today with NES Remix for the Nintendo Wii U!
