Mario Kart: Super Circuit

Mario Kart had never been on handheld before, and with the rising popularity of the Game Boy Advance, a handheld installment was definitely not a shot in the dark. Although it would lack some of the more desirable features of a Mario Kart game, being on the Game Boy Advance and all, it still provided the basics of what makes Mario Kart…well…Mario Kart!

I had enjoyed going through the Mario Kart games in order, but that meant after Mario Kart 64, I would need to start taking on Super Circuit next. Although it is my least favorite game of the entire series, I can’t say too much negative about this game, because it was very limited on what it could accomplish as a Mario Kart game. The Game Boy Advance was cool and all, but it just couldn’t provide the core excellent multiplayer that we’ve come to love from the series.

Mario Kart 64

Mario and his friends sure love to have a good race, and after the success of Super Mario Kart on the SNES, Nintendo was happy to keep the engines going on their next console. Mario Kart 64 brought some new and really innovative tracks and reworked a classic arcade racer into a multiplayer fun-fest. I hope you guys are ready to race, because lakitu is about to wave that checkered flag.

Although Super Mario Kart was my entrance into the Mario Kart series, I feel like this title is what completely sealed myself into loving it. Because of this, how could I not do it? Now if you will excuse me, I think Princess Peach just threw a red shell at me and now I need to knock her off the Wario Stadium jump.

Kirby’s Dream Course

What happens when you take Kirby and put him in a game about mini-golf? You get Kirby’s Dream Course! Kirby takes golf in a very unique way though, turning himself into the ball and using a variety of power-ups to move further along the course. This is the type of game where clever thinking, and sometimes, even a little bit of risk, can yield some very great rewards, so go for broke and get a great score!

This was another project that was impacted in a very unfortunate way, by the crash of my computer at the time, only being able to record on one day every two weeks, but regardless of this fact, I was still able to enjoy a very classic game from my childhood, doing something that I had honestly never done before the project…unlocking and mastering the bonus content that the game has to offer!

This playlist also features a bonus inclusion of ShadowMarioXLI and I competing against each other, and playing all the stages of the Multiplayer mode. This was featured on the CrystalStarStudio channel, but was treated as part of the project.
