The genius of what makes Telltale’s Walking Dead series so great is that they can take elements of what makes The Walking Dead so great and make their own story where the game player can make their own choices and decisions and watch as the story around them unravels. After Season 2, the idea to make a new DLC came around, but not for the current story in progress, but rather for a character from the television and graphic novel series; the samurai-sword wielding chick named Michonne.

So with Season 3 around the horizon and nothing horror or survival related to cover for this year’s Halloween month, I figured I would go light this year and hit Season 3 hard next year when every episode is out and I can do it all in one smooth strike. So for this year, I decided to do the Michonne DLC that came out earlier this year, a three episode/part short-story that follows Michonne’s journey in between Issues #126 and #139 of the graphic novel, where she mysteriously disappears from the Rick Grimes group. It was an interesting piece of DLC and I’m glad I got to cover it.

The Pokémon craze was going strong in the late 90s and because of it, Nintendo found it necessary to create as many Pokémon games as possible to capitalize on this phenomenon. One of the games was Pokémon Sadium, a 3D Battler where you can take all of the original 151 Pokemon and battle them against each other. This game also capitalized on the N64 Transfer pack, which allowed you to transfer your Pokémon from the Red, Blue, and Yellow versions of the game and wreck the competition with them on a whole new platform.

This playthrough, much like the game itself (which capitalized on the Pokémon craze of the late 90s), was capitalizing on the success of my Pokémon Blue Let’s Play, taking my main team and bringing them into the world of Pokémon Stadium to take on the toughest opponents of the N64 generation. Although I wouldn’t say this LP was as successful as the Blue LP, it was still a lot of fun to do. I also made a comeback to this game in 2017 when I played through the rest of Round 1 with Rental Pokemon and may come back even later with even more teams for Round 2 rounds!

Dark matter, the same icky stuff from Kirby’s Dream Land 2, has made its return, but this is not something our hero Kirby will be able to stand for. With new abilities and new animal friends, our hero is ready to once again save the day from almost certain doom!

This was the tenth “replay” project I did on my channel, as I had done some videos for the game at a prior date, but due to the poorer quality of the project, I decided to redo the project with a modern spin. The videos for the old project are still available for viewing on my channel, but there is no longer a playlist associated with that version.

Once again, I was dissatisfied with the original rendition of a project I had done and I wanted to do it over again and do it right. This time was Kirby’s Dream Land 3, a game that I originally played “blind” for you guys, but I was unhappy with the result as it gave a very unprofessional balance of “blind playthrough with post-commentary.” With the final result of this project, I will say that I was glad that I redid this project, although I will say that I wasn’t a huge fan of it either; my distate mostly stemming from the fact that I am not a big fan of this game, as I found out.

Pokémon has come a long way since it’s initial creation back in the 90’s, and in the video game world, it all started with this game (along with the Red and Yellow versions of course). Allow me to walk you through the scenario; you are a young kid, you live next to the world’s most popular expert in Pokémon, who has a grandson who is the biggest jerk in the universe, and one fateful day, you are not only given a Pokémon of your own, but also the permission to travel on a grand adventure with you and your Pokémon friends. This notion made kids around the world go crazy for Pokémon, and this was the start of it all!

At this point in time, including games I would later replay, this was the 50th playthrough I did on my channel, and to celebrate this milestone, I wanted to do something big! I had wanted to do something with Pokémon for a very long time, but I didn’t want it to be anything small or “expected.” So for my 50th project, not only did I play my first Pokémon game, but I added the challenge of trying to catch all 150 Pokemon. This was an endeavor that I do not regret in any way, shape or form, as it led to one of my most enjoyable projects, for not just you guys, but also myself. I had started doubting that I would ever have a playthrough as good as The Simpsons: Hit and Run, until I played Pokémon.
