Pokemon fever was running wild during the Late 90’s and with an anime and video game gaining popularity…naturally a trading card game was needed to further capitalize on it’s domination. And with a new card game, why not have a video game iteration of the card game as well? Sounds like a swell idea to me!

This was a game that I’ve owned for the longest time, but was never able to complete it until recent years (thanks to the encouragement of Puddle Plains HD). I’m happy to show this game in full, because it’s honestly a lot of fun once you have a grasp on how to play it effectively. Let the card memes begin!

After noticing how many games Mario has to his name, Wario decides to have yet another adventure in the Wario Land series. But while piloting his airplane, something goes wrong and Wario crashes near a cave that contains a magical music box. After messing around with it, Wario gets sucked into the world inside the box and must retrieve the five sacred treasures to break free, and nab a bunch of other treasure for himself, of course.

I had gotten a lot of requests to do this game; a surprising amount in fact. Although I would never say a project of mine was bad (if it was, I would never upload it), Wario Land 2 did not make any major waves, so it was interesting to see people request more. I think it’s because Wario Land 3 seems to have a cult following from people who absolutely love the game and claim it’s one of their all-time favorites. When I played it a few months back for RetroAchievements, I wouldn’t say I was “quite” on board with those sentiments, but I do appreciate some of the uniqueness the game tried to put forth. So, why not do a project on it?

After his hard fought victory in the first Wario Land game, it seems our hero has gotten used to the lazy lifestyle of owning a castle and lots of treasure. However, what Wario doesn’t realize is that the same pirates from the first game are still on the move and ready to attack. This quiet morning at Castle Wario will soon be the beginning of another classic chase of Wario and pirates.

I had not intended to do an LP of this game so soon, but when one of my LP ideas didn’t pan-out correctly, I needed another idea pronto and Wario was around to pick up the slack. This wasn’t a game I was super fond of or remembered much of, but it was memorable in its own right and was another project I wanted to attempt in some way.

During a trip at sea, the hero of Hyrule sails into a vicious lightning storm that destroys his boat and forces him to land on the mysterious island of Koholint. Although this island is a haven of interesting people and critters, this place holds a dark secret that may question even your own existence!

This game has always been one of my favorite Zelda titles and I wanted it to be my first Zelda playthrough because it wasn’t as big as the other Zelda games, and it was a game I remember very well from my youth! Although there is very little I remember about doing this playthrough, this game definitely deserves a glance or two, and I hope you enjoy my rendition of “The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX”
