Growing up with the SNES meant that I was often in a “renting games” phase with that system, and I have definitely rented some really cool and interesting games through this method. I feel like with renting, you are more inclined to check out a game that you probably wouldn’t just purchase if you saw it at a store, and Spanky’s Quest was definitely a game like that for me. In this game, a monkey named Spanky is trapped in an evil witch’s dungeon of….dangerous fruit enemies…and Spanky has to bounce his way out of dodge and defeat the witch once and for all.

As I said, this was a game I rented a lot as a kid, but I was never able to find the game in stores. Then, after going to a Game Xchange store near where I live, I saw this game in the display case for a mere 10 dollars. Feeling nostalgic, I picked up the game and I’m very glad I did! Because this was going to make for an interesting mini-project to go alongside Ocarina of Time!

Nintendo really wanted its newest handheld, the DS, to sell back in 2004. So what did they decide to do for one of their launch games? Remake Super Mario 64, give it some content, and show off the functionality of the DS’s dual screens with touch capabilities. So join, not only Mario, but also Yoshi, Luigi, and Wario on this classic revisitation of a world we once knew all too well.

So I was on the fence about doing a project for this game for awhile. I recognized it for being an absolutely new game with new content, but since I had done Super Mario 64 before, and since I was currently lacking a DS capture device, I figured I was going to give it a pass and move on straight to Galaxy. However, one of my good friends (who has requested to remain Anonymous), decided that he wanted to make the decision of whether or not I was going to LP the game, for me, by sending his own device for the sole purpose of Let’s Playing this game on my channel. I was honored by his gesture, it was a perfect time to do this game because I was in need of another project to do, and at the end of the day, it worked perfectly! So without further ado, let’s step into the world of Super Mario 64 again for….Super Mario 64 DS!
