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!

Mario Kart always seems to be a staple of every Nintendo system, and Mario Kart DS was the answer for Nintendo’s newest (at the time) DS handheld. Although the two screens and touch screen functionality were kind of the main draw for the handheld, Mario Kart DS was a game that didn’t really try to use those features as a crutch for its design. The second screen was used as a map, which was kind of nice, but for the most part, Nintendo just tried to push the same solid racing gameplay that had been present in all the games prior. In addition to that, the DS system also incorporated Nintendo’s newest Wifi Connection which allowed people to finally play this multiplayer beast of a series online, which was a huge draw for the game and system during its initial run. Although it’s my least favorite game of Mario Kart’s modern era, I can’t deny or ignore the impact that this game had on the rest of the series.

I was going back and forth for what game I wanted to cover first now that I had my new 3DS Capture card; Mario Kart DS or Mario Party DS. I knew there was a bigger desire for Mario Party DS, but I felt more comfortable with this as my first project with the new capture card, so I decided to go for it and hold off on Mario Party DS for one final delay (it is coming though). This project will feature several videos of Grand Prix Mode, the Mission Mode, and some other modes I feel like covering as well.
