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?

A new evil face, by the name of Emperor Terrorin, has released a bunch of bad bombers on the universe and they are now causing havoc across Bomberman’s homeworld. It’s time to revisit some classic locations from the past four Bomberman games and save the universe from this new foe.

Although I wasn’t a huge fan of any of the Super Bomberman games past the 2nd installment, I did want to cover the entire SNES series for you guys and this was the only game in my way of a full completion. This game was an interesting one to go through, mainly due to all of the twists and turns that exist in this game, and not to mention loads and loads of backtracking, but I did manage to finish all of the levels and complete the game fully.

Who says that nothing ever happens in the world of Kirby? Well, this game is and will always be the counter point to that statement, because Kirby Super Star is not one, not two, or hell, even three games. This adventure is a collection of seven games (excluding mini-games) featuring nothing but classic Kirby gameplay in new adventures with some very unique twists.

This was the fourth “replay” project I did on my channel, as I had done some videos for the game at a prior date, but due to the bad (camcorder) quality of the project, with no commentary to boot, I decided to redo the project with a modern spin. The older videos are no longer available on my channel.

I wanted to start 2010 with a bang, and with a game like Kirby Super Star, I knew I couldn’t go wrong. It’s a nice and easy game that has a mass appeal with people, mainly due to how easy it is for any gamer to get into, and has and will always have a place in my heart!
