The early 90’s had a lot of simple games with very basic objectives. Perhaps the most common objective was “get to end without being destroyed.” This objective has become a way of gaming life in a lot of respects, but one question still remains that a lot of old-school PC gamers had the joy of answering…can you save a group of non-stop walking creatures before they plummet off a cliff? That’s where Lemmings comes in.

Lemmings is a game I had the pleasure of playing with my dad a lot when I was younger. We would spend hours in front of his computer trying to figure out how to get all of our Lemmings to safety before they went off the ledge, got burned alive by lava, and various other devious traps and tricks that got in our way. I had a feeling it was time to bring my love of this classic puzzle game to light this year, so here we are with another special weekend project for me.

I am also covering the SNES version of the game, which has a slightly different-looking interface than other versions, and some other modifications made specifically for the SNES version.

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.

Plants vs. Zombies

In a world where Zombie video games are present and numerous, sometimes a quirky game like this can come out and surprise you. This game takes the silly scenario of fighting off zombies with your home-grown plants in perhaps one of the most addictive mobile puzzle games I’ve ever played.

Of all the games I own on Steam, Plants vs. Zombies is probably my all-time favorite. I might have more hours of playtime with Civilization V, but Plants vs. Zombies was the first game I bought on the system and is hands down my favorite. I had wanted to do a playthrough of this game for awhile, and although OCtober 2014 was pretty crazy and eventful, in 2015 I had a chance to come back and do this game properly.

In a world where the dead come back to life and walk around, feasting on the flesh of the living, the only thing a person can do is just try like hell to survive. Join the story of Lee Everett as he meets a lone girl, Clementine, who has been surviving in this terrible world by herself without her parents, and what happens when their lives become intertwined with others in the world of The Walking Dead. Also, what happens in the 400 Days DLC? You will need to watch to find out.

Being a huge fan of The Walking Dead, I found this game quite intriguing, or to be more precise, the thought of experiencing this game with my audiences to be intriguing. After hearing of the numerous accolades that this title has won and received, I knew it was time to take a look at it for my channel and see what awaits us in this masterpiece by Telltale Games.

This is the page for just the first season and the following DLC; 400 Days. if you would like to take a look at the other seasons of this game, check out the following links to their respective pages.
