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.

All great legends start somewhere. This legendary series started on the NES back in 1986 and 1987. Link sets forth to collect the 8 triforce shards and stop the evil Ganon from destroying Hyrule.

The NES Marathon has started and the first game I chose was The Legend of Zelda. It’s a game I’m….not really that familiar with, much like all of the games on this NES console. However, it is a very important game to the series because this jump started a beloved series. I knew I had to cover this at some point, so let this be the first game of the marathon!

I will also be doing a playthrough of Second Quest on my stream channel that will get uploaded to this playlist at some point.

With the King of Hyrule in a vegetative state and several female descendants of the seven wisemen gone missing, all eyes turn to the evil wizard Agahnim. Princess Zelda feels that she is next in line for the wizard’s nasty plot and reaches out for a hero to save her. That hero just happens to be Link, and before he knows it, he starts out on his quest to save Hyrule!

I had not done a lot of Zelda on my channel, but I assure you that I am a huge Zelda fan, just as much as the other Nintendo series. I guess I just prefer Mario and Kirby to a much larger extent, but that is just my own, honest opinion. We all started somewhere though with the Zelda series, and this game was the game I started with! I hope you guys enjoy my romp through this classic SNES title.

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”
