It’s time to enter the world of Zelda yet again, but this time with a two-for-one special! After the success of both Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, Nintendo knew the Zelda train should continue on the Game Boy Color, and with the additional success of Pokemon and their strategy of creating multiple versions of essentially the same gameplay concept, the Oracle games were born!

I’ve been wanting to do Wind Waker for awhile now, but before I officially go on to tackle that beast, I wanted to get the Oracle games out of the way first, just so I can continue the Zelda series in the order of game release. I don’t have the most experience with playing the Oracle games, but I do enjoy the gameplay system set up by Link’s Awakening and thought it would be a good series of games to do in the chill-down period of 2018. I finished Oracle of Seasons a few days prior to the beginning of this LP, and continued straight after with this game, Oracle of Ages, using a Linked Game playthrough!

Sonic Boom! Sonic Boom! Sonic Boom! It’s time to save the world from disaster! Not long after the creation of Sonic the Hedgehog 1, two different teams went off to work on two Sonic games. The first team worked on Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which was already a pretty solid investment. The second team worked on this game, Sonic CD for the Sega CD. While this game was still essentially a Sonic game at heart, it had some pretty interesting twists and some unique mechanics on its own. Because the Sega CD was such a novelty and rare system though, most people didn’t get to play it until it started getting released on modern systems via collection discs or on online platforms like Steam. I think it’s great they decided to do this so this gem from Sega’s history wouldn’t be forgotten.

At the end of Sonic 3D Blast, I mentioned that there was one more Sonic game I wanted to cover before making my trip to the 3D Sonic Realm, and that was this game. The only problem though is that I hadn’t played this game yet and wouldn’t play it until this year when I finally felt it was time. I had a good time playing it my first few practice files and thought it made a pretty good playthrough as well.

The main villain of Super Bomberman 3 is back to once again cause some more mischief, and this time, the entire fabric of time and space is at risk! Although Bomberman is not a timelord, he still knows a thing or two about stopping bad guys, particularly with explosive results!

I had already ventured into the territory of playing games not released in North America with the 3rd installment of the Super Bomberman series, but with SB4, we’re now getting into Japan-exclusive content here! There isn’t a whole lot to say about this game…I don’t feel like it achieved anything too spectacular…really just being another addition to bomb-exploding mayhem that is the Bomberman series. If that’s your thing, step right up and have a “walk through walls” power-up!
