Growing up with the SNES meant that I was often in a “renting games” phase with that system, and I have definitely rented some really cool and interesting games through this method. I feel like with renting, you are more inclined to check out a game that you probably wouldn’t just purchase if you saw it at a store, and Spanky’s Quest was definitely a game like that for me. In this game, a monkey named Spanky is trapped in an evil witch’s dungeon of….dangerous fruit enemies…and Spanky has to bounce his way out of dodge and defeat the witch once and for all.

As I said, this was a game I rented a lot as a kid, but I was never able to find the game in stores. Then, after going to a Game Xchange store near where I live, I saw this game in the display case for a mere 10 dollars. Feeling nostalgic, I picked up the game and I’m very glad I did! Because this was going to make for an interesting mini-project to go alongside Ocarina of Time!

Banjo-Tooie

Gruntilda the Witch had met with a very unfortunate end after the events of Banjo-Kazooie, being trapped under a boulder in the ground. However, after two years of being trapped under Banjo and Kaoozie’s victory, Grunty breaks free and is out for revenge, and will do everything necessary to make sure she wins again! Banjo and Kazooie will have to extend to greater heights to beat the witch this time, learning new moves, exploring new areas, and possibly splitting up to achieve greater success.

I really enjoyed the Banjo-Kazooie playthrough from last year and was very much looking forward to starting this LP as soon as possible. It wasn’t until 2014 that I could get this going, but whenever you start a playthrough of a really good Rareware game, expect to hit the ground running and taking it all the way to the end!
