“Donkey Kong” Remastered for the GB in ’94

One of my favorite games on the original Game Boy console was the remake/reimagining of Donkey Kong (sometimes referred to as Donkey Kong ’94) that was put out in 1994. The game, though, is a huge enhancement to the classic formula, taking Mario on a journey across several themed areas and 101 total

Finally Getting the Hero’s Sword & Entering Silver Citadel in Ys 4!

We recently discovered that the sword of the legendary hero Lefance rested somewhere in the Mountain of Flames, so we ventured through the waterfall caves and reached the mountain itself.

“Bram Stoker’s Dracula” – a Sub-Par ‘Castlevania Clone’

As a kid, I remember getting this game on the Super Nintendo and thinking that it would be really fun. I loved the Castlevania series of games, so pretty much anything with Dracula in the title was appealing to me. On a basic level, I felt the game was decent and had

Adol Returns to Esteria — New “Ys IV” Video!

In an effort not to have the game be completely ruined for me, I’ve tried to stay away from full story guides and walkthroughs of this one, and so I have to admit that this session of Ys IV: Mask of the Sun was really cool for me. After curing the wife

“Ys IV” — Into the Ice Caves!!

Last time, Adol got nearly killed in the Castle in Sacred Stormvale, but having recovered from his wounds, we set back out into the Stormvale once more and head north into the Ice Caves. This area features some powerful enemies, but it’s nothing that a bit of grinding can’t solve.

“Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness” – A Fun N64 Adventure in 1080p60!

When Castlevania 64 first came out in January 1999, it was met with some mixed reviews. I remember the commercials on TV being pretty cool back then, but the game had some issues with controls, had quite a few bugs, and some felt that it was an overall rushed project. Then, at
