From getting a key ocarina song, to completing Eagle Tower, to entering Turtle Rock, we got a lot done during this Link’s Awakening stream! Along the way, we talk about games we’d take with us to a desert island, the evolution of libraries, do some Wii show and tell, and learn the story of how a new friend found my channel in the a rather unique way!
I get tripped up pretty bad through the Face Shrine, but we manage to make it through eventually! All the while, we talk about the upcoming EGLX game convention, share some of our favourite content creators, and do a little bit of Halloween-themed board game show and tell!
Where’d the start of the dungeon go? After rage quitting the stream, I come back and finish off the next two dungeons in our Link’s Awakening adventure! Along the way, we talk about Heavy Rain and the rise of modern adventure games, Overwatch on Switch, the developers of the Mario and Luigi series going bankrupt, and more!
After the Bottle Grotto, Link gears up with the Pegasus Boots, an Ocarina, and the Angler Key! Now if only I could find the key hole that opens the dungeon…
I know where it is now and it drives me nuts that I couldn’t find it while on stream! Next time! While we venture through Koholint Island, we discuss the weirdness of video game review scores, dreams, and some show & tell with original spray paint art and Amiibo figures!
We begin our next Let’s Play in the mysterious Koholint Island. Can Link, er, “Jettt” wake up the Wind Fish and return to Hyrule? During this live stream, we also discuss our early impressions of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, hopes and dreams for the next Legend of Zelda game, high school eSports teams, and more!

I swear this live stream isn’t sponsored by 7-Eleven and Nintendo! In advance of Link’s Awakening‘s release, we take a quick stop in Hyrule for A Link to the Past! As I fumble my way through Hyrule as “Jettt”, we discuss our picks for most overrated Zelda game, seeing Ellen Page IRL @ the Toronto International Film Festival, using save states as a crutch, and what games we’re hoping Santa leaves under our Christmas tree this year!
When one thinks of Nintendo, the mind tends to gravitate towards their A-list games. Titles that have either garnered a level of success and critical acclaim that puts them at the head of the pack. Mainline Super Mario games easily clear this bar. So do the mainline Zelda games. While it’s one of the newest franchises, the massive success of Splatoon would put it up on that pedestal as well. Where you and I draw the line may vary here and there, but I think we can generally agree on which Nintendo games are at the top and which ones aren’t on that same level.
It’s not necessarily because these games are worse. Maybe they just haven’t found their footing. In spite of being great since the start, it took Fire Emblem decades of time and like a dozen releases before finding a wider audience. Some franchises sell well enough to still get multiple sequels, such as WarioWare or BoxBoy. Others are meant to be niche products, such as Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball. Though Nintendo probably would like for all of their games to sell in the 10+ million range, I get the sense that they’re willing to make and publish B-tier games so long as they make enough of a profit to justify their creation.
In any case, not every game and franchise in Nintendo’s ecosystem is on the same stratosphere. But with a bit more love, maybe some of them could be. Here are a few of my picks for B-tier Nintendo games and franchises that deserve another shot.
A game I remember fondly from my childhood, X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse has kind of slipped off the radar. We give this slept-on X-Men game some love by playing through the opening missions!
