Also, sorry for the delay on this one. Last week was pretty busy for me.

It was awesome being the last co-host before the 100th episode! Sorry I got kind of rambling near the end, but I had a lot to say about the last game. Call it the mad fanboy in me going crazy :p

2. The first song for this game actually got cut off early-it's the credits theme, and it does eventually wrap up and stop, then after a minute or so of silence it starts up again.
5. Maybe it's just the jets in the background of his stage, but I've generally felt Guile's theme was a stylistic emulation (Yoko's pretty good at that) of Top Gun.

Regarding the ending to Wario Land, I believe Wario is crying -- those are tears spraying out to the side similar to when you defeat him in Super Mario Land 2.

I used this in an old trivia round, but it's interesting to note that the last time Mario was in a helicopter, he was also the bad guy -- Donkey Kong Jr. (arcade version).

2. I forgot to mention-I swear I once saw a variant of the Wario Land ending where a bat took the statue away instead of Mario. Maybe it was a dream I had, or it could have been a crazy glitch.

I had completely forgotten that the first song of the second game does have an ending. It just goes on a loop for so long that it seems like it won't end

Hah, I'll take it, then!

Although, there was a silent moment when Wetrix appeared. Seriously I had no idea that game even existed!


Which reminds me. Anyone ever played that? I saw gameplay footage right after recording this episode and didn't understand how everything worked.

Really love the music for game 1, Banjo-Tooie.

I knew game 2 had to be Wario somehow, wasn't sure if it was the first one or not. That game has terrific music.

No, I never played game 3, Wetrix, either!

I never got a chance to play game 4, Bugs Bunny Rabbit Rampage, but I sure as heck remember seeing the screenshots in Nintendo Power and really wanting to play it. I didn't realize it turned out so bad though.

Game 5 has great music, as expected from a KH game. 358/2 is definitely a weird name. I liked the first KH on PS2, and I also played Chain of Memories on GBA, but at this point the entire series has expanded too much for me to jump back in, especially since it's not concentrated to only Nintendo platforms.

Not to mention that the Kingdom Hearts franchise has expanded onto nearly four different gaming platforms, with the 3DS hosting the latest entry in the series
