YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #81

Hello, folks! We’ve come around to yet another Friday, which means it’s time to offer up some gaming highlights from our  YouTube channel! Even though we closed out our Let’s Play of Luigi’s Mansion this past week, there are still plenty of scares to go around in our “best of” video featuring the game! Catch up with all the 3D platforming fun of Donkey Kong Country Returns. And if you’re “thirsty” for a little old-school gaming, check out the latest in our Nostalgic Notions series, Root Beer Tapper from the compilation  Midway Arcade Treasures. And as a special treat, The Duck recorded an excellent piano rendition of the spook-tacular theme of Mad Monster Mansion from Banjo-Kazooie!

A Musical Interlude

Is it possible that Banjo-Kazooie has some of the best game music…ever? Well, what’s not debatable are The Duck’s awesome piano skills, which she showed off here in this ode to Halloween, courtesy of the great music that accompanies Mad Monster Mansion!

Luigi’s Mansion

It’s time to face off with Bowser in Luigi’s Mansion, which, sadly, marks the end of the game. (Thank you for watching!) But there’s no need to say goodbye to the game just yet, because we have a fun “best of” video featuring some of the Luigi’s most memorable and most spoopy adventures!

Donkey Kong Country Returns

Things are getting interesting for the Kongs in Donkey Kong Country Returns. For one, the giant factory they’re in seems to be perfectly never-ending. And not only that, but it’s extremely dangerous, too! Watch and see how they manage to get through a number of diabolical disasters with grace and charm. (Along with plenty of well-timed running and jumping!)

Nostalgic Notions

Nothing says “classic game” like…root beer? Believe it or not, Root Beer Tapper, our “Nostalgic Notions” feature of the week, proves to be one of the more enjoyable games on the Midway Arcade Treasures compilation. It’s fast-paced and rather frantic, what with so much the root beer flying around all willy-nilly!

Thanks for watching, and join us next week for a new video wrap-up!
