YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #83

Happy Friday, friends! It is that glorious time of the week where we take a moment to share some of the best o’ the best from our week on YouTube! And what a week it as been!  While we bid adieu to the adventures of the Kongs in Donkey Kong Country Returns, we welcomed them right back in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. We also started up an all-new Let’s Play of a different sort with Vexx, an overlooked title from the Gamecube/PS2 era that’s definitely worth a look now! We took on more classic gaming with a new entry in our “Nostalgic Notions” series. And the Duck was kind enough to share more of her musical talents in covering a lovely tune from Final Fantasy XIII-2.

Hit us up with comments, questions, and queries on Twitter or Facebook, or email us at  And with the holiday season steamrolling its way in, it’s the perfect time to check out our SpreadShirt shop.  From t-shirts to hoodies to more, pick up something nice for yourself and others with VB’s logo. Every time you do, a little goes back into our coffers to help support everything we do online, so thank you!

Programming note: As we’ll all be celebrating Thanksgiving weekend, there won’t be a YouTube Highlights post next Friday, November 23rd. We’ll resume on Friday, November 30th, and we hope to see you then!

With that, set off here for the highlights!


What is Vexx? Well, it’s a platform game with a cool logo that’s got a style all it’s own. It’s also the name of the game’s very determined hero! If you want to know more, you’ll just have to join the Duck of Indeed in this brand new Let’s Play!

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, the Kong family has never looked better, and The Duck also started this new Let’s Play to prove it! See how the Kongs kick things off here in their banana-capturing adventures on the WiiU!


A Musical Interlude

No matter one’s personal thoughts on Final Fantasy XIII-2, good music is good music, and this game has it. Listen in as the Duck shares her piano/vocal cover of “The Last Travel.”

Donkey Kong Country Returns

This past week marked the end of Donkey Kong Country Returns (/sadface). But never fret! The whole Let’s Play has been saved in our DKC playlist, which is ready and waiting for your ears and eyes!


Nostalgic Notions

It’s hard to say exactly where Satan’s Hollow falls within the realm of classic gaming. It’s part Galaga, part Megamania, and something else all it’s own. It’s almost too bad that our “Nostalgic Notions” videos are only fifteen minutes long (almost), because it’s unclear of what that “something else” is.

Thanks for watching, and join us in two weeks for a new video wrap-up!
