You've probably seen/heard my "One Minute of Music from every NES game" video, but now here's the next one... "One Minute of Music from every SNES game (US & Canada)"!

Excluding Super Copa (a reskin of Tony Meola's Sidekicks Soccer which apparently came out in Mexico, not just South America and some Central/Latin America countries as I previously thought), there are exactly 720 games that were released for the Super NES in North America, and 720 minutes (12 hours) happens to be the current maximum length of a YouTube video.  That was one of the reasons I felt it was too fitting to not make, and this easily is my longest video ever.

I'd actually been working on this on and off since the NES one, usually as a way to keep myself from burning out when I needed to step away from other video projects.  It's been sitting on my hard drive, completed for a while, and figured I might as well get this out there.  It's hard to know how many actual hours it took, but there was a LOT of cleaning up of box art.  Most are originally from The Cover Project, but hundreds of those still needed a few obvious scratches to be removed and for the black background to be made solidly black.  This may be the cleanest Super NES box art on the 'net!

This and the NES music video are great to have running in the background while you do your work.  ;)  Hope you enjoy this!

Here's a review of "NES Endings Compendium: Vol. 1: 1985-89".
If that sounds familiar, it's an upgraded version of a book I'd reviewed earlier, that one only went up to 1988.  1989 was a big year for the NES, so this book is considerably bigger!

Apologies that this took so long.  It's a video I had promised to do, but I had some setbacks, the Japan trip from almost eleven months ago really took a toll on my intended video releases.  I'm glad it's done, and I think it's just as good as any other review video I've done.

I am considering reapplying for monetization soon... so any views you can get on this would certainly be appreciated!

Yes, I skipped Kyononis Shrine in The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom.  What's up with that?

EDIT... see three posts later to learn the truth of this video...

Finally, here is a minute of music (and clean box art/title screenshots) from all of the remaining SNES games (Mexico, PAL regions, and special competition cartridges).  Enjoy!

You've probably seen earlier on that I did an almost-12-hour one for the NES ones and the exactly-12-hour Super NES (Part 1: US & Canada) earlier.

I don't know if I will ever be able to do Game Boy, Genesis, and Nintendo 64 ones, as I alluded to here...

I was about to share that I just made a YouTube Short for "Every #SNES Game EVER!" but realized that on these forums I didn't even share "Every #NES Game EVER!" which I made over a month ago.  So, here are both of them!  HIGH-SPEED IMAGERY, so be warned if you are sensitive about that.  Every box and title shot, too.

Happy 1st birthday to The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom! Last month, I posted a strange video where it looks like I didn't know how to side hop.  But anyone who knows me would KNOW I know how to play Zelda games!  Still, did I fool anyone?

Today, on ToTK's birthday, I am finally revealing that that vid is actually a shot-by-shot parody of TeZoKi's video of negaoryx's infamous Breath Of The Wild moment, when she found the tutorial shrine (at 95 hours) and learned how to side hop after having already beat three out of the four Divine Beasts!  Yes, I deliberately avoided the Kyononis Shrine in my actual playthrough of Tears Of The Kingdom so that I could recreate this moment (at 295 hours) after I'd cleared four out of five temples.  (By that point I had also done everything else possible in the game, including finding all the Koroks!)

A year later, have you beaten Tears Of The Kingdom?

My brother and I finally got around to opening the Zelda and Kirby Otakudama mystery bags that we got at the last Edmonton Expo several months ago. $45 (Canadian) each! Do you think what we got was worth it?

I hope this video does well.  I think it's a lot easier to "get", and I've seen in the past that people are really interested in what's in bags/boxes like these that they sell at expos/conventions.

Strangely, I couldn't find anything online about this "Otakudama" brand that's seen on these bags, so hopefully just by me mentioning "Otakudama", people will see this video if they do a Google search for it!

John Riggs makes video game recommendation videos on YouTube, and his latest one is about import games. He sometimes has guest reviewers on these episodes. I am included in this one with my look at the Japan-only PlayStation game, Super Adventure Rockman, a movie adventure game starring Mega Man! See my review of it at 3:20.

Four friends and I took on Mãi Mãi - Viet Street Kitchen's "Spicy BBH Challenge" which has us eating a large bowl of spicy bún bò huế (Vietnamese noodle soup, with Carolina Reapers and other peppers) within half an hour, for a chance at glory by being on their "Wall Of Flame" and to help out Edmonton's Food Bank.

I know this is a little different than my usual videos, but maybe that will give my channel some broader appeal?  (Or at least get me the slight push in watch time which is what I need to hopefully, finally get monetized?)
