Current Gaming Mood: Mario Golf 64

Last night I decided to install Project 64 just to test out some Nintendo 64 games, starting with Mario Golf 64. In this game, you can add all four golfers that were originally from the Game Boy Color version just by simply using the Transfer Pak and the Mario Golf GBC game paks to transfer them over, but it requires at least two game packs to transfer all 4 characters in the game:

Here’s a screenshot of what the gameplay looks like:

Your selected character is outside the golf course, and your objective is to swing the golf ball all the way to the hole in order to score points whether it’s a Bogey, Birdie, Eagle or a Hole-in-One if you’re extremely lucky.

My favorite original Mario Golf character, Azalea, completing a course with a Birdie.

I’d say this game is really fun to play but difficult to master and great for practice. The graphics in this game looked awesome for back in the day, and what I like about this game is that there are different modes to choose from; like Character Get, Ring Shots, Birdie Shots, etc. πŸ™‚

The next games that I plan on playing are Mario Kart 64 and Super Mario 64.

Race to Iron Man’s Mountain

I decided to continue my quest in Pokemon Diamond this evening by climbing my way to Stark Mountain, where I meet the strongest trainer named Buck. We went on a journey to find the Magma Stone, where a legendary Heatran awaits me after completing the quest. Afterwards I flew over to the Survival Area and went inside an old man’s house, where Buck was waiting for me. Then I came back to Tony Stark’s Mountain where I squared off against Heatran, and finally managed to catch that gigantic volcanic critter. πŸ˜›

I was teaching her new moves that are super-effective against any Grass-types, Ice-types, etc. I decided to name her Krakatoa because it’s named after a legendary volcano located in Indonesia.

Having fun with Jokamel and his Diamonds

I got back into playing some Pokemon Diamond on my DeSmuME this evening, and I have managed to evolve two of the Tyrogue that I caught last night into Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan, which I nicknamed them Bruce and Jackie after the two famous movie actors that were karate experts back then:

I think I’ll plan on doing some Pokemon Pearl while my family and I are on a road trip because I need to build up some progress since it’s been a long time and I’ve only got past the beginning in that game.

I nailed the best ending in Caesars Palace

I’ve been playing around some more Caesars Palace on the VisualBoyAdvance just for the heck of it and I managed to cash out three quarters of a million dollars! I won huge amounts of “money” in Video Poker, Roulette, Blackjack and the Money Wheel:

After “cashing out” $750,000 I got an awesome hot rod that can send my way back to my hamster headquarters. πŸ™‚

What I like about this best ending is the hot rod jingle sound because I find that quite catchy, and I also like the sign that lets me know that I’m leaving Vegas after beating the game:

I just wish the car and the money were real! 😍

Some fun with Caesars Palace for the Game Boy

I decided to try out a new (old) game on my VisualBoyAdvance emulator called Caesars Palace for the original Game Boy. You start off with some “cash” as you play games in the casino such as Slots, Video Poker and Money Wheel:

It’s fun to play but sometimes hard to win. I like playing that is because I remember playing the old Windows version of the game way back in the Windows XP era. Jackpot!
