Mega Man defeated Dr. Wily’s Robot Masters once, but somehow this didn’t actually change anything, so he’s called into action once more. Will he defeat 8 more? Will this cycle ever end? Will he ever look cooler than he does in the title screen?
Jackson returns with Morning Series, and this time he’s tackling the beloved Mega Man 2. He’s very excited to play and you should be very excited to watch. Let’s go!
A plumber retires to his brotherly abode and the sun sets on the land. All is well, all is at peace. Until…
A boy of blue, a man of rock, emerges into a wasteland. It is years later, this boy knows not of the plumber and his deeds, buried as is his kingdom under Wily’s metal and machines. And so, he will fight, each and every morning, until the land is free once more.
Welcome back, everybody, to Morning Mega Man!
Welcome to Castlevania: Eternal Requirm, a protracted farewell to the Castlevania series game by game building off of the games played during VaniaMania.
Castlevania: The Adventure is a Game Boy game released in 1989, staring Belmont ancestor Christopher as he fights the forces of darkness. It is a bad game.
VaniaMania, the sister series of Morning Mario, sees M trying to tackle the earliest games in one of their favorite series one continue at a time. How can you stop Dracula when you’re only limited to three lives a day?!
Super Castlevania IV is a Konami game from 1991, for the Super Nintendo. A remake of the original game, Simon Belmont once again suits up for the first time to tackle the forces of darkness and Dracula himself. Now with graphical flourishes and 8-way whipping!
At last, it dawns. The final Mario, let loose from numeric constraints to devour an entire planet of platforming in the prehistoric age. Please, join Jackson for another round of jumping, running and chat in in the epic conclusion to the Morning Mario saga…
Long before Simon Belmont stormed Dracula’s Castle to end evil’s reign, there was another Belmont! This man gathered friends to help him seal away evil once and for all, only to prove that darkness doesn’t end with one hero’s quest. This is his story!
Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse is the third and final Castlavania game released by Konami for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Originally out in Japan in 1989, the version we’re playing is a translation of the Japanese original, keeping intact the custom sound chip-driven soundtrack that made this entry so notable.
After a technologically enforced delay, Morning Mario has returned for all to enjoy once more! After spending many a week in the hell that was Super Mario Bros. 2, Jackson has emerged to tackle the far more approachable Super Mario Bros. 3! It controls like a Mario game, it behaves like a Mario game, it is something to be understood and, eventually, beaten.
But how quickly will it fall? How high will it raise its walls and how far will Jackson have to climb this time? Only as the days go by will we have our answer. Tune in every morning for the triumphant, ongoing return, of the Morning Mario!
In the land of Hyrule, a young and brave adventure sets out on a journey, to understand videogames… Join Jackson as he plays through the popular NES classic, The Legend Of Zelda.
He will die.

Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest is a classic Konami platform action game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1987.
Jackson’s been playing Mario 2, and it’s kicking his ass, so Matthew takes to the tube of you in order to answer one question:
Is Super Mario Bros. 2 hard? Or is Jackson just bad at games?
Okay, two questions.
