10-year Partnership Anniversary Special!

This August marks 10 years since I’ve had a subscriber button (10.5 years since I signed my partnership agreement)!  I truly can’t believe it has been this long, and I am grateful beyond words for all the support I have received over this time.  Thank you all so much!

I always like to try to do something fun and unique for these occasions, but I also wanted to do something that is uniquely related to my channel’s identity.  For this year, I’ve come up with three ideas, which will be done in sequence over the course of the week (and likely a bit beyond):

  1. 7th Saga “no items” playthrough. 7th Saga is one of my favorite games and longtime staple of the channel. I’ve prepared something a bit special this time, and intend to play through the entire game without using items. There are some pretty dire implications of this restriction, and I’ve outlined all the details on this page.
  2. Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts: Pokemon Challenge.  Nuts & Bolts is a game beyond explanation, and is extremely well-suited for self-inflicted punishment.  My previous few challenges of this game were outrageously fun, and are pretty iconic for this channel. This will not live up to the lunacy of the Choo-Choo Challenge, but we are long overdue for some Banjo and it should be a lot of fun.
  3. Ghosts ‘n Goblins arcade, on original cabinet.  I bought my GnG arcade cabinet back in 2010, but it was too cumbersome to move with, so I haven’t been able to actually use it for the past 10 or so years.  I just now got it moved into my house, re-mounted the board, and fixed up the control panel, and everything looks and sounds great!  This stream will likely be with a webcam pointed at the screen because the connector for the direct capture won’t be here for 10 more days or so, but I might hold off on it until it arrives.

I’m not doing any official fundraiser or bid wars or anything.  As always, tips, bits, subs, etc are very much appreciated but are by no means required!  All I ask is that you enjoy yourself.  ^_^


I have several short obligations during the week, and some house stuff that needs to be done, so the start times might be a bit inconsistent and the streams might be a bit shorter than they normally would be for something like this.  I appreciate your flexibility with this inconsistency.  😀

I am not going to attempt to make a day-by-day schedule.  I have no idea how long this 7th Saga playthrough will take.  I am budgeting 3 days for it, but it may take far longer.  I also have no idea how long the Nuts & Bolts playthrough will take or if I will do 100%, and if I will finish the whole playthrough before I move on to GnG.  I might just do those two playthroughs and then do GnG on the following week when the direct video adapter arrives.  I’ll have a better sense of the timing as I get started on these, and will at the very least know what the following day’s content will be.

Here’s a guess at what the schedule could end up looking like.
