I animate Fast Facts for a Youtube channel called LORE. I cannot post this episode on my website but it is available for you by clicking the link in the placeholder.

Banjo Kazooie is one of the RARE games that I missed out on when I was a kid. During gradeschool I had a friend who would rave about it but I never saw the appeal of the cartoon bear. I played a few levels and became bored quickly. The bouncing carrots and giant-eyed ants were not enough to keep me enthralled.  I'm sure the adventure gets better from there so I put it on my list of classics I need to play. I haven't gotten around to it, but I look forward to revisiting the game.

A few years later after Banjo Kazooie I was introduced to Conker's Bad Fur Day. I visited a friends house while he was playing the multiplayer and I was captivated by what I saw. Squirrel immigrants trying to cross a border guarded by nazi-teddy bears on a giant turret. Squirrel soldiers in tanks! Giant singing poop! The voice overs and raunchyness brought me in, a drunk squirrel releiving itself on crazy fire goblins had me sold.

My girlfriend brought an N64 with some working controllers from home so I'll need to hunt down a copy of Banjo Kazooie and Conker's Bad Fur Day sometime soon. I'll let you know how that goes!

See ya!
