Star Fox Adventures and Some Deep Thoughts

I often feel as if video games double as a means to time travel.  This is true of many things, like the hard strawberry candies that never fail to transport me back to my childhood, when my parents and I used to visit my great grandmother.  Memories are a powerful thing that can make the…

Hello Neighbor is Getting a Prequel

Some months back, the full version of a little indie game called Hello Neighbor was released.  Though I had high hopes due to how interesting the Alpha and Beta versions of the game were, I was ultimately disappointed in the final game because it failed to successfully answer the questions I had going in (namely…

Comparing Crash Bandicoot 1-3

After many long hours of platforming peril, both delightful and frustrating, the Duck has finally completed the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.  And almost with 100%, too.  While I was able to get 100% in the first two games (minus the relics), I was not able to get the final gem in the third game. …

The Duck Finally Plays Crash Bandicoot

(Note: I know I’ve already written posts about playing Crash Bandicoot…I simply forgot to publish this until now….)  The Duck’s mission to experience all the classic games I possibly can has been mighty successful these past several years.  I’ve played such beloved SNES titles as Super Metroid, EarthBound, and Super Mario RPG.  I’ve even caught…

Crash Bandicoot 3: Top 3 Favorite Levels

After having completed the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on the PlayStation 4, I can easily count myself a new fan of the series.  And out of these three delightful platformers, I would have to say that the third game is my favorite, with its fun variety of stages and less aggravating difficulty level (on…

It’s Official…King. K Rool is in SSB!

I’ll admit that, in recent times, I haven’t really bothered to keep up with gaming news.  Life’s taken up too much of my focus, plus I haven’t felt the need to spend a large quantity of cash on the Nintendo Switch when it only possesses one game I actually feel like playing (Super Mario Odyssey,…

Challenge Mode: The Test of Fear

Video games have certain moments that you could say I live for.  Those Unforgettable moments.  The moments when the music Resonates with you so well that it takes the game to the next level.  And then there are those that remind us that video games can be more than just a fun romp through a…

Crash Bandicoot 2: Top 4 Toughest Levels

I’ve made it through the second Crash Bandicoot game on the N. Sane Trilogy (and published the episodes on Youtube…).  And seeing as this was yet another challenging platformer, it seemed fitting to create another list of the game’s most aggravating levels.  As difficult as the first game was, I think getting 100% in Crash…

Day 19: A Game Setting You Wished You Lived In

At this point, my 30-day video game topic challenge has taken me far beyond 30 days, but I’m still plodding along.  Today’s topic asks which game setting I would like to live in.  I have gone through multiple possibilities in my head, but the one that stuck was the Rayman universe.  Ever since I first…

Crash Bandicoot: Top 5 Toughest Levels

One of many series to which the Duck was quite a latecomer was Crash Bandicoot.  Being very determined to catch up on as many classic series as possible, I was able to finally play this delightful PS1 platformer thanks to the release of the N. Sane Trilogy on the PlayStation 4 (click here to watch…
