Putting Yourself in the Game, or Not…or Never

Joining with masses, I recently took advantage of PlayStation’s holiday sale in picking up Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition. Outside of the online extras, it was a good deal, and it would finally allow my husband and I to play side-by-side in Los Santos. (Which we’ve been doing, hoo boy, it is ever…

Listmas 2019: The Duck’s Favorite Games to Play Around Christmastime

This week, we’re covering the games we enjoy playing around Christmastime, whether it be alone or with others.  I must confess that I don’t have many games that I would specifically play around Christmas, so I’m instead going to largely focus on games that I have played around Christmas (regardless of how much fun was…

Returning To Reach After 7 Years

Despite all that’s happened over the past several years and all of the incredible games that I’ve played in that time, some part of me still can’t believe that it’s been about seven years since I last booted up Halo: Reach. I’ve always insisted that Halo 3 was my favorite of the series, but I…

Minecraft is Still Incredible!

There are few games that I’m able to come back to year after year and still thoroughly enjoy. Most of them are childhood favorites: Super Mario RPG, Metroid Prime, Majora’s Mask and such. There’s also Minecraft, a game which I never thought I’d like until I tried it. Despite preferring games that offer curated, structured…

Nixing Fallout 76

When I started playing Fallout 76 earlier this year, I didn’t have any real plans with it. I knew that I’d never reach the grandiose levels of some players, but that didn’t matter as much as simply enjoying the wacky, post-apocalyptic world of West Virginia. Truly, Bethesda did create a beautiful gamescape, one that’s really…

Good Night, Arthur Morgan

When I formally hung up my Red Dead Redemption II hat back in February, I had no idea how close I actually was to finishing its main story. Well…at the risk of SPOILERS, which will ABOUND in this post…Arthur Morgan’s main story, that is. I also really had no idea what laid in wait for…

Favorite Nintendo Memories: Duck Edition

Alas, we have come to the final Nintendo-themed topic of the month.  This time, we’re covering, as the title implies, our favorite Nintendo memories.  I’d like to discuss a variety of memories, so I’ll try to keep these as short as my overindulgent self will allow.

Favorite Nintendo Characters: Link and Samus

As was the case with choosing my favorite Nintendo song, choosing my favorite Nintendo character is also a bit of an overwhelming feat.  With no shortage of wonderful and charming characters at my disposal, I finally decided on two characters in particular that I would call my favorite.  The first one, Link, should come as…

Favorite Nintendo Music: Song of Storms

When I tried to decide on my favorite Nintendo song, I came up with a long list of examples spanning various decades and countless games.  There are, in fact, dozens and dozens of songs from Nintendo that I really enjoy, leading me to realize that I might need to look at things from a different…

Favorite Nintendo Game: Majora’s Mask

Our first topic celebrating 130 years of, quite possibly, THE greatest video game company of all time is our favorite Nintendo game.  Nintendo is such an influential part in the world of gaming that I think the majority of gamers simply must have a favorite from their vast gaming library.  If you’ve been following along…
