Singing with Animals in Fe

Despite my stubborn love of physical games over digital, I have started to amass a small collection of digital games on the Switch (“amass” meaning about five games, which accounts for about 50% of my entire Switch collection, so…it’s all relative, I suppose).  This all started when I was perusing the Switch eShop out of…

Ranking Cuphead Bosses: Easiest to Hardest

Since Cuphead‘s release in 2017, the game has become known for two major things, its 1930’s art style and high difficulty.  Now that I, too, have suffered through the many challenging bosses of Cuphead, I thought it would be fun to rank all 19 from easiest to the ones that walloped me the most thoroughly. …

Cuphead: A Swell Time

When Cuphead was originally released in 2017, people just wouldn’t stop talking about it.  And based on the screenshots I had seen, the game looked cool enough with its 1930’s style graphics.  Nevertheless, I was never actually tempted to try it myself, but rather decided to watch a playthrough of the game on YouTube.  And…

Resonance: Greenpath

Music is a vital part of any gaming experience, as vital as the characters, story, and gameplay.  For me, and assuredly so many others, a game’s soundtrack can act as an emotional link between the player and the game, making a fictional world feel so much more real and alive.  While plenty of games are…

Hollow Knight Was an Unforgettable Experience

Having limited money to spend on games, the two main times when my gaming library is allowed to grow is my birthday and Christmas.  And so, by the time these special dates arrive, I have a selection of games already on my wish list.  I’ve been able to largely keep up with my gaming wants…

The Duck’s Top 10 Games of the Decade!

The last decade has seen the release of some pretty awesome games spanning indie titles, remakes of classic PS1 games, Nintendo’s comeback with the release of the Switch, and everything in between.  It’s now the Duck’s turn to honor my top ten games of the decade (not including remakes because that doesn’t quite seem fair). …

Top 5 FNAF Fan Games

One can’t really talk about horror games these days without being reminded of Five Nights at Freddy’s.  Love it or hate it, it can’t be denied that this series has spawned an immense popularity, with an increasingly confusing lore, lots and lots of merchandise, and let’s not forget…fan games!  While the Five Nights at insert…

Resonance: City of Tears

After discovering Hollow Knight a few months ago, it quickly became one of my absolute favorite games of the this generation. Heck, it might even land somewhere in my top 15 of all time. I absolutely love this game for so many reasons: its satisfying combat, its unique art direction, its platforming and exploration elements,…

Day 21: Game with the Best Story

Once again, I am slowly working my way through 30 days’ worth of video game topics.  And once again, I am taking the task far too seriously.  The next topic on the list is the game with the best story, which is an exceedingly difficult question, if you ask me.  I mean, there are so…

Independent Developers Are Amazing

As a gamer, I’ve spent the lions share of my game time over the years with the big-budget “AAA” games that both dominate the market and the conversations surrounding it. I enjoy these games (mostly), but have found myself finding fewer and fewer titles that actually get me excited. They’re still there, but are growing…
