I Finally Played Yoshi’s Island

The most I knew about Yoshi’s Island was the fact that most (if not all) people who play it find baby Mario’s crying extremely aggravating.  In fact, I knew there were several Yoshi games out there, and I didn’t even know which one it was that included such a…unique feature.  (I was mainly confused about…

Top 10 Games from Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection

Nowadays, retro games are easier to obtain than they’ve ever been, thanks to such services as Nintendo Switch Online or collections where dozens of games are amassed on a single disc.  Never having owned any of the Sega consoles, one such collection that I simply had to buy was Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection on the…

Resonance: Ghost House

Super Mario World was the Mario game that I grew up with.  Though it took many years before I was ever able to actually beat it myself, I still looked back on it with (mostly) fond memories, as a symbol of my childhood, alongside such classics as Donkey Kong Country and The Legend of Zelda:…

Resonance: Astral Observatory

Out of all the games I’ve played, no game connects with me emotionally quite like Majora’s Mask.  My first exposure to the game was the short-lived playthrough Mother Duck started on our brand new Nintendo 64.  She only completed the beginning of the game, up until you get your ocarina back from Skull Kid.  Intimidated…

A Newcomer’s MediEvil (PS4) Review

I want to start off this review by saying that, no, I have never played the original MediEvil game on the PS1, having been a Nintendo-only sort of gamer back in the 90’s.  In fact, my first exposure to the series, in any sort of form, was the inclusion of Sir Daniel in PlayStation All-Stars…

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…

Listmas 2019: The Duck’s Favorite Jiggies

With Banjo and Kazooie’s semi-recent inclusion in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, we thought we’d make a list dedicated specifically to the bear and bird duo, a list of our favorite Jiggies!  Today, I am listing my top 5 Jiggies from each game on the Nintendo 64.  Let’s get started!

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 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…
