Top 5: 8th Generation Disappointments

With the ongoing craziness surrounding CD Projekt Red and Cyberpunk 2077, I could help but think of all the other times I’ve been disappointed by video games. In fact, it seems every console generation has its share of disappointments. Some are downright awful. Some are just bad, and some of aren’t necessarily bad at all….

Top 5 Best and Top 5 Hardest Levels from Crash 4

Crash Bandicoot 4, which I reviewed here, is easily one of the best games from the franchise, with the interdimensional time-travelling allowing for a really great variety of stages that are as beautifully detailed as they are fun to navigate.  To begin, I’m going to be talking about my top 5 favorite stages from the…

Listmas 2020: Hatmonster’s Most Anticipated Games

Well, we’ve made it. 2020 is finally gone and 2021 is here at last. Will it be any better than its predecessor? Who knows? I hope so. At the very least there are many interesting games on the horizon, and these are the ones I’m most looking forward to!

Listmas 2020: Cary’s Most Anticipated Games of 2021

Know that we’ve kicked 2020 out the door for good (though, that’s still questionable, I guess), it’s time for me to take a look into that which may pepper my gaming landscape in 2021. Frankly, my biggest hope for this year is actually obtaining an XBX or a PS5, but neither my Xbox One nor…

Listmas 2020: The Duck’s Most Anticipated Games for 2021

To end off Listmas 2020, we’re going to talk about what games we’re most looking forward to in 2021!  In addition to new releases, I was going to list a few games I’d most like to see added to the Nintendo Switch Online service, as well.

Listmas 2020: Cary’s Favorite Games Played in 2020

So, this week’s Listmas list is actually called “favorite games of 2020,” but I had to alter it slightly because, well…I’ve not played a single game released this year. (Cyberpunk 2077 is in the wings as of writing, but I doubt I’ll get to it before the clock strikes 2021.) As it turned out for…

Listmas 2020: The Duck’s Top Games from 2020

The Duck played a whole bunch of games this year, partly thanks to some really good sales, allowing me to download a good deal of digital games for sometimes as low as $5 or even $2!  Now that’s one heck of a deal!  Since I didn’t exactly buy that many games that were actually released…

Listmas 2020: Making a Merry In-Game Christmas

Video game Christmas events come in all kinds of flavors. Some are sweet and savory, dripping in fun and Christmas cheer. Others though…others are bland and chalky, putting forth the barest effort and only marginally acknowledging that there’s something to celebrate. While there’s definitely no single recipe for a great Christmas event, I believe there…

Listmas 2020: All I want for Christmas (events) in games is…

This week’s Listmas question is a simple one: what makes a great holiday event? Or, maybe it’s not so simple, since we all enjoy the holidays, and holidays with gaming in our own way. My experience with holiday gaming events is quite limited, unfortunately. Outside of some holiday-themed DLC, the only one I’ve actively participated…
