Top 5: 1990s Fighting Games I’d Like to See Rebooted

With the recent release of the viscerally exciting Mortal Kombat 11, I can’t help but revisit that moment when I first played the original Mortal Kombat game on the SNES some 25 years ago. I was so out of sorts with the controls, having become used to the Street Fighter way of doing things. And…

Top 5 Sub-Worlds in Ultimate’s World of Light

Having completed Super Smash Bros Ultimate’s World of Light, I have to say I had mixed feelings about the whole experience, but that’s a subject for another post.  The biggest highlight for me were the game’s sub-worlds (the locations reached via portals), which managed to break up the tedium of battles with some puzzles, quizzes,…

Listmas 2018: Games that I Want to Play (or Finish) Next Year

Merry Christmas (belatedly) and Happy New Year (almost)! Hope you’ve enjoyed our #Listmas posts as much as we’ve enjoyed writing them. 🙂 Here now, with 2019 coming into plain sight, it’s the perfect time to look forward into my gaming crystal ball to see what games, old and new, will hopefully receive some quality time…

Listmas 2018: Games I Want to Play Next Year

Last week, the Duck talked about games I didn’t get around to playing in 2018.  In my final Listmas post, I shall be looking to the future and listing the games I plan to play in 2019!  There are some pretty good ones coming up this year….

Listmas 2018: Games I Can’t Wait to Play!

Welp, the end of 2018 will soon be upon us. Much like 2017 before it, it was both a great and terrible year for gaming. The highs reached were almost astronomical while some of the lows really couldn’t get much lower if they tried. That said, 2019 is looking like it’ll be even better, and…

Listmas 2018: Games I Didn’t Play This Year

Up next in our #Listmas rounds is a simple question: What games did you not play this year but wanted to? My game radar this year remained honed in on Red Dead Redemption II for most of it. But that doesn’t mean my head was in the sand otherwise. A number of awesome games presented…

Listmas 2018: Games I Didn’t Get Around To

Merry Listmas everyone! As long as the year is, it’s still very easy to run its entire length and still miss out on playing at least a few of the games you’d planned on spending some time with. Just like with my last list, I wasn’t sure how to build this one at first. This…

Listmas 2018: The Devil in is the Details in Red Dead Redemption II

Setting aside my personal feelings about Red Dead Redemption II, the fact remains that Rockstar created a very different and very special game. While it doesn’t do everything perfectly game-wise, it contains some of the most incredible details I’ve ever encountered in a game. When small moments add up to something bigger and are able…

Listmas 2018: Top Games with Stylized Graphics

With video game graphics getting more and more realistic, the games that really stand out to me above all others are actually those with interesting and unique art styles.  There’s certainly something to be said for a game that looks like a work of art, and below, I’d like to list my top examples of…
