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…

Learn More About Wiswald in Bravely Default II Trailer

Bravely Default II is still a couple of months out, but between the demos available on the Switch and trailers like this one, fans can already get a pretty good sense of what the game is like. In this trailer in particular, fans can get a better look at Wiswald itself and some of the…

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…

Among Us is Coming To Xbox! Is PS Next?

Alright, so this isn’t exactly breaking news, but I wanted to take a minute to bring more attention to it anyway. First, I’ve become a huge Among Us fan in the past couple of months, so I’m excited that other people are going to get the chance to play it! Second, I just think this…

Listmas 2020: The Duck’s Ideal Christmas Event

Christmas is nearly here, and with it, Toy Day should soon become available in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  While we know a few details about this upcoming event, I wanted to list what would make for my ideal Christmas event.

Listmas 2020: Three Excellent Bonuses

You know, I’ve really been feeling like an old gamer lately. While there are still plenty of great games coming out every year, I still can’t help but notice more and more of the conventions I grew up falling away in favor of increasing monetization. These days, I’m finding myself wondering whether or not proper…

Up this week: Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time (PS4, 2020) – it is about time we see what Crash and the gang have been up to in this newest entry in this beloved series. Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4, 2017) – who is Aloy and why are her lands overrun by machines? We find out…

Listmas 2020: Cary’s Favorite Bonus Content

Downloadable content. Expansion packs. Season passes. Extended rigmarole. However you phrase it (maybe not that last way), bonus content for games has long been a part of the industry, and it’s not going away any time soon. I must admit that I wasn’t always a fan of such. For the bulk of my gaming history,…
