Crash’s Ugly Twin: Trash Bandicoot

For the month of April, we thought it would be fitting to cover all the silliness gaming has to offer.  For the Duck’s first post of the month, I thought I’d talk a little bit about a rather wacky series I recently had the pleasure of playing, Crash Bandicoot.

On Being a “Good” Player of Video Games

When I sat down to write this post, I initially had in mind to cover some of the recent news concerning Far Cry 5, due out March 27th, concerning it’s length. The crux of the article was going to be something along the lines of “does game’s length matter anymore?” But then, as I was…

Epic Releases $12 Million Worth of Paragon Assets

Earlier today, Epic Games announced that about $12 million worth of assets from it’s defunct MOBA game, Paragon, are now available on the Unreal Marketplace for all Unreal Engine 4 developers to use.
