Listmas 2019: Jubilant Jiggies

When it comes to gaming, I think there’s nothing quite so satisfying as collecting things in good, old-fashioned platformer. I’m honestly not sure what it is about it. Maybe it’s the little celebrations the characters do every time they get the thing; maybe its that little burst of excitement from completing a goal, or maybe…

Listmas 2019: Getting Jiggy With It

Who got jiggy with it first? Will Smith or Banjo and Kazooie? Not that it really matters, because we all know the real answer. And it’s that the Banjo-Kazooie series is among the best 3D platformers ever! And while these besties, (errr, mostly, at least when Kazooie isn’t being uppity) have plenty to celebrate, least…

DualShock 4 Gets a New Button!

It’s kind of weird seeing this since the idea of official controller attachments is still kind new to me, but really this has been a long time coming. There’s been a demand for more “professionally-oriented” controllers for some time now, so it’s odd that it’s taken Sony this long to bring a product to market….

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!

Listmas 2019: The Best Ways to Get Around

One of the best things about gaming in general is the myriad of transportation options available to players. Most of the time it’s mundane stuff like cars, horses and planes, but not always. Sometimes we get to indulge in a bit of fantasy and unreality, and that’s where the magic happens! Using these is part…

Listmas 2019: Round Round, Get Around, I Get Around

When it comes to moving about in games, some of them offer more options than just your two feet. For this week’s Listmas list, our topic is all about transportation, which, I will admit with my choices, I have widely interpreted to mean anything from things you actually ride/drive to things that help quicken your…

Cross-play Has Finally Come Minecraft on PS4

As reluctant as they were to allow it, it looks like Sony is being true to their word in regard to allowing cross-play on their platform. The next wave of cross-play-enabled games is coming, and the first among them is Minecraft! The Bedrock version of the game has finally hit PlayStation 4, and it’s about…

Listmas 2019: Top 6 Favorite Modes of Transportation

This week, we’re covering our favorite modes of transportation in gaming.  And when I started thinking about all the possible options for this particular list, I realized that there is truly a wide variety of ways to get around.  And they don’t all have to be vehicles, either.  And so, below are the Duck’s top…

Listmas 2019: 5 Best 'Waiting Around' Moments

Idle animations have always be somewhat underappreciated in games, don’t you think? The developers could just let the characters stand there like statues while we do whatever it is that’s taken us away from the game, but they don’t. More often than not, game makers take the opportunity to add just a little more fun…
