Cheeky Charlatans: Crazy Redd

When first started discussing gaming’s greatest mischief makers, Redd the Fox was one of the first characters to pop into my mind. It’s not so much that he’s done anything terribly bad (that we know of), but rather his obvious shifty attitude. This is a dude who runs his business out of back alleys, tents…

Animal Crossing is Kind of Amazing

The rain is already back in my (current) part of the world, and rain always gets me thinking about Animal Crossing. Well, not Animal Crossing itself, but the rainy day theme from the original game. I can’t help but wander back to it whenever the first rain of the year shows up, and that’s usually…

Listmas 2020: Hatmonster’s Top Games of 2020

With the closing of each year, it’s always good to take a look back at how the past 365 days went. In terms of gaming, I’d say 2020 was a little below average. There was some good stuff released, but nothing outstanding. There was also at least one major disappointment depending on who you ask….

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: The Duck’s Ideal Christmas Event

I Think I’m Finally Bored of New Horizons

After months and months of diligently playing the newest entry to the Animal Crossing series, of carefully crafting the perfect island, decorating the perfect house, and collecting the perfect set of villagers, I think I’m finally bored.  That’s not to say the game isn’t fantastic.  Because I absolutely love it.  But until the next major…

Diving is Returning to Animal Crossing in July!

Nintendo recently released a video concerning the newest updates coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons!  In just a few days (July 3, to be more exact!), the diving introduced in New Leaf will be returning, along with Pascal the otter, who will be providing us with DIY recipes for mermaid furniture.  And…it appears that Gulliver…

Top Changes I’d Like to See in New Horizons

With Animal Crossing: New Horizons receiving frequent updates to add new events and other features, I started thinking about other improvements I’d like to see in future updates.  This is by no means an exhaustive list, so if you have any changes of your own that you’re hoping Nintendo will implement, please share your thoughts…

I’ve Got Big Plans for Quackville

Last week, I wrote about how I finally got a 5-star rating in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  With that milestone now out of the way, I decided that my next goal was to terraform the island of my dreams.  After watching a whole bunch of island tours on YouTube and general brainstorming, I had a…
