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: 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…

Uncanny Accounts: Gyroids Hold the Souls of the Deceased

If you’re a fellow Animal Crossing fan, odds are you enjoy collecting gyroids.  In fact, there are over 100 different kinds, and they can be found in each game in the series (aside from New Horizons; we’re still waiting on that update, Nintendo).  They are a rather fun and interesting collectible due to how unique…

Going Back in Time With Animal Crossing (On N64!)

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a landmark release for the series in a number of ways, one of which was to catapult it from a niche following to mainstream interest. For me, it got me thinking about past Animal Crossing games, the very first one in particular. I’ve always had a warm place in…

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…
