Listmas 2019: Top 5 Favorite Idle Animations

As you no doubt know (but I need an intro), idle animations have always served as fun little Easter eggs in select games.  In platformers in particular (but not always), I’ve always enjoyed just standing still and watching what my characters do when they’re bored.  Honestly, they’re a great way to add extra personality to…

Banjo and Kazooie Are Coming to Smash!

It’s happening, folks. Once again, a recent trailer has blown my mind…and the minds of pretty much every other gamer in existence. Banjo and Kazooie are coming to Super Smash Bros Ultimate as DLC fighters!

Challenge Mode: Racing Canary Mary

Though gaming is easily my favorite hobby, there are a few things about it that I really don’t enjoy.  At the top of the list are any challenges that require me to press buttons quickly.  As silly as it sounds, I absolutely hate having to do this, as my weak noodle arms do not possess…

Rare Scares: Thaaank Yooouuu…

Good day (or perhaps good evening) to all you lovely citizens of the night! Halloween is almost upon us, and that means Rare Scares month has almost passed. They haven’t all been scares per se, but I’d say Rare’s oddly scary reputation still stands. This final scare isn’t really all that creepy at first glance…

Rare Scares: The Spooky Mumbo Portrait in Mad Monster Mansion

For October of 2018, we’re going to be focusing on Rare Scares, a delightfully spooky series that’s all about the scarier moments in Rareware games.  To start out the Duck’s own posts on the topic, I thought it was only fitting to discuss something that has haunted me since ducklinghood.  It’s creepy and just a…

Project Dream’s Evolution into Banjo-Kazooie

For years, the mysteries surrounding Banjo-Kazooie have fascinated me.  One of these mysteries was, of course, the infamous Stop ‘n’ Swop, an unused feature in the game that, while never implemented (not until the XBox Live Arcade anyway) in the Nintendo 64 era as intended, was still outright talked about by the characters as if…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #42

Hi everyone! Thanks for joining us today, as it’s time for some more YouTube Highlights! But before we get to all the fun (and oh, there is plenty!), we have a somber matter to discuss concerning our channel. Recently we received a number of distressingly inappropriate comments on a couple of our videos. We first…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #41

Hello once again ye good people of the internet! Now that we’ve bid farewell to another holiday season, it’s time to take a look back at all the goings-on over on our YouTube channel. We have a good bit to catch up with, because while the holidays came and went, our channel soldiered forth into…

Listmas 2017: The Duck’s 2017 Gaming List

Merry Listmas, dear readers!  With the end of the year growing ever nearer, I thought it would be fun to look back on all the games I had played in 2017.  It’s been a great year for gaming, not to mention an extremely productive one.  I mean, wowie!  Fifteen games?  How did I manage that!
