The Duck’s Top 10 Games of the Decade!

The last decade has seen the release of some pretty awesome games spanning indie titles, remakes of classic PS1 games, Nintendo’s comeback with the release of the Switch, and everything in between.  It’s now the Duck’s turn to honor my top ten games of the decade (not including remakes because that doesn’t quite seem fair). …

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…

Stalled in Hyrule Castle

It’s not that I wanted to actively quit The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It just…kind of…happened. I can tell you exactly where things stalled out, too – the second gatehouse in Hyrule Castle. I want to say that it was mostly due to the Lynel, the second Lynel (one was in the…

Resonance: Divine Beast Vah Naboris Battle

Folks, I’m smitten! I thought that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was great purely from a gaming standpoint, but oh, its soundtrack has me over the moon! It’s…it’s…simply wonderful! Alright, enough with the gushing. But truly, Breath of the Wild is most definitely my most favorite soundtrack of the moment. I’ve said…

Jumping into Nothing: A Breath of the Wild story

This post contains location spoilers  from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It’s nearing bedtime, and before my eyes get too heavy, I settle in for a short session with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.  I don’t have a set goal in mind, rather, the last time I played Link…

Resonance: Goron City – Day

If I have but one goal this year, it’s to complete The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild! I started up this game a few months back, and it’s been slow-going ever since. That’s partially of my own doing, because, as many of you know, it’s a huge game with lots of distractions quests….

Four New Zelda: BotW Features the Duck Can’t Live Without

Just because my time with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has come to a close, that doesn’t mean I have stopped thinking about it.  This game was an amazing experience, and it introduced a plethora of improvements that have elevated the Zelda franchise to new heights.  Below is a list of the…

Breath of the Wild: A Review

It is probably safe to say that The Legend of Zelda series is one of the most beloved in video game history.  With a history of 30 years and counting, it is only natural, then, that such a series would need to change, either to keep up with improving technology or to prevent itself from…

Breath of the Wild Finally Comes to a Close

It’s been a, ahem, rather wild month, but I’ve finally completed Breath of the Wild.  I feel like a strange emptiness has suddenly opened up in my life after all the many hours I have devoted to this game, but at the same time, I’m also relieved because, honestly, I’m a bit burned out at…
