A Trio of Silly Glitches

Sometimes, even our games like to play little pranks on us.  And seeing as it is April, what better month to call out my games on their immature behavior?  Below we will be discussing three silly glitches I encountered during my recent gaming endeavors.

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #54

Happy weekend, everyone! Um, well…happy almost-weekend might be more appropriate. But even so, the actual weekend is a mere handful of hours away, and are ever so glad for it! (Yeah, we’re just going to skip over all the Friday the 13th stuff, because Saturday the 14th is more our speed, haha!) However, before we…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #53

Is it Friday already?! Not that we’re complaining, but where the heck did the week go?? No matter, that, because it’s time for our YouTube Highlights! And what goodies we have to share this week! From more 3D platforming antics involving everyone’s favorite bandicoot, to the semi-return of our fantastically fun fighting game series. As…

Crash’s Ugly Twin: Trash Bandicoot

For the month of April, we thought it would be fitting to cover all the silliness gaming has to offer.  For the Duck’s first post of the month, I thought I’d talk a little bit about a rather wacky series I recently had the pleasure of playing, Crash Bandicoot.

As we head into what we hope is a nice Easter/Passover/etc. weekend, we bid you all happy Friday! Yes, with the rising tides and setting sun, we’ve reach the end of yet another week, and that means it’s time to peek back into our week of gaming videos and share a few of our favorite…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition, #51

THANK GOODNESS IT’S FRIDAY!!! Whew. Sorry for being so loud about it, but sometimes you just have to emphatically sing the praises of Friday! And as it is another glorious Friday, it is time for us to share some of our YouTube Highlights. This is our weekly round-up of what went down (or up?) recently…

The Road Better Left Untaken

I love Crash but playing through the Crash Bandicoot N’ Sane Trilogy reminded me of just how infuriating the original game could be. It requires much greater levels of precision and endurance than its successors, and there no level that typifies this more than “The High Road’. I truly, absolutely, wholeheartedly, and unabashedly hate “The…

Saturday Video Round Up: March 5 – 11

Even though I’m in Boston for the annual Penny Arcade Expo aka PAX East this weekend, I’m not going to leave you guys hanging without something to do. I mean, it is Saturday after all. So as usual, here are the best and brightest videos from the past week. The headliner this week, for me…

#Listmas: 7 Great RPG Palette Cleansers

Tell me if this sounds familiar: you’ve sunk hours and hours into that new RPG you’ve been waiting for. You love the world, enjoy the combat, picked some favorite characters, and even the story isn’t half-bad. It’s everything you were hoping for and you’re enjoying it, but something feels off. You’re not just not really…

Nostalgia and Crash Bandicoot

Image Captured by Hatm0nstar Nostalgia can be a funny thing sometimes. Sometimes it keeps us from seeing a old favorite’s shortcomings, but other times…other times it can do the opposite. It’s effect of making us simply accept everything in an old game can also blind us towards the nature of its strengths, and even that…
