Day 17: Favorite Antagonist

As you can see, I’m still working my way through the 30 days’ worth of video game topics, and I’ve just managed to get a couple days past the halfway point.  Yay for me!  Day 17’s topic is my favorite antagonist.  For me, talking about my favorite of anything can be difficult because my favorites…

The First Good Video Game Movie is Here

After a long wait, the Ratchet and Clank movie has finally come out.  Video game movies have a long history of being pretty terrible, but after watching the trailer (um…several dozen times), this one looked like it would be the first video game movie to be of quality.  Nevertheless, after its release in theatres, I…

The New Ratchet and Clank Movie Trailer: Thoughts From a Duck

Dear Ratchet and Clank fans, you may or may not have heard that a new trailer has recently come out for the Ratchet and Clank movie, scheduled for release April 29, 2016.  While I would have very much liked to be the first to post about this, it looks like Derek beat me to it…

Top Anticipated Games: #gamersonwatch

With E3 at a close, I must make a confession.  While I have certainly heard of this important gaming event, I admit that I don’t typically pay it much heed, and any news I do hear comes from random people or articles on the Internet.  Nevertheless, I have a short list for you all in…

Gaming Secrets and Hoaxes: Can You Tell the Difference?

This month’s community challenge is a most fitting one for the month that is home to April Fools, revolving around the many secrets found in video games, from the ridiculous to the outright fake. I have encountered a good number of these secrets and have managed to unlock many of them, to feelings of great…

My Favorite (April) Fools

April Fool’s Day may have already come and gone, but that’s not going to stop me from writing a post for this rather silly holiday, and it’s not going to stop me from asking a question. Who is your favorite video game fool? You know, an idiotic character that you can’t help but love. The…

Into the Nexus, I Hardly Knew Thee

I went on a bit of a spending spree around Christmas time. When I was stocking up on supplies for this year’s masquerade, I decided, while I was at it, I might as well buy a whole bunch of Ratchet and Clank figurines. As if that wasn’t enough, I also decided this was a great…

Getting Back To It – Ratchet Deadlocked

Image captured by Hatmonster This year I resolved to finally dig into those games that I’ve been meaning to revisit over the years. The goal is simple: successfully complete one game on the list a month. Will they all be just as enjoyable as they always were, or will the rose-colored glasses of nostalgia get…

So Many Games to be Thankful For

Seeing as my fellow admins wrote their own Thanksgiving-themed posts (a long time ago…) on games they were thankful for, I thought I better get my tail into gear and write one of my own. I intended on publishing this quite some time ago, but Listmas came up, and I wasn’t able to get to…
