Listmas 2021: Favorite Things in Conker’s Bad Fur Day

Over on our YouTube channel, my playthrough of Rare’s now-classic 3D platformer (and then some), Conker’s Bad Fur Day, recently wrapped up, and the game’s been on my mind since. This is thanks, in part, to the fact that I recently tried out its remake, Conker: Live & Reloaded, which I had never played before….

Listmas 2021: The Duck’s Funniest Games

During last year’s Listmas, we spent a week discussing our favorite comedic gaming moments.  This year, for the Duck’s free choice, I thought it would be fun to list some of the funniest games, in general, that I’ve ever played.  After all, who doesn’t want to end the holiday season with some good cheer?  As…

Hey all, Christmas was yesterday, so I suppose it falls to me to close out this year’s Listmas season.

Listmas 2021: Games the Whole Family Can Get Into

As we all know, Christmas and the other winter holidays all usually involve big family gatherings that tend to last at least an entire day. While it’s great to be seeing everyone, there’s only so much to talk about, so there can be a real risk of things slowing down and getting boring as everyone…

Listmas 2021: A Mascot for Your Thoughts?

In games, as in life, a picture can tell a thousand words. Sometimes, all one needs is merely the sight of a favorite character to know something great from their favorite company is on the horizon, if it isn’t already there. These character representations – these mascots – might seem frivolous, but they serve as…

Listmas 2021: The Duck’s Favorite Gaming Mascots

This week’s Listmas theme covers mascot characters, those characters that are so darn iconic that they actually represent an entire company or franchise.  Today’s post shall cover the Duck’s favorite examples of mascot characters in gaming, in no particular order.

Listmas 2021: Four Mascots Who Add a Bit More Cheer to Their Games

After talking about all the unfairly delicious-looking foods in games last week, it’s probably best to step away from things like treats and items for a bit. Instead, how about something both gamers and in-game characters can enjoy? Something like say, cute mascot characters? There’s a reason mascots are still around in both the real…

Listmas 2021: The Duck’s Gaming-Themed Meal

Well, this is most assuredly the tastiest week Virtual Bastion has had in a long time.  It’s now the Duck’s turn to write about just a handful of the many video game foods I’d like to try.  I’ve narrowed it down to several sections, Sides, Meals, and Desserts, with three entries each.  Because without some…
