Listmas 2019: The Duck’s 6 Favorite Mini Games

For our final week of Listmas 2019, we decided to write about anything we felt like.  Ironically enough, the Duck usually doesn’t enjoy mini games.  In fact, I often resent it when a game makes me play them in order to progress or to obtain an item I need for 100%.  However, having recently enjoyed…

Listmas 2019: Holiday-ing with Games

Christmas, Christmas time is here! And whether you’re still reveling in gifts or looking for a cozy spot to take a nap on this day after, it’s also as good a time as any to pick up a controller and dive into a game or seven. In my household, the season of Christmas and New…

Listmas 2019: The Duck’s Favorite Games to Play Around Christmastime

This week, we’re covering the games we enjoy playing around Christmastime, whether it be alone or with others.  I must confess that I don’t have many games that I would specifically play around Christmas, so I’m instead going to largely focus on games that I have played around Christmas (regardless of how much fun was…

Listmas 2019: Getting Jiggy With It

Who got jiggy with it first? Will Smith or Banjo and Kazooie? Not that it really matters, because we all know the real answer. And it’s that the Banjo-Kazooie series is among the best 3D platformers ever! And while these besties, (errr, mostly, at least when Kazooie isn’t being uppity) have plenty to celebrate, least…

Listmas 2019: The Duck’s Favorite Jiggies

With Banjo and Kazooie’s semi-recent inclusion in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, we thought we’d make a list dedicated specifically to the bear and bird duo, a list of our favorite Jiggies!  Today, I am listing my top 5 Jiggies from each game on the Nintendo 64.  Let’s get started!

Listmas 2019: Round Round, Get Around, I Get Around

When it comes to moving about in games, some of them offer more options than just your two feet. For this week’s Listmas list, our topic is all about transportation, which, I will admit with my choices, I have widely interpreted to mean anything from things you actually ride/drive to things that help quicken your…

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…

Listmas 2019: Just Idling

Welcome once again to everyone’s favorite time of year…Listmas! As devoted followers, you, no doubt, already know that we’ve kicking off our favorite blogging holiday celebration with a particularly interesting topic on a game element that’s easy to overlook: idle animations. That’s to say, the things your character or characters do when you put down…

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…
