Resonance: Astral Observatory

Out of all the games I’ve played, no game connects with me emotionally quite like Majora’s Mask.  My first exposure to the game was the short-lived playthrough Mother Duck started on our brand new Nintendo 64.  She only completed the beginning of the game, up until you get your ocarina back from Skull Kid.  Intimidated…

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: 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: 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: 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…

Favorite Nintendo Memories: Duck Edition

Alas, we have come to the final Nintendo-themed topic of the month.  This time, we’re covering, as the title implies, our favorite Nintendo memories.  I’d like to discuss a variety of memories, so I’ll try to keep these as short as my overindulgent self will allow.

Favorite Nintendo Music: Song of Storms

When I tried to decide on my favorite Nintendo song, I came up with a long list of examples spanning various decades and countless games.  There are, in fact, dozens and dozens of songs from Nintendo that I really enjoy, leading me to realize that I might need to look at things from a different…

Favorite Nintendo Game: Majora’s Mask

Our first topic celebrating 130 years of, quite possibly, THE greatest video game company of all time is our favorite Nintendo game.  Nintendo is such an influential part in the world of gaming that I think the majority of gamers simply must have a favorite from their vast gaming library.  If you’ve been following along…

Day 22: A Game Sequel Which Disappointed You

As I slowly inch my way forward through the 30 days’ worth of video game topics, I arrive upon a pretty easy one, a game sequel which disappointed me.  One game in particular springs to mind, but since it is such an obvious choice, I also wanted to briefly discuss one of the biggest crimes…

Banjo and Kazooie Are Coming to Smash!

It’s happening, folks. Once again, a recent trailer has blown my mind…and the minds of pretty much every other gamer in existence. Banjo and Kazooie are coming to Super Smash Bros Ultimate as DLC fighters!
