The First Tree is Something Truly Special

The First Tree is an interesting sort of game that I have to approach a bit differently than I would my usual game reviews.  The big difference here is…The First Tree is not really a video game.  It is, but it’s not.  It’s more like an interactive story than anything else.  So if it’s a…

Listmas 2020: The Duck’s Most Anticipated Games for 2021

To end off Listmas 2020, we’re going to talk about what games we’re most looking forward to in 2021!  In addition to new releases, I was going to list a few games I’d most like to see added to the Nintendo Switch Online service, as well.

Listmas 2020: The Duck’s Top Games from 2020

The Duck played a whole bunch of games this year, partly thanks to some really good sales, allowing me to download a good deal of digital games for sometimes as low as $5 or even $2!  Now that’s one heck of a deal!  Since I didn’t exactly buy that many games that were actually released…

Listmas 2020: The Duck’s Ideal Christmas Event

Christmas is nearly here, and with it, Toy Day should soon become available in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  While we know a few details about this upcoming event, I wanted to list what would make for my ideal Christmas event.

Nintendo’s Cyber Sales Have Begun!

As most Nintendo fans know, Nintendo isn’t exactly keen on discounting their games. It doesn’t matter how old a game gets; if it releases for $50, you can bet it’ll still be $50 three years later. Even so, even Nintendo has sales every now and then, and the Black Friday/Cyber Monday period is one of…

Playing as a Two-Year Old in Among the Sleep

Going into Among the Sleep, I had no idea what to expect.  In fact, I was not even aware the game existed until I was searching for the release date for Little Nightmares 2.  Though my search was in vain, I was recommended several horror games, the most intriguing being Among the Sleep, which I…

Inmost Is As Beautiful As It Is Eerie

I first became aware of Inmost thanks to a trailer on YouTube.  I don’t recall even finishing the trailer because the first few moments had already piqued my interest.  The game’s surprisingly beautiful pixel art style and eerie atmosphere was what hooked me.  Oftentimes, it is unwise to judge a game based solely on such…

Uncanny Accounts: The Darker Side to Kirby

Hey, folks, I’m going to be completely upfront with you about this one.  I’m writing about creepy lore in the Kirby series.  And before you laugh and walk away, bear with me for a moment longer.  Sure, at first glance, Kirby might seem like the cutest franchise to have ever existed.  But when you recall…

Child of Light: An Excellent RPG for Those Pressed for Time

More often than not, a game with an interesting art style is a surefire way to grab my attention.  While this is most certainly not the only criteria one should consider when perusing their gaming options, it has also led me to such interesting titles as Okami, GRIS, and Cuphead, all of which are excellent…

And I’m Done with Ni no Kuni: A Response Post

It is always a shame when one of our favorite gaming franchises either dies or is reduced to a shadow of its former self.  Not long ago, Hatm0nster published a post on how he was finally done with the Paper Mario franchise (as am I), due to the sad fact that the series has lost…
