Ori and the Blind Forest: Aggravating, Yet Amazing

Yet another game on my backlog, I had never before heard of Ori and the Blind Forest until someone had requested we play it on our Youtube channel.  Cary ended up taking on the responsibility of recording her playthrough of this amazing game, and as I watched her progress, I knew that this was a…

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is Truly Charming

When I picked up Mario + Rabbids Kindgom Battle earlier this year, I knew I was in for a treat, but I had no clue of just how rewarding an experience it would be. The game had long been on my radar, but with so much else jockeying for my attention, it slowly faded from…

Valve Steam Deck is Already Back-Ordered into 2022

Late last Friday, Valve’s recently-announced Steam Deck system went up for pre-order. As is the case for virtually every piece of new hardware these days, problems quickly arose as fans hurried to place their orders. There was the usual trouble with traffic coming to Valve’s website, and scalpers made their presence known too. Even so,…

Nintendo’s New Switch Looks Cool, But…

So, Nintendo launched a new version of the Switch last week: the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model). It looks nice, and it has some nice changes. However, this isn’t an upgrade in the same vein as upgrades for previous Nintendo consoles. In fact, it’s so in substantial that I can’t help but wonder who exactly this…

Switch Pro is Looking Much More Real, Is it Good Thing Though?

Rumors of a Switch Pro have been swirling around in some form for at least a year or so now, but they’ve never really proven to hold much water. That is, they didn’t until a few days ago. A listing for a Nintendo Switch Pro popped up on Amazon late last week, seemingly confirming the…

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle First Impressions

In hindsight, I’m not sure if I picked the best or worst time to play Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Switch, 2017). When I got it a few weeks ago, I knew that Mass Effect Legendary Edition was in the wings, and I was already headlong into my Mass Effect: Andromeda replay. As well, Neverwinter…

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…

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.
