The Value of Rubbish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

In past Animal Crossing games, the only things of value were actual items. Clothes, furniture, fossils, etc. were the things that players wanted because they were what advanced the game. Clothes made you look cool, fossils and fish looked nice in the museum and furniture is what made your house. All of these are still…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons and My Quest for the Perfect Island

As this is my third week in a row writing about Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it’s probably safe to say that I’m still thoroughly addicted to the game. There’s just so much to work on that I find myself chasing different things each day I log in. Some days I want to make some bells,…

I Still Can’t Get Enough of Animal Crossing: New Horizons Online

It’s been, what, 18 years or so since the launch of the original Xbox Live service, right? The internet fundamentally transformed how gaming has worked in the years since. So much so that we can barely imagine what an Xbox, PC, or PlayStation console would be like without it. And then there’s Nintendo. It took…

The Room: Puzzling at Its Finest

The Duck recently had the pleasure of playing a little puzzle game called The Room, which I heard about from fellow blogger The Shameful Narcissist.  Originally released as an iOS game in 2012, I got to play the Switch version, which came about far more recently (2018…I’m always late for things).  This game was a…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is My New Addiction

Hello and happy Easter everybody! It’s been awhile, but I’m finally back and ready to bring some fresh new content! It’s been a crazy month for me to be honest. I changed jobs, moved to basically the other side of the world and have been spending time getting established and set up in a completely…

The Duck’s New Thoughts on New Horizons

The newest Animal Crossing for the Switch is here at last, and I have been having a great time with it so far.  As of writing this, I’m not terribly far into the game, but I think I’ve played enough to get a decent feel for it, so it’s time I shared my initial impressions,…

The Duck’s Top 10 Games of the Decade!

The last decade has seen the release of some pretty awesome games spanning indie titles, remakes of classic PS1 games, Nintendo’s comeback with the release of the Switch, and everything in between.  It’s now the Duck’s turn to honor my top ten games of the decade (not including remakes because that doesn’t quite seem fair). …

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore – Getting Hyped All Over Again

I’m not really sure how it’s happening, but one of my absolute favorite Wii U games has an enhanced port releasing for the Switch next week! It goes by the ridiculously long name: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore and is about as outlandish as it sounds. This isn’t a bad thing though, quite the opposite…

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…
