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…

Top 5 NES Games Included in Nintendo Switch Online (So Far)

With a couple dozen NES games now available on Nintendo Switch Online, you might not be sure which games are worth your time and which are not.  Well, now that I’ve tried out nearly all of the games being offered, I thought I’d make your choice a bit easier with a list of top 5…

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,…

Resonance: Ghost House

Super Mario World was the Mario game that I grew up with.  Though it took many years before I was ever able to actually beat it myself, I still looked back on it with (mostly) fond memories, as a symbol of my childhood, alongside such classics as Donkey Kong Country and The Legend of Zelda:…

Metroid Prime Trilogy: A Comparison

With Metroid Prime 4 sure to be a reality…someday and a full playthrough of the entire Trilogy now in my recent past, I thought it would be a good time to compare all three games and discuss where each game excels and where each falls short.  Though I’ll admit that the first game is by…

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore: It’s Good to be Back!

After about three years of waiting, I’ve finally gotten the chance to return to one my favorite games from the Wii U: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE thanks to the new enhanced port for the Nintendo Switch. Mind you, there was nothing preventing me from playing it again on the Wii U. In fact, I’d just…

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). …

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…

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…
