Hunter: The Reckoning – A Proper Review This Time

Though I have talked about the first game in the Hunter: The Reckoning trilogy multiple times in the past…in some really old posts from 2013…that haven’t aged the best (please do not seek them out…), I have never given the game a proper, honest review.  So without further ado, let’s discuss the Duck’s very first…

Challenge Mode: Fighting Dark Yabu in Vexx

A good deal of the time, I’m not a big fan of boss fights.  Many of them are long and tedious and generally not a whole lot of fun.  Other times, they are brutally difficult, and when these battles are of the final-boss variety, it’s only my obsessive desire to finish everything I start that…

Offering Some Solutions to KH3’s Messy Story (Spoilers)

Yes, I’m still fussing over Kingdom Hearts 3.  Though I did enjoy the game to some extent, enough to keep playing until I got Platinum, I wanted to discuss a little something regarding the plot that I thought was rather baffling.  And I’d really like to know if I’m the only person bothered by this…

The Duck’s Top 10 Video Game Songs

While we have discussed often songs that have resonated with us (and the Duck has frequently listed top 5’s and 10’s from various games over on my own blog), we have yet to compile a list of our top songs from video games in general.  Today, I am going to right this wrong with a…

Resonance: Kushi’s Ride

This is not the first time we’ve written a Resonance post for Okami.  Why, way back in 2013, I wrote about a rather interesting tune called Giant Monster in Wait.  Three years later in 2016, Hatm0nster discussed Battle of Orochi II.  There’s a good reason why Okami has gotten so much attention, for it is…

Resonance: Snowy Mountain

For our next Resonance post, we shall be visiting one of the Duck’s favorite platformers, the original Jak and Daxter on the PS2.  This game’s soundtrack is unique in that the music is almost…not there, in a sense.  And that’s kind of what I like about it.  There’s just something about this game that relaxes…

Fools of Gaming: Susano from Okami

What comes to mind when you think of April (besides April showers)?  Why, April Fool’s, of course!  And what better way to celebrate the month (because not everyone likes pranks) than to discuss the fools of gaming?  I’ve already talked about one particularly big fool (both in size and in general foolishness), Captain Qwark from…

Listmas 2017: The Duck’s 2017 Gaming List

Merry Listmas, dear readers!  With the end of the year growing ever nearer, I thought it would be fun to look back on all the games I had played in 2017.  It’s been a great year for gaming, not to mention an extremely productive one.  I mean, wowie!  Fifteen games?  How did I manage that!

Final Fantasy XII Has Finally Come to a Close

I started my second playthrough of Final Fantasy XII in early December 2016.  Nearly a year later, I have finally completed it (it took so long because I took a lot of breaks, particularly to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild).  I am proud to say that I got far closer to…

Yiazmat is Driving Me Nuts!

You may recall from my last post on Final Fantasy XII that my time with the game is almost at a close.  All I have left is Mark #45 Yiazmat, the battle with Omega, a few Bestiary entries, and the ending of the main game.  My first goal was to defeat Yiazmat, who sounds pretty…
