The Sonic Movie was Actually…Pretty All Right

One of the most amusing things that happened on the Internet over the past year or so has got to be the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.  More specifically, Sonic’s original nightmare-inducing design, complete with realistic chompers.  In a turn of events that probably surprised everyone, Paramount actually redesigned Sonic and made him…actually really adorable.  My…

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…

Great Games I Almost Missed

Sometimes, I like to think about how things would be if I made different decisions.  Like, if I had never decided to buy the PlayStation 2, my first venture outside my previously Nintendo-only domain, what games would I be playing now?  What would my collection look like?  I’m sure we all have times where there…
