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…

Hopefully Conquering Final Fantasy 8: Part 3

I’m still working diligently on Final Fantasy VIII, using guides as I go so as not to miss anything.  (I was using a guide on a website called Jegged, but then I kept getting lots of weird popups, so I switched to IGN.)  I have recently reached disc 3 and am currently all caught up…

A Trio of Silly Glitches

Sometimes, even our games like to play little pranks on us.  And seeing as it is April, what better month to call out my games on their immature behavior?  Below we will be discussing three silly glitches I encountered during my recent gaming endeavors.

Crash’s Ugly Twin: Trash Bandicoot

For the month of April, we thought it would be fitting to cover all the silliness gaming has to offer.  For the Duck’s first post of the month, I thought I’d talk a little bit about a rather wacky series I recently had the pleasure of playing, Crash Bandicoot.

Hopefully Conquering Final Fantasy 8: Part 2

I’ve been slowly and steadily making progress in Final Fantasy 8, and I must say, I feel like I’m finally starting to get the hang of things.  As of writing this, I have just reached disc 2, and I have grown far fonder of the game and its characters than I did on my first…

I Ain’t Afraid of No AR Ghosts!

This past weekend, Sony announced their brand new venture into the world of augmented reality (AR) games: Ghostbusters World. As far as comparisons go, think of a mobile game like Pokémon Go! but with proton packs and ghosts rather than pokeballs and Pokémon.

Day 17: Favorite Antagonist

As you can see, I’m still working my way through the 30 days’ worth of video game topics, and I’ve just managed to get a couple days past the halfway point.  Yay for me!  Day 17’s topic is my favorite antagonist.  For me, talking about my favorite of anything can be difficult because my favorites…

Hopefully Conquering Final Fantasy 8: Part 1

I’m sure you’ve all heard me complain about it, many times before, but I was never able to beat Final Fantasy 8.  I think it was due to a complete lack of understanding as to how Junctioning works, along with the fact that enemies become more powerful the more you level up, that accounted for…

My Time With Trico in the Last Guardian

It was thanks to a simple advertisement inside the case of Uncharted 4 that I first learned about The Last Guardian.  It was the majestic form of the massive beast called Trico that got my attention, and it was for that reason that I got the game some while later for the Christmas of 2017. …

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…
