Listmas 2019: Holiday-ing with Games

Christmas, Christmas time is here! And whether you’re still reveling in gifts or looking for a cozy spot to take a nap on this day after, it’s also as good a time as any to pick up a controller and dive into a game or seven. In my household, the season of Christmas and New…

Listmas 2019: 5 Best ‘Waiting Around’ Moments

Idle animations have always be somewhat underappreciated in games, don’t you think? The developers could just let the characters stand there like statues while we do whatever it is that’s taken us away from the game, but they don’t. More often than not, game makers take the opportunity to add just a little more fun…

A Trio of Favorite Nintendo Memories

Listmas 2017: Yup, Even More Snowy Levels!

Listmas being what it is, I’ve always tried to do at least one list a year that’s somewhat in keeping with the season. As a resident of the Midwest, this is a season that’s usually defined by snow and lots of it. Once mid-November hits, it’s a subject that’s always on our minds in some…

Tricks, Treats, and Feats: Super Mario 64’s 120 Stars

When The Duck, Hatm0nster, and I were knocking around ideas for our “Tricks, Treats, and Feats” series, a big, personal question stuck in my mind. “What are my gaming feats?” Ye olde dictionary describes a “feat” as “an achievement that requires great courage, skill, or strength.” Inasmuch as strength isn’t really a part of gaming,…

With Listmas taking place in the chilly grip of wintertime, it’s only natural that some of our lists reflect this icy time of year.  We’ve already covered snowy levels and chilly characters in past years, so it’s high time we discussed eight chilly songs that will surely have you buttoning up your coats and seeking…

Top 5: Most Emotional Gaming Moments

I’ve never been one to get overly demonstrative with my games, but I was recently reminded of just how powerful a single event in a game can be. Whether it’s a moment that makes you laugh, makes you cry, or makes you scream out in joy or anger, great games have them.  Sometimes our reactions…
