Top 5: Things I’m Loving in the “New” Mass Effect

Even though it felt like I had a pretty full gaming plate at the time Mass Effect Legendary Edition released, of course I had to dive in as soon as decent window of opportunity presented itself. I’m about two-thirds of the way through the “legendary” version of ME1 with my renegade engineer Lynn Shepard, and…

Top 5 Best and Top 5 Hardest Levels from Crash 4

Crash Bandicoot 4, which I reviewed here, is easily one of the best games from the franchise, with the interdimensional time-travelling allowing for a really great variety of stages that are as beautifully detailed as they are fun to navigate.  To begin, I’m going to be talking about my top 5 favorite stages from the…

Listmas 2020: Horsing Around in The Witcher 3

If you’re a fan of The Witcher, you know Roach, Geralt’s trusty steed (or steeds, as he names all of his horses “Roach”). As I’m knee-deep in The Witcher 3 now, I’ve come to know its version of Roach quite well. Or, well enough to feel like my bad luck with mounts in games (unless…

Listmas 2020: Cary’s Favorite Comedic Moments

Happy Listmas, one and all! It’s that awesome time of year where we take a break from serious fare to share our gaming thoughts and feelings through the joy of lists. (And you know we love a good list!) And of the lists, ever, anywhere, this week’s Listmas topic is bound to the silliest of…

Top 5: Personal Last-Gen Memories

With this week’s heralded releases of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, it would seem that we can once again make the switch from calling the “next generation” of consoles to the “current generation.” Of course, I have no plans to suddenly ditch anything “last generation,” and neither do many of you, I’m sure….

Top 5: Memorable Real-Life Locations in Games

Although I’ve been enjoying The Talos Principle, I find that when I start playing puzzle games, I often need to to have another, less cerebral game going at the same time. Recently, I found the perfect such candidate in Marvel’s Spider-Man. I’m still finding my footing with this game, but its high-action pacing and web-slinging…

Top 5: Games Lowest On My Replay List

You may be wondering, how can one formulate a TOP 5 list when that list would appear to highlight things at the BOTTOM of said list? Well, just because something isn’t at the top of a list, it doesn’t mean it’s not worth celebrating, right? Hmm. Lest you think that I don’t  understand how lists…

Top 5: Favorite Games Played in 2019

Happy 2020, y’all! With the start of a whole new year with lots of twos and zeroes, it seems more than appropriate to bridge this moment between the end of Listmas and the beginning of a new year in gaming with a festive not-Listmas list post. And that list, the one that is right here,…

Listmas 2019: Jubilant Jiggies

When it comes to gaming, I think there’s nothing quite so satisfying as collecting things in good, old-fashioned platformer. I’m honestly not sure what it is about it. Maybe it’s the little celebrations the characters do every time they get the thing; maybe its that little burst of excitement from completing a goal, or maybe…

Listmas 2019: The Duck’s Favorite Jiggies

With Banjo and Kazooie’s semi-recent inclusion in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, we thought we’d make a list dedicated specifically to the bear and bird duo, a list of our favorite Jiggies!  Today, I am listing my top 5 Jiggies from each game on the Nintendo 64.  Let’s get started!
