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!

Listmas 2019: Top 5 Favorite Idle Animations

As you no doubt know (but I need an intro), idle animations have always served as fun little Easter eggs in select games.  In platformers in particular (but not always), I’ve always enjoyed just standing still and watching what my characters do when they’re bored.  Honestly, they’re a great way to add extra personality to…

Top 5 Boss Fights in Luigi’s Mansion 3

As I already mentioned in my Luigi’s Mansion 3 review, this newest entry in the franchise manages to improve upon the original game in pretty much every conceivable way.  And that includes the boss fights!  While the original Luigi’s Mansion had some…okay battles against, you know, a giant baby, or an annoying giant Boo that…

Top 5 Best Floors in Luigi’s Mansion 3

As I played through Luigi’s Mansion 3 for the very first time, one of my favorite parts of the game was the sheer anticipation of discovering the theme for each new floor.  The Last Resort is no ordinary hotel (haunted or otherwise), as its many floors contain some pretty cool surprises.  Being one of the…

Top 5: Games to Get Now That I Have a Nintendo Switch

Woohooooo! With extra WOO! Just this past weekend, and brand new toy arrived at the house, and I’m still stunned! You can tell it’s true by all the exclamation points! You know how it is when you get an idea into your head, and it’s all you can do to not think about it? Well,…

Top 5: 1990s Fighting Games I’d Like to See Rebooted

With the recent release of the viscerally exciting Mortal Kombat 11, I can’t help but revisit that moment when I first played the original Mortal Kombat game on the SNES some 25 years ago. I was so out of sorts with the controls, having become used to the Street Fighter way of doing things. And…

Top 5 Sub-Worlds in Ultimate’s World of Light

Having completed Super Smash Bros Ultimate’s World of Light, I have to say I had mixed feelings about the whole experience, but that’s a subject for another post.  The biggest highlight for me were the game’s sub-worlds (the locations reached via portals), which managed to break up the tedium of battles with some puzzles, quizzes,…

Top 5: Favorite Games Played in 2017

Though both Listmas and 2017 are over, it doesn’t mean that I can’t still reflect on the recently-passed year in list form. As low as the year might have been generally, it was a high point for me with games, particularly games that had been sitting in my backlog. True that I spent much of…
