Listmas 2019: Top 6 Favorite Modes of Transportation

This week, we’re covering our favorite modes of transportation in gaming.  And when I started thinking about all the possible options for this particular list, I realized that there is truly a wide variety of ways to get around.  And they don’t all have to be vehicles, either.  And so, below are the Duck’s top…

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…

Day 23: Game with the Best Graphics or Art Style

Continuing my way ever so slowly through the 30 days of video game topics, we come to the game with the best graphics or art style.  Though in recent times, I was thoroughly impressed with the graphics of Kingdom Hearts 3, which are easily some of the best I’ve ever seen, I wanted instead to…

Unforgettable: 8-Bit Grannies World Tour

In the not too distant past, I decided to replay Rayman Legends.  Like its predecessor, Rayman Origins, this game is the perfect combination of beautiful, challenging, and sometimes, downright weird.  Out of a plethora of strange moments, none are so memorable for me as the music levels, even more so when you consider their 8-bit…

What I Want To See at E3 2019

E3 2019 is finally upon us! The announcements will have already started rolling in once this post goes up, but I still wanted the chance to talk about the things I hope to see at the show this year. I’m not everything on the list will get attention, but you never know. E3 may be…

Feeling Cautiously Optimistic for The Division 2

When I bought the original Tom Clancy’s The Division at launch back in 2016, I thought I was going to get something to fill the Destiny-shaped hole in my gamer’s heart. I got that, but only for a couple of hours. It really didn’t take long to discover that The Division was a very hollow…

Listmas 2018: Top Games with Stylized Graphics

With video game graphics getting more and more realistic, the games that really stand out to me above all others are actually those with interesting and unique art styles.  There’s certainly something to be said for a game that looks like a work of art, and below, I’d like to list my top examples of…

The Duck’s Top 10 Video Game Songs

While we have discussed often songs that have resonated with us (and the Duck has frequently listed top 5’s and 10’s from various games over on my own blog), we have yet to compile a list of our top songs from video games in general.  Today, I am going to right this wrong with a…

A Mario and Rabbids Crossover?

Despite a rather limited budget and a low likelihood that I will be getting the Nintendo Switch any time soon, I have still made efforts to keep up with recent and upcoming games on Nintendo’s newest console, if only in a casual fashion.  Most of these games have either been met with excitement or simple…

Beyond Good & Evil 2: Different But Still Familiar

At this year’s E3, long-time fans of Beyond Good and Evil finally got the announcement they’d been waiting for since 2009: concrete proof that Beyond Good and Evil 2 was in development. Ubisoft had previously announced that the game was in development back in October 2016, but talk is cheap when it comes to a…
