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.

Fools of Gaming: Susano from Okami

What comes to mind when you think of April (besides April showers)?  Why, April Fool’s, of course!  And what better way to celebrate the month (because not everyone likes pranks) than to discuss the fools of gaming?  I’ve already talked about one particularly big fool (both in size and in general foolishness), Captain Qwark from…

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…

On Being a “Good” Player of Video Games

When I sat down to write this post, I initially had in mind to cover some of the recent news concerning Far Cry 5, due out March 27th, concerning it’s length. The crux of the article was going to be something along the lines of “does game’s length matter anymore?” But then, as I was…

Day 18: Favorite Protagonist

The slow-paced madness that is the 30 days of video game topics…thingy continues with yet another head-scratcher.  My favorite protagonist.  Again, being asked what my favorite is of anything is always quite troublesome.  My favorites change constantly, and as difficult as it was to decide upon my favorite villain, as was the topic of day…

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…

Project Dream’s Evolution into Banjo-Kazooie

For years, the mysteries surrounding Banjo-Kazooie have fascinated me.  One of these mysteries was, of course, the infamous Stop ‘n’ Swop, an unused feature in the game that, while never implemented (not until the XBox Live Arcade anyway) in the Nintendo 64 era as intended, was still outright talked about by the characters as if…

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…

South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Gaming Niches

At the start of the new year, I accomplished a minor feat — I finally completed the main story of South Park: The Fractured But Whole. In the immediate afterglow, I grabbed a notebook and jotted down a few thoughts on the game. There are as follows: Great story — totally absurd premise based in…

Resonance: Here We Are

Warning: This post contains spoilers for events that take place towards the end of the True Pacifist Route in Undertale…. Not so very long ago, I had the immense pleasure of playing Undertale, a game that made me feel a wide range of emotions.  I grew to deeply care about characters who had earlier tried…

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. …
