The Duck’s New Thoughts on New Horizons

The newest Animal Crossing for the Switch is here at last, and I have been having a great time with it so far.  As of writing this, I’m not terribly far into the game, but I think I’ve played enough to get a decent feel for it, so it’s time I shared my initial impressions,…

Top 10 Games from Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection

Nowadays, retro games are easier to obtain than they’ve ever been, thanks to such services as Nintendo Switch Online or collections where dozens of games are amassed on a single disc.  Never having owned any of the Sega consoles, one such collection that I simply had to buy was Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection on the…

Resonance: Ghost House

Super Mario World was the Mario game that I grew up with.  Though it took many years before I was ever able to actually beat it myself, I still looked back on it with (mostly) fond memories, as a symbol of my childhood, alongside such classics as Donkey Kong Country and The Legend of Zelda:…

Metroid Prime Trilogy: A Comparison

With Metroid Prime 4 sure to be a reality…someday and a full playthrough of the entire Trilogy now in my recent past, I thought it would be a good time to compare all three games and discuss where each game excels and where each falls short.  Though I’ll admit that the first game is by…

Top 4 Worst Challenges in Spyro: Year of the Dragon

I’ve already discussed the top six worst challenges in Spyro 2, so it would only be fair if I complained a bit about the more aggravating parts of Spyro: Year of the Dragon.  Though I only have four items in this list, two of them are a doozy.  As before, I’m only counting challenges that…

Spyro: Year of the Dragon Review

At last, I have completed the entire Spyro Reignited Trilogy with 100% in every game, including trophies and skill points.  That means it’s time to finally review the third and final game in the trilogy, Year of the Dragon…and provide just a little overview of my general experience with everyone’s favorite purple dragon.

The Duck’s Top 10 Games of the Decade!

The last decade has seen the release of some pretty awesome games spanning indie titles, remakes of classic PS1 games, Nintendo’s comeback with the release of the Switch, and everything in between.  It’s now the Duck’s turn to honor my top ten games of the decade (not including remakes because that doesn’t quite seem fair). …
