The Duck’s Most Anticipated Games for 2022

A new year of gaming is upon us, and today, the Duck shall be discussing some of my top anticipated games that will be releasing in 2022 (in no particular order)!  While some of them will be no surprise, I’ve made sure to round out the list with a few lesser known titles, with trailers…

Minecraft: Demo Review

It might seem hard to believe, but…I’ve never played Minecraft before.  I know, Minecraft has got to be one of the most popular games of all time, but…nope.  Never played it.  Seeing as I had recently tried out the demo for a similar game called Terraria, however, I decided it was time I gave Minecraft…

Cary’s 2021 Game of the Year (and Bonus Review!)

Looking back on my 2021 in gaming, two words come to mind: few and scattered. That’s to say I played plenty but didn’t complete many games, let alone any released in 2021. The only exception to this would be Mass Effect Legendary Edition. While its DLC was new to me, however, the excellent core experience…

The Duck’s 2021 Game of the Year

It’s now the Duck’s turn to cover my game of the year!  While I didn’t exactly play a lot of games released in 2021, the few that I did were quite memorable indeed.  After perusing my choices, however, the most logical pick would have to be Psychonauts 2 thanks to its creativity and unique premise.

Portal Knights: Demo Review

My first impression upon starting the Portal Knights demo was that it felt a lot like Minecraft with RPG elements.  The game is described as a sandbox RPG, and the world is split up into a bunch of randomly-generated islands, though the demo only had us exploring one island after I spent a good deal…

FNAF: Security Breach: Not Quite Deserving of Superstar Status

It would be pretty difficult for any gamer to be unaware of the premise behind the hugely popular Five Nights at Freddy’s series at this point.  The early games largely involved sitting in place in your office while you check your cameras and try to keep out the roaming animatronics in a pizza restaurant reminiscent…

Awesome Pea: Demo Review

Awesome Pea is a retro-styled platformer where you control a supposedly greedy pea who enjoys collecting money. The game clearly wants to be reminiscent of old-school games, with green-tinged graphics and an unforgiving nature, sending you back to the start of each level whenever you mess up. The demo consists of the first three stages…

Listmas 2021: Favorite Things in Conker’s Bad Fur Day

Over on our YouTube channel, my playthrough of Rare’s now-classic 3D platformer (and then some), Conker’s Bad Fur Day, recently wrapped up, and the game’s been on my mind since. This is thanks, in part, to the fact that I recently tried out its remake, Conker: Live & Reloaded, which I had never played before….

Listmas 2021: The Duck’s Funniest Games

During last year’s Listmas, we spent a week discussing our favorite comedic gaming moments.  This year, for the Duck’s free choice, I thought it would be fun to list some of the funniest games, in general, that I’ve ever played.  After all, who doesn’t want to end the holiday season with some good cheer?  As…

Terraria: Demo Review

To be honest, I tend to get rather overwhelmed by games that give me too much freedom.  A game that can be played almost endlessly is more akin to a nightmare to me than the exciting prospect that it really should be.  Sure, I do like freedom in my games, freedom to complete a challenge…
