It’s Official…King. K Rool is in SSB!

I’ll admit that, in recent times, I haven’t really bothered to keep up with gaming news.  Life’s taken up too much of my focus, plus I haven’t felt the need to spend a large quantity of cash on the Nintendo Switch when it only possesses one game I actually feel like playing (Super Mario Odyssey,…

Challenge Mode: The Test of Fear

Video games have certain moments that you could say I live for.  Those Unforgettable moments.  The moments when the music Resonates with you so well that it takes the game to the next level.  And then there are those that remind us that video games can be more than just a fun romp through a…

Crash Bandicoot 2: Top 4 Toughest Levels

I’ve made it through the second Crash Bandicoot game on the N. Sane Trilogy (and published the episodes on Youtube…).  And seeing as this was yet another challenging platformer, it seemed fitting to create another list of the game’s most aggravating levels.  As difficult as the first game was, I think getting 100% in Crash…

Day 19: A Game Setting You Wished You Lived In

At this point, my 30-day video game topic challenge has taken me far beyond 30 days, but I’m still plodding along.  Today’s topic asks which game setting I would like to live in.  I have gone through multiple possibilities in my head, but the one that stuck was the Rayman universe.  Ever since I first…

Crash Bandicoot: Top 5 Toughest Levels

One of many series to which the Duck was quite a latecomer was Crash Bandicoot.  Being very determined to catch up on as many classic series as possible, I was able to finally play this delightful PS1 platformer thanks to the release of the N. Sane Trilogy on the PlayStation 4 (click here to watch…

Hopefully Conquering Final Fantasy 8: Part 4 – The Moment of Truth

My most recent playthrough of Final Fantasy VIII has been going swimmingly.  Or, to be more accurate, it was.  Because it has now come to an end.  I pretty much completed every extra task, with the exception of winning Doomtrain back from the Queen of Cards’ son.  He just wouldn’t use it.  Except for this…

Mario, I Forgive You

My relationship with the Mario franchise has been a rocky one.  Early games like Super Mario Bros 1-3, Super Mario World, and Super Mario 64 turned out to be some of the most troublesome games I’ve yet to own, with the latter two taking literally YEARS to beat, while the original trio has yet to…

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…

Resonance: Kushi’s Ride

This is not the first time we’ve written a Resonance post for Okami.  Why, way back in 2013, I wrote about a rather interesting tune called Giant Monster in Wait.  Three years later in 2016, Hatm0nster discussed Battle of Orochi II.  There’s a good reason why Okami has gotten so much attention, for it is…

Resonance: Snowy Mountain

For our next Resonance post, we shall be visiting one of the Duck’s favorite platformers, the original Jak and Daxter on the PS2.  This game’s soundtrack is unique in that the music is almost…not there, in a sense.  And that’s kind of what I like about it.  There’s just something about this game that relaxes…
