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…

Resonance: Waterfall

It is no secret that the Duck adores Undertale.  One of the many things I love about the game is its amazing soundtrack, which is easily one of my favorites from any game.  I have already written a resonance post about Here We Are, which plays when you explore the True Lab, and today we…

Hopefully Conquering Final Fantasy 8: Part 3

I’m still working diligently on Final Fantasy VIII, using guides as I go so as not to miss anything.  (I was using a guide on a website called Jegged, but then I kept getting lots of weird popups, so I switched to IGN.)  I have recently reached disc 3 and am currently all caught up…

N-No Virtual Console for the Switch?!

Say it ain’t so, Nintendo!  Say it ain’t so! Oh, don’t mind me.  I’m just…a bit upset right now.  It’s fine, really.  But hey, did you hear, Nintendo is apparently not bringing the Virtual Console to the Switch!  What is happening to my life!  I am ill-prepared for this news; why, cruel world, why!  (Oh,…

The Duck’s Favorite Moments with Virtual Bastion

In my last two posts, the Duck talked a bit about Virtual Bastion’s early days and a few notable firsts in celebration of our five-year anniversary.  When you’re lucky enough to spend half a decade working on a blog and Youtube channel dedicated to your favorite hobby, there are bound to be a lot of…

Sunday Video Round Up: May 6 – 12

Before the new week begins, let’s revisit the past seven days by taking a look at the best gameplay and trailers in a brand new edition of the Round Up. So kick back, get comfortable, and press play! Here’s a small look at the big list that waits you below the break. Players waiting for…

There’s a First Time for Everything at Virtual Bastion

Since this month is a time for reminiscing over the last five years of gaming and blogging goodness that has taken place here at Virtual Bastion, I can think of no better time to discuss a few notable “firsts”.  Before we get started, I’d just like to say that, no, I will not be covering…

Five Years with Virtual Bastion: A Duck’s Perspective

Wow, it’s hard to believe, but Virtual Bastion is now five years old!  To celebrate our five-year anniversary, the three of us are going to reminisce and share some of our fondest memories of our time working together.  So sit back, relax, and enjoy this trip down our respective memory lanes, won’t you?

Unforgettable: Dating Papyrus in Undertale

April is a great month for discussing silly gaming moments, and the best game I can think of in terms of sheer humor is Undertale.  Few games have made me laugh quite like this one, and one major reason for this hilarity is thanks to my favorite character, Papyrus.  (If you haven’t already played Undertale,…

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…
