YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #42

Hi everyone! Thanks for joining us today, as it’s time for some more YouTube Highlights! But before we get to all the fun (and oh, there is plenty!), we have a somber matter to discuss concerning our channel. Recently we received a number of distressingly inappropriate comments on a couple of our videos. We first…

Late to the Persona Party with Persona 3 Portable

When I randomly started played Persona 3 Portable (P3P) a couple months ago, I thought I might immediately start up another playthrough series here. Y’know, like we do. I thought I’d offer up regular updates on my progress, thoughts on the game itself, and reactions to whatever it happened to offer in the moment. But,…

Goodbye Neighbor: Thoughts on the Full Version of Hello Neighbor

Over the past several months, I have been following an intriguing indie game called Hello Neighbor.  The premise is simple enough.  Sneak into your neighbor’s house with the goal of finding out what he’s hiding in his basement.  Of course, it’s hardly the player’s business what our mustachioed-neighbor does in the privacy of his own…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #41

Hello once again ye good people of the internet! Now that we’ve bid farewell to another holiday season, it’s time to take a look back at all the goings-on over on our YouTube channel. We have a good bit to catch up with, because while the holidays came and went, our channel soldiered forth into…

de Blob 2 is Getting Re-released for PS4 and Xbox One!

It was only a matter of time. Once a game gets the remaster treatment and releases for current consoles, the release of the sequel(s) and/or a bundle becomes an inevitability in this era of constant remasters and remakes. Ahem at any rate, like its predecessor, de Blob, de Blob 2 has been remastered and will…

Super Mario World Has Been Conquered

I have recently reached a huge achievement in my life.  I…finally…beat…Super Mario World!  I kid you not, over the course of my entire life, I have been attempting to beat that game, and I could never get much farther than Chocolate Island.  That level where, if you take the wrong exit, you end up going…

It’s a JRPG, But With Tanks and Mechs!

Fans of tanks, giant mecha and ridiculously armed tanks might just be in for a treat once Metal Max Xeno launches this year. Taking place on a post-apocalyptic earth, Metal Max Xeno places players in control of a group of young soldiers and survivors as they do their best to survive in a ruined world…

A Game About Mercy: Undertale

You may have heard of an indie PC game inspired by EarthBound called Undertale.  The game’s praise, along with its relation to a SNES game I absolutely love, made it a must-play.  Though, I must admit that I am typically quite reluctant to download PC games because, well, my computer is weird sometimes.  When I…

Listmas 2017: 5 Games I’m Looking Forward to in 2018

Well, here we are at the end of it all. The the old year has come to a close and the new year is poised to replace it. And with a new year comes new games to look forward to! I gotta say, I’m not really convinced that 2018 is going to be a strong…

Listmas 2017: Five Good Things About Mass Effect: Andromeda

2017 has been a really tough year for many of us, for many reasons. Gaming took its share of hits as well, especially in terms of one of the most anticipated games of the year – Mass Effect: Andromeda. What was touted as a space opera on a scale like no other turned out to…

Listmas 2017: 7 Games I Played 20+ Years After Their Release

In the Duck’s previous Listmas post, I listed a group of games that I played 10-19 years after their release dates.  Now we’re getting into the really retro stuff, which were released a whopping two decades before my sorry self finally got around to playing them.  For clarification, this list does not include the original…
