Mass Effect 2 Memories

This month marks Mass Effect’s tenth anniversary! On November 20th, 2007, the game was first released in North America. And what a ride it’s been for fans since then. Join me here as I share some of my memories from each game of the original trilogy. In this second of three posts, I stumble through…

The Gloves Are Off in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon

We already knew big changes were coming to Pokemon with the upcoming release of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon. It was going to feature additional challenges. It was going to have new antagonists in the form of every themed team from just about every past pokemon generation. It was going to introduce new…

Yiazmat is Driving Me Nuts!

You may recall from my last post on Final Fantasy XII that my time with the game is almost at a close.  All I have left is Mark #45 Yiazmat, the battle with Omega, a few Bestiary entries, and the ending of the main game.  My first goal was to defeat Yiazmat, who sounds pretty…

Super Mario Odyssey’s Open Kingdoms

I’m not what most people would call a fan of “open-world” style games. They were fun back when Assassin’s Creed was still following the adventures of Ezio Auditore, and they were okay when the Inquisitor closed the Breach in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Nowadays though, I’m finding the whole open-world thing more tiring than anything else….

It’s About Time I Played: Mega Man X

The Duck is a frequent latecomer to video games.  Nevertheless, I have been trying with all due diligence to right this wrong by catching up on a lot of the games I had been missing out on, namely those on the SNES and PS1, with a bit of Sly Cooper thrown in.  Future plans include…

It Finally Happened. I’m Now A Huge Fan of the Nintendo Switch

It was inevitable, I  suppose. While I’ve never counted myself as a member of the hardcore Nintendo fandom, the fact is that I practically grew up with Nintendo. My first encounter with video games came with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. My childhood dentist had an NES in his waiting room,…
