New Gameplay Released For The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon

The first major piece of DLC for The Outer Worlds is almost here. The expansion arrives on September 9th, and Obsidian its impending release with a 10 minute gameplay presentation. The focus is on a side-mission rather than the main story, so it’s fairly spoiler-free in case you’re worried about that.

R.I.P. Xbox 360; Goodbye Old Friend

It is not lost on me that just a couple weeks ago I was all like Pish posh! What am I to the future of gaming? Now, as I stare at my permanently dead Xbox 360, I can’t help but wonder if the future isn’t taunting me in some manner. Truth be told, I knew…

Cyberpunk 2077 – Lifepaths Trailer Looks Pretty Cool

A new trailer came out for Cyberpunk 2077 not too long ago, and I have to say that it’s got me feeling a little excited for the game again. The path from announcement to release has been quite a long one, so it’s been hard to stay invested in it most of the time. Anyway,…

Impressions from the Xbox Games Showcase

After the strange debacle that was, generally, the pre-release of the Xbox One, what with Microsoft’s odd focus on it being your one-stop-shop for “entertainment” over just games (Watch TV! Interact with sports! Skype with your friends! Share videos on YouTube! Oh, and use it to play games, too. /sadtrombone), it comes as no shock…

A Few Thoughts on the Xbox Series X

With the next gen looming, and while Sony has kept things close to the chest with the PS5, earlier this week Microsoft released some new bits of information about its latest flagship console, the Xbox Series X. In an Xbox Wire post titled What You Can Expect From the Next Generation of Gaming, Phil Spencer…

Hunter: The Reckoning – A Proper Review This Time

Though I have talked about the first game in the Hunter: The Reckoning trilogy multiple times in the past…in some really old posts from 2013…that haven’t aged the best (please do not seek them out…), I have never given the game a proper, honest review.  So without further ado, let’s discuss the Duck’s very first…

What I Want To See at E3 2019

E3 2019 is finally upon us! The announcements will have already started rolling in once this post goes up, but I still wanted the chance to talk about the things I hope to see at the show this year. I’m not everything on the list will get attention, but you never know. E3 may be…

Challenge Mode: Fighting Dark Yabu in Vexx

A good deal of the time, I’m not a big fan of boss fights.  Many of them are long and tedious and generally not a whole lot of fun.  Other times, they are brutally difficult, and when these battles are of the final-boss variety, it’s only my obsessive desire to finish everything I start that…

Xbox: Goodbye or Hello?

For the past several years, my household has started off each new year with the same question: Do we need a new console? Some years this has meant, do we need to replace a dying but still useful console?, such as an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. (As far as our library goes, these consoles…

Rare Scares: A Mysterious Encounter in Conker’s Bad Fur Day

This next Rare Scares post focuses on a game I don’t believe I’ve ever discussed before, Conker’s Bad Fur Day.  Having missed my chance to purchase this game on the N64, I finally ended up buying the Live and Reloaded version on the XBox.  The reason I never speak of this game is because it…
