Day 23: Game with the Best Graphics or Art Style

Continuing my way ever so slowly through the 30 days of video game topics, we come to the game with the best graphics or art style.  Though in recent times, I was thoroughly impressed with the graphics of Kingdom Hearts 3, which are easily some of the best I’ve ever seen, I wanted instead to discuss my favorite gaming art style instead, the honor of which goes to Rayman Origins and Legends.

Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage Review

I have now completed the first two Spyro games in the Reignited Trilogy, so it is time for another review.  As is often the case with sequels, Spyro 2 adds a lot of new features to the Spyro formula.  While there are a lot of improvements, there were plenty of frustrating moments, as well.  Let’s get to it!

2019 Art Summary

I’ve now been on Deviant Art for two full years, which means it’s time for another art summary!  Looking over last year’s summary, I’m happy to say that I’ve certainly improved.  Since last year, I’ve gotten much better at coloring eyes, and I’ve also been experimenting on better ways to color hair.  This upcoming year, I’d like to start drawing more dynamic poses and more complex images in general, with more action and possibly more character interaction, as well.  Here’s to another year of doodling!

Listmas 2019 Ducket-List

A fairly recent tradition here on the Duck’s blog is my yearly “duck-et list”.  This year’s list is going to contain a lot of similar topics to the one I wrote back in 2018, as many of my goals have either still not been met or are ongoing and will never truly be considered complete.  Plus, I moved recently, so I’ve got a rather serious life goal in mind, as well….

Listmas 2019: 10 Fun Recipes

With Christmas almost upon us, there are two major things everyone thinks about…gifts and food!  For that reason, I thought I’d cover the latter by discussing some of the Duck family’s favorite recipes.  These aren’t going to be in-depth recipes, by any means, but I’ll at least attempt to summarize each one.  And since all food is delicious, I’m not going to write this list in any particular order. Continue reading Listmas 2019: 10 Fun Recipes

Listmas 2019: Amusement Parks I’ve Visited

Since most of my Listmas topics revolve around gaming, a topic largely reserved for Virtual Bastion, I sometimes have a bit of trouble thinking up Listmas topics to discuss here on my own, personal blog.  Scratching my head and thinking long and hard, I thought it might be fun to list the amusement parks I’ve visited over the years.  Because why not?  So, in no particular order… Continue reading Listmas 2019: Amusement Parks I’ve Visited

Listmas 2019: Top 10 MST3K Episodes

Last year was the first year where I participated in Listmas on this here blog (though I’ve been Listmas-ing for much longer over on Virtual Bastion, in case you want to pay us a visit…).  Since listing things is a surprisingly fun pastime, I decided that I’d do it again this year.  To start things off, I felt like listing my favorite episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000, a super fun series (recently revived on Netflix) where a guy and two robots watch and make fun of cruddy movies.  It’s a seriously fun time, and I’d highly recommend it if it sounds like your cup of tea.  Without further ado, my favorite episodes from the series…more or less (there were a lot to go through, so I may have missed a few…). Continue reading Listmas 2019: Top 10 MST3K Episodes

The Duck Dreams of Abandoned Mansions

The night of 10/21/19, I had another one of my more interesting dreams.  And if you’ve been following this blog for any length of time, then you know what that means.  I’m going to share this dream with you, my dear readers, because I’m weird, and that’s what I do.  As is often the case, the details have become rather fuzzy, but I’ll try to recount this odd dream as well as I can.
