Kirby Works Extremely Well in Three Dimensions

Having long since grown bored of the tired old Kirby formula, Kirby and the Forgotten Land has brought a much needed change to a series that’s grown a bit stale.  Not so very long ago, I reviewed the game’s demo, and I’ve now returned to talk about my full experience with the pink puffball’s new 3D adventure!

Miitopia Returns for Part 5 on Virtual Bastion

Miitopia is back, the cute and silly RPG where all of the roles are played by Mii characters, including the Dark Lord, who has been stealing everyone’s faces and putting them on monsters!  This time, we’ll be exploring several new lands as we seek out an even greater threat, Darker Lord Temmie!

Last, but not least, the Duck’s Access Key is: 5MKGH6B.  The available characters that I’ve made at the moment are: Crispin Whytehead and Dr. Loboto from Psychonauts, Swaine from Ni no Kuni, and Medli and Ghirahim from The Legend of Zelda series!

The Duck Dreams of Safety Behind Locked Doors

The nights of June 14 and 15, 2022, I had two very similar dreams, leading me to ponder whether or not I should take some deeper meaning from them.  In the first dream, a friend was visiting my house (which was unlike anywhere I’ve ever actually lived).  She and I went to my room to do something fun, the details of which I forget, but our excitement turned to fear when a bad person living with us became aggravated.  I can’t remember too well what he was upset about or what he was trying to do, but we locked the door and proceeded to stare at it in terror, hoping with bated breath that he wouldn’t get inside and harm us.  Eventually, the feeling of danger passed, but the unease didn’t fully dissipate.

Saving My Friends in Miitopia

As I make my way through Miitopia, the cute and silly RPG where you choose the faces of every character in the game, my next goal was to travel through the volcanic region of Karkaton, at the end of which we explored the castle of Dark Lord Mr. Bean!  Along the way, my ever-expanding team and I rescued all of my past pals, starting with the third member of every team and ending with my very first ally, Psychonauts’ very own Crispin Whytehead.  Oh, how I missed my tiny, ugly dude!

Popin’ Cookin’ Donuts Review

A short while ago, I reviewed the Popin’ Cookin’ food kit called Sweets Party, in which I created multiple tiny desserts using powders mixed with water.  At the time of purchase, I had also gotten a second kit for creating tiny donuts.  As a big fan of these ring-shaped treats, I had high hopes for this one, even if I tried to keep my expectation of the flavors in the realm of the reasonable.

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince – Demo Review

A few months ago, I reviewed the demo for Trine 2, a side-scrolling puzzle-platformer where you play as three unique characters, Amadeus the wizard, Pontius the knight, and Zoya the thief.  Recently, I had the pleasure of playing the demo for the much more recent Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince.

12 Years of Blogging!

Well, another year has passed, and considering I like to keep things as upbeat as possible, let’s start with the positives.  One of the biggest things that happened this year was reaching 1,000 subscribers on our Virtual Bastion YouTube channel, which qualifies us to join the YouTube Partner Program!  This opens up various benefits, including the ability to monetize our videos with ads!  We’re keeping ads to a minimum right now because the channel is still small, but it’s a pretty neat milestone, nonetheless!

Popin’ Cookin’ Sweets Party Review

Recently, Mother Duck and I have been rewatching several of Brutalmoose’s videos on Youtube where he puts together various Popin’ Cookin’ food kits, a trio of videos where he assembles miniature burgers, takoyaki, and gummies.  While they never turned out particularly delicious, they looked like a pretty cute and fun diversion that we just had to try for ourselves.  We ended up buying two kits of the sweeter variety, as they seem to be more edible than their savory counterparts.  Our first choice was Sweets Party, which would allow us to create five tiny treats.

Wanderjahr: Demo Review

Wanderjahr is a cute and colorful JRPG with a deceptive level of difficulty.  In fact, the game’s subtitle is “Try Again or Walk Away”, which seems like a clear challenge to the player.  Are you going to try again and figure out where you went wrong…or give up?  Well, considering I took the latter route, you might be able to infer that the alternative option wasn’t super appealing.
