Day 22: A Game Sequel Which Disappointed You

As I slowly inch my way forward through the 30 days’ worth of video game topics, I arrive upon a pretty easy one, a game sequel which disappointed me.  One game in particular springs to mind, but since it is such an obvious choice, I also wanted to briefly discuss one of the biggest crimes a sequel can commit.  For me, anyway.  We’ll see if you agree.

Inktober 2019 Highlights Week 2

Time to share with you all the highlights from my next batch of Inktober drawings!  You may have noticed that I am slowly getting better.  My crosshatching has improved, plus I learned that large, bold areas of ink have a way of making a picture “pop”, so you’ll be seeing a bit more of that now.  As usual, you can see every one of my Inktober pictures over on Deviant Art.

Inktober 2019 Highlights Week 1

Good day, dear readers!  I decided to do Inktober this year, which is a little drawing event where you get a topic for every day in October to draw and ink, either digitally or in the traditional way.  You can start the first day of September, which means I have been giving myself two days per picture.  And let me tell you, I am feeling extremely tired from drawing far more than I’m used to….

Day 20: Favorite Video Game Genre

Okay, so we’re two-thirds of the way through the 30 days’ worth of video game posts.  And I still haven’t found a more eloquent way of describing that.  Anyway, we’ve got another “what’s your favorite something-or-other” topic to discuss, my favorite game genre.  As usual, I find this to be a pretty difficult question indeed because I have a wide variety of favorite games spanning several different genres. Continue reading Day 20: Favorite Video Game Genre

Spoopy Music: Mad Monster Mansion

The Duck has recorded another song on the piano, this time a tune quite befitting this most spooky of holidays, the church music from Banjo-Kazooie’s Mad Monster Mansion!  Though I am uncertain what the monsters are mad about, I do know that this song was really fun to play, even if the faster part at the end took quite a bit of practice to get right.  It is also totally truthful and not fanciful storytelling that Motzand himself taught it to me, and you can all believe this without question because I am a very honest and trustworthy Duck who has never given anyone any reason to doubt me….

Piano Time: Song of Healing and Clock Town

I’ve got two more piano videos for you guys today, both of which come from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, one of my dearest and most favorite games of all time.  The songs in question are the Song of Healing and Clock Town.  I’m particularly proud of the video I put together for the Song of Healing.  I wanted it to tell a story, and I think it did?  Hope you guys enjoy!

Coming in Three Days

Hey everyone, I’m interrupting my usually scheduled blog posts to present a trailer video I made for an upcoming gameplay series starting this Wednesday, November 23, on our United We Game Youtube channel.  It’s a very special game that is very dear to my heart, and I can only hope a good number of people decide to join me in this adventure!  And please excuse my video editing skills.  I’m still learning!

The Great Mysteries of Rayman 2

After spending the last several hundred hours of my game time playing RPGs (no joke), I needed a break.  The only games currently in my backlog at the moment are Final Fantasy IV and V, so I decided I would instead need to revisit something I had played before.  Being in quite a Rayman mood after replaying Rayman Origins, I decided to connect the good, ol’ N64 and replay some of my old favorites, Rayman 2: The Great Escape and the Banjo-Kazooie games.  (Obviously, Banjo-Kazooie in no way relates to Rayman, but I may as well play them while the console’s plugged in.)

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve played this game, but I didn’t find it one bit less enjoyable than every time prior.  I mean it, I had a great time with this game, and there is one thing that always struck me about this game that really makes it stand out from anything else I’ve ever played.  The mystery. Continue reading The Great Mysteries of Rayman 2

A Ducky Halloween 2015: Fun With FNAF and Jano

Happy late Halloween, everyone!  I had a pretty special one this year, and you might know why.  First off, the night before Halloween was United We Game’s very first live stream on Youtube, where I spent about an hour playing the horrifying PC game, Five Nights at Freddy’s.  For those of you who didn’t get a chance to check it out when it was live, I have provided the link below for you to view at your leisure if you so choose.  Please do.  Just keep in mind that it doesn’t officially start until about 8 minutes in when I start my spooky intro.  The time before that is just testing. Continue reading A Ducky Halloween 2015: Fun With FNAF and Jano

Top Songs from Quest 64

“Quest 64” is not one of the better games out there.  Heck, among games that start with Q, it probably doesn’t even rank very high.  The gameplay was tedious, the story was nearly nonexistent.  And yet, one thing they did right was the music, and this game does have some good songs that are worth sharing.  Behold, my top songs from Quest 64!  (Before I begin, however, does anyone else think the battle theme for this game is awfully similar to the one from Final Fantasy VII?…) Continue reading Top Songs from Quest 64
