Since last year, the Duck has returned to the piano with a renewed determination. In that time, I have taught myself six songs, all of which I recorded and uploaded to our Virtual Bastion Youtube channel. Those videos have also been posted on my blog and listed below, for added convenience and exposure. Continue reading Listmas 2018: Piano Songs (Past and Future)
The slow-paced madness that is the 30 days of video game topics…thingy continues with yet another head-scratcher. My favorite protagonist. Again, being asked what my favorite is of anything is always quite troublesome. My favorites change constantly, and as difficult as it was to decide upon my favorite villain, as was the topic of day 17, it gets even more difficult when I’m asked about my favorite protagonist, as I really don’t think I’ve ever had a clear favorite when it came to the good guys. Until recently. (Just gonna warn you right now…Undertale spoilers ahead). Continue reading Day 18: Favorite Protagonist
Ever since playing Undertale, the Duck has been inspired to return to several abandoned hobbies, piano and drawing. As far as the former goes, the first song I decided to learn was It’s Raining Somewhere Else. Fortunately, there are some very useful tutorials out there on Youtube. The one I used is below: Continue reading Piano Time: It’s Raining Somewhere Else and Organization XIII
You may have heard of an indie PC game inspired by EarthBound called Undertale. The game’s praise, along with its relation to a SNES game I absolutely love, made it a must-play. Though, I must admit that I am typically quite reluctant to download PC games because, well, my computer is weird sometimes. When I found the game had recently been released on the PS4, the time for excuses was over. I set out to play Undertale…a thought that, even now, fills me with determination.
Mother Duck often asks why video games are filled with so much fighting. That is not to say she believes video games are violent things that are destroying our world’s youth like the media would have us believe. In fact, she beat up plenty of 16-bit baddies during the SNES era, so she is no stranger to video game, ahem, “violence”. Even so, it is a valid question. Continue reading A Game About Mercy: Undertale
For the longest time, I have been meaning to play a positively intriguing PC game called Undertale, an RPG that gives players the choice to kill or show mercy to their enemies. Problem was, I’m not big into downloading games onto my computer, so it was pretty exciting when I found that the game had become available on the PS4. I went into the game with high expectations, and I was not disappointed, as Undertale quickly became one of my most beloved games of all time. Alongside innovative gameplay, some rather hilarious humor, and delightful characters, the game also sports a truly spectacular soundtrack. Below, I have listed my top seven songs from the game. (Psst…I actually downloaded four of these as ringtones for my phone….) Continue reading Top 8 Songs from Undertale
During my recent adventures on Deviant Art, I stumbled upon yet more wonderful Undertale fan art from Zarla. Apparently, DA member Jazaaboo had written lyrics for Papyrus’ battle theme, Bonetrousle, and Zarla created a fittingly adorable comic out of it. Various people have sung this song on Youtube, and of course, I simply needed to do this, as well! Behold, the Duck’s okay singing abilities and equally as okay Adobe Premiere skills! I’m pretty much an expert on panning and zooming at this point. And be sure to watch out for Undertale Duck…. Continue reading An Undertale Comic Dub: My Favorite Holiday
As you may recall, I recently joined Deviant Art. My first order of business was following a few of my favorite artists (it’s called “watching”, actually, which sounds a little creepy), one of them being Zarla. She’s drawn a huge amount of Undertale comics, including an entire series called Handplates, which was pretty darn awesome. If there are any Undertale fans reading this right now, and you’re interested in Sans, Papyrus, and Gaster, then I’d definitely recommend checking it out.
