If you’re a fan of the Haunted Mansion, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with the infamous Hatbox Ghost. This mysterious figure was originally intended to be a part of the ride, but he was removed shortly after the Haunted Mansion opened to mortals like you and me. His brief appearance caused some confusion and also gave rise to a rather intriguing legend. Had anyone really seen this ghoulish Hatbox Ghost or was he a mere hallucination? For a ride revolving around a haunted estate inhabited by 999 “happy haunts”, it was all the more chilling for one of these ghosts to have seemingly vanished without a trace. To this day, they say that no record remains of what became of the original Hatbox Ghost figure. Of course, that’s not the end of the story, nor is it quite the beginning.

You’ve read my posts. You’ve listened to me jabber on whilst playing random games on Youtube. You’ve seen me in full cosplay regalia. And yet, even so, the Duck of Indeed has remained an elusive creature, only spotted briefly during full moons, eclipses, and if you happen to visit a Subway at just the right time. If you take a picture of the Duck of Indeed, it, just like any photo taken of a Bigfeet or a UFO, turns out blurred and uncertain. Does the Duck of Indeed even exist? Has it all merely been a strange and unsettling dream!
How does a Duck even type when birds don’t have thumbs? Do such questions not unsettle you! Continue reading The Duck of Indeed…Now in HD
In recent weeks, I have been meaning to make a comeback on my personal Duck of Indeed Youtube channel. And how exactly does a Duck go about planning such an endeavor, you might be asking? With spreadsheets. Yes, the work behind creating videos for Youtube, at least for me, involves color-coded charts and to-do lists and schedules. I never realized before how much of a data-obsessed duck I am until I looked back on all my work and reminisced over how much fun it all was. That’s right, charts are fun. For most, I would suspect these kinds of things would be a tedious chore, but for me, data is a hobby.
While I have plans for more complex videos in the future, that will all have to wait until I have the skills and the technology to do it. (I found a $350 camera for $100 on Amazon if you buy the pink version. So tempting.) In the meantime, I already have roughly a year’s worth of simpler videos planned out, with dates and everything. I have been busy! These videos will include readings of my fan fiction, starting with my first collection of short stories. (I break my stories into groups of 100,000 words; collection 1 was finished a few years ago, and collection 2 is still in the works.) Continue reading Bonus Time: Youtube Commenced!
Occasionally, I like to look through the list of games on current or recent consoles to see if there are any obscure games that sound interesting. Back when the Wii was still part of the “current” category of consoles, I came upon a game called Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon. If you have been following my gameplay series for it on our Youtube channel, then it will come as no surprise that I did finally get around to playing the game. In actuality, a big motivation for buying the game was due to the fact that it looked like an interesting game to test out my brand new Live Gamer Portable capture card. It wasn’t too long, so it wasn’t a big commitment, and it looked a bit spooky, which could create some good reactions. And the $20 price tag on Amazon helped a lot, too.
Nevertheless, I heard some negative things about the game before I bought it, namely the issue with weapons randomly breaking and monotonous levels later in the game. While I can largely agree with these complaints, neither of these issues were the game’s greatest crimes. But, I’ll get to that soon. Continue reading Trusting the Story
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
In the past, I believe I posted a few, well, posts about some videos I had uploaded to Youtube, namely some gameplay videos of me screaming as I got pursued by Slender Man. Yeah. It was scary stuff. It’s also possible I posted about some readings I did of some of my fan fiction, but it’s possible I didn’t. If not, forget I said anything. Seriously, don’t watch those. They’re rather…not that good. Continue reading UWG Expands to Youtube
