Youtube Time: The Duck Plays: Rayman Origins-Go With the Flow (Lum Medal)

Behold the newest installment of the Duck’s weekly Rayman Origins gameplay videos!  Today, you shall watch in awe as I get the Lum Medal in Go With the Flow.  Not really, though.  This level is pretty darn easy.  I think it’s the first level I ever got a Lum Medal in when I first played the game.  I also think this one’s pretty.  Water is nice.

Day 10: Best Gameplay

Whenever I am low on ideas, it is always easy to fall back on my trusty 30-day video game topics.  While it was meant to take place over the course of 30 days, I have completely broken the rules and don’t even care.  I’m a rebel like that.  I don’t even heed the expiration date on ketchup.  I’m that bad.  I swear it tastes fine after a year.  It really does.  Tomatoes are good for you.  Anyway, today’s topic was the one that was supposed to be meant for day ten, the game with the best gameplay.  A lot of people will likely disagree with me on this one, and maybe “best” is not quite the correct word to use here.  The game I will really be writing about is actually the game that has the most fun controls.  Like most people, I am not typically a fan of the motion controls of the Wii.  Nevertheless, I still have to make an exception because I absolutely loved the controls of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, a game which I believed used the Wiimote in the most effective way I had ever seen.

Youtube Time: The Duck Plays: Fragile Dreams-Part 7

Another Monday has arrived, and another video must be shared for Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon.  Woo hoo!  I face many trials in this video, including being forced to search for the jerk-face, Crow, getting assaulted by rogue pigeons, and getting stuck in a tight space.  Very frightening stuff.  At least we don’t have to be in the mall anymore….

The Hunt Begins Anew!

The hunt is back on everyone! “Hunt the Truth” season two kicked off earlier this week, and wasted no time getting down to business! For those who may not be aware, earlier this year Halo fans were treated to season one of “Hunt the Truth”, a 12-episode podcast chronicling the struggles of war-journalist Benjamin Giraud to expose one of the darkest secrets in the Halo universe. More specifically, Giraud is working to expose the origins of the SPARTANS and the war crimes committed by earth’s military that allowed for their creation to occur at all. Plot aside, “hunt the truth” makes for a fascinating look at SPARTAN lore by giving us the chance to see more the human element in it.

Saturday Video Round Up: September 20 – 26

The following post was submitted by Gamer Crash. See more trailers and news at!

The week is again at an end so a new Video Round Up has emerged from the crowd to entertain and delight you. We’re in the thick of the fall/holiday release schedule and as such, there’s another great batch of gameplay and trailers waiting for your eyeballs to grace them. So lets get started.

Many would say that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is one of the bigger games of October and to better get players acclimated to 19th century London, a new story based trailer was released. The trailer will also detail each of the targets Jacob and Evie are set out against. You know what they say: Know Your Enemy. Or something like that.

Rise of the Tomb Raider has the dubious task of going up against Fallout 4 when both games launch on November 10. With that said, Crystal Dynamics really look to be pulling out all the stops as Rise looks like it’s going to be a fantastic journey. Xbox One players will have a tough decision to make in November.

I’ve also got new videos for Fallout 4, Overwatch, Battleborn and so much more after the break, so come check out this week’s batch of trailers!

The full list of videos await you after the jump…

Xenoblade Chronicles is over, and I’m…happy?

In early 2013, I made an attempt to play Xenoblade Chronicles.  This was on the heels of finishing The Last Story, so I was in a JRPG mindset, and a pretty good one at that. But the timing just didn’t work out. After finding out that I’d need well over 60, 80, 100 hours just to get through XC’s main story, I set the game aside. I just didn’t have that kind of time to sink into a single game.

When the game came back into my hands on February 1, 2015, little had changed. I was as busy as ever, and I still couldn’t let go of 100 hours just for a single game. Yet, I simply couldn’t turn down the opportunity. Something had led to that moment that I couldn’t ignore or deny. Regardless of it being fate or happenstance, I had to play Xenoblade Chronicles again. Not only that…I had to complete it.
