YouTube Highlights: Weekly Edition #3

Thank you all for joining us on this lovely Friday (Happy St. Patrick’s Day to those celebrating!) for another look back at our week in YouTube. All in all, it was a solid week. Even with the end of the cutest game in the world (probably), Kirby’s Return to Dreamland, we ventured on with a number of our continuing Let’s Plays. Keep reading and watching to see how things are progressing!


Ratchet & Clank (PS4)

How many games can you name that ask players to gather brains? Like, actual…brains?? (And not the zombie kind either.) Not many, I imagine. But Ratchet & Clank isn’t just any game, now is it? As The Duck proves, it truly isn’t.


Super Paper Mario

Where oh where is The Duck in Super Paper Mario? She’s in the twisty, turn-y Count’s castle. meeting up with Merlon, Mimi, and taking on ALL the bad guys!


Super Mario Galaxy

The Duck has also been working hard in Super Mario Galaxy, having recently traveled to the Gusty Garden Galaxy.  In this particular stage, she battles not with foes (thou there are many) but with physics! Well, with gravity, to be precise.  What do physics look like in space?


Yoshi’s Woolly World

I’m over halfway done with Yoshi’s Woolly World, and it usually at this point in about any game that I start to question my sanity…at least a little. Yarn Yoshi’s cuteness can’t make me a better player, but I still manage to bumble and stumble through, somehow.


The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

In wrapping up this rundown, let’s see how The Duck is doing in Majora’s Mask. With Goht (Snowhead Temple’s boss) dispatched and the weather looking much better, it’s time for Link to take care of a few things.  You know, like Spring cleaning, only with swords and gun powder.


Thanks for watching, and join us next week for our next video wrap-up!

How will you be getting Mass Effect: Andromeda?

For as long as I’ve played Mass Effect, I’ve only ever played it on the Xbox 360. I imagine that this may be the case for many players, as well. After all, the first Mass Effect was an Xbox exclusive for a long time.  It was ported to PC about a year after it’s release, but its port to the PlayStation didn’t happen for five years! And by then, which would have been 2012, Mass Effect 2 had been released. I played that on the Xbox 360. And then, when Mass Effect 3 was released on all platforms, I still played it on the Xbox 360. And just recently, when I got the full trilogy…yep, you guessed it…I got the Xbox 360 version. Nothing against the PlayStation, mind you — I heard that the PS3 version of the trilogy looks pretty nice – it’s just that, well, when I play Mass Effect, I like having that 360 controller in my hand.  It feels comfortable and right.

Once I decided to commit myself to Mass Effect: Andromeda, I was faced with a slight dilemma. Harboring such comfortableness (read: stick-in-the-mudness) with Mass Effect on the Xbox, would I, or should I therefore have to get Andromeda on the Xbox One?

Phoenix Wright: Ace Update!

For reasons that still aren’t entirely clear to me, I was recently compelled to start Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. And what a strange ride is has been! Since my first post on the game, I’ve completed two more cases: Turnabout Samurai and Turnabout Goodbyes. If the first two cases were, for me, an introduction to the games mechanics and style, then the second two cases proved just how tricky (and weird) a defense lawyering is! Well…in the Phoenix Wright universe, anyway. (Maybe in the real world too?)

Playing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is largely like watching a mystery novel unfold. Each case presents you with a cast of characters and a grouping of evidence that you must then follow and use, respectively, to prove your client’s innocence. (I learned quite abruptly that getting a “guilty” verdict is akin to losing a life. The game makes you start over and try again.)

Okay Mass Effect: Andromeda, You Got Me

Regular readers might have caught a post I wrote a c ouple months ago in which I was a little down on Mass Effect: Andromeda. Unfortunately, I was harboring some bad thoughts about what Andromeda was purported to be back in early December, and that something was, as I perceived it, a mere shade of what I had hoped from a new Mass Effect adventure.

Well, here we are now, just twenty days away from Andromeda’s release, and…yep, I have to admit that I’ve changed my tune. I am now, fully and without exception, all aboard the Andromeda train. Woo woo!

Saturday Video Round Up: Feb 19 – 25

Hey, look! Saturday is here and that means the Round Up is here to (hopefully) entertain and delight you. For those new here, the Video Round Up collects the best trailers and gameplay videos from the past week and puts them all here for your viewing pleasure. There’s a lot to get to this week, so here’s just a small sampling of what is waiting for you after the jump.

It was a big week for BioWare as a number of Mass Effect Andromeda videos came out and for myself, increasing the hype meter considerably. The first video shows off more single player gameplay, along with how the upgrade and skill tree process works this time around. A second video introduces us the Lexi T’Perro, the chief medic and the first person players will meet. Lastly, a third video which dropped on Friday has security chief, Liam Costa, discussing weapon training.

Sony’s first major AAA title for 2017 Horizon Zero Dawn finally launches next week and a handful of new trailers also arrived showing off more of the gorgeous open world, combat, and exploration players will be taking part in.

I’ve also got new videos for Nier: Automata, Injustice 2, Nintendo Switch 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…
