And now, I continue poetry on the topic of my obvious terror of “Zelda” characters with various limericks. Along with a game. Drum roll please. Let’s play…Guess the Monster! Guess which creatures my limericks are describing! And don’t look at the tags, you cheaters! Continue reading Zelda Limericks

Lament of the ReDead

A series of four ReDead haiku. Enjoy.  If you dare…  Uwa-ha-hack cough!

Haiku #1

Wrinkled old zombies

They are really just Gibdos

Without the clothes on

Haiku #2

They may be dead, but

They know how to boogie when

They’re not eating you

Haiku #3

Eyes rotted away

Mouth never closed; quit screaming

You’ll wake the neighbors

Haiku #4

Or maybe they scream

‘Cause they’re more afraid of you

Bring fire, just in case

Below, I present to you all the Duck’s contribution to our collection of delightfully spooky poems in anticipation of Halloween. This is a Slender Man poem I published not too long ago on fanfiction.net and which I think would be quite fitting for this month’s festivities.  Without further ado: Trees.  By the Duck.

Guest Post: Zombies are Not Scary


A group of the bloggers here at “United We Game” have been sharing posts with each other on the topic of what’s scary in video games in celebration of October and Halloween. Behold the Duck’s thoughts on the topic, originally a guest post on “Cheeese Toastie and Video Games”.

This week I bring to you the second guest post of the month, again on the topic of horror. The blogger I’m featuring this week is the always entertaining and insightful Duck of gaming blog The Duck of Indeed and one of the admins of United We Game. Remember to check out both of those sites for more awesome gaming stuff! Also, remember to check out my post on his blog when it goes up. I’ll reblog it here over the weekend too. Without further ado, over to Duck! 

This month, the bloggers over at “United We Game” have been participating in simul-posts most suited to the month that Halloween calls home, where we write guest posts on our fellow bloggers’, well, blogs on the topic of what’s scary in video games.  Unlike many others, the Duck is not very familiar with the horror genre, but I still have…

Review a Bad Game: Porky Pig’s Haunted Holiday

No matter how skilled you are at picking good video games, once you amass enough of them, you invariably end up with some downright rotten ones.  So when preparing for this post, I listed by console the games I have that are no good.  After marking out the ones that are really should be categorized as more mediocre than truly awful, I eventually narrowed it down enough to where one game caught my eye.  This is a game I wrote a post on years ago on my own blog because it is that bad, and it would make a perfect topic for Review a Bad Game Day.

This particular game is “Porky Pig’s Haunted Holiday”, an old game for the Super Nintendo, which comes as no surprise to me because, as great as the SNES was, I ended up with a good amount of terrible games on it.  I’ve learned since then, and I make such mistakes less often.  Nevertheless, somehow I ended up with this scummy thing and, for whatever reason, I still have it, when it really should be incinerated, and then have its ashes incinerated, which should then be launched into the sun.
