Greetings, one and all! We’ve circled back around to the end of another month, and that means it’s time to take a look back at our month in YouTube videos. Although February is a short month, we haven’t been short on bringing you all the gaming action that we possibly can. (And more’s on the way!) So with that, let’s get on with the highlights!
First off, we have to congratulate the Duck of Indeed for completing her playthrough of Donkey Kong Country 3 at the end of January. She’s been super dedicated to bringing you the DKC series for several months, and the videos that she’s made have been awesome!

Welcome back, one and all, to our final YouTube Highlights post of 2016!

We certainly hope that the trend continues into 2017, because we’ve had an utterly grand time with the channel. And with that, let’s get to this month’s highlights!

With Listmas taking place in the chilly grip of wintertime, it’s only natural that some of our lists reflect this icy time of year. We’ve already covered snowy levels and chilly characters in past years, so it’s high time we discussed eight chilly songs that will surely have you buttoning up your coats and seeking out a hot mug of cocoa.

Happy Thanksgiving! (Or, happy Thursday if Thanksgiving isn’t your thing.) Though it’s a holiday for us, we’re not taking a break from posting our monthly highlights from YouTube. If anything, we’re more than thankful for our subscribers and supporters there, and here…and everywhere. Thanks to you, you..and YOU! To everyone who’s motivated us to keep writing and playing. We hope that what we offer lends a little joy. 🙂 Speaking of which, November was a rousing good month for us video-wise, so let’s get on with the highlights!
First and foremost, we are incredibly pleased to have introduced this month, care of The Duck of Indeed, two brand new Let’s Plays: Ratchet & Clank (PS4) and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask! We hope you’ll follow along as The Duck takes on these exciting titles.

How many enemies in the Legend of Zelda series do you consider to be actually frightening? There are plenty of bizarre and unsettling creatures to encounter: ReDeads, Wall-Masters and Dead Hands perhaps being the most notable. They creep us out and perhaps even inspire a little shiver, but can we really call them frightening? I don’t think so, because their core idea is understandable. A ReDead is just a zombie, a Wall-Master is just a mindless monster in the form of a hand, and a Dead Hand is an amalgam of reanimated corpses driven by hunger. We know what they are and what drives them, so they stop short of being truly frightening. Even the main villains of the series, though terribly powerful, don’t succeed in frightening us because they’re characters. They have goals and desires we can understand. This can be said about just about all Zelda enemies save for one: Majora. There is no explaining Majora, and that scares me.

I’ve been thinking about one of my favorite games lately, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, and though the game is near and dear to my heart, I realize now that I had forgotten about a lot of the things that made the game special. I had forgotten just how dark the game could be, just as I hadn’t remembered there being so many strange, but unique, individuals inhabiting the land of Termina. I had also nearly forgotten one of my favorite side quests in the game.
Yes, most people cite the Kafei and Anju side quest as being one of the best, and it is, but it’s not exactly “unforgettable” in the manner I typically mean when I write these posts. Rather, there is one side quest that is just so bizarre and out of place in the Zelda universe that it is the most deserving of this special mention.
