New ‘Avatar’ Game in the Works

Eight years after the release of the massively popular film, the world of ‘Avatar’ will be getting the video game treatment once again. What’s more? The studio tackling the project will be none other than Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment, the minds behind 2016’s Tom Clancy’s: The Division.

Unforgettable: The Flying Shell of Rayman 2

I haven’t written a whole lot of posts for my Unforgettable series because something has to really stand out to me to make the list.  It has to be shocking, exciting, or just too awesome not to share with the world.  It is only fitting, then, that one of my favorite games of all time gets to star in one of these posts, Rayman 2.  To be honest, the entire Rayman series is filled with unique and unforgettable moments (for example, water skiing behind a snake), but there is one part of this game that has really stuck with me, and I find it unforgettable because it is just plain fun.

Youtube Time: The Duck Plays: Rayman Origins-Wind or Lose (Lum Medal)

Today in Rayman Origins, I get the Lum Medal in Wind or Lose (one of the many titles that sport silly puns).  There is certainly some wind in this level.  And some losing.  Especially when I kept trying to get this one coin….  Darn coin.  I cut out a lot of my attempts because I fell to my doom so many times.

The Great Mysteries of Rayman 2

After spending the last several hundred hours of my game time playing RPGs (no joke), I needed a break.  The only games currently in my backlog at the moment are Final Fantasy IV and V, so I decided I would instead need to revisit something I had played before.  Being in quite a Rayman mood after replaying Rayman Origins, I decided to connect the good, ol’ N64 and replay some of my old favorites, Rayman 2: The Great Escape and the Banjo-Kazooie games.  (Obviously, Banjo-Kazooie in no way relates to Rayman, but I may as well play them while the console’s plugged in.)

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve played this game, but I didn’t find it one bit less enjoyable than every time prior.  I mean it, I had a great time with this game, and there is one thing that always struck me about this game that really makes it stand out from anything else I’ve ever played.  The mystery.

Youtube Time: The Duck Plays: Rayman Origins-Cacophonic Chase

Today, the Duck shall take on Rayman Origins’ second Tricky Treasure, Cacophonic Chase!  You know, these are pretty fun, to be honest.  When they’re easy, that is.  The fun won’t continue.  I must enjoy it while it lasts….

Youtube Time: The Duck Plays: Rayman Origins-Best Original Score (Time Trial)

In this newest video, I get the Time Trial in Best Original Score, where I endure more suffering thanks to those wretched spiky birds.  Come on, be nice to a fellow avian creature! Continue reading Youtube Time: The Duck Plays: Rayman Origins-Best Original Score (Time Trial)

Youtube Time: The Duck Plays: Rayman Origins-Best Original Score (Lum Medal)

In this newest installment of Rayman Origins, I get the Lum Medal in Best Original Score, where I face birds, both malevolent and not, and weird, electrical wires.  No idea what that all has to do with a musical-themed desert location, but I just accept it.  It’s not the strangest thing we see in this game.
