This Duck Hunt pinball machine is a beauty


11:45 AM on 04.12.2013



Ah, Duck Hunt. If you think about it, the lightgun NES classic is actually the very first first-person shooter. That explains so much! I'm terrible at modern day FPS games, so it makes sense that I was bad at Duck Hunt. I guess you could think of today's aim assist as being similar to putting the lightgun directly on the TV screen. I did that.

Getting back on track, Arcade Heroes pointed us to this outstanding Duck Hunt pinball machine. Creator Skit-B Pinball calls it an electromechanical/PC hybrid. I call it beautiful. The pixel-ish ducks and the bright colors instantly won me over, but it's the ball-to-screen tie-in that I really love. Bouncing shoots at the ducks -- hit the right target and a duck goes down. Lose a ball and that damned dog laughs at you again.

It looks as if they're just working on Duck Hunt Pinball for fun, and that it won't be released. That's a shame. I'd dump rolls of quarters into this machine.

I didn't expect this to be my favorite AGDQ 2015 speedrun

First, a quick thank you to Destructoid reader lunarwhale for bringing this Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels speedrun to my attention. I naively thought I'd watch a minute or two, tops, right before going to bed, but ended...more

Dark water and the things below give me the shivers

If we're all confessing our gaming-related fears, I might as well share mine. I can't stand the water. More specifically, I can't stand what lives under the water. If there is ever a section of a game that will make me want to stop playing, it probably involves getting your toes wet and taking a little swim with, well, whatever. I can thank Super Mario Bros. 3 for this phobia. more
