This weekend, I’ll be continuing (finishing) the incredibly mundane task of switching my work-related notes from Catch Notes to Evernote. Thankfully, I’ll be mixing in some DuckTales: Remastered to break things up. I’m curious about this game. Several of my friends in the gaming business have been playing it and most of them are raving about it. I have fond memories of the original, but it’s been so long that I don’t remember why it was so much fun back in the day. Hopefully it’s a fun-filled escapade that blends classic platform gameplay with spruced up graphics. My fear is that it won’t be that good and will make me think, “Why did I like the original DuckTales so much in the first place?” Yes, that totally qualifies as a first-world problem.
How about you? What’s on your weekend playlist?

I think you just have fond memories of the Duck Tales theme song.
I’ve seen mixed reviews online.
The problem is nostalgia. If it’s reviewed by a 30-some-year-old, it is inevitably compared to the original, if a younger, 20-something-year-old guy reviews it, then it’s a brand-new game with nothing to compare it to.
It’s really fascinating how past memories cloud our present judgment. Still, I suspect if the game is a giant, steaming turd, it would be universal. But from my reading, it seems to be fun enough, which means that nostalgia is the line between “good” and “great.”
