Did you know Darkwing Duck isn’t actually set in the DuckTales universe ? I know Launchpad McQuack is here, but, according to the creators (source), they are separate. And on that bombshell.

Let’s get dangerous, with the crimefighting mallard! Continue reading

Bucky O’Hare. Konami (1992) Nintendo

The site has become a bit Capcom heavy, so I am going to try upping the Konami output for the month with Konami Month.

I don’t remember Bucky O’Hare. I knew of it as a kid, and I had some of the toys, but after recently watching the 13 episodes that were made for TV I realise I had no recollection of it.
