Yakuza 0 Blues
Posted August 05, 2018 by EmP

I want so hard to love Yakuza 0 now it's got a very fairly priced PC release, but it actively fights me every step of the way. For one, it's buggy as hell. You have to actively trick it just to get the bloody thing running.

I installed it, and it crashed seconds later. Uninstalled, ran it, same thing. Tried numerous fixes and eventually got it to boot up by unplugging my gamepad. Second loading screen say "Real Yakuza uses gamepads"

Digital Game Pricing Really Frustrates Me Sometimes
Posted March 11, 2018 by pickhut

So with Vermintide 2, a Left 4 Dead-style game, recently released, I wanted to see if the first game, End Times - Vermintide, was available on the PS4. The first place I checked was the PS Store, and it showed up in the search results! I clicked it... and it was $39.99. The game came out on October 4, 2016.

GameStop is terrible at listing their exclusive games...
Posted January 23, 2018 by pickhut

With Secret of Mana receiving a North American physical PS4 release exclusive only at GameStop next month, I decided to snoop around their website for the past couple weeks. I knew they've had a couple physical exclusive titles (in NA, at least) in the past, such as Song of the Deep, but I was surprised just how many PS4 exclusives they actually had; Duke Nukem 3D 20th Anniversary, Cities Skylines, and Killing Floor 2, to name the more familiar names. I was then thrown off by the number of "smaller" titles they had, such as Constructor (90s sim/tycoon title), a Prototype bundle of the first two games, Wuppo, and Has-Been Heroes, the latter I've only heard of for the first time while browsing GameStop.

Friday the 13th: The Game Offline Mode is Available!
Posted December 18, 2017 by pickhut

To make things "interesting," I decided to handicap myself for my first match. I equipped one of the weaker Jasons, who can't run or morph very well, set the difficulty to Hard, and fought against seven Counselor bots. This is what played out:

-0:00: Counselor literally ran into me after I made a bunch of noise. Then he ran in the house, picked up the gun... and ran into me without trying to fire.

-0:25: Counselor ran around in circles before she decided to dive in the water.

-0:40: Counselor got hit by my knife, and in retaliation, she turned around and ran into my body.

My Amazing Spoilerific Review of The Last Jedi
Posted December 17, 2017 by pickhut

(spoiler spaces, because you can still see this when you enter my main blog page)









Thought it was fine. Maybe a bit too many space battle scenes.

Liked that they fleshed out Poe's character this time. Actually, I'm surprised how developed they made him in a film where tons of other stuff is happening. Went from a hot-headed, but well-meaning, pilot who constantly thought blowing stuff up all the time was the solution, to knowing better by the end of the film. (continued below)

Dead by Daylight: Makes You Feel Bad for the Killers
Posted July 28, 2017 by pickhut

I have been playing online multiplayer titles for years and years and years. I have been through several Halos, GTAs, a couple niche titles, big titles, and what not. I have received my share of "hate" messages and mic "harassment" because the other players were mad that they lost. This is to be expected when you dive into online multiplayer. I have accepted this.

Trials and Tribulations with Friday the 13th: The Game
Posted June 15, 2017 by pickhut

Bought Friday the 13th: The Game on May 26.

Played a considerable amount of online matches over its launch weeks, right through the nightmare that was its database/server issues.

Wrote seven paragraphs into a review.

Intentionally wrote seven paragraphs into a review I knew I wasn't going to finish, because I don't have a concrete verdict of the game.

I don't think I've ever been in this type of situation with a review before, as far I as I can recall. I actually heavily considered not reviewing Friday the 13th: The Game after the disastrous first weekend with the game where getting into ONE match took anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes. And when I finally got in, there was always a 50/50 chance the host would quit, drop-kicking the other players back to the title screen.

I need to stop forgetting and remembering Limited Run Games exist...
Posted May 23, 2017 by pickhut

Because when I'm in forgetful mode, I'm 100% fine. But when I remember, I immediately go to the website, and see all the potential purchases I could have rushed for....

It's soul-crushing seeing a physical PS4 version of Dariusburst in the Sold-Out section. It hurts.

Oh well.

Back to # game.
