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.

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.

Y'all need John Wick 2 in your lives if you haven't watched it yet.
Posted February 13, 2017 by pickhut

I very much enjoyed the first film back when I got its home release, and while I looked forward to a sequel, I was always pretty skeptical if it would live up to the standards of the original film. Just saw Chapter 2 earlier today, and this movie is a fantastic action film. I didn't think the sequel would outdo the action scenes in the first, at best be its equal, but the stuff on display here is a spectacle. The gun and fight choreography is jaw-dropping at times, and much credit goes to, and this also applies to the first film, the lack of shakey cam; you clearly see everything happening on screen, and for the most part, the actors are actually going at it with each other.

Just a couple more remarks about Resident Evil 7 (spoilers)

It's a very small thing that doesn't really bring down the game in any significant way, but the one thing I despised the most about RE7 is when it forced you to make the choice of using the one remaining serum on either Mia or Zoe. This shouldn't have been a moment in the game. This shouldn't have been a choice that the player had to make. The entire reason Ethan is there is to find her wife, Mia. You should choose her by default. It doesn't make any sense within the context of the plot NOT to choose her.

PSA: Don't buy Double Dragon IV
Posted January 30, 2017 by pickhut

The game came out today, so I was curious. I just got through the first five stages and it's a complete joke. The gameplay is absolutely flat and it feels like this was made over one weekend. It feels like a cash grab that plays on people's nostalgia. I'll probably add more after I beat the game.

Edit: I just noticed if you walk all the way to the bottom of the screen, no one can hit you. This is a damn trainwreck.

Edit 2: NO, SERIOUSLY. YOU NEED TO SEE THIS.
