I've changed my name from pickhut to dementedhut
Posted January 10, 2022 by dementedhut

Just wanted to make a small, quick post about it in case anyone is confused.

Quick, short reasons why:

-I've had the name since the very, VERY early 00s on various sites, message boards, and online gaming accounts, but I just got tired of using it. Also, from my experience, it's very easy for people to make fun of the name when they see it for the first time. ("Hey, it's Pizza Hut!" "Oh, hey dickbutt!")

So I finally got around to publishing another book...
Posted August 22, 2021 by honestgamer

This is a video game site, so I try not to post often about personal things unrelated, even though this is my blog. However, this is one of those times when I'm going to make an exception because how could I not?

As this post's title notes, I've published another book. The last time I did that was in the year 2000, when this site was much smaller and (as far as I can recall) I didn't know any of you who are likely to read this post today. A lot can change in over 20 years.

Watched Mortal Kombat at last
Posted August 03, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

Well I finally got to see Mortal Kombat which came out early this year and I will say its pretty darn good. It does have its flaws and plotholes here and there, but the fact that it includes what many of us wanted it in a movie adaptation of the intensely violent game such as gore and fatalities made it quite special and hit me right into my nostalgic, beating heart as Kano holds it out the fresh cavity of my being.

Bullies befriending bullies
Posted July 30, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

By now everyone knows how horrid people on twitter and anything related to social media can be. Everything from bullies harassing you and those who give you a false sense of security by siding with you as long as you always agree with what they say and think, otherwise they will turn on you and even side with said psychos attacking you online out of spite.

Warnings about these apps and devices
Posted July 09, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

I will start with this harmful "weather app" that suddenly installed in my phone device without my consent nor me ever remembering downloading from that google play site. The app's name is Weather Home and so far this is the icon it uses to present itself. If you suddenly have this on you might as well factory reset your device since there is no way to get it uninstalled otherwise and you will not be able to disable nor force it to stop working on your phone either. The app will override anything else on your phone, including your phone app to make calls, spamming your screen with news articles and recommendations to download more apps, as well as adding bloatware which you can't remove as well unless you reset your phone as I stated. Believe me when I say I tried anything I could to g

Its Sonic's 30th Birthday
Posted June 24, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

Yesterday was the celebrated 30th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog when he first debuted on the SEGA Genesis with his self titled videogame. SEGA incorporated a live symphony show on his honor, playing various tracks from games old and recent. While most of said tracks just flew over my head, it was a show which any other Sonic fan appreciated and celebrated along.

Sonic the Hedgehog is a platform game developed by Sonic Team and published by Sega for the Sega Genesis home video game console. The first game in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, it was released in North America in June 1991 and in PAL regions and Japan the following month.- Wikipedia

The symphony show is still being broadcasted and can be seen on youtube-

Square-Enix announces a Final Fantasy 9 Animated series
Posted June 21, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

With the disdainful performance at this year's E3, one could hope for something that would at least keep them from remembering such experience and I do think this would be it.

It has been a while since there's been an animated series based on the popular roleplaying games, the last being Final Fantasy Unlimited, along with the other CGI laden side stories like Advent Children and Enclave. Its quite the surprise that FF9 has been chosen to create a new animated series, but one I welcome as much as I would any that they would be interested in showing. As for it following the game's story or continuing it, or even making it a prequel of sorts its quite uncertain, as the only knows that IGN has been given is a possible release date with production starting at the end of this year.

The Bitcoin bubble.
Posted June 18, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

I may not fully understand this thing, but I don't trust it either. Conceited "business savvy" young men and others like JACK from twitter may go on strutting about it, but I have read many a word on the dangers this thing could lead if everyone trusts it that much. In short I believe this is yet another faulty business act which is not fully understood even by those conceited savvy hipsters telling you its the future, much like in that time when everyone with an internet connection in the early days would be urged to buy internet stock until the bubble finally burst and everything fell down into an abyss.

Nintendo unveils Metroid Dread at E3
Posted June 15, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

Nintendo surprised all with a new Metroid game shown at E3, and not just any Metroid game either, a SEQUEL to the original series, continuing Samus' story after the events of Metroid Fusion so it seems. But don't quote me on that, because it still clear if this is a sequel or a prequel on the established canon, however the way Samus looks here, sporting a suit similar to her last space outing in the GBA, it would come to reason that it is indeed a sequel overall.

DOOM
Posted June 13, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

DOOM was released in 2005 with high expectations from fans of the overly famous FPS game series but with little acclaim due to the way it was produced. It centers on the latest installment of the series, mainly DOOM 3, which abandons most of the Biblical demonic lore in lieu of scientific mutations and zombified foes.

The movie is dark. Not in a figurative way but the fact that most of the film is just shrouded in darkness, hard to see anything as protagonists fire at mostly nothing and scream all about the place while being taken off one by one by ugly rendered CGI monsters. Starring Dwayne Johnson the Rock, who is not exactly the main hero despite what the movie poster would let anyone know,

The Castlevania Season 4 trailer
Posted May 09, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

Since April 29, Netxlix's youtube channel has been displaying the 4th and allegedly final season of the Castlevania series, on which Trevor, Sypha, and Alucard once again try to repel any evil that has been plaguing the land ever since Dracula's defeat back in the first season. To what is shown here, it seems some are readily trying to resurrect the evil count, as it was hinted back on season 3, with other vampires setting up secret worship altars to do the deed. The trailer also showcases Carmilla and her growing ambition to dominate the world by using the devil forgemaster Hector to create her army of monsters, while Isaac is on his own still loyal to Dracula and seemingly also waging war on the human populace.

Jason's amazing direct sale of PS4 games
Posted April 28, 2021 by honestgamer

Recently, I moved from one apartment to another and the process made me realize I have way too much... stuff. A lot of that stuff, admittedly, is games. And I do like games. I like owning a lot of them physically, even. But I've realized I need to be more selective about what I buy and keep, and I've accepted that a lot of the great games in my collection would give greater joy to other collectors while I shuffle priorities. So I purchased a lot of digital versions of games I own, and I went a little nuts and now I need to sell some stuff in a hurry.

Krystal and the failure on female character development
Posted April 25, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

Krystal and the failure on female character development
You already know that Krystal was originally a RARE character before Nintendo got their greasy hands on her. Besides that, and thanks to the original prototype Dinosaur Planet game you also have learned that her role in said game was a whole lot more than just being captured and sitting around until the big man of the game Fox McCloud showed up and rescued her.
