Jerec's Games of March 2022
Posted March 31, 2022 by jerec

I didn't finish anything this month. I wasn't sure I'd even continue this monthly write-up as my focus was more split than ever. I bought an Xbox Series X this month, with a subscription to Gamepass. I've been sampling some stuff here and there. Not going to feel pressured to finish anything on Gamepass unless it really does resonate with me though. I loaded up my 360 for one last time to put all my save files in the cloud so I could get them on the Series X. The Xbox 360 is now retired, back in its box. It might prompt me to finish off some of the old 360 games I abandoned back then. Maybe.

Jerec's Games of February 2022
Posted February 28, 2022 by jerec

FINISHED

Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright (3DS)

This, I admit, took me a lot longer than it should've. And because this was marketed as three games, I get to mark my completion of one of the story paths as a game completion. I'll be back to play Conquest and Revelation in the future sometime. I don't have much to say on this. The story is pretty forgettable, but the combat is *chef kiss*

Jerec's games of January 2022

This was a pretty good month for game progress. I had the first week off, and I'm getting used to my new job so I'm not coming home so tired as often.

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!")

What the Hell Am I Getting Myself Into?

Not that long ago, I reviewed the Aldorlea-developed RPG 3 Stars of Destiny. It was nothing special. You would think I'd stay away from their stuff as a result, but instead I found myself loading up this one. I'll give this game credit: it's a cut above 3 Stars. Unfortunately, it's still nothing great...

Jerec's Games of December 2021
Posted December 31, 2021 by jerec

I've managed to keep this up for a year. I think this is about the extent I feel like writing about games these days. I have actually tried writing some reviews this year, and in an ideal world I would review every game I finished or played a lot of, but I guess that aspect of games writing doesn't interest me so much anymore. I end the year employed, and I feel lucky to have a good job particularly with this antiwork movement going on. I'm on leave right now from Christmas (back to work January 10th), so December saw a little more activity.

Games I Played This Year That Kicked Ass: 2021 Edition
Posted December 31, 2021 by JoeTheDestroyer

I don't know if it's just me, but this list feels short. I mean, in comparison to the total number of different games I played this year, this catalog feels like nothing. I blame Wild Arms 3 for soaking up so much of my time, but also my own lack of scrutiny for buying so many blah Steam titles. Thankfully, I still ran into a respectable handful of decent games, and that's gotta count for something...

Honorable Mentions: Games I Didn't Play Enough to Qualify
Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark- A solid quasi-FFTactics that fell out of my favor because it just wasn't quite what I was looking for at the time I started it. I can see myself going more thoroughly through this one down the line...

Jerec's Games of November

Gaming progress has been pretty limited for what games I did play, and more stuff has slipped through the cracks. I keep it on my list to remind myself.

Jerec's Games of October 2021
Posted October 31, 2021 by jerec

Started my new job this month. Gaming time predictably took a dive.

FINISHED

I finished nothing! I think partly because I wrapped up so many games in September, most of the below are new starts. And also the whole lack of time and being tired, thing. I was also planning to not have too many games going at once, but I got a bit carried away. Heh.

Jerec's Games of September 2021
Posted September 30, 2021 by jerec

I'll probably never have another month of gaming like this. I'm starting a new job in early October, and lockdown is hopefully ending here not long after. So this month, I really went for it. Once I'm back at work, I hope to have far fewer games in progress at one time, since that approach led to me barely completing anything until early 2020 when unemployment stuck and I went on this wonderful journey (or Trails) of games. I knocked out so many RPGs, with a few other genres getting represented.

Presenting this year's OctJOEber offering: THE STEAM MARKETPLACE MASSACRE
Posted September 11, 2021 by JoeTheDestroyer

"Joe, you haven't written much this year."

Correction. I haven't posted much this year, but I have at least 17 unposted reviews. I had one project I was working on that wasn't specifically intended to be an OctJOEber one, but just happened to see its completion right this month. Since we're this close, I may as well unveil it as such.

THE STEAM MARKETPLACE MASSACRE
Because I have enough horror in my library to do several October projects

RPG Maker fare featuring a girl who discovers that her father is a mad scientist, and must find him somewhere in their mansion that's crawling with zombies and killer dolls.

Jerec's Games of August 2021
Posted August 30, 2021 by jerec

Finished three games this month, all Falcom.

FINISHED

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV (PS4)

I finished this in the first couple of days of August. It feels like a long time ago now, oddly. It has been a long month of lockdown. So, yeah, the first ending was kinda meh. But once you've seen that ending you can load up the game again and go into the "true ending" which was very satisfying in an end of a saga sort of way. I spent close to a year playing through the nine games in this series, and it was some of the best JRPG experiences I've ever had. It does mean I'm taking a break from the series until the next game is out in English, which is sometime in 2023.

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.

Jerec's Games of July 2021
Posted July 31, 2021 by jerec

Another month. Sydney went back into lockdown in late June, and there is no sign of it ending soon. I had a job interview which seemed promising, which I'm hoping to hear back from soon. If I get that job, I'll probably be working from home in the beginning, which is the only thing likely to stop me playing games for several hours a day.

I don't think I've ever played one game/series with such a singular focus since I was a kid who only owned a handful of games. I may never be able to do this again.

Bullies befriending bullies

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
