Diablo II: Resurrected

This is a post I’ve been wanting to make for a little while. But, I decided to spend quite a bit of time with the game before sharing my thoughts. I’ll start by saying that Diablo is one of my favorite gaming franchises. So when I learned that a remaster of the classic Diablo II was being developed – I...

Nerd Fuel: Dunkin’ – Falling for Maple

My last coffee review was meant to be the first of a few seasonal reviews. Sadly, in the end, Green Mountain’s Dark Chocolate Hazelnut just didn’t really seem much like a “fall-themed” coffee. But, I think I’ve found something that might fit the bill. A new limited edition from Dunkin’ (formerly known as Dunkin Donuts) – Falling for Maple. When...

Record Shop: Red Hot Chili Peppers – The Uplift Mofo Party Plan

I’ve always been a creature of habit. Once I take an interest in something, I like to deep-dive into the topic. My introduction to the Red Hot Chili Peppers was no different. It wasn’t long after I was introduced to their Blood Sugar Sex Magik album, that I started to collect all of their previous records. So far on this...

Site Updates: Update 2021

  Due to an overwhelming amount of feedback regarding site performance, I have once again updated the visual layout for OldGameHermit.com. In the distant past, I always focused on performance over aesthetics. Now, that isn’t to say that I’ve ever been willing to suffer from an ugly-looking site. But things like page-load speed and browser compatibility have always been most...
