2024 Look Ahead

As 2023 comes to a close I want to take a moment to share my plans for the coming year.  Fair warning, however. The paragraphs to follow are chock-full of inside baseball and boring details into the way my mind works. I started my RPG catch-up about two years ago. That’s a long time! I suppose that’s to be expected....

A word on emulation

Ever since I started this blog I’ve always made it a point to campaign against piracy. It should go without saying that I, like so many of my readers, love video games. And aside from a few indie titles, the majority of games are created by big development companies. These companies spend a huge amount of money on research and...

2022 Look Ahead

2021 was an odd year for the site. In terms of gaming, progress on my backlog was slower than in previous years, but still fairly steady. Several of the games I played and reviewed were chock full of content and took quite a while to digest. Despite this, a number of them were Class A titles that I’ve looked forward...

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...

Site Update: Progress Report

I want to apologize for the turn around time of new posts. As I mentioned last month, I’m currently undertaking a vast update to the contents of the site. Legacy posts are being updated to the new layout. At the time of this writing, I’m almost halfway done. Once this project is complete, new posts will resume at the regular...

Site Updates 2020

Just a quick note to explain the slower-than-normal release of new content to the site. Yes, I’m still gaming and working on new reviews. But in addition to that, I’m also working on a major modernization to much of the previous content from years past. Back when this site first launched, the internet was a different place. High-speed ISPs were...

RPG Catch-Up

Now that my sub-focus on Arcade Fighters has come to an end, it’s time to move on. Back in October I took my first step into the next generation of my backlog with a review of Luigi’s Mansion for the Nintendo GameCube. In the months to follow, I’ll be diving into games from both the original Xbox and the Playstation...

Site Conversion Complete

First, I want to apologize for a lack of content during the last thirty days. I’ve been slow posting new articles because I’ve been hard at work fixing a number of performance issues with the site. To start, I’ve switched my hosting to a much faster provider. This conversion took a considerable amount of time. But, during this downtime I...

A note about future reviews.

As those of you who have been following me for a long time know, the overall purpose of this site has always been to chronicle my various interests in anything “nerd-related”. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been passionate about nerdy things. As a young child, my obsession started with my introduction to Star Wars. It was...
