Backlog Blitz Vers. 2.0.1.8: March

BacklogWith this version of Backlog Blitz, I am determined now to fall below the standard that I set for myself last year – I have hit the stage where my baseline is now the number of games I completed last year. I do not (and will not) fail to better that number. The good news is that streaming has really boosted the number of games that I am playing to completion – even though I feel like I’ve done a lot already, I still have a heck of a way to go.

Welcome to backlog blitz 2018. Continue reading

A Streamer’s Diary: Jan/Feb 2018

A blast from the past! The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that I have begun streaming again on twitch and have been consistently doing so since the end of January. So, what is better than resurrecting a long dead (but still inexplicably popular) series ‘A Streamer’s Diary’ Continue reading

What do the changes to PS Plus mean for Sony?

PS-PlusSony dropped two bombshells last week; firstly, Bloodborne will be on PlayStation Plus in March and secondly that PlayStation 3 & VITA games will be dropped from the program in March 2019.

That news has split the community right down the middle and it has created several conspiracy theories as to why Sony would announce it a YEAR in advance. That’s not what games companies do – they are meant to announced something as a reaction to some outside stimulus and announce it as late as humanly possible.

The fact that they have broken the mold suggests that they have something else in the pipeline; presumably to be announced at E3 or possibly closer to March ’19.

3 PSOne Platformers I DO want a remake for

Last week I spent an article looking at the crappy PSOne platformers that I would least likely see get remakes/remasters in the current gen; but don’t you guys think that there is plenty negativity in gaming already? Wouldn’t you prefer to see some positivity instead?

Good news that I had this article lined up and ready to go then isn’t it?

Here are the three Platform games that I would most want to see receive a current-gen remake/remaster! Continue reading

The State of the Blog

Last year we really pulled it out of the bag – despite it being one of our worst years for new content we somehow had our best year ever for views! Whilst this is awesome news views just aren’t enough for me, a few years ago I wrote a piece about how important the community is to me (and these pages) and merely coasting by with the minimal amount of posts simply isn’t good enough for me or you!

My Favourite Runs of AGDQ 2018: Part 2

agdq-2016-1-770x470

Even though I am always gutted when another GDQ comes to a close there is a silver lining to this cloud; it means that I can go onto YouTube and see the runs that I missed out on because of life commitments/work/sleep. Whilst it’s not quite the same as watching live; it is still absolutely brilliant viewing – speedruns make amazing viewing! Continue reading

Backlog Blitz December 2017 & Final Roundup

BacklogGames Bought: Tekken 7

Games Completed: Tekken 7 (Paul and Hwoarang Story) and Watch_Dogs 2.

Final Year Score: -19

Completion count: 25

Well that is that, 2017 has come and gone and so too has my Backlog Blitz – whilst it was tough going in some months, I think that I have been fallen well short of completing 52 games in one calendar year – I have certainly completed more games in 2017 than I have in a very long time. So, in a sense 2017 was successful year. Continue reading
