With 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 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
Here it is guys, the first update of my backlog challenge in 2018, if you remember I decided that there had be a slight rule change for my current gaming habits to contribute to the challenge and not dissuade me from playing the games I want to play. Continue reading
Sony 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.
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
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!
flash from the past…right?
Ok folks it is back again – I will be attempting to complete 52 games in 2018; that is one game a week! I promised you last week that I would keep you abreast of any changes and seeing that I am a man of my word; here is that post. Continue reading
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
The years just keep rolling on don’t they, they seem to be getting progressively shorter as I age, it does not feel like a year has passed since the last AGDQ and it most certainly doesn’t feel like 6 full months since SGDQ! Continue reading

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
