Well here we are, finally getting round to putting out the first real post of the month (bloody hell); I know that we have been awful with our posts these last two months but we are putting things into place that will keep us (and of course you guys) right for the rest of the year! I have begun writing quality posts for our annual ‘Frightfest’ celebration and I know that Sherry is also looking forward to getting back to his weekly post! Continue reading
No I haven’t mistitled this article, nor have you read it wrong; this is actually my JUNE update on my backlog blitz challenge I nicked (though slightly changed) from NeoGAF. Continue reading
May was a pretty good month; I celebrated my birthday, I bought absolutely no games (despite Sony putting on more great sales) and I got actually some real sit down and game time towards the end of the month. However the preceding 4 weeks of May were balls to the wall busy and I actually hard an immensely difficult time doing anything gaming related (including writing blog posts).
Summer is coming though; that means that GCSEs and the real graft of teaching is almost behind me for 8 weeks and it should also mean that I get some legitimate gaming time. I expect to see a number of titles get deleted from my Backlog over July and August – in fact the success of this challenge depends on it! Continue reading
4 months into my experiment and I have to say that April was far kinder to me than March was and I nearly doubled my completion tally! For those who aren’t regular readers here’s the links to the previous monthly updates January, February and March. Continue reading
For those who aren’t regular readers; this year I’m tackling my humongous backlog of games. With the simple of target of completing (at least) 52; currently I am sitting at a grand total of 3 games completed, just slightly more than one a month.
Surely March would be a better month for me and my backlog blitz? Continue reading
Over a year ago I wrote about how my backlog was getting out of control; and since then I’ve seen my backlog of games do nothing but grow longer and longer.
Even when I have the best intentions of “getting stuck into this” and “I’ll definitely play that this week” it continues to taunt me as it my steam library stretches beyond the reaches of my monitors.
I wish this was merely the case on PC but the sad fact is that it has spread to every console I own too! My PS4 HDD is not only stuffed full of games, but there are countless others who have been relegated to “my library”. I have 3 16GB 3DS SD cards heaving with games I’ve bought and never played, my VITA has become a graveyard for abandoned playthroughs. Continue reading
I know that MrJohnSherry is currently chronicling his adventures through his backlog, but I too am attempting to work my way through my own and it is proving to be troublesome. Throughout January I have been taking Sony up on some of their smashing Winter sale deals and it is proving to be a killer decision.
Before I start on my issues though I want to let you all in on the size of the problem that lies before me; and I’m only going to talk about my Playstation Consoles. The games in my backlog are:
- Murusaki Baby
- Freedom Wars
- Persona 4 Golden
- Tembo the Badass Elephant
- Resident Evil 0 HD
- Uncharted 2 and 3 HD
- Assassins Creed Unity
- Transformers Devastation
- Alien Isolation – Challenge Rooms DLC
- Rock Band 4
- Valiant Hearts
That list is truly frightening, there are some games on this list that are 20-40 hours long and even some that are considerably longer! I want to have this backlog clear by the
time that ‘The Division’ gets released; but it’s gotten to the point were I power up the console and cannot decide on what game to play!
The task at hand is beginning to look like a mountain!
What can I do about this? Continue reading
