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

Game of The Year 2017

…well, it’s just like, my opinion – man.

Well, here we are ladies and gentlemen – the cusp of yet another New Year. I personally hate New Year, a lot of preparation to end up in a pub full to the rafters and waiting 25 minutes to get a drink that is severely overpriced. Not for me, but it does allow me the chance to share with you all my personal game of the year choices! As always, I will do a top 3, with some honorable mentions – so shall we see what I have chosen this year? Let’s do this!

Backlog Blitz: November 2017

We’re well into the last month of the year and failure is staring me right in the face; unless I had a stellar month and completed AT LEAST two games a week it seems inevitable!

What is this Backlog Blitz all about? Well – it’s a challenge I set myself and here’s the rules for those of you with short-term memory issues (you poor bastards):

  • I must complete 52 games in 2017
  • The games can be ones that I have previously started or have previously completed and they can be on any platform
  • Episodic games count as one game per episode
  • Lengthy DLC (ie Blood & Wine) counts as a game
  • Every time I complete a game I score +1
  • Every time I buy a game I score -2
  • By the end of the year I must finish with a positive score or I have failed the Backlog Blitz

Year Score (so far) = -20

How’d November go? Read on dear reader! Continue reading

As the saying goes though, good things come to those who wait. That is certainly the case with Horizon Zero Dawn! Continue reading
