Backlogs and Buying New Games….

Backlogs and Buying New Games….
Damn, I really want Persona 4 Golden… but honestly will I get time to play it? Ignoring Four in February I have so much still to play (that I do really want to get around to at some point! Backlogs are a bad thing for motivation to play games. Here are just some of my outstanding games….
Professor Layton series on DS
Dragon Quest 4/5/6 remakes on DS
Retro City Rampage on Vita
The various Grand Theft Auto games for PSP/DS/PC
Chono Trigger
The various Mario games for 3DS that are in differ stages of completion
All the Zelda games I own (between Virtual Console, DS, and 3DS.. Link’s Awakening, Minish Cap, Ocarina of Time, Tingle’s Rupee Land)
Pokemon Conquest and Super Pokemon Rumble
Animal Crossing (Although one doesn’t really ‘complete’ Animal Crossing!)
All of the Fallout games (without getting bored 4 hours in)
Just Cause 2
Cave Story and Mutant Mudds
Faster than Light
Various Paradox Strategy games (although they are apparently very time consuming)
Leisure Suit Larry series (Damn you, GOG)
Orcs Must Die
The Walking Dead
The Stalker Series
Half Life series
The various tycoon games from GOG that I have amassed.
Baldur’s Gate and the remaining D&D games (once again from GOG)

learly there is a problem here. I simply do not need any more games… I think I should aim to finish 3/5 games from my backlog before I buy new ones. So therefore I won’t be buying any more (Animal Crossing New Leaf is exempt from this clause) until I finish at least 5 games from my backlog. Four in February should see me completing two of these (Half Life and Oblivion) and we’ll see what goes on after then!

Wish me luck!


Four in February Progress 2/4 and some great news…

I am now the champion in Pokemon Black 2! That means that I am 50% of the way through my challenge whilst being 57% of the way through February. There’s a high chance I might actually do this!

Four in Feb Progress

Elder Scrolls: Oblivion might be an issue because I am likely to get sidetracked… We’ll see…. In other awesome news; Animal Crossing New Leaf has a release date for Europe! June 14th! Can’t say I’m not just a bit excited… But so is Amelia! It’s after uni finishes too which means I won’t play it instead of revising… Not that I would ever do that….

Four in February Progress 1/4

Finished my first game of Four in February! 7:28:36 and I’ve destroyed the One Ring in Lego Lord of the Rings. Woop! I won’t be continuing to 100% because that’s plainly ridiculous in a LEGO game with thousands of collectables to find.

I had a lot of fun completing the story, and enjoyed the LEGO styling of the characters. All were done well, and were instantly recognizable. Going through freeplay with the cast of unlocked would be great I just wouldn’t get any of my other Four in February games completed (before June).

Little Orcs!

Just before we headed off to ally with the Army of the Dead, we ran into some dancing minifigs hiding in tents. There were three tents all with a different dance; the occupants all looked embarrassed when they were exposed… I also remember at some point a sword being turned into a pile of bananas. Pretty sure that never happened in the movies or the books.

My next game is probably going to be Pokémon Black 2, which I aim to finish before the end of the week! See you then!
