I didn't know you could do that, I was actually disappointed when a badge didn't pop up when I hit zero. I tried googling it with no luck, do you know how to request one?

According to the FAQ, you have to use the Contact Form (at the bottom of the website) to request one while your unfinished count is zero.

thanks! message sent, I wonder how long of a delay I should expect. I'm expecting a new game in the mail today, I should probably wait until after the badge is assigned before adding it

Games that don't count (rented games finished or purchased games previously beaten):

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Ultimate Edition (Steam) - Own this on PS3 already and have finished it. Never bought the DLC though and wanted to have it run at a smoother framerate. Thank you Steam Halloween Sale.
GTAV (360) - Beat during a rental. I like it quite a lot, but I'm happy to wait for the PC version to play it again.

Bought in October 2013 (-3):

Skylanders: Swap Force (Wii U)
The Stanley Parable (Steam)
The Typing of the Dead: Overkill (Steam)

Finished in October 2013 (2):

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (Steam) - Finally finished this beast. I love this game from top to bottom.
The Stanley Parable (Steam) - I'm calling it "finished" anyway. There's still some achievements to go after and probably a fair amount yet to see.

Currently Playing:

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (Steam) - Farming souls in NG+ in the Painted World. In this run I hope to try the DLC for the first time. Also I started a Pryomancer character that I want to tinker around with. Not sure how to guide his stats yet though. I need to decide on what weapons I want to use as I progress and which ones I want to stick with in the long run. I'd like to have her more focused on dexterity than my current character which is all strength.

Pokemon X (3DS) - Still trying to pry this game out of my hands on an almost daily basis. I get why people like it but I'm never going to put the time in to get a lot out of it. Can't stop myself from turning it on to catch more pokemons though.

The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD (Wii U) - Probably my next purchase from gamefly. I'm almost at the triforce hunt. I'm curious to see what's changed.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (3DS) - Not really feeling this so far. I'm about 20% through or so and currently stuck. I found the warden who's tied up and missed some dialogue, so I'm not sure what I'm doing next. Anyway, I'm not a fan of the backtracking and combat isn't that great. Also having annoying control issues.

I didn't think I beat too much in October since I've mainly been playing games I've already beaten with what little gaming time I've had.

Beaten in 2013: 25

October: 4

Puzzle Retreat (10/2) - I loved this game. It's exactly the type of sit-and-think kind of puzzle game. Well worth the $2.

Tiny Tower (10/5) - More of a time waster than an actual game but hey it was free and I often have 5 minute windows of boredom.

Scribblenauts Unlimited (10/15) - At first I wasn't terribly impressed with the new format but by the end I was converted. I loved the "Bang, Bang" secret object shard.

Fractal - Eh. A decent puzzle game but it felt far too luck based in the final levels.

Took another backslide with some game purchases, but at least I finished a couple of them.

Ace Attorney 5 : Dual Destinies

I'm not sure what to score this game. On the one hand, I'm a big Ace Attorney fan and love the characters and story, but on the other hand, this one seemed to remove almost all of the difficulty and challenge of the previous entries in the series. In a sense that could be seen as a bad thing, but given that the challenge in these games almost always seemed to come from overly-obtuse puzzle solutions, the solutions in this one seemed a lot more natural.

Without delving into spoiler territory, the game manages to spin an effective tale which ends up being a little too conveniently too-tied-together by the time it finishes up, which is a bit of an AA staple. The best individual case is probably the one which has the least relation to the rest of the story, but the other cases, taken as a whole, are also very entertaining.

They strike a good balance between bringing back old favorite characters, while giving some others a break to give the new characters a place to shine. One casting decision I hated early on ended up being paid off pretty well by the end of the game, proving the value of mixing in new characters rather than resting on an over-reliance on old favorites.

In the end, I never really played AA games for the gameplay, so I suppose it's a good thing, but I can't in good conscience give a top score to a game that barely has any "game" left in it. So consider it a 5/5 from a character and story perspective, and a 1/5 from a gameplay perspective. Since the story holds far greater weight and impact in the end, and the gameplay manages to not get in the way of that...

Overall score - 4/5

Grand Theft Auto 5

I'm a bit reticent to review this one at all, given that I'm guessing very few on GAF have yet to play it, and those who haven't probably have their minds made up about the franchise.

Suffice to say that I enjoyed it quite a bit, except when I didn't. The gameplay mechanics are spectacularly archaic, which makes many sections of the game un-fun. However, the good still somehow manages to outweigh the bad and leave me with a positive overall impression of the game.

Darksiders 2 is beat. It's a fun game, but I'm disappointed. Mostly due to the story, I'd say they failed to accomplish anything at all with that.

1. Jade Empire - 4/21
2. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - 7/15

Backlog is now at 1.

http://backloggery.com/gryphter

A nice side effect of not buying new releases in favor of my backlog is that now that I'm buying games again, just about all of them are cheap now. Darksiders 2 was only $16 on amazon and it wasn't even on sale or anything, that's the regular price. Then the other day, God of War: Ascension was on sale for $15, so I went in on that. I plan on buying 3 games with next week's buy 2 get 1 free at Target, and I'm keeping an eye on Black Friday as well. I don't want to ask for too many games this holiday season, but between everything it looks like I'll have a few to last me a while. Oh, not that it directly affects my backlog but I picked up a 3DS XL as well, which is my reward for clearing my backlog, so I've got a few 3DS games to catch up on as well. Things are looking great but I'm being very cautious not to slip too far down the hole again.

Almost forgot to update here, was busy during the start of the month since I was out of town. Another negative month, but not really bad with my purchases. Its not like my purchases and beaten record is bad since I've never had a backlog larger than 3 games for months now.

Started the month with Etrian Odyssey Untold, its basically EOI in EOIV skin plus the Story mode. I really like the new option addition such as the fast movement in dungeons and the animation skip during battles. Highly recommended playing this over the original release because of the technical, and mechanical changes to almost the whole game. Story mode is kinda mixed but I enjoyed it. Pokemon Y is a no brainer, my most anticipated game of the year, its Pokemon in 3D finally! I'd also like to say that I'm one of the very few people who believes that Pokemon is better with each new entry. Was supposed to get Pokemon X but don't have a second 3DS so I passed on getting it. For the music, its really good but I think B/W soundtrack is a bit better than this. Kamui and Armed Seven was bought from the Groupees bundle. Was hoping for all Alltynex trilogy games but I prefer Kamui over the other ones. I also kinda get the big deal with this doujin shmup, its really really good and has aged really well. Armed Seven on the other hand is basically like Satazius but with Mechs and robots. There were lots of bonuses on the bundle but didn't include them. My interest were really just on these games and the soundtracks. I'll probably get Higurashi and Hatoful Boyfriend in the future though.

I have barely played Ace Attorney 5 though since I was still playing Pokemon a lot. I want to continue it again this month, but the problem is that I'm currently playing Age of Empires II: The Forgotten so it might take some time to get through it.

Picked up a PS4 and with it the two free games. Not planning to count these as "bought" unless I actually play and finish them, but to that end, I did "finish" Resogun, insofar as the game can be finished. (I got a credits roll on the "experienced" difficulty level.) Still planning to play it some more, since it's a score attack type game, and besides, what the hell else am I going to play on PS4? Here's a review for the game to this point.

Resogun

I was a big fan of Mutant Storm Reloaded and Geometry Wars at the 360 launch, and enjoyed Super Stardust HD quite a lot when it came out during the PS3's first year, but I wasn't sure what I'd think of Resogun when I finally got my hands on it. When I was a little kid growing up, Asteroids was one of my favorite games. I hadn't ever played Robotron at the time, but the Asteroids connection was enough to sell me on those games, and I became a big fan of the twin-stick shooter genre.

While those games were homages to Robotron and to some degree Asteroids, Resogun takes that formula and applies it to Defender. Unlike Asteroids, I never was a fan of Defender as a kid. I always found the game to be pretty uninteresting. As an adult, I've grown to appreciate Defender's place in gaming history, but I've never developed a love for the game.

So when I loaded up Resogun for the first time, I was prepared to be underwhelmed. It looked nice enough in preview footage, but I was afraid it just wouldn't be for me. Firing up the first level, I used the default ship and chose the "Experienced" difficulty, which is the second of 4 difficulty settings, and I believe it was the default selection. I had watched some gameplay of the game from Giant Bomb, so I had some grasp on the mechanics before I played. I strongly recommend anybody who plays this game for the first time to watch some videos that explain the mechanics, because the game does absolutely nothing to teach you. There is nothing especially obtuse in the game's mechanics, but there is a massive sensory overload with the game's visuals, which could make it very tough to figure out what's going on on your own.

To summarize - You control a ship which can fly left and right around a cylindrical playfield. At various points in the level, you will see neon green Humans (which look like little Darwinia guys) trapped in glass cubes. Enemies spawn out of thin air all around you for the duration of the level. There is a little wisp of smoke as they materialize into the environment. At first it can be difficult to pick this up, but as you play you learn to parse the environment. Every now and then a group of "keeper" enemies will spawn, accompanied by a "keepers detected" voice-over. If you kill these keepers, one of the humans will be released from his cell, and will drop to the ground.

This is where the game gets interesting. In order to rescue the human, you will need to take your ship down to him, which will cause him to attach to the underside of the ship. (you can also shoot him and push him along, but this tends to be a bit chaotic ad there are pits on some levels the humans can fall in and die) Once attached, you carry the human to the... uh.. hell if I know. There are static ships above the playfield with "beam me up" beams below them. Take the little guys into the beams, and they get beamed up to the mothership and saved. The beams only go about halfway down the playfield, so it's hard to get them up there with shooting alone, unless you get a big bounce. If the beam is in a spot that's too dangerous to fly into, you can use the "Throw Human" button - which, as an aside, is the greatest name for a button i the history of videogames - which will toss the little guy out into space and into the beam. They're seemingly impervious to all the weapons and explosions going on, which begs the question of why they're not saving you.

If you fail to kill a group of keepers, the human will die in his cell. If you release him and fail to take him to the beam, an enemy ship will come down and beam him up, at which point you lose him as well.

Saving humans on its own seems sort of meaningless given the sheer frenetic chaos going on around you, but it's brilliantly balanced by two factors. One - It gives you a big points boost. Since this is a score-attack game, points are a solid reward in their own right, but in addition to that, you can also get tangible in-game rewards for saving them. These include a shield, which will protect you from one kill-shot until it expires, an extra life, and screen-clearing bombs. Tying these rewards to rescuing humans makes saving them far more valuable to beginning players than simply rewarding points. As we know, beginning players at a game aren't going to be putting up anything impressive on the leaderboards, and this game is tough. It will chew you up and spit you out when you first start playing, and these extra rewards for saving humans will bail you out and help you complete levels you may not have otherwise cleared.

And the levels are where my biggest gripes with the game lie. For one, They're a bit too long for my tastes. I also thought the levels in Super Stardust HD (also by Housemarque) were a little on the long side, and that tradition has carried over here. That's not to say that I'd like a shorter game overall, but I'd prefer a game with 10 levels half as long as this game's 5 levels to the setup we have here. The second issue I have is with the loading times between levels. In an absolute sense, the load times aren't very long - without timing them I'd say they're between 5 and 10 seconds, but the fact that they exist at all in a fast-paced linear arcade game like this grates on me.

I have a complicated relationship with load times. Sometimes a 30-second load goes by and I don't care, and other times a 5-second load can drive me absolutely nuts. A lot has to due with the nature of the game and what's being loaded, and this one happens to fall on the wrong side of the fence for me. Ultimately, it's probably a by-product of this being a launch title, and it's easy to excuse it based on that, but it still bugs me a bit. At the end of the day, it's really not that big of a deal, and others may not even notice it.

Beyond those minor complaints, I have to say I'm quite positive on the game. It looks nice, it sounds nice, has responsive controls, and enough gameplay variety (5 levels, 3 ships you can play, and 4 difficulty levels) that you could keep coming back to play it for hours. It's the best game of the PS4 launch, and while I like it a hair less than the twin-stick shooters at and around the previous generation's console launches, I'd recommend it to anyone who likes arcade style games.

• Metal Gear Rising Revengeance beaten: Meh. It's incredibly short, mediocre, and the final boss sucks. Disappointing.
- 11/18:
• Dark Souls beaten, after 80 hours: It's a damn fine game, as oppressive as demon's souls. It was easier too. If i had to choose between the two, i would pick demon's souls though.
- 11/17:
• Muramasa Rebirth beaten: I'm really glad they released it on Vita, because it looks superb with the oled. The soundtrack is magnificent and it's really fun to play.

I've got a weird pace going right now but didn't want to spam this thread with small stuff, so I waited a bit.

Mario Kart 7 and Bioshock Infinite are beat.

MK7 isn't really a game you can "beat," but I did unlock all characters and most of the kart customization options. Played a bunch online and got whooped by the GAF thread players. My Activity Log had me at 24 hours last I checked so I feel like this one can be crossed off the list even though I still hop in for a worldwide race or two when I have like 10 minutes here and there. Love it, btw.

I favor the 360 controller but wanted to try Bioshock Infinite with the PS Move. Didn't care for the Move after 20 min so I went to DS3, but man it took me waaaay too long to adapt to the controller since I'm so used to the 360 sticks. I was a bit disappointed by the game and originally planned on going straight to the DLC, but now I'm not even sure if I'm going to get it. My wife plans on playing the game eventually (she wants to play Bioshock 2 first) so if she likes Infinite, I'll get the DLC for the both of us.

Puts me at +20, for now.

1. Barkley, Shut up and Jam: Gaiden - 1/4

Started Gears of War: Judgment with a friend last night and we are having a BLAST. I know it got a lukewarm reception so I was worried for a bit but it's all I've been thinking about this morning and I'm really excited to play more tonight. Forgot to mention we got it on the cheap; amazon has it for $20 which is what prompted us playing it. Should be done in just a few days. We're driving down to Disney World first week of Dec so I'm saving Mario 3D Land for that.

Gears of War: Judgment is beat. Played co-op with a friend, hardcore difficulty, and did all declassified missions. We actually 3 starred almost all of them, have 2 stars on probably 3 total. We also played the Aftermath chapter which takes place during Gears 3. Good stuff! I might check out multiplayer for just a night but nothing major.

Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and then a trip to Disney is coming up for me. I probably won't be playing many games until after but as mentioned before, I did reserve Mario 3D Land for the drive down. I've got a couple games I'm keeping an eye on for Black Friday and expect to buy no more than 3 for myself. Good deals are just that though, so if it's sweet enough, I won't turn it down.

So - Steam Sales, huh? And Black Friday sales. I am weak, you are strong. You win this year. Going backwards some more.

In brighter news, I finished Super Mario 3D World.

Not going to write a review for this one. It's more high-quality Mario. There are some inspired choices and some really irritating UI stuff, but overall it's a 5/5 game.

As for November, as above, didn't buy a game (surprisingly) and of course didn't finish one. Though I'll probably be getting 5 3DS games next week alone (Bravery Default, new Zelda + Kid Icarus, Style Boutique and Soul Hackers are cheap), Gran Turismo 6, whatever I pick up from the current Steam sale and if I see anything else that's a good deal.

Notes
This month was mostly a "go back and work toward 100% on old games" month. 100%ed Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory, working on the Miracle Mask and Crashmo post-game.
Thinking harder about it, all the games from Club Nintendo should probably be counted as "free"—but since I've listed 'em this way for an entire year, no point in changing now.

Not much this month tbh, Dillon's Rolling Western was free from Club Nintendo, and sadly I didn't like it so I marked it as finished. Plague Inc. was a recommendation from a friend after he showed me the game on his tablet. Bought it on iOS and its an addicting strategy game. I've also been anticipating Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten, I still can't believe that my favorite RTS got a new expansion. Love the new civilizations, new gameplay modes and changes to the game. I've been reading that the game is buggy, luckily I haven't encountered one yet. Disappointed with the new campaigns though which felt like custom scenarios. And finally, bought a WiiU for Super Mario 3D World. Was skeptical with the game during its underwhelming E3 reveal, but the game turned out really great. EAD still has it and its now my GOTY.

Also, I finished Ace Attorney 5. While I love the last case, the game also has the terrible Case 2. I guess I'd say its below AA1 and AA3. Haven't bought the DLC case yet.

Also glad that I haven't bought anything during the Steam Sale. While I'm tempted for some games, none of them are games I'm going to play right away so I passed on them. Besides the games I want right now on Steam aren't on sale or just got Greenlit so no release for a while. I'm planning on getting Ys Celceta and Zelda: LBW this month if I have the time, otherwise, I will be playing more Super Mario 3D World and Age of Empires II, and go back to Pokemon once Pokebank opens.

- 12/31:
• The House of The Dead Overkill Extended Cut beaten: This game is awesome as fuck.
• Total back at 0. Not a bad year after all.
- 12/28:
• Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition bought on steam. As with Castlevania, i haven't played the dlc so it is backlog. And i began to play The House of The Dead Overkill Extended Cut.
- 12/27:
• Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War ~ Soulstorm beaten: The campaign mode was easy until i posted here that i expected to finish it before the end of the year. For some reason the chaos marines decided to ruin my life for two days, and after 8 hours and 22 minutes of pain i killed the bastards (and it wasn't even a stronghold mission). They are broken as fuck.
• Back at 0, fuck yeah. Now i'm planing on buying Dark Souls on steam. If i finally pull the trigger, y will try to finish house of the dead overkill so i'll end with a total of 0. We'll see.
- 12/26:
• Dokuro beaten: Good game. The hitboxes are a bit janky but the puzzles are good.
• One game to go.
- 12/24:
• Trine 2 Complete Story and Castlevania LOS Ultimate Edition bought on steam/gmg. Since i already have Castlevania on ps3 (but not the dlc), i'm going to count it as backlog. Hopefully I will finish Dokuro and Warharmmer between today and tomorrow, so i'll end 2013 with a total of 0.
- 12/9:
• Tearaway beaten: Lovely and charming game. The paper world is really well made. Platinum here i go.
- 12/7:
• Killzone Shadow Fall beaten: Hmm, it is kind of a mixed bag. Some parts are really good, but others are weirdly designed. It does look great, the soundtrack is ok, and the controls work well. So, for a launch game i can't complain. I have to try the multiplayer yet.
- 12/6:
• Rymdkapsel beaten: It was ok. I like the concept and would be nice to see a full fledged game with it.
- 12/2:
• Resogun beaten: This game, THIS GAME. Superb in every sense, except the online multiplayer, where the framerate drops and there is a bit of input delay. The Decima stage is my favourite. Also, it is my first ps4 platinum.
