Current Score: (-8)

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

Thomas Was Alone (PS Vita) - I was always interested in the buzz around this game but it took PS+ to finally get me to give it a chance. Glad I did. The narrator is up there with Bastion's and Stanley Parable's for me.

Bought in May 2014 (-2):

Kirby Triple Deluxe (3DS)
Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)

Finished in May 2014 (1):

Dark Souls II (Steam) - This is basically what I did all month. Took me about 27 hours to finish but there are some optional bosses I skipped. While I agree that this isn't as good of a game as the first, I enjoyed my experience with this one more because I went into every new area completely blind, whereas with the first game I bought a large book for it and went to the wiki a lot which spoiled many surprises.

Currently Playing:

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (PS Vita) - When I wasn't playing Dark Souls II I was mostly playing this. In the past week I did all of the harrowing tasks for getting ultimate weapons including catcher chocobo, remiem temple, lightning dodging, blitzball tournaments, cactuar village, UGH.... It's all so terrible. Anyway, I've never played a version with the Dark Aeons before so I'm currently only stuck getting Tidus's weapon to full power because I forgot the Sun Crest, and can't get it unless I beat Dark Bahamut. Currently finishing up my last area of monster catching (Omega Dungeons) then I'll work on filling out the sphere grid.
Stick It To The Man (PS4) - Went through the first 3 chapters a couple of weeks ago. It's not bad and I think I'll finish it at some point.
Watch Dogs (PS4) - Just a couple of hours in. There's practically nothing coming out until September so I don't mind not rushing through this.

Hit the 3DS hard this month. Finished Mario 3D Land, and I played through Devil Survivor Overclocked. I liked most of the 8th days in Overclocked, but would only recommend a replay of it to fans. I played and enjoyed Stick it to the Man and Rain. I've also started Time and Eternity because there's something wrong with me. It is terrible, but in a sorta fun way.

For buying, I picked up a couple bundles as usual, and a couple games: Disgaea D2 and FFX HD collection. Already played the original FFX games, so not counting.

And while I may still be behind for the year, I would like to announce that my 3DS backlog is currently CLEAR! I expect it to remain so for the near future.

Sure. It kind of started with me finishing Wind Waker before Christmas, wanting more Zelda, then kind of sticking with the classics. All the GOTY lists made me want to jump on Bioshock when it hit PS+. I'll probably grab Brothers for the same reason, a year of Giant Bombcasts have got me really curious about that game.

So far in 2014:

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Super Metroid
Mega Man III
Mega Man IV
Mega Man X
Final Fight 3
Bioshock Infinite

My goal was 24 games finished on the year (2 per month), so I'm well ahead of that now after falling short last year.
Haha, famous last words, but I'm back in the saddle after posting the above 5 months ago (stupid school).

Finished the following since then:

Killzone: Shadow Fall
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (not a huge accomplishment)
Ghosts n' Goblins (a huge accomplishment)
Super Ghouls n' Ghosts (not quite as bad, but ditto)
New Super Mario Bros U (all star coins!)
Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (awesome)

...I think that's all. More than halfway there! Next up: Kid Icarus, Super Luigi U, and I'll definitely be getting Shovel Knight this week.

There was carnage everywhere. I decided to take a heavy look at a GOG sale and then not look again for a very long time. I will pretty much only buy new games that I've preordered (Smash, Hearts R, Kickstarters) for a long time as well.

When I post in July/August, this score will be positive again and quite a few games may be taken off the list. :)

6th Update:
Beat Asura's Wrath and the Episode Pack: Part IV. An awesome game. I was sitting in front of the TV grinning the whole time :D
Going to beat some stuff on Wii now. I started a lot of titles, played them pretty far and didn't finish :(.

EDIT:
Yeah, like I said. Beat Goldeneye for Wii. Didn't like the last mission, but all in all a good game.

Doubt I'll beat anything by end of tomorrow, so time for the end of the month check-in. picked up a few games from the Steam sale and the Nintendo e-shop sale after E3, but what really put me under was receiving a PS4 unexpectedly as a gift. First time I've been in the negative this year, but I should be able to recover without much problem.

So the summer sale came out of nowhere and really added to my backlog. I was expecting it to come in July, so that's sort of a bummer. On the plus side, it was my first real Steam sale, so I was able to pick up a bunch of games I was interested in, and some I hadn't really paid attention to until they actually went on sale, like Shadowrun Returns. Also managed to pick up the remaining Sega Genesis pack, so I'll be able to play the Phantasy Star games. I didn't play too many games during the summer sale since the actual threads were really fun to hang out in. Got more gifts than I thought I would, gave more gifts than I thought I would. Plus I managed to pick up the big games I wanted, like the Banner Saga and Kentucky Route Zero, so there's that.

I was able to finish nine games this month. Harvester is a really great game from a bygone era that more people should experience. Millennium: A New Hope is okay, nothing really special, but still sort of entertaining. Noir Syndrome is a game that has a good foundation but terrible execution. The Longest Journey is an outdated classic that still sort of holds up. The 3DS version of Mega Man III is laggy as fuck. Heileen 1: Sail Away is garbage, please don't buy it unless you get it in a bundle. Volt isn't fun and it was honestly too difficult for me to really enjoy it. The GBC port of Dragon Warrior I is a great classic JRPG that was enjoyable to the point that I even had fun grinding. Another World is another classic game that sort of holds up but is frustrating at times. As usual, there's more impressions on around half of those titles over in the 52 games challenge thread.

This month I really don't know what to play. I'll have to pick up Animal Crossing again since I stopped playing it for a bit. Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns is so dull that I want to drop it, but I'll keep on playing it until a certain point before "finishing" it. I need to get back to playing 3 Stars of Destiny, War of the Human Tanks, The Book of Legends, Saturday Morning RPG, The Last Express, and Expeditions: Conquistador. I started The Adventures of Shuggy and it's okay, might be able to finish it this month. Cook, Serve, Delicious! is great so far, looking to putting more time into that. I don't know if I'll have enough money to buy anything other than the odd bundle here and there in July, so hopefully I'll have a better ratio this month than I did in June.

Alright, I actually followed through and got to my NGPC games which super helped with my score this month. I mean, only -1? That's an accomplishment right there.But really, about a third of the games I've beaten this year came from this month alone. I know I'm impressed! And I'm not done yet. Still at least three more NGPC games I'm fixin' to beat soon.

I guess once I've depleted the NGPC library I'll move over my GB/C/A games.

  • Dark Souls - 3/5
  • Binding of Isaac - 3/5
  • Kingdom Rush

Backlog Blitz 2014 Score: -1

Finished Kingdom Rush. I had heard Brad on Giant Bomb talking about the iOS version of this game, and while it sounded interesting, I was turned off by the microtransaction model the game employed. When I saw it go on sale on Steam, I did some research on the PC version, and found that there were no microtransactions in this version at all, and that the game had been re-balanced as a result.

After playing the game to the credits (there seem to be more levels left after the credits though... I may update this review if/when I complete them) I found the difficulty balance to be a bit off in this version. For most of the levels, I found it to be extraordinarily easy, to the point that I was intentionally not building or upgrading towers to see how much cash I could finish levels with. And then, perhaps as a consequence of playing the earlier levels very flippantly, there was a massive difficulty spike on the last level before the credits.

It took me over half a dozen attempts to finally beat the "final" boss, and was left wishing that the game had ramped up the difficulty more gradually. That said, I did enjoy the game, and am looking forward to playing the additional levels, and playing the more challenging versions of the early levels which seem to be in the game.

Score - 3/5

Bit of a step back this month, due to finally getting a Wii U and some games. On the other hand, I managed to mostly resist the Steam sale at least. I should also be able to knock out a lot of games in July, and I don't foresee buying much at all, if anything.

3. Super Mario 3D World
4. Shovel Knight (Kickstarted)

So...interesting thing happened for the backlog. My PS3 died. Maybe it was God's way of getting me to stop playing Time and Eternity. I definitely plan to buy another one, but with the state of my backlog I don't really need to right now. I actually have plenty of great games to play on other systems. I'm hoping the PS3 gets a revision/price drop later this year, so I'm just going to hold out and play older/newer stuff. It should actually slow my buying as I won't be playing any PS3 games soon. Case in point, I bought nothing this month. And there was a Steam sale.

What I did do was play through Mana Khemia(yes, I have a PS2 backlog!). Liked it a lot, great cast, and the way it handled getting stronger was unique. I also gave up on Dokuro. I had more time to play it, and the more I played it the more I realized that this game was very annoying. It sort of hit me when I ran into the enemy who covers your screen in chalk dust. The designers must hate people to include something like that. Plus game, so no real loss. Going forward, I'm probably playing all 3 of the PS4 plus games this month, then back to PS2 for something.

- 07/13:
• Sonic Generations (PC) beaten on my new rig. Sonic Generations ~ Unleashed Project (PC) beaten too.​
- 07/09:
• Humble 2K Bundle purchased to double dip bioshock 1 and 2. I have no plans to play the other games in the foreseeable future, so i'm not going to count them as backlog.​
- 07/07:
• Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition Upgrade (PS4) beaten: As good as the original version, if not more. I love the music of the new stage "el canal". El intenso skill is good but it kind of breaks the game (it is too powerful). Looking forward to finishing it on hard to unlock the platinum.
- 07/04:
• Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death (PC) beaten: Holy Shit. The best 1€ game i've ever played. Clearly inspired by god of war, it's a bit unpolished, but it's actually decent for what it is. Bravo.
• Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition Upgrade (PS4) and Child of Light Complete Edition (Vita) purchased.​

I got some stuff here and there but money wasn't even the problem. I'm actually struggling playing any of the games in my backlog and I haven't even tracked them on my Backloggery. Steam also got me and went crazy getting the doujin games I've missed in a while. But I think this is still within my control and I can still clear most of them. I don't think there are any major games I'm going to buy in the next few months so I'm sure I'm going back to a positive score by then.

In which I spend the summer drought with not a single purchase yet finish games which do not affect points :/

Current Score: (-7)

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

Murdered: Soul Suspect (PS4) - Basically the only thing available late May / early June. The story and setting weren't ultimately as neat as I hoped they would be, but I liked the main character. I'd like to see a sequel if they work on the action elements.
Wolfenstein: The New Order (PS4) - Just awesome, all the way through. Might buy it if the PS Store puts a small discount on it just so I can see the alternate story.

Bought in June 2014 (0!!!):

Finished in June 2014 (1):

Ducktales Remastered (Steam) - Basically hustled through the last few levels so I could actually have a point in my favor this month. This is not a terrible game but it just wasn't an exciting remake. I'm not sure there could be an exciting remake.

Currently Playing:

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (PS Vita) - Filled up 3 sphere grids. Going to do the same for Yuna, Lulu, and Rikku now. Tidus I'll hold off on because I can't get his ultimate weapon until I beat Dark Bahamut. I've messed around in the Monster Arena before a while back, but not to this degree. It's kinda fun.
Dragon's Crown (PS Vita) - Rented on a whim. Level 6 now, playing a dwarf. It's OK but feels a little shallow. Not just talking about the art.
Killzone: Mercenary (PS Vita) - Couple of missions into this. For a handheld FPS, it's pretty impressive so far. Need to finish this soon so I have room to download Muramasa: Rebirth which just went up on PS+.
Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate (PS4) - Slowly going through this. Never was interested when it was released on PS3. It's OK but not holding my attention very long.
Watch Dogs (PS4) - 4 missions into Act 2. Done more of the side mission types at this point and I'm enjoying it overall now.

[*] HD Collections - As agreed upon in last years thread, if you haven't played the game before than the HD collection can count as a +/- 1; however, if you have already played it then it does not count towards your goal.
So, how hard-and-fast is this rule? I consider Ocarina of Time 3D and The Wind Waker HD as part of my backlog, but I guess I can't count them here as I played the originals?
