Managed to make a small dent in the backlog to start the year... though +4 doesn't really mean much with invisible PS+ games looming overhead.

EDIT: Ah, managed to finish Dragon Force tonight actually. It's a complete coincidence that I beat three games with "dragon" in the title, by the way. ;)

Does not count: Might and Magic X: Legacy (will add if beat)

I had a nice surplus of money from selling stuff on eBay, so I bought few games I wanted for some older collections and am planning on buying a few more. I was hoping to beat a couple more games before the end of the month, but Etrian Odyssey and Might and Magic X are kinda kicking my butt, so progress is slower than expected. Hopefully I'll at least get EO4 done before Bravely Default comes out... At least I'm still in the positive... for now. :p

Welp, suddenly got the urge to return to SMT IV after long months of hiatus and finished today with Neutral Ending. Really great game all around, from gameplay to story. It just poor part on my regard from having poor time management that put it to hiatus (well, lack of demons at later level contribute too since my enjoyment derived mainly from fusing them).

Not only SMT IV, but I've been replaying Jeanne D'arc as well. I should finish Pokemon X too I guess after unexplained lack of will to play.

With all the excitement around the holidays I kinda forgot to update my end of the year tally. Oh well let's start new! January was a good month for beating games...Unfortunately it was also a good month for buying games. I ended last year with a score of -131. Let's hope I can do better this year!

January: 7

Fortix 2 (01/02) - I enjoyed the first one and this added a little more to the formula. I especially enjoyed zombie mode as it really changes the strategy.

Journey of a Roach (01/04) - I got this in a bundle a while back and I almost didn't redeem the code. I'm glad I did as it was a fun little adventure game with some pretty clever puzzles and a good sense of humor.

Windowsill (01/05) - A decent little distraction. Not much to the game but the surreal style made it worth playing.

Lume (01/05) - A cute but very short adventure. Some of the puzzles are a little on the obscure side though.

Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians (01/11) - I'm going to need to try this again on a better computer. The rhythm gameplay didn't seem to match up with the music.

Cherry Three High Comedy Club (01/13) - It's basically a dating sim but instead of trying to convince a bunch of pretty young women to join your harem, you're trying to convince a bunch of pretty young women to join your school's comedy club. It was enjoyable and did provide a few laughs. I found it odd that they tried to change the setting to America seeing as everything in it is so very Japanese.

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords (01/26) - Holy crap I forgot how much this game cheats. I never thought I'd beat that final boss.

I've read in some posts here that rented games are counted as -/+ 1, so I guess borrowed games can count as well.

So for the first month of the year, I only got Cytus from the App Store since it was free and I liked it. Considering its also been a while since I last played a rhythm game. I kinda don't like the music selection though. Because of the Bravely Default demo, I was craving for some FF games so I borrowed Final Fantasy V Advance from a friend, and I really really love the game. Its probably my current favorite FF game. I really love the Job System. While I don't think the story is the best, it still has this classic feel to it which still makes it good, though it might seem underwhelming when compared with the story from other FF games. Music is also not Uematsus best, but still great.

Another game on my finished list is Vanquish. I actually borrowed it way back 2012 and I just realized I have it when I was cleaning my stuff. My friend still haven't asked me to return it though. Decided to play since I kinda got bored only playing FIFA on my PS3. I actually don't know how to rate the game, don't know if its good or bad since I'm not really a fan of shooters in general, but I did enjoy it however.

For now, I'm currently playing Final Fantasy IX since its been on PSN list and I never did play it before. Got the FF itch after beating FFV, and I'm currently on Disc 3 and I think I can beat the game just before the release of Bravely Default.

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

Battlefield 4 (PS4) - Currently renting this. Thinking about buying it as I haven't had any disconnects or other trouble yet. But, I'm going to give it a few more nights to see if I suck at multiplayer as much as I think I do.
Contrast (PS4) - PS Plus game so I'm not counting it on my backlog. This title was a neat idea but there are some big gameplay issues, so I was pretty glad when it was over.
Killzone: Shadow Fall (PS4) - Thought about picking this up during the sale but decided not to. The campaign was OK but not something I'd be excited to go back to, even now knowing that the last few missions are terrible and how to get through them with less frustration. It's weird that I prefer Battlefield 4's campaign when its levels were much less open.
Resogun (PS4) - PS Plus. This one's pretty cool but I'm not as attached to it as I was to Super Stardust HD.
Tearaway (PS Vita) - This is the first thing I rented once I got a Vita. The hype delivered. What an amazing title. It's admittedly simple and I don't know that I'd get much out of replaying it, but the first time through was delightful and brilliant with its use of the camera and touchpad.
Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (PS Vita) - I liked 999 OK, but this one has me salivating for the third in the series.

Bought in January 2014 (-5):

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Steam)
Broken Age (Steam)
Killzone: Mercenary (PS Vita)
Spelunky (PS Vita)
Car Mechanic Simulator 2014 (Steam)

Finished in January 2014 (2):

Super Mario 3D World (Wii U) - My son played the bulk of the levels and I helped him go back to many of them to get green stars. We beat the last world together and opened up all but the final secret world. That one requires getting all green stars, all badges, reaching the top of every flag, and I think also doing that with all four characters? It's insane but he's apparently assigned himself the arduous task of completing these requirements.
Uncharted: Golden Abyss (PS Vita) - While this doesn't stand up to console Uncharted games, it's an impressive little handheld title.

Currently Playing:

Broken Age(Steam) - Need to pick up the pace in this, even if the second part doesn't come out for months.
Car Mechanic Simulator 2014 (Steam) - Once I saw this ridiculous game on GiantBomb I had to have it. Currently I'm mainlining it and am somehow infatuated. I'm about 40 invoices done of 75 in the career mode.
DuckTales Remastered (Steam) - This is one of those games from my childhood that make me wonder why I ever enjoyed it.
Persona 4 Golden (PS Vita) - On the path to save Kanji.
Spelunky (Steam / PS Vita) - I can't stop playing this but I also can't seem to get any better. Guess I fire it up as a distraction too often and I'm not focusing enough.
Volgarr The Viking (Steam) - Two levels down.

I've read in some posts here that rented games are counted as -/+ 1, so I guess borrowed games can count as well.
my personal rule is if it goes into your actual real list of games to play, not the maybe list or probably never list, then it counts as a +1 when you get it and a -1 when you beat it.

free or bundled stuff I download just because and I don't really intend on playing or if I do, it's just to mess around and I don't care to actually beat, that stuff I don't count. that's just me, though

- 02/21:
• TxK (Vita) beaten: Amazing, and addictive as hell. The music is top notch. The yak heads can go fuck themselves.
- 02/19:
• Castlevania LOS Mirror of Fate (3DS) beaten: Not bad at all. The soundtrack is great, as expected. And the secret scene is a joke.

• My body is now ready for CLOS2.
- 02/17:
• Toukiden (Vita) purchased. I also borrowed my brother's 3ds and Castlevania LOS Mirror Of Fate so i can play it before CLOS2 launches (i would have bought it on pc, but konami gonna konami).​
- 02/13:
• Castlevania LOS Ultimate Edition (DLC) (PC) beaten: This dlc is really, really short, and the design is awful in a way i cannot describe. And to think that they are still asking 18€ for this...what an embarrassment.
- 02/12:
• TxK (Vita) purchased. I also completed the main story from Castlevania LOS Ultimate Edition, so now is the DLC turn.​
- 02/04:
• Dead Space 3 (PS3) beaten: Acceptable as a coop action game, but other than that, it is really mediocre. Too many "uncharted" scenes for my taste. It is a shame to see the trilogy end like this.

Pokemon Bank release (or to be exact, Bridgette) reignite my will to finish Pokemon X. The 3D transtition is great, but the other feels so lacking. I know they have colossal job making all of that 3D models, but 70-ish new Pokemon is too few. It's really different experience from other Pokemon that I have played before, and felt more inferior at that. Also the story sucks, your friends except Calem/Serena are suck and I never hated pokemon character as much as them.

I need to finish Nier.

Resident Evil: Revelations (360) is beat. I LOVED it!! Felt more like classic RE and some of the darker corridors on the ship were tense, man. I want more like this

Puts me at +2

Beat (+2):
1. The Last of Us - 1/2
2. Fire Emblem: Awakening - 1/31
3. Resident Evil: Revelations (360) - 2/7

Bought (-1):
1. Resident Evil: Revelations (360) - 1/2

Removed due to not liking (does not count as +1 beat but does count as -1 to backlog):
0

Backlog is now at 2.

Virtue's Last Reward on 3DS is next. Well actually The Wolf Among Us Episode 2 is but I'm not counting those individually, so it'll be a +/- 1 once all 5 are in and beat.

Other Notes:
Pre-ordered games: Steins;Gate
Currently Playing: Drakengard 2 | Bravely Default | Might and Magic X
Does not count: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (upgrade from Wii VC to Wii U VC; previously beat)

I added Might and Magic to the January bought list, since I do plan on beating it and am counting it on my backlog anyway. Bought a couple more games too, so now I'm in the negative, but I expected that. I'm sure I can knock out Wolf Among Us tomorrow, but otherwise progress will be slow, between playing Bravely Default and transferring Pokemon up to Y. March will probably be a better month for the numbers.

I don't know if this is the proper thread or not. I have 65 or more backlog of steam games. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqvE_C1ev6jEdEFMSmJYcFZzRTFiMWhWMjlCblNfSkE&usp=sharing#gid=0 I've decided to do something about it instead of just talking about it on gaf :) I've also wanted to get into streaming on Twitch as well, so I thought why not combine the two. I will live steam my journey to finish my backlog of games. My method for choosing will be to put my backlog of games through random.org. If something like Dead Space 1,2,3 gets picked, then I will play all three games in a row starting from 1. I will broadcast that process live. You can watch if you choose to @ http://www.twitch.tv/costanzathemage Let me know if you are from GAF. My schedule will be M-Sat 12-8 CST and Sunday 1-9 CST.

Got Bioshock Infinite off PS+ as per plan. Finished Bioshock Infinite as per plan. Man, what a ride. I couldn't put it down, I basically shut out the rest of my life for every spare minute for 4 days straight. That game was really something special. I never actually finished the first game (got like 90% of the way through), this kind of makes me want to go back to it. But, I don't own it any more so I've gotta stick to the plan. Anyway, not much more I can say about BI that hasn't been said (at least in a thread like this) save that if I had finished it earlier, it definitely would have rated higher in my games of the year list. Really good stuff.

2014:

Beaten: 7
Bought: 1

Score: 6


I think I've got to be close to a personal record for most games beaten in a month, if I haven't hit it already. I think I've still got time for a couple more.

Spent the last 3 weeks platinuming Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward. Man, that was a lot longer than I expected, my game clock was over 50 hours at the end. Some sections they go on and on...along with Uncharted this was what sold me my Vita, and it was worth it though. Really great experience, though I do wish that in the inevitable sequel they would get rid of the thing where you have to go through the same story beats over and over and over and over and over. It made the middle portion of the game feel like a real grind at times. But nonetheless, a totally worthy followup to 999.

Also downloaded Brothers off PS+, I'll try to get to that this week.

I beat Streetpass Quest. As it was free with my 2DS, I'm not counting it in my score. I unlocked Streetpass Quest 2.

I did beat an actual game: Professor Layton and Pandora's Box (aka the Diabolical Box). I'm already planning on buying the third Professor Layton game, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey and Radiant Historia sometime this month.

Picked up my PS4 with Killzone since the last update and I just pre-purchased South Park and Thief from Green Man Gaming, so 1 behind now. Been mostly focusing on BF4 online and Association mode on 2K14 of late, so progress has been slow.

Hoping to beat Killzone this weekend, then beat at least one other game before Thief hits.

Up 9 so far for the year, but I did pick up an RPG and am planning on picking up Donkey Kong and Strider this month, in addition to redeeming my free copy of Thief from a graphics card purchase at the end of last year. March is also looking packed with great games as well, so I'm glad I'm ahead for the time being.
