Update: 4/30/14

Another disappointing month backlog-wise. I keep getting caught up in lengthy games that have seemingly no end. Logged another 150-200 hours across NBA 2K11, Skyrim, and Battlefield with none of them being even remotely 'completed'.

Monthly Score for April: -30

Monthly Score for January: 0
Monthly Score for February: -5
Monthly Score for March: -17
Overall 2014 Score: -52


Okay, this was a bad month for the backlog. Could have gone better. But this is it, this is the month that I break into the positive monthly score.

So, for this month's roundup, Dysfunctional Systems: Episode One: Learning to Manage Chaos is a nice little visual novel that's a little too short for my tastes, but has great music. The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords: Anniversary Edition was meh. VVVVVV was kind of cool, and also has a great OST. I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream is a point and click adventure game that everyone should experience at least once. Anodyne is good, but you should focus more on the surreal atmosphere rather than the gameplay.

For May, I'm very close to beating Shin Megami Tensei (neutral path, about to face the final final boss, which I'll do later in the day when I wake up), Yoshi's New Island, and New Super Mario Bros. 2, about halfway through both Shantae and Bastion, no idea how far in Breath of Fire, and not very far in Zelda II. I'm going to try to limit my spending this month, but I doubt that'll help. I know I'll purchase Kirby: Triple Deluxe day one, likely along with Always Sometimes Monsters, but that's really it for must have purchases for me this month.

Current Score: (-7)

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

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes (PS4) - Returned this to Gamefly not long after finishing the main mission. After that ending, I stopped caring about any additional content. Not really excited for Phantom Pain at this point, I'm pretty much done with Kojima's nonsense.
Lone Survivor (PS Vita) - PS+ game. Got the "blue" ending. It was alright but I was hoping for some more substantial explanations to the various characters. Maybe there's a better denouement with a different ending? Might download it again one day and use a FAQ to see if there's more content to discover.

Bought in April 2014 (-2):

Titanfall (Origin)
Dark Souls II (Steam)

Finished in April 2014 (1):

South Park: The Stick of Truth (Steam) - Just fantastic from start to finish. Feels like Obsidian and Parker / Stone really put their all into this product.

Currently Playing:

Mercenary Kings (PS4) - Got a little further but there's still quite a lot of missions left. I'm on the third tier but stopped playing after trying a rescue mission twice and failing to find the last hostage both times. At least it's my fault I'm stuck this time instead of a bug keeping me from proceeding.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (PS Vita) - Finishing up the Mt. Gagazet area. For some reason I've always really dug the monster catching aspect of this game though never got far with battling the unique monsters it unlocks.
Diablo III: Reaper of Souls (PC) - I'm eager to see Act V but I didn't want to go back to any of my old characters so I started a Crusader. Only done with Act I so far.
Trials Fusion (PS4) - Rented it and played a lot of the single player content. It sure is a Trials game but for some reason I don't feel compelled to own it. Maybe someday.
Dark Souls II (Steam) - Now that I have the PC version this is all I'm focusing on for a while. Love the game but the pacing feels weird. I hit level 56 last night but still feel like I'm very early in the game.
Titanfall (Origin) - Bought this on impulse when there was a sale for about $38. I enjoyed the beta but I'm kinda regretting the purchase because I don't have much time for it. Also this game for some reason is really showing my PC's age.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - Rented on PS4 because I was curious to see how it runs. Yea, it blows away the quality of my copy on Steam, and now wish I had played this version start to finish. Definitely going to double-dip on this version someday when I see a sale.
Thomas Was Alone (PS Vita) - Downloaded via PS+ last night and got up to level 4.0. Didn't know much about this going in and wasn't expecting the narration. Pretty enjoyable thus far.

I've been plugging away at Fluidity: Spin Cycle and Yoshi's Island DS so I should be able to knock those out this month. I also plan to start streaming again so that should help some as well. And I'm probably going to go on an NGPC binge and knock out a bunch of those. So hopefully May should have a lot of completed games.

April update: Just two more this month. I haven't bought anything, though, so it's still a success. I've been reading a lot more in place of playing games. I have to say, I feel like a better person. Or maybe that's because I made Rage one of my two games...

April update: Barely in the positive this month, but hey, it's still progress. I've been playing mostly adventure games, possibly in anticipation for Moebius' release... but ironically Moebius turned out to be the worse of the lot. :( Also, the original Metroid is way easier than I remembered from when I was a kid. I don't know why I never just drew a damn map.

Games acquired in April (-5)

1. Retro City Rampage (PSN sale)
2. Tokyo Jungle (PSN sale)
3. Moebius: Empire Rising (Kickstarted)
4. Blackwell Epiphany (Pre-ordered when I beat the other games last month)
5. Gray Matter (No real excuse, other than it's finally on Steam)

Games completed in April (+6)

1. Sam & Max: Season 2

2014 running total: +7

Now playing:

Dungeon Keeper Gold
Mega Man Anniversary Collection

This month went pretty badly, honestly. In between moving and finals, I had no time for gaming, really, and what little time I did have went to DanganRonpa and Demon Gaze. I haven't even downloaded TWAU Episode 3 yet! Next month will probably go a little better, as I only plan on buying Drakengard 3 and Super Time Force, and have a little more free time, but I guess we'll see.

Beat Tearaway and DuckTales: Remastered in April.
I think every Vita owner should buy and play Tearaway. The best game I played on Vita so far. Such a lovely, little game.
And I just beat Beyond: Two Souls. Liked it a lot more than Heavy Rain. Altough I hate the (Don't click unless you've beaten Beyond)
final twist ... come on really?

Been a while since my last update, mostly because I waited until I finished Bravely Default. 1st half of the game is great, 2nd not so much. Between that and Mercenary Kings, very grindy month. Mario is also almost done, that's been good as well. For buying, it's been a bad month. 2 HBs, some $1 TT games, then that PSN sale finished me off.

Yes, I even bought Time and Eternity. Considering my backlog, that might be a cry for help. Sadly, I'm even considering playing it sooner rather than later. I'm also including a score that ignores bundle games from now on. I know it's not official, it just makes me feel better. -4 seems doable.

And Dokuro is in some kind of half-finished backlog hell. It's decent enough, I'm just busy.

- 05/21:
• Dead Space 3 ~ Awakened (PS3) (DLC) (S) beaten: I'm surprised. I liked it for what it is, when i was expecting the complete opposite (it's funny, because i thought i would like dead space 2 severed dlc and not this one). And now to wait for the next sequel.
Mass Effect 3 amirite?
- 05/17:
• Soul Calibur V (PS3) purchased and beaten: There is not much singleplayer content, but the gameplay changes are interesting (maybe too dumbed down though).​
- 05/11:
• Sonic 4 Episode II (PC) beaten: They improved the physics in comparison to the first game and the graphics are easy to the eye, but the stages design is still terrible, with a few exceptions. I didn't like how forced the cooperative moves are either. Meh.​
- 05/06:
• Sonic Hit Collection (PC) purchased. I'm only going to count as backlog the games i plan to play (and that i have not played yet): Sonic 4 Episode II. I already played the others except for the two racing games, which i have no plans to play for the immediate future (or ever for that matter).​

• Deadlight (PC) and Legendary (PC) received as gifts. And that's it for this year steam summer sales.​
• Nope, that wasn't it. I won Dark Souls II (PC) on a gaf giveaway.​
- 06/28:
• Alice Madness Returns (PC) and System Shock 2 (PC) purchased on Steam. Dead Space 2 (PC) double dipped.​
- 06/26:
• Mirror's Edge (PC) double dipped on Steam. I also got Guacamelee! Gold Edition (PC) on a gaf giveaway and Adventures of Shuggy (PC) for free.​
- 06/24:
• My brother trolled me again, this time with a copy of Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death (PC). I also double dipped Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition (PC) on Steam.​
- 06/22:
• Fez (Vita) beaten: Neat little game, really colorful, with a relaxing soundtrack and actual challenging puzzles (which is rare nowadays). New game + is a go.
- 06/18:
• Fez (Vita) purchased on PSN.​
- 06/12:
• Skullgirls (PC) beaten: I wasn't particularly impressed by this game when i tried the ps3 demo, but now that i had more characters and time to spend into it, this game is really fun. The soundtrack is fantastic (that Michiru Yamane) and the gameplay reminds me of guilty gear, which is my favourite saga of fighting games, so it's a good thing.
- 06/08:
• I got Battlefield 3 (PC) and Sniper Elite V2 (PC) for free, and I bought Skullgirls (PC) on GMG.​
• Borderlands (PS3) beaten: I beat it after a three-year hiatus. I didn't like it much, but it was kind of fun to play on coop.
- 06/07:
• My brother gave me a copy of Injustice Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition (PC) as a Gift, for some reason :lol.​
- 06/01:
• Silent Hill Book of Memories (Vita) beaten: It was entertaining (specially if you forget that it's called silent hill). The soundtrack and gameplay are acceptable, and the karma + notes system is interesting.

So. I fucked up. I bought the Sega Genesis 48 pack for $5 and kept 45 of the games for myself while giving away 3 of the others. Not the best idea for the backlog. But on the bright side, a lot of those games can be finished in under an hour or two, so it's not as devastating as it looks; I know I can beat Altered Beast in like fifteen minutes, for example. You can tell the exact moment when I got back into PC gaming just by looking at the numbers for each month. Might be able to stay relatively low for June, but knowing myself I'll find a way to accumulate -100 for my score.

I also finished ten games this month, the most I've finished in one month since January, though a lot of them were pretty easy to finish thanks to having played them prior to this month. SMT on iOS is a great port that I definitely recommend if your a fan of the franchise or a fan of JRPGs. YNI is decent and people give it more shit than I think it deserves, honestly. Shantae was okay, nothing special. Bastion was a great game, the OST was wonderful, and the narration was great. NSMB 2 was okay, not too bad, and I enjoyed it more than the DS or Wii game so there's that. Breath of Fire for the GBA was a decent port of a decent game, and is a straightforward standard JRPG. Vanguard Princess is the most shameful game I'll probably play all year and isn't really good. Escape Goat is decent, but nothing really that great or anything like that. Always Sometimes Monsters is a game that I really liked and think deserves more positive attention rather than the most worthless tags I've seen applied to a game on Steam. Zelda II was good, and I understand why a lot of people love it, but it doesn't really do it for me. Of the games I've just talked about, five of them already have small write ups in the 52 games challenge thread, so I don't feel the need to go into more detail here; the other five will have small write ups eventually as well.

For June, I'm going to at least try to finish Millennium: A New Hope early on this month if I can figure out what to do in the final area. 3 Stars of Destiny is another priority as is War of the Human Tanks, and the Book of Legends is low on the priority list. I'm still chugging through AC:NL trying to get all of the house upgrades before I "finish" playing it. I also started Harvest Moon 3D: The Tale of Two Towns after hearing about the new HM game coming over. I'm not having a lot of fun with it, but I'll trudge through it. I need to start playing Saturday Morning RPG at some point, no idea when. Dragon Warrior/Quest hasn't really gotten anywhere yet, but I'll get around to it eventually. Not much I know of that I'll get this month, might pick up Gods Will Be Watching, but I'm not sure yet, I've already got a key for Noir Syndrome coming, so there's that. I'm also really disappointed that Unrest was pushed back to July, I was really looking forward to picking that up. I get the feeling that I'll have the itch to play a few games from start to finish this month but I'm not sure which I'll do; the most likely candidate so far is Harvester.

I'm already well on my way to beating my record for most games beat in a year. But I just buy way too many fucking video games. I'm SUPER close to beating Fluidity: Spin Cycle and I'm like halfway through Yoshi's New Island so those will definitely be beaten in June.

I really need to crack down on my NGPC games. Most are fighters so should be really easy to blow through.

Fucked up and fell behind in May. Managed to put away one addiction (2K14), but replaced it with another (MLB The Show 14). Doing this wrong.

I don't think there are any huge releases for a couple of months, so I'm hoping to get back into a positive score by September.

"Achieved" in May in bold.
