    !UpdateStatus 1/33

    So, this is starting off pretty good. I just finished Half Life 2. Only had 3 chapters to go. Great final I think but if I would have finished it without knowing I have Episode 1 waiting for me right there, I would have been slightly pissed at the ending.

    So, my new list:

    Red is currently playing
    Lime is finished


    - Stalker SoC - Finish (Haven't played yet)
    - Red Alert 3 - Finish all campaigns (Halfway through the first one now)
    - Half Life 2
    - Half Life 2 Episode 1 - Finish (Haven't played yet)
    - Half Life 2 Episode 2 - Finish (Haven't played yet)
    - Colonization - Finish one game on medium difficulty or something (Already played a few hours)
    - Empire: Total War - Finish one game (If I can warm up to the scenario somehow, otherwise it's gone)
    - Modern Warfare 2 - Finish Campaign (4th mission or something)
    - Defense Grid - Finish (Halfway through, I think)
    - Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War 2 - Finish (4th mission or something)
    - Torchlight - Defeat the final boss on Very Hard in Hardcore mode (Already played the heck out of it)
    - Dragon Age: Origins - Finish Campaign (At about 10% I think)
    - Warcraft III: Frozen Throne - Finish Campaign (Only played through Reign of Chaos)
    - Gothic 2 - Finish Main Quest (a few hours in)
    - Disciples 2 - Finish (Haven't played yet)
    - Saints Row 2 - Finish (Haven't played yet. Damn 5$ Steam sale)
    - Prototype - Finish (a few hours in)
    - Unreal Tournamet 3 - Play through campaign and some Multiplayer
    - Heroes of Might an Magic V - Finish (Haven't played yet)
    - World in Conflict - Play through campaign (A few missions in)


    - Gears of War - Finish (A few hours in)
    - Ninja Gaiden 2 - Finish (A few hours in)
    - Advanced Warfighter - Finish (Haven't played yet)
    - Braid - Finish (I think I may be too stupid for this game though. Makes my brain hurt)
    - Shadow Complex - Finish (A few hours in)


    - Warhammer 40k: Squad Command - Finish (5th mission)
    - Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions - Finish (20 hours in)
    - Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness - Finish the story mode (20 hours in)

    - Mega Man Powerred Up - Finish (3 bosses down)


    - Super Mario Galaxy - Finish with Luigi (currently at 80 Stars)
    - Super Mario 64 - Finish

    That puts me at

    Knocked about 5 games off of my backlog today... by trading them in. They were the games I got a few weeks ago for $5 each and for some reason EB in Canada has some pretty crazy trade-in values, I took advantage.

    Managed to get fully paid pre-orders for Mass Effect 2, Final Fantasy XIII, and God of War III. I think I made out pretty good.

    Just finished off Prey. It got better towards the end, then bad again, but the ending scene was very cool. Overall, it's a hodgepodge of great and lousy. Definately worth playing for the bargain price I got it for, but I can't say I'll ever play it again. Or remember very much of it tomorrow.

    I might give Alien Shooter a spin next, not sure.

    Here we go. Taking the plunge finally.


    I'll post my full backlog, even though I don't really count the Wii. I love the Wii, but because I have so much shit on the XBox, I've let my girlfriend borrow my Wii, and it kinda sits at her house as my Red Ring Backup machine. I will, someday, get the RRoD, and I am totally prepared with good shit when that happens. So while I will do my best to follow the rules, I hope you guys will allow me a little wiggle room - as once I clear my backlog for a console, I'll allow myself to get more for THAT console only.

    Sooooooo here we go. Lime means currently actively progressing through. Red now means complete!:


    Deadly Premonition - Game of the year. No, I'm not kidding.
    Assassins Creed 2 - Finished! What the hell did I just watch? Overall, loved it.
    NHL09 - The upgrade system really flustered me, so my goal here is to beat the playoffs undefeated to unlock whatever it was I wanted when I decided to do that, then take that upgrade and complete a season.
    The Darkness - Got it for free about 2 years ago in an Amazon deal. Started it, and it didn't grab me (because it was free with BioShock, and I wanted to play that), so I'll be giving it another shake.
    MLB2k9 - JUST bought it for $7 because a friend has it and I figured its a cheap way to catch up with him online playing something. Will remove when I feel I've gotten my fill. At $7, there's no real goal, so if I play a couple games with him that's $7 worth.
    Half Life 2 - I had no idea Half Life 2 and Half Life 2: Ep 1 were two different games. I'm at the antlion part, and I fucking hate vehicles in this game. The boat made me sick - literally. So this is a wall of sorts. I am really, really dreading finishing this game, despite the praise it gets. The vehicles are just so, soulsuckingly unfun.
    Half Life 2: Ep 1 - When I got The Orange Box I beat Portal and put it away. I pulled it out later and tried Half Life, but never really got that into it. I feel like the critical accliam it's gotten means it deserves another go.
    Half Life 2: Ep 2 - See above.
    Virtua Tennis 3 - I'm #1! So satisfying!
    Pac Man CE - 2 out of the 5 (6?) modes done.
    Luxor 2 - Think I'm like 80% done with this.
    Viva Pinata TIP - What a crazy obsession I had with this game. I played it non stop forever. Getting all variants and wildcards and all sorts of crazy shit. I'd like to go back, with a clear, non-obsessive head, and just get all species. I've got to be pretty damn close.
    Beautiful Katmari - I can not beat the final stage. I've tried sporatically for years. I must do this.
    Tomb Raider Anniversary - In Egypt and using a walkthrough just to finish it. It feels cheap, but I like the game, and hate wondering "Am I missing the jump because Im missing the jump, or because Im not going the right way?"
    Fallout 3 DLC - I beat and loved Fallout. I bought all the DLC, but still haven't done any of it. I MAY - if this backlog thing takes - decide to just end my good dude's quest, and start a fresh, evil quest, doing the DLC along that journey.
    Worms 2: Armeggedon - Man I hate playing this single player. But I should.
    Left 4 Dead 2 - All campaigns complete! Moved the game to my bonus goals.
    Overlord - This will be a rough one. I got about 75% done, and quit. Its now been about 8 months. Everytime I put it in I have no idea how to play or what to do. And get slaughtered. I either need to man up and restart, or read a walkthrough up to where I'm at so I can remember what I'm supposed to be doing.
    Dead Space - Complete. Horrifying. Awesome. Will be doing a second run at some point after my nerves calm down.
    Penny Arcade Episode 2 - Complete! Great game, great fun, WILL NEVER SEE #3.
    GTA4: The Ballad of Gay Tony - Complete! Awesome!

    Still Working on - stuff I consider done, but I still have personal goals with them:
    Street Fighter 4 - Want to unlock all fighters and all colors
    Halo 3 - Ive beaten the game, but for some reason I dont have the achievements for The Road or that horrible Flood level. I'd kinda like them...
    Halo ODST - all firefights
    Peggle - All challenges DONE!
    Resident Evil 5 - Beat on Veteran
    50 Cent: Blood on the Sand - Beat on Hard. I loved this game.
    X-Men Origins Wolverine - Beat on Hard.
    Burnout Paradise - Get my Burnout Licence. I may actually move this up to the actual backlog. After getting my "A" license I figured I was done, but I guess that's not REALLY the end...
    Web of Shadows - All Spider Icons. Only like 700 left.
    Shadow Complex - Minimalist.
    Chime - All 5 stages done in 3 minute mode. 2/5 complete.
    Left 4 Dead 2 - Get the gnome achievement. Win 15 scavange matches.
    Deadly Premonition - 1000/1000



    Madworld - Played it once for 10 minutes. Its cool. I may get to it soon.
    Godfather: Blackhand Edition - It was like the 3rd game I ever bought for the Wii. I played for like 5 hours and just did not like it. I'm willing to give it a second chance, I guess...
    Endless Ocean - Complete, just in time for Endless Ocean 2! Saw the great mother, the credits, and the sunken ship! Good enough for me!
    Endless Ocean 2: Blue World - Done! Fan-fucking-tastic! Better than the 1st in every way! See bonus goals!
    World of Goo- Maybe 2/3 done? Its relaxing. I'm in no rush to finish it.
    de Blob - 3 stages complete. It's a constant battle between wanting to 100% each level because they're fun, and just wanting to get to the end because you can't save mid level and they're so, so long.

    Still Working on - stuff I consider done, but I still have personal goals with them:
    Endless Ocean 2: Blue World - Do everything. I only saw the credits in the main game, so there's so many things left. Just do all gazillion side missions. This is the only Wii game I think I'll ever play again.



    Apollo Justice - Fuck you, Lamior case. I can NOT get myself to finish it.
    Scribblenauts - Love it. Bought it at the launch party in NYC. Will complete it at a nice pace.

    Still Working on - stuff I consider done, but I still have personal goals with them:
    The Rub Rabbits - I want to beat the side story you get after beating the main game.
    Ninja Gaiden DS - It's not done, but it's not actually part of the backlog because I'm bored of it. It's fun for what it is, but its so monotonous. I want to beat it, but it will take an extended trip somewhere to do it, and I don't want to force myself to beat something I don't like, simply to allow myself to get something I'll enjoy, so it goes here.

    So my totals:

    So my birthday was yesterday, which means I need to add Brutal Legend and House of the Dead: Overkill to my backlog. Gonna dive into BL today. I know it's not the game I wanted it to be, but that doesn't mean it won't be good. Excited to see how it is, even though I loved the (apparently misleading) demo.

    Also finished with 50 Cent for now. Got all the acheivements I'm interested in. Game was fun, but I don't think I coudl stomach playing through it on hard. Pretty repetitive. Definitely worth the 10 bucks I spent on it, though.

    Like I said, I got and started Bayonetta. At least it seems like a game I'll probably beat. White Knight Chronicles, Mass Effect 2, and Bioshock 2 are all getting a pass. My goal is 10 games beaten before I get a new one (FF13 excepted).

    I think Prey had a pretty strong first and last act, but the middle was pretty uncreative. It was kind of weird how dedicated the main character was to finding his girlfriend, but was content to randomly hopping through portals with no idea where he was or where he was going most of the time.

    One of my favorite parts was towards the end where the music kicks up and the main guy is hell bent on killing as many guys as possible, shouting after each one you kill. It was awesome in an 80's movie kind of way.

    Yeah. It's a great game. Fantastic multiplayer. Not so much fun single-player, IMO, but still a solid experience. Expect a lot of grinding for items, though. Not sure if you like that or not. It's very Diablo 2-style.

    Those ruined it for many people. I spent like $30 and ended up with 6 new games. The D2D sales were also present, but less obvious.

    The desire to acquire more games for the new Wii is getting stronger. I have been so good about not getting anything. I must be strong while ME2 and SSF4 are released, also.

    Well - here's a decade's worth of games I bought that I never got around to finishing on the PC, Xbox 360, DS, Xbox, PS2 and Gamecube. I'm sparing you my Dreamcast and PS1 backlogs. Things got really bad in the area of PC games once I started buying from Steam, GOG and Impulse last year.

    My main New Year's resolution this year is to save money so that my wife and I can put more money into fixing up our house, getting new furniture, etc., hence this list. A lot of these games I played for a few hours and then never touched them again. A few of them I played for hours, sometimes upwards of a month, but never finished (mainly sandbox stuff like GTA and Oblivion - you get the idea). And yes, there are a few here that got an hour's play and never darkened my monitor/TV screen again.

    All goals here are assumed to be simply "finish the game once" unless otherwise stated. For games that have multiple modes of play, we'll just assume it means I'm going to beat whatever the standard mode is unless otherwise specified.

    I don't expect to finish everything here. This is simply a way of laying everything out so I know what I have - just need to go the whole year without buying a new game.

    I plan on posting updates on my progress once a week. Join me in my madness!

    I'll man up right now. I'm buying Darksiders tonight (I am trading in some old games I never play, but unfortunately aren't on my backlog (Warhawk, SC4 and GT5 Prologue)). Mainly getting it now because the store I'm going to has a War figure with it, and it should look neat sitting next to my Batarang and Ezio.
