    Welcome to the thread. I don't think it actually helps anyone stop buying games, but it's fun to talk about our minor victories and much larger defeats. I dread the coming Summer Sale...

    I decided to hop into New Vegas last night instead of MGS3. I think MGS3 intimidates me; there's no way it can be as good as people have told me over the years.

    So I'm rerely done with games once I beat them. I like to go back and do as much as possible and get Trophies. My list reflects that, as some games I have a specific objective for. Any I don't have one for means its my first time playing that game. Usually these games don't get taken off the list once beaten, they get a specific objective (different endings, 100%, harder difficulty)

    I also plan on falling off the wagon a lot, since the call of new games on my PS4 is too great. I will update them into my backlog when as I get them. Also have been looking for a copy of Dragon Age 2 and Red Fraction Gurillia for ever, to no avail.

    !FallOffTheWagon - 12/161

    It's been a little while. I went a little nuts on my summer gaming plans. Just a little. My life lacked action, so I pumped in No More Heroes, the Devil May Cry HD Collection, Muramasa Rebirth, and to break the combo, Persona 4 Golden. Then Soul Sacrifice Delta went and came out today, so I had to pile that on.

    I've got a busy summer ahead of me, from the looks of it. The only game I don't think I'll be able to resist picking up on sale is Revengeance. I need to complete my unfinished Platinum collection one of these days. Or, like, beat some of those games.

    No More Heroes if pretty good, but if you haven't already you should play Desperate Struggle as it's so much better than the original IMO.

    Revengeance is the epitome of short and sweet. Platinum Games is criminally under-appreciated.

  • SightTDWSightTDW Registered User regular
    I need to get back in there. I got as far as Shinobu a few weeks ago. The game's pretty rad once I got past my panic of "why isn't the widescreen working" and realized that the game wasn't 16:9. I played it forever ago, and it was crazy tough in my head, but its been a good balance so far. Every boss is giving 1-2 deaths before I figure it out, but that's how it aught to be.

    But then I got distracted by Devil May Cry. I'm getting huge nostalgia rushes for a game that terrified me when I was younger.

    !Update!

    My first update!!

    !FallOffTheWagon +2 0/84

    ...and my first wagon fall....

    I was waiting Super Time Force ever since I first heard about it, so when it finally came out I had no choice but to get it!

    Also, the moment I started playing NES Remix, I knew I needed NES Remix 2!

    But that's okay, because although I took two steps back, I also took four steps forward.

    !Beaten +4 4/84

    Abobo’s Big Adventure: A great trip down 8-bit memory lane with a twisted sense of humor. It was annoying to have to download Joy2key to properly map the buttons but it was worth it in the end. An easy recommendation to anybody who has fond memories of the NES. 4/5

    Amazing Spider-man 2 (PLATINUM): Sometimes, I dream of a world in which Rocksteady, or Volition, or Avalanche get their hands on Spider-man and get all the time and money they need to make their game without a movie license getting in the way. Hell, I think that if Beenox were given the proper resources and freedom that they could put out a game on par with the Arkham games. Shattered Dimensions was great. It’s just that as long as Activision wants nothing more than to crap out a passable game, that’s all Spider-man fans will get. Amazing Spider-man 2 isn’t bad by any means, it’s just doesn’t live up to the full potential of the IP. 3.5/5

    Oniken: A great 8-bit throwback that should please anybody with a soft spot for Strider or the aesthetics of 80s anime (Think Fist of the North Star). There’s even a bonus level that harkens back to Contra. The main game is about an hour long and isn’t too challenging, but true masochists can attempt the boss rush and hardcore (one life, no continues) mode. 4/5

    GRID: A very love/hate game for me. I liked how the game made me feel like I was on a racing team with hiring partners and managing sponsorships and I liked the variety of real circuits with urban streetscapes, but the difficulty felt uneven, your car is very prone to spinouts and the game makes you play a bit too aggressively to get ahead of the pack. It’s an alright simcade racer, but at the same time it makes me wish PGR was still around. Hopefully GRID Autosport will be a bit more refined. 3/5

    !UpdateStatus 13/162

    I just cleared off Muramasa Rebirth. That was a pretty amazing ride. Beautiful landscapes with dual storylines that came together incredibly smoothly. Not to mention, that combat is just plain fun. Play on Chaos mode if you're going to play it at all. Once you get the hang of the cooking system and the very generous invincibility frames on skills the combat becomes smooth as butter. I only got so far as the second endings on both characters before calling it a day. I shamefully saw all you needed to do for the final endings and hit up Youtube. I'm still looking forward to trying the DLC. Those sly bastards put it up on sale the day I finished the game. Go figure.

    EDIT: I removed F.E.A.R. 2 and 3 from my backlog. The first was a blast, but I'm about halfway through 2 and I'm just bored. The game is just easy and uninspired, and its a huge shame. I wasn't having fun.

    EDIT 2: Devil May Cry HD down! Hot damn was that fun. I played a lot of it forever ago, but it was way too hard for me when I was that young. Getting back on that horse was so so worth it. As an open question to anyone with an opinion here, is DMC2 worth the playthrough? I'm tempted to skip straight to 3.

    I really like what you guys are doing here. My backlog is insane, mostly because I never pass up a good deal on games and I hit too many garage sales with good deals. So while I'm beating a game or two each week pretty regularly, I'm usually adding at least a game or 2 each week.

    Keep on fighting the good fight, gents and ladies.

    !Update !Beaten+4 !FallOffTheWagon+9 71/146/3

    Totally forgot to put Wii-U and 3DS stuff on this list, and Phoenix Wright + Luigi's Mansion + DKC 2. Fixed.

    Beat the Binding of Isaac, but found it quite disturbing, many times. Most time spent flinching at screen in 2014. Compelling and engaging, without being fun. Will replay multiple times now and then, for unlocks and achievements. Beat Shadowrun Returns, a delightful frolic into the land of putting all skill points into some categories (as opposed to all points into all categories, being proficient at all things, being rather overpowered and dull). Incredibly well-written.

    I am limiting myself to ONE Summer Sale purchase this year: Blackguards + Untold Legends DLC, Memoria, The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, Memoria, and Papers, Please. Got Dark Souls a few weeks ago. Can't stop playing XCOM over and over again lately. Actually compelled to earn all the achievements.

    The free games with gold is killing my backlog. I am trying to put those games on hold until I finish up the ones I purchased but I cannot stop myself. Oh well. I think I am currently sitting at about 15 games unplayed as I am pretty good at finishing a game once I start it. I have an 8 day weekend this week though so I am planning on working at least 2 or 3 games off my list. I could go faster but I still want to try and get all of the achievements when I can.

    !Update !Beaten+1 !FallOffTheWagon+0 72/146/3

    Luigi's Mansion (GameCube) was great fun. Here's some long-winded extrapolation on my experience:
    The devs made sure to communicate early on that this was not a "Mario game," as exemplified in Luigi's cowardly demeanor. Even the animation for when he takes damage add character depth. The ghost catching is great and intuitive, the minimap is useful, but still should have let me zoom on a floor that I'm not currently at. The hidden secrets are a delight to uncover. However, this game does suffer slightly: If I forget to collect a key from a room after I clear it, the game has no way of reminding me to go back and find it. Also, there is an obnoxious bit of backtrackery towards the end. Not the fun kind, like Super Metroid, where you unlock a new ability which gives you the feeling that you are becoming more powerful as you gain access to new areas, but literally going to a room, beating some ghosts/ghost boss, and getting a new key, which you must then take to the complete opposite end of the mansion. Yes, it tells me exactly which door to go to, but it still feels dumb and tedious.

    (Actual story spoilers in here)
    Catching the boos is also frustrating, but I think it was designed that way, as catching all of the boos isn't required, just really tough. Fail to catch a boo fast enough (there are 50) and it will phase through the wall into an adjacent room (thankfully, they never escape through the ceiling or floor). However, because the designers planned well, you can navigate to that room (sometimes you have to take the long way 'round, because Luigi can't move through walls sans door) and you can get back to the same boo, minus the health you took from it earlier. I remember having to chase the same boo back and forth through the same 4 rooms for about 3 minutes. Again, this was designed to be difficult and frustrating, but for extra stuff that you don't need to complete the game's story, I encourage and appreciate stuff like this.

    The music is super great. The main melody they cooked up gets tweaked and modified depending on what room you are in, plus engaging boss music. Interesting and puzzle-oriented boss encounters, and only one of them was poorly designed
    Boolossus fight feels completely luck-based after you get him down to 4 or less boos.
    As many others have also indicated, this game is short. I beat it in one 7-8 hour sitting. However, I am glad to say that making this game longer would not have helped it, unless they had thrown out the key idea in favor of some other exploratory progression mechanic. Replay value for top-score purposes, and for getting secrets you missed. There are some extremely well-hidden secrets in here. I should have remembered to water my plant...

    XCOM is almost entirely beaten. All I have left is Impossible difficulty, beating the game once from each starting continent (which should happen in just one more playthrough) and the multiplayer infection-style achievement.

    Time to spend more time in the old west. Red Dead Redemption!

    Maybe doing this will convince me to actually finish the games I get. I usually only get halfway through before some other game pulls me away. Though I probably will be falling off the wagon a lot, I just want to finish the games I pick up. Excluding games from the list that, I have already beaten, are not played to be beaten, are early access or betas, or won't run on my laptop.

    @Orivon Man that PSP list has some of my favorite games of all time on there. Vagrant Story, Star Ocean 2, and Final Fantasy Tactics are in my top 10 games ever. If you have never played them you are in for some quality gaming.

    I am borrowing South Park Stick of Truth from a friend and finishing it off before I move back to Bravely Default on my 3DS. My wife asked me twice if I was watching an episode of the show which is pretty good praise I think.

    I hadn't played Vagrant Story and Tactics before I got them on the PSP. Played both of them a bit when I got them before getting distracted by something else. I did play Second Story on my PS1, went as far as the second disc but I don't remember how exactly far into it I got. The game was stolen before I could finish it. Currently working my way through the first game before I play the second one.

    Red Dead Redemption is completed, but not without thoroughly exploring every single thingie possible. There's still 0.5% left before I can claim 100% completion, and my records seem to indicate that it is nestled away in the minigames somewhere. I don't care enough to hunt it down. Really satisfying game, but pushes the envelope with regards to human depravity and irresponsibility.

    In depth discussion, and spoilers. Really, if you haven't played this yet, please don't look:
    The ending kicked me right in the nuts. John Marston gets used, exploited, used, exploited, lied to, betrayed, tricked, conned, and otherwise delayed due to the interests of other people throughout the whole game, and after all that work, all that commitment to resolve an awful situation, he just gets betrayed by the feds and gunned down in his own barn. It cut me deep. The epilogue segment was really genius though, as it was classic western justice, AND allowed extended sandbox play as Marston Jr. Very clever implementation by the devs. I should recap, and illustrate that this game is graphically everything. Graphically violent, sexual, sexist, cruel, inhuman, and racist/culturist. 400+ horses were murdered during my playthrough of this game (yes, there's a tracker for that).
    Horse driving controls felt very odd at first, but now feel fluid and intuitive. I feel like this game also has its own unique genre: the Skinner Sand Box. Because you are in a sandbox-style world, skinning animals ad nauseum, which serves as one of many skinner box elements.
    I liked that the weapon progression matched the story progression, though I still would have liked a stealth-kill option with the melee knife. Devs went out of their way to illustrate the "exit wound effect" on NPCs (graphically violent, and nearly accurate). Would have liked a few more jumping/climbing segments, but that was possibly toned down to emphasize how much fun you could be having firing guns from your horse.
    All in all, it's a compelling story (occasionally fun, but usually not). Really solid gameplay and believable characters. It also conveys the sensation that you are playing through a western film, which is pretty rad. Largely unexplored genre helps this title stand out immensely.

    Now I will play Torchlight 2 until I see credits :)

    Beat Torchlight 2. Very satisfying little grind. I would highly recommend for anybody on a budget who wants to get nearly endless mileage for $20.

    Been feeling a KotOR itch, and decided I should finally pay for a copy and give it another playthrough.

    !Update !Beaten +3 !FallOffTheWagon+1

    Finished off Gunman Clive, 3d Classics Kirby's Adventure, and Epic Battle Fantasy 4. I feel like I would have liked Gunman Clive more if I was better at it. As it stands, I have no desire to go back and play through the game again, which is a shame since I like the art style and music. Kirby's Adventure I didn't really care about. It's nice that it was free from club Nintendo and it's nice to learn that I don't really care about Kirby games. Epic Battle Fantasy 4 is a game I know that I'm going to go back and play again, most likely on a harder difficulty setting. The story is okay, nothing to write home about; the humor is hit-or-miss, sadly mainly miss for me; but the combat is what hooked me. I was weak and picked up Inazuma Eleven while it was still on sale. Played it for a few hours and enjoyed it, but I don't think I'll be playing it much right now. Currently playing First Departure and I've hit the point in it where I would usually start playing another game. The goal I have is to actually finish games so I'm not going to switch to something else right now. Besides, I want to finish it and move on to the second game. I also need to figure out what game on PC I want to play next. Leaning towards Ys but I don't know if I want to play another RPG right now.

    !UpdateStatus, 19/179

    I finally finished off Persona 3 Portable this morning. Now that was an RPG. I didn't check my final time, but I'm pretty sure that I clocked in around 80-90 hours on that one. I haven't gathered my thoughts on it, but that's a game that people should play, but its one hell of an investment. The combat changes in Portable do make things pretty easy though. Most of the harder fights were more endurance tests than anything else. Missing the animated cutscenes was a bummer, too, but youtube helps with that. I'd still probably recommend this version if only because the game is crazy long and that's usually easier to handle with a handheld.

    I also bought too much crap to list since my last update. Most of which are RPG's of comparable length, so this backlog is screwed forever.

    I borrowed South Park: Stick of Truth from a friend and got all of the achievements. It is a really short game, one playthrough took me 12 hours and the next to 5. But it feels like watching an interactive episode so I enjoyed it. Next up I am going back to finish up the last 4 achievements I am missing in BioShock. I also bought Bravely Default and Portal 2 along with the free Xbox Games with Gold. Not enough hours in the day really.

    !Update !Beaten+1 !FallOffTheWagon+1 75/147/3

    Knights of the Old Republic defeated, Dark Side ending (got Light Side about 8 years ago). Darth Malak is a chump when I have 38 armor ^-^
    I didn't even know I could
    use Death Field -- Dark Side power, upgraded form of Drain life -- to kill the suspended/comatose Jedi as a countermeasure! What an entertaining discovery.

    More ramblings about KotOR 1, if you like (not spoilers):
    This game is remarkably good in its old age, though I suffered many a BSOD while ALT-TAB'ing. Your mileage may vary. Definitely force your display to 4:3 unless you like fat people mode. BIOWARE went out of their way to give the player extraordinary depth of control regarding Light/Dark side decisions, and this is apparent all the way through the story. You get multiple opportunities to switch back and forth to light/dark side affinity (some legitimately story-based, some amusingly exploitative because of how the game was coded). Highly recommended. If you liked Dragon Age: Origins, and are curious to play a game 5 years older in space, you might enjoy Knights of the Old Republic.

    ***EDIT***
    One final note: This game is an absolute snore-fest on Easy and Normal in terms of difficulty after you complete the first few experience levels. If you want it to stay difficult all the way through, set it to Hard. If you want to cruise through and enjoy the story elements exclusively, non-hard is perfect.

    I was combing through YouTube vids of The Old Republic, which apparently features unexpected encounters with characters from KotOR 1 and 2. That's really great, and makes me want to do KotOR 2 at the very least. I had attempted starting a character in The Old Republic -- after it had gone free-to-play -- but it didn't hook me during the intro quests. Did I not wait long enough? More importantly, can I play it by myself and finish it?

    Anyways, it's time to engage in some moral depravity. The Walking Dead: Season 2 is next. Will I survive?

    EDIT 2: Devil May Cry HD down! Hot damn was that fun. I played a lot of it forever ago, but it was way too hard for me when I was that young. Getting back on that horse was so so worth it. As an open question to anyone with an opinion here, is DMC2 worth the playthrough? I'm tempted to skip straight to 3.

    Had this whole thing written out then saw the post date. Short answer yes its worth playing though if you enjoyed the first one.

    I am stuck on what I thought was the end of darksiders II but after a quick look online the game just keeps going on and on and on. 20+ hours for sure to bag this one.

    Walking Dead Season 2 put on hold until Episode 5 comes out. This game -- interactive story really -- is great, and like its predecessor, absolutely shameless about stomping on your feels.

    Decided to play Mark of the Ninja today, and ended up beating it. Steam mileage indicates that I did it in 10 hours. Can we have more stealth games that actually correctly implement the concept of stealth? This game does a terrific job with the concept. Really cool premise, decent enough storytelling. Lots of faithful similarities to N and N+ when it comes to obstacle course layouts. Precarious platforms that crumble after you stand on them, kinda like Prince of Persia Sands of Time. Assassination kills are just a taste of intuitive quicktime event, nothing absurd. Just like Metal Gear Solid before it, stealth is everything - getting spotted is usually your doom.

    Absolutely stunning visuals, both for gameplay and animated cutscenes. The art strongly resembles Gabe's, which I have a bit of an affinity for :)

    Next up, maybe I'll slog through Skyward Sword?

    Around half of these are PS+ freebies. Not sure If I want to play DS3. I doubt it will be any fun alone...

    Biochock: Minevera's Den
    Biochock Infinite: Burial at Sea 2
    Metro Last Light
    Sniper Elite V2
    Minerva's Den was excellent. Bioshock 2 is my favorite of all three, and this was a an excellent cherry on top of it.
    The Metro series was one of my favorites of last generation. Last Light took everything that was good from the last game and made it fun to play with improved stealth and shooting mechanics.
    Sniper Elite was a fun, if flawed game. It also tackled WWII a lot more maturely than I expected from a game know for shooting Nazi's in the balls.

    Currently Working through Crysis 2, The Saboteur, and Dishonored. Might start up Dragon Age, as it would be nice to play the new one when it comes out.

    The overall list. I took off any game that I do not have to do a second play through of. Also I'm probably forgetting something...

    And now for a little discussion on my methods and reasons. Spoiler tag to save anyone not interested from the rambling.

    I think what finally encouraged me to join the catalogue was two game series that have always felt like personal failures for not being finished, and so I'm tearing down those monoliths first.

    1) Mass Effect 2 + 3. This series and me have a history. I played 1 through on the 360, full completion, no stone unturned. I loved it. Number 2 though...

    Ok, so I imported my save and that was great. I finished about 2 loyalty missions and then just...stopped. I got tired of knowing in the back of my mind, from various vague spoilers, that the suicide mission at the end would be less or more fatal to your team depending on how much side stuff you did. When I play RPGs I'm generally a completionist. But I hate being told to be one. I hate feeling like there are reprecussions if I get tired of playing that effing boring mining mini-game - I actually liked hte Mako-style mining! I loved just driving around in that bouncey little thing and occasionally getting out to pick up minerals. But then they replaced that with a scrolling min-game which you needed to do for upgrades which (apparently?) had repercussions on your final missions. Eff that noise.

    Crazily enough, I bought ME3 exclusively for the multiplayer with my friends. Never even touched the SP. But eventually enough was enough and I came back to ME2...but my old 360 had broken...and my new one wasn't compatible with the old hard drive...and the hassle of getting a transfer cable from friends just killed all desire to return to Mining or Else 2. And the idea of starting from ME1 (because no way am I using a pre-set) just wasn't appealing.

    But fuck it, imma suck it up and do this.

    2) Freespace. This is my white whale. It was probably the first game that ever entered my backlog, but not for lack of trying. I loved this game and would have played it till the end if some weird bug hadn't stopped that. Probably about 2/3 into the game I hit a game-stopping bug: in one particular mission no matter whether I completed the mission or not I always "failed" once I jumped out. I tried everything (in-game) for days. I was a 10-year-old kid with the time and enthusiasm to try anything - but crucially, neither the PC know-how nor the internet connection that could have helped me fix the bug properly. I even went so far as to simply sit there at the end of the mission for hours on end just hoping for a miracle. In the end, I finally gave up and since then I've had various install issues with the ole CD that kept me from really forcing the issue.

    But now I've finally gotten off my ass and bought it from GoG. It's downloading now. I still have the fold-out list of keyboard controls that came with my copy of the game. I am going to finish this game for the sake of my inner 10-year-old. The download has only 16 minutes to go. I am so excited right now.

    (Oh God, please make this game just as good as I remember it.)

    Update: Well, it took me 5 tries to pass the training mission. Rusty doesn't even begin to cover it.

    !UpdateStatus, 22/184

    I went on a pretty big SMT binge after I had the urge to finish off Persona 3 a little while ago. So what that means, is that two more of the titans of my backlog have been felled.

    I played through Persona 4 Golden and SMT IV back to back, and just finished SMT IV a few moments ago. I didn't get the ending that I wanted in that one, but I haven't decided if I'll go back to NG+ that one. I'm going to shelf it for now.

    Both games were absolutely fantastic. This franchise is scratching all sorts of itches. I just wish I found it earlier.

    Beat Sleeping Dogs and Star Ocean: First Departure. Added Remember Me and The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky. Star Ocean I liked quite a bit, though it felt a bit short for an RPG. The characters I recruited were Cyuss, T'Nique, Phia, and Pericci; I'll save the other five for a second run. Currently playing P3P, Tales of the Abyss, and Borderlands 2. I've reached January in P3P so I should finish it up in the next few days. In Borderlands I've reached Fyrestone. I stopped playing shortly before this point earlier, but Gaige is so much fun to play as (ANARCHY!) that I see myself finishing it.

    Made a couple of new dents in the list. I picked up and finished Dragon Quest I on iOS and loved the crap out of it. Short and simple, but its a really solid port. I can't wait for II/III.

    This encouraged me to finally go back and play the last couple of dungeons of Dragon Quest IX, which I finished up this morning. Long and very not simple, but a solid game. Still, probably the least favorite of the series out of the ones I've played. There's an unbelievable amount of post-game that I'm probably going to put way back on the backburner until I play some more of these games. Its nice to know that it'll be there for when I'm dying for new content.

    Next up, I finally cracked open and played through The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. This joins DQIX in my list of "really great game, but my least favorite of the franchise." It was definitely a Zelda adventure, and that overworld theme is already in my all time top-five Zelda tunes, but there's some frustrating and uninspired chunks of the game that left a pretty bland taste in my mouth.

    Spirit Tracks was the last Zelda game on checklist for the franchise outside of the hypothetical future remake of Majora's Mask, and I was bummed out that I didn't have any new ones waiting for me. Luckily, the lords of PSN overheard my strife, and put Okami HD, the biggest Zelda adventure there is, on a fantastic sale.

    !Update !Beaten +3 !FallOffTheWagon+2 [color=?]FixedAMistake-1[/color]

    Beat Borderlands 2. I had played a bit of it as Axton before, but I found myself getting tired of the game before I could finish it. Since I picked up the game much later I had the collector's edition and most of the DLC, so I decided to start a new game as Gaige. Some of the most fun I have ever had in a game. Anarchy is so powerful that I could just vaguely aim in an enemy's direction and they died. It also made the last boss a joke, I don't think I saw him attack once. Finished off P3P as well. I had played through the game before as the male MC, just finished the game as the female MC. Since I had beaten it before I was able to do new game plus and not have to worry about the combat. Her social links really are a lot better, moon S.link is the best. Beat Battleblock Theater as well. I enjoyed it, though the last few levels were testing my patience quite a bit. Picked up Ring Runner: Flight of the Sgaes. Picked up Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness as well. After playing it a bit, I think I broke my backlog's back. I've been playing Titan Quest and it has been scratching an ARPG itch that I had forgotten I had. I wasted 12 hours playing the base game before being told that the expansion has the base game in it. Luckily my character transferred over to the expansion so I could quickly blow through what I had already played. With that said since I had listed Titan Quest and its expansion Immortal Throne as two separate games I'm taking Titan Quest off the list. Nothing else besides Titan Quest has really been grabbing me lately, so I have no idea what game I want to play next.
