Project Backlog – Summer 2013 Update #1

So, I had all these great plans for June and July. I was going to power through at least 2 games a month to whittle down my backlog. Sounds good, right? Productive, too. Well…. Animal Crossing happened. I had started Professor Layton & the Miracle Mask which had been sitting on my nightstand since it …

Project Backlog – The List

Here is the current list of games in my backlog as of May 28th, 2013. This list will be updated on a semi-regular basis to reflect new additions and recent completions (or removals based on the fact that I got stuck and gave up). Xbox 360 Alan Wake – The Signal & The Writer DLC (Completed!) …

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn

Status: Saved the world in 52 Hours 45 mins at Level 65 I picked up Golden Sun: Dark Dawn one night when I saw it on the shelf at Best Buy for $5. It doesn’t bother me to play a game in the middle of a series I’ve never touched before if I spot it on sale. And …

Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2

Status: Main Trauma Center 2 game completed, varying difficulties When I spot games that are under $10 I instinctively want to add them to my game library (much to the chagrin of my husband).

Persona 4

Status: Finished Persona 4 once on Normal (107h 40m) with the Good Ending, started New Game+ on Expert The Persona franchise is one of my absolute favourites.

Alan Wake’s The Signal and The Writer DLC

Status: Finished both The Signal & The Writer DLC Achievements: 41 of 67 Gamerscore: 740/1500 Months after finishing Alan Wake’s original content and downloading both DLC add-ons, I still hadn’t gotten around to actually playing the new episodes. I’d see the box for the game sitting on the top of my 360 shelving unit and think “Maybe this …

Elder Scrolls Oblivion

Status: Finished everything in Oblivion but the Mages’ Guild quests Achievements: 54 of 60 Gamerscore: 1150/1250 DLC Purchased: Every last bit of DLC, including that ridiculous Horse Armor (only because it was on the GOTY disc) Somehow I find it very fitting that the first game from Project Backlog that I am crossing off the list is actually the …
