Happy New Year, visitors!

In an effort to set small yet achievable monthly goals in order to help motivate me, I’ve decided that at the start of each month I’m going to share those goals and update them as I a) knock them out, or b) hit the end of the month. Besides, maybe this will help me clear up my backlogs instead of spending way too much time looting every damn container in Fallout 4. (more…)

My Summer 2013 Project Backlog Plan of Attack

The Curious Case of the Never-Ending Backlog

Nine out of ten gamers have one. We don’t mean for it to happen, but new and shinier things always seem to come our way, leading to last week’s new release finding its way to the stack of games we promise ourselves we will get back to just as soon as the summer lull comes around.

For some of us, it’s not so bad. Less than a baker’s dozen of past releases remain sealed or still have that fresh from the factory smell. And we will get to those, just as soon as we finish up a season of whatever EA Sports title or in-depth RPG is causing the hold up. For others (primarily those working in the industry, whether it be as developer or journalist), that stack of games is more likely triple what a normal gamer has waiting.  It’s not that you don’t want to play them, because you most definitely do, but in between playing or making games for work, plowing through weekly review copies and picking up the ones you aren’t comped, it doesn’t take long to watch your backlog develop into a monster.
