Project Backlog – Summer 2013 Update #1

HNI_0014

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 launched and was neglected when I actually got my 3DS XL at Valentine’s Day because I was addicted to Paper Mario: Sticker Star. I was about 10 hours in when I caved in and bought Animal Crossing New Leaf. The majority of my gaming friends were talking about how awesome it was and I kind of sort of missed the building/collecting/visiting neighbours style of game that Sims Social & SimCity Social (may they R.I.P.) provided me. I wanted to be social without it being Facebook social, if you know what I mean. (more…)

Last week, ThinkGeek announced they had some Borderlands 2 Limited Edition Diamond Plate Loot Chest replicas licensed from Gearbox for sale on the site. Matt and I are pretty hardcore about Borderlands 2, the best coop fun we’ve ever had together, so spending $100 on this was a no-brainer. We sprung for 3 day shipping and it arrived yesterday afternoon, me petting the shipping box every time I walked past it as I had to wait for Matt to get home before it could be opened.

When you open up the ugly brown shipping box, you will see this grey Hyperion Mail Service box, sent from H. Jack (H is for Handsome) to the Vault Hunters. According to the content listing, he is sending us the heads of Helena Pierce and Roland, as well as whatever matter he scraped off the ground after what happened to Bloodwing. Thankfully, no heads are actually inside the box. (more…)

Looting Pandora

As a married gamer, there are times when you just want to have fun playing a cooperative adventure together. Sadly, it had been quite some time since Matt and I sat down and spent hours upon hours gaming together. Sure, there was that period back in January and February when we jumped on the Skylanders bandwagon, but as much fun as that experience was, it was not the massive gun toting, free for all killing spree type of game that really gets us going.  (more…)
