I am still alive :D

Hello Backloggers! Here is my potato!

Life Progression

This year was so hectic on so many levels. Had a massive project that ended with an Airshow in September, I have had 2 surgeries to try fix the same problem, hoping this second one sticks now and I went on holiday for like 3 weeks to Germany and surrounding to see friends and family. So will all of that I haven’t been playing too much having said that I am going through a gaming type renaissance at the moment [Again, exactly like last year XD] and really getting into it again :D

Game Progression

Enough of the boring life stuff, here are the games!

So I gave up on The Witcher 1. Halfway through act three I got so over it and just went to The Witcher 2. The backlog increased with the following items over the year:

It seems the backlog grew quite a lot this year XD but it also shrunk quite alot. I have had this account for almost 11 years, and as a dumb kid trying to horde every game under the sun I had alot of games that I would never play. So I removed a number of these games to have a more curated steam account. It was a weird feeling deleting them but felt good to clear the clutter :D Minimalism extends to digital irrespective of what the Minimalists might tell you The one bummer with deleting these games is apparently the achievement status still counts to your completion rate but oh well ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I finished Far Cry which is the first game since Far Cry 3 and it was awesome. I really enjoyed it. Sad that there are not achievements because I would have been find to grind that game for all of them :) I have been trying to keep up with all the Oxygen Not Included updates but that seems like a fools errand XD. I completed the second Orwell game which as a bit less interesting than the first one and to get all the achievements this time as a bit grindy. Shadow of War was the most high profile game I have ever won on Steamgifts and it is also one of the coolest games I have ever played. Really REALLY enjoying it :D I bought the expansion pass on Gamersgate for $14 so I have access to all the achievements. I can’t remember when I completed Assassins Creed 3 The servers in South Africa still suck for Team Fortress 2


So thats that. I will try to be more active. I do keep the game list updated and creep the site quite often, just never sit down to write a post.
Thanks for not kicking me out XD

Can someone direct me to that api that runs on your steamgifts profile and tell you your won games completion rate? It was a screening tool for a group a while back but I can find it again :/ Thanks.

EDIT: I found it here –> Tracking Tool

Until next time
