Hey guys! My name is Danielle, but please call me Mizzie. I just recently got out of school and have a lot of goals to achieve, one being my backlog! I try to 100% games and sometimes that’s not possible, but I do my best regardless. I’m also a bit of a slow player as I like to take my time with things and am also a perfectionist.
I prefer MMOs, RPGs, VNs, strategy, point&click, HOG, management, simulation, and puzzles, though I will play any genre as I know each game can be different and something may catch my interest when I least expect it. So, my library is filled with a large variety and I do plan on playing them all! I also have much smaller backlogs on other platforms and will try to tackle those as well. Its a shame that they can’t be synced and organized like Steam can though, as it would be great to keep track of them as well!
Been a bit since I last posted, but I’m going to try and do monthly updates now (and thank you to everyone who answered my questions last post about formatting). I think posting at the beginning of each month is the best option for me, gives me a specific schedule to stick with and also time for my slow butt to get something done, lol.
Also, does anyone know why Akantha’s templates say “CHANGEME”, and they say to change it, yet when I do it breaks the code? Not sure what I’m doing wrong. I think I figured it out now though after more poking, but I’d still like an explanation as to why its necessary and all that.
Guardians of Ember
Unfortunately this game was removed from Steam due to the company being shady, so I can't show achievements or hours. Good news is that it being removed won't affect my stats, and I put it in the "Abandoned" pile anyways. The overall gameplay and storyline was not very interesting, it didn't capture my attention and nothing compelled me to continue. I had hoped it would be good as it sounded interesting from the store's descriptions, especially the crafting and housing bits, but it really wasn't, which is disappointing. One less thing to worry about though, and at least I can say I tried it. I saved one picture because I really liked the dress armor.

I'm going to try playing some of my SteamGifts wins next. I'm thinking of starting with these two. Regency Solitaire, as its more of a casual game I can do at anytime and play only for a few minutes if need be, and Maize because it looks very interesting. Not sure if I should try a challenge after or not, but I'll think on it.

How does everyone do the cool and interesting posts, where they insert clickable items (like page numbers, or a “Completed”, “Started” button categories), among the many other interesting things? Is there a guide on here or somewhere else on how to achieve that?
Woot, my first post! It’s not a Steam game though, unfortunately, but it is part of my backlog and something I’ve been wanting to do since I got my new computer.
I finally finished Dragon Age 2 after a month (started around December 30th, I believe), and wow, am I happy to finally be done with it! After hearing how bad it was for various reasons, I was worried I was going to dislike it or be unable to stand it, but I enjoyed it a lot and I’m glad I got to finish. While it still doesn’t hold a candle to Dragon Age Origins, it was an enjoyable experience. The only thing I couldn’t stand was the same locations being used over and over again. Ugh. And some situations of course, but that would be spoiler territory. ;) I also would have been done sooner with the game, but had a lot of interruptions the past week that kept me from completing it, including a day of being ill. :(
Anyways, with that done I have now started another game in my backlog, Dragon Age Inquisition! I got this game forever ago, about a year after it launched, and couldn’t play it because my laptop couldn’t handle it and would crash straight after character creation. I nearly cried when this happened because I had been looking forward to the game since it was announced, and it was the main reason I wanted a new computer so badly. Now it is like a dream come true, especially in ultra settings! I already started my playthrough as an elf mage, but I’m struggling on who to romance, Solas or Cullen. I’m aware of the spoilers already, but its still a hard choice!
I’m glad to finally be able to play DAI, but a bit disappointed I’ve been neglecting my Steam backlog. I hope to play and finish a few mini-games in-between my playthroughs though, so I’ll hopefully be posting about those soon.
Thank you for reading, and have a great day!
