Anti-Backlogging Strategy 2.0 Daerphen’s profile

It’s about time to get rid of all my backlogged games… Ok I will be serious, I will try to get rid of some of them. So here is how I will try to manage that.

Report #359: Gothic Playable Teaser


And here we go, just another replay of an almost forgotten game. A few months ago the developers finally removed 4 broken achievements. Time to get the remaining working achievements. You can read my initial Report #249. Back then I was very hyped about the game. Replaying did not extend the hype. Still interested in a full version of the game, but it does not really matter how fast it will arrive. The teaser is okay. A tons of glitches but yeah its still a demo, so no hard feelings.

Report #358: Collisions


Finally put an end to this game. Started playing it a long time ago. They added a couple of free content updates which also included achievements. Replayed a couple of the levels and also played the pinball game. A bit weird seeing this mini game in the base game, because I hate when games add completely different genres as standalone extra games. Anyway, after a while I got the hang of it and finished 5 pinball games in a row.

Report #357: Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts


Finally after a very long time another report. Was busy with getting started in our new place and getting a son :D That is also the reason for the maybe unexpected high playtime on this. Game was running quite often for the whole day without me at the desk.

Very cool game. The challenges, where you get tokens to upgrade your character makes the game even more interesting. Because you have to finish the missions in different ways. For example extra sneaky or using some cool gadgets.

  • Candle

    14 hours playtime

    23 of 23 achievements

Report #356: Candle


Has been a very long time since the last report. Was busy buying a house and moving into it. Finally most work is done to have some free time in the evening.

Started this shortly before that and finished it now. Most achievements I got on the way, still had to replay from some save files I made. Very nice adventure game. You need to find the right items and do some mini games on the way.

  • Rescue Party: Live!

    10 hours playtime

    18 of 18 achievements

Report #355: Rescue Party: Live!


A friend suggest us to play this, so recently in a sale we picked it up and tried it. Was really nice. The game play is very comparable to Overcooked, but you have to rescue people and animals. For example you have to bring medicine, build bandages, make medicine, exinguish fire, use gas masks, etc.

There are only a couple of bugs noticed in the beginning, mainly how to connect to each other to play the game. After finishing the game we had a bit of trouble of doing some remaining achievements. For some you need to be the host, some require local coop instead of shared via internet.

Go check it out if you like playing games like Overcooked, but make sure you play it with 3 friends, playing it in duo or alone is very boring with this.

Report #354: Omno


Had this recommended by a friend during the christmas sale. Its actually nice. A bit like “Journey” which I played a while ago. A couple of levels where you have to solve puzzles. Basically you need to reach some items using the environment and your skills.
Dashing forward and then holding firmly to the edge is sometimes frustrating. Somehow it was sometimes random, if I can manage or not.

Really cool game for in between.

Actually I don’t think it will be realistic to finish 20 games, but will still continue ;)

Report #353: Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy


This game I had to purchase in the last christmas sale. Friends already played this on PS5 and were amazed by it. Also like the movies and so I jumped in recently.
Very cool and funny story. Of course the sound track is on point :-)

Played it once for the story, in my opinion I got a fair amount of collectibles, but was not enough to reach 65% in each category. So I replayed the game with a guide, took mit until chapter 14/16. So I still think I even missed collectibles using a guide. Maybe there were some added later.
Anyway the game makes sense to be played twice, because there are a couple of decisions, that play out some encounter a bit differently. The story is not really different, but some events differ.
