I'll die happy after: I watch the GoT series finale remake, beat my backlog and find the perfect red lipstick. Gia_P11’s profile

Total Backlog Count: -72-

I had written a great post with all the latest victims of my winter cleaning, but my laptop decided to act up, so let’s just say that removing games from my backlog that shouldn’t even have made it in my library is going well.

I hope everyone is doing great, xoxo

I guess I’m more of the “remove from my backlog games that maaaaybe I shouldn’t have bought anyway” than the “reduce the amount of awesome games I’ve left unplayed” kind of assassin, but still I reduce my backlog, so…………. I’d say it counts. :-)

I installed- didn’t like- uninstalled Assassin’s Creed: China, I gave Gray Matter a decent chance and I guess I beat The Stanley Parable. I used to love games like Button Tales and Catch a falling star, but I guess not anymore.

I removed Anno 1602 because honestly I shouldn’t have included it in the first place. More cleanup to follow.

I removed a bunch of games, which I basically installled- didn’t like- uninstalled.

Adventures of Robinson Crusoe
Gardens Inc. 2: The Road to Fame
The Fool
Luxor HD
Luxor Mahjong
7 Wonders of the Ancient World
Cobi Treasure Deluxe

Little Farm - Broken, wouldn’t even load.

Overcast - Walden and the Werewolf/ Jack’s Gang - I din’t even try these, it’s not my style, not even sure how they ended up in my library… Probably a surprise key or a bundle. Oh well.

Solitaire Beach Season - I had progressed pretty far in this game, but it’s repetitive (yes, I know, it’s solitaire) and I don’t see the point in reaching the finish line. I can play any other. Pretty game to look at and nice music, I have to say.

Faerie Solitaire Remastered I moved it to beaten, as I’ve already played the other version.

I think I have another batch (or two) like this, and the rest in my backlog are games that will take me to 2022. :-)

Happy New Year to the world! Happy playing to our own little subset of the world!

I tried playing For Honor, but my laptop can’t take the burden, so off the list it goes.

I’ve started Shadow of Mordor, it’s really nice, but it’s advertised as an Assassin’s Creed alternative, which it isn’t. It just doesn’t have the same edge as my beloved trilogy. Still, I’m going to try to beat it, at least.

I broke my rule of not buying a game before shrinking my backlog, but True Fear 2 came out (after a very interesting tale of delays) and I HAD to buy it-and play it. In a weekend. :-)

I also removed Medal of Honor: Allied Assault from my list, because I had actually beaten it in the past, I just bought it again because I love that game. I left the other two of the bundle in the to-do list, though.

I don’t really have a plan for now, whatever catches my eye on my list gets a try.

I hope everyone has been having great fun assassinating their backlogs while I was away. :-)
Things happened, but autumn weather is such a great incentive to get back to gaming.

I replayed ACR (first time I had rushed to finish the story, now I enjoyed it more, just skipped all the Desmond parts). I enjoyed this trilogy so much, although I don’t think I’ll revisit it for a third time, maybe years later. I abandoned Black Flag (naval battles are so not for me, hated that part of the game and really couldn’t endure it just for the rest of it) and the Witcher (too much work, I’m getting older and lazier) and I’m ready to start cleaning up my backlog again.

I had tried Alan Wake and didn’t really like it, so I’ll just remove it. I think I’m going to finish Life goes on, Hitman GO and start The Saboteur. We’ll see how it goes. :-)

EDIT: I also removed World in Conflict, I’m not interested in playing something like this now. Maybe when I’m older :-P

Since I got a job at the beginning of the year, I haven’t played much, I just get home and drop dead asleep, and spend weekends sleeping some more.

I mostly started a couple of games just to see that they are not for me and remove them from my backlog:

  • Watch Dogs (BOOOORING, oh my so incredibly boring, I couldn’t last 15 minutes into it)
  • The Search for Amelia Earhart (GLITCHY, with a visible square around my cursor at all times)
  • Aloha Paradise Hotel (refused to launch after three different installation attempts). NOTE: I wouldn’t count it, but, although I have removed it from my Steam Library, it still shows up in my BLAEO page, so I had to mark it as “won’t play”.

So, these are out.

Somewhere in there I tried AC: LIberation and uninstalled after 20 minutes, I think. Is it just me or was it really that horrible? I really can’t get into Black Flag, I’ll try again in a couple months or accept defeat and move it to “won’t play” category. I have to admit I replayed ACB because I needed some comfort in my gaming, and I’m tempted to replay ACR, because I really rushed through it the first time.

And I started Rise of the Tomb Raider, which a very kind internet stranger gifted to me, but sadly it stopped working after the first few levels (after the bear and before the base, or thereabouts). I know my laptop is not the best, but I managed to play quite some time before the game inexplicably decided to just stop running. I reinstalled, prayed, swore, to no avail. I’ll try again some time in the future, but I’m really disappointed that I couldn’t finish it. I really, really, really wanted to play this game, there is NO WAY it stays unplayed in my library. Je refuse.

BTW, I marked Chicken Invaders as beaten, because I had beaten it ages ago on PC and I just bought it out of nostalgia. I like it and might play it again, but no need to mess up my stats, right? :-) I also count Poker Night at the Inventory as beaten, although I didn’t really finish it, I got most out of it, 75% achievements and don’t intent to replay it. Same goes for Hexus, I played most of it, so it’s not a “won’t play” and it doesn’t really have a story arc to finish, so I just don’t feel like playing the same thing for a few more levels.

But now Spring is here, I’m starting to get a hold of my new job and not feel dead tired all weekend, so it’s time to try tackling my backlog again!!!

I won’t continue my previous list, or even attempt to set monthly goals, I’m starting from scratch, but a vague “tackle the backlog” plan looks like this:

  • Try one last time to get into Black Flag. Either finish it or abandon it.
  • Try to finish TR The Last Revelation. If I find out I’m too old for those controls, I’ll let go.
  • Try to beat Solitaire Beach Season or at least reach a point that feels I got enough out of the game.
  • Give Runaway: A Road Adventure a decent chance, I haven’t played a point’n’click in long enough time.
  • Get at least one of HITMAN, HITMAN GO, Life Goes On, Dishonored, The Witcher out of the list. It will really depend on my mood, so we’ll see. Honestly, The Witcher looks like too much work, but I don’t want to give up on it yet.

Out of the remaining games, I have a strong suspicion a number of them will be summarily and unceremoniously moved to the “WON’T PLAY” pile. Thank god my “hoard everything available” phase didn’t last long.

I missed this. :-)

Happy New Year everyone!

Since my last post, I got and played Assassin’s Creed III. I’ll concur it is important to play it for the saga, but I was mostly bored…

I guess I’m ready to play AC IV now, the gameplay was a bit odd jumping right after AC Revelations. :-)

Meridian: Age of Invention and Ticket to ride are out. The first is the kind of time-management that bores me to death, click-the-fastest type of thing (is there never going to be another Royal Envoy?… :-( ), and the second one was just plain boring…

Things happened and I didn’t play much this last month, so no much progress here…

Out of November’s list, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault is still standing, but I need to have lots of time to enjoy it, so it’s on hold for now.

I didn’t play Hitman GO for Nonverbal November either. :-(

I did finish Lost Horizon and I had a great time, I kinda loved it :-). Is it perfect? Not at all. Will you have a blast? Definitely.

Assassin’s Creed IV and The Witcher are still ongoing, I plan to finish them real soon.

So, let’s say this is December/ January list and see how it goes :-):
The Witcher I feel it’s strangely appropriate for December.
Meridian: Age of Invention I hope it’s not all grind, no fun.
Runaway: A road adventure It seems fun, although not my kind of game.
Solitaire Beach Season I dream of summer.
Ticket to ride I started playing it and didn’t win me over, I’ll give one more try and remove it from backlog if I still don’t like it.

P.S. My game count went up because of game giveaways etc, I’m still not buying any more games until I have less than 50 games in my backlog.

It seems I’m cleaning up my backlog more than actually playing games, but at least I don’t have a “what if” for many games now, so this must count for something!

So, my intentions for November…

Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
Midnight Mysteries: Witches of Abraham - Collector’s Edition
Gardens Inc. – From Rakes to Riches
Medal of Honor: Allied Assault
7 Wonders: Ancient Alien Makeover

…And what is actually happening

Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered Done.
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Abandoned. I would have liked to play it but So.Many.Bugs.
Midnight Mysteries: Witches of Abraham - Collector’s Edition Done. A chore.
Gardens Inc. – From Rakes to Riches Abandoned.
Medal of Honor: Allied Assault Delayed.
7 Wonders: Ancient Alien Makeover Done.
Assassin’s Creed IV I won this and I just started it, see how it goes.
Hitman GO I’m going to play this for Nonverbal November.
The Witcher I started playing it, want to see what this craze is all about.
Lost Horizon This was kindly gifted to me, and I plan to play it next week.
