My backlog-killing strategy

Keep up-to-date stats about all the games I own
Be extremely selective about which games I want to add to my library
For potential additions, set up alerts on my gg.deals wishlist and stick to them
After adding a game to the backlog, try to play it as soon as possible
Do not care about achievements on the first playthrough
Drop a game if playing has become a chore

June 2020

I hope everyone is still safe. Gaming seems a petty activity in the deadly health situation we’ve been in for months but it has helped me clear my head more than ever.
I’m happy with how I spent that gaming time in June, completing the second part of the Grisaia series, continuing my virtual visit of the Louvre on the 3DS and remembering to play Last Day of June on the last day of June :) My son got me Age of Wonders: Planetfall Premium Edition for my birthday (with my own money but hey, it’s still a very nice present) and it’s a great 4X game. I suck at those but I get a lot of fun out of them. I also suddenly had the idea of connecting a bluetooth transmitter to my 3DS to play without any cords getting in the way and I’m pretty happy with the result (pic here). There’s a little latency but it hasn’t been an issue so far. Finally, I was weak and added a few great games to the backlog such as Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Cat Quest II and Persona 4 Golden. See you next month!

May 2020

First, I hope everyone is safe and that the lockdown hasn’t affected you too much. I managed to beat quite a few games this month and most of them were very good. When the remake of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater was announced, I suddenly wanted to play that series again so ended up having fun in THPS3 on a GameCube emulator. I’ve also spent many hours on Xenoblade Chronicles but I’m nowhere near the end. Finally, since The Louvre is still shut (I live just outside of Paris and love this museum), I decided it was time to seriously “play” 3DS Guide: Louvre but didn’t realise it contains 30+ hours of audio comments.

Well, the backlog has grown again this year but I'm still very happy about 2019. I got to experience many great games, had fun building a nice collection of physical 3DS titles and got into emulation again. I guess the main reason I didn't beat as many games as last year is because I've spent a lot of time on The Elder Scrolls Online (430 hours and counting) and because I also played through many long games. Anyway, I wish you all the best for 2020!
