Assassinated by the Backlog xurc’s profile
My mental model for keeping track of my backlog is to handle SG wins and the rest of the library separately, so I divided my profile into two pipelines:
- Stay above 80% achievement completion rate
- Stay below 20% unplayed on BLAEO
- Stay below 20% unplayed for SG wins
|Goals||Beginning of year||End of year|
|Reach 50% average achievement completion rate||44%|
|Reach 18% beaten + completed on BLAEO||14%|
Monthly Report, November 2023
Welp, November’s over before I knew it and I barely played anything this month (again). I need to find some laid-back games to help me relax a bit in December.
Beaten (SG win)
Monthly Report, October 2023
None! :( I had an unpleasantly busy October. Here's to a better November, hopefully.
Monthly Report, September 2023
BeatenBehold, a whopping…*drum roll*…zero! I was aware I spent the vast majority of August playing SG wins, but only now do I realize just how little attention did I pay to my personal backlog. That's part of the fun of writing monthly BLAEO reports for me. :)
Hello there, fellow backlog assassins! I’m new here, so I figured I’d do a short backlog overview, an assassination plan, and my June report.
I’m currently sitting at 277 games, 60% never played, 25% finished. I’ve only seriously gotten into PC gaming since buying the steam deck, so it’s a relatively small library that’s been collecting dust.
While I don’t want gaming to be a burden where I’m always stressed about the backlog instead of playing whatever I want, I also would love to play those unplayed games somehow. And let’s be honest, without some conscious effort, I’ll never get to the vast majority of games that I keep telling myself I’ll play someday.
So my plan is simple and not very stressful.
- I made three BLAEO lists that make up the pipeline: unplayed and up next, unfinished and currently beating, already beaten and to be completed. In principle each lists shouldn’t exceed 10 games.
- Each month / year, write a monthly / yearly report on BLAEO
Been sitting in my WL for long because I couldn’t justify the price, and finally picked it up as part of HB’s Pixel Pride bundle. 100%’d it in 3 hours and loved the humor, pixel art, novel mechanics, and the characters.
I also played…
I tried it this Jan but couldn’t get into it. Tried it again in May and once I started the Bloody Baron quests in Velen, things got much more engaging and I couldn’t put it down. In fact, TW3 took up most of my gaming time in June. I’m aiming to beat it in July or August at the latest, but since I’m doing every side quest and contract available, it sure is gonna take a while.
Another one that I started long (this time, years) ago but never made much progress, but this time because I can’t handle the difficulty. I only managed to finally defeat The Soul Master during this June.
…and some noob questions!
I’ve been checking out BLAEO’s activities feed and many users’ reports feature bar graphs of their backlogs grouped by progress, steam links that have thumbnails/personal play time/personal achievement progress, expandable sections where they write longer review sections, etc. How can I use these features when writing BLAEO posts? Becuase as far as I can tell, it’s just a flavor of markdown and I’ve no idea how to achieve these bells and whistles.
I’ll post the question in the BLAEO recuitment thread on SG if I don’t get any answers here. Anyways, that’s it for my first post. Thank you for having me here :)
