[Backlog is the ongoing quest to rid Conrad Zimmerman's collection of unfinished games. As voted on by the Destructoid community, Conrad plays each game from start to finish live on Destructoid's Twitch.tv channel every weeknight at 8pm Pacific]

It's time once more for you, the Destructoid audience, to determine how I spend what passes for my leisure time. We'll soon be ready to start our twenty-sixth game on Backlog and the theme this go around is as straightforward as they come. All of the games in our new crop are based on comic book properties.

Take a gander at the list and pick the game you'd like to see me play through next!

X-men Origins
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Developed by Raven Software
Released May 1, 2009

Who doesn't love Wolverine? He might have been a little over-used from time to time, but that's just because there's nothing you can't apply a gruff and insensitive guy with knives in his hands to. Of the games to feature the cunning Canuck in a leading role, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is regarded by many as the very best.


The Red Star
Developed by Acclaim Studios / Archangel Studios
Released April 23, 2007

Based on the graphic novel series of same name, The Red Star is a game which went through a difficult development as Acclaim Studios shut down shortly after a demo of the game appeared in August of 2004. The final product, a combination of third-person shooting and fighting game mechanics, wouldn't see release until three years later, it's development completed by Archangel Studios. Probably too late, and the completed Xbox version was never even put on store shelves.

The game sounds awesome and I've always wanted to try it. The copy I picked up on the cheap has been sitting around for an awful long time.

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows
Spider-Man: Web of Shadows
Developed by Treyarch
Released on October 21, 2008

 I really like Spider-Man games, even most of the bad ones. The curse of the sandbox is magnified by all the ability orbs crammed throughout New York and I can't seem to stay on track more than a couple of minutes every time I fire up this game. But swinging through the city is always fantastic fun and I love the way the two costumes work together, so this would be a delightful choice.


Hellboy: The Science of Evil
Developed by Krome Studios
Released June 24, 2008

I dig Hellboy. I can't resist a good alternate history, particularly if it involves nazi occultists and steampunk science. I should probably learn to do something about that because I'm led to understand that this Hellboy game is mediocre at best. I snagged it for less than a tenner, so I'm not crying any tears but I can't say that I've felt a whole lot of motivation to even drop it in at all.

Mystery Game
Mystery Game

Finally, we have the Mystery Game. Don't make the mistake of choosing this for curiosity's sake, as people have clamored before to know what it was and groaned when they learned. The intent here is to select the Mystery Game if none of the other games appeal to you, so voting for it just because you want to know what it is is kind of a dick move

If the Mystery Game is not chosen, it'll roll over into the next series where it will continue to be a mystery.

There you have it. Make your selection in the poll below and make your case in the comments for the game you want to see next on Backlog!
