Last month was a good result in taking on my Backlog; I took on three games, two old and one new and completed all of them. First up was Hard Reset
, the old school sci-fi FPS. Boy, I tell you I haven�t circle strafed in a game for quite some time. Hard Reset is real old school, a big array of weapons, no reloading, waves of small enemies to pick off... it�s old school Quake
with a grim sci-fi style. The story is told in some nice looking motion comic cutscenes (which are skip-able, bonus points there) but there�s not a lot of sense in them. Something about rogue androids and artificial intelligences running wild and the main guy swears a lot. I didn�t realise it but in my first attempt at playing Hard Reset last year, I can really close to finishing the game. The free DLC did extend the game somewhat and I was grateful for being able to upgrade my weapons more to really waste the robots in the game. Recommend the game but be prepared to play it in bursts, maybe do a level at a time.
This was another game that was described as �wait until it comes down in price before buying it�. Pretty sure I got Driver San Francisco
in the Steam Christmas sale for a real good price but until I play it, it�s money wasted. I�ve not played any of the Driver
games since the PS1 days so I have no idea what to expect from the game.
So there you go, 5 pretty different games and I�d love to get at least one or even two of them played and completed in May. I�ll be putting aside XCOM
once the vote is over and I�ll be returning to it and other games throughout the month. I�ve got some big titles planned for the Backlog Challenge for the Summer months so stay tuned for that. Put your votes of which game you�d like to see me play before May the 2nd in the comments below.
