Backlog challenge 2013 Part 6

Failure! As much as I expected it, Dark Souls has kicked my ass this month. I've put in some hours in Dark Souls but I'm making slow progress. This is what I expected though, my friends have told me that Dark Souls is a game I�ll make slow progress with. I'm going to keep plugging away at the game but I'm taking a break from my backlog challenge for the month of July to take advantage of some newer games. I'm hoping to avoid a situation where I come to the end of 2013 and I've not played enough games to be able to contribute to my Games of the Year list.

So considering I've knocked off a fair few games off my backlog this year, I'm taking a break this month. With the Steam sale happening in July, I'm sure I�ll be picking up plenty of titles (budget permitting) and hopefully I�ll be able to get through a few of them. I�ve already picked up Rogue Legacy as it seems to be the game de jour and it�s been fun so far. There�s also Shadowrun Returns arriving at the end of the month too. Other games I'm looking to pick up are Far Cry: Blood Dragon, Papa & Yo and Monaco. So I�ll be back in August with a roundup of how I've done and with some more Backlog choices for you to pick.

About Alasdair Duncanone of us since 9:17 AM on 10.13.2007

Alasdair Duncan is that bearded, bespectacled Scotsman that covers PC gaming that is not Fraser Brown. A long time Destructoid community member and forum moderator, he covers adventure, puzzle, FPS and all kinds of games on the PC. Watch, as he adds more games to his Steam library with only the vaguest hope of ever playing most of his games.

Alasdair has been gaming since his mother bought a Commodore 64 back in the early 1980's. He adores Deus Ex, GTA Vice City, Team Fortress 2, Borderlands, Super Mario Brothers 3 and all those weird indie titles on Steam.

You can meet Alasdair at places like PAX where he tries to convince people he isn't a) drunk or b) Irish.
