I just suffered through Star Wars Rebel Assault 1+2. I love the old cheesy nineties acting and FMVs but my god these two games were awful to play. The second one was better than the first, but that's not saying much. Maybe X-Wing Alliance next?!

 
 

I just replaced all the case fans in my PC with (not cheap) Noctua fans and finally ditched the molex adapters and inline resistors. All 4-Pin PWM connections now! I've made a terrible mistake: it's too quiet in here. I can hear myself think and I hate it

 
 

I've been chipping away at Bully: Scholarship Edition for about 6 years on my PC. Gave it up a while back because it used to crash constantly on Win10. Welp, I've returned thanks to a fan patch that addresses that issue. This game was actually fairly fun.

 
 

Just survived another 5 weeks of work! Yay! They cancelled the next stint, so I'm on lockdown again until January. Games! Just finished Prince of Persia 2008. NOT BAD!!! I liked it more than I thought I would. Heard the epilogue is bad. Gonna ignore it.

 
 

Just knocked out PoP:TTT in a day (two sittings). I can easily rank these three games as SoT > TTT >>>>>>>>>>>>>> WW. I finished Forgotten Sands a while back, so now it's time to play PoP 2008 and put a button on this series run.

 
 

Got back to my old Killer7 PC save and finished it up last night. Uh, guyz... I forgot a huge chunk of the story was about the US Presidential election. Strange timing on that backlog clear. Truly.

 
 

My Steam backlog category has 105 titles in it. Many of them are games I'm right near the end of, so today I knocked Blazing Chrome and KUNAI off the list! Blazing Chrome was great. KUNAI was good, but not amazing. Great to be able to focus again right?

 
 
 
 

Just finished Resistance: Burning Skies which marks the end of my series run. Overall very mediocre bunch of games. If I had to rank them: Retribution > 3 > 2 > Burning Skies >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>))<>((>>>>>>>>>>>>1

 
 

Breezed through both CARRION and INMOST the last couple days (all caps stylization is a real thing lately huh?). I can recommend both for sure! I know CARRION didn't light the world on fire, but it was definitely a cool game and pretty unique!

 
 

I prefer the bulk of my gaming collection to be on PC. Any word on if these No More Heroes ports are timed exclusive on Switch?

 
 

Threw my original Rift up on Amazon. Grandfathered into using it until 2023 but nah, I haven't touched the thing in months, and I got it for free (as well as another one that I sold months back). I'll eventually get an Index or just hold off on VR.

 
 

Sly Cooper 2 is fun, but too damn long. The repeating level themes kind of kill it, and the mission design is great but too often padded with repetitive tasks. I'm at the blimp level and feeling the fatigue. Impressed with the gameplay variety though.

 
 

Finished Shattered Memories last night. It was ok. I liked some of what it did, and absolutely despised it in other ways. The story was ok, but really awkward as some sort of 'remake'. Two hours into Downpour, just got past the mines. So far not bad!

 
 
 
 

Pro Tip: Go get your ears cleaned. At the doctor. With the water thing. I can hear again.

 
 

I've been kicking myself for spooktober games to play. A few years back it was all the Castlevania games, then RE, last year was Silent hill. Then I realized I never finished Shattered Memories or Downpour! So I think those should do.

 
 

Hot take: Super Mario Galaxy is just as janky and awkward to control as the recently maligned Sunshine and 64. Like, are we going to... hand wave... away the gyro and pointer controls? RIP Switch Lite owners.

 
 

It was good to one-hundo Sunshine again! I've been meaning to replay it since it released and had one dropped restart quite a few years ago. It has so many issues, but it stands next to SM64/Odyssey well, and I'll always prefer the open level 3D games.

 
 

Super Mario 35 is kinda meh right? It just devolves into an endless one on one at the end each time and you kind of want it to end. I think I'm good. Cute idea I guess.

 
 

The next Smash fighter should have been Three Houses. Not the Fire Emblem game... just three modest craftsman properties at a reasonable asking price in a nice neighborhood.

 
 

Uh, guys. I live in Boston. I think you might want to turn the truck around?


 
 

Damn. Can't get past a log-in screen on the copy of Rocket League I paid for years ago. It's forcing me to make an Epic account? Ha. No. Really sad to uninstall this but I think it's time. Pour one out for Rocket League. I'm done.

 
 
 

Thinking of maybe developing a shoot 'em up soon. Thinking about it anyway. So here's the age old debate: vertical or horizontal. I like both but there are some considerations I'll put in the comments.

 
 
 

Gosh. You all are posting your new backlog accounts and sharing these fancy pictures. Should I stop maintaining the detailed Excel spreadsheet of my library, backlog, and played games, or willingly give my precious metrics to a data farm?

 
 

Death Stranding for $45 on Steam, or all the inFAMOUS games for $32 on PSN? Neither? Both? Yes?
