Battling the Backlog: Episode 2: Girls & Guns

Since getting rid of The Bigs 2 and forcing myself to stop playing shmups all the time I've been surprisingly effective at knocking games off my list. Feels good, man. This time on my personal adventure to cut my backlog down to size we have Lollipop Chainsaw, Binary Domain, God Hand and Valkyria Chronicles.

I'd like to say I'm on less of a masochistic note than last time with Demon's Souls and BloodRayne Betrayal, but a couple of these proved to be pretty challenging as well. Luckily none of these games are complete shit like BloodRayne is.

Why I put it off: Kind of the same deal as God Hand. Was borrowing it from the same roommate and he didn�t like it and sold the game when I was about a third of the way through. I bought it a while back and got about to the halfway mark and got frustrated and put it down and I tend to prefer SRPGs on handhelds anyway.

Thoughts: It�s breathtakingly gorgeous, has a gripping and emotional (if a little clich�) narrative and engrossing gameplay. Not really sure there�s much more I can say. Allistair summed it up pretty well the other day.

Rating: Brilliant.

Tell me Destructoid, what should I finish next? If you guys suggest one of these I'll try to prioritize experiencing that game. Off the top of my head, I have these kicking around in various states of completion:

Ico HD, Dead Space 2, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Deadly Premonition, Splinter Cell HD, Skyward Sword, Other M, Outland, A Boy and His Blog, Disaster Day of Crisis, Parasite Eve II, Super Metroid (LOL), Mega Man 9, Lit, Metroid Prime 3, Okami, Recettear: Item Shop's Tale, Lone Survivor, Gish, Half Life 2 (doubleLOL), Trauma Team, Conduit 2, Cursed Mountain, Lost in Shadow, Read Dead Redemption, MGS Twin Snakes, Killer 7, EDF Insect Armageddon, Fallout New Vegas, Skyrim, Dead Rising 2, Mario Sunshine, Mario Galaxy 2, Killzone Liberation, Corpse Party.
