    ::gamebox::? backlog. what are you rediscovering/catching up on

    Post by passivefamiliar on Fri Sep 06, 2013 8:42 am

    so, we have jukebox thread. do we have a gamebox?

    i just recently got around to play 'the sabetour' i'd bought the game used...months ago and never got around to playing it. between all the ps+ games and anything else i had i just never started it.

    but now im having a nazi killing spree of an adventure. the world changes from black and white to color as you progress which, is dumb but really a nice change and a very unique way to represent the changing world you create. the gameplay is a bit clunky to be honest, but it works fine for what it is. the silenced pistol is your best friend. your other weapon changes depending on how you want to approach a mission but i never leave the silenced behind. its a bit over the top at a few times, but in general. i would have been happy buying this at full price even.

    so, whats anyone else playing that had been lying around collecting dust. or a game you never finished. or a game you thought was dead and gone but surprisingly active. (bioshock multiplayer shocked me, still had players for a room. and section8 too)

    My backlog is gigantic and it doesn't help that I keep getting new games lol. Still need to start working on finishing games I started up but never finished, like Dead Space 2, and start on other titles like the Bioshock series.

    I might see about doing a "Skare's Ten Minute Game Review" series on Fextralife if Fex buys into the idea, solely because of my Plus backlog.

    This week I spent trying games that aren't my usual types but I have because of Plus. For most of them, I spent about ten minutes playing and was done.

    Renegade Ops
    Bloodrayne: Betrayal
    Dungeon Defenders
    Starhawk
    Labrynth Legends
    Closure

    I forgot to mention that my backlog is also being built up with PS+ games.

    I've got Journey and The Last of Us in my backlog at the moment. Been on FF XIV:ARR and just recently completed Ni No Kuni. Tempted to get back into FF XI for some reason too.

    Me too, I see my list growing indefinitely and it gets daunting with every new game I get.

    I did a foolish thing recently and purchased two games since Plus had them on sale. Limbo on Vita was quick (and interesting) but I'm still looking at Journey and going "when will I get to you?"

    Journey is an easy game to pick up and spend 20 or so minutes on it everytime you want to. It's absolutely gorgeous and an amazing game.

    journey is a great little game. you can finish it pretty quick though. one sitting even really. but i was not let down, was happy to have bought it. and have it still installed even.

    im in the same boat as the lot of you. playstation plus free games keep me bogged down. i havent bought a new game in months now, been plenty busy with all the free stuff. saints row 3 has kept me busy awhile now, but its growing stale. sorta. im still deep in the sabetour though. probably be a few days...maybe a week or two even before i get it finished. i keep meaning to go platnium infamous. just have to beat it on hard/evil.

    I have a disc folder full of backlogged games. I can't touch Fallout:NV until I complete everything in Fallout3. Can't touch Two World II until I finish the first one. But good God. Two Worlds sucks. I also have Armored Core V, Dante's Inferno, Catherine, Dark Souls (duh), and a few others that don't come to mind right now. I also discovered the beauty of Turtle Beach headphones. I am SO buying Dead Space again. I got stuff to play.
