Mission Cleared: Backlog #6


Backlog: an accumulation of something, especially uncompleted work or matters that need to be dealt with.

Week 5 Progress

I had a tough week overall for gaming, with very little progress due to extenuating circumstances. BUT I completed the game that I really wanted to.

Battletoad’s spaceship puzzles are convoluted and awesome

Battletoads proved to mostly be the game I hoped it would be, and thankfully for the purposes of this blog, only took 5 hours of playtime. The Long Reach got some of my time, but the fact that the game forces you to explore the entirety of your surroundings even when you know the solution, was annoying–and I’m not one to have issues with attention span. It officially goes on the list of DOA titles that I’ll go back to when I need a break from the backlog.

I really wanted to complete this, but… #thelongreach

WEEK 6 – AUGUST 25TH – AUGUST 31st

LEGEND: XGP=XBOX GAME PASS, XGWG=XBOX GAMES WITH GOLD, NS=NINTENDO SWITCH, NSO=NINTENDO SWITCH ONLINE, PC=PC

*Added estimated time remaining to completion*

I will largely be taking this week easy–last week was an approximate 30 hours needed to complete all the games on my list, and I just could not do it due to having my work schedule extend quite a bit and taking a rest due to hand pain (such is this lifestyle, I guess). This week is more likely to be 25 hours, but I promise to be focused on completing these titles. It helps that Tell Me Why is a new release, as well as not available to play until Thursday.

For next week, as long as I can complete at least two of this week’s longer titles, I’m leaning towards Hypnospace Outlaw and maybe a classic I’ve left unplayed, like Gears 3.
