Backlogs, we all have them, we all love...and hate them. Be it steam sales, PS+ freebies, local store bargain bins, you name, we all buy or get far more games than we can play. So instea d of crying about it, in this thread we actually play and finish our games. So, list all the games you played and/or finished in the last 2 weeks or so (no point going back too long), and give some quick thoughts about it. Let me get the ball rolling, lately I have played and finished:
-Wanderlust Rebirth (PC) - Bought during this current sale, played co-op with Giantbomb's own Absolute Zero, took us about 4-5 hours or so to...reach the final boss. We didnt actually kill him, and therefore got the bad ending, but the game is the opposite of good (has some neat ideas tho) so that ending is good enough for me!
-DmC Virgil's Downfall DLC (PC) - Also bought during the current sale (does that even count as backlog?), this one I really enjoyed. Good lenght (2-3 hours), doesnt overstay its welcome, and Vergil plays quite different from Dante so thats nice. Still love the art design of the new DmC, sorry DMC purists :(
-Papo & Yo (PC) - Really enjoyed this little gem, even if mostly because its based on the creator's shitty life. I admit that if that wasnt the case the game wouldnt be so special, since at its heart its a very simple (and VERY short, took me 2 hours to finish) puzzle platformer. I love the art style, and theres some neat ideas, but mainly, its the theme that got to me (for reasons I rather not go into >_>)
-The Walking Dead 400 Days DLC (PC) - This one was a bit of a dissapointment. Its well done, and it has the same mood as the actual episodes, but the 5 stories in it are so short that you never really get any emotional attachment to any of the characters. Maybe it will mean more when season 2 rolls in, but as a stand alone, its a bit weak.And short, which is a recuring theme in the games Ive been finishing lately.
-McPxel (PC) - Now we're talking. Really liked this one, its completely silly and crazy, but I loved checking out all the gags (which I did, gold in every level baby! too bad theres no achievements >_>). Its a buck on Steam, so give it a go if you want something completely different.
-Scribblenauts Unlimited (PC) - And probably my favorite of the bunch from the last few weeks, I absolutely loved Scribblenauts Unlimited. Maybe because I never played any Scribb game before, but I thought the mechanics were great, the graphics are cute as shit, its quite long if you do all the levels, and overall you just feel good inside (lol) playing it. Probably my biggest surprise in a long time, also the first game where I 100%ed the achievements on Steam
I am currently slowly working on Resident Evil 6 (actually like it, but man those chapters are long) and a few others, so this thread shall be updated soon! What about you, what game did you chip away from the ol'backlog lately?
