The Backlog

This is a list of games that I own that have not been completed. Some of them I have never played, while others I didn't get into or enjoy when I did play them. Those I didn't enjoy the first time around may never get another chance if I keep buying new games, but I'm ok with that.

It's also a running log of what I'm playing at the moment. I've added an estimated completion length to most of the games, which for RPGs is the "normal" playthrough. You can normally double that amount if you want to 100% it.

Recent Activity: Super Pokemon Rumble (3DS), Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky (DS), Ni no Kuni (PS3), Mariokart 8 (WiiU).

In PMD: Sky, I finished the Marine Resort story section, and I've been playing the special episodes. They're pretty fun, actually - a fair bit of story, interesting points of view.

I'm playing a bit of Super Pokemon Rumble as well. I'm not really worrying about the world rank anymore, just trying to progress through the special battle royales and team battles in the final areas. They're pretty tough, though.

I decided to go back to Ni no Kuni as my next console game. As planned, I played the opening ~hour or so, to get to the point I was at last time when I hacked my save to have all the various pre-order exclusive familiar tickets. As per last time, I then stopped playing, but I'll actually continue playing now that I have that bit of momentum.

I played some more Mario Kart 8, and I'm done with it. The AI rubberbanding ramps up on 150cc, so all it takes is for one of your 11 opponents to pick up a blue shell on lap 3 and you can rapidly find yourself in 4th or 5th. It's just not fun for me. So it's off the list.
