Backloggery! An Account


My backlog is daunting. Most progress will be posted there and cross-posted to here.

I'm about 35 hours into Assassin's Creed 3 now and I am really enjoying it. It has some faults but overall I'm liking it better than Revelations and 1, maybe a bit less than Brotherhood and 2. I'm on Sequence 9 and have been running around collecting things/doing all the Homestead missions. Almost done all of them! Tomorrow I do all the ship missions.

Backloggery! An Intro

I shall be using my Giant Bomb blog to make cursory and sometimes lengthy updates using Screenshots on my Backlog progression. On Steam/GoG/Origin my backlog is extensive and requires some time to work through it. Hopefully at some point soon I will get a Google Doc up with my full backlog info but until then most of the games are my unplayed ones on my Steam account found through here. I'll do (bi?)weeky updates and hopefully I'll show some progress. The posts shall detail my progression, some impressions/thoughts and some screenshots. I will get sidetracked by replaying older games and new releases. All posts will not be spoiler free.

This week I have:

  • X-COM: Enemy Unknown (near the end of the game, mothership?)
  • Mark of the Ninja (Halfway through)
  • Assassin's Creed 3
  • Gotham City Imposters F2P (my go-to online shooter for the moment)
  • Jade Empire (just started, a couple hours into the game)
