Welcome to another glorious week! With the summer winding down, what better time to dust off the cobwebs of that backlog of yours! Here’s what we’re up to as Fall approaches:
Last week was pretty light for me. Finished the first novel of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series: The Gunslinger (expect a review for that on the site relatively soon). Moved on to reading The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch as a brief side-activity before returning to King’s 7-book epic.
On the game side of things, dropped all PS4 games in the backlog (brother is taking it back to school) in favor of some Xbox One, Switch and PC stuff. Witcher 3, Sonic Mania, and an upcoming game I’m excited to share more on in the coming weeks: Wizard Fu’s Songbringer.
New game purchases: 1
Games beaten: 0
Net backlog: +1
Starting Survivor: Redemption Island. It is labeled as the worst season and I am very much a masochist for forcing myself to watch the entire thing.
Still 2/9 in Mythic ToS Progression and working on completing La Mulana. Decided to drop Persona 5: NG+ to complete other games on the back log including Horizon: Zero Dawn. Like Kei I decided to replay through Fire Emblem: Binding Blade as well as both Fire Emblem: Blazing Blade and Sacred Stones.
Currently playing through the campaign of Starcraft: Remastered, which released last week.
I’m honestly not doing much. Slowly chugging along through P4G and, not so much playing BotW, more like punishing myself with one of the most fruitless challenges in gaming for an article.
8 chapters into FE6. Girlfriend stole the PS4 so I may dip into the PS3 backlog and finally play Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. Other than that, started playing Fire Emblem Heroes, which hasn’t been an altogether terrible experience.
