Try to pick up games you aren't actively playing right now. Games you're currently playing can be allowed, but in the spirit of Backlaugust, let's try to make them games you aren't playing at the moment. Make it a game you haven't touched in a month or more if possible.

While I sort of get the intent from this, I don't really follow it. To me, any game is part of the backlog whether you've had it for 10 years or 10 minutes. Until you've actually played and beat it to your satisfaction then it is part of your backlog. Of course, I do get the idea of using the month to perhaps motivate a person to tackle some of those games that have been in the backlog longer but anything you haven't beat or completed in your backlog is valid. As well, I finally started playing Skyward Sword Wii last month after having had it for like 8 or 9 years and not getting around to it. That's what I'm going to keep playing into this month and focusing on beating and completing. Just because I started it a couple weeks ago, I'm not going to set it aside now for a month when it is still a valid entry as something I can complete in my backlog. I guess what I'm saying pokepal is that...


The point is moreso to avoid new releases as I see it.

The only new game I plan on playing this month is Hades, which is an old game but will be newly-released on PS4/5, so I doubt it counts.

Until then, I plan on playing either Katamari Damacy Reroll or Yakuza: Like a Dragon, both of which are in my backlog. Will probably pick them up between Hades runs, too.

Last year we cleared a whopping 44 games and handily outclassed those fake gamers at Negative World we were competing against.



Wooo!! Best thing about last year's Backlaugust!




I was wondering if we scared off Negative World after last year but I see Mop It Up started a thread there so it's just that you are not doing it for both communities.

If she's going to be recast then I wish I grabbed a Leticia Wright Suri toy back when they were still 8 dollars.

In honor of Fuga releasing I'll nominate another "sacrifice your characters" game: https://www.mobygames.com/game/nintendo-ds/valkyrie-profile-covenant-of-the-plume

I'm not 100% certain that hasn't been a Retroactive before, it's been so many years...

Yeah, Sylvie's goal in the moment was to distract the TVA long enough to break in and kill the Time Masters.  Which, kinda, she did.  She probably knew that the TVA would be able to somewhat easily fix it, but it'd literally take all their resources.

Once I finish up my current review game, which should be soon, my big goal is to tackle two sets of classics: Metroid Prime Trilogy and Mass Effect Legendary Edition, completing at least the first game of each of those.

Here's something a little extra I can do since I'm not running the same event on Negative World and with proper forum software this took literal seconds to set up.



Games Completed:



Look at what I can do on a proper Video Game Forum. Eat your heart out Zero!!!
