It's been awhile.

Hi everybody (Hi Dr. Nick!)

It's been awhile since I've written a blog and just felt like chiming in. I'm still here lurking around at deals and checking out DBJ's blog every weekend. Otherwise I game when I can like any adult with some responsibilities and not a lot of time. Just want to sum up what I've done in that regard so far this year.

My limit is 31 games in here, which I'm sure I'm over the limit already. Games are color coded by year acquired, acquisition details are next to that. If it's not coded then I will buy it when I get to it in my backlog.

Acquired in 2011
Acquired in 2012
Acquired in 2013

Questionable Purchases?

Posted by raarar, 24 August 2013 - - - - - - · 1095 views

I've owned a 3DS since there was that small window of the price dropping and being eligible as an Ambassdor to get the 20 free games. I've never played any of the them. Outside of those 20 games I have never purchased anything for it. I plan on buying Mega Man 2 from the eShop for the hell of it and this would be my first official game purchased for the s...

Fallout 3

It's been a long time since I've written a blog and it was basically because I didn't have anything worth writing about. I used to have my weekly/monthly gaming blogs but gaming slowed down so much that I figured there was no point in boring everyone with them. I just wanted to pop in because I beat Fallout 3. I started playing it in January, and decided...

Defeating the problem of a backlog.

Posted by raarar, 21 January 2013 - - - - - - · 129 views

When I first joined the site I had a small backlog of around 25 games. It pretty much consisted of games I found on clearance at Target and games I thought I needed day 1. I came across the site during Christmas of 2008 and lurked for a bit before joining in January of 2009. By the end of the year (And to the dismay of my credit card) my backlog ballooned...

* Note: Games that are not color coded have been "added" to my backlog but will be purchased when needed (and hopefully cheaper). I know this defeats the purp...

Quick time out before my regularly scheduled blog. Interested in helping me rearrange my backlog for 2013? Go here .

Since 2012 has come to a close, time to look back at my fun gaming times. Last year I was lucky enough to have time to beat 22 games (and a few on my ipod). The ones that stand out among the bunch?

Site that suggests games to buy?

Posted by raarar, 31 December 2012 - - - - - - · 71 views

Before I imported my game collection to CAG from IGN, they had a feature that would recommend 30 games you should own based off of your library. I stopped updating my database on IGN because it would always give me errors and just made the switch to here which has been my home since.

I was thinking about how I miss that feature though. Usually when I buy...
