My vote goes to Mowing March and Achieving April ;)

And yes, I'm totally up for console games this time: my XBLA backlog is HUGE and I want to chew onto Arkham City's story mode, so I think that I will include at least two Xbox games in my next list... let's show some console love! :D

Oh, I beat Deadlight too. I actually went the extra mile and searched for all collectibles (with the help of a guide here and there) but man, the last act really gave its best in terms of bad platforming and low reactivity... the only achievement I'm missing in which you need to complete the game from start to finish without dying is insane! However, the story held up well till the end, and while being very cliché it was entertaining to follow.

Overall, a fun game which can be very frustrating at times. I hope to hear more from Tequila Works soon... :)

yeah, I have gotten rid of most of my physical 360 and ps3 games but i have a decent digital backlog on both as well, so it will be good to get some of those out of the way.

Just finished Batman Arkham Asylum. Very good game, and looking forward to playing Arkham City, which will probably be for April. So that just leaves Colonial Marines to finish for the month, then maybe try to finish a bonus game

So I totally suck and haven't finished a one yet. I'll probably be able to get through Murder She Wrote and Blackwell and maybe Portal but Puzzle Quest has something close to 600 puzzles so probably not gonna happen and I'm pretty sure barring me moving to a deserted island tomorrow with electricity, a computer, no internet access and just that one game on my hard drive that Arcanum isn't going to happen either.

I really like the idea of this but I guess I am just a good collector of games but a lousy player of them. :oops:

I don't see myself getting above my 50% completion of this months goals. I haven't started Chronicles of Riddick, and Dustforce isn't really drawing me in the same way Super Meat Boy did. Hopefully I can free up some time in the next week to attempt at least one of them, but I think they both will end up in a "maybe some other time" pile that I never touch but can't let myself uninstall.

You mean Puzzler World?

I figured that one wasn't really a finish it sort of game, more of a nice change of pace for whatever else was going on.

Yes Puzzler World. That is what happens when you are rushing typing a reply while also rushing typing a reply on Reddit at the same time about how Puzzle Quest 2 is a decent game to use the NEW299 code on at Big Fish. :-P

No big deal if you dont finish the games, I initially didnt think I'd get them all done (especially with Psychonauts as one of the games before) but Batman ended quicker than I thought and I totally cheated my way through Machinarium with a walkthrough whenever I got stuck at all, so barring any setbacks with getting together with my coop partner to play Aliens it looks like I'll get all 4 done. On the plus side, if you try as part of your four and dont like it at least you know and it can basically be mentally discarded from your backlog (why play something you wont enjoy right?)

I think I remember it taking a bit to get into when I played it on 360. Once I got pretty good at being stealthy and brawling, it got a lot better.

At this point, you have beaten 4 games, so Batman is extra.

Since I'm only playing Aliens Coop I needed something to play single player so I started Condemned Criminal Origins. Its not bad so far, kinda dated a little bit, but great atmosphere. Hoping to finish it and Aliens before the end of February

By the time I saw this thread, I had already finished 2 games in February, so I decided to do the challenge with games I picked. Proud to say I finished my 4 just an hour ago. They were Spec Ops: The Line, Sonic Generations, Borderlands 2, and Fallout New Vegas (The Mr. House Ending). For FO:NV, I started from the beginning and decided I'd be done once I finished the House ending since I had never played that one.

February was a good gaming month for me since school started out pretty slowly and I am taking less credits than normal.

Jesus, way to make everyone here look bad lol. New vegas and borderlands 2 are basically bigger than any other game played by anyone, and you beat them both

Okay, I'm in if someone needs a partner. All I ask is:

1) Don't pick a bad game to be a ****... I have a bunch that came with bundles that I don't want to play.
2) If they are part of a series, pick them in order, or just leave them. (IE: Don't pick Bioshock 2 without Bioshock 1... ME2 w/0 ME1 etc etc)

This will have to be for March, can't do 4 games in the next 7 days. :D

To be fair, FO: NV was mostly focused on the main story and a few relevant side plots. I think it was about 17-20 hours. But yeah, I had a lot of free time these past few weeks.

The question is do we switch partners for March or do we keep the same pairings? There seems to be benefits to both options

I think this is a good idea, but I'm going to just see how many games I can finish in the month of march. I figure I'll start with the shortest and work my way up to the longest. Should hopefully burn up a bunch of the indie games in my backlog if nothing else.

Okay I am going to have to make a Detour because Raptr is giving away Dead Island if you have a high rank in another zombie game so I'm going to get started on Walking Dead.

Also, I kind of got hooked on a hidden object game from Big Fish that they gave me a free beta version on and then I bought the released when it came out, plus I've been trying to finish up The Cat Lady and I've been playing a tablet Match 3 game as well so yes I have been getting sidetracked.

I don't know that I'll get any of my Four/Five done but on the plus side I've in general been playing games more than usual lately so that's something.

Finished up BioShock. Boo ya: 4/4.

This was totally awesome, and it is great to see people get to enjoy games that I enjoyed.

Another thing I did this month was set up my backlog on backloggery, and it is scary:

I use the site. It is indeed scary to see how many games you have unbeaten, but I like it for the ability to see when I'm buying to many games. Here's mine:

http://www.backloggery.com/jugglenaut

I like the idea of trying to change up the challenge every month a bit, whether it's beat the most games, or maybe picking a few genres to beat in a month, or something. As a joke I was thinking for March we could have everyone play a game that involves some sort of political drama for the first half, then after the Ides of March befall us, we could switch over to straight out war games. Less genre specific, but something moreso focused on what kind of stories we could get each other to play. Either way, I'm carrying Chronicles of Riddick into the next month.

I like that idea a lot. It would be fun to have a group of games that a lot of us are going through, and including the Ides of March is fun, too.

Those are pretty solid ideas. I think it would be cool to have a game or two that a bunch of people are playing around the same time. I do know that one of the games I'm going to want as part of my 4 will be the new Tomb Raider, and maybe Bioshock Infinite depending on how I'm doing when that releases, but I may just have that as part of April.
