My Collection: The Survivors

Posted by jay_remedy, 14 September 2013 - * - - - - · 815 views

Okay, this is my final entry in my three part series about my backlog. I decided to drastically reduce my backlog recently and I thought people might be interested to see what I considered was worth my time, so here are the survivors of the culling. The games under the beaten category are games I beat or got all the trophies in under my old PSN and I'm li...

Drastic Attempts To Clear My Backlog...

Posted by jay_remedy, 12 September 2013 - * * * * - · 1033 views

Even though I've made a few attempts to reduce my backlog by selling off games I've never played, it's still at a level that is too high for me, especially with the next generation looming, so I've decided to take drastic steps to get it back to a manageable level once and for all.

First, I had to figure out what was making me accumulate games faster tha...

Need Opinions On JRPGs...

Posted by jay_remedy, 10 July 2013 - - - - - - · 873 views

Here I am again, trying to get rid of games I haven't played yet. For some reason, I've become enamored with JRPGs, even though when I actually play them, I get pretty bored, so I'm thinking about getting rid of some. I want to know which are definite must plays/great games. I don't want mediocre or something like "Well, the game was boring and the sto...

Are These Games Worth Playing?

Posted by jay_remedy, 04 July 2013 - - - - - - · 985 views

I'm considering another purge of my collection. Keep in mind, these are just games on the chopping block, which means I have a ton of other games to play so don't consider if they're worth playing when you have nothing else to play, but if you have a backlog, would you still bother?

The games are:

The Darkness
The Darkness II
Dragon Age II
Duke Nukem F...

Recent Shoe Pickups (May 2013)

Posted by jay_remedy, 25 May 2013 - - - - - - · 603 views

I didn't expect to buy any more shoes this month but Nike/Jordan announced a major restock for today and I was able to get two pairs that I've been wanting for awhile, including my absolute favorite pair of Jordans.

This morning I picked up the Thunder 4's:
These were actually the s...

My Bout With Cancer...

...I know I'm not the most popular member on this site so responses to this could get interesting, but I feel like telling a story so here we go. This is gonna be a long one.

Roughly seven months ago, I was diagnosed with stage 4 testicular cancer. Talk about getting hit with a ton of bricks, it came out of nowhere. I've had minor stomach issues for t...

Borderlands 2...

Posted by jay_remedy, 06 May 2013 - - - - - - · 364 views

...so I've been playing Borderlands 2 lately and I've been borderline obsessed with it. While this might not seem surprising as it was GOTY for a ton of people, the issue is, this game frustrates the shit outta me.

They definitely did not improve on everything from the first.

My major complaints with the game are:

1. First and foremost, 80% of the ene...

Recent Shoe Pickups (Mar-May 2013)

Posted by jay_remedy, 04 May 2013 - - - - - - · 216 views

So besides video games, my other main spending vice is shoes, primarily Jordans and Nikes. I got into them in my last two years in college back in 06/07 then stopped buying because it's an expensive hobby. I just recently got back into them at the end of last year and it worked out pretty well because they're starting to re-release a lot of the shoes I...

Trading In A Chunk Of My Collection...

Posted by jay_remedy, 05 March 2013 - - - - - - · 266 views

...and I could use some help. When I first got my PS3, I wanted to amass a collection of games that I could keep for awhile and I made some dumb rules for myself like needing all games that came before one I bought in a series (ex: if I bought Assassin's Creed 3, I would need to have 1 and 2), needing any game I have in my trophy collection (buy any game...
