2017 Backlog - One Down, Hundreds to go.

Posted by Cloyd, in 2017, Video Games, Backlog, RPG 06 April 2017 - - - - - - · 4067 views

Corpse Party: Blood Drive is now in the books. I can safely say I enjoyed the story line, and will look into playing the others in the series. I would recommend playing the previous entries before delving into this one. Blood Drive is the direct sequel to Book of Shadows, which is a sequel/side story of the first release, simply named Corpse Party. Book...


2017 Backlog - Games get boring, play other games.

Posted by Cloyd, in 2017, Video Games, Backlog, RPG 21 March 2017 - - - - - - · 2941 views

Something I've learned in all my years of gaming is that if you start getting bored with a game, its time to play something else. While I admit I tend to play games past the point of complete enjoyment all for the glory of platinum trophies, there are times when one must simply put a game down and play something different. This is why I followed the "budd...


2017 Backlog - Off to a good start.

Posted by Cloyd, in 2017, Video Games, Backlog, RPG 13 February 2017 - - - - - - · 2887 views

The past 13 days have been productive. I was able to complete Dragon Quest IV for the DS, and followed that up with Trails in the Sky FC on PC. Dragon Quest IV was not only the first on the list for me to beat, but became my first of the DQ series, and my first Nintendo DS game to finish. I also put some time into Trails in the Sky SC, Dragon Quest V, and...


2017 - The Year of the Backlog.

Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery, but this is cheapassgamer, we all have an addiction. To most of us, it's collecting more games than we'll ever play and beat. I fully admit that I enjoy seeing my games sit collectively on a shelf. Sometimes I'll simply survey their spines like I'm standing in some turn of the century aged librar...


2014 Gaming Aspirations

Console Gaming, JRPGs, 2014, PS3 and 1 more...
As I close the doors on 2013, I find myself at the brink of a new gaming year. So much has happened those 365 days of yesteryear that playing video games took quite the backseat to other endeavors. Who would have known that getting into a serious relationship would take up so much of my spare time. No more late nights with Jameson on ice, and a Netflix mo...


Xbox Live Reputation

Posted by Cloyd, 03 August 2011 - - - - - - · 393 views

I'll be the first to admit I'm not the strongest online gamer. I've never been to great at FPS/3rd person games not PVP. As someone who is trying to 100% the Gears of War 2 APs, this is frustrating. It seems like, as with most, I don't constantly play and have the techniques down to where I can blind shot people, or know where exactly every item spawns....


Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth

Posted by Cloyd, 29 July 2011 - - - - - - · 291 views

September 20th, 2011 is a day millions of us have been looking forward to since, well, April 11th, 2011 when Gears of War 3 was delayed. I fully admit that I was quite disappointed whenever I realized I wouldn't be getting my sweaty gamer hands on my most anticipated game since Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 7. Of course this made me think, "With the de...


Gears of War 2 - My 100% achievement Goal

Posted by Cloyd, 19 July 2011 - - - - - - · 408 views

With Gears of War 3's release just months away I am on a mission to have Gears of War 2 completed 100%. At the moment I am sitting at 70/79 achievements with only a few posing as such a threat to be completed. I've never been that great of a PvPer. I suppose at 30 now my hand-eye coordination is a little slower than it used to be and I get seriously owned...


Oh how the backlog grows

Posted by Cloyd, 03 May 2011 - - - - - - · 271 views

After typing the title I immediately thought of several poop jokes, but I'll refrain from saying any, but the title stays.

So I initially set off on a Final Fantasy Marathon that, though it may still be going, has slowed and turned into more of a backlog marathon. After playing through Final Fantasy 1 it seemed I needed a break from playing an RPG. So I...


Final Fantasy Marathon - Update #5 - Final Fantasy 2

Posted by Cloyd, 20 April 2011 - - - - - - · 213 views

No other game series takes me back like the Final Fantasy series. The opening music, the credits, the sounds, its been the same for years. I can remember being a kid with nothing to do, but crank out hour after hour into these games as soon as I got home from school. Only stopping to do chores as my mom found them, some homework, and to eat dinner.

Some...
