2017 Backlog - Off to a good start.
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 Gravity Rush.
With Trails in the Sky FC, and Dragon Quest IV out of the way, this leaves Sword Art Online: Lost Song, Gravity Rush, and Corpse Party: Blood Drive from the initial list. I originally planned to complete all five games before moving onto the next set, but I decided it was best to replace a game when one has been completed. With Dragon Quest's selection for DS/3DS, and Trails in the Sky SC being readily available, it made sense that they would fall in line.
Sword Art Online - Lost Song : I put about 5 hours into this before focusing on DQ IV, and Trails. Of the games on my list, this is the one I want to play the least. It's not a bad game, but it feels a little more "scatter brained" compared to the others. Of course, this is a Sword Art Online game, so I should be expected to be assaulted with campy dialog, and an overabundance of "waifus." I'm not going to lie and say I don't like it.
Gravity Rush : I just started this today and so far have enjoyed it a lot. The gameplay is quite different, and unique. I look forward to putting more time into this one. I only wish I had started it sooner.
Corpse Party - Blood Drive : I've put zero time into this. I honestly shouldn't have multiple handhelds on a list. Perhaps I'll condense it to three?
Dragon Quest V : Seeing as I own DQIV-VIII, and IX, it only makes sense I play them in order. Of course, I'll have to see what the best order to play them might be. Any suggestions?
Trails in the Sky SC : I absolutely love the Trails series games and will no doubt love this one. I certainly want to finish this before Trails 3rd comes out. I'm about two hours into this one now. Hopefully I won't do like I did on FC and complete 90% of the main story, and then take a month break.
So the backlog battle continues. Hopefully I can keep this pace up. Slow, and steady wins the race, eh?
