After a lot of consideration I have decided to pass on Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD. Reading reviews it sounds like the content is minimal and they screwed up the controls on it. The controls is the main reason I loved the Tony Hawk series, you could feel good playing with minimal effort and do tons of tricks. RIP Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD, may your delisting go smooth tomo.

General question to the thread here... how does everyone define "backlog"? 

Every game that I have (physical, digital, DLC) that I eventually plan on playing through/beating.  With the onslaught of the Games with Gold, I've been trying to catalog everything so I have a working idea of what I can hold off on buying in the future.  I also tend to be bit of a completionist (all achievements) but I'm working on getting over that.

 

http://backloggery.com/TheBriefChef - My backlog currently sits at about 50% unfinished.  But it's slowly dropping.

Thanks to everyone for the input on my next game to work through- I'll work on starting Red Dead Redemption shortly

Added you to my backloggery multitap, seeing others work through their backlog motivates me to keep working on mine.

Wait how do you get the videos to just show up? Not be a link?


It's called embedding and I'm still trying to figure it out.

On mobile it doesn't often work, but on my laptop just a Youtube or Twitter link is enough for the embed to work automatically.

Wow, very surprised to see a Gorilla Biscuits reference here!  :applause:

What can I say, I'm all about that PMA.

If the DLC were included with the levels from THPS3 I'd be more inclined to get it. I played it on PS3 and it was a nice nostalgia trip, the controls weren't as bad as some people say. It's delisting is no great loss, though.

Hmm, the winners (top 4?) of the Dragonball FighterZ tournament at Evo were given Xbox Ones as prizes. Maybe Microsoft has a marketing deal entirely, rather than just premiering the gameplay at their conference during E3. Otherwise I would have expected PS4s at Evo, it's pretty Sony heavy during this generation because of the popularity of the console.

I didn't realize that Shadow of Mordor was getting an update to import data to Shadow of War. I'm even more impressed and going to back to finish the story mode instead of dicking around murdering endless orcs.

To me backlog is whatever I give a shit about that I want to play. Being a digital only owner on the X1 (for the most part, I'm still getting KH3 on disc thanks to the Target glitch years ago where my pre-order is $36) there are games that I just regret buying or don't feel the need to play anymore. Obviously since It's digital I can't trade in my copy so I'm stuck with it For example, Runbow is not part of my backlog despite only playing two minutes of it. Because I will probably never play it again.

 

I am actually down to 42 X1/360 games in my backlog because of this point. If I were to count games i don't give a shit about anymore probably 60+.

 

Edit: Can't forget about OG XBox backlog at this point either. Though I'm sure that will be minimal if there are not going to be a lot of titles like Phil Spencer hinted.

 

That said 42 s way too low and I need to buy some more stuff on sale. So bring on the deals!


... go to sleep.

Yeah, it was mentioned already in this thread. They probably 'ran' out once people figured out they can cash out for them every 4 or 5 days.

Stop wasting your money on videogames and sign up at prizerebel! Just do some simple and short surveys and in a couple of weeks time, you'll have enough credit to buy a $60 release! Or PSN/Xbox credit. Why pay money to fund your hoarding addiction when you can do it for freeeee!!!

Never noticed anything screwed up with the controls, not having all the music was a bit of a letdown but that's just the way it goes.

That backloggery site looks pretty interesting. How hard is to keep it up to date? Do you have to enter everything manually?

From what I've seen and tried it is just manual entry.  I use Grouvee.com (stupid name) for my list at the moment.  There are a couple others as well out there.

All this backlog talk reminds me why I avoid games like Andromeda (which I'm still enjoying a lot).

 

I enjoyed Heavy Rain so much that I played it almost in one sitting, so I would probably like Beyond even if it's flawed.

heavy rain is one of my favoorite games of all time

 

beyond is one of my most disappointing, i couldn't wait for it to be over

This sparked my interest for a second, but the more I look the more I dislike what will be a dust collection nightmare. Not to mention that it has no cool metal switches.....Atari needs switches.

It's all manual entry.  Took some down time to get mine all up and running, but I prefer it to a spreadsheet.  Helps keep me on task and impulse purchase habits in check a bit as well.

Added you as well.  Better to work towards goals with a group instead of solo
